It's pretty shocking how the best looking action figure of an orange-skinned Tamaran is of the evil Blackfire, and not her heroic sister Starfire. Starfire has had numerous toys made over the years, but none are particularly noteworthy. This Blackfire figure, however, is stunning (as is the entire Teen Titans line from 2004). Princess Komand'r is the older sister of the Teen Titans member Starfire who was denied her title through an unfortunate association to an invasion (and ensuing slaughter) on the day of her birth. Her people viewed her as bad luck (or even cursed). A lifetime of resentment by her people eventually culminated in the creation of a powerful young woman with a huge grudge against her sister, her family, her people, and her planet. Evil sisters are just as good as evil doppelgangers in my opinion - and they always make the best villains. This whole Teen Titans line is gorgeous. Blackfire was sculpted by the amazing Jonathan Matthews (just like the Wonder Girl reviewed back in February). It always comes down to the sculptor. Let's check out this de-crowned princess below!
Typical DC Direct articulation. Good for a few standing poses, but nothing groundbreaking. My Blackfire has a damaged left knee that's hanging on by a thread so I wasn't about to pose her in any lunges for this review.
Here are some images of Blackfire from the comics. Her look has changed over the years, but she pretty consistently has a cape and a silver & black color scheme. She also bares a lot less skin then her baby sister.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
