DC Collectibles revealed several soon-to-be released and definite must-own items at the 2019 New York Toy Fair, including the new DC ¡Lucha Explosiva! line.
Every year the New York Toy Fair is the place to be to learn more about all of the releases coming from the biggest names in the industry, and it’s where you can find the slate of 2019 releases from DC Collectibles. This year DC Collectibles is proud to present the first wave of its brand new Lucha Explosiva collection featuring the collision of DC icons and the world of Lucha Libre.
In addition to new items in their existing lines, DC Collectibles debuted three new product lines: DC ¡Lucha Explosiva!, DC Engines of Chaos and DC Prime. Each collection features a fresh and fun take on classic DC characters from renowned artists.
Jim Fletcher, executive creative director at DC Collectibles, is thrilled at the prospect of offering a unique line of figures that celebrate the crossover appeal of superheroes and Luchadores:
DC ¡Lucha Explosiva! is a passion project for us. We’re all huge fans of Lucha Libre, and merging Mexican Luchadores with superheroes seemed like a perfect fit. Besides obvious similarities like masks, capes and secret identities, we also think there is a huge crossover between fan bases.
The DC ¡Lucha Explosiva! Action figures measure 7” and the first wave will include three pairs of heroes and corresponding villains: Batman and Deathstroke, Superman and Metallo II, and Wonder Woman and Cheetah. The first wave of figures is scheduled to launch in August 2019.
The first wave of DC Engines of Chaos features Poison Ivy and Batman as envisioned by Riley Rossmo’s designs for a chaotic and dystopian world. Ivy is riding a moped with flowers in the front basket while Batman rides his custom bike while fighting off Joker robots. The line debuts in November 2019.
DC Prime is a collection of 9” figures from artist Riccardo Federici and sculptor Wonil Song. The first figure to be released in October 2019 is Batman. This innovative figure features several interchangeable parts to give the Dark Knight different poses, and the wired fabric cape allows Batman to have that in-motion look.
Other releases include a 22” Wonder Woman replica shield and statues featuring Batman, Death, Harley Quinn and Huntress, along with many others:
DC Collectibles is well known for producing quality items that come in various price points so that everyone can afford to buy items for their collections.
These figures will all be available for pre-order and purchase through the Shop DC online store, Amazon and your local comic shop.
