It's easy to get lost in the sea of companies offering statues, figures and other collectibles at San Diego Comic-Con, but it's awful hard to miss Kotobukiya's bright green banners wherever it sets up. With a display full of statues, the company's SDCC 2015 showings introduced new items a range of sizes and from a variety of licenses.

The Flash proved a speedy breakout from its CW and Arrow origins, but will Season 2 keep the same pace? We’re on hand with the cast and crew from Comic-Con 2015, bringing out all the Flash Season 2 secrets from the Warner Bros. Superhero Saturday panel, including new villains, castings and more!
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has Arrow and Flash fans up in arms over what to expect from the epic time-traveling DC crossover, but the Legends themselves are here to take the stage at Comic-Con 2015 to preview the new teamup series. Get a taste of DC TV’s past, present and future with our full Superhero Saturday coverage of Legends of Tomorrow!
Just as yesterday saw Arrow Season 4 making a handsome addition to its cast, so too has The Flash sped out a major new figure in advance of its Comic-Con 2015 presentation. Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears will play the classic Flash role of Jay Garrick, the appearance of which could well create a major Crisis for Barry Allen in Season 2.
The CW’s big Comic-Con panel doesn’t get started until tomorrow evening, but they’ve already gone ahead and released a super-sized trailer that manages to tease Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. While the film side of DC comics seemingly stumbles around in the dark, this trailer is so full of confidence that it feels ready to burst at any moment. Who would have thought three TV shows starring B-level superheroes could look this epic and engender so much love from geeks and norms alike?
DC Collectibles kicked off San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with a preview event highlighting many of the bigger figures and series we'll be seeing over the course of the next 12 months. From continued support for the Icons and TV series lines to new Designer Series figures and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice pieces, there's a little bit of something for everyone in DC Collectibles' plans.
As cool as it was to see many of the new items on hand, the stars of the show were the characters getting the Darwyn Cooke touch as part of his Designer wave. Cooke's long been a favorite of mine, and his New Frontier figures from way back when are still some of the most stylish in my collection. Now that he's adding new takes on Batman, Supergirl, Adam Strange and Harley Quinn, I couldn't be happier. Combined with the expansion of the Batman: The Animated Series line to more obscure characters, 2015 and 2016 are shaping up to be a good time for clean, simple designs.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow pulled quite a bit of focus from Arrow and The Flash’s shared universe, so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the animated Vixen series on CW Seed. Now, the network has announced who will voice the iconic animal-wielding hero, as well as what Arrow and Flash stars will drop in on Vixen for some shared continuity.
The CW’s epic Legends of Tomorrow hasn’t even gone before cameras yet, though the initial teaser presentation certainly gave us a taste of the out-there action. Now, a new piece of concept art puts Firestorm at the center of a huge battle, while new showrunner Phil Klemmer talks the spinoff’s complicated relationship with time travel.
Mondays will be for Supergirl come this October, while The Flash and Agents of SHIELD return to Tuesdays and Arrow is back on Wednesdays. With the CW confirming all of its fall premiere dates, we have a full calendar for the new and returning Marvel and DC super-shows on The CW, CBS and ABC this fall.
