Preview Hot Toys Predator 2 - 1/6th scale Elder Predator 14-inch tall Movie Collectible Figure

Despite a brief screen time in Predator 2, Elder Predator has been one of the most popular Predator among fans of the series. His cool look as well as his code of honor and respect for fellow warriors all contributed to make him a fan favorite!

Following the release of Celtic Predator, Hot Toys is proud to present the new 1/6th scale Elder Predator Collectible Figure from the Predator 2 movie. The movie-accurate Elder Predator collectible is specially crafted based on his image in the film, featuring his highly detailed body armor, weapons and accessories.

Elders are Yautja warriors who have distinguished themselves in battle or by their leadership. A Predator Elder is seen in Predator 2, Elders in the Predator series show respect by giving a gift to someone who can best or help a Predator in battle. Although an Elder has never been seen fighting, it can be assumed that they are skilled in the way of the Yautja hunter. (source: avp wiki)
