DC COLLECTIBLES | The world of artist-inspired action figure lines will grow by one come April 2016 thanks to DC Collectibles' Lee Bermejo line. This one kicks off with Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and Green Lantern.

If that's not enough DC hero and villain action for you, you'll just have to wait until next month's solicits.
IRON MAN | Thanks to his movie prominence, Iron Man rivals the most popular characters when it comes to collectibles these days. Kotobukiya adds to that number with their latest Iron Man Mark 45 ARTFX statue. Based on the character's appearance in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," this piece stands a foot tall and rest atop an Avengers A-logo.
BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES | Batman has had plenty of loves over the years, but none so more dangerous than Talia al Ghul, the daughter of the Demon. As such, she earns a place of prominence thanks to this Entertainment Exclusive-exclusive Femme Fatale PVC statue from Diamond Select Toys. The piece clocks in at 9 inches tall, stands on a base that includes some Lazarus Pit ooze and holds a gun, as well as Ra's al Ghul's mask from the animated series." Talia can be pre-ordered now and ships this fall.

More commonly known as the Power Loader, this deluxe vehicle fits most of the company's 7-inch scale figures, but does not actually come with one. It stands 11 inches tall and includes 30 points of articulation, plus lots of wires and cables to recreate the piece of equipment seen in the 1986 classic.
