Blackest Night has given us a bunch of spectrum lanterns and black lanterns. With the end of the comic series and the start of Brightest Day, a few questions.

When do you think DC Direct will switch over to making Brightest Day figures?

Who do you want to see?

Me? - I'd like to see them start with the major players from Blackest Night who did not fit into the Lantern theme of that line.

Mera
+
Deadman

I agree with you on Mera--she'd be number 1 on my list.

I don't see the need for another Deadman, since I just got the DCUC one (are you saying you want one with him without the mask and a human face?).

I would add:

Jade
Martian Manhunter (I like his new design, and they've made pretty much every other version of him, might as well get this one too :D )

I finally got to pick up issue 1 today. Good read overall. Definitely some creepy stuff going on behind the scenes. Interestingly, several of the 12 are not present, while Mera and the Atom continue to be important. I think this book may focus on those who are not featured elsewhere.
- Capt Boomerang will be in the Flash
- Zoom will be in the Flash also
- Maxwell Lord is in Justice League Generation Lost.
- Jade is in the main JLA book.
- Hawk is in Birds of Prey.
- Osiris is in Titans:Villains for Hire

And we get
- Deadman
- Aquaman and Mera and ...
- Firestorm and the Atom
- Martian Manhunter
- Hawkman
- Hawkgirl and ...
plus
- Green Lantern, Sinestro, and Star Sapphire

Between the Green Lantern line, the Blackest Night line and hopefully a Brightest Day line, hopefully we will see figures.

of these, Mera tops my list of most wanted.

This a really hard one for me. For sure a White Lantern Sinestro, a Boston Brand, and Mera. Max Lord holds no appeal for me as a figure. (Although I loved the character, his death actually meant something at least in the context of Wonder Woman's character, and to bring him back through whatever means is problematic for me, to say the least.)

I can always use another really good Atom figure -- the upcoming Ed McGuinness style Atom and GL figures hold no interest for me; too stocky. I know that's McGuinness's style, but it just doesn't ring true for me in the context of the characters. A test pilot and a physicist should not be built like Russian weightlifters....

Surprised we haven't heard about a wave of figures for this event yet.

SDCC is right around the corner. I bet they announce two waves there.

Yeah but it will be something like Wave 1: New Aqualad, Alt. U Mera Hunter, Boston Brand, and Armored Atom or some such nonsense.
