At Toy Fair earlier this year they revealed the prototypes, which got us all excited. Now they have given us a closer look at these hotly anticipated figures. I know that many fans (myself included) don’t like the Alien vs. Predator films, along with the bulky look to the Predators.
Now, NECA have gotten round to producing the Predators from AVP for their Predator Series 14. They have made a change to the design so that they are slimmer and are in scale with the other NECA Predators. I really like change. The level of detail is incredible on these figures, much like their other Predators.
They look far more armored than the other Predators that NECA have released to date. As you can see, Celtic and Scar wear similar armor than what’s seen in the film and Chopper does not have armour on his thighs. They look fantastic. NECA also state that they will be more articulated than the Predators that they have released in the past (they will now have 30 points). These also have an ab-crunch.
Chopper, Celtic and Scar will come with all their own different accessories. Though they will share some accessories; wrist blades, shoulder cannons and a knife. We’ll know closer to their release date what else they’ll come with. I do know that they have flip covers for their wrist computers, a feature fans have been longing for the Predator line; It’s awesome. They each stand about 8.5-inches tall and come packaged in blister card packaging.
The film disappointed me, though I know these figures will really impress. If you’re a fan of NECA’s Predator line and the look of these Predators, this whole wave is highly recommended. They will be released in the September of this year and are currently available for pre-order here.
