That would cost so much that they wouldnt sell enough.
I think Ill be looking into getting the best looking ones from here.
I hope its not like the Predators figures tho, I never found ANY.

I will get doubles of every single one they make.

Now all NECA needs to do is announce an ALIEN3 figure and all will be right with the universe.

...Aw, man! I just realized I'm going to have to buy like 15 extra Alien figures just so they won't be completely overwhelmed!

They should do a Gort with Anytime armor, like the original Predator design, as an SDCC exclusive!

Will this be part of the Predators line or will it have its own series?

Hmmm...then what would the Elder be?

Maybe a two-pack for the Predator hounds might be a good thing to consider after all, or else that would be a pretty awkward "Series 3."

Aaaarrgh! Berserker's tiny wrist blade just fell out over the carpet! Now I've got to find it....
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Jace Madan on Dec 06, 2010, 11:18:12 PM
They will probably just release them in waves of 3 like with the "Predators" and "T2" figures. Wave one will probably have masked P2, and 2 lost hunters. Wave 2 has unmasked roaring P2, and 2 more lost hunters. Wave 3 is unmasked closed mouth p2, and 2 more lost hunters, and so on and so forth with P2 variants and the remaining lost hunters.

That might mean...five series overall!!! And I'll be getting all of them....

Yeah, they seem set on making every lost hunter, and with those plus all of the City Hunter variants makes for alot of figures! ;D

I NEED Gort though. Needs him.

Post by: Jace Madan on Dec 07, 2010, 12:41:21 AM
I think I read somewhere the reason they are called the "Lost Hunters" is because after the filming of "Predator 2", the costumes and suits went missing or were thrown away. So they are the "lost" Predators.

I'm definitely going to get multiples all of them. (even though they are mostly P2 costume kit-bashes with different masks).

I just wish that in the film that the unmasked P2 ones (aside from Elder) used the P1-style head. Some have less of the brow ridges than city hunter, but they all have the P2-style mandibles. I just like the look of the P1 face alot better. It just seems more expressive to me.

Which figures would you like to see first? I'd like to see Anytime 2, Borg, and maybe Ram the most, as well as City Hunter of course! (they should release the Boars closer together...)

Also, I predict we'll see Gort pretty early on!

I think it would be cool if they split a Collect-and-Build Alien trophy skeleton into different figures!
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series

The Hot Toys Version is based on Borg's design, but he comes with Boar's helmet and Hippie's staff. Check out the links on page one for more info on them, as well as any other design variations i missed.

Agreed. I don't mind the extra spikes so much (wish they were smaller), but I wish they hadn't made the mandibles so chunky and raw looking, as though they had a bad case of mandiblitis. The original mandibles flow much better.

Most of the lost predators are wearing the same armor... aside from the elder there is the one that looks like anytime, the one that looks like pussy face, and the other one, they should just release those, and have a swappable head/ accessories pack.
But what I would buy:
!P2 masked!
P2 Battle Damaged w/Breather
Elder
and Possibly gort, but I don't see what all the fuss is about the gort predator.

Celtic Knotworks???!!!

It seems pretty clear that Gort inspired Celtic...though the masks are different, it seems pretty clear that the similarities are there! (If I'm wrong, please post evidence/link.  :))

Can't say I agree about the Boars, but I must add on Ram, Anytime 2, and the Elder to that list.

Snake's mandibles look weird to me, but overall he looks pretty awesome.

Oh, what the heck, I like them all (but some more than others, of course...)

The similarities all lie in the general shape and feel, but otherwise details and design are very different.

Nope, as said Celtic was an entirely new mask. Based on Celtic Knotworks.

Nope. Chopper, or Gill, was an entirely new design. The City Hunter Mask would later be partly recreated in Wolf Predator's Mask.

I can't wait for these Lost Predators to be made. I wonder if any of the Predators will have accessories like spears or disks as they did in the final scene in Predator 2. It would be good if Neca made a few of the skulls from that trophy room and put them in with the Elder Predator. Who knows?

I think I just got owned.  :D

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. The similarities between the different masks do seem a little conspicuous, though....

Would I be burned alive if I said that Celtic's mask was cooler than Gort's?

Oh, heck...mask differences or no, Gort and Celtic are still distant design cousins.  ;D

Hopefully they'll make them accurate to each Predator, as well. I would love if they did them in two series of six or so figures, and each comes with a piece of the trophy wall. I think that all but the Elder and maybe Hippie come with Smart-Disks, and I know that some of them come with spears, but for other accessories I have no idea.

Do you think it would be possible for them to release the Spaceship Predator from AVPR? Also, I think some "half-stealth" figures of Anytime and Kittyface would be awesome, perhaps if they came with a painted stand/backdrop like the Active-Camo Berserker from the SDCC previews? Depending on how that figure goes....

So along with the City Hunter, we have the Elder, Ram, Borg, Boar, Snake, Hippie, Brother Boar, Gort and the P1 variant. So we could have up to 10 new Predators from NECA, with the possibility of variants of most likely the City Hunter. That's alot of Predator we could be getting in the future!!!
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Wolf91 on Dec 20, 2010, 04:31:28 PM
To top it off, We already have 7 different variants of wolf predator, unmasked berserker, masked berserker, cloaked berserker, falconer, tracker, open mandible classic pred, closed mandible classic pred, battle damaged classic pred... 15 predators and adding onto series 3, in total we will have 18 predators... Along with the possibility of 10 new preds, damn you guys do the math... Im so loving Neca predators nowww !
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Glaive10 on Dec 20, 2010, 05:11:47 PM
Bare in mind series 3 will have the masked Classic (P1) along with the Elder, I only bought 2 versions of Wolf as I don't like to have too many, I'd much rather have loads of different Preds than doubles, I've still got 3 on order that I won't see till the new year!
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Peakius Baragonius on Dec 21, 2010, 04:50:15 AM
And coming soon: Wolf with hole through chest, Even More Battle Damaged Wolf, Half-Masked Wolf, No-Masked Wolf, Double Cleaner Kit Wolf, Three-Fourth Stealth Wolf, One Fourth Stealth Wolf, Ship Pilot Wolf, Unarmed Wolf, Wolf with Aliens in Hands, Wolf With Damaged Plasma Casters, Wolf with hole through chest masked, Masked Wolf with no cleaner kit, Even More Battle Damaged Wolf with Mask, Stealth Wolf Unmasked, Wolf caught in nuclear explosion (melted, empty package,) True Stealth Wolf (empty package with claw marks in it to indicate escape), and Dead Wolf. All come in Masked and Unmasked variants!

And considering how many Predators we're going to be getting from the lost tribe, that might be okay!  ;D

Maybe they'll release the Lost Predators in the order they appeared on screen?

As an accessory, they should have the Predator doves from the film -- those birds were totally in league with Kittyface, attempting to flush Harrigan out of hiding by scaring him, conveniently flying out whenever he was in a spot of peril...they probably helped Kittyface spy on everyone as well, reporting back potential prey to their master in exchange for Yautja sourdough bread crumbs and Robot Falcon seed. Plus, they'd make up for NECA not releasing Falconer's falcon. Or maybe they could release that alongside it! Yeah!  :)

They should release Pussyface with some @#@#@ accesories! I dont understand why they didnt included-with Berserker especially-some longer blades to have some variety-he must have disc and spear
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: jhsnake999 on Jan 05, 2011, 04:39:48 PM
For accessories, I thought that the Berserker Predator should have had a skull and a longer blade as an accessory. The Falconer Predator should have had his Falcon and the Tracker Predator should have had a longer blade too. It would be great if the City Hunter from Predator Two could have a spear and a smart disk like in the movie. It would be great if he got a skull too maybe the same as the Skull that the Berserker Predator should have had? Not forgetting the doves, it would be great if Neca included a dove or two!
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Peakius Baragonius on Jan 06, 2011, 03:59:36 AM
I agree about the accessories for the Super Predators, though I'm still satisfied with the blades we got. I just wish they'd had more weapons in the movie in the first place... :-\

It's very likely that we'll get the Smart-Disk with a lot of Predators, as most if not all of the Lost Predators' armor contains a "holster" for it (except for the Elder, of course), and it would look weird without one. Hopefully enough of them have them that I can give a spare to my Series 1 Classic -- favorite Predator weapon, favorite Predator figure! (So far!  :)) Some of the Predators have wrist blades, so of course we'll get those; ditto the plasma cannons. Also, some of the Predators in addition to Kittyface had the combi-spear, so we'll probably see those as well! I hope they'll be extendable, though...(nervous face).

What would be really nice is if Kittyface's masked and Final Battle versions (assuming they make them) came with the netgun, which has never been done in the seven-inch scale to my knowledge. Maybe they could include a fold-up net with it? That would be awesome! Also, I have no idea how they will include the spear tips, since we never actually saw the Speargun, but they would be welcome somehow!

I hope they don't forget the Predator's wrist pulse thingy. A minor but fun detail, and since they probably won't make the wrist nuke openable there's no reason why they couldn't include it....

And my final suggestion/speculation: Since Kittyface only had the plasma cannon/caster when he was in full gear, it makes no sense to have it on unmasked/battle damaged variations, so why not make the caster-less backpacks openable? Maybe they could include a little medical dish or something!

Oh, and don't forget the doves!

The Predators figures look awesome, but they're definitely lacking as far as weapons/accessories go...so I've got a good feeling about these figures coming up!

We'll have to wait for February to know for sure...darn it!  :)

I'd love to see pussyface come with smart disk and an retractable combistick like the macfarlane version. Peronally I think we'll just get one like Wolfs, and knowing NECA, the netgun and disk will just be unremovable parts of the armor. I'd love to see him come with Jerry's skull and spine so I can reinact the eastern building tower stance. Oh and the doves  ;)

The Unmasked Wolfs/Wolves/Wolfves (??) came with an unfolded shuriken in addition to the ones on the belt, so hopefully the same holds true here. Actually, considering how important an accessory the disc is, it's likely that they'll make it for at least some of the figures -- and if they do, then why waste money designing two sets of leg armor when you could just include the disk with all of them? And for Kittyface, a non-removable disk would be the equivalent of giving him non-extendable wrist blades.

And frankly, I have no idea why they wouldn't make the combi-stick extendable unless they were really low on money. With the AVP versions it wouldn't be a problem because of their simplified and sleek design, but a Predator 2 spear just wouldn't make sense that way -- the collapsed version would be useless as a weapon against other toys unless you pose or hold them in really close range, and a fully extended version would be rather fragile, whereas the ability to retract would ensure that it could be stored safely.

I have a bad feeling about the spear tips, though... :-\ Oh, well, these figures should still be awesome!

I'm sure this factory change will be for the better, which is great... But it's fun to customize, and tweak things yourself. Besides pussyface, along with the P2 elder, probably my favorite predator designs. I'm sure there's something I'll have to tweak, or add, if only so I can sleep at night, ha... oh, sad but true.

Awww...

How big is it, exactly? I hope it's larger than Revoltech's other Aliens....

Would it be impossible to produce an Alien Queen the same way as their 18" figures, and then market it with the 7" scale toys?

Can't wait for Toy Fair next weekend!

Yes.
I call Anytime Diablo because Anna called him that in the movie.
And I call Pussyface (no need to censor it) Ghost because the boy with the toy gun said he saw one when he runs away.
(Credit to PQ for actually introducing me to the names though)

Agreed. I'm 27...my girlfriend tolerates it but doesn't understand the appeal. (she's not remotely arty or into films but is into gaming)

Spend your money on things you enjoy. I appreciate the artistry that goes into these collectables, I enjoy the imagination that artists like Stan Winston put into these creature designs.

When I was 18 I was too self-conscious to collect things because "it wasn't cool" but coolness is about being honest and cool about what you like. I regret not starting sooner, or saving when I was living with my rents. People with no interests are dull and don't see all the design and creativity around them. I studied design at university and it really opens your eyes. Without creativity there wouldn't be ANY cool stuff! No games, no films, no art, no brands, no magazines, no clothes, no celebs, no cool cars, no tv shows...

AND... parents aren't always right! It'll take YEARS getting over the damage they'll have unknowingly done to you!!! ;D

You stop caring what other people think as you get older anyway. Better to spend your money on Predator collectables than f**king yourself up on weed, vodka etc. There are worse expensive habits. Most luxuries are unneccesary anyway- How is a Predator model any less worthwhile an indulgence than an expensive set of make-up, an overly expensive car or new clothes? My parents told me being in a band was a waste of time and money, but they changed their tune when I was getting calls from record companies and supporting famous artists in front of huge crowds!!! Granted, we didn't make it big-big, but still a great experience. If I'd listened to my parents I would have missed out on some crazy fun!

I hear you man.
I could say to my parents, "Would you rather me be a person who spends over $100 dollars a week on clubs and alcohol or someone who spends half that buying a few figures a year?"
That will get them, Guaranteed.
I've been there. A night out with a few mates celebrating an 18th birthday cost a lot. A few figures that will last a long time cost barely anything in comparison.
And about your point about creativity. I am an art student at Uni majoring in sculpture, so I can definitely appreciate the work put into these figures.

I don't actually have an income yet. But as soon as I have a job, I'll be able to let my collection of badass figures grow even more.

Thanks for the words of encouragment.  :)

Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: jhsnake999 on Feb 10, 2011, 09:12:48 PM
I bought the Classic Predator today from Cash Converters for £12.99. I have had all of my Predator figures in boxes because I never take them out. Yesterday I had an urge to open one of them and that soon turned into all of them. The only problem with the Classic Predator was that his dreadlocks were not glued on properly and his wristblades were not extendible. I did pour boiling water over the wristblades but they softened and wouldn't budge. After about ten minutes I tried pulling them out and they fell off, I super glued them together and now they are back to normal. The Falconer Predator's arm was put on backwards too so I had to swap it around. Does anyone else think that the Predator's heads pop off really easily? I cannot wait for the new Predators though, I will try to get all of them, if not I will buy the best looking Predators.

In the Predator 2 "easter egg" dance video, you can tell the lost Predators are quite a bit shorter than Pussyface, especially Ram.  I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope the figures are NOT film accurate in this sense.  I imagine this only occurred because finding 7'2" suit actors is a pain.

On a side note, Kevin Peter Hall still moves like a Predator even when dancing.  He will always be the only real Predator to me.

Indeed Kevin is the one and only predator. but i'm still thankfull to all others who have acted Preds because we get more pred films that way (since kevin can't act anymore :().

i hope Predator2 comes with accessories, i mean, wolf did. berserker,classic etc didn't but, they didnt have loads of weapons as wolf and P2 did anyhow (yes, skulls or other stuff would have been nice but, not a must).

Here's our first look at NECA's P2!

Thank you NECA, I cannot wait to get this Predator! Do you know if the Predator mask is attachable as it is separate on this photograph? Thank you for sharing this news Sabres...

Not a super beautified model specifically for the convention.

as much as i love hot toys, their city hunter figure was a horrible failure on the skin pattern deco - head was a different base color than the body, no tiger stripes on the legs, no black on the body... uggghh!! hopefully neca will do better. wish they would make an 18 inch version of the city hunter, but this will never come to pass. hopefully the 6 inch figures will start looking closer to what the 1:4 predator turned out to be. neca's slowly starting to win me over. the lost hunters won't hurt, either.

Hopefully it comes with an attachable mask. I don't see any dreads behind that mask so hopefully it is a separate piece and not a head.

I for one am glad that its not an attachable mask.  The old McFarlane predator2 figure's head was too small and the mask never fitted it properly in my opinion!  The neca sculpt looks brilliant!  My only concern is that the design on his pussy face is quite complex and might end up sub bar, similar to the berserker's chest! Also did anyone else notice that its real netting on his body?

It's just a proto, they pt real netting for better effect i suppose, i doubt they would put real netting when production comes.

Looks amazing! With any luck they will be able to do him in 1/4th scale. Hell, the 12 inch protos are great, they would blow Hot toys out of the water... (if they wanted to) Love the photoshopping with the helmet, awesome.

Pussyface looks great.  The first photo neca released made it look a bit awkward, but the new photos look great.  I imagine the real one will not have real netting, which I actually prefer.

I wonder if they'll do a closed mouth version.
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Johnny Handsome on Feb 13, 2011, 10:05:50 PM
Awesome, but keep in mind that this is the prototype, plus the mesh won't be a seperate part like on this one.

Later the Guardian from P2 will have that mask but on a P2 body w P2 dreads.  (neca via twitter)

I knew it, ha ha! I predicted that was what it was going to be!

Could anyone post more pics of the other Predator figure we saw, please?  ;D

EDIT: Nevermind, that was the Elder Predator....

Is there any info on what the other accessories will be? Also, for those of you who are expert image analyzers, does it look like the left wrist gauntlet will be able to open?  (the pulse blast thingy, not the nuke -- I imagine that they wouldn't put the latter in since they didn't do it with their P1 figures, but the former would be nice as I liked that weapon...)

Why is it that after waiting months for images of the Predator 2 figures, I'm now even more hyped up than before?  ;)

I'm glad NECA is including some trophies this time. The first handful of Predators having nothing extra was a shame. Since I own so many toys, I fished out some accessories from other figures to give my Berserker a human skull, and a length of razor wire to make a leash for my Tracker and his eventual dogs.

But ya, I want to see spines, skulls, tools, whatever!

i wonder where it comes from. the mandible bits reminds me of a Hydralisk from starcraft but i highly doubt that was the intention (wasnt starcraft released after P2 anyway?.  i'm not sure if only the alien skull comes from another movie, or does all skulls belong to a movie creature?

I always thought so too bobby brown. Some Local Predator, maybe the Predator-Equivalent of a Crocodile.

Regarding it having similarities with the Kothoga, those end right out with the mandibles.

good question. is the elder and P1 pred packaged under their film names or under predators?. otherwise you could see the name Predators as a gathered name for what it is, wel, predators. quite a good name for a series making alot of preds. anyhow, it would be bbest if each had their own licence naming on the package, but it's not that important aslong as we do get all those nice preds, right?

Predator 2 license (Randy already told us)

And more news from twitter:

"Predators Series 4 might be & I stress might: Predator 2 City Hunter, Shaman, and Boar. Subject to change"

;D

On a side note, "Shaman" is how NECA call the Hippie Predator.

Either that or its his brother. There are those links on the first page with pictures of every single one (!!! 8)), and I think this one's identified as Brother Boar (har har), but since these guys have no official names who knows which one is which?

What do you guys think Gort and Anytime's cousin might be called or renamed? Guardian Predator and Jungle Predator? Original and Classic? Celtic-lookalike-who-didn't-inspire-Celtic-gosh-darnit and Awesome-it's-the-original-Predator-mask-with-the-Predator-2-weapons?

I think he is called Shaman/Hippie because he doesnt have any weapons, just a staff in his right hand... maybe a doctor predator, i think... He also has long dreads on the front side:

I had my national insurance card not long ago, so I can start looking for a job too. I was planning to buy the Berserker Predator, Falconer Predator, Tracker Predator and the Classic Predator from series one again as Neca have moved to a new factory so the Quality Control should be much better. So I will buy series one of Predators and the Tracker Predator from series two again, then I will buy Grey-back or the City Hunter Predator next depending on when they are released and then the whole of the Lost Predator clan. I will also buy the masked Wolf Predator and all of the Neca Aliens. How much will all of those cost? Over £150 I guess?

neca anounced that they will show 2 new lost predators very soon! can´t wait :D

I have to save some money, too. I´ve only buyed masked Beserker, unmasked Anytime and masked Anytime.
When series 3 will arrive in stores in my area then I will buy all the rest figures from the new line.

Maybe there will be a chance neca retools the wolf predator, they already said via twitter that they know that they will be able to make it much much better.

Those are awesome! Shaman's face could be closer to the film, but personally it looks great either way! I'll definitely be getting these!

I wonder if the Series 1 City Hunter will be masked or unmasked?

Oh boy, now that I've seen these I'm even more psyched for the others to come out! I can't wait for Borg, Jungle Predator, and Ram in particular!

Nevertheless, these images will be worth the wait!

And wait...does that page say they'll have them all out by the end of the year!!!???  :o I have no idea how, but if they did it would be even awesomer!

Just a thought.  When all is said and done with the lost Preds, how about a box set?  Kind of like the Neca TMNT figs or Hellraiser boxset.  You know some of these wil be a pain to track down. Being short packs or exclusives or however they plan to release them.

Which skulls do you think we will get with the Lost Predators besides the Boar Predator and his skull and spine accessory? I would like to see the creature skull resembling the Tyrannosaurus Rex with a Predator like Snake and possibly another Alien Skull with the Elder Predator.

neca confirmed to give every lost pred a skull from the predator2 ship wall. I think this will start with series 4, probably september this year. But there will be 8 lost preds  - don´t know what could be a posisble accesory if the trophys from the wall will be through. Maybe some bigger accesories like netgun, rebreather  next to the idividual accesory every pred will get - or a human head - maybe king willies head  :D this would be f**king awsome!

There are 8 skulls up there, even if 3 are human skulls.
I wonder if Neca would put the work into making a Harrigan figure. It'd be hard to get the liscence but worth it.

Well, you can cross off the Alien skull, since that already came with the 2-pack.

Unless NECA is planning on reusing it.

Seeing the pics of Boar and Shamen made me think WOW but I'm not sure whether to get any of the Lost Predators as they didn't get enough screen time. I may end up getting them just to go with the rest of my collection but will it be just for the sake of it? See we didn't see any personality to them unlike the other Preds we've seen, maybe it's just for the novelty. I love collecting but the Lost Preds none of them really jump out at me ya know, does anyone else have these kind of feelings to?? But again getting another 9 Preds would be cool

Oh, man! How can I explain this?

I just love the lost predators!  8)

Since i saw them, i wanted to know their names, the histories behind them... They have all this mistery around them... Besides, each one have their different color and skin pattern that makes them unique. I rather have them than those variant versions that NECA released for P1 and Wolf. I dont like to have two predators that look the same (i know, one with helmet, one without helmet, one with open mouth, one with closed mouth... but this is just crap)! I want different predators!   >:(

And if NECA release predators that never been on a movie i'll buy them too!

I just want to build a army of predators!  ;D

To be honest, I had VERY little interest in buying the P2 Elder, and when I heard pussy face was coming out, I was kinda...meh. Then heard about the lost preds and thought PLEEEEEEEEASE.

But these pics...I've deeply reconsidered. I dont like Pussy Face as much as P1, liked him a tad less than Scar and Celtic, but still liked him. And I've heard people talk about making Lost Hunter figures several times and the 2 hot toys figs suck. But now that I've seen proof, and from my favorite figure makers...I'm excited!

I'll probably do a stop motion of this when I get them all (or as close as I can get it.)

Will probably only get Pussyface because money doesn't grow on trees and my Mum thinks it is a waste of money. Especially for an 18 year old like me.

Trust me. Ignore her. IGNORE HER! The Predators command it!


this.

Dude im 25 and everyone around me incl my gf thinks collecting predators is a waste of money but it is not a waste if you enjoy it mate. People just dont otherstand why we love to collect them so human nature kicks in and they bash it into the ground.. Ignore them and collect even more  ;)

My girlfriend not only likes my colection but ocasionaly she buys me a piece  ;)

You Sir, are one lucky fellow! If I could shake your hand I would! :P

Anyway, not to come in late on the topic, but I'm quite excited about the Predator 2 figures; yes, I may be running out of space, but by the Ancient's hair, I am making sure the Lost tribe will have a good home! I have most of the MacFarlane figures but the main issue with them is that they were designed to be posed in certain ways...So when the Predators line started, I was instantly impressed with the articulation range and detail (and strength...my first was the Falconer, and his feet were on the wrong legs! Thank goodness for ball and socket joints, because I managed to swap them, but it was tough!) It'd be fantastic to see Scar, Celtic, Chopper, The Ancient (AVP Elder) & Wolf with these articulation improvements! They'd be definitely on my list to get! (Also, I'd like to see Scarface and Dark, but that might be wishful thinking! Hehe)

And I can't remember who mentioned, but if the Super Predators' blade-lengths are an issue, then it's no problem to swap them around with each other; however (un)intentional, it's a nice little bonus!  8)

Anyway...Berserker and Classic are facing off again...Ah well, the fireplace is a good place for a showdown!  :laugh:

Probably not. In his point in time they'll probably have their final decision of the design and its all ready for packaging and distribution.

But they'll most likely release another one if the new line goes well with the double jointed knees and people asking for another. They did the same for Marcus Fenix.

I read it and that's why I was worried. Would have sucked if it was SDCC only. I've only seen sculpts of the gort preds head so I wanted to confirm it would get a whole figure.

The SDCC exclusive is interesting however considering that was going to be the predator 1 mask originally.

I'm quite sure it was Winston too...I think I remember one of the documentaries describing the designs and Winston had the mask simplified as much as possible to 'follow' the basic shape/outline of the face, so that it would nicely contrast the face...

Then again, Silver may have suggested it...I can't remember now! :o

Exactly, even though stan winston felt it gave away the Predators actual face

Wasn't that Joel Silver?

Thats what I thought too

Page 104 of the Winston effect.

"Initially, the mask design was a mechanical interpretation of the creature's face. To avoid giving away the look of the creature too early in the film, SWS later changed the mask design to a simpler, more 'tribal' look."

When I first read it I pretty much thought SWS just meant Stan, and I still think he most likely suggested the other look. (Any artists out there? How many times you painted/sculpted/made something, looked at it and said...."Nah I don't like this look anymore.")

But yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if it were several saying "Lets use something that doesn't hint the surprise."

The Alien/Predator figures that Necca has released are awesome! So far I have purchased every figure that they have released and its a pretty great collection. Anyone having trouble finding the figures, here are a few places i can recommend to you:
Bedrock City Comics Company, located in Houston, Texas U.S.A. , they have 3 stores there and are online
Amazon.com
EntertainmentEarth.com
P.S. EntertainmentEarth.com tends to run out of stock pretty quickly, but they do have pre-order and back- order options and so does Amazon.com

I am baffled by what the second from the right head is...I suppose it could be Borg, but it looks too much like the original/elder Predator to me, with really short dreadlocks...thoughts, anyone?

And is that an...expanding spear!?

Any word on what the second series will consist of? Also, which version of City Hunter will be in Series 1, masked or unmasked?

i believe the order is: brother boar, hippie, ram, snake
                               boar, gort (x2), city hunter, and borg.

guys, i can't believe what i'm seeing, saw hippie (or shaman) and boar a few weeks ago all painted up and started losin it!

and for those wondering... unfortunately i don't believe the spear is collapsible, the middle or handle part isn't long enough for both pieces on either side to collapse into fully. which sucks, but maybe it won't sag like McF's spear always did for me.

oh well can't kill my buzz with that when you have all these amazing sculpts to admire ;D

Post by: JediYautja on Apr 12, 2011, 07:08:57 PM
I sort of agree with the previous couple of posts...for me, the MacFarlane figures had incredible detail. However they were unfortunately rather delicate and I prefer a 'neutral' pose for articulated figures (otherwise what's the point; may as well be statues...).

I'm glad that with NECA, you get great detailing and the figures are a lot tougher; just ask my Falconer; got him with his feet on the wrong legs...It was more than an effort to swap them around, but now it's as if there was nothing wrong with him! :D

Can't wait for the upcoming Predators...I'll have to make some room though! XD

Love the packaging...nice contemporary look of the later predator films, whilst retaining thThe PREDATOR 2 motif. Brilliant. Just a shame we won't get Harrigan himself.

These are a must-buy. Agree with the above poster on the spaceship backdrop. Would be cool if they released a box-set like they did with the ninja turtles, with the spaceship diorama behind.

Can't wait. These guys will look great in my new display cabinet.... ;D

The only thing I don't like about the packaging is the Elder's "weapon of choice" Yes, he carries the flintlock on him but it looks like they imply he actually uses it. Unless he's hunting quail or deer it's not doing to must use. Not even on a person, and that's assuming he even knows how to load it and has what you need for it.

And the "Cutlass" looks more like a machete if anything. But I guess I'm just nitpicking. 

He at least has his wristblades and P-caster.

I don't expect them too since it's probably hard to add the lasers onto the caster. (due to size, but I don't sculpt at that scale.) But I'll be happy with it either way.

I'm really disheartened that they would add the word "Classic" to the packaging when this is supposed to the the '87 Predator...NOT the PREDATORS Pred. 

Let the confusion begin.  ::)

Anytime is a "Classic" Predator.  ;)

Additionally, it is the same sculpt as the other three, even the Cracked Mask. For all intents and purposes, the casual fan in the toystore or shopping online will recognize them as the same character. (...I guess?)

Speaking of which, is it just me or are the wounds on the Battle Damaged Classic's leg identical to his injuries in Predator?

Heh...I crave news of these, but with each new bit of info I only become more excited...keep up the good work in keeping us updated, guys!  :)

What is with this "Honor" Bullshit?

I'll admit, It does make sense in the paragraph, but they should have used the word "worthy". Honorable implies too much and takes us down the path of typical EU crap.

Don`t do this samoth. EU is crap in nearly all of it`s incarnations.

Most likely the hound's will feature Berserker on his again. Looks like they got the idea of using one image to signify which movie it comes from.


As for the P1 package, it looks the best so far and it's description pretty much sums up Predators in general. I don't see the problem. True they like "Honorable" prey, but from what I can tell from the movies, books, and comics, they hunt anything that is hostile or aggressive and ultimately challenging. And that's to boost their own honor.

That skull looks awesome. I still really want the exclusive though, because he has a gripping P1-style left hand to hold the trophy with. It will definitely come in handy to use on the standard Classic Predator figures. As far as I can tell, this will be the only figure you can get that specific hand with.

What...because it doesn't slide down?

No justification needed...this still kicks McFarlane's P2 all to hell and back, buys it a milkshake and then throws it in its face.

Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Taraka on May 08, 2011, 08:19:16 PM
I know I'm not helping, but I honestly don't care about the Caster. I mean the lasers when they're not on, aren't noticeable. The only thing I noticed as a difference between Elder's caster and P1 is aside the lasers, the neck is a little bit longer. But I've had enough problems with the Classic Predator casters at it because of the necks. Most of them were clogged with hardened paint ad break when I tried to move them.

But I've had enough problems with the Classic Predator casters at it because of the necks. Most of them were clogged with hardened paint ad break when I tried to move them.

For all intents and purposes a plasma caster is useless and/or not as interesting without the laser sights. We've never seen a Predator fire a caster without a mask or some form of targeting system, and quite honestly without one I don't see how a Predator could even use the caster. How would it know where the heck it was firing at?! In the movies, the caster isn't/wasn't designed to be used without targeting sights or a bio-mask. That's why Anytime took the caster off before removing his mask.

In Predator 2, the laser sights on the caster showed how it could be aimed without a mask, and it was an iconic moment in the film besides. I intend to purchase the Elder no matter what, but if they're going to leave the sights off the caster then they might as well leave the whole thing out because otherwise it would be a useless hunk of ****.

Okay, that might be a little extreme, but the point stands.

Oh, and I'm definitely loving the new pictures. I can't wait for September!

Sabres, any word on when Borg is going to be released? I hope we can see photos of the front side soon!

Because it's going to be released at this year's SDCC. Last year's exclusive was a stealth Berserker. (Come to think of it, the sheer difference in nature between the two exclusives shows just how far NECA has come....)

Well, i dont think that are so much diference between these two exclusives... they are both recicled figures if you think of it: Stealth Berserker was just a transparent Berserker and this year's exclusive is just a P1 body that NECA already been used 4 times (classic, battle damage, 2pack with alien and the incoming P1 masked series3) with a Gort mask (that we will see in the incoming Gort Lost Predator figure)... So, until now, all the exclusives are just recicled figures with a little twist  ;)

Notice the Kenner Renegade pred in the background?

I'm wondering,
Why would they model the wires under his armor?
I mean, sure it could be for filling up the space between the two pieces of the chest an giving it dimension but it could just be empty...
Are they maybe... going to make battle damaged versions of all of them?

I love his pattern, seriously, especially head, it's amazing, so detailed. :)
And legs also. But... I can't help myself, it looks a bit like decorative tights IMHO... ;) Just silly association of mine...

You are correct, it's not attached.
The other pieces are sitting at the Pred's feet.

This is showing the level of detail NECA is putting into this, by showing all the wiring under the armor that they've sculpted.  ;)

Just checked their site, they ship on July 23rd.
I'll be on vacation by then so I'll be calling and employing your personal method of getting then Queen.
I'll be buying the Elder and Anytime figures, but not the hound. I see no point in getting it if I don't have the Tracker.

after looking at all these pics I have to say I am realy excited. before I wasn't too interested (me still holding a grudge with NECA with their Alien figure problems) but now that I look at these figures. I have to say I am very interested. knowing NECA has gotten a new factory, I cannot wait to get these guys with the knowledge that the QC will be much better!

here are the fallowing preds I will be steal---- I mean buying....

Classics Predador (Anytime)

Predator 2 Main Pred (pussyface)

Lost hunters:

Gort (yeah yeah, I know he isn't responcible for the creation of Celtic but frankly I still see the resemblance even though its subtle)

Borg (love that wiring details under the armor! wonder what its functions would serve the Pred? maybe hes actualy a cyborg!?)

thats it for right now. I'm realy excited because, dispite mainly being an alien fan, I like Predator too. and been looking for a good Predator action figure for a looong looong time after seeing Predator for the first time. I won't lie, I was very disappointed with the Wolf figures. and the fact that there was a million of them made I just didn't like the figure. but seeing these figures. WOW. and the articulation! OMG double jointed knees!? why didn't they impliment that feature a long time ago!? we could have a crouching Alien figure a long time ago!

anyways. after seeing this. I cannot wait to see what NECA will come out with. their advancements and change of factory defenantly shows that they are picking up the slack after the whole ordeal with the old factory.


wow and they come out in a month in a half from now? awsome! cannot wait. I will defenantly save up. who knows after this NECA will work on some AvP Preds (me wanting Celtic so bad!).

keep it up NECA! Still waiting for a new wave of Alien figures from that old factory! but this will please me in the mean time. ;)

Yes it does make sense.
The mask they were originally going to use in Predator was the Gort mask but they used the mask we know today instead.
therefore this figure is the true Anytime.
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Jace Madan on May 19, 2011, 01:50:14 AM
Man, that figure looks cool. I definitely gotta get that.

And I wouldn't pay any serious mind to the jerks on ebay charging $40+ for pre-orders for this guy. They did the same thing with the TRU 2-pack, having it for like $60 to $80. And guess what? You can still order the 2-pack from TRU.com for $27 +shipping.

This figure should be available at places like BBTS.com, Cornerstore comics and NECA's amazon store for around $25 to $30, just like the Stealth Wolf, Stealth Berserker, and all of NECA's other SDCC exclusives were. Shame on those people on ebay for inciting panic and false demand by charging that much for a figure.

Post by: Taraka on May 19, 2011, 04:15:00 AM
Actually, you're half right. Gort's mask was a mechanical interpretation of the face, but they KNEW it would give away the face and decided to use the tribal look.  It's in the section of the Winston Effect centered on the first predator film.

If you want to be absoloutely precise, then it's not exactly what cap said, but non the less it is the same thing techinically.  They should be on pre-order, though i must warn you to check the seller fist because there are many 'cons' out there that act as if they have figure on pre-order when they have no intention of doing so :) .

Yeah, that we know.

But he's saying someone SPECIFICALLY said that the Gort mask is meant to represent a mech version of the Pred's face.

That, I've never heard before, so I'm looking for a source.

Post by: ridetofight on May 20, 2011, 03:36:50 AM
i've heard/read the same thing somewhere before. couldn't tell you where, though (although i want to say it was video, not print).

however, from what i remember, it was either from a source not close to the development of the mask, or was just a way of phrasing how they were trying to describe the mask - i don't remember having the understanding that the "gort" mask was strictly intended as a mechanical interpretation from its inception.

one thing that has always made me a big fan of this mask is it's design similarities to the terminator endoskeleton - really cool congruence for an important effects studio, kind of marking the pinnacle of their design prowess.

Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what Cap said.

No. He said it hinted at the face, not that it actually was a mech-interpretation.


Please post whatever source it was you got the "mech-interpreatation" info from.

I've never seen that anywhere.

Ok.


-"Initially, the mask design was a mechanical interpretation of the creature's face. To avoid giving away the look of the creature too early in the film, SWS later changed the mask design to a simpler, more 'tribal' look.

The Winston Effect, p 104.

"Are you 100% sure NECA won't do the AVP preds? I'm dont want to spend my money in those crap mcfarlane ones :(

Answer:

"not certain but if we did them it would be more than a year away since it will take at least that long b4 all the Lost are out"

Well, i know its not a real confirmation... but at least he changed his speech from "No! Never! I hate them!" to "Not certain... if we did them..."

Actually, it's because he asked. And it's Taraka with an R, thank you.

I agree we need to change the subject.

Sidenote: Sabres, I REALLY recommend The Winston Effect. It's expensive, but REEEEEEEALLY cool. Especially when it turns out you watched some stuff he worked on and didn't even know it.

Tribal, dude I think us bugging them about the AVP pred's actually worked, though I'm kinda sad knowing if they do, they're just going to re-release the alien warriors from requiem with a different head, then re-release THAT with a different lower leg for Alien Resurrection figures.


Yeah I'd say Neca's got alot coming.

I really want these Predators but I don't have enough money, I'm saving for a few of the older Predator models though. I found a cheap model shop that sells Predator models for like £9.50 brand new. So I'm going to get the whole line of Predators series one models and the two Alien models. I will then start with the newer Predators like Tracker and Masked Classic Predator.

At around 15-20 bucks each, they're actually quite acceptable IMO. That's about 200 for the full P2 line-up, a steal IMO.

i would by them no doubt. first of, i do like the designs, especially celtic and chopper. and secondly, with the lost hunters underway, the avp preds are the only ones that stands between me and a 7" display of each pred design ever seen in the films! something ive been dreaming of for a long time. plus, neca would do a decent job compared to mcfarlane...they are simply not in par with neca to be displayed with them.

Oh, I agree on NECA being more accurate (then again, they're being sculpted by the same person, LOL), but I just find the Celtic and Gill NOT to be unique enough to buy them all again, contrary to all other predators. If you have a lineup of at least 4 new predators from AvP, all they differentiate in is their helmets. Not worth the money IMO.

you have a point. though i would still buy them. and isn't it the same thing with lost preds? its many re-used p2 bodies and p1 parts isn't it? sure, they differ more but not 100% new. borg is probably the most unique

At least they showed the benefit of effort. Sure, they used the same basic skin, but other than that, most of them were unique looking, instead of the same color, armor and all, with the sole identity derived from the helmet.

Maybe that's one of the big reasons why they dont want to do the AVP preds, they technically ARE the same predator, except for helmets. Even the Ancient Predators. And they get enough lip from alot of collectors for reusing molds. (Long as it's in context, I don't care if its reused.) And like I pointed out, the Alien warriors and grid would have the AVP-R body reused. I can't help but notice it seems like they like to take the most unique of charectors from films and games to make figures of. The AVP preds and Aliens are too generic...suddenly I don't want them anymore....

True...I think apart from the helmets, the weapons are the things that differentiate the AVP Preds from each other (Scar's extending wrist-blades, Celtic's swivel-blades and Chopper's arm blades, which were unfortunately stuck on every MacFarlane AVP Pred).

I think that's the one of the big reasons why they should do the APV preds. They just have to sculpt one body for all figures. Like they did with P1 (using same body for P3 classic, P3 classic BD, P1 without helmet, P1 with helmet, P1 with the Gort helmet) and, still, people keep buying. Same thing with the wolf (one body for SEVEN toys, and they've sold so well that NECA is still rereleasing them)  ;D
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Taraka on May 22, 2011, 08:56:35 PM
True, but that makes them boring to look at. Even the 4 Classic preds I have, I only keep 2 out. The one I put the damaged mask head on, and the TRU exclusive which once in a while I put the series 1 Classic head on. But to have an army of Predators that're actually different characters standing around...I'd probably either sell them really quick or they'd rarely come out of my closet. Plus, their armor designs aren't exactly inspired. Yeah they're very Aztec and Mayan, but that's not how the other predators look. And I'll flat out say I'll never buy an unmasked Scar pred if he's screen accurate.

This is also why I don't buy Gears of War figures. Yeah I've got 4, total. 2 Marcus's, because one I found at the flea market for 8 bucks and it had the better articulation, the SDCC Locus, and the Sniper Locus.I know they're different in ways, but I can't help but find them boring to look at, even when I pose them. (Though the Series 1 articulation probably is the problem. Can't reenact gameplay.)

I guess we'd have to see if they did it. I might change my mind seeing the products in the end. I know I'd at least get Celtic, since he was my favorite of the bunch.

Say what you want but I like AvP preds and would appreciate if NECA made them. I do have AvP Elder and Celtic and they don`t stand out from NECA preds that much. And about the differences those are quite present too. Elder have cape, mask on his shoulder and blue (wtf?) dreadlocks. When I`ll ahev some more free itme I`ll separate mandibles from his face and mek them more pronunced (they are too flat for my taste), already removed arm blades from both Elder and Celtic. I`d like NECA to do Chooper and maybe flashback preds.

Will this be the first lost predator release?

He's not one of the lost predators... he is just the classic predator (from the first movie) with the original helmet (which was used by the Gort Predator in the second movie)

In July NECA will release the Hound (the dog from Predators), Classic Masked (original pred from P1) and Elder (one of the lost predators from P2)

Maybe in September/October we will have City Hunter (P2), and two other lost (Shaman and Boar)  ;)

I thought the series 1 classic was the one from Predators and  this one is from the original Predator or are  they the exact same.

Also, are Neca making the one from Batman Deadend.

Cant wait for the SDCC to see lots of pics of them all   8)

And at the end, Randy talked about the Falconer's bird:

crazypredator2 asks: Dear Neca, are you going to re-release a Series 1 Falconer Predator with a robot bird as his accessory?

Randy:
Currently we have no available slot to release this in, our lineup is booked through 2012. If an opportunity opens up, like a retail exclusive, we'll consider it. We would have done of the bird originally as an accessory but it was a digital effect that was not completed until 6 months after we did all of our Predators sculpting.

To be honest I doubt they will be much different. Series 1 classic's paint application was fairly decent compared to the other Predators figures. From the photos released so far they look to be pretty good for a cheap figure.

i love that they released classic gort. not just do we get all preds ever seen in the original predator films, including predators, we also get a figure of the look classic Could have had before they changed mask aswell, it really feels like the collection will be complete. if they could only release the designs from avp, it would complete it all. and all remaining aliens

Gort is cool and so are the lost tribe.  But I wish Neca would delve into the realm of expanded universe Predators.  They could sell them through their own online store if they made one.  Kind of like Mattel has for the He-man figures.  Imagine the possibilities.!.!

If you go back a few pages there are pics of the Double Jointed knees that allow for a squatting position.

I read also that they'll have ball-jointed hips. That's so good to know. That v-crotch thing had run its coarse.

As cool as the double-jointed knees will be in allowing more pose-ability, it kind of worries me. I collected Street Fighter figures who also had the same type of knee joint and they were hard sometimes to get to move. NECA Predators already have a history of super stiff joints which leads to breaking of limbs. I don't want to have to get the super glue out for series 4. :(

Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: von on Jul 22, 2011, 04:56:25 PM
He was only asking.

Yes, those 3 will be in Series 4. Here's the line-up:

PREDATOR SERIES 4 - October, 2011

- City Hunter (Unmasked, Open Mouth/ Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Boar (Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Shaman (Predator 2)

PREDATOR SERIES 5 - January, 2012

- Lost Tribe - Stalker (Masked/ Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Guardian "Gort" (Masked/ Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Snake (Unmasked/ Predator 2)

PREDATOR SERIES 6 - Spring, 2012

- Lost Tribe - Warrior (Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Scout (Predator 2)
- Lost Tribe - Lost (Predator 2)


It seems they are still finding a way to release the masked version of the City Hunter Predator, for I don't see it in the line-up.

Post by: Shadow on Jul 22, 2011, 08:07:03 PM
there is so many preds, how much do they loose on including a masked head??. most other figures ive seen like freddy krueger and frank from donnie drako all had changeable heads, why not preds? yeh yeh i know, they are milking the licence as much as they can, but c'mon!, theres enough differ preds to not need to release countless of variants of the same one. if they won't do avp preds due to re-used parts, why are they doing so many versions of same preds then. its stupid (and yet im buying the variants lol)

I think the Masked P2 will be an exclusive, like Unmasked P1 was ;)

If you count one exclusive for each serie, we'll have 3 exclusives:

1- Masked P2
2- Battle Damage P2 with arm cut off and rebreather
3- Stealth P2

it would be cool if they had the lost preds in the next Predators film, it would be nice to see a connection to predator 2 that way, aswell as having more classic preds to fight these super preds etc

i'd like that, i was thinking of getting a second warrior anyway. i just hope its the brown variant because that was what i kinda wanted, since i only have the blue variant so far


More news from Twitter:

"How about a new Predator 2 pack as a follow-up to last years TRU Alien & Predator set? Something in the works speculate away"

His wristblades aren't released, but are inside the gauntlet. It cannot be seen if they are bloody. But it certainly looks cool on this fig!

EITHER WAY, has anyone kinda just looked at Boar and gone, "... No wrist blades? Aw man... Well you have a disc atleast... Right?"

Both Boar predators will be release  8)

But not in a "double-pack" i think...

Boars is  the one on the right...... right?
Brother Boar left?
Can't help but notice these predators remind me of Disc Masters not because they have discs but imo they resemble each other mask wise.
I think the Exclusive will be a masked battle damage Pussyface.

Goddamn!  So many figures to get!

I finally just got Battle Damaged Classic from Predators, and all I need left is Pred Hound. 

(and all of these!)

So far i got all Neca and McFarlane Preds (except McF Anytime). Looking forward to get upcoming predators as well. I must say the Lost Clan looks better than previous ones.

I feel as if NECA was looking for an opportunity to somehow release the trophy collection, it'd be be in the double-pack.
Perhaps a "Final-battle version pussyface" and a masked version if the one being released in series 4 isn't coming with a mask.

I know the Boar brothers won't be a double-pack and Boar will be released in series 4, I just meant it'd be a nice double-pack.
Imagine having a double-pack with 2 lost clan predator figures in it WITH one or two trophies. They did it with the Alien & Predator double, so It's a very awesome but unlikely possibility.

Off topic from my above content.

Which Predators are you guys looking forward too? Here's my list 1 to 9.

1. Gort (He's been an inspiration in a majority of my Predator art)
2. Ram (His mask is just brutal, plus he looks very intimidating!)
3. Boar (Unique mask, it's what I love about Predators.)
4. Borg (His armor design is truely amazing.)
5. Lost Hunter/Scout? (The one with the classic mask... Cool design, love the skin colouring.)
6. Hippie/Shaman (His dreads make him pretty old, so I'd like to have a wise-figure in my collection.)
7. Snake (He's near the bottom, because I'm just not fazed by his pattern.)
8. Brother Boar (He's near the bottom because the other's just have so much more to offer.)
9. Elder (released in latest series, so probably shouldn't have included - but some people don't have elder! Like me!)

So I'm guessing that the other 60% is the tree and base that will go with it? I mean it doesn't make a whole lot of sense if it doesn't have a tree or background with that grey color to match the cloaking. Neat idea, but its more optical illusion than anything, I mean the cloaked preds they have done before do the trick, and they will match what ever you put them in front of... well maybe not, they are kind of cloudy plastic. I was hoping for a battle damaged city hunter and Harrigan, making it the first human counter part- I'm with Shadow, hopefully it is Royce!

REALLY want that super-Predator skull.

Also I'm not sure they're going for the "optical illusion" effect with the Predator so much as they're making it look like he's in the middle of cloaking/uncloaking. There was an AvPR Wolf figure with a similar effect.

It's not Royce (NECA already said many times they wont make any humans from predators movies), and since it has two blades as accessories, i think the other figure will be another super-predator... but not the Falconer with his bird, i already asked and Randy said: "Not Correct!"  :-\

No, he's not in the middle of cloaking/uncloaking. He's on cloaking mode, but this "optical illusion" effect only makes sense if there's something black behind him...

The AvPR Wolf figure was in the middle of cloaking/uncloaking. Look at the colors of his body appearing:

You're assuming the Berserker in that pic is a final painted prototype. I'm not sure it is.

Why in god's name would you want figures of Adrian Brody and Danny Glover. You crazy.

They'd lose money. Through likeness rights, use of their character, etc they aren't going to make much because only a couple of douches want HUMAN figures, that's just selfish. Seriously. If you want humans, go play with hot toys.

Go f**k yourself, NECA makes dozens of human figures and they sell great. I'd buy an Adrien Brody or Danny Glover figure from them because then I don't have to spend $200 on a Hot Toys one and it'd look good with my other NECA figures in the same scale.

But it's about Predators not humans, which is precisely my argument. If you disagree, don't get upset and start using inappropriate language. It's just how I feel about it. Insted, how about you tell me how it could benefit the franchise? So I can get another perspective on this?

Because those human characters are cool and they'd look cool with the Predators? Like, how many more Predator figures could they really do for 'Predators'? They've done multiple versions of all 4 on-screen Predators and the Hound. Why not an Adrien Brody figure with the AA-12 or something? I mean, eventually they're going to run out of Predators to do. They've already got all of the Lost Predators sculpted and ready to roll. It's not like people are asking for humans in place of Predators, they want humans IN ADDITION TO Predators.

That user has every right to post whatever he wants. There was no need for name calling. Unless it's in your nature. And if you are so angry why not just hit your head against a wall? Maybe that will help.
Back to topic. I and others asked Neca on twitter regarding human characters and their replies were like yours but gentler and that doesn't mean there is no need for human characters. By the way Neca is the same company who made figures of different ghosts but not Ghostbusters. So that also makes sense? I doubt it.The movie was about Ghostbusters if my memory serves me correctly. Harrigan is brilliant because he managed to kill City Hunter.

As far as I know only Billy, Royce and Dutch have been the only Predator human figures released but not by NECA but hot toys instead. Like all hot toys figures they cost an arm and a leg :-[

Damnit, that postpones the possibility of a Dutch figure for the time being, side note, I have heard the re-releases of series 1 and 2 have been released, does anyone have any pictures of them? Oh yeah, the new berserker looks pretty cool!
That's the part that confuses me. They can do a bunch of Terminator figures with Arnie's likeness, but can't do Dutch?

I'll ask about it on Twitter...

It's a different movie, and therefore, different licensing rights.

Just because you have the rights to Arnie in one movie, doesn't mean you can use his likeness from another.

You have to optain the rights to use Arnie's likeness, then you have to optain the rights to use his likeness from a specific movie.

Pretty sure that Arnold Swartzanegger gave the his likeness rights JUST to the Terminator franchise, so who ever has the liscence for that can make Arnie terminator. Which is silly, I agree. I doubt Danny Glover is gonna suddenly give his likeness rights to a toy company. It's really serious stuff, and I don't think some people understand how some Actors just don't want to do that. And I don't want to bash a company I love, but man those Twilight figures are disgusting, I doubt Royce aka adrian brody is just gonna be all okay with it, "Oh yeah... So you're gonna make me? Will it look good? IT WONT. LOOK AT EDWARD CULLEN, MAN. HE LOOKS LIKE A MELTED BARBIE WITH SHORT HAIR AND A TRENCH COAT!"
However, I find that a way around this is to release the human characters!... Without heads....

@Georgeromero - I wasn't angry, I was a wee-bit drunk and getting tired of people asking for human characters.
It was all through out this thread, so I just snapped. I apologized, so uh... Yeah. Nice random attack. I'm shaken.
Not stirred though. Because James Bond doesn't like his martinis like that. By the way, after someone apologizes. You generally don't tell them to hit their head against a wall, because quite frankly you're just being needlessly insulting so you're just as bad.
Nice.

Well I dunno, I can't speak to the Twilight toys because I haven't really seen them and don't care about them, but I imagine if they were doing something like a Ripley figure and got Sigourney Weaver's likeness rights they'd go out of their way to make sure it was pretty much perfect.

I mean NECA's human characters that are based on real people generally tend to be pretty accurate given the scale. Their T2 ones are great, the Freddy Krueger ones have been great, Robocop is great, Silence of the Lambs figures, Sin City figures, Beetlejuice, The Exorcist, Clash of the Titans, Hellraiser, Harry Potter, Saw, Scarface... I'd definitely say that the Twilight figures are the exception and not the rule.

Also I'm 100% confident that if they did an 'Aliens' Ripley figure of her from the end of the movie, with the grenade belt and the flamethrower/pulse rifle duct taped together, and it had Weaver's likeness, it would absolutely fly off the shelves.

I and others asked Neca on twitter regarding human characters and their replies were like yours but gentler and that doesn't mean there is no need for human characters. By the way Neca is the same company who made figures of different ghosts but not Ghostbusters. So that also makes sense? I doubt it.The movie was about Ghostbusters if my memory serves me correctly. Harrigan is brilliant because he managed to kill City Hunter.

from twitter:

"problem is Fox doesn't have the likeness rights of any actor we'd want to do a figure of at present"

This isn't the only thing they said, there were different answers.

As far as I know only Billy, Royce and Dutch have been the only Predator human figures released but not by NECA but hot toys instead. Like all hot toys figures they cost an arm and a leg :-[

Yeah, the new dea-clocked one.

I think the quality varies for a lot of the franchises you mentioned.
I've seen some really nicely painted Clash of the titans, Freddy Kruegar, etc. Then I've seen some plain aweful ones.
Heck, even with my Predators. It seems in Australia we get a lot of the rejected crappy 2 minute paint jobs on the NECA figures, which is highly disappointing because Australia really flourishes the NECA market atleast in the Australasia area.

Maybe they might release humans from the Alien or Predator franchise in the future, and even if they do. I hope they're decently painted.

If they are going to have 3 variants. My guess is they will be , unmasked open mouth, unmasked closed mouth with battle wounds, and masked.

These are looking great ! NECA will get our money through no less than 6 :o variants of the City Hunter ! I am thinking of their AVP:R Predator variants. If history is any indicator, I suspect they will cover as many variants as possible, just like they did in AVP:R line.

Behold !
I predict we are in for:

1. Open Mouth City Hunter
2. Closed Mouth City Hunter
2. Masked City Hunter
3. Cloaked Masked City Hunter
4. Battle Damaged unmasked City Hunter with arm damage
5. Battle Damaged Masked City Hunter with arm damage
6. Half Cloaked / De-Cloaking Masked City Hunter

Did I miss any?  :D

Seems to be about right. Not sure about the closed mouth city hunter though. That figure probably wouldn't be very popular unless it was thrown into a 2 pack, which it hasn't been. I guess we'll see.

I like the new possible poses available to this range of figures. I'll have plenty of fun with this! I doubt it's prone to breaking either, otherwise NECA would just be working backwards. I hate preposed figures like the Wolf and Predalien were, so I encourage all the future figures to be like this!

I find it funny NECA is including more articulation, whilst hot toys removed some for better detail.
Never liked the early hot toys stuff... Looked like bobble heads on crack.

With all the better quality and paintjobs, making hot toys more realistic looking (but sadly not accurate, at least not the older figs, the new preds are good), i'd rather have less articulation on them, and more articulation on NECA's less expensive figs

The only one I'm probably not going to get is open mouth. But then again, I said the same thing about the elder till I saw it in person. But it's not how I remember City Hunter. i remember him prime with his helmet, or with bullet holes, and later a missing hand. I'll get that version when they release it.

But then again, lets see. So far I passed on the Hounds instead of Elder.

Thanks for this! Can you tell me the names (as we know them to be) so I can tell which ones are which. NECA basically renamed all of them. Like which one is Ram, Borg, etc.?

Question is, which names are most official, those fan names such as hippie, or the names on the figures like shaman etc. to be honest, Shaman sounds alot cooler than Hippie

Aw such a long wait for Series 6! That has the coolest set of Lost Preds in my opinion. But I can't wait for Shaman...he looks badass.

Yeah I'm also gonna get every single one. Any hardcore Predator fan would highly consider these.
They're all re-done, NECA has learned from their mistakes from the previous line and we can pose them in crazy positions now!
Heck, I could even get Predators to do missionary if I felt like it.

Either way, every single f**king one of them is on my want list.
I'm gonna get the toysrus exclusive too, just because of the masked predator 2 and spears.
I think I'm gonna jizz again. TOWELL. *runs away*

No doubt! It's gonna look incredible to have every Lost Pred displayed together with the badass elder leading the pack in the middle. I don't mind his articulation as is because I already have him posed perfectly the way I want. The new articulation came just in time for P2 since he has many iconic poses. I'm also getting the two-pack :P How could I not with those spears and masked P2. Gonna be sweeet! I'm glad I started collecting figures when I did. I feel I came in just when figures look amazing to display and are accurate.

Series 5 - June 2012
Series 6 - December 2012

Post by: Sabretooth on Sep 24, 2011, 03:19:50 AM
I don't have an opinion for series 5 and 6, but series 4 will most likely be released late November, say like 21st of November in US. And it will be about 2 weeks after international, since NECA likes to make me wish I was American or atleast lived there.
Same for the two pack.


By the way, I just watched Predator 2 and well it looks like he shot the spear from his gauntlet.
And I kinda just realised this too... The helmet and spear should still be intact. The mask is in the butchers on the ground floor with the 'ground' beef. :P and the spear is at the bottom of the alley way along with harrigans gun.

ANYWAY back on topic! Super excited! I will most definitely have my girlfriend ship them over from the states for me. ^___^

I saw a post on here a month ago I think or close to it. Practically saying that NECA said no, not anymore as it would force them to increase the price of the figures. However they were thinking of releasing a trophy pack, with all the trophies.
Like I said not sure how legit this is, just remember seeing it around here!

would a skull really increase costs that much, compared to including spears and stuff? i mean, some figures WITH accessories costs the same as berserker and those new accessory-lacking figures (aliens included). i can see the point regarding that big skull, but the rest...uhh, they are not that big, not any worse than having a skull in each 2-pack and a spine with skull in the gort package.

I was talking online for other regions, to actually them instock in stores outside of the USA. It's roughly 1-4 months, I don't know why the huge delay. But I know from experience that Australia had to wait 3 months I think, for series 3. Which broke my heart. I eventually ended up buying from Amazon anyway as they're $30 a peice here.

I hope we get an update soon. Since Gears of Wars 3 released their twitter page has been dead. Last I heard they were submitting the box designs which probably are practically the same as Elders box my guess. I hope the final product has a paint job that is close to the prototype.

I gotta get this figure!  I dont hate the idea of them being time travelers.  I immediately imagine the endless possibilities of them making a movie with the Lost Preds, maybe have a a scene of them watching Dutch and Anytime fight.  The idea behind this is somewhat how they did in Back to the Future where you see a familiar scene from a different POV.  They could redo a classic scene from Pred 1 with one or two Lost preds watching, then transport to another hunt or something.   Just my imagination, i think the traveler of time statement opens that door.

I gotta get this figure!  I dont hate the idea of them being time travelers.  I immediately imagine the endless possibilities of them making a movie with the Lost Preds, maybe have a a scene of them watching Dutch and Anytime fight.  The idea behind this is somewhat how they did in Back to the Future where you see a familiar scene from a different POV.  They could redo a classic scene from Pred 1 with one or two Lost preds watching, then transport to another hunt or something.   Just my imagination, i think the traveler of time statement opens that door.

i think preds have a long enough lifespan to be able to watch Duch vs pred without time traveling :P

Man, I love this. Leg patterns could of been a little more yellow but overall, spot on! I kinda wished the mask was more of a crimson though. I feel this is already my favourite Predator figure o.O. And to your response Requiem, since AVP is the only thing left, im pretty sure NECA would love to give us figures of them. But then again, the only major differences were the blades and the masks and the Elder's cape.

still they can pump out endless variants of the same pred, yet they can not pump out variants that are Different preds. honestly i'll be angry if they pass on the AvP preds because that's all that stand between me and a COMPLETE set of every pred featured on screen in the pred and avp films.

I would really love to see a accurate avp elder, mcfarlanes was plain awfull.  Celtic was good but NECA would still do it better and better proportions. scar was inaccurate and needs a figure, Chopper was...not even done, we need a 7" chopper!. they could release them in two waves like this:

Series 1
Celtic
Scar
Chopper

series 2
Elder
Ancient
Unmasked scar (yes cus i know they won't release him with alternate heads).



I'm also lacking more aliens, i want neca to continue with Alien 3, Res, and AvP to give us a complete selection of aliens too. i can't demand all queens, especially not res because it was identical to Aliens but browner and i differ eggsac(womb). the AvP queen would be cool though!.

i really wonder why neca at don't at least make the Aliens queen, it can't be any more heavy than the 18" alien and i think it would sell very well

I heard the last time they were asked about making a queen, they said they'd make it EPIC but expensive. my response was "And your point is? MAKE IT ALREADY!" lol.

They said the queen would most likely be a 100 figure Because they'd do the entire egg chamber from aliens to go with it.

seriously dude, this made my day!. i hope it's also detachable so that i can pose it (on a base i guess for ballance) without the sac, for Aliens ending scene poses etc. and it will be scaled to fit with the 7" figures i guess?

is that because they want people to but the unmasked first then say like "crap, the masked one is soo much cooler" (obvious) and go buy it too. if i am to chose one myself it'll be masked. i dunno if they'll just use classic's mask or if they would go through the effort to make a new sculpt because, despite being close to identical, scar have his own touch to it, even if it's minor

Series X
- Unmasked Scar
- Celtic
- Chopper

Series Y
- Masked Scar
- Elder
- Anicent

Series Z
- Wolf
- f**k-Shot (Predator that blew a hole in the ship in AVPR)

I should've chosen my words better, they said they WOULDN'T make a queen because they'd make it too epic and expensive. Big figures don't sell as smoothly as 7 inchers. Thing is, anyone complained about their Belrog? I never saw one on a store shelf and it dominated my friends room.

As for the AVP figures, the only 1 I'd buy is Celtic. I wouldn't buy any aliens or other predators.

I could see a Queen as a Comic-Con exclusive for like $100 or so. I couldn't see it in official public retail. I also don't see the point to re-do Wolf. If im going to be honest, I like the Wolf as it is. Still, nice to see a new one.

Also, Kyle from NECA has confirmed that the pics of the P2 figure I posted are of a "test" shot...not the actually factory figure.

So, the coloring on the chest of the P2 will not be what we see on the final figure.

Post by: Sabretooth on Oct 27, 2011, 12:08:30 AM
Yeah if NECA was to ever do the AVP figures I could see 3 waves and 1 exclusive 2-pack.
Seems to be the go these days, however I don't know if they'd merge aliens with predators. Highly possible though.

This is my idea of it.

Series 1 -

Unmasked Scar
Chopper
AVP Alien

Series 2 -
Celtic
Masked Scar
Grid

Exclusive 2-pack -
Ancient w/ AVP Alien with a battle-damaged head, combi-stick and a base.

They would make a Queen, it's just not easy to re-produce, so it'll only happen if series 4, 5, 6 of the predator 2 line is successful. Therefore the profits would be invested into getting the licenses to do other lines such as AVP, alien 3 and alien resurection.

As for the picture, I saw it on facebook. I came. I came hard. I thought it wouldn't be the final figure though, the paint ap is great but it's not entirely accurate from the set pictures I've seen.

Here's what I'd like to see:

Series V:
Battle Damaged Unmasked Scar w/ Predalien burster
Celtic Predator
Chopper Predator

Series Delta:
Masked Scar Predator
Battle Damaged Celtic w/ melted blades and attachable net
Elder Predator

Series Wiggly-Woo:
Ancient Predator
The Other Ancient Predator
The Ancient Predator with the Scar Mask

Series Why did the frikking TARDIS explode already we've been waiting to find out for a year and a half now:
Buddy Predator (aka ****shot)
Unmasked Redesigned Wolf
Battle Damaged City Hunter with Rebreather, closed mandibles and removable arm (if they haven't made it already)

Plus figures of the Aliens, and maybe a "Predators of AVP" 2-Pack with Scar's alternate mandible position and a redesigned Wolf Masked.

You know what I'd like to see? A "Final Battle" 2-Pack with a repainted, battle-damaged Closed Mandibles Original Predator and a cauterized-arm, roaring City Hunter with an attachable net projectile. It probably won't happen, but it would be cool!

Also, Kyle from NECA has confirmed that the pics of the P2 figure I posted are of a "test" shot...not the actually factory figure.

So, the coloring on the chest of the P2 will not be what we see on the final figure.

Can't.......wait

Boar looks awesome! Any word on whether the wrist gauntlet blasters will open up, though?

Here's what I'd like to see:

Series V:
Battle Damaged Unmasked Scar w/ Predalien burster
Celtic Predator
Chopper Predator

Series Delta:
Masked Scar Predator
Battle Damaged Celtic w/ melted blades and attachable net
Elder Predator

Series Wiggly-Woo:
Ancient Predator
The Other Ancient Predator
The Ancient Predator with the Scar Mask

Series Why did the frikking TARDIS explode already we've been waiting to find out for a year and a half now:
Buddy Predator (aka ****shot)
Unmasked Redesigned Wolf
Battle Damaged City Hunter with Rebreather, closed mandibles and removable arm (if they haven't made it already)

Plus figures of the Aliens, and maybe a "Predators of AVP" 2-Pack with Scar's alternate mandible position and a redesigned Wolf Masked.

You know what I'd like to see? A "Final Battle" 2-Pack with a repainted, battle-damaged Closed Mandibles Original Predator and a cauterized-arm, roaring City Hunter with an attachable net projectile. It probably won't happen, but it would be cool!

Spot on, mate

Know what should be a comicon exclusive or Something?

Scarface.

Seriously, his armor is AVP style, mostly. If they make AVP figures, they should make Scarface. Leave the battle damaged Celtic for a 2 pack with Grid.

2 pack with grid is actually not a bad idea, it is as related as it can be. unlike berserker and city hunter

Indeed. they could also make more money on the same sculpt by repainting it Brownish and gloss it up, and sell it as the res queen. as far as i know they used the regular queen design but it was just more slimy and more brown, unless i missed something? (i'm not counting the eggsac or womb now). i would def buy both versions because it would fully complete the set, if they'd relaese all regular warriors and the newborn that is...oh, and the avp queen, that'd be badass

Post by: Gosutoraida on Oct 28, 2011, 10:45:18 PM
The Rez Queen was slightly smaller than a typical Queen. If it was sold as a variant, I think it should be less expensive. An AVP Queen would be pretty cool. But wouldn't the figure be like, what, Fifteen to Eighteen inches? The Queen was bigger than Aliens Queen.

are you sure that it wasn't just smaller in the first scene when it was young? and bigger in the end. we never really saw it compared to a uman beside it in the end, and newborn as we know are pretty big. but who knows

I laugh about you and your provocation, believe me.  ;D
The original,  the Elder and the City hunter in 18" with great scuplts (NECA) is all i want, more than enough.
I have no interest collecting 1000x inaccurate crappy looking wannabe Predators and Aliens like you  ;D

Yes, the paint looks on many areas false, agree with you. The color varies too strong

The chest looks to narrow in compare to the great proto.
Overalll the proto plays in a completely different  league.
But i think for 7" it looks decent.

However i have no love for the scale. I just collecting 18"

I'm definately looking forward to the masked version.

But seeing how nice the quality was on the 18" classic, i think a city hunter would look very good though...but then i would want the Warrior alien from Aliens as a 18" too to keep it even. so best would be to not have any more 18"s from the alien and pred franchise

the old hot toys where meh. but the Predators line and forth have kept a better quality both in looks and accuracy. As for the hot toys 18", it might be as good if not better...BUT if you think the regular 1/6 are expensiv already, the 1/4 WILL be even more so. that's where neca wins, people with little money can affort em. if i had the money, i would buy both hot toys and neca, but since i don't, i'm glad neca exists.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to do that as I get them by internet. And darn it they messed up the forehead pattern!!! Argh! It's almost perfect...so close...but no! Why? Why? Why can't they just put the black stripes into straight lines?
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Sabretooth on Nov 04, 2011, 09:32:15 AM
Yeah... I don't know man. That seems pretty weird from NECA.
From what I recall, most companies use a stencil for those kinda things.
Either way, the Predators I'm waiting for the most are Lost, Ram, Snake, Gort and Scout (Classic).
I'm obviously getting every Lost predator, it's just I have my favourites. :P
It's great though, because as a figure customiser - there's so many body and armor variations now so I'm basically having an orgasm.

ANYWAY... Pity I buy the new figures online too, since they take a month to be released here.
I'll probably get my girlfriend to go scouting in Toys'R'US in America for me. :3

Any word on whether the wrist gauntlet is openable (the part that fired the plasma/pulse rocket), or if City Hunter's netgun and backpack are removable? I find it worrisome that they aren't listed in the accessories...
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Sabretooth on Nov 04, 2011, 11:57:55 AM
The wrist-rocket was basically a 5 second scene, so I don't really care if that isn't included.
None of the previous predators have an open wrist computer, so I'm not expecting one of those either.
I think the netgun is removeable and the backpack should be also.

That f***ing sucks. The lack of a wrist projectile also means that Boar has literally one weapon.

Well yeah, only one weapon... And the fact he's a f**king Predator?
He'd beat you to death with one finger.

But seriously now, I think the backpack should be removeable atleast. It'd just be a simple little clip if anything. >_>
Only because.... As a customiser, it's nice to have that kinda flexibility with figures.

True, Boar could, and the disk is one of the coolest weapons. At the same time, it would have been really nice if they had gone the extra mile with all the features, and the projectile is a weapon rather than a last resort like the self-destruct device. Then, they could have truly claimed that theirs' blows Hot Toys and McFarlane's out of the water!

Maybe they'll give us a removable backpack and netgun for the battle damaged versions, assuming they even make them...but seriously, the netgun is one of the Preds' signature weapons...I don't get it...

Well I'm sure none of us know for sure if the back pack is removeable or not.
So don't worry, I can probably guarantee the wrist laser wont be functional though.
But you can just imagine it. :P

I don't care for the backpack, its such a small one that it's not necessery. the projectile isn't that important either. but i agree on the Netgun. at least if they made it removeable and had another that can be hold in his hand, i it can't be included in the mounted one directly.

I think the Shaman its the only one that NECA really nailed the paint job.

Look at these pics, his body is not just white. There's some brown-wash on the head and yellow on the chest area to make the sculpt more visible  ;)

head looks better in front view but the black looks awful on that sideview. the netting looks very rushed too. but as i said, he looks much better in full view. and i know very well myself that pics usually reveals minor stuff that you don't care about when looking at it in real life. so its stil la decent figure and i'm sure to get all the preds

Shaman is my favorite for sure. He looks really awesome overall and I love his staff. Disappointed with City Hunter's paint. It looks so amateurish. Granted these pics look like they were taken with flash on which always makes figures look 10x worse than they are, I still have a feeling of 'meh' about him. I loved the paint of Elder and Classic (compared to earlier waves and was hoping that was a sign of better things to come) but maybe not :/

Since we all know that the skin color is all wrong (the white skin still bugs me, maybe a orange wash painting can save him) the only thing i dont like its the fact that the helmet color doesnt match the color from the armor. This is how it was suposed to be:

What i dislike:

Body-Proportions !
First time i see a Neca Predator with inaccurate body, looks to narrow and somehow childish.
Berserker have better proportions.

City Hunters physique reminds me on a company....  no i dont say the name. ;D

The colour on the skin varies too strong, directly visible.
The legs have a completely different paint than the torso.

But overall the figure is ok for the scale and the price.

i think it's the pictures. i went through all of them, and on some it really looks weird in proportions.
i don't agree on the armor, the whole thing should be one color, not different colors on each piece, though i do agree on the body - legs don't match the torso, and the overall color is much different from the prototype pictures, AND most importanty, from the creature itself.

i'd give him 4/5, the sculpt is really exceptional, and for this money, it's an awesome figure. a little repaint and he's going to look absolutely perfect.

now neca, give us an 18 incher! and paint it like you did with 1/4 P1!

Don't know about you guys, but this City Hunter resembles bobble heads. It just doesn't look right no matter how i look at him. I don't think the problem's with my eyes. Looks like some cheap custom figure done by amateurs. I'm disappointed. Now let's see how this is in person.

Edit: I think the preblem is with his neck, like he doesn't have one.

I have some minor issues with City Hunter, but I'll still be purchasing him.  His body does have an awkward Hot Toys look to it - i think it's due to the added articulation.  I'd rather have less articulation and more film accurate proportions.  His mask looks a bit bulky like some of the custom masks other users have made.  I think all NECA predators have short necks (and big feet), but City Hunter's neck looks especially short.  Those are all sculpt issues, which bother me much more than paint.  I can repaint him myself, so the color doesn't bother me a bit.  I'm not trying to be hard on NECA, I think he looks better and I prefer him over the McFarlane and Hot Toys versions.  Too bad the masked City Hunter only comes in a 2 Pack, I have zero interest in Berserker.

i think he looks best in the neutral pose, just like Revoltech's predator, the new joints kinda makes him look out of proportion when posed, Just like revoltech. i didn't see this issue on the old joints. i'm glad im the type who displays my figures in pretty neutral poses

Honestly it looks alright the city hunter. The 7 inch scaled figures are never as great as the prototypes, as we know by now. I'm just glad its and an improvement over mcfarlanes figures. I can live with what NECA is giving us. I'm not gonna make any quick judgements till I get the figure. If I have anything to complain about its NECA giving us a cheap backgroud for Berserker.

if city hunters sculpt should suck at any point, that should mean that EVERY other lost hunter using that very same part/parts also suck. mind that

I can live with the paint job done on him, but the masked version sucks because of it's proportions. Boar, Shaman and etc don't have such big heads compared to this one. I don't remember Pussyface having a big head in Predator 2 either. Neca won't lose money because i don't get, as a matter of fact i will still buy it. It's just that Neca seems to be getting lazy which doesn't make me happy.

If you look at this pic, you'll see the head is not that big, actually is smaller than Berserker's head:

Another pic showing that Berserker's head is bigger than City Hunter:

You only think the P2 head is bigger because of the shoulder pad. The shoulder pad also make him look like he has no neck:

What you have to do, is lower the shoulder pad, and he'll look much more cooler:

Look at this pic, the shoulder pad is hiding behind his dreads, this simple fact makes the neck become noticiable and shows that the head has the right size:

Post by: Shadow on Nov 11, 2011, 11:20:19 AM
yeh, i think it's both the shoulder pad and the angle on some o the pics, the slightly from-top view makes the neck dissapear under the mask too. i actually have no complaints on this figure, except the skin being too bright. and the reason i think the masked's skin looked better than the unmasked might be because there is no forehead with messed up patterns that distracts the rest.

I actually think the masked Predator looks good. We're just not used to seeing it in full light, and photographs of figures never look as good as when you have them in your hands.

I'm planning on getting the 2-pack (anyone want to buy a half-cloaked berserker Pred?  ;D ), Boar and Shaman. To be honest, I'm more interested in the masked City Hunter than the unmasked version.

Indeed. pics are also most often closer up and bigger than the actual figure which enhance the visible mistakes on it. so yeh, i always think like this "ok, it looks good enough on pics, then i go with that, and get surprised on how good it looks in my hands"

Definitely.  If NECA wanted to reuse a sculpt, I think a cloaked masked Anytime would have been a more popular choice to complement City Hunter.

I"ll probably buy this two pack for the masked City Hunter.  I'll either sell Berserker or use him for some nutty custom figure.

Someone already asked this on twitter:

Q=why cloaked Berserker? wouldn't fans want a cloaked Classic more? just a thought.. and both figures look GREAT :)

A=thanks & Stealth or Cloaked Classic is a definite possibility but for another method of release.

Sushi or no sushi, that 2-Pack looks AWESOME! I must have it! I must!!!!

But aaaaarrrgh! They messed up the unmasked forehead! They messed up the forehead!!! I hope that this doesn't bode ill for Snake and Borg, especially the latter's complex forehead pattern.

And another thing...on the back of the 2-Pack, it shows Stalker as coming last in the release order, with Borg and Ram. Does this mean that the release order has been changed, and I have to wait until August to get all the ones I really want? Stalker, Borg, and Ram were my top 3 for purchasing, and I was happy in the knowledge that at least one of them would come sooner than the others....

I called up over 5 f**king TRU's in California (Near LA, Pasadena, etc) and they didn't have them.
BUT they are up on the website!!!
They're 17.99 each, be aware you do need to pay state tax.
But you get free shipping :3

You need to type this in exactly, "Predator series 4"
Ordered them and I should get them by the end of the week.

Hope this helps guys

Awesome! I probably will display Boar with the disc in the holster, looks more intimidating just standing without any weapons. Are there any reports that these can break easily? Hope not. Can a few of you guys do some reviews if you have them?
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Xenomrph on Nov 29, 2011, 06:21:23 PM
I still haven't been able to fit Shaman's spear through his hand, and both Shaman and Boar have kind of loose hip joints but it's not really a big deal. Boar's disc doesn't like to sit in the holster very securely so I have to be careful that I don't lose it accidentally or something.

I haven't had any issues with the joints or anything, but I also haven't tried putting them in any extreme poses or anything.

My local TRU had only one new fig on the peg, a city hunter, which is awesome, because he was my number 1 priority- Paint job looks good, no bent or broken parts. The ball joints are fantastic, and all the joints work well, no immediate fear of breakage. Only bummer is no extra articulation in the feet, to allow him to bend at the knees and have him in a squat position- minor complaint, great fig!

I don't know if it has been stated already, but when can we expect the TRU 2 pack out?

Br()wnie
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series

The two-pack should be released within the next 2 weeks.

I seem to recall seeing the prototype figure in that exact pose. I guess they removed that articulation for the production run?

I just ordered all three Predators from Series 4.  A youtube review said they were $19.99 at a toysrus store, I got mine from Toyrus.com (free shipping) for $17.99 each.  I think $15.99 would be fair, but $17.99 is pretty steep!  But what am I gonna do, not buy them?  :P

I hope these don't have the same breakage issues as Series 3.  I'm still waiting for a replacement arm for my masked Anytime.

She was like, "I SPOKE TO YOU EARLIER THIS WEEK...WE DON'T HAVE THEM IN STOCK...YOUR BEST BET IS TO ORDER THEM ONLINE." HA, what a bitch!

I like to look at the figures in person and pick out the best ones. She must be really miserable working there.

Wasn't the total for all 3 like $54 which gave you the option of free shipping?  I was going to order from there, but I figured I'd just order one at a time  :-\  Save money for a little bit.

Lol, the same thing kinda happened to me, accept they just don't answer my call anymore, probably because of caller ID.  I used to frequently call in for the previous figures.

No idea, dude. I'm currently visiting the states. I don't even think they've been released in Australia yet.
Generally in Australia the figures vary from $25-30. Which sucks ass but y'know.

Wait what? But to acquire gort a little bit earlier, you are spending more money on predators just to take a few bits from them to re assemble them and repaint them?

I see no logic.



EDIT:
Guys, Masked city hunter stupidly comes with berserker right?

I guess that means if I want city hunter without spending too much I'll just have to get him unmasked for $30AUS instead of $60AUS for the twopack.

Why is it so damn expensive over here?

Here ya go!

One minor nitpick...

The P2 has a REALLY hard time holding the disk he came with, simply becase his hand isn't sculpted to be doing it.  So, in the pic, he's hold an old McFarlane P2 disk (which is actually a bit bigger than the NECA disk).

One minor nitpick...

The P2 has a REALLY hard time holding the disk he came with, simply becase his hand isn't sculpted to be doing it.  So, in the pic, he's hold an old McFarlane P2 disk (which is actually a bit bigger than the NECA disk).

Wait what? But to acquire gort a little bit earlier, you are spending more money on predators just to take a few bits from them to re assemble them and repaint them?

I see no logic.



EDIT:
Guys, Masked city hunter stupidly comes with berserker right?

I guess that means if I want city hunter without spending too much I'll just have to get him unmasked for $30AUS instead of $60AUS for the twopack.

Why is it so damn expensive over here?

I'm currently in America, the price of figures here is far cheaper. Therefore I'm not held by "high prices".
Each figure here is like $19 so I really don't mind.

Plus Gort is one of - if not my favourite predator, so I will buy him when he's released. But in the meantime, I'd rather a Gort predator then a city hunter with a lame paint job on the head. :/
Plus, I'll be stacking 2 packs. They sell for a shit load overseas. Mhm business.

Man, toysrus.com is killing me.  I ordered all three predators last week and they haven't shipped yet  :'( I know they're busy with the holiday rush, but come on guys.

In the meantime, I've been watching reviews on youtube and they look awesome.  The sculpts look great, and I'm looking forward to doing some custom paint.

I'm super psyched for these figures, but for the $18-$20 they should really come with more accessories!  NECA's new Terminator and Freddy figures are cheaper and come with alternate heads.  City Hunter just comes with a disk.  They could have thrown in an alternate closed mouth head,  or a base to stand on, or a spear + bloody skull.  I understand why NECA put the Masked City Hunter in a 2-pack from a business angle, and I'm probably going to buy the 2-pack, but I think most of us agree that we're paying for Masked City Hunter and cloaked Berserker is just along for the ride, unlike last years Alien+Predator which was a good match up.  I still say a cloaked Anytime would have made for a WAY more enticing 2-pack.  Okay, I'm done complaining now.  :laugh:

This is getting better by the minute. First of all Elder Predator was missing it's gun and knife. Then City Hunter's paint looks nowhere near to the one in Predator 2. And now we have to drill the hand of Shaman to make it hold the spear? We have supported Neca by buying their AvP figures until now and will do so because we love them. But they should release these figures in a more proper way. Perhaps they need someone who should control the quality of products so there won't be defect items.

I thought the lost preds, when originally announced, were going to come with a different skull from the showcase as well.  Must've been another false hype. 

So, I went to my local TRU today, and the store finally had like 3 city hunters, a shaman, and one boar.  Unfortunately, I only had enough on me to buy one, so I chose the Boar.  My thinking was that he is the hot one to get, and I can probably come back later and get the others.  I'm kinda torn on city hunter, I want the figure, but cant decide if I should get the masked 2 pack or the unmasked.  AND, I wish the store would take out the freakin AvP wolf figures

Yep!

And if I am no wrong, all the skulls are already sculped... maybe someday they'll release them in a pack with City Hunter Battle Damage (with the rebreather). Well, that's what i hope  ;D

Until now they are keeping their promisses... when the Berserker (stealth in the trees) was showed sometime ago, people asked them to release him... same thing with the super-pred-skull... and now they are releasing them in the 2-pack with City Hunter...

All we have to do is wait and hope for the best  ::)

I can appreciate NECA holding off at the expense of raising the price, but now I'm wondering why I had to pay more for the latest figure than the last series.  When I purchased the elder at TRU, it was 14.99 plus tax, yesterday it was 17.99 plus tax.  Not too much I know, as that is cheaper than other places, and I dont mind paying that because to me it's worth it.  We've waited a long time for these lost preds, and until last year didnt imagine we'd ever see them.

I was wondering that too. When i got a set of the Predators movie preds if was about $44 from the Big Bad Toy Store. And at TRU they where about $15 (last time i checked) Now i've been checking out places to buy they series 4 and its all in the $50+ $60+ range. Maybe the prices are just going up?
And... it seems like they where about $20 or more for each on Amazon from the start too. Pricey pricey!

Is there any word on the price of this year's 2-pack?  Last year I got the Anytime+Alien set for $25.  Now, City Hunter alone is about $19, so are we expecting the 2-pack to be closer to $40?  :-X

City Hunter looks awesome masked, but I'm still not sold on the 2-pack.  Maybe if the second figure was more desirable, but Berserker?

Masked City Hunter + Warrior Alien = WIN

I agree.  I think someone here said it best by saying Ebay was about to be swamped with Berserker figs.  I honestly wasnt a fan of his look or the movie really, and we already have a cloaked figure from SDCC.  This new figure only makes sense IF YOU HAVE THE DIORAMA BACKDROP!!

Speaking of Diorama, how many here are planning on making one for some or all of the Lost Preds once we have them all?
I've been planning one on paper of what would work best, foam, plastic, or go full retard and make scale molds and have orangeish lights like in the ship.

Agreed. A new Berserker is pointless, and that movie sucked.  If NECA wanted to re-use a mold, they should have gone for a cloaked Anytime, or a warrior alien.

I've definitely been thinking of making a diorama to display the Lost Predators.  But doing is right is going to be a big undertaking, and I might be too lazy for it  :P

Now, if only toysrus.com would ship the Predator figures I ordered last week  >:(

Hopefully next year, Neca would start an Alien series and we could get a new AVP two-pack. I'd vision it as either as Celtic vs AVP Drone (or simply Grid) or Scar and the Runner.

Got my series 4 Predators today too.  Very cool figures!  Sculpts are great, but the paint kind of sucks on City Hunter and Shaman.  Boar's paint is good.  By the way, I repainted City Hunter already (more pics in custom figure thread)

At first, I was leaning away from the 2-pack.  But seeing how awesome the unmasked City Hunter is makes me want the masked one too.  Damn you NECA for taking all my money  :P

WOW! Great job ,man!

I just got City Hunter a few days ago, and he looks awesome!  Too bad he's a bit taller than the rest of the crowd. 

I also just ordered Scar and Celtic from McFarlane for quite a sum of money, but I need to get atleast two figs from each film  :D

looks great. I think that it's either repaint all figures or none, not only a few because that will make the contrast even bigger. i mean, if there are a few decent and a few less than decent, having a repaint this awesome beside even the decent ones will make a huge contrast

Post by: Sabretooth on Dec 09, 2011, 08:43:26 PM
I just received my trio in the mail about 20 minutes ago.
Felt like a little kid on christmas, I opened them up faster then I could take a piss.

As a lot of you have said, Shaman's right hand is unable to hold the staff. But that doesn't bother me at all.
City Hunter's crouch and butt covers were way up, I had to drag them down and in the process the man bag fell off. WIN.
Boar has a big head... I never knew that until I had him next to the other two. Haha.

Overall, they're nice. The paint apps could obviously be better, but Boar is definitely the best painted in the series, shaman the worst.

Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Peakius Baragonius on Dec 10, 2011, 04:57:47 AM
These look awesome! I've asked for Boar and Shaman for Christmas, and mostly paid for the 2-Pack myself. I decided to pass on the Unmasked City Hunter because of the paint, though I do feel a tiny twinge of regret... :'(

As for the rest, here's the Lost Preds in order of most wanted by me:

Stalker/Skull - This guy is perhaps the definitive Predator in that if you asked a non-fan what they pictured when thinking about the Predator, they'd probably think of him. He has the original mask and color scheme, plus the expanded weaponry of the later installments. In short, this guy is numero uno on my list, and will be especially cool as the "next step" of the evolution of the Classic Predator, from the unmasked Classic to the awesomely painted Series 3 masked and beyond...

Borg/Lost - Without a doubt, this guy has perhaps the coolest, most unique armor and color scheme of any Predator. In a future Predator film, they should definitely base the main Predator design on this guy. I can't wait to see him in three dimensions...

Ram/Warrior - I love the blue color scheme, and his helmet is really cool, too.

Snake/Shadow - In addition to his really cool hide-armor, he just has this feel about him that makes him stick out. His gear is simple yet effective, and his color pattern is pretty interesting.

Gort/Guardian - I must confess that I'm not crazy about the character like some people, but there's no denying that Gort is an incredibly cool and interesting design, and Gort is such a significant part of Predator fan-lore that you'd be crazy not to get him! I do wish they'd show us a full picture of the prototype already...

Brother Boar/Scout - I would agree with someone else's post that he seems like the most plain of the Predators, but his subdued yet complex markings and colors make a nice contrast with the rest of the clan. Plus, his mask is really cool, and I prefer it over his brother's, and the necklace he wears with the shape of his mask engraved on it is really interesting too. Also, Boar just wouldn't be complete without him...

Got my City Hunter a few days back. So far I am very pleased with him. The paint could be better but I'll live. I kind of wish he was'nt so tall compared to the others but i've got him posed crouching so all is good there. And my main complaint is with the new ball-hinged hips. I love them but they just look awful since they arent covered. But all in all really awesome Predator he's always been my favorite. Havent picked up Shamen or Boar yet. Shamen is next on the list and then Boar. Hoping to find that 2-pack in the near future too.

For anyone who has a City Hunter, how exactly is the netgun attached to the leg? Is it glued on, and thus could it be removed with a little prying/boiling?

Also, is the backpack molded or glued onto the armor?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure the back pack is solid to the armor, I haven't looked for seems though. The net gun is glued on though. But expect it has a peg that fits into a socket in the leg armor.

The netgun is glued in and can be removed.

The backpack is part of the armor, it can't be removed.

I dont think so... usually the battle damages versions use the same body, just a different head and blood spots (of course, with City Hunter they'll have to cut his arm off)  ;D

Hey everyone, I finally found this series and I am very happy with them! The City Hunter paint really made me cringe but by doing something so simple (that all of you can do) I think I have made him exponentially better looking. Behold:

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi191.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fz312%2FJaredK511_photos%2Fpreddesk6.jpg&hash=a74e8ce3276ee5897792a1c39e2bd564ec76077d)

The problem with City Hunter is the amount of white on his nose/under eyes. So what I did was take a brown sharpie marker and carefully colored those parts in. That right there made him look so much better. Then I looked at some reference pics and noticed his head has a black border inside his inner crown. So I took a skinny black sharpie to add the new effect. Doing that made his entire head come together and create a very nice contrast with all that white. Now the City Hunter is easily my favorite Predator from Series 4. He just looks so damn good now with P1!

And here are my other Losties:

"nothing definite but looking Stealth/Cloaked we haven't done and maybe an homage to an old Kenner figure as well"


:o

An homage to an old Kenner figure??

Since we all know that NECA's exclusives are just a recicled body repainted and some accessories, which "old Kenner figure" could be?  ???

Hey everyone, I finally found this series and I am very happy with them! The City Hunter paint really made me cringe but by doing something so simple (that all of you can do) I think I have made him exponentially better looking. Behold:

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi191.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fz312%2FJaredK511_photos%2Fpreddesk6.jpg&hash=a74e8ce3276ee5897792a1c39e2bd564ec76077d)

The problem with City Hunter is the amount of white on his nose/under eyes. So what I did was take a brown sharpie marker and carefully colored those parts in. That right there made him look so much better. Then I looked at some reference pics and noticed his head has a black border inside his inner crown. So I took a skinny black sharpie to add the new effect. Doing that made his entire head come together and create a very nice contrast with all that white. Now the City Hunter is easily my favorite Predator from Series 4. He just looks so damn good now with P1!

And here are my other Losties:

nice, ill be sure to do that by the time I open my city hunter, and idk if you can but can you please do a close up of some sort on the predator?

A close up of City Hunter? I think if you click on the images, it'll get larger.

Yeah, I think he was supposed to come with the same disk-holding right hand that Boar has, but for some reason they gave him the more open and splayed out right hand that Elder has, so the fingers don't go into the disk very well.

Doesn't the finger-grip on the disk match up with the corresponding outline on the holster?

Darn, City Hunter can't hold the disk??!! Maybe because they sculpted the hand first, for the Elder and then for the City Hunter prototype, before they realized it wasn't going to work and sculpted a new one for Boar and the rest...but why not just give one of the City Hunters the correct hand, then? Why does NECA do this to us?  :(
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: Njm1983 on Dec 17, 2011, 04:42:36 PM
Its not that big a deal, just boil some water, pour it into a coffee cup then stick the hand in the water for about 15 seconds. It'll be super pliable and you'll have no problem getting the disc on.  Then stick it in ice water to solidify it.

Yes, but it doesn't actually clip into the holster or really stay in place like the McFarlane one did. :(

I've been wondering if NECA is going to actually make a figure for the one called Lost Predator.  He is the one in P2 which has the recycled bio helmet from P1.  Since we now have a masked P1 already.  I hope that maybe they bother to give us a whole new body for him and slightly change the marks on his helmet.

Yes, and now his name is "Stalker" (since Borg was officially named "Lost Hunter" by HotToys)

Stalker is the last one on this pic, with the P1 helmet and with a new body like the others   ;)

Just click on the pic to see him bigger

Me too...at least Snake's pattern is slightly less complex, and now I'm glad they saved Borg for last because it might make the difference as far as getting his paint-job right.

I doubt it'll be a whole new body - it'll most likely be the P2 body but retooled in some way, similar to the rest of the Lost Predators.

thanks for that!  I guess that pic is from the back of the 2pack?  I havent found one yet.  When I got my Boar figure, the mask has a slight imperfection by the eye hole.  I may take it back and swap it for a better one.  And, after seeing this pic I wish they had kept him more of a yellowish hue.  I love how they even made the lenses on the helmet look like it has a screen on it.  I have to brag a second and say that today at the local comic shop i picked up an AvP elder, P1, and P2 from Mcfarlane for only 7$ each used.  Nice addition to the collection.  Hadnt ever seen one in person before.  After seeing them now, It really makes me appreciate the quality of NECA on these figures.  I mean the faces alone are just amazing compared to what has been out.

My advice would be to call your local TRU's frequently and see if they get them instock. That's how i found out they had them in. I live in California, and the 3 TRU's by me have gotten them in already(and some have sold out already), so depending on where you are, the TRU's may get them in now, or later on. Unfortunately there is no way to know aside from either calling them, or going in yourself. Good Luck! :)

Never happened to me. Also you might ask seller to mark package as gift, then you`re 100% sure no additional payment is charged. But as I said earlier, it never happened to me and I ordered allot of figures from Hong Kong (not only Predator and Alien).

Don`t thin so. Eye sockets of my P1 pred from two pack were poorly painted but as far as I`m informed it was global issue. Some of them had very tight joints and some even broke after attempts to make them move properly, but still it`s global issue. Just check the amount of possitive feedback, if the guy is ok. then should be no problem there.

Theres some Predator 2 figures for sale on eBay U.K for a fair price.

Anyone know if they are going to release a masked City Hunter solo?  I don't really want the half camo Berserker and if the next series will have it masked alone I guess I can wait until then.

Well as luck would have it I went by the nearest TRU today and despite it being Xmas eve they had three of the double packs! I got two of them, one to open and one to stash with the rest of my collection. The masked p-face looks awesome!

Hot water for a couple of minutes first then bend- there is a balance between firmness and care you have to strike to not break these guys- i wouldn't be too worried if I were you, haven't seen many reports of breakage on this new wave, they seem to be much stronger- mine were stiff as well, but i bent them without water- but the water is extra insurance that they won't snap

water first,

then bend

Careful with bending them if they are stiff without using water. I tried to bend the arm of my P2 Elder Predator because it wouldn't move and it snapped right off. I didn't know to boil them first.
Title: Re: NECA Predator Figure Series
Post by: thespiderman209 on Dec 27, 2011, 03:04:04 AM
I already got the Boar leg to move. I just had to add pressure on it, and I didnt use water or anything. So these new NECA predators are pretty durable. Plus they make some pretty badass poses.

Even though I wasnt planning on getting it, I saw the 2 pack at TRU earlier today, and had to buy it.  As with the first 2 pack, I have no plans on opening it.  I was surprised to see on the back that it comes with the background backdrop for the camo berserker.  I guess I overlooked that detail somewhere here or it hasnt been posted.  Guess I wont know how that looks as I want to keep them nice and pretty in the package.  When I first got my series 1, I opened them and immediately regreted it, every since them I've been keeping them in package to keep them perfect.  Cant wait for the next wave!!!

I agree they do look impressive in hand.  I guess my main reason for now for keeping them in package is lack of a proper area to display them.  I dont own a glass case yet, and just placing them on an end table or computer desk doesnt seem right.  Im thinking about a long fish aquarium to build a backdrop for the preds when the time is right.  Someday maybe I'll have a mancave with pred posters and walls of biohelmets and cases full of Predators!  one can dream...

Its cool if you keep them in the package. I can see why some people would keep them in the package because someday they can sell it for money or just keep them to hang on the wall. I only have one packaged predator being unmasked city hunter. When I look at it on the wall it makes me wanna go back threw the collection to keep some in the package. Mainly that SDCC Gort Predator. Its kinda a funny story how I got that second city hunter btw.  I was at work and a guy needed help finding a black eyed peas cd. I helped him find their best cd. Later that guy came back and found me and just straight up gave me 20 dollars for the service, he insisted I keep the money. So I just spent it on another city hunter to keep in the package. As for the one out of the box I may redo that forehead. Anybody got any ideas on the best paint brand to use?

I still have pretty much all of my cases saved, so when ever I for some reason feel like it, I could just put them back in there and look at them.

It's too bad I never thought about keeping the cases for my AVP-R figures, but let me tell ya, after I purchased McFarlane's Scar and Celtic unopened , I immediately inhaled all the trapped 2004 air.

That's smelling the past baby!  Brought me 7 years back!

And don't get me started on the 1995 SEGA Saturn controller I recently ordered UNOPENED.

OH. MY. GOD.  It was a blessing just breathing in that baby. 16 years.

I know I'm weird.

I'm trying to decide if I should open my SDCC Gort mask classic Pred.  It looks like Gort on the back of the TRU two pack is coming in the lost predators line, but my 35 year old eyes aren't entirely sure.  Is that Gort coming later as a proper figure, not just a classic with a different mask?

Yes, the Gort Predator from Predator 2 is coming out in the next series. Every single Predator seen on the ship in P2 is being made. The classic Gort Predator (SDCC version) is just a special figure made for the hardcore fans who know that the Gort mask was the original mask to be used in the film but later scrapped for the one we all know and love in the original movie.

I received Shaman for Christmas and he is amazing! The sculpt and paint are really well done, and as for the joints, everything seems to move so smoothly! I should be receiving the 2-Pack soon as well, and while I'd like to get Boar and the Gort- mask Classic I am most definitely pleased and grateful for what I have/will have!  8)

I do wish that for the unmasked City Hunter, NECA had gone ahead and put some battle-damaged paint on the chest...the wounded City Hunter is an iconic image from the movie, and fans would have had even more reason to buy the figure. It doesn't look like we're gonna be getting a lot of variants just yet, and I for one would like to get a wounded variant with the open mouth and both arms intact as well as the missing/removable arm versions. But enough regrets - 'tis the season for Predator fans to be jolly, for sure!  ;D

Any word on Predator figures after series 6 wraps up, such as the AVP Preds or a redone Wolf? Last year, we had the Predator 2 announcement right about now, and I'd like to know if it's worth it to pick up the old masked Wolf in the near future...

I plan to make a battle damaged City Hunter soon. It seems easy enough. Just get some florescent green paint to dab on the chest and then cut the gauntlet in half to cover with more green paint. This guy did an incredible job:

It would be really cool if NECA redo the Wolf, but they only redo their figures when a new movie come out (like Harry Potter, Twilight or Pirates of the Caribbean) or a new game (Marcus Phoenix from Gears of War has several versions, each one with more articulation than other)... unfortunately, no Predator new movie will come out to justify a new Wolf figure  :P

same! if enough people want it theyll do it. hope they carry on into games as well, scarface and dark would rule! also theyd be viable to do because scarface uses the AvP body so they can reuse that and Dark and the AvP2010 elites all use wolf so they could reuse that too!

even as a gears of war collector i think its stupid how many Marcus Fenix figures there are! money better spent on new figures

Actually there was tape around the edges. My best bet is that someone didn't want to pay 37 dollars for the same figure he/she already had only with a mask and just took the head and accessories so they could swap it out anytime they pleased. Or took the head and bought a city hunter, replaced it with the masked version, and is now currently selling it on Ebay for much profit indeed.

The other day I went to the store and got both the 2-Pack and Boar, whom my relative offered to pay for since I didn't have enough cash!  :) They are awesome. Boar is cool, haven't taken the time to truly appreciate the camo-Berserker...but the City Hunter is amazing. Get it. Period.

Slightly disappointed that Stalker's been moved to Series 6, as that means I'll have to wait 'til then to get the Preds I'm most looking forward to, but that means that my Classic Predator gets to keep in his P1 armor a little longer before getting an "upgrade"! Bring on Snake and Series 5

Dont get too hyped up on Snake, Peakius. Neca dosen't always seem to get the paint on Predator faces right. With the exception of Unmasked Berserker and Unmasked Classic, and I suppose the Elder... Screw it, HYPE! :D

That's a good question, I'm trying to remember where mine was, I think it was inside the packaging background piece- the one that makes up the backing to the whole package- so hopefully you didn't dispose of it, since I think it's tucked back in there- funny how it slipped my mind already- i guess i was just so excited to open it I didn't take note

Alrighty, I finally got Masked City Hunter and Cloaked Berserker 2-pack.  Really wanted a solo release of Masked City Hunter, but can't wait any longer, and I'm not willing to pay $50 for one on ebay.  Cloaked Mr. Black is cool though, but his blade feels cheaper than usual.

Berserker is actually pretty cool when you set him up infront of the camo set piece.

I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7S.  I plan to upgrade to the big time with a Nikon D-800 this summer.  I set up all of the lighting myself, but the smoke effects, rain, and sparks come from using Sony Vegas Pro.  The first pic of the Elder with the fire behind him used a real fire pit.  Oh, and the masked Pred on the rooftop was created using three images in Photoshop.

Bring on the Predator in 18" or the Elder NECA,  would be a dream!! :)
The original looks so fantastic overall and is so accurate, i need more. ;D

I LOVE MINE  :-* ;D

Only the good old Preds deserves 18", no falconers or other wannabes please, lol

T.R.A.S.H in my eyes, quickly-forgotten films and creatures.  :P

The 7" City Hunter looks good. The scuplt (must important thing) is SPOT ON  but the paint could be a little better. The Predators are too detailed for the scale. Not NECAS fault.  ;)

As i said, really great he can look only in 18", would be much closer to this one;

Love those pics. Looks like when Predator 2 is about to attack keys squad in the slaughter house. I really do love these figures because you can do more with them. I want to make a city backdrop for mine

I prefer natural Pictures to be honest. Im not a fan of photoshop, never used such tools.
I experimented a bit with yellow light one time, results are not bad but blue looks way better for Predators   ;D

you can get blue without photoshop, thats why i said spotlights with blue filters. the yellow/orange lighting works if you want a nice predator ship interior look

Those pictures are excellent, what camera/lens are you using? Did you use Photoshop as well or did you set up all the lighting yourself?

I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7S.  I plan to upgrade to the big time with a Nikon D-800 this summer.  I set up all of the lighting myself, but the smoke effects, rain, and sparks come from using Sony Vegas Pro.  The first pic of the Elder with the fire behind him used a real fire pit.  Oh, and the masked Pred on the rooftop was created using three images in Photoshop.

From twitter:

Question: What sort of Predators toys are you doing?

Answer: finishing up the Lost clan. There is more after that but we may save those details for SDCC.

Question: What is the likelyhood of us getting a figure of the Scarface Predator from Concrete Jungle? I'd love you forever if we got that.

Answer: haven't looked into it as we've got plans in place into 2013 already that come from the films.

From NECA: character & figure have little appeal or interest. If we could do any human it would be Dutch & Dutch only.

Q: Btw are we ever gonna get a Dutch figure? My Predators need a worthy opponent.

A: we don't have the likeness rights for the Dutch character, we all wish we did

Q: Could Dutch be coming this year?


A: definitely not

Q: so who has to say yes for u to produce Dutch?? I know u want it too right??

A: Arnold & it costs additional money on top of existing license.

It was some other guy. I read all the tweets from NECA  ;D

Here is other questions about predators figures:


Q: Any updates on Predators?

A: prepping Series 5 packaging and figures for Spring release and maybe cooking up some exclusives for 2012 as well

Q: Any hints on what exclusives might be made for 2012? Thanks!

A: nothing definite but looking Stealth/Cloaked we haven't done and maybe an homage to an old Kenner figure as well

Q: heard youre going to do a "homage to a kenner pred" would that be the renegade? Complete with staff and gun?

A: said we might do a Kenner homage, always have backup plans for exclusives and variants in case they're needed

Q: Kenner Tribute figures?! I'm listening intently

A: a possible tribute/homage to an old Kenner item, just one figure and this is a ways off if it happens

Q: Can fans expect to see Classic Predators redone with new articulation?


A: not likely, it will take most of 2012 to release all of the P2 Lost Preds

Q: Are you guys planning on producing any more trophies like the ones in the 2packs?

A: definitely, the when & where as far as release is still being determined

Q: Can we expect a single carded masked City Hunter with spear?

A: not planned but possible for beyond Series 6 as an exclusive, Series 7, or a best of type assortment. Not currently planned tho




And some questions about Aliens figures:


Q: Depending on what is in the film, is there any possibility of figures from "Prometheus"? Or have you decided not to pursue it?

A: no final decision has been made, we need to have a much better understanding of what could be "figure worthy"

Q: Are there any plans to make figures based on the upcoming "Aliens: Colonial Marines" game?

A: no such plans

Q: With regards to Aliens, are you focusing on Cameron's film (marines,Queen) or other films?

A: TBD. Can't discuss further right now. Hopefully more info come Toy Fair



8)  Yep! New Aliens at Toy Fair!!  8)

they seriously need to make the remaining 7" Aliens, dog, res and newborn. and hopefully queens. oh, and avp warrior and Grid. i'm annoyed to see my neca Aliens stuck at Aliens while my preds boosts on to completion, especially if they are indeed making the AvP preds, which i really hope for because its all that stands between a almost complete set and a Fully complete set

Post by: darylox on Jan 28, 2012, 12:21:57 PM
Neca and 7" is dangerous for the Paint. They should release much more in the 18 SCALE:

The first 18" Pred selled out so fast,  Gort i heart too.
If they didnt make P2 in 18", big marketing error. :-\

Of course they're gonna make the AvP ones. Im hoping for non screen accurate tho. Make them skinny like they should have been in the first place. I mean, what else is there to do after this? P2s pretty much done.

Im sure a battle damaged with his hand cut off is already in the works and they said they might do a throwback to an old Kenner figure. my guess is broken Tusk or the one with the alien armor on its chest (which is what broken Tuck wore in the original comics anyways.)

So the only ones Neca hasn't done is AvP. And with the recent announcement of Hot Toys remaking the entire line from all the incarnations of the movies, they have some competition.
