There’s a lot of awesome stuff that DC Collectibles has announced at Comic-Con this year. But I don’t think anything quite compares to a set that is basically just a series of different expressions for the Batman: The Animated Series-style figure. I mean, look at them!
Toy Fair is always a wonderful time of year for comics fans, a chance to see the superhero merchandise that will drain your wallet (alongside what your weekly comics subscription does to it already). DC is no exception, and their slate of new toys this year is amazing—including a Batwing the size of your torso.
You wouldn’t think that a six pack of repainted Batman action figures had a tumultuous history, but here we are. Early last year, DC almost released this collection of toys based on one of the most infamously absurd covers of Detective Comics—but the set lost out on a fan poll, dooming it to non-existence... until now.
DC have unveiled a whole host of new action figures at Comic-Con. Want to see what’s coming to your Toy shelf over the next few months? Here’s a breakdown of all the new toys coming from the world of DC.

Bruce Timm's latest entry into the DCAU, Justice League: Gods and Monsters, features a pretty radical new version of DC Comic's trinity. But they aren't just coming to animation — the new iterations of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman are also getting some lovely Toys from DC Collectibles.
Arrow has had a few action figures to its name, but somehow it's taken this long to get a plastic incarnation of everyone's favourite hacker badass, Felicity Smoak. Well, huzzah - DC Collectibles have unveiled her figure as well as new figures based on The Flash and Batman: The Animated Series too!
We've all got a soft spot for the Tumbler that Batman drove in the Christopher Nolan films, even the Batmobile from Tim Burton's take on the caped crusader was memorable. But nothing will ever top the sleek, art deco-inspired Batmobile from Batman: The Animated Series that many of us remember from our childhoods. So…
DC Collectables has just announced an all-new line of action figures based on the original Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures. They're six inches tall, based on Bruce Timm's classic designs, and they are gorgeous and you will want to buy them all. Period.
