DC Collectibles announce new Batman Black & White statues coming to Walmart stores

DC Comics’ partnership with Walmart stores has seen some great content released in a relatively short period of time. For around the cost of a normal comic, their 100 Page Giants give a brand new story from some of the industry’s hottest talent, plus several more “back issues” worth of related material. Not a bad deal by any stretch, and with holiday themed specials and even more character spotlights, that’s a lot of comics for fans new and old alike.

DC have just announced that in addition to their Walmart 100 Page Giants, they will also be offering high-quality, affordable Batman Black & White statues through the DC Collectibles line. They’re fantastic looking figures based on the styles of legendary artists from all across Batman’s history (Dick Sprang!  Carmine Infantino!), and at $5 a pop they’re affordable for any and all DC fans. Check out the details below.

Per DC:


Fan-Favorite BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE Statue Line Now Available in New 4″ Scale

First Wave Includes Figures Designed by Acclaimed Artists Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke, Jason Fabok, Patrick Gleason, Frank Quitely and Dick Sprang

DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles, is bringing its acclaimed BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE statue line to Walmart stores as 4″ mini-figures. The new figures are direct transformations of the company’s acclaimed 9″-scale figures and feature designs from many world-renowned artists including Jim Lee, Bruce Timm, Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke and many more.

“BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE is DC Collectibles’ longest-running statue line and continues to be one of our best-sellers,” said Jim Fletcher, executive creative director at DC Collectibles. “The line allows us to work with a wide array of talented artists from different industries, and we’re really excited to revisit our favorite designs in this all-new 4″ scale!”

Walmart’s exclusive DC Collectibles program also offers something unique for fans: the thrill of chance. Fans purchasing these BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE figures at Walmart will find each in an exclusive, individual blind bag next to DC’s Comic Giants.
