We knew about the trio of AvP Arcade Predators, and Dutch was confirmed via prototype images, but this is the first I've heard about Linn and that's pretty awesome.

I'm not interested in this wave but I'm glad they are doing these for those who like these figures.

One thing I still don't understand is why Neca can produce Machiko, Dutch and AvP arcade human figures but no Harrigan?  I know Machiko is a big deal for most me included but I bet Harrigan would sell better than other human figures?

Danny Glover may not have agreed to offer up his likeness for a figure.

Also, the AvP Arcade figures are more visually appealing on the pegs with their bright colors and sci-fi guns and stuff.

I mean don't get me wrong, I'd buy a Harrigan figure, but I can see why he'd likely warm the pegs if they made one.

Indeed. It seems like there gets to be a lot tangled up in the legalities around NECA being able to use likenesses. Or if NECA even go for them in the place.

Yeah I know they've been trying to get Carl Weathers to sign off on a Dillon figure for a long time now, but he doesn't seem to be interested (his likeness rights were included with the Rocky licence, but I don't think anyone's were with Predator, hence the lack of any human figures other than Dutch, who I seem to remember they contacted Arnold to acquire).

From the comments Randy has made on Twitter every now and then it doesn't seem like they're particularly interested in a Harrigan figure, chances are because they figure he would indeed just warm the pegs.

Oddly enough I was just looking at a pre-order listing for the bone throne when this packaging preview went up on Twitter:

I can’t wait to get that throne!

I wonder why we haven’t seen a Dect. Schaefer figure? That would be cool. What I would love, is Cold War Predators. One can dream.

cannot wait!

That looks a bit...off. Would have liked more bulkiness on the body and Arnolds likeness in the face. But its still a prototype I guess.

That's the way Dutch IV looked in AvP Arcade.

Dutch IV was way bulkier:

They are using a repainted Arnolds body with a new face which creates the "off" feeling.
If they are going with a more realistic look then Arnolds likeness would have made sense.

That looks f**king horrible.  :laugh:

The AVP Dutch customs that some people have made look way better... and those arent "professional" work.
