For Wolf I feel like the design ideas came from Scarface Predator.

Speaking of it implements that ADI 2004 style design well:

I believe one of the Strause brothers said Wolf was inspired by Broken Tusk from the old AvP comics, but I see what you mean about the ADI style design.

I actually love Wolf's overall design. I adore his mask, my favourite with City Hunter's.

I quite like Celtic's mask.

The AVP Queen was really great also.

I like how they double-downed on "ugly motherf**ker" aspect with Wolf. Like, JH looks nasty already but Wolf's face looks absolutely disgusting. As old, more seasoned Predator should. In my headcanon the older Predator gets, the uglier he looks



Oh, and I like Wolf's gigantic mandibles. I mean, they're HUGE ! That was litterally the only thing I could think about when I saw him for the first time





I actually very unpopularly love their take on the Queen, and the BTS video of that one in particular's amazing.

I don't think it's such an unpopular take actually. Their Preds get more heat in generall. And yeah, Queen looks glorious in AvP 2004. Watching her rise from her ice tomb is almost like religious experience to me



I'll second that with Predators getting ugly as they age. I can't imagine the lifestyle leads to a lot of pretty faces. Even in the first AVP the Ancient looks like he's seen a fair bit compared to how Scar looks.

I quite like their suited Predators. I think if nothing else their armour designs are pretty consistently great.

The bulky look in AvP definitely fit the comic book vibe Anderson was aiming for and I thought Wolf's more streamlined look was a solid return to form.

While I'm not particularly fond of the design, Scar is a very well realised creature effect with a frankly impressive performance range. The exact performance could've been better - the "oh shit" face was a bit much - but that's a reflection of Anderson's direction, not the mask itself.

The fact the thing could go from neutral to full scowl to "oh shit" all in the one effect is a much bigger achievement than people give it credit for.


Pretty much this, especially what I've put in bold text.

Thrice agreed. The designs themselves was never my issue at all.  Everything except the mandibles had always look superb. The broken mandibles is pretty much my only grievance with ADI's work.

I like their actual designs for the predators concerning armor, weapons, etc. Given my forum name, I'm sure you can see which weapon of ADI's was my favorite. Honestly, I don't know why so many dislike it.
