Arbitor Predator by Jin-Saotome Arbitor Predator by Jin-Saotome
Here's my first crack at all new Predator figures. Using the NECA Predators body base I sculpted a brand new helmet, added armor from various sources, refitted existing armor, and came up with the Arbitrator class of Predator. They're the 'law enforcement' of the predator homeworld according to the book. Preds here was hand painted, every inch with all sorts of washes, highlights, metallics, you name it and I probably used that technique. Whew! His scimitar was made out of a Spy Monkey Demon Blade sword hilt and an old AvP blade.

Here's the full strip with all the different angles.

Very flashy but impractical armor (not criticizing you just the designer). A yautja going after another yautja would want very heavy and strong armor, to repel attacks from yautja weaponry. This guy is just asking to be gutted

Fits very well into the Predator world, especially as the Arbitrator. He even looks more clean and proper for the yautja race, like an authority figure. The armor, painting, everything is just perfect. You say you sculpted the helmet? Wow... That is almost hard to believe. It's probably the coolest part.

Hey Jin I don't know if you've heard of a forum called the hunters lair but we are a predator costuming forum and just general predator fans and I can you I think the rest of the guys would love to see your pred customs there is even a whole section dedicated to figures and customs
So stop buy and have a look round and deffo post this build it's a great design mate I love the custom bio and I know the others would too

A strange combination of Goa'uld, Egyptian, and Roman design motifs with a decided Elephant theme. Looks cool.

Definitely agree with the Goa'uld/Egyptian. That was my first thought upon seeing it, was that it looked like something heavily inspired by Stargate. Which isn't a bad thing, I love Stargate.
