Trivia

In 1990, Kenner produced a line of Swamp Thing action figures with vehicles & playsets that served as a direct counterpart to the animated series. Arcane and his Un-Men include translucent, rubbery BioMask accessories that give the effect of their transformation into monstrous creatures. Their eyes also glow-in-the-dark, a popular feature in action figures of the era. Arcane's transducer machine even includes a Mantid figure that referenced an episode where Bayou Jack is mutated. Some accessories would also be reused for Hasbro's The Original Battle Trolls in 1992. According to an online fan source, Kenner invested approximately 6 million dollars into the Swamp Thing figure line. It also states that, according to Kenner, test results using male children between the ages of 6 and 11 showed them to be more popular than both G.I. Joe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It had been speculated throughout the toy collecting community that Swamp Thing would have been included in the unproduced fourth series of Kenner's Super Powers Collection and that Bio-Glow Swamp Thing may have been based on the prototype. This is due to the figure's swinging arm feature similar to that seen in the Super Powers Collection. However, such rumors have since been refuted by the uncovering of new information regarding the proposed fourth and fifth series of the Super Powers Collection. See more »

"Swamp Thing" on a "Swamp"
5 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

"You'll be the main course and your friend will be dessert! CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" Skin Man's scene where he firsts comes out of the Transducer (Trademarked by DC) is the best thing ever.This pilot episode cures depression. Best use of a guitar solo ever!!!!!!!!! This is my favorite possession ever. If anyone has a swamp thing toy I will buy it. Swamp Thing bananananana you make my heart sing Arcane is bad so come on, fight for right, we need you. Weed Killer has the best death scene in cinema history and jazz hands (click-click-click-click-click) Buy this show and watch it with your friends and you will never frown again, it is that funny. "You can't mutate a mutant".
