I like the way the PREDATOR looks. Anyone saying that it sucks, is obviously oblivious to the fact that not all PREDATOR's look the same. Also, this is more than likely a "conceptual" figure, and will be tweaked for consumer purchase. Yeah, McFarlane did a great job with the first couple waves of figures, but he's moved on to the almighty HALO thing. Plus, the ones made by his company really werent that great for poseability, and sturdiness. I dont know how many times pieces, and parts fell off my figures while trying to pose them. All in all though, the designs were great. I am going to give NECA a chance to step it up. I have never owned a NECA figure yet, so I'm hoping to get quite a few figures each (that's how I roll), so I can dsplay a couple, and keep the others in there bubbles and such. What I've seen of their previous figures, like G.o.W., and the horror figures, I think they will probably put some good quality design, and playability in these new AvP-R figures...I hope.
