DCC's Bombshells Batwoman takes the whole 'bat' thing in a different direction photo

Like a bad cartoon pun, DC Collectibles' upcoming DC Comics Bombshells Batwoman re-envisions Kathy Kane as either a baseball player or a bat-wielding vigilante. The figure was recently featured as part of a Bombshells promotional video.

While I like the statue (far more than I thought I would), I don't get why they went with this bland angle instead of doing something closer to the concept art. Is her head not swung around enough for that? All things considered, however, I'd say that DCC hit this one out of the park.

For those wanting to cover their bases, retailers have already begun pitching pre-orders. You can pick this one up from Entertainment Earth for US$100 and get free shipping on your order.

Hold that rocket! Roxy Rocket leads DCC's latest solicits photo
Hold that rocket! Roxy Rocket leads DCC's latest solicits
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has released its latest batch of solicits and headlining the selection is none other than a B:TAS Roxy Rocket.

Batman: The Animated Series and DC Animated Universe fans will recall that Roxy Rocket was a character created exclusively for The New Batman Adventures who enjoyed a little popularity despite only appearing in one Batman episode ("The Ultimate Thrill") and one Superman: The Animated Series episode ("Knight Time", where Superman is forced to impersonate Batman to cover for his disappearance). Roxy, of course, will always have fans (although nowhere near as many fellow B:TAS creation Harley Quinn) and her figure -- which comes with her iconic rocket -- marks the line's first B:TAS deluxe release. The downside? Her US$40 price tag, which makes the rocket (which adds US$15 to the MSRP) one expensive accessory.

Other highlights include Jae Lee's DC Designer Series 1 (Catwoman, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman), a Catwoman bust, a DC Comics Icons Green Lantern statue, a Gotham City Police Department badge (based on its appearance in the Gotham tv show), the DC Bombshells "newspaper boy" Lois Lane, and a Batman: Black & White Batgirl.

Most of these are due out in August and many should be available for pre-order right now. Be sure to check out the gallery for images.

We all scream for Scarecrow! DCC unveils animated series Scarecrow photo
We all scream for Scarecrow! DCC unveils animated series Scarecrow
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles has officially unveiled the latest entry in its latest Batman: The Animated Series line: Scarecrow!

Based on his scarier appearance in the 1997 The New Batman Adventures cartoon (the in-continuity follow-up to Batman:TAS), this version of Scarecrow was a marked departure from his more "cartoonish" previous incarnations. While DC Collectibles has done a great job capturing the rough look of the character, I can't help but feel that they fell a little short on the face. Part of the issue might be that the character was heavily shaded throughout the episode, "Never Fear" (the Scarecrow's only solo appearance in the 1997 series). In fact, that's probably why the character doesn't look dark enough.

That said, it's awesome that DC Collectibles has decided to give us a 1997-series Scarecrow. While it doesn't appear that he comes with his walking stick, I'm holding out hope that DCC will give us an alternate hand and the weapon.

Right now Scarecrow is slated for a late 2015 release as part of wave 5. And, in other news, the Ventriloquist is doing surprisingly well in DCC's fan poll. See a full image of Scarecrow (and those poll results) in the gallery.

Tomopop Review: ArtFX+ Arkham City Batman photo
Tomopop Review: ArtFX+ Arkham City Batman
by Kristina Pino

Kotobukiya released this 1/10-scale Batman based on his appearance in the very fun Batman: Arkham City game back in late August, so this is by no means a brand-spankin'-new figure. But it's new to me and I want to share my review.

You'd be crazy to miss these SH Figuarts Harley Quinn photos photo
You'd be crazy to miss these SH Figuarts Harley Quinn photos

New photos of Bandai's S.H. Figuarts Harley Quinn (Injustice ver.) have appeared, courtesy of a listing on the Tamashii web store. The figure depicts the Joker's fangirl/love interest as she appeared in Injustice: Gods Among Us (ps3/360).

Harley Quinn is the third SHF that we've seen from this game, following Batman and Joker, and is by far my favorite. While part of that might be owed to the character design itself, I'm also impressed by Bandai's workmanship and really did two of the optional faces (and two outta three ain't bad!).

SHF Harley Quinn looks to come with her mallet, two handguns, a card, a total of three interchangeable faces (standard, smiling, and... grimacing?), and three alternate sets of hands. Although the character has a knife strapped to her calf (and several more at her hip), it's not listed as being removable despite looking as such.

In other news (on a personal note), I *finally* picked up Injustice: Gods Among Us (Ultimate Edition) and am looking forward to playing that whenever it arrives.

DCC's Scribblenauts Unmasked series 4 possibly at a retailer near you photo
DCC's Scribblenauts Unmasked series 4 possibly at a retailer near you
by Scarecroodle

Series 4 of DC Collectibles' Scribblenauts Unmasked blind-boxed series is showing up at retail (or, at least, has just started to show at Gamestops). The wave, which has undergone a few changes at this point (unless Swamp thing and others are comic store only), now consists of a power suited Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Beast Boy, Constantine, Mercury, another version of Batman, and a gold version of Cyborg, as well as the hidden rare Batman Beyond and Maxwell as Superman.

My own pulls started disappointing. After realizing that Series 4 was in AND that Series 1 was on clearance, I didn't put much thought or effort into the two S4 boxes I bought. The result? Two Catwomen. It marked the first time I had a duplicate from this blind-boxed series. I wound up going back the next day and tried to determine which one had the Lex Luthor by its relative weight, a process that worked better than that time I accidentally got Maxwell as Starro when trying for Bane. The Lex Luthor is the largest figure that DCC has released in the line thus far although it's slightly shorter than Maxwell as Starro.

While it's an okay line-up (not as good as I thought it'd be), I imagine that I may just wait and see whether the later series will wind up marked down to half off as well instead of picking up additional boxes.

Has anybody else tried their luck?

Rev up your Harley for DCC's latest solicits photo
Rev up your Harley for DCC's latest solicits
by Scarecroodle

DC Collectibles' latest batch of solicits features two new Harley Quinns, a John Stewart action figure, the New-52 Poison Ivy, a Sandman chess set, and more, which are due out in July.

The attention-grabbers here are probably the DC Cover Girls Harley Quinn (pre-order here) which features the Joker's side-kick/love interest in her classic costume. The pose is a little odd, but it's a neat design. Also up for pre-order is a more contemporary Harley Quinn action figure which features the New 52 incarnation in a roller derby outfit. It's certainly less provocative than some of the outfits they've stuck her in over the years.

Of course, my favorite item out of the bunch might be the Sandman chess set... which has a whopping US$300 price tag. Oh well, it's not like I play chess anyway.

Most of these items are currently available for pre-order at the usual places. Be sure to check out a few of the collectibles in the gallery.
