Despero Heroclix Figure - 2009

This super cool Heroclix figure of longtime JLA villain Despero was sent to me by our newest F.O.A.M. member, Daniel Hemmann.

As you can see, this old school Despero, not the more "extreme" scary monster version that showed up in the 80s. Whoever got the idea to do the sculpt of him based on the cover to Justice League of America #1, where he played The Flash in a game of intergalactic chess using the other JLAers as the pieces, deserves a raise--its a goofily brilliant idea.

You can see the orange and yellow blob that represents Aquaman. Sure, its lacking in detail, but think of how tiny those little parts are! Despero himself is only about two inches tall.

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

I've never seen this figure, and I've been trying to "collect" Heroclix figures for about 2 years. This looks cool...but it was probably way expensive, which is probably why I never got one. I just recently acquired Tempest for something like 4 bucks, which still to me sounds like way too much for about two inches of plastic. :-)

BTW, wearing my Aquaman hoodie today for my company's Halloween Casual Day. I'll send pictures next week. :-)
