Originally reported by USA Today, our friends at DC Collectibles have revealed a massive new selection of figures based on the Timm-verse (named as such for artist Bruce Timm, whose style defined the look of the shows) that began in the iconic 90’s fan favorite, ‘Batman: The Animated Series’! The initial ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ line from DC Collectibles launched a little over a year and a half ago to booming success that has yet to slow down. Now at Toy Fair 2016, DC Collectibles has announced that the series looks to expand well past the initial plans of ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ and ‘The New Batman Adventures’ to bring us characters from all over the Timm-verse!
Most fans of ‘B:TAS’ followed the show from start to beginning, and ultimately into it’s follow up series ‘Batman Beyond’, which brought us an aged Bruce Wayne working alongside a new young protege named Terry McGuiness, who has now taken up the mantle of The Batman! Since this line first launched, people have been hoping to see figures based on the ‘Batman Beyond’ series and it looks as though their prayers have been answered! DC has announced a ‘Batman Beyond’ figure 3-pack that will include Batman Beyond, Bruce Wayne, and Wayne’s faithful hound Ace!
If you’re in the mood for some futuristic styled ‘Batman’ but don’t want to go as far as ‘Beyond’, you’ll probably love the ‘Tales Of The Dark Knight’ set that is based on the ‘New Batman Adventures’ episode of the same name; which is in turn based on Frank Millers iconic ‘The Dark Knight Returns’! This figure 3-pack includes Batman, Carrie Kelly Robin, and The Mutant Leader!
Moving on to something a little bit different but still pretty awesome, DC Collectibles have announced a new figure 5-pack dubbed ‘Girls Night Out’ that stars some of the DC Animated Universe’s greatest heroines and femme fatales! This set includes Poison Ivy, Livewire, Supergirl, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn. These figures are all based on their ‘New Batman Adventures’ designs.
While we’re on ‘The New Batman Adventures’, let’s not forget the other awesome new figures coming our way from that series including Firefly, Anti-Fire-Suit Batman, Harley Quinn, and The Joker!
If you’d prefer to stick to the classics, than DC Collectibles still definitely has you covered with a huge influx of new characters from the original ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ like Scarface, Harvey Bullock, and Talia Al Ghul!
Plus we’re getting the massive special over-sized Clayface figure…
and this special holiday ‘Christmas With The Joker’ figure!
To top it all off, the real icing of the cake here is the reveal of the gigantic ‘Batwing’ vehicle, which looks like it’s trying to put last years beautifully crafted Batmobile to shame! The Batwing is probably the largest vehicle ever produced by DC Collectibles, with a wingspan of a whopping 36″! It features lights, a sliding cockpit door, and has room for two 6″ ‘B:TAS’ figures inside!
