Shambing Mound ()
Shambing Mound Visitor George brought to my attantion a 4 Inch rubber figure made by TSR that looks very much like Man-Thing. His research unearth that it is the Dungeons & Dragons figure called Shambling Mound, #36 of the 80 figures produced in the Harbringer series. © TSR Hobbies Inc 1982.
Details for players..
Ecology: Shambling mounds dwell in thickly over grown swamps or in exceedingly wet and fetid subterranean locals. Mounds will feed on anything organic, including other plants and animals, as well as the living and the dead. Other questions, such as how they breed and how long they live, is unknown. Some believe that shambling mounds are enraged manifestations of the swamps in which they dwell. Others say that are elemental spirits gone wrong.
Appearance:A shambling mound is a tall heap of rotting vegetation. It smells rank and water runs freely from the shambling mound's body. The creature also drips slime and liquid mud as it walks.
The Shambling Mound first appeared in the official newsletter of TSR Games, The Strategic Review #3, August 1975, turned up in the first edition Monster Manual (1977), and has been updated in recent years.

My thanks to George for the photograph, Chris Norton for pointing out the Monstor Manual appearance, and Adam Naworal for the links to iamges.
