I am really interested in the Ripley 8 and Drake who doesn't even look that cartoonish.
The Newborn looks just like the Hasbro one, although bigger.

Huh... The Neca Fugitive Predator figurine actually looks better than the Hot Toys' one!

Apart from the chrome and some paint detailing, it hardly looks superior to the NECA figure which is surprising.

It's presumably one of those things that looks much better in person.

I have to say the prototype Upgrade looks amazing though.
Of course prototypes always look better than the final product, so i'd say it's pretty non indicative.

Hot toys will have better finish for sure, but it is amazing how well Neca has captured the details.

Will probably end up buying both... fml.

I love the helmet of the hot toys fugitive predator but other than that that it seems like a very boxy looking figure. I’m a little disappointed to be honest but I’ll hold my final judgement untiI I see more photos. Also, I think it’s odd Hot toys didn’t make an upgrade predator figure. I feel like they could really knock it out of the park with it if it’s done right.

Something looks off about the big chap statue, proportion wise maybe.

However the Covenant xeno looks great.
