Teen Titans fans are in for something special. Take a look at the DC Designer Series Teen Titans Earth One Cyborg, a new six-inch offering by the creative Terry Dodson. The partially-human hero Victor Stone has been a staple of the DC Universe since 1980.
An essential component of the comic-book world, he received a reboot with the Justice League in 2011, and now he’s here in a brand-new format to spiff up your collection. We’ve also got six-inch versions of Beast Boy and Raven, too, so the whole gang’s here. Click “Shop Now” to get yours in time for the holidays!
Best known as a member of the Teen Titans, Cyborg is also known to be one of the crucial founding members of the Justice League as per the New 52 narratives. Born Victor Stone and developing an extraordinary IQ thanks to the scientist parents who use him as a test subject, his body parts are all eventually replaced by high-tech prosthetics, helping him with his abilities of superhuman strength, supersonic flight and next-level durability.
Here, he’s gotten a New 52 reboot as the next instalment in the DC “Animated Movie” series, recalling his looks in the original film Justice League: War. He’ll go into intense combat against the Apokolips troops with this six-inch rendering!
Human or machine? Both. Like a Venn diagram of everything great.
Where will you be in six years? Me, I’m a simple person — really, I’ll be happy if I can finally cook something other than ramen in 2020. But DC has far loftier goals than I, apparently. For all of you visual learners out there, here’s a graphic plan of DC movie titles for the next six 365-day carousels of humble human existence. Which will happen if the world doesn’t eventually succumb to a zombie-ebola apocalypse, that is.

Based on their looks in INJUSTICE : GODS AMONG US, this pair of figures is something of an unlikely duo, but no one’s complaining when both of them are so undeniably awesome.
What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of the definitive fighting game Mortal Kombat. Featuring DC Comics icons such as Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Arrow, The Joker, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents an original story. Heroes and villains will engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.
Each figure is about 6 inches tall and features 20 points of articulation!
If you’ve been following the massive DC Universe event leading up to the reboot, then you’ll definitely want to see what the new FLASHPOINT figures have in store. Check these out!
BATMAN (Thomas Wayne), WONDER WOMAN, CYBORG and THE FLASH make up the first series of Flashpoint 6-inch figures and they all look fantastic. Here’s the official write-up.
First, the DC Universe was plunged into darkness with BLACKEST NIGHT. Then BRIGHTEST DAY burned away the night.
EVERYTHING CHANGES IN A FLASH!
Comics’ next big event is not a dream, or an imaginary story, or an elseworld.
But for Barry Allen?
It could be his worst nightmare.
The world as Barry Allen knows it has changed. With humankind on the abyss’ edge of a cataclysmic war, Earth’s Greatest Heroes are nowhere to be found. It’s up to Cyborg, America’s last hope, to gather forces new and old from across the Universe.
If The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the timeline, the world may have no future at all.
Written by Geoff Johns with art by Andy Kubert, FLASHPOINT changes the DC Universe as we know it!
All four Flashpoint figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. Character-appropriate accessories are also included.
Batman, Catwoman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman (who has yet to be revealed) are the first action figures being released from DC Direct’s new line based on DC Universe Online. These are fully-articulated and at about a 6- or 7-inch scale, differing from the previously released DCU Online Statues.
Each one looks absolutely great and comes with character-appropriate weapons and accessories, plus bases that make them easy (and awesome) to display. They are based on the art of Jim Lee.
FLASHPOINT is the next big event on DC’s roster and will be the lead-in to the upcoming reboot/renumbering. The first wave of figures already shows at least some of the radical changes we’re going to see in the alternate universe of the event. Really, you just need to take one look at the gorgeous, revamped Wonder Woman and you can’t help but have your interest at least slightly piqued.
She’s joined by the Flash, Cyborg and Batman in DC Direct’s first Flashpoint series and you can find them all individually or as a set. They’re now pre-orderable and will be shipping in July! With luck, they’ll be joined by more figures in the not-too-distant future!
