BATTER UP! DC BOMBSHELLS, DC ARTISTS ALLEY AND MORE TAKE CENTER STAGE

IN DC COLLECTIBLES APRIL 2019 LINEUP

 

Best-selling statue lines DC Core, Batman: Black & White and Harley Quinn: Red, White and Black

add new characters in April 2019

 

Next spring DC Collectibles will unleash new DC Bombshells, anthropomorphic creatures and new statues starring Harley Quinn, Sean Murphy’s WHITE KNIGHT Batman, the Flash and more—all set to invade stores in April 2019.

 

Leading the charge just in time for spring training is a new Batwoman statue featuring artist Ant Lucia’s popular DC Bombshells design in a striking red “away uniform” variant paint color. The statue measures the same 9-inch scale as the original version and is intricately sculpted by Tim Miller.

 

“As a longtime DC fan, working on the DC Bombshells line and seeing how popular the designs have become has been a dream come true,” said Lucia. “I think this line is so unique. I love that we took these characters and showed them in a way that they have never been seen before. Batwoman’s nostalgic design was one that the fans took to immediately, and that I would say seems to be one of the most popular in the cosplay community. The concept behind her was clever in its simplicity, and I love the strength and confidence she portrays in the design.”

 

Also in April 2019, DC Collectibles will release new cutting-edge DC Artists Alley designer vinyl figures by fan-favorite toy designer Joe Ledbetter. Ledbetter is known for his distinct, bold lines and vibrant palette and has worked with such top brands as IKEA, Swatch, Nike, Sony Music and Kidrobot. Now Ledbetter will bring his unique style to the DC universe, putting his signature anthropomorphic spin on iconic characters Batman, the Penguin, Catwoman and Robin.

 

“I’m a huge Batman fan, and to have the opportunity to work with DC Collectibles on a set of Batman characters is a huge deal in my world,” said Ledbetter. “I just love the idea of a bat in a Batman suit, a penguin as the Penguin, etc. There’s something there that’s quite funny and interesting and really excites me. I like to think that these animal Batman characters inhabit a parallel universe where Gotham City is entirely populated by anthropomorphic critters, including the Caped Crusader himself. I think the fun, enthusiasm and love of Batman, Robin, Penguin and Catwoman will shine through on these designer toys, and I hope they find a special place on collectors’ shelves.”

 

Ledbetter’s 7-inch scale DC Artists Alley figures are sculpted by Joe Menna and will be offered in both a standard edition paint color and a black-and-white variant style. Each figure will also include four DC character sketch cards drawn by Ledbetter.

 

ACTION FIGURES/VINYL FIGURES

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.

HARLEY QUINN RED, WHITE & BLACK: HARLEY QUINN BY GUILLEM MARCH

designed by GUILLEM MARCH

sculpted by JONATHAN MATTHEWS

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. Yet with the detailed design and splashes of color, this figure remains unmistakably Harley.

Outfitted in a traditional school uniform—complete with argyle socks—and equipped with her trademark oversize mallet, this carefully crafted polyresin statue is limited to 5,000 pieces.

  • Figure measures 6.76″ tall

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

designed by SEAN MURPHY

sculpted by JONATHAN MATTHEWS

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.

  • Limited to 5,000 pieces
  • Figure measures 8.2″ tall

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
