Tomar-Re (Battle Shifters)

Well, after seeing them on clearance for a few weeks, I eventually got to buy one of the “Deluxe” figures from Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch action figure line. Only they are not really Deluxe, neither in name nor value. This version of Tomar-Re was released as part of the Battle Shifters sub-line. In this format, you get one action figure and one big transforming accessory.

Well, one of the reasons that pulled me towards Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch figures was the varied alien characters in the initial assortments. One thing I’ve learned after years of collecting several 1/18-scale figures is that you can never have too many aliens (or monsters), and once these figures started getting on clearance, I didn’t hesitate to pick up some of them.

Well, one thing about clearance sales is that usually, what you find there are the obscure secondary characters that no one really cares about. However, with the way Mattel handled the Green Lantern 4 inch figure line, it is actually very feasible to score even the main protagonist at rock-bottom prices.

Kilowog is one of the more popular member of the Green Lantern Corps, and that popularity pretty much guarantees that he’d have figures made of him whether in the comic inspired style or in the movie accurate incarnation.

Over the past few weeks, I have been kind of extolling the virtues of the improved articulation on the later Infinite Heroes roster. However, it would be good to remember there is a reason this line flopped in the first place, despite hitting the streets well before Hasbro’s Marvel Universe figures did at several locations.

Basically this is magical Superman dressed in black. Seriously, one look at this guy and you know two things. One: he’s a villain (the black and gold outfit is a dead giveaway) and two: he’s a Shazam! related character …

Mr. Terrific

Mr. Terrific is another of those action figures I pick up without any prior knowledge of who the character is. I happened to see him hanging on the pegs alongside a fistful of the DC Infinite Heroes figures released in the 75 Years of Super Powers packaging, and his costume just caught my eye.

For all intents and purposes, Mattel’s mishandling of the DC Universe license has pretty much left the Infinite Heroes 3.75 inch line in limbo, and that is a shame, because their figure designs were heading in the right track when the plug was pulled.
