but then to be fair the T800 is around three times the price
not a fan of predators (or aliens) and not too keen on neca's stuff either as anything of theirs I've seen up close always seems more toy like to me but although slightly smaller Hot Toys have released plenty of Pred's and then theres also quite a few very good quality statues out there from the likes of sideshow
I've got the open mouthed version and he is awesome!!! there are a few issues and the quality isn't as good as hot toys, but I wouldn't change him! If you're after a Classic Pred though, there is a new one coming out soon from Hot Toys! He has a battle damaged mask though and is missing the skull trophies around his body and he is the Classic Pred from the Predators film.
I have my masked pred stood next to my t800. The t800 is in another league but or the money the pred is great, think I paid about 53 for mine after a bit of money off.
The only issue with the pred is that it is not a true 1/4 as it is the same size as the t800. If it were true 1/4 it would be taller than Arnie.
There was one in the Wellington (Shropshire) cash converters for £80, but they wouldn't mailorder it. I was going to get my folks to pick it up for me, but decided against it since I would rather wait for something nearer Enterbay standard.
If Sideshow's 1/4 scale premium formats don't appeal to you Hot Toys just announced that they will be doing predators in 1/4 scale so expect some more very good quality figures to keep you going
After the release of the Classic Predator Collectible Figure recently, we have received positive response from the market! But we guess that fans wont be just satisfying with the 1/6th scale, right?
We are going to announce this great news now - we are bringing to fans not only the 1/6th scale, but also the 1/4th scale collectible figures of the Predator movie series - Predator, Predator 2, Predators, Alien vs. Predator (AVP) and Aliens vs Predator Requiem (AVPR)!
It will be surely an enhancing of the details and quality level! And the mask and some of the body armors will be made by die-casting!
Moreover, we will be bringing the collectible of Dutch featuring our beloved actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1/4th scale too! Fans, please stay tuned!
