I’m BACK! Dan Returns to Predatorstuff and Massive Updates Coming Soon!

March 3rd, 2016

Hello everyone!

It has been a LONG time since I even looked at a collectible, so you can imagine my shock when the previous owner of Predatorstuff.com and my old friend Rich approached me pretty much out of the blue asking if I would like to take back the site.  I was caught completely by surprise but there was no way I would let the site be shut down so I gladly accepted.  It would appear I’m back!

How the hell are you guys?!  I hope everyone has been well over the last few years, your families are well and your collections are growing.  I see there’s been some beautiful new Predator pieces released in the last 5 or 6 years and we’ve got some new high end collectible companies making new goodies.  The high end market seems to be growing, I’m seeing $1000+ pieces on a regular basis now, they’re stunning, but damn, those price tags are pretty beefy.

Rich did his best to keep the site going with what little time he had, so a big thank you for all his work he was able to put in when he could.  The infrastructure of the site itself hasn’t been touched very much since I last saw it so there is a LOT of work to be done.  I upgraded the entire framework of the articles/wordpress system and it pretty much broke everything.  I’ve been working with a friend for about 2 weeks now trying to get the code updated for the shop and the Predator index of collectibles and it’s finally functional again.  There is a massive clean-up required in the shop, it’s full of old items that are no longer available, sold etc or the items don’t even load.  Please bear with me while I clean it up and add new items that are current products and pre-orders.  Remember, if you order Sideshow products, please do it through our shop links to support the site!

I am also looking to update the design of the site with a new header menu with WAY less clutter, a two column layout instead of 3, and bigger visual elements.  The structure overall will stay along with the colors and such, I just want to give the ol’ girl a facelift.

The Predator Collectibles Index is working, but it’s full of broken photo links and it’s missing any Predator items released in the last 5 or 6 years, so those will need to be researched and added.  If you want to give me a heads up on new items that have been issued by any companies or hobbyists, please leave me a comment with some details and I will add it ASAP.

The newsletter system also appears to have been beaten up by spammers, there was 55,000 emails in it!  I ran some filtering on the list and managed to prune off 50,000 bogus emails so hopefully that list is now pretty clean.  I will definitely be going back to providing product updates and important bulletins when rare collectibles or a costume become available like I used to.

The final challenge will be re-establishing all my contacts with old friends, suppliers and fellow Predator and Alien fanatics that enjoyed this site and it’s services and content.  I’ve already been in touch with some of my close friends that still work in the prop and kit community to let them know Predatorstuff.com is being rejuvinated and open to new opportunities.  I am also looking for content writers that would like to write reviews for the site or other editorial content, I am open to all kinds of content and would love to hear from you.  Leave me a comment or contact me through the contact page.

I am REALLY excited to be back working on the site.  I’ve created all kinds of web projects and some of them pretty big, but this little site will always be my favorite… my baby.

See you all very soon, please post a comment even if it’s just to say hi or report something that’s broken.  All the best!
Dan
