Herocross Extends Hybrid Metal Justice League Invitation to Green Lantern
As far as Green Lanterns go, Hal Jordan may get all the headlines, but everyone knows Kyle Rayner is the greatest hero to ever don the the uniform. You could make a case for Guy Gardner if the person you were trying to convince had never heard of Green Lantern before, and John Stewart is in a league all his own, so nobody is even close to his tier in the conversation. You got all those other weird dudes like Mogo and Stel, and of course there's that one guy that will always be championing Kilowog over in the corner. Good for him.
Anyway, since Hal Jordan is the name that draws the most attention for reasons, he always seems to get preferential action figure treatment, too. Most of the rest of the Lanterns have at least been honored by DC Collectibles over the years, but when it comes to third party manufacturers, it's almost always Hal who gets the nod. Such is the case with Herocross' latest Hybrid Metal Figuration. He'll join the existing multiple Batmen, Superman, Robin and the Flash in the line, bringing the Justice League roster that much closer to completion.
Due out later this year, the HMF Green Lantern will come with multiple hands for posing, including a few different ring hands. With 20 points of articulation, there's plenty of movement to work with, though it doesn't look like there's much flexibility in the torso. That's probably due to the LED light in the chest that illuminates the Green Lantern symbol, and also powers Hal's eyes to glow. The power battery also includes an LED light, but there are no constructs to attach. That's not necessarily a big deal, but recent Green Lantern figures have come with them so frequently it's a bit odd to see a GL figure come without any imaginary weaponry.
The Herocross Hybrid Metal Figuration Green Lantern isn't currently up for pre-order anywhere just yet, but is expected to retail for ~$80 when it does release.
