1:6 Hot Toys Predator

I've never watched Predator, but to paraphrase Arnold in the movie, if it looks frickin' cool, buy it.

When I started collect 1:6 figures in '06, Hot Toys' Predator products sure were head turners, but I was into the hobby a bit to late to be able to snag a decent figure out of their various offerings.

I recall reading collectors finding them Predators a bitch/or really fun to put together, as well as comments about the head being disproportionate. This toy doesn't require assembly but I can't comment on the head as I know f@#$ all about how it looked in the movie.

I've always liked the Predator's design of dreadlocked warrior who had a facial accident and the sculpt here doesn't disappoint. He so fugly that it's hard to take your eyes off him.

He comes with open/closed left and right hands, a gripping right hand, mask, open/closed mandibles, medical pack (not pictured here) and a base.

I haven't been thrilled by a Hot Toys figure for a while. I'm glad this figure came along.

The only other Predator-related figure I have is a much more alluring one.
