Neca Releases New Photos of the Series 15 AvP Predator Action Figures!

April 22nd, 2016

We’ve got some exciting news coming from Neca this week – they’ve posted all new photos of their upcoming Series 15 Predators, which are the Warrior, Temple Guard and Scar preds from AvP!  They look awesome!

necapreds_s1501

Some Neca trivia for you… did you know that Neca’s oldest action figure series is Predator?  Neca is a MASSIVE company with hundreds of collectible figures, but it all started with the baddest hunter in the galaxy and I am really stoked to see them bringing on some new AvP Preds.  I know people love to crap all over the 2004 movie, but the collectibles are still must-buys for collectors.

Each figure has over 30 points of articulation and comes with film accurate armor, weapons, bio-helmets etc and what’s REALLY cool is that all the hands,, blades and cannons are removable and fully compatible with older AvP releases from Neca.  These are all in the usual 7″ Scale and each figure stands at around 8.25″ tall and are set to ship in May 2016!

Here’s a few more sexy pics from the Neca site:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – The Movie Tanks but the Collectibles are AWESOME!

March 27th, 2016

I am REALLY sad that the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is absolutely getting torn a new one by critiques all over the world and is currently hovering at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes as I write this.  I was SO excite for this movie, but equally disappointing when I learned it would be directed by Zach Snyder, whom I still haven’t forgiven for the mess he made of the Watchmen movie.  Unfortunately the fears of many were realized as movie pundits started destroying this movie last Thursday.  The concept, the costumes and the controversy were so exciting and I couldn’t wait to see this unfold on the big-screen, but alas, I’ll be waiting for the torrent *ahem* Blu-ray to be available.  Such a shame, especially after finally recovering from the pain around my ribs from laughing my arse off while watching the awesome Deadpool flic.

Luckily, we’ve got Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys and Prime 1 Studios absolutely KILLING it on the collectibles for this movie, and the statues are nothing short of stunning.  I’m not going to list everything that you can find, but I wanted to show off some of my favorite pieces so far, starting with my favorite of the bunch, Sideshow’s Armored Batman Premium Format statue:

dc-comics-batman-v-superman-armored-batman-premium-format-300401-01

This thing is completely off the chain and the photos look so damn good!  The piece is designed by artists Rachel Roubicek and Zane Yarbrough and sculpting and casting is handled by the very competent folks over at Ironhead Studio and they put together the beautiful master build for the prototype.  This is really by far my favorite piece from the movie that I’ve seen so far, the sculpt and pose is amazing and the overall size makes this statue a giant Premium Format statue at almost 2 feet high.  And the best part?  Yeah that’s right… the light up eyes!

Check out the Sideshow Collectibles website for more photos or to place your order!

As most of my friends know, I am a huge Superman buff, so I’m a bit ashamed that I didn’t lead off with ol’ Supes, but I really dig the Batman armor suit so much, even though Superman would still kick the living snot out of Batman on any given day with his hands tied.  So let’s follow-up with a Superman piece, and I am BLOWN-AWAY by this sheer size and beauty of this piece, the Superman Polystone Statue by Prime 1 Studios:

dc-comics-batman-v-superman-superman-half-scale-polystone-statue-prime-1-902664-04

For the love of everything holy, GOOD LAWRD that likeness is bang on to Henry Cavil and the paint application is just insane, look at the quality of the skin tones from the translucent resin they used, wow!  It would appear that since I was away from the collecting scene, there’s a new company in town putting out some AMAZING pieces, and that is Prime 1 Studios.  I noticed them last year with some new pieces and believe me, my credit card was itching BADLY!  The detail and paint on this statue is insane, and the best part?  HALF SCALE!  Yep, this badboy is 3 and a half feet tall, standing at 41″.  Some other cool tidbits on this piece are the complete fabric costume (This is like a Premium Format statue on steroids), you can swap out between 2 different emblems on the base plus the base has LED lights on it for the display.  If you have the budget this gorgeous statue commands, it’s worth every penny!

Check out the Sideshow site for a TON of photos and if you want to pre-order Superman!

And finally, the Hot Toys Superman is a MUST, I have mine on order already and will be proudly displaying this guy at work in my office, which is slowly starting to look like a collection and I’m expecting a visit from HR in a month or two.  Look at this guy:

dc-superman-sixth-scale-batman-v-superman-hot-toys-902608-09

Don’t have the Prime 1 Studios kind of budget?  Here’s the next best thing because he too has the full fabric suit AND a bang on likeness on the Henry Cavill head-sculpt AND he’s fully pose-able so you can pose Superman in to whatever ass-kicking position you want!  He comes with the usual awesome features all Hot Toys sets come with such as extra hands AND the exclusive version of the figure includes a light up rock of Kryptonite just in case Supes starts getting out of line and makes moves on your girl or attempts to pilfer your fridge.

Check out all the pics and/or place a Pre-Order with Sideshow Collectibles by clicking here!

So those are my favorites I’ve seen so far, what about you?  Please leave a comment below and tell me which collectibles you love and what you thought about the film if you’ve already seen it – just keep a lid on the spoilers.

Happy Easter everyone!

Predator Reference Guide Images Fixed, Shop Cleaned up and Social Media Updates!

March 15th, 2016

Hello everyone!

The clean-up of the site has been going strong and I’m happy to report I’ve made quite a bit of progress.  The first big issue was that NONE of the images on the Reference Guide were working anymore, so anything you would click on was broken.  I added a sexy new lightbox script and went in and fixed every single URL to the images (about a thousand of them) and it took about a week!  So check out the guide, everything is working now.

I also tidied up the shop and removed everything that was outdated, no longer available or broken.  There was 15 pages of items, it’s now down to 4 and may go down further.  So please shop with confidence, everything on there is available.

And finally, I’ve restarted the social media channels for Predatorstuff so please be sure to like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and Instagram and be sure to share and like our content and get the word out that we’re back in business!

I am currently talking to Narin and some other kit vendor and will be re-adding their items to the shop and I actually have some inventory coming in as well for you guys to check out.  Hang in there and I will announce some new goodies very soon!

Thanks so much for being patient while I fix things up, all the best.

Hot Toys AvP Predator Elder on Pre-Order at Sideshow and Other Goodies!

March 6th, 2016

Not sure if you guys noticed, but Sideshow collectibles has the Hot Toys Elder Predator figure on Pre-Order and it’s still available!  Last time I was actively selling these figures, they were selling for a DOUBLE what Sideshow has this at, so if you’ve always wanted to grab one of these, you might want to get your tail over to Sideshow and order one right away.  These figures are CRAZY detailed, I used to own the entire set and loved them!  These second gen ones looks awesome.

I’ve actually reviewed a couple of these figures before… I hated assembling them but they were killer when they were done.  You can check out my Predator 2 Elder review here and my Predator 2 figure review here.  Bear in mind these are some really old reviews, Hot Toys has really refined their manufacturing and these figures are better than ever now!

Sideshow also has a few other Predator goodies that are still in stock but VERY limited items left.  They have the Predator 2 full-size mask available, the Pyramid Guard Predator Mask, the Square Enix Predator figure and it looks like Sideshow is still taking Waitlist reservations for the Predator 1 Mask. If you missed out on the P1 helmet, throw your name on the list, you have nothing to lose and you never know, they might have some extras become available.

That’s about it from me for today, I’ve been working really hard at fixing up broken links and other areas of the site.  The lightbox galleries on sale items in the shop now works again properly with functioning fullscreen display (before it would load images too large), the lightbox on the news is fixed and I am slowly fixing all the images in the Predator Collectibles Index that are all busted and I added a lightbox to that as well.  I’ve updated the entire framework and fixed or suppressed weird errors and have been fixing up some broken links and such.  I see a ton of links and external sites no longer work so all that will be fixed as well.

I also tried sending a newsletter and only 75 went out before I realized an issue with the script.  I’ll need to fix that before I can resend.  FUN STUFF!

Hope you all have a great evening… back to work tomorrow.

I’m BACK! Dan Returns to Predatorstuff and Massive Updates Coming Soon!

March 3rd, 2016

Hello everyone!

It has been a LONG time since I even looked at a collectible, so you can imagine my shock when the previous owner of Predatorstuff.com and my old friend Rich approached me pretty much out of the blue asking if I would like to take back the site.  I was caught completely by surprise but there was no way I would let the site be shut down so I gladly accepted.  It would appear I’m back!

arnie

How the hell are you guys?!  I hope everyone has been well over the last few years, your families are well and your collections are growing.  I see there’s been some beautiful new Predator pieces released in the last 5 or 6 years and we’ve got some new high end collectible companies making new goodies.  The high end market seems to be growing, I’m seeing $1000+ pieces on a regular basis now, they’re stunning, but damn, those price tags are pretty beefy.

Rich did his best to keep the site going with what little time he had, so a big thank you for all his work he was able to put in when he could.  The infrastructure of the site itself hasn’t been touched very much since I last saw it so there is a LOT of work to be done.  I upgraded the entire framework of the articles/wordpress system and it pretty much broke everything.  I’ve been working with a friend for about 2 weeks now trying to get the code updated for the shop and the Predator index of collectibles and it’s finally functional again.  There is a massive clean-up required in the shop, it’s full of old items that are no longer available, sold etc or the items don’t even load.  Please bear with me while I clean it up and add new items that are current products and pre-orders.  Remember, if you order Sideshow products, please do it through our shop links to support the site!

I am also looking to update the design of the site with a new header menu with WAY less clutter, a two column layout instead of 3, and bigger visual elements.  The structure overall will stay along with the colors and such, I just want to give the ol’ girl a facelift.

The Predator Collectibles Index is working, but it’s full of broken photo links and it’s missing any Predator items released in the last 5 or 6 years, so those will need to be researched and added.  If you want to give me a heads up on new items that have been issued by any companies or hobbyists, please leave me a comment with some details and I will add it ASAP.

The newsletter system also appears to have been beaten up by spammers, there was 55,000 emails in it!  I ran some filtering on the list and managed to prune off 50,000 bogus emails so hopefully that list is now pretty clean.  I will definitely be going back to providing product updates and important bulletins when rare collectibles or a costume become available like I used to.

The final challenge will be re-establishing all my contacts with old friends, suppliers and fellow Predator and Alien fanatics that enjoyed this site and it’s services and content.  I’ve already been in touch with some of my close friends that still work in the prop and kit community to let them know Predatorstuff.com is being rejuvinated and open to new opportunities.  I am also looking for content writers that would like to write reviews for the site or other editorial content, I am open to all kinds of content and would love to hear from you.  Leave me a comment or contact me through the contact page.

I am REALLY excited to be back working on the site.  I’ve created all kinds of web projects and some of them pretty big, but this little site will always be my favorite… my baby.

See you all very soon, please post a comment even if it’s just to say hi or report something that’s broken.  All the best!
Dan
