This is it, the last of the New 52 figures from DC Collectibles. The DCC New 52 line started in 2012 based on the relaunch of DC Comics in 2011 which shot the characters into the modern age with new looks and new backstories. The line featured 7 inch figures with mid grade articulation but fantastic sculpts and paint. Over time they worked in more articulation upping their desirability. They went through a lot of characters from the core Justice League, to a villains sub-theme, to Earth 2 and a lot of universe fillers. The last wave featured Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, The Joker, and John Stewart, who we will take a look at today. We’ve also updated DC Collectibles recent checklist with the last wave of figures and the SDCC Blueline Batman! Check it all out after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
New 52 Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Metallic sheen pops
Green eyes nice touch
Lack of articulation (but that’s a given for the line)
Overall a great capper to the line. I’m sure we’ll get repaints here and there over the years, but for the most part we are done. New 52 has become DC YOU after the 2015 Convergence event, and the universe is moving on. On the toy front, DC Icons is starting up later this year and will pull from all generations of DCU, a little smaller 6 inch format, and more articulation. I was a fan of the New 52 relaunch, and the toys that came with it allowed me to jump into the DC game since I was focused on other things when the Mattel DCUC line was in full swing. I think DC Collectibles has put out some great stuff over the last several years with New 52, the game figures, Designer series, and the Batman Animated offerings, I’ll be keeping these in rotation even after Icons takes it’s place.
