[Toys] NECA Reveals NES ‘Predator’ and First ‘Planet of the Apes’ Figures!

Have you given an offering to NECA yet? If not, show your appreciation to the toy gods by sacrifice someone (or just give them your money, they earned it).

Remember when McFarlane Toys used to give a shit about us? Yeah, then they started making sports figures and ignored us (just like the jocks in high school!) McFarlane is a traiter. NECA – and Director of Product Development Rank Falk – picked up the pieces and has been giving us everything we’ve ever wanted (except for a Ripley figure – but I know they’ve at least tried!).

After blowing my mind with NES 8-bit releases of Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) and RoboCop, NECA recently revealed Predator was next. With the Toy Fair hitting New York next month, the toy company revealed a full body shot of the 8-bit Predator, although I kind of wish they made Dutch from the cover, instead of the action alien creature. It will be available this coming May.

NECA also revealed the first two classic Planet of the Apes toys, “Dr. Zaius” and a Soldier Ape” from the original franchise. Zaius serves a dual role in Ape society, as Minister of Science in charge of advancing ape knowledge, and also as Chief Defender of the Faith. In the latter role, he has access to ancient scrolls and other information not given to the ape masses. – Wiki. Enjoy the pain master below!
