Why they did not made this in the first place.


Concept would have been too cool to put into a crappy movie like this. The concept art leaves a lot to be desired, but I like the idea.


Amalgamated Dynamics are a talented studio and I really like Tom Woodruff's work as a sculptor and suit performer, as this video attests.

Even in the lesser ALIEN movies I like his practical ALIEN effects, AVP-R being my favourite. Heck even the most critical DVD reviewers called AVP-R trash but gave the extras disc with Tom Woodruffs work a 5/5 review.

But these predator hybridizations concepts are just run of the mill stock to me.
Videogames design as padding yes, trying to upstage the classic predator design no.

I Like the concepts. It looks like they tried to create some other species from the predator homeworld. But I think they would fit more in a Predators Sequel on one of their hunting planets. It would be nice to see other species hunt down by predators.

I love that they didn't go down the dredds and mandibles on everything route. That was what I had been scared of. But from the sounds of it, that wasn't the mandate. These were the creatures the Predator had been harvesting from, not experimenting on.

Some commentary on some of the designs seen in the video.

One of Kyle's concepts for the Hound >

QuoteSome unused artwork for The Predator. It was really exciting to get to work on this character!

Voodoo Magic

The first one from Michael Vince looks interesting.

And I really like the body of the last Hound. But that face...? I really detest this pred-creature hybrid concept.  I feel like I'm back in the Ripley clone lab in Resurrection.  Why Shane, why.  :-[

Love all of the menagerie you posted,
aside from the last two hounds.


Even if they are experiments it still.mskes sense, all earth animals have pretty much the same skeleton just differnt proportions, I'd assume every animal on their home planet would have mandibles. They would have a 3volved from a comon ancestor.

Vertebrates and invertebrates exist for a start.

If you go the scientific route, based upon what we know today-
No- it wouldn't make sense; because in nature there's hardly even two arthropods that possess similar mandibles.

So even if you want to make the argument that the mandibles make sense because they evolved on the same world-
Fair enough, but then just like animals on Earth you'd also have to concede then logically the mandibles would look completely different;
because both would utilize them in completely different ways- as arthropods do, or even mammals.

They would absolutely not look nearly identical as the last two artworks show.


The wasted potential of this film is just astonishing :'(

The script doesn't match
the scope of the concept art.

They never do.
They dumb it down so much every time.
