Hiya has said they're doing Rambo figures so hopefully that means some military figures we can use with the Predators.

There's a ton of great figures in the same scale from JoyToy and Toys Alliance.

Recently it was announced that Hiya will be doing 6 inch Judge Dredd figures, in addition to 4 inch figures. I wonder if that means they may do 6 inch Predators at some point.

Sounds like would conflict with NECA's line. But who knows.

Agreed - NECA has the license to do 6" scale Predator figures (even if they're doing f**k-all with the license right now IMO), I doubt Hiya would be able to do it.

It's the same reason Funko POPs for Marvel and Star Wars are all bobble-heads - Hasbro has the license for "figures" at that scale, and bobble-heads are a sort of loophole work-around that lets Funko make Marvel/Star Wars products at that scale without infringing on Hasbro's license.

NECA has stated that they STILL have the Alien license. But now with Disney owning the rights they’ve got more hurdles to jump to get approvals.

That doesn't necessarily mean it can't happen. Look at Marvel Legends, MAFEX, and SH Figuarts. All competing for the same market. Adult collector grade. Competition for more 6-7 inch scale Predators is good IMO. I'd like to have a few extra options.

Aren't MAFEX, and SH Figuarts Japanese companies? Maybe that makes a difference. Who owns the rights to Batman vs. Predator?

Mafex and SH Figuarts are a different "collector's market", they aren't mass market retail like Marvel Legends, which you can find at Wal-Mart.
