Updated: Constantine Sekeris Shares Predator Spacesuit & Emissary Armour Concept Art!

Constantine Sekeris, one of The Predator’s concept artists, who previously shared a look at the various explorations of the Upgrade Predator, has just uploaded some armour concepts that he worked on that include the Emissary Predator’s armour, an armour concept that more closely resembles the original film and what a possible Predator spacesuit would have looked like!

“One version is a sleeker cleaner spacesuit option and the other is referencing the original 80’s design with modifications with out any accessories like his helmet, gauntlets, shoulder gun, tubes, skulls, etc. Had to do these pretty quickly so didn’t have time to refine any details or pose them…..none of these made it into the film…but was a lot of fun exploring different designs.

The Predator Blu-ray is due to hit shelves on the 18th of December in the States. Those of us in the United Kingdom will have to wait around a month later as it wont be out in the UK until the 28th of January.

Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator! You can follow us on FacebookTwitter, Instagram and YouTube to get the latest on your social media walls. You can also join in with fellow Alien and Predator fans on our forums!

Update 14/11/2018 – We’ve been asked to remove the concepts by Mr Sekeris so those have now been taken off the post.

    any more news on the new art book ( the art of the hunt) that was coming out with the blu ray? and any idea if its out in the uk? thanks.

    That's the version I pre-ordered. Other than being 36 pages long and seemingly full of unreleased art, there hasn't been any other news on the book that I'm aware of, including it's availability other than the US unfortunately.

    Any further discussion can be found on this thread: https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=60532.0

    I'll be honest, as much as I was against the whole "Lion Preds, Tiger Preds, three-legged Preds, oh my!" approach  from the original draft; I'd've much preferred that to just more pred dogs and another giant predator.

    However, the fact is, the whole GM/Upgrade aspect is largely responsible for the fans' backlash and so it needed binning. I can see why the studio intervened, but the film was on a hiding to nothing from the off, sadly.

    RE the monkey pred leaks: The slender arms look not too dissimilar to the 'remains' you can see on the original Coyle death pic from the first slew of leaked pics, IIRC.

    What in the world? Not just the dogs, but all the bats spiders and lizards were Predator hybrids too?

    I never thought I would say this, but I'm happy the Fox Executives stepped in here and demanded changes.

    Another generic nope. Most creature and suit effects these days lack personality, regardless how well designed and executed they are. The brief was to be fresh, the execution came to be different by omitting what predators where about in terms of character design.

    Jeezus, more trash from what was already a trashy movie. This truly could have been a lot worse.

    I don't know.
    Predators are not certainly about being good looking or trendy, and so a space suit doesn't work in my mind.

    My sentiments exactly.

    The one thing I love about Predators is their tribal ascetic and that their bleeding edge technology incorporates an ancient design which does not emulate the human equivalent of high-tech i.e. smooth and shiny metalic surfaces.

    That's why I prefer the Predator ship interior in "Predator 2" and thoroughly reject the ship used in AvP.

    This right here. He gets it, everything after predator 2  has been a design disaster. Especially the iron-man Pred design we just got. There is zero imagination in it. Just an amalgamation of marvel and video game crap that someone adores. No consideration for what came before and what's been established in the true canon of the first two
    films.

    A Predator without his fishnets would be an outrage!

    It's funny how most descriptions of the Predator fishnets describe it as being used for warmth.  Not that I doubt that's their intended purpose, but seriously, how much "warmth" can those things add?  There are giant holes all over the place!

    I think it make sense if they function like an automobile backglass, rear-windshield/windscreen defroster/defogger, where the netting is made of resistive conductors and when power is applied, the conductors heat up.

    Well, I can't imagine Predators don't have some sort of coverall space suit that they use when they're travelling. Almost every other media has showed them in a suit, so I wouldn't exactly be 'offended' if it made it to the films.  But not necessary in my opinion.  Have to admit though, these are somewhat unimaginative (save for the Doom Slayer chest piece :laugh:).

    Neither we've ever seen a predator wearing one. From my point of view it would not add anything good to him apart criticism. Does they even need it in a..what..5th film?
    The focus must be his lust for blood, the restless hunting of his pray (and playing with her), his ruthelsness. Make predator scary again!
    A bunch of guys trying to outjoke each other with some predator on steroids running around is not what people desires. Well..sorry for going OT but I had to say it, again. :)
    Right on.
