I'm historically not the biggest fan of DC's Ame-Comi line, I've found most of the designs to be a little lackluster. So I was even more excited when some great new figures were presented at C2E2 earlier this year. DC is putting more of its weight behind the line, bringing in talent like Amanda Conner to give it a comic to back it up and hiring awesome sculptors like veteran James Shoop to bring us better designs, like this Brainiac. Ame-comi still has some evolving to do, but let's check out the progress, shall we?
Just before C2E2, DC sent out a press release announcing their name change from DC Direct to DC Collectibles. Despite the name not quite rolling off the tongue quite as well, a lot of excitement has been moving through the comics community due to the company expanding their figure offerings in their new online store. This made the panel at C2E2 a must-cover for us. Let's go over some of the highlights!
The New 52 line of Action Figures from DC Collectibles isn't new news, but the Parademon figure is. The Justice League villain wasn't the only news coming out of the DC Collectibles panel though.
