New York Toy Fair: Cryptozoic Entertainment Brings DC Collectibles And Their Very Original Line

by Gary Catig

Cryptozoic Entertainment prides itself in creating distinct and creative products that any lover of pop culture would want. They are known for producing board games, trading cards, and collectables. Recently they have revealed the major lines of vinyl figures they will display at New York Toy Fair. Among the collections are toys based off DC Comics and their Bombshells comics and a new original series line, Cryptkins.

It is very fitting that Cryptozoic’s first original line would include figures based off of creatures like the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and the Chupacabra. Take a closer look at the different lines they will have on display.

Cryptkins: Cryptozoic’s first original series of vinyl figures are inspired by various creatures that have been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines for decades. These figures are each approximately 2.25-inches tall and include Nessie, Chupacabra, Cthulhu, and Bigfoot. There are 13 figures in all, with 2 of them being rare and 1 of them ultra-rare. Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, each one comes packaged in a collectible, blind-reveal miniature crate. The figures will be available in March at retailers everywhere. Cryptkins will also be available in digital form on Quidd, the fast-growing platform for digital goods on iOS and Android. The Cryptkins Channel, premiering in February, will feature static and animated trading cards, stickers, and 3D figures based on both the initial figures and future releases.

 

DC Bombshells:  Based on the highly popular DC Bombshells line of comics and collectibles that place female superheroes at the center of World War II, these 7-inch vinyl figures feature some of DC’s most popular female characters. Packaged in display-worthy window boxes, Series 2 includes Supergirl, Poison Ivy, and Batwoman. They were designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg. Series 2 can be purchased at retailers nationwide now. Cryptozoic plans to preview Series 3 for the first time at the show.

DC Lil Bombshells: Smaller in scale, each of these figures based on DC Bombshells measures approximately 2.75-inches tall. Series 2 presents new poses for Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman and eight characters that are new to the line: Supergirl, Batgirl, Lois Lane, Zatanna, Killer Frost, Huntress, Bumblebee, and Cheetah. There are also two rare “Noir” variants, bringing the total number of figures in the set to 12. Designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Sam Greenwell, each one comes in Cryptozoic’s signature, collectible blind-reveal tin. Series 2 is available for purchase at stores everywhere now. At Toy Fair, Cryptozoic plans to preview Series 3 for the first time anywhere.

The five figures in Wave 1 are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn, with each figure packaged inside a display-worthy window box. Designed by Mark Doublin and sculpted by Stephan Ehl, the figures are stackable, allowing collectors to create impressive displays. Wave 1 is available at retailers nationwide now. Cryptozoic will offer a first peek at Wave 2 of DC Teekeez figures at Toy Fair.

 

DC Pumps: These vinyl figures of miniature high-heeled shoes inspired by the costumes, props, and personalities of DC’s favorite female Super Heroes and Super-Villains, including Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Supergirl. Each shoe is approximately 2.25 inches tall, finished with high quality paint, and packaged inside a blind-reveal, high-fashion-style shoebox. There are nine distinct vinyl figures in the DC Pumps collection, plus two rare variants and one ultra rare variant. They are available in stores everywhere now.
