Hot Toys Unveils the New Predator 1 Figure and a Warning on Sideshow Giftcards!

December 29th, 2008

Hey everyone! A huge thanks and shout-out to Matt Skeins for the heads up he sent me while I was on vacation of the new photos released by Hot Toys of the HIGHLY anticipated Predator 1 figure in the 1:6 scale Masterpiece series that has become so popular!


From the new prototype photos, this looks totally awesome and the body seems a lot less skinny than it did for the Wolf series. The paint application looks awesome, but I felt that the P2 prototypes looked awesome but the production units were absolutely terrible, especially the heads. I guess we’ll see how this one goes but you can bet this will be a HUGE seller and we’ve been waiting for a couple of years for this P1 to come out. The figure will have a closed and open mouth pose by swapping out the jaw like on the P1 bust they recently released, as well has come with a removable helmet. The figure also includes a fully detailed medi-pack, that opens up to show all the tools! The detailing looks amazing! If the production pieces look as good as these pics, this will probably be the best Hot Toys Predator figure to date. Check out all the pics Matt sent me by clicking the gallery icon below:

Be sure to keep an eye on the site for when this is up for order in a few weeks and all newsletter subscribers will receive a “heads-up” notice when it’s up for pre-order on the Sideshow Site. It’s a safe bet these will sell out VERY fast, so grab one as quick as you can. These sell for a ton on the secondary market and the P1 is the most request Predator figure HT has ever had, so be ready! LOL!

WARNING FOR SIDESHOW GIFT CARDS!

Do you have a Sideshow Giftcard that you have not used yet? Well your card has a very good chance of expiring December 31st 2008, so you better use it now or kiss it goodbye! I had a $50 one from SDCC that I used to buy a kick ass book I wanted, which ended up being free with my card! Here’s what you need to do with your giftcard(s) if you have one:

Go to the main Giftcard Page on the sideshow site by clicking HERE.

From here you can check your code to see how much it’s worth, if it’s still valid, and when it expires. Then along the right side you can see the full list of all the items you can use your giftcard on, so it’s easy to see what qualifies and what doesn’t. Just be careful because I noticed a few items are actually sold out… I ended up buying a copy of the book “Sculpting a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars Model Shop” with my gift card that expires in a coupe of days.

So that’s it gang, be sure to use your giftcards if they are about to expire and a huge thanks again to Matt for sending me the heads up on the HT Predator 1 pics!

    WOW! SUPER COOL! Finally the ORIGINAL P1.
    I agree. I truly hope the production units are worthy of the prototypes. I couldnt help but notice “Billy” and “Dutch” in the photos. I hope Sideshow offers those guys as well?
    Thanks Dan for posting all the new stuff for next year!
    All the Best.

    This is so Awesome, the 3 figures are already available for preorder @ bigbadtoystore.com. I already submitted my order, I don’t want to loose out on this opportunity. I hope we get a Dillon figure and the rest of the rescue team.

    yup, it’s actually up for pre-order at bigbadtoystore and cornerstorecomics! and i’ve got my orders locked in, not quite sure why sideshow doesn’t have em up, i would prefer to buy from them but like steve said i am NOT missing the chance on these suckas! no way. weather or not the production figures are gonna look as good as the prototype i dunno, but i bet they’re gonna be awesome no matter what. i think the makers know what kind of responsibility they have to the fans on this, i dont care if it came as an unpainted kit! i’ll still be gettin one or two ( or three) this is gonna be one bad mo fo guys, be positive!
