It’s clobbering time…again!

Diamond Select has finally re-released one of their most wanted Marvel Select action figure: The Thing!

So why it did take so long? I have my own theories. That being now that Disney has the movie rights back for the Fantastic Four, they are allowing merchandise to be made again. Of course, if Disney and Marvel weren’t being a bunch of little bitches about it, we could have got him sooner. 

But I digress.

This is an incredible figure. I missed it the first time around so I was so glad to get it the second time! This is an amazing sculpt. I love the look of the rocks on him. And the paint apps are really impressive as well. The shading on the rock and pants,  to Benjy’s blue eyes! Excellent job here.

The figure stands at 8 inches and is one solid figure. And when I mean solid, we are talking close to 3 pounds of plastic here! You could actually clobber someone with this guy, but please don’t!

In terms of points of articulation, the Thing has about 14. While there is no ab-crunch, there are still plenty of poses you can put him in.

I’m so glad Diamond re-released this figure. I know I needed him for my collection!

Many thanks to Diamond Select Toy for sending this to us to check out!
