One of the biggest Green Lantern-themed stories in recent years, Blackest Night is the latest focal point for McFarlane Toys’ DC Multiverse line.
In brightest day
An event quite a while in the making, Blackest Night made good on a Lantern prophesy. The crossover event made a single line in the Corps’ oath mean much more than previously thought, and threatened the totality of the DCU.
Blackest Night introduced DC fans to the living embodiment of death, Nekron, and his Black Lantern corps. GL villain Black Hand was a central part of the story as well, and so were the dead that he rose, many of whom were formerly DC heroes. And that brings us to the newest wave of DC Multiverse action figures from McFarlane Toys.
Just detailed, the new wave takes on Blackest Night, featuring a selection of undead heroes, as well as Lantern Kyle Rayner and the massive Atrocitus. The Red Lantern commander is the build-a-figure for the set, so you’ll need all 4 of the individual figures to assemble him.
- DC Build-A Wave 8 Blackest Night Green Lantern Kyle Rayner 7-Inch Scale Action Figure
- DC Build-A Wave 8 Blackest Night Batman 7-Inch Scale Action Figure
- DC Build-A Wave 8 Blackest Night Deathstorm 7-Inch Scale Action Figure
- DC Build-A Wave 8 Blackest Night Black Lantern Superman 7-Inch Scale Action Figure
All of the above are sculpted in the 7″ scale, with 22 points of articulation. As with the line on the whole, each also includes a display base, and appropriate accessories. With this specific wave, those (accessories) are few and far between, since the undead don’t really have a lot going on in that area.
One note of interest though, is that Deathstorm comes with the White Lantern. For any fan of the story, that’s a pretty big inclusion.
