Tamashii has created a special page for their upcoming SH MonsterArts Alien VS Predator figures. To kick things off they have provided official images and information for the following:
- Alien Warrior
- Predator Wolf
We first showed you the SH MonsterArts Alien Warrior this past weekend however we now have even more images to share! Both figures are constructed using a mix of PVC, ABS and diecast metal. Both are highly articulated and feature the intricate detail that the SH MonsterArts line is known for.
The premiere release in the series is the Alien Warrior from the 2004 AVP film. In the movie, this sleek re-working of the original Alien design was animated using CG techniques to portray its inhuman sense of balance and motion. The S.H. MonsterArts figure perfectly replicates this on-screen appearance. The joint system has been specially designed to allow dynamic poses without breaking the figure’s distinctive silhouette. The unique head structure is rendered with translucent plastic. Thorough research allowed us to bring subtle organic details that were almost impossible to see on-screen to life in the sculpt, and every effort was made to conceal the joints for a natural appearance. The S.H. MonsterArts edition of the Alien Warrior represents a new pinnacle for Alien action figures.
The second figure in the series is the “Predator Wolf” from the 2007 film “Aliens vs Predator: Requiem.” It represents the “cleaner” Predator sent from their home world in order to defeat the hybrid Alien that appeared at the end of the first film, nicknamed “Predalien.” To honor this fiercely proud Predator, who eschewed cooperation with humans to fight the Aliens on its own, we spared no effort to enhance the detail and poseability of the action figure. A portion of its armor is diecast metal; the weaponry is molded in finely detailed ABS; the body details are PVC; and the famed “dreadlock” hair utilizes flexible material so as not to interfere with posing. This is the ultimate action figure portrayal of the ultimate Predator warrior.
The Alien Warrior is scheduled for release in January with the Predator Wolf following in February. Read on to check out the images!
