An Aqua-fan in Crisis……

blackest-night-event-20090630041107263Oh, bleeding heck.

They would have to go and make a Black Lantern Aquaman, wouldn’t they? As if poor Arthur hasn’t suffered enough indignity being turned into a bizzarroid fish dude before finally being offed, now we have to not only see him as a Black Lantern Zombiefreak, but have him in plastic as well?

Thanks to IGN’s reveal of DCD’s Blackest Night Waves 3 and 4, we know the answer is yes. Blankety blank, blankety blank, rude words, etc….

While I am looking forward to quite a few of the figures in this line, and have to give DCD props for finally making an Arisia figure, this one is a killer….

So, what is a loyal, completist, possibly OCD, and okay, totally anal-retentive Aquaman collector to do? At the moment I am naturally saying there is “no way” I will buy this piece of plastic sacrilege, but time will tell – all I can say is that if we don’t get a resurrected Arthur / Odin out of this, there’s going to be major throwing of stuff around the toyroom here at AFB!

As I await my final decision, help me out by telling me what you’re buying or not buying in the poll to the right.

Until next time!

Get the Dead Fish already... Y'know, I kinda like it. And besides, this is comics we are talking here, you know "dead" is just an awkward phase everyone should go through.

The only thing that turns me down is that apparently doesn't come with a stand that allows him to float upside down.

But at least now he can communicate with sushi...

I have so many more...

You know you want it!! For me, I really want the Atrocitus.

John Stewart - definitely. Kyle, maybe. Arisa, probably. The rest can sit on the shelves for all I care.

Oh I don't know, zombie aquaman is the only reason I'm gonna buy Blackest Night. I quite like it, i could stand him next to Black Canary and have him gurn at her. It would work.

They should definitely be making little slip on speech bubbles that say braaaainnns with these.

Kyle, Arisia, Boodikka, Kryb and Atrocitous look great.

John looks a bit unusual.

I actually will probably get them all ...
