I couldn't get this guy done in time for the GL contest, but I'm just glad it's done. In the GL comics, Honnu is one of the last Lanterns to stand up to Hal Jordan when he went nuts as Parallax. Left for dead, Honnu and several other GL's were in fact being held in stasis on the Manhunter home world. The rescue of Honnu and the other abandoned GL's was lead by none other than Hal Jordan (sans Parallax). Anyhoo, Honnu and the other Lanterns are now back to kicking bum in the DCU! Unfortunately, based on the pics I've seen from DC Direct's latest GL Series 3, it's gonna stand a Sinestro's chance on Oa that we'll ever see an actual Green Lantern figure in the Green Lantern series of figures.
Figuring that DC Direct is never gonna get around to it, I'm taking matters into my own hands and customizing my own versions of "The Lost" GL's. Honnu is made from the Thing figure from the first FF movie that I used as a base figure. It was perfect for this figure. No sculpting! Well, actually, I had to do a little dremeling to remove the little tab off the figure's back. I followed Dr. Midnight's drybrushing technique from the tutorial, and I couldn't have been more pleased w/ the results! (Thanks, doc!) The painting was real tedious, but was definitely worth the effort! I still have some work to do to prevent the paint from chipping at the left shoulder joint, though. Any suggestions how to prevent that would be appreciated!
