DC Essentials are in the building, and we are taking a look at the first two releases in the all new DC Collectibles action figure line. Essentials are a return to familiar form for DC Collectibles, the 6.75 Inch scale. Prior to DC Icons and the Animated series figures, most releases for DCC were in the 6.75 Inch scale. They moved down for Icons, but the line didn’t click with fans and they rebooted into what we have here today, DC Essentials. The line is meant to be an ongoing, all encompassing line, similar to Marvel Legends. Different eras, costumes and looks getting attention while keeping a uniform size and style.
The first wave consists of Batman, Deathstroke, Flash and Reverse Flash. We’ll take a look at the Speedsters tomorrow. Read on to check out our thoughts on Batman and Deathstroke, plus first impressions on the line overall courtesy of Entertainment Earth.
