Blackest Night: Series 2 Action Figures Next Week!

A look at the 11/25 release of the new set of Blackest Night figures.


With Blackest Night in full swing, DC Direct, yet again, has more figures from the series coming out on Tuesday, 11/25.  In series one, we saw the release of Black Lantern Earth-2 Superman, Atrocitus, Saint Walker, and Boodikka. And with this next week, we see the release of Indigo, John Stewart, Black Lantern Martian Manhunter, and Kryb



These figures all are based off their likenesses from the current Blackest Night storyline

   All four figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. John Stewart and Indigo each come with their own version of a lantern, and Kryb comes with a baby accessory that fits into the cage-like sack affixed to her back. 

Series one, to me, was a little bit of a let down. I picked up Atrocitus and Satin Walker. For this weeks series, I will be picking up every figure. The amount of detail within these figures is amazing. One of the best parts about this current Green Lantern Figure run is that each figure comes with it's own little accessory. Indigo has her staff, John has his lantern, M.M. has that wicked torn up cape (accessory?), and Kryb has two little babies that fit into her back... Anyone else creeped out by that? Each figure will range from $14.99-$17.99, depending where you buy it from. Sometimes it may seem like a little too much for a toy, but with the high quality DC Direct puts out, it is worth it.
 
If you are unfamiliar with these characters check out early 2009 issues of Green Lantern Corps for Kryb, current issues of Green Lantern for Indigo, Blackest Night 1 & 2 for Martian Manhunter, and current issues of Green Lantern Corps for John Stewart.

The Kryb with the babies is quite disturbing. That's just all levels of creepy.

LMAO!   
 
I agree "Kryb" with the babies is a whole new level of creepiness, action figures or otherwise--and I like it.  Not into Blackest Night nor even action figures but these are pretty whack in a good way.

I wonder if the next series will contain a baby super pack. Seems like getting only two is like owning only two Stormtroopers.

Wow that blue chick really looks like Hulks wife from Planet Hulk. Cool toys, But wish mattel put out better 3 3/4 inch figures. they are terrible compared to hasbros marvel figures. But i guess Hasbro has had much more experience with G.i Joe and star wars, they know how to make a sweet toy.

Yes they are.

To anyone interested: I picked up John Stewart and Kryb. They were the two best out of the series. The Kryb figure is pretty big and the amount of detail within the figure is amazing.
