WonderCon's 2010 DC Direct Blackest Night Exclusive Figures
April 1, 2010

There was a rumor kicking around for several weeks on the DC Direct boards of a set of DCD Wondercon exclusive figures.   This week the rumor became fact and this showed up on the Graphitti website:


Now before everyone panics and compares these to the "Rainbow Hal" exclusives from SDCC last year, you should know that according to the official website, it looks like these will ALSO be sold at C2E2 in Chicago.    If that is the case, I think it’s a fairly safe bet to assume that these will also be available at SDCC this year.

The information above does say they are "Limited Edition" figures, but it doesn’t say how many that edition was (like the 1500 of each of the Rainbow Hals) but to be available at multiple cons it would have to be a larger edition.  

I applaud DC Direct for making these available at multiple conventions!

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.
