Oscar-Winning Special Makeup Effects Artist Rick Baker Brings to Life The Clown Prince of Crime in New Life-Size The Joker Bust.

Musician and DC’s Young Animal Mastermind Gerard Way Designs Batman: Black & White Statues Set to Debut in 2018.

First-Ever “Doomsday Clock” Action Figures Will Strike Stores in 2018.

DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles from DC Entertainment, will celebrate 20 years of toy-making at this year’s American International Toy Fair in New York. To commemorate this milestone anniversary, DC Collectibles revealed huge plans for its 2018 lineup, including several high-profile collaborations such as a life-size bust of The Joker designed by one of Hollywood’s most celebrated special makeup effects artists, Rick Baker.

DC Collectibles also recruited My Chemical Romance frontman and DC’s Young Animal curator Gerard Way to put his own spin on DC’s iconic Batman and The Joker characters for the company’s longest-running statue line, Batman: Black & White. Other collectibles on tap for 2018 include new action figure sets based on Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s hit DOOMSDAY CLOCK comic book series and new variants for DC Artists Alley designer vinyls, plus several new additions to popular statue and action figure lines.

Best known for his work on Hollywood blockbusters such as An American Werewolf in London, Men in Black, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Planet of the Apes, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Star Wars, and the Thriller music video, among others, luminary special makeup effects artist Rick Baker has brought his monster-making talent to one of DC’s most iconic Super-Villains, The Joker. The Joker Bust by Rick Baker is designed, sculpted and painted by Baker and features the same spine-chilling attention to detail that can be expected from the Academy Award winner. Measured at 22.5″ tall, only 200 of these limited-edition busts will be produced, and each will be numbered. Fans can bring home this high-end collectible from DC Collectibles in October 2018 at a suggested retail price of $1000.00.

“DC Collectibles is always seeking out interesting artists from different industries to bring their unique art styles to DC’s popular characters, and we are thrilled to partner with Rick Baker on this sculpture,” explained Jim Fletcher, executive creative director of DC Collectibles. “From the disturbing eyes to the sinister smile, Rick did a masterful job capturing The Joker’s psychotic demeanor.”

“When DC Collectibles approached me about this project, I jumped at the chance to do something with The Joker,” said Baker. “The Joker is one of the most notorious Super-Villains of all time, and I had a blast depicting his twisted and demented personality through this bust. The DC Collectibles team was great to work with and gave me complete creative freedom to bring my version of the character to life.”

DC Collectibles has also tapped acclaimed musician and writer Gerard Way to design original iterations of The Joker and Batman for the company’s best-selling Batman: Black & White statue line. The eccentric character designs are based on sketches Way created for a past story idea and will now be brought to life as 7″ statues in 2018.

“I am extremely excited to have teamed up with the wonderful people of DC Collectibles to bring fans these visions of Batman and The Joker in physical and wonderfully monochromatic form,” said Way. “My ink and wash drawings of these two characters come from a pitch I had created, called ‘Kingdom of The Mad,’ which, in my opinion, is a very dark take on the characters– so seeing them in gorgeous black, white, and grey seems very fitting. I hope fans enjoy these different takes on the characters, and I am honored to now be a part of the Batman: Black & White family.”

“Our Batman: Black & White statue line has always been a great avenue to try new ideas and welcome new artists into the DC Collectibles fold,” said Fletcher. “Gerard’s indie art style is a perfect fit for this series and offers a fresh take on Batman and The Joker that we’ve never seen before.”

DC Collectibles will also debut new DOOMSDAY CLOCK action figures in 2018, based on Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s critically acclaimed comic book series. The 7″ figures will release in sets of two and will include fan-favorite WATCHMEN characters Dr. Manhattan, Ozymandias, Rorschach and the Comedian, plus two new DC universe characters – Mime and Marionette-created in DOOMSDAY CLOCK.

Capitalizing on excitement for the upcoming DC Artists Alley designer vinyl line, DC Collectibles also revealed new variants for the Hainanu “Nooligan” Salque and Sho Murase waves of figures. Black-and-white editions will be offered for Nooligan’s standard designs of Batman, The Joker and Harley Quinn, and special holiday designs will be offered for Murase’s Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Catwoman characters. These new variants join the already-announced standard and black-and-white versions of the Chris Uminga wave that debuts in June. Uminga’s wave will be followed by Nooligan’s vinyls in September and Murase’s in November.

“The feedback for our upcoming DC Artists Alley line has been fantastic,” noted Fletcher. “The first few Chris Uminga figures have already sold out at the retailer level, and we can’t wait for them to hit stores this summer. We hope fans embrace the different variant editions for each artist and collect them all!”

Additional collectibles debuting in 2018 include new DC Bombshells offerings, such as a Batman and Catwoman Deluxe statue, a statue featuring The Joker’s Daughter and a Nurse Harley and The Joker action figure 2-pack. There will also be new character additions to the highly anticipated DC Essentials action figure line and best-selling DC Designer Series statue series.

DC Collectibles Announces New Dark Nights: Metal Statue Line

Published

on

Dawnbreaker Statue

DC Collectibles just announced a new line of 7″ scale statues based on the DC Comics story arc Dark Nights: Metal. The upcoming statues will be based on the artwork of Greg Capullo, with nine characters planned. The first statues will be available in May 2019, and they are kicking off the line with The Dawnbreaker. This Green Lantern inspired version of Batman hails from Earth-32 in the comics. It will include an interchangeable portrait and will go for about $85 at retail.

Check out all the details below, and the teaser video above!

Straight from the pages of the bestselling DARK NIGHTS: METAL comics series comes an all-new line of 7” statues from DC Collectibles. These awesomely dark Batman statues honor Greg Capullo’s art from the comic book in stunning detail and are perfect additions to any Metal fan’s collection.

Launching in May 2019, the line will recreate eight characters from the series in total, including the fearsome Batman Who Laughs as a deluxe statue. You can also look for a Batman with baby Darkseid statue, as well as the six other Dark Multiverse Batmen: The Red Death, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, The Merciless and The Devastator.

Fans looking to build a perfect—and thoroughly metal—display should note that all of the statues feature uniquely shaped bases that are designed to be configured together in a variety of ways. It’s a DC Collectibles first! Even more, some of the pieces also feature interchangeable parts and articulation, another aspect which helps to set these statues apart from the rest.

DARK NIGHTS: METAL BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER will be the first statue out of the gate in May 2019 and will be available for purchase at an MSRP of $85.00 . Intricately sculpted by Adrienne Smith, The Dawnbreaker features an interchangeable hand, allowing you to switch between his normal appearance and one where he’s forming a construct.

“We wanted to celebrate DC’s successful run of the Metal series through this statue line,” explained DC Collectibles’ creative executive director, Jim Fletcher. “It’s thrilling to see Capullo’s Batmen designs to come to life in 3-D form and we think fans will really enjoy the intricate details and customizable accessories and bases. While not poseable, these statues are basically in scale with all our previous Capullo action figures, so they will be great companion pieces when they are all displayed together.”

When asked how it was working with DC Collectibles on this project, superstar artist, Greg Capullo, couldn’t have been more excited.

“Is this cool or what!?” said Capullo. “I knew Scott and I had created some really fun characters when we were doing Metal. Seeing them brought to life in this way is an amazing feeling.”

With the success of the comics series and the number of metalhead comic fans out there, these statues are likely to move pretty quick. Don’t miss your chance to grab them as they roll out throughout the upcoming year for yourself or any Dark Nights: Metal fan in your life.

Jim Fletcher Talks New DC Core Statues from DC Collectibles

Published

on

DC Core Statue - The Joker

DC Collectibles is currently gearing up to release a new line of 9-inch PVC statues to give fans that don’t want to shell out big bucks for a statue, the opportunity to own a dynamic smaller statue for their display shelves. We have seen these in DC Collectibles’ official solicitations over the past few months, with the first state (Batman) scheduled to hit stores next month. The DC Core Line brings vibrant character, compact display size, and budget-conscious pricing together in an unbeatable way, and is sure to prove popular with collectors.

DC Collectibles’ Creative Director Jim Fletcher sat down with Entertainment Earth, to give fans the low-down on the new statues. According to Fletcher the reason behind this new line boils down to price point and flexibility. “They have the same quality and intricate attention to detail as our resin statues, but are far less fragile, and are at a lower price point. PVC material also allows for more dynamic poses, so you won’t see many of these designs anywhere else”, says Fletcher.

Fletcher says that each one of these statues takes around 10-12 months to develop, from the original concept sketch, until it’s in-store date. The statues went through several iterations from the design process to actual sculpting by Alejandro Pereira and David Pereira. After they are released to stores, the team at DC Collectibles will watch the market for them very closely, to decide wether or not to continue developing more.

Aside from the current five on pre-order, Fletcher said, “we have a few more surprises later next year as well!”

You can currently pre-order the DC Core Batgirl Statue, DC Core Batman Statue, DC Core The Joker Statue, DC Core The Flash PVC Statue or the DC Core Wonder Woman Statue from Entertainment Earth, today!
