The Predator NECA Figures On Display At Predator Launch Party

Recommended Posts

NECA posted some images via Twitter last night of their new figures based on The Predator movie. The figures were on display at a special Predator launch event for the movie. In these images we get our first look at their large Assassin Predator painted as well as what appears to be a variant for Ultimate Fugitive Predator. This version looks to be done in the infrared type colors, which is how Predators see things. NECA hasn't announced any details for it so we aren't sure what the Predator Reebok shoe has to do with the figure if anything. From one of the images it looks like the figure will be released at Target, f.y.e and one other place we can't make out on the tag. Stay-tuned for more details on this as I am sure will be coming later today.

Predator must be NECA's bread & butter. Every other NECA announcement is a new Predator.

The Predator and Alien lines are the flagship of NECA. The sculpts and designs allow them to make endless variants with the same mold with only minor tweaks. Extremely cost effective for NECA.

Unfortunately for my tastes, NECAs Flagships are mostly horror themed so my collection is very thin on NECA figures.

I am very happy tho with my SDCC Turtle sets.

Yea, I’m in the same boat. I’ll pickup the classic Predator and Alien design from NECA for my collection, but that’s it. I’m more interested in their Godzilla line, which doesn’t receive nearly as much attention as their horror lines.

That said, NECA’s relationship with Toho has improved, so I’m hoping to see more production in the future. Their upcoming Godzilla ‘62 looks amazing and they snagged the rights to Godzilla: KotM (2019). Looking good for the G-fans.

How do the NECA Godzilla compare to the Tamshii releases ?

IMO - the NECA’s have a solid sculpt and take some artistic license with the designs that come out nicely. That said, Tamshi sculpts, details, and articulation are far superior.

NECA remains a relevant option due to being far more affordable, $20-30. Tamshi is all over the place price wise, with most ranging between $70-$150. That doesn’t factor in shipping costs as few making to stores state side. Those that do are marked up in price. If I’m gonna pay that much, a might as well go with the larger X-plus figurines.

For a Godzilla collector on a budget, NECA fulfills the need.

I figured as much. Bandai Tamashii stuff is hard to beat most of the time. That's why I spend the money on the best.
