Between the New 52 Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, and Green Lantern New Guardians, as well as my constant hunt for whatever issues of Green Lantern Corps: War of The Green Lanterns and Green Lantern Corps: Brightest Day from 2010-2011, I've been reading a lot of Green Lantern lately! That being the case, I've picked up some new lanterns in the last couple months, including DCUC Sodam Yat & Katma Tui I found cheap online recently.
Kat's accessories include a sheild and sword construct for this protector of Korugar. Mine fit onto her tiny clenched fists pretty well when correctly positioned, the shield the more reliable it seems. No lantern for this Corps member.
DCUC Katma Tui is dwarfed next to DC Direct's Soranik Natu, but they both have their strong points. I enjoy both lines for what they are. Photographing these figures is how I "play with them", otherwise they are sitting on a shelf or stored, so aesthetics are a major cencern. But while Soranik is superior looking to Katma, there are times when great articulation can provide more opportunities for photography.
Lantern Yat has the typical DCUC articulation and the same sculpt as Hal Jordan from the neck down, like the other male DCUC Lanterns. He wasn't a fan favorite, but I like his outfit, and the head was very well sculpted and painted. Mine has a slightly loose left ankle joint, making his stance slightly undependable- I have a Robot Man with the same issue, so leave a comment if you know the best fix for this.
Below are Lantern Yat with the DC Direct Kyle Rayner, and with DCUC Katma Tui:
"In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power, Green Lantern's light!"
