Second Chance for Narin Hellboy

August 25th, 2011

Ever since I started collecting statues and building/painting models I have been in awe of Randy Bowen and Narin.  Both artists have shown an amazing talent and ability to interpret complex characters, develop new characters from existing ones and just design/sculpt incredible figures from scratch.  One of the highlights in my experience since assuming responsibility for Predator Stuff has been establishing a relationship (well via email but still a relationship) with Narin.  I have to admit that the first email I sent him was full of gushing praise and sounded a bit like a tween girl writing to Justin Bieber.  But once we got past all that I have thoroughly enjoyed discussing collections, statues and models.  So, I figured that it was time to lean on him a bit and ask him to crank out a few of his pieces that, well quite frankly, I missed out on.  Being the gentleman he is, he agreed!  So it is with great pleasure that I announce the return of:

The Narin 1:4 Scale Hellboy

This was the first in a planned series of large scale kits to be produced by Narin and this bad boy is big.  He stands 21″ in height and weighs in at over 5 pounds AND HE’S BACK!!  This phenomenal kit comes in 25 pieces and includes two sets of horns, the full large set and the ground down ‘stubs’ you see in the movies.  For a full review of this model, scroll on down in this column and take a gander at Dans review from March of this year.  Keep in mind that the review model was extensively customized and shows what can be done with this amazing kit.  Here are some photos of the actual kit:

The true measure of a figure artist is their ability to sculpt anatomically correct musculature without looking cartoonish.  Narin is the master!

This is going to be a very short run – the original production run was only 33 and it sold out almost immediately.  If you are interested in getting your hands on one of these masterpieces, please contact me ASAP.

Product Size: 21″ H (533mm)
Product Weight: 5.00 lbs (2.26 kg)

The Narin Alternative Hunter

Also available on a very limited basis is the Alternative Hunter.  This is a truly delicious kit with some of the most outstanding (even for Narin) details ever sculpted.  This is a 1:6 scale kit depicting a fully armored young wolf.  Check out the helmet attached to the shoulder and the cannon poised for attack.

 

This is a truly amazing piece and should hold a place of honor in your collection.  Don’t have the time or inclination to build the Hunter or paint him?  Don’t worry, we have a whole group of talented folks that we can refer you to who will do a most excellent job.  For more info on paint and build-up or if you are interested in ordering this true classic, contact me.

Product Size: 15″ H (381mm)
Product Weight: 3.00 lbs (1.4 kg)

I know that these two re-issues are going to be huge and will (I hope) serve to convince Narin to come up with some more of his long sold out kits.  Now if I could just convince him to crank out another classic predator for me…..

    It’s funny how much the concept of the hunters/”predators” has affected my life, in mostly a philosophical manor. I only wish that the later created ideas were part of the original creators plans, or were they?

    Regardless if they’re together(minus the human drama forced to be the front page topic) or not…which I guess has to have human bs in it…but “aliens” and “predators” are few of the many ideas, that can actually make a dent in the perceptions of reality, by even the dullest of “technologically” infringed minds.

    So if someone wants to do an “Aliens vs Predator!S!” Come find me…

    -Kyle (all you get until i figure out you’re worth more than a saturated slug, not in any phylum..so if you don’t understand, that’s probably a good thing)
