I'm still laughing at the thumping noises the dreadlocks make.

Stalker, who presumably attempts to stalk his prey, glows in the dark. During the entire course of his very short life, he could never figure out why the other Predators would have to stop laughing when he came into the room.
No, that's how I say it. People say it like that, Jeff. PredaTOR. I think it's good to call attention to the o or people like think its' predaTER, and why do we have an o if that's what we're going to do, Jeff? So just let me read it the way I want.

I had almost every single one of those toys, ah the memories
i mean, once again this wonderful website has reminded me of a forgotten element of my childhood
The Wild Boar Alien attacks with his head spikes... just like a wild boar! I had that one, plus the Praying Mantis Alien and the Marine who's power armor made him look like an alien.
And the Power Loader. Took a hot nail and blowtorch to that to add some "experience."
Consumer products for children who are restricted from seeing the movies the products are based on. Predator could be understood by kids but Alien is too cerebral for a kid to enjoy; they'd just be confused and bored for long stretches of it.
Yeah, because no kid on earth would be interested by a jet black creature that bleeds acid, is born by ripping out of a guy's chest, rips its way through about a dozen people, and ends up being burned alive by a spaceship's engine.
Don't forget the homemade flamethrowers and sonar device. Or the robot that goes crazy, tries murdering everyone, and gets his head knocked off in a shower of milk. Or the swearing. Or the derelict.
Yeah, that sounds like the worst toy ever.
Adding to Favorites out of spite.
It still is, however, an R rated movie with toys for kids "not allowed" in the theater.
An R rating means that no children are allowed into the theater unless accompanied by a guardian.
Plus, the pothead video store employees don't really give a damn.
In the end, they're only toys. Not cigs or booze.
I had a mess of these things, probably more than any other toy "family" when I was growing up. The best one was the exo-skeleton loader from the movie. Apparently a commercial loader isn't interesting enough because the toy version is bristling with weapons, including a giant missile launcher (with spring loaded missile!) on the top.
I also recall Bishop being recast as the Terminator and Apone dressing like a 5-year-old.

I had the one that exploded and the blue one that squirted water. They were definitely some of the cooler toys I owned as a child.
