DC Direct Heroes of the DC Universe Bust

DC Direct: Heroes of the DC Universe Bust – Series 2, 2011
Statue: s12, Box: s11, NOV110245

Around the time the New 52 was kicking off in 2011, this beautiful statue of our beloved Muck Monster was released. I made sure to pick one up around the time of its release, anticipating that it’d sell like hot cakes. It’s one of my favorite statues.

Statue Detail Images:
Swamp Thing’s abs are nuts! I love the details throughout, the wildlife clinging to him look great. I often think of this statue as the Ron Perlman/Party Swamp Thing.
