A long time ago, McFarlane released three Predator figures from the Alien Vs Predator film. These figures were very inaccurate and fragile, but have become very sought after by fans. I decided to take the liberty of updating my McFarlane Elder Predator. I repainted his armor by giving it a black wash, then dry brushing it in gunmetal. I also removed the 'chopper' blades. I painted the small bumps on his face a light grey color. That is basically it, a simple yet effective couple of mods. As with my Celtic and Scar, I didn't touch the skin or netting; McFarlane does a good job at those.

Great improvements! The figure looks waaaaay more accurate.

Thanks man. I tried to make them look better, the sculpts are good, they just look gawdy with all that big crap on them.

Great job. I'd already taken the big blades off mine but your repaint really makes the sculpt pop.
Referring back to your scar and celtic predator customs recently. I've started on the same custom you did with those because it turned out so good. I'm going one step further and removing the dreadlocks and replacing them with the dreadlocks from a couple of Neca Wolf Predator figures I have in the fodder bin. Thank you again for the great work and inspiration. I'll try to get some pics up of my customs soon. It'll be a few weeks work.

Oh its no problem man. Do you have facebook ? Hit me up on there, either search Wayne Hebb or CYCLONE_06's Customs & Artwork by the way, that wolf... is he whole, or in parts, or what ? I'd love to have some wolf parts.

I've got two they're essentially whole with the dreads missing. One of them has the blades missing.
