Hey there, DC Collectors! Welcome to the very first installment of a new feature we’re calling “DC Collectibles Artist Spotlight.” No real surprises here, it’s basically what it sounds like. Every now and then, we’ll spotlight one of our many talented artists in a special interview here on DCComics.com. It could be a sculptor, a designer, a modeler… Pretty much any artist involved with DC Collectibles is fair game.
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
Happy Wednesday, DC Collectors! As you know, today is new comic book day, but around here, it’s also the day for new action figures as well. Yesterday, we gave you an early look at Hawkman, the newest action figure in our DC Comics – The New 52 line. So which great New 52 super hero or villain will follow in Hawkman’s footsteps? Er, airstream…er…
Which great New 52 character will be the next New 52 action figure?
“Faster than a speeding bullet,” may be the Man of Steel’s thing, but it could also be used to describe the speed at which we hit our newest Facebook milestone. As we mentioned here last week, we recently surpassed 100,000 likes on the DC Collectibles Facebook page. You know what that means, right?
Well, when we reached 10,000 Facebook fans, we knew we were doing okay. That’s a cool little club of devoted fans. With 50,000… Well, that’s more than just a crowd, right? But 100,000 Facebook fans… That’s a full on party.
Not all that long ago, we celebrated crossing the 50,000 likes mark on the DC Collectibles Facebook page. We were so excited about crossing such a major milestone that we planned an entire week of cool stuff to celebrate it. There were original videos, giveaways, a poll to vote on a new Bombshell design and much, much more. With 50,000 fans in our corner, it was quite the party.
So imagine what it’ll be like with 100,000.
A week ago, as part of Batman Month, we made this little video looking at a few highlights from our many, many Dark Knight action figures. We had fun putting it together, you seemed to have fun watching it, and a few people over here had FAR too much fun playing with all of the action figures. However, the title of the video was definitely a little misleading. We didn't have time to show you 75 different Batman figures. Not as a video.
So, we have this hero that wears a lot of black and he’s celebrating a little anniversary this year. Seventy-five years… Ring any bells?
Yes, of course we’re talking about Batman. We’ve been talking about Batman all month long here on DCComics.com, and for good reason. He’s one of the most popular characters in fiction. Not just in comic fiction—fiction period. Batman’s been around longer than most of us, and yet he’s more popular than ever. That’s why we’re having this 75th anniversary celebration.
