Mattel is slowly but surely gearing up for the year of Green Lantern, and it kicks off with this new line of mass market action figures. Green Lantern Classics Wave 1, the first official spin-off of Mattel’s DC Universe Classics, line consists of 6 figures and one larger “Collect and Connect” figure.
Wave 1 includes Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, Mongul, Black Hand, a Manhunter robot, Sinestro Corps Low and Mash, and Black Lantern Abin Sur. The Low and Mash 2-pack is actually just one figure that comes with interchangeable heads and two sets of hands, and the Collect and Connect figure is Sinestro Corps Arkillo.
Is it me, or is Green Lantern Classics Wave 1 all about the villains!?! What’s surprising about this set is that it only includes one Green Lantern, and it’s Kyle Rayner. This is pretty surprising since The Blot’s pretty sure he won’t be showing up in the film. One explanation for this is Mattel will also be releasing a corresponding 2-pack featuring Hal Jordan and Sinestro. I guess this way fans can get the two “main” Green Lantern figures in one fell swoop.
Green Lantern Classics Wave 1 action figures can be purchased individually here for $16.99 or as a full case of all 6 figures for $119.99 here.
