The Predator Pop Funko Offers First Look at Predator Dog

Earlier this month Shane Black shared a picture on Instagram of what we believed was a n early prototype Pop Funko of the new Predator Dog! Now that the new The Predator line has hit the stores, we’ve got confirmation that it was in fact the Predator Dog! And now we have our first look at the Predator Dogs from the new film – albeit a cutesified version!

We’re also seeing our first glimpse at Funko’s take on the Upgrade Predator, which Funko is just calling Super Predator. Thanks to Funko Pop Hunters for the picture of the back of the figure box!

    My logic to this is the fact The Predator has direct links to AVP , in that sense anything is possible. Add to it the failure of covenant , it actually sort of makes sense.

    It has direct connections in the sense that fans of the series can point at a wall prop and go "Oh, that's AVP." That does not mean there's even a clandestine attempt to start something bigger.

    Indeed. I think we might be reading a little too much in the set decoration. I still think it's just what ADI had knocking around or still had the moulds at hand. It's something I do plan on asking when/if we get to chat to them following the film's release but I do think people shouldn't put much on them at this point.

    There's little reason we shouldn't get another AVP.

    Because neither one of them did particularly well (Hence why AVP:R got less money.), both were critically mixed/negative.

    Ultimately, this. Fox haven't abandoned the concept, though. I know that. But the last attempts haven't gone down well. Alien's revival hasn't done as well as they wanted and there's a fair bit of negative press to overcome with The Predator too...so that might still not do well. I think the chances of a new AvP film are slim enough as it is. If The Predator doesn't do well, they'll be even slimmer.

    I'll keep repeating it. They never had faith in the concept from the get go, and after making what they could out of the cash cow, they are not likely to visit AVP ever again, or a the very least not for a good long while.

    Because for me, it's not about the Alien VS the Predator, it's about the humans trying to survive both.

    Exactly this. We absolutely need characters we can root for, that we can have empathy for. The AVP movies totally failed at that.

    True. But I wouldn't put it past em' to test the waters. Both AVP's made a decent return for their money. And this was before the prequels, Predators, The Predator, Alien Isolation, and cameos made in games like Ghost Recon and Mortal Kombat. This universe is very much alive on large and small screens, though there have been some stumbles.

    There's little reason we shouldn't get another AVP. Yes, it's hard for fans to forget how bad the last two were because we think about this stuff alot, but John Q. Public might not even remember or care. With lower budget risks like deadpool making bank, maybe we can even get an R rating. It's not totally and completely impossible to make a good AVP movie. If The Predator does so-so, coupled with the lukewarm response to covenant, somebody may decide to combine the two again, purely for the spectacle and a quick buck.

    But it doesn't have to be Michael Bay's AVP, or Aliens 2. Somewhere out there, a good idea is still waiting. And I hope we get to see it on the big screen one day. Because for me, it's not about the Alien VS the Predator, it's about the humans trying to survive both. Surely this can still be done for an acceptable amount of money. C'mon Hollywood.

    I'd prefer the latter, but I also like to think Falconer and Tracker were classic Predators, just bad bloods, that joined their freak of nature brother, Berserker, rather than abandoning him.

    "Super Predator"? I thought the upgrade was something distinct from the Berserker etc.

    I suppose it's fine if you consider him *The* Super Predator rather than *a* Super Predator, but I prefer the term "Upgrade"

    I agree, but people often feel the need to tie everything together, it's probably reassuring.

    I think that was the original intent, but now they could be "on second thought"ing it and trying to tie all the movies together more cohesively.  I honestly would have preferred Upgrade remaining something entirely different than the hunting party in Predators, but at least they're not discounting what happened in the other movie(s).  Makes me wonder if the Super Predators are all from the same clan or if the only thing they have in common is roiding up.

    I actually like that he's more stripped down and feral. That is the unique take. Instead of having him in even more armory armor.

    But that's not interesting nor fitting. We have plot about this intergalactic alien head hunter, known for his superior technology, who wants to be even better and more deadly (whole mutation subplot), yet he runs around in his shorts . Not every fitting.

    I disagree entirely. I think a more primal Predator is the more interesting route. We've already had a lot of Predators with new toys. It is fitting of a bigger more animalistic Predator to prefer to use less tech and be superior at hunting and killing himself. Without the aid of extra tech.

    But that makes him just another big monster, insted of sophisticated alien hunter, one of a kind. It takes away allot.

    I can see your point.

    However I'm going to miss certain things I want in a Predator movie.

    No mask means no thermal vision.

    No laser traingle.

    I doubt we'll see him camouflaged.

    No mandibles! I'm pretty damn happy about that!
    This. I am all for new creatures, but mandibles and dreads on a dog probably won't work.

    Also, those mandibles are good for holding food, signaling and communication. Not for biting.

    So pleased they made this change. Was never sold on the mandibles/dreds combo - just didn’t sit right, especially for what they wanted to do with them in the movie.

    Also seems like they’re officially tying the Upgrade to the Super Predators, judging by that label?  ???

    Hate it , it just looks like a deformed Staffordshire bull terrier , not an alien creature a million lightyears Away. I also see the upgrade is being called super predator again...? Could this be related to mr blacks tribe ?
    Seems like it.
    And I really don't mind. I don't need big budget films with this creature, I need creative tales adhering to the same concept of a creature hunting unknowing prey in the form of armed men.

    I still want to see whatever those spider things were going to be.

    I expect we'll get to see them when everyone starts released their artwork. I hope we do, anyway.

    I’m totally in agreement with you there. Not using the Dog design, from Predators, here is a missed opportunity I think. It would have been a great nod to that movie and tied it nicely and also further established the Dog in the cannon as an addition to Predator Species, instead of a one off, never to be seen again.

    There's so many concepts from Predators in this that it just seems a strange choice to me.
  16. Russ840
    Yeah, I'm not keen on dreadlocks either but it's unclear if this'll have them. They should have just stuck with the same design from Predators IMHO.
