Will McFarlane Toys Be Showing Their New DC Comics Figures At SDCC???

Below is a press release about Todd McFarlane and his company McFarlane Toys plans for this years San Diego Comic Con Convention. While there some cool things listed on there, one of the things you won't see mentioned is DC Comics. It was announced back in February during the New York Toy Fair that starting in 2020 they would be launching a new collector-oriented line of aciton figures based on DC Comics, and many of us including myself had hoped we might get our first look at this new line during what is arguably the biggest comic convention in the world, SDCC.

We double checked with the folks at McFarlane Toys and they confirmed for us that unfortunately the earliest we might get our first look at what they have in store for the DC License is at New York Comic Con which takes place in October 3-6.

So while that is a little disappointing, as I said they still seem to have to pretty cool stuff to reveal later this month at SDCC, so keep reading for the full details.

That's a shame... I even remember seeing an interview where Todd McFarlane said he would have some stuff to show off at SDCC. Oh well. I can wait another three months if it means the figures are of higher quality.

I've been very impatient for San Diego that I keep checking the calendar. I want to know what will come in the future & DC is one of them. I never been able to find DC figures in my area so maybe McFarlane Toys can pop up more often.

Interesting side note. In addition to his autograph sessions at the Image booth McFarlane also has autograph sessions scheduled for the DC Booth. This instantly struck me as odd but then made me stop and speculate that maybe those DC sessions might have had something to do with the new DC figure line getting revealed. Now that that doesnt appear to be the case Im back to wondering.

McFarlane is a draw and he has done stuff (mostly covers) for DC so I am sure its just a way to bring people to the booth and since he has a relationship with WB/DC it makes sense. Despite what they are saying I wouldn't be super shocked if the slipped out some kind of concept art or digital rendering of a figure at some point during the con if for no other reason than for hype purposes, but they aren't going to have any actual product out on display until at least NYCC.

Im thinking he'll probably just talk about the plans but wont show any prototypes just yet (seeing as its still 6 months away from the licence running out on Mattel's end and Starting with McFarlane), Im thinking theyprobably wont show anything DC related till NYCC, most likely the first wave or some advanced prototypes and theyll show the carded figures from the first waveand more info on the line at Toyfair at the begining of next year.If they do end up showing some of their dc prototypes it would be big, hopefully with the DC licence we get some articulated Spawn figures as well.

Thinwheat - 2019-07-06 @ 3:45 am

It would be pretty cool if they just announced a new Spawn figureand showed a prototype of that off and said that they'd do the DC figures in a similar style and look. Then we'd get an idea of what to expect.

Speaking of Spawn, I'd really like a Mezco Spawn!

Outsiders - 2019-07-05 @ 10:49 pm

Besides DC, I wonder if McFarlane will be announcing or displaying any new Mortal Kombat figures besides Scorpion and Sub-Zero?
