Chronicle Collectibles has announced that they have acquired a license John Carpenter’s The Thing. Their first official product based on the iconic horror film will be included in this months Loot Crate DX box. The collectibles will be based on a sculpture by special effects artist Daniel J. Wagner. While the specific collectible is not named, Mr. Wagner is known for a stellar bust based on the twisted faces creature from the Norwegian camp (I’ve attached a photo of that sculpture). Here’s what Chronicle announced:
Look for our licensed product from John Carpenter’s The Thing.
This piece was inspired by a sculpture from Danny Wagner. We are huge Rob Bottin fans and there is a shout out to Rob on the box.

Thanks to Universal and Jeffery Lang. Sculpture by Dean Tolliver, Killer box by Bob Lindenmayer and art directed by Paul Francis.

This piece is a killer collaborative undertaking. Thanks Loot Crate for making this happen, we are very happy with the final product.
We’ll continue to cover the new items and even ordered this months Loot Crate DX box to check out the collectible for ourselves!
