DC Collectibles Green Lantern Simon Baz Review

I got DC Collectibles’ The New 52 Green Lantern Simon Baz figure about two weeks ago, but I never have a chance to review it until now.

The back revealed that the next figure will be Martian Manhunter.  I say why not.

The set is simple.  It comes with the figure itself and a pistol.

Don’t know if you can tell, but the painting of this figure comes with some green glitter in it.  It makes the figure shiner, and has a feeling that it’s able to glow in the dark.  Which it can’t really do.

People been saying that DC given Simon Baz a gun as a Green Lantern is bad taste, due to his thug-like appearance.  I agreed at fist, but now I actually like him having a gun.  It makes him stand out from other heroes.

The figure is even better than the previous ones I got.  The painting is superb, and the articulations are detailed.  There’s nothing much I can complain about.

I also like how these figures have height differences.  Apparently Simon Baz is a lot shorter than Hal Jordan.  Or DC Collectibles are just being cheap with the plastic.

Anyway, what do you guys think about this Simon Baz character?  Since his debut last September, it doesn’t seem like he done much yet.  And now that Hal Jordan is once again the  main character of Green Lantern title, I don’t know what’s coming of Simon Baz.

I feel like his entire existence is just a gimmick.

9/10
