The latest figure released in the “Arrow” action figure is Deathstroke. He’s the first villain offered in the first wave of action figures by DC Collectibles. Holiday Season 2014 saw the release of Oliver Queen (with totem) and Canary (Caity Lotz, not Katie Cassidy). Both figures featured incredibly lifelike and detailed sculpts by Gentle Giant Studios, and figure 3 of Deathstroke retains the same level of quality that DC Collectibles have become known for.
The action figure of Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke features the heavy armor clad and militaristic suit he wore during season 2. The figure is surprisingly menacing, especially compared to the lineup of hero characters.
Deathstroke stands at 6.75″ tall and is ready to do battle with his gun, sword, and knives. What makes the figure stand out is how well its been painted, a point of pride, especially since most action figures have trouble when it comes to this stage. DC Collectibles have a really outstanding line of action figures, ranging from their comics, television, and movie properties, and the “Arrow” wave is no different. If you’re a fan of the series, as I am, you really do not want to miss any of these action figures! Wave 1 is nearly complete, we are waiting on figure 4 of Arrow and more are on the way with the likes of Roy Harper, Diggle, and Felicity Smoak being added. Showcased at NY Toy Fair this year they should be released throughout this year.
“Arrow” Deathstroke action figure by DC Collectibles receives five out of five stars. The figure retails for $24.99 and will be available online at www.shopdcentertainment.com and at other fine comic books shops soon.
