The Thing Premium Format Figure

Jay Cochran - October 26, 2007
The Sideshow Exclusive version of The Thing Premium Format figure includes a unique display option. You will receive two interchangeable Thing heads, one with the mouth open and teeth flashing angrily, one with the mouth closed in a hard scowl.

"It's clobberin' time!"

Sideshow Collectibles and Marvel Comics are proud to present the Premium Format figure of The Thing! Standing with his fists curled and a scowl on his face, there's no need to check your watch, because the look on his mug tells you that "It's Clobberin' Time!" Cast in high-quality polystone, each piece is hand-finished and hand-painted to exacting standards, the ever-lovin' blues eyed Thing stands over 20-inches tall atop the display base, wearing a fabric replica of his 'first appearance' original costume. From the 'grim' expression to the cracks, crevices and texture of his rocky hide, The Thing Premium Format figure is a piece that even Ben's Aunt Petunia would gladly display on her knickknack shelf.

Growing up in a rough neighborhood on New York City's Lower East Side, Benjamin Grimm relied on street smarts and had little need for school studies. However, his tough street-scrapper upbringing translated into success on the football field and gave him the chance to attend Empire State University on a full scholarship. It was there that he would meet his lifelong friend, Reed Richards. When Reed shared his dream of building a space rocket, Ben joked that he'd love to be the one to fly it. As fate would have it, Ben eventually became an Air Force test pilot. and Reed built that rocket ship. Along with Reed's girlfriend Sue and her brother Johnny, Ben and Reed took the rocket into space, where they encountered a cosmic storm. The ship and its four passengers were pelted by cosmic rays, and learning that the rays had given each of them superhuman abilities, they dubbed themselves The Fantastic Four! Ben's skin became thick and orange, and he was granted super strength and near invulnerability. Ashamed of his disfigurement, he chose the superhero name, The Thing. With his trademark orange rocky hide, The Thing is easily one of Marvel comics most recognizable and beloved characters - a rough and rocky, wisecracking hero with a heart of gold.
