AFJ TOY FAIR '17 DC COLLECTIBLES!
By Jarrett Kruse
AFJ got lucky this year when we got DC COLLECTIBLES Vice President Kevin Kiniry to give us the grand tour of their booth. To say he was enthusiastic is an understatement and by the time it was all over, we were all making mental checklists on which items we want to add to our personal collections in 2017. The thought, design & craftsmanship far outweighs the mass-market DC product available for hardcore Junkies and DCC continues to separate themselves from the pack with unbelievably high quality as the industry leader for the home of a plethora of household name characters.
It's not even just the figures but the statues, prop replicas, maquettes & playsets are flat out works of art. With two super-high profile movies hitting the silver screen this year (WONDER WOMAN & JUSTICE LEAGUE), DC COLLECTIBLES is betting big on their classic stable of characters. Their is an especially big push for Wonder Woman this year, not just because of the movie but because it is the Amazonian Princesses 75th birthday. A standout for me was the gorgeous looking DC BOMBSHELLS line that are an epic throwback to World War II iconography and "Rosie the Riveter" style posters from the 40's. Oh, and Junkies will finally be able to get their mitts on the best *working* Bat Signal ever this year. Start putting some cash aside for some DC COLLECTIBLES this year because their 2017 lineup is more impressive than Wayne Manor.
