HELPING YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR FIGURE(S)!


Inaccurate Machiko description

by dagoth_jeff
(Balmora, Morrowind, Tamriel)

"Machiko is a Human Warrior who has been recognized by the Scar Predator who have given her the scars on her face, mask and Alien head shield.
As a result she has been given the Predator's strengths and weapons to follow their mission to guard and fight against the Aliens."

This makes no sense and is not accurate. "Human warrior" is an odd title, for starters. She was a human. Who or what is a "Scar Predator?" She doesn't have "scars" she has an acid marking. On her FOREHEAD. She never had that spear and alien head shield. She was hated by her fellow predators. So she wasn't "given their strength." Did a non-English speaker write this description? "Guard and fight against the aliens" is wrong. Machiko was Japanese. This figure looks half white/half black. You tried too hard to copy the movie, and you ruined it. Hopefully you come out with a "special edition" that makes her the right way. You should have just advertised this as an Aliens Versus Predator Movie collectible.

Hi Jeff,

Many thanks for your comments, although you're not wrong in what you say the write-up for the Machiko does say that she is:

"Inspired by the female character from the AVP comic this is an original character designed by the team at Hot Toys and was ."

and is NOT a replica of the original.

Also a Human warrior is just that, a human warrior as opposed to an alien warrior or predator warrior.

And thirdly the Scar predator was first introduced in the AVP movie alongside the Celtic Predator and based on the Scar character from the AVP comics.
