Earlier in the week we showed you the Hal Jordan figure from Mattel’s Green Lantern Movie Masters line. Next in the AFi Archive we meet another member of the Green Lantern Corps, a blind member – Rot Lop Fan.
This is the first non-humanoid in the line and it looks like his basic form has tranfered over from the comics to the movie. He has more of the current John Stewart costume and they made him a little more insect-like with the extra arms. He comes with a limb for the movie Parallax Collect-and-Cannect figure, but he does not come with a lantern battery… or bell.
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.
In case you are unfamiliar with the story of Mr. Lop Fan here is a quick synopsis from the DC Comics Database:
Katma Tui was sent by the Guardians of the Universe to a lightless region of space known as the Obsidian Deeps, in order to recruit a new Green Lantern to protect that region of space. Despite the absolute darkness of the Deeps, Katma’s power ring led her unerringly to a completely fearless and honest resident of the Deeps: Rot Lop Fan. Unfortunately, when she offered him a power ring, she couldn’t explain to him how the ring works (by projecting beams of light, controlled by the wearer’s willpower and imagination), because Rot Lop Fan had no experience with or understanding of light, having no sense of sight.
After some consideration, Katma reshaped the power ring from a lantern into a bell, and describes the Green Lanterns as the F-Sharp Bell Corps and the ring’s powers in terms of sound instead of light. Having solved this dilemma, Katma leaves Rot Lop Fan to protect his people.
