1/18 Scale Predator Figure By Damon Koopmann
Movies: Jay Cochran - 2008.10.26
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 1/18 Scale Predator figure by bravo5.

Here is how bravo5 describes the making of this figure:

"I've been working on this one for a while. Since there were no true 1/18 scale Predator figures (the Hot Toys Snap Kits were closer to 1/20) I decided to make my own. The arms, torso and upper legs are from a GI Joe 25th Anniversary Nemesis Immortal figure and the Predator heads, torso and lower legs and backpack come from the McFarlane series 2 Diorama figures and the gauntlets, hands and shoulder gun come from the Hot Toys Snap Kits. It has a ball jointed torso, feet, hips, wrists, shoulders, elbows, basic joints at the knees and the shoulder cannon rotates side to side and moves up and down to simulate the stored and firing positions. The head is something new I tinkered with. Since I wanted a masked and unmasked predator, the heads have a metal ball and inside the neck area is a magnet. So you can interchange the heads and still maintain a ball joint. Comments are appreciated. I included a 4" Forces of valor German Soldier next to the predator to show the size difference. The Predator standsd at about 4.5 inches tall. The German figure is on a stand and you can still see the Predator towers over him. Enjoy."

Very cool work and parts choices for your Pred. I signed up for this forum just so I could comment on your work. That plus the fact that 3 of my Preds are getting some free looks at the expense of the thread you started.

Nice shots. Another cool thing to try is articulating the McFarlane ALIEN. I tried it once- turned out so so. Here are some shots from the "how to" I did on making Preds . . . [img] (link) [img] (link)

Thanks, Bravo (and I certainly didn't mean to hijack your thread either. It just really nice to see someone else take advantage of the statue Preds and articulate them). Most were made from a combo- Ven Max legs, Road Pig upper body. The rest is the McFarlane statue. Also I made one using the w... read more

Fantastic looking. A friend of mine did the same thing a few years back using ARAH GIJoe parts for the base. Here's a recent one from him . . . [url=" (link) [url=" (link) Here's a look at one of the ones I did . . . [img] (link) Again, great work on yours.
