Indigo-1-00

Here we come to the final piece in the DC Blackest Night bust series that I haven’t posted yet: Indigo-1. She’s one of the only two females (Star Sapphire being the other) in this series and is taller than most of the others, thanks to her staff. I’ll be posting some new photos of older collectibles over the next couple of days, and then I’ll be queueing up some older photos to post while I’m gone next week to Dragon Con.

GreenLantern00

This guy is the centerpiece of my Blackest Night bust collection, and he’s my favorite Green Lantern (in much the same way that most folks have their favorite Doctor from Doctor Who). This Hal Jordan bust isn’t the first collectible in the DC bust series to feature the character, but it’s made especially for the Blackest Night subseries, complete with matching base.

SaintWalker00

Today I’m posting another of the alien characters from DC’s Blackest Night bust series. This one is Saint Walker in his Blue Lantern Corps uniform, and his base matches the rest of the Lantern members in this subset of the main line.

Batman00

I’m back to the Blackest Night busts after taking a couple of days off for other collectibles, and today’s feature is Black Lantern Batman. Blackest Night came after DC’s extended Batman R.I.P. storyline, in which Bruce Wayne comic book-died (meaning, of course, that he just went away from the comics for a while and returned later at an opportune time). During the time that Batman supposedly was dead, he came back in this zombified version along with a bunch of other deceased DC heroes and villains, including the previously posted Firestorm. I like the details in the paint on this Batman, especially the mud splatters on his cape that make it look like he’s just clambered his way up out of a grave. His pose either is a zombie reach or an enthusiastic call for the check while he waits impatiently in his booth at Chili’s.

Sinestro00

Longtime Green Lantern villain Sinestro is one of the baddies featured in the Blackest Night storyline and bust series. Instead of his traditional Yellow Lantern gear, here he’s wearing a White Lantern uniform. I still have a few more Blackest Night busts to go but am switching up tomorrow to take a brief break for some other collectibles before coming back to finish this line out.

Larfleeze00

Here’s another alien from the Blackest Night DC busts, Larfleeze. He’s probably my favorite of the third-string character sculpts in this series. They did a nice job on his fur details, and the paint job has a cool metallic orange finish. And just lookit the way he’s hugging his power battery! He lubs it! Or, well, covets it or something, but it’s still a great pose.

Firestorm00

I’m continuing my posting of Blackest Night busts from DC Direct with this Black Lantern Firestorm. One of the crazier elements of the Blackest Night storyline was the introduction of the Black Lantern Corps, which basically resurrected in zombified form tons of previously deceased DC heroes and villains. Firestorm was among the risen, and this mostly grayscale bust is his representation in the bust subset. Interestingly, they have yet to release a non-dead version of Firestorm in the line.

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.

BlackHand00

Here are some diabolical shots of the Black Hand bust from DC’s Blackest Night collectibles series. He’s a vicious looking dude and comes holding a wicked looking skull. This series of busts has matching bases, each color coded for the character’s Lantern ring color and featuring the other Lanterns’ symbols all around it.
