The feet look really off to me, like that heel portion shouldn't be there.

Aaargh, can you stop deleting posts when you want to make changes to them? There's an edit button for a reason :D

I think the heel is there for stability if anything.

How is sculpting a heel being lazy?

I'm not sure the figure would be able to stand on its own if they gave it a shorter/non existent heel. Stompy and the Defiance xeno have that issue..maybe they made it thicker so they wouldn't have to issue a stand with each one?

It's clearly not newly sculpted- it's just using the same foot mold as the AVP Warrior.

That seems like a fair enough conclusion, but then IMO, they should've made the heel portion in translucent plastic.

I think it's a case of attaching new legs to a figure that wasn't initially weighted for them with the Isolation and Defiance Aliens, as they fall over constantly according to all reports- yet the Covenant Xeno and Neo both have no issues standing up with digitigrade legs.

smart choice with complimenting them at the end there  :D

I mean technically if the Pred-Alien were an "Ultimate" figure like Wolf will be they could totally whip up a second head and add it to the box.

I'd be surprised if the did that. And the bodies are not identical. Greater chance of it being a separate figure some day. I think down the line they're gonna milk the games and comics until they're dry. Especially if new movies don't come out for a while. If they have the license long enough, they'll do them all. The less factory problems they have, the faster it will come.

I'm desperate for a predalien figure. But I want good articulation. I would love to see that concept predalien come to life. That would be utterly badass.

Dorman Predalien and Working Joes are my two biggest wants from the expanded universe. At least at this moment. I'm sure I could come up with a bunch of other things.
