NECA Unveil Comic Focused Predator Series 18!

Having teased a Broken Tusk figure in the past, NECA have now unveiled their upcoming Predator Series 18 and it’s all comic focused! We’ll be seeing Broken Tusk and Machiko Noguchi from the very first Aliens vs. Predator comic series (although the Machiko is based on her appearance in AvP: War) and Hornhead from the more recent Life and Death run!

“NECA’s longest running action figure line continues with an entire series dedicated to Dark Horse Comics Predators! Series 18 features three action figure debuts that are some of the most requested by fans: Hornhead, Broken Tusk and our first female Predator, Machiko!

Hornhead made his first appearance in Predator: Life & Death, and is a great companion piece to the Ultimate Ahab Predator, also from the currently running comics. He utilizes the new Ultimate Predator body, and comes with a removable mask and sword accessory that fits in a sheath on his back. Broken Tusk originates in the classic 1990s Aliens vs Predator comics, and his epic story arc also includes Machiko Noguchi, a human colonist who performs the incredible feat of earning his respect and joining his tribe. Broken Tusk utilizes the new Ultimate Predator body and comes with gun and bladed weapon that measures over 12” in length! Machiko has a removable mask, extra interchangeable hands, and rifle accessory.

We’ve paid close attention to detail to make these as accurate to the comics as possible. Hornhead and Broken Tusk stand 8” tall; Machiko stands 6.5” tall. Each has between 25 and 30 points of articulation. Blister card packaging.”

    We might get more Machiko in time. Randy responded "One at a time my friend..." when asked about the possibility of a Three World War Machiko on Twitter earlier, so I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to lead with a more visually interesting/Predatoresque version of her first that might also appeal to people who hadn't read the comics before they went with a figure based on her original appearance.

    I would've gone for Machiko as she appeared in the original run, personally, but at least these modellers have got her ethnicity correct! It'd just be rad to have a Chigusa uniform and a speeder accessory in my collection. ah well!

    Broken Tusk looks beautiful, though, might have to splash out just this once!

    I love that this whole series is comic focused! I especially love that we get both Broken Tusk and Machiko! Still not a massive fan of the human figures but I love that we get the Predator get-up Machiko and she looks great with the mask on!

    Recently received the AVP Elder, Ultimate Jungle Hunter, and Ultimate City Hunter for my birthday. All pretty sweet! The City Hunter in particular is the figure I've been dreaming of since I started collecting wayyy back in 2010...but the darned thing's opening wrist computer flap is missing! Anyone else have that problem?

    Ah well. So close...

    Contact NECA Customer Service on Twitter.  They'll send you a new arm.  I bought one and the hinge was broken.  They sent me a new arm.

    Thanks! :)

    Just when I think about winding down my Predator collecting, along come those Broken Tusk pics...
