JLA Action figure – the best Swamp Thing figure in a while

Justice League Action Swamp Thing action figure
Release Date: To be determined

A new Swamp Thing figure is on its way and there hasn’t been an action-packed Swampy figure like this since the 90s Kenner line. Swamp Thing’s plant club can be shot from his wooden shield. Both items can be used separately, as well as mounted on his back. The figure’s simple design—mimicking the JLA Action series character design—looks great. Paired with the accessories, this is the most fun Swamp Thing figure to be released in a while. But, it isn’t available just yet…

I was tipped-off that a new Swamp Thing action figure was floating around on Ebay earlier this week and immediately looked into it… and purchased it. This 4″ action figure may be an early release of some kind but with a package date of 2017. I asked fellow collectors and did some digging online but my investigating yielded no results. Turns out, googling “justice league action action figure” will provide you with every JLA action figure under the sun, but no trace of a JLA Action Swamp Thing figure. The seller of the figure told me he picked the item up at a Ross store in California and that it was the only one there.

I can’t confirm but was told that news of the release may be announced at the upcoming 2018 Toy Fair.

it’s  not entirely clear but it appears the Justice League Action figure accessories are interchangeable and can be used for various characters, seen below.

I’m hoping more info will come to light as the year progresses. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further news. Hopefully Swampy’s projectile club won’t hold the same fate as the Bobba Fett rocket-pack.
