McFarlane Toys and DC Team Up to Create Collector Figures Starting in 2020

It’s been a very busy news week for toys, and just when I think it will calm down for a few hours, the hits just keep on coming. Earlier today, McFarlane Toys revealed another new license they are adding under their rapidly expanding umbrella – DC Comics.

Whoever would have said to me that Todd McFarlane, father of Spawn and head honcho at Image Comics, would be making DC comics action figures would be ridiculed on sight. Yet, here we are today, and I think the temperature in Hell may have just became a bit chilly.

Here is the info from the official press release:

Batman, Superman and the entire roster of DC’s iconic characters have a new place to hang up their capes and cowls. McFarlane Toys, an award-winning toy company, announced today they have entered into a three-year global licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC, to release DC Multiverse collector figures in both mass and specialty retail spaces. Beginning early 2020, McFarlane Toys will bring dozens of the iconic DC comic books, video games and feature films’ near-endless stable of characters to life with 6” – 12” ultra-posable action figures, corresponding accessories and vehicles branded DC Multiverse.

 “This partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC will be great fun for my company, and a chance to deliver products that millions of fans of the DC brand have been asking for,” said Todd McFarlane, Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “The DC universe has captivated the world and to be able to play in that ‘sandbox’ now makes me feel like a kid all over again. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.” 

The DC Multiverse collector figures and related toys will be available at major retail locations beginning in 2020.

It was announced earlier this year that DC would be ending their partnership with Mattel, who has been producing their toys for years. As of now, Spinmasters has also picked up the figure license along with McFarlane, and we will have to wait until Toy Fair next year to see what both of them do with it.

This new is hot off the heels of McFarlane Toys announcing they will be doing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as well as My Hero Academia.

There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Hasbro teasing us with a first glimpse of their new Overwatch figures, Diamond Select purchasing Gentle GiantHasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figures,  Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figureMego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

Stay tuned this weekend as our exclusive NY Toy Fair 2019 coverage begins on Saturday!

KFC and DC Entertainment announced today the third installment of the popular Colonel Sanders and Justice League team-up comic book series will be available in print exclusively in DC’s booth (#1915) at San Diego Comic-Con: International, July 19-23, 2017. Created by DC’s Custom Creative Studio, the finger-lickin’-good comic will also be available for digital download for a limited time starting on July 19.

In KFC #3 ACROSS THE UNIVERSE the Colonel goes cosmic in a star-spanning quest to bring crunchy, spicy satisfaction to a hungry universe, only to face a “thieving varmint” who steals his space-bound Zinger chicken sandwiches. Who else but DC’s Green Lantern can help the Colonel scan the universe to catch the thief?! KFC #3’s creative team includes writer Tony Bedard, penciler Tom Derenick, inkers Trevor Scott and Sean Parsons, with a cover by Tom Grummett and Trevor Scott.

“It’s been an honor, a privilege, and just plain FUN working on the last two KFC comics,” stated writer Tony Bedard. “I’m super-excited the story is a trilogy now, with the Colonel planet-hopping across the DC Universe. As a former GREEN LANTERN writer, it’s great to revisit Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. I’ve written many comics over the years, but the response to teaming up the Colonel with DC Super Heroes has been a phenomenon all its own.”

“As the largest pop culture event in the world, San Diego Comic-Con is the perfect place to unveil our third comic book with DC,” said Steve Kelly, KFC U.S. director of media and digital. “Fans of the Zinger who have been following Colonel Sanders’ quest to make it the most popular chicken sandwich in the universe will finally learn what’s next for the space sandwich in this latest DC comic.”

KFC first partnered with DC’s Custom Creative Studio in 2015 for the release of the critically-acclaimed KFC #1 THE COLONEL OF TWO WORLDS, which was followed by KFC #2 COLONEL CORP in 2016.

Finally, in our last video, we spotlight all of the new offerings from the “Batman: The Animated Series” line, which includes a new version of the Batmobile, Christmas Joker, Harley Quinn, a five-pack with the ladies of DC animated (Livewire, Batgirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy), The Demon, Ras Al Ghul and his daughter Talia Ghul, the Ventriloquist, Batman Beyond, Frank Miller style Batman, Carrie Kelly Robin and Mutant Leader, Harvey Bullock, and more.

New York Toy Fair 2013: “DC Direct” unveils toys from “Injustice” and new “Superman” movie

“DC Direct” always has one of the best booths at NY Toy Fair, and this year was no exception. The company unveiled many new figures and statues from various DC licenses, from comics to games to movies.

The hot item out of DC Direct this year was their new statues from the upcoming Zac Snyder “Superman” movie, which featured amazingly realistic statues of Superman, Jor-El, Ursa, and General Zod. Photos do not do the likenesses justice, but I hope it gives you enough of an idea to get your expectations high when they are released. Speaking of justice, DC Direct also brought out their new figures from the video game, “Injustice”. The figures will come in two-packs and will be fully articulated 3 3/4 inch figures so players can battle it out off-screen.

Plenty of new six inch figures were shown off, including a new elemental Swamp Thing, and characters based on some of the 52 series, as well as a bevy of variously colored lanterns that are magnetically activated with a ring you can wear to re-enact your favorite Green Lantern moment (or red lantern, or yellow lantern… etc). A few new Batman: Black & White statues were shown off, including my favorite based on the art by Rafael Grampa. The sculptor of this statue was there, so check out the gallery for a pic of him with his creation as well as tons of other photos from the DC Direct booth!
