Hope everyone has been doing well, and as promised I am starting to get back into this site and updating like it should. It today’s update, I wanted to bring to your attention some new products that are coming up, or have recently been released.
For those of you following along with the highly anticipated 1:4 maquettes from Cinemaquette, they officially announced the sale of their Alien Maquette yesterday! You can check it all out at www.cinemaquette.com and order your very own for the low price of $1500! Personally I’m waiting to see how their Predator comes out… so far there’s been no sneak peek pics of the pred, so we’ll see what happens this fall.
Next up, Hottoys has released a follow up to their 1:6 scale 14″ AvP snap kit Scar and Celtic predators with new Chopper and Elder preds! You can expect these to be at the same price point because they sold like hot cakes, and will be a limited edition issue as usual. They are currently listed on the Blister site (Chopper and Elder) and for those of you that are into the aliens, there’s also an alien figure in this series that you can check out here.
Sideshow has also shipped their famed Predator Maquettes and I can tell you that this piece is completely AWESOME! I haven’t had a chance to haul mine in front of the camera yet for some photo goodness, but you can check out the gallery for a hundred pics I collected from the net of people receiving theirs! This will give you some idea of how huge and awesome this thing is!
Also from Sideshow, you may have seen the AvP Tiles made by Lance Henriksen. Well they have teamed up again for some HUGE and very awesome platters. There is no Predator one as of yet, but you can tons of Alien themed ones in various super sexy finishes. Check them all out here.
As far as kits go, Nightmare Collectibles has just released a new and very kick arse Predator piece that was announced at this year’s Wonderfest. You can scope that out in our listing and if this kit interests you, just leave a comment with your email or drop me a line and I’ll get you hooked up with a piece.
Thanks about it for now everyone! New kits to be added to the listing very soon!
