Updated: New Coolprops Collectibles Shown at Tokyo Comic Con

Tokyo Comic Con happened this weekend, and high-end collectible company CoolProps had some upcoming Alien and Predator products prominently on display.

Unveiled was a new life-size bust of a female Predator “Shiranui,” which seems to be a companion piece to the “Kagero” Predator which was shown last year.

These two pieces are by renowned Japanese sculptor and make-up artist Akihito Ikeda. Check out some pictures of these incredible sculpts below.

The Kagero Predator is now available for pre-order for the Japanese market, with international pre-orders opening soon and available through Sideshow Collectibles. Both Predators are striking, featuring numerous decorative adornments, as well as face-masks which cover their mouths, rather than the full bio-helmets we’re used to seeing on Predators. A very Samurai look if you ask me.

Akihito has done a number of live-sculpting sessions at conventions, and at last year’s Tokyo Comic Con, he sculpted a female Predator as well as a Predalien Queen. I thought these sculpts looked great when I first saw them, especially for quickly-done live presentations, and I’m happy to see his female Predator evolve into this finished product.

CoolProps and other producers such as Prime-1 work with a number of different artist to create their collectibles. Artist Stéphane Faure, (AKA Beesub) also had a prototype on display at the booth for a new 1:3 scale Alien Warrior Maquette, as depicted in the film Aliens.

Beesub previously sculpted the AVP Alien Queen for CoolProps, which can now be pre-ordered from Sideshow.

    Also, I just stumbled across this bust on BBTS:

    God damn, Coolprops stuff is amazing! Still not keen on breasts but I do like the colouring on both of those busts.

    Giving it consideration, breasts on a female Predator are logical to me, considering the body of a male Predator and his musculature is anatomically very close to a human male.
    This presupposes that the ones we've seen in the movies are male. ;)

    Ah, tou·ché!

    Agreed. The head shape is wonderful. I would love to see a concept like this realized on screen one day!

    Yeah, I think that's a nice way to go about differentiating the sexes. I hadn't really considered going for a different head-shape and I think it really works.

    Please stop giving the PredAlien dreds...

    Agreed. Just mandibles are enough for me.

    Breasts aside, I’m actually really digging the head shape that the female has. The crown is wider, reminding me almost of a hammer head. A very unique direction, imo. Refreshing to see something other than a focus on dimorphic genitalia. Awesome work  :)

    But putting that aside, it's wonderful work!

    Female PREDATORs?

    Not sure if AVP-GALAXY users want to reopen that can of worms from last week, when Alec Gillis said he proposed designing a female PRED in podcast 70  26/11/2018.

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=61047.0

    Whether you like the concept or not- these designs look cool. If I were to authorise them for a movie- based on design alone- I'd greenlight them.
    Moot points is they have a SIL Species (1995) biomechnical, rather than tribalistic design. Not a bad aesthetic for an AVP3 movie though.

    But the main issue is we're getting too close to "humanising" the PREDATOR where they go from mysterious cold blooded killers, to misunderstood STAR TREK extras with a human style civilisation.
    Whatever next? A female predator stood over a medieval style predator stove, in a predator home, holding an infant PREDATOR baby while preparing an off-world three headed hog roast, while her husband flies off in a Spaceship to hunt ALIENS or humans?
