A Gift for Green Lanterns

As part of my new leaf policy, I wanted to do something nice for the Green Lantern crowd, particularly after being inspired by this eye-popping post!

Since I've been disappointed that the new Heroclix object pogs are "generic" rather than applying to specific characters, I whipped up something for the Heroclixers out there who like Green Lanterns:
If you play Heroclix, you'll get the idea behind these pogs pretty quickly; if not, you probably don't care anyway.

  • Note that the "Stealth" allows you to "hide" the power battery in some piece of furniture or terrain (like a test pilot's locker!).
  • The "Support" can be used only on Green Lanterns.
  • If a GL carries a lantern, he can't carry anyone or anything else.
  • Anyone can pick up and carry a Power Battery.
  • Power Batteries take action tokens when they attempt to recharge a GL through "Support".
  • Power Batteries are immune to Perplex.

Enjoy!

These are really cool--they will definitely help Amy in her quest to re-enact the most epic battles in Green Lantern comics history. (And are considerably easier to come by than the new Spectre and Parallax will be.)

I like them. Care to do Bat-gadgets and other fun devices like, say, an Absorbascon?

After discussing it a bit with a clicky-chum of mine, wouldn't it be much easier to make the batteries devices that just grant Regenteration to Green Lanterns?

(Granted, it's not as "cute" as the Stealth and ES/D, but seems more streamlined.)

Why, I just may do that!

Currently, I'm working on
Skeets for Booster Gold,
Finny Friends for Aquaman,
Fears for the Scarecrow, and
Riddles for the Riddler.

Well, the Stealth and ES/D don't add any points to it.
