This is a thread idea that EndIessRAlN and I came up with. In the style of the "I like Berserker Predator" thread, this is the place for people who love (and still do) the original HT Predators and Aliens from the first AVP film.
These figures had a lot to set them apart from the later ones. Bendable dreadlocks, which while a pain at times, gave control of dynamic hair posing :). Bendy hands, something that only the Xeno's have nowadays, were also included with the Preds. Not to mention the hulking height and bulk these particular hunters seem to have over others.
It's time we get a thread entirely devoted to all things HT AVP. Whether it's by discussing mods, posting pictures, or remembering how you tracked one down, give some love to the ones that started it all.

does this mean everyone who doesn't have a pathological need to justify what they paid for these turds can make a "AVP figures suck and the newer figures are better in every way" thread?

or can we just post in here?

What's your problem? Not everyone hates them, and there's nothing wrong with collecting them. There's obviously still a huge market and desire to own these, and they're not even bad. I'm not saying these are better than others; they're just another release. Some like these, some don't. By all means, start an HT AVP hate thread if you want. But believe me, these figures are still alive and kicking, like it or not. We've got a bunch of threads dedicated to the P1, a bunch to Predators, and a bunch to P2. So here's one for AVP. Simple as that.

No offense but I would like you to NOT post in here, like Blade said some people like them, so don't. This thread clearly doesn't fit your opinion towards AVP. I respect your opinion but don't post in this thread if you don't like AVP.

I'm sure many people here would have gotten these on first release back when Hot Toys figures weren't quite as expensive as they are now and thus have no need to 'justify' anything. Those people would probably admit that standards have risen but are also probably quite happy having them in their collection.

These were out before I started collecting 1/6th. I was aware of them and thought they looked astounding compared to the McFarlane Predators I was buying at the time. Initially I regretted not having them but not so anymore. Its P1 and P2 and the first 3 Alien films only for me and I have interest only in owning collectables from those films. Still haven't seen Predators but I have a feeling I won't accept it like I do the films of my childhood and thus my feelings about the figures would end up being fairly lukewarm just like they are for my AvP:R figures..although Royce looks cool. Anyway thats a bit of a tangent.

I don't own any of them but I love the older Preds. The only one I really had any problem with is P1's height. Still it would be nice if HT updated a few of the older Preds.

there's no reason it can't be a love/hate thread. it accomplishes the same thing (drawing attention/preaching to the choir) without adding another stupid thread to the forum. i'm just being concise. plus, the AVP lovers can come up with new arguments for blowing $400+ on a 1:6 figure with bendy sausage dreads.

win-win.

Ignore them Blade, they are obviously unhappy in life if they have to crap on things others enjoy.
yes, because posting a dissenting remark on a toy forum is indicative of my worldview.
on another sarcastic note - i feel miserable because i don't like crappy figures. sad face :(


love/hate thread!! come on! give it time, it'll grow on ya.

Prefused, always thought you were a cool guy that would respect the opinions and the likes of other collectors but for you troll like this in here is really shameful. This is a thread for all of those that like the AVP stuff, or may show some appreciation for it. That's that. You got a problem with it? GTFO! Couldn't believe my eyes when I read your messages. Sheesh. Take your hate and go somewhere else with it. There's enough to go around here that people are already sick of it. I sure am.

Blade, we knew this would happen when we thought about creating this thread so screw the haters and ignore them. It's the best we can do to not stooping into their level. I never bash on what other people like and as a collector one should never have to do that. Got nothing nice to say about other people stuff, they should just STFU!
Awesome starter pic BTW. Celtic for the win. In my mind, Grid didn't last 12 seconds with the big guy.

Stag, I thought you sold all of your AVP Preds. Those old pics? And thanks for breaking the ice.

My exact feelings, its really all about predator 1 and 2 and the first 3 alien films. Probably for the same reasons, those are the ones i grew up with since i was young.

Anywho, onto the AVP Hot Toys, while i dont own any i do love the look of the ancient and celtic. Although i loathe the faces underneath (terrible, lazy design in the movie) i do love the masks and the armour. And those huge shoulder cannons are awesome.

that's ridiculous. i've never claimed to be cool. also, i can't go somewhere else with my hate because they charge extra for carry-ons now and i won't pay for it, i won't. but, i'm in here busting chops for entertainment because Shark Week is coming up and i'm not leaving the house until it's over.

Holy ____, I want an AVP Elder now. Dude, that pic is AMAZING. At first I thought it was the throne statue, but that thing never looked that good.
Great lighting. Really makes the quills and wrinkles pop. I just may have to set aside some dough... damn new Predators figures getting in the way of my beloved golden oldies :D.

To the rest of you guys, great collection shots! Love the Ancients, but I've accepted that I'll never be able to afford one. Keep the love comin'!

As far As AVP goes, i only have the Grid Alien and the Elder, I like both a lot. The Elder I think really stands out because he's the only Predator with a cape. :yess:
I'd really like to get a Scar, and maybe even celtic and Chopper, but due their prices and my lack of money I'm in no rush. I think hot toys made improvements in their predator figures, but the AVP figures are still pretty cool.

Thank you Blade3327 and EndlessRAIN for starting this thread.

I've been collecting HT 1:6 for a couple of years now, and I finally found a AVP Elder for a good price and PROUDLY display it at my office.
I've yet to apply the quills, nevertheless, this is one of my favourite pieces period.

I'll post a pic soon.

To AVP haters...:pfft:

I personally like the bendy dreds and the poseable hands are great for achieving realistic poses.

Wow great pic and pose mate! :yess:

I don't own any of the AVP Preds (I only got into the 1:6 game with the release of AvP Wolf) but I'd sure love to get my hands on a Celtic and an Ancient :nana:

Some people say the AvP Preds don't look as good as the newer HT Preds but after seeing these pics I don't know if I agree. The sculpting is as great as the latest releases of various HT predators. I think the area they really did improve is the painting.

One of the members here had his Sideshow Ancient up on feeBay for $400-something. It didn't have the original helmet, so he included a recast of it, along with an extra scarred Asia helmet cast. Dunno if it got sold or parted out, but I would've expected someone to jump on it. Great price for what you get.
If you're interested, the prices on Scar have gone down on eBay from what I've seen. A bunch of listings that ended over the past week went for around $315-$350.




@Everyone: HOLY CRAP! The first Ani-Com Scar Predator to go on eBay in quite a while...

Honestly, the Ani-Com Scar is the only one I don't have. Always felt like having 2 Scar Preds was a bit pointless. And after seeing Silent Surfer's Custom Elder to Scar head, I was sure that I would rather have a custom done for me. Well I got Elvis1976 to do one for me and it will arrive here in a week or so. Keep this thread alive until then guys so I can show it off.

Okay, finally got a PB account (about friggin' time, can't believe I didn't do it sooner), so I'll be able to post lots more pics. Here're all the shots I took of my Celtic today. Well, the first one's actually from a few weeks back. I used custom wires made from guitar strings, but decided to remove them now since I'll track down the real things soon.

That was my biggest issue with that film. One Alien killed two Predators in 5 minutes. LAME.
Great figures though. I bought a Scar for retail and had him proudly displayed for a couple years before selling him to finance other figures. He was awesome for his time, but once I got my P2 Elder, no HT Pred could compare to him. here's some crappy pics...

Scar was a good guy. :D

Well at least Celtic put up a fight. And it was a pretty good fight too. But he still lost because all of his weapons melted under the acid blood of grid, while no one else had any melting with their weapons. AVP was filled with inconsistencies that makes me want to strangle Anderson. Celtic deserved a better death and so did Chopper. And if Scar survived the whole ordeal, the movie would have been a lot more enjoyable.

One of the members here had his Sideshow Ancient up on feeBay for $400-something. It didn't have the original helmet, so he included a recast of it, along with an extra scarred Asia helmet cast. Dunno if it got sold or parted out, but I would've expected someone to jump on it. Great price for what you get.
If you're interested, the prices on Scar have gone down on eBay from what I've seen. A bunch of listings that ended over the past week went for around $315-$350.




@Everyone: HOLY CRAP! The first Ani-Com Scar Predator to go on eBay in quite a while...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hot-Toys-Scar-Predator-8th-Ani-Com-Hong-Kong-Exclusive-/150472587512?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2308dd78f8

Starting price seems decent enough. That sucker seems to be the rarest HT Pred ever...
Wow, didn't know they were getting that cheap..after a year of wishing i had more money, i basically just gave up.. Thanks, i'll have to start hunting again.

I want to reclaim Celtic the most, but he goes for way too much than I'm willing to pay for a 1/6. If I can get a loose one at around the prices you listed for Scar, I'd buy it. Otherwise, I can live without.

Take the time to pose them one at a time. Have them all come out and then just put them down one at a time starting with the inside ones first. That's what I did. Oh and to make your Celtic more accurate, swap his necklace with a Wolf Predator Necklace. the wolf Necklace is actually a movie accurate Celtic necklace that they reused in the AVPR movie. :D

Mcfarlane AVP stuff is fetching for a pretty dollar. If you got those put those up on ebay.

Y'know, I was onboard with all of the NECA and McF Alien and Predator stuff. Sometimes I wonder if I should sell off all of those and collect only 1/6. Nah, I won't. The new NECA Preds need a home.

Or will I... I'll get kicked out of the NECA club, but at least I know I'd get a good value to buy all the HT stuff I've wanted. I have an opened (but kept the box, which was signed by Todd McFarlane at SDCC '10 this year) McF Alien Queen box set, among plenty of McF AVP figs. I sell those, I load up on HT AVP's, and my space crisis for the future HT Predators figures will be solved. So tempting... but my parents would argue, "but you just got that stuff, it looks so nice!"

Yes, I actually have a guilt complex for this hobby, even though selling my older lower-end stuff would benefit me greatly. ARGH! What to do, what to do...

I wouldn't even say ugly, just poorly designed/sculpted. The AVP preds are cool and all but they have by far the worse the unmasked sculpts out of all the predators. (except the elder of course)

As decent as some of these pics are. I still hate these things. Don't jump on me if you like them; more power to you. Many complain about the bodies on P1 and P2, but these are more off than those. Most of the Preds in AVP were fat (stocky:cuckoo:). Those bodies needed to be reworked more than P1 and P2.

But it shouldn't oxidize THAT quick!? It takes about a full minute or two.
Fact of the matter is.... aliens are deadly even in death.
So, some plot holes are needed for the sake of the continuation of the movie.

Same goes for Wolf's foot in AVP-R.
Sure it looks cool to squish an aliens head with your feet, but a peg leg should be in the "squisher's" very near future. :wink1:

Also, aliens can use projectile vomit. So, I wonder why none of them used it against a Pred.... or better yet.... to free the queen instead of ... proboscis raping time.

Elder_Predator2
08-01-2010, 08:36 PM
Okay but that means you don't have to buy anything else then? Or you just buy stuff for one person, have low bills and don't have a large savings account. Each month you make roughly $1500 right? Half hour lunch each day turns an 8 hour day to a 7.5 hour day. Five days a week means 37.5 hours a week at $10 yields $375 per week. Each paycheck then is $750. Roughly two pay checks a month goes to $1500 a month. You have 8 figures coming NOW and if each cost $200 then that is $1600. More than you make in a month. Plus you have 4 $200 Predators but I didn't count those.

All of that is an assumption and I am honestly trying to figure out how you can afford that plus the costs of living. But since you work under the table that means the government doesn't know you make money so then I guess you could get government housing and food stamps. But thats all doubtful. Not trying to hate on you again bro, just trying to understand how you can spend so much.

Blade3327

How do you people have so much money.. I mow so many lawns and it just ain't enough..:monkey2

Honestly, after careful calculations, I literally have juuuuuust enough money to get the new HT Preds: Berserker, Falconer, and Tracker. Technically, two of them. The other would be for Christmas or my B-day or something.
I'd love to get an Elder or Chopper (or Scar if I can score either of them for under $300-$350), but I probably won't be able to until 2011. I'm psyched since it means I can still get three totally new Preds, but these AVP's are just so cool.



@Elder: The thing is it's not $200 per figure. We're talking Ani-Com Scar, man. Intense. No wonder PVA has to sell so often.

So I guess my only neutral thoughts would be to carefully think about what you want to buy. Focus on something you really truly want, and you'll be less-inclined to buy more stuff you'll end up letting go of a couple months later. If everything you own is a true winner, then don't go through the "in with the new, out with the old" HT cycle that so many seem to use. Buy only what you really want when you have the actual money, instead of selling off things you either don't care too much about, or that you'll want back later. Right now, I don't have a single HT figure I'd get rid of. I want more of course, but I'm not selling off my current stuff to get it. I'll just wait to buy until I have the dough. Win, win. Just takes some more waiting, but I've got the "Predators" Preds coming my way to cushion the situation :D.

I have figured, as posted last night, that i can get all the new Predators. All I gotta do is sell some stuff because I never touch the bank account or the money I make at work. that is saved for life expenses. Paypal for all my higher collectibles. I use cash for NECA but those are cheap. Extra sets are covered through Paypal again though. Paypal is my 'checks and balances' system.

Okay but that means you don't have to buy anything else then? Or you just buy stuff for one person, have low bills and don't have a large savings account. Each month you make roughly $1500 right? Half hour lunch each day turns an 8 hour day to a 7.5 hour day. Five days a week means 37.5 hours a week at $10 yields $375 per week. Each paycheck then is $750. Roughly two pay checks a month goes to $1500 a month. You have 8 figures coming NOW and if each cost $200 then that is $1600. More than you make in a month. Plus you have 4 $200 Predators but I didn't count those.

All of that is an assumption and I am honestly trying to figure out how you can afford that plus the costs of living. But since you work under the table that means the government doesn't know you make money so then I guess you could get government housing and food stamps. But thats all doubtful. Not trying to hate on you again bro, just trying to understand how you can spend so much.


No biggie bro. I have a 2-hour lunch break I work 8-hours.
I have a savings account, as well as a checking account. I'm able to afford all these figures, because I just sold my Wolf bust, for $1,300 and the $500+++ I just made by selling Marcus, Bats, and the Joker.

Also:lol I've been saving ALOT so...... I have $2,000 saved up for collectibles alone(I've got money pockets for things such as car parts, clothing, games, ect). I'm 18, and still living with the parents:lol
So you can imagine that helps too....although I pay rent, and alittle $$ for utilities too.

Good lord, I feel so alone. With me, I just save my hundred dollar bills until the on-going tab in my head runs dry. Then I pay back my folks (who cover the payments originally). I just keep track of it all until it's gone. Then it's easier to calculate how much to pay them -- all of it. Duh. It works out pretty well... but not very independant for this sorta thing.

Same here. That and my two Terminator Salvation Endo's.... Those guys just look too cool. I keep 'em downstairs with my NECA T2's. Better to keep the AVP and Terminator stuff seperate, plus I need more room since my AVP collection is getting out of hand. That is, unless I sell my NECA and McF stuff. 'Bout time.

Nice plan bro! I will be doing that too but hopefully in college. Gotta get a good education to make them big bucks.

Hell's no ;)! What one thing would I save if my house burned down... I always thought that years from now, when I sell all of my collectibles, I'd keep one or so. Celtic is that one. Plus he means a lot. I've wanted one for years and it took a lot to cross the line and unload more cash than I've ever unloaded before out of pocket for him. Got him for a great price (thanks Karamazov80! :)), and he's not going anywhere.

Even though i will not buy anymore AVP to collect the line (Celtic and Scar) i still have love for HT AVP. This AVP line got me into collecting 1/6th scale. I remember when i bought chopper from ebay, i wasn't sure if it was worth it at the time. When i got it, i was amazed by the detail of it. I was hooked ever since.. Thank you AVP! :)

I start side to side. Actually try to get as much onto the side as possible when you first start so you don't get stuck with too many hairs to deal with in the back. Let me see if I have any back shots of any AVP Preds...NOPE! Nothing that can be helpful right now. I'll see if I get some time later and take some pics for you. Taking pics is easy. Uploading it onto my slow @$$ laptop is the tough part.

Yea it's still on it's way here. Seb had sent it last week and I should get it sometime middle of next week I think. Let me find the pics Seb had posted of just the head. And I'll take full body shots after it gets here.

Found it!


Thought i would post the Scar head i did for my friend Endlessrain.
It's an AVP Elder head repainted.

Hope you will like it buddy, it's on his way to you now.

IMHO, in that kind of combat armor, a chubby Pred would look out of place. It works in P1 and in P2, but I think AVP called for a different look. But hey, in AVP2 Wolf was anorexic... just saying ;).

Nah...it looks stupid. Predators are buff, but not huge. They should look like Predator 1, always. Which is why the Wolf sucked. He was too skinny, and the AvP preds were too fat. Awful.

Totally agree with GatackFC. Preds can be as diverse at humans or any other species. No one's gonna tell a black person that he should look Chinese or Hispanic. One comes from a different culture and the other from another. I like the idea that there are all kinds of different tribes and physiques and armors and looks to Preds. If they all looked the same, it would be rather boring.
