More DC Heroes Join DC Collectibles' DC Artists Alley Line
May 03, 2018
With just a month away from the hotly-anticipated debut of DC Artists Alley, DC Collectibles today announced three new iconic DC Super Heroes – The Flash, Nightwing and Batgirl - will join the cutting-edge designer vinyl line in December 2018. Each character will be designed by a different 2018 DC Artists Alley designer including Connecticut-based painter and illustrator, Chris Uminga; comic creator and graphic designer, HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque; and San Francisco-based artist, Sho Murase.
“The DC Artists Alley line marks our entry into the designer toy market, and we couldn’t be happier with the fan and retailer reception we’ve received thus far,” stated Jim Fletcher, executive creative director of DC Collectibles. “The first wave has nearly sold out at the retailer level, and the figures haven’t even hit stores yet. We’re doubling down on this excitement by adding three new characters to the 2018 lineup.”
DC Artists Alley is an artist-focused designer vinyl line and is inspired by the popular “Artist Alley” convention experience. The new figures announced today include Uminga’s signature “creepy and cute” design of the fastest man alive, The Flash; Nooligan’s “streetwear” makeover of DC’s popular Nightwing character; and Murase’s exaggerated take on Batgirl in a striking palette of red, white and black. DC Collectibles will offer black and white variant editions of The Flash and Nightwing figures, and a vibrant green holiday variant for Murase’s Batgirl design.
Prior to the new figures’ debut in December, the DC Artist Alley line will launch in June with Uminga’s designs of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman; followed by Nooligan’s unique interpretations of The Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn in September; and Murase’s transformations of Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn in November.
All June, September and November waves are available for pre-order now and the newly announced The Flash, Nightwing and Batgirl figures will be available for pre-order beginning May 22, 2018.
