    Toy Fair 2017: Kotobukiya’s DC Figures

    I’ve never really understood the ‘Marvel vs DC’ mentality (don’t most comic fans read them both?) but if I was absolutely forced to pick I would be on Team DC. Because I’m basic as heck and I love Batman. So sue me! And, of course, I love me a good DC figure. Like the new Katana art they had out!

    Kotobukiya had quite a few DC figures on display at Toy Fair, like the huge 1/6 scale Justice League (well, at least Batman/Superman/Flash/Wonder Woman/Green Lantern).

    Kotobukiya Panel NYCC 2016: DC

    We got some very exciting DC-related announcements at Kotobukiya’s panel (Bishoujo Katana and the TV show teasers). But given how massive their DC lines are, it’s no surprise that there was a ton more! Like the affordable retro Super Powers figures, their villains ArtFX+ line (including the brand-new Harley Quinn–and a new sculpt for Black Manta), and their ArtFX statues.

    Toy Fair 2016: DC Collectibles Booth Overview

    We have seen quite a few things from DC’s Toy Fair booth already: the Suicide Squad statues, the Icons action figures, Amanda Conner’s Harley Quinns, the movie action figures, Batman Vs Superman stautes, the Batman the Animated Series line, and most importantly the Bombshells!

    But you know what all those are missing? Rainbow Batman figures, something we all need of course. And plushies of some of their cutest animal pals, including my favorite: Dex-Starr! Plus much more, which you can check out below.

Some of them seem a little less, um, iconic (Firestorm, really?), but the lineup looks great so far–if you like male heroes. Not many girls here, it seems.</p>
