This Predator was created to represent my name... CYCLONE... but in Predator form. The idea behind him was that he would be an Ancient, one of the original Predators that developed the honor system, and rules of the hunt.

He did most of his hunting in ancient china mostly using bladed weapons in favor of the shoulder cannon, due to it being more challenging and fair to the less technological prey.

During one of his hunts, he came about a demon (Mandarin Spawn) that was killing all of his formidable prey using powers that were unknown to him, as well as his prey. He stalked the demon, observing it's moves, techniques, and powers. He finally decided to challenge the Demon one on one, hand to hand...

After claiming his trophy, he kept some of the demon's armor and weapons as a sign of respect and honor.

The base figure was a NECA Stalker Predator. The head is from a NECA Elder Predator. The armor is from a classic Predator, with parts from a Mandarin Spawn figure. A lot of dremmeling and cutting had to be done to get the armor to fit on his right arm, forearm, and legs. The tunic, gun, and shield are removable.

Patterns for the skin were based on a photograph of a phoenix bird I found online. This served as the main reference and idea behind the character.

Thanks a lot guys for the support. This guy really stands out. Looks like royalty, which is what I was going for. Can't be on the council of Ancients that decides the hunting codes and not look bad ass right ? Ha ha.

I'm loving the concept of a Predator/Spawn crossover!
The backstory is very cool! I love the paint job on this amazing custom! You did an incredible job of adding Mandarin Spawn's gear on the Predator!

You have no idea the hours I spent dremmeling the parts to fit on the pred, heat shaping, etc... In the end it was worth it however.
