This Swamp Thing Statue from DC Direct/Vertigo was released in 1996. It stands 11″ tall, is cold cast porcelain and was hand-painted.

lips are Swampy’s real source of power. Look at those powerful, puckered smackers.

the detail work is great. I’ve always thought that it must be bitter sweet to work on a character like Swampy. He is amazing so I’m assuming many artists want to work on him but handling the level of detail when drawing him must be a difficult task.

The statue is #1,458 of 2,500. It could be 1,453; the last digit was written small and bled into a blob of a number, making it difficult to read. I should dig out the box it came in to verify.
