Who is Jake Ellis #1

The Heroclix DC 75th Anniversay set has arrived! This is a great set with some stellar characters. This set includes plenty of characters from the various Lantern Corps, as well as classic versions of DC's finest. On top of that, there are 10 White Lanterns (these are rare) included in the set and a mail away offer for a White Lantern Sinestro.
I've been impressed with this set so far. It appears to have a nice number of powerful characters mixed with some lightweight, yet playable characters. There are also a lot of fun sculpts too; ranging from Beast Boy with his Cheetah, Grizzly, and T-Rex forms to Bane breaking Batman's back. One of my personal favorites is the Red Lantern Guy Gardner with his chainsaw. Wizkids does a nice job of making certain scenes from comics come to life which makes it a lot of fun for avid comic readers.
If you've thought about playing the game, this is a nice set to start with. If you just like collecting the figures, you're taken care of on that end as well. Either way, we have booster boxes in stock now.
