Figures.com was at the New York Toy Fair with details on the Series 12 release of NECA’s Predator line.
Arriving this June are both the “Bad Blood” and “Enforcer” figures (both based on the “Bad Blood” comic) along with a new version of the “Predator 2 Elder” that’s massively improved with new sculpted materials, articulation, and accessories.
Series 13 will be here late summer and features “Cracked Tusk,” “Renegade,” and “Scavenge,” all based on Kenner designs.
Even before those we’ll see a “NES video game Predator” celebrating the 1989 classic in May! READ MORE
Action figure company Super 7 has already put a giant hole in my wallet with their brilliant and award-worthy release of their ReAction 3-3/4″ Alien figure line, based on original unused 1979 prototypes (they are now available at special retailers).
With the success of their first line, they’re using the upcoming New York Toy Fair to promote the next phase in ReAction retro 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! READ MORE
NECA’s at it again. I think they’re trying to capture my heart, as well as the contents of my wallet, with their ever-growing line of neon pastel figures that merge horror movie icons with the style of old school Nintendo games. Their Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger figures are still very much at the top of my wish list, and it looks like I’ll soon need to make room for another.
It looks like the next figure in NECA’s increasingly exciting line-up will be the Predator, complete with a lovely neon blue repaint. It’s all-but official, we’ll update when we know more.
As announced with our exclusive interview with Scott Allie, Editor-in-Chief at Dark Horse, the publisher will be releasing an all new limited series that unites Prometheus with the Aliens and Predator universes.

Dark Horse Comics had a banner year in 2013, affirming their position as one of the most diverse publisher in the comic book industry. The company’s line of horror titles consistently find their way to the top of Bloody-Disgusting’s pull list, with a strong focus on character driven stories with compelling artwork. The company also produces licensed titles, expanding over the past year to include new properties like “Halo”, “Zelda”, and “Avatar: The Last Airbender”.

One of the coolest promotions happening at the San Diego Comic-Con is Fox Home Entertainment’s customized Predator action figure, which comes with a pre-order of the film’s 3-D Blu-ray release.
Evan Dickson checked out the booth, took a photo with a Predator, played with the create a head feature (see what they look like below), and snapped shots of two different Blu-ray editions.
It’s $49.99 for the Blu-ray and personalized 3-D mapping doll.
For $129.99 you get both of those along with the below Predator head box set.
At least now you have a reason to own a third HD release of the 80′s classic, I think? Read more about the Predator event here. READ MORE
I don’t even know where to begin as the image gallery below is a bit overwhelming. I think it’s actually best if I highlight a few items and let you kind of carouse through it.
NECA already announced that they’ll be doing a Planet of the Apes line Wednesday morning, and although no images have been shared, yet, there are plenty of other goodies on display at the San Diego Comic-Con.
The one that caught my eye was the new Predator figure, pictured above, that features Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) through the eyes of the film’s hunter. It’s easily a must-own. There’s also a 1/4 scale version of Dutch on the way, and about 100 variations of new Predator toys, including one that absolutely blew my mind (from series 11, featured at bottom).
And while we don’t have a Ripley, still, the Alien and Aliens line continues to grow. And with the tease of a 35th Anniversary Collection arriving in 2014, I remain hopefully NECA can land Sigourney Weaver’s likeness.
Lastly, I’d like to point out some more cool Gremlins 2 toys, which makes me wish I has real shelf space for them. I love the “Wicked Witch of the West” melted Gremlin, as well as the one with the Warner Bros. log on it. I think I may just nab that for shits and giggles.
More soon, NECA is known to reveal more throughout the weekend. READ MORE
Just last night the official Facebook page for Twentieth Century Fox’s 2010 Predators was updated with a teaser image to hunt the Predator at the forthcoming San Diego Comic-Con. Speculation ran from a new game, to a sequel starring Arnold Schwarzenegger to even a reboot. It was none of the above.
The LA Times played detective and god the skinny on the “big” announcement, which goes from lame to astoundingly badass.
Says the site, to mark the 3-D Blu-ray release (that’s the big surprise – a post-conversion of a classic film) of the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring Predator, Fox is dedicating a jungle-themed booth to the film and its iconic extra-terrestrial.
Predator fans will be able to purchase custom-designed mini-figurines featuring their likeness, which is easily the coolest promotion ever to hit the Con. READ MORE
Something is stalking San Diego right now, and it may possibly be a Predator.
While the Robert Rodriguez-produced and Nimrod Antal-directed 2010 Predators had the right intentions, they sort of messed up the characterizations by making the entire cast a group of criminals – it’s hard to sympathize with murderers. Still, the heart was in the right place, and the movie was pretty fun. I’d like to see more, so long as Predators stay away from Aliens completely…
This brings us to today, where the official Facebook for the aforementioned sequel was updated with something eyebrow raising. An image with the line, “Something is coming… #HuntthePredator.” The image teases a hunt, but what are we hunting?
The San Diego Comic-Con begins this Wednesday, and Rodriguez will be there to talk Machete Kills, and presumably Sin City 2, so will he and Twentieth Century Fox also announce the Predators follow up that he’s been talking about since 2010? Or will we see some sort of new game revealed (which would be odd considering E3 just ended). What do you think? What do you want?
Watch this spot for news the second it’s revealed. Bloody will be all over the Comic-Con, as usual. READ MORE
London photographer Adam Jay, of Superhero Creations, is one of the men responsible for that incredible Zombie Iron Man cosplay we covered back in March. Since then, he’s teamed up with cosplayer Philip Lane to bring us some of the best Predator cosplay I think I’ve ever seen. The guy looks like he just walked off the film set, it’s that good. I’d say more, but I don’t think I need to. Just click that Read More button and enjoy.
Thanks to both NECA and Figures, we now have a few new images of the San Diego Comic-Con exclusives that are sure to create line-waiting havoc.
Evan Dickson is sure to be waiting a long time for me to get his hands on the “Video Game Jason,” a glow-in-the-dark version of Friday the 13th Jason from the classic 1989 NES video game. He comes rocking an axe and a machete, and runs (only) $25.
Also, take a look at some back alley shots of the “Dead End” Albino Predator, which is released to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the breakthrough fan film “Batman: Dead End” by Sandy Collora in which the Albino Predator makes an appearance.
They will be available at NECA’s booth #3145. READ MORE
The boys at Figures have been busy unloading new looks at some insane new toys coming our way in 2013/14.
Staring with the 1987 RoboCop, Hot Toys has a plethora of goodies on the way including a a new and improved 1:6th scale action figure. The new 1:6th scale MMS202D04 RoboCop Collectible Figure is the latest addition to Hot Toys’ MMS Diecast Series in which the collectible figures are made of diecast material, specially designed to look more like the armored character in the movie. The movie-accurate RoboCop Collectible Figure is highly-detailed and features a new sculpted body, black, light grey and silver armor, interchangeable lower faces, working thigh gun holster and the ability to speak memorable quotes from the movie.
The coolest of the batch is the deluxe package of the aforementioned that includes a mechanical chair, aka the Docking Station seen in the classic 1987 sci-fi film!! It also has the ability to speak, and comes with an insane amount of extra accessories. Click here for a geek boner. Just wait until you see the below imagery.
Next up is the 1987 film’s main villain – ED-209 (also originally released in 2006) – and improving it with new sculpts, articulation and sound effects. This also has the ability to speak three memorable quotes and make sound effect from the RoboCop movie. READ MORE
AFI exclusively broke the news Monday morning on the first of NECA’s many San Diego Comic-Con exclusives.
Taking place July 17-20th, convention attendees will have the chance to score the “Albino Predator” action figure. The figure is released to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the breakthrough fan film “Batman: Dead End” by Sandy Collora in which the Albino Predator makes an appearance.
The toy will feature over 25 points of articulation including ball jointed hips and double knee joints. He has brand new shoulder armor and unique Albino deco along with tribal markings/tattoos. READ MORE
There’s something about Predator that seems to bring out the best “Random Cool” stuff. From weddings to cosplay, there’s an element to the property that causes its fans to go all out. And perhaps the folks at MLO Moto were aware of such dedication when they designed this Predator motorcycle helmet. I’m not sure if $780 is an average amount to shell out on something to protect your skull at high speeds, but either way motorcycle inclined fans will probably find this to be a “must buy.”
Per Geekologie, “It’s built on an actual motorcycle helmet so it’s properly safety rated, but has been enhanced with a sculpted outer shell, a dreadlocks mullet, and even a tri-laser scope. Optional add-ons include a carbon fiber outer shell, tiny metal spears on the ends of the dreadlocks, and even a hyper-realistic airbrushed finish.”
Thanks to Jonny B for the heads up. Head inside for a better look! READ MORE
UPDATED WITH HI-RES IMAGES!
Even though NECA has yet to unveil all of their surprise announcements, the doors are officially open on the New York Toy Fair, and the toy company has already shared quite a few “first Looks.”
With new Prometheus figures to be unveiled in the next few days, the company has released prototypes of their new Aliens line, which includes Hudson, Hicks, and a slew of Aliens (such as the Xenomorph Warrior). There also appears to be an “Exploding Alien,” which is incredible.
They’ve also shared their Carrie figure, featuring a normal and varient version of Chloe Moretz as the title character, one of which is covered in pig’s blood. While the movie is in theaters this October, the toys will be in stores this August. A quick update also included a look at 3 Jaeger’s from Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, in theaters this July.
Then there’s the reveal of a ED-209 (Enforcement Droid Series 209) from Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 RoboCop. Says wiki, the ED-209, created by Omni Consumer Products, serves as a heavily-armed obstacle and foil for the series’ titular character, as well as a source of comic relief due to its lack of intelligence and tendency towards clumsy malfunctions.
Lastly, for now, come a sneak peak at new Predator and Predators, as well as a major gift to fans collecting the toys. Says NECA, “The Predator Trophy Wall”(!) is “a reward for those who collected them all. If you got everything you have all the skulls except the BIG dino one.” The Predator line consists of two versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dutch, as well as an invisible Predator.
More news and hi-res imagery coming in the next few days. READ MORE
Between its four campaigns, Mercenaries, and the new Agent Hunt mode, Resident Evil 6 is already jam-packed with content. Soon, it’s going to be even more content heavy, assuming of course you’re willing to drop the cash for the three new modes Capcom is releasing for the Xbox 360 version of the game. You can be selective about it if you’re willing to pay 320 MSP to get them individually, or you can grab them all for the collective price of 720MSP. The modes are Onslaught, Predator, and Survivors, and they sound intriguing enough. See them in action after the break.
Mizenscen shared an image of Tim Burton wearing a Halloween costume made by his mother. What’s so cool about this old snapshot is that it looks like the inspiration of Jack Skellington from the 1993 Burton-produced The Nightmare Before Christmas! Go mom!
Artist Edwin David (aka “dwinbotp”) imagines where the infamous Alien vs. Predator battle actually began. It all started with the candy, suggests his hilarious illustration.
Keeping the AvP conversation a float (and continuing to avoid using the name “Paul W.S. Anderson”…whoops!), New Zealand’s SKY TV created the following ads that depict the two famous monsters engaging in various activities, including a bout of Chess.
In the end, whoever wins, we lose! READ MORE
