Based on the current Rebirth designs of Jason Fabok and sculpted by Paul Harding, all four of these DC Essentials figures come highly detailed and with 21-points of articulation.

Even before the start of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night, DC Collectibles released a startling amount of information regarding their upcoming statue and figure lines. So, when it came around to the next day’s DC Collectibles panel attended by moderator Paul Malmont, Art Director Travis Hastback, artist Joe Ledbetter, artist Chrissie Zullo, Executive Creative Director Jim Fletcher, Special Makeup Effects Artist Rick Baker, and sculptor Paul Harding, much of the information they discussed was more of a reiteration from the day prior.
Unable to wait for the start of San Diego Comic-Con, DC Collectibles has just announced new additions to their ever-growing library of figurines and statues. Headlining this news are three statues to be released based off the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures’ Aquaman film. Each one will be based off the actors’ portrayal of the comic book characters; Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Amber Heard’s Mera, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta. Each will be done in great detail and stand at 12” tall. They are expected to hit store shelves November 2018, a month before the movie’s December 21st release date.

Each figure, save for the Comic-Con exclusives, will retail for $40. Entertain Earth’s Classic Variant will go for $60, their Flashpoint Variant for $75, and their Black and Gold Variant for $100. DC Collectibles was gracious enough to send us the Hot Topic exclusive Zombie Variants.
