Second Chance Offer: Predator on Alien Horse Collectible

Predator on Alien Horse Polystone Statue

Predator on Alien Horse Polystone Statue

I first posted about this collectible back in January because I loved it, but at the time it had actually been sold out. It seems someone didn’t follow through on their purchase and as a result someone else is going to get very lucky.

This is a Limited Edition (750 pieces) polystone statue of a Predator riding an Alien (Xenomorph) horse.  Since it was previously sold out, and since it is extremely cool, consider it “very limited”.

Price is US$249.99.

The Prize: An Alien VCD from Sideshow Collectibles (Click to enlarge)

Throughout the month of May we’ve been hosting a competition in conjunction with Sideshow Collectible’s to determine which are the ‘Top 10 Best Aliens in History‘.  The prize: a Medicom Toy Corporation’s high-quality Alien Vinyl Collectible Doll (VCD) valued at US $69.99!!

We would like to thank all 178 people who took the time to enter the competition. The criteria for selecting our winner, as per the competition guidelines, required that we compile all the entries received to find out which 10 aliens received the most votes with the winning entry to be selected from one of those.

There were many great and thoughtful entries submitted.  We also received a high number of individual votes for very obscure alien names including those from classic sci-fi feature films of the 50’s and 60’s (some that we had to double check to see if they weren’t made up!).  By the final day of the competition we had narrowed down our picks to three:

‘Predator’ Reboot On Its Way

Predators

IESB are reporting they have confirmed Director Robert Rodriguez will helm a reboot of 20th Century Fox’s Predator.

Rodriguez will both direct and produce the reboot.

In a news conference at Troublemaker Studio’s, Rodriguez told members of the press:

“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.”

It’s been 22 years since the first Predator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger graced our screens.  Three years later the sequel, starring Danny Glover didn’t do so well.  However in 2004 Aliens Vs Predator and again in 2007 Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem were both highly successful at the box office.

Yet with so many movies on Rodriguez’ plate, when exactly Predators will be released remains unknown.

Predator on Alien horse collectible statue

Predator on an Alien horse replica statueSo far this week I’ve cast my eyes on some pretty cool stuff, especially the life-sized Terminator T-800 replica.  But I’m not only a Terminator fan, I’m also an Aliens and Predator fan, so when I spotted this little beauty, my eyes lit up.

Ever wondered what an Alien horse would look like?  The guys at Sideshow Collectibles obviously have.  They put together this limited edition statue of a Predator riding above an Alien horse.  Pretty sick in my view.  If you’re a fan you’d no doubt want this, but alas, it was limited to 750 editions and they’re all sold out.  Sorry if I got your hopes up.  Still, if you want to check out a few screenies of this awesome collectible just for the hell of it, you can do so here.

Oh, by the way, there’s a waiting list button.  If you lodge an order, you could possibly still get one if someone who has already ordered cancels.  Its a remote hope.  How lucky are you feeling?
