NECA Predator Series 9 is the ninth wave of NECA figures based on the Predator license released around June 2013. The series follows Series 8 and is based around 1987’s Predator movie. It features Jungle Hunter again but this time partially uncloaked like when he emerges from water. There’s two new versions of Dutch Schaefer, again modelled on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s appearance, – Jungle Encounter and Jungle Disguise. ‘Encounter’ has Dutch shirtless while ‘Disguise’ features him covered in mud like at the end of Predator when he faces off against the Predator.
The 9th Series in the #1 selling Predator collection celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the original 1987 Predator film with the follow-up assortment featuring Arnold Schwarzengger as Dutch Schaefer! Series 8 was an instant sellout and Series 9 delivers 2 brand new versions of Dutch along with an all new scene specific version of the Jungle Hunter. Jungle Encounter Dutch is faithful to his appearance when he first encounters the Predator in the jungle, complete with all new shirtless torso and military vest, features over 20 points of articulation, an M-16, Pistol, and Knife accessories.
Jungle Disguise Dutch is immortalized in his mud disguise and features over 20 points of articulation along with Spears, Bow & Arrow accessories. Last but not least is a new and improved version of the Jungle Hunter Predator from when he de-cloaks while in the water. Water Emergence Predator is partially translucent and has incredible lightning effect details and features the additional ball-jointed hip and double knee articulation, over 25 points of articulation, extendable wrist blades, and removable backpack.
