Arnold Schwarzenegger may have called the Predator species a group of ugly... well, an ugly lot, but with the new Funko Pops released for The Predator — Shane Black’s upcoming reboot of the sci-fi action franchise — there’re some reveals that are too cute even for his grumpy one-liners.
We’re talking about the Predator Hounds. Alongside a few figures called “Fugitive Predator” and “Assassin Predator” (is this movie about a Predator so bad he’s considered a criminal on the Predator world?) are these cute Predator puppies, which will no doubt be used like prison guard dogs to hunt down the fugitive -- and any human that gets in the way. We'd think the big-screen versions will be a bit scarier.
