DC Universe Action League Review: Green Lantern Hal Jordan with Cannon Construct

without comments

DC Universe Action League Green Lantern Hal Jordan with Cannon Construct
Out of the blue, the new wave of the DC Universe Action League (which in retrospect is a terrible name when trying to Google these figures) showed up at my local Wal-Mart… and already on clearance. This sixth wave was originally shown off at Toy Fair 2013, but something tells me Mattel wasn’t thrilled about making an entire series dedicated to Flashpoint, only to have DC introduce the New 52.

Green Lantern Movie Action League Review: Shackling of Krona

without comments

In the final Green Lantern movie Action League pack, I realized they never included a Parallax for the Lanterns to fight. In fact, of nine figures release only one of them is a bad guy. Well, Sinestro will be a bad guy but I’m not counting that. Read the rest of this entry »

Green Lantern Movie Action League Review: Origin of Fear

without comments

The second of the Green Lantern movie Action League packs really makes me wonder who is in change of character selection at Mattel because I don’t think anyone has been clamoring for a Green Man. Read the rest of this entry »

Green Lantern Movie Action League Review: First Day on Oa

with one comment

It took me ages to find the Green Lantern Action League 3-packs the first time around, so I assumed the second back of movie-centric sets never got made as well. Then one day on a whim, I was browsing eBay and managed to find all of them shipped for cheaper then it would cost me to drive to the nearest Wal-Mart and hope they had them in stock. When I know it costs me $6 just in tolls to go toy shopping, online prices feel more reasonable. Read the rest of this entry »

Green Lantern Action League Review: Max Charge

Part of me still can’t believe that I picked up this set simply for a single repaint and two repacks. I don’t even like Green Lantern that much! Read the rest of this entry »

Green Lantern Action League Review: Training on Oa

with one comment

The first of the Green Lantern Action League packs was hardly exciting, especially since all the figures were straight repacks. At least this one offers up on minor repaint, one repack and one previously unreleased figure.

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!

Green Lantern Action League Review: Green Lantern Corps

without comments

When the Green Lantern movie originally came out (I still haven’t seen it), Wal-Mart was supposed to get some exclusive Green Lantern Action League three-packs. The first wave was based on the comics and was simply an excuse for Mattel to re-release a bunch of figures for a cheap way to cash in. Of course, it took me four months before I finally found these figures in stores! Read the rest of this entry »

DC Universe Action League Review: Hal Jordan & Saint Walker

without comments

After what seems like months, I’ve finally been able to track down the latest wave of the DC Universe Action League. In a toy collecting world where a single six inch figure will set you back $20, there’s something nice about getting a pair of figures for cheap. Read the rest of this entry »

DC Universe Action League Review: White Lantern Sinestro & Green Lantern Hal Jordan

with one comment

With the Batman the Brave and Bold Action League effectively dead, Mattel wasted no time in reviving the brand into a much grander line: the DC Universe Action League! Grabbing characters from multiple lines and not just those who showed up in a single cartoon, this new Action League is exceptional!
