The DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set: A Look at AquamanFebruary 24, 2014
Weve featured Green Lantern and The Flash from the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set, and next up is the valiant King of Atlantis, Aquaman. Sporting the re-imagined costume and visage created by the legendary comic book artist Jim Lee for The New 52, this 6.75 inch recreation of the Marine Marvel is one of the most finely cast of the collection’s assortment of heroes.
Like other figures in DCs mid-range line of collectibles, Aquamans face and body sculpt strike a satisfying balance between artistic styling and comic book authenticity. Its evident that considerable attention was put toward capturing the subtle contours and golden luster of Aquamans scaled armor tunic as both the detailing and painted finish are well done.
When it comes to accessories, Aquaman is favorably appointed with both his necklace and trident crafted to scale. The latter even comes with a metal chain affixed to the figures molded belt that serves to further bolster the presentation.
Despite the impressive aesthetic and robust construction, Aquamans poseability is fairly limited. Like the other figures in the set, these are best suited for display rather than extensive manipulation. On a shelf arrayed alongside his fellow Justice Leaguers, the limited articulation tends to fade from concern.
Boasting the optimal blend of quality, authenticity, and price, the Aquaman figure is another compelling argument for the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set. Its a worthy acquisition thats bound to appeal to the range of fans from the casual to avid enthusiast. Well be featuring the rest of the figures soon, but for now check out more of our shots of the miniature Aquatic Ace below.
