Interesting. Those Play Arts figures are too expensive, though.

Yeah, it's not a very faithful to the source material. It looks like an anime version of Guy with a mask.

Yeah its an ugly sculpt. The energy effect is probably the only thing I like about it.

That is supposed to be Guy? I thought it was a new guy or some ugly ass alien I never seen before.

Fellow board member Muthasucka posted in another forum more info on this figure.

Appearantly, Play Arts Kai is making some type of variant line of DC Characters that resemble Anime type characters. In that light and with the rest of the line, I don't see the Green Lantern as a transsexual but like something from Dragon Ball Z or the anime version of the X-Men. If the head scuplt was closer to the source material, I think it would be pretty awesome.

I'll most likely pick up Batman, Wonder Woman and Batgirl.

The Batman and Batgirl are way cool, and the Wonder Woman looks good, but that GL is all-around awful. Even without the head, the uniform is way off... and now that I look at it more, the head looks like Damien and the body like a Mech suit.

I like Batman, Woder Woman is hot, Batigirl would have to see finished, GL needs to burn.

Who the Hell thought a cybernetic bishonen GL was a good idea? What the frak were they smoking over there in Japan?!?

In other words... FAIL!

They all look like their wearing some really bad EVA inspired cosplay in superhero designs ... I swear those are the second nastiest figures I have seen outside a Todd McFarland series line.

That Green Lantern Figure fell out of the ugly tree and hit everybranch on the way down. I guess If I was forced to buy one at gun point I would buy Wonder Woman's. Because it still looks like her,just in a Bikini that was desgined by Tony Stark.

If anyone actually cares, this week, comic shops across the country received Play Arts Kai Batman and Wonder Woman.









...and that stupid ass Bishonen Green Lantern, too.

I picked up the Kai Arts GL. It's a wonderful figure, if a bit overpriced. I can see it being a disappointment to people who specifically like Hal, because it looks like it could be Hal or Kyle.

My only criticism is that the alternate hand with the energy streak looks a bit too yellowish.

Aquaman looks pretty boss. Cyborg, though...reminds me of a Samus Aran Metroid figure.
