The DC Comics license is now heading over to McFarlane Toys that will kick off in 2020. McFarlane Toys will be able to produce 6″ and 12″ ultra-poseable action figures inspired by comic books, movies, and video games. This also allows them to make vehicles and accessories. As of 2019, this is the last year that Mattel will hold this license to produce action figures, and while Spin Master (they were granted a three year license) will also be offering DC Comics action figures as they too will have their own license, McFarlane Toys sounds like they’ve got the adult collector market.
Unfortunately, it sounds like McFarlane Toys won’t have any DC figures on display at their booth at this years New York ToyFair.
