We Talk to Tom Woodruff, Dan gets an AVPR Gift from Kre8-FX and HUGE Shop Update!

January 15th, 2008

Hey gang! Hope everyone is very well and that cabin fever isn’t hitting those of you piled up with snow too hard. Tonight I have a VERY exciting update for you guys and gals, and I am really quite honored to have had a chance to ask Tom Woodruff a couple of questions that you guys have been asking me. What exactly happened to the props that were used in AvP and AvP-R? Here’s the scoop from the man himself…

PStuff: What happens with the props and costumes after filming? Are they destroyed or distributed to the actors and crew or does ADI simply store them?

Tom: Some of them actually get destroyed (or badly damaged) during the shoot. Anything that survives the production is returned to us and stored. Occasionally we’ll get the chance to re-use certain pieces like some of the Alien suits from the first AVP for AVP-R, with new heads of course. With the Alien body count as high as it has become, it’s useful to have a low-cost solution to providing fodder for Predators!

PStuff: Are there any channels that collectors can go through to acquire original movie props used by ADI?

Tom: Unfortunately the studio is not keen to part with actual effects pieces, especially when it can serve their needs for a future installment. At this point we have no idea if there will be another AVP, but they will want to keep their options open by keeping close rein on the stock.

PStuff: ADI works with companies like Sideshow to produce reproductions of props used in movies, such as the AvP Shuriken, the Wolf’s bio helmet and the Wolf’s Cannon (In fact, I have all of these on pre-order as I type this!). How can the average collector express his or her wishes for additional items? As an avid collector and someone that is greatly involved in the community, I know for a fact that fans have been waiting for an AvP spear since the first AvP was released. Is there a way to convey this desire and have it considered for production?

Tom: We can definitely pass along what we hear from the fans. It might also serve to address Sideshow Collectibles directly online with interests in possible products.

So there you have it guys… now you know what happens to the props that we’d all trade our souls to own! I would like to say a huge thanks to Tom Woodruff who took the time out of his crazy schedule to answer my questions and I suggest you guys keep your eyes open to win a special gift from the folks at ADI next month.

A SURPRISE GIFT FROM KRE8-FX

I am absolutely stunned at a gift that has recently shown up at my house, sent to me from Pete at Kre8-FX. For the last 2 months, Pete has secretly been working on a full size Wolf bust for me as a thank you for helping out with the costume sales and helping get Kre8-FX on it’s feet. I am truly shocked by this piece, it’s HUGE, insanely kick-ass, and I am very humbled by Pete taking the time to make this for me.

This is a full 1:1 scale bust, cast in latex and foam filled with a wicked paint-up, Bambooie dreads and a gorgeous custom stand with a movie plaque and the Kre8-FX logo. The sculpt is massive, and overall this piece is bigger than the Sideshow Predator 1 bust, it’s amazing! For those of you already drooling and wondering how to get one of these for yourself, we don’t have any plans on selling built up pieces like this (Hey! It’s MINE and no, you can’t have it!) but we may sell a couple of extra pulls in the shop. If we do offer it, I’ll post a shop update announcement so you’ll know it’s available.

So again, thank you so much Pete, I’m just floored with this thing. Be sure to check out all the photos I took of this beast (It didn’t even fit in my photo tent, I had to improvise) by clicking the photo icon below… Oh, and there’s a few pics of Pete working on it as well!
