Look out for #1. Don't step in #2 either.

And to top it off, they used paper lenses... PAPER! They did make up for that aspect with the following Celtic and Chopper bios however when they didn't even bother with the lenses at all, just painted them the same colour as the rest of the mask.... Dark days.

The Predator (and Alien) license really does deserve a bit more love and attention already.
What is the one thing that has remained a constant throughout? Sideshow project management. That is where the blame ultimately lies.

Do you realise how offensive your name is? The choice of that alone shows your true level of maturity and intelligence.

Cry much?

If the levels of maturity and intelligence displayed on this board were his inspiration when choosing the name, I'd say he completely nailed it.

XM Carnage, She Hulk, Medusa, Spider man & MJ are some of the worst modern-day pieces by a licensed company ever made. XM has great statues like Classic Ironman, Mags, Batman etc, along with superb packaging and qc but that can't make up for the art direction and management choices on some of their pieces which are just god awful.

Without the name tag I'd have no clue who that was supposed to be.
