Wave 4 - We saw these at Toy Fair, and now they are solicited.

Translucent GL Hal Jordan
GL Arkkus Chummuck
Red Lantern Guy Gardner
GL Stel

I think this is the 2nd translucent Hal we've seen over the years. I like that they are extending the GL Corps, but I'm not sure how many more I need.

Will this version of Stel be far apart enough and different enough from the DCUC version for people to buy both?

I may preorder RL Guy, but that's probably it. Some of the others may end up as impulse buys at my LCS.
Series 5 is the one I'm waiting for. Guy Gardner and Soranik Natu! And isn't Warth in there as well?

The other translucent Hal was a Toy Fare exclusive so I don't know if that many folks picked one up.

I will be buying three out of the four from this series. There is NO WAY I am buying that piece of crap "Power Glow Hal". I wonder if that is a placeholder for another character. Remember in Series 3 of Green Lantern that Sinestro Corps Sinestro replace this same toy in that wave?

The DC direct website has them listed for release in November

Wave 4 - Nov 2
BN Box Set - Nov 9
GL 5 - Dec 14

But it's DC Direct, I'm sure they'll be delayed, right?

Thanks for the dates. This is probably a noob question, but what is BN Box Set?

I hate that box set for a couple of reasons 1) Munnk is the only character Im interested in so it sucks not being able to get him just by himself and 2) With Hal and Fatality just being repaints there is no reason why Beetle and Munnk couldnt have been released separately, to me those are the figures that people will want the most.

The best bet with a boxed set is to try to find someone to split it with you. Years ago, I split the Darksied and Orion pack with someone so I could get just Orion.

We know Wave 5 is:

Blue Lantern Warth
GL Soranik Natu
GL Guy Gardner
Sinestro

Pictures: http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/gall ... 67-160.php

Who would you want MOST for a 6th wave? May I suggest the following?

1. YL Slush - This character - composed of the skeletons of multiple just screams "cool figure" to me.

2. RL Vice - We need more Red Lanterns. I know he's gone, but he had such a cool visual. If not Vice, Bleeze.

3. The Weaponer - from the recent GLC arc, complete with shield draped with White Lantern Net accessory.

4. Star Sapphire Miri

Or do you have enough multi colored lanterns and would prefer DC Direct put its efforts into another line?

I'd very happily buy that line up.

I've long said that I want to someday show off a collection of every GL that ever existed, so why not all the other colors as well?

As long as there is a GL wave 1 or 2 times a year, and DC Direct skips around the rest of the DC Universe for the other 10 months, I'll still be here as a customer.

Has anyone found pics of the new Sinestro figure that is coming out as part of wave 4 or 5 (I can't believe I forget which). Even on DC Direct it is still blacked out so as not to reveal anything in the comic books which further lends credence to the rumor that Sinestro will be re-joining the Green Lantern Corp and taking over Sector 2814 as his base of operations ...

That would be a very cool story point, but it again brings up the question of why would the Guardians keep 4 members of the same race on the same planet as Green Lanterns?

If Sinestro's figure is based upon a plot point, then holding off its reveal to avoid spoiling the plot makes sense.
