Can anybody tell me, if the regular edition of the Thing PF has a visible line at the neck? I heard it's one piece and the Excl. comes with two different heads, so does the Reg. look better with the standard head?

JosephCPR
07-26-2011, 08:22 AM
I don't get what you mean by "visible line in the neck". It is certainly there but not visible at all.

Both heads look really nice although I really liked the EX the most. At least that is the one I had on display for the longest tiime.

I sold it a couple of months ago, it was just a space eater. I still miss him :(

I have the Modern Ex. (no switch-out head) and I don't notice a seam. It may be there, but it's never bothered me.

Mister Ski

No visible neck seams on mine. I display mine with the EX head.

phantom
07-26-2011, 12:46 PM
Thank you all! :) What I meant was the difference between the regular edition and the Exclusive. From what I heard, the Reg. is one solid piece, so I wouldn't expect a line, where the head/neck begins. Since the Ex comes with two heads, I thought there must be a noticable line.

My confusion came from a picture like that:

http://cdn.webshopapp.com/f/zzc3bo/the-thing-14-premium-format-figure.jpg
Image source: http://cdn.webshopapp.com/f/zzc3bo/the-thing-14-premium-format-figure.jpg

But now that I saw some video reviews of the statue, I know that there isn't a seamless transitition between the neck and the rest of the body (that's what I thought, looking at the picture). The neck is supposed to be a little "deeper" because of the pose (hard to describe, but I hope you know, what I mean).

In this case, I think there isn't a difference between the Reg. and the Excl. with the regular head.

To make a long story short: The question has been answered, the riddle has been solved - thanks! :D

I bought the original way back when for less than $200 shipped! (Yeah its underrated) and I can see where the seam would be for the EX head if I look for it but on display it isn't noticeable.

Good question. If I remember right the art is the same, but it's been so long I can't remember (I had the EX Thing and decided to return Modern Thing, since I thought 2 of them was one too many).

Definitely the regular exclusive. Call me strange, but I think the big rock feet are one of the best parts of the statue. Plus I prefer the open mouth head, so it was a no brainer for me.

wow really?? I guess once it finally sold out a ssc, it eventually would end up heading up. This guy could've been had for below $200 a few years ago.

A very underrated piece imo. I've got both the reg ex. and the international ex. both are great pieces and a must have for anyone who wants a companion for the hulk pfs:lecture

This will be my first "hero" PF. I said I wasn't going to get into anything except horror/villains (mostly for money reasons), but every time I went through the "Show us your shelves" thread,and someone had Ben, it just stood out to me. Something about the relative simplicity of the design is appealing, combined with the 'heft'. Same could be said for the Hulk, but I just can't afford him yet.

Cheap!?! I would love an income where I could call Hulk cheap! :thud:

I strongly prefer the Gray one...nothing to do with the rarity/value, just really no comparison IMO. But, of course, that bumps the cost up.

Someday...up until then, Ben is going to have to fight the Red Skull (he is Jewish, after all...)

I think if you really want the Hulk PF, you just have to save & set some money aside until you can afford it. Good Luck Mighty G. I'm sure you will grace a Hulk PF in the very near future.

The one thing I was so impressed and surprised about, was the fact that the EX head actually had a set of upper teeth also....I had never seen a picture that showed that and thus didn't even know they were there behind his upper lip... Now that is attention to detail! :clap Anyway... here is a quick pic showing Ben's Chompers for those who have never seen.

Now if i could get a green hulk....I want hulk B.A.D. :gah:

My First Mod!
I'm not in the habit of modifying any of my statues but...since I've had the Thing PF I have been on the look out for something that would make a cool FF4 belt buckle. I can't believe he didn't come with a belt buckle. :slap

Anyway...I wanted more then just a sticker...it needed to have some thickness and be hard... basically it needed to look like something Sideshow would have done.

Well I came up with it....finnally. Not gonna believe it, but I used SHRINKY DINKS printer paper. My son got some shrinky dinks for Christmas and he and his mom were making some of these things the other day and it hit me...if I could print the FF4 symbol on my printer on to Shriky Dink paper and shrink it down it becomes about the thickness of a penny and hard like polystone.

Long story short, it turned out exactly how I
wanted, :yess: so I thought I would post a couple pics of my Thing PF with his new belt buckle.

Sorry to hear that but your chances are zero. You might be able to get a partial refund on this. I have a feeling that all these recently "found" statues are previous damaged returns.

You have a better chance by selling it and maybe making a little profit? Replace is almost out of the question by now.

I got a regular for less than SSC's original price back in November. It's an awsome statue. I don't even need all of the FF, I just hope they make a 1/4 Human Torch comiquette to display with it. Make a Dr. Doom 1/4 in some kind of standing pose to face off against, and that's epic.

That might be a very good possibility if/when they ever make the doom comiquette.

Does anyone have a pic of what this looks like in a Besta? I know he is "deeper" than the cabinet, but I was wondering how it looks...

Is it just the fist that comes out?

Thanks!

congrats on everyone that has this piece. I was tempted until i saw the wierd paint application by Sideshow where he has the funny sun-tan paintwork down one side...why would they do this? For me it kinda spoils it and as a perfectionist its something that i couldnt overlook. It is a monster piece though! :horror

The Sue Storm statue was from a different line, called WOMEN OF MARVEL, in 1/5 scale, which I think is dead already.

I do love this piece and am still contemplating getting it one day to display alongside my Hulk PF...

One thing i was put off by when seeing this PF was the strange shading of colour that is noticable on the inner side of Things body....almost like a shadow effect if you like. For those who already own this statue, is that difference in colour a put off for you and why is it even there anyway? :dunno

I guess they wanted to give him extra volume by adding an artificial shadow, but that was completely unnecessary. It doesn't put me off in the slightest, though.

Great detail and size for one of my favorite Marvel characters. Best Thing statue out I think and the ex head is pretty cool. The shading doesn't bother me any. While not heavy like the og Hulk pf, still solid with some heft. Bigger than the Skaar pf.

Hi Chris, I got an Ex for sale if you are still interested. Getting out of Marvel Statues and this has to go. Everytime I think about Thing I start thinking what other characters it would look good with, that's bad hah. Why did you sell yours in the first place, you had the Reg?

Regarding the coloring on his chest, ya it is noticable if you look for it. Truthfully when I look at the Thing my gaze always goes to the headsculpts and his huge mits kinda obscure his torso.

I don't think they'd begin with another Ben.

See, a well done Johnny might be a thing to behold.
(Er, a human torch to behold?)

And Sue is a woman. We all know how SS love their T&A. Nuff said.

Reed, on the other hand, would probably be the toughest to sell, but one more piece isn't that hard for completists.

PM sent. I sold him because I had to. We had little space at that time and the big guys had to go (was about 3 years ago). I only took 350 Euro shipped for him because nobody on the German forum did even contact me for him :slap It's kind like now with the Bucky Cap EX PF. It was the EX and I got it directly from Sideshow UK when he was released.

Hope you find one again soon. He is a great statue! If you were in the USA Mine would be sold to you already. the boxes this big sending overseas is a big risk of it getting there safe, customs, insurance issues, etc. I see him for sale all the time one will pop up for you. :wave

Don't have Hulk PF sadly, but looking at my Thing and him not fitting in a Besta, I think he is a tad shorter but also wider and deeper than Hulk.

Yea, I think I was one of those put off by it but I think I'm back in the zone to picking one of these guys up again and possibly having it repainted without any shadow. I think he makes for a great display companion next to the original Hulk PF. I know they did two versions of this, one with the full pants and one with the shorts...I personally prefer the shorts version as that's how I remember him from my childhood :)

I'd take a loss on the statue which is fine but most people wouldn't pay shipping unless its local. It's not bad, I really wanted it but it doesn't go with anything in my collection. They abandoned the Fantastic Four... kinda a sore thumb in my collection. I don't have the Hulk PF to go with it, and he's too big to put in a Besta shelf.

Oh man, I can relate to that. Used to have Thing Ex for a long time, without a doubt an impressive piece and awesome PF. But the size really hampers displaying it properly. Was able to sell it a few months back with a local pick up, after having it for sale for a year and a half. No regrets in selling, but I am glad to have owned Ben.
