SNAKE Index 2008 Released – Spike Narin Kit Encyclopedia v2

December 29th, 2008

Happy Holidays Everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all the very best in the coming year and that we get another year filled with Predator goodies! I am finally back today after almost a week away from the computer jumping around from city to city and family to family trying to pack on as much poundage as possible, but all the fun has come to and end and it’s time to face the HUGE pile of emails I have in my inbox. Please be patient while I try to catch up, and shipments will also start going out tomorrow as I resume packing tonight.

Along with my re-appearance, my dear friend Ian decided to surprise me by FINALLY send an update to his infamous SNAKE Guide, which stands for Spike NArin Kit Encyclopedia. This is the second edition that Ian has put together (Ian’s nickname is Spike by the way) and it includes all the new Predator kits Narin has released in 2007 and 2008.

The SNAKE Index is a numbered list of all the Predator kits Narin has released over the years, and provides a simple way of communicating the kit you are talking about… so instead of saying “Female Huntress 2 with the spear and weird base etc.”, you can just say Narin kit #34 and a quick check on the index shows which kit you are talking about. I actually use this guide all the time when making orders or talking about Narin kits with other fans, it’s just easier than trying to remember the names for all of them lol! Here is what Ian had to say about this updated version:

Well it’s been 22 months since my last attempt at building the ultimate Pred collage ….. and I’ve finally found some more electronic glue and paper.

Most everybody interested in reading this will already be familiar with the sculpts Narin has worked on since Feb 2007, since between Narin’s own site, Predatorstuff, and the HIVE/Clubhouse/Lair (etc) communities, these beauties have been publicised as they became available.

However, it never hurts to make things easy with a consolidated reference guide – so here we are. The ones added (yellow numbering) are as follows:

2007 (March-Dec only)
44 – Predator 2 (masked & unmasked options)
45 – Urban warrior (huge scale P2 with damaged mask – same size as Sideshow maquette)
46 – Deadly Duo Celtic
47 – Deadly Duo Chopper
48 – Lobster Pred bust (never kitted)

2008
49 – Death Warrior (Narin series 03) – the ultimate Pred kit
50 – Predalien
51 – Wolf
52 – Predator tile (limited distribution, painted by Narin)
53 – Rogue Hunter
54 – Bug Killer (masked & unmasked options)
55 – Dual-axe Pred
56 – Wolf bust (masked & unmasked options)
57 – Predalien bust

These last 2 years have seen us spoiled with yet further awesome creations from Narin, a man who’s prolific talent is unsurpassed by any in our community. I look forward to the coming months as he will doubtless take yet more money from me in return for his wonderful works of art.

I will remain ever hopeful that he continues to do so for a long LONG time. Narin – you STILL rule my friend.

Thanks so much for the update Ian! For those of you that would like to see the full size version of the SNAKE Index, please click HERE! You can also bookmark that image link, it’s handy to have at the ready… I actually have it right on my links bar in my browser.

Have a good one everybody, I have more updates coming soon, including a very cool AVPR Cannon replica Pete just sent me!
