To celebrate the worldwide debut of the line’s Batman and Superman figures (15″, $350), MINDstyle brought DC’s characters to life with an impressive installation featuring six 7-foot fiberglass statues of Superman, Green Arrow, Batman, Robin, The Flash and Harley Quinn.
The new officially-licensed line of toys features alternate visions of DC’s iconic superheroes (and villains) as ancient Chinese warriors wearing styled versions of traditional armor through a license from the Beijing Imperial Court Cultural Development Company. Each of the stylized characters is immediately recognizable yet immediately distinct as they carry the visual hallmarks of imperial tradition.
In addition to the release of the Batman and The Flash figures, MINDstyle also gave fans a sneak peak of coming figures with factory samples of Superman, Green Arrow, Harley Quinn and Robin.
MINDstyle also showcased the brand-new Johnny vinyl (10″, $150) from NYC graffiti legend Futura as well both Series 1 and Series 2 of the Bode SFBI minis
(2″,4-pack, $60) featuring Vaughn Bode’s characters from his underground comics.
