Hands down DCUC Aquaman wins!  The "history" figure looks a little goofy with his hands out like that and his neck muscles are just a bit overdone.  I don't like the happy face either.  No accessories means no purchase. 

The "Classics" figure has the scaled shirt, trident and just a better neck/head design. 

I don't care so much about articulation b/c I'm a MOC collector but the DCUC just b#($ slap the History figures.
