Over on their Facebook Page, MattyCollector’s Toy Guru has shared a detailed breakdown of the upcoming Green Lantern Movie Toys.
Green Lantern Fans,
Last month I posted a toy linepreview of what’s coming in the new . When Matty Fan Forums member Fightoned posted in the Ask Matty section that he wanted more details, Toy Guru answered. He asked me to share his response with everyone, so here you go!
Q. I have seen and read all kinds of great stuff coming out with the Green Lantern movie. But what is the complete list of all the lines associated with Green Lantern? Your news section hints of figures but a complete listing would be VERY HELPFUL! — Fightoned
A. Ready? The majority of the line is kid-aimed. While we will have our Movie Masters® and other adult collector items, we’re really excited to get kids playing with Green Lantern!
The rest of the breakdown continues after the jump. click the headline of the story for all the details.
The Green Lantern lineup will have the following products:
Basic Figures. Each basic figure comes with a construct accessory. The larger characters, like Kilowog or Voz, come with a “construct adaptor” letting their larger hand sink up with any standard size construct. There will be a total of 20 figures, including a few Hal variants, but this is the bulk of your figure selection. Each figure also includes a kid-sized ring.
Figure/Vehicles. 8 different “construct vehicles” (from and inspired by the film) that all transform between two modes with “ring activators,” such as a pull-string ring or a twist-and-unlock ring. This line will include Abin Sur’s escape pod, Hal’s mech suit, and Kilowog’s space cycle.
Deluxe Figures. Battle Shifters™! All of the Battle Shifter™ figures feature a transforming construct that instantly springs out (think plastic origami) with one touch! Check out Tomar Re’s Scorpion Assault and Hal Jordan’s Capture Claw™!
Galactic Scale™ 10′ Figures. Featuring Hal and Kilowog with light up rings and chest symbols. Each comes with a construct weapon.
The Final Showdown. Hal vs the giant menace Parallax with grab and capture feature. Awesome ‘try me’ feature on this guy!
Ring Blast™ Jet. This one won’t be out until the fall. It is a giant version of the deluxe Battle Shifters™ and springs out from Tank to Jet mode in seconds. Includes lights and sounds, firing projectiles and an awesome “in flight” Green Lantern figure!
Role Play Mask and Ring. Includes a light up ring!
Power Slingers™. Instantly sling out a Green Lantern weapon, like an axe or fist!
Colossal Cannon™. Right from the Green Lantern movie. Hal’s cannon fires 10 discs and blasts out Green Lantern lights and sounds!
Movie Masters®. Highly detailed, fully articulated 6″ scale figures from the Green Lantern movie. There are 12 figures in the assortment, including 2 Hals. One Hal comes with a die-cast ring; collect the other 11 figures and build a giant 14′ Collect and Connect™ Parallax figure!

Ultimate Construct Pack. A 3-3/4″ Hal with 10 awesome constructs.
Green Lantern Die-Cast Ring and Key Chain. The ‘movie prop’ ring is adult-sized, but includes a key chain so kids (and grown-up kids) can wear it on their backpacks.

Ya gotta see this one in person! ($80)
You might be surprised to hear how long it takes to bring a toy line to life, and Toy Guru had this to say about working on this iconic brand: ‘I’ve been heading up the Green Lantern team for the last two years, so personally I am really thrilled to see this one hit. Green Lantern is going to be an amazing experience and what looks to be a real pop culture event. I couldn’t be more proud of the work the whole Green Lantern team has done!’
