The TRIP:
Took a trip today to the northern hills of Orange county, invited by Larry Kidd to come and check out his collection of pieces and props from various films.

I saw from his site he was an awesome kit builder and his skills are insane in detailing. really beautiful work, award winning for some of his kits.
I was excited to head up and bring some of my predator stuff for him to see and give me some feedback and ideas on.

THE COLLECTION:
I stepped into the most incredible collection you could Imagine,
THE Original pieces of steve wang the ones that we float around and use as ref ...HE HAS THEM

Screen used pieces from predator 2 and never before seen items that for a predator fan would melt your brain.

ALien Queens, ALien Warriors, Full size Endos. it was awsome hanging out with someone who is just as nuts about this stuff as i am.
I took a few awesome pics i'll get them posted ASAP, but as usual they don't do it justice. Plus it will give an excuse for heading back up there

I wanted to thank larry and his family for opening their home to me and showing me a great time. the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

I'll get those pics posted soon
but if you can't wait check out just some of his works and collection.
The following images are from the personal collection of larry kid.

The PREDATORS:
Speechless
The Net gun(thanks Larry

The Kits

Xenomorphus Rex iwanted to see that thing so bad, it's the baddest

The Warrior and Queen:

IT doesn't get much better than steve wang. i tried downloading the images i took, but image resoultion needs to be reduced. here are just a few again big thanks to larry for being kool about inviting me up

OK, here is a taste of what i was witness to... does anyone need to know who made this??
Here it is the one
if you check the cover of fangoria issue # 37 i believe (i lost my copy DAMN!!!) you will see this piece

Here is a close up of larrys' work. What can you say about that level of detail that he puts into his work, here is a person who knows what a hunter should look like

SWEEEEETTTTT!!!! Man this whole room was full of hunters and killers. I have this image on my desktop along with the wang pieces. Larry I would like to line up all your pred model kits and take a good pic of them but i lost count after 20...sorry....

Would you hang out here ALL your life this was the left side of room

This was the right side . The images of the Wang predators I'm compositing into one image. I doesn't get much better than this.

Man, the detail of all the veins inside the mouth area alone makes me weep with joy, not even mentioning the paint job! That is some of the best paint work I've ever seen on a mask!

WoW Didnt realize they were kits you sell. Do you sell them as "kits" or only completed? Also do you have size and price on those 2 pieces, or does price vary? May I request a price quote sent to me at MiSTRFiNGA@MiSTRFiNGA.com ? Thanks!

That top half pred 1 torso is a 4ft predator 1 vinyl kit. Same as the 5ft pred 2 kit.

All great items but can be a bit costly with the old $'s and £'s.

But at the end of the day its Predator

Those thai kits are nice and hell yeah they run $$. I think LK also did some resculpting on the face, to make it more accurate.

The torso is a pretty big solid resin piece.
It's the top half of a kit produced in Thailand.
I didn't get around to doing the bottom half yet!!
Looks cool as a bust though.Like Frank said it's about
4ft tall with the legs.
The other one is the "Big Time"kit. 1/3 scale.
About 25inches tall.
Yeah, I did alot of resculpting on head of the 5ft Pred2 kit.
That's from Thailand as well and is solid resin. About 200lbs!
That full face pic that Andrew posted looks Terrible!!
Sorry but I don't sell anything. Check Gremlynz if you're
looking to buy one of those kits.I think they make them in fiberglass now and are probably not as good as the originals.
Still cool though!
