    This requires a bit of back story...

    I've been getting into comics hardcore again, more specifically DC Comics and more specifically than that, Aquaman. It's stems from a strange childhood facination of the character. But anyway, I've been collecting anything and everything I can of him for the past month or so and I really wanted to pick up the DC Direct statue they made of him but it rarely pops up on eBay, and when it does it was about $100 over retail price.

    Well, me and my wife went on vacation this week for our anniversary/my birthday/spring break. While we were there I decided to look up any comic shops in the area, well I found one and when we got there I was a bit let down because it looked pretty sorry from the outside. When I opened the door I saw walls lined with figures and an entire wall full of statues and busts. Not only that, but a glass case of full size statues with this guy front and center:

    After debating on whether to get it or not I decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did! I love it! It's pretty much the perfect silver-age depiction of Aquaman. Only problem now is I want more DC Direct statues, and I need a nice curio cabinet to put him in!

    Congrats on your catch but be warned...statues are addictive and more expensive than collecting TFs!

    Wow, they managed to make Fish Cracker look badass. I wonder what they could do for Toyman.
