Sideshow Collectibles is set to release a PREDALIEN statue based on one of the early concept designs. This one looks more Predator than anything. I still feel that they are always combining the two creatures too equally. If its an Alien it should look like an Alien, but with slight slight Predator features. This design as well as the movie version is fine if it was the result of genetic engineering - a scientific hybrid.

Here's the original concept art from ADI's book "AVP-R: Inside the Monster Shop". (which is actually a pretty cool book if you're into creature shop behind-the-scenes)

Like I said, I'm not a fan of the Predalien designs. The only 2 I've semi-not-hated are these below....The top/left because it keeps the biomechanical aspects (dislike the dreads, tho). The top/right feels more like an Alien, but has Predator attributes - even dreads/tentacles , but aren't over the top and distracting.and like I've said before, I'd just want a normal looking Alien (preferrably from Alien or Aliens) but with small mandibles (above "JimSmash Predalien").

HA! Love the Jim Smash Predalien posts!

And yes, that is really stupid looking. Worse than the crappy movie version.
