Re: HOT TOYS Predator 2


I love Hot Toys - They make great figures and they like to experiment. I think the only thing that's damaging their reputation at the moment is the occasional bad paint job or poorer head sculpt (like Hudson). A lot of times this is due to licensing issues but a lot of people especially at OSW think it's a defect in the Hot Toys' artists' abilities.

Also, some people are getting frustrated with their marketing policies - like releasing robocop 3 with just gun arm, and then again with gun arm and flight pack. Or making a better Ripley sculpt once most people have bought the regular figure. But if they keep giving us awesome figures (Predtor 2 man!!!!) then who the fudge gives a fudge.

Re: HOT TOYS Predator 2


Ht Toys has recruited some Korean artist to handle the head sculpt. New Rambo III and Prison Break figure were done by Yuli and JC Hong. So I think HT 's head sculpt quality will become much better latter on.

Re: HOT TOYS Predator 2


This is another great announcement and hopefully figures from the first Predator film will eventually follow. Because most of their licenses aren't ones I care enough about to want any figures from I so far only have 1 HT figure (Ripley is en route as I type this) but I think HT are a great company and possibly the most innovative in the 1/6 world at present as they show little fear about attempting never before done items such as ED-209,the Power Loader and the certain to follow Alien Queen. As impressive as their current list of licenses is I'd love it if HT got the chance to play in the SW universe beyond those nesting doll things that they already make. It's almost scary to consider what they would come up with,

SSC "Armor is difficult"

HT "1/6 scale AT-AT? Piece of cake!. Have a fully articulated furry Chewbacca that doesn't look like crap while you wait" emoticon

I have to admit I have a feeling that the HT Darth Vader bobble head (the one in the TIE fighter) mind end up 1/6 scale (just the head, of course). It'd be great for any kit bashers.

Re: HOT TOYS Predator 2


yeah, dutch and his team would be immense. the only problem is arnie not giving hot toys the license to do his face. and if hot toys tried to work around it by doing a sculpt that only resembled him, they would be massively criticized again, like they were for the aliens figures (which again wasn't poor sculpting, just working-around-licenses sculpting).

so it could hurt them if they do it. but then who knows, the guvnor might allow hot toys to use his face. that would be christmas come early for a lot of people i think.

Sorry my mistake. Thought this was all a Hot Toys ad, but it was a Blister ad and you are quite right it's Funko!

Not only that it looks like a mock up using an actual prop [sign in to see URL] well!

I totally agree. That would be superb. Even more so than Arnie, I would freaking LOVE a Billy model. emoticon emoticon

That could be INCREDIBLE!
