Swamp Thing Coming From DC Collectibles

While he wasn’t mentioned on the recently released DC Collecitbles solicitations, it seems that were getting one final figure in the ‘New 52’ toyline in the form of Swamp Thing! This figure is based on the characters appearance in ‘Justice League Dark’ and is set to hit stores this November with a suggested retail price of $35. This price point has lead people to speculate that this figure will be taller than most of the DC Collectibles ‘New 52’ series figures, most likely standing at around 10″ tall rather than the standard 6″ scale.
