NECA seems to be in a holding pattern at the moment. The last few updates I've seen Randy post on Twitter seemed to indicate they were waiting until they could reveal their figures from The Predator before moving forward with the rest of the line.

Why they don't just go with some of the multiple other figures we've seen already I don't know, but it could be that we don't see much movement until around September.

Looks like something that Paul Andersons Elder Predator would sit on.

I made a point of picking up the Kenner Clan Leader when I had the chance last year in part because of them announcing that throne, so I'm definitely going to grab that too when it becomes available outside of their eBay store.

Granted I've got nowhere to put either of them, but that's never stopped me before. :laugh:

Q
i am hungry from some alien and predator releases
its been a long time since we've gotten a new neca alien or predator figure...about 8 months
come on please!

i took pictures of my bone throne today

its a great, detailed, heavy, beautiful piece
there is a story about a predator clan leader that had a crappy chair
he sat it in...broke it...all of his clan laughed
he made them build him a new chair...a great chair
another clan found out and they had to do the same thing!
repeat as needed

Nice pics! Three bone thrones? Good on you, fitting for the three highest ranking predators from Neca thus far. Nice little story you made there, the best part of collecting for me is the potential posing of these figures.

Popped into my local Forbidden Planet at the weekend and they've finally got Series 16 restocks in so I picked up Stalker.



No sign of 17, though. I saw it once in London last year and never since. Shame because I'd really like the AvP 2010 figure.

That's an insane collection dHunter333. I think I like the garden chair more than the throne though.

Nice! I kind of wish I'd picked up Stalker when I went into Forbidden Planet last year. It's always better to get figures in person rather than online if possible. Still, I managed to nab the Clan Leader instead, so I don't regret my decision.

I remember seeing a couple of Serpents in there too, but that was right when I was reading about all those problems with the heads and NECA sending out a bunch of replacements, so I held off. It's certainly one I'd like to pick up at some point too though.

That's one of the things I don't like about figures like these in general. It feels like half the time if you don't grab them immediately you lose out, and the only way you can get them (outside of getting really lucky) if by paying ridiculously prices on the secondary market (hi there, Gorilla Alien!). :(

I first thought the figure had sideburns but it's actually paint.

Looks great! They actually teased this figure about a year ago.

Wow, this is unexpected. Definitely gonna be getting this. It’s just to funny not too. Out of all the characters in PREDATOR. Shane’s Hawkins was honestly the last person I was expecting.

Makes sense though, considering he’s directing THE PREDATOR. Kinda of a no brainer in that context.

Perfect companion to the James Cameron CM.
