Aquaman will rule in new DC films, but first as this Play Arts Kai figurine

During the superhero revival of the “Silver Age” 1950s and 1960s, Aquaman was re-introduced as one of the founders of the Justice League of America. As all interesting superhero characters are, Aquaman is tortured and conflicted, oscillating between his positions as a fallen king of Atlantis and brooding doer of good.

Square Enix introduces this new eight-inch component of their Play Arts Kai line for immediate availability. Posed very king-like with a trident at the ready in his left hand, he’s the perfect acquisition in advance of the recently announced 2016 film Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, where he will be played by Jason Momoa, and the upcoming 2018 offering where he will be starring in his own movie. Until then, get ready with this gorgeously painted PVC figurine.

A telepathic ability to communicate with marine life is only one of the superhuman skills Aquaman will bring to forthcoming films.

Undersea queen and lover of Aquaman is newest statue in the DC Cover Girls

Mera’s been the Queen of Atlantis for awhile — since 1963, in fact! The legendary partner of Aquaman is an amphibious alien known for being able to kinetically control water to create just about any kind of structure from it. With flaming red locks and elegant undersea garb, she’s a deep-sea vision worthy of artistic representation, and of your collection.

Both supporting character and protagonist in myriad DC story arcs since last century, she’s a timeless character and key persona who deserves the celebration she’s getting from the Jack Mathews Cover Girl collection. Designed by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Mathew’s sculpting talents are showcased in this 10-inch figure. As a tribute to The New 52, Mera has a limited run of only 5,200, so keep this in mind when you’re placing your next order!

Pictured in a graceful aquatic rise, Mera was named one of Comic Buyers' Guide 100 Sexiest Women in Comics.

Because pictures are fun! DC movies, 2016 ’til 2020

Where will you be in six years? Me, I’m a simple person — really, I’ll be happy if I can finally cook something other than ramen in 2020. But DC has far loftier goals than I, apparently. For all of you visual learners out there, here’s a graphic plan of DC movie titles for the next six 365-day carousels of humble human existence. Which will happen if the world doesn’t eventually succumb to a zombie-ebola apocalypse, that is.

ART FX AQUAMAN

The New 52 AQUAMAN looks awesome as a new 8-inch statue figure from Kotobukiya.

The current incarnation of Aquaman makes the character larger than life, with strength, intelligence, and powers that make him a valued member of the Justice League. Arthur appears here in the ARTFX+ lineup with a fantastic representation of those heroic ideals, standing with all of the quiet grace of an otherworldly ruler. Aquaman’s iconic costume is captured with every fine detail from the intricate overlapping scales of his metallic orange armor to the creases and pointed fins on his green pants and gloves. The muscular aquatic hero holds his mighty trident in his right hand, calmly staring down the threats arrayed before him from under his wavy blonde hair.

Standing nearly 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), Aquaman was sculpted by master artist Goutaro Takeuchi (Atelier Bamboo).

Flashpoint 4-Pack

The Flashpoint versions of The Flash, Wonder Woman, Emperor Aquaman and Batman have arrived as a 4-figure set, which also comes with an exclusive $500 poker chip from Wayne Casino. Each figure is about 6 inches tall and are a great buy to remind you of what was a very strange, but very memorable, period in DC’s history.

Brightest Day is Finally Here!

Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Deadman and Aquaman have finally arrived as the members of DC Direct’s new line. Based on the recent and hugely popular company-wide event, BRIGHTEST DAY, these 6-inch figures faithfully capture the best and most dynamic looks of these characters as they appeared on the pages of the connected comics.

You can grab these guys individually or as a set and they work great as both functional and display figures. Already planned are two more series to follow this one, where you’ll be able to snag Firestorm, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter and Mera (Series 2) and then Aqualad, Dove, Hawk and Jade (Series 3). Of course, if the wait is killing you, you can pre-order and make sure you get ‘em sent your way the second they’re shipped out!

COMING SOON: New YOUNG JUSTICE Figures

Fans of YOUNG JUSTICE will be pleased to see two waves of figures headed their way: 4- and 6-inch. The first wave of 6-inch figures only includes two characters–Robin and Artemis–but both look great and will make a pretty cool addition to your toy-shelf.

The rest are seen above and you can grab them in 2-packs or in a complete set of eight figures. The teams are as follows:
Batman / Robin
Aquaman / Aqualad
Flash / Kid Flash
Ras Al Ghul / Cheshire

If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll definitely want to snag these guys. And if you haven’t seen it yet, then…well, what are you waiting for?
