Goldenagefigurines.com of La Jolla, California has just released The Original Golden Age Black Terror vs. Killer Robot, the third figurine in their Golden Age Comics Figurine Collection. Sculpted at 1/21 scale and standing 3.84″ (9.74 cm) tall, this limited edition, hand painted resin collectible is inspired by the cover to Exciting Comics #45 (March 1946), drawn by the amazing Alex Schomburg. It is scaled to complement the existing series of Marvel and DC superhero figurines produced by Eaglemoss of England. The Original Golden Age Black Terror vs. Killer Robot features a gold foil label, individual numbering, and comes in a white box with a color printed sleeve and a protective soft black foam interior. To avoid breakage in transit, the figures and base are packaged separately, requiring a small amount of superglue to assemble. It can be purchased directly from our shop, through eBay, or on Amazon. Tech savvy collectors can also purchase it with Bitcoin. Prices vary from $28.99 to $33.99 USD, depending on which outlet you purchase from. Only 175 produced, with less than 50 currently remaining in stock; there will be no second edition.
For those unfamiliar with the character, The Black Terror first appeared in Exciting Comics #9 (January 1941) published by Nedor Comics. His alter ego was pharmacist Bob Benton, who formulated a chemical he called “formic ethers,” giving him various superpowers, such as super strength, near invulnerability, and tremendous stamina. He used these powers to fight crime with his sidekick, Tim Roland, known as Kid Terror. The Black Terror arguably had the coolest costume of the Golden Age superheroes and was one of the publisher’s most popular characters, surviving until 1949. We should note that the character portrayed in this sculpture is strictly the public domain version of The Black Terror and should not be confused with any later portrayals produced by publishers in more recent years.

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.
