A couple weeks back I posted images of the Swamp Thing camouflage figure with it’s mysterious variant. I scoured the internet for an explanation as to why two different versions were produced but couldn’t find any information. With a little luck I was able to track down this Kenner Legacy magazine that explained it all.
The Kenner Legacy magazine comprised of 18 parts (issues). The magazine focused on the history of Kenner, featuring a great deal of their merchandise. But the only important merchandise can be seen below… ok, and on the cover. I do enjoy Wyld Stallyns in tuxedo jackets and stage diving Batman.
I’m surprised that I came fairly close to guessing why the camouflage variant figure exists. My deductive reasoning is better than I thought.
It looks like Kenner made a mistake and had to re-release the figure.
