DC Artists Alley is a line of vinyl statues based on the work of specific artists by DC Collectibles. They are in different forms and styles, capturing the essence of the creator’s art style. They’ve kicked things off with several indie artists including Hainan “Nooligan” Saulique, Sho Murase, and Chris Uminga. The latter is what today’s set is featuring, and then specifically the Black and White variants of them. Since they are vinyl and non articulated, they are made for repainting into different looks and styles. Each variant run has different production numbers. The mass release versions of these figures are at 3,000 units, and these black and white variants are limited to 500 units. There are 5 different runs of the Chris Uminga ones right now, plus 3 SDCC Batman variants (available at Entertainment Earth, BTW). Check the cheat sheet attached to this story to see all the different ones so far.
All in all they are fun supplementary pieces for an action figure collector. I wouldn’t want a full line up of these guys personally, but I would definitely sprinkle a couple in with the rest of my figures. In fact, DC Collectibles gave away a variant of this Batman at NYTF in February, and he’s been on display in my DC area since. We’ve also snapped a few pics of that guy and included it here.
We’ve run the Black and White ones through the motions here today, read on to check them out including some comparisons with figures so you can see how they might fill out a display shelf, courtesy of DC Collectibles!
