Awesome Toy Picks: Saint Walker (Signature Collection)

A cool collectible you'll want to add to your collection.

Each week we get our hands on a cool comic book collectible and open it up to see what it really looks like. This week we're looking at another figure in the MattyCollector Signature Collection - Saint Walker.

This figure is from the Club Infinite Earths line. These figures aren't sold in stores and it appears it is sold out. If you're a subscriber to the club, it's sent automatically. Sometimes MattyCollector ends up with some extra figures and offers them up for sale again.

You can find this figure on eBay. The figure original retailed for $20 and you can find several up for bid at that same price and cheaper.

Who is Saint Walker?

The packaging is similar to others in the line. The back of the box has an image and mini-bio. You're probably aware that Saint Walker is part of the Blue Lantern Corps. He first appeared at the end of 2007 in GREEN LANTERN #25. He's played a big role in several issues.

Like most Lantern figures, he does come with a Power Lantern to charge his ring. You can see he doesn't have a ton of articulation but that's a good thing. Figures that have too many usually have them at the sacrifice of the look or sculpt.

His hands and wrist look delicate which adds to his look. You can put him in several positions except his head doesn't really stay in position if you try turning it to his left.

The figure is also in the same scale to other figures. So if you have any Lantern Corps figures, you could set up all sorts of...adventures.

If we learn anything from Saint Walker, it's you can always try to hug it out rather than resorting to fighting.

That's it for this week. It's a cool figure. Not too much articulation but just enough. It fits perfectly with your other figures so you might want to try to track this one down.

First thought: they could have chosen a better facial expression for St Walker. He doesn't look very hopeful.

I love him. It was cool when he was kicking a $$ vs blue beetles. Why does this figure look like super buu for some reason.

You say that he doesn't have too much articulation, but the double -jointed knees and elbows are more than most DCUC figs have.

Saint Walker always reminded me of an anthropomorphized sperm cell.

A single sperm needs a lot of hope, indeed.

Do his eyes look weird to anyone else? I know some artists draw him with those little pin prick eyes, but I always imagined they were somewhere between that and the ones on the back of box art.

I love Saint Walker. In my opinion, he's one of the better characters added to the DCU in recent years.

Saint Walker's a great character. In his time in the DCU, comics or animation, I've never been disappointed with any appearances. They do such a great job of making him a cool, inspirational figure.
