Neca Big Red by mangrasshopper Neca Big Red by mangrasshopper
Here is my custom "Big Red" Predator from the Short film- Batman :dead end.
It is a 1/4 scale NECA Predator 1 figure that I repainted and customized.
I altered the bio helmet and made the belt.
Also added quills, straps, ties, beads, skulls, and gave him his 2 trademark swords.

Stands 19" tall.

Joe, you are like a God amongst us collectors and this proves my thoughts exactly! Amazing work bro. What did you make the belt out of? I'm thinking about making a custom Big Red out of a spare Hot Toys P1.

How much would it cost for you to custom make a Hot Toys P1 into a big red for me? Just thought I'd ask. I wanted to do that myself but I don't have the type of talent or skill you have.

Sexy oxblood Predator!!!! A supper nittypicky. Id like to see some slightly more garnet hues airbrushed in the helmet shadows.since the red there seems more primary.
