SCAR PREDATOR (Hybrid Metal Figuration #020) from HEROCROSS On Pre-Order Now
Now, I would assume that folks reading my blog regularly would know of and recognize "Predator" from all the Hollywood feature films and action figures(ish) … yes, the imagery is coursing thru your mindscape now, isn't it? … Now picture a "Child Predator"!
While technically this Predator shown here is NOT a youngling, but of a Super-Deformed designed character, and he looks splendid! We last saw the unpainted prototype on display at the 2014 Toy Soul in Hong Kong late last year (alongside "Alien"!) … And if he is similar to the Darth Vader and Optimus Prime I have in my collection (expect to see a showcase review on this blog real soon), then this is indeed a piece to look forward to, IMHO.
Designed and produced by HEROCROSS, the Hybrid Metal Figuration #020 Scar Predator is licensed by 20th Century Fox, and features a 14cm tall action figure with 20 points of articulation, weighing 250grams.
Suggested Retail Price is US$102 (HK$798), currently on pre-order now at the HEROCROSS website (where you can enjoy a 10% discount). Estimated Shipping Date is scheduled for 2nd quarter of 2015.
