Awesome Toy Picks: Justice League NEW 52 Green Lantern & Flash Action Figures

Posted by G-Man (29418 posts) - - Show Bio

Each week we take a close look at comic book collectibles. That means we take some collectibles, open up the packaging and check out what they're like free from their boxes.

With the New 52 into its second year, we're seeing more of the Justice League figures being released by DC Collectibles. We've already looked at the Batman figure as well as the Aquaman figure. This week we're going to take a look at two more members: Hal Jordan and Barry Allen.

The boxes have the same minimalist design as the other figures with their corresponding color. You might be tempted to leave them in their boxes except both seem to have their arms raised kind of high. It's just not a natural 'superhero' stance.

The back shows the other figures coming. We'll see if they end up getting featured here as well.

As we take them out, we'll start out with Hal Jordan since he was released first.

You can see Hal looks pretty impressive and seems to be made for posing. Of course since he's sharing this post with Barry Allen, he doesn't really have the patience to let Hal get all of the time in the spotlight.

I do have to say, the more I look at these figures, the more I like the 'armored' costume look they all have.

They both have a good amount of articulation. You can put them into different poses and they stand on their own with no problems. One of the worst things about figures (besides them looking bad) is when they can't even stand without leaning against something. I really like the expressions on their faces. Just giving a slight reposition of their heads changes the way they look.

The cool thing about this line of figures is getting more than one and posing them together.

And here's the gang all assembled so far.

That's it for this week. Be sure to look for the next installment to see what collectibles we take a look at next.

i hope i'll be able to order the whole set

I like armored look too, but I think it's funny that to revamp a characters costume, they just add some odd and unnecessary seams.

cool i like the pic when flash runs behind Hal Jordan

GL looks cool, but he looks cranky so I don't think I'll get him.

#6 Posted by AlKusanagi (550 posts) - - Show Bio

Not a fan of that mask on the Flash. Makes him look like he's surprised all the time.

These look pretty good. While I'm not in any hurry to pick em up I do like hearing they can stand on their own. Too much articulation can be an issue sometimes when it comes to a figure standing up. Finally got around to taking my Dexter figure out of its blister pack the other day and it was a great solid hunk of plastic. I was so relieved I didnt have to fight to get him posed.

#9 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

#10 Posted by TheMess1428 (2176 posts) - - Show Bio

The Green Lantern one is really freaking awesome.

#11 Posted by BurnSide (53 posts) - - Show Bio

They all look exceptionally good! They didn't make em like this when i was a kid and i think i will get the entire dc new justice league (except cyborg cuz eventhough he is okay, he still doesn't fit in quite right)

#12 Posted by Utandi (218 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, got all four and the Parademon. They are so awesome. But I can't decide to unpack them or not. ^^

Can't wait for Superman, Wonder Woman and especially Darkseid!!!

#13 Posted by sinestro_GL (3008 posts) - - Show Bio

Some slick looking figures!

#14 Posted by SmashBrawler (4745 posts) - - Show Bio

They look pretty cool, but GL is definitely my favorite figure here, especially because Barry's face looks... a little odd.

#15 Posted by Icon (2044 posts) - - Show Bio

I want the whole set too.

#16 Posted by Bestostero (5611 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait to get mines

#17 Posted by bladewolf (556 posts) - - Show Bio

Great pics as usual!

#19 Posted by jack16ichigo (453 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like the boxes............almost more than the figures themselves.............

#20 Posted by mattwing87 (410 posts) - - Show Bio

These figures are awesome but I don't think they are worth the $25 price tag I keep seeing :(

#21 Posted by mattwing87 (410 posts) - - Show Bio

@LoganRogue24: And Cyborg!

The Aquaman one is a pretty solid figure, was the first one I got then the Flash, I'm not sure about WW or Cyborg and I don't like Superman

#24 Posted by TheCannon (16077 posts) - - Show Bio

I want a WW and Supes action figure in this set. I LOVE their New 52 costumes.

#27 Posted by modunhanul (379 posts) - - Show Bio

By the way, what's the difference between pre - New 52 and New 52's Hal Jordan's costume? I don't see any difference.

Very Well Done !

:) You certainly must give us updates when you have the whole team in place. Looking great so far!

#31 Posted by grenade728 (737 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool Beans! Can't wait for Superman!

#32 Posted by MisterKetch (253 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal looks good, but theres just something off about the Flash figure. The coloring seems off to me like its just a bit to light of a shade of red.

#33 Posted by KnightRise (4753 posts) - - Show Bio

So...much...want...

#34 Posted by RoTheKid (225 posts) - - Show Bio

I've got all four so far as well. Can't wait to get Cyborg, Superman, and WonderWoman!

#35 Posted by modunhanul (379 posts) - - Show Bio

@SmashBrawler: Thank you!

#36 Posted by AnonymousMC (22 posts) - - Show Bio

these are some cool looking figs though they are not very articulated and for $25 they need to be.

So far I have Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and I just bought Aquaman today. I seriously cant find the Parademon at any of my local comic book shops which was a bummer though!!! But serioulsy If anyone feels the same way I do. Lets start a petition to get some Greg Capullo Batman figures it's been over a year. It's one of the Best selling books. And Honestly who doesn't want a Batman/Talon combo pack

Haha! Have you ever seen the episode of The Big Bang Theory when Penny gets a Star Trek teleporter toy for Sheldon and Leonard?

Do not unpack anything and do not listen to "Little Spock"!

I already have Batman and I can't wait for a good Superman action figure... I haven't been able to find one yet. I would love to have Darkseid too but he's going to be like $65.00 or something

EDIT: Scratch that, $90.00
