What's the deal with Boodikka's face as black, and then pink on the blurb to the side? The face flips, right? That kind of looks like Superboy-Prime there in black, but I know it's not.

I like Atrocitus, glad they actually gave him a real Red Lantern (where it looks like Saint doesn't get a real Blue Lantern)... but I'm not a fan of big open mouths on figures.

These look pretty good. At some point they should do box sets for each Corps or a few sets with different members from all the Corps. Obviously the entire War of the Light is a goldmine for potential figures.

Default Blackest Night action figures (with one spoiler)

i just saw this thread on the cbr forum and i thought that ill share it with you

Blackest Night Series 1 Set of Four Figures
DC Direct is proud to produce action figures for THE event of the summer - the beginning of the highly-anticipated "Blackest Night" storyline! Included in this series are Earth-2 Superman, the first member of the lifeless, emotionless Black Lanterns to be revealed; Boodikka, the veteran corpsman who was among the first to become a member of the Green Lantern Corps' own policing unit, the Alpha Lanterns; Saint Walker, the first member of the Blue Lantern Corps, which champions hope in the universe; and Atrocitus, Abin Sur's killer and the first to utilize the power of blood and rage to become a member of the Red Lantern Corps, which is out to destroy both the Sinestro and Green Lantern Corps! All four figures feature multiple points of articulation and include a display base. The Saint Walker and Atrocitus figures include lantern accessories, and the Boodikka figure comes with a removeable face plate. 4-color clamshell blister card packaging. FEB09

Blackest Night series two could be:
- Agent Orange
- An Indigo Corps member
- Arkillo maybe
- Another lanternized Superman or Batman figure

Wow...I'm incredibly excited for these. If DC Direct doesn't push these back like they do everything else then September will be a good month. I'm glad Boodikka has the removable faceplate so we can see the manhunter face underneath and pleased to see Atrocitus with a proper red lantern.

Man, I was so hoping for a Dex Star pack in with Atrocitus.

I will of course be getting them all.

This is a great looking wave! I'm not even mad at myself for spoiling it for...myself. The Black Lantern isn't really a big surprise to me. Just seems like an easy way to get a certain property in somebody elses wave, if you know what I mean.

And I guess this is another way for DCD to start yet another wave of GL figures with a "wave 1" brand. How many times have they managed to start the GL line over with new number ones? I have no idea why, it's not comics, it's action figures!

Good looking firgures though. I like how so many of the 8 corps will be done in plastic by September. Sinestro is done to represent the SC, Saint Walker for the BLC, anyone for the GLC, Atrocitus for the RLC, and a Black Lantern. That just leaves an Orange Lantern, and Indigo Lantern, and a Star Saphire. They did do SS in the new costume, but not the whole ring theme, so I don't know if that counts, not to mention Carol isn't a member of their new faction. But cool that so many are represented though. I look forward to "wave 2"!

These look great Atrocitus and Saint Walker are must haves, while Boodika and The BL are maybe's I wonder what this means for the GL Series from DC Direct though.

Oh you know what it means! When BN has done two waves and wraps up, GL waves will come out with GL series 1.

Maybe they can throw in a Bzzd figure when they do Dex Star. That two pack would help make it worth the price of a normal sized figure. Arkillo is a must, Natu as well. And at some point, in some wave, they have to do a Kyle in his latest costume. Unless he changes it again before they can. LOL

You realize that a Bzzd figure, to scale with the others, would be practically microscopic?

Not to mention, he'd need to be in Black Lantern regalia.

Those figures are amazing! I will have them ALL!

Personally...I have an empty GL base with my other GLs to represent Bzzd. I have one for Leezle Pon as well.
