Kotobukiya’s harkening back to one of the most beloved versions of the Caped Crusader with the latest installment in its ArtFX+ line of statues — a “Batman: The Animated Series” 1/10-scale figurine.
Standing 7.5 inches tall, Kotobukiya’s “Batman: The Animated Series” statue comes with loads of customizable accessories, including three sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and weak) and three interchangeable facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), in addition to three versions of Batman’s right hand that include a thumbs up, a batarang and a grappling gun.
The designers at Valentino must have an appreciation for superheroes, or at least their aesthetic. After first introducing a capsule collection inspired by Wonder Woman, the Italian fashion house has partnered with DC Comics and Marvel for a trio of sneakers based on Batman, Superman and Spider-Man.
The Dark Knight’s utility belt has held everything from a grapnel gun to a sonic devastator to kryptonite, but what’s to be done with larger items, like a laptop or books? That’s where this Batman backpack comes in.
The Caped Crusader would undoubtedly dub it the “Batpack,” but no matter what you want to call it, it’s pretty cool. Black and gray (naturally), the 18-inch by 14-inch by 8-inch backpack boasts a subtle design — well, as subtle as anything with a Bat-emblem can be.
Walgreens is launching a cosmetics line of Wonder Woman beauty products, featuring such products as: Warrior Woman lip gloss, Paradise Eye-land Eyeshadow, An Eye For Justice liquid eyeliner and a Grace and Power nail polish kit, among other items.
Additionally, a Comic Beauty Book set, an Amazonian Bronze Beauty set, a four-piece hair accessory set, a five-piece makeup brush set and a makeup tote will be available as part of the Wonder Woman Beauty Collection.
For those of you longing for the good old days when Green Arrow had a goatee, rejoice — the fan-favorite look has returned, thanks to the latest addition to Mezco Toyz’s One:12 Collective line of figures, which sees Oliver Queen back with facial hair.
Currently available for pre-order, the figure is being sold for $75 USD and releases this fall. 1:12 scaled and highly realistic, the latest Mezco Green Lantern figure comes with 32 points of articulation, fabric clothing and an adjustable hood. Take a look at some pics below:
The Clown Prince of Crime is about to become the Clown Coaster of Six Flags. Following the opening of the Joker Chaos Coaster in Six Flags’ Atlanta theme park, another Joker-themed ride is set to open in Jackson, New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure. Simply titled “The Joker,” the 120-foot-tall coaster is described as a 4-D, free-fly coaster that flips riders upwards of six times and features two “beyond 90-degree” drops.
To get comics readers and coaster riders alike pumped for the new attraction, Six Flags has posted a new construction update video that includes “The Joker’s” inaugural test ride. And yeah, it’s as much of a doozy as the above description implies.
Supergirl is flying into LEGO Dimensions.
According to BrickSet, the instructions for a Supergirl minifigure appeared Thursday on LEGO.com before they were quickly removed. They reveal a gold base, instead of the typical blue for Dimensions figures, leading to speculation that Supergirl might be an exclusive promo.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie is still more than three months away, but we’ve already plenty of related merchandise, from DC Collectibles statues to Pop! vinyl figures to Harley Quinn’s “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt. Now add to the list a Joker action figure that not captures that tattoos of the film’s Clown Prince of Crime, but also his, let’s say, unhinged nature.
Protecting Neo-Gotham is exhausting work, especially when you have a curmudgeonly Bruce Wayne breathing down your neck, and a rogues gallery nipping at your heels. So why not unwind in this Batman Beyond costume robe?
Equipped with a hood, to protect your secret identity and cover your damp hair, the 100-percent polyester robe is emblazoned with the red Bat-symbol. It also has “spikes” on the sleeves, presumably for decorative purposes only — although you may find otherwise if The Joker attacks in the bathroom.
No matter who’s wearing the cape and cowl, whether it be Adam West, Michael Keaton or Christian Bale, it’s the person wearing the impeccable suit and tie of butler and confidante Alfred Pennyworth who’s consistently the most valuable player of the Batman franchise.
Whether its Alan Napier, Michael Gough, Michael Caine or Sean Pertwee looking out for Bruce Wayne’s best interests, Alfred always comes equipped with a sharp tongue and more common sense than his employer. And for that, Slate pays tribute to the true hero of Gotham with this montage that races eight decades of Alfred on screen.
After impressing earlier this year with its Shazam figure, Mezco’s One:12 Collective races back in with another DC Comics superhero. And from the looks of it, fans won’t be disappointed.
Well, you might be a little disappointed if you prefer Wally West, because this 6-inch action figure is based on Barry Allen. But one look at the highly detailed fabric costume and fun accessories may win you over.
First there was the licensed “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt, and soon cosplayers will be able to get their hands on a bat and comically oversized mallet, just like the ones Harley Quinn wields in the Suicide Squad movie.
Well, not just like. They’re part of Factory Entertainment’s SWAT (“Soft Weapons and Tactics”) line, which also includes plush replicas of Batman’s Batarang and Wonder Woman’s sword and shield from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
You may think you know everything about Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, but you don’t truly know DC Comics’ Trinity until you’ve looked inside them to see what makes them tick. Like, really looked inside them, at their skeletons and organs.
Mighty Jaxx has released a trio of collectible figures that does just that, with dissections courtesy of artist Jason Freeny, known for his anatomical prints and toys. Think of it as looking at the heroes with the Man of Steel’s X-ray vision.
Bruce Wayne is serious about a lot of things, not the least of which is branding. There’s the Batmobile, the Batcave, the Batarang, the Batcopter, the Batcycle and, yes, even Bat Sprays. Now add to that list Bat-underwear.
The age-old question of whether The Joker prefers boxers or briefs is answered with the new wave of adult-size Underoos. (Ever the trickster, the Clown Prince of Crime is apparently a boxer briefs kind of guy.)
The Joker men’s set is joined by Supergirl, Deadpool, Robin, Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman, and BB-8 for women. There are also Civil War Captain America and Iron Man boxer brief sets for boys.
