Blammoids! Series 2 by DC Direct

We’ve known for a while now what characters were going to be included in DC Direct’s second wave of Blammoids! vinyl figures, but now we have a release date. Blammoids! Series 2 will go on sale April 7, 2010….just a measly 8 months away. Blammoids! Series 2 includes chunky/blocky versions of some of DC Comics’ greatest heroes and villain, including Superman, Lex Luthor, Batgirl, Darkseid, Plastic Man and The Creeper.

It’s kind of an anticlimactic announcement when you realize Series 1 isn’t out yet and Series 2 isn’t being released for a very long time. I just assumed they’d be hitting store shelves sometime soon since they had the first four waves of Blammoids! figures on display at SDCC (check them out here).

They may not be coming out for a while, but it hasn’t dampened my anticipation for these faux designer vinyl figures. I especially love The Creeper, whose crazy smile takes up his entire face! And I don’t know what it is about Superman’s hair, maybe it’s the crazy blue streak in it, but it too looks pretty cool.

Each Blammoids! vinyl figure is packaged on a blister card, measures approximately 2.5" to 4" tall and has three points of articulation.
