Well.. I'm standing right next to Steve Wilkers who molds for ADI right now as he molds a creature suit for us. I've been to ADI and that isn't it. My Studio did the original maquettes for the prequel.. Then ADI got the job. I'm pretty sure you'll realize that the pics you posted aren't anywhere near studio quality.

Hmmm reading this response honestly sounds more snide the my earlier posts. Wasn't trying to offend bro.. But those pics are pretty bad

No worries dude.

You have much more insider info than I do, so I believe ya.

I thought they looked a bit "weak" myself, but looks like I got fooled. ;)

I don't think that's a dingy old basement, it looks to me like the backgrounds in those pics are scaled down sets to go with the sculpts.

Although I do believe George that these aren't the real things, I'm kinda bummed as I think they look really cool. They have a heavy Lovecraft and cthulu influence.

I was referring to the background in pic 6. The rest are diorama shots.

here are some of the silicone maquettes we did when we were up for it.

Now the biggest problem I have with the prequel is that it will be 90% CGI scans from ADI's maquettes ..in my opinion that is a Travesty. Carpenter's "The Thing" was a true testament to what can be achieved through practical effects ...and Rob Botin's creatures were un-paralleled

Too bad these are all maquettes of the original Thing movie. Seriously, there isn't a spider-head in The Thing Prequel. Still, fantastic work, though.
