Edit: after a meticulous comparison of your list below, and mine here, they're the same. Nice! So for any users who find this thread, both this list and the one in the subsequent post are complete, just shown in a different order

So Artscow was running a free-shipping sale on their cards, and I bought The Thing, plus The Things 5-6 player expansion. I’ve read the rules, and gone over the cards, but a few looked really funny. I sat down and checked my cards against the card checklist available here on the ‘geek (dec ‘11) and they don’t quite match up (or I had a bit of trouble matching stuff up!).

Could someone who knows the game well take a gander at my card list here, and just make sure I’ve got a complete deck, or let me know which ones are screwed up? Since I should get back to Artscow sooner rather than later with any necessary corrections, I’d appreciate y’alls help!

My order (base game + expansion) came with a total of 216 cards:

53x Deck 1 (humans, with the portrait of the crew around the helecopter)
2 x Ithaca 37 Shotgun
1 x Gasoline
4 x M2A1-7 Flamethrower
1 x Morphine injection
1 x Heckler & Koch 93-A2 (Norwegian's rifle)
2 x Colt Trooper Mk III (Garry's popgun)
2 x Play immediately The El Capitan player must choose, without conferring, to either...
1 x You are a Thing! You are now a thing. Do not tell anyone...
4 x You are under suspicion. Keep this card in your hand...
1 x If you're all these things then you just attack me right now. So some of you are still human.
1 x Clark - did you notice anything strange about the dog, anything at all?

1 x How much more of this crap is there?
1 x I haven't been able to get hold of jack-shit for two weeks
1 x Maybe we're at war with Norway...

1 x I know how this one ends
1 x I was wonderin' when El Capitan was gonna get a chance to use his popgun
1 x Maybe they found a fossil, the remains of some animal buried in the ice, and they chopped it up
1 x This thing doesn 't want to show itself, it wants to hide inside an imitation
1 x It's alright by me, doc - I'm just letting you know we're... we're taking a chance
1 x Well what we've got here, is what appears to be anyway, a normal set of internal organs
1 x So how's this motherfucker wake up after thousands of years in the ice?

2 x Ithaca 37 Shotgun
1 x Dynamite
2 x M2A1-7 Flamethrower
2 x Smith & Wesson 38 special (Blair's revolver)
2 x Play immediately The El Capitan player must choose, without conferring, to either...
1 x Play immediately The El Capitan player must choose & remove...
1 x We'd better start closing off the outside doors
1 x And I suggest that we only eat out of cans
1 x Macready, I know Bennings, I've known him for 10 years. He's my friend.

Going over my deck ordered from Printer Studio a while back, I see there are a few image transpositions. I assume as long as the numbers match, pictures are just chrome? E.G. Instead of a separate Detonator and Blair Thing Dog Burster, there are two additional Fingers in Flesh cards - all of which have the same effect (cancel 2 success)?

The only significant omissions in my deck requiring replacement seem to be the switching of deck numbers on the Ah Just Four Stitches and Cassette Deck cards, and being short one Infection card.
