Scuba Predator Bio and Mike Loh’s The Prophecy of Cetanu Series!

May 31st, 2009

Good evening everyone, welcome to a very special post on the latest work of my good friend and fellow Predator nut Mike Loh, who’s passion for mask making and the Predator Genre shine through in his awesome creations, including the last mask we featured from him called The Bone Hunter. Mike has now released the storyboards and illustrations for his cool ‘The Prophecy of Cetanu – The Four Hunters of Armageddon’ and with the Bone Hunter done, the second helmet from his series is now available, the Scuba Predator Helmet!

From Chapter 3: Pestilence comes the character Kv’var-de Setg’in also known as Sea Hunter who specializes in hunting mighty beasts of the sea. Featured in this gorgeous new original prop from Mike Loh is the Sea Hunter’s underwater biohelmet, sculpted in amazing detail, cast and painted by Mike himself. The helmet itself measures 20″ from crown tip to chin and 12″ wide and weighs in at roughly 5 lbs. Each helmet is cast in very thick resin backed fiberglass for great strength and durability and can be used either as a display piece or for costumes… the helmet is already confirmed to fit perfectly on Wolf style undermasks available in the collector community. For those of you that are familiar with the helmet castings from RuffkinToys, these helmets are the same thickness!

The other nice thing with Mike Loh’s masks is that you don’t have to buy them painted… he actually offers them in two formats: Ready to display or ready to paint! And both INCLUDE the LEDs for the laser shroud!

Unpainted: The raw casting kit which includes a trimmed unpainted helmet, lenses and LEDs is $210.

Painted: Want to be able to display it right out of the box? Mike offers fully painted versions for $310, which can be either the default paint application seen in the photo above, or you can actually request a paint scheme or color scheme! The price also includes installed lenses and LEDs.

Please note that shipping for the raw or painted helmets is $60 for EMS Global (These ship direct from Mike’s studio in Shanghai).

For anyone looking to order this helmet and would like the pricing outlined above, please contact me to place an order!

The Prophecy of Cetanu – The Four Hunters of Armageddon

Mike Loh is one of those guys you love to hate, simply because he oozes so much talent in so many mediums… not only can the guy sculpt and paint, but then you find out he’s a super creative writer and just to really rub it in, he can draw like nobody’s business! And for this Predator project, he’s put all those skills to work by creating a very cool illustrated story together about each wearer of the helmets he’s creating and what they do. The Bone Hunter was only the first of four helmets, with the second one being the Scuba helmet, and currently on the work bench are the Ghoul Hunter and Dragon Hunter helmets. Each represents the four hunters of Armageddon – Death, Plague, Famine and War. On a personal note, I cannot WAIT to see how the Dragon Hunter turns out because the sketches alone were enough to give me a nerdgasm.

Hats off to Mike on this concept, I think he is putting in an AMAZING effort on this project, which he does simply as a hobby and for the fun of it… I don’t know Mike, you have a pretty sick sense of “fun”.

The story itself is made up of 5 2-page sections with some INSANE armor and weapon illustrations throw in for good measure, just for extra drooling purposes I suppose. I’ve taken the liberty of saving all the pages to the gallery, which you can find here, however they are not in the proper order. So if you want to read the entire thing in order, here’s the breakdown:

You smelling the awesome yet? Yeah, I thought so… Mike my friend, you’re sick. In a good way.

OK so who exactly is this Mike Loh fella? Glad you asked! If you’ve wiped the drool from your mouth and tears from your eyes, check this out… not only is Mike creative in pretty much every medium around (the man even plays instruments, is there no stopping him?!) but HE’S BEEN ON TV!! Yep, he’s even been featured on a national TV show in his country called Shanghai Quest!

They did a feature show on Mike and his mask making shot right from his home studio… in fact, those of you looking to get in to mask making and how to cast your work should definitely watch this! Click here to watch the show with Mike on Vimeo!

Just a huge round of applause to you Mike, you deserve all the praise and good fortune you can get… just stop rubbing my nose in all your talent, it’s starting to hurt. For those of you that would like to get in to collecting this amazing series of Predator helmets, please contact me through our contact form to order or ask about this mask! For those of you that would like to see more photos of this new piece, I haven’t been able to photograph it myself yet but Mike sent along a bunch of photos of the finished piece along with some nice work-in-progress photos.
