When Funko announced that they'd be teaming with Super7 to mass produce and distribute the 3.75" ReAction line, it seemed fan dreams of owing toys in the style of Kenner's 1977 Star Wars figures across both classic and contemporary pop culture licenses were going to come true. Little did anyone know just HOW true.

The Predator Wolf features a face with a horrifying extended jaw, plus a diecast mask and a host of spears and other weapons. Click through for a closer look at both AvP S.H. MonsterArts.

Arriving at the convention this July at Funko booth 5343 will be four metallic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, two blood-splattered The Walking Dead characters, plus both an Aliens Xenomorph and a Predator leaking green blood.
In America there is a place called New York City. And in New York City is a place called Bryant Park. And in Bryant Park is a place called Metal Park. And in Metal Park are all the greatest wonders of the world! Using scrap and pieces of old cars and motorcycles and employing some metalworking techniques that we will never, ever understand, artist Pairoght Jarusuwan has created metallic versions of some of pop culture's most popular geek icons that are quaint in their simplicity yet also breathtaking in their immenseness. Among Jarusuwan's creations, which range
What did the Predator say to the otter? In all likelihood, it probably didn't say anything - it simply flipped up its shoulder-mounted laser cannon and blew the poor creature to smithereens. But in an alternate universe, the Predator said something to the effect of, "Hey, Otter, let's join forces and have ourselves a baby, dig?"
Thus, the Predotter was born.
