I saw some Green Lantern toys today. You can tell they’re being a little safer about them than Marvel. They aren’t as cool or articulated as the Marvel toys are. A little less expensive too, but not by orders of magnitude. I feel like DC is a little more pensive about how people will react to their latest offering. I think it looks fun, but I’m hardly your average nerd.
I seem to recall all the Superman toys sucking. Maybe that’s part of the problem. I seem to recall a lot of Superman clearance when they didn’t sell enough of them. I don’t think I bought a single Batman toy either… I wonder why I thought all the DC toys sucked. I think the Batman ones were the wrong scale. Superman didn’t have a good base toy to buy. They all had a fatal flaw. At least the Green Lantern stuff is more or less to scale with the Marvel stuff, if simple. I actually considered getting one. until I saw they had a new Powerglide.
