Well that’s enough of that! Time to Re-Open!

March 2nd, 2006

Well after a few days more than expected of tinkering, I’ve decided the site is in good enough shape to go live, although there are still a few visual tweaks with the gallery and reference guide areas as we work to adapt them to this new layout. So, forgive the mess as you move along :)

As you can see, the blog and the catalog system are no longer two separate sites… we’ve merged them together! So now, while you surf the latest news, you can search or browse the collectible reference guide any time you like by using the links or search box on the right side of the site. I need to redo the link and where to buy areas, but you will find those in the middle column towards the bottom under the latest articles area.

I will be posting new updates as often as I can, but right now I just want to finish the rest of the tweaks, so bear with me and the lack of updates.

I’d really appreciate some feedback on the new layout though! It’s based on the skin I designed for my personal blog site, so let me know what you think.

Take care!
Dan

Wow! Finally an update!

February 18th, 2006

Hi all,

My apologies for the long silence, but I can assure you that I am VERY active and I am excited to announce that I am working VERY hard with a friend of mine to bring you a new and improved predatorstuff.com website, with very close integration with the blog system that will be much easier to work with. So just bear with us while we get things updated and I have a TON of new stuff coming up for you :)

Plogger Gallery Script Hacked – Sorry for the Downtime

February 6th, 2006

Looks like we were down for most of the day today courtesy of some ass that decided hacking the gallery script would be a cool thing to do. They basically setup a fake Wells Fargo bank front end and then sent out a bunch of Phishing emails to grab passwords and such. I was contacted by Wells Fargo today but I wasn’t around, so the host had to shut down the account. Came home today to a suspended site page. Yay! So I re-activated the site and cleaned up the whole mess and patched the gallery. If any of you use Plogger and run the 2.0 beta, there’s a 2.1 update avaialble that fixes the holes.

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, this wasn’t a site specific hack. All these script kiddies do between diaper changes is look up “powered by plogger” in google and just randomely attack whatever comes up. Ahh.. the joy of the internet.

Anyhow, everything is back up and running with zero data loss. Sorry for the inconvenience gang :)

Introducing Biohunter’s Screen Accurate AvP Elder Bio!

February 4th, 2006

AvP Elder Bio Intro

As promised, I will be posting tons of new goodies that I’ve received or heard about, and when applicable, I’ll tell you how to score some of these goodies for your own collections! Tonight, I would like to start off my introducing the latest addition to our reference guide… it is the most accurate fan-built environment helmet based on the Elder’s bio tucked under his arm at the end of AvP. My good friend Biohunter worked EXTREMELY hard this summer to produce this sculpt, and you can see the quality in every aspect of this beautiful piece… from the minute side detailing, to the attached bones. As soon as I received my Elder bio cleaned and painted by Biohunter himself, I had to get this thing in the studio for some photographs!

< AvP Elder Bio

Are you drooling yet? If so, have no fear because you can get your hands on your very own! If you’re interested in picking up this kick ass helmet, you can contact Bio directly at biohunter76@yahoo.com and he’ll be happy to send a raw or finished version of your very own! NOTE! Make sure you tell him I (Faken or Dan Richard) sent you so he knows how you found him… you’ll get a better price if you do!

Awesome job Bio, thanks for bringing this gorgeous piece to us Predator maniacs!

Ready for more pics? Click the link below for the whole enchilada!

Enjoy, and I’ll see you soon with more goodies!

Palisades Toys is dead plus news…

February 3rd, 2006

Well folks, as many have suspected for months now, Palisades is officially on the way to closure, with assets being sold to a secondary distribution company and employees being let go. The following excerpt is from an email sent to all Palisades staff:

I regret to inform you that after more than 11 successful years, Palisades Entertainment, LLC has discontinued its business of manufacturing and selling licensed and proprietary action figures, collectibles, toys and other goods. This development parallels a general trend within the toy industry, including the bankruptcy of one of Palisades’ largest customers.

Palisades has sold a substantial portion of its assets to another industry player, an affiliate of C.A.S. Iberia, Inc. named Limited by CAS, Inc. That company will continue the sale of certain of the brands that Palisades developed, including the Factory X line.

The sale transaction did not include employment for me or my wife Kate, who many of you know. Consequently, neither Kate nor I will be reachable at the buyer’s offices, nor will we have any ongoing relationship with the buyer.

I don’t have any plans for the immediate future beyond enjoying life with Kate and our children, until I figure out our next chapter.

I’d like to take this time to thank all of my friends and colleagues, and in particular, the team that helped me build and nurture Palisades for so many years

You can read the forum post and one of the many discussions cropping up all over the place on the Palisades Forums.

In other news, the last few weeks have been INSANE for me! I actually quit my day job that I’ve had for the last 6 years to concentrate on all my web related projects, and I’ve received TONS of awesome new Predator goodies. In the coming days, I’ll be posting all new photos of kits, statues and props I’ve received, and where applicable, how you can get your hands on some for your own collection! So keep an eye out on the blog and predatorstuff.com because I’ll be updating a lot more often now!

See you all soon!

Sideshow Pre-orders up for Hottoys 14″ Preds and McF 12″ Scar out any day!

January 25th, 2006

Hi all! Some great stuff coming up on the production market for you Predator fans out there that you should probably know about. First off, I have been extremely busy with some new direction in my professional life, so my apologies for the lack in updates in the blog. I know a lot of you rely on this blog for the latest scoops on upcoming goodies, so in a couple of weeks I will be back to posting on a very regular basis.

To start off, Sideshow has announced that they will be distributing the Hottoys 14″ AvP fully pose-able figures in North America, and they are now up for Pre-Order on their site. Vists the pre-order pages for SCAR or CELTIC and get your pre-order in. Bear in mind this is the North American release, so despite the fact that they are about $20 cheaper than everywhere else that are getting in the Asian versions, you won’t be seeing them ship from Sideshow until possibly the summer. The Asian release versions will be shipping in a couple of weeks :)

The second item is to remind you that we should see the McFarlane 12″ Scar Predator in stores any day now, so be on the look out! Post a comment if you’ve spotted some in your area.

Coming soon I will have some new pics to show off of some new pieces I received from various artists that I’m sure you’ll love!

Thanks,
Dan

The Predator Reference Guide has moved to www.predatorstuff.com!

January 14th, 2006

As you can tell, we’ve made some significant changes to our site lol! I just felt this catalog needed to be moved to a domain that made a bit more sense seeing as it’s 100% Predator goodies, so I moved everything over to www.predatorstuff.com. Hope you like the new name :)

Where has Faken Been? Why working of course! S.E.E.D Project and More!

January 12th, 2006

Hi Folks! My apologies for not posting in a little bit, but I can assure that I am most definitely around and VERY involved in the community! Despite the lack of posts in the blog, I have been very hard at work adding new items to the MTC Reference Catalog Guide and I’ve started adding some awesome full costumes and really unique items like AvP license plates and computer cases!

To top it all off, I sort of stmbled into a new project and met someone who is pretty much a legend when it comes to the creation of Alien and Predator related props. You may have heard that Pete Mander has finally broken the fanfilm production ice, and is currently editing his directing debut project known as S.E.E.D

S.E.E.D Logo

I was speaking to Pete about the proper way to compress his digital movie sequences with DIVX when the subject of web design and artwork came up, and it turned out that he had been somewhat disappointed in his current web development of the official S.E.E.D website. I was immediately interested, so one thing led to another and I am now the lead designer of the new website and all printed production work. You can check out the site, which I am working furiously on, at www.seedfilm.com! Be sure to download the latest trailer (DIVX Codec required) and check out this movie that is already obviously better than Fox’s AvP crapfest.

I have also been quite busy with my other web related projects and trying to get some pennies for new kits and such :) I’ll have more awesome kits coming from Creature Shop, Geometric and Narin soon, as well as a paint up of my ScottAS P2 bust! Never heard of it? That’s because there’s only about 10 of these kits cast world wide! So stay tuned for more goodies!

Enjoy!
Dan
