Predator Minimates

Recommended Posts

 

Meh. 😕  really wanted to like this but the trailer is generic and blah as you can get. Kids and "Scientist" Olivia Munn don't give me a lot of hope.

It's almost like they don't realize that the only reason the ONLY good Predator movie worked was because it was the Predator versus a bunch of absolute badasses that in any other movie would have been unstoppable and yet this crazy hunter alien was able to take them out.

Predator 2 was okay because it was at the height of Danny Glover's "action" career, but even it was a pale imitation to the original which really set the tone.

Everything else has sucked.

This looks to continue that trend. It looks like an okay "alien" movie, but doesn't feel like the Predator at all. It's such a shame that this really unique, absolutely awesome creature has been continually watered down in so many bad movies. I guess there's no reviving it at this point. Once Dr. Olivia Munn and the Hardy Boys are fighting the Predator, it's pretty much past the point of no return... Then again it's kinda been that way ever since the "spear" scene.

Shane Black has a solid track record of writing/directing quality films, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Shane Black is the only reason I'd expect think this movie might possibly be decent. The trailer definitely didn't hook me.

So now that we have a glimpse at the new Predator, how long before they lift the embargo on the reveal of merchandise?  Beyond the box set, we don’t know of any plans yet.  Was there a TRU wave planned?  Will it make it out somewhere?

Only a box was planned, iirc. Mixed waves are on pause until after the movie.

I hope we get all the cool characters but I suppose DST will still be able to follow up on in-demand characters in the mixed assortments.

NECA showed off their figure for The Predator and they are calling it the Fugitive Predator. Im assuming that's what DST will call it. I guess we'll see them at SDCC?

I hope we get a masked head for it as well.

Unless there's a good possibility for a followup box set or inclusion into a future legacy assortment, I'm all for including masked heads.

Or they could do five variants like the other Predators.

The release date for The Predator is getting pushed back about a month:

I doubt it will affect any merchandising.

Or not.

When is this boxed set due out again? With an absence of Marvel Animated and Infinity War Series 2 at Walgreens I'm getting itchy for new 'mates.

Are these coming near the film release in two weeks?

We still have no clue what these look like yet, not sure why the secrecy.

“The first Predator Minimates box set revealed! Casey Bracket, Quinn McKenna, Rory McKenna and Fugitive Predator make up the four-pack, coming this winter to a comic shop near you.”

Not what I was expecting. Hopefully this means another box set with the other Predator, Traeger (Brown),  Keyes (Busey) and Cole (Key).  Or any of the other ‘Looneys.’  Can’t wait for next weekend.

I'm going to have to be very excited about the movie to pay $25 for that set.

At the moment, I'm wishing they'd just offered a 4-pack rounding out the remaining 'mates from Predators. Gimme Stans, Mombasa, the Tracker Predator and the captive classic Predator.

I get that DST wants to spread things out and do more multipacks from the movie but this is a really boring pack. 

Hope the movie is good and it sells well enough that we get another pack.

A yay shot often helps. What kind of accessories are we getting that aren't already pictured?

There has to be another set, the Ultimate Predator(?) and the hounds seem to good to pass on. Stirling K. Brown's character interests me so him as well. Im hoping for at least an unmasked head for the Fugitive Predator.

Film reviews are coming in. From what I've read so far, this is the Thor: Ragnarok of the franchise.
