Yesterday, Fox revealed that they would be doing something Predator-related at this year’s Comic-Con. Those hoping for a new entry in the franchise were probably somewhat disappointed to learn that the reveal is 1987’s Predator coming to 3D Blu-ray. Hopefully, it will look better than this nightmarish transfer. And speaking of plastic-looking people, Comic-Con attendees will have the chance to be part of a very cool promotion where they can get a 3D-printed figurine of themselves as a victim of the Predator. The 3D-printing technology will take a scan of your head and then turn it into the Predator holding your severed noggin. However, this is only available to those who pre-order the 3D Blu-ray, which will be available as a limited edition “Predator Head” version for $129.99 and a “headless” version (that still comes with the figurine) for $49.99. It seems like you’re paying more for the figurine than the movie, but admittedly, it’s a very cool figurine.
Hit the jump for more details, and how you can “Hunt the Predator” to get to the front of the line (although there’s no explanation of how you’ll know it’s the Predator and not someone just cosplaying as the Predator). Predator on 3D Blu-ray will be released in December. Figurines will be shipped out following Comic-Con. The booth will be open from Thursday to Sunday.

Booth #3528 Entirely Devoted to the Schwarzenegger Sci-Fi Classic
WHAT: Nothing like it has ever been at Comic-Con before… Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is bringing an iconic franchise to San Diego as PREDATOR hunts for prey on the convention floor.
In a first-of-its-kind activation at Comic-Con, fans can enter booth #3528 and have their photo taken with state of the art cameras courtesy of 3D Systems. Their image will then be used to make them the victim as a customized figurine is created using 3D Systems 3D printing technology that features the Predator alien holding the fans’ severed head!
The figurine is only available to fans that purchase the PREDATOR Blu-ray 3D, available exclusively for pre-order at Comic-Con and packaged in a limited edition Predator head for $129.99. Fans can also receive the figurine with the purchase of a “headless” Blu-ray 3D for $49.99.
Additionally fans will get a first look at the all-new 3D transfer of the film before it arrives on Blu-ray 3D later this year as they enter the jungle that is ruled by the ultimate warrior that came from another planet.
Attendees can also participate in the “Hunt the Predator” challenge. Fans who find the Predator, take a photo and upload it to their social networks with the official hashtag “#HUNTthePREDATOR” will be entered to receive a front of the line pass at the Predator 3D booth for an exclusive 3D printed figurine.
The PREDATOR Blu-ray 3D will be shipped to all those that pre-order at Comic-Con when it is officially released in December. The custom figurine will be shipped following the convention.
