When I picked up that DC Direct Larfleeze awhile back, I also grabbed this loose Wave 3 Sinestro- the coveted variant in his Sinestro Corps black & yellow. I like Sinestro in this outfit, the contrasty color combo just appeals to me for some reason. I really liked the face sculpt on this, but his buck could have been more rangy. Everyone goes on & on about this figure being too short, but I don't think that is really an issue: in the comics Thaal's body has been depicted as slender, so I would liked him a little thinner. The DC Direct Series 1 Justice League Sinestro is a piece of fine art compared to this DCUC, as is the DC Direct Deluxe 1:6 Sinestro I got last spring. They both just have more personality.
Truth be told, I'm still on the lookout for the DC Direct version of this guy, but he'll do until I can land one. The yellow paint apps on the chest, back, & shoulders leave a lot to be desired, to say the least. the ball-hinge at the shoulders is particularly unsightly. I've heard this was a rampant issue with this figure, and that's hard for me to understand seeing as the tampographed Corps insignia on the chest & left bicep are clear enough ??? Additionally, Sinestro's power battery and gauntlets don't match the yellow of the rest of his outfit- it's a somewhat petty complaint, but when combined with the sloppy paint app, the figure comes off looking ...somewhat off. I would have liked to have seen it all more the iridescent gold color his gauntlets sport, like the DC Direct Arkillo I have, which rules my universe :D
