"Smallville" Action Figure by DC Direct - 2008

sgThis was a nice surprise when my pal (and F.O.A.M.er) John McLaren handed to me during my weekly trip to All Things Fun--the Smallville Aquaman action figure!

Like the Aqua Sub on Monday, I knew this was coming out sometime this year, but had no idea when. I'm always happy to have an Aquaman action figure handed to me.

It's not a bad figure, and it's a pretty good likeness of actor Alan Ritchson, though the hood and knife accessories make A.C. look like he's a gang member.

By my count, this is the third Aquaman figure (after the
3" Ideal one, and Aquaman as Captain Action) that comes with a deadly knife as an accessory. Wertham was right!

Ooh, I had NO idea these were out! I need to get my comic book store to get me these. BTW, the Aquaman JUSTICE Armor figure is out now, too. I didn't get it (nor did my store order it for me) but I saw the John Stewart figure and Arthur is in the same series.

You don't count "spear for a hand" as a deadly weapon?

These do look nice. I'm tempted to get them, despite having essentially cut myself off from buying the 6" DCDs...so tempting.

My son wants one. He wants the whole set. Too bad DCDs don't stand up to much play (believe me, I know).
