I was reading some Toyguru answers about MM GL and he told about some new and different articulations, like jaw and eye. Well, we already saw the jaw articulation on Isamot Kol, but the eye (he told eye, and not eyes) articulation could be used for at least 3 GLs, Larvox, M'Dahna and Medphyll. I'm really curious about that one.

There's what TG said about the MM GL articulation:

"Some of the figures in the MM GL line have new articulation methods we are trying out for the first time including jaws, eye and even hidden articulation."

Does anyone else think they should achieve mastery over the manufacture of BASIC articulation first?

When Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was being made (and even up to its release), fans were concerned it was going to suck (humor? whales? time travel? OH NO! :roll: )


IIRC, its still the highest grossing Trek film. I'll wait to see for myself about the GL movie instead of relying on Interwebz nerds on poopshoot.com. :wink:

I saw this picture and thought you were responding to the Poopshoot.com comment.

He is neither. That is just an image of him from the film

MoMoney posted a Matty link in another thread. I found this there.

Green Lantern. Both kids and collectors will find tons of cool Green Lantern toys on the shelves this spring, including Green Lantern Movie Masters® (Wave 1 includes Hal Jordan, Tomar Re, Rot Lop Fan, and Naut Ke Loi) and six new Wal-Mart exclusive 2-packs that feature 3 ¾” figures paired with a Guardian of the Universe

Here's a Toy Fair Video Interview/Presentation of the new Green Lantern toys, mostly showcasing the 3.75 inch assortmant and how the Battle Shifters work. It's a pretty cheesy presentation, but a pretty good look at what's coming.

Godawful presentation.

But credit where credit's due, I see a lot of potential in that Battle Shifters concept, maximizing the amount and variety of constructs there can be. Almost makes me want to collect the 3" figures. Almost.

So was there ever a list of the 3.75 inch figures anywhere? or just scattered pics?

here's another really cheesy interview/presentation of the toys featuring Scott Neitlich this time:

http://www.welcometocoastcity.org/green-lantern-news/2011/2/14/green-man-cometh.html#comments

Here's a pretty good photo gallery of the basic figure assortment:

http://dailyblam.com/news/2011/02/13/mattels-green-lantern-movie-action-figure-line-galius-zed-voz-krona-revealed

For the 3.75 inch figures, it looks like we're getting
Tomar-re
Sinestro
Hal Jordan (with Hyper Hammer)
Abin Sur
Guardian (or "Fallen Guardian" as it says on his package...he's in yellow chains?)
G'Hu
Voz ( I think!? The big hairy guy)
"Max Charge" Kilowog (all green version)
The guy with the big head that I can't identify (help?)
It looks like there's a larger Battle Shifters set that comes with a normal Kilowog.

In the video, Scott says they will be in stores May 1. I'll probably getting the basic figures, though I'm disappointed in the articulation and I'll mostly wait for them to hit the discount stores. I'm probably skipping the Movie Masters, but they do look pretty good. I'll probably spring for Rot Top Fan.
