I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for action figures with removable masks. One of my all-time favorite action figures is Venom from the "Spider-man: The Animated Series" line, which featured a removable symbiote mask. In 2010, Mattel's Elite Kane figure, from series 4, made it into my top 10 figures of the year. Now comes a masked version of the Big Red Machine, but will he live up to his predecessor, or burn in a blaze of hellfire and brimstone?!
Let's find out!

We're just a little over a month away from the feature-film debut of Green Lantern, but movie merchandise has been in stores for nearly two weeks now. I was most eager for Mattel's Movie Masters figures based on the film. I'm not too crazy about the costume redesigns, but I'm happy to see a lot of the alien GL's featured in the movie and the toylines. Let's take a look at my most anticipated figure from the first wave, who ironically is technically not a "Green Lantern". Who is this creature? He's the sole member of the F-Sharp Bell Corps, Rot Lop Fan!

A couple of weeks ago, Mattel revealed their SDCC exclusives for this year and among them was a highly-demanded addition to the DC Universe Classics line, Swamp Thing. I can tell you that I LOVE Swamp Thing and am truly excited to add him to my collection! Today, Matty's added several pics showcasing the monster's innovative "endoskeleton" articulation. Swarm to see some of the pics!

Hello! And welcome to another edition of "Currently on Display", where I invite you to take a look at what's on display at "Casa de 3B". There's a lot of superhero action coming to the big-screen this Summer, but no film has me more excited than Green Lantern! In anticipation of the upcoming movie (and after finally getting enough GL figures from Mattel's DCUC, GLC and Movie Masters lines, plus a few from DC Direct and several customs), I'm happy to show off my Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps displays to you! Enjoy!
