New DC #Vinimates from @CollectDST Hit Comic Shops, More on the Way!
February 8, 2018

The DC Vinimates line is expanding rapidly, with new waves based on comics, video games and the CW TV shows on the way! Two new assortments hit this week and next, a new series goes up for pre-order later this month, and the first DC two-pack is slated for this spring, so we thought we’d run down what’s coming for this up-and-coming vinyl figure series!

This week, DC Vinimates Arkham Asylum Series 1 hits comic shops, featuring Armored Batman, The Joker and Harley Quinn. Sculpted in a block-figure style with authentic game styling, each 4-inch figure comes in a full-color window box featuring Arkham Asylum graphics.

Next week, Comic Book Series 2 arrives, including a classic Superman, a caped Wonder Woman, and a Joker straight out of “The Killing Joke.” The figures will be available at comic shops and Toys”R”Us.

Toys”R”Us will also get an exclusive Vinimate of Nibor, the anti-Robin from Teen Titans Go! Sculpted and deco’ed in the exaggerated show style, Nibor joins the already-released Blackfire and Retro Starfire at Toys”R”Us. More Teen Titans Go Vinimates are coming exclusively to the retail chain, so keep an ear out for news!

DC Vinimates Comic Series 3 is up for pre-order now, featuring a classic Batman, Catwoman and Batwoman, with an expected ship date of Summer 2018.

DC Vinimates Injustice Series 1 will ship in the summer, as well, with game-specific versions of Batman, Black Manta and Harley Quinn.

Then, on Free Comic Book Day, which happens on May 5, 2018, participating stores will get in the DC Vinimates Comic Book Nightwing and Batgirl 2-Pack. Preorder it through your nearest participating comic shop, which you can find at freecomicbookday.com!

And of course, look for the DC Minimates already on the market: DC Comics Series 1 (Batman, Green Lantern, Harley Quinn and the Walgreens-exclusive Black Lantern), Justice League Movie Series 1 and 2 (with the Walgreens-exclusive Battle-Damaged Batman), The Flash TV Series 1, Watchmen Movie Series 1 and 2, and two Vinimates from the Wonder Woman movie!

 

For all non-exclusive Vinimates, you can order through your local comic shop or a variety of online retailers, including shop.diamondselecttoys.com!

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, 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.
