A League of Your Own: DC Collectibles JL Movie Statues

DC Collectibles sextet of Justice League Movie superheroes statues.

In less than 24 hours, the Warner/DC Justice League Movie will be released to the general public, and all the online speculation, movie trailer dissection can end. You’ll decide for yourself if this highly debated and anticipated film hits your sweet spot. Then you can hop back online to watch all the Easter Egg reveals.

The success of last spring’s Wonder Woman has certainly added more excitement for this team-up flick than the reception to Batman Vs. Superman did. It’s also nice to know we’ll get a second Wonder Woman installment.

One thing’s for sure. DC Collectibles has created a sextet of exceptional statues to compliment the film versions of Superman (Henry Cavill,) Batman (Ben Affleck,) Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot,) Cyborg (Ray Fisher,) Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Flash (Ezra Miller).

These figures join the selection of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman statues also on display last February at the Toy Association’s North American International Toy Fair in New York City.

DC Collectibles products range from articulated action figure play-sets to showcase quality, limited edition, sculpts like these. Sculptors include David Pereira (Aquaman,) James Masarno (Wonder Woman,) and David Giraud (The Flash).

I might dare say that I actually prefer these foot tall versions to the actual costume replicas as seen at New York Comic Con last month. Costume details on the life size versions felt distracting overall, especially on The Flash suit, which should be sleek and suggest the power of his speed.

Cho Knows…
Also just released is an excellent rendition of Frank Cho’s Wonder Woman Rebirth #1 cover art.

Putting Out The Fire With Gasoline: Meet the Superwomen of DC Comics’ “Gotham City Garage”

Gotham City Garage Statues from DC Collectibles – Wonder Woman as you’ve never seen her before!

DC Collectibles has been adding to their Gotham City Garage statue series over the last few years and showcasing them at Toy Fair and Comic Con. SkeletonPete knew I’d fall in love with them. He knows me too well. I was instantly drawn to these gorgeous sculptures, these beautiful superwomen on motorcycles, in particular, Wonder Woman, my childhood hero.

When I saw these DC heroines reimagined as fierce biker chicks, I could instantly envision a live action or animated series set in this universe. Shortly thereafter, creators Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly announced their plan for a comic book series of the same name. I couldn’t wait to dive in and that’s unusual for me, as I’m not typically a comic book collector. Well played, DC. Mission accomplished. You reeled me in… and at 99 cents per digital download, it was an investment I was more than happy to make.

Strange Days Indeed. This beautiful rendition of Marvel Comic’s Dr. Strange will join Mezco’s One:12 Collective.

The Toy Industry Association’s (TIA) 114th North American International Toy Fair in New York City is less than 24 hours away and as always we are preparing to bring you coverage of the newest products and toy trends for the latter year gifting season. Cameras are packed, lenses are polished, and we’re stocking up on energy bars for the 4 day foray that encompasses the entire Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and parts beyond.

Another Fine Mez…
Thanks to the fine folks at Mezco Toyz we got an amazing head start. Their recent sneak peek event (held at their outer borough Fortress of Solitude) afforded the opportunity to grab lots of unfettered photos of their upcoming offerings. This post will reveal the additions to their One:12 Collective, but you can expect plenty of pix of Living Dead Dolls and other licensed goodies to appear here as well. Keep in mind this is an advance look and many of these prototypes are still pending licensor approval.

Punch Drunk Love: Marvel Comics’ Punisher gets Mezco’s detailed One:12 Collective treatment.

Toyz Story…
I’ll keep the chatter down since this post was promised as a gallery of prototypes for Mezco Toyz‘ burgeoning One:12 Collective series first revealed at their pre 2016 American International Toy Fair event. Take a look, the details speak for themselves. Having had hands on experience with the Dark Knight Batman and the Star Trek Mr. Spock I can say that the production models are as refined as the prototypes.

I recommend you make a point of checking out Mezco’s website for information on each character, it’s accessories, and the pre-order schedule. Many are selling out early.

Punch Brothers…
We just received a communique from collectible figure artisans Kotobukiya unveiling their spectacular Dawn of Justice tableau with DC Comics icons Superman and Batman locked in combat. The ARTFX+ creation, scheduled for May 2016 release, is actually two individual 1/10 scale statues that fit together at the base to form the battle scene.
