The predalien should honestly look like a big human alien, but because dreads have always been associated with the design they don't bother me. You'd only ever see it in crossover media anyhow, so it doesn't really bother.
There is a japanese sculptor who designed a predalien that I always thought looked pretty dope. He gave it the biomechanical up armoring that the aliens have lacked for a while.
apparantly some of the new models are made in japan so it makes searching for the design I'm talking about mostly impossible.
We used to have the pic saved somewhere on this site. Or maybe back in the gamegossip days, I can't remember.
there it is
even though i don't see anything about japan about it
mind aint what it used to be
