DC Collectibles Designer Series takes a specific artist’s style and turns it into action figures. There have been several runs so far, the best being the Capullo Batman series. Earlier this year they dropped another solid set – DC Comic Bombshells. It features the art of Ant Lucia, who did the women of the DC Universe in WWII styles. Wave 1 was great, featuring Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Batwoman. Wave 2 is set to drop soon and features Hawkgirl, Mera, Katana and Batgirl. Again, all 4 are superbly done. We have them in hand so read on to check some additional thoughts and over 80 HD pics showing their stuff!

The DC Bombshells theme has been running in the DC Universe since 2011, when Ant Lucia did a set of prints featuring DC Heroines and Villains in a World War II look and feel. Lots of merch and even a digital first comic has come out since then, expanding beyond the original 4 of Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Batwoman and Poison Ivy. Fast forward and we now have these Bombshells in action figure form! The latest Desginer Series offering, DC Bombshells features those first 4 in 7 Inch scale with a wide range of articulation and accessories. And, the line is set to continue beyond these with Batgirl, Katana, Hawkgirl and Mera later this year! Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
Today we are wrapping up our DC Collectibles Capullo Designer Series Galleries. Superman, Aquaman and Green Lantern came out near the end of last year and it’s taken us a bit to get them shot for the site, but the set is finally complete! These three join Wonder Woman and Flash to finish their Justice League offerings. No sign of Cyborg at the moment :(.
The Capullo Series started back in 2014 and has continued on, extending past it’s original intent several times. These are 7 Inch scale, beefy cut figures meant to capture the design style of artist Greg Capullo, who ran the entire New 52 Batman comic book run. Folks may have strong feelings about the New 52 era, but most will admit the Capullo run for Batman was a gem. And these figures celebrate that well. As of now, no other Capullo figures are scheduled, but you never know with DC Collectibles, we might get another wave down the line!
Read on to check out over 75 HD images of these three in action, plus a nice big group shot of the entire Designer Series line up after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
The Capullo Designer Series figures have been some of my favorites since it launched back in 2014. A consistent scale and art direction with limited scope over the course of years. The way the line has progressed reminds me of the slow burn you get with S.H. Figuarts figures (DBZ in particular). Which is fine with me, you get a quarterly-ish drop of a couple new figs. The figures are some of DC Collectibles best, featuring a bulky 7 inch scale and more articulation than most other offerings. They are continuing the line way past it’s original intent, and have now dug into later arcs of the Greg Capullo run. Today’s shoot is of the CGPD Batman Mech Suit 2 pack, coming with the inner figure and the suit in one box. Minor spoilers – this isn’t Bruce Wayne, it’s Jim Gordon who took up the mantle of Batman on behalf of the Gotham Police Department using a mechanized suit when Batman went missing. You’ll see the police vibe on the figure once you realize what it is. Let’s take a closer look after the break with 50+ shots courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

We wrap up our DC Collectibles Capullo Designer Series galleries today with a look at Zero Year Survival Batman. This rendition of the Bats shows off his look from the Zero Year story arc telling his first year as Batman and the Riddler’s eventual take over of Gotham. It’s his first major act as the Batman, he’s wearing a proto Batsuit with more real world accessory tech meant for infiltration so he can liberate the city. The figure is one of the sharpest yet so let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
Galleries for the Capullo Designer Series figures from DC Collectibles continue today with a look at The Flash and Wonder Woman, the line’s first foray outside of the immediate Batman universe. Both feature the bulky 7 Inch scale bodies with Capullo art inspired face sculpts. They’re out now, so let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
DC Collectibles Capullo Designer Series figures have been some of the best DC action figures produced – if not in recent times then ever. 7 Inch scale, above average articulation, bulky sculpts with detail, great paint. The only thing off-putting (to some) is the artistic take on the faces, meant to capture the art style of Greg Capullo, artist during the New 52 era and arguably one of the greatest Batman runs in the comics. The line proved so popular that they’ve extended it beyond the initial 12. End Game Joker begins the second wave, he’ll be joined by Wonder Woman, Flash, Survival Gear Batman, and a Jim Gordan Batman / GCPD Mech 2 pack. We’re taking a look at End Game Joker today, so head on in to see him go head to head with Batman courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
Back in 2014 DC Collectibles released their first Designer Series action figures based on the artwork of Greg Capullo and his run in the New 52 Batman comic. The figures are in 7 inch scale, a little bulky, and featured a wider range of articulation than their New 52 line did. 12 figures were planned and solicited, but only 11 came out. Two Face was set to be released along with Gordon, Batgirl and Zero Year Batman, but never dropped. Well, about a year later he is finally here! Just in time too as the line is continuing with Joker, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Survival Suit Batman (see here and here). We’ve been waiting for this for a year now, so let’s take a look after the break!
The Toyark is running catch up today with a figure out in limited quantities late last year, Thrasher Armor Batman from the Capullo Designer Series. He’s now getting a wider release, we have our copy, and he’s awesome. He first showed up almost a year ago at Toy Fair 2014, and ever since then I’ve been itching for him. I’m a fan of Batman and Transformers, robits and mechs in general, so mashing the two up in a big ass Batmech is almost too good. This armor comes from the Court of the Owls story arc where a team of Talon‘s got into the Batcave, so Batman jumps in this bad boy and goes to town. Check out over 50 photos of the Thrasher Armor along with our thoughts after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
The Toyark is ending it’s galleries for DC Collectibles Designer Series Wave 3, and the year, with Batgirl! Barbra Gordon gets the Capullo treatment in her New52 v1 look, rocking an all black with yellow highlights suit and her trademark red hair. Read on to see over 25 high res shots and our thoughts!
