NECA: NYCC Exclusive DC/Dark Horse Green Lantern vs. Predator Sinestro Corps Review
Summary: This Green Lantern vs Predator set from NECA smashes both these franchises to the stars with two perfect figure that will make you the envy of everyone!
OMG! This 2019 NYCC exclusive is the greatest thing ever and NECA should be commended on bringing two of the world’s top franchises together, the fabled Green Lantern Corps from DC Comics and the perfect hunter of the worlds of Dark Horse, the Predator. Unfortunately there is a catch and due to licensing restrictions, this set was only sold at the New York Comic Con with limited mail order opportunities, including a package deal with the equally impressive Batman vs. Joker set. Keen readers of DC Comics may have also noticed the Sinestro Corps Predator in Green Lantern #24 which is where this inspiration comes from.
Welcome to the 7″ Green Lantern and Sinestro Corp Predator figures with over 30 points of articulation for your collection needs! These figures also come in a very stylish black box with their retrospective franchise branding on the front and a window box packaging.
However the accolades don’t stop there because NECA have created one of the best incarnations of “Highball” aka, Hal Jordan who was given the Green Lantern ring by Abin Sur which led him to become one of the greatest Green Lanterns in history. With that said, the sculpt of this Green Lantern figure is perfect, including the paint job and excellent articulation that allows you pose this figure in a variety of different ways.
In Brightest Day, in Darkest Night, No evil shall escape my sight, Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s Light!
Of course NECA don’t on their laurels and have included a swappable head for this Green Lantern with the equally impressive John Stewart. That’s right, you have the choice of two Green Lanterns! This is also the same with the Sinestro Corps predator who comes with a bio-helmet, detachable backpack, exchangeable hands, spear, sword and a shuriken or throwing star. The Green Lantern (whether Hal or John) boasts a swappable hand, three different Green Lantern effects plus the legendary power battery (with a glow) that powers this intergalactic police force.
If you’re a fan of either Green Lantern or the Predator(s), or even just one of these franchises, this exclusive set is a must have for your collection that boasts two perfect sculptures, perfect paint jobs and flawless articulation! Once again NECA have aimed to the high (to the stars for that matter) and have delivered perfection.
