‘The Thing’ and ‘An American Werewolf in London’ Figures Shown at #SDCC

Pop Culture Shock showed off their 7″ figures for An American Werewolf in London and John Carpenter’s The Thing at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. The former features Jack and David as well as David in werewolf form. The latter gives us R.J. MacReady as well as the Norris spiderhead monstrosity.

No price points or release dates were attached.

    According to a comment they’ve posted in IG they should be taking pre-orders around Halloween.

    I don’t really care too much for action figures, but holy shit that THE THING one is badass. WANT!

  • Grimphantom

    Wow, nice to see some 7 inch figures of these franchise! MacReady looks so cool! Must have! I do wish they made more of the Thing creatures.

    • J Jett

      Grim, same here. i love the spider head creature figurine but i too wish they had made one or two additional creatures. maybe the 2 face/melted face creature?

      • Grimphantom

        Palmer Thing never had a figure, of all the Things it was the only one not getting one. I do hope they make new version of the Norris and Blair Thing. We do get the Spider Head but hopefully get the other Norris Thing as well.

          Ooooooohhhh…. Bennings should get a figure along with Palmer. That fucking scream still haunts my dreams.

          • Grimphantom

            I forgot about Bennings, i think they should make one too. If the make the Palmer thing, they should have Windows where he’s trying to devour him.

            It’s starting to sound like different types of Pokemon.

  • Ima Badlady

    I’m not gonna let this one get awayfrom me!!!

    • Yakushiji Tenzen

      lol “you gotta be fucking kidding….”

      • Ima Badlady

        One of the best one liners in this film.

  • J Jett

    how much do you guys think the THE THING figures will be?

    • gabriel

      Probably a better deal than the special edition Thing blu-ray offered by Scream Factory. They are so expensive

  • ShadowInc

    Pretty cool, but why didn’t they have make the rotting ghost version of Jack?

    • Uter

      Oh don’t worry, they’ll undoubtedly release endless variants until they’ve milked every drop.

  • Mike

    I want that werewolf. Hopefully its around 25 to 30 bucks.

    The small amount of The Thing merchandise that was made is very hard to come by (for a decent price and in good condition). The best known are probably the two produced by Mcfarlane Toys as part of their Movie Maniacs line of figures. They made a Norris thing (which also came with a little spider head thing) and they made the Blair thing (That’s the only one I have been able to snag). SOTA made a fantastic diorama set featuring Macready and the dog thing as part of their Now Playing line (I still hate myself for letting that one get past me). SOTA also produced a mini bust of the spider head thing.

    I am way too excited to see The Thing getting attention from the horror movie figure world again. It’s even better that Macready is getting the figure treatment once more (I am still completely enamored with Kurt Russell’s performance in this film). I’m pushing my luck here, but I hope one day that they will make a figure based on Palmer’s thing.

    Sorry about that brief history of Thing figures that no body asked for.

    • Yakushiji Tenzen

      Don’t be, most welcomed. Had no idea there were so many figures already out there. Awesome stuff.

  • chien_clean

    looks good but I think the werewolf is rather small. Would rather have one big werewolf and not have the humans

  • zombie84_41

    I want it but it prob be 300$ and I’m not rich enough to drop an insane ammount of money on such things no matter how much I love the movies.

  • Daniel

    Let’s just hope that the Kessler wolf figure actually gets to see the light of day this time! Unlike when it was originally supposed to be released as part of the Movie Maniacs line. I was so bummed when that happened 🙁
