Action Figures 4.5″

In my opinion the greatest series of action figures created since the MARVEL SECRET WARS figures back in the 80’s. A simple yet beautifully sculpted figure with just the right amount of articulation! Produced by Mattel from 2003 – 2011, I wont even pretend I know the exact number of figures produced but here is a pretty good WIKI to investigate them more: DC UNIVERSE

 

Let us know what you loved about this series, did you collect the action figures? Tell us about it! Thanks for listening!

Through him, we see the adventures of Avra the first Lantern, Princess Laira, Kilowog, the unsociable Mogo and Jordan’s immediate predecessor, Abin Sur. When Krona arrives, those stories prove more valuable than anyone expects as Arisia draws a special inspiration from them.
