Rated 5 out of 5 by stevesheriw Seems like a good value
This fairly inexpensive DC set has some elements that should appeal to the fanbase in addition to offering some nice play features.
The three minifigs provided are excellent. You finally get a Green Lantern, his nemesis Sinestro, and a space suit version of Batman. The Batman wings are a bendable plastic film and two versions are provided. There was also an additional set of wings to use as a spare. Batman also came with an alternate headpiece to go beneath the mask.
The chamber with the lantern is a simple build, but it contains some nice parts. A clear jumper comes with the set if you want to launch a minifigure.
The ship is fairly simple, but it is a nice build with several greens in addition to colored transparent parts. It can also fire a pair of round 1x1 plates or it can fire a pair of spring loaded parts.
The set is easy to recommend since comes with a decent ship for this price as well as three desirable minifigs. It would make a nice gift or simply something to add to your Justice League collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LegoMikael Green Lantern & Batman Vs Sinestro
I bought this set because of Sinestro and Green Lantern . Green Lantern was a minifig that fans of Dc were waiting for since forever and he didn't disappoint, Sinestro; Sinister as ever, and the New Batman was awesome too. I was surprised at how good the spaceship was, It is one of the best Vehicles from the Dc and Marvel Lego Themes. Overall, this is a fun set to play with and for collectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VaderFan2187 Yay! We get Green Lantern!!!
Comic-Con exclusives are, frankly, annoying. Only some people can get them, as they are not worldwide! Green Lantern and Shazam, two great superheroes, were Comic-con exclusives, making it hard for people to get them. At least now we have a widely available Green Lantern! Yes, you could make a similar version of Shazam using the Flash's body and other pieces, but Lego should make a new, official one, though different from the Comic Con exclusive version.
But I digress...
Let's jump into the set: Green Lantern vs. Sinestro. The box is decent sized, and the back shows Sinestro locked up in his own prison pod (lol).
Space Batman: His face looks suitably menacing, and the torso is well detailed. I like the two wings included, but would DEFINITELY appreciate leg printing. Compared to the face, torso, and wings, the legs look horrendously plain.
Green Lantern: Yesss!! At last we get a easy-to-get Green Lantern! How many times have I said that? Anyway, this figure is well detailed, as the amount of detailing is equal around most of his body, unlike Batman. I would have liked a weapon representation of Green lantern's powers, like Sinestro, though that's probably me nitpicking.
Sinestro: Equally detailed as Green Lantern, with a nice bright pink head. I like that he has a representation of his powers, in this case a yellow Ninjago 2014 Techno blade and a yellow lightsaber hilt.
Wow! The minifigures are good! What about the builds?
Sinestro's Prison Pod for Lanterns: This is... average. The Super Jumper function IS good, and I like the clear round pieces, but frankly, it's more of a side note to the ship.
Speaking of the ship...
Green Lantern's ship: Now this is cool! With quite a number of translucent light green pieces, including two tail fins, and a good mix of black pieces, the ship matches Green Lantern's color scheme. I like the missile shooting function, at least it's harder to accidentally fire those missiles. It is so awesome I have only two [nitpicking] complaints: 1. The seat is yellow. WHY? Shouldn't it be green? Unless Sinestro put the seat there :P 2. I find the ship isn't long and sleek enough, it seems a bit too fat to me, though that's probably me being quite fussy... :)
All in all, Lego did a fabulous set with this set. This is, perhaps, one of the best Super Heroes sets so far at this $19.99 price range. The only problem is it is a little bit pricey, at 11.4 cents per piece, above the usual 10.
Play experience: 17/20
GREAT JOB LEGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FIVE STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (or bricks)

Rated 2 out of 5 by BentWright Only the figures, please.
I bought this set just for the figures and don't much care for the plane and lantern holder builds.
Even if you MUST have Green Lantern, I'd recommend waiting or getting it elsewhere.

This is an awesome set. I like Batman's space suit and the Green Lantern. I would like to know though why the new Batman faces , in every set, look mad and rude. Since the new Batman minifigures were released there has been no smiles. Batman is not a supervillain. Kids all over the world love lego Batman and his smile. You can smile at Batman, but he won't smile at the little children's faces any more. ;(

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeefWellington One of My Favorite Builds Yet
I just recently got back into LEGO after getting away from it when I became "too old" for such things as an adolescent. In the last couple of months I've collected about 40 sets and this one is arguably my favorite build so far!
The space ship is really well designed and looks very cool. The weapons really fire and they're quite effective. My finger slipped and I accidentally fired one of the larger missiles, launching it across the room.
Anyway, I design software for a living, so I've come to really appreciate things that are very well thought out and have a clever design behind them and this set screams that. I'm very impressed with it and highly recommend this set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Saphira3231 Green Lantern Vs Sinestro
Though I am not an avid DC fan, I saw this set and knew i couldn't leave it out from my collection of comic characters.
The fact that you got three key characters (although Space Batman seems a random one to throw in) from the DC universe as well as the ship, and for very little cost, was great.
Only downside for the characters was that while Sinestro had an axe construct, Green Lantern himself didn't have anything to show for his power. The addition of a Warhammer construct to match Sinestro's axe would have been good to see/have. though i expect this would be achievable through other spare parts for those who have a larger collection.
As is usual for this type of product, the packaging had great detail prints of the contents and the parts themselves are all to the usual high standard with a couple unique parts with Green Lantern related decals and the unique Space suit of Batman.
The build was straight forward for all of the parts in this set. I found the functionality of the chamber that conatined the Green Lantern was clever, by shooting the shield at the top, you can release the door to reclaim the Lantern from Sinestro
The ship was really well designed, with 2 different types of guns that fire with a good distance too. One set has the stud guns, while the underside has the larger missile launchers. The tail wings are also adjustable which adds to play experience when the ship is being 'flown'
Overall, a great product that is certainly worth the money and looks great as a display piece and could offer a lot of fun through play
