DC & Marvel Action Figures

Post by Wednesday Toys on Sun Apr 28, 2013 7:05 am

As Tic Toc Toy reports that DC Entertainment are now taking pre-orders for figures from their Mortal-Kombat-esque game Injustice: Gods Among Us. These action figures look great, and will be a must for any DC fan!


And DC have just revealed images of the New 52 Cyborg Superman - and he looks amazing! Hopefully it won't be long until we see this guy in toy form at some stage - preferably a deluxe version if this image is anything to go by!

In DC News, New 52 super hero Captain Marvel AKA Shazam!! get's the toy treatment, with removable hood! A kid who gained the powers of a super human by saying a secret word... how could that not appeal to a youngster growing up?

In Toy news, DC have announced their latest line-up of toys, based on games, and they look great. Batman looks great in Arkham: Origins, and the Atomic Age Wonder Woman statue looks killer! Check out the link for a glimpse of their other figures.

Black Adam is quickly becoming one of my favourite Super Villains - and the New 52 version of him gets the toy treatment! He looks amazing, and will be on sale this November.

There's a new Joker 1/6th scale in town - the Mime Joker! I think he looks good, although people are saying that it is a waste of a re-paint (hey Khai? Razz ) The face sculpt is amazing.


Speaking of Hot Toys, here's Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. He comes with a gun. A really big gun.

In DC news, a Super Alloy version of the New 52 Superman is being released by Play Imaginative. Like your super heroes more super-y? This guy not only looks fantastic, but he's more than 80% Die-Cast! Heavy!



Also Mattel's released images of the Gods Among Us Green Lantern. I'm not sold on the head sculpt, but it is an interesting take on the green dude.

And speaking of NECA's twitter page (as I was elsewhere), they've also got a cool behind-the-scenes shot of the latest Superman figure - a test shot for his packaging!

There are some great pics of the up-coming Iron Man Mk VII figure by Sideshow. The detail is amazing! They really go all out with their figures.


Iron Man in spaaaaaaaace! Well, this is his space suit, in a 1/9th scale toy version, which looks fantastic, by Dragon Models

There's lots of Marvel hero figures out and about, now here's a nice one of Giant Man's villainous creation - Ultron! Here is a gold version that may or may not be an official re-paint of the more traditional (and official Hasbro) silver.

Speaking of super heroes, though not DC or Marvel, NECA are bringing out a range to tie in with the up-coming Kick-Ass 2 movie. The figures are highly detailed, although some have swear words printed on them - so be warned they're 'R' rated!

Deathstroke - I saw somewhere that this is a 12 inch figure, to boot. I'm not a huge Deathstroke fan, but this figure looks great, and if he's relatively affordable I'm in for in for one Smile

Square Enix have released pictures of the up-coming Play Arts Kai variants of Batman, the Flash (who looks especially cool), and Batgirl.  They've got a lot of nice touches, and to me they look like they're ready to go kill some vampires!  And the Flash looks like he's joined forces with Marvel rival Tony Stark to create his suit.

Toys R Evil have a great right up on the exclusive Gold Iron Man Mark XXI. This 1/6th figure by Hot Toys looks very, very expensive - and he's limited to 800 items, I believe.

Matty Collector has announced a new superhero 'Wayne' figure for next year's sub - not Bruce Wayne but his son, Damian Wayne - and doesn't this newer Robin look killer! Damian is the son of Bruce and Talia al Ghul, and looks more than capable of handling himself.

Hot Toys have recently released pictures of their up-coming 12" General Zod figure from Superman: Man of Steel. This figure looks absolutely amazing in it's own right, regardless of whatever movie it is tied to. Zod's detail is just staggering!






After the success of the ARTFX+ DC Super Hero figures, ARTFX have announced they'll tackle the Avengers! So that's Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Hawkeye... They did a fantastic job with Superman et al, and I'm very keen to see how the Marvel team shape up!




Speaking of Iron Man, Hot Toys have announced a series of Iron Man 1/6th Scale Busts Series - 7 in total with a possible 8th. They look amazing, and as they'll be by Hot Toys, the detail on the finished product will be jaw-dropping.




Play Imaginative are releasing a phenomenal 1/6th scale Super Alloy Green Lantern that is coming with a massive amount of accessories.

Not only does he come with a heap of swap-out hands and light-up eyes/GL ring, he comes with a dizzying array of armour!





Hobbylink Japan have just posted a cool picture of DC villain Deadshot - who's available for pre-order. This is a 7" version, and is from DC Collectibles.
