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.
While I think I’ll ultimately end up ordering, I’m on the fence right now. It’s not that I mind the nod to the modern costume (no green shorts here), it’s more of the material used that’s distracting to me. The textured material doesn’t hug the figure as well as the traditional spandex does on Bats and Supes. But this is still at the prototype stage, so I am expecting them to improve the fit before production.
