Fans to Hunt Down Predator Figures, Statues
October 28, 2004
One of the seminal science fiction films of all time - Predator - is making its way to retailers' shelves soon, in the form of a beautiful vinyl figure kit and an assortment of mini-figures, which will be available exclusively in North America through Diamond Comic Distributors!
When it was first released in 1987, Predator immediately became a hit and spawned an equally successful sequel, Predator 2. The two films earned nearly $100 million during their initial runs and propelled the franchise to legendary status. This year, Alien vs. Predator grossed $80 million - more than any previous Predator movie - showing that interest in the license remains high. The Predator Special Edition DVD was also recently released to considerable accolades, further raising awareness of the character, and making these releases hot commodities.
The products below are imported from Japan and are some of the most highly detailed likenesses of the Predator to ever be released in North America:
• Predator 2 Mini-Figure Assortment: These hyper-detailed, 4" tall chimasuta ("little statues") come from the master craftsmen of one of Tokyo's finest toy makers, Kotobukiya! There are five basic chimasuta to collect, or you can really join the hunt to collect all 14 toys (including stealth/camouflage versions and rare secret characters)! These figures, sculpted by Keiji Iwakura, have never before been available outside of Japan and come on blister card packaging, making it easier to get the figures you want!
• Predator 2 Deluxe Vinyl Figure Kit: From the creator of the popular Star Wars vinyl figure kits, Kotobukiya, comes this incredibly detailed 1/6th scale kit replicating the titular alien baddie from Predator 2! Sculpted by Keiji Iwakura and measuring 12" tall, the Predator 2 Vinyl Figure Kit is comprised of 9 pieces, and can be assembled in seconds without glue or modeling experience. And, bonus parts are included to display your Predator with or without its signature helmet/mask! This figure comes in window box packaging
