The good old grumpy King of Atlantis and friend to Sea Creatures everywhere finally gets to take his place next to the other heroes on my shelf in plastic form! Check out some pics and thoughts After the JUMP!!
|Tuna is Murder! Recycle your plastics! Which way to the Ocean??|
The sculpt on this figure is great! I'm super impressed by the detail in the scale armour...each tiny scale is sharp and well defined and makes a great contrast the the green, hide-like supple smooth pants and gloves (I imagine they're made from sharkskin or something). Every detail is nicely done and I can't think of a single thing to complain about!
|Seriously, why am I in this city environment? Isn't there an Ocean around here somewhere?|
If I have any complaints, it's that the blue gem/decorations on his necklace are a little blobby looking. Of course, the whole necklace is more or less an in-joke from the first issue of Justice League. Green Lantern makes fun of Aquaman, telling him to "lose the necklace". He actually does, in future issues, too!
|Batman and his 3 bright, colourful decoys..er..um..I mean TEAMMATES!|
|Welcome to TEAM ORANGE!! Our mission: Find the $*(%& OCEAN!!!|
|Ahh, the eternal struggle. Cat versus Fish.|
Actually, I make fun of Aquaman, but the New 52 version written by Geoff Johns is actually a pretty cool hero. Give the poor guy a chance, it's not his fault he has to dress like a fishing lure! You know he can lift a car, right?
Poor Aquaman. Oh wait, I know what will make you happy...
|Ahh, I found the Ocean AT LAST! Sigh...Home Sweet Home!|
