Tonner Doll Company Wonder Woman Update
January 23, 2018

We began development of our version of Wonder Woman 2017 on August 12, 2016.  To many of you (and you’ve been very patient) that may seem unbelievable but it’s real.  Creating a licensed product of such a notable character in the detailed manner we’ve pursued does take a very… long…. time.  So, without great fanfare, I’m able to give you actual shipping information.

 

The product is due to air ship from Hong Kong this week and should begin shipping from our warehouse in Pennsylvania beginning the week of January 29th.  Other than stands and the sword and shield accessory packs the product is completely sold out.  But we will be showing some new Wonder Woman items at Toyfair in February, so if you missed this version you’ll have plenty of opportunity coming up.

Part of the development delay was due to the engineering and molding of a totally new body we’re using for this Wonder Woman doll.  I believe it’s one of my best, if not the best, body sculpt I’ve ever done and hope you feel the same.

 

I really want to say thank you for your patience and support during all of 2017 (and the first twelfth of 2018!) while you’ve waited for this line to happen.  It’s done, you’ll have it soon!

All my best,

Robert

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.
