    I picked up White Lantern Hal Jordan at Target... then found the Black Lantern at TRU. Which is the variant, and is this one of those figures like Booster Gold and Nightwing where one color/costume is more sought after than the other?

    I've only ever seen Black at retail, so my guess is the White is the variant. In any case, this should be in the DCUC thread.

    Common sense would say the Black Lantern Hal Jordan is the variant. He's the main protagonist of the whole Blackest Night event.

    Do you have any idea what the heck you're talking about? Seems to me a lot of the time you just post for posting's sake. Hal Jordan is a protagonist, but definitely not as a Black Lantern. The Black Lanterns were the villains of the series. He actually helped save the universe as a White Lantern, and you'd know that if you ever read the series.

    Yeah, it's not just him though, there are a couple of board members right now who like to put up nonsensical threads and posts. Frankly it's getting annoying, especially when they're no help and just adding to confusion of a discussion.

    I've seen the white one at least 50 times, I've never seen the black one.

    Out of the times I've seen this wave at retail, I've only seen White Lantern Hal once and Black Lantern Hal several times, so either WL Hal is the variant or he's more popular with buyers for whatever reason.

    I've only seen black at retail, never the white. Actually yesterday was the first time I've seen the Wonder Woman figure.

    Anyway, I prefer my DCDirect White and Black Jordans.

    And ILoveDinobot, love you new sig pic. Just read that book yesterday

    Thanks, I love all friendly banter and snark between Steve and Tony.

    I hate when they do that, like people see one figure mass out one place and others see the variant everywhere. :| We hardly got any Boosters with the collar out here.

    I believe they're a 50/50 even variant.
