McFarlane Toys revealed today their success with the DC Multiverse action figure line is now moving to statues and busts. Clearly, the McFarlane Toys line has been a success for DC and Warner Bros. Consumer Products since McFarlane Toys took over making their toys. The news is a bit bittersweet when you consider just under a year ago Warner announced they were shuttering DC Direct and DC Collectibles which was known for its excellent statues and busts.
This news also revealed McFarlane Toys will manage current DC Direct inventory so likely if there are statues and busts sitting in a warehouse you’ll be able to purchase them through the toy company.
