DC Collectibles, those professional purveyors of playthings and presentation pieces, have announced some new releases for 2018. Unsurprisingly, there’s some great stuff coming.
In their press release, DC revealed plans for a Jae Lee-inspired Harley Quinn piece, some pretty cute “Artist Alley” vinyl figures, and a friggin’ rad Metal statue. Two battle-axes, guys. Two.
The main focus, though, is on a line of action figures based on the “Black & White” line, and they look pretty great. With figures based of designs from Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, and Batman’s first appearance in Detective Comics #27, hopefully this is just the beginning of some great creator representation. Give me a Jim Aparo and a Norm Breyfogle figure and I’ll be set.
From the release:
DC COLLECTIBLES’ ‘BATMAN BLACK & WHITE’ STATUES WILL BUST A MOVE IN JUNE 2018
AS POSEABLE 6.75’’ ACTION FIGURES
New Action Figure Line Features Iconic Batman Designs from Award-Winning Artists Jim Lee, Greg Capullo and More
Exciting Summer Lineup Includes ‘DC Artists Alley’ Variants, ‘Dark Nights: Metal’ Statue and Life-Size Joker Cane
DC Collectibles is gearing up for a fun-filled June 2018 stocked with enough new statues, action figures and collectibles to please both DC’s most dedicated fans and those just starting out with their collections. Headlining DC Collectibles’ June releases is an all-new Batman Black & White action figure line based on the company’s bestselling statue line of the same name. The moveable 6.75’’ action figures will debut alongside the first wave of DC Artists Alley designer vinyls that will now feature three new black and white variants. DC Collectibles will also release a stunning 12’’ statue based on the critically acclaimed DARK NIGHTS: METAL comic book series and new additions to its Harley Quinn: Red, White & Black and DC Gallery lines.
After 75+ statues and counting, DC Collectibles is transforming its longest running and most popular line of Batman Black and White statues into highly detailed, articulated 6.75’’ action figures. The first wave debuts in June 2018 and stars Jim Lee’s Batman from BATMAN: HUSH, Greg Capullo’s Batman from BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY and Batman from the Super Hero’s first appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #27.
DC Collectibles will also add three black and white variants to its first wave of DC Artists Alley designer vinyls that features the popular art style of Chris Uminga. Announced earlier this year, the upcoming DC Artists Alley line celebrates offbeat artists and allows them to put their unique spin on DC’s most popular characters. The first wave of figures, including the newly announced variants, showcase Uminga’s take on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
DC Collectibles is also bringing to life the gruesome, axe-wielding Batman from Greg Capullo’s DARK NIGHTS METAL #1 variant cover as a 12’’ DC Designer Series statue. This original take on Batman will be joined by a new Harley Quinn: Red, White and Black statue by Jae Lee and a life-size replica of The Joker cane. The cane features an intricately designed Joker-themed handle and is an accessory sure to enhance your swagger.
