The description for the figure from NECA’s listing is as follows:

Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, the thrilling movie Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior who has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters on the Great Plains. When danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries. This 7” scale action figure is detailed to depict the creature’s movie appearance and includes a full complement of weaponry: mask, spear gun, open and collapsed spears, open and collapsed shields, and interchangeable hands and mandibles. Comes in collector-friendly 5-panel packaging with opening front flap.

You can pre-order the Ultimate Feral Predator figure now at Entertainment Earth! The figure is scheduled to ship in September.

    Quote from: The Shuriken on May 27, 2023, 11:42:59 AMThat's exactly why I stopped buying NECA toys. It essentially became high risk vs high reward.

    Hopefully Mike's Monsters ends up right and NECA is done with it. Then a better company might get their hands on the IP.
     Maybe they rerelease the old Kenner Aliens and Predator figures, Like how playmates is selling some of the original Ninja Turtles toys. (with cheaper plastic and les but more sloppy paint aps)

    I've suspected Hasbro will be gearing up for it.

    What fuels your suspicions?

    If Neca has lost the license then Hasbro seems like the first choice since they already work with them and possess the Marvel legends banner. Predator wouldn't strictly fall under Marvel, but to test the waters I can easily see Predator happen to be in a wave they're then currently doing because despite not being strictly Marvel, they are currently producing the comics and Disney own both Marvel and the franchise outright.

    So nothing movie specific since that involves specific rights but one of the streamlined character designs from the comics. And Hasbro has produced a number of larger sized figures in bulk lately. Wrecker of Bad Batch can still be found fairly easily despite being a larger deluxe figure.

    We also know from Lanard that the license is capable of being sold to kids. Kenner is also owned by Hasbro. Hasbro has done reissues of older figures from the Beast Wars line and Kenner did Predators way back when. Meaning it's not out of the question for Hasbro to pull from either old molds or concepts since one of the companies they own worked on the franchise already. We even know them to have done retro cards with not only Beast Wars but Star Wars.

    This photo is to announce the start of my Predator temple diorama, which will be HUGE and very detailed, this will be a separate project to my 38" x 38" forest winter Diorama, this predator temple will be probably 4 feet by 3 feet when finished, I have already begun making the floors and walls, some of which you can see in this photo. I can't wait to show the finished project! https://i.ibb.co/j61yC5r/image.jpg

    This is hands down the worst QC on a Neca Predator I have ever personally witnessed lol. Almost every part that was glued down just fell off and so did the left arm. The left knee as well is horribly bent out of shape and the LEDs did not come on even when replacing them with new batteries that were tested to work. I bought this brand new and sealed on Amazon and it was not opened prior.  https://i.ibb.co/VQ15HC0/IMG-20230525-201204811.jpg

    I actually like the design it was just the cgi enhancements that looked to shiny and plasticky, the lighting didnt match the practical face, it reminded me of movies from the 1990s like the lost world were you could see a clear difference between the animatronic and the cgi t-rex
  7. (Bad Blood)
    Hello my friends and fellow masters of Predator lore and culture. I was hoping for some advice or ideas on what I should add to my Winter Diorama to make it better? Or if you think it is fine as is then awesome. I would love any kind of feedback, thank you!
  8. Mike’s Monsters
    The production photography could have also been working with a sample that wasn't actually the final product. The early samples they use could be made out of a different, glossier material which will make him look shiny or slimy. I wouldn't be surprised if he's more matte finished in the final product.


    Speaking from experience since I shoot this stuff for Bandai as my day job. A lot of our samples don't match what the final product is going to look like, which is why there's often text saying "final product may appear different than production photography" or something along those lines.

    So I'd wait for real, in hand product photos closer to the release to really know if it's gonna be a glossy finish or not.

    Here's Blaine saying something very similar about the actual figure itself too:

    The face is horrendous, as expected. Rest is pretty solid for Neca imo

    Saw a comment about how the figure looks too slimy. I disagree...production still Feral wasnt slimy but Feral in the film looked slimy as f**k due to the terrible CGI sheen and drab colour grading inflicted on him.

    Will always use the masked head
  10. SiL
    There was a design in the Prey sub forum where an artist had applied the same motivation concepts, but kept it on the framework of the classic head shape. I liked that much better.
  11. Xenomrph
    Seeing the unmasked head for the action figure just reminds me of how much I dislike the unmasked design in the movie.

    I know this is the wrong thread for it but they really goofed up when they decided to redesign the Predator. Like, I mean, conceptually I get why they did it, and I understand that the artist who did it actually did in fact put a lot of careful thought into it to explain how the environmental factors would result in a different-looking Predator. I'm fine with that, I can respect that.

    It doesn't mean I have to like the end result.

    Hi. Terrible beast. Terrible design. Terrible figure  terrible face  But it's not Necca 's fault. How can you make something good with such a crap design. But this time Necca , terrible job. Too much hair ( not anymore dreadlocks)    What a stupid ridiculous " predator "..... no , it's not a predator.   If there is a further movie , please stop destroying icons
    Now you can realize how bad it is   Some of you will have that 50$ piece of plastic in your hands. You ll realize how bad it is.  No..... next
  13. PAS Spinelli
    No, this figure looks bad because it looks bad, not because Feral is "garbage" or a "travesty". If this figure had a decent paintjob and hair sculp it would look way better.


    It's also worth noting they downgraded the hair mold from the prototype to now

    And it's not like they couldn't make the body painting and sculp look good despite the Predator being mostly naked, they have made those kinds of design look good painting wise before.

    Yeah that worked nicely with Scar. NECA did wonders there. But Scar was still a lot closer to traditional Predator designs that re-working the design didn't take much.

    In order to make Feral look good, his design would have to be completely changed. There's no saving the travesty that it already is.

    Bummer, I was really looking forward to this.


    Yeah, Neca's going out with a whimper not a bang, finally it's a Predator sculpted with no passion just like most of their Aliens.
    I definitely noticed this one was lacking in sculpt and paint compared to the usual Predator releases, just releasing it just for the sake of shutting fans up about it as they believe Predator is no longer a lucrative line anymore. What's ironic is it has gotten 10 times as many likes and comments as anything they have revealed in the last year, the tmnt reveals get maybe 200-500 likes compared to Feral getting 3.5 thousand in a day, their Instagram and Facebook both show people were looking forward to this but they just didn't even try anyway unfortunately.

    Quote from: Sabres21768 on May 05, 2023, 02:39:52 PMSounds like it's time for someone to ask Amber Midthunder if she'd be cool with it.

    I'm going to guess that those discussions have already started or happened. Now it's a waiting game. I can see it being an SDCC exclusive set with Sarii or something when it's a character like this. I'd like to think Naru would sell like crazy, but not sure she would outside a small Predator fanbase. There's a lot of people who didn't like a lady being a Predator movie star, which could lead to lower sales too.

    Quote from: Master on May 04, 2023, 06:51:19 AMThe question is, will we see anything apart from this one?

    Probably not. Won't be surprised if this is the last Predator related figure we see from NECA for a long time unless the license is renewed. With no word on Alien Day and the little they've had to say over the last few years, I really don't think we will see anything new.


    Quote from: Gridseeker on May 04, 2023, 03:58:23 PMSerious question: do NECA have issues with the license? IS Disney/Fox making things complicated to release figures? Or just NECA decision?

    NECA let it go from what I've heard. Nothing to do with Disney or the merger. They let it fade out before then, and we're only now just seeing the tail end of the releases. It takes 6 months to make the figure with licensing and approvals, and 6 more to finally release them. So since we've seen nothing, it's safe to assume they let it go a while ago and we're just now seeing the results.

    So then Feral likely is the last release then? And if true, won't they announce it as such?

    I don't think many companies announce when they lose or let go of a license. It's not good business to publicly speak about deals and letting contracts expire or being dropped by a license owner. They always do it quietly and let it fade out. NECA said nothing when they let go of Godzilla's license, I don't expect anything different with Alien and Predator.

    So like I mentioned before, they likely let go of the license a while ago, but we're just now seeing the results of that play out on the timeline.

    Though, if there is enough demand, it could make some new deals happen in the future for a limited run here or there.

    https://twitter.com/blainerthings/status/1654178221275873297?s=46&t=_UkEryu2c2UmLOQcQ5K4SA

    This guy is at NECA and is speaking about the possibility of a Naru figure in this tweet. So anything is possible, but I'd say keep any expectations of anything new very low. Especially talent involved. NECA had to pay each actor individually for use their likeness to make an Alien or Predator themed figure. So Arnold and Sigourney or any actor was paid by NECA because FOX didn't sell the character's likenesses. So depending on how tricky that situation is with Amber and the characters rights could decide on a Naru figure.

    Yeah he's a little too glossy, but that's extremely easy to fix with matte finishing spray. I've done it on several other action figures (notably some of the Star Wars Black Series figures, and the recent 6" Indiana Jones who was super-glossy for some reason).
  22. (Bad Blood)
    Don't get me wrong, I am super thankful we are getting Feral in figure form but the hair just bothers me, its too voluminous..the image for the teaser looked so much better and the fact they forgot the entire back holster armor for the spear gun. It would have been nice to be able to attach the spear gun, but regardless the whole thing is missing.

    The hair leaves much to be desired, the base color is too dark and the spots don't blend as well as they should, he also looks too slimy
