Swamp Thing Mego Style

DC Comics Retro 8” Action Figure Series – 2020

In November of 2020, Figures Toy Company released this fantastic Mego inspired Swamp Thing figure. I picked one up when they became available and am finally getting around to sharing it on the site. Figures Toy Company did a terrific job with the figure and packaging. The design of the figure is inspired by Bissette/Totleben’s Swamp Thing, as indicated by the “1987” on the back of the packaging (see images below). The packaging design also feels of the era, with artwork inspired by Bissette/Totleben. Although, the packaging illustrations look more friendly/whimsical like the artwork used on Swamp Thing collectibles in the early 90s.

The onesie suit looks great and is a fun way to show off Swampy’s texture in a simple way. The Rick Flair looking green fur is a bit cheesy but I really like it.

The details in the head looks great! The figure is detailed and simplified in all the right places.

The back of the packaging is as cool as the front. The monotone background reminds me of the illustrations within the DC’s Who’s Who books from the 80s.
