Was always SCAR Predator, because it resembled the classic look of the Predator


Lame UK only


Argh! Ah well, I'm in District-9 country anyhow, South Africa would be difficult to ship to even if it wasn't a UK only competition.  :-

Thanks for the chance to enter, normally its USA only comps or such and such. So nice for it to be UK only for a change.

Anyhoo...Scar has got to be my favourite, he truly looks awesome and captures the honour of the predator mythos perfectly.

The enemy of the enemy is my friend.


Not sure how this qualifies as a competition? Still, neat. Fnny to think that someone who might say their favorite is the Celtic predator (my favorite) then win a predator that is not their favorite haha


Thanks for the opportunity!

For me, Celtic definitely has to be my favourite from the film. This is primarily because of his mask. While Gort's mask was a very cool design, I can completely understand why it was ommitted from the design of the Predator from the film, being that it subtly gave too much away to the audience as to what was behind the mask.

That said, I think Celtic's bio-mask is a very contemplative and visually impressive design. While I feel his mask is intended to pay homage to the Gort/Guardian predator design if you examine the two side by side, they're so similar yet completely different at the same time. Also, if you pay close attention, you might notice that he had shorted dreads than his two brothers, which helps him stand out and to dinstinguish him as the leader of the trio.

Too bad he was eliminated so swiftly  :P

Think of it as a giveaway then.  :)

Mine even here as a figure and that would be Celtic his mask was such a departure from the rest it stood out more


My favourite is Scar.

Hooray for UK only competition!



I guess if I'm quick I might just be able to sneak an entry in before the deadline's up. :D

This is kind of a tough call. It's definitely a choice between Scar and Celtic, and there are good reasons for picking either one.

Celtic has a really great mask design that really makes him stand out, and he's able to go toe-to-toe with a pretty nasty Alien and almost come out on top; right before his "obligatory Predator overconfidence (or stupidity; tomato/tomAto  :laugh: )" gets the better of him. He has a counter for everything Grid is throwing at him for a good long while there, and he's clearly got some moves, which makes for a pretty cool fight scene.

On the other hand, Scar has a "classic" mask design as well as some of the most badass moments of the film (slicing that one Alien's head in half when it tries to sneak up on him without even missing a beat, and that great 'spear to the head' spin attack on the Queen at the end). And while we never really see him go hand-to-hand against any of them like Celtic does, he's able to rack up far more xeno kills than.....well, none. :laugh: Plus when one of those kills is a Queen,  you know you've done well by pretty much anyone's standards (even if he did have some help with that ;) ).

So I think I'm going to have to go with Scar. If only his situational awareness was just a little bit better, I think he could have gone on to great things. :P
