John Stewart debuted in Green Lantern vol. 2 #87 (December 1971/January 1972) when artist Neal Adams came up with the idea of a substitute Green Lantern. Twenty-seven years later he becomes the next Mezco released in the One:12 universes.  Slowly but surely we are getting our Justice League from Mezco.

Green Lantern comes with a wide variety of accessories. Included is an energy ball, smoking ring, energy blast ring, shield ring. star ring, flying hands, posing hands, lantern holding hand, 2 head sculpts hairless and with hair, removable 3d insignia(2), and Power battery with ring activated light-up function.

 Being outside the norm of Batman, Wolverine, and Spiderman abundance, John is a welcomed addition to the Collective. One of the best features was the light-up lantern effect that is only activated when you place the fist hand with ring against the lantern. I was not expecting it to be as bright as it was. The energy effects were a great addition my only complaint was the energy shield was not quite as big as I had hoped but understand can’t have it all. Posing was easy with no joint issues and lots of articulation.  Attention to detail was once again great as usual when it comes to the One:12 scale.

 Overall another great figure to add to the ever-expanding line. Yes, there will also be a Hal Jordon PX previews exclusive coming soon but don’t wait for him to release grab this one as well. After all whats the Green Lantern Corps without Multiple Green Lanterns. Price point is same as usual and with all the extras included well worth the cost. Hopefully, we will see Yellow Lantern Sinestro someday added to the line. Thanks again Mezco for another great figure.
