Toy Fair 2015: DC Collectibles DC Comics Icons Will Make You Forget DC Universe Classics

Toy Fair 2015 DC Collectibles DC Comics Icons (1 of 15)

As I was taking pics of DC Collectibles newest line, the super-articulated DC Comics Icons, I overheard one of the DC Collectibles reps describe the line. “Yes, these are 6-inch scaled figures, so we are competing with Mattel!” News flash, DCC rep: DC Universe Classics is already history!

But even if they weren’t I’d wager that this line would give DCUC a run for its money. Even at the $24.99 price tag, the line embraces DC Collectibles aesthetics, with remarkable head and body sculpts – but they also add in the articulation scheme that DCC first tried out on their 3.75-inch figures. This makes for a pretty damn compelling combination.

The first three waves feature a wide range of characters in their most iconic (I’m glad they are taking the name seriously) looks. Each figure also will come with accessories. For example, the wave 3 Atomica will also come with mini-figures of Ryan Choi and Ray Palmer. Wave 1 starts hitting in October this year, and the three waves bring us through 2016.

  1. Still need to know how the hips/knees are going to work… but yeah, already making me glad I skipped most of DCUC

  2. I’d like to have seen more “classic” versions but they look great, if they catch on they could be a realistic rival to Marvel Legends.

  3. excellent a slap in the face to mattel, where all the bodies of the DCUC characters were the same, only changed the heads

    Now who dares to take the fight and MOTUC matty collector? need Thundercats
