Toy Fair 2014 is this week so many companies are prepping to show what they will be releasing from the toy department during the coming year. As with most things now, announcements tend to be released before the show even begins, which is exactly what DC did when they announced multiple new lines including figures from Batman: The Animated Series and Son of Batman.
