We've already taken you on a tour of the action figures displayed at DC Collectibles' New York Toy Fair 2014 presentation, and now it's time to delve back into their corner of the exhibit hall to look at the statues and other interesting items coming soon! We'll jump right in with DC's longest running statue line, Batman Black & White. On display were the next three incarnations of the Dark Knight, notably Jae Lee's, Adams' zombie version, and a fantastic upcoming Michael Turner design! The company is taking what they've learned from Batman and are applying it to two new series called Superman: Man of Steel and Wonder Woman: Art of War! Featuring small-scale statues in full color (metallic for Superman), these lineups begins with Ed McGuinness, Shane Davis, and a cool Superman Animated version for the former and Perez, Hughes, and Paquette for the latter!
DC Collectibles has never been afraid to try new things, and several unique collectible items displayed at Toy Fair told us that they aren't changing that philosophy. Phasing right out of the DC Nation shorts is a Deadman plush toy that's at the same time adorable and kind of creepy. A new line of wooden figures captures iconic superheroes in a totally new style, with some articulation and even interchangeable heads! And if you're looking for something with a little more fashion, check out the upcoming Death porcelain doll.
Of course, DC had some amazing large scale statues on display as well from their various lines and even some new ones! It was definitely ladies night starting with the incredible Bombshells series capturing iconic characters in unique styles. The sultry Black Canary is doing huge preorder numbers, and up next is the contrastingly cute and innocent Stargirl. Conversely, after the patriotic young lady is the sexy Zatanna who has one of her trademark backwards spells written on her chest and comes with a rabbit version of Constantine that will be smoking a cigarette! Meanwhile, the Cover Girls line continues to bring the comic book versions of awesome DC ladies to life featuring Poison Ivy, Katana, and what I think is one of the coolest looking collectibles of Mera ever coming in November. A new series for DC is the Gotham City Garage collection that brings together iconic chracters and unique motorcycles. We got to see the initial Catwoman release and she was awesome. The anti-hero will feature a removable helmet and looked fantastic on her huge chopper. Look for the Garage line to bring one new statue out each year.
The very back of the DC Collectibles booth held what they called "Lifestyle" products, and these are super cool (and often super expensive) items for your home. They've partnered with McDermott to create very high end pool cues themed to Batman and Superman, so if you're a comic book fan with a pool table these are perfect for you. If darts is more your game check out the upcoming Batman themed dartboard with multiple sets of flights (no darts) coming in November. DC will be reissuing their popular Batman Utility Belt, a great display piece. Get in the games with DC with a superheroes vs. villains chess set or the new Supervillain Poker set featuring cards with incredible artwork, chips, and even a Society of Super Villains disc!
