The 2016 DC Collectibles Lineup is Packed With Awesome
2016 is going to be a great year for action figure collectors, according to DC Entertainment and the 2016 DC Collectibles lineup. This will mark the first collectible action figures that DC has produced for the previously released Superman: Man of Steel and upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad films, based on their DC properties. With figures such as Zod, Jor-El, Superman and Wonder Woman, they are all made to resemble their respective actors from the movies. “This is the first time DC Collectibles has made action figures based on DC films, and with this much articulation and attention to detail, we’re not holding anything back,” said Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment.
Harley Quinn, a fan favorite character, will get her own brand new line of action figures, designed by Amanda Conner who has been a big name for Harley Quinn for quite a while. Various designs will be used to make 4 statues based on different story arcs, including both the classic style and the New 52 current design. In addition, fans of Batman: The Animated Series action figures can rejoice, with over 20 figures announced, and a Batwing large enough to seat action figures.
DC’s comic book line statues have also been announced, with a Jim Lee Superman (including a Jim Lee sketch), a Darkseid and Grail 2-pack, a Justice League 7-pack, a Deluxe Batgirl statue, and much more. Greg Capullo and Darwin Cooke also participated in this year’s creations with Aquaman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman, and more, each getting a statue as designed by the authors. In addition, a Super-Pets Plush Joker Fish was announced, as well as a few Batman: Black and White statues, including the Joker as designed by Frank Miler. TV series Green Arrow and Flash will get a 2-pack set, as well as Batman: The Arkham Knight Batgirl and Oracle 2-pack set. Wonder Woman will also get a large scale statue, as well as a 3-pack, including iconic looks such as the one from All-Star Comics #8, which was her first appearance.
