History of the DCU Ocean Master by DC Direct - 2009

sg
The final part of my birthday extravaganza (as perpetrated by a gaggle of F.O.A.M. members, led by Russell Burbage) finally arrived just before Christmas--this super-spiffy Ocean Master action figure, part of DC Direct's History of the DC Universe line!
sg
Orm is part of the line's third wave, which also includes Superman, Brainiac, and Plastic Man, making for the strangest Bridge Club you ever saw. Its a great figure, well executed and a spitting image of the original comic book version.

After so many years of there never being any Ocean Master action figures, its nice to see Orm start to catch up! Maybe he won't be so filled with rage now.

Once again, thanks to Russell and his Gang of Ten for an extraordinary birthday. The items kept coming in, almost making it into the new year! Nice job, fellas--and remember, my next birthday is only eight months away!

I was looking at this at the shop today, couldn't decide if I loved it or not. Do you leave your stuff in the package?

Glad you like it. I'm getting mine on Wednesday.

David-

Since we currently don't have room for my vast Aqua-collection, almost all of it is in storage. So it all stays in the package, for the most part.

Joe-

Yep, it was way cool getting more free thing from my LCS last week! Thanks again.

Russell-

No, Russell, its the 18th. :)

That's a cool figure, and a pretty cool 'Bridge Club' too! Plastic Man and the old-school Brainiac? Nice!
