There were all sorts of "ambiguously gay duo" jokes floating around about this set when it was new.

Seeing that pic brings them all back to mind....
:oops:

Don't ask me what Aqualad is pointing to.


I have this. Great set. Sadly, it's the only Garth figure we've ever gotten from DCD. I like Kaldur a lot, but it kinda annoys me that he's got more figures than the classic Aqualad.

And don't get me started about not having ANY Tempest figures. :evil:

I would pick this up if the seahorse was bigger and out of the water more to give my DCUC Aquaman something to ride. I'm looking for the early Marvel Legends Namor stand, the water thing he came with!

I have my Aqualad/Aquaman set displayed inside a fish bowl. It looks great.

Well, DCD's Garth was the second one made...

And I now have a second DC Direct figure, I won John Constantine on card for $4.99... I was excited! Now I need the DCUC Swamp Thing to complete this awesome Vertigo duo!

I think he meant to say the DC Direct Swamp Thing is a little short.. because he is. If I remember he's even a little shorter than the John figure.

The Mattel DCUC one is large- like 10" tall.

Hey Van,

shoot me a PM of the DC Direct figures you are looking for. I've got most of them, loose but complete, in boxes in my basement collecting dust and in need of good homes.

I could probably help you out in a biggish type lot.

Just an FYI ...

Hey all. Noob here. This is my first DC Direct, frm Arkham City line, Robin! I choose this over the Mattel version simply because this version, he comes with his Bo staff and he can hold it with both his hands! Anyway, check out the pics:
