The sitting pose is better. The standing pose looks like "please don't hit me!"

How this for a pose? I think I'll keep him like for a bit, till I can figure out whether he's staying up top permanently or not.

That looks good, but when he landed/took off like that, didn't he have his arms out a bit more for balance?

You could of course pose him in flight mounted horizontally with his arms at his sides and his head looking forward.

You can't tell from that pic, but his left arm is extended to the side with his palm facing down. He's got his right leg on the ground so has then got his fist ready as he doesn't need his repulsor on that side :)

I'll take your word for it! :)

He does look great though, a nice addition to your collection!!

Managed to track down the remaining 3 Predators from the series 1 and 2 releases that i didn't have at prices that didn't require selling multiple organs, first one arrived today, the Predator 2 Guardian :)

Very cool!
You going to have to build more shelves?
Maybe a fog-filled "predator room" with a trophy case like from the movie!!!

Once they all arrive I think I've got enough to set up the ending of Predator 2 - just needs a Danny Glover figure :)

You could say he's hunting down some trophies for his shelf...

I love it when people put stuff up for sale on eBay to finish on a Friday or Saturday night as many potential buyers go out so don't get chance to snipe deals. Take tonight for instance, the hard to find Gort SDCC predator that gets listed on eBay and Amazon to buy for well over £200, and often over £300, and I'd pretty much given up on getting one at a reasonable price, turned up this week on eBay with a finish time at 7:25 tonight. With 2 mins to go out had attached only 2 bids and was at £2 above it's starting price of £60. And a few minutes later when the auction ended I'd won it for only £2 more than that. Very happy getting his of this figure for less than original retail price :)

By mid next week I'll have all 8 of the figures released, albeit without the 2 variant heads for the figure from the first movie. Going to be fun trying to find space to fit all of these in.
