Hey, hey, DC Collectors! Yes, it’s been a while since our last “Ask DC Collectibles,” but rumors of the column’s demise are greatly exaggerated. No, we’ve just been busy designing and developing next year’s amazing collectibles. However, we received a bunch of great comments on Facebook from our San Diego Comic-Con recap and wanted to respond to some of the questions. So let’s get to it!
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.
Last week, we asked for your questions about the new DC Collectibles that were unveiled at Toy Fair, and ever since then, the queries have been rolling in. We thought we’d start with one of the most frequently asked: How many points of articulation will be included in the new DC Comics Icons Action Figure line?
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
Welcome back to our DC Collectibles corner as we answer some new questions asked by YOU! This month we want to talk all about action figures. We love them. You love them. We make them. You buy them. And the magic begins…
Question 1: Marc, Erik and Carlitos want to know the thinking behind the New 52 Action Figure 2 Packs and 7 Packs. Will the figures ever be released as solo figures? Why should they buy a pack when they already have some of the figures?
This week in ask DC Collectibles, we’ve decided to go a bit behind the scenes with our work on the Man of Steel statues, so all of your action figure questions with have to wait until next time!
Before we get to it however, one of them (the Jor-El statue) was just seen on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel!

This week in the Injustice Battle Arena, Jim Fletcher, the lean mean sculpting machine that is DC Entertainment’s Director of Creative Services and Kevin Kiniry, DC Entertainment’s suave, yet savage Vice President of Creative Services face an unrelenting assault of hard-hitting questions!
