Hello Clint
The kit I got from ebay, it came as a box of unpainted resin bits, I upgraded the parts adding detail here and there, it was sold as cast from original, but I can't be sure, either way its a nice prop

Yeah I prefer the green colour as that's what I remember onscreen, I know the originals were more of a brown shade
Heres a commission I just finished for a collector a Michael Jackson Thriller zombie bust. I sculpted it a few years ago but haven't done many copies
heres one of the reference shots I used

Hey chris, this pred was finished for a friend, he bought it online from another artist and when it arrived it looked like this

I offered to fix it up for him and make it presentable, I resculpted areas on the crown and made new eye inserts for it so it wasn't boss eyed
So not all my work but it turned out ok and he was happy with it

Very nice upgrades to that Predator. You can really see the improvement in the mouth! And the beads/neck cover look just right bowwing

Love that series, I hope the new one is going well. Its hard to speculate on the quality. Predators (2010) was alright but just so forgettable.
