I think that Macready is right to speculate that the Thing tried to catch Fuchs.. Some pic of the used prop allows to us to see that the clavicle began a bit to melt.. Thank to have put my blog among your links, I discovered your blog myself few time ago, I am very honoured and I added your among my own list of links. PS : I began a rather deep cover on The Thing this month after some wait because I had to do a tribute to Carlo Rambaldi this summer, the first part is online now( and I am finishing to clean my The Thing's translation into comics before to put it on internet too ). Nice to meet you!
