Statue collectors and Batman fans have a lot to look forward to judging from DC Collectibles' solicitation information for new products on sale later this year. A couple of new statues from the enduringly popular Batman: Black & White line are on their way, not to mention a striking piece based on Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns and a holiday makeover of the best-selling Harley Quinn "bombshell" design. As for action figures, DC is offering a selection of Arkham Origins figures and more from its line of toys based on Batman: The Animated Series.
November is going to be a big month for Batman as far as DC Collectibles is concerned. It's fitting, given that this year is the Caped Crusader's 75th anniversary, but it's still worth noting that this may be DC Collectibles' Dark Knight-iest month ever with 16 of its 23 total solicitations representing the Bat family. That's not to say Bats casts too large a shadow over DC and Vertigo's other characters. November will also see the release of new Stargirl and Hawkman figures, a Superman: The Animated Series statue and an an iZombie statue based on Mike Allred's art that will make you wonder why the Vertigo comic-turned-CW TV series hasn't been come back from the dead yet. You can see all of the upcoming items from DCC, after the cut.

As much as I loved the Batman: The Animated Series figures that I had when I was a kid (shout out to Combat Belt Batman), the one thing that always bugged me about them was the lack of articulation. Even if you're really, really into seeing Batman just stiff-legged Yakuza kick the Joker, which I am, five joints do not make for a lot of fun times.
Now, though, my childhood dreams have once again come true with the new DC Collectibles line of B:TAS figures, which are rocking some awesome, DC Universe Classics-esque articulation and beautiful designs by Bruce Timm. Wave 1's Batman and Catwoman have already been announced, but today, we've got a look at the second wave, featuring Robin, The Joker and Poison Ivy, plus painted versions of wave 1's Mr. Freeze and Two-Face.

Statue collectors and Justice League Dark fans have a lot to look forward to judging from DC Collectibles' July solicitation information. A number of new statues from the "Icons," "Cover Girls," "Patina" and other lines are due out this September and October, along with New 52 action figures of Constantine and Zatanna. Those seeking something a little softer than metal, resin and plastic will also finally be able to get their hands on the DC Nation Deadman and Crow plush two-pack, which was initially slated for an earlier release but was pushed closer to Halloween.
