Default Just ONE Hal Action Figure

Which would you recommend most? These are the two I'm currently considering:

I have and like both of those. The Blackest Night figure comes with a base and matches the Rebirth and BN set. The other one has no base and matches that series of Justice League Figures (New 52).

They're my two favorites (though if I remember correctly there's a Hal coming out soon that's pricey but super nice).

The JL figures also feature a magnificent Flash, a must have for me:

I see that line in Barnes and Noble all the time, so if you have a local B&N, take a look in the comic toys section and you might be able to see it before you buy it.

Thanks! I bought the DC Collectibles Justice League: The Flash, which is super nice too imo.

I don't think you could go wrong with either character. However, if I had to pick one, I'd go with the Justice League version. I think the articulation is slightly better.

It may depend on which artist you're more fond of. The Blackest Night figure is based on Ivan Reis' art and the JL figure is based on Jim Lee's art. I prefer the look of the BN figure more as the JL figure's head is freakishly small. That said, they're both good figures and I own both.

I have both but if I had to pick one I'd go with the blackest night figure. I prefer the Ivan Reis design of Hal and it also comes with a power battery and a base.

I ended up getting the Hal Kotobukiya statue and John DC Collectibles, very happy.
