I hate to keep harping on this but there’s definitely an indentation on the chin at least in the photos. It’s not “painted in” from what I can see. probably won’t stop me from getting this but it shouldn’t be there and it ruins what it should look like. It’s just a completely different look that it gives off. The cleft chin Predator.

The more I look at it, the more it does look too thick, or too short between his belt and the lowest point of his chest armour, I can't really figure out which. However from other angles it looks okay, it's a weird one.

I'll say this, I think this is awesome over all and I'm hoping to get this and the 1/3 City hunter as my collection showstoppers. However, they have put so much effort into this, that a few minor tweaks could improve it immensely and might be worth considering simply to place the cherry on top of this potential masterpiece. With that in mind, what I'd love to see happen to really make this the ultimate, probably never to be bettered JH statue is the following.

Sort out the torso proportions if they are indeed an issue in person.
relax the arms slightly inwards to give it the more natural look and distinguish it further from the CM's pose.
Remove the sculpted damage from the bio mask
Offer a holstered cannon position option.
Swap that semi roar head for a fully closed mandible head. They're both too similar currently and fully closed offers a different look that many prefer.
remove the groove in the lower chin.


Do I expect any of this, no, but some of it would be nice. And pointless requests are what we like doing, so there's mine. It's exciting either way.



Side comparison is better than front for sure!

Oh I'll add one more, his skin looks really wrinkled on this statue, it should be fairly smooth.

Thank you for drawing attention to this. Looks like they tried to give it a lot of unnecessary texture.

You are right. Once pre-order goes up and the full photo gallery is released it can be further examined. Seems there plenty to improve. But will Prime1 even bother to change anything at all?

Maybe it's some sort of distortion in the pic or print? I mean, look just above his right arm gauntlet. WTF is that... who would sculpt ripples like that?

I was thinking the same thing. He's got these horizontal wrinkles running all over his skin for some odd reason, that don't need to be there... Also agree they need a closed mandible portrait!

It’s going to be a difficult decision now to drop 2K+ for Mr. Wrinkles if they let this go to production. They need to smooth this out.
