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.
It’s fair to stay that Dustin Nguyen is a pretty big Batman fan.
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.
With fun, uniquely different takes on some of DC Comics most beloved heroes and villains, it was only a matter of time until we gave the champions of Infinite Crisis the DC Collectibles action figure treatment. First unveiled at Toy Fair in February, this eagerly awaited new line of figures is set to make a splash later this year with an initial wave of figures that include Atomic Green Lantern, Mecha Wonder Woman, Pajama Party Harley Quinn, Atomic Poison Ivy and Renaissance Batman.
You guys ask some good questions. You know that, right? Whether it’s in person at conventions, on the DC Collectibles Facebook page, or even right here on DCComics.com, you’re never afraid to speak up. With so many great new lines of DC Collectibles on the horizon, and so many cool statues and action figures in stores now, it’s hardly surprising that the level of questions we’ve been getting has been pretty high.
