  1. DC Collectibles continues its new line of highly articulated 7” DC Essentials comic based action figures with a second wave of figures that include Superman, Aquaman, Black Manta and Brainiac. The figures incorporate the same style of window-box packaging as the first wave. Each box is color coded and numbered to match the included figure. Superman, number 5 in the series, has a blue box. Brainiac is number 6 with a green box; Aquaman is number 7 with a orange box; and Black Manta is number 8 with a black box. The back of the packaging features another image of the figure, a bio for the DC Essentials line and a look at the other figures in the wave. It also tells us the figures were sculpted by Paul Harding. Two of the four figures in this wave, Aquaman and Black Manta feature accessories while the other two do not. Aquaman comes with a trident made of gold plastic, and Black Manta comes with two swords and a bladed weapon made from a metallic silver plastic. Aquaman’s trident is shorter than the figure, and Black Manta’s weapons fit in the non-removable backpack included with the figure. For the figures themselves, they all use the same basic muscular body as the figures in the first wave with some minor differences. Brainiac and Black Manta have the same type of boots while Superman’s are unique and Aquaman isn’t wearing any. Black Manta has a metallic silver wrist gauntlet sculpted on the right wrist and two rubber-like hoses attached from the helmet which runs to the backpack. While the paint applications on these figures are pretty basic, I like the glossy black used on Manta along with the red on the eyes and neck. The helmet is a good size with some nice sculpting detail on it with line work. Black Manta has two grip hands. Aquaman has chainmail sculpted on his shirt along with a metallic gold belt with an ‘A’ on it. I also like the metallic orange used on the shirt and the green on the pants with gloves matching nicely. The gloves are sculpted so the backs stick out at the top in a point, and he also has the fins sculpted on the back of his lower legs. He has a metallic gold color that is sculpted not just painted. The head sculpt on this figure is pretty solid overall but probably my least favorite of the four figures in the wave. Aquaman has a closed fist for the right hand and a grip for the left. Brainiac has nice sculpting detail on the head with pinkish circles on the top of his head. Except for the boots, all other aspects of the outfit are painted on and the figure features two closed fists. Superman has the best head sculpt of the four figures and one of the best I have seen on a Superman figure in some time. He has black hair with the iconic curl. The figure features the outfit from Action Comics #1000 with the red trunks. The one minor error on the figure is that they forgot to paint the belt loops red. Also, I don’t like the darker red used on the ankle joints which is noticeably different from the glossy red used on the rest of the boots. The cape on Superman which is made of a rubber-like material is a good length and hangs well on the figure. Superman has a closed fist for the right hand and an open hand for the left. Articulation is solid on all four figures including thigh swivels, double-jointed knees and elbows. I especially like how far back you can get Superman’s head back for flight poses. Black Manta has the least head movement due to the large helmet. All four figures are roughly the same height although Black Manta might be a bit taller due to the helmet. The figures are not in scale with other 6” lines like DC Icons, Marvel Legends and DC Multiverse but do match up nicely with all the older DC-based figures that DC Collectibles made before they did DC Icons. At the end of the day, while the figures aren’t perfect, I am enjoying them overall and think if you want a highly articulated DC Comic based line these are worth checking out. Look for the second wave to start hitting comic and specialty shops this week. You can pre-order these figure now from Megalopolis Toys. These figures were provided by DC Collectibles free of charge for purposes of review.
  2. Hey everyone. I had a slew of photos that I was planning on selecting from to post with this video for the people who didn't want to sit though it but I had deleted them off of the hard drive before posting this. The video should show everything you need to see so you can make a good educated decision on whether or not you want to pick this 2-pack up for your self.
  3. DC Collectibles continues its new DC Essentials line with Superman who is featured in the most recent costume the debuted in Action Comics #1000, the blue tights with red trunks, boots and cape. This costume also features the line work around the wrists on the sleeves as seen with the New 52 costume. The figure stands 7” tall which is a larger scale than their previous Icons line as well as other 6” Lines like Marvel Legends and DC Multiverse figures. However, these new figures do match up well with older DC Collectibles New 52 figures and even the few DC figures NECA has done. This particular figure does not have any additional accessories, a key component for this Essentials line. DC Collectibles says this decision helps keep prices down to range between $22 and $25. Something cool like the eye-heat beam effects seen with DC Collectibles Icons Death Of Superman figure would have been cool, but I understand why they are limiting accessories. This Superman has a fairly solid paint job with only two complaints. The loops on Superman's belt match the remainder of the yellow belt instead of the red portrayed in the comics. I also don’t like how visible the difference between the shade of red used on the ankle joints and the glossy red paint used on the feet and upper portion of the boots is. It almost looks like Superman is wearing socks or something. The head sculpt on the figure is very solid in my opinion. It’s actually one of the best looking head sculpts I’ve seen on a Superman figure. The hair is solid black and features the iconic hair curl. The skin tone, eyebrows and eyes have solid paint jobs, and the expression is very Superman like. The S symbol on his chest is painted and not sculpted, but it looks solid. The figure has a closed fist for the right hand and an open hand for the left. The arm length is perhaps a little too long but honestly even in a static pose it doesn’t bother me too much, and the arms work pretty well for things like flight poses. The red cape is made of that typical rubber-type material and is red on both sides. This incarnation of Superman does not feature the S symbol on it. The cape is a good length, and I think it hangs on the figure fairly well. Articulation on the figure is solid as we’ve seen with previous Essential figures. What I really like is you can get the head back thanks to a neck hinge joint for flight poses. This is something that often seems to be missing from Superman figures. You do get that gap at the crotch section which I know annoys some folks, but doesn’t bother me much. I would say that maybe DC Collectibles should consider going back to the same crotch design they were using on the more recent DC Icons figures. I think you have a good range of motion with those without the big gaps. The joints overall on this figure seem pretty tight, but the ankles are a little rubbery causing the figure to wobble a bit when trying to stand which can be annoying. Despite some complaints, I am actually really enjoying this figure and the different kind of flight poses I can achieve. That and the very solid looking head sculpt make this a great addition to anyone’s Superman figure collection. Look for this figure to hit comic and specialty shops later this month. You can pre-order it now at Megalopolis.Toys and BigBadToyStore.com. Thanks to DC Collectibles for sending this figure free of charge for purposes of review. Check out more images for this figure below in our GALLERY! as well as a Toy Talk video on it.
  4. 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.
