Apparently they had Jean Claude Van Damme as the original guy who was going to wear the suit. He apparently was supposed to do a dangerous stunt, and refused, saying that he would break his legs if he attempted to do it. He was fired, replaced with someone else, and the new guy promptly broke an ankle attempting the stunt.
At which point they had Stan Winston come in and redesign the whole thing.
Although, googling this now, I have found a few diff versions of this story, so there's probably a fair amount of BS in each telling.
The stories I read and heard about come down to either Van Damme being a douche bag who would injure stuntmen and stuff. Or that a puny little Van Damme Predator wouldn't have been very impressive or scary next to Arnold, Ventura, Apollo Creed and the rest of the cast.
you gotta have the "rasta dreads" to give it that measure of badassery

Looks a bit like the monster from Dragonfire, an Aliens rip off which would have been the worst Doctor Who episode ever if it hadn't introduced Ace.
