John Carpenter’s The Thing is my #1 all-time favorite film. Sadly, most toy companies have shied away from collectibles based on the property recently. Back in 2013, Pop Culture Shock teased the license acquisition for The Thing, but we’ve heard nothing since. Thankfully, the folks over at Itakon.it have broken that silence and posted a photo showing the in-progress sculpt for a collectible based on Kurt Russell’s R.J. MacReady. Even better is that they claim this will be for a 1/6 scale figure and not a statue!
The sculpt is still very early in development. We’ll update when more images and info becomes available. Read on to see the image.
