Expect to see a lot of Green Lantern toys on the store shelves as the movie draws ever closer. Mattel is showing off the new Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern figure (over at Daily Blam) and it doesn’t look terrible.
At least they didn’t simply rip the head off the DCUC Green Lantern, give it a paint job, and pop a Reynolds head on it.
And speaking of Green Lantern and the DCUC figures, Blackest night is appearing in Wave 17 of the popular series. Take the jump for a look at all those figures, including the Black Lantern Hal Jordan that was all the rage some months ago when it was a comic book convention exclusive.
Wave 17 will consist of Orange Lantern Luthor, Yellow Lantern Scarecrow, White Lantern Hal Jordan (with Black Lantern Variant), Violet Lantern Wonder Woman, Blue Lantern Flash and Indigo Lantern Atom. Together they will create a Collect and Connect modern Anti-Monitor!
And to answer the inevitable question, we did look into Red Lantern Mera. The only way to do her right is with a 100% tool and for that cost we can do 4 other figures. So while she did not make the cut this time around, we do know fans want complete sets and we are committed to one day getting her out there!
