I haven't heard anything official yet, but over at the Scifimilitary forums it is reported as fact:

Frigging fantastic news if this is indeed confirmed!

But yes, great news. HT did mention they were working on it. Just waiting for the official announcement at TF.

I'm more interested in seeing whether or not their Dutch likeness has improved so far removed from their initial T3 Arnold which was all battered and bloodied up to hide lack of licensing. HT can really nail sculpts especially Yulli's recent offerings and I'd love to see what they come up with in terms of an Arnie....

Well the ToyFair in New York is just around the corner so if there is ANY news it should be there! IF true this is AMAZING news, i'm a WAY bigger Predator fan than I am an Alien(s) one!

I just hope Hot Toys doesn't try to "Hide" Arnolds likeness like they did with the Terminator they produced.

Good news indeed!

HT can really nail sculpts especially Yulli's recent offerings and I'd love to see what they come up with in terms of an Arnie....

This statement is a bit contradictory, the first part implies they couldn't pull of an Arnie likeness, the second part points out they never tried because of licensing, which is true.

I'm sure an Arnie back when they did the T1 figure wouldn't have been stellar, but probably looked like him, much like early Rambos. IF they have the likeness rights to Schwarzenegger, this news will be great, if not, I'm going to be less than enthused.

Reason I say that is, likely, a Dutch will, and should, be on a muscular body, so if they can't do his likeness, then the question comes up of where, if at all, you get a good Arnie head for it as the muscular bodies don't use the same joint as the Frontline heads are made for.

I'm holding out for good things here, but Dutch is probably the only one I'll get since they'll likely average $100 and I'm not attached to any of them enough to spend that much, but Dutch and Predator are key, so hopefully they will have rights.

The Mike
01-29-2008, 04:30 PM
Right, that what I meant in terms of likeness that licensing is the reason that the Terminator head was unrecognizable.

The only ones I want from P1 are Dutch and the Pred so I'm watching intently on what they release. If the offering isn't top notch like their Brando I'm hoping that a talented customizer like Darren per se would be able to recast his amazing Arnie likeness in a head that'd easily go onto the HT joint....

It's not so much that I don't want these guys, it's just I don't want them/not a fan of them enough to put them before other things I collect.

I collect Star Wars, LOTR, Terminator, Aliens, Predator, Pirates of the Caribbean and Rambo. Most of those lines are going strong and I'd rather not spend money on say Mac and then have to pass on a Barbossa from Pirates or something like that. First and foremost I'm a Star Wars collector and as strong as Sideshow's moving with that stuff, I have a feeling they're going to get a lot of my money. If money were no object, I'd get the entire team from Predator, but on a budget, the Dutch-Predator showdown is irresistable.

He wrote Lethal Weapon. Hawkins was played by no other than screenwriter Shane Black. Without him there would be no Lethal Weapon 1,2,3, or 4.

01-29-2008, 05:11 PM
I realy hope they make a good dutch figure, it would be my first arnie figure... i just hope he's not on a muscle body. Or if he is, they improve it's articulation from the Dutch figure's muscle body. a 15-20 Degree rotation just is not enough for such a physical character.

Oh well. even if they do go with a muscle body, i suppose i can swap it to a reg body.

he has an interesting biography.............i guess in the hollywood screenwriters circles he would be considered "the man" for price he fetched for his writings.

Heh, maybe they'll give us a "muddy dutch" version that hides his likeness... seriously, though, it must be hard having to deal w/ character likenesses whose portraying actors have moved on in other directions since an 80's film, and have blown up so big it takes a ton of extra effort to get their scanned face at all;
newer movies nowadays are expected to have toy licenses, but there must be complications getting rights to produce an actor's face based off of a role whose fame for it has dwindled since the movie left theatres (let's face it, while Sigourney will always be seen as "Ripley", Au-nolde is usually referred to as the Terminator... though, of course, Predator is my favorite between the two); I suppose there's also a chance that getting the rights to produce merchandise from a film and getting an actor's likeness as they are NOW, when they may no longer affiliate themselves w/ the same companies even (I'm talking generally) might make two entirely sepparate and EXPENSIVE buiseness transactions... hmmm... HOT TOYS' stuff is only getting better and better, so I'm not TOO concerned...

I don't know if I'd want to shell out that much cash if they made the whole squad, especially if they released them all at the same time... but Dutch, Blain, Mac, and Billy would be must haves. I'd want Dillon too, but I've already got an Apollo Creed for conversion purposes.

01-31-2008, 08:07 AM
Even if they released them two or three at a time, like with the Colonial Marines, it wouldn't be quite so bad, but if they all come out at the same time, like the Res Evil figures, it's gonna be a world of hurt. :monkey2

Edit: You can count on the uniforms and gear to be top notch! That's one of the biggest reasons I'd want 'em!

Well here in Holland a few places have HT figures for order, i have never bought a HT figure (yet). My stuff is mostly Sideshow and Weta. I wonder how it works though. When they are sold out at sideshow is that the complete quantity or are there any left for sale in shops. For example the HT AVPR figures are sold out at sideshow but dutch merchandise shops still have them for order (not in stock), even the predator 2 HT figures:confused:?

Sideshow distributes them, but they're not the sole retailers of them. If it says it's out of stock on Sideshow's site, that's just Sideshow's allocation that's out of stock, and other places may still have them.

I really hope Hot Toys release a new Predator 1 line. I just started getting into action figures. I don't own any currently but have been doing allot of research. I'm another Predator/ Alien fan but finding older Predator figures in the Hot Toys line is a pain and expensive. So I'm waiting on the new line figures from Hot Toys to start my collection.
