Toy Fair 2019: McFarlane Enters the DC Universe

Toy Fair 2019 McFarlane takes on DC Comics action figures
BEST NEWS OF TOY FAIR 2019 SO FAR!!! While Mattel cranked out a very wide range of DC comic book characters in their time with the license, we can all admit they weren't much fun. Use of the same molds over and over paired with minimal paint applications and dull sculpting just gives a collector fatigue after a time. Now...when someone like McFarlane comes into play...
We know what they are capable with sculpting true works of art. We know they are willing to use as much paint as is possible. Having upped their game in the articulation department, we have high hopes for posability. I'll also point out they are not shying away from making vehicles and accessory packs for their figures so I AM SO DAMN READY!!

My first request: Batman vs Spawn boxed set. pleaseopleaseopleaseoplease

Batman, Superman and the entire roster of DC’s iconic characters have a new place to hang up their capes and cowls. McFarlane Toys, an award-winning toy company, announced today they have entered into a three-year global licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC, to release DC Multiverse collector figures in both mass and specialty retail spaces. Beginning early 2020, McFarlane Toys will bring dozens of the iconic DC comic books, video games and feature films’ near-endless stable of characters to life with 6” – 12” ultra-posable action figures, corresponding accessories and vehicles branded DC Multiverse.

 “This partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC will be great fun for my company, and a chance to deliver products that millions of fans of the DC brand have been asking for,” said Todd McFarlane, Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “The DC universe has captivated the world and to be able to play in that ‘sandbox’ now makes me feel like a kid all over again. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together.”

The DC Multiverse collector figures and related toys will be available at major retail locations beginning in 2020.
