“So I hear you can talk to fish.”

Aquaman Aka Author Curry made his debut in November 1941’s issue of More Fun Comics # 73. Half-human half Atlantean Aquaman has been featured throughout the years in comics, films, and television.

Mezco brings the classic version to action figure form. Dressed in his classic finned, scaled armor Atlantean (soft)suit with intricate detail down to the A on his belt. Three head sculpts, 6 hands, includes trident holding, swimming and posing sets. also included is his King of Atlantis crown which is magnetic for placing on his head and staying put, cross shoulder armor, and Trident of Neptune. Also included is the Aquaman logo base, and posing stand.

Slowly but surely we have the makings of the Classic Justice League Featuring the founding members. Hal Jordan is not too far behind as a Px Previews exclusive. Double-jointed elbows 30 points of articulation hand painted attention to detail what is there left to say. I am loving the classic approach to DC’s iconic heroes. Posing and playing was handled well. Didn’t find any unmoveable joints which seemed to cause issues with some design flaws in the past. Every year Mezco raises the bar and delivers on some great characters within the comic realm.  Grab this guy to add to your JL collection. Unfortunately, some of us missed out on the Superman and Flash characters. Grab him before he’s gone.
