It's been a long while since I made a custom minifig, but when watching Predator last week (again).
I decided that the Predator needed a descent minfig version and an update from the lame one I did some time ago. What was I thinking...
So I made a new one...

Made a new and hopefully better head

Anyway, I'm mush happier with the result this time. It's been a while that I made a custom I really want to keep myself, and not give away or sell.

Here are some more pictures:

And a reference picture.

But, as can be seen in Predator 2 and the AVP Movies, at the end,  a Predator never seems to be alone...

But his companions still need some finishing up. From left to right Scar Predator from AVP. Predtor 2, Predator 1, Elder Predator from Predator 2 & a first tryout

And eventualy, the Predator also needs to fight some aliens from time to time...

And a box.

Ha! Nicely done!  :classic:  :thumbup:
I always enjoy seeing new sculptured pieces and details! Especially, if they're so well done. )  :classic:
I'm not a big fan of those Predator, or, Alien vs Predator movies, but the minifig itself is really a good one, again. )

Oh man, that is a great predator helmet.  I forgot how old that movie really is.  I want to see it again.

Great job, that really is spot on, I couldn't see TLG doing much better.

Amazing molding on the helmet and just downright creepy detail on the torso and limbs. :oh:  I think you captured this critter perfectly. :thumbup:

Keep up the good work!

The helmet and predator, just like the alien, are all incredible!
You managed to improve your first version quite a bit.
Very well done indeed and great thanks for sharing this with us.

It's very nice to see that you don't stop working on a project once the first version is finished, but keep trying to improve your designs :thumbup:  I remember when you posted the first Predator, and it was just amazing at the time; now you made an even more realistic version, and not just one, but one for (almost) every Predator know through the movies :wub:

Of course, my favorite is the Wolf Predtaor from AVP: Requiem, both for the name (based on the character of Winston Wolf from Pulp Fiction) and the attitude/combat style: do you plan on making him, too? :classic:

I can't decide which one is better, the alien or the predator... :wub: Both are pure beauties!
Really nice job with these customs!

Thanks for the comments.
I was amazed myself how well the alien turned out, since I made it real quick, but I wanted to keep the focus on the Predator, since that is my favorite character.  :tongue:
Here's a pic of the alien body construction.

I'm makng several more at this time, you always need more badies, to make the goodies look better.

@ LuxorV, I did a Predator, resembling the one from AVP 2 (no pic, sorry) but will eventually do a new one. Now I would like to improve my Predator 2 first and make a Dutsh Shaefer (Arnie in Predator 1)

I like it, it's not quite as slanted as the first.  Honestly, I though tthe first one was great, this is just like a refinment of a good job.

Bobskink good sir, My heartiest compliments to you regarding your Alien and Predator figures.  They are top-notch work, and beautiful to look at.  I'd love to see your take on a Colonial Marine to complete the trifecta of carnage.  On a side note, if you were to construct a mold of your Alien head, body and tail apparatus, I would be interested in purchasing a couple dozen, and I am sure others would be as well.

Great job again on these, Bobskink. The box is superb as the nice impulse-size accessories really add to the theme :thumbup:

Now, if only I could get my hands on one of these... :wub:

Very nice work on the figures, you certainly have some sculpting skills! Did you paint the details on the minifigure or did you use decals? The box is awesome BTW  :thumbup:

Yes, I love Predators! Can't wait for the new film!

Anyway, amazing custom. I wish I was good enough to do stuff like this, but for now, I'm a pureist.
