The Animated Series get major love with new reveals
DC Collectibles is coming out swinging as San Diego Comic Con kicks off. They already revealed some fantastic additions to its Icons line now let’s see some more offerings. Fans of The Animated Series line should be ecstatic.
Probably the biggest reveal is the expansion of the line. From Superman The Animated Series comes Superman and Lois Lane. I’m curious if DC Collectibles will reveal a full scale expansion with Justice League Unlimited or wait until next year.
There’s certainly more than enough options from the Superman: TAS line to go through a year of releases. I assume we’ll see Lex Luthor in the first wave. Beyond that it’s wide open. Jimmy Olsen, Bizarro, Metallo are definitely candidates for early inclusion in the line as well as Toyman, Perry White, Maggie Sawyer and Dan Turpin. I’m excited about this reveal and this might be the last step to get me crossing over into this animated series line collection.
If DC Collectibles really wanted they could sink their figure-making teeth on a whole subset of the Fourth World characters. Darkseid, Kalibak and company were introduced in that show so it wouldn’t be a stretch.
It’s unclear if this is for the same figure from the promo image, but we’re also getting a Batman with a ‘blown out’ cape effect. Since I haven’t kept up with who has and hasn’t been made I’m wondering how many other characters are left for this line. DC Collectibles has done a great job with it. Hopefully they won’t be too hard to collect on the secondary market.
The DC Films line is also getting reinforcements from this year’s films. From Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes Aquaman, Batman and Knightmare Batman.
For the upcoming Suicide Squad we’ve got Captain Boomerang, Katana and Killer Croc.
Looks like it’s a pretty good time to be a DC Collectibles fan. What’s your favorite?
