New "Mego" Aquaman?

Figures Toy Co. is launching a new line of limited edition, Mego-style 2-pack figures. They're starting with the Bat-Characters, of course, but check out the cardback featuring the all-stars of the DCU, all drawn by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez (PBHN)! Might there be a new Mego-style Aquaman in our future? Let's hope so!

If it happens, who would you like yo see him two-packed with? Aqualad seems like the obvious choice, but I could see FTC grouping the Teen Titans together. So who else would be appropriate? Hawkman? Wonder Woman? Alfred Pennyworth?

Oh, this makes me long for those halcyon pre-52, pre-Crisis days.

Figures Toy Co. is really confusing the fans with these reveals. I hope they don't just dump a bunch of figures out there all at once and don't give everyone who wants one a chance to find them at a decent price.

Oddly enough, I think that Ra's Al Ghul shot is from Who's Who! Looks like Jerry Bingham's Ra's from the soon-to-be-discussed issue #19!

How about Aquaman paired up with The Penguin; to recreate the Super Powers mini-comic packaged with Aquaman? I know I'm mixing toylines here, but...

Hawkman and Green Arrow should definitely be a two-pack..."Now with Political Argument Action!"

But hopefully we do get all these characters in some Mego-like form.

Rob, Batman & Robin are by Carmine Infantino and the Teen Titans art look like they are by Dick Giordano. Speaking of Robin, why are there two separate Robins AND a Nightwing? Weird.

I just ordered myself an Aqualad. :-) Twenty-five bucks seems high, but I've wanted one of these for my entire life, so compared to that it's well worth it....

they show these cool Lopez illustrations then we end up getting Aquaman wearing mittens and long johns.
