Kotobukiya DC Comics Green Lantern Classic ArtFX+ Statue

   Kotobukiya is releasing ArtFX+ statue versions of the Kenner Super Powers line. I have to say that this version of Green Lantern is my favorite. They’ve really outdone themselves with this piece. I had the original figure and just recently replaced him, sans the Power Battery. I wasn’t going to share it until I had the battery but I had to show a comparison between the Kenner version and the Kotobukiya one. It is obvious that the sculpt was inspired by the original, yet updated enough to give it its own identity. With the huge push to capitalize on nostalgia by offering larger scale exact reproductions of vintage toys, the attempt to keep the flavor of the original without being confined to it makes these ArtFX+ pieces unique. This piece is incredible and I hope they do Hawkman.

   I would love to compare these two in person but I’ll have to wait until I can get my hands on one.
