Recreating John Carpenter's "The Thing" in minifig scale

catwranglercatwrangler Northern IrelandMember Posts: 1,890
Some friends just opened the big Arctic base set from 2014, and naturally they want to figure out how to render The Thing in Lego. I Googled thinking this would be easy and there'd be lots of examples, but all I can find is a very low res (because it's from 2006) video on YouTube, a custom minfig of Kurt Russell's character, and versions of The Thing done with Bionicle parts. 

Given the increasing number and variety of non-human minifig parts that have been released in the last few years, and people's creativity in turning non-minifig parts into monster/creature appendages, does anyone have any suggestions, or examples of Things you've made?
