DC Direct solicits hit the ‘net today and there were a few surprises for Blackest Night fans.
First up we had the figures previously announced in ToyFare #150:
BLACKEST NIGHT SERIES 5 ACTION FIGURES
Behold the Power of the Black Lanterns! This fifth series of action figures based on the hugely popular BLACKEST NIGHT event includes Nekron, the Lord of the Unliving; Hawkman, the winged warrior who joins the Black Lanterns after falling victim to them; Deadman, the ghost hero who’s tormented by voices of the dead; and Batman, who, in death, is as susceptible to the Black Lantern Corps as anyone. All four figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. Character-appropriate accessories are also included. On-Sale August 4, 2010.
Includes: Black Lantern Batman • 6.75” h
Black Lantern Nekron • 7.25” h
Black Lantern Hawkman • 7” h
Black Lantern Deadman • 6.75” h
Also mentioned in ToyFare #150, the Sinestro Corps Mongul. This figure is a repaint of the 2006 Infinite Crisis Mongul.
And though not an action figure, these are something any Blackest Night fan would be interested in:
