Recommended Posts

DC Collectibles has released info and images for their 2018 San Diego Comic Con reveals including a new Batman: The Animated Seires Batman and Batcycle set, new Aqaman Movie Statues, BTAS figures, Justice League Animated Series figures, DC Essentials and more. Check out details and images for everything down below.

DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles from DC Entertainment, will make a huge splash at Comic-Con International: San Diego with exciting new statue and action figure reveals, headlined by a stunning statue series based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly anticipated Aquaman film, hitting theaters December 21, 2018. DC Collectibles will also expand its bestselling Batman: The Animated Series action figure line and add new artists to the company’s cutting-edge DC Artists Alley designer vinyl collection. New character additions are also planned for several of DC Collectibles’ most popular action figure and statue lines, including DC Bombshells, Batman: Black & White, DC Essentials and more.

Making waves just in time for the King of Atlantis’ big-screen debut, DC Collectibles will release three new statues based on the character appearances in the upcoming Aquaman film. Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Amber Heard’s Mera and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta will be re-imagined with impeccable attention to detail as individual 12" sculptures. The statues will come aboard store shelves beginning November 2018.

DC Collectibles will also add new characters to its fan-favorite Batman: The Animated Series (BTAS) action figure line and debut the company’s first-ever Batcycle, as seen in the award-winning TV series. Scaled for 6" action figures, the Batcycle measures 9.25" long and includes a variety of light-up features and two free-spinning wheels that enable the bike to turn. The double-sided display base allows fans to “park” the Batcycle in the Batcave or on the streets of Gotham City. The Batcyle set will also include one BTAS Batman action figure that features two interchangeable helmet heads, new articulation points that allow the character to “ride” the Batcycle and a poseable cape. DC Collectibles will also release new individual BTAS action figures in 2019, including Two-Face, Gray Ghost, H.A.R.D.A.C. and Scarecrow. Each character will feature unique accessories based on their appearance in the animated series.

In addition to new Batman: The Animated Series action figures, DC Collectibles will also debut 6" action figures based on the Justice League animated series that aired from 2001 to 2004. The Justice League animated figures will be available exclusively for members of the DC Universe digital subscription service beginning in fall 2018.

“Our animated action figures are a staple of DC Collectibles, and we’re so excited to expand the line into the Justice League animated series and add more Batman: The Animated Series characters that fans have been asking for,” said Jim Fletcher, executive creative director of DC Collectibles at DC Entertainment. “As this line continues, we are constantly challenging ourselves to think of new ways to bring the animated series to life. We hope fans enjoy giving their figures a ride on the new Batcycle and recreating their favorite scenes from the show with the intricately detailed display base.”

Also in 2019, DC Collectibles will welcome two new popular artists—Joe Ledbetter and Chrissie Zullo— to the DC Artists Alley line. Both artists will bring their unique art style to the DC Universe, re-imagining some of DC’s most iconic characters as 7" designer vinyl figures. Ledbetter, known for his distinct bold lines and vibrant palette, will put his signature spin on Batman, Penguin, Catwoman and Robin. Zullo will debut her dreamy and whimsical transformations of Batgirl, Hawkgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Woman.

“I’m a huge Batman fan and to have the opportunity to work with DC Collectibles on a set of Batman characters is a huge deal in my world,” said Ledbetter. “I just love the idea of a bat in a Batman suit, a penguin as the Penguin, etc. There’s something there that’s quite funny and interesting and really excites me. I like to think that these animal Batman characters inhabit a parallel universe where Gotham City is entirely populated by anthropomorphic critters, including the Caped Crusader himself. I think the fun, enthusiasm and love of Batman, Robin, Penguin and Catwoman will shine through on these designer toys and I hope they find a special place on collector’s shelves.”

“Working on DC Artists Alley is a total dream come true,” said Zullo. “Not only do I get to work with the great people at DC Collectibles and an incredible sculptor, Irene Matar, but the process of seeing my drawings come to life in 3-D was so much fun and such a great collaborative experience. I knew I wanted my designs to be almost animated, full of life and able to highlight each character's personality traits, while still keeping the designs playful and confident. I think everyone who worked on this project nailed it, and I can't wait for fans to see them in person.”

Ledbetter and Zullo’s DC Artists Alley figures will follow the 2018 designer vinyls illustrated by Chris Uminga, HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque and Sho Murase. Fans attending San Diego Comic-Con can pick up the convention exclusive of Uminga’s DC Artists Alley Batman figure in three different variant editions at the Entertainment Earth Booth #2343 or pre-order the figures online here.

On tap for 2019, DC Collectibles will release a new Bat-Family Multi-Part Statue featuring Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing and Red Hood. The statue set is designed by the award-winning DC Collectibles design team and includes the same versatile bases as the New Teen Titans Multi-Part Statue set that debuts in August 2018. Fans can display one or a few of their favorite Bat-Family characters independently, or for those wanting to own the whole set, the bases fit perfectly together to create one cohesive image. Batman is the first character to hit shelves in March 2019 and the remaining characters will be released throughout the year.

Additional 2019 releases include a Batman: Black & White Batman statue based on the acclaimed BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT artwork by Sean Murphy, new DC Essentials action figures and new character additions to the DC Bombshells and DC Cover Girls statue lines.

As a huge BTAS fan, first I have to say a few words about the Batcycle. Man, I've been asking for this for a long time. I have commented on Jay's videos more than once about it and it's finally coming. I couldn't be happier. It's all I could have possibly asked and more. 

I just wanted the bike and they went ahead and redesigned the figure so it could ride it and look good on it. Unfortunately I don't have space for the Batcave and the Batwing, but this will look so cool next to my Batmobile.  I hope that the neck peg is compatible so I can use my expressions pack heads and have some fun with it. Looking at the pictures I know I want it now! Has a freaking wired cape! 

One question comes to mind now: Will they go ahead and make a Batcycle wirh a new Robin figure? I really hope so. Because you know, they HAVE to do it now. I

About the other figures, Scarecrow and Two-Face were long long requested and never made, but Jim Fletcher hinted that they would soon make them and now finally here they are. Gray Ghost is a surprise and a very nice one! Another homage for our beloved Adam West. They say at DC Collectibles that they make the things for us and something we have the idea that they don't care, but this proves that they're listening. This and the Batcycle. H.A.R.DA.C. was another surprise, an odd one, at least for me, but I will not complain! Keep making them

The next thing that I want to see is news if they will continue the expressions pack line with some older figures, like Catwoman and Robin. I'm still trying to get the Joker.

On a side note, I am still very upset that the JLA figures won't be available at retail. This is the other side of DC Collectibles that makes me very disappointed.
