Mezco Reveals Green Lantern As 1st DC Mez-Itz!

Based on the upcoming big budget GREEN LANTERN action film (in theatres June 2011) Mezco launches their new line of DC Universe Mez-Itz with GREEN LANTERN and SINESTRO.

Mezco Toyz now has full access to the massive DC Universe of characters as well as specific movies, including world-famous superheroes such as SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, and many other heroes, as well as the vast array of villains associated with these iconic heroes.

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. But when a new enemy threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans. But Hal has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris, if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may become the greatest GREEN LANTERN of all.

Product Feature: BATMAN RETURNS: Limited Edition (2CD-SET)

Product Feature: BATMAN RETURNS: Limited Edition (2CD-SET)
Limited Edition of 3500 Units

  
About this CD: La-La Land’s Expanded Archival Collection returns to Gotham for this 2CD remastered and expanded presentation of Danny Elfman’s magnificent score to the 1992 Warner Bros. motion picture blockbuster BATMAN RETURNS, starring Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito, directed by Tim Burton. Composer Elfman (BATMAN, MARS ATTACKS, WANTED, ALICE IN WONDERLAND) revisits his iconic theme and expertly weaves it into a sumptuous musical experience, bringing to life the film’s breathtaking action and rich emotional and psychological underpinnings. Produced by Neil S. Bulk, Dan Goldwasser and MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson from Shawn Murphy’s first generation three-track digital mixes, this limited edition release features more than 30 minutes of previously unreleased music, including alternate cues. The in-depth, exclusive liner notes are by John Takis and the art direction is by David C. Fein. This release is limited to 3500 Units.
 
Our Take: Batman Returns remains one of the more controvertial of Burton's films and marks the end of the dark era of batman movies in the 1990s.  Burton's take featured everything from Batman setting villains aflame to the highly sexualized Catwoman and an almost complete lack of screen time for the film's hero.  The score to the film was done by none other than the great Danny Elfman.  Regardless of how you feel about Batman Returns, the music is phenomenal. 

Now, La La Land Records, the brilliant company behind the original '89 Batman score re-release and the remastered Batman: the Animated Series CD set are bringing us a new 2-CD set of Batman Returns with added songs and material!  This one is highly collectible at only 3,500 copies being produced.  It was fantastic to hear some songs that weren't on the original soundtrack release, there are no less than 10 of them!  Not to mention all of the extended version of other tracks.  You can see the deails on all of that below.

Legions of Gotham HIGHLY recommends this one for you or the bat-fan in your life!  It'd make a fine Xmas gift.  The CD set sounds as amazing as ever. 

We will be giving away a copy of this CD here on LOG, so watch for that!
