NYCC 2012: Awesome Toy Picks: DC Collectibles

Posted by G-Man (40746 posts) - - Show Bio

Each week we take a close look at comic book collectibles to see how they rate outside of the packaging. As we're knee deep in the madness of New York Comic Con, there wasn't really a chance to actually take a close look at an individual item. What we were able to do was take a look at some of the upcoming products DC Collectibles will be selling. In other words, start saving your money.

There's been a lot of news dealing with Superman lately. Scott Lobdell's first issue of SUPERMAN went on sale last month. Andy Diggle and Tony Daniel will be taking over ACTION COMICS and Scott Snyder and Jim Lee will be launching a new Superman series in 2013.

Check out the other Superman statues:

As you wait for the return of SANDMAN, you'll soon have a chance to get the Dream and Death bookends if you missed them the first time around.

Last week marked the first episode of Arrow on the CW. Check out this Green Arrow figurine with interchangeable head.

You can never have too many Batman-related toys, right?

There's another Death statue coming along with the Ame-Comi Girls statues that you may have seen before.

If you've been digging the JUSTICE LEAGUE figures, there's a 'We Can Be Heroes' boxset coming. And here's another look at the Green Arrow figure.

Here's a look at more Batman Black and White statues.

As if that wasn't enough, there are plenty more statues and busts coming soon.

What about Batman...on a horse?

And if you've watched DC Nation on Saturday mornings, you're likely to be familiar with the Aardman Batman shorts. This was a NYCC exclusive but definitely needs a closer look.

That's it for this week's look at toys. Next week we'll be back to our normal schedule. That means we'll be opening up another figure and taking a close look at it.

Holiday Catwoman.

The Ame Comi Mary Marvel is pretty cute, but the boob window is a bit overboard. Works for Power Girl, but I also hated that design for Invisible Woman.

Something about the Talia design in ARKHAM CITY was kind of unimpressive. Especially when you compare it to Catwoman, Ivy, and Harley. They had so much more personality.

Holy Doritos all these are awesome! Crunchtastic!

@Xanni15: Ah, thanks for clearing that up.

Really hate the new harley outfit outside of the game.

#11 Posted by BoyWander (332 posts) - - Show Bio

- n - I really don't like the Aardman Batman shorts… they aren't funny… or interesting to watch… they're just strange… And while we're on the subject of DC Nation, I'm getting sick of Cartoon Network pulling DC Nation off the air whenever they freaking please. That's not how you run a television block. You let us watch it at the scheduled times. I got up at 6 in the morning so I wouldn't miss it and guess what I woke up to… Dragons: Riders of Berk. Excuse my rage but… C'mon Young Justice hasn't been back for a month and it's already back on Hiatus.

The Ame Comi Wonder Woman looks like Eddy Izzard with Rob Liefeld feet.

Damn it, after all these years we finally get a Booster Gold bust and its the new 52 suit. Those Sandman and Death bookends have me drooling on my keyboard though. I've got a couple of the Batman B/W statues already. Just got this a few weeks ago.

Amazing stuff all around (except for that TDKR Superman statue, is he dancing ballet?).

#23 Posted by Tyrannotaur (296 posts) - - Show Bio

So I went to NYCC with a friend who isn't into comics besides the Batman Nolan movies, The Avengers movie, and a few other misc things like Arkham Asylum. He has a stigma for whatever reason to Superman. So we get to this display and I'm like "Oh cool DC stuff" and he replies "I don't like Superman". So I shoot back "Well there's Batman on a horse." Ba dum chi!

Yeeaahhh was funnier at the time..

Anyway I want that Harley. Especially if I can't get the New 52 Harley statue I want.

@FoxxFireArt: As a warm blooded male whom enjoys the female form and creative nods to previous incarnations of said breast window - I disagree. In fact, I would go so far as to advocate it being adopted as part of her usual attire.

#25 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6958 posts) - - Show Bio

Gosh I want every single one of these if I could afford it, especially the Ame Comi Girls line with Supergirl, Brainiac, Mary Marvel and the others. Those are simply amazing!

#26 Posted by longbowhunter (8970 posts) - - Show Bio

I know Swamp Thing and Animal Man have been some of the best received titles out of the whole new 52. So why no action figures or statues?

#27 Posted by red_titan (162 posts) - - Show Bio

Blue beetle toy/thing, oh hell to the yeah.

#28 Posted by Chael_P_Sonnen (34 posts) - - Show Bio

The bane and Blue Beetle are sick

In response to judasnixon: Actually, that's not Ame-Comi Wonder Woman. That's Bombshell Wonder Woman, alongside with Bombshell Supergirl. This is a new collectible figure line called DC Bombshells, literally. Their designs are somewhat based off of the western era and Adam Hughes' DC's Covergirls, I think.

Great toys and statues! Really cool! :)

#31 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (921 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do,
