WHO GOES THERE?! Another alien, "The Assimilator" from Antediluvian Miniatures. This sculpt is based on the THING from "Who Goes There?" as interpreted by an Classics Illustrated cover artist. The illustration (pretty true to the original text!): The mini: The sculpt alone is delightful, but the opportunities for paranoia in your space opera or horror game are just too good to pass up! Crash-landing in Antarctica: "well this sucks." An encounter with the locals (featuring a Grenadier Elder Thing by way of Mirliton): "You must be new here." Guest appearance from Antarctic Explorer, 80072. (on left. OR IS HE?!) Side note: It is left unclear in the Campbell story whether the form of this thing ever belonged to aliens that were not THE THING, but if there were non-THING aliens with this body plan I'd guess they were related to Rhan-Tegoth from "The Horror in the Museum." Another polar three-eyed monstrosity with writhing tendrils all about it, with mental powers and an appetite for dogs and men? And published five years before "Who Goes There?" Probably an influence at least. Perhaps THE THING is an assimilator on the meta-textual level too!
