Given that they're completely identical with the exception of their favorite colors and pretty interchangeable in terms of personality, I know a lot of people out there can have a pretty difficult time telling Donald Duck's three nephews apart. I myself used to have the same difficulty, but then I came across a useful mnemonic that --- while it might sound pretty vague --- has legit helped me to remember ever since I came across it: Dewey is blue, like the dew, Louie is green like a leaf, and that leaves Huey to have a bright red hue.
Now you can tell them apart, which is good, because it would be a shame if you picked up the pretty amazing looking box set from Hero Cross, which is up right now for pre-order, and didn't know which was which.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a weird-looking crowd, which makes a lot of sense when you consider that they're teenagers, mutants, ninjas and turtles, all of which are traditionally pretty weird-looking groups. They've got the weird shaped heads, the blocky three-fingered hands, and then there's the part where they'er wearing clothes, but only belts, elbowpads and kneepads. But what if --- and bear with me here because it's a pretty radical idea --- they looked a little weirder?
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.
It looks like Play Imaginative isn't the only Hong Kong toymaker putting a die-cast spin on DC Comics heroes. 86 Hero is releasing cute 5.5" tall takes on Batman and Superman soon as part of its Hybrid Metal Figures line. Both die-cast/plastic hybrid figures will sport 20 points of articulation, along with LED light-up eyes. Superman is expected to arrive in November for around $90, with Batman arriving one month later in December for around $100.
