Pre-Toy Fair 2015: DC Collectibles Reveal DC Icons

DC Collectibles revealed a few days early their brand new DC Comics action figure series, DC Icons! With the Convergence storyline hitting this spring, DCC has taken the step to make new figures based on some iconic looks in DC Comics history. They gave USA Today the scoop.

“Our new ‘Icons’ action figure line will be a new core universe of heroes and villains led creatively by the great Ivan Reis,” says DC chief creative officer and Justice League writer Geoff Johns.

“Being part of this project is a great honor,” adds Reis, whose designs were used to craft the figures. “Knowing the ‘Icons’ action figures will be based on my art adds a new level of inspiration to my work. I was also thrilled to learn this series will feature many classic versions of the characters that were part of my childhood.”
