Jeff are you going to spring the $$$ for a Hal Jordan JLU figure?

Yeah... only I'll buy it in a few years after Mattel finally pisses off the JLA/DC Collectors like they did to the He-Man Collectors or any incarnation of Batman really.

Eventually someone will dump their colection on the cheap out of frustration OR Mattel will re-issue him.  Either way, It'll be a lot cheaper than it is now...  ;)

Hey Jeff, isn't that 13" collectors Green Lantern out now?  Have you picked it up yet?

Sounds like DC Direct will be starting to release DC minimates now, according to this article at ToyNewsI.com, with some pics available here.  Looks like at least one to pick up off the bat Jeff :)

I have a case of all the dc minimates coming in so if your interested I'm sure I could hook you up.  Hal is in the first set.  I just got the new green lantern series 2 in yesterday as well.  I gotta just go pick it up.  I hope my series 1 showed as well.  Like Jaff I'm also a big fan of GL but so far my collection isn't as big.  But I didn't see kingdom come GL in there. Oh and as well I do have series 1 who who from dc.  The GL figure in that one is when Hal first gets the ring (passing of the tourch kinda thing)  if you like marvel figure factory you'll love dc who who.  Smaller but better looking figures.

I just picked up the Hal Jordan minimate. I hope they do the entire corps eventually, at least most of them.  ;D

Just wanted to bump this up for another Green Lantern figure, this one from the upcoming season of "The Batman" cartoon on KidsWB - another one for the collection Jeff?

In December, DC Direct gives us... G'nort!   :o



I never thought he'd make the cut for a figure... I like Green Lanterns and everything, but he may be the first "never before made" character I pass on.   :P

Also, December gives us a new box set with a new Tomar Re, Abin Sur, and battle-damaged Manhunter!  :)

And a teaser image for Blackest Night Series 2!   ;D  ;D



Looks like another GL John Stewart, a member of the Indigo Corps, Kryb (creepy!), and another Black Lantern (J'onn?).

Sooo, sooo, sooooooo good.  :)

Depending on how their scale is with DCUC, I might pick some of them up.  Definitely interested in some of the different Lantern Corps.  Hopefully one of the Red Lanterns come packed with Rage Kitty.

Kryb is beyond creepy, especially in the book.  The last two issues of GLC she was particularly nasty.

And they went with Saint Walker's first look, instead of the tentacle look he's been sporting the last couple of issues.  Wonder if that will change.

I won't spoil who the first Black Lantern is supposed to be for anyone who doesn't know (based on series 1 solicits, he hasn't been revealed yet in the books), but I can't wait until Blackest Night starts.  GL and GLC are two of the best books DC has going for them now.

Good idea, that kitty is evil...  it's be nice to get him as a pack-in someplace.

Kryb is beyond creepy, especially in the book.  The last two issues of GLC she was particularly nasty.

Yeah, that GLC arc is probably what landed her in S2 instead of someone like Arkillo or Mongul.  She's creep, that's for sure - makes me wonder if she'll come with any "babies" to stick in that cage of hers.   :-X

And they went with Saint Walker's first look, instead of the tentacle look he's been sporting the last couple of issues.  Wonder if that will change.

I have heard that he may end up with a retooled head to reflect that... no guarantees though.

I can't wait until Blackest Night starts.  GL and GLC are two of the best books DC has going for them now.

Agreed.  I can't believe how this story arc has been building since Rebirth... all the pieces just keep getting lined up, I just hope they can carry the momentum past BN and into 2010 and beyond.


edit:
Just saw these at Fwoosh!

SPOILERS FOR BLACKEST NIGHT, so don't click unless you want to be spoiled!!!
