The New 52 Nightwing steps out of Batman’s shadow

“Batman got all the cool rogues,” good ‘ol Nightwing once pointed out, and we get it — it’s totally his time to shine. Following the events of Flashpoint, Nightwing was re-imagined as part of The New 52 re-vamp. And then, after the return of Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson (formerly Robin) reprises his role as the dynamo Nightwing, shedding a blue emblem for a red one and trading in his skintight suit for full body armor and gauntlet handpieces. It’s clear that he’s back and ready for business, and this makes his new costuming anything but trivial.

Own a piece of the new Nightwing legacy with his New 52 incarnation! He stands six inches tall, ready for display alongside your other DC collectibles. And, hey — after all these years, don’t you think he deserves a bit of a leg up on Batman? We’ve always been down for the underdogs. Snap Nightwing up pronto!

The Dark (K)Nightwing? We'd like to see that one.

Flashpoint 4-Pack

The Flashpoint versions of The Flash, Wonder Woman, Emperor Aquaman and Batman have arrived as a 4-figure set, which also comes with an exclusive $500 poker chip from Wayne Casino. Each figure is about 6 inches tall and are a great buy to remind you of what was a very strange, but very memorable, period in DC’s history.

DC UNIVERSE: FLASHPOINT

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.

And now?

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.

Coming in July: FLASHPOINT

FLASHPOINT is the next big event on DC’s roster and will be the lead-in to the upcoming reboot/renumbering. The first wave of figures already shows at least some of the radical changes we’re going to see in the alternate universe of the event. Really, you just need to take one look at the gorgeous, revamped Wonder Woman and you can’t help but have your interest at least slightly piqued.

She’s joined by the Flash, Cyborg and Batman in DC Direct’s first Flashpoint series and you can find them all individually or as a set. They’re now pre-orderable and will be shipping in July! With luck, they’ll be joined by more figures in the not-too-distant future!
