Lego may never get around to releasing Fantastic Four based Minifigures, but that doesn’t stop people from obtaining their own. With a recent appearance in the Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game there is some hope that these may one day be official. These four Minifigs are actually extremely well done “knock offs” by Sheng Yuan, and are sold individually. These Minifigures are a part of a greater Fantastic Four themed release, featuring Mr. Fantastic, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, The Thing, Flaming Human Torch, Pyro, Silver Surfer, and the great Dr. Doom. These are surprisingly detailed, with the Thing being the break out star of the bunch.

Originally, the Poison Pinto is a famous Hot Wheels based off of the 1979 Ford Pinto Van. It may also be known as The Thing. Lego builder Nathan Proudlove was recently challenged to rebuild this iconic car with Lego pieces. Mission accomplished. The Lego Poison Pinto features a spot-on lime green paint job, an exposed engine, custom decals, and redline tires. The end result is a very mean looking Pinto.
