Hello, DC fans and Mezco One:12 collectors!
In this article I am going to be sharing my thoughts on the Hal Jordan/Green Lantern that was released by Mezco.
While this has been out for a bit of time I wasn’t able to get mine until quite recently due to how much of a limited release Hal is.
The second Mezco Green Lantern we have received
First time we received a Green Lantern from Mezco was John Stewart and it didn’t disappoint.
If you are wondering does Hal Jordan disappoint the answer is no as he is also worth purchasing if you are a fan of Green Lantern characters.
At this point in time I’m not sure if Mezco have more Green Lantern characters planned out as it’ll be interesting to see if more do come.
So let me know down in the comments below what characters from the Green Lantern history you’d like to see Mezco take on next.
Hal Jordan/Green Lantern released as a PX exclusive
While John Stewart was a regular retail release Hal Jordan may be a struggle to find as he is a Previews Exclusive.
So that means is only available in limited quantity compared to regular retail releases from Mezco.
I will say that if you find one for a good deal then chances are it likely won’t be available for long.
Thankfully I was able to find mine online for a good price but as a PX Exclusive they are more expensive than regular releases.
Interchangeable hands, heads and effects
One of the great aspects of Mezco is the action figures they make are included with tons of interchangeable parts.
What you get with Hal Jordan are eleven different hands and effects that include a smoke star, Shield blast and energy ball effect.
Two interchangeable heads are included that are an open and closed mouth expression.
A lantern that requires batteries for a light up feature is also included.
This same lantern was also included with John Stewart and there isn’t much difference between them.
Similar to John Stewart an extra chest piece is included I’m not sure why that is but it is handy in case you lose it or want a spare for something else.
While all these accessories are the same as the ones with John Stewart it is no issue that Mezco would re-use them again for something like this.
Do I recommend Hal Jordan/Green Lantern?
The answer to that is if you are a fan of the character or a Green Lantern fan in general then yes I absolutely recommend you purchase Hal Jordan.
If you liked the previous Green Lantern we had then chances are you’ll like this one just as much as both Hal and John are major characters in the DC Universe.
As while the articulation is pretty much the same as the John Stewart action figure it makes sense on why it would be the same.
Do you have the Mezco Hal Jordan in your collection and what did you think of him? I’d be curious to hear your thoughts down below.
