NECA Announces Predator Series 17 – Youngblood, Elder and Serpent Hunter

Yesterday, NECA announced their upcoming Predator Series 17. It continues the recent theme of figures from Paul Anderson’s Alien vs. Predator but Series 17 also brings us something brand new, NECA’s first figure taken from Rebellion’s Aliens vs. Predator (2010):

“NECA’s longest running action figure line continues! Series 17 features even more action figure debuts from the Alien vs. Predator movie and video game.

The assortment includes Youngblood and Elder from the 2004 movie, and Serpent Hunter from the 2010 video game. Elder Predator wears a regal soft goods cape with real chain and comes with a removable mask and staff accessory. Youngblood Predator features dual wrist blades and comes with a staff with impaled Xenomorph head. The frequently requested Serpent Hunter Predator (also known as Alien Head Predator) features a unique, Xenomorph-inspired bio mask, dual extendable wrist blades, and sword and shuriken accessories. We’ve paid close attention to detail to make these as accurate to the movie and game as possible.

Each stands 8.25” tall and has over 30 points of articulation. As an added bonus, Elder and Youngblood’s hands and blades are removable and compatible with other AvP Predators. Blister card packaging.”

  1. The Bonus Situation
    ESPECIALLY when it comes to videogames. I think I've played the predator campaign alone, in AVP 2010, about a 100 times. Or like in the Batman Arkham games. Nothing gives me more joy and pleasure in a videogame, then observing heavily armed dudes from atop, planning my tactic, setting up traps with fancy gadgets and then silently picking them off, one by one  ;D

    Super excited about all the Pred reveals from NYCC. Definitely getting Series 16 (except the GITD Stalker), Series 17, and UCH. Very interested in that throne too. Can't wait.

    Predicting that Series 18 (which NECA has said will be comic themed) will be Dachande (which was already teased), Machiko, and Top Knot.
  3. The Shuriken
    I'm hoping that NECA will do the Xenomorph from AVP2010, it's my second favorite version. It's the classic warrior design, but with the long serpentine tail.

    I doubt it. The main reason they're doing the Predators is because they can reuse at least 80% of the elements from their AVP sculpts. An AVP (2010) Alien would require a whole new sculpt, which they probably wouldn't devote to something that niche.

    However, will they skip the specimen 6 character because of that?

    I wasn't really a fan of the multiplayer Predator designs/masks from AVP 2010 to be honest, besides the ones from the films and the Serpent Hunter. But I imagine they'll all be pretty easy to do (the most elaborate one would probably be Lord, though I imagine they could re-purpose the AVP Elder mask for that), so chances are we'll see all of them eventually.

    Also, that skull throne will apparently be available to buy in "spring 2017".

    That is some awesome f**king news!!
    AVP2010 is full of great stuff. It's full of great Predator masks, marines and aliens.

    Other Predators I can think would be awesome to see would be Spartan and Rogue. Besides them you have great options for marines like Tequila, Van Zandt, The Rookie and Kaneko. I'd love to see six, the predalien and the praetorian if they continue with the line.
