When you become known for certain things, sometimes you have to live up to your reputation. For example, if you regularly follow this blog, you know that I love orange toys. The more obnoxious, the better. You also know that I love Lex Luthor in Power Suit Armor. I especially love Lex Luthor in Power Suit Armor when he's making a goofy face.
And so this thing existed.
I mean, in one way, I'm kind of meh about it. I didn't read any Darkest Night or Brightest Day whatever. I've never read the Sinestro Corps. I've never read a single Green Lantern book in my life. I just don't really care about Green Lantern. I liked John Stewart a lot in Justice League, but that's the extent of my interest in all things Green Lantern. If I see the Green Lantern film this summer, it will be because I am a bigger fan of Ryan Reynolds.
But... bright translucent Lex Luthor in his Power Suit with a goofy-ass face.
Another wrinkle in my decision was learning that DC Universe Classics is also going to be doing a version of "Orange Lantern Lex Luthor" or whatever. Mattel's stuff is way more poseable than DC Direct's, so it would be a more fun toy to fiddle with. But it didn't have the goofy face. I had to choose between better toy or goofy face.
I guess I chose goofy face.
