We have quite a bit of new Green Lantern movie goodness to show you in the coming days. It’s my great hope that I’ll have time to post one each day this week as part of AFi’s 6th Anniversary (check out that snazzy new header Jason whipped up for it!)
First one out of the gate has to be our hero himself- Hal Jordan. I am also starting with the Movie Masters version as I think that is the GL line collectors are most exited for. The Movie Masters line is it’s own scale, similar to the figures we saw for the Batman Begins and Dark Knight Movie Masters line. It’s a smaller scale than the heroic 6" DC Universe Classics scale, these are not quite 6".
There will be 12 figures in the Green Lantern Movie Masters Line. Two will be Hal Jordan (masked and unmasked). You will need 11 of the figures to build the movie version of Parallax Collect-and-Connect figure (maskless Hal comes with a die cast ring in lieu of a Collect and Connect piece).
The first 6 figures in the mainline are: Hal Jordan, Rot Lop Fan, Tomar Re, Neutkeloi, Sinestro and Ismot Kol. Mattel recently revealed the upcoming Hector Hammond figure at Wonder Con. He will be in the mainline later in the year. Additionally there is a movie master preview G’hu figure in the second wave of GL Classics and a series of over-sized figures in scale to the 6" line starting with Green Man and later on Kilowog.
There will also be 4 TRU exclusive Two-Packs. Abin Sur will be the only exclusive figure to these packs, the others will be re-decos and reissues.
This Movie Masters Hal just comes with one accessory- his lantern battery. This is the exact same Hal as you will get in the TRU exclusive 2-packs, the only difference is the single carded MM Hal comes with his lantern battery, the 2-packs don’t. The 2-packs do come with a clear green stand for both figures that the single carded figures do not.
The articulation doesn’t seem consistent through the line. Granted I’ve only seen a small sampling of the MM line so far, but that was one thing I noticed. Of course some of that may be due to the fact that not all of the characters are humanoid shaped. Hal is sporting the following articulation: neck swivel, semi-ball jointed shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow with swivel, wrist swivel, waist swivel, t-crotch hips with side-swing, knees with swivel and ankles.
His ring hand is in a fist, his other hand is in a strange half claw-thing, which makes it a little tricky to hold his lantern.
These figures a set to hit stores on May 1st.
