Hal-Plicity

What's up people?

Well today is officially my 300th post. Yep, it's been interesting a wild ride in getting up to this point, so I hope you've all enjoyed what you seen and read so far. I promise to continue on with the usual slack-assery and smart-assery for at least 300 more;)

Anybody check out last weekend's DC Nation block?
Not bad huh?

I have to say, I really enjoyed the "Steam Lantern" episode, what with all the steampunk stuff and all. Oh, and who managed to figure out which mysterious guy in a red shirt and cape also managed to escape that world that world was? For some odd reason I couldn't think of who it was, and it wasn't until Googum, was like "duh! Alan Scott", that it actually dawned on me. Duh exactly;)

Young Justice also continued it's usual streak of awesomeness, with the steaks being raised even higher now that Miss Martian knows all about the secret undercover mission involving Superboy, Nightwing, Artemis, Kid Flash, and Aqualad. It'll be damn interesting to see what happens next, once MM gets over her shock of what she did and saw.

The animated shorts were also pretty decent. I would've loved to have seen the continuation of the whole "Sword of the Atom" story, so maybe later down the line we will. I will say the bit with Black Lightning's kids was kinda' cute.

Also who else beside me watched the Amethyst short and thought "Now this is what they should've done for the reboot!" Trust me, the way the DC animators handled and re-did this concept is much better than how it is now. Think about it, it'd have made more sense to have gone in this direction, especially with the supposed targeting of the tween/twilight audience. I know it would suck, but I say scrap the current hideous direction in favor of this one. I'm telling you, that animated version is the way to go!

Oh well.......


And now, on with the show as we take a look/brief review of the many Hal Jordan figures I own.........












Kinda' like that title of that of that famous book by Dr. Seuss, "Oh, the places you'll see" huh?

Have a good one..........

And thank you for stopping by. Appreciate it.

The big 300. Dale man you put in the work and we recieve the benefits. Congrats on the milestone.

It was to many Green, Red and Yellow Lanterns out there for them to give figure treatment to. Instead they make a rainbow corps of Hal Jordans. I was a little affended.

But I guess it gives us more figures to customize.

@Omega: Thanks man, very much appreciate it and any and all suggestions or just basic positive comments. It's been fun, and will hopefully continue to be, as I move forward to 300 more....and more;)

I'm surprised with all the figures they made of Hal, he didn't get his turn in the red or the blue, or orange. The only colors he didn't use was Indigo and Star Sapphire Violet. Although how funny would it have been for him to have worn a skimpy bathing suit?;)

Y'know, the NFL usually does a week or two with pink uniform touches and shoes; for breast cancer awareness and whatnot. Hal...would seem super-pervy like that, yeah.

300 more! Chop-chop!

@Googum: Yes, yes he would;)
Now just imagine if both major companies adopted that idea for an issue or two for all their characters; It'd be both sweet creepy:)

And to paraphrase Scotty from Star Trek, "I'm pushing her as far as she'll go captain!";)
