Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and the incredible Christoph Waltz and directed by Michael Gondry, The Green Hornet is sure to be interesting, at least, no matter which way you come down on the casting of the goofball from all the Apatow movies as a hero previous established as a smooth operator. It’s a strange mix of actors, crew and talents, so it’s going to be hard to tell how it’ll go over, but at least we can have something of a sneak preview thanks to these new pictures from Bleeding Cool, who also offers a non-review you can click here to read!
And in anticipation of the film’s success, the folks at MEZCO have just released a pair of 12-inch figures from the film, featuring 9 (Kato) and 11 (Green Hornet) point of articulation, switch-out hands for weapons and some pretty impressive likenesses of the actors. You can grab them
here as individual figures or snag the pair!

The Green Hornet girls were out in full force at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, building the hype for the upcoming Seth Rogen picture that brings back a hero the current generation is generally unfamiliar with. Here’s a look at the trailer…
Of course, fans of the original series or just the franchise as they’re used to might find the comedic take a little off-putting, but I think I’ll reserve my judgment for when I watch it (because I know I will) and just hope that the cast and crew do a bang-up job. Who knows? Maybe Seth Rogen will pull this one off.
But beyond the film itself, of course, you can expect one thing: collectibles. Beyond the pins, stickers, bags and various promo items, figures are a must-have for any big, (super?)heroic movie. And Mezco delivers! Here’s a look at the two figures we have available on pre-order, snaggable either as a set of both the Green Hornet and Kato or as individual fiures.
