The alien monster Predator is on the hunt for San Diego Comic-Con attendees.

To mark the 3-D Blu-ray release of the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring “Predator,” Fox is dedicating a jungle-themed booth to the film and its iconic extra-terrestrial.

“Predator” fans will be able to purchase custom-designed mini-figurines featuring their likeness. Because what fan wouldn’t want to see his or her own decapitated head, spine still attached, being held up by a Predator?

The action figures will be created using photographs of participants (taken at the booth) and 3-D printing. The figurines will be mailed to buyers after the convention. Click through the gallery above for a sneak peek.

The booth will also feature a Comic-Con exclusive “Predator 3D” head as well as the opportunity to preorder the Blu-ray. The release follows last year’s 3-D version of “I, Robot.”

Comic-Con International runs Thursday through Sunday (July 18-21) at San Diego’s waterfront convention center. Some 130,000 professionals and enthusiasts in the realms of sci-fi, fantasy, video games, comics and horror are expected to gather for the annual pop culture expo.

Stay tuned for more Comic-Con updates.

    Damn, I was hoping for a new Predator movie. { Posted from http://www.manlymovie.net }

    Easily the most pointless and disappointing comic con news. Hyping up the Predator franchise, only to have it be a 3d blu ray release. Now the 15 people out there that wasted money on 3d televisions have the opportunity to watch a 3d version of Predator. Out of those 15, maybe one of them is a Predator fan. Good job investing your money, Fox.

    Any way to get one without going to the Con?
