Always respect your Elder Predator

AVP Predator

They may have the face of a Japanese horror movie vagina, but…Well it is actually true so let’s just leave it at that. By now, the Predator has pretty much cemented its role in the history of pop culture.

Ruthless, unrelenting and having played far too much Mortal Kombat, the Predator is still a killer with a code. And most likely the life expectancy of a hummingbird, judging by the fact that they hunt the deadliest game in the galaxy.

Still, some Predators actually manage to survive a few killer safaris, and actually become recognised as Elders of their respective Yautja clans. Also, they have bitchin’ red cloaks, so you know just how boss they really are.

In other words, I think my toy shelf needs a leader:

In Alien vs. Predator, the crossover movie between the dangerous aliens and predators, the human protagonist Alexa “Lex” Woods has impressed the predators when she managed to defeat an alien and assist in killing the Alien Queen with Scar.

In the end, Elder Predator revealed his presence and presented Lex with a Combi-Stick as a sign of respect and recognition of her skills as a warrior!

The movie-accurate 1/6th scale Elder Predator collectible figure is specially crafted based on his image in the film, featuring a newly developed head sculpt with detailed likeness, blue colored deadlocks with distinctive pattern and tribal accessories, the character’s iconic red cape, weapons and accessories.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
