The third reason? The Predator himself of course. Thanks to the team at Man at Arms, you can learn how to forge your own Predator blades and stalk Special Forces teams in the jungle without the help of alien technology.
In the latest episode of Reforged, Man at Arms not only created perfect replicas of the blades themselves, they took it a step further. They also fabricated the gauntlet to house the blades, as well as a spring-loaded mechanism to extend them, just like in the films.
I am a fan of the extreme detail the team took to make the gauntlet look as spot-on as possible, from the molding of the blade, to the aging of the metal for the wrist guard, giving it that “I just shot Jesse Ventura through the heart and I am nowhere near finished with you people” look.
You can check out all of Man at Arms’ other creations on their YouTube channel here.
So what say you? Are you headed to Etsy to see if they are available for purchase? Do you still get weirded out when you realize Bill Paxton was in Predator 2? Let me know on Twitter or in the comments below.
