This piece of news may come as a welcome surprise for all minifig collectors out there. We seem to have confirmation that one of DC’s most iconic superheroes will have another minifigure added to his very, very limited roster. In an exclusive Dorling Kindersley (DK) offering, the publishing giant is reported to release another Build Your Own Adventure Book that includes the usual LEGO set bundle. However, there is nothing usual about this set since it is slated to offer another Green Lantern minifigure, this time, of the courageous John Stewart. The DK LEGO Comics Super Heroes: Build Your Own Adventure Book comes with a set that bears a close resemblance to the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro (76025) set. However, instead of the Hal Jordan version of the Green Lantern, the set that comes with this Build Your Own Adventure Book features a fellow lantern from Earth, John Stewart.
The Green Lantern is probably one of the most underrepresented DC Superhero as far as being included in an official LEGO set is concerned. We only get to see him in the abovementioned Green Lantern vs. Sinestro set, and as an exclusive minifigure memento from 2011’s Comic Cons in San Diego and New York. Information about this book is a bit scant at this point, save for its expected release date of August 1 and retail price of $16.50 as posted on Amazon. Even the description of the book doesn’t give any specifics about this set.
