I’m not nearly as good at writing about action figures as Devin is, but here are a few of the figures and statues shown at this year’s Toy Fair in New York. They range from comics-based to television and the cinematic universe, and all of these photos come from The Toyark, The Fwoosh, and Toy News International. You can see far more photos and information for DC figures and other properties at those sites.
DC Collectibles via USAToday announced a number of interesting upcoming Flash products that are guaranteed to knock the socks off of older and newer Flash fans alike.
First up, we have a brand new DC Collectibles 6″ action figure line called DC Icons. Not only will the series be featuring characters and designs from the New 52 but they will also be mining the classics; In the second wave, due out in Late 2015/Early 2016 we can expect to find Barry Allen circa the Crisis on Infinite Earths and featuring a brand new Cosmic Treadmill!
DC Collectibles has given us a sneak peek at the action figures and statues to be showcased at San Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks, and one of them is a figure of Barry Allen from the upcoming Flash TV series. So far it looks nicely poseable and is a great likeness of actor Grant Gustin in the Flash suit, which bodes well.
There are no other details as of yet, but you can see the rest of the imminent figures at DC’s blog, and some of them look really nice. Presumably we’ll learn more about the figures once SDCC is underway. And if you’ll be attending SDCC, the blog post has information about when and where the collectibles panels will be held.
What do you think of the figure so far? Is anyone hoping for more figures based on the TV series?
So even though the New 52 Heroes vs. Villains 7-Pack actually isn’t scheduled for release until Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 thanks to some enterprising individuals I got the set in my hands a few days early. Check out my review and bunch of pics below.
