Atrocitus00

Continuing the posting of my DC Blackest Night bust collection from yesterday, this is Atrocitus, bearer of the Red Lantern ring and one of the new characters introduced in the Blackest Night storyline. This bust subset heavily featured the new aliens that joined the DC ranks with this story arc, so there aren’t many A-string heroes or villains among these releases. Focusing on a particular story gave DC Direct an opportunity to focus on some lesser known but more visually interesting characters that very likely wouldn’t have gotten collectibles like these otherwise.

Arkillo00

Having photographed and posted the vast majority of my standard DC bust collection already, I’m now moving into the Blackest Night subset. Blackest Night was one of the later Green Lantern storylines in DC Comics in the years just prior to the New 52 reboot. The arc introduced many new characters, most of them aliens, who bore colored rings complementary to the classic Green Lantern ring and Sinestro’s classic villainous Yellow Lantern ring. The first one up here is Arkillo, another Yellow Lantern bearer.

Galactus00

Galactus is one of the coolest pieces released by Eaglemoss in their Classic Marvel Figurine Collection. I hesitate to call him a miniature, because he’s significantly larger than the other figures in that line. I took a photo of him next to Rogue for a scale comparison. The larger sculpture size allowed them to put some great details into this one, and he’s a fantastic centerpiece for the collection.

Tiffany00

I never was much into the Spawn comic books, but I got into collecting the action figures in the mid- to late-’90s. The Spawn toys were sort of gateway collectibles that got me interested in buying stuff outside of Star Wars, which was (and still is) my main collectible fandom. This Tiffany was the second figure McFarlane Toys made of the character, and she came out in 2000 as part of the 17th series of Spawn figures. I still know nothing about the character, but I like the tribal design and accessories that came with her.

Carnage00

Following yesterday’s Lex Luthor post, here’s another miniature from Eaglemoss. This time it’s Carnage, part of the Classic Marvel Figurine Collection. I got Carnage when he first came out and took these photos way back in 2008. I haven’t posted them here yet, so I decided to use them to give myself an “off” day from photography.

Had enough DC stuff? No? How about some photos of the Lex Luthor figurine from Eaglemoss’s DC Superhero Figurine Collection? Yeah? Here you go.

PoisonIvy00

I’ve managed to keep up with a new post with a different collectible every day of this Project 365 so far. Last night, following a resounding crash of thunder, the Internet went out, and it stayed out until sometime in the middle of the night. Consequently, even though I had the photos ready to go, I couldn’t make my daily post for August 5. I’m counting this as not having broken the Project 365 streak since the outage was due to factors out of my control, and I’m backdating this post to the 5th so as to conform in calendar view. All that bookkeeping aside, here’s the Poison Ivy bust from series 3 of the Women of the DC Universe line. I’ve been posting a lot of DC girls lately, and I plan to shift gears a little in the coming days.

Dove00

Dove is the companion piece to the Hawk bust I posted earlier, and they are partners in crimefighting in the comics. The original Dove was male, but after his death in Crisis on Infinite Earths, Dawn Granger took up the mantle of Dove. This bust is part of the third Women of the DC Universe series and shares a base design with the Hawk bust.

Catwoman00

Catwoman is one of DC Direct’s favorite characters, based on the number of statues and busts they’ve made of her. This one is from the third series of Women of the DC Universe busts and is designed by Amanda Conner. Most of the statues and busts depict Catwoman in one of her various black costumes, but this is the only one to date to put her in her purple catsuit from the early to mid-’90s. I’m not positive, but I think Jim Balent is the artist who created this look for the character, and it’s still one of the best.

Zatanna00

I’m still working my way through taking pictures of all the DC Direct busts, and today’s collectible goes all the way back to the first Women of the DC Universe series. Adam Hughes designed this Zatanna, and she came with “real” fishnets like the Black Canary bust. It’s a neat effect, and I’m still convinced that it’ll end up making mint condition busts rarer as more and more eventually end up getting snagged or torn in people’s collections. DC Direct followed up with another Zatanna bust a while later, designed by Amanda Conner.
