    I agree. I think NECA is doing a great job making these old favorites feel right at home in a shared universe.

    I'll say this.. some gimmicks work, some gimmicks don't when attempted to be written in-universe.

    In the case of Clan Leader, it works.
    The description feels like something from the days of SD Perry writing the AVP novels such as Prey. I did enjoy those books and this bio for Clan Leader feels like it could be a part of that story.

    Some things end up feeling terribly forced. Thankfully, as you said, this does not.

    I'm... oddly alright with Clan Leader's bio. I'm alright with it, for some reason I can't explain.  :o

    The idea of a Grand Elder is.. actually fitting in terms of the Predator culture and perhaps their government. Although I would've liked it if they mentioned a Council of Ancients, I do see said council being centered around a Grand Elder. I don't have a problem with Clan Leader's bio.  :)

    But wouldn't the lack of light in such an environment eventually evolve these Predators into being albinos?

    I mean, in the cases of Alligators and Crocodiles who have thrived in dark environments where there is no light-- they were eventually losing their pigmentation and even eye-sight since they would've adapted to such an environment. At least, that's what biologist had said in regards to gators and crocodiles if they wound up thriving in said environment like.. a sewer for years, that's what would've eventually happened.

    In the case of Predators, I would've thought that the absence of light would affect their pigmentation to be albino, not translucent. And needing night vision when they have infrared which allows them to see in the absence of light? Well, at least I'm not the only one to point this out.

    I mean the toy is cool and all but was there really a need to explain the gimmick which the original figure had? I mean couldn't they have left it to just the armor? Kind of screams the explanation which NECA tried to give Nightfighter Robocop.

    Mmm that's not exactly how albinism works. Typically in species the gene for albinism is a recessive trait. It isn't dictated by the environment experienced by an organism- at least at first.  Over many many many generations however, IF the gene for albinism was already present in the population, or if a new genetic mutation causing albinism to appear, was suddenly favored by the organism's environment (let's say complete darkness), then more albinos might become more numerous in that population over time, if that mutation conveyed a higher level of success (reproduction), than organisms that weren't albino.

    In "normal" conditions in most animals, albinism is not favored due to increased predation on that animal when it's young (albinos stick out like a sore thumb), or less success hunting prey (prey can see albinos easier than their normally colored counterparts). In addition albinos can be more photo sensitive than normal colored animals causing them to die earlier than animals with melanin which protects them from sun exposure.

    Now, if you get that same population in a dark environment where the above factors wouldn't weed out albinos from the population, then you would probably see an increase in albinos over time.

    In populations that have been living in caves over thousands if not millions of years, we often see reduced or absent eyesight paired with no skin pigmentation. This is an example of "if you don't use it, you loose it." In a dark environment, skin pigmentation and eye sight no longer conveys any benefit, and so genetic mutations which result in reduced eyesight and reduced pigmentation can be favored and thus, these individuals possessing those mutations become more numerous in the population.

    Oy, that was kind of long, sorry.

    Anyways, I'm new to these forums, Hi Everyone!

    I'm super excited for NECA predators series 16 to come out. I already have a shelf with Battle Armor Lost hunting an Endoskeleton, so Spiked Tail's bio works perfectly for me!

    I'm also excited to see the 3rd member of Series 17 on display at NYCC next week. I'm hoping it is Bonegrill or Alien Head from the AVP game. Any other guesses on what it might be?

    Holy shit, they came up with an "in universe" explanation for why Stalker glows in the dark. That's f**king fantastic.

    But it doesnt really make sense.

    If the blood is what we are seeing we would be seeing trails instead of the whole thing glowing.


    Not if the skin is translucent. They're not bleeding, it's their glowing blood showing through their un-pigmented skin.

    Another thing that doesn't make sense is why they would need unparalleled night vision when they see in heat? Total darkness is a problem for us, not Predators. Unless the environment is really cold and they're hunting some cold blooded prey or something.

    I like the figure though, it looks really cool.
  11. Kailem
    Yeah I really love that. Shows they put some real thought into it. Having his skin be translucent allowing the bioluminescent Predator blood to be visible and make him "glow" as an adaptation to living in constant darkness is a great way to explain it.

    I've really been liking these bios Neca has come up with. They definitely give these characters an extra "cool factor."
  12. Mister Skeezler
    NECA should tie the AVP and Terminator universes together. Skynet definitely used Dutch as a template for the T-800 model-101, and tried to eradicate organic life from Earth to ensure the Alien couldn't spread.

    Looks like Neca may be teasing two more figs.
    Lasershot and R'zor

    I've never seen that second one before, was it unreleased?

    Back of box and bio for Spiked Tail:

    I've never really read these bios before but damn, I like the sounds of them hunting some non-organics.

    I like that idea of them hunting non-organics, too. I would love to see that in a comic, or maybe one of the shorts in an anthology book.

    It certainly looks like they are in those pics, but apparently they are going to be on his head:
