A production-made Yautja Predator bio-mask from Stephen Hopkins' sci-fi action sequel Predator 2. The City Hunter (Kevin Peter Hall) wore its bio-mask while chasing lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) through the concrete jungle of 1997 Los Angeles.
This mask, originally developed by Stan Winston Studios, was cast and finished by Creature Effects Inc. during the production, but ultimately unused for the film. It is cast in fiberglass, painted gold, then heavily distressed and darkly patinated. The eyes are covered in double layers of plastic mesh.
While often mistakenly attributed as a "stunt" helmet, this helmet was cast from Winston's hero helmet mold. It exhibits surface cracks and spidering from age, and has small holes around its perimeter where industrial staples previously held a rubber mask (unrelated to the Predator franchise) to the helmet. Despite this, the helmet remains in good overall condition. Dimensions: 24" x 14" x 10" (61 cm x 36 cm x 25 cm)
Estimate: $10,000 - 15,000
Item size - 20" x 12" x 7" (50.8cm x 30.48cm x 17.78cm)
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
