Q
I'm honestly really excited for Laser Shot

I think his sculpt looks fantastic but the sad reality is that the sculpt will be severely limited in the articulation department. I also don't really like the gimmicky projectile action...it's great homage to Kenner but way too cheesy for my tastes. I think the COOLEST part is the head sculpt. Because it's like a cyborg predator.

If he has the newer body they've been using he's still have more articulation than the older Predators  :laugh:
Depending on how his mask fits with the armor is another thing, but I'm probably going to end up with at least two of him. He'll look right at home with the "future hunters" I've been slowly putting together.

Edit Golden Angel deluxe is also the next Predator to come out I just remembered. I think he's supposed to be out before spring?

That sounds right? I did forget about him (whoops).

 It's cool Elder from Predator 2 is getting a figure for his  younger self in comic book appearance (Golden Angel).

Yeah and the arcade predators are already out as well. In the span of a maybe two months we had three different sets, I like that.

Lasershot:



He's as kenner as is possible. :laugh: Still, I'm gonna have to get this guy.

My secret wish is that NECA's Lasershot remake has working electronics like the original did.

That would be amazing lol. I mean... I'm not sure about sound but lights certainly isn't out of the question. Their Issac Clarke figures had leds in the head. I think there's a Gypsy Danger figure with lights in the chest as well. There's always a possibility.

Yeah, they've done several light-up figures in the past. It's partly my secret wish for Lasershot because I know NECA could do it.

Thanks.  ;D I pre-ordered it from a UK retailer when they announced them. I guess their guys in the States just got them shipped across recently.

I came so very close to snagging this one, but I just couldn't. Maybe if he gets clearanced I might pick him up. It's neat, but it doesn't fit anywhere and I'm not too hot on the film despite liking this Predator.
