Toying Around Reviews - Super Friends Green Lantern

DC Comics Multiverse - Super Friends Green Lantern

Today we will be taking a look at the DC Comics Multiverse Green Lantern based on his appearance from the old Super Friends TV show.

Super Friends was a DC based superhero show from 1973, it ran for 9 seasons over 13 years with 109 episodes.


Packaging:

Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.

Green Lantern comes in the standard red and black packaging that we see with all the Multiverse figures.

On the front you have the Super Friends logo at the top left.. The DC Comics Multiverse logo right below that. The figure is clearly displayed in the middle. On the bottom of the box you have a picture of Green Lantern from the Super Friends show with his name listed next to him.

The left side of the box shows the Multiverse logo and the Super Friends logo.

Turning the box to the back we have a full picture of Green Lantern with the old multicolored rainbow that was used in the opening of the TV show. We also have the other three figures you can get in this line. Batman, Superman and Aquaman, all based off their looks in the TV show.

Moving the box around once more to the right side, we have that same Green Lantern picture from before.


Outside of the Box:

Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

As you can see right out of the box the green Mattel used on the figure is very reminiscent of the green that was used in the Super Friends TV show. You can also see on some areas like the shoulders and legs they they didn't match the paint so well to the green of the plastic that was used on the body of the figure.

My figure also has some very bad paint rub on the top of the shoulders.


Accessories:

Lets see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.

The only accessory Green Lantern comes with is a base with two diffent back drops. the one side has Green Lantern and the other side has "NDS". When you collect all for figures you can line it up and spell out SUPER FRIENDS.


Articulation:

How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!

Green Lantern's articulation includes the following:

Mushroom Pegged Head - allows you to swivel the head 360 degrees. 

Ball Jointed Shoulders - gives the arm 360 degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm

Upper Bicep Swivel - allows or 360 degree at this cut

Singles Jointed Elbows - this allows for a 90 degree bend at the elbow

Swivel Wrists - allows you to turn her wrists in a full 360 degree circle. 

Ab Crunch - this cut lets you to be able to bend the figure front and back at the Abs.

Waist Swivel - this cut lets you to be able to turn the figure around from the waist.

Hinged Legs - with this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.

Lower Thigh Swivel - the leg can rotate around a full 360 degrees.

Single Jointed Knees - This joint, although limited, allows you to bend the knee to about 90 degrees.

Hinged Ankles  - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back

Rating:

What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?

Paint Job 1/5

The Green paint on the arms not matching the green plastic of the body really makes it a little bit of an eye sore.

Figure Sculpt 3/5

The figure sculpt is not bad, its on the old Universe Classics body that Mattel was using in the past so i think the body is a little to bulky for a Green Lantern.

Posing / Durability 2/5

Green Lantern has the stranded posing that most DC figures from Mattel has, my real complaint on my figure is the head. it is very loose on mine, so i hope that is just a QC issue and not an issue with the mold.

Overall Score 2/5

Its not a bad overall figure but if you are a completest you will want to get all 4 figures. (Aquaman and Superman have not be relased yet)

Retail Cost: $19.99

I picked my Green Lantern figure up at Walmart.


Time for some Toying Around!
