Herman Munster!!

January 30th, 2014

Yes, I know that Herman Munster has nothing to do with Predators or any of the other items we have available, but damn he looks cool!!  This is the first in a series from TweeterHead and distributed by Sideshow.  Those of you of a certain age grew up with the late Fred Gwynne’s amazing portrayal of the Frankenstein monster living in modern day California.  No real plots to speak of but lots of great humor.  TweeterHead is starting this line with Herman and is planning to produce matching maquettes for Lily, Grandpa, Eddie and Marilyn and for the first time ever Cousin Lester, Uncle Gilbert and ZOMBO.  Take a look at the great photos and free up some money.  You won’t regret it.

02/13/2014:  THIS JUST IN!!!  No moss growing on the folks at Tweeterhead.  Not only did they release the Herman Munster statue, they just released Herman’s gorgeous wife Lily.  Now you have absolutely no excuse.  Go take a look.

NECA Reveals New Nintendo-Colors Predator Figure

January 24th, 2014

Those of you who have been around for a while will remember the old 8-bit Nintendo games.  Primitive art by today’s standards but very cool at the time.  Well, they have releasing figures based on classic movie characters like Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Robocop.  The next one will be based on – drum roll please – the Predator.  You know that was going to be the answer or why the heck would we be talking about it?

The figure below shows the original 8-bit character on the right and the updated, but holding true to the original color, on the left.  Check out the whole story and look for updates here.

New, Huge Predator 2 Macquette

November 1st, 2013

Holy smoke, take a look at this monster.  The 28.5″ tall macquette was designed and sculpted by the very talented Amilcar Fong of the Viggiano Studio.  The P2 has always been a controversial character as purists criticize the markings as “not Predator like” and “too colorful”.  I was talking with a fan at Monster Mania who was adamant that the coloring of the P2 wouldn’t work “for a hunter”.  Guess he forgot about the ability to bend light and disappear.  Anyway, coloring aside, this macquette looks amazing.  It is approximately 1:4 scale as is about as movie accurate as possible.  It comes with interchangeable masked and unmasked heads and a way cool looking combi-stick.  I know some of you might be nervous about ordering this $1200 statue because of past troubles with Sideshow paint jobs.  I have to say, in their defense, that the paint jobs appear to be tightening up and looking much better.  So, I will pluck down my $1200 (no, I don’t get them for free) and wait for August!  Check out the amazing pictures by clicking here.

New Celtic Predator from Hot Toys

October 22nd, 2013

The debate still ranges.  Everyone agrees that the first Predator movie was the best.  But, after that it becomes the equivalent of a cinematic jump-ball.  Lots of folks think that number 2 is well…number 2.  However, there is a very vocal group who think the first AvP movie is in the number 2 slot.  I think I am in that camp.  At least today.  My attitude is that any flick that combines Lance Henriksen and a Predator together is a big winner.  As a sidebar, I met Lance a few months ago at a Con and he talked about how much fun that movie was to make.  You can tell when you watch it – for the hundredth time like me.

Anyway, back on topic.  Hot Toys and Sideshow have just listed a new Celtic Predator and, based on the photos, it looks nasty (nasty as in good, real good).  I’ll tell you why I am psyched about this and know it will be a good one – Joseph Tsang did the modeling.  Tsang is right up there with Narin in terms of sculpting ability and body proportions.  This beauty, due in June 2014, features two bio helmets, regular and battle damaged, light-up bio laser targeting system, removable armor and a very nice base featuring a decapitated alien head.  This  is the perfect companion piece to the Scar Predator, so enjoy!

Amazing Predator Sculpture

September 6th, 2013

Every once in a while I get a very interesting, very intriguing email showing me something I have never seen before.  Such was the case in the email I got from Sandra Cutic.  Sandra is the daughter of Jasminko Cutic a gentleman who, in his retirement, has crafted one of the most amazing full-sized Predator statue I have ever seen.  The level of beauty, skill and detail is truly astounding and what completely blows me away is that Mr. Cutic has had absolutely no training as an artist!   He is a total Predator fan and one day just sat down and started pounding and welding some metal.

 

 

 

 

 

Take a few minutes and watch this short video that gives a close examination of this amazing piece of work.

Predator Paint Contest

August 6th, 2013

Can you get any cooler than winning an award for best Predator from one of the main artists who created the original monster for the movie?  The winner of the “Steve Wang Best Predator Kit” autographed trophy at the Jerseyfest Model & Art Contest will be picked out by none other than Steve Wang himself, who will be a special guest at the show all weekend long.  The category is for best paint job/composition of a Predator kit – figure, bust or diorama.  Steve will sign the trophy and give it to the winner at the awards ceremony.  A picture will be taken of Steve handing the trophy to the winner, which will be provided to the person to capture this once in a life time, memorable moment.  The contest and awards ceremony will be held during the vendor show on Saturday, September 14th and will feature many other awards and prizes.  More info about the contest will be posted in the coming weeks so keep checking in! We hope to see many hardcore Predator fans at the show in Predator costumes and with props to say hello to Steve!

Predator LSB Statues Sold Out – But Wait….

July 8th, 2013

As we anticipated, both the P1 and P2 Legendary Scale Busts are all gone.  These two very nice pieces are now selling for $200-300 over the list ($349.99) on ebay and elsewhere.  I know this may sound self-serving as hell but if you want to start or add to your Predator statue collection, you have to act very fast and grab these jewels before they disappear!  Why?  Because they disappear very fast.  Even editions that number 500 pieces go in just a matter of weeks.

BUT, if you still want one of these beautiful busts and do not want to pay $50+ in shipping check out the vendors at Monster Mania (August 16-18) in Cherry Hill, NJ and the JerseyFest Fair (September 13-15) in Fairfield, NJ.  I know that a few of those dealers have been holding on to a few busts so you might luck out.  A WORD OF CAUTION.  The copiers from Thailand and Hong Kong are up to their old tricks so make sure what you are paying for is real – original boxes, certificates of authenticity and the run number.  Have fun!

Members Show off their Predator Suits

June 5th, 2013

Since I assumed responsibility for this site, I have been amazed by the number of people who write me looking for a Predator-type suit.  During June-December, 2012, I received over 300 emails asking where folks could buy a suit.  Until recently I referred everyone to our good friends over at the Hunters Lair where a bunch of very talented people have been producing all sorts of very cool Predator-type suits, weapons and accessories.  But over the past few months, we have joined forces with some very talented artists who create whole suits, bio helmets and a whole variety of very cool accessories.  And the response has been tremendous.  For a very good reason.  The suits are fantastic!  Each suit is totally handmade and hand painted and are works of sci-fi art.  They take about 4-6 weeks to make and can be shipped anywhere in the world.

We have a bunch of very happy customers, some of whom have shared photos of their suits.  Here are a couple to take a look at:

This is our good friend Yo-Han from the Netherlands in his Scar suit (on the left) as he meets up with a fellow Pred at an outdoor event.  He has made some extensive modifications to his suit to meet his own taste and personal needs.

And here is DV from deep in the heart of Texas in his brand new Chopper suit.  Note the very nice skulls on his back, the extended blades on his right gauntlet and his highly detailed Bio-Helmet.

If you’d like to know more about these amazing Predator-type suits, shoot me an email and I’ll fill you in.
