SDCC 2012: Awesome Toy Picks: DC Collectibles Showcase

Check out what you can expect in the coming months from DC Collectibles.

San Diego Comic-Con isn't just about comics. There are always a ton of toys and collectibles that are shown for the first time. We were actually invited to a private showing of some top secret collectibles that DC will release later. We weren't allowed to take photos of those but we were allowed to talk about them.

DC Collectibles made prototypes of Green Arrow and Pandora for their Justice League line. They are also making smaller scale Spy Vs. Spy figures that you can actually play with. We saw the spies in their corresponding colored tanks. If you've seen the DC Universe shorts, you'll be pleased to see a certain interpretation of Batman coming.

As for what we were allowed to see, check out the Darkseid for the Justice League line. He was big in the comics and he's going to be big in the toy line. The big question is what will the price be?

The regular figures retail for $20. They're solid too. How much would you pay for him?

== TEASER ==

There's also plenty of statues.

The DC booth was remodeled this year. They had a different design to their display cases. Check out what they had for everyone to see.

Love the Dark Knight Returns one.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Dark Knight Returns Superman and Batman for me, please...

Edited by Barubal10

Is the New 52 JL going to be released as a DCU Classics wave? Maybe Darkseid will be included via C&C pieces if so.

That Dark Knight Returns one is just awesome.

Once again I am reminded how impractical Starfire's costume is.

Edited by TheWitchingHour

I need a life size version of Starfire for ...... uh ..... my foyer?

That's right, my foyer.

lol Tell me about it. How does that thing stay on in battle?

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

Will Darksied be one of those add them together part by part toys? Will he end up that big in the final?

Some pretty cool stuff. I'd love to see a New 52 Batman in Greg Capullo style.

Posted by SupBatz

The Poison Ivy statue and the Batgirl busts looked particularly awesome. But everything looked so great.

Though the Starfire bust is just...awkward.

If you're a dude and you own that Starfire bust, there's a solid chance you're 39 and still live with your parents.

Posted by CommanderZx2

Oh my what have they done to the cover girls statue line... The Adam Hughes designed statues are so much better than the new ones.

Why is Grifter going to shoot Supergirl?

@ArtisticNeedham: looks like it

Posted by longbowhunter

I'd like to have the Dr. Manhattan statue for my cabinet. The Dark Knight Returns and Shazam ones are killer too.

Posted by hpwaz

@ArtisticNeedham It's going to be that big, but it's not a snap-together figure. DC Collectibles is selling it in one piece as a deluxe figure for around $80

Posted by bones360uk

really want the kelley jones statue

Posted by MrGutts

@Miss_Garrick: Well it's not like she will even feel it.

Edited by JayMar89

supes, marvel and ww bust for me maybe cyborg

Posted by Miss_Garrick

@MrGutts: True, but it seems needlessly mean.

Yes, I agree. A lot of the others were disappointing, didnt really look enough like the characters.

Love the Batgirl and Wonder Woman Busts

In the first Image I thought Darksied was the Anti-Monitor

*Note to self: Get eyes checked*

Posted by RoTheKid

These all look really nice! :)

Posted by MrMazz

That Dark Knight Returns statue is pretty sick I wants it

Posted by krazyman27

Will Starfire cost more because that bust is so much bigger than the other ones?

Posted by Cavemold

Give me cyborg and TDK please momma!

Posted by Chronus
  • The Darkseid, Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern figurines
  • The Shazam bust
  • The Doctor Manhattan Statue

Those would be the only collectibles I would bother buying judging from the photos.

Posted by spidergirl2012

I'd make out with that bane statue.


Posted by Bestostero

I don't understand why they are releasing the JLU figures in such an odd schedule...but I guess its better than dropping 100+ for the whole set on day one...

Posted by MercWithaMouth2385

WOW Starfire! Wow!

Posted by chaos-soul

starfire looks like laura craft from endgame. her cloths scream early topcow

Posted by RedQueen

I simply need the Watchmen line.....

Posted by DangerDrVenture

Dcc/dcd has never offered build a figures. that was Mattel and they aren't doing that anymore. Darkseid is a $90 deluxe figure coming late November. The league toys are a charity set for about $100 coming the same time as Darkseid. They're releasing them bimonthly individually at this time for about $22 each. Only Batman is available right now.

Posted by jobiwankenobi

I can't help but feel like the figures I have from when I was a kid were so much better.

I just saw Blue Beetle bust..... ME WAAAAAAAAAAANT


Did they say anything about the hawkman that was shown at toy fair? I expected to see him again. Any news about teen titans / young justice?

Posted by Ganthetsward20

I think the Cyborg and Starfire are each very neat!

Um ... does the same apply if you're a chick and you buy the Dr Manhattan statue or is there some sort of double-standard? (Just asking)

Posted by redo7

Darksied, TDKR, Justice League figures (not too crazy about the Cyborg one). Watchmen also looks great,..

Posted by fanged_wolf

*opens wallet n pulls out check book, gives DC a blank check* write down a number n i'll pay it 4 darkseid

Edited by pirrobo
