3:09 /

The 404 Show's Jeff Bakalar goes one-on-one with The Predator himself and then gets his head on a real-life action figure!

-What's going on everyone? I'm Jeff Bakalar from cnet.com, host of the 404 Show. I'm here at the Predator 3D booth to celebrate the film's 30th Anniversary. They're releasing a 3D blu-ray and I'm here with the Predator himself. Hi-- he's so great not to kill me to have this interview. And he actually told me, I could call him Roger. So I'm pretty excited about that as well. So, okay those eyes are terrifying. How are you doing? -Good. -He's good. Always good-- all right, he speaks English. That's awesome. So what you can do at the booth here is pre-order the blu-ray or you could pre-order a special edition head. We take his head and have like a 500 to make. If you pre-order it, you're allowed to get an action figure with your head that looks like the Predator has ripped your head off of your body and your spine's is tingling. It's actually look like terrifying. -All right, Jeff. So what am I'm gonna have you do is look right in that center camera and I'm gonna take 8 images simultaneously. Then we're gonna take those 8 images and then by a minute or so, we're gonna process them into a 3-model of your face and throw that on the Predator-- -So, can I make a face, can I?-- -You can make a little bit of a dead face. -Okay. -The face gets really twisted to whatever else. -Yeah. -You'll end up being really twisted on the head. -Yeah. -So we don't want that. -My face is already jacked up enough like-- -All right. So, I'm gonna have you look right in the center camera. Are you ready? 3, 2, 1. Did you see a [unk] go? -Yeah. -Nice. All right. So they're gonna pop up here. -Oh, cool. -We'll see if we can-- oh, that's a pretty solid dead face. All right, so I'm gonna go ahead and process that one. -Okay. So, I just got my photo taken with the 8 cameras over there and now I get to come over here and basically design how my heads gonna look on the action figure. So, I can move it around in this 3D sort of thing. So that's upsetting that I'm completely bald there, but what I'm gonna do is change the hairstyle, I guess. So, okay-- now I got like, kinda like a Barney Rubble thing going on there. I like that. Maybe blue hair? That's pretty fantastic. I don't know about you I'm looking pretty good. Let's see what else-- what other hairstyles. Oh, there you go. I like that. What do you think? Need a little blonde, more realistic perhaps? So check it out. This is what the actual action figures gonna look like. I'm not gonna lie. I kinda do look like that little guy over there and this is really upsetting now that I see my head cut off there. The company putting this together this 3D systems in about 4 to 5 weeks, I'm gonna have my very own so you wanna get in there. It's pretty upsetting but awesome at the same time. So that's it from the Predator 3D booth here in Comic Con. If you're in town, make sure you come by, you can pre-order the blu-ray that's out in December and get yourself an action figure while you're at it. I'm Jeff Bakalar for cnet.com. Thanks for watching.
