Storm Collectibles Offers up a Big and Bad Lobo Figure
He’s every nihilistic teen’s favorite DC character, and a guy who often surfaces as one of Superman’s most tangible threats. One might say that if the Zack Snyder cinematic universe had one face, it would be Lobo, the last Czarnian. And he’s so un-PC that a large percentage of his action figures have been convention exclusives. Well, not this time. Storm Collectibles is ready to render him as he appears in the DC Injustice: Gods Among Us video game, and they pull no punches with this Lobo figure. He shows up big, bad, and ready to fight. Not that fighting is much of a challenge when a person is indestructible.
The $99 figure comes with three head sculpts, two hairstyles, shotgun, cigar, and chain hook. His jacket comes with a message that dares comic fans to take offense. His skull belt buckle and ammo belt are recreated in loving detail.
From the official description: LOBO was born on the utopian planet of Czarnia. Unfortunately for them, the foul-mouth brawler’s idea of a perfect world is one covered in bruises and blood. He wiped out his entire civilization and made himself the last of his people. Considering his name means “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it” in his native tongue, perhaps they shouldn’t have been too surprised. Lobo took his predilection for murder and mayhem along with his rocket-fueled motorcycle and went on to become the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.
Yes, on earth “Lobo” just means wolf, as in the lone kind. Czarnia has some messed-up linguistics.
