MORE DC SUPER HEROES JOIN DC COLLECTIBLES’ HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED DC ARTISTS ALLEY LINE IN DECEMBER 2018
May 3, 2018

New Designer Vinyl Figures Include Chris Uminga’s Re-Imagining of The Flash, HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque’s Contemporary Design of Nightwing and Sho Murase’s Stunning Take on Batgirl

 

With just a month away from the hotly-anticipated debut of DC Artists Alley, DC Collectibles today announced three new iconic DC Super Heroes – The Flash, Nightwing and Batgirl – will join the cutting-edge designer vinyl line in December 2018. Each character will be designed by a different 2018 DC Artists Alley designer including Connecticut-based painter and illustrator, Chris Uminga; comic creator and graphic designer, HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque; and San Francisco-based artist, Sho Murase.

 

“The DC Artists Alley line marks our entry into the designer toy market, and we couldn’t be happier with the fan and retailer reception we’ve received thus far,” stated Jim Fletcher, executive creative director of DC Collectibles. “The first wave has nearly sold out at the retailer level, and the figures haven’t even hit stores yet. We’re doubling down on this excitement by adding three new characters to the 2018 lineup.”

 

DC Artists Alley is an artist-focused designer vinyl line and is inspired by the popular “Artist Alley” convention experience. The new figures announced today include Uminga’s signature “creepy and cute” design of the fastest man alive, The Flash; Nooligan’s “streetwear” makeover of DC’s popular Nightwing character; and Murase’s exaggerated take on Batgirl in a striking palette of red, white and black. DC Collectibles will offer black and white variant editions of The Flash and Nightwing figures, and a vibrant green holiday variant for Murase’s Batgirl design.

 

Prior to the new figures’ debut in December, the DC Artist Alley line will launch in June with Uminga’s designs of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman; followed by Nooligan’s unique interpretations of The Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn in September; and Murase’s transformations of Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn in November.

 

All June, September and November waves are available for pre-order now and the newly announced The Flash, Nightwing and Batgirl figures will be available for pre-order beginning May 22, 2018.

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.
