the AVP game aliens look nice, the Chrysalis looks small. But the preds are 100% disappointment.

They just repainted a Jungle and a City hunter. And the City Hunter doesnt look like anything in the game. The Pred hunter only has the City Hunter armor on the character select screen but the other Pred doesnt look like he looks in the character select screen. He looks like the gameplay art, this is a mess. It looks like for the Preds they just went with a new paint job and that's it. Forget matching anything. Either match both to the gameplay, or character select, or both to the cutscenes.

the AVP arcade game was great, and these figures look pretty faithful to the imaginative designs in that game. the side views are obviously meant to evoke the look of the sprites and they really do.

could this have something to do with a rerelease of the game? one could hope.

Were all thinking about razor claws in that pose. A facehugger finally got freddy krueger.

It looks like they used the character selection art instead of the in-game sprites. That explains p2 hunter. But i just can't say no to mad predator. xD Blue predator + Blue alien fighting in a Blue or cold world.

I'm still bitter about not seeing Drake...but I'm sold on those Xeno's. They don't look as cartoony as their predator counter parts.
I hope this means NECA will venture into other games like AVP2010 and ACM. All the player models from those games would make awesome figures.

Would be amazing to see a rerelease of the game online or on current consoles

And they could be completely faithful by giving the hunter the right head. I would very interested in hearing the explanation for why he got a mask that is never seen in the game. Not even in he arcade cabinet art.

After a bit of research the character select screen and in the cutscenes he has the City Hunter armor, it's just that is some cutscenes they just didnt go into detail and it looks a bit different because of that, but the mask does change. He has the prototype/gort mask for cutscenes and in the character select screen, in game, and cabinet art, he has the standard jungle hunter mask.

Those look fantastic, especially the Razor Claws and Chrysalis Aliens! And I really like the shade of blue they went with for the Mad Predator, and just the other figures in general. There's a smoothness and softness to them that I really like.

Think I'm going to have to try and pick up Razor Claws and Chrysalis at some point at the very least. And I really like that Chrysalis has an extendable head too. Dammit NECA, stop putting out so many figures I want but can't afford!

Wonder if we might see a Royal Guard from the game at all at some point, or if they held off on that one in lieu of doing an "official" Praetorian at some point.



And yup, it'd be great if we could get that game on consoles. It's a classic. I don't think it's ever been released officially outside of the arcades, but man would I pay good money for a proper release.

We kind of did get an official Praetorian, with the newly released Defiance Alien based on the comic series.
