The holiday season has officially kicked off, but maybe you’re more civil minded and the real holiday for you is the March 2016 film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With a movie of that size, merchandise is a guarantee almost as certain as enthusiastic fans will be debating who would win in a fight – Batman or Superman. While you’re out preparing your gift list and shopping for others (and maybe yourself), keep in mind that the merchandising machine for Batman v Superman will soon be roaring into stores. With collectibles slated for release starting in January, now is the perfect time to start saving those pennies!
Let’s take a look at some of the merchandise we know will be coming out for the historic cinematic occasion!
Hot Wheels will be releasing a line of cars featuring imagery inspired by the film. Other than The Batmobile, we probably won’t be seeing the other fun cars in the line, but they will make great additions to your collection. Outside of the seven main cars, there will be a Joker variant.
DC Collectibles will be unveiling four statues for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starting in January. Running at an SRP of $150, both Batman and Superman will be available this January. Armored Batman and Wonder Woman will be available in March to coincide with the release of the movie.
Jakks Pacific have found great success with their oversized figures. These are pretty fun for just about any age group and are relatively new in the modern toy industry. While there have always been giant sized figures, such as the Shogun Warriors, the giant size figures for superheroes and wrestlers started to arrive on store shelves in 2005. The giant sized figures for Batman v Superman will feature Batman, Armored Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. (Image courtesy of Idle Hands. Check them out for more imagery of the Jakks Pacific line of Batman v Superman toys.)
