Each week we like to track down some sort of cool comic book toy or collectible, rip open the box (actually open it very carefully) and take a close look at what's inside. Last month we got to check out the New 52 Justice League Batman action figure (that only came with a case because it was sent to us directly from DC Collectibles). This month Aquaman went on sale so of course I had to get my hands on him.

The packaging is similar to what Batman's would be like, just in a different color. It's a simple and elegant design that mimics the 'peeling' look of the new DC logo.

This will be one where deciding whether you'll open it or leave it in the package could be tough. The box is pretty cool looking. It's almost a bold statement with the color and silhouette of Aquaman.

For all the jokes Aquaman gets, there must be a reason why DC Collectibles decided to make him the second released figure in the line. And of course if you're reading the current AQUAMAN comic, you know he is a pretty cool character.

The back shows who's coming up next.

The Flash and a Parademon are listed as coming this month but DC's website says they're due later. I'll try to get a firm answer on that.

My box was a little bent in shipping. Since I planned on opening it, it didn't really matter. Toys should be opened after, right? Let the toys fulfill their purpose in life. They were meant to be opened and displayed or played with.

Speaking of opening, let's take a look at how he stands. These figures do not come with a display stand as the preview Batman figure we received did. But just like Batman, Aquaman doesn't need a display stand.

Yeah, no matter how cool he looks as an action figure and even if he comes with an actual chain, of course Batman won't give him the respect he deserves.

I debated on that last picture. He's supposed to be riding the dolphin as transportation. It might look like something else but get your minds out of the gutter. Clearly he has his pants on and we all know his pants doesn't have a zipper on them.

These next were at the front of the CBSi building. There's this little fountain type thing but unfortunately the water didn't really show up too well.

That last one was another sort awkward pose. It looked much better knowing he was sitting in a very shallow bit of water. Poor Aquaman...

That's it for this week. You can order this figure directly from DC Collectibles by clicking here. You can bet you'll be seeing others in this line as soon as I order them and they're released.

That Wonder Woman on the back of the box looks awesome.

ME ME ME. I WANT. But I'm waiting for the We can be heroes justice league set to come out in full, as a set.

The only thing I'm debating is whether or not to get the Darkseid figuring.

WHALES!

jokes aside he is right up there as DC's best heroes with Flash, Nightwing and New Guardians in my opinion.

Going to get this!

Aquaman is the beezneez. Enough said.

#9 Posted by goodgravy91 (1 posts) - - Show Bio

The dolphin's eyes really make me think otherwise.

Really though, Aquaman deserves the respect and this looks awesome.

i have this figure and mine has trouble standing his leg is slighty bent from package i guess and i unbend it and it just bends back anyone have a remedy for this

@sethysquare: That's exactly what I said. If I get Darkseid then I have to buy like 10 Parademons to go with him. Thats going to be expensive.

@G-Man: Actually, Tony, Aquaman is the third figure released in this line. The Hal Jordan figure was the second.

At least, my local comic book store has had it for the past few weeks now and just got the Aquaman one last week. Given the fact that the back of Aquaman's box says that The Flash and the Parademon figures are next to be released, I'm pretty sure the Green Lantern figure was released before.

I got Batman and Green Lantern a couple days ago. There are so frickn' awesome.

I left them in the box and put them right next to my PC and every time I look at them I want to unpack them. So cool!

Aquaman is next on my list. And I really looking forward to Flash and especially to Superman!!!

#14 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

@BatClaw89: Why do you need 10? Isn't 1 enough? lol

#15 Posted by TheMess1428 (2176 posts) - - Show Bio

@sethysquare: Darkseid has an army of parademons. Not 1. lol

Once again G-man continues to commit the cardinal sin and takes his figures out of the package.

Those wind up dolphins are the coolest toys any child under the age of four can play with in the bathtub.

This Aquaman would be the coolest toy any adult could play within the bathtub!

Keep opening those boxes G-man... and play with your toys like a man!

He's supposed to be riding the dolphin as transportation. It might look like something else but get your minds out of the gutter. Clearly he has his pants on and we all know his pants doesn't have a zipper on them.

I assumed he was innocently riding the dolphin until you went and PUT my mind in the gutter. I think you are the guilty one here because you thought about it first, Mr G-man.

The new aquaman design looks rather cool but I hope he doesn't go on any stealth missions. The reflective and colorful properties of that suit probably won't work well.

Get the Darkseid figure! The bastard is almost 14 inches! I know it's sounds gay. But the figure looks awesome. I pre-order the We Can Be Heroes set and Darkseid. Also I'm buying like 5 Parademons to have a nice battle display! :-)

#31 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

@Knight_Justice: I'll seriously consider it. lol

Once the JLU and Darkseid figs get released, has DC Collectibles or DC Direct announced what they're going to release next? I'm still waiting to see if there will be even more over-sized figs to be released from the Arkham City wave.

@ArtisticNeedham: Release date is december.

UGH damn youDC! I have to feed myself and pay adult bills now! But I want to spend all my money on toys and comicbooks...

#35 Posted by StarKiller809 (1238 posts) - - Show Bio

The Aquaman is a cool figure. I really want the whole line but I'm not sure I have enough money just yet. Despite that he is cool, I still probably won't get him first, but eventually he will be mine.

Aquaman Rules!!

#37 Posted by EmmRoss (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Lee must have a thing for Aquaman, given he's one of the few characters who didn't really get one of his awful "Seams Galore 1992 Stylee" costume redesigns in the "Nu 52"

The bright blue jewelry is a little ill-judged though. Both he and Darkseid look like they're on their way to Mardi Gras via a disco in the late seventies.

I didn`t think so at all. I was thinking that he might be trying to kill the poor dolphin.

This figure looks awesome! Can't wait for the We Can Be Heroes set!

The comic shop I frequent has a huge toy selection. The original shipments of Batman and Green Lantern have still not sold out. The first shipment of Aquaman was completely snatched up in less than 24 hours! That's insane! Everyone makes fun of the poor guy but his action figure is super hot.

did only G-Man get a stand with his Batman figure? I didnt get one in the box... what about you guys?
