DC Direct Blackest Night Black Lantern Mongul Deluxe Action Figure

And the Blackest Night actions figures just keep on coming! The Blot’s been super impressed with DC Direct’s line of Blackest Night figures so far, but the deluxe Black Lantern Mongul action figure is a big disappointment. As a character, I’ve really enjoyed Mongul’s part in the overall Blackest Night storyline, but this figure looks like just a weak repaint of a previously released toy.

DC Direct Blackest Night Series 5 - Black Lantern Mongul Deluxe Action Figure
DC Direct has set the bar so high with its previously released Black Lantern figures, I expect so more from a Black Lantern Mongul figure. Plus, shouldn’t he look like much more of a zombie? Maybe this figure is story accurate and I just don’t realize it yet, but either way it looks like they just slapped a Black Lantern logo on their previously released Mongul figure. I really hope this is just a preliminary mark-up and not the final product.

The DC Direct Blackest Night Black Lantern Mongul deluxe action figure comes packaged in a deluxe clamshell and is scheduled to go on sale August 4, 2010.
