Updated with the newly unveiled “Big Red Predator” from Predators and yet another “Dutch” action figure from Predator. Geek boner times 100 trillion!
Happy 25th anniversary to Predator, and happy San Diego Comic-Con day to all of you!
While most of the morning/afternoon has been less than inspiring (I want more dammit!), NECA has just blown the lid off the event that’s now open to hundreds of thousands of fans. With the launch of the convention NECA pulled the black cloth off one of the two shrouded figures to reveal a brand spanking new Predator action figure.
Heading deep into the Central American jungle, NECA shares the following look at “Dutch” (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1987 John McTiernan-directed film) covered in mud and preparing for a “Jungle Duel”. NECA is finally learning that we’d rather have the protagonists than the actual creatures. (I’d trade in ALL of my Alien memorabilia for a Ripley Power Loader set from Aliens.)
In the classic, a team of commandos, on a mission in a Central American jungle, find themselves hunted by an extra-terrestrial warrior.
