Found these from ezhobi.net. I guess this wasn't totally unexpected but to package it with the DVD? I believe it will only be released in Japan for now. "Only 3000 sets in space"....guess it isn't that limited.

For those that like this better than the "regular" edition at least this time you can cancel beforehand.

Wow, good find!

The Mike

I wonder if this will be widely released or just in a DVD pack???.....if they do a BD PredAlien I'm assuming a BD Wolf is a given...

Limited to 3000 according to the box....and I wonder what the price point will be especially since the PredAlien is already fairly pricey

Pretty impressive....I'll pass though even if they released it by itself.

An all-black PredAlien I might consider though...hmmm....

i was thinking that was the neca predalien, but the box says hot toys. maybe there will be two versions then, one with predalien and other with wolf.

Please no.....I want a battle-damaged Wolf but don't force me to purchase that horrible movie as well...

I dunno. Not feeling the love for this one. Unless you tell me wolf's wristblades can fit in from underneathe the head. Never remembered the predalien having that damage anywhere else in the movie.

I like the look of that a lot. A beat-up predalien seems like a cooler figure.

I don't like this version. It's not "cooler". The painted wound is covering what I think is the best part of the Predalien sculpt: The skull underneath the translucent dome.

I've seen how HT paints blood on their Aliens before. No thanks. Pass. I'm sticking with the original.

What's the scale on this Predalien? Looks like it might fit with the snap kits.

The Mike

If its like the other 1/6 then the tongue could easily be removed.....

I really do like it but not sure if I like it for $180+

I'm guessing since it has the "movie masterpiece" logo and also looks pretty detailed it'll be 18". I probably won't get it but I think it looks kinda nice. At least they really "damaged" the dome as opposed to splattering green paint only.

On second thought it could easily be a minifigure cause 3000 is a pretty big edition size for 1:6 figures.

plasmid303
02-21-2008, 01:02 AM
Well, it can't be a mini figure because the box obviously reads "Movie Masterpieces". Furthermore, the box even says "Battle Damage Version", indicating that there's a non-battle damaged version of this figure (in any scale) out there, but there has not been any other Predalien done by Hot Toys (in any scale but 1/6) except the original Predalien, so this one has to be 18".

One more thing, it's bigger than the dvd case.

3000 does sound like a bit much for such a high scale figure though. Does anybody know the number of regular Predaliens HT will produce?

drunk_leprechaun
02-21-2008, 01:13 AM
im impressed, but like someone here said.. the damage on the dome covers up the best part of this figure... now a damaged wolf with a roaring HS.. that im pretty damn sure id get.

I second that. I think you are in every one of these threads multiple times telling everyone you are done with this line.

Thats great and all, but no need to become some kind of troll. We get it, you dont like these.

I think you still do like them, in fact, I think you love them. Thats why you keep coming around. But they cheated on you with another collector and now you have to try to play it off so you dont lose face. Next thing you know you will be posting pictures of Neca predalien in this thread just trying to make HT Predalien jealous. But you still know deep in your heart that HT Predalien just doesnt love you anymore, and that hurts you.

If i loved them i would have kept them...

Im sorry but i dont have the toy obsession you so intricatley described in the above post.

My opinion is my opinion. If you go to the Wolf thread youll see me saying "nice pics everyone" over and over again..

Because i think this sux im under attack for that opinion? if so bite me.

Why does my opinion hurt you so? if im trolling and it doesnt mean anything and im such a mean guy with no heart dont take what i say with a grain of salt.

Maybe because i dont agree with you and it hurts?

Then tell us why you don't like HT's Predalien? The design of the character itself? HT's execution of the figure? Or is it that you don't like this Battle Damaged version?

I think we'd all understand a bit more if you at least gave us specifics to why you seem to think it's "crap", because I'll tell ya, in this case, you're the minority here.

If not, then Darren is right, you're just bashing the figure for no apparent reason. It certainly kills my anticipation for it, since I bought one.

(If you've already given the said reasons, then nvm, but I can't follow every thread here, so...)

It's one thing to constructively critisize but it doesn't seem like that's what you are doing.....comments like "battle-damaged my ass" don't help. Thing is I've always enjoyed talking about these Hot Toys figures with you Jamal and I always got the impression that you loved your Hot Toys Predators. Then pics of Wolf comes out and you do a complete 180 because Hot Toys didn't give you "leotard" netting. I would of also liked "leotard" netting but that doesn't take away how cool these things still are. Now you are just coming here to tell us that you've quit the line and how much you love dioramas....we get the point. Also I didn't hear you complaining so much when the BD P2 didn't come with shotgun wounds....so why is the Predalien now "battle-damaged my ass"? But as you said you are free to do as you please and we should just choose to ignore I guess.

They show that scene in all the TV trailers and it was one of the official photos...it's not really a spoiler unless you didn't see them or closed your eyes when they were on.

You should just avoid all the AVP:R threads altogether if you don't want to see spoilers...especially THIS thread.

Yeah, but his spoiler was two-fold. The scene in which Predalien got skull-******ed was in the trailer, but Wolf getting impaled was not (at least, not to my memory. Haven't seen the trailer since it first hit).

But I do agree with you, this thread is like a spoiler land-mine. Be careful where you step.

Actually they did show Wolf getting impaled after running his wrist blades through Predalien's head. I guess we can expect a impaled "battle damaged" Predator soon.

I cant have an opinion because it may ruin your anticipation for this figure

Just ignore me, because whetever i fell ill say it regardless of what anyone thinks.

Because i think a figure thats suppose to be battle damaged could atleast be movie accurate and have a missing tongue with some blood spewing all over himself im under fire. Battle damaged? all they did was splash some green paint on the head, abit more thought could have gone into it maybe or creativeness.

God forbid i question Hot Toys..

Thats all i have to say on the matter if you want to continue to duke it out with me over my opinion over this its cool keep posting if not show me that you really dont care as you state and leave me and my opinion alone then, it seems theres a few of you that are to caught up in this fan boy state and cant bare to see anyone question your precious HT's

Oh I see, you were talking solely about the Battle Damaged Predalien, right? Yeah, I don't like it either, it's inaccurate. I thought you were crapping all over the regular Predalien in general.

As for me being selfish. I don't care, I just spent $180 on a collectible. I can be selfish if I want.

Jamal
02-22-2008, 06:32 AM
I was only talking about this one dude lol

I dunno why you think im bagging this whole line, i just made a choice either these or the dioramas because i wanna buy a new pc also.

I made snap judgements on Wolf and he turned out ok from some of the pics ive seen but i dont regret not keeping them because like i said id like a new pc in the coming months also.

So we agree about this figure :)

I think you need to take a deep breath and clear the sand out of your vj.

I was kidding. But you are wound up so tight you seemed to have missed that.

I suggest instead of feeling so victimized and dissatisfied with Hot Toys attempt to please the fans of this movie franchise, you should take these toys and appreciate them for what they are and be happy Hot Toys made them at all.

Stay a bit more positive and everyone wont think of you as SS's Debbie Downer (http://www.buzznet.com/tags/debbiedowner/video/) :)

It looks like it has been released but only with the DvD. Sideshow doesn't release these, Hot Toys does. Sideshow just distribute their figures, so this wouldn't come under those arrangements, but you never know, though not likely based on history. The Grid Alien was a Hot Toys released stand alone figure, and distributed by Sideshow in the USA. So this would be an arrangement Hot Toys have made with the licensor's of the DvD. There may be some arrangement, with them, to have these DvD's distributed.

That's what I meant, I already knew that sideshow only distributed them. Maybe Hot Toys made an arrangement with the licensors of the DVD to produce 3000 for them, and 1000 for the USA.

managed to finally get my hands on one for a steal of a deal. I hesitated when it first came out as I heard a lot of bad things. But having it in hand I'm glad I was able to snag this. The only real issue I see with it is the difficulty standing it up. But I got a dynamic stand I am turning into a diorama stand to display it!!!
