I think they'd show female predators with boobs. But as they said on the 'cast, its a tough call because I do agree that "the more you show, the less interesting the creature gets." On the other hand, we know they have a hunter-caste, but as Hicks points out, that can't be all there is to their society.
I have no problems with a female Predator whatsoever but a lot of people have different interpretations to what they could be like, and I think that is what has been a major reason why we haven't seen a female Predator. Some people think that they should simply be what the concept art that Michael Broom had drawn, and others believe that they should be nearly indistinguishable from the males of the species. The thing is with Michael Broom's version is that it comes off as extremely sexualized, and I wouldn't want to see something like that on screen. If there is a female hunter, she should be robust and powerful but not sexy.
As for Predator occupations, I have always viewed them in the ways which the Perry's have presented them as. That they are all Hunters and warriors, and those who aren't are regulated to being slaves to do menial and demeaning tasks. But fans see that as being limited and perhaps detrimental to the species. Personally, I have no problems with Predators being a Hunter-Warrior race. I actually like the idea of all Predators being Hunters BUT.. I wouldn't mind seeing specialized Hunters or Hunters with a certain sub-set of skills. These occupations would definitely be geared towards the Hunt.
I've actually entertained the idea of any clan.. Having different Hunters with different skills. They are all Hunters and Warriors but they also have their own occupations. I like to envision one Predator who, aside from hunting is also a specialized medic. He/She would have further medical training to deal with far more grievous wounds and would be able to work more efficiently. I also envision another Predator, who still Hunts but is also something of a mechanic or weaponsmith-- it'd be interesting to see how each clan has different weapons, different styles with a weaponsmith crafting them with their own artistic appeal. And another idea is that considering that Predators have primal mentality, I wouldn't mind seeing a Predator shaman or witchdoctor.
Imagine a Predator biologist who actually does the study of species through the Hunt. He's observing, recording, figuring out the habits of the prey, hunts.. dissects the body, evaluate which organs does which, and categorizes the species for future hunting in some sort of database where other Predators could learn about from.
We've already seen a Predator Cleaner through Wolf.. but I think that execution could've been done a whole lot differently and better. Wolf just seem to come off as more of another Hunter rather than someone trying to erase evidence.
But someone had said that we don't need to see how their politics are run, what their governing body is (they're a clan based society, which would mean they have no need for a King or Queen monarch) and we've already seen the homeworld in AvP-R. Assuming of course you count that movie.. which.. a lot of people, don't.
