McFarlane Toys Gets DC Collector Figure License
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:23 PM »
Looks like McFarlane will be picking up the DC Multiverse 6" figure license starting in 2020.  Should have some prototype type figures ready for Toy Fair.

Just read this today as well, interesting. I see McFarlane also got the license for Harry Potter/Wizarding World figures, so they are really making a splash here, pre Toy Fair. I think it will really be an interesting time in the action figure arena. More and more focus on 6" stuff, as well as a fairly clear line between "kids stuff" and collectibles. Really curious what we will see for Star Wars.

Mattel reminds me of an NFL Team shedding bloated contracts to prep for a huge Free Agent splash.  ;)

Prediction: McFarlane will do a nice line of DC figures, inexplicably skipping over some obvious choices, and then abruptly change scales just to p*ss everyone off.

I really don't care for their stuff.  More statue than figure and the faces always look creepy to me.

Huge mistake not having anything to show for this line at SDCC, Todd.

So they didn't show anything for this license either? That is disappointing. Hopefully something pops up later. Did they at least show something from Harry Potter?

Yes, they did have Harry on display, not sure about any others but he was definitely out.

Been seeing, well, some of these in stores. Mainly just the Batman TAS figure and Harley Quinn. Not really a fan of the line, specifically the 7 inch scale
