The Guardians of the Universe are one of the oldest living species in the universe. Based on the planet Oa at the center of the universe, the Guardians repressed their emotions billions of years ago, and act in cold logic. They work to preserve life throughout the universe through various groups they create or empower. Their most successful group has been the Green Lantern Corps, a 7200 galaxy-spanning police force, each equipped with a green power ring capable of tremendous feats.
The Guardians of the Universe are made from repainted Minimate and Mega Blok figures. Their chests and hands are from Minimates, but their arms and legs are from Pyrate Mega Blok figures to create a shorter Minimate figure. Their skirts are made from sheet plastic. Their heads are from the Hannibal Minimates from the Silence of the Lambs box set, with new hair added with Magic Sculpt. Their face and costume details are created with water transfer decals.
