New York Toy Fair is almost upon us and with it comes a plethora of toys and collectibles that we will be more than willing to empty our wallets for . Such is the case with DC Collectibles offering this year. Here is the official word as well as a look as to what you can expect.
DC Collectibles, the exclusive line of toy and collector items from DC Entertainment (DCE), will showcase its exciting 2016 product line-up at New York Toy Fair including a first-ever 6’’ premium action figure line based on Warner Bros. recent and upcoming DC films including Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. In addition to the film-inspired line, in 2016 DC Collectibles will introduce a wide array of new statues, action figures and collectible items based on DCE’s comic and media properties and feature iconic characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and more.
The new, ongoing DC films action figure line was created specifically with toy collectors in mind, delving deep into character line-ups and offering up to 40+ points of articulation – the most articulation points ever produced by DC Collectibles.
“This is the first time DC Collectibles has made action figures based on DC films, and with this much articulation and attention to detail, we’re not holding anything back,” said Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. “Its exciting to see our DC film slate bring to life so many great DC characters, and DC Collectibles is following suit with our action figure line. This line will include everything from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman, and even the obscure characters that will pop up in the cinematic universe. I can’t wait for fans of our films to get their hands on these figures.”
The first wave of DC films action figures will hit stores in Fall 2016 and will include Zod and Faora from Man of Steel and Armored Batman and Superman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first Suicide Squad action figures are set to release in 2017.
DC Collectibles will also debut an all-new Designer Series action figure line dedicated to fan-favorite DC Comics character, Harley Quinn. Taken straight from the pages of DC Comics, the 6.75’’ action figures are inspired by the art style of critically acclaimed artist Amanda Conner, and will feature Connor’s most popular character designs of the Crown Princess of Crime and each will include custom accessories.
“I’m really excited to be a part of this new line from DC Collectibles,” said Harley Quinn artist and co-writer Amanda Conner. “It’s been a fun, wild ride over the past few years, and I’m so happy that Harley’s popularity continues to explode. Seeing my designs, and the many different personalities of Harley Quinn, brought to life as action figures is simultaneously thrilling and humbling (if that’s even possible). This toy line adds a whole new level of whacky, wonderful insanity to the Harley world, and the fans are going to love it!”
DC Collectibles will also expand the bestselling Batman: The Animated Series action figure line based on the award-winning Warner Bros. Animation TV series, producing new action figures as well as a first-ever 36’’ Batwing. The Batman: The Animated Series Batwing marks the second vehicle from the line following last year’s hit Batmobile replica, and will feature light, slide-able door access and room for two 6’’ action figures.
“Our popular Batman: The Animated Series line continues to strike a nostalgic chord with fans and it’s really exciting to see the positive reception,” said Kevin Kiniry, vice president, Creative Services, at DC Entertainment. “We were the first to bring fans the Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile scaled for 6’’ action figures, and we’re very proud to also be the first to bring fans the Batwing at this scale as well.”
Other new products scheduled for 2016 include additions to the highly popular DC Comics Icons action figure line, as well as first-ever corresponding accessory packs for the Icons figures. DC Collectibles will also debut a BlueLine Jim Lee Superman action figure – a follow-up to last year’s hit BlueLine Batman action figure- and will include a sketch from world-renowned artist Jim Lee. Additions to the Greg Capullo and Darwyn Cooke Designer Series action figure lines are also on tap for 2016, as are new statues from the bestselling DC Comics Bombshells series. The toy maker will also debut new Batman: Black & White statues and new additions to the hit DC Super-Pets Plush toy line.
A wide array of Wonder Woman product will be released in 2016, including a Wonder Woman action figure 3-pack featuring the Amazon Princess’ first appearance in DC Comics’ ALL-STAR COMICS #8, as well as other iconic looks.
