Spring & Summer Movie Figures!!!

I am excited, but nervous, about the upcoming Green Lantern movie. True, the fellow I wanted to portray Green Lantern is the guy they got, but the previews have me cringing a bit. The first figures have made an appearance & lucky you, I've got links & info on them! The one you see above is of Hal Jordan, played by Van Wilder himself, Ryan Reynolds (woo-hoo!). The sculpt is pretty good on this 6" figure. Each figure comes with a build & connect piece that eventually forms a complete separate figure.

Next we have Tomar, a member of the Green Lantern Corp (above) and Nautkeloi (below).

They are all produced by Mattel & should run around $16.99 each. A little pricey. You should be able to find them at all your local giant corporation stores like Wal-Mart & Target sometime in May, but don't forget, your local comics shop is usually always willing to order them for you. The more of you that ask them, the more they are likely to order.

Another cool collectible will be the Green Lantern Movie small busts. These are highly detailed & will run you around $75.00. The one below is of the loveable Kilowog. Kilowog measures approximately 7 1/4-inches wide x 6 2/3-inches tall x 4-inches long and is packaged in a 4-color box. Limited edition of 4,000 pieces.

Another big superhero movie hitting the big screen this Spring/Summer is Captain America.

These figures (one pictured above) are pretty highly detailed figures with excellent sculpts from Gentle Giant. They haven't been finalized yet, but expect the finished product to look very similar. Diamond Select is the company that snagged the rights to make these & they have set their price right around $18.99. I didn't find a size, but it appears to be the same size as the McFarlane lines which ran around 5 1/2 to 6" tall. They are also rumored to include a partial diorama that will fit together.

There will also be Captain America mini-mates.
