    Default Re: HT Predator 1 Dutch

    I'd imagine that HT thought there would be no problem with the likenesses and then found that was not the case. If Fox sees how widely distributed the non-approved pics have become it could queer the deal.

    Let's be part of the solution - not part of the problem.

    Dude, i'm watching the movie right now and that part just passed.. Freaken LOL!!!! Thanks!!!!

    Y'know, we need to remember it's in the collectors' best interests for these pics to go away just as much as it is for Fox and Hot Toys. If the faces are going to be changed significantly between now and release, it would cause a lot of confusion and griping if we'd all been looking at pretty pictures of Arnold and Sonny Landam figures and expecting them to show up that way to our doorstep (especially for those collectors online who are not privy to the situation at hand, as we are). Even if there were no hint of animosity from the licensor about the premature images, I think it's generally beneficial to everyone if the 'unapproved' images are removed, especially if revisions are being made.

    As for how or why the 'unapproved' images were released in the first place, that's got me scratching my head as well... But it's certainly no reason to crucify Hot Toys and/or Fox, it seems like a simple mistake. They jumped the gun a little, that's all. Nobody's perfect (although Hot Toys comes pretty close most of the time! ).

    I hope the pics we saw are not the final product...I'd kill for a Yulli Schwarzenegger sculpt.

    Hate to break your heart, but I'd wager that Arnold was a Yulli.

    I think the sculpts are pretty much spot on, it's just the heavy paint app of the camo that throws them off. the Billy head looked perfect.

    I don't know, I thought it looked like a great Arnold sculpt, with some excellent texturing for the 5 O'Clock shadow and everything, just the paint apps were iffy, but on purpose, I'd bet good money it's a Yulli. The question is, what will the final product be, what we've seen with approval, or steps down to get approval.
