DC Collectibles played the Spoiler Alert game with the Batman: Arkham Origins Anarky earlier, and he won’t be alone. The latest solicits reveal the full second series of Arkham Origins figures. Joining Anarky are Deadshot, Deadpool Deathstroke, and Firefly. They will be out in March next year.

We saw the full reveal of DC Collectible’s New 52 Crime Syndicate last week. The solicits show that Johnny Quick (with Atomica) and Owlman are also due in March next year. Last month’s solicits showed that Ultraman, Superwoman, and Power Ring are coming in February.

Eight DC Direct Steals for Characters You Won’t See in DC Universe Classics

I have a bias for super-articulated figures, so for the DC Comics brand, I tend to favor Mattel’s DC Universe Classics line over similar offerings from DC Direct / DC Collectibles. But one thing I do concede – DCD dives a lot deeper into the comics world for their character selection. Here’s eight crazy deals on DCD figures that you will probably never see offered in the DC Universe Classics line. The first four are Prime, which means free 2-day shipping if you’re a member, or if you spend over $25 if you are not:

DC Direct Green Lantern Blackest Night Quick Pics

I’ve been a big fan of Green Lantern since Hal Jordan and Alan Scott took on Solomon Grundy in a Silver Age issue of Justice League of America. When the GL franchise got a boost from what Geoff Johns was doing with Blackest Night, I started building out my Green Lantern Corps, including the key members of the new “Rainbow” Corps.

So, a bunch of my earlier Green Lantern collection was from DC Direct (now known as DC Collectibles) – including Saint Walker, Atrocitus, Black Hand, Nekron, Kilowog, and Guy Gardner.
