#AquaMonday Episode 004 – @SchleichTweets Justice League #Aquaman PVC
September 5, 2016

Welcome to episode 4 of our new ongoing series of videos called AquaMonday! Each week we take a look at an Aquaman item in my collection.  Sometimes it’s a new item, some times a classic item and sometimes they will be unique custom or home-made items!
In this episode we are looking at the new Schleich New 52 Aquaman PVC figure from their Justice League line.   This figure is available as both a single release and in a multi-pack with the rest of the Justice League line.

Here’s the write up for the figure on the official Schleich website:

AQUAMAN™

Aquaman is the ruler of the Kingdom of Atlantis. He can breathe under water and swim incredibly fast. He combats evil together with the other Justice League heroes.

Item: 22517

AQUAMAN™

Aquaman wears a telepathically controlled arm prosthetic.

Aquaman is one of the Justice League DC super heroes. He is the ruler of the Kingdom of Atlantis, the hidden city in the sea. He can therefore not only breathe under water, but also communicate with all aquatic creatures by means of telepathy. He swims at an unimaginable speed and is also nearly just as fast on land. He combats the evil of the world side by side with his Justice League friends.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
