I like how the joint for the blade is almost a lantern itself.

Too bad. He looks much cooler with it. :?

You know, none of the classic versions of Nekron -- who really were giant-sized, as opposed to human-sized Blackest Night -- carried a scythe.

Still ... in the 3 or 4 panels where Blackest Night Nekron was giant-sized, was he carrying the scythe? If not, maybe the figure is accurate!



But this is the Blackest Night Nekron, so yes he should have his scythe.

You know, I told myself that the scythe was the reason he was being broken up over 7 figures. So, if there is now no scythe how are his parts being distributed?...

The breakdown is

White Lantern Flash - Right Leg
Hawk - Upper Torso
Dove - Lower Torso
Reverse Flash - Left Leg
Green Arrow - Right Arm
Red Arrow - Left Arm
Sinestro - Head

What in the Blue Blazes is the point of separating the Lower Torso and Head pieces?

No sense what so ever...

To get you to buy 7 figures instead of 6?

can't you still do that by including the head with a figure and keeping the upper and lower torso together? :lol:

If you keep the upper and lower torso together, they come with one figure instead of two.

Normally the breakdown is:
Left Leg
Right Leg
Left Arm
Right Arm
Head & Lower Torso
Upper & Middle Torso

Or 6 figures.

I liked Jim's supposition best that the 7th figure came with the Scythe...
