You beat me to this. I just ran across this myself. I will probably sadly buy it but it looks horrible. We finally get a Green Lantern movie and it looks like the merchandise is going to be crap! The figure does not look like it can stand very well either. I hope this is not a sign of what the aliens in the movie will be like. I really do not like that tomar looks like a fish/bird head giant anorexic.

That thing is terrible looking.

Not a good sign for the movie toys.

I got no problems with this. Tomar is an old guy. He's been through a lot, he can have tired eyes!

On one hand, aliens should not looks like humans by rule and the toy gives that vibe. On the other.... its horrible. Now Im afraid of what they will do if Iolande gets a toy.

If you got it off this auction, you'd be waiting until that guy selling it got it from Walmart or TRU.

It's a pre-sale.

This is FAKE. It's a guy's custom made figure. THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL.

i dont think its a full presale. If it is a legit figure i think they mean a pre release, like they did with 2 transformer toys. kind of like teaser figures.


this one would be a fig that was stolen at the factory, thats why theres no accesories.



Unless of course like IJ says it is fake, although we need proof.

A fake really? The ebay seller has sold a lot of "customs". Sorry I dont buy "its a fake." The seller is listed as in Hong Kong which is where most of the early pictures seem to be coming from. The sellers current auctions and completed auctions show nothing but real mattel products. So what is your reasoning that this is a fake?

Because the first time we see a GL movie figure won't be for $3.99 on Ebay. I have it on good authority that it's a custom figure, not official.

i think its a steal from the factory. looks kinda like the mattel the dark knight toys. you know not alot of detail, kinda cartoonish but still looking like the movie. i dont think im going to get an attitude because i dont think its a fake or because i do though. nothing to get salty over.

He also lists it as a presale....why would you do that unless its real. He has to have seen one somewhere to get a picture.

It might be a mix of parts for tests but that's not a custom!

and the figure is not so bad for a test figure. you guys should see the trailer one more time...
