Green Lantern Movie Power Battery Replica: Snot Too Classy

by


Purveyor of all things geek Entertainment Earth is now selling this limited-edition movie version of Green Lantern’s Power Battery. Made of cold-cast porcelain, it was created using the same cast that was used to make the actual prop used in the upcoming film, and also comes with Green Lantern’s power ring.

I’m not sure if this is what the complementary ring will look like though. As an added bonus, the ring lights up when pressed against the lantern’s face. It’s also been lovingly hand-painted to make it look exactly like the actual prop – a glowing tower of phlegm.

Seriously though it’s hideous. It’s going to stick out like a booger left on a white couch, in brightest day or blackest night. I don’t know why they didn’t just stick with the classic lantern. And here I thought having a freaking lantern for a power source couldn’t make Green Lantern any lamer. Still, if this lantern is right up your alley then you might want to pre-order it now at Entertainment Earth, since only 2,500 pieces will be made. It’s being sold for $290 (USD), and will start shipping this July.

    Didn’t know technabob articles could get any lamer or more ignorant

    They didn’t stick with the classic design because it’s supposed to look alien. I think it looks cool myself, but you obviously can’t please everyone.

    How rude. I think the design is great, and it doesn’t scream “I was bought at a hardware store on Earth” like the comic design. “Glowing tower of phlegm”? It’s awesome, and when lit up will have the green coruscating energy effect to match the ring.

    Although I do agree with the comments, When I first saw the battery I thought the same thing as the blogger, it was nasty. Being a huge GL fan I was pissed they didn’t use the original design, but then it really grew on me and now I find it sexy as hell! I’ve got it on pre-order and am proudly adding it to my Lantern collection in a few weeks! But TechnaBob, you’re kind of a dick, in a good way.
