DC Collectibles has announced several new items ahead of New York Toy Fair. Coming throughout 2019 will be a wide variety of collectibles and just fun figures in general. Possibly the most unique among these is a new line called DC ¡Lucha Explosiva!. DC described the line as:
DC ¡LUCHA EXPLOSIVA! is a thrilling and imaginative new universe that blends the action-packed world of Lucha Libre with iconic DC characters. Each 7″ action figure is a Latin American-inspired reimagining of a popular DC Super Hero or Super-Villain, complete with a unique character backstory rooted in Mexico’s rich cultural history. Fans can create epic storylines while battling with the first wave of figures inspired by Batman, Deathstroke, Superman, Metallo II, Wonder Woman and the Cheetah beginning in August 2019.
Not to be outdone by wrestler versions of your favorite superheroes, DC Collectibles also announced two other new lines coming this year. The first being a new premium line of figures called DC Prime and the other a new line of statues called DC Engines of Chaos. Here are the descriptions and first look for each line.
DC PRIME is a new premium-grade 9″ action figure line brought to life by popular artist Riccardo Federici and celebrated sculptor Wonil Song. Each highly detailed figure features unmatched poseability and numerous custom accessories. Batman is the first character to debut in October 2019 and includes multiple pairs of hands, a wired fabric cape and three unique heads.
DC ENGINES OF CHAOS is a new statue line based on designs by renowned DC artist Riley Rossmo (BATMAN, MARTIAN MANHUNTER). Each statue is a high-RPM transformation of a beloved DC character uniquely adapted for a gritty, dystopian world. Some figures are adapted to battle, others to survival. This new line will race into stores in November 2019 with its first statue featuring the Dark Knight riding atop a custom bike, complete with armored wheels, a Bat-shaped grille and a Joker-bot.
