DC Collectibles recently released the latest wave in their “DC Comics Super Villains” line of action figures. Among them is the stunning Black Manta action figure based off of Ivan Reis’s DC Comics New 52 re-design of the character from the pages of “Aquaman.” The sculpt was beautifully done by Jean St. Jean.
It has been said before that Black Manta is one of the coolest designs in comics and St. Jean’s sculpt exemplifies that. Manta’s trademark sleek black bodysuit and over-sized diving helmet with giant red eyes are true to form. The additional line work that is the signature of the New 52 re-designed costumes transferred perfectly, adding texture to this simple design. Speaking of texture, the eyes are even sporting some, that is the level of detail put into this sculpt.
