DC Direct Swamp Thing Action Figure – 1999
Once, it seemed he was an unthinking monster, a bizarre combination of scientist Alec Holland and the swamp itself. Now, the truth is clear: the Swamp Thing is an earth elemental- a being of vast power whose role as guardian of all plant life sets him forever above and apart from the human race.
Based on the sculpt of William Paquet and inspired by Michael Zulli’s original Swampy design, this 6 3/4” action figure casts a long shadow. It’s tough to find a better looking Swamp Thing action figure. The figure came with optional rosebush attachments to replace the hands. Although the figure has various points of articulation, the options for posing are quite limited.
The figure was styled after a similar statue, released in 1996. See details of the statue here.
