Next up in our early looks at DC Collectibles Designer Series figures is Greg Capullo’s Catwoman. Releasing along side Wave 2’s Red Hood, Mr. Freeze, and Thrasher Batman, she rounds out some main players in Capullo’s New 52 Batman relaunch run. I’d have to say that Mr. Freeze is more impressive, but she still has some good qualities to her. Catwoman is set to release in December but she’s on the prowl today in our gallery after the break!
DC Collectibles next wave of Designer Series figures are here with round two of Greg Capullo’s Batman. Wave 1 consisted of Batman, Nightwing, The Riddler and Talon. Wave 2 sees a Red Hood, Mr. Freeze, Catwoamn, and Thrasher Batman (mech suit). Red Hood has been out for a bit but we haven’t picked him up yet, so he’s coming later. Today though we do have an early look at Mr. Freeze and Catwoman, with Mr. Freeze getting the full run down after the break. Read on for 30 high res shots and our thoughts!

Gentle Giant has announced a statue based on one of the robots from Neil Blomkamp’s upcoming film; Chappie. The film will tell the story of an self aware robot who learns what it is to be alive, and all the happiness and harshness that comes with that life. Gentle Giant’s Chappie “Scout 22″ 1/4 Scale Statue will stand over 18.5″ tall. From Gentle Giant:
“In the midst of rising crime and losses among the Royal South African Police, TetraVaal has introduced the successful SCOUT program to combat the deadly criminal elements that operate throughout the country.
Since the introduction of the Scouts, crime has plummeted, the police are safer and TetraVaal stock is at an all-time high.
Scout 22 is one of hundreds of robots that patrol Johannesburg, assisting the RSAP with high risk assignments that would otherwise be too deadly for their human counterparts to engage in.
Working with the original digital files used for the filming of Chappie, Gentle Giant Ltd brings you Scout 22. This ¼ scale high quality polystone statue stands approx. 18.5” tall and is posed at the ready with rifle on the dangerous streets of J-Burg.
It’s due for release in the third quarter of 2015. It is priced at $499. You can pre-order it Here.
Diamond Select Toys has sent along a new press release regarding the upcoming Mass Effect Minimates. These blind bagged series 1 figures will be available exclusively at Gamestop stores and Gamestop.com. See below for full details and some images after the jump.
BioWare and Diamond Select Toys Partner on Mass Effect Minimates for GameStop Stores
Mass Effect is one of the gaming world’s most epic franchises, with three installments that have taken gamers across the galaxy. Additional books, comics and an animated film have taken fans even deeper inside the world of the game, and now the sci-fi universe of the Mass Effect Trilogy is colliding with another giant universe – the universe of Minimates mini-figures!
Game creator BioWare and collectibles manufacturer Diamond Select Toys are uniting to release a full line of 2-inch Mass Effect Trilogy Minimates, and the first series is exclusively available at GameStop stores and gamestop.com. Individually packaged in blind bags, Series 1 will include eight characters, each featuring 12-14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts.
“The opportunity to work on a world as big as the world of Mass Effect is very exciting,” said Chuck Terceira, President of Diamond Select Toys. “Interpreting such a wide variety of human characters, alien races, armors and technology for the Minimates format inspires our designers and allows them to push the line into new and different areas. Factor in that many of us are big gamers, and we’re like kids in a candy store.”
The characters in Series 1 are:
- Commander Shepard: a soldier for the Systems Alliance (male version)
- Commander Shepard: a soldier for the Systems Alliance (female version)
- Liara: An Asari scientist turned information broker
- Tali: A female Quarian and mechanical genius who joins Shepard’s squad
- Garrus: A male Turian and Citadel Security officer who joins Shepard’s squad
- Wrex: A Krogan bounty hunter and mercenary; one of the last Battle Masters
- Ashley: A highly skilled Alliance Marine
- The Illusive Man: A former mercenary; now leader of the pro-human group Cerberus
Each figure will include a display base, and most come with weapons, including the game’s distinctive orange Omni-Tools. The Illusive Man will be the “elusive” character in Series 1, as he will be the rarest figure in the assortment.
First released in 2002, Minimates have been created for a number of video game properties, as well as numerous films, TV shows and comic books. For more information, visit Minimates.com!
