Mark Strong takes on the role of Sinestro in the upcoming Green Lantern feature film and it’s some inspired casting that only seems confirmed in its awesomeness by the above trailer.
And, of course, with the coming of the highly-anticipated movie, there’s bound to be a fresh wave of new merchandise, including a great line of movie-themed action figures–not to mention some great figures based on the recent comic arc, Blackest Night.
But we’ve also got a special line that’s come out recently and it’s a throw-back to yesteryear and a glimpse into figures of a simpler time: the Retro-Action DC Heroes quasi-plush line. Check them out here or see our latest addition, the villainous Sinestro, right here:
Isamot Kol only looks terrifying–he actually fights for justice across the universe as a member of the Green Lantern Corps and is one of the most powerful heroes in the legion. When the new Green Lantern film hits theatres, I can only hope that his on-screen presence is as awesome as the Movie Masters 6-inch version above. They really made some excellent choices in releasing this line and picking the characters they did.
Of course, if you’re looking for something more traditional, how about their take on Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan?
These figures are joined in the first two series’ by Tomar Re, Rot Lop Fan, Nautkeloi and Sinestro. Some are already available, but you can also pre-order the rest, which ship later this month and in June!
