Blue Devil DC Direct action figure

I got my Blue Devil DC Direct action figure a couple weeks ago, but this is the first chance I’ve had to write about it.  The figure looks great!  Below you’ve got a picture of the Blue Devil packaging.  This figure is part of the History of the DC Universe series of figures, all based upon George Perez artwork.  While Perez is a master artist, it would have been nice if the figure had been based on the Paris Cullins drawings.  Oh well, I guess I should just be happy that we got a new Blue Devil figure at all.

The next picture is Blue Devil out of the package.  Of course I took him out of the package.  I’m not a collector of toys, I’m a guy who wants to play with his toys.  The details and colors on this figure are really great; the horns, the earring, the devil design on the outfit, the goatee, etc.  I especially love the trident.  They did a really good job getting the trident’s shape correct.  The only disappointing aspect of the figure are the red eyes.  While I’m sure Blue Devil had red eyes at some point or another, his eyes were a normal white for 99.9% of his appearances.

Finally, the back of the package had little blurbs on each figure in the series.  Below is the blurb about Blue Devil:

You should be able to find the DC Direct Blue Devil figure in your local comic shop.

    How is the scale of this guy compared to DC Universe Classic figures? If they’re in the same scale he’d look perfect with those!

    Good question. I think it’s pretty close. I’m out of town right now, but I’ll check next week when I’m back home.

    I agree about the eyes, they freak me out a bit.
