NEW FRONTIER Aquaman figure!

Darwyn Cooke wrote a pitch-perfect tribute to the Silver Age of comic books with the NEW FRONTIER series.  At the center of the story was the origin of the Justice League of America.  DC Comics grabbed on to the popularity of the book and released seven figures of the JLA "big" eight members.

They forgot Aquaman.

After recently re-reading the book, I was inspired to right this wrong:

I had seen a similar figure on the net and used a NEW GODS Metron body with the Hal Jordan head that came with my NEW FRONTIER Green Lantern figure.  I sculpted gloves on the body and added calf fins.  In the NEW FRONTIER, Aquaman doesn't have the black trunks, but I think they add great contrast.  

The Justice League of America, Darwyn Cooke style!

A great book and a fun animated movie, now the team is complete!


  1. Oh my!

    I think I know what I want for Christmas! :)

    1. Hi Scott- Happy Easter!

      IF you have the NF Green Lantern Hal Jordan head, this is an easy build.

  2. Love love love... Forever my hero! ;)

  3. Hey Miguel!

    Very do-able!
