DC Universe Classics - Green Lantern Wave 1 Preview

DC is gearing up for the big release of their new franchise movie, Green Lantern.  So be prepared to see a whole bunch of GL related toys.  Mattel and DC have decided to sort of do an offspring set from the DC Universe Classics toy line and start up Green Lantern toy line which will feature various characters from the Green Lantern comics in an effort to bump up awarness for the movie (i assume).  So lets take a look at the very first Green Lantern wave which is just starting to come out at retailers near you.

First up, from the very popular "Darkest Night" series, we have the Black Lantern Abin Sur

Next is Mongul.  This figure appears to just be a re-painted version of the 2 pack which included Mongul and Cyborg Superman (which was previously released in the DC Superheroes toy line).  Although it does appear they gave him a yellow ring for this variant. 

Next is Sinestro Corps, Yellow Lantern Maash.  He has interchangable hands and head to turn him into Low.  Or... could just buy the Low figure (which also includes the head ad hands for Maash).

Next is the Manhunter Robot who comes with a pretty big Green Lantern accessory 

Another Blackest Night character....and a pretty good one....Black Hand.

And finally, we have Green Lantern Kyle Rayner who appears to come with a green lantern and a giant sword accessory. 

Drumroll please........your Collect N Connect, DC Universe Classics Green Lantern Wave 1 action figure is........Sinestro Corps, Arkillo.

So there you have it folks.  That is the first DC Universe Classics Green Lantern Wave 1 set.  Not too shabby.  Rayner, Manhunter and Black Hand are must gets more me.  Not sure that i really need another Mongul

What do you think?  Be sure to vote on my pole for which DCUC GL action figures you want the most from this wave.  (all polls are on the left hand side menu).
