Thing

This is the member of the Fantastic Four who would get the most figures. All of the figures are very well done and some are more detailed than others. His figures seemed to keep getting bigger as they went.

Thing


Marvel Super Heroes Series 3 - 1991



The first Thing figure is pretty well done. He is bulkier than most of the other figures and his rocky features do show pretty well. He can punch by twisting his waist, similar to many other Marvel figures. The punching action would return with Thing's second figure.

Figure ability: Pulverizing punch
Accessories: Yancy St. sign x2

Thing


Fantastic Four Series 1 - 1994


Marvel Universe '96 Series 1 - 1996



A large bulky Thing figure was released in this series. The figure features similar twisting waist and punching action that was present in many figures in the X-Men line. The figure was one of the more detailed figures released in this line, but was a little too brightly painted. I thought this figure should have been a bit taller.

Figure ability: Twist and punch action
Accessories: None

Thing is a smaller version of his 5 inch figure, though his legs look a little odd for some reason. He comes with Blaastar.

Thing II


Fantastic Four Series 3 - 1995


Marvel Universe '96 Series 10 - 1997



This is pretty much a Thing figure with a trench coat, sunglasses, and a hat. The figure is a bit cartoonier looking than the other Thing figures, but is still a good figure. The rocks on his skin aren't as rocky though.

Figure ability: Disguise
Accessories: Trenchcoat, Hat, Sunglasses

Thing


Fantastic Four Series 4 - 1996


Miscellaneous Series Marvel's Classic Super Heroes - 2003



This Thing figure is in his Fantastic Four outfit. The figure is more detailed than previous figures and is also a little bigger. This is probably the best Thing figure produced. The sculpt is pretty detailed as well. He comes on a base that when a button is pressed, it breaks apart.

Figure ability: Rock breaking platform
Accessories: Platform, Rocks x2

Thing


Marvel Legends Series 2 - 2002



The Thing is another big figure a lot like the Hulk. He comes with articulated fingers like the first version of the Hulk, which would later be replaced like Hulk's hands were with non bendable fingers. He's pretty articulated like most of the other figures. His skin is sculpted in a rocky way, though it seems a little too smooth to me. I liked the really rocky skin that they gave the first Thing figure from the Fantastic Four line. He also comes with a wall that he can knock down.

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: Yancy St. base wall chunks x4, Yancy St. base sides x2, Yancy St. base bottom

This Thing is the same as the first Fantastic Four figure he got, only this time hes a darker orange, which actually makes it look a little better than the bright orange.

1st Appearance Thing


Marvel Legends Legendary Riders (Series 11) - 2005



This Thing is modeled somewhat after the distinctive way Jack Kirby drew the Thing in early issues of the Fantastic Four. The figure also bears a strong likeness to the war Art Adams drew him, so the figure kind of works for both. He comes with the Airjet-Cycle he used in a few later issues of Fantastic Four and Marvel Two-In-One, though he didn't ride it in his first appearance..

Figure ability: Articulation
Accessories: None
