Before Stan Winston brought us the iconic Predator suit we've been used to seeing since 1987, action movie star of the 80s Jean-Claude Van Damme was at one point going to play the role of the intergalactic alien hunter. Van Damme left the project early on however due to a number of factors (you can read more about it HERE and even see a video of the suit in action) but after Van Damme's departure, the suit for the then titled "Hunter" was remastered and the Predator design was improved.

Although the original Hunter costume never saw action on film, NECA Toys have blended this unused concept with the contemporary design into one, incredible figure! Check out some images below and more info from NECA:

To commemorate the release of over 100 different Predator figures comes the very first original design and concept by NECA, the Alpha Predator!

In place of the traditional tech, gadgets, and armor worn by other yautja, the Alpha’s attire takes on a more insect-like appearance; a subtle homage to the original 1987 Predator design. Standing at 8” tall with over 30 points of articulation, the Ultimate Alpha Predator is an entirely new sculpt kitted out with an array of accessories including a removable mask, hook, gauntlets, and 3 pairs of interchangeable hands. Classic Predator weapons such as the wrist blades, staff, and shuriken, have been reimagined to fit his unique theme.

Deluxe Ultimate Packaging with new artwork by Jason Edmiston and an original origin story!

NECA's Alpha Predator figure will ship out June 2020!

I think it would be interesting to see them Introduce this Earlier Design into a Future Predator Movie as another ALIEN Species... obviously the Concept/Idea would need some Altering to take into account Advancements with Tools/Technology/Special Effects.
