If you’ve been following the massive DC Universe event leading up to the reboot, then you’ll definitely want to see what the new FLASHPOINT figures have in store. Check these out!
BATMAN (Thomas Wayne), WONDER WOMAN, CYBORG and THE FLASH make up the first series of Flashpoint 6-inch figures and they all look fantastic. Here’s the official write-up.
First, the DC Universe was plunged into darkness with BLACKEST NIGHT. Then BRIGHTEST DAY burned away the night.
EVERYTHING CHANGES IN A FLASH!
Comics’ next big event is not a dream, or an imaginary story, or an elseworld.
But for Barry Allen?
It could be his worst nightmare.
The world as Barry Allen knows it has changed. With humankind on the abyss’ edge of a cataclysmic war, Earth’s Greatest Heroes are nowhere to be found. It’s up to Cyborg, America’s last hope, to gather forces new and old from across the Universe.
If The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the timeline, the world may have no future at all.
Written by Geoff Johns with art by Andy Kubert, FLASHPOINT changes the DC Universe as we know it!
All four Flashpoint figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. Character-appropriate accessories are also included.
Hawk, Dove, Jade and Aqualad join up in this, the third series of DC Direct figures made to celebrate the awesomeness that has been BRIGHTEST DAY. Standing about 6 inches tall, they look just great and capture the vivid colours and sleek designs that defined the arc, which followed Blackest Night and brought the DC Universe into a better age.
Ahead of the reboot, figures like this seem all the more awesome: these designs might never be seen again and some of the characters might just get lost in the fray! Grabbing these is a great idea for anyone who wants to hold onto something that’s slipping away–or just to celebrate what’ll be nostalgia in a few short years.
Mark Strong takes on the role of Sinestro in the upcoming Green Lantern feature film and it’s some inspired casting that only seems confirmed in its awesomeness by the above trailer.
And, of course, with the coming of the highly-anticipated movie, there’s bound to be a fresh wave of new merchandise, including a great line of movie-themed action figures–not to mention some great figures based on the recent comic arc, Blackest Night.
But we’ve also got a special line that’s come out recently and it’s a throw-back to yesteryear and a glimpse into figures of a simpler time: the Retro-Action DC Heroes quasi-plush line. Check them out here or see our latest addition, the villainous Sinestro, right here:
Four extremely awesome figures make up the third series of DC’s stunning BRIGHTEST DAY. Check these guys out:
Aqualad, Dove, Hawk and Jade can be snagged individually or as a complete set, joining the likes of Aquaman, Mera, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman and more. You can pre-order them now and they’ll be shipping out in August of this year, with the other two series coming out later this month and June respectively.
SERIES 4 of DC Direct’s Green Lantern collection is now available for pre-order, shipping way out there in November of this year. If you’re a GL fan, though, you might consider these guys a foregone conclusion so feel free to order away!
Joining the likes of Hal Jordan and Black Hand, Star Sapphire and Cyborg Superman are four new figures that you can grab individually or as a set. Green Lantern Arkkis Chummuk, Green Lantern Power Glow Hal Jordan, Green Lantern Stel and the terrifying Red Lantern Guy Gardner are all here and look stunning as highly-detailed and beautifully sculpted 6-inch figures.
Sodam Yat, Nautkeiloi & Medphyll, Star Sapphire, Dex – Desportellis & B’dg, Skallox & Night-Lik and G-Hu are all here in the second series of Green Lantern Classic figures. It’s about time the more obscure members of the various Lantern Corps got some recognition and DC is finally giving it to them, immortalising each one as 6-inch figures who unite to form Stel if you collect each one. Naturally, you can grab each one individually or just get the whole collection.
With these lines and the Brightest Day collection, Green Lantern has been getting an awesome amount of love lately. Grab your favourites now!
