NECA Officially Announces The Ultimate Alpha Predator!

First unveiled nearly a year ago at Toy Fair 2019, NECA has officially announced their special 100th Predator figure: the Alpha Predator! One of NECA’s Ultimate line, the Alpha Predator is also NECA’s first completely original Predator design and is inspired by Steve Johnson’s original take on the Predator!

To commemorate the release of over 100 different Predator figures comes the very first original design and concept by NECA, the Alpha Predator!

In place of the traditional tech, gadgets, and armor worn by other yautja, the Alpha’s attire takes on a more insect-like appearance; a subtle homage to the original 1987 Predator design. Standing at 8” tall with over 30 points of articulation, the Ultimate Alpha Predator is an entirely new sculpt kitted out with an array of accessories including a removable mask, hook, gauntlets, and 3 pairs of interchangeable hands. Classic Predator weapons such as the wrist blades, staff, and shuriken, have been reimagined to fit his unique theme.

Deluxe Ultimate Packaging with new artwork by Jason Edmiston and an original origin story!

The Alpha Predator is due for release in the States around June 2020 and will make its way across the pond in the following months. What do you think of NECA’s brand new design?

    I kind of hope holding off on wolf allows them to produce a good body for it. My biggest complaint in the original release (and despite that buying three) was that it really was stiff as far as articulation went. For some of their earliest stuff I hope they knock it out of the park upon re-release.

    Anybody know if the Requiem Alien is getting a re-release or if that's (potentially) coming in 2021?

    Neca has the Alien Warrior and Predalien all ready. They just keep getting delayed. And the Wolf will have a brand new ultimate type body.

    They've had the sculpt and accessories all prototyped since 2017.

    It's not looking likely.

    First it was 2019 (back in 2017)
    Then it became 2020.

    Now it could possible be 2021.

    I am so goddamn annoyed by this. Beyond the Alpha, and Lost Tribe which will be released throughout the year, how much more do they have planned that doesn't allow the Wolf to slip in?

    There must be a lot of figures planned if they still can't get Wolf in, and I suspect Hunting Grounds is to blame. They must be making figures.

    I think it looks wicked,like what a predator would look like before they reached the stars. The homage to the OG/River Ghost design is perfect!
  5. SuperiorIronman
    Had to go a ways back in the thread for this but if Neca is releasing the Lost Hunters for the 30th does that mean this is connected to that? The mask doesn't look like armored Borg's and it isn't Scout's for sure. I guess one of the Lost Hunters didn't have a mask and now they're getting one? I know a few of them didn't but I just can't place which one this is for if that's the case.

    The news of Ultimate releases of the Lost Tribe makes my inner fanboy scream "YAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!"
    But my wallet screams "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" (like Darth Vader in Revenge of the Sith)

    As I already own the previous releases of the Lost Tribe - I'll will keep the new Ultimate versions of the Lost Tribe, and customize the original versions into some new Predators (that will be fun).

    Are they doing a 1/4 scale of this? I recall it being HUGE when I saw it at SDCC. The website only mentions a 7" figure.

    No matter what Predalien neca release I’m going to hope that the dreads are easily removable. That’s limy main gripe about most designs, the jaw carrying over is more than enough to sell you on what the host was.
  9. Fiendishly Inventive
    If I remember correctly AVP Classic's PredAlien is a genetic hybrid created by humanity, as for design' Monolith's AVP got the "face" design right apart from the fact the inner jaw never moved. AVP 2010 got the rest right, apart from the fimbria.
  10. Predalien91
    On the subject of the Predalien really want to see a figure or line based on the AVP Gold Edition Predalien. Really hoping Neca makes it happen. I wouldn't put nothing past Neca, they're giving way more then the Mcfalane line had ever.

    Hi   Neca ; and All true  fans .... Come on !!! Wolf , they did it ( 4 " differents ")    Predalien ... They did it..... The lost tribe , they did it.  And designs of wolf and scar is so terrible ( not the actions figures ... )  These movies are terrible.           Don't you want something new ?  Don't you want something fresh.  The same stuff again and again ... Why ??   Like Star Wars !!! 150, 200 Vader action figures ..... I know human figures don't sell nearly as well  as creatures but ; it is just about selling Neca ?  All is about selling and box office , million and billion !!!!
    What about art , passion , creation  ..... What kind of fan don't want to buy Lambert meeting  Tony pope and his truck ..... A diorama with the city hunter and king willie in a dark street in LA  Harrigan on the roof with transparent predator   Leona in the subway with City Hunter and all the characters of Predator are great too   Only 3 about it. Predator , Dutch ( Schwartzenneger ) ...too many of it ....( easy ... The same base ....)  and Shane black (sdcc figure)( the guy who killed the franchise in 2018.... Thanks mr black )   Yes yes yes Neca       We are waiting for NEW action figures about movies ,with dioramas         Regards for the true fans.

    The Requiem Predalien is probably the only one we're going to see. Unless they decide to dive into AVP 2010, which while that Predalien does have some issues it's still better than AVPR's.

    Given how NECA have done various game dips and concept pieces, I'm hoping they'll dive into some other interpretations of the PredAlien too. Give me Dorman's PredAlien!

    Hallelujah!
  13. Voodoo Magic
    Hi. Ok ... Why not .... But but rather than making weird predators figures and comic book predators figures .... Why not to make characters from predator 2 .... Harrigan , king willie ,peter keys ,Leona ,lambert,dany ,tony pope ,El Scorpio etc ... Etc ...think about it Neca please. I'm a big big Predator fan but  Kind of tired of these ugly comic book 's action figures   So much stuff to do with predator 1&2  and what about predator 1 characters ...... They are great too    Thank you Neca to do that soon .... Not a option .... I'm waiting for it ......

    Even a Tony Pope figure?  I want what he's having! Sign me up!!  ;D

    Years ago I would say there's no market for them, but now after seeing a toy line come out this year for 1987's box office bomb Masters of the Universe that only made 17 Million worldwide, I'll never say never.

    There's also the Predator 2 anniversary stuff that probably took priority over Wolf. I want Wolf but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't prefer some retooled Lost Tribe and Hunting Grounds stuff first.

    The Requiem Predalien is probably the only one we're going to see. Unless they decide to dive into AVP 2010, which while that Predalien does have some issues it's still better than AVPR's.
  15. SuperiorIronman
    Wolf probably got pushed back in favor of the Kenner and comic Predators both of which people tended to gravitate towards. There's also the then recent film and people gravitated toward Fugitive so another variant on that seems like the more profitable thing to release. If they're showing three other things off at Toy Fair it's possible it's Hunting Grounds related which is the big thing that comes out this year.

    So we had the film right around the corner, Kenner and Fugitive appeared to be well received that another Fugitive variant is coming out, they started on Alpha, and Hunting Grounds was coming. I can see why they held off even if I'd prefer a re-tooled Wolf and Predalien.
