Last year we reported on the big news that Monogram was adding DC Comics to its stable of licenses, and we already saw the first fruits of that partnership in the DC bust banks of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman. Now at Toy Fair Monogram has revealed a year’s worth of cool collectibles from the comics company, and there’s so much for DC fans to look forward to in 2013!
First up on the list are paperweights, spearheaded by the usual “Trinity” of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman plus the Green Lantern. Only a Superman prototype was at the booth, but reference art showed off the other three as well. Keyring offerings will include everything from the Bat symbol to Superman’s “S” shield, Wonder Woman’s logo, and more, while pin sets let you wear your favorite character. Journals, lanyards, key holders, magnet bottle openers, DC mini t-shirt/coin purse keychains, and other fun AND useful items bring the fun of the comics into everyday life as well.
Monogram’s figural erasers, a proven hit with Marvel, now extend into DC with a huge Series 1 available singly and in four-packs. A 2.75 inch figure set will include 10 different options (Wonder Woman, Robin, Joker, Green Lantern, Flash, etc.), 4 of which are Batman in different poses, while the 4 inch line will have 8 figure styles (Robin, Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, Flash, Wonder Woman, Bane, and Green Lantern. The smaller figures, in addition to being available singly, will be offered in three-packs of Batman, Joker, & Robin, Flash, Green Lantern, & Batman, and a trio of different Batman sculpts. Finally, there will be an 8 piece set of all the 4 inch figures for even easier collecting! We even got to check out some reference art of possible upcoming figures like Tim Drake Robin, a new Batman design, Reverse Flash, and Kingdom Come Superman!
