Numerous characters have taken up the mantle of the Green Lantern during its long history and LEGO has produced figures that take inspiration from a few such members of the Corps. 30617 Green Lantern Jessica Cruz is the latest addition to the selection and this minifigure is currently available with both DVD and Blu-ray copies of Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis.
Past versions of Hal Jordan and John Stewart in their Green Lantern guises have been excellent so my expectations for this minifigure are high.
The character of Jessica Cruz was only introduced in 2014 and there are other members of the Green Lantern Corps who are better known but have not yet appeared in minifigure form. Nevertheless, this is an impressive design. The black hair piece looks superb in relation to the source material and I love the Green Lantern emblem printed over Jessica's right eye.
A matching symbol decorates her torso, which is predominantly bright green rather than the standard shade of green that has been used on past Green Lantern minifigures. I appreciate this alteration but am disappointed that the legs are not dual-moulded as that would be far more effective than printing black sections onto a pair of white legs.
30617 Green Lantern Jessica Cruz is probably my favourite minifigure incarnation of the Green Lantern yet. Her bright colour scheme looks brilliant and I like the expressions printed on the double-sided head too. Unfortunately, the absence of dual-moulded legs continues to detract from these figures so I hope that will be resolved as the gallery of LEGO Green Lanterns continues to expand in the future!
