When terrorist organization A.I.M tries to steal the formula, Dr. Sallis destroys it and injects himself with the only samples. Tragically, he crashes his car into the swamp while attempting to escape. Left for dead. A combination of science and magic saves him, but he emerges from the bog forever changes into the monstrous MAN-THING!
This new 1:8th scale statue is inspired by artist Mike Ploog and his classic comic book cover from The Man-Thing #5 “Night of the Laughing Dead” as well as the vintage Power Records book and record set adapting the same story. The limited edition Man-Thing Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios and every one comes hand numbered with a certificate of authenticity. Whomever knows fear BURNS at the touch of the MAN-THING!
