I think it will look good on film with good angles and lighting. I'm serious.

But I say ADI.
Dorman's looks... I dunno, impractical.

Preference:
Dorman's has a much better body. There are still designs out there which are better, but if we're contrasting the two, the 1990s one is better. It's more threatening.

I would actually vote for neither. I still have the view that the 3D Custom Foam version was better than both and Dorman's suffers from illogical mandibles. Why did he reduce the uppers to virtually nothing?

Out of the two, Dormans seems better, as a whole. Out of the three, 3D Custom Foam's was better than both.

Reality:
We know from Crom that ADI had wanted to make their version a lot more Alien, in general. The studio apparently made them change it from what they wanted to do.

However, that doesn't excuse the mandibles, which are, by far, the biggest problem with it. The whole point of the Predalien was the mandibles. The one we presently have doesn't look like the jaws would suit a Predator, any more than they look like they function well alongside the Alien's.

That picture was of the Predalien chestburster. The mandibles look right on that. What we presently have doesn't look like it would have evolved from that. With the new one, the viewer can tell it's like an ordinary Alien head prop's jaw with a couple of animatronic pods strapped to each side.

The choice of mandibles, hands and that weird tail are all apparently the result of what the directors and ADI had wanted. I could see Fox telling them to put the tendrils in the head or give it skin, but not to keep those awful hands and all the rest of it.

if anyone hasnt read the comments in the front page about this matter,

 i think roguepl sums it up great:

"Maybe Dave should try vomiting his ideas straight into the bros mouths.
That should work."

Talent comes and offers to help you on your movie, and you decline?

He could'a done plenty of other stuff. Sci-fi movies rarely just employ one designer; they get a whole heap, throw 'em in a think tank, and take what comes out best.

I like the way the Pred look is incorporated into the head and mandibles, and the general aggressive look of Dorman's design..they should have used it.

I hate the dreads so much on both designs, but more on the ADI design. Giger would of done it justice though, but unfortunately he hates Fox, and probably hates Predator too lol.
