8 Responses to Figure Review: Marvel Select Thing

  • fengschwing says:

    I almost got this guy, then I sold up on Marvel and didn't want to start buying them again. That said, he does look pretty awesome, minimal articulation or otherwise.
    I'm pretty sure I've seen him here in the UK with the hover board thing. Maybe I'm wrong…
    Anyway, top review, nice one.

  • Thanks.

    All the advertising here still shows him with the board deal, but it seems as though it got cut from the final release. Although perhaps the UK release got it? I suspect it was cut because of cost, which is fine. It's a huge figure and the little board wouldn't make or break it either way.

    man, he looks awesome! ive added him to my cart several times on amazon, but always remove him because of the negative articulation points everyone gives. still, he might be worth it to round out my fantastic 4. crap, i guess that mean i need a reed.

  • I think he's a big ol' block of awesome, but again, admittingly, I love the Thing.

  • fengschwing says:

    Ah, I expect I'm wrong then, he'd be an import over here anyway.
    Despite kicking the Marvel habit, I still find him really, really tempting…

    I love how he is sculpted but the only part that makes me not want to buy him are his pants,I don't like the thing wearing pants.

    I have every single figure of the THING except the MEGO THING which kinda gets iffies whenever i see him, but i do like this version– my best THING is the second wave of the TOYBIZ THING, "TWIST & SLAM THING http://marvelousnews.com/database/gv.php?dispsize… The cartoon was alright— was really mad mad when TOYBIZ cancelled this Thing– http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stories/0602/17/th

    The only thing figure I have is Hasbro's ML thing from a two pack. Although all the reviews I read say he's too short, I think he looks great.
    The only Marvel Select figure I have is Mk IV Iron Man, which was the Borders exclusive. I really like him as a display piece, but he's not a great toy. Nevertheless, the sculpt alone makes me want this figure, but I've never seen him for $15. If I found him, and possibly Juggernaut, in stores for that price I'd get both of them.
