I Wish I Could Wear This Wee Arkham Asylum Batman Cowl

I Wish I Could Wear This Wee Arkham Asylum Batman Cowl

When I heard that DC Collectibles was making a replica of the distinctive cowl the Dark Knight wore during Rocksteady’s Arkham Asylum video game, I imagined skulking about my house as a masked vigilante, striking fear into children and cats alike. The final product is lovely, but not the wearable cowl I’d imagined.

The Batman: Arkham Asylum replica cowl, which goes on sale this month for $90...

Strange Mecha Batman Statue Totally Works

Strange Mecha Batman Statue Totally Works

Over the decades, many artists have given us their special take on DC’s iconic vigilante. Korean comic artist Kim Jung Gi’s offbeat mech Batman is one of the most unique.

Designed for DC Collectible’s Batman: Black and White statue collection, Kim Jung Gi’s Batman seems completely bonkers at first. Robot Batman?

Along with new Batman and Zatana statues and a pair of Teen Titan-ic plushes, DC Collectibles coolest upcoming release is the Batman Animated GCPD Rogues Gallery five-pack, which demonstrates how screwed Gotham’s police force would be without Batman. Ignore the turtle.

Batman V Superman: When Good Toys Come From Bad Movies

<i>Batman V Superman:</i> When Good Toys Come From Bad Movies

Can you hate a movie but love its characters, or does a bad cinematic experience poison you against them? Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a massive disappointment for me, but damn if I don’t adore DC Films’ Superman and Armored Batman figures.

It must be tough to sell $50 premium figures based on a film that the core audience largely hated. The basic figures you can pick up for cheap at...

DC Comics Bombshells Action Figures Are Mostly Great 

DC Comics Bombshells Action Figures Are Mostly Great 

Artist Ant Lucia’s 1940's re-imagining of popular female heroes and villains has become one of DC Comics’ hottest properties, spawning a line of gorgeous statues, a comic book series, clothing, mugs and more. The only thing missing was poseable action figures. Consider that box checked.

I love the Bombshells line. Its mix of World War II pin-up style and modern rockabilly has produced some...
