I have the UK Arrow, UK Universal, and the US Scream editions. The Mondo steel came around and honestly it didn't really do much for me, so I passed. I understand I'm the minority opinion on that. I have seen a Mondo poster for The Thing that would have made a sensational steelbook, but alas it wasn't to be.
I'm assuming the more recent Europe edition is the one with the snowy blue background with Benning on his knees? I love the look of that, but think it has no inside art. Would love a steel for the prequel. Even tho the cgi wasn't up to the lofty standards of Rob Bottin's imagination, I loved the performances, characters and story.
As for this, I'm very interested in seeing what this place has to offer. May be time to mock up some more mini The Thing Lobby Cards for a new edition!!!! Unless they come packing their own, that is.
this is literally what I had in mind for the front. I was going to post that art yesterday but forgot.
It's a variant of the mondo used by Sacred Bones for the vinyl "Lost cues: The Thing"this is literally what I had in mind for the front. I was going to post that art yesterday but forgot.
Is the back a zoomed in version of the mondo art they used for the vinyl?
great mock up though. Would love it
I don't think I knew that was for the prequel. Isn't that Bennings on his knees in the snow from John Carpenter's version on the front of the steel? Really dont remember a scene like that from the prequel.
I think the one you describe is for the prequel? I saw that one at the cinema, there was only myself, my missus and only 1 other person in the whole screening and that was the week it opened! Clearly no one cared about it unfortunately. I thought it was ok, good concept and I loved how it linked straight into the 1982 movie but the CGI was truely disasterous and really did take away from the experience.
I hope this new steelbook is easy to order direct (fingers crosed other stores stock it too).
