About a month ago, I previewed the DC Universe Classics spin off series, Green Lantern Classics Wave 1 and now that I've finally received a few of these babies, its time to start the reviews. I'm going to start with one of the main bad guys from the Blackest Night comic book series and the figure that Mattel has labeled Figure #2 in this wave, (but he is #1 in my heart), The Black Lantern, Black Hand.
Lets take a look at the packaging before ripping it open and throwing it away. Very similar to its big brother DC Universe Classics toy series packaging. The DC Universe symbol up top, graphics backing and character bio pictures of the entire wave on the back. Of course, since this is Green Lantern Classics, the main color in the packaging is, green.
After not being a significant player in the DC Universe, Black Hand finally got his moment in the spotlight in the very popular DC Comics series, The Blackest Night. Now Mattel has given us a great action figure and you must go out and buy him, now! For a character that was virtually nothing before the Blackest Night comic series, he is now one of my favs DCUC/GLC action figures of recent waves.
