We've seen this mini already, but here's a much closer look.

Exactly. He was in Predator, but overall AvP seems more board gamey, probably because it has multiple board games already. Anyway this joke has gone on long enough.

I like the Freeze mini!

Wasn't he meant to cameo at the end of AvP Requiem after they recover the weapon, but he turned it down?

Yeah, he's got the Injustice problem without it, looks too much like Captain Cold.

If I remember correctly he doesn’t have one in New 52. He has bare arms to and can freeze people by touching them.

Indeed. I'm quite sure there is also a navel under the freeze tubes.

Oh, so he's now an Icicle clone? New 52 doesn't have a perfect record on character redesigns. Oh well, it's a good candidate for an alternate sculpt stretch goal.

I stand corrected. Looks like he does pick up the dome at some point. I'm just thinking of the first few comics I guess.

Yeah exact that's the other universe he was referring to. Monolith already did that game.

Nope he was suggesting jokingly that since Conan and Batman both have Arnold, the next game from Monolith would also be a cinematic world involving him (AvP)

Fun fact: Arnold's first big film role was playing Hercules, so he also ties into Mythic Battles: Pantheon.

Other fun fact: Hercules doesn't belong in MBP because that's a Roman name, and MBP uses the Greek names for all of the gods. Hercules should be Heracles in it.

I really like this miniature. Looks like he just froze someone and is thinking "what a useless insect"
About the story, new 52 modified his story a bit, i think it's not his wife, just a subject of research that he got obsessed...

That guy has a big head. Looks like The Brain. Also needs glass or something on top, otherwise just Captain Cold.

Point retracted then. I don't actually have the game. I just read a discussion of it where they used the wrong name. Thank you for the correction.

I agree! That's a pretty awesome model. Although, it would be even cooler and more accurate if there were a glass helmet.

Maybe we can get a little plastic dome sized to fit that we can glue on, as a stretch goal
