From the 1987 Sci-Fi film, Predator, we were introduced to the technologically advanced extraterrestrial life who visited Earth regularly as a hunting ground.
More than 20 years later, fans of the Predator franchise finally get to own a piece of this awesome creature as a 1/6 scale figure.
In this 1/6 scale rendition of the supreme hunter simply known as Predator from the movie that started it all, Hot Toys has hit a home run with an extremely well-made figure that is down-right awesome.
While the Predator does not come with as many accessories as Hot Toys’ previous Predators from the “Alien Vs Predator” series, it still packed quite a punch with whatever accessories it did come with. The standard Predator weapons are still present. This includes its Spear, Shuriken and the trademark Shoulder Cannon.
Instead of a regular figure stand, Hot Toys threw in a more elaborate diorama-type base that features a forest environment.
The head sculpt of the Predator is awesome. The details are fantastic.
The helmet is well-sculpted and on its own, is among one of the best that Hot Toys has delivered so far. However, it does not fit well onto the head sculpt of the Predator. This could be due to a miscalculation of the helmet’s size vis-à-vis the Predator’s head sculpt. Thus, in terms of design, the helmet is quite a disappointment.
This is a very well-made figure.
With the exception of the issue with the helmet design, which I mentioned above, I have no other complaints about this figure.
In my opinion, the Hot Toys Predator figure easily garners a high rating of 4.5 out of 5 (4.5/5, 90%).
