Title: AFB TALKBACK: DC Direct Brightest Day: added Wave 2
Post by: Scotty on June 15, 2011, 08:04:19 am
Setting aside the fact that Flashpoint seems to render Brightest Day irrelevant, here's the first wave of DCD's Brightest Day figures. They're actually quite good!

Check out the review here: http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/06/dc-direct-ushers-in-brightest-day-at.html

And here's a teaser....

Couldn't agree more on Hawkgirl,by far the best Figure of her i've ever seen too.Gotta say your Pics are just looking better and better every time.Great backgrounds mate.

Hawkgirl is a massive win, but the others?......notsomuch. Arthur looks....odd? Those eyebrows really are weird.

I much prefer blonde eyebrows. As I said in the post, I'm pretty sure Arthur is a natural blonde, after all...

I really like the Boston Brand Deadman, he's a win for me.  [thumbs up]

Yeah, it's much more Adams-ish than the DCUC version.

I'm up to Wave 2 of Brightest Day, from which I bought Mera and Firestorm. I have one issue with each (the biggest being with Firestorm), but there's no denying these are each excellent figures.

Check it out here: http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/11/mera-and-firestorm-dawn-with-dc-direct.html

Enjoy!

Mera does indeed look good! How does she measure up (scalewise) to the DCUC Aquaman though?

Nice write-up Andy!

Mera is a beautiful Figure no doubt about it.Her coloured Casting rather than painted looks better than some of the others but still i'm not a big fan of it.Glad to have her in my collection though.
J'onn was a great Figure too from this wave that i was glad to add to my MM collection.
