A Predator miniature from Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2004 sci-fi action film AVP: Alien vs. Predator.
During an archaeological expedition in Antarctica, a team of scientists and soldiers finds themselves caught in the middle of a battle between two fearsome alien creatures.
Miniatures were used in the film for more complex special effects sequences. Predator miniatures were used in a number of scenes, including the scene in which Lex (Sanaa Lathan) and the Predator Scar (Ian Whyte) escape the exploding temple.
Legendary special makeup effects creator and four-time Academy Award-winner Stan Winston conceived the original design for the Predator when working on John McTiernan's sci-fi classic Predator. His legacy was continued by his former collaborators, Alex Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr., who created a wide array of alien creatures alongside the talented artists of Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc.
This miniature is made predominantly of resin fibreglass, with plastic armour and resin skull trophies. The skin is textured with reptilian scales and bumps, and is hand-painted to create a realistic appearance. The armour has been intentionally distressed, giving the impression that it is well-used in battle. The miniature is accompanied by the Predator's iconic mask, made of resin and painted faux silver to create the appearance of metal.
Since production, it has been secured to a wooden base for display. The piece has some wear from production use and age. It remains in an excellent condition.
Materials: Wood, Resin, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
