BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Ahead of Saturday’s kickoff of Toy Fair 2015, DC Collectibles has unveiled a lineup that includes the debut of the DC Comics Icons action-figure line, based on the work of artist Ivan Reis, and the first 6-inch-scale Batmobile inspired by Batman: The Animated Series.
Accompanying the Batmobile is the fifth wave of figures from Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures — Nightwing, Bane, Mad Hatter and Scarecrow — plus a two-pack from Mask of the Phantasm (MTV News has the full details on the figures). The Batmobile features sliding door access and room for two 6-inch figures.
The DC Comics Icons line begins with Deadman, Green Arrow, Batman and Mister Miracle, with Wave 2 featuring The Flash, Black Adam, Blue Beetle, Lex Luthor and a Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) deluxe figure. Wave 3 includes Superman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn and Atomica.
“Being part of this project is a great honor,” Reis said at a statement. “Knowing the ‘Icons’ action figures will be based on my art adds a new level of inspiration to my work. I was also thrilled to learn this series will feature many classic versions of the characters that were part of my childhood.”
DC Collectibles will also be showcasing Felicity, Diggle and Arsenal action figures from Arrow, and Captain Cold from The Flash, as well as prop replicas of the Reverse-Flash ring from The Flash and Doctor Fate’s helmet from Constantine. For a full rundown, visit the DC Comics website.
Toy Fair 2015 is Feb. 14-17 in New York City.
