I got some paint on the Thing which is another Bowen bust converted by Nimajneb. I really like this one!

If this had been produced as a FS instead of a MB, then it might be the best. It reminds me of Jack Kirby's artwork. That said, I prefer the Hard Hero Thing (standard version; not the variant). It completely captures the look of Kirby's successor on the F.F. ; John Buscema. The Hard Hero one reminds me of the F.F. stories of my youth. The Bowen piece is more akin to the John Byrne look the character had in the 80's. I like it as well. The Thing is my second favorite comic book character of all-time. I really love the character and have for most of my life. The other statues made attempting to depict the Thing all fall short. The one based on the "This man, this monster" cover looks nothing like the Kirby art. The others aren't even worth talking about.

Here are a couple of lesser seen Thing statues. The scale on these are small similar to the Bowen mini statues.

i normally like bowen pieces hands down but the sideshow thing was my first pf and i love it. i also like the thor pf but im not sure if its better than the classic thor. i think ss thor is more impressive due to the size but the classic thor is the best representation of the character. sorry for going off topic

BOWEN. The 1st FS I bought that I just had to have. I can't stand the look of the others.

The Bowen is the Best out there. The others not so much. The one with him looking at his hands looks good but very unproportioned, 'coz he is so short legged that when he's arms are down they will touch the ground!!! lol!!! The Thing although covered in rocks is human not an ape with rocks.

I haven't seen one Thing statue worth buying yet...I hate the classic Thing. Randy's latest Thing is cool, but not what I would pay big money for. That other Bowen Thing that got canceled (with cigar in hand) would have had my vote. The one that Uncle Creepy posted is cool, but I'd like one more detailed and with muscle definition.

I think I'm just a little too picky when it comes to him.

Thanks for the great pics Al...
