The Predator Strikes Back

Whilst roaming around some of the forums I'm a member off I was stoked to find this posting "diavolo from Italia, the first Preadator in my country 5th month of work... all made by meself (except skin and helmet).... and now he lives..." by Diavolobianco. He's done an incredible job on the costume and had the forum in somewhat of a stir with his ingenious use of materials for the armour, plastic waste buckets of all things.

A close up of the costume and the helmet Diavolo used, my Mysteria Models AVP Scar Predator helmet produced as a garage kit and limited cold cast metal replica for the cinema release of AVP Aliens vs Predator the movie

Slated for a UK January 2008 release the clock is ticking, Here's one of NECA's toys to tie in with the release of AVP-r, the Alien Predator Hybrid creature, but here's what im really waiting for "Alien vs. Predator: Survival of the Fittest" ADI opens its doors to unveil the secrets of the creature design process behind two of the most frightening characters ever! From conception to fabrication and finishing, follow their talented crew in-studio and on location through this captivating book and accompanying creature FX DVD....hubba hubba and a bucket of popcorn!!

Broody Bats!! and finally for this months low down, The Dark Knight returns in this sculptural rendition following the incredible comic artwork of Alex Ross. This was sculpted a couple of years ago for Mysteria Models but due to other work commitments never seen an official release. Here's a cold cast bronze I did a few months back.
