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.
Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Deadman and Aquaman have finally arrived as the members of DC Direct’s new line. Based on the recent and hugely popular company-wide event, BRIGHTEST DAY, these 6-inch figures faithfully capture the best and most dynamic looks of these characters as they appeared on the pages of the connected comics.
You can grab these guys individually or as a set and they work great as both functional and display figures. Already planned are two more series to follow this one, where you’ll be able to snag Firestorm, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter and Mera (Series 2) and then Aqualad, Dove, Hawk and Jade (Series 3). Of course, if the wait is killing you, you can pre-order and make sure you get ’em sent your way the second they’re shipped out!
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!
Two new figures have just joined the Ame-Comi PVC figure collection and they’re adding a bit of Green Lantern-verse appeal to the line!
STAR SAPPHIRE, Hal Jordan’s longtime love and a superhero in her own right, capable of some pretty incredible things as she uses love, desire and her own brand of awesome to take on any challengers. As Queen of the Zamaronians, she and hers bring a lighter touch to the world of the Lantern Corps.–that is, when she isn’t kicking butt and taking names.
And if you’re a GL fan, then check out JADE, daughter of Alan Scott and lady love of Kyle Rayner, she’s a gorgeous girl who, in this Ame-Comi rendering, seems to be making her own fun.
Jade jams! With a groovy beat and far-out clothes, the daughter of Alan Scott charges the music with a little bit of Emerald Energy.
The latest BLACKEST NIGHT figures have arrived! Series 5 is comprised entirely of Black Lanterns, dark versions of the heroes we know and love and a terrifying supervillain bent on a galactic war.
Each one is about 7 inches tall and looks just as vicious as you might expect, ready to bring down what remains of the GL Corps and the Justice League one hero at a time! Here’s the complete set of figures now available and in-stock, a great way to bring the battle for the universe to your very own toy shelf!
BLACK LANTERN NEKRON
BLACK LANTERN HAWKMAN
BLACK LANTERN DEADMAN
BLACK LANTERN BATMAN
SERIES 5 COMPLETE SET
“BRIGHTEST DAY is about second chances. It’s looking at twelve characters that have been resurrected and examining whether it’s a miracle or a curse. Some second chances work out… some don’t. BRIGHTEST DAY is the next step in repositioning a lot of characters in the DC Universe and pushing them to the next level.”
As Blackest Night comes to a close, are you ready for the dawn of DC’s new event, BRIGHTEST DAY? With a great collection of writers and artists collaborating on the comics and storylines, the next few months should be a pretty great time for fans of the heroes and villains they can expect to see along the way.
And, of course, the fact that something new is beginning also means that DC Direct is rolling out the new figures and I am very pleased to say that they look absolutely great. Standing 6 inches tall, brilliantly sculpted based on the new looks of the characters and the new art style of the event, they’re only the first series of what will surely be a very nice-looking collection. Check out the first four below, snaggable either individually or as a set! They can be pre-ordered now and ship in March 2011!
AQUAMAN (March 2011)
DEAD MAN (March 2011)
GREEN ARROW (March 2011)
HAWKGIRL (March 2011)
SET OF ALL 4 FIGURES (March 2011)
Missed this year’s WonderCon? Aching to snag their exclusive White Lantern Sinestro figure? Then look no further because we’ve got it in stock and ready to go!
The Green Lantern’s nemesis, Sinestro, appears here as a White Lantern, a reflection of the dramatic events of DC’s massively popular Blackest Night. It’s a limited edition figure with only 1500 having been produced and an exclusive meant to stand against the just-as-unlikely Hal Jordan Black Lantern figure.
He stands at about 6 inches tall and, like most of the Lantern figures, comes with a ring you can break out on those days when you feel the need to suit up and save the world–or take it over. Whatever works for you!
