Happy Friday, DC Collectors! We’ve been getting quite a few questions lately about the scale of our action figures. Seems like when we announced that our new Icons line of action figures will be at a 6-inch scale, more than a few of you worried that it meant we were doing away with our larger 6.75-inch figures.
Let me guess… You weren’t at Toy Fair. That’s not really surprising and is nothing to be ashamed of. Unlike, say, San Diego Comic-Con or South by South by Southwest, Toy Fair is a trade event. Industry professionals only.
But we don’t see why they should have all the fun.
A week ago, when we first announced that we had hit 250,000 “likes” on our DC Collectibles Facebook page, we asked you to send us your questions about our products, our processes, or anything else you felt like! As always, you responded and we sent five of our favorite and most frequently asked questions to our Vice President of Creative Services, Kevin Kiniry, to answer.
Hi DC Collectors and Facebook fans! Welcome to the “100K Likes” edition of Ask DC Collectibles, our semi-regular question and answer feature here on DCComics.com. A week ago, we asked for your DC Collectibles questions and you responded by posting over 100 questions and comments on our Facebook page. That’s a lot to try and cover, but we love a good challenge. Let’s get to it!
TIMELINE OF PRODUCTION
Earlier this year, DC Collectibles announced that they would be releasing a new line of action figures based on the highly influential and almost universally beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Fans were excited, and so were we. In fact, after we heard the news, we held an entire weeklong event here on DCComics.com to celebrate the series.
All this month on DCComics.com we're celebrating the 75th Anniversary of one of the DC Universe's... no, all of comics... no, all of FICTION's most popular and recognizable characters: the Dark Knight himself, Batman!
It seems like just yesterday that billionaire Bruce Wayne made the totally sane and reasonable decision to avenge his parents' deaths by dressing up as a giant bat and combating the criminals of Gotham City.
