Crap on a cruch!! I just saw a picture of these yesterday and I have been freaking out. I stopped following coverage on SDCC a few weeks ago because it was making me grumpy and then they release this news!
Hal Jordan and Bruce Wayne are the only two figures I have collected consistantly as stand alones. This exclusive is a dream come true and a nightmare... as I will never be able to talk my wife into $300 or $400 for this set. All the minimate news was bad enough but seeing these makes me really bummed about not making it to SDCC this year.
The mold looks much like the Hal from Superman/Batman. I love the inclusion of the rings!!!
If anyone is feeling altruistic I would love any extra Hal they can find. Happy to paypal cost + shipping + time. I have a few exclusives from SDCC 2007 that I'd be happy to throw in as well. I'd love Blue, Red, Orange, Yellow or even Green.. though I think that may end up easier to find after the Con.
Interesting note: Indigo Hal would have been interesting but my impression on their story is they are more tribal and maybe you have to be born into it.. and maybe they didn't want to make a staff.
I'm glad they didn't mess with the Star Sapphires costume on Hal.. and last, a Black Hand Hal could have been cool too.
