Hexor Game Pieces - 2003

I received an email from our newest F.O.A.M. member, Wil Radcliffe, asking me if I had the Aquaman Hexor Game Piece.

Not knowing what any of those words meant except for "Aquaman", I told Wil I had no idea what that was, so Wil generously offered to send me the Aquaman piece (and, as you can see, a few others). According to Wil, the game didn't really take off so the game pieces can be found for cheap.

Which is kinda too bad, because they're really quite nice. I thought they'd be little cardboard doodads like pogs, but they're actually made from metal of some sort and have a real nice heft to them.

(Wil is the creator of Nogglestones, a fantasy novel that seems to have taken off, Lord of the Rings-style, into its own little cottage industry of podcasts, products, and other stuff. Amazing!)

Thanks Wil, and welcome to F.O.A.M!

Those are pretty neat, Rob. The fact that Aquaman has showed up so frequently on JL and JLU merchandise makes him seem like the Pete "Fifth Beatle" Best of the Justice League animation franchise.

I like the full regal pose with cape and trident there, but I've never seen the Aquaman logo that they used for the show. Looks like a cross between the Star Trek Federation symbol and a cursor.

Hope to find one of these for myself soon!
