DC Collectibles has announced that, for the first time, they will be creating action figures based on the numerous DC Comics Movies! That’s right, a long time request by fans is coming to fruition this year. And they’re kicking it off with some heavy hitters. Included are the following figures:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justic
- Armored Batman
- Wonder Woman
- Lex Luthor
- El Diablo
- Harley Quinn
Man of Steel
These were created using 3D sculpts and are based on their appearances in the films. The specific scale is not listed. Yahoo was given the first look and there’s a ton of extra info after the jump. Read on to see the pics as well.
Update – the line is confirmed at 6 Inch scale, to be called DC Films Premium 6’’ Action Figures
The beefed-up Batsuit helps the Caped Crusader in his showdown with the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman. Bats was created using scans of Ben Affleck and, like the rest of the new figures, has 36 points of articulation. The figure also comes with swappable hands, accessories that include grapple gun and grenade launcher, and a stand. (Available in September, $50)
Henry Cavill’s ripped physique is captured in this Batman v Superman version of Krypton’s favorite son. The figure includes a swappable head featuring Supes’s glowing red eyes as well as three different sets of hands. (Available in September; $45)
The third member of DC’s Trinity, played by Gal Gadot, is primed for battle, with her sword, shield, and golden lariat, along with interchangeable hands. (Available in November; $45)
The Man of Steel’s archnemesis (played by Jesse Eisenberg) makes his debut in the DC cinematic universe in Batman v Superman. Among his accessories: a case full of Kryptonite, changeable hands, and, our favorite, Lex’s trademark bald head. (Available in November; $45)
The grand dame of the Suicide Squad, the unhinged Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) comes all tatted up and extremely well-armed. In addition to her explosive collar (used to keep the villains in check during their missions), the figure includes a pistol and, of course, her hammer. (Available in 2017; price TBA)
This Squaddie (Jay Hernandez) has pyro powers and some creepy facial tats. (Available in 2017; price TBA)
Man of Steel is also well-represented in the new line of figures. Here’s the chief antagonist (played by Michael Shannon), a Kryptonian hellbent on destroying Earth. Zod also plays a key role in the upcoming Batman v Superman. The figure comes with three different heads (angry face, laser eyes, and mask) and an assortment of hands. (Available in September; $45)
Zod’s partner in mayhem (played by Antje Traue) models the latest in Kryptonian war armor and includes a swappable masked head, interchangeable hands, and a knife. (Available in September; $45)
Superman’s daddy (Russell Crowe) comes equipped with his Man of Steel armor, rifle, and interchangeable hands. (Available in September; $45)
From the DC Collectibles Press Release…
The new, ongoing DC films action figure line was created specifically with toy collectors in mind, delving deep into character line-ups and offering up to 40+ points of articulation – the most articulation points ever produced by DC Collectibles.
“This is the first time DC Collectibles has made action figures based on DC films, and with this much articulation and attention to detail, we’re not holding anything back,” said Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. “Its exciting to see our DC film slate bring to life so many great DC characters, and DC Collectibles is following suit with our action figure line. This line will include everything from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman, and even the obscure characters that will pop up in the cinematic universe. I can’t wait for fans of our films to get their hands on these figures.”
The first wave of DC films action figures will hit stores in Fall 2016 and will include Zod and Faora from Man of Steel and Armored Batman and Superman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first Suicide Squad action figures are set to release in 2017.
