NECA’s Thermal Vision Fugitive Predator Hits Target

The latest Predator figure from NECA is out in stores – a Thermal Vision Fugitive Predator based on the titular creature from 2018’s The Predator. This one is exclusive to Target stores in America – it’s priced at $26.99 and is in a collector friendly window box. It won’t come to the UK until at least May 2019 – it’s available to preorder on Forbidden Planet for £33.99.

The guys over on Toyark are the first to get their hands on the new Predator figure and have posted a review of it along with a plethora of great photographs. The paintwork is outstanding and even surpasses the Thermal Predator Poster that Fox released.

    Regarding the masks on their own: It is mostly quite easy to remove, I have also removed the masks from several (including Cracked Tusk, Chopper ect.) mainly for ease for painting customs, making a mask display wall. I have used a couple of small screwdrivers to lever the masks off - you have to be careful and patient, but its worth it.
      doesn't that cause a lot of unnecessary damage? I let hot water do all the hard work.

    I am LOVING this set and This newer version of Bad Blood is one of my favorite preds now. The paint apps and the accessories in the set are fantastic. I love the spotting pattern on the feet and head of Enforcer so much that I have him displayed without his mask.

    Hah, that's a really slick idea, nice job!

    How did you get Cracked Tusk's mask by itself?

    Boil and pop. If I had to guess.

    Confession:

    I've never read a standalone Predator
    comic/novel, are any at the same tier
    as Alien- The Cold Forge or Labyrinth?


    I don't think so, no. But what is?

    For novels, i agree whith what has been said, Turnabout,South China Sea and to a lesser extend Flesh and Blood were great reads IMO. Especially South China Sea.

    For the comics, i like the recent Predator:Hunters series, and some of the old school ones.
    The original trilogy about Dutche's brother was nice and an insight what a Predator franchise with a recurring Arnold could have been.
    I also like Big Game, Captive and to an lesser extend Hell come Walkin' and Nemesis. The last two mostly because of the historical setting.
    Bad Blood is a favorite of mine too and is a good read if you look past some of the design choices, like the Bad Blood's nipple piercings without nipples or the concept of Predator Cops( I like to pretend it was just a survivor that wanted revenge for some killed relatives or friends ;))

    What all of the Predator comics have in common IMO, especially the classic ones, is an exaggerated amount of gore and a certain "schlockiness".
    So that may not be to everybody's taste.

    Yes. Unfortunately.
    I've went through
    the reasons before.
    I don't know if this
    is the thread for it.
     
    I looked him up,
    Enforcer Predator right?

    I'd consider that a star
    of a sort, one spike in
    each diagonal and one
    up the middle. (Nearly)
    And yeah, aside from
    the mask and the
    colouration, the design
    is identical to Anytime.

    Kinda lame, tbh-
    Fugitive's design seems
    more appropriate for a
    Predator "Enforcer"
    /Police Officer.

    why do you type it like that?

    It is incredibly frustrating to read on either device for everyone else. The mobile auto-formats it to fit the screen, and it results in a lot of needless scrolling.

    It's that sorta thing,
    that really puts me
    off- comics are a
    primarily visual
    medium.

    Not that there's
    no excuse, time
    constraints are
    often a factor.
    But even so,
    I'd rather spend
    my finite time on
    something really
    special.

    Paper Girls
    for instance.

    the spikes curve enough that I'd never really associated them with a "star", but to each their own.

    As for cribbing from Anytime's design, that's common in the comics (unfortunately).

    That legitimately explains a lot (not in a bad way). Yes, a lot of them are really cool. But some of them are terrible. Depends on your likes and dislikes. I love the Fire and Stone/Life and Death comics. Those are a must read in omnibus format.

    In all seriousness, how was this crossover? I never read it. I've been slowly getting into the Predator EU and I find it's a lot like Star Wars...the better have been in the comics, books, and games.

    If you are up for crossovers in general, give it a shot.
    It is one of the best, if not the best of the predator crossovers that don't involve aliens.
    It also has two sequels, If you want more after reading the first one.

    Agree on the EU part. I love a lot of the predator comics/novels and would take movie versions of them over predators/The Predator anyday.

    Those words tickled my fancy. Agree wholeheartedly.

    It's my favorite. But seriously, don't try sequels. Not near the original.

    I think most consider South China Sea to be the best, it is for me. But that one got quite expensive. Turnabout is a good written novel but I didn't like the portrayal of the predators. I like the Predator 2 novel more than the movie. If it Bleeds anthology was great. For comics, I liked Bad Blood, best portrayal of a bad predator. I got Flesh and Blood but still haven't read it, but Hicks seems to have liked it.

    Predator: South China Sea is fantastic, but good luck getting a copy as it's been out of print for like a decade. I wish Titan would get off their ass and reprint the DH Press 'Predator' novels like they did with the Alien novels - the first few Predator novels are "ehhh", but South China Sea is the best Predator EU material ever written.

    The Predator Deluxe Assassin figure (and I think its quite possible we'll get a 2nd non armored release, but we will see.)

    Could someone post screenshots or something of what "armored" vs "non armored" means in this context?
    Here you go

    Thanks!

    Between the two, I'd pass on an un-armored version - it's just a lot less visually interesting.
