DC HeroClix Blackest Night Atom

The Blackest Night Starter Kit reveals return, with the Atom in his Blue Lantern deputy tribal outfit.  This is probably my least favorite of the deputy costumes, but the translucent effects look pretty spectacular.

The search for Ray Palmer is over. He’s in the DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game!

The Atom

A stalwart member of the Justice League, Ray Palmer’s life was torn apart when he discovered that his love Jean Loring was a murderer. Even after taking a pilgrimage into the multiverse in search of a new purpose, the Atom found he still felt empathy for Loring and all those who had brought evil upon the innocent. In the rise of the Blackest Night, the Atom’s rare compassion allowed him to join the Indigo Tribe and wield the power of their light.

The DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game will be in comic and hobby stores on May 12, 2010. The Starter Game includes everything you need to play HeroClix: seven HeroClix figures, the 2010 HeroClix Rulebook, a map (The Oan Sciencells) and more – reserve your copy at your local retailer!

DC HeroClix Blackest Night Scarecrow

The HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Kit reveals continue with Scarecrow as a deputy of the Sinestro Corps.  The detail on the new digital sculpts continues to impress.

Fear

Paging Dr. Crane. Paging Dr. Crane. Please report to the DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game.

SCARECROW

Though his fear toxins gave him the ability to instill fear in nearly everyone, long exposure to the chemicals made the Scarecrow himself unable to feel terror–except when he was pursued by Batman. In the wake of the Dark Knight’s death, the Scarecrow was on the brink of despair–until in the Blackest Night the Scarecrow found a new purpose when he was given a yellow power ring and a place in the Sinestro Corps!

DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game Lex Luthor redefines “power suit.”

LEX LUTHOR

Since childhood, Lex Luthor refused to let anything stand between him and what he desired. Though born to wealth and status, Luthor wanted always wanted more, building a path to power paved with suspicions, accusations, and corpses. In the Blackest Night, Luthor refused to aid past allies and strived  only to save himself and what belonged to him–proving himself the perfect candidate for a greed-fueled orange power ring!

DC Heroclix Blackest Night Mera and Hal Jordan

A couple of weeks ago I saw some Marvel Heroclix at Toys R Us – these were the first Heroclix toys I’ve seen at retail since NECA acquired WizKids and the Heroclix licenses, and it was good to see some new stuff.  But the announcement of a Blackest Night Starter Kit  promises some great things to come.  They’ll be announcing figures all week, and the reveal of Mera as a Red Lantern is sure to generate some rage in the collector community.

I’m not a collector of these, but I do appreciate the level of detail that NECA is achieving with these now – this starter kit will feature figures sculpted digitally, with great results.

Rage

DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game previews continue with Mera!

Queen of Atlantis and wife to Aquaman, Mera rallied her people in the wake of a planetwide crisis and became the leader of a rebel army determined to take vengeance for the destruction of Atlantis and the death of Aquaman. After the battle was won, she agreed to have the body of Aquaman moved to Atlantis…only to find he had risen from the grave as a Black Lantern. The desecration of the man she loved ignited a new fury in Mera, leading her to the front lines of the battle against the Black Lanterns and the Blackest Night…and earning her a place in the rage-powered Red Lantern Corps!

San Diego Comic-Con DC Direct Pics

I stopped by the DC booth today to see what was new with DC Direct.   I got a chuckle out of an irate fan who was demanding to see Jim Fletcher, DC Direct’s Design Director.  I guess he didn’t know he was ranting at Georg Brewer, VP Design, and the guy who ultimately calls the shots.

Hal Jordan Exclusive – DCD had 2 of these sets on display, but the figures were on sale at Grafitti Design’s booth.  I didn’t even try to pick these up, because it would require hitting them up each day of the Con.  I’m not sure if Hal’s been in all these colors yet in the comics, but each figure sports both a Green ring on his right hand, and the respective other color ring on his left.  I must have been too afraid to take a close-up of the Yellow Lantern version.
