The idea for this Predator came from seeing an episode of National Geographic that was elaborating on a "Blue Ringed Octopus". When I saw the color scheme on the octopus, I knew it would make a great idea for a Predator skin pattern. The octopus has yellowish brown rings with dark brown centers, and a vanilla skin color. When the octopus is enraged, or aggressive and attacks its prey, its rings light up an iridescent blue, similar to a light saber.
I purchased a broken Snake Predator figure, fixed his broken parts, swapped his dreads for a P1's dreads, added an elbow blade to his left gauntlet, repainted, and this is the final product. I know the eyes are hard to see in the photos, but they are there. They are tucked pretty far up under his brow.
