Hurrah, Green Lantern is now out in movie theaters! 3Po and I already have a date to watch this fun summer action movie. And once he's watched it, 3Po can have a blast reliving the action with the Green Lantern action figures that Mattel sent him to play with.
Here's more information about the new Green Lantern toys:

The Ring BlastTM Jet features firing projectiles, lights, sounds and a Hal Jordan figure. Available July 2011 for the SRP of $39.99.
Even though 3Po and Jammy don't really know much about Green Lantern, they were delighted with these action figures. They started playing with Hal Jordan, Sinestro and Green Man right away, and they've been having an awesome time saving the universe.
The figures are very detailed, with rippling sinewy muscles and realistic facial expressions. They're great for imaginative super-hero play, and when the sun gets too hot it's nice to know that the boys have something to play with indoors that doesn't involve switches, plugs and wires!
