Way back in February, Pop Culture Shock teased a 1/6 Scale R.J. MacReady Figure from John Carpenter’s The Thing. After the initial tease, we didn’t hear anything. they never showed the prototype at any conventions ,and never mentioned it again. Then, earlier this evening, the Pop Culture Shock newsletter came in. It contained the usual updates. Pre-order this, shipping dates on that, etc. I didn’t think there was going to be anything of note. Then, at the very end, they dropped a new preview image…The Thing 1/6 Scale Figures are coming in 2016! A new, shadowy photo of MacReady figure was included with the announcement. As a huge fan of this movie, I’ll be following this closely. We’ll have more as it becomes available.
See the preview after the jump.
