In a Facebook live video, Chronicle collectibles talked about numerous items, such as Jurassic World, Terminator and Vikings. But the biggest news (to me) is they revealed that they will be creating statues based on John Carpenter’s The Thing! Along with the announcement, they shared the first concept sketches for their R.J. MacReady, Blair, Bennings and Clark statues. These were previously talked about in a podcast, but now we know what the plan currently is. Right now, they want to start with the main cast from the film, which also includes Windows, Fuchs, Childs, Copper, etc. These will be 1/9 scale statues, much like their Fallout – Nuka Cola Girl, or Viking – Ragnor Statues. That should mean the plan is for these to be in the $90 to $100 price range each, making them far easier to collect for statue fans on a budget.
These are still early in development, so not much else is known. We will update as more details become available. Read on for some screen shots of the sketches.
