I was hoping my local Walmart would get him but probably missed him at some point. I found an alpha but didn't get it, then I went back later that day and it was gone already.

Got the Stalker Predator, Guardian is next, followed by damaged City Hunter.
As expected, he is great!

Here he is in the package.


Up close with the mask on and off.

Here is my YouTube review on him.

Thanks for the link Darkness! Was just wondering the other day if they’d ever get around to releasing that color version or not...

Thanks for heads up! Figure looks cool, but it's still armored sculpt without even slightest change. That's not how it looked in the movie!

I'm still surreal to me that the Upgrade Predator really happened...

I don't get why they wouldn't go for a more accurate design. Like maybe they figured it wouldn't be worth it to re-sculpt the body but then why do the unarmored version if you're not going to bother? And if it did do well to warrant the re-color then why not go for the re-sculpt? It's just kind of reeking of laziness to me especially if the Assassin is already pricey to begin with. It's asking price is already a bit much and anybody going for it would naturally be willing to pay more for the film accuracy.

Perhaps just restock the Assassin and release the dog instead. Because if the focus is on Predator 2 and The Predator is just a side thing then do the dog. Sure the hounds didn't do well last time but if you're going to do anything at all focus on the hounds because they don't have to be as articulate, lend themselves to some repaints, and can army build since Assassin had a few of them.

Yeah, I'd get the hounds. I did buy two hellhounds from Predators and I'm super happy with them.

As The Figure or as The Creature in The Predator ?

These NECA images make me want to re-watch the movie

Shouldn't it have a gold tusk?

Yep. Doesn't look like it's on the armored Assassin either. It is present on the other merchandise though (barring Funko) so seemingly the producers of the merch are aware he has a cap. Not sure if it's supposed to be gold or not. It looks silver in some shots but could be gold. Though merch I've seen with it has it silver.

At least it's an easy "fix" with some hobby paint.
