For the most part, San Diego Comic-Con is four days of non-stop panels, merchandise-filled booths, and overall excitement punctuated by brief bouts of frantically applying hand sanitizer. For the very lucky few, it actually starts Wednesday with Preview Night, a chance to get a taste of all the action the evening before. I was one of the lucky ones, and was able to check out all of the new DC Collectibles that will be coming out in 2015-16. I will give you fair warning: say goodbye to your wallet. Or at least its contents. I guess you can technically keep the leather husk that once housed your hard-earned cash.
The lines represented in this collection include Arkham Knight, Flash, Arrow, The Designer Series featuring Lee Bermejo and Darwyn Cooke, DC Icons, Batman vs. Superman, DC Comics Bombshells, and Batman: The Animated Series.
You can check out the entire gallery below, but I picked out my top 5 favorites.
These are just the item we are allowed to show you! Still to come from DC Collectibles are a new designer series from fan favorite Batman artist Greg Capullo, a new wave of Batman: The Animated Series figures features Harley Quinn and Clayface, an Arkham Knight two-pack of Batgirl and Oracle, and my personal favorite, a lifesize replica of Captain Cold’s Cold-Gun from The Flash.
If you are clamoring for these amazing collectibles, fear not! Here is the release schedule so you can budget your allowances accordingly.
Batman: The Animated Series: The Batmobile
Batman vs. Superman: Batman Statue and Superman Statue
Arkham Knight Azrael, Professor Pyg, and Man-Bat
Batman vs. Superman: Armored Batman Statue
DC Bombshells: Cheetah
Designer Series (Darywn Cooke): Batman, Harley Quinn, Supergirl, and Adam Strange
DC Bombshells: Killer Frost
For those of you that are here in San Diego this weekend, make sure you pick up you exclusive, a Batman Figure based on a Jim Lee Pencil drawing.
This cool-looking addition to your collection will run you 40 dollars for the regular version, or 300 for the limited edition that includes hand-drawn sketches by Lee himself!
