Batman The Animated Series Dark Knight Batman and Robin Resin Busts

A Diamond Select Toys release! In Gotham City, there are many stories about Batman, and in nearly every story there is a Robin. These resin busts of Batman and Robin are based on a child’s story about the dynamic duo, as seen in the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Legends of the Dark Knight.” Inspired by the classic comic book storyline, the episode showed a bigger, more brutal Batman and his new Robin, Carrie Kelly, taking on mutants in a dystopic future Gotham City. Dark Knight Batman measures over 6 inches tall, while Dark Knight Robin measures approximately 5 inches tall; both are in scale to other Batman: TAS busts, and each sits atop an art-deco pedestal inspired by Gotham City architecture. Each bust is limited to only 3,000 pieces, and comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity in a full-color box.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
