We've all seen this ugly mug before - I can't really tell the difference between this Guardian Predator from the FIRST Predator (reviewed HERE). They all look pretty much the same without their masks IMHO although "pretty" isn't a word I would use for these aliens. Scar Predator basically had a scar on his forehead (see pictures HERE).

That is a pretty tiny shoulder cannon LOL this guy must have felt insecure when he went to get his cannon with the other boys who had much bigger guns ha! ha!

This is the first time I've seen the Predator oxygen mask - makes him look like The Elephant Man

You can expect all the intricate details of his armor from Hot Toys coz they never disappoint

The Predator's Shuriken and its housing next to his right thigh. The origin for the word came from the Japanese shuriken (Japanese 手裏剣; literally: "sword hidden in the hand"), a traditional Japanese concealed weapon that was generally for throwing, and sometimes stabbing or slashing.

That's a most interesting bone trophy. Isn't it amazing that aliens from other planets (if they exist at all) would have skeletons and bones just like us humans? We are just more comfortable identifying with things we can understand and comprehend as we cannot fathom beyond what is around us.

Release date: Q3 2010

Artists: Figure Sculpted by Pan Mak, Figure Painted by Kermit Law

Awesome. I love it when this guy de-cloaks in the movie, and I love the Predators HT has put out, and this one would go nicely alongside the Celtic Predator and the original Predator I already have :)
