DC Comics, DC Direct and Graphitti Designs are teaming up to produce what is sure to be one of the hottest to get exclusives at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con. For the first time ever, “Green Lantern fans will be able to collect Hal Jordan not only as a Green Lantern, but as a member of the Red, Orange, Blue and Yellow Corps as well.” (link) This has got to be one of the best ideas for a SDCC exclusive The Blot’s heard of in a very long time, and DC Direct and Graphitti Designs are really going to make collectors work to collect the entire Hal Jordan Blackest Night five figure set.
Not only can you only purchase these Green Lantern Hal Jordan action figures at San Diego Comic Con 2009, but in order to purchase each Lantern Corps color fans will have to return to the Graphitti Designs booth (#2315) each and every day of Comic Con starting on Wednesday, July 22nd (aka Preview Night). This is because only one Hal Jordan colorway will be available each day of SDCC.

Every Hal Jordan action figure comes with its own lantern, a wearable power ring customized for to Corps, and comes in its own four-color box. Each Hal Jordan Blackest Night action figure is available starting on its respective day and will continue to be on sale until it is sold out. But, Graphitti Designs and DC Direct are limiting purchases to 2 figures per customer. I am assuming this means 2 figures per colorway per customer, but we won’t know for sure until the start of SDCC. The price for these extremely limited edition figures is currently unknown. (via IGN)
