    Yea but dont the licensees view the European/brazilian market separately because Iron studio and Imagenarium arts both have the same scale marvel lines as US based gentle giant and sideshow?

    I think Its the way they distribute or were they are not allowed to distribute to for that matter.

    Good stuff and I've seen it but I really dislike Alien heads without shoulders. They stop being busts and start look like large sausages as one board member mentioned.

    If they have shoulders would love it.

    I already will buy P2 bust because it looks great with shoulders.

    "2nd day of Hollywood Collectors Convention has just started! We are displaying the factory sample of PREDATOR 2 LIFE-SIZE BUST along with Sideshow Collectibles PREDATOR LIFE-SIZE BUST to show the collectors how they look when you display them next to each other.

    We are also displaying NEWBORN 1:3 MAQUETTE REPLICA to see if the collectors would want to add this piece to their collections."

    Still think those sculpted dreads look pretty awful.The cutting/design of the bust is equally as horrible.(as it was on Sideshow's P1 life size bust btw)
    This is a type of bust you'd have expected 10 years ago...in this day and age it looks incredibly outdated.
    The paintjob looks good though.

    It's a sad story when people have no choice by lack of other predator items.

    Great paintjob and dead on accuracy.
    Not worth the money though.
    Bust design looks outdated.

    Seperate dreads,glass eyes and a better overall design would have taken this P2 bust to the next level.
    I'm looking at my masked P1 lsb and it's so obvious to me that only seperate dreads convey the feeling of a true high end collectible.(the reason why the guy in the video is wavering)If it weren't for the awesome paintjob you'd expect to find such lightweight,hollow casts in Chinatown shops for $100.This is the feeling I get when looking at that big bloc of hollow fibreglass.
    By the way the half scale P1 lsb weighs a ton in comparison to the CP 1/1 P2 bust.
    Of course it's all a matter of perspective and people will be very happy with this bust nonetheless as it was taken from the original prop.For many accuracy is all that matters,ergo it's 'good enough'...personally I need something more for 1400/1500 euros.

    Exactly.
    The weight would be of no concern to me aswell if only the bust had seperate,smooth looking dreads and a better overall design.
    That said I think it will be the only chance to have an accurate,well painted life size P2 bust if you want one in your collection.
    It's a damn shame Coolprops didn't go all the way to deliver something special,especially for that kind of money.



    It's striking how much better the dreads are on the SS P1 bust they released more than 10 years ago.
