Underpants Ahoy!

My Fire and Water Podcast co-host The Irredeemable Shag spied this set of children's underwear on sale (at an unspecified department store just a few miles away from stately Shag Manor), part of the DC Super Friends merchandising juggernaut. As you can see, Aquaman may not be represented on the tag, but he's there where it counts--on the product itself!

Sadly, that situation is reversed with this pair of Batman: Brave and the Bold briefs:
Here, Aquaman is pictured on the, er, package (along with some of the other B:BATB quasi-regulars), but on the product itself it's nothing but Batman. Oh well, can't win 'em all.

Thanks Shag!

Cool - Maybe we'll get Aqua-centric briefs soon? :)

On a related note, I was at Six Flags New England yesterday and was again disappointed in the lack of Aquaman items and tie-ins in the DC Super Heroes area and stores. He is on a tee that they have had for a few years, he is one face of many on a mug and keychain for the JLA, and he was solo only on the new DC Direct figure that was on a hook behind the register. My daughter did find a small pin, which I will send a pic of, but other than that, nada. Such missed opportunities.
