Fantastic Four is one of my favorite comic series and the 2005 movie got me excited. Two character trumps the personal favorite and Thing takes the first place closely followed by Human Torch. Ever since I got the news about Marvel Legends Walgreens Exclusive “The Thing” I was blown out of the water! And I got lucky, picked one in Stamford Walgreens and here what I did with him this weekend.
This Walgreen Exclusive “The Thing” is an exceptional action figure that Hasbro has ever made under Marvel Legends branding and he even made it to my “Top 10 for Year 2018” so as many other Marvel Legends collector from all over the world. And I guess this action figure deserves an exceptional photoshoot session, which I finally did this weekend.
For a bulky character made of stone, he comes with articulation that would challenge many other Legends. I like this guy for his bulk and the extra weight and the extra pieces makes him far more sweeter.
I like this guy for his dynamic stunts in the movie and wanted to replicate few in with this action figure and he is an accommodating figure… most of his stunts include big jump and massive kicks and did a few to start. He is a perfectly balanced action figure and has no problem standing in one leg without any support! This gave me enough confidences to put him in my lobby 6 stories high… in one leg doing some crazy charging poses!
This guy comes with one extra head and two palms both open and fisted… I personally liked the face with open mouth because he looks angrier! I wanted to do some jump shot but because he is a bit heavy and my flight stand can’t put him in air so compromised and did this last shot which ultimately become my favorite. I will figure out some way to get him up maybe for next session so hold on… Till next time, Ciao.
