Predator Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:14739  
Name:Predator
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Predator
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:May 17, 2009
Base Figure:Microman AvP Elder Predator
Height:3.75 inches
When a Microman Predator figure arrived in the mail from an a website seller with a shattered knee and arm, I decided to both repair the toy, and make it into something new.

After supergluing the two fractured joints (successfully too - the figure is super sturdy, and still articulated), began the following process of conversion from an AvP movie predator, to the masked, bronzed armor version:

-Removed partial predator mask from figures shoulder
-Reduced the size of the wrist blades, super glued them in place
-Affixed the mini-faceplate to the figures head, sculpted the rest of the mask around it
-Painted the dreadlocks black with silver holder
-Painted all armor and weapons black, then dry brushed on gunmetal Gray
-Painted all armor and accessories with Citadel "Flesh Wash", my standby rust-effect paint.
-Detailing with Black Citadel paint, and Vallejo Black Wash
-Sealed with Vallejo Matte finish varnish

-Figure base-stand was a DC Direct figure base, covered with hobby plaster. After it dried, I sanded it, painted it black, and dry brushed it with 3 different shades of blue-gray.
-Sealed the base with Krazyglue-superglue, then a spray sealant coat of Citadel Matte finish.

The 3rd image also shows the repainted 3.75" Hot Toys Warrior ALIEN snap kit I have along side my predator.

Heh, nope. All Microman figures (to my knowledge) are roughly GI Joe-sized, as this one is.

I thought it was 10 inches

whoa I thought that was six inch when I first saw this, amazing work man!

Heyya, thanks for your comment. I noticed that other microman figures (I.e: Material force figures) I've had are indeed terrible for limbs popping off.
For whatever reason, this figure is just fine. It can be played with fairly roughly, and it's limbs never pop off. The only exception was the head on a single peg. I just super-glued it down, as it was ball-socket jointed at the neck base anyhow.

This is SICK! Did you do anything to help the figure stay together better? I love Microman figures, but they have a tendency to fall apart and not hold a pose.

Thanks Cerebus, I'm glad you like it. I only have a passing familiarity with the films, but I really enjoyed the PREDATOR Darkhorse comics put out in the 1990s.

Well done blayne. I'm a huge Predator fan.
