The aquatic superhero everyone loves has come to life. The new Sea Ghost action figure is now available in stores. Named “one of the coolest” superheroes of the seven seas by Robot 6, Sea Ghost was first seen in Jay Piscopo’s The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli. He quickly became a fan favorite, appearing in his own comic book, Sea Ghost #1: The Sea Ghost in the Machine. Now he’s available as an 8” action figure.
Distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors (Diamond Code: JUL142068), this collectible “maker” action figure is created in a retro-style reminiscent of those made by the Mego Corporation in the 1970s. This figure was designed by Jay Piscopo and handcrafted with assistance from Paul “Dr. Mego” Clarke.
This 8” figure is packaged in a sealed clam shell and features artwork by Sea Ghost creator Jay Piscopo. It can be ordered through Diamond Comic Distributors (Diamond Code: JUL142068) or purchased directly through Nemo Publishing at http://captneli.shipyardshopping.com/index.html.
Six years ago, Nemo Publishing released its first limited edition Mego-style action figure of the retro hero Commander X. Today, the Nemo collection has grown to include 14 action figures, including the exciting new Sea Ghost figure. Piscopo explains, “The Sea Ghost action figure was the next logical step after the success of the Commander X action figure line. Sea Ghost truly resonates with all toy and comic collectors.”
