"Greed, for the lack of a better good!"

Quick one today folks!

Thanks to the wife, I brought him as a new addition to my DCUC family: Orange Lantern Lex Luthor!
And as well we all know, Luthor's way cooler than Gordon Gecko ever thought about being. Hell, no offense to Michael Douglas, but Ol' Lexie even did the whole "I got cancer" bit first.

He's cool as hell, and when forced to choose between Indigo Lantern Atom and Lex....Lex won by a landslide.

I only wish Lex's lantern came with a handle, as Noisy over at It' pointed out in his OLLex review.
It's not a deal-breaker or anything like that, but it just makes more sense to include one.

When it comes to figures, greed is good! I think the reasoning on the no-handle orange lantern, beside cheaping out, is that the greedheads clutch their lanterns like a teddy bear...

I haven't even seen this guy locally. The Wal-Mart closest to me is getting clogged with Samurai and Toyman...and a couple Mary Batsons I don't think they're ever getting rid of.

Yeah, the Wal-mart near me has Samurai too, as well as some misc. leftovers from the Ultra-Humanite wave, and GLC wave 2.

I'd love to have Bronze Tiger, Toyman, and Captain Boomerang...hell I'd even get Black Vulcan if he was available.

AS for the handle issue, yeah Mattel definitely cheaped out here. And while I know that the Four Horsemen were trying to be comic accurate, it wouldn't have killed either to provide a handle. I mean is excluding a handle really saving a lot of money?

Not to mention, Lex's torso is super-loose. But I'm still happy with him overall.

See baby you should have kept your Avengers CARD! We actually got this figure at Target. Our Wal-Mart sucks, here. I like the comment about them clutching their Laterns like teddy bears! LOL
