    @Xenomorphine I don't think that would be a problem for a predator.  If you're referring to the one in the second movie, then I think that was because he was injured.  After all, the one Dutch encountered didn't have trouble breathing.

    I had the impression that doing it on a prolonged basis might cause problems, like how we can breathe in poor air quality, but that it's probably not wise to always be doing so.

    Otherwise, why do their masks always cover the mouth and have an air seal?

    To use it in air-less environment. Ahab can have another mask to survive in suxh conditions. Another point to theory that we can use similar gas mixture was shown in Predators (not best source I know). Classic was hanging there God now how long, without his mask. Superpredators had no air seal (Classic haven`t had one either...) and himans were breathing quite ok. out there, but as I said it`s not the best source.
    I can't believe I never noticed that in 'Predators'.

    Maybe it is addresed in the book itself. I wouldnt be surprised there was a story point he enters airless environment and special retractable  panel cover his mouth. Predators love retractable things ;)

    the weaknesses of the figure are that it is P1 body with  modified head,and really crappy looking mask.


    Sure...but the spear is fine. The standard spear/combi-stick is mainly a stabbing weapon. Ahab seems to be wielding a combi-glaive capable of inflicting devastating cuts. There's nothing wrong with it. It might clash with that poster's personal taste for whatever reason...but I don't get why he's calling it a "lazy", "goofy" design. It's a classic Yautja weapon found in multiple sources

    Yeah-and he wear it as a shoulder armor piece-seems quite possible that it is not working-so he made it into a shoulder armor
    Well the lack of mouthplate/piece makes the masks look...crappy in my taste.
    Overal the Ahab figure is a big fail of Neca, countless repaints and resusage of old molds...am waiting for AvP new ones....

    Weapon looks what i always imagined predator naginata would look like. Basically P2 style spear with more elaborated blade piece. As for mask it is never really stated in the films Preds cannot use our air. AvP elder's mask also had no face panel so I don't have problem with it.

    Predators can breath earth air without masks- like Anytime-but they get tired quicker.
    Pussyface after the injuries would probably collapsed without "predatotr air"

    Neca doesnt care-so they made such a crappy figure-but Hardcore collectors will buy this garbage either way.

    I am really dissapointed in Neca.

    Are you kidding? It's a lazy recycle of the combistick with a goofy blade attached.

    What's goofy about the blade? It looks Yautja-ish/"Predatory" if you will

    It's simply based on this piece of art:

    No one was complaining about the goofy blade when the teaser art came out. The figure's weaknesses are its proportions and the mask
