NECA Reveals First The Predator Figure – Fugitive Predator

As expected, NECA have fully revealed their first Predator figure from Shane Black’s upcoming Predator film. Titled “Fugitive Predator”, this is the same Predator we see throughout the new The Predator trailer. He has yellow skin with red patches around his body while is armour is grey with golden parts.

The figure stands at over 8″ tall and features 30 points of articulation. There are two interchangeable heads with masked and unmasked versions, interchangeable forearms and hands, various wristblades and a shoulder cannon.

    Damn. Neca can really make predator figures out of anything.

    I'm still waiting from the ones from AVP2, they had some really cool designs in the game, but at least they made m'boy Scarface.

    Somebody should ask Neca on Twitter why they can't offer their figures like Fugitive and Ahab for $25.99 or what not on Amazon with a prime account like i see Diamond, McFarlane, Mattel, Hasbro, and DC Collectibles figures for MSRP prime with no shipping?
    What's keeping you?
    He doesn't want to get blocked by Randy. :P
    And it is so hard to set up a clone account how, exactly?
    who is randy and why would they block his account for asking a question.

    I don't have a Twitter account, just regularly check in for Neca news.
    Would love them to fix their shipping issue, I'd LOVE to buy from Neca direct if it didn't add about 40% of the item's cost additional via shipping.
    Why would Randy ban me for asking that? Was that sarcasm? Wouldn't he just as easily...I don't know...not reply to the post and show it to people? Maybe I don't fully know how Twitter works.

    Randy Falk is the head guy at NECA and he also runs their Twitter account. He's got a bit of an ego and doesn't take criticism well.
    I don't see how asking about distribution would be seen as ban worthy.
    It's criticism, therefore it's ban-worthy. :P

    Even if you've made it obvious the criticism is meant to be constructive.

    Oh well.

    Just preordered through a retailer in the Netherlands.

    That's unfortunate.

    Someone could do with telling him that Aliens should at least be able to look up whilst running on all fours, as they do half of the time.

    Series 18 (the Machiko wave) is finally on Neca's official release calendar! A full year's delay is finally over! Scheduled for release on 10/29/18. So are the ultimate Xenos.

    This may be a noob question but the neck peg is stuck in the masked head, how do I get it out

    Was this with The Fugitive? Like you were switching heads and the peg came out with the head instead of staying in the body to use with the other head? If it were me, I'd take a microwave safe cup, put water it in, heat it in microwave until boiling (the cup I use is pretty large and it takes 3:00 or more minutes to get bubbly and boiling). Put the head in there to soften it up for 3 minutes or so. Then I'd take a fork and put the peg between the prongs of the fork and slide it out. Then put the body in the hot water and slide the peg in there when its soft enough.
    And moving forward, when swapping heads. Hold the plastic park on the neck tight so it helps keep it in the body.



    I realize I posted this in the wrong thread...

    Yeah manufacturing problems with their factories in China were apparently the main cause of all the delays. Either way I'm glad they've supposedly sorted all that out now and the Dark Horse wave is finally on the horizon. I've really got to try and get those Broken Tusk and Machiko figures when I can.

    They never remotely looked like strands of hair did they though?

    It was just a nickname, so call it whatever you want. I just find them more interesting than Predator's dreadlock-like-appendix.

    Quote from: The Old One on Sep 20, 2018, 08:34:12 PM
    Regardless of whether it's born from a Predator or not- the Alien should not have hair, or anything resembling it.

    So Dreadlocks-Free-Predalien?

    It should be approached as if you were making a sequel/reinterpretation of HR Giger's work.

    Take HR Giger's Alien, make it more beastial, crustacean, change/exaggerate the proportions subtly-

    Except for the elegant proportions thing, such a description screams Zerg! ;D (JK)

    It was always spikes like the higher image or an optical illusion like the lower image.

    Add quils to the back- exaggerating the regular back pipes, perhaps even bring back the "Aliens" protrusions from the arms-
    With the idea in mind of the Predator's larger but still humanoid silouette.
    & I believe the idea of the previous pages' artwork of the mandibles acting as a foreskin is an appropriately sexual mockery of the Predator biology.

    Always liked this one from AVP2010, that's as biomechanical as the Predalien have gotten so far. After the fleshy bastards from the previous games this one is good enough. Even Chet was better than those from AVP classic and AVP2.

    Who remembers this ugly thing? Haha.

    What's worse is that nearly all of them make the same mistakes.


  18. The Old One
    I just had a massive argument with my brother over this, essentially he feels it needs to be an Alpha-Male, I don't.


    I think it being extreme is warranted, with changes made.
    Such as removing the human skull and making the face bear more of a resemblance to the Predator's jaw.
    More of an elegant crustacean with biomechanics than an elegant insect.
  19. Kailem
    It's featured in Studio ADI's video of Predalien concepts. Worth a quick look if you haven't seen it before:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txe5nRsvT2s

    I think that particular pic is just a tad too extreme though. Just a bit too far removed from either an Alien or a Predator for my liking.

    I've also always been a fan of Dave Dorman's original design. The dreads we ultimately got on AVP:R's Predalien never bothered me, but I completely understand why some hate them. I think Dorman's more slicked-back look is a nice compromise that acknowledges that particular aspect of the host without being just full-on "they have dreads too".

    Of course I feel like the only design feature you really need to carry over is the mandibles, even if it's just on the bottom jaw, so they're also not something I need to see in any form in any given Predalien design.
  20. The Old One
    I believe Shaun Noetle's design was headed in the right direction, excluding the quils on the back of the head.

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/20071029.jpg

    I can appreciate the body of Dave Dorman's, but I don't appreciate the head one ounce.

    https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.scified.com%2Fu%2FScreenshot_20161025-202321.png&hash=f3432ce6b0498f49be076949e211cba483fec72f

    I really admire this head-foreskin idea, although again- quils on the back of the head are unnecessary.
