Figure Friday: Blackest Night Arisia

Published on March 5th, 2010

If you have been reading here at the site or listening to the podcasts for a while, you know I love the Green Lanterns. In fact, there is one sexy lantern I would like to get to know if I was part of the DC Universe. I’m talking about Arisia. But what is she like as a figure? This week we are looking at Green Lantern Arisia Blackest Night figure from wave 3. She is in the same wave as Larfleeze, Aquaman and Star Sapphire.

Package Description
After replacing her father as the Green Lantern of Sector 2815, Arisia of Graxos IV had a long career as a member of the Corps.

Believed to have perished in the Emerald Twilight, Hal Jordan discovered her alive on the Manhunter home world – used as a power source for the Cyborg Superman in service to the renewed Anti-Monitor. Arisia rejoined the Corps, continuing to represent the Green Power of Will in the Blackest Night.

Appearance
In the photos she looks cute and sexy, but when you get up close to her, it’s a different story. Her paint is bad on her face, and she looks like she’s been hit by a truck a few times. Why is it so fucking hard to make a female sculpture that does not look like shit? Arisia is almost as tall as John Stewart from wave 2 in the Blackest Night figures, which I find very weird since I picture her as the same size as Raven from Teen Titans.

I will say that DC Direct did a great job on her tits, and the paint job on her Skirt and boots. It is one of those sharp metallic green paints that works so well when you’re doing any kind of Lantern figures.

Yeah she has the issue that a lot of female sculptures have. Her arms look like she is a junkie who has been shooting up heroin for the past 15 years. Also I’m not sure what expression I’m seeing at when I look at her.

Poseability
There is a lot flawed with this figure, such as her head does not go up or down. She has ball shoulders, hinge elbows, hips or knees, and this figures articulation is basically worthless and a waste of my time.

Final Judgment 0/10

SAVE YOUR MONEY and go buy your self some ice cream, because everyone loves ice cream. She also comes with a stand that has the Green Lantern logo, plus a lantern. But that’s not a big deal when this figure is so bad that if I had a dog I would give to him or her as a chew toy.
