Joining previously released Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, Batman, and Robin is the king of the seven seas: AQUAMAN! Retro is in and you can celebrate the great action figures of yesteryear with this vintage-inspired half-human/half-Atlantean Justice Leaguer resembling a classic five points-of-articulation toy. An all new sculpt updates the classic style yet retains the nostalgic feel, and collectors will immediately recognize the inspiration for this look. Aquaman surveys the world above and below the waves for trouble, and his iconic costume is in full effect with its scalloped orange shirt, green gloves and lower-body suit (with fins), black trunks, and yellow belt. The blonde amphibious hero smiles confidently, and you can display him with his trademark golden trident in either of two poses!

Sculpted by Naoya Muto, Aquaman Classic Costume ARTFX+ stands over 7 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base with perfect stability. Display him alone or collect all of the DC Comics Classic Costume Statues like Superman, Batman, and the Flash!
