Thanks to new entries from DC Collectibles, Hot Toys, Sideshow Collectibles, Kotobukiya and a variety of other companies, it was a big week for the women of DC Entertainment and the men of the upcoming film “Captain America: Civil War.” Meanwhile, Funko dove into both Ghostbusters pools and some classic Batman villains earn cloth figures from Figures Toy Company!
DC COLLECTIBLES | A good deal of DC Collectibles’ upcoming solicits saw the light of day during Toy Fair, but the company does have a few new pieces in the works! Wonder Woman rolls into the Gotham City Garage line looking perfectly rough and ready. Meanwhile, the Bombshells like will expand to include a series of busts based on Mera, Supergirl and Wonder Woman, plus a Halloween-inspired Batgirl full-size statue!
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR | As they say in those Bud Light commercials with Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer, everyone loves Paul Rudd. He was great in “Ant-Man” and now we’re anxiously waiting to see what kind of role he has in “Captain America: Civil War” which opens on May 6. The Hot Toys version based on the character’s new look in the film comes with a positively Rudd-ian alternate head plus the usual accessories like multiple hands and a tiny Ant-Man figure.
BATMAN RETURNS | “Batman Returns” might not be the most beloved comic book film of all time, but for viewers of a certain age, it was the craziest and best of the bunch. Michelle Pfeiffer’s leather-clad Catwoman probably had a lot to do with that, something Sideshow Collectibles clearly understands. The company added this 22-inch Premium Format Figure to the slate this week and fans of the 1992 sequel couldn’t be happier! Order yours now and she’ll be there early net year.
KOTOBUKIYA | Kotobukiya wound up slitting the difference this week by showing off great pieces based on Marvel and DC characters. The company took to Marvel.com to unveil a pair of pieces based on the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.” As you can see, none other than Cap and Iron Man will have new entries in the ARTFX+ line. Better yet, their interlocking bases fit together to show them facing off! Meanwhile, the company also debuted the New 52 ARFX+ Sinestro piece which ships in October in all his fear-mongering glory.
BATMAN ’66 | Batman and Robin were pretty great in the classic “Batman” TV series, but plenty of viewers tuned in to see which wild and wacky villains the Dynamic Dup would face off against. The latest line of retro figures from Figures Toy Company celebrates that by fully bringing on the bad guys. This wave, which will ship in late May, includes Egghead, King Tutt, Shane and The Mad Hatter!
FUNKO | Last but not least, Funko had an interesting mix of unveilings this week. First and foremost, check out the . The line-up includes figures of Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) and Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) plus Gertrude Eldridge and Rowan’s Ghost come June.
