Another quick Green Lantern question

Filed under: justice league, meta — Tom Bondurant @ 12:38 am
Everyone remember the Justice League bookshelf?

Wouldn’t ‘cha know, the Green Lantern figure has suffered a career-ending knee injury, and I’ll be needing a new one.

However, thanks to the good folks at Mattel, I now have a choice. Do I replace the “Hard Traveling” Hal, thereby keeping that set of Hal/Ollie/Dinah intact; or do I go for the more articulated Mattel version? (If it makes a difference, I am planning to get a Mattel Aquaman as well at some point.) I don’t think availability is an issue, since I got both Ollie and Dinah off teh Ebay.


[EDIT] P.S. If you have any preference for a particular John Stewart figure, I’d love to hear it. (The Guy and Kyle figures may have to wait until a future League expansion.)


  1. I say go for the newer version. I do like the Hard Travelin’ Hal but ever forward, like the shark.

  2. My god, I swear the bookcase in my bedroom looks exactly like that!Yeah, go with the newer version, definitely.

  3. Ooh, the new one. Posability aside, the Mattel one has a better head sculpt. (And you’ll love the new Aquaman.)
