Val’s Toy Chest- DC Collectibles and Star Wars Black

DC Collectibles has been subject to a number of delays this year, but it looks like they’re starting to catch up with their release schedule again. This week sees a number of new releases from DC including more figures in the Darwyn Cooke Designer Series and a couple of ICONs figures.

The Darwyn Cooke Designer Series adds four new characters to the lineup including Catwoman, The Flash, John Stewart Green Lantern and Wonder Woman. Each features several points of articulation and some may come with character specific accessories. The DC Icons series continues with the addition of Firestorm and with his second figure this week, John Stewart. Each character is based on a specific storyline and comes with multiple accessories.

As I noted at the end of last week’s column, the Star Wars Black Series featuring characters from Rogue One as well as select The Force Awakens characters has arrived. They can’t go on sale til Friday the 30th, but I am pleased that we will have them for your shopping pleasure.

Speaking of the Force Awakens, the Hot Toys Rey finally arrived as well as the Rey/BB-8 Two pack.  I haven’t seen the BB-8 yet, but I can tell you that the Rey figure is gorgeous and would be a highlight of any Star Wars collection.

Other new and recent toys:

Mezco’s One: 12 series continues with the release of Captain Kirk from Star Trek. Outfitted in a cloth outfit and packed with interchangeable hands and multiple accessories, the captain of the Enterprise would make an awesome addition to anyone’s collection.

Also from Mezco- a 15 inch talking Chucky from Child’s Play 2, just in time for Halloween as well as a roto figure of everyone’s favorite ghost with the most, Beetlejuice!

New POP vinyls include Ariel, Belle, and Tiana as well as Tulip from AMC’s Preacher.

That’s it for me this week. Catch you next time!
