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!

    Hmm it does have the Limited “Chase” sticker on both the green pred hound and the maskless Captured Predator box (dammit they’re gonna make me work for those). Maybe the red and green hounds are just collectibles.

    The box for Captured (with a mask) only features 3 figures for the series, one of those already being Captured (with a mask), then Upgrade, and Ollie.

    Maybe it's all an elaborate ruse to secure us in the theatre seats, and then surprise us with the final Predog version.  Interesting that they'd make the maskless version of Captured as Limited.  You'd think that'd be just a standard available figure.

    I don't know how you collectors show the restraint that you do  :D I don't collect, but if I did my home would probably be littered with toys, prints, and paraphernalia.

    Lol 😆




    I’ve kind of grown to like the dreaded pups... at least for the collectible figures sake.


    Ugh if I never received one single Alien Pop toy as a gift a couple years ago, I would be able to resist the urge of buying these stupid vinyls. But now I gotta “catch em all”.
     At least I’ve managed to steer clear of collecting the NECA figures, I’d be broke and constantly searching for those on top of my clothing and shoe expenses.   :P :D

    So I bought the masked fugitive Predator vinyl and on the back of the box it still shows the exact pred dog that Shane posted... without the dreads.

    That would be Ollie?

    Yes that one, would they really use both designs I wonder?

    Hm, that seems strange. If the Ollie design is still showing up on marketing material, maybe they are planning on using both in the movie.... odd move though  :-\
  5. The Old One
    If this was the design philosophy for all the hybrids then yes indeed, I'm glad they have been removed.

    I thought the spider-creatures were going to be along the lines of headcrabs with crustacean overtones, maybe mandibles.

    But if they're as bad in design as the Predator Dogs here I'm glad they're gone.

    (Hopefully the film versions were changed in design after Funko pops got the designs way back when.)
    It's my only hope for not laughing at these things come September.
  6. YTL_Hunter_H2
    Horrible... just like in the leaked script. Now imagine thete was whole other bunch of hybrids looking similar. Awful, yuck.

    Thank God they removed them. Yeah, I'm really disappointed it's just dreads slapped on the dogs. Fortunately no mandibles, though.
    may as well have the mandibles the teeth are exactly the same. Makes me thankful the hybrids were cut
  7. Wysps
    If this is a accurate respresentation of how they'll appear in the film it's going to take me out of it every time they appear.

    Yeah.  If that's the design they've settled on, I'm going to check out every time they come on screen.  Not a good cinema experience.

    Yeah, will have to see how the none Funkoed version looks, of course.

    So far, it doesn't look promising  :-\  Given how much the original character design from the leaked script is being reflected in the toy.
  8. The Old One
    Thanks! I hate it!

    I could make better concept art for a Predator dog that doesn't involve slapping dreds on the thing, this was a terrible decision.
    If this is a accurate respresentation of how they'll appear in the film it's going to take me out of it every time they appear.

    Honestly, hope to the Heavens that this is an Alien Covenant situation where the merchandise design is different from the film design. 
  9. Wysps
    Oh god. What happened  ??? I thought they had changed their minds and went without the dreads/Predator head? This, as expected, looks utterly ridiculous. Especially with what they want to do with it in the movie.
  10. Xerxész
    Umm...interesting.
    Not an exact Predator head I think...just look at the dogs' eyes...they are on the sides of the head. And the mouth is different also, but yeah...quite similar to the Predators.
    Maybe they have much shorter dreadlocks then a Predator which could look cool.
    We'll see. :)

    With the Upgrade being full CGI I imagine that when Funko was designing the 'Super Predator' Pop they had very little source material. It looks so bland.

    I hope we see some detailed images of the movie version Upgrade soon.

    Openmaw you have very cleverly took one clip of a conversation I was having for days, and focused on it when if you were to carry on the conversation you will read that I changed my mind. It was me who brought the whole friendly predators not being in the film up in the first place. Ask big daddy John. It was you who was adamant that wasn’t the case. And yes you are quick to jump the gun and have been doing it practically all year. How many times have I said give the film a chance , or you don’t know that yet until you see it ? Maybe you have seen the film before us all , and have seen something we don’t know ? I had a negative moment about the film, mainly because of the script. when things started coming out about it I relaxed. Maybe you should too? You can’t honestly say you know what 20 century fox intentions are with AVP, no one does. With the failure of alien covenant and the collapse of alien 5 , if the predator is successful, it would make total sense for fox to incorporate alien into predator again. Not saying it would definitely happen. Just saying I wouldn’t be surprised. Fox will be looking to bank on Disney’s cinimatic universes model. Alien and predator and blade runner are a way they can do it.
  13. SpeedyMaxx
    Very glad the dogs are still there. I never bought the rather baseless claims all that had been excised. Seemed like insecure fanwank.

    As for 'shockingly bad' response or why reshoots are done - they can be very common on films like this regardless of response, which I did not hear was 'shockingly bad'. If
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)
    guess what, that's the ending I read over a year ago.

    Openmaw didn’t you say the friendlies were still in The Predator when I said for months it was the complete opposite and they had been cut ?

    You WAFFLED on that very point! Your posts are publicly available. Just barely over a month ago you said it was entirely possible they would still be in the film.

    Yeah lefty I was thinking a lot about it today , iv come to the conclusion they are in it , but get used as cannon fodder earlier on , and the captured kills them and maybe steals their gear hence why he is in the same mask , seems the logical step at this stage, and maybe that’s why they were not featured in the trailers as they were deemed unimportant by Shane and fox as they are killed off early on. Of course I’m just speculating though !  ;)

    That didn't even take me two seconds to find.


    Not being funny but you do tend to jump the gun a bit.

    No. I really do not. I go with the best evidence on hand. Shane Black stepped up his game and made the changes that needed to be made based on test screenings. Which I admitted and gave him kudos for. I have also been defending certain concepts regarding the film as more information has been forth coming. Having an open mind and being willing to change said mind when the facts are in hand is more intellectually honest than blind optimism supported by Jack and his good friend shit.

    I have always maintained that the hybrids, spiders, and the allied Predators were terrible and would need to be changed or excised completely to fix the utterly awful third act. I also maintained that the likelihood of those changes being put into effect this late it into the production was slim to none. I admitted that I was shocked and pleasantly surprised that they had.

    I never once tried to pretend like I hadn't called that wrong. I was wrong. They did change it.

    Do you not get how un-f**king-likely it is for a movie like this to get a total reworking of it's ending? That only happens when the audience reaction is shockingly bad. As in, producers and executives having panic attacks and shitting themselves over all the invested cash going up in flames.

    Fox still make a bunch out of the AVP franchise. Be it comics , hot toys , NECA , it goes on and on. A film that came out In 2004 night I add and it’s still profitable .

    They make money via low investment, low risk, "tertiary media." Comics, novels, and toys. That has always been where AVP has done it's best. The original AVP comic was one of the all time best selling comics ever. Fox doesn't need to make a movie and risk a multi million dollar budget when they can get some assholes to draw cartoons and mold plastic.

    The film is not profitable. It barely broke the margins, which is why AVPR got a drastically reduced budget, and had a shorter filming schedule to boot.

    And while you say it’s only props , the fact of the matter is we havnt seen The Predator yet , and there could very well be more links in there, Black has already said this film is connected to all the others including AVP.

    I'm not the one saying it. Black said there would be ties. We've been told that the spear from AVP is in there, somewhere. That's your connection to the AVP franchise. Your connection to Predator 2? Keyes son. Your connection to Predator? The original mask. OTHER connections as in other connections to the other films. Predators (apparently) hasn't happened yet.

    Judging by the failure of alien covenant , Fox are probably thinking about this very subject.  It makes total sense business wise to make a follow up / reboot. The fact Shane Black has included some AVP elements should be telling you that.

    No, it does not. It makes no sense to take on another high concept and risky venture like AVP when the first two films were the epitome of diminishing returns and met with scathing critical review. It forced the Predator franchise into soft reboot territory with "Predators" and it was only the incredible pedigree and pull of Ridley Scott that made Prometheus happen. Which was still done with a lot of cautious tip toeing by Fox. "It's an Alien film, without the Alien. It's going to be really classy like the original film, and nothing like those kiddy AVP films."

    It doesn't tell me that there are any plans for a future AVP film. Nobody at Fox has indicated they are even looking into the concept for another AVP film for the foreseeable future. NO ONE. We just got some insider information that indicates nothing is going on with the AVP side of the license on the big screen. ALIEN. Yes. Predator. Depends on The Predator.

    Nothing. Nadda. Zilch. About an AVP film, and why would there be?

    That A3 Fox intro needs to return. It would get the same reaction of hype from me as the first time I saw this return.

    Agreed 110%. One of the greatest tweaks to a film company logo ever. It tells you everything you need to know about Alien 3. This is going to be a dark and depressing story.

    I don't think it's just rare to attempt it, it's a triple task because it's also difficult to do and with AVP you're intergrating not one creature with it's own distinct legacy and identity but two.

    Yep.

    It's not likely. Dark Horse can keep making comics, NECA can keep making toys, but the chance we'll ever see another AVP film? Not likely.

    I'm someone who wants another AVP. I believe the concept has a lot of potential that was never even remotely given it's just due on the big screen. I want something that measures up to the comic, the Briggs script, or the tingling feeling I get when I watch the AVP 1999 PC game trailer and think "That's what that movie should have felt like."

    Hell, when I was a kid and I saw this trailer on the Resurrection VHS, I was sure we'd hear news of an AVP movie in the near future.

    As of right now we'll be so lucky if these two franchises can turn it around independently.
