I'm not crazy about most of these. I think Abin bothers me most since it looks NOTHING like he does in the movie, the face is all wrong. I did want Kilowog but I'm not going to want to spend the Matty Collector exclusive price.

I have given in, I was very disappointed at first but slowly I have came around. They really are not that bad. At 5.99 - 6.97. Anything more then that for the basic figures is to much. Even with limited articulation I have had fun with them. Isamot Kol kinda sealed it. He is the first basic figure I opened and he is actually pretty fun. I love the bear trap construct. Sculpt wise for the price I think they are pretty good likeness of the characters.

As far as movie masters I really like them as well. Naut Kei Loi is my favorite. He looks amazing in person, the metallic really give a fish scale look. In my head he is not Naut Kei Loi though he is just some other space fish.

I think with each movie item while not perfect there is something to like from them. The basic figures are awesome due to the constructs and the cross use with DCUC/DCD and Movie masters. The Movie Masters are all pretty nicely sculpted and giving us some aliens I never expected to see.

Like the Stel basic figure, Abin was made based on early concept art and not the finished look. Not sure why they didn't just use Temuera Morrison as a reference, though. At the very least they could have made him look like the actor.

I'm holding off on most of these as well. I've been picking up a few 4" figs for the constructs and I got the Construct Chopper. I'm more than likely going to cherry pick the movie masters and give them a comic based paint job. The Maskless Hal looks pretty good up close.

Yeah but they knew last year what Abin was going to look like in the movie, they had the Abin body prop at Comicon.

I agree. Plus the site is mislabled. Kilowog picture but called DC Comics Green Lantern Figure Max Charge Hal Jordan http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_1...4604002P?mv=rr. Sinestro figure picture but called DC Comics Green Lantern Figure Kilowog http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_1...&blockType=G10. I shopped at Kmart and if I did not know what I was buying and what it looked like they tried to give me something else. But they are cheaper that Walmart!

Just to warn everyone - K-Mart does not have the wave three figures they have on the site. I ordered them and what arrived was the wave one assortment that all the stores already have (Hal, Tomar-Re, and Rot Lop Fan). I called them up and spoke to a Customer Service rep who apologized and found that the items are not actually available yet. She was going to pass it on to the team that runs the online store but couldn't guarantee it would be fixed. This goes along with someone who emailed my site about having the same issues with the Krona 3.5" figure that he ordered from them and got the wrong thing, too.

Sounds like the Wave 11 BS they pulled earlier.

I've pretty much sworn off 6" figures, but I can't help but think how awesome it would be to display my 4" with that C&C Parallax...

I thought that too but unfortunately as much as I'm loving the Movie Masters line I seriously doubt I'll be able to get all of them. Tomar and Sinestro are definite buys but I doubt that I'll get Kilowog since he's only available online and I really don't have the $$$ to buy up the rest MM line right now.

Does anybody have any tips to get the MM Hal to hold his power battery? I know about using the clear rubber band thingy but I don't have one.

Im enjoying the MM right now. When I first bought Hal I was kinda disappointed but I really like them now. Picked up Rot Lop Fan, Tomar Re(andGreen Man from Matty) and them along with Ghu look pretty good together...or maybe Im just a GL bitch.

I couldn't resist Rot Lop Fan any longer so I picked one up last night. He's pretty awesome and even though the movie style is overly detailed he doesn't stick out TOO much from the other Mattel Lanterns. My biggest issue with the movie masters is the dark green instead of black for the dark parts of the uniform. They would all look much better if it was black or at least a SUPER dark green.

Found the Naut Kei Loi this weekend, Looked a lot cooler (not saying much) in the production photos. It comes with yet ANOTHER Krona Tentacle...

Where did you find him? I have only seen him online thus far, and the prices looked a tad high.

I got a good look at MM Hal today when I was picking up my Construct Copter. How could they mess it up so bad? IMO, it looks nothing like Hal from the movie

I agree, there's something off about the MM Hal. What makes it even more prominent is the fact that the 4" likeness is spot on. That doesn't usually happen in toyland.
