    Predator...wicked style

    Not fett, but sci-fi, and if I remember right Boba and pred shared a comic, so it is somewhat related.lol
    All armor is metal of course.Everything else is from various sources, but the hands and feet were painted by me, and I added the quills and dreads.
    My buddy mike and his wife Allison are always in my pics as they are gracious enough to take them and let me use there basement for all my shoots.lol

    Bruv... I... can't... think of words! (I know very sad thing to say)
    BUT that is (can't swear) totally awesome!! I love the pred suit and as Pred before me.. $/'s do not allow it.
    great that your mates get into the action too... I think the shot with your female friend was the same (ish) pose with 'Jason'?

    I'd love to have one of those suits, but I don't believe I have the money.

    Re: Predator...wicked style

    Yeah it lights up.lol...I installed 4 windows under the lid out of the green visors i use for buckets.I then masked off the symbols on the underside with pinstriping, and spray the whole underside flat black, after removing the striping I put 4 of those red tirelights under each one.The slightest movement makes them blink erradically forming a sequence.

    Re: Predator...wicked style

    For all those asking about the cost of a Predator suit, it depends on how much you want to scratchbuild yourself and how much you want to purchase from the artists that make the parts (just like buying the Fett stuff). Then you get into the really high end stuff like animatronics which brings the cost up quite a bit....moving blade gauntlets, moving cannon, moving face mandibles, etc.....because very few people make those animatronics.

    But, for the average full painted good quality Predator costume (no animatronic parts), the cost is about on par with a good quality Fett costume. I'd say around $2,500-$3,500 is about the average range, depending what all you want with it.

    Unlike most of the typical Star Wars armor costumes being vaccumformed plastic pieces, most all Predator armor parts you get are usually foam backed latex or resin or fiberglass. Many suits have a combination of all those styles of armor parts. These suits also take a hefty amount to time to put together to a finished state, so that's where some of the cost comes from as well.

    Yeah I'd also love to get a predator suit but not until Boba is complete.

    If any of you are actually looking at purchasing one of these, check out Pete Mander, his predator costumes are incredible. They're not cheap but they are worth every penny in my opinon.

    You can view some of his work here:
