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.
The three figures were part of a new line based on the upcoming animated film announced on a new episode of DC All Access, which you can check out below:
The three main anti-heroes are getting 6" figures, done in a similar style to the Batman: The Animated Series and The New Adventures of Batman figures — aping the look of the animation rather than translating the designs to realistic looking figures. Each one comes with sets of alternate hands for posing, with Wonder Woman and Batman get some extra bonuses: Wonder Woman gets her sword, and Batman gets an alternate masked head to reveal Kirk Langstrom's face:
What's interesting to note is that these are the first "animated" toys from DC Collectibles that aren't tied to the Batman cartoons, although still strictly within the Bruce Timm style. Does that mean we could get more down the line? Good lord, I would totally buy a Justice League/Justice League Unlimited line. That would be great.
The first wave of Justice League: Gods and Monsters figures will be available in Autumn — presumably for the same price the other animated series figures sell for, $25 each.
