    Default Re: Avp - she predator - machiko

    WHOA, the retail price on her is more than I expected. $150-$160? I was expecting it to be no more than $130.

    Who am I to complain anyways, I will still buy her.

    I'm not surprised. It's the first to sport a new body type. Look at what happened when Sideshow released the first figures with the Clonetrooper and Prometheus bodies.

    Definately getting this one!
    This may have been mentioned before, but the Hot Toys sculptor that did the head sculpt for Machiko also did an Angelina Jolie sculpt. It's obvious that the sculptor (Yulli) has incorporated her previous work into the machiko sculpt.


    Artists:

    Character Concept by Howard Chan

    Character Design by JOSEPH TSANG

    Armor and Accessories Sculpt by JOSEPH TSANG

    Head Sculpt by YULLI

    Head Art Directed by JC HONG




    I found the following pics:

    here is Yulli's Jolie sculpt:




    Yulli is the girl on the right and JC Hong is the guy standing:

    And then don't forget to ADD a week because Sideshow loves doing their "Previews".

    I wish Sideshow would cut that out with the Hot Toys/Medicom figures...it's no surprise to us because by then we've already SEEN the whole figure. Just cut the crap and go straight to the Pre-Order, Sideshow!!!!!

    Some people that were ordering multiples of the AvP:R figures had their extras "cut" and refunded because abc-express didn't get the entire alottment they wanted to or something like that.

    Given that I recall seeing the Terminator endoskeleton, Appleseed Briarios and Deunan parted out, I'm sure someone will part this one out as well.

    I still never understood parting out the endoskeleton...

    Considering how fragile the pieces are, I imagine people would be looking for replacement parts. Also, the pieces could be used in either dioramas or battle damaged customs.

    No, I mean the Endo was being sold whole...just the guns were pulled out of the box and being sold separately. The endo was going for almost the full cost of the boxed figure with the guns - really thought it was kinda dumb.
