Yesterday we got a look at DC’s Justice League Gods and Monsters with a video showing off the trailer, announcement of a companion comic book series, and first glimpses at the action figures from DC Collectibles. We now have additional high resolution images of the figures from DCC featuring Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman in the alternate universe costumes. As we thought yesterday, these 6 inch figures are definitely taking on design cues and articulation from the Batman Animated series figures rather than the 7 inch less articulated versions. Check them out after the break!
