Awesome Toy Picks: DC Collectibles at C2E2

DC Collectibles has a new name and quite a few new products.

Each week we take a look at some of the coolest collectibles around. Normally we give a more hands on look at the items but since we're at C2E2 this weekend, we thought we should share the first look at several new items DC had on display. Last Friday, DC announced that DC Direct has now become DC Collectibles. You saw what they had on display when we posted about WonderCon. Check out the new items they've added.

Everyone likes Batman, right? DC had some more of the BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE statues on display. Check out the one inspired by Sam Kieth.

There was also ones inspired by Darwyn Cooke, Jock and Brian Bolland.

== TEASER ==

Of course there's more Batman. Those were just statues. There's plenty of Batman figures coming in the Arkham City Series 2 line.

DC has some patina statues coming out. There's one for Batman and Superman coming soon.

At WonderCon they had a lot of the Justice League figures on display. More were seen at C2E2 including Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash and a Parademon.

Remember Flashpoint? There's a box set coming out with Flash, Wonder Woman, Emperor Aquaman and Thomas Wayne Batman. What makes it even cooler is it comes with an exclusive $500 Wayne Casino chip!!

Do you like busts? Doesn't everyone? Check out the latest busts DC is offering. Here's Grifter, Sinestro, Cyborg and Batgirl.

If you've been enjoying the Green Lantern Animated Series, you'll be able to get some statues inspired by the show.

Are you excited about BEFORE WATCHMEN prequels? Check out this Dr. Manhattan statue.

Did you hear about the Ame-Comi Girls digital series coming from DC Comics? If you haven't, you might want to look into it after checking these images out.

And finally, more of the Mad Magazine, "Just-Us" League of Stupid Heroes figures were revealed.

That's it for this week. Be sure to look for the next installment with a more hands on look.

Ame-Comi?... Is that like DC's version of Marvel's Mangaverse? If it is, my respect for DC drops significantly. I both love Manga and Comics, but when you make an american version of anything manga-styled it's usually very stereotypical and down right offensive. As I'm seeing here, my statement remains true.

Also I really hate MAD... I don't understand the appeal of ugly...

Never been a fan of MAD myself and these won't change my mind. I do like the Flashpoint boxset, though. Might consider getting that.

The line is actually doing quite well and it's doing just what you would hope it to do. It's drawing fans of manga into the comic book fold. Not to mention they are doing a great job with keeping with the style of the genre they are paying homage to. If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine. But I guarantee you that many a people are consuming that which you aren't and loving every drop.

Should rename Cyborg to Captain Clunk with that armor.

The coolest one. Her costume feels pretty Underground, to me.

Posted by longbowhunter

I've been waiting for the perfect Batman Black & White statue to compliment my B&W Jim Lee Joker, I think I found it when I saw the Jock statue. MUST HAVE!!! Really like the Dr. Manhattan statue as well.

Posted by Kal'smahboi

Anybody else really like the Superman/Batman patina statues?

Posted by termiteone4ever

Cyborg looks awesome!

Superman looks amazing.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

Batgirl bust was neat and I liked the flashpoint figures.

Posted by ZZoMBiE13

Sam Keith has been my favorite comic artist for years. Love the figure of his Batman art. Also really dig the anime Harley Quinn. The outfit is pretty neat. That's just a great collection of stuff all around, not a bad figure in the bunch.

I LOVE the Saint Walker statue! He's so cute and so awesome.

What is batman holding?!? It looks like it could be a GUN of some sort!!

Posted by FoxxFireArt

I'm glad they went with the brief wearing version of D Manhattan. lol.Still no interest in that prequel project, But I'm also not big on prequels in general. Feels less like they want to tell stories and more that they want to profit off the Watchmen name.

Those Ame-Comi Girls figures look pretty cool.

Posted by BatClaw89

Kieth and Moore hope you 2 die soon. That was my Easter wish. LOL

He made an electromagnetic pulse gun thing in the game. Completely non-lethal. No worries.
Posted by DirkPower
@BatClaw89: wow, don't be such a scumbag. 
Anyways Some of these are awesome! I think I might invest in the Jock black and white statue. 
Anyone else feel that the detective mode Arkham City Batman is a bit... off? His face changed proportion wise, and his hands are tiny..
Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Man these are great, but that Ame-Comi one...is that New 52 Brainiac or something? Seriously...looks amazing.

Posted by Red Rum

Right before the Mad Magazine figures... is that supposed to be the gender-bent Black Flash?

Posted by Miss_Garrick

@Kal'smahboi: phew.

Posted by Sammo21

Man...a lot of that earlier stuff was down right AWFUL. Sculpts on the New 52 figures look great though.

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

Nope for Batman, but the Figures are nice, wouldn't mind those Arkham figures ^_^

Ame-Comi Girls look So AWEsome !

thanks Mad.....for showing up...and ..

Overall nice pics, maybe I can snag some.

Posted by Emperor Gonzo Noir

DC can do Watchmen comics toys now?

Posted by CATPANEXE

This is the only thing that exists right now. ^______________________________________________________________________________^

Posted by StarKiller809

I lot of cool ones. If I had an extra hundred dollar bill, I would go crazy. However, there is nothing there that just says, I HAVE TO HAVE IT!

Disappointed by the lack of Wonder Woman and Batwoman goodies.

Posted by Eyz

Nice! Always loved these Black & White figures^^

Side note: AmeComi Brainiac? Really??? :/

Posted by Watcherg6

I have question, Where would i talk about TMNT Toys?

Posted by Queso6p4

@InnerVenom123: Haha! I agree. I thought he looked more like a meth addict in Arkham City. What a shame.

A lot of these look pretty sweet.

The only manga fans that Ame-Comi is drawing are the echi fans. This is just a cheap, shallow ploy at pulling in manga fans. To be honest, most manga fans just enjoy a good, steady adventure with cool arcs and a set of entertaining characters from one author or an single writer/artist team. Manga is more diverse than American comics, with varying art styles and a huge range in stories. All Ame-Comi seems to be doing is taking characters and giving them wider eyes, boob jobs and skimpy clothes.

Being a fan of Ecchi does not mean that one can't be a fans of other genera as well

It is. Check out how many genres it has, and how each series within that genre differs from each other. Also, every artist has their own unique way of drawing. Some mangaka try to mimic the styles of other creators, but the result is never perfect or exact.
