Aquaman Vs. Mer-Man - 2010

The Shrine covered this crossover two-pack back when it debuted in Toyfare, but I had not yet seen the actual figures and package--that is, until our newest F.O.A.M. member, Eric Kwiecien, was kind enough to send us these pics!

These DC/MOTU match-ups are a lot of fun and this particular pairing makes a ton of sense; of course, my money's on Aquaman. I only wish we had seen this in the comics!

Very cool stuff Eric, thanks so much and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Man, this makes me think back to 1985 when I was collecting Super Powers figures and my kid brother had his He-Man figures. We used to team them up all the time. Being the Aquafan that I am/was/always have been, this storyline always got a lot of my focus.

Other pairings I did included Hawkman/Stratos, Batman/Man-at-Arms, Flash/Ram Man, GL vs. Tri-Klops and Robin/Teela. Wonder Woman and the Sorceress would battle Evil-Lyn. WW would also have a very good rapport with Battle Cat.

That artwork on the back is nice. Looks like Bob McLeod's work to me.

Is this available everywhere or is it a ToysRUs exclusive or what? I need to hunt it down!

you know, I really liked the previous DC/MOTU two packs, but had a hard time justifying the money ($30!). I think I would be willing to drop the money on this, however.

Just seeing them side by side is brilliant stuff. I agree Rob - a comic could've been a really sweet addition to this line, if not only in tribute to the comics of the original MOTU and Kenner Super Powers toys!
