With a little bit of birthday cash left over,i decided to snag up a GL figure to go along with my MOS Superman and DKR Batman.I could have gone and played it safe with a normally outfitted GL,but opted to go with this awesome repaint!As far as i know this version is neither comic or movie accurate,but no worries here.In my universe,this is “bad ass” Green Lantern!The paint mixed with translucent plastic and dabs of glitter make this truly unique figure stand out nicely.A more menacing Hal Jordan.I also dig the glossy green mask on this particular head sculpt as opposed to the usual flat green that was used on most of the other movie figures.Enjoy the pics!
Zod is another awesome little piece of plastic from the 3 3/4 inch line of Superman MOS figures.There is something special about these figures.While they are not super articulated,they are durable,sharply painted figures that aesthetically hit the mark.Zod sports the cloth cape,which i just love on action figures, and comes with a super sized weapon that can detach to become a kick ass sword and blaster.Now that i’ve managed to subdue the stranglehold NECAS voodoo had over me,i can start to focus on 3 3/4 figs again.I’m hoping they release a single carded version of Jor-El and the rest of Zods henchmen!
I must say that i did have a great B-Day overall,spending it with the fam at an amazing little out of the way park over the weekend.I also received a little bit of birthday cash and decided to pick up a couple figures that had been on my radar,and then check out the local hobby shop as well as Toys R Us to see what they had.Now,i’m not the type of collector that goes out of the way to find what i’m looking for.Usually if Wal Mart doesn’t have something then i might check out the local Target or nearby pharmacies but that’s about it.I rarely go to TRU or hobby shops for that matter.Today i decided to go against the grain and traverse crappy little “under construction” roads to see what TRU had to offer seeing as how the Comic shop had pretty much nothing in the way of action figures…although i was impressed at how they were able to make their floors so sticky.Anyways,TRU disappointed with a bunch of wave 1 Retaliation Joes,hoards of 6 inch figures and overpriced playsets.A big W.A.G.(
Waste Of Gas)(Waste-A-Gas) My bad 😦 Luckily my trusty Wal-Mart still had 600 rows of Superman MOS figures left as well as the 3 3/4 Drak Knight figures that just refuse to leave the party.And some may argue that Wal-Mart also has sticky floors and i would say to them “True,but they also have the best deal on single rolls of GV toilet paper.”
