After running the Shrine for over eight years, I really did think that I had seen every piece of Aquaman merchandise there was. But here comes newest F.O.A.M. member John Shirley to prove me wrong, with these photos of an Aquaman "metal figurine" hailing from Argentina!
No matter how you slice it (not that you could, because it's metal), this is one weird item. The drawing of Aquaman looks, uh, a little less than professional grade, and what's with the stock art on the card? A Jim Aparo drawing from the cover to World's Finest #250, featuring The Creeper, no less? Was there a Creeper figurine for this line? If so, this has got to be the only time the character has appeared on a piece of licensed merch, pre-DC Direct. Someone needs to start a Creeper Shrine blog and figure this out.
John also sent another piece of heretofore unknown piece of Aqua-Merch, but we'll get to that another day. In the meantime, let's all welcome him to F.O.A.M., he sure as Neptune earned it!
