DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles –directly from the source, DC Entertainment–kicked off San Diego Comic-Con: International with several major announcements, including the expansion of its grittiest line of statues, Gotham City Garage. Racing onto shelves in 2018, the biker statues will be joined by an all-new 6.75’’ DC Essentials action figure line starring DC’s most popular Super Heroes and Super-Villains designed by fan-favorite comic book artist Jason Fabok.

DC Collectibles is doubling down on Gotham City Garage’s growing popularity and will reimagine two new Super Heroes–Batgirl and Supergirl–as bold, fierce, biker statues. The move coincides with DC’s announcement earlier this week that it will publish an all-new Digital First comic book in August inspired by the statue line.

“The idea behind Gotham City Garage is to explore the tough and gritty alter-egos of DC’s most iconic characters such as Wonder Woman and Catwoman, and now Batgirl and Supergirl,” said Jim Fletcher, executive creative director, DC Collectibles. “Just like with DC Bombshells, it’s exciting to see these character designs strike a chord with fans and transcend from statues into comic books and beyond, and we’re eager to find out just how far Gotham City Garage can ride.”

DC Essentials will be an evergreen action figure line and will feature classic representations of DC Universe characters including Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman, among others,” said Fletcher. “These designs will embody the core of each character and will attract both our most dedicated fans and those just starting out with their collections. We’re thrilled to deliver these figures at the larger 6.75 scale and can’t wait for fans to see the new moveability that allows for more intricate poses. We’re excited to have Jason Fabok on board as the series’ designer–his stunning art style is a perfect match for DC Essentials. ”
