@Schleich Gets Super With DC Comics
January 22, 2015

The partnership between Warner Brothers Consumer Products and Schleich was officially announced back in October of last year, however Schleich had product on display at the DC Comics booth all the way back in July for Comic Con and even had an SDCC 2014 exclusive Joker figure.

 

Now the new DC figures are out in the wild and showing up at places like Toys R Us:

The full first wave line up looks to be:  3 versions of Superman, 2 versions of Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash and Darkseid.

I didn’t see any of the Joker at the TRU I was at, so I’m not sure if he’s shipping as part of wave 1 or is staying a SDCC exclusive.

We will see in a few weeks how the line will expand at Toy Fair 2015.

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.

    I think that the Joker will be available in a two-pack with Batman.

  • George says:

    If the Joker is available on its own, I might pick one up.

  • John says:

    The Joker is available in a two pack with Batman. I seen it at my location and it was selling for $20.00.

  • Pete says:

    Packaging is poor. Is there a window on the batman and joker 2 pack box set?

    • Donn says:

      I already have two of the three Superman figures and the third one is on the way. These figures are very nicely detailed and painted really well. The photos do not do them justice. The packaging is actually nice since I was able to hang them off of a nail on my wall with the rest of my collection. It is nice because the figure is easily seen and the box does not take away from that.
