This news makes me insanely happy. Among DC’s new action figures are the Batman: The Animated Series version of Catwoman (still my favorite version of the the character’s costume). Although I have the 3.5in. figure from the original series, its less-than-ideal mold limits how you can pose the figure without it toppling over. Also announced are figures from the revamped New Batman Adventures (the final season of BTAS that featured different designs for several of the characters) including Batman, Mr. Freeze, and Two-Face. You can find the full press release, including news on all the various other toys and figures DC the company plans to release this year, inside.
Properties Set to Debut in 2014
DC Collectibles, the exclusive line of toy and collector items from DC Entertainment, announced today an exciting 2014 product line-up just in time for New York Toy Fair. DC Collectibles will offer a wide range of new action figures and collector’s items based on DC Comics’ iconic characters and other properties including the highly-anticipated Son of Batman direct-to-video film and Infinite Crisis, the upcoming video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Turbine. And for the first time ever, new 6” scale action figure lines based on designs from both Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures will be released later this year.
“DC Collectibles has an amazing 2014 line-up in store for fans and collectors and we’re psyched to be showcasing our new action figures, statues and more at New York Toy Fair,” said Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. “The new slate shows off the team’s commitment to bringing innovative ideas and the highest quality toys and collector’s items to fans worldwide, and as a fan myself I’m particularly excited about the new Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures lines.”
Additional new product categories scheduled for 2014 include a “(Bat)man cave” line of high-end lifestyle products, an all new Wood figure line, and porcelain dolls based on a beloved character from Vertigo’s THE SANDMAN series.
Following up with some of their most popular lines comes a second wave of action figures based on art from Greg Capullo, and new additions to both the DC Comics Bombshells and DC Cover Girls statue series.
