New Green Lantern Movie Action Figures
Who is the silhouetted character?
Blastr recently reported on these wonderous looking Green Lantern figures that should be out in time for the film. The pictures will also be released in time for the film. From left to right: Medphyll, NautKeLoi, and Ch'p. These characters will most likely be in the film, along with characters we know have will appear: Hal Jordan, Abin Sur, Kilowog, Sinestro, and Hector Hammond.
Two out of three of these characters pictured above are pretty obscure, so it seems the film is really digging into the Green Lantern Universe, and the third character (Ch'p) isn't the most well known of the Lanterns, but he has some loyal followers. (i.e. me) although Medphyll and NautKeLoi look pretty cool, their bodies are exactly the same, which is a bit of a bummer, but GL fans will probably buy them anyway. Ch'p, however, looks fantastic, and he's a sure addition to any collectors Corps set-up.
Also, in January, Toy Fare will be releasing the full image of the silhouette to the right. Many people are starting their speculations for who this character might be, and I have some of my own. I dug pretty deep to find a Green Lantern Corps member that could fit the bill, and to me, it looks as though it could be G'Hu of sector 2937. However, I'm about 99.9% sure that a Corps member that appeared in less than 5 issues is being made into a toy, and why would they black-out a character who doesn't have a vital role in the film? So, I've got good, hard-earned money on the fact that this is actually a form of Parallax, who I believe was confirmed as a part of the film. It makes the most sense, since they're making a big deal with the blacked out figure. Who do you think the silhouette is? What do you think about the other figures?
UPDATE: The silhouette is actually G'Hu. I was .1% correct. I win!
