The Hot Toys figures from The Dark Knight trilogy got me jonesing for 1/6 scale figures from the DC Comics. And while Play Imaginative’s Super Alloy figures captured my attention for a while, it wasn’t until I got the Batman and Superman from Sideshow Collectibles’ DC line that I found something that really satisfied the itch.
The latest in the line, the DC Comics Green Lantern DC Comics Sixth Scale Figure, is now available to pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles. It’s Hal Jordan, my favorite of the Lanterns, and he comes with interchangeable hands and boots (for standing or flying), a power construct, and lantern.
Considering how prices dropped on the Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and Radioactive Man exclusive at Target, I thought about waiting to order. But I think this might sell a bit more briskly, given the stronger ties to the Agents of Shield TV show and the Avengers movies. Plus, the only repeat here is Nick Fury, who was last available a few years back in the Wal-Mart line. Coulson and Hill have not had figures before and are completely new.
Thanks to Paul again for the heads-up, and happy shopping!
Sideshow Collectibles is hosting a particularly tempting giveaway for the Hot Toys “Bank Robber” Joker from opening sequence of The Dark Knight. This is Hot Toys’ second iteration of this version of the Heath Ledger Joker – it features improved paint apps on the Joker head sculpt, a new alternate head featuring the clown mask, and better fitting clothes, among other improvements. It was a “Toy Fair” exclusive last year, meaning it was available at various conventions internationally and exclusively through Sideshow here in the States.
Now that I’ve got a few of these on the AFP YouTube channel, would you guys give me some feedback? When I watch video reviews of figures, most of the time I mute the sound, and let the figures speak for themselves. But what do you like? Would you prefer some music, or even some commentary? What else would you like to see? Let me know.
