Custom DC Infinite Heroes Figure – Guy Gardner: Reborn

Hi world! Today I’m showcasing another DC Infinite Heroes custom figure that I have created – Guy Gardner!

Guy Gardner is among the few humans who have had the honor of becoming a Green Lantern. Guy Gardner’s macho ego has at many times brought him into conflict with his team mates, and this time it has cost him his Green Lantern powers. But Guy Gardner is determined to claw his way back into the game soon enough.

The whole figure – Guy Gardner

Actually this particular Guy Gardner figure is available as part of the DCIH Prelude to Doomsday Gift Pack. The reason why I had created a custom of this Guy Gardner was because:  (1) That DCIH Gift Pack never made it on sale here in Singapore, and (2) the single pack Guy Gardner could still be found pegwarming at some toy shops, and all I had to do to make him appear as he does in the Gift Pack was to do a simple repaint.

Apparently, sometime during the 1990s, Guy Gardner lost ownership of his green power ring when he was challenged and defeated by Hal Jordan. Guy Gardner decides to regain his powers, by taking Sinestro’s yellow ring! (Note that Sinestro was then dead at that point in the comics). Guy Gardner then took to wearing steet clothes (which still somewhat resembled his Green Lantern costume), wearing a dark blue jacket with a yellow “G” on it.
