September 11, 2012

Captain Action® Limited Run Variant Created for Holiday Season

 

 

SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 09/10/2012 – Round 2, LLC and Captain Action Enterprises are excited to announce the release of the first official variant figure set for the new Captain Action toy line – Captain Action Arctic Adventurer.

The Arctic Adventurer figure set gets Captain Action ready for top-secret polar missions. To camouflage himself against the stark whiteness of the Arctic, Captain Action gets a customized white and blue permafrost insulated suit, white gloves and white boots.

Captain Action, the popular superhero and “master of disguise” toy from the 1960s, returned to toy shelves earlier this year along with new costume sets featuring characters from Marvel Comics.

“We’re excited to offer this holiday present to fans and collectors,” said Michael Murphy, Creative Director of Round 2, LLC. ”This is not only a fun addition to any collection, but also a great gifting opportunity”.

Arctic Adventurer includes the 11 ½” super-posable body introduced earlier this year, cloth costume with an all-new color scheme with hat, gloves and boots in variant colors.  Spy equipment includes laser gun, belt and holster, lightning sword and sword holder and an additional set of ungloved hands.  Captain Action Arctic Adventurer will be available in one style and offered in limited quantities.

“We felt it important to offer something cool and fresh during the Holiday season.  This time of year evokes so many wonderful memories for Captain Action collectors and we wanted to provide that for the next generation,” said Ed Catto of Captain Action Enterprises.

Captain Action Arctic Adventurer will be available at Toys R Us, hobby shops and comic shops nationwide in late October.

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, 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.
