I just can't stand that Crabator look but I'll be curious what you do with them. :)

I do think they would have looked better with closed mouths, but both this guy, and the next one coming out both have unique enough faces and crowns that I can over look it.


What do you think of them?

I actually like them a lot more than I thought I would, even more so than the original Fugitive I had and the new Assassin. I really wasn't sure about how id feel based on the pictures (the molle and multicam was really throwing me off) but it's pretty impressive in hand. The biggest drawback for me is the fact his gauntlet doesn't come with blades, or even holes to add blades.

@Jokerswarpig can’t wait to get my hands on the emissary! Picked up the Upgrade the other day. Really cool figure!

Final in-packaging photos have been revealed for the Lab Escape Fugitive Predator Ultimate Figure from The Predator (2018). Shortly after the new images were revealed, NECA announced that the figure is available now via the NECA eBay Store and the NECA Amazon Store. The figure has an unmasked head sculpt, a light up LED masked head sculpt, a mask accessory, multiple interchangeable hands, a shuriken, and a rifle. The figure is priced at $29.99 plus shipping. The figure should hit stores by the end of the month.

The Fugitive Predator without a broken jaw. Much improved!

I ordered two of those from Amazon, should be here Monday  8)
I was originally going to get just one, but the paint apps look so much better on this version than they do the original that I had to get one to put all the armor on.

Of course I order my Jungle Hunter today and the Lab Escape fugitive pops up. It's not like I can't get it, but I would've preferred to have used that as a base but of course the Jungle Hunters already shipped (and with the speed they get here I don't doubt Neca teleports them like in the movie).

Hopefully this has better quality control than the last Fugitive and my Ahab. The last release I got two right arms and a broken shoulder cannon.

So in the midst of working on my first custom, my Lab Escape Fugitive arrived!

Outright he's re-sculpted compared to the original Fugitive and thankfully quality control did it's thing and he only came in fine with some minor paint scuffs.

He seems to share the same upper body as the Emissary and frankly if between this and what they used on Jungle Hunter, I'd like to see them reuse it. The LED mask is also a nice touch and I hope we see more of that as well as it's a nice bit of functionality. It's shinier plastic so he also stands out among the crowd considering he looks kind of wet. It's small touches like this that make it worth it. And while I was thinking about it, I did compare it to a Jungle Hunter head, it's a different head. Either it's re-sculpted or they made a new head but in either case it works well enough. It doesn't seem like I can reuse the other Fugitive's arms for the Lab Escape though which would be nice (though considering it's re-sculpted, I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't fit). The rifle though (and if I recall correctly was acquired after he got his armor back) doesn't really fit in his hands without bending the plastic. Though it is kind of awkward for a Predator to be holding a human rifle to begin with, he does use it in the movie so it's a detraction especially seeing as the individual mask he comes with is his only other accessory.

Pros;
- Better sculpt
- Paint application is better (I only had minor scuffs)
- Stands on its own
- LED helmet is a nice touch

Cons;
- Not exactly movie accurate; he got the rifle and shurikens later and he shouldn't have his original mask. (though this is balanced out for good props)
- The rifle doesn't really fit into the hand
- The mask accessory is canonically the wrong one (though it gains points for being a good battle damaged mask even if this is the wrong mask he had in the sequence and isn't wearable)

A-
A few canonical hiccups but the renditions are good enough that it adds to the value of the figure even if the rifle itself doesn't fit.

The paint apps on this one are significantly better than the original ultimate release. That's the main reason I bought this one actually.

I've seen your videos, you've got one impressive collection. Envy of most army builders.
