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.

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.

It is hard to understand the reasoning behind Mattel’s Green Lantern 4 inch line design. The first thing that comes to mind is that they are cheap and they wanted to maximize their earnings by developing a line that was clearly a throwback to a time were consumers were more naive and toys were just for children.

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.

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.
