Our good friend Jay Piscopo and the folks at Nemo Publishing are once again teaming up with Capt’n Eli to introduce another action figure to the world! You may recall my love affair with Commander X, Piscopo’s other Mego-like figure. Jay has created a whole world of amazing characters that harken back to the days when comic books had more adventure and fun within the panels. Jay has worked with Dr. Mego to create several versions of Commander X in figure form, but now he is officially announcing the popular Sea Ghost figure!
What makes Sea Ghost so special, is that he’s such a great nod to Alex Toth’s designs. Jay has such a love and passion for these types of characters and Sea Ghost really seems to have an incredible appeal. I reviewed the first Sea Ghost comic a couple of years ago and I am so excited to see this character finally come to life as an action figure.
And if you pre-order now, you can snag this guy for only $16! That’s $4 off the regular pirce. You can’t hardly find any Mego figures for that price, much less one that’s so awesome. Sea Ghost is a completely original character that’s growing as a property all the time. Support independent artists and pick this figure up for yourself, your kids or anybody you know! I’ve already put in my pre-orders for a few! Quantities are limited so get this guy while you can!
And while you’re over at the Capt’n Eli Homepage, you can pick up some of Jay’s comics for discount prices. Sea Ghost #1 is there, along with the two Capt’n Eli Graphic novels, which feature Commander X and the Sea Ghost!
Check out the offical press release:
(Portland, ME) Nemo Publishing announced today that pre-orders are officially open for The Sea Ghost action figure. Sea Ghost’s first appearance was in The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli Vol 1 and was so loved that the character spawned his own title in Sea Ghost #1: The Sea Ghost In The Machine and now he’s available as his own action figure. The 8” figure has a special pre-order price of $16 instead of the regular price of $20. The run will be limited so fans should not delay placing an order at www.captneli.com. The collectible “maker” action figure is based on the classic Mego-style. Original character designed by Capt’n Eli and Commander X creator Jay Piscopo and handcrafted with the help of Paul “Dr Mego” Clarke.
The head was created by custom toy artist Troy Younger. Piscopo explains, “The Sea Ghost figure was the next logical step after the success of the Commander X Figure. Sea Ghost is the one figure that resonates with all toy and comic collectors.” Book 3 in the The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli is due out this summer. New to the world of Captn Eli?
