Weta is proud to announce: Reepicheep!
June 25, 2008

The fourth and last of the statues in Weta’s range of collectibles from Disney’s The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian is now available for pre-order on Weta’s website.

Short in stature but lacking nothing in courage, the irrepressible Reepicheep leads the valiant talking mice of Prince Caspian’s motley Narnian army.  In service to a righteous cause and with honour as his badge, Reepicheep is unwavering in his sense of duty and carries himself with all the chivalrous decorum of a true King’s knight.  Though they might at first laugh, none who feel the sting of his flashing rapier doubt his mettle for long.

The Reepicheep statue is a study in indomitable attitude. This wonderful character has been sublimely realised by Weta sculptor Greg Tozer, based on a drawing by Weta’s Nick Keller, the artist also responsible for designing Reeipcheep’s intricate rapier for the film.

The piece comes in a STRICTLY LIMITED EDITION OF 500 and measures 8.5” (22 cm) H x 8.25” (21 cm) W x 7” (18 cm) D


Still to be released is a range of miniature helmets from both the first Narnia films.

Now that the full range of statues is available – sales are bound to start taking off, so if you haven’t already joined our affiliate programme, you should consider it. J

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.
