DC Collectibles Announces Four Products via Instagram, Including Man-Bat from Batman: The Animated Series

With yesterday’s reveal of most of Wave Two of Batman: The Animated Series 6-inch figures, DC Collectibles promised the fourth figure from the wave today. They’ve done us a few better, revealing four upcoming collectibles via Instagram videos. As such, the resolution of the screen grabs is not that great, but there will be more to come as these items get official solicitations. Click through for the videos on DC Comics’  Instagram feed.

Toy Fair 2014: Batman: The Animated Series Headlines New Reveals for DC Collectibles

The big show hasn’t officially started, but the toy companies are already ahead of the game. With a reveal in USA Today and an item in the full line-up of their Toy Fair press release, DC Collectibles announced they would be turning to one of the most beloved properties in the DC animated universe for a set of new toy lines. Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures will be the design source for 6-inch figures. While these will be in an animated style, it looks like DCC will be incorporating more than the 5 points of articulation you might expect.

Limited runs of animated figures are not unprecedented (DCC produced figures for 2007’s Superman / Doomsday animated movie), but with 6 seasons of shows and numerous animated movies, the Timm-verse could provide as deep a character set as DCC’s foray into Blackest Night, for example.

The rest of the Toy Fair line-up stays closer to DC Collectibles’ wheelhouse. There’s more New 52 and Designer Series (this time Greg Capullo) on the way, as well as lines tied to popular DC comic book events, like Infinite Crisis and Son of Batman.

Play Imaginative New 52 Super Alloy Superman by Jedd

Singaporean toy company Play Imaginative threw their hat into the sixth scale ring with the release of the Super Alloy Batman figure in 2012, designed by Jim Lee and not quite New 52. Play Imaginative has continued the Super Alloy range, inspired by Japanese die-cast metal “Chogokin” toys. Iron Man seemed a natural fit and they’ve produced multiple Iron Man “marks” across three scales. DC fans (such as myself) can rejoice in the fact that Play Imaginative is also representin’ for the House of El.

This is a guest review by Jedd Jong. In the past, Jedd has provided great coverage of the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention for AFP.

Weekend Toy Run: DC Collectibles New 52 Heroes vs. Villains 7-Pack for $70 at Entertainment Earth – Today Only

DC Comics The New 52 Super Heroes vs. Super Villains Action Figure 7-Pack

Can you believe Entertainment Earth is *still* running daily deals for the holidays? They started this so long ago that I must have refreshed that page at least a hundred times. Today’s deal is for the DC Collectibles Super Heroes vs. Super Villains 7-pack. At $70 (that’s 30% off the regular price) it’s the best deal you’ll get on figures that are now normally priced at $20 and up. That is, if you don’t already have a bunch of them, or do just want some shiny repaints.

You need just $5 more to trigger the free shipping for $75 deal, which, admittedly, is tougher than it seems. I found a chuckle-inducing G.I. Joe Retaliation Snake Eyes Ninjac-Cucks Nunchucks for $12.99. Or you could go for a slightly more practical LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Flashlight for $9.99. Happy shopping!
