Predastore Introduces the First Statue in the Until Death Diorama – The Assault Hunter!

December 9th, 2010

Good afternoon everyone, hope everyone has been well and have been out getting an early start on your Christmas shopping!  I of course have done no such thing and plan to wait until the very last minute so I can go absolutely mental in the mall on the 24th in a blizzard.  That’s how I roll…  OK enough of me, lets talk about Predator kits and one hell of a badass project coming from Predastore called the Until Death Diorama.  The Dio will be a series of 4 statues, each with a base and divinity totem that will all interlock together to form a single diorama.  Today we’ll get out first look at the first statue in the series and talk about what to expect later down the road… so without further ado, check out the Assault Hunter!

The Assault Hunter (as well as all the other kits in this diorama series) is sculpted in a large 1:5 scale format by the artist known simply as Sky, who has really started to make a name for himself over the last couple of years with several very cool Predator and Alien sculpts release through Nightmare Collectibles.  This particular piece features a nasty looking cyborg style Predator hauling some serious weaponry, curved wrist blades and some beautifully detailed armor.  The backpack and dual cannon rig is insane and I love the heavy arm gauntlets.  Top it off with a terminator style cyborg eye and you have one seriously pissed off looking Predator ready to take down just about anything unfortunate enough to get in his way.

The base is part of the interlocking series that will fit together with the other diorama pieces, and features a Kapatek Kalowac idol.  The kit is cast in solid high quality resin, including a new special soft style resin for the dreads, allowing them to bend and be shaped without snapping.

The additional kits in this dio are also already planned out and in production.. here’s an approximate schedule of when to expect the other releases:

1. Assault Hunter and Kapatek Kalowac idol sculpted by Sky – Available Now!

2. Spitter-Hunter and Rataka idol sculpted by Sky – Coming Soon!

3. Last kiss good-bye and Pakawana idol sculpted by Narin – Coming in 2011

4. Tromblon-Hunter – Coming summer 2011

The Assault Hunter is ready to ship now and retails for $239.99 plus shipping from the producer.  To give you an idea of the freight costs, shipping to the USA or Canada runs $38 and shipping to Europe is $45.  Please contact us should you need additional shipping information or have any questions about this kit!

Looks like another amazing release from Predastore, I can’t wait to see the rest of the series!  Check out more photos of Joe Dunaway’s build-up of this piece by clicking on the photo icon below:

I should also mention that very soon Predastore will have their very own shop online, looking forward to checking that out!  I’ll update you guys when I hear the site is up and running live for the world to see.  Congrats to Predastore on another badass release, I honestly can’t wait to see how the entire diorama looks once it’s done.  What do you guys think?  Post your thoughts by clicking the comment button below.

Enjoy!

    Dan, where do I order this one?

  2. Jason Says:

    I’m sorry but I really dislike this one. The oversized blade, the velociraptor feet, and goofy pose make this undesireable for me…

  3. Faken Says:

    Hai – Anyone can contact me directly for additional information on this kit 🙂 The contact page is http://www.predatorstuff.com/contact-me/

  4. THE ATOMICPUNK Says:

    I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE WITH JASON.THE KIT LOOKS TO GOOFY AND WHATS UP WITH THE FEET!?THE WEAPONS DO NOT LOOK PRED.LIKE AT ALL!I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED A BETTER AND MORE AWESOME LOOKING PREDATOR FROM THIS ARTIST.JUST DOES’NT FIT THE PREDATOR MOLD!THIS KIT IS THE 1ST OF 4.JUST HOPE THE OTHERS ARE MUCH BETTER!!SORRY JUST NOT FOR ME!

  5. Predian Says:

    Looks original to me and there are lots of unoriginal Predator kits already. As I was ready the announcement I was hoping it would be a series that fitted together as that is a great idea, good that a reliable set of artists and producers are involved so that the line doesn’t prematurely stop after the third one. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

  6. John Hircock Says:

    A bit quirky looking. I appreciate the effort of all involved however i personally would pass this up in favour of a Narin sculpt. However, i’m sure many people would buy it.

  7. Fat'O Wong Says:

    I am agree with John Hircock. Actually, Narin is a world top sculptor, this artist would be there.Great sculpt, great idea, looking forward to seeing finally ‘Until Death Diorama’.

  8. Heavy Metal Spike Says:

    Sky is a talented sculptor but this isn’t for me.

    It’s a little too “out there”, and I’m well past the point of buying kits just because they are Predator based.

    Looking forward to seeing the other 3 sculpts though.

    Joe did a great job (as always) on the buildup and photography, and I hope it sells well.

  9. nino (a.k.a)warhammer Says:

    Hi,wow nice sculpt I wish i can have one.hehe.But me ive done my very 1st sculpture of a predator head since im a fun of predator .Its a life size predator head,I wanted to post it but I dont know how.its just an easy steps in how to make one .as long as you have all materials. so far im looking forward to see more scults.good job more power.

  10. Sarah Says:

    Leaves much to be desired, though I am very glad that someone attempted a pred in motion, rather than standing or posing.

    The cannons are nice and the torso is very well sculpted (nice musculature), but Christ, the equipment is odd-looking, as well as those…feet.

    Looking forward to the rest of the “Until Death” statues.

  11. Sarah Says:

    Oh, and great job to Sky! The predator is a very difficult creature to sculpt…so many details…

  12. Ray Says:

    This is horrible. Looks like a retarded predator. This is just wrong. Not talking about the quality of the sculpt though.

  13. Fat'O Wong Says:

    What is the meaning of ‘RETARDED PREDATOR’?

  14. Ray Says:

    That it looks like a retard. Looks nothing like a predator at all.
