Green Lantern will hit theatres June 17th
In anticipation of the summer blockbuster movie for another DC comic hero, Mattel is releasing a new line of Green Lantern action figures, play items and accessories. Mattel's Green Lantern toy line captures the essence of the ring-wielding superhero with toys that allow boys to replicate Green Lantern's visual-transforming powers and action figures that will immerse them into the Green Lantern universe!
With the Green Lantern Colossal Cannon, boys can transform into the iconic superhero and help defend against intergalactic foes by shooting projectile Power Discs. The cannon's built-in "ring" lights up and emits sounds when fired!
The Green Lantern Basic Figures feature four-inch scale figurines of characters at key moments in the film so kids can play out their favorite scenes from the movie.
Our boys just love superheros, so they were ecstatic when we received Green Lantern toys that aren't even in stores yet! They really didn't know too much about Green Lantern and his background story but they are totally interested now.
They absolutely love the Colossal Cannon. They have been running around pretending to be Green Lantern while shooting down action figures with the discs from the cannon. The sound really makes the experience of this toy even more realistic and fun while Green Lantern's heralded "ring" lights up. It's also great that they make Green Lantern's greatest weapon, his ring, the focal point of the toy.The cannon is very durable and that is a plus since any toys that two wild boys play with have to be.
They have also been playing with the action figure with their other superhero action figures, such as Superman and Batman. The action figure is very detailed and looks just like Green Lantern in the new movie coming soon. DC always puts out great movies about superheros and these toys give the boys a preview and taste of the movie to come. I would definitely recommend these toys to any boys who love superheros or are just starting to show interest in toys such as these!
