Green Lantern = primo

Concept of Construct = WTF?
I'll take that over the xbox colored SS version. At least it's not a race car track

I see you are right; I had been frantically reading through pages of the two "Darth Vader" threads so I guess my eyes were playing tricks on me.

I really like how it looks close up:

I tend to usually prefer the classic costumes for DC characters but when looking at this "New 52" Green Lantern costume next to Hal Jordan's classic costume, I have to admit that this one definitely looks more "badass" to me although I'm not sure if that is the word that I was really looking for.

I had the original Sideshow 1/4 scale Green Lantern on order years ago but had ended up cancelling it although I did see it in person and I really liked it. I had the new Sideshow 1/4 scale Green Lantern but, in person, absolutely hated everything about the statue from the knees down as well as some areas of the upper body although the head sculpt was perfectly executed (with the exception of the pointy ears but that wasn't a big deal); even my daughters agreed that it had to go back. I wasn't even considering the Prime 1 New 52 piece (even though I thought the sculpt was pretty nice) because I had already ordered the Sideshow version.

Without any bias, I have to say that this is piece by Prime 1 is definitely the nicest Green Lantern piece that I've ever seen. Don't laugh but I have to admit that the style totally reminds me of works I have seen by Michelangelo. The pose is classically great, the positioning of the torso, the legs, everything. As many have indicated, I also don't know what he is doing with that ring of his but I do think the execution works perfectly. Initially, I figured that he was raising himself up in a kind of tornado but, since he can fly, I'm not sure what he'd be accomplishing in so-doing; still, that is left to the viewer's interpretation and there is nothing wrong with that.

I'm still on-the-fence with regards to this piece but am very surprised that, with an edition size of only 500, it is still available 5 months after pre-orders began. Do people despise the new costumes that much? I suppose I just really like the pose/sculpt of this one...

Many love the new 52 costumes because to many it's the same as the originals. Or close enough. Only things holding me from a po is the prices p1 is asking for is just way too much for this. I went for the ss version. Is this the same size as the huge ss version? Side by side pics would be interesting

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

That's another point a like on this statue...this lets you to interpretation, discussion..that's what art is all about. When i look at it, i'm wondering..is he doing an earthquake ? is he raising himself to avoid an attack? is he just beginning another construction? This is a really beautiful piece with a unique style..

Maybe it is price that is holding this series back. The Sideshow piece is on low stock alert now with an ES of 1250 but at $250 less than this one the price is definitely more attractive.

The Sideshow measurements are:
24.5" H (622.3mm) x 13" W (330.2mm) x 12" L (304.8mm)*

The Prime 1 measurements are:
22.44" H (569.98mm) x 11.02" W (279.91mm) x 12.59" L (319.79mm)*

Very similar in size but the cost difference is astronomical until you look at pictures of both pieces side-by-side and then it almost makes sense.

Thanks that's pretty impressive on the p1 version size wise. The ss one is a true pf size imo. So that means the rest is big like this as well. Well done p1!
