DC Collectibles at Toy Fair 2018 tries to go a bit more budget friendly

DC Collectibles has always been synonymous with high-quality products, but basing assumptions on Toy Fair 2018, the company is going to be making some definite changes this year.

DC Collectibles has been at the top of the collectibles game for ages, but it has also come to be a very expensive hobby for many folks and made it more difficult for a lot of people to jump on board. Things seem to be changing this year with an introduction of several new cheaper lines, but while also maintaining the higher-end products.

Jumping in, however, the DC Bombshells line has been a phenomenal hit for DC. That statue series that re-imagines characters from the comic as pin-up girls from the 1940s has spawned an art book and comic series, and the line will continue to expand this year with new statues and a new 2-pack of action figures of Harley Quinn and the Joker.

  • Wonder Woman is due in July
  • Joker’s Daughter and the figure 2-pack will hit shelves in Oct
  • Batman & Catwoman double statue will see the light of day in November

There will be a lot of new action figures this year, many of them coming out one-on-one meaning one hero and one villain.

  • DC Essentials Batman, Deathstroke, Flash, Reverse Flash will launch in July
  • DC Essentials Superman, Brainiac, Aquaman, Black Manta will hit in September
  • Doomsday Clock Ozymandias and Dr. Manhatten will launch in September
  • Doomsday Clock Rorschach and Mime will launch in October
  • Doomsday Clock Comedian and Marionette will launch in November
  • DC Batman: The Animated Series Harley Quinns expressions set will launch in August

DC Collectibles is really embracing the artist community this year with multiple new releases that will see some new takes on your favorite characters.

  • Nooligan Batman, Joker, and Harley will hit in colored and Black & White versions in September
  • Sho Murase Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn in both stylized colors and holiday colors will be available in November

As a child of the 1970s, the 1980s were the height of my comic book reading, and that means that just like every kid I was obsessed with the original comic version of The New Teen Titans. DC Collectibles is now releasing a multi-part statue series that will allow you to recreate the cover of the very first issue.

  • Robin and Starfire will release in August
  • Cyborg and Beast Boy will hit the shelves of your bedroom in September
  • Wonder Girl and Kid Flash will speed onto the scene in October
  • Raven will complete the set in November

And wrapping up the year… hold on.
