Wearin’ O’ the Green…
If there’s a bit of spanish moss hanging out of your chimney this coming Christmas it might mean you’re the lucky recipient of one of DC Collectibles New 52 Swamp Thing Deluxe Action Figures.
I snapped these glimpses of the great green one at Toy Fair last February and was quite impressed with its proportions and detail. Standing at nearly 10” tall, it sports a 15” wingspan and 23 points of articulation.
The sculpt is based on Steve Snyder and Yanick Paquette’s re-spin of the character originally envisioned by writer Len Wein and artist Berni Wrightson. The stag horn style head gear lends an elemental grandeur to the environmental avenger. He’ll come equipped with sword and shield accessories to turn enemies into greasy grimy gopher guts.
Slated for December 2013 release, pre-order street price seems to be approximately $75.00. Be kind to Mother Nature and maybe she (or your wife) will put this puppy in your paws and make your collector friends green with envy.
