    Like the artist could do that, when Mattel gives them orders and restrictions on what to have.

    I'm glad they got old-skool talent Rudy Obrero for the maps. No offense to Emiliano but Rudy's work is fantastic.

    Emiliano: Can you possibly give us a vertical poster-version of this art? Please?

    I didn't mean any offence to Rudy Obrero. The maps he did are fantastic, it's just that Emiliano is also an extremely gifted artist and I would wajor that he's the best artist that's the most knowledgeable on PoP and MOTU.

    So, I mean he wouldn't just draw in Crystal Falls, but give Mattel a ring and ask about it and they would go "Oh, thank God you noticed we missed putting 1 of the 2 PoP playsets on the map, which happens to be a main character's home. We would have looked like FOOLS!"

    Ironically, Crystal Falls is Mermista's home and they have her on the map (the size of Beast Island, no less) swimming. I find that very weird.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Here's my own take on what I would have done for the Aquaman vs Mer-Man 2-pack.
    I hope for the chance to do some art for MOTUC too, maybe one day!

    Any chance you'll be selling these (minus logos) as prints? I'd definitely buy one Emiliana...PM me if something like this can be done

    Wow, that side by side really magnifies how much better your interpretation is, Emil. It's a real shame that you weren't given the job.

    I'd expect to see someone do a carded custom of this two pack with your art, Emiliano. Yeah this is leaps and bounds ahead of the coloring book art we got for these two packs. Still wish I could hunt these down at my local TRU.

    WOW. It's like ice cream covered in awesome sauce.

    Looking at the package art that they are using, Mer-Man's sword doesn't line up correctly. The Bade and the hilt are completely off. Very disappointing.

    Forget Matty, someone send this to DC comics and give Emilliano a job there STAT! They are finally making Aquaman cool again instead of a running joke that even Robot Chicken can't make funny anymore.
    Visit my art page at: http://theblock.deviantart.com/ , if you like my work and have an account there to, feel free to fave or watch me, I could use the street cred !

    Unfortunately, it's very ulikely.
    It's fun, but I rarely have time and I got a tons of other things to work on.
    When I have free time, I like to work on MOTU products ideas and designs Mattel will never see

    As ever - Emiliano, brilliant work, easily more dynamic and graceful than the work exhibited on the back card. However, maybe Mattel briefed to have the cardback art we were given to have a kind of one-sheet comic-book feel, which it pastiches very well.

    I'd have to say Emil's artwork looks about 100 times better than what we actually got. You dropped the ball on this one Mattel.
