« on: July 22, 2005, 02:00 PM »
This thread is a place for Jeff to talk about how much he likes Green Lantern!

I'll kick it off with this awesome picture of the upcoming Salakk from the DC Direct Green Lantern Series 2!




Smokin!

Stay tuned as I will eventually posts some pictures of my awesome Green Lantern Collection next week!

Why would you bother starting a thread like this ::)  Don't these fit just as well with the DC Direct figures? 

Any female GL's out there?   :P

Looking forward to seeing your collection Jeff.  I've seen you talk about your Lantern focus only collection, and that's always what I kind of wanted to do.  Of course, I always get sucked into going further into lines for some reason :).  I tried with a Spidey collection, and then joined the Marvel Legends ranks, getting my favorite characters from my childhood.  That's branched off a little further in some cases too.  The only DC Direct figure I have so far is Supes, and I've thought about focusing in on Superman and his world.  It would be nice if I could keep it in control and just have "one shelf" with things all together like that.  Anyways, look forward to seeing what your collection looks like.  So, do you read the GL comic as well these days?

Let's see thee was Fatality, a GL-killer who hunted GL for revenge:


And GL Villianess Star Sapphire:


But no 7" scale female GLs though.

Absolutely.  I don't read too many comics anymore, but Geoff Johns is one of my favorite writers.  When they brought him on to re-launch GL and bring back Hal, it was like 10 years of bad DC History disappearing.  The finally figured out that going from 3600 to 1 GL was a bad move, they slowly added John and Guy back, now they're moving to a 7200 member GL Corps in September!  Woot!

As a kid, the alien GLs were always so cool to me (probably the ANH Cantina Scene to thank for that ;)).  I'm sooooo glad they are being introduced to the comics again!

I think you need to get a GL tatoo like that goofy WWE wrestler The Hurricane.  That's dedication, man.

Here you go:



Green Lantern Series I Figure: Hal Jordan - $11.99 plus shipping 

He's a great figure, I just picked him up 2 weeks ago when I purchased Kilowog and Parallax.   :)
