Dark Horizons have posted a short paragraph that the effects team designed the Predator masks in order to prevent facehugger attacks and that the Predators’ longer blades help protect against acid:

“Gareth hears that the new look of the Predator masks “were designed to help prevent Alien Face Huggers from implanting Predators”, whilst their longer blades “allow their warriors to lessen the acid splash from Aliens”.”

I’m also guessing this Gareth person is the same person who works for PlanetAvP as “the move specialist”. This also raises more questions about how a Facehugger will be able to facehug a Predator – maybe one of the Predators’ masks gets knocked off and is left defenceless. Thanks to Gabe again for the news.

the thing with the mask and the face-huggers in, imho, obvious, and is something ive always said.  the thing about the wrist blades is new to me though.  thought they might have just been longer for looks/damage increase

Yes thats true but their armor and equipment as well as their weapons are impervious to the acid

that doesnt make sence, it wasnt like the predators masks had an opening where the mouth was anyways, so how could the new masks be designed to prevent face huggers when there never was an opening to begin with. lol

All of that crap is simple speculation.   The masks aren't designed to do anything like that, because it's been said by a few people that the Aliens would just try to tear the mask(s) off beforehand.

Well, I think its scrap as well. For the mask, I think that the different masks are for diff. clans. Or that every pred is making or asking for the mask he want. But Im moer up with my mask=clan theory. As for the blades, its obvious that were made to prevent the aliens from getting too close. The acid wont corrupt the weapons armor. But it will injure the pred if it gets on him. They were speculation about the facts that a preds blood will neutrolize acid, its crap to me. The preds arw aware of the danger the acid is. So since they are young, they are giving a chance to avoid it.

i think mask style is just like clothes style, personal preference.  though id assume that each elder has his own mark.

We know that a Predator is attacked by multiple Aliens(shown in the trailer).  I'll bet that is when the Aliens remove the Predators mask, and have a facehugger impregnate him.

I doubt it. in the traila, you see that the pred is getting shred. I dont think that a dead host will work to create an embryo. So if its the case, then PA will write another page in the alien lyfecycle. That the host dont have to be alive when its facehugged.
