Big update on all things Predatorstuff! Shop stock and more!

May 8th, 2007

Hello everyone!

My apologies for the lack of updates, but I have been working very hard on getting stock for the shop, establishing contacts in the industry and just trying to get everything in place. I have been receiving TONS of requests for kits, props and costumes and I am working hard on being able to satisfy orders and get the stuff people are asking for. So here’s an update on some stuff that is going on and on products I am getting:

The Predatorstuff Shop

My friend Nick has been working on the shop coding, but due to his hectic school schedule, it’s been slow going and it’s taking longer than I had hoped. So at this point, we are about 2 weeks away until the shop is done. So bear with me while I get this done… believe me this is VERY high on my priority list. So give it two weeks and I’ll be all set for orders!

The new Monsterz P2 kit

I recently posted an announcement of this new P2 kit and many of you have contacted me about it. I will indeed be receiving some of these in 2 or 3 weeks and they will be available in the shop. If they are not in stock by the time the shop is launched, they will be available for Pre-Order. I’ll be getting in about 5 of them.

Narin Kits

As you may or may not know, one of the big things I will be selling are legit Narin kits… I have already received stock of some of these items and will be getting a lot more in. So far I have the following items on-hand for the shop:

Pancore Predator
Against AvP Dio 2
Shelaa Female Predator
She Hunter 2 Female Predator
She Warrior Female Predator
Female Samurai Predator
Eradicated Queen Alien
Predator Warlord

I was supposed to get some of those Bone Collector busts but the master mold is shot so none of these coming in until they make a new mold.

Now those are all in stock, but many of you have already contacted me about these and I think they are going to sell very quickly so I am going to put in a second order for these in the next couple of days. Along with those orders, I am also getting that new Hunt for Hunt kit that was just released. If you would like any of these kits, you might want to drop me a line letting me know you would like one (prices range between $89 and $139 plus shipping) so I can order enough for everyone.

I am also working on getting the Model in the House preds directly from the company, but it’s been tough to get a price-list and order going… same deal with trying to get my hands on some of those Creature Shop exclusives. I am in contact with them, but it seems to be really tough to get answer from them and get an order in. I guess they don’t need the money or something lol! So I am working on that and will try to update with more information.

Doll and Hobby Preds

There was a tentative announcement last month that there would be a re-release of those gorgeous 26″ masked and unmasked kits that were originally released by Big Time Kits and then Doll and Hobby. You still see these pop up on eBay as hollow vinyl recasts, but the real deals are solid resin and are SUPER rare seeing as they haven’t been in production for years. Well, the bad news is that this has been cancelled… the person heading up the re-release and the old producer were just too busy with other projects to proceed, so it’s been put on hold, possibly indefinitely. BUT keep your eyes out.. I know someone *cough* that has been able to acquire 1 original masked and 1 original unmasked resin copy and you MIGHT see it pop up on the shop as a 1 time deal! So stay tuned!

Props and Costumes

One of the things I get TONS of emails about is costumes… usually full costumes built and ready to wear right out of the box. Now I am going to try and help people get these kinds of items, but I need to re-iterate that costumes are NOT cheap, so please don’t contact me thinking I can get you a full get-up for $500. These suits take weeks to build… do you know anyone that works for 3 weeks for $500? You make more flipping burgers! So, with that said, if you contact me for a suit, get ready to pay $2500 and up. If you w ant something with animatronics and all kinds of effects, it’s up near the $10,000+ mark. I have quite a few contacts for suits, but many of these guys are getting out of the business because too many folks don’t want to pay the price for the gear. So with limited resources, it’s getting tough to find full suits ready to go, and costs are getting up there, so be ready for it. There’s also a lot of lead time when ordering suits, so bear in mind no one just has a line of suits in a warehouse ready to ship.

As for individual props, those are much easier, especially bio helmets and weapons. I will be stocking some P1 style cannons from Dave Pirkle as well as some other goodies, plus tons of special order items such as bios and other weapons. Just remember my prices might be a bit higher than what you are used to seeing on recasting websites because all of the bios and props I sell come from the original artists and producers, not a recaster.

Other Kits

I’ve also got some extra kits above and beyond the Narin kits coming up, including hard to find items such as SuperEdge kits. In fact if you were unable to score that new P1 Invisible Hunter kit, I have a couple of extra in stock that will be up for grabs. Also, if anyone is interested in purchasing an ORIGINAL Vision Models P1 Predator made by John Wright, I am able to get these directly from John now.

Predator Wall Plate

I’ve had a few people contact me looking to buy Mel’s Predator Wall Plate. Well to be honest, I’m really not sure what happened, but Mel has not contacted me at all to let me know they are done and ready to ship, so for the moment these are a no go. I sent of an email yesterday for an update, but I haven’t heard anything as of yet. Should these become available, I will pick up a bunch and have them in stock on the shop.

So that’s about it for now guys… so if you would like to purchase any of the items I have mentioned or would like me to locate something for you, please post a comment or drop me a line using the Contact Page. In terms of reviews, I just received a WICKED Ancient Predator bio from BioHunter, which is based on the flashback scene in AvP when they show you when the Preds first arrived on Earth and became the rulers of Man. Very cool stuff!

Thanks again for everyone’s patience on the shop…. it will be worth it very soon!

Raptor Arts Releases their Alienated II Bio!

April 19th, 2007

Hello everyone! I wanted to give you all a heads up that my friend Vince is looking to sell his last castings of his newly released Alienated 2 Bio! Unfortunately I don’t have one to photograph and review personally, but I’ve seen Vince’s work before and it’s really top notch and this bio looks just awesome with an Alien style to it.

TheBiggunns Predator Wall Mount!

If you’d like to get your hands on this full size bio helmet, you can contact Vince by visiting his website at www.raptorarts.com for more information and to purchase directly from him.

Again, I don’t have this piece here to photograph, but here are some sample photos taken by other owners:

Enjoy,
Dan

General Update on the PredatorStuff.com Shop!

April 3rd, 2007

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to give everyone a little update on what I’ve been up to and how the shop is coming along. My friend Nick has been working on the coding aspect of the site and recently completed the initial shipping calculator feed, which is the interface that will automatically generate shipping quotes for the check out area. So, work is under way and I’m working with Nick on this as much as possible to have this done on schedule. Ideally I would like to have this up and running in a couple of weeks, but the target is still end of April for completion.

In terms of stock, I have some initial stock on the way, although it won’t be a HUGE amount of stuff. If I see sales are good, I’ll get a much larger order second time around. So far I’ve got a bunch of Narin kits coming in, some new Super Edge P1 kits and some additional hard-to-get items. I’ll also be putting up some special order items and pre-orders for some exclusive kits that are coming up.

So stay tuned, the shop and more updates are coming!

The PredatorStuff.com Store is Coming!

March 16th, 2007

Hi all,

Just a heads up that I am officially announcing that I will be working on creating a shop on the site for you to order kits and props that I have in stock or that can be special ordered. I plan to carry all those hard-to-find ORIGINAL Narin kits and other Asian sculpts that are next to impossible to find that are not recasts. If you have kits that you would like to offer me with bulk pricing to carry in the shop, please contact me.

So stay tuned, I have stock on the way and I hope to be up and running in a month or so.

Reference Area Corrections and the Original Super Edge kit Added!

March 13th, 2007

Hi Everyone!

Just a heads up that I have made some corrections to the kit reference areas, and added some new stuff… here’s what’s been done:

1. The large 1:4 scale Predators that are listed under Small Cottage have been had additional notes added to them to state that these kits were all cast in resin and that vinyl castings are all recasts. These kits were also originally distributed by Big Time Kits and were later sold by Small Cottage and Doll & Hobby. You can see the changes on the Small Cottage Page.

2. There is now a kits area for Big Time Kits and Doll & Hobby, listing the two Predator kits they produced. It should be noted that neither companies sell this kit, but a new vendor has bought the rights and is looking at re-releasing them! Stay tuned for more info.

3. As per my good friend Ian, there was a mistake in the listing regarding the Nayuta Hunter of Darkness kit. Many believe this kit is called the Blowback Hunter of Darkness due to a false article in an old magazine as well as information from Monsters Direct. The Blowback is in fact a completely different kit, and is in fact the very FIRST kit released by Super Edge. You can see this correction and the Blowback listing in the Super Edge area.

4. The new P1 Predator from Super Edge has been added to the Super Edge area.

5. The Narin area has been updated with all the new kits coming up and I’ve moved around a few kits that belonged in other areas. It basically needed a big ol clean up! Also, due to a bug with categories having more than 2 pages, the Narin page wouldn’t load for anyone… that has now been fixed!

That’s about for now but I have many updates and goodies to share, so stay tuned!

Big thanks to Al from The Hive for Catalog Photos!

October 11th, 2006

I just wanted to send out a big thanks to Al who is a member at The Hive and at The Clubhouse for a bunch of sweet catalog style scans he submitted for a bunch of kits I didn’t have listed, and a couple we already have. The best part of all this is that several o the photos provided information I never had on the kits, so this was a GREAT find! Thanks so much Al!

You can see the new pics in the following galleries:

Relic of the Hunter
Jonathan Dewar’s Predator
Gort P1 Predator
Predator by The House That Dripped Resin
Several new SuperDeform preds!

Thanks again Al, you rock 🙂

Kit Origin Corrections!

October 11th, 2006

Just wanted to give a quick update on some kit corrections! There were a number of Narin kits I introduced recently that I openly admitted were assumed to have come from Narin. Well luckily I have some friends in Japan and China that are always able to help correct my assumptions and I have several corrections to point out today. The Elder kit with the Chestburster is in fact from ModModel and the Celtic with Chestburster and Samurai Predator are both from an artist in Thailand known simply as Joe. So I created a new company area called Joe Thailand and his pieces have all been moved into that section. Sorry for the mix up and thanks to ModModel for setting the record straight!
