Predatorstuff Reviews Andy Escobar’s Huntress plus we check out Early Reviews or Predators, Talk about SDCC, Sideshow Predator Releases and a Contest!

July 9th, 2010

Good afternoon everyone!  Hope you all had a great week and you’re ready for a sweet weekend as we all pretty much prepare ourselves for the restless nights of SDCC, which arrives in 2 weeks…  and of course we can’t forget PREDATORS opens tomorrow!  Let’s kick things off with a review of an older kit from Andy Escobar known simply as The Huntress.

 This is a piece I acquired about 3 years ago from a producer that goes by the name Nosfera Toys, who has been selling this kit for a number of years and you can see his items on his eBay page by clicking HERE. This kit was initially sold through a company called Rat Factory but at some point the production rights and molds changed hands and Nosfera Toys began casting them.  There has been some debate in the community about the legitimacy of Nosfera Toys producing this kit, but I have never actually heard from Andy (the sculptor) or Rat Factory say anything about it, and Nosfera has been selling this kit for about 4 years now.  So if Andy or anyone else wants to confirm the rights, feel free to contact me.

As for the kit itself, she’s sculpted in a 1:6 scale format, although she is closer to a 1:5 scale at nearly 14″ in height in a crouched position.  The interesting concept with this kit is that it can be purchased with options depending on your budget.  The base, figure and extra weapons are sold separately, so you can just buy the bare minimum figure, or you can go all out and purchase all 3 options together as a package deal. When you contact Nosfera (do it through their eBay page), just tell them what you want and they’ll send you the pricing… I bought mine years ago so I imagine the prices have since changed.

SCULPT – Let’s start off by talking about the base, which is pretty huge at 12.5″ wide, 9″ deep and the stack of skulls reaching 4″ in height.  I absolutely LOVE this base, the skulls are beautifully detailed and look awesome, and the ground texture is full of nooks and crannies and looks extremely realistic.  The cool part is that you can actually buy JUST the base and use it to display any 1:6 or 1:5 scale kits, statues or figures.  In fact you could use this base and display a couple of Hot Toys Predators on it and it would look kick-ass. So top marks on the base, it’s beautiful.

Next up is the weapons pack, which I love… the weapons are all bladed weapons that are a combo of metal blades and bone handles, and the cool thing is that you can build them in several combinations.  For example on my kit, you see in her raised hand she has a double bladed weapon, but this could have been separated to be 2 daggers.  The default weapons pack includes the following: 1 knife, 1 sword, 1 maul, 1 small glaive, 1 large glaive and 2 sheaths.  You can request specific weapons or doubles of anything, just ask!  And apparently these look awesome with Hot Toy Predators if you want some custom gear for your HTs.

Here’s a little close-up of the base, check out the details…

Now lets talk about the missus… she’s sculpted with a distinct P2 style flavor, with the obvious parts being the armor.  The lower leg armor, back, and shoulders are all carbon P2 copies with a custom heavy duty metal bra for the girly parts.  She’s also fully decked out the with usual hunting gear: wrist blades, cannon, medipack and the ol’ trusty netgun, which is also P2 style.  Did I mention she also has a bubble butt? BOOYA!

Overall the sculpt is beautifully done and the castings are great quality, no pinholes and solid high grade resin that won’t destroy dremel bits.  We all know my addiction to Super Edge and Narin kits, but I am really happy I strayed and tried something else because this kit does not disappoint.  It’s always nice when you open a kit box and the two first reactions are “wow nice castings” and “wow this is bigger than I expected”.  Minds out of the gutter fellas…

PAINT APPLICATION –Now what’s a kit without the expert touch of Joe Dunaway? This is one of the earlier pieces I bought from Joe and I was totally blown away by the hyper realistic skin he creates.  He’s able to layer the veins and colors to create an amazing translucent effect that is so realistic it’s almost scary.  The detail work in the armor is also mind blowing, he’s able to work in metallics, dents, armor paint chips and weathering in every area of metal, right down to the tiniest dot you can barely see without a magnifying glass.  Time and time again, Joe proves himself to be a paint master and top of the class for monsters and is the undisputed champion of Predators.  Joe has painted easily over 100 Predators at this point, and each one is unique and stunning and I will always be extremely proud and feel honored to have housed a collection of over 50 pieces created by Joe Dunaway. 

Video Available on YouTube!

This week I put together something a bit different in terms of video… rather than a single review, I decided to change up the format a bit and went with a news show style format by talking about the latest in the Predator world, SDCC, and included this product review.  So rather than a quick review, we’ve got a 22 minute show that covers all kinds of cool goodies.  Because of YouTube’s 10 minute video limit, I’vehad to divide the video in to two parts.  The review itself is in the second video, but I welcome you to check out both parts for all kinds of interesting info as well as a contest for free swag!  Please click the links: Video Part 1 of 2and Video Part 2 of 2. I would really appreciate your feedback on this new format, do you like a longer show covering multiple topics or prefer just single subjects at a time?

I’ve had this collectible in my case for 3 years now but never took photos of the poor lass… so here’s a brand new round of photos of the Huntress I took yesterday for your viewing pleasure!  Click the icon below to view the gallery:

Hop you enjoyed this review and the kit!  If you have any questions or comments about Andy’s Huntress, feel free to contact me directly, or contact Nosfera Toys for purchase information.  Just a heads up that the kit seen in this review is available for purchase!  Contact me if you’re interested or stay tuned as this well be posted on eBay within a couple of days.

Don’t forget today is the big day!  Predators the movie starts in theaters today, so please be sure to post your feedback if you’ve seen it!  Reviews are streaming in on http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10012256-predators/and so far the tomatometer is at 68% and it seems people either love it or completely hate it, not much middle room lol!  Personally as long as we see Predators kicking ass, I am a happy camper.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to see the movie until early next week, so keep the spoilers to a minimum.  And in case you didn’t see this, Sideshow has just announced 3 new Predators products just in time for the film release, check this out:

Ask Sideshow – Aliens / Predator / AVP Edition

Hey guys, thought you would like to check this out… it’s some of the more recent questions collectors have asked Sideshow Production regarding new products for Predator, Aliens and AvP.  Not sure if you guys check this feature out at Sideshow, so thought I would share them here… enjoy.

Q.Wednesday, July 7th, 2010
Things have been kind of quiet on the Alien front. Would Sideshow ever consider making life-size figures of the various alien creatures from the Alien films? What about the Predator for that matter?

Certainly; possibly continuing in the life-size bust line. We’ve had the ambition of making full-size creatures for a long, long time, and eventually will devote our energies to make it happen.

Q.Wednesday, July 7th, 2010
Can we expect tons of newer product from the upcoming Predators movie?!

Yes, certainly. Roughly a metric ton of it. We’ve partnered with KNB EFX Group (the effects company who worked on the film) to create a very large range of products from Predators, and we’re eager to share them with you!

Q.Tuesday, July 6th, 2010
Is Hot Toys planning to make the Predators from the new movie coming in the summer? If so, will there be any Sideshow Exclusives to the figures?
Only time will tell, but we hope you’ll check back soon! 

Q.Monday, July 5th, 2010
Can we expect a bigger Alien Newborn than the polystone statue? Maybe as a Premium Format or, better, a life-size bust or from your future Legendary Scale Bust line?
Possibly, but we feel that there’s quite a bit of ground to cover for the Alien and Predator species products, and we’re more likely to concentrate on purebloods rather than half-bloods for the moment.

Q.Monday, July 5th, 2010
Any chance of an “ELDER PREDATOR MASK” life-size, please???
We have a very healthy line of new Predator bio masks planned for release through 2010, 2011, and beyond. We think you’ll be pleased.

Q.Sunday, July 4th, 2010
Any chance that we will see a Predator – from any movie – in the Premium Format line?

That’s tough to answer. Yes, we are likely to bring a new Predator to life in roughly 1:4 scale, but we don’t know whether it would be a fit for Premium Format or remain a Maquettesort of special release.

Q.Friday, July 2nd, 2010
In all reality, so we can put this to rest, could, would, will there ever, be a day when Sideshow will produce a 1:1 or even a 1:2 scale Queen Alien Bust from James Cameron’s Aliens?
It’s difficult to imagine that many collectors have the space for a true 1:1 Queen Alien bust or that we could safely ship one, so we’ll go ahead and say no, it’s VERY unlikely. A 1:2 scale piece could be very interesting, and it’s something we’ll give more serious consideration moving forward.

Q.Friday, July 2nd, 2010
I’m wondering in what direction you will be going with the Predator species in the near future…I have to say that I have been very disappointed that you guys have only released one true Predator maquette so far, and only two Predator busts (Predalien is more alien). Will you guys be producing more Maquettes and Life-Size busts at a steadier pace any time soon? Also, is there any chance you guys will visit the Lost Hunters from Predator 2?
Very good question. We’re very keen on bringing some new visions of the Predator species to life, both film-accurate and more imaginative. The new Predators film will have us busy for the remainder of 2010 and into 2011, but we’ve also started work with Steve Wang on some very interesting work. In short, you will see much more of the Predator species from Sideshow moving forward.

Q.Wednesday, March 31st, 2010
Please make the ALIEN maquette a standing pose. The crouched pose is getting old!

We will pass that comment along to the design department.

Q.Wednesday, March 31st, 2010
Can you please suggest (firmly, if possible) to Hot Toys to re-release their AVP merchandise? They must still have molds. Even if not, business-wise, it’s a solid idea. They can be priced at $200, and hundreds would pay that price, including me! I bought an Hot Toys Celtic Predator last night, only to find he was actually sold out. This really broke my heart.

Not a problem. We have an open line of communication with Hot Toys, and we will relay your thoughts and represent your request as friendly and diplomatically as possible.

By the way guys, check out my two videos that I posted earlier in this article for additional personal comments I made on this Q&A if you’re interested… just me adding my two cents where it’s not wanted!  You can find more Q&A on all kinds of topics on the Sideshow site by clicking HERE!

CONTEST TIME!

Did you know one of the best ways to help support this site is by using Predatorstuff.com as a referrer when you buy your collectibles?  For example, when you click on an item from this site that takes you to the Sideshow Collectibles site and you purchase something, I make a small commission off that sale.  That commission is what pays for the site, server, prizes and products for reviews.  My advertising and referrals are critical to keeping this site alive and I am VERY grateful for all of you that use me as a referrer.  So to reward all of you, I am going to keep track of all your referred orders from now until September 12th (my birthday) and then I will draw 5 random names and each person will win a cool mystery Sideshow prize.

So let me explain what this referrer thing is…  let’s pretend you went to THIS ARTICLE about the new Sideshow products from Predators.  While browsing the article, you click on the photo of the Berserker helmet and that takes you to the Sideshow site.  Sideshow knows that you just came from my site, so if you buy that helmet or anything else from their site, I get a bonus from Sideshow for referring you to them.  So if you place an order, with Sideshow at this point, you will receive a T order number and a confirmation that your order has been placed.  On my end, I receive a confirmation that someone has just purchased something after being referred to me and I also see that T order number.

So, if you do place an order after clicking on a link from my site and you want to enter this contest, all you do is contact me and send me your name, address and your T order number.  I will verify that your T order is a legit referred transaction and your name is in the hat.  If you make 10 purchases from now to September 12th 2010, then your name is in the draw 10 times!  And this applies to all Sideshow orders, be it for an in-stock item or for a pre-order item.

If for some reason there is any confusion about how this works, just post a comment below by clicking the comment button at the end of this article and I will answer ASAP.

So that’s it for tonight gang, have a great weekend and hope you dig the movie!

Take care,
Dan

Predators of the Lair INVADE SDCC 2009 with 14 Predators!

July 27th, 2009

A record number of Predators showed up at SDCC 2009 this year from www.thehunterslair.com and literally took over the place as the fans lined up and swarmed the hunters for a closer look and photo-ops!  The Star Wars stage was completely taken over by Lair members and many were interviewed by local, national news and even by Time Life! 

We’ve got literally HUNDREDS of photos coming in from all the guys and gals that were with our galactic hunters as well as video footage, so I’ll try to keep the gallery updated with everything I can find from the show.  The videos are hilarious, showing them storming the show floor and you can see the crowd’s reaction, we’ve got kids screaming in terror and women attendees swooning!

Check out the following videos, and there’s more on the way!

As Lair members get home, tons and tons of photos are coming in and I’m trying to collect them all and put them in one central gallery so you can see them all without having to look all over the place.  Click the photo icon below to check it all out!

You can also check out the Lair forums, there’s a few threads going with members swapping photos, videos and stories.. it’s a lot of fun!  Thread 1, Thread 2 and Thread 3.

Way to go guys and gals, hope to join you all next year!

SDCC 2009 Sideshow Chat Comes to an End!

July 26th, 2009

And so the end of another SDCC Sideshow chat has arrived, signaling the beginning of the end for SDCC coverage madness.  The Comic-Con doors are closed and the cleanup begins after hundreds of thousands of people have taken in all the sites and sounds of the ultimate pop-culture event.  For those of us stuck at home, we had venues like the Sideshow chat to keep us involved as fellow collectors have a chance to share laughs, critique the latest offerings and trade industry information seconds after being announced on the show floor.  This year I had the chance to hang out with some familiar faces as well as make new friends, and I would like to thank the following fellow collectors and friends for making the chat a memorable one!

  • Ozzfan
  • MadCow
  • Rozz
  • Fury
  • Nash
  • Guru
  • Kibi
  • Zombie Killer
  • Rogue
  • HappyBoy
  • Ray
  • Eli (Winnipeg sucks, but you made me laugh)

I would also like to extend a huge thanks to Sideshow Marc, the host of this year’s chat, who did his best to handle chat duties as well as his network admin responsibilities while keeping the prizes flowing for the crazy chat fanatics.  And of course a big thank you to Sideshow for donating so many awesome prizes for chat trivia!  We had awesome prizes such as a Leia Slave PF statue, 2 Iron Man Stealth LSBs, 2 Oversized Vader VCDs, some scaled helmet replicas, some HT figs and a bunch of 12" figures from Marvel to Indiana Jones to Reservoir Dogs.  Lots of great loot and I look forward to getting my box of goodies (yeah, I hauled at trivia!).

Couple things I would like to mention though, and I don’t want to seem unappreciative… but there was a big lack of Sideshow participation in the chat this year.  This is the first time I see only 1 staff member running the entire chat, not to mention he was so busy that at one point we went about 8 hours without a single sign of SSC participation.  There was no discussion panel in the chat, no Q&A session, nadda…  the morning of the first day (Preview night) did see Alex and Chris for a little bit of chat, but that was it.  So I certainly appreciate the trivia sessions and I know Marc did his best, but there was definitely a feeling of a lack of participation by Sideshow in the chat itself.  Hopefully this can be rectified for the next SDCC and maybe we can get more chat folks involved!

The other bummer was the lack of a REAL IRC server this year… instead Sideshow went with a Javascript/PHP chat utility embedded in to the Sideshow site, and it was fairly horrible.  The interface was clunky and slow, and as soon as more than 20 people would join, it would bog down horribly.  Sunday night was really bad, with typed responses sometimes taking 10 – 15 seconds to show up on the screen.  Marc did his best to deal with it, but the interface clearly was not up to the task.  I also didn’t like the fact that there was no way to log the chat, so I couldn’t log stuff and then look over it later for information or links I may have missed during breaks or when I couldn’t be in front of the PC.  Please go back to having a real server and allowing people to connect either via a web applet or an IRC chat client!

So aside from the lack of Sideshow participation in chat and the icky chat application, it was a great time with tons of awesome fellow collectors and great prizes… so thanks again to Marc, Sideshow and community members that took the time to come out to chat with the rest of us!  See you at Spookfest in October!

Off to bed folks, we’ll do a final round up tomorrow!  Final web contest winners will be announced tomorrow and SDCC Sideshow Newsletter winners will be announced on July 30th!

Thanks,
Dan

The Hunters Lair Members Prepare to Invade SDCC 2009 in Predator Style!

July 24th, 2009

The weekend is upon us and www.thehunterslair.com is preparing a formal Predator invasion of the SDCC 2009 convention floor with 15 members attending in full Predator gear and will be carrying the Lair banner put together and maintained by Carl aka Carlart!  Keep an eye out for this banner if you’re at the show and get the camera ready.

The Predator costumes are EASILY the fan favorites on the show floor, with HUNDREDS of attendees flocking to our hunters for photo ops or just to check out the suits.  If you see one, remember to respect the hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars that go in to these suits and don’t grab or pull at them… pulling at the dreads REALLY pisses people off!  Here’s the full list of hunters hitting up SDCC this year:

Sideshow Alien Warrior Maquette Photos and Gallery Update!

July 23rd, 2009

Another hectic day comes to a close at SDCC and Predatorstuff.com, and my final post for today will feature the long awaited Alien Warrior Maquette and a gallery update I’ve been working on to show some of my favorite pieces from the show so far!

This piece is looking gorgeous although a tad smallish at 20" tall and the rumored price is $799.99 with no confirmation of a required deposit either way.  If you did miss it, any of the $1000+ Sideshow pieces seem to have a deposit requirement on them now.  You can check out some additional pictures of the Alien Maquette from the SDCC I’ve collected by clicking HERE or check out the new SDCC 2009 gallery I’ve been working on by clicking HERE!

The gallery includes new photos of the Predalien Bust, Cinemaquette Superman statue, Darth Vader Bust, AVPR Diorama and more!  I’ll work on the gallery more tomorrow as well and try to get more pieces in there.

Oh and in my travels this afternoon, I noticed several older Predator items that are available as second chance opportunities on the Sideshow site and I was sure these were sold out!  I’ve added them to the shop, but here the quick list:

Fewture Ancient Predator on Horse (this is the statue that at one point was selling for $650+ on eBay when it was sold out from Fewture!)
Hot Toys Lost Hunter Predator (And it’s on special!)
Hot Toys Female Predator Machiko (She’s on sale as well!)

And last but not least, about an hour ago I won a Stealth Iron Man LSB in Sideshow trivia!  Thanks a bunch Marc, awesome prize!

Gnite all,
Dan
