JOHN STEWART – GREEN LANTERN
So today is yet another Minimate review. I promise to take a bit of a break from the Minimates, but they do make up a fairly large chuck of the collection, so they’ll tend to pop up fairly often.
We’re looking at a Minimate from the DC line today. This figure is Green Lantern John Stewart, the first Minimate produced in DC Directs attempted revival of the DC Minimates line after the initial Lego inspired C3 line failed.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
John was a San Diego Comic Con give away, meant to drum up interest in the full DC Minimates line. Like many Minimate give aways, he features no additional parts, but that’s not an issue with this design. John is built, unsurprisingly, on the basic Minimate body. He stands about 2 inches tall and he has 14 points of articulation. John is based on his appearance from the Justice League cartoon, which is a good look. The lines are all very clean and sharp looking.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Although he was released a while ago, John is a fairly recent addition to my collection. I don’t know why, as I’m a huge Green Lantern fan and a pretty big fan of John himself, but I’d say it’s mostly to do with him only being available at SDCC. Anyway, I’ve got one now, and he’s a great addition to my collection.
