DC Prime Toy Fair 2019 | DC Collectibles Interview
For our network’s DC Collecticast podcast, your host, Benjamin David, had the BEYOND nerdy privilege of attending New York Toy Fair 2019 as official press. Now writing for C506.net, Benjamin’s press access got us an exclusive interview with Brian Walters, Senior Art Director of DC Collectibles.
From the moment the pre-Toy Fair reveals dropped online, DC Collectibles stopped me in my internet tracks with photos of their new “DC Prime” line of deluxe action figures.
Seeing Batman Prime in person had a big impact, and really got me pumped for what’s in store for the line.
From DC Collectibles’ Brian Walters at the NY Toy Fair booth:
This is a brand new action figure line for us. This is DC Prime Deluxe Batman action figure. We’re really excited about this figure, because we haven’t really gone into the world of deluxe action figures that are at a larger scale like 9.” A lot of great detail, designed by Ricardo Federici, so you get this high tech take on Batman.
BW continued: It’ll have a ton of articulation. As I said, lots of great accessories, including alternate heads, grappling guns, batarangs, interchangeable hands. It also has a posable cape, which is great, so you’ll be able to capture all the motion that you want.
This is not the final stand for it. We’re still working on the final design, but we want a stand that’s going to be able to allow you to get your figure up in the air; very much like our deluxe bases down below, just something more robust to allow a 9″ figure to stay airborne if we need to.
BW continued: Higher price point, $125. It comes out at the end of 2019. We think a lot of characters will fit very well in this line, so stay tuned for more info. We’re really excited about it!
