To enforce their will and guard against alien menaces of all sorts, the Guardians had created a legion of robotic sentinels called the Manhunters about 3.5 billion years ago. The Manhunters eventually came to resent their servitude and were also viewed as flawed due to their inability to recognize and/or feel fear. They rebelled against the Guardians.
Chastened by the failure of The Manhunters, the Guardians decided that their newest force of soldiers for good would consist of living beings, ones who had free will and strong moral character. To arm this new legion of celestial knights, the Guardians created the Power Rings, rings of inconceivably advanced technology that allowed their wearers to project green beams of energy with which the bearer could conjure objects of any size or shape, limited only by his or her imagination and willpower.
The Green Lantern Corps were thus formed, and they included these fantastic high quality pad printed custom minifigures by Christo. (From left to right: Sinestro, Hal Jordan, Abin Sur and John Stewart)
These Green Lantern custom minifigures are available at Minifigures.co.uk while stocks last.
