Bleacher Creatures—the innovative licensing manufacturer whose incredibly true-to-life plush figures represent the greatest sports, entertainment and inspirational icons in the world—will introduce a dramatically expanded line of plush figures inspired by DC Comics characters via its license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment. The new characters follow on the tremendous popular success of Bleacher Creatures’ Batman Classic TV Series and Man of Steel lines released last fall.

The 2015 line of Bleacher Creatures’ DC Comics plush will be released in three waves from May through August, and include figures based on DC Entertainment comic books, films, and television characters. In addition to such outsize characters as Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern, the line will feature a variety of Batman plush inspired by the 1989 Batman theatrical film and The Dark Knight Trilogy.

“We’re thrilled that our initial line with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment proved so popular that now we’re expanding to include some of the greatest DC Comics characters of all time,” says Matthew Hoffman, founder and president of Bleacher Creatures. “Men, women, kids, and kids at heart will all find heroes (and villains!) who are every bit as inspiring in 10-inch-tall plush form as their counterparts in comic books, films, and TV…but who are, dare I say it, a lot cuter.”

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.
