The Green Lantern movie doesn’t hit theaters until next summer, but the merchandising has already started strong. Hot on the heels of the recently released trailer, Mezco Toyz has sent us an EXCLUSIVE first look at the new Mez-Itz toys based on the willpower-fueled space police. Hal and Sinestro are both wearing their Green Lantern Corps uniforms from the film. We know that some fans freaked out a tad (or became violently belligerent) all over the various message boards, once the GL movie-uniform was revealed; but, looking at these toys, you can plainly tell who the characters are representing and the uniforms match the general shape from the comics. The Mez-Itz line has some great upcoming releases and this set looks to fit right in with the rest of their terrifically-stylized DC Comics offerings.
Good lord, if women were already swooning for Ryan Reynold’s cuteness, just wait til they get a load of these guys!
Here's what Mezco has to say:
Based on the upcoming big budget GREEN LANTERN action film (in theatres June 2011) Mezco launches their new line of DC Universe Mez-Itz with GREEN LANTERN and SINESTRO.
Mezco Toyz now has full access to the massive DC Universe of characters as well as specific movies, including world-famous superheroes such as SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, and many other heroes, as well as the vast array of villains associated with these iconic heroes.
In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. But when a new enemy threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.
Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans. But Hal has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris, if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may become the greatest GREEN LANTERN of all.
Ships in May 2011.
