I. Must. Have. This. Skull.


This is so cool.  Wonder how much it is going to cost. 
I can picture this on my shelves towering over my animal skull collection.  Oooh. 

Quoted from the November 2010 issue of 'ToyFare' mag - pg. 19: 
"This isn't one of those Johnny-come-lately Predators from the newest film, tis is pure Classic Predator.  And he's dead.  Ponder his mortality (and yours!) with this replica Predator skull from Sideshow's partnership with KNB EFX Group, who did the effects for Predators.  It stands 17-inches tall and will surely scare away intruders, visitors and anyone else who happens to pass by." 



Wantwantwantwantwantwantwantwantwantwant.
As a bonus, the mag also had a pic of the unmasked Berserker Predator.  


This would look awesome next to the skull. 
They didn't list any specific release date or where to buy.  I'd guess Toys R Us, because they carried the other Pred figures.  I still kick myself for not buying the Falconer when I had the chance.  I had it in my hand and put it back.  Stupid, stupid.  

AND...

Look at how pretty this Optimus is! 



Made by Sideshow, the mag says it's a statue, but no other details of ship date or price or even the size were available at press time.
It looks better in the mag pic, it's incredibly detailed and the colors pop.  I really like how movie verse OP looks.   This would be cool to have.  
Did I mention that I really want that Pred skull?   
I enjoy ToyFare magazine, I should renew my subscription.

Wow, they are pricey! Thanks for popping my bubble. :(

Well, OP is right out, but I shall have to consider the Pred.

Yes - a Bad Ass Woman needs a Bad Ass Skull.
Too bad it's so expensive. That requires a lot of thought and finagling.

I knew you were busy with the move and stuff, and since they didn't get returned, figured had arrived safely. Glad you're happy.

Thanks for looking that up - I hadn't looked for any info yesterday, and now I see both are extremely costly.
I certainly don't think OP is in my future - if I want to spend and waste that amount of $$, I'd rather rent a Lambo for a day for BotCon.
