With the full solicitations up on the mothership, DC unveiled the latest assortment of DC Direct figures. It’s not a great surprise to see the successful “Blackest Night” sub-group moving forward. This sixth assortment features Hal Jordan (in his first appearance in the subline), Wonder Woman as a Star Sapphire, The Flash (Barry Allen) as a Blue Lantern, and Black Lantern Hawkgirl. Other items of note are the 1:6 scale Jonah Hex figure based on the film and a statue recreating the cover to the classic 1978 Superman vs. Muhammad Ali special.
The continuing Blackest Night strategy is probably a good one for DC Direct. It would be nice to see them squeeze in a regular, classic Mera before doing a Red Lantern version of the character. As it is, Mera’s never gotten the modern action figure treatment, and it would be a bit of a drag for fans that have wanted to see one for years to have the first DC Direct version be the Red. So, what say you, collectors? Enjoying the continual Blackest Night presence, or do you want DC Direct to shake it up a little more?
