NECA Style 7" Predator Dutch's Team Figures By DJblizzard
Movies: Jay Cochran - 2013.05.19
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of NECA style 7" figures of Dutch's team from the original Predator movie. These customs were done by DJblizzard.

Here is how he describes the making of them.

"The Dutch figures recently released by NECA blew me away...so much so, that I desperately wished they would make the rest of his team. So, when word got out that they would not be making them, I decided that I wanted to have a set one way or another - even if it meant making them myself.

I started with Dillon, using the NECA Apollo Creed and a Jungle Patrol Dutch with some assorted parts. Once Dillon was finished, I was so happy with how he turned out that I was even more inspired to make the rest of the guys. Next came Billy, then Poncho, and before I knew it I had put them all together.

These are made using all NECA parts from assorted figures, a couple of Mattel WWE parts, and accessories from wherever I could find them.

I still need to detail and add parts, such as Hawkins' backpack and Billy's webgear, but I wanted to share where they were. I'm happy with how they turned out, and I'm content with them until maybe film accurate head sculpts become readily available, at which point I'd swap them out.

This was an absolute blast of a project, and I highly recommend that if you want a full team to fight your NECA Predators, go ahead and give it a shot!

For the heads:

Billy - WWE Mattel John Morrison
Blain - WWE Mattel Kane
Dillon - NECA Apollo Creed
Mac - WWE Mattel Ezekiel Jackson
Hawkins - NECA Prometheus David 8
Poncho - NECA T-1000 "

PREDATOR - PONCHO Updates A few quick updates to Poncho. I found him a more film-accurate vest (from a Stargate Atlantis Col. Sheppard figure). I also modified the T-1000 head I originally used, to get the likeness a little closer: I sanded down his chin and jaw line to better match the shape of ... read more

Belmont - I'll definitely cue up Long Tall Sally for the video...I also advise listening to that and the Predator theme while looking at the pics, it really heightens the experience
