Predator Minimates

Recommended Posts

Unrelated: I'm still trying to find a Hawkins. He never shows up on Ebay as a single. I was able to find the others in bags at a local store, with only 2-3 dupes. I thought it would be "fun" to buy them old-school style but now I'm cranky and missing my Shane Black figure.

I'm still trying to track down Poncho and Anna.

I still need to dremel down the riser inside my Hawkins' hat, so it sits better on his head.

With Briefing Dutch & Dillon, I can't really think of too many more P1 minis to be made... maybe:

  • Plasma Casting Cloaked Predator and "Battle Damaged" Blain (gruesome)
  • "Battle Damaged" Dillon (also delightfully gruesome)
  • Thermal variants of other team members
  • "Final Battle" Billy

I think Predator is pretty much done. At least for me it is.

I'd really like to see the other two movies finished alongside the new movie.

Predator 2 - Danny and Leona to complete the cop team, King Willie would be awesome but not before the last two Lost Tribe.

Predators - Stans (Walton Goggins) and Mombasa (Mahershala Ali)

Mix these with some Kenner Predators or in the new movie series and I'd be a happy camper.

I'm still waiting on those Minimates skinned bodies and skull/spine accessories!

That would be pretty awesome.

The one Predator Minimate I really wish DST would offer is the chopper pilot played by the late Kevin Peter Hall, the man who also played the Predator. If they could figure out a way to sneak him into an assortment (maybe with a chopper!) that'd be super.

And this! A chopper would be cool, plus the Huey has featured in many things, good for reuse. You could probably squeeze in the General too.

We still need,: Tracker Predator, "Classic" Captive Predator, Masked Berserker Predator, and the River Ghost. That's one each to pair with the humans, and an additional 2-pack. If they really wanted to stretch it, they could add: Cloaked Tracker, Damaged Hound.

I am thinking the silhouettes look like Stirling K Brown, Olivia Munn, and 2 Predators. Just throwing it out there.

Trying to decide if the box set from comic stores will be necessary (like the Marvel movie waves lately with some exclusive characters) or totally redundant like the Beetlejuice box set (where everything was available at TRU).   Any hints?

Hey, lately I've been working on a custom Caryn from the Deadliest of the Species comics. I've been using Shanna the She-Devil as the core base, as well as for the face, but I really just don't think the aggression matches Caryn's characterization in the comics. Anyone know of good fearful or in-awe expressions from female Minimates, in the "normal" flesh tone? This is what it's looking like currently (might switch out the torso print), with the Shanna face, as well as the Predator mask I've been going with:

Maybe we could also squeeze in a dropship, one that has a flaming motorcycle that shoots out the back and is piloted by a tiger.

Seriously, good lists, YB.
