Great looking armor and a solid looking Predator. Hard to argue with this set. Might be sleeping on the couch for a month or two once these show up in the mailbox and the misses sees the haul.

LOL, yeah I love this Batman. The Superman one is cool but this was my favorite of the 3 sets originally shown off.

The details on that Batman are insane! I did read the comic years ago and do remember Bats bashing in the head of the Predator, what a fantastic comic that was might need to reread it.

Love what NECA has done overall with the two 2 packs so far, I believe that there is one more to go, the Batman vs. Joker Predator set which is the one I'm most excited for! SDCC will be red hot this year!

Well this makes me very happy and very sad at the same time, I live outside the US and wont be able to attend SDCC so I can neither get the set at the con nor through the website, and I really want it, and seeing how these DC/Darkhorse sets had a lot of issues getting released (with rights and all) there is a high chance Neca wont be able to release these figures later down the road as store exclusives which makes them easier to get for us International collectors (having the Neca Turtles at gamestop, Target and now their upcoming international deals is good for us) but I see it hard theyll be able to get the same rights deal to sell these figures somewhere else later. I could do without superman but I really really wanted this batman figure.

Why don't they make this into a movie?

This can be a darker-type Batman movie where the Predator has to land in Gotham for some reason or another.  During the time the Predator is in Gotham, he's taking out criminals, drug dealers, etc. for kills and victories like Predators do and Batman starts noticing a pattern.  Soon it becomes a cat and mouse hunt where Batman is hunting the Predator until both warriors come to blows.  This Batman movie will be more violent with blood.  It won't be one of those goody-goody Batman movies...

While I like the look of this set and there's some very good details on the figure, I still like the Superman set more.

This looks awesome and I’m glad it was this set and the Superman/Alien set that were chosen for SDCC since those are the ones I wanted the most.  

So as of today my tally for which NECA items I’ll be picking up at SDCC are: 

4 items = must buy and likely will buy 2 of each to have one to open (TMNT set, the Terminator set, and the 2 DC/DH sets).

And 

2 maybe’s (Karate Kid and It).

All in all a great showing from NECA that has me hyped for San Diego.

Each year after day 5 of SDCC my friends and I tend to do our own little wrap up discussion on what we thought was the best exclusive, best overall exclusive offerings, best booth display, best panel, best deal on the floor, best find, etc etc.  

I feel like when it comes to best single exclusive NECA’s really been killing it since 2016 scoring if not the #1 spot at least one item in my top 2 or 3 every year.  (And even in 2015 I would have ranked their Apes 3 pack exclusive pretty high and possibly in my personal top 3 had that not been one that also went to TRU).  

Its still early, but thus far I think both this year’s turtle set and the 2 DC vs DH sets are strong contenders for a top spot (which would give NECA a super strong showing for being number one over all).  So I’m excited to see if anyone else can beat this selection.

Very cool set. But I guess that for the first time, I'm preferring the Superman one. 

But I need that other Batman and hopefully they will make a Robin too.

Yawn...in other words evilbay/aftermaket exclusive. Nice sets but, I won't even worry. I hope McF could at least give us some DC figs half as good (one can dream).

I feel you! I'm from outside the US as well. That Batman really looks super neat. I'm sure they'll be people selling a couple of these but they'll certainly be asking triple the price.

I hope Neca gets the rights to re release these even if it's on single packages. Gosh, that Batman...

They really did a good job designing this armored Batsuit. It looks like a version of Batman that would exist in an Alien/Predator universe. 
Pretty hilarious how all that high tech getup Batman has and he's using a bat as a weapon. lol

I’d say my only criticism is that for con exclusives they should have put the figures in more dynamic fight poses within the box so that you reveal them in a fight scene when you open the front flap.  Ditto the Superman vs Alien set.

Unless these become available without the hassle, I've accepted the fact that I won't ever get the Batman Predator set.  I read online gripes from people who couldn't even pay for them on the site despite being right there when they became available.  I didn't even try, not only because do I not like hassle in my collecting, but $60 is a bit steep when I really only want that Batman.  I'm not mad though, good for those who could get them.  I only have the energy to be mad at Walmart right now because I can't get the Power and Glory Captain America despite the fact that I'm surrounded by Walmarts.
