NYCC 2018: DC announces new line of Batman cowls

You’ll soon be able to make your own mini-armory of Batman cowls thanks to DC Collectibles. The company has announced a new 1:2 line of replicas coming next year.

Man are these neat. DC Collectibles makes quite a few things that you could say that about of course, but as a big Bat-fan Im especially digging these. First off though, these cowls are not full scale. So don’t expect to see a gigantic piece if you get one. We’ve seen that kind of thing over the years too, but that’s not what DC is looking to do here.

No, these are a much more manageable mini size. So you’ll actually be able to fit more than one in your home. Or in my case, on my desktop. I’m really loving the idea of lining up a selection of them and making my own little armory.

“In some instances, like the Bat-cowl, the accessories of the DC Universe are just as iconic as the characters,” said Jim Fletcher, executive creative director of DC Collectibles. “Our DC Gallery line makes these popular accessories the star of the piece and offers something new and different for collectors to display on their shelves. The new Bat-cowl line pays tribute to the Dark Knight’s different looks throughout his nearly 80-year history. Every fan has a favorite Batman, and our goal is to bring to life as many incarnations of the Caped Crusader’s signature cowl as we can, whether it be from comics or another source.”

Cast in the 1:2 scale, the new line will start hitting retail next May, and kick off with the DC Rebirth version of the Batman cowl. After that, you’ll be able to pick up the Batman: Arkham (video game series) version of the iconic mask in July. Those will be the first selections in the line, and they’re looking pretty great.
