Who is a fellow fan of The Thing? I thought it would be fun to create a fan fiction crossover. So I'm currently writing Predator Vs The Thing.
On a remote base on a frozen moon, a group of scientists and a squad of Colonial Marines find themselves under siege from a Predator hunting pack. But is the threat from the hunters or is the real threat hidden among them.
Here is a custom figure I have created of one of the Things in that story - using a Left 4 Dead Smoker figure as the base with added parts from a Trilobite, an eyestalk from a broken McFarlaine Noris Head-Thing (the spider legs had snapped off before the pack was opened), along with spare parts from my Warhammer 40K Tyranids.
The first image is the revelation of a Thing, the second image is when it sprouts tendrils and tongues to attack, third image it sprouts a long neck to attempt an escape, fourth image closeup of the head (on the end of the neck) attempting to latch on to an escape.
