We all love horror.
You must, else you wouldn't have clicked on this link.
There's even a good chance you have a collection of Horror POP! figures growing in your home. So, wouldn't you want to add another iconic movie to your growing display?
John Carpenter's The Thing is a treasure trove of creature designs, and we'd like to approach Funko with the idea to turn some of them into POP! vinyl figures. Among the suggested collection would be:
R. J. MacCready
Norris-Thing Head Spider
There is no doubt that The Thing has a fan base that would eat these vinyls up, and I'm certainly not the first to suggest a POP! line for John Carpenter's 1982 classic. In 2017, PopVinyls.com was vocal about the same topic and even shared many of the same ideas for possible entries into the collection.
Etsy is teaming with The Thing merchandise, there was the release of The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 board game, and there have even been custom R. J. MacCready vinyls floating about. As for horror POP! figures, there are dozens that have proven successful.
Clearly, there is a market for such a series, and I'd like to gather enough signatures to show Funko that its next hit horror series should be John Carpenter's The Thing.
We have banded together to request that Funko create a line of John Carpenter's The Thing POP! Vinyl figures.
