Burbank, Calif. – October 10, 2012 – DC Collectibles, the exclusive line of collector items from DC Entertainment, announced today it will reveal an extensive slate of new statues and action figures at New York Comic Con (Oct. 11-14). Big reveals include two entirely new, ongoing statue series, a new set of the bestselling Batman: Arkham City action figure line, and a new statue based on The CW show Arrow. The products will be unveiled during DC Collectibles official panel on Thursday, October 11 from 5:00 – 6:00pm ET in Room 1A06.
