Carpenter directed The Thing from a screenplay by Bill Lancaster, which was based on John W. Campbell Jr.’s 1938 novella Who Goes There? (You can find out more about the adaptation HERE.) The film has the following synopsis: In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot and the camp doctor lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.
MacReady was played by Kurt Russell, who was joined in the cast by Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, Joel Polis, and Thomas G. Waites.
Mondo describes their MacReady figure: MacReady 1/6 scale figure is armed and ready to battle the ultimate in alien terror, complete with cloth and faux leather fabric elements, plus a slew of swappable hands, heads and weapons. The Timed Edition goes for the price of $265. There’s a limit of 3 figures per person, household, etc. Free shipping to the United States, Canada, UK, and the EU.
