NECA City Hunter (2012 Com-Con Exclusive)
Release Date: July 2012
RRP: US $25
The NECA City Hunter is an exclusive figure for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. The City Hunter is of course the nickname of the main Predator in Predator 2. NECA first released City Hunter in 2011 as part of Predator Series 4 but here he is completely cloaked. Accessories include a cloaked smart disc and a trophy.
Our series on SDCC exclusives continues this week with the Cloaked City Hunter Predator! As seen in 1990’s Predator 2, the City Hunter (aka the Ghost Predator) is a leaner, meaner kind of killer, perfectly suited to the drug-filled streets of fictional 1997 Los Angeles, in which Colombian and Jamaican cartels are at war with the police. Set to a 7″ scale, our Cloaked City Hunter is an answer to the first-ever City Hunter figure, which was included in Predators Series 4 late last year.
Like it’s much-less-invisible brethren, the Cloaked City Hunter is immaculately detailed and accurate to the look and feel of Predator 2. It features over 25 points of articulation, including ball joints in the hips and double-knee joints — because, let’s face it, when you’re chasing down and beheading deadly drug lords in a bizarre future city while Danny Glover tries to track you down and kill you, you want to be as flexible as possible. UNLIKE the regular City Hunter, though, this Cloaked version is totally exclusive to SDCC and has the sticker to prove it. If you can’t make it to San Diego this year, though, don’t worry, we’ll have some news on special opportunities forthcoming after the Con.
