New York Comic Con 2013 hasn’t even officially begun yet, but already companies are vying for a slice of the attention and publicity that the second-largest comic book convention in the United States can bring! Thus, even though their panel won’t be until Friday morning, DC Collectibles has already sent out photos unveiling some of their big reveals for the event–including an all-new series of DC Collectibles Justice League: War figures!
The “Justice League: War” animated film will be bringing the DC Comics New 52 designs to screens in an animated (yet slightly different) form, and DC Collectibles will be capturing some of the most important characters from the movie as 6″ action figures next year!
- Wonder Woman
- The Flash
- Green Lantern
Four of those five choices are a quartet of some of the most integral, popular superheroes in the entire DC Comics Universe. The fifth, Shazam, seems a bit out of place. Could the exclusion of Batman from this assortment be a hint that there will be a second series of Justice League War DC Collectibles figures…? Could be! We’ll have to wait and see.
The weakest figure in this series is probably the Justice League: War Superman figure, unfortunately. Superman’s body looks okay, but I feel like his head sculpt looks a lot sillier than those of the other Justice League War figures. It almost looks like Superman has the head of a kid from some web comic! I’m really not a fan, but if that’s how Superman is depicted throughout the Justice League: War movie, I’ll learn to cope with it.
DC Collectibles will officially be showing off these figures at the NYCC 2013 DC Collectibles panel, which will take place Friday morning, October 11th at the 2013 New York Comic Con. We should get the official release date and other details about these (and perhaps further!) Justice League: War 6″ action figures at the official panel on Friday. I’ll post an update once the 2013 NYCC concludes.
