The Thing is one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Universe, and the Fantastic Four strongman’s big-screen debut in 2005 (we’ll ignore that bizarre low-budget 1990s version) marked the beginning of a new era of superhero special effects. VIP Fan Auctions is now giving one hard-core Fantastic Four fan an opportunity to literally own a piece of the rock by offering a production made prosthetic cowl and headpiece of the Thing/Ben Grimm. This distinctive piece of visual effects history is available to the FIRST fan who claims it for $925 at VIP’s Entertainment Memorabilia Auction Encore. Click here for photos and more information. Visit the site for additional “buy it now” prosthetics, props and wardrobe pieces from hit films and TV series! These sales end soon.
