I picked him up today but I haven't opened him yet and can't post any pictures until tonight.

First impressions of him still in the box from when I picked him up...

He is on the skinny/teen body with modified arms and legs. He barely fits in the standard box so he should be taller than all the other figures. The legs actually look a little too long and kind of throw off the proportions a little.

The black body suit looks like it is more of a rubbery type with the yellow parts for of the standard spandexy type which is too transparent and the black shows through.

He does come with a light up yellow lantern and three sets of hands (bendy, clenched fist and slightly open).

Awesome head sculpt and good paint on mine as far as I can tell.

I saw this at my LCS. I thought it looked pretty good.

Natrix

Unfortunately, the suit is pretty restricting mainly in the hips and a little bit less in the shoulders. There is enough give in the knees and elbows to move them easily. The hands that I thought were bendy hands are in fact sculpted in an open position.

More pictures to come...

Hmm. My LCS didn't even have this guy, somebody mustive swept him up quick. It looks good and I really like that headsculpt, but I'm not a fan of this costume. Also since the line is generally based around classic Silver and Bronze Age costume, this one really seems out of place, at least costumewise.

Anyway, like I said he looks like one of their better figures, and thanks for the nice clear pics!

This has me thinking, and I really hope Codename V is on this body just so he'll be a little more 1/6 scale! Plus he'd look terrible on the superhero body.

No notice yet but they are usually slightly behind on shipments. It is a small price to pay though with the prices they offer.
Sinestro in the Dc universe is supposed to be 6'-7" i believe so that makes his height just about perfect! Correctly scaled heighth is usually one area Dc Direct is horribly inefficient at.

Does anyone know why DC Direct decided to make these figures 13"? I would be more willing to buy them if they were 12" and fit in better with the Hot Toys figures. I like the two Batman's DC Direct put out, but I hate seeing the huge difference between the Hot Toys figures and the DC figures.

Just got Sinestro. Great head sculpt, great costume, love the hands and the battery. But WHY did they feel like they needed to extend the legs on the thin body? The thin body is already very spindly and making him taller just accentuates this. It's not like Sinestro's height is a signature feature.

It's great that they want to play with scale, but it just doesn't work with this figure. But otherwise this is a first class figure - probably my favorite villain they've done.

The ironic thing is the DCUC Sinestro from Mattel came out too small. He is about as tall as the Robin from that same wave. Poor Sinestro.

It's not necessarily, but I think they wanted to really accentuate his built alongside Abin Sur and Jordan, which this accomplishes. This is easily my favorite 13" figure that they've done. Also, looking at the proportions in the Sinestro Corps War GN, the figure's dimensions appear perfect. The likeness is sterling and exacting to the depictions in the comics, and I love how that gaze exudes menace. A truly excellent figure.

Before we see any other Sinestro Corps members, I would expect maybe Atrocitus, Agent Orange, Saint Walker, and some of the forthcoming Black Lanterns of prominence. If they made any other Sinestro Corps members, I would like Arkillo; anyone who can stand toe to toe with Kilowog is deserving of a figural incarnation. Then there are Rayner infused with Parallax, Cyborg Superman, Superman Prime, and Karu-Sil. Any sound good to me.

I doubt if they'd make a Kilowog. He's just too bulky and they would have to tool a new mold for a base body. A Hank Henshaw/cyborg would be awesome though!! I for one would like a 1/6 Kryb figure!! She just so damn spooky!!

Martian Manhunter and Earth-2 Superman will be among the Black Lanterns (pictures of their forthcoming action figures were leaked) and it's rumored that the list of its Corps members could extent WAY back through the pantheon of every DC character who has taken a permanent dirt nap, such as Orion... and including possibly Thomas and Martha Wayne.

That is what if feels like only instead of a alternative universe they will be the dead of the DC Universe able to walk around....I'm expecting a "DEAD" JLA with heroes and villains long dead coming back....

I'm interested to see what they look like I'll have to search out those leaked images.

Check this out:

A recent promotional release from DC Direct advertising their upcoming "Blackest Night" action figures has shown that some of the Black Lanterns will be the Earth-Two Superman and the Martian Manhunter. Other characters mentioned as future Black Lanterns are Ronnie Raymond aka Firestorm, Conner Kent aka Superboy and, possibly, Aquaman. Scar, one of the Guardians of the Universe will become their Guardian.

Cant wait for Blackest Night figures to come out. ANyways, Back on topic. I just got my Sinestro figure in... Excellent figure but he's freakishly taller than the rest of my 1/6 figures!! At 14" he's taller than the HT predator figures. I'd say he's more at 1/5 scale. Regardless... I think he's one of the better "1/6" DC Direct to come out yet.

I like the twisted little Guardian who is writing the Black Book and that the Anti-Monitor is imprisoned within the Black Power Battery.

Dave, if you're considering picking up any DC book, I recommend GL. DC is going to revolve around it over the coming year.

I'm pumped about Agent Orange and his Corps. Justifying them as a tangible threat propelled by greed is interesting. The way they are doing it is by making ALL of the Orange Corps members predators, having led some manner of life having to stalk and kill prey. It makes sense, because what does a predator do when it brings down a victim? It vigorously covets its new prize and doesn't allow for any to share in the quarry. A brilliant way to make this Corps just as menacing as those following Sinestro and Atrocitus.

When we get our first glimpse of the Orange Corps, we see them on their homeworld in Sector 666, into which the Guardians never venture (apparently we will see why that is imminently). The Controllers are apparently seeking the Orange Lantern rings for their own ends... but it seems like they are going to be thwarted most violently. Agent Orange appears to sleep in what looks like a tomb, deep within swamp/jungle-like flora... all choked in vines. His Corps members already look to be there, encased in stone or earth... waiting to be awakened. This arc is going to kick ass. GL is the best book DC has going right now, by far. :rock

I can understand that. You can always download the torrents, not that I'm advocating that sort of thing. ;)

Buying individual issues is an expensive hobby. If you're not heavily-invested emotionally in the characters and/or stories, I understand reticence to start buying comics regularly.

When I was younger I bought a lot of comics, each visit to my LCS cost me about $20.00 to $30.00.

That's why I keep it at six titles per month now.

20-30 is about the going rate I'm finding myself in. Unless an issue comes out that I desperately have been waiting for, I usually let the comic book store compile my comics and I drop by every 2-3 weeks.

You could easily fit Sinestro's suit on a true 1/6 body. I've done it already and the head should be able to fit on a TT neck peg (or a little dremeling will make it fit).

Has anyone had success taking his head off? I wanted to try putting on the ehads from the Hal one.

Any tips? Thanks!

I popped his head right off, no problem. I would suggest warming some water in the microwave for about 2 min and then soak his head in the water for about 1min. The head will pop off easily.

Sorry to bring back a dead thread, but hey, Blackest Night, yadda yadda yadda...

Anyway, I finally caved and got Sinestro. I got both him and Rorschach for like $50 something shipped! So at about $25 each, I think it was a great deal. Rorsach is going to need some work, but Sinestro is fine as is. He's an alien so him being 7 feet tall doesn't bother me too much.

But I can't seem to figure out his lantern. The top (the end with the symbol) will turn and come off, but the bottom won't budge an inch. The box says to turn the bottom clockwise (despite the pic showing counter clockwise) to get the lantern to light up. What am I doing wrong? Or did I just get a dud lantern?

And anyone know where to get a GL for cheap? :lol

If I remember right, you just turn the bottom of the lantern counter clockwise a quarter turn and it lights up. You might have got a dud. Good luck with the GL search. I haven't seen GL drop much in price yet.

play with that battery a bit Buttmunch. Same this happened to my GL PF battery, I thought I had gotten a dud for weeks until I discovered I had been trying to turn it on the wrong way the entire time

The problem is the bottom of the lantern (well, at least the end without the symbol) doesn't move at all in any direction.

I'll try messing with the battery though.

I found this thread in the Freaks graveyard. I just got this figure yesterday and I really like it. I have a large collection of Hot Toys figures and all of them feel like they will break, but The Sinestro figure feels like I can really mess around with him and have fun with my toy, uh, action figure, coff coff. I have the 13" Hal Jordan Green Lantern Corps under the tree, it looks like a good figure as well and you get all those extra heads.

The Sinestro figure was one of DCD's finest, with Andy working with SSC I'm hoping that he handles the SSC 1:6 version when that time comes. I have the GLC 13" (three times over) and while it works alright for Hal to give his Silver Age appearance (the other version with just Hal had the modern look), it doesn't work as well for Tomar Re and even Abin Sur who would have better benefitted from a narrower body.
