Default Kyle Rayner White Lantern figure

Can anyone point me to one? Wasn't there one? I'm down to buy.

If there is none, you could repaint the Ion figure in this forum's header image easily.

There are Funkos, an Eaglemoss chess piece, and a Heroclix. There haven't been any 6" or 7" figures produced. It certainly would be nice if McFarlane decided to do one.

I have the Eaglemoss piece, and repainted it into the Banks costume. But it's not usable for H&K.

You must have some serious customizing skills to repaint something of that scale.

I didn't say that it looks good. But it helped that the mask had almost the right shape already.

I'm just going to heat up the Sinestro White Lantern figure and transfer the head to the Blackest Night Kyle. It's literally the same exact body so it should work, in theory. Unless something breaks.

Not quite. Sinestro's symbol was on the center of his chest, while Kyle's was near his left shoulder. The "gloves" and the boots are slightly different too, but you can probably overlook that.

Let me know how that turns out. I've had the same thoughts, and I have an extra BN Kyle, but I'm wary of trying to head swap DC Direct figures.

I just mean the action figure bodies are identical. Same feet, arms, torso, boots, etc..

Let me know if it's safe to do that. I just might try that too. I've done swaps on DCUC and Marvel Legends, but never a Direct figure.

I'd love advice from anyone that's tried. My instinct is just to hit it with a blow dryer until it's hot and then try and pop the head off by gloved hand.

I usually use boiling water. That adds a little slickness to the heat.

So they never made a White Lantern Kyle figure, but they made white lantern figures for Hal, Sinestro...AND the Flash?

They made a Kyle White Lantern Funko pop thing. That's of no use to me, of course.

That's kind of hilarious. Tells you what a crap gimmick the white lantern and all the other colored doppelganger lanterns were.

I never wanted to get into Funkos since my collectibles room, aka the Nerd Cave, aka the Central Power Battery, is bursting at the seams. However, when I saw a WL Kyle, I told the wifey that both of those Kyles would make good gifts if anyone was so inclined to get those for me.

All that tells me is that DC will use any and all excuses to make Batman figures. I've seen poor plastic Bruce carrying around a cannon on his shoulder (Capture Claw), loaded down with "Anti-Virus" gear that looked like a computer from the 1970s, and this little piece of sh-- errr...this little blunder:
