DC Icons lives on! Wave 5’s Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, and Deathstroke are now out, with the carry over of Static from Wave 4, along with Deluxe Cyborg. Waves don’t really count here, as they get put out individually and staggered, but this is the 5th “Round” of standard releases. This wave of figures refocuses the line a bit with varied sculpt, well executed paint and meaningful accessories. We’ve shot them all in detail, so read on for some additional thoughts and 150 HD images!

The DC Comics Icons Accessory Pack #1 dropped late last year and is a way to add some additional weapons and accessories to your existing DC Icons line up. The set features items for Green Arrow, Harley Quinn & Joker, the Green Lanterns Hal Jordan and John Stewart, Batman and the Flash. Nothing here was absolutely necessary or missing from the original releases, but they do add some additional flare and display options. Check out over 40 images after the break!
We continue our DC Icons Galleries today with the Batgirl and Bike deluxe pack! This is the first vehicle offering into the Icons line with Batgirl’s bike and stand. The set comes from the Batgirl of Burnside run in the comics which was praised for the new direction by some but was a tad offputting to long-time Barbra Gordan fans. Batgirl’s suit is the star here, not sexualized yet still feminine, it’s a great new take on a modern female super-hero. In figure form the bike and it’s stand is stellar.

We’re catching up on our DC Icons Galleries starting today with the Darkseid and Grail 2 pack! This is the first over-sized offering into the Icons line with 12 inch Darkseid towering over the standard 5.75/6 inch figures. The set comes from the end of the New 52 era and the Darkseid War story arc in Justice League and related books. Fitting since Darkseid set off the New 52 era in Justice League #1 and was the catalyst for the Justice League forming in the first place (in that new timeline). This time he comes with his daughter Grail, who is half Amazonian to boot. You’ll have to read the books to catch up on all that, it’s a long story. Both are great in action figure form, so let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
Last up in our look at DC Icons wave 4 is our second Green Lantern in the run, John Stewart. John joins Hal Jordan’s deluxe release to start building out your Corps, coming with a Lantern, several ring effects pieces and multiple alternate hands.

Next up in our look at DC Icons wave 4 is Firestorm. Firestorm comes from his run in the New 52, specifically during the Trinity War crossover event. He features a pretty wicked translucent flaming hairdo and interchangeable clear hands with atomic ellipses. Overall pretty sharp, let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
We are catching up with our DC Icons Galleries today starting with #14 The Joker! DC Icons is DC Collectibles all era spanning line of 6 inch figures which pulls the best from stories past and gives them to us with a focus on articulation, paint and sculpt in a unified scale. The Joker here comes from the “Death in the Family” books famously known for the death of Jason Todd back in the 80s. His overall look screams Joker, so let’s see what he can do after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
DC Icons wave 3 galleries conclude today with the Man of Steel himself Superman! Kal-El sports a classic look with primary colors galore, trunks and the yellow S on the cape. He’s based on the 1986 Miniseries “Man of Steel”, we think, as there have been many uses of “Man of Steel” throughout the years. Either way, it’s a classic rendition of Superman almost anyone will recognize. Take flight and head on in to see some additional pics and our thoughts courtesy of site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store!
My boss likes me to wear a smile to work. And DC Icons Harley Quinn does it well! Wave 3 looks continue today with arguably the best in the bunch, Harley Quinn. This is a modern take on the classic look from the animated series, giving her a more “real world” sculpt in those classic threads and colors. The opposing colors, playing card diamonds and jester hat are all present along with her painted face and stark lipstick. She comes packed with a cork gun and a mallet ready to do battle. Let’s take a closer look at the Joker‘s squeeze after the break courtesy of site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store!
Next up in our DC Icons Wave 3 galleries is Atomica. Atomica is a deluxe offering, coming with her Atom compatriots Ryan Choi and Ray Palmer, in different stages of shrinkage. Atomica is “The Atom” of Earth 3 where she was a villain along with partner in crime Johnny Quick. She eventually made her way to Earth Prime and played a key role in the Forever Evil story arc during the New 52. As a DC Icons figure, she is the first female offering along with Harley from this wave. Let’s take a closer look at what she can do after the break courtesy of site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store!
