  1. Overall it looks like it has potential…

    But /REALLY/? Did they really have to go for the ‘magical-girl’ type of transformation like that?

  2. Good animation and start, but I agree with Tecrogue that the transformation sequence is wrong for this genre. Almost expected Hal to have a wand and skirt when done. :( And what is with Abin Sur’s race change? Was he just “horny” for Hal?

  3. “And what is with Abin Sur’s race change? Was he just “horny” for Hal?”

    I think they wanted to avoid people confusing him with Sinestro. Which is fine by me. He’s such a minor character that the change is justified, and it wouldn’t hurt to have some of the GLs look obviously alien. Alan Davis did concept art of just that for the comics where even Katma Tui was redesigned to look less humanoid. While I don’t know if going that route with Sinestro’s race — of which Tui is a member of — is the best way to do it, guys like Ch’p and G’nort would certainly benefit from it.

  4. I think you are right, Greenjeans. I just hate change for the sake of change. Been following Hal since the late 1970s and didn’t think the new design for the first ET that Hal met was merited.

  5. Great so far, with the exception of the transformation sequence. I was half-expecting Hal to shout out, “GUREEN RANUTURUNO, HENSHIN!”
