Part II of Hot Toys MMS90 Movie Masterpiece Series 1/6 scale 14-inch Predator from the first Predator movie featuring realistic based 1/6 scale (14-inch/35cm tall) Predator with over 24 points of articulations and highly detailed armor, highly detailed medical kit and figure including newly developed body, chest, and arms plus 3 interchangeable hands. The Predator wears a real fabric net body suit with bone trophies and comes with interchangeable open and closed mandibles, articulated shoulder cannon, extendable wrist blades, wrist computer and removable mask with light-up laser ( battery operated) and a Jungle-themed display base. Some of the features have already been covered in the previous post (link here)
This post will cover the highly anticipated light-up Predator mask. A Predator's hunting helmet (also called Bio Mask) increases its ability to see in a variety of spectrums, ranging from the low infrared to the high ultraviolet, and also filters the ambient heat from the area, allowing them to see things with greater clarity and detail. Housed within the helmet is a targeting and tracking system for the shoulder-mounted energy weapon or plasma casters. Incorporated to finalize the shot is a lock-on system. As the quarry is decided upon, the designator will zoom a triangle in on the prey from the HUD (Head-up Display), which will flash and turn solid red, then fire.

Here's the Predator mask unplugged. You can see the wires and the white connector that goes into the back armor. I liked that the mask has some battle damage or scars from previous battles. The shoulder cannon or plasma caster is in the stand-by or passive mode.
Connector goes to the back and plugs into the back armor

And the "on/off" switch for the batteries, located at the side. Everything looks seamless and there are no extra protrusions - nicely done by Hot Toys

Close-up of the Predator's light-up mask with plasma caster in firing mode. The triangular laser rangefinder is used to assist in aiming the shot.
Another look at his bone trophies which were covered in the previous post
1/6 scale 14-inch Predator wrist blades which are a common melee weapon for most Predators
The Predator alien wrist blades extend and retract from his right wristband.
Besides his shoulder armor, the Predator also has plate armor over other parts of his body
He also wears a loin cloth like Tarzan
Hot Toys Predator wrist computer
Each Predator carries a self-destruct device mounted on their wrist computer. Once activated this device begins a relatively short countdown. Red LEDs of Predator numerals on the Predator's gauntlet serve as a warning that the bomb is about to explode. The detonation of the bomb results in a small nuclear-like explosion which destroys an area equivalent to 300 city blocks.
Here's another look at his back armor with the medicomp or medical kit stored in his left rear top (covered in the previous post) plus his trademark long, hair-like appendages on his head.
A closer look at the plasma caster, the shoulder-mounted energy weapon. Unlike the Scar Predator whose plasma caster is mounted at the rear, this first Predator alien's cannon is mounted at the front.
And now for a three-some: Hot Toys Dutch, Billy and Predator

And Hot Toys Dutch face-to-face with the Predator
Dutch: "You're one... *ugly* mutherf**k*r!" (language as used in the film) In today's context, it's just FUGLY!! And these two happen to be BFF - LOL!
