This is a nice collection! I pulled Scar, a Predator with a distinctive helmet design! The body is similar to other Titan vinyl figures, but the head sculpt is uniquely a Predator - complete with helmet and dreads. The shoulder cannon is attached to the head, too.
The paint job on the body is impressive - there are lots of paint applications and decorated details bringing the alien's armor and skin to life, even with bits on the back. The toes look like painted boots, the knees are specially decorated, and it doesn't look like they skipped any significant details either. For a plain humanoid body with paint, this turned out particularly well.
The figure's hands can easily grip the included spear, which is a handy original sculpt bagged separately from the figure itself. It's pretty soft, so it shouldn't snap or break easily. The detail is excellent, and it's about the right size for the tiny figure's body.
The oversized head has a familiar scar pattern - made with Alien blood - and the familiar dreads coming out the back end. The hollow vinyl figure head gives off a weirdly familiar smell, so if you owned cheap vinyl toys as a kid - remember when those were cheap? - this might smell familiar. The silver deco is great, and I love the texture on the helmet as well as the mask. The hair isn't particularly revelatory, but it's still nicely done for a part of the figure you'll probably mostly ignore.
This is a pretty impressive little figure - it's not particularly cheap for the size, but this 3-inch figure does have little surprises like a painted flesh chin under that helmet. It's something nobody would notice, but Titan painted it - and that's certainly praiseworthy. The "Versus" wing of these franchises is largely considered to be the worst, but the creature designs are still awesome and these figures are nothing to sneeze at. Most of the figures are creatures, and the designs are certainly worth a gamble or two if you're in to this sort of thing. Well, maybe not the egg. I like the rest of what I see though, and I'm glad to have this one in my office today.
