It’s the week of 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, so you know there’s going to be a slew of new toy news bombarding the interwebs all this week. With that said, DC Collectibles has unveiled a ton of new action figures and statues due to come out next year. Among them are figures based on Greg Capullo’s art style in the current Batman run, and something I’m very much looking forward to: Arrow TV series action figures! That’s right, something fans have been wanting since the show first aired is now coming true. We’re getting a two-pack of Arrow and Deathstroke based on their looks from the TV series in a 6.75″ scale. And there’s lots more cool stuff coming your way from DC Collectibles.

To view these new products and DC Collectibles entire line of toys and collector items visit DC Entertainment’s booth #1915. DC Collectibles products are available in comic book shops everywhere and online at www.shopdccollectibles.com. Which items are you most looking forward to? I seriously can’t wait to get my hands on that TV Series Arrow and Deathstroke two-pack. And the Greg Capullo inspired Batman, Nightwing, and especially The Talon are excellent. It looks like DC Collectibles is really striving to add more articulation into their figures, as I can see an ab crunch and what looks to be ball jointed hips on several of the new figures. It looks like 2014 is going to be a good year for DC Collectibles!
