Corner Store Comics has leaked the photos a few days early.

http://www.cornerstorecomics.com/index. ... =80885733#

There are some spoilers as to the identity of one of the Black Lanterns, so be careful about reading the text.

Too bad we didn't get this character though.

1 Alpha, 1 Red, 1 Blue, 1 'other'. I too am surprised they spoiled part of the story with this. I was expecting Arkillo (Yellow) and Agent Orange instead of the Alpha and the 'other'.

Yes, trying to be cryptic as to not give away too much. Read the link if you want to know the rest.

I might actually pick up Atrocitus & Walker. They'd be the first DCD figures I'd buy in well over a year, if so. They look pretty neat.

These will be the first DCD figures I buy in two years.

The fact that they're aliens will help reconcile the difference between them and the DCUCs.

If you've been reading the GL series, these all make sense and 3 of the 4 have already been featured.

3 out of 4 are buys for me. Probably. I'll have to wait to see what the Last looks like to decide for sure, but It's most likely i'll grab it. The Alpha Lantern though is a definite skip for me. I just don't like the design and i don't like the characters in the book. Besides, with the Mask in it looks to much like an Evil Version of a Blow up Doll.

DC Direct's website has leaked the next wave of figures in their Saint Walker announcement.

http://www.dccomics.com/dcdirect/popup_ ... =11570&j=b

There's a new John Stewart plus another hidden figure who I'm guessing is [spoiler]the Martian Manhunter[/spoiler].

Wow! Nice catch KSWolf!

The baby stealing yellow lantern is way creepy...

The blue lady lantern leaves me cooooold....who the Hell is she and why didnt we get some of the new Green Lanterns like Sodom Yot or Arisia OR more Yellow Lanterns...blahhhh...

And it sure does look like the character you mentioned in the box to me too!

The only thing said is the fact that I was hoping we would see a JL wave 4 line with John Stewart, Zatanna, Red Tornado and Steel...but judging from Johns inclusion here, I would guess that the JL line is done/// :(

Wow, the Indigo Lantern and Sinestro Corps member are both awesome.

Again, more aliens means more characters on my DCUC shelf. Badass.

Bedovian, I think his name was? :?
I'm really liking the look of these guys...very curious to see what the Orange Lanterns look like. The Black Lanterns are both cool and seriously messed up at the same time!
