St. Patrick's Day is Tuesday, and the nation is awash in green as folks start their celebrations a little early this weekend.
So to honor the holiday in a manner other than by consuming mass quantities of Guinness and Corned beef (although that will happen too) I bring you the Emerald Archer himself, Green Arrow!
This is the DC Infinite Heroes Green Arrow that is currently available in a three pack and a single carded version. The figure is the same (as far as I know) no matter which way you get him, and mine came to me as a single.
Green Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, comes with a compound bow accessory.
So far he is the only DCIH figure I have gotten that comes with any type of accessory. I don't need unnatural accessories for the sake of accessories, but a Green Arrow without his bow is like a Dr. Manhattan without his...well...you know. So I'm really glad GA has it.
He also has a quiver and arrows strapped to his back but they are molded on and non-removable. That's okay and in no way does it detract from the fun factor and coolness factor of this GA.
If Mattel's goal is to only release DC Infinite Heroes figures with relevant and logical accessories I applaud the effort and believe in the adage "less is more."
The hooded costume is an awesome look for Green Arrow and really makes this figure stand out among it's contemporaries. I am a huge fan of his classic look, but I must admit this hooded costume figure is a real treat for the eyes. There are a lot of details too.
The face is also an excellent sculpt. With his domino mask and goatee, Oliver is ready to fire off a few arrows on Friday and spend Saturday at the Ren. Faire with Dinah.
Green Arrow brings our DCIH tally to:
Infinite Heroes: 3
Infinite Villains: 1
