In addition to their awesome lines for BTAS and DC Comics Icons, DC Collectibles is also continuing to support Warner Bros. TV shows and video games. DCC showed off waves of figures for The Flash, Arrow, and the newest Batman video game, Arkham Knight, which is due out in July this year.
While Constantine was represented in other parts of the showroom, the NBC series has not gotten any love yet. And it may not be forthcoming anytime soon, with NBC not extending the first season beyond the original order of 13 episodes, and the decision for a second season or cancellation still in limbo.
I should reserve judgment until after the various Mattel panels (including Mattypalooza and the DC partnership ones), but my initial impression is that it will be another thin year for collector-oriented DC product. The exception, of course, is the Batman classic TV series line – but I can’t see that being a line with strong longevity.
