Toy Fair 2014: Kidrobot x DC Comics [Video]

On top of showing off a full array of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl toys, Kidrobot had a variety of toy designs — including for Labbits — based on DC Comics heroes and villains on display at Toy Fair 2014.
New 52 versions of Red Hood, Harley Quinn, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Batman, Black Canary, Superman, Swamp Thing, Joker, Deadman, Animal Man and Green Arrow made up the most prominent display of figures. Classic “Super Powers” packaging and versions of Green Arrow, Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Shazam! were on display, paying homage to Kenner’s massive 3.75″ action figure line from the 1980s as well.
Unlike the Kidrobot x Marvel line, these figures look to have new humanoid shapes rather than the more monkey-style Munny mold.
Also unlike Kidrobot’s Marvel collaboration, DC looks like it’s getting its own Labbits line, decorating and accessorizing the strange pig/rabbit-like hybrid with Batman, The Red Hood, Clark Kent/Superman, Cyborg, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and Bane in mind.
No word on when these figures might make it to retail, but physical prototypes and more information will probably surface by San Diego Comic-Con 2014.
