DC Comics and Sideshow Collectibles Swamp Thing Maquette
The Avatar of the Green arises!
Swamp Thing Maquette and Cranius of the Un-Men
DC Comics and Sideshow Collectibles have created the richly detailed Swamp Thing Maquette. He measures 24” tall on an environmental polyresin base. The base of the Maquette has been designed to emulate the muck and mire from which he has emerged. There is a clear water feature beneath his feet. It also has a muddy embankment with trees and various swamp fauna. This Swamp Thing Maquette has an intricate tangle of vines, roots, and tendrils emerging from his body. They capture the movement of his ever-changing natural form. His form balances humanoid musculature with living, growing vegetation. Swamp Thing’s body is made with vinyl and PVC was used for his smaller parts to capture the immense detail in each layer of his form.
The tuberous growths on Swamp Thing’s back are a reference to the hallucinogenic sweet potatoes the character produces in the comics. His entire body has been painstakingly painted in a variety of earthen tones. Those tones give depth and texture to each of the various plants that make up his form. The Exclusive edition of the Swamp Thing Maquette includes Cranius of the Un-Men. Cranius measures 4” tall atop a proximity polyresin base that can be displayed near Swamp Thing for an enhanced display. Cranius himself is cast in translucent vinyl, giving this formidable foe of Swamp Thing a detailed and fleshy appearance.
