Jim Fletcher Talks New DC Core Statues from DC Collectibles

Published

on

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!

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.

DC ARTISTS ALLEY: BATMAN, ROBIN, THE PENGUIN AND CATWOMAN BY JOE LEDBETTER VINYL FIGURES

A skilled and multifaceted creator, Joe Ledbetter (a.k.a. JLed) has experience as an artist, illustrator and (perhaps most importantly for Artists Alley)…a toy designer. Born from humble origins in underground art shows and influenced by 1980s video games, animation and skateboarding, he’s risen in prominence thanks to his crisp, bold lines, a vibrant palette and work that is socially conscious, reflective and human.

JLed’s anthropomorphic creature work has been a hallmark of his design, and his take on DC characters is a delightful mix of literalism and playfulness.

Crafted from the artwork of Guillem March, a multifaceted artist who has produced multiple covers for Harley Quinn comics, the newest entry in the HARLEY QUINN RED, WHITE & BLACK statue line brings a playful, minimalist-tone to the Maid of Mischief.

BATMAN BLACK & WHITE: WHITE KNIGHT BATMAN BY SEAN MURPHY STATUE

designed by SEAN MURPHY

What if the greatest villain in Gotham City was not The Joker, but Batman? That question is at the core of the epic eight-part limited series BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT, which featured the writing and art of Sean Murphy.

This limited-run Black & White statue captures Murphy’s take on an alternate-continuity Dark Knight. Cast in a descending action pose, this is a more unrefined, dangerous and imposing

Batman and is a must for fans of Murphy and the Caped Crusader.

An all-star piece in its own right, it also serves as a great companion piece to the original, 1940s-era women’s baseball-inspired design from Ant Lucia. This 10.5″ tall, carefully crafted polyresin statue hits stores in April 2019 and is limited to just 5,000 total figures.
