Well, I've a feeling that it's going to be a re-painted Berserker head. Although, they did sculpt up a new head for the "Lost Predator;" but there was a difference between the Hero head and the LH head (stunt P2).
I wish Hot Toys would take some creative license with the Falconer. I think that it'd make it all that much more unique. Who knows really.
To comment on your "non-removeable" helmet statement; for what these things cost, the helmet BETTER come off!! Hahahaha.
I have a feeling that his head will be like Berserkers but the design on it will be unique to Falconer. It is Hot Toys after all, and they do like to very the pred crest designs from pred to pred. And Im sure that the designers of the preds for the movie have an idea of what they want Falconer to look like un-masked anyway.
I hope HT doesn't make the same mistake (coming from a fans perspective) reusing head sculpts. I don't care if it's more cost effective or what. For fans in my opinion it somewhat ruins the uniqueness of the figures.
Each AVP figure should have been given his own head sculpt.
Guardian Predator should have been given a different sculpt. Although HT did manage to pull off a nice alternate grey scale paint up that I can live with.
P2 and Lost don't look the same at all to me. It may just be the paint of course, but I'm pretty sure Lost has different sculpted mandibles and even crown than P2. I'll have to check again more closely.
I voted “Brand new sculpt” I’m sure HT knows how tacky it will be to use the same sculpt thrice, and they are aware that doing such will ruffle a few feathers with buyers. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere…they have put way to much work into theses new figures to ruin them with a cheap ploy such as that…each one of theses figures deserves it’s own distinct head sculpt.
@the lone wolf: Um... that edited colored unmasked image is actually mine. Just sayin'. And it's not that you know what they look like. That picture was simply a GIMP edit I made of a high-res Berserker picture:
The shoulder cannons are still there and everything. Just a little thing I did to see how it'd look if they only repainted the existing sculpt. Purely a prediction.
