The holidays came early to the Dread Central offices when Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys sent over their Elder Predator Movie Masterpiece Series Sixth Scale Figure for us to comb over.
First and foremost one thing was immediately apparent… this is not your standard action figure despite its multiple points of articulation which are there only to afford you, the collector, the ability to pose this bad boy to your liking. Each and every figure is hand-cast, assembled, and dressed by the manufacturer.
Given the price tag of $224.99, we don’t expect you’ll be handing this over to junior to throw around with reckless abandon. No, this is a piece purely meant for display.
Standing about 14″ tall, the Elder Predator is one of the single most stunningly detailed pieces we’ve seen in some time, and it is completely screen accurate as seen in 1990’s Predator 2. It’s all here down to the most minute of details. The old time gun, the dreadlock clip, the space machete, and oh those glorious signature retractable claws. The figure comes with interchangeable hands that can be swapped out easily so you can decide which bits of weaponry you want your Predator to be brandishing, if any at all. From top to bottom this baby is gorgeous.
If there’s anything negative to say about it, it’s that getting a lot of the accessories on this bad boy is a bit nerve-wracking as they’re delicate as they come. Take the necklaces, for example; they’re strung with the thinnest of strings that feel as if they’d just snap if the wrong amount of tension or pressure is applied accidentally. My best advice here is DO NOT dress this thing on your own. Consult the manual as it illustrates the easiest way to get everything on and off.
The bottom line is this… if you’re a Predator fan or a collector, this is something you’ll not just want… it’s something you will NEED!
If you have the scratch, do yourself a favor and order this one NOW! It’s totally worth the price tag! Highly endorsed and recommended!
