The Thing collectible one-off coffee table

As seen in:

Director: John Carpenter

John Carpenter has said that of all his films, The Thing is his personal favourite. Another big fan has spent copious hours recreating the Antarctic saucer crash site from the film as a diamorma-cum-coffee-table in honour of the cult classic’s 40th Anniversary – a real collectors piece which is now available for sale.

The focus of this one-of-a-kind diorama is the ‘Saucer Crash Site’ where Mac, Norris and Palmer discover the crater and empty ice hole where The Thing froze.

Standing some 81cm long and 50cm wide this unique yet functional piece of furniture dedicated to the The Thing holds your coffee cups and is even illuminated.

The Thing coffee table is modelled on the black oil drums in the film but is made from Flexi-Ply to save weight. On top sits 6mm toughened UV protected glass and on the bottom four legs with adjustable feet.
The pull out drawer holds five coasters made from acrylic & resin that resemble the petri dishes of the famous ‘Blood Test’ scene.
A 12v DC plug powers the internal LED’s that illuminates the scene and the Title letters blue at the touch of a white LED button.
A plaque commemorating the 40th Anniversary of The Thing completes this piece.
