'Green Lantern' Toys Reveal Movie Details
Warner Bros. and DC are hoping to see green this summer by making sure you see green. Green Lantern, that is.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products unveiled a slew of images and descriptions of toys and gadgets it will show off at February’s Toy Fair. At the same time, the toys give us a glimpse into what the movie has.
How about the Green Lantern Colossal Cannon. “Kids can become their hero, Green Lantern, by slipping on the movie-inspired Colossal Cannon for the ultimate battle experience,” says the fact sheet. “With a rotating Gatling style barrel, easy grip handle and a 10-shot capacity of Power Discs -- evil villains be forewarned! When the projectile discs are fired the hand cannon’s built in ’ring’ lights up, emitting blaster sounds. When switched to rapid fire or single shot mode, the cannon provides maximum force against aliens and intruders.”
Or the Green Lantern Deluxe Battle Shifters Figures (pictured on top). It comes with Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Tomar-Re and Kilowog. “When enemies attack, Battle Shifters figures are ready to fight back with the included fold-up Power Slinger accessory. With a light touch, the Power Slinger instantly pops out, revealing a malleable weapon or creature ‘construct’ to fight foes just like Green Lantern does in the movie! Power Slingers can be folded up again and again for unlimited play.”
Among other offerings are the Green Lantern Projection Ring (which projects the Lantern symbol “over 50 feet!”), a board game and requisite action figure. The action figure actually look pretty true-to-life, and they should. They were sculpted using digital filed from the film, according to the fact sheet.
Color me ... green.
