AFI Scoop Week Reveal #6 – DC Universe Classics All-Stars Green Lantern

The Mystery figure!

A few weeks ago when Mattel was revealing their SDCC 2010 exclusives on G4’s Attack of the Show some keen eyed fans collectively asked themselves – "Hey!  What the heck is THAT?"   Thrown into the video piece, almost like an easter egg was a shiny Hal Jordan figure, sitting on the newly announced STARRO figure with a little Starro covering his face. 

The toy boards lit up with questions:

Was that a DCUC figure or an Infinite Heroes figure?

Was that the Hal from the recently announced Walmart DCUC Green Lantern 5-pack?

Was that our first look at the Green Lantern movie product? And is that Ryan Reynold’s face under that Starro?

 

Now the truth can be told!  What we saw was the Hal Jordan repaint that is part of the DCUC All-Stars.  The figure is a Toys R Us exclusive and will ship in solid case packs of the figure, much like the All-Star Batman repaint now shipping to TRU stores.  There will be 4 repainted figures in the line – Batman, Green Lantern, Flash and a 4th unanounced figure.  This is the costume that Hal is currently wearing in the Green Lantern/Blackest Night/Brightest Day comics.   This is the third costume for Hal we have gotten in the DCUC line, and we know there will be a fourth coming in the Walmart DCUC 5-pack (with gray temples)

So instead of a fleeting glimpse of Hal on your TV screen we have a full feature of this upcoming Green Lantern figure up now in the AFi Archives.

You can see the pictures of the figure both packaged and loose at the AFi archive.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
