This year at San Diego Comic Con, DC Entertainment and DC Collectibles pulled out all of the stops to make sure fans knew they were hard at work to bring people the products they want! You wanted more toys from ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’, DC Collectibles has answered! You wanted more diverse offerings in the ‘Icons’ line, and DC Collectibles has got you covered! You wanted more distinct looking art styles for the ‘Designer Series’, and DC Collectibles is bringing you two new art-styles plus additional figures from an already popular one! Here’s the full run down of the new action figure offerings displayed by DC Collectibles this week at SDCC 2015!
DC Entertainment’s ‘Arrow’ & ‘The Flash’
Over the last year or two, DC Collectibles toyline based on popular live action series ‘Arrow’ has been flying off of shelves as soon as the stores can stock them, and the toys based on ‘The Flash’ are quickly catching up (no pun intended)! People were begging for more toys from both of these hit series and now they’re getting them!
DC Collectibles latest offerings from ‘Arrow’ include a Laurel Lance Black Canary, Unmasked Malcolm Merlyn, and an updated version of the ‘Arrow’ himself!
From ‘The Flash’, the number of figures in this line is doubling! While right now we only have The Flash and Captain Cold available to us, now we can look forward to both Heatwave and The Reverse Flash coming our way later this year!
DC Collectibles Icons Series
The DC Collectibles Icons Series is meant to bring collectors and fans the definitive 6″ scale version of each character, complete with storyline specific accessories to match to whatever look or design has been chosen to represent these characters. So far we had mostly been getting the usual big names like Batman and Superman for this line, so some of these figures that DC Collectibles announced this weekend should serve as a pleasant surprise!
This week at San Diego Comic Con 2015, DC Collectibles revealed all new Icons figures of Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond), Green Lantern (John Stewart), and The Joker! Firestorm isn’t a character we see made very often, and it’s literally been nearly half a decade since we got a proper John Stewart figure from DC Collectibles, so this serves as quite a nice line up change!
To top things off, at the end of the weekend DC Collectibles added one more figure to their display case, showing off an all new DC Collectibles Icons Static Shock figure! This is the first ever proper figure we have gotten of Static Shock, so it’s certainly going to be one to keep an eye out for!
DC Collectibles Designer Series
The ‘Designer Series’ of figures from DC Collectibles exists to bring the artwork of specific comic book artists to life in plastic form in your collection. So far we have had several amazing waves of figures based on the artwork of Greg Capullo, a series from Jae Lee, and we have a new series based on the art of Terry Dodson on the way in the next few months! Now DC Collectibles has announced a few new waves of the “Designer Series’ fans can look forward to!
First up is a series based on the artwork of Lee Bermejo, featugin fan favorite characters like Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor, and Green Lantern Hal Jordan!
Next we have a wave based on the art of Darwyn Cooke featuring Adam Strange, Harley Quinn, Batman, and Supergirl with Krypto!
Finally we have another all new wave of figures based on the artist that helped launch this toyline, Greg Capullo! This new wave will include updated takes on The Joker, Wonder Woman, The Flash (no images released), and Survival Batman (no images released).
If you’re a DC Comics fan and a collector, it seems like DC Collectibles has been looking out for your best interests this year with some of the best product offerings yet! Be sure to stay tuned to ScienceFiction.com for all the latest DC Collectibles updates from SDCC 2015!
