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.

Ian “Heavy Metal Spike” Campbell – Dec 28th 2008

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!

Welcome to the New Version of Predatorstuff.com!

August 5th, 2008

I am very excited to release the second version of the Predatorstuff.com website! We’ve introduced some sexy new features and streamlined our shop system and we hope you like it and much as we do!

The biggest improvement on the site is the AWESOME new search! Instead of having 3 different searches like on the old version, you can now search the Shop, Reference Guide, Articles and the Gallery all from the main search at the top. The search results are broken down by area and you can filter the results as required. It’s awesome!

Next up is the shop ticker up top… now you can easily see the latest items in our shop and check out those items in detail bu clicking the icon for the item you want. It’s a breeze to see what’s new!

The shop itself has been completely streamlined and updated for easy navigation. You can now browse photos of each item without having to leave the shop and opening the gallery in a new window and we’ve made the detail views easier to read and follow. There seemed to be some confusion as to when stuff was in stock or when it would be arriving, so we hope this will help make things easier to figure out.

Aside from that, we’ve cosmetically enhanced the site and made room for more content so you can see more information at a glance instead of a huge banner taking up half the screen (yes, we know the old banner was nice, but it was HUGE!).

PLEASE NOTE: The gallery and reference guide are still using the old layout.. we’re working on updating those areas as quickly as possible!

So enjoy the new site and please be sure to click the comment icon below and let us know what you think.

Enjoy!

New Predator 2 Diorama at SDCC, New Hellboy Kit and Cheaper Shipping for Overseas Customers!

July 23rd, 2008

Hello everyone! I’ve got quite a few things to tell you folks about today, so let’s get right to it! First off, I am very excited to announce a BADASS new Hellboy kit from Model in the House, the same guys who made the huge AvP Attack kit.


This kit is absolutely massive! The kit features a dynamic sculpt of Hellboy cast in to 16 parts, including his coat in 2 parts and includes the short and full length horns. Kit is over 14 inches tall including the base, and the base measures about 15 x 10 inches. Overall, the kit weighs an impressive 8lbs! You can order this right in our shop by clicking here!

I’ve received a bunch of photos of a painted sample and this looks awesome. Check it out by clicking on the photo icon below:

NEW PREDATOR 2 DIORAMA

This week and weekend is the San Diego Comic Con, and depressingly enough, I am missing it. Oh well! I did the Disney thing this year, so SDCC 09 is all mine! Anyhow, all Predator fans should be keeping an eye on Sideshow Collectibles as they always announce new goodies during the show, and this year they’ve announced a new Predator 2 Diorama!

There are no order details or anything yet, although an order link will probably go up on Friday. keep your eyes peeled to this blog for the pre-order link as soon as it’s available! There will be an exclusive and regular edition. There is a preview link though you can check out and leave a comment if you like… check it out on Sideshow’s site by clicking here.

They’ve also got a new Predator poseable figure listed on their SDCC product list… it’s listed as “Lost Predator” but there are no preview links yet. I suspect this is the special Lost Hunters release that I heard about months ago, featuring the Predators seen in the ship at the end of Predator 2. I’ll update the site when I find out more!

I should also mention that my jaw dropped at this one… a FULL SIZE General Grievous Bust!!!

COME TO PAPPA BEAR!!!

CHEAPER OVERSEAS SHIPPING!

For those of you outside North America, I’m sure you will be VERY happy to hear that I am working on a new drop-ship system that will slash overseas air shipping in HALF! Basically you will be paying the cheapest surface style shipping, but it will be shipped EMS from the producer instead, so do a little dance and make a little love, because cheaper shipping is almost here! This will apply to about 90% of the items in the shop and I am hoping to have the new prices live by tonight or tomorrow. I will post when this is in effect.

So that’s it for now guys! I’m keeping an eye on SDCC coverage this week and I will post updates as soon as I can!

Enjoy! As always, please click the comments button below to share your thoughts 🙂

Final Painted Sample Photos of the Urban Hunter Kit are In!

August 12th, 2007

They have arrived folks! This weekend I received the final photos of the HUGE 1:4 scale kit being sold exclusively by Predatorstuff.com and it looks just completely awesome!

Urban Hunter

For those of you that don’t know anything about this, we are going to be selling this exclusive kit sculpted by Narin himself in the very near future and right now we are accepting pre-orders for the first order we will be making from the manufacturer. The pre-order deadline to get in to the group discount is August 20th, 2007. You will still be able to order this kit after that date (assuming all 50 don’t sell right away), but you will have to pay the full price. To read more about the group pre-order and about this kit, check out this post, or go here to pre-order this kit!

You can also click the photo icon below to view all the new photos:

By the way, any of you guys waiting for the AvP2 trailer, rumor is this week is the week Fox finally releases it online! Keep your eyes peeled!

New Shop Items – Just received EXTREMELY rare Doll and Hobby Pred kits!

July 18th, 2007

Hi folks! Just a heads up that there are some new items in the shop and I’ve added some stock with LOTS more to come in the coming days and weeks. What I REALLY wanted to draw your attention to are two VERY huge and EXTREMELY rare kits. You may have seen Vinyl copies of these on eBay and many folks have these thinking they are originals. These are the massive 1:4 scale masked and unmasked Predator 1 kits originally released by Bigtime Kits and later on produced by Doll and Hobby. The fact is that originals are super rare and aren’t vinyl at all, they’re resin. If you have a vinyl one, it’s a recast.

So with that said, I have managed to acquire 1 of each directly from Doll and Hobby that they had in storage and as far as I know, these are the very last of these gorgeous kits. So, if you want your chance to own these huge kits that are almost impossible to find as originals, now is your chance to score them. I have only 1 of each and then it’s over.

The Masked version is here and the Unmasked version is here and I am selling them for $299.99, which is a fantastic price for these kits.

I’ve also added a couple of female Predators that I received 1 kit of each and some out of stock items have been replenished. Check it all out on the shop! Please note that items display in the shop in order of latest added by default, so the newest items are always at the top pf page 1.

Also, for those of you that are considering getting a suit. Please bear in mind that if you want yours ready for Halloween, you have to order it IMMEDIATELY. Contact me for details or check out our Costume page.

The shop is open! We’re ready for business and taking orders!

May 28th, 2007

It’s been a long time in development, but I am extremely happy to announce that our shop is now open! You can now order original kits and props directly from Predatorstuff.com. Please visit our shop at http://www.predatorstuff.com/shop/ or simply click the “SHOP ONLINE” button located on the new navigation menu located at the top of the this column. We’ll be featuring all kinds of awesome product, so be sure to check back often for new goodies posted in the shop. I’ll be specializing in acquiring original Thai and Asian kits, but we’ll dabble in all kinds of Predator goodness.

I’d also like to mention that all of the kits we carry are 100% guaranteed original kits from the producers that own the rights to those kits. We do not support recasters on this site, so please do not contact us looking for cheaper recasts, we simply refuse to carry them. Keep the garage kit and prop community alive and support the original producers by buying their original kits!

Thanks and enjoy!

Temporary Sales Area Now Open!

May 9th, 2007

Hi everyone!

Due to the tremendous demand for kits and the fact that I am now receiving stock and the shop is not ready, I have set up a temporary sales page so that you guys can see what I have in stock, what is on pre-order and what is available as special orders. I have just created it with some stuff I have in stock now, but I have a lot more to add to this list so be sure to check back often for new items until the shop is ready.

Temporary Sales Page!

Remember, if you have any questions, contact me using the contact page and I will get back to you ASAP. Things are very busy as I try to get stock, get shipping supplies and all the other good stuff that goes with this sales gig, so please bear with me while I get settled in.

Thanks!
Dan
