Well after many months of searching for this and constant disappointments, my friend Dan comes through BIG and scores me this super hard to find statue that is completely kick ass.

Some people don't like it... but it's just a gorgeous piece with some really slick paint apps. Here's some pics I took this evening in the studio... enjoy!

Wow, That is cool.
Do you know when this piece was released? The paintwork on the Pred looks very similar to the albino from BDE, right down to the style of the tatttoos...

Nice grab.

Thanks everyone for your compliments on the photos... it's been awhile since I've had time to set up the ol' lights and snap some shots, so it was fun to photograph such a kick ass piece.

Sandy - The piece was announced November 2004 and was released exclusively at the Fewture Store located in Japan in mid-spring 2005. You can grab additional details in my little review I posted at www.predatorstuff.com/200...ure-japan/

That's actually a recast of the original kit... this statue was a pre-paint limited to 500 numbered units. About 6 months ago it started popping up everywhere as a recast... some bad, some good. I wrote an article about this piece getting recast at www.predatorstuff.com/200...s-are-out/

Also, the pic on the frontier site is from a guy on eBay who is trying to sell recasts as originals... He has a series of the photos on his auction pages. The pic is of an original, but it's not what you end up getting.

It has some very cool ideas in it. I think I might have to experiment with the ribbed dreads idea. I have some silicone sitting around waiting to be used for molding something.

I think those ribbed dreads are what a predalien should have

You could be able to find one on ebay, ever now and then. I could be wrong but They run about $250.00 US, they can go for more....
