DC Essentials Swamp Thing figure

DC Essentials Swamp Thing figure
The new Swamp Thing figure hit the shelves Wednesday and I’ve been hearing less than pleasing reactions.
I am pleased as punch to see another Swampy figure but I have some pretty strong Swamp blinders on at all times. Characters that are more obscure than Swampy get their shot at figures more often than not, it seems. More Swamp Thing action figures, the better.

The design and build looks almost identical to the New 52 action figure but without the wings and armor/antler details. The similarities seem to be a point of contention with other Swampy fans. The figure would have been a great opportunity for DC to redesign and re-imagine Swamp Thing. Since most die-hard fans picked up the winged New 52 figure, I’d imagine they would be hesitant to purchase this similar figure, especially at the price of $40.

When it comes down to it, this is a great looking figure. It’s nice to see Swamp Thing back in figure form.
