Holiday Guide to Comic Action Figures and Gifts
Comic book heroes have exploded further into the mainstream in 2011 with more movies and collectables than ever. Yet, as the genre's history has shown, one of the most celebrated ways of collecting superhero wares (aside from comics themselves) are their action figure likenesses. Perfect for the holiday season that is upon us, here are a few of the newest and hottest action figures and gifts currently on the market. Arkham City is still fresh in the game systems of Batman enthusiasts around the world and DC Comics has just released a new series of figures to celebrate the game. With a line that includes a buff, unmasked Batman figure, the sexy and neurotic Harley Quinn and a bo-staff sporting Robin, DC is unleashing the figures upon the comic community on December 21. Hovering around six and half inches tall, these collectables reflect the dark feel of the video game with mostly sharp black coloring and some deep red hues.
2011 was a banner year for the Green Lantern franchise as it spawned not only two roller coaster rides at Six Flags Parks featuring the comic's name, but also the multi-million dollar blockbuster film based on the comic book. Already on their fifth series of Green Lantern figurines, DC Comics has created four more action figures based on characters for the classic comic including Guy Gardner, Sinestro, Soranik Natu and Brother Warth. Let these Lanterns police your action figure collection like they do the universe and prove the competition is futile.
While that other comic supergroup might be coming to theatres sooner, DC's Justice League will have it's day soon enough as the film project may come to fruition as soon as 2015. The news alone of a potential movie has League fans clamoring for anything Superman, Aquaman or Wonder Woman. For your favorite comic book lover this holiday season, the perfect place to start is the latest line of Justice Leagure figures, which features The Joker, Poison Ivy, Batman, Wonder Woman and more. Sculpted in a stunning fashion, the figurines of Justice League: Series 3 are immense and ready to impress.
