UPDATE August 3, 2011 - Differences between this release and the earlier version classic Predator.
This latest release is the classic Predator as seen in the "Predators" movie. For the original Hot Toys Predator from the first Predator movie, check out the link HERE and HERE

Differences as far as I can tell from the pictures: Latest release has newly developed head sculpt and upper body. The newer head appears smaller and more in proportion plus an additional head with non-removable mask is included. The FIRST Predator released has been nicknamed "Bobble Head Predator" after those bobbing head dolls whose heads were often oversized compared to their bodies. The mask is also different from the FIRST since they are NOT the same alien Predator. The body appears longer and the chest armor strap positioned higher. Also, there's the new light-up feature on the left forearm armor as well as a different figure stand. What's missing are the bone trophies which the FIRST Predator had and the ultra cool removable Medical Kit or medicomp with tools laid out. It was well concealed and attached to his back armor.

How much of a difference will this upcoming version be versus the Classic Pred they released earlier? (ie. of the original Predator movie)

Hot Toys releases are killing me.

Truly a classic move for HT. I am in favor of this figure, finally I can get a figure of the Classic Predator. Maybe Hot Toys might release a boxset containing the different weapons and accessories used in the different movies (Predator, Predator 2, AVP, AVPr and Predators). Plus another boxset of articulated Predator hounds (5 pieces).
