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.

I'm looking forward to getting a few of these figures in hand despite the mixed reviews I've seen on YouTube. I've pre-ordered the Batman Who Laughs, Hellbat, Unchained Armor Superman and the Bat-raptorfrom Amazon and probably will get them over the weekend or next week.

I'm really disappointed, but my wallet feels fine. I'll wait for the line to get better with time before I buy any figure.

I'm also gonna play the waiting game with this line, I'll wait for them to get a more functional articulation and more classic looks.

My, so far I've only seen the review of btas Batman, the batman who laughs and batgirl figure reviews and so far only 2 of these figures definitely caught my eye, the only one that didn't was the btas Batman since there was something off about this figure and it's not scale (actually i love the 7" scale) but just the proportion of it.

So yes so far I'm more interested on the batman who laughs and Batgirl which i got super excited to know this is a good figure with minor gripes for my point of view, still not intrigued over the Batmobile baf tho, i will wait for a Nightwing figure review to see if I'll also want to get it or not... Oh god I'm just happy right now I do plan to get that Batgirl figure somehow (sorry for my fanboy attitude towards her lol)
