Probably not in the next two years, Randy said they've already got the next few waves of the Predator line planned out.
Unless they make an 'ultimate' Jungle Hunter which makes perfect business sense given their success with the other ultimate figures, it would be a sure-fire money maker.
>'ultimate' Jungle Hunter
that's fine with me
I just want one without fear of it being a chinese knockoff
I've been debating on Scar Predator for awhile but I'd rather have a Jungle any day
Find a series 3 Jungle Hunter, there's no bootlegs of those as far as I know. I've seen so many bootlegs of the series 8 version I can barely spot a real one any more.
Scar looks great but he's not a replacement for Classic, I'll be getting him once he arrives in the UK.
Yes, and they're coming.
And just reposting because, because.
Also NECA confirmed on Twitter that the Stalker predator they teased WILL glow in the dark.
Man I have had a neca explosion since Christmas. Got ultimate jason and the xeno queen from family and then I found the isolation xeno, the avp predaters and in getting ultimate T-800 and ultimate Sarah Connor coming next week. I need to get rid of my marvel legends and transformers. It's all neca for me now
So I essentially own every Predator from series 7 and up, with only 4 kenner preds to go. 2 questions.
1. Why the hell is Nightstorm so expensive compared to the others. I understand supply and demand but hes not even that great.
2. Should I hold off on the 2010 black preds and the lost tribe in hopes of updates designs or just bite the bullet?
To the guy in the last thread, my figure fell apart from barely turning the torso to the left and anything that was glued down popped off. That's what I meant by needing to glue it back down.
>1. Why the hell is Nightstorm so expensive compared to the others. I understand supply and demand but hes not even that great.
Because he has a cool colour scheme. No other predator has gold armor or dark blue skin. That's pretty much all I can think of, other than that he's basically the same as Scavage, who is still very easy and cheap to obtain.
>2. Should I hold off on the 2010 black preds and the lost tribe in hopes of updates designs or just bite the bullet?
I think someone mentioned in an older thread that Randy had said he may consider doing an updated wave of movie 'Predators' but I doubt it'll be for many years, you might as well pick up what you can of the 2010 figures and enjoy them now before they fall into obsolescence. Also I believe someone ask on Twitter if the Lost Tribe will ever see an update/rerelease, his answer was a stern 'no', sadly.
I would LOVE the new series of preds but I'm broke right now. Have a $200 amazon gift card though. Guess I'll wait for them to drop in price in there. Neca store wants like 5 bucks a piece to ship each one. Even when I put all 3 in my cart shipping is like 15 bucks. Wtf. Hopefully they'll drop in price over the next couple of months.
So Randy revealed that Scarface Predator from Concrete Jungle is going to be his own special release, and not part of any predator wave
I assume this means hes going to come in a video game package styled window box like the NES and Dante figure. So I am super pumped for that.
That's great on one hand, because it means we'll be getting it earlier than I thought (if it was in a wave, it'd have to be wave 17 or later...which means the earliest we'd get it would be at the end of this year, or this time next year).
But it also means they'll probably charge a premium for it.
This ain't my first rodeo, I've been collecting them for a while. I bought the last series at toy'r'us and the series before that on amazon. Prices dropped down to like 17 bucks each on them and 21 on only one of them and all had free shipping. It's luck, but even though these are a hit, this is their most popular line and probably their most popular wave. I'm sure they planned accordingly and these will be around for months. I'm not paying 15 fucking dollars to ship that shit. They want 8 dollars for one figure. I pay their fucking premium on their SDCC preds for shipping already. IDK. Maybe ill crack. BBTS is cheaper but I don't have a gift card there. Driving to Toys'r'us and paying tax would be cheaper too. But my TRU is a shithole.
there are LOADS of bootlegs from series 3 and WORSE than the series 8, beware anon.
The bootlegs from series 8 all look terrible because they have a flat white torso with no shading, and legs are almost always solid black with white areas which kinda look like pantyhose with holes in them.
The one in your pic doesn't look that bad, are you sure it's a bootleg? I only know of bootleg Elders from series 3.
Pic related, often seen on ebay for $20 sold from China.
>I would think theyd charge like $25 for it, like the NES or Dante, thats not too bad
Well, considering the fact that the normal, basic figures continue to rise, wave after wave, I'd say it isn't going to be too long before Deluxe/Premium figures are $28~$30, instead of $25.
Just 3 or 4 waves ago, the Predators were still $17.99 per figure. Now they're $22~$23. The Deluxes will eventually go up, since we're practically paying their price for basic figures now.
>The one in your pic doesn't look that bad, are you sure it's a bootleg?
Not that guy, but the figure has the updated hip articulation, with the old, single-joint knee articulation...that doesn't even exist on an official figure, as far as I am aware.
I wanted to say some of the SW Black Series stuff wasn't so bad...then I remembered how much the Force Awakened figures suck.
Those FO Stormtroopers are a huge step back from the Clone Troopers and OT Stormies.
Well, to be fair, at least NECA has the decency to sculpt a new head, new accessories, and swap armor/belts/etc. between the figures.
Often, MLs are just the same body with a head swap and different paint.
Hasbro does all of the exact same stuff. Looking at my shelf right now, counting the AVP ones, there's three base bodies with some different shit glued on, some new pieces on top, and three have the same head sculpt.
Looking at my ML shelf, counting only Hasbro releases, there's already three unique sculpts for different characters, a bunch of the same bodies with new shit slapped on, and like one reused head.
They both do the exact same thing. There's actually more variety in my ML display than my predator display, but ones four times the size of the other so that's to be expected.
Point is, NECA makes the same kind of toys Hasbro does.
>Preds as they have nothing on the order of the Bucky Cap/Hyperion/fembod mold reuse
Most Preds are the same body with different armor or wrist pieces slapped on. It's just as bad. It's silly to argue that they're not. I have no problem admitting that NECA is all about heavily reuse. I don't know why that's grounds for mocking another line.
>Looking at my shelf right now, counting the AVP ones, there's three base bodies with some different shit glued on
Technically, there are 5 base bodies, and that isn't even counting Dutch. Also, I'll throw out the Jungle Hunter 1.0, since they haven't used it since 2011, I think, but the 2.0 body was completely resculpted from the wasted down.
Other than that, there's the Jungle Hunter 2.0, City Hunter, Super Predator, and AvP body.
Hasbro also puts out a lot more waves, and a lot more waves year after year, for MLs.
They may have more bodies, but the ratio is still probably the same.
NECA figures look a lot more detailed, feel better, and look better.
And honestly, we're only talking about Predators vs. MLs right now. NECA rarely reuses too many bodies. Predator is the worst line for that.
All companies do it. Even DC Direct/Collectibles. They do the most unique sculpted bodies, but they don't shy away from body reuse and repaints with new heads. It's just the reality of the industry.
Don't back peddle on this. You were trying to stir up some stuff again. You got called out on not even owning the figure, and now you are running. Just delete your posts, admit you made it up, and stop trolling. I have the AvP predator line and all of mine are great.
Just ignore that dude. He's insane. Nobody else cares enough to think you made up a story about toys.
Sorry your dudes broke. I didn't touch mine until after a quick run over with a blowdryer. No problems on my end.
>Nobody else cares enough to think you made up a story about toys.
Its obvious he does. He does this crap every thread, and everyone can see right through him. He either posts pictures that are proven to not be his that he found on some other toy forum, or he just makes up a story with no proof. If you believe him, then you believe he must literally be the most unlucky person who ever lived since apparently ever NECA toy he owns comes broken. It is a lot more likely and obvious that he is just a troll trying to stir shit up.
Not to add to this...uh, entirely, anyway, but I do remember the anon that faked an empty Pacific Rim clamshell and tried to make everyone believe it was shipped that way.
Of course he wouldn't provide clear images of the back, where he'd cut and pulled the toy out himself. So yeah, there are some dummies on here that just fuck around for the sake of it.
>NECA rarely reuses too many bodies
I'd argue that's a bit wrong. They DO use a new sculpt when necessary but they often reuse sculpts in other lines. Not that there's anything wrong with that when it works. I'm a person who doesn't mind reuse when it works for the figure.
But as someone who owns two Jasons, the Part IV and Ultimate one, I can say they went with Part VI for the Ultimate figure since they look is mostly identical. There's some new stuff like the gloves, belt, and torn up lower pants not to mention shit like the neck and head but it's pretty similar overall to the previous one. It's accurate to the movie but it's clear they did Jason from that movie since it'd require a minimal amount of new parts when compared to a figure from Part VII, which would require a whole new sculpt altogether.
Parts reuse was all over the place in the old T2 and NoES lines too. New necks, hands, heads, and accessories would be all you need often times. Different arms occasionally too. But again, that's accurate to the movies. It's not like Freddy or the Terminator ever had different pants or at least noticeably different pants.
tl;dr Parts reuse is everywhere these days. As long as it works well, I don't see the use in complaining.
I'd like to point out that I hate that autist who is always complaining about figures he hates so much that he keeps buying BUT I am the guy who posted about my figure falling apart where the rubber loincloth connects to the waist. I'm not trying to stir anything up, I was just a bit disappointed and I've already returned the figure for a new one that is fucking awesome.
Holy shit, from Randy's twitter today:
>A dog alien rerelease this year
>Ancient Elder (AvP) will have a cloth cape
>Dark from AvP 2010 in 2017
>Resurrection Xeno in 2017
>Newborn confirmed, but not until much later
Randy is after my heart today. Ancient Elder and Dark are literally my two most requested figures.
>A dog alien rerelease this year
Already got a dawg but might pick up another if his price drops down to MSRP again
>Ancient Elder (AvP) will have a cloth cape
>Dark from AvP 2010 in 2017
Not immensely hyped for this guy since he'll likely be a retool of Scar with wristblades on both arms. Would be a definite buy if he comes with a swappable head with Lord's mask.
>Resurrection Xeno in 2017
>Newborn confirmed, but not until much later
Never thought I'd see the day Randy would confirm making the thing he hates most from the Alien franchise
Finally got an alien Queen oday.Only problem is, the right leg is positioned in such a way that the joint is about 45 degrees from what the left leg is, so it can't spread. There seems to be a joint in the leg itself so it can rotate properly, but it's near impossible to turn due to the awkward positioning. Any tips on how to do it?
Thanks, it worked perfectly.
One more thing; I've noticed the neck seems a bit off center at the base(it's centered more towards the right, exposing the left side more). It's a minor issue, but any fix for that?
>waited too long to get into Dead Space
>half the DS stuff is either fantastic or terrible
Picked up the art book a month ago for $13. Movie's are okay. First two games our amazing. Third game is incredibly mixed.
>I'd rather have DS1 but it's going to be a while before I drop that much for a figure.
The aftermarket prices are only going up my friend, if you see a good deal ($50-60) I suggest you go for it.
>National economical crisys hit hard, everything imported costs 4x the original price
>ok, this year i'll save some money, i have plenty of figures alrea...
>AvP preds finally arrives at my country
>Isolation Xeno as well
>Lich King any day now
Yeah, moving on. Wouldn't be cool if in the next general we start to do cool stuff with the figures like the lego bros? I don't know, maybe trying to replicate scenes from movies or creating different settings. What do you think?
Sounds good but my options are kinda limited in terms of backdrops. I usually just take pics at my desk.

Take that scalper scum
I'm just still sort of reeling over the price I got the lost tribe for, I guess.
I paid $18.99 USD less than a year ago for the Warrior/Ram Predator, and I paid $19.99 for Boar.
Strangely, NECA got a few Boars and Shaman Predators like, a year ago on their eBay page. I missed Shaman, but got Boar.
I think the only Lost Tribe figures I paid more than retail for were Shaman, who I got for $40 USD (and he was the last one I needed, so I was fine with it) and Snake, which I think I paid a few extra dollars for on amazon.
I've heard your story a few times before, I was jelly now and I'm jelly then.
Stop rubbing it you jammy sod :^)
I like Boar but his sports bra is a weird design choice.
Shaman is a cool character all round..
Despite being an obvious mashup of Jungle Hunter/City Hunter parts, Scout is still one of my favourites. His skin colouration and bloody claws are neato.
>I was jelly now and I'm jelly then.
Getting my tenses mixed up, but you get the idea.
>I've heard your story a few times before, I was jelly now and I'm jelly then.
>Stop rubbing it you jammy sod :^)
So, what you're saying is you want an updated pic of the Predator shelves?
>no Tracker or Hound
>no Masked Berserker
>no masked Jungle Hunter
Shit collection/10 would give you tree fiddy for the lot :^)
There's only like, four more Predators I really need before I'll pretty much be caught up on all the ones I want;
Masked Jungle Hunter
Masked City Hunter
Unmasked City Hunter and Berserker, along with that Water Emergence Jungle Hunter would be neat, but not really necessary.
Those four you listed are must-haves, really really great figures, especially City Hunter.
I'm pretty happy with my collection as it stands, I'm not in a hurry to finish off the Lost Tribe, and I don't collect Kenner/comic/video game repaints (other than Ahab who I picked up super cheap) so I'm good on that front.
My only regret is not picking up Albino while he was £15 on Amazon, now he's £25-30 everywhere else, my Dead End trio will be forever incomplete :^(
The Kenner figures are really cool, but I really don't blame people for skipping them.
I had a ton of the Kenner Alien and Predator figures in the 90s, so NECA doing updated versions is pretty neat.
I'm not in love with all of the figures, but the two they've done on the Super Predator body (Nightstorm and Scavage) look badass. And I like Renegade a lot, because he was my favorite of the original Kenner figures.
I was more into action man and hot wheels when I was a kid, Predator came much later for me. My first Predator figure was some 4-5 inch tall thing I got from Forbidden Planet in Newcastle. I cannot for the life of me remember the brand or which predator it was, but I remember it scaled nicely with my Star Wars figures, and came with a combistick and shuriken (must have been AvP actually). I think I might have had to assemble it myself too.
Do you collect xenos? I see you have the new Renegade predator from the two pack, but no black xeno on your shelf.
I was all in on the Kenner Toya until some of the later waves started getting much harder to find, and then a lot of stuff only wound up KB Toys...and by that point our mall had closed theirs down.
I loved playing with those figures though, I mean geez, it was monsters fighting monsters, what was there not to love?
>Do you collect xenos? I see you have the new Renegade predator from the two pack, but no black xeno on your shelf.
KB man. That takes me back.
I had like, the first two waves or whatever of the Alien and Predator stuff. I was out by the time the Hive Wars subline came around, so some of the later Predator and Alien stuff I really didn't like much anyway, once I saw it after the fact. I loved the Kenner Jurassic Park stuff, and the Terminator stuff too. Funny looking back and thinking that KB was the "overpriced" toy store of the day. Now, even their prices looked dirt cheap.
I only have four at the moment cause they take up so much damn when they're posed.
Yeah, I had to move them off the shelf for now. Once I got the AvP Preds I had to expand the Predator collection from three shelves to four.
For the Xenos, I have 1 brown, 1 blue, 1 red, 1 black, 1 warrior from the Kenner AvP set, 2 Isolation Xenos, 1 Dog Alien, and the NES Dog Alien.
Try to predict some unannounced waves this year
Xeno warrior rerelease
Alien 3 Ripley
Dog alien bloody repaint
Aliens 2 pack:
Gorman and Burke
Genocide black Queen
Ultimate Jungle Hunter
Anyone remember all the predators with the Elder at the end of AvP? There was a ship lined with them, and several came out to carry Scar back to the ship?
Did they have unique designs at all? Think they are a possiblity for future AvP bodies? I fucking love the AvP wave and I'll snatch up any AvP sculpt repaints in a heart beat if they keep the same quality.
I doubt there's any chance of a Gorman/Burke 2-pack.
I think the AvP Elder might be an SDCC exclusive this year....which'll make me sad.
My money is on this year's end-of-year two packing being something AvP related. Maybe a Battle-damage Scar, and an accurate tail Grid.
Went to TRU, F.Y.E and Vintage Stock today. No one had shit for predators or heroes of the storm s2 except FYE had an Arthas for 24.99. I pulled up their twitter and they had a 20% off one item coupon so I used that. Cost me a little over $21. Fine with me. But fuck me my TRU is a pile of shit.
>Neca does 8 unique, clothed sculpts for Hateful 8
>keep telling us that more Predator humans is impossible
Its starting to piss me off. I like the line, but there is no excuse we don't have at least the main characters from each of the films.
Royce and Isabelle.
There's a pretty goddamn good reason actually, one that's been mentioned a number of times.
Those people either want too much money for their likeness or they won't give up their likeness at all. That is why we aren't getting them. Stop complaining or negotiate the rights with the actors yourself.
Dillon is a weird one, considering they've done Apollo Creed figures in the past. Maybe he's an anti-gun nut like Sigourney? Probably that or he wants too much money for likeness rights
Again, probably wants too much money for likeness rights.
>Royce and Isabelle
They're probably worried about Predators humans not selling, considering the movie wasn't that well received and it came out like 6 years ago now.
If they're not going to make any money in the end, what sense does it make to pay the actors whatever they ask for?
They're a business, and they have to sometimes make decisions that kinda suck if it means they aren't going to lose money.
I want a Nicholson Joker. Bad. But I get why they don't want to pay as much money as he wants for his face. Jack has nothing else going for him except his legacy, so of course he asks for an exuberant amount.
HOLY FUCKING GOD. EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND GO WATCH THIS VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp4ZBhsriy8
I clicked the first review for my Arthas I just bought and this guy sounds like he's running a marathon from simply posing the figure. Holy fatfuck
Sounds like you got one of the Hot Toys Snap Kits.
>Hot Toys Snap Kits
Thank you anon, I had no idea what they were called.
I can't remember if it was Scar or Celtic, but I loved that little Predator.
Sadly I lost him after moving house several times over the years, all I have left is a broken combistick and the shuriken.
I'd love to get one on ebay for old time's sake. Lets hope the aftermarket prices aren't too high.
Damn these were cool little figures for the time. Better than the McFarlane AvP figures that's for sure.
Yep, Genysis body. I'm 100% okay with that. Wish he came with the blade arm though...that's a minor complaint, for me anyway.
I still want an Exploded T-1000 to replace my McFarlane one.
Neither was the ultimate T-800, if you want to get nitpicky (WHERE'S MY FUCKING GLOVELESS HANDS NECA) but seriously these are some of the best figures I've ever seen in this scale and at this price point. Totally shits on anything they or anyone else has done in the past.
Went to Toys R Us today after the movies just to see what they had in stock. Saw they had the video game styled characters and picked up Jason in his musical box.
But jesus christ this was the first time I've ever seen a scalper in real life. This monstrous hunch backed mongoloid had every predator figure in his arms and you couldn't get within five feet without smelling the most awful lingering shit smell.
Did everyone forget that Albino is supposed to look dumb and ridiculous, and that's part of his character?
His back story is literally that he got picked on and bullied at school by the other, cooler Predators because of how he looked, so he became a vicious asshole who beat anyone up who made fun of him.
You have good taste.
Only have this photo on my laptop at the moment, and the orange is a little faded because of the editing I was playing around with.
I want a single Ripley but I can't decide if I want Nostromo spacesuit or regular jumpsuit. Leaning towards the Nostromo spacesuit just because spaceman is cooler looking than regular ass jumpsuit.
There's a guy that buys up all the new shit to sell at his toy shop, locally. He's not necessarily an ass, but he's a businessman, so he has no problem screwing over anyone getting stuff at retail if it means directing the sales to his shop. Your encounter sounds....awful though.
Not exactly the best place to pick up Neca figures, considering it's mostly price gouging third party sellers behind most of the stock. Try eBay, I've seen Big Chap go for dirt cheap on there.
Literally never seen a figure, Japanese or American, not sell for scalper prices on eBay. Just a quick glimpse proves that true. They're all going for high prices and the only ones anywhere near $20 are from China and I wonder why that would be.
>Literally never seen a figure, Japanese or American, not sell for scalper prices on eBay.
You're clearly not checking several times an hour like me then. I picked up a brand new boxed blue Xenomorph for £13.99 the other day, that's £6 less than what they go for at retail. I often see the more common Neca figures like Scavage/Renegade/Tracker/Windrix/Lava Planet etc go for £15 or less.
Rare/out of print stuff will obviously sell for more, but that's just the way the world works.
Perfect example of reasonable prices on ebay, most of these figures would cost you £25 in an actual store.
Will NECA do Prince or anyone else from the popular and well-known 2001 Aliens vs Predator 2 video game?
No word on it so far, but they are making Scarface from Concrete Jungle, so preds from other games are not impossible.
If you guys had to choose only one, the Isolation Xeno or one of the AvP preds, which would you pic and why?
Pic unrelated, but it's cool.
I'd choose Celtic predator.
I like predators more than xenos, and Celtic is the only one the three who comes with an extended combistick. And his mask design is the best. And he had the best fight scene in the movie, even if he fucked it up in the end.
Adding to the discussion about video game aliens/predators, I'd love to see a praetorian figure.
It'd probably have to be a deluxe release due to the sheer size of the thing, maybe if it came with a few eggs and facehuggers they could price it around the $30-40.
Kenner did several larger aliens that would go well with a Praetorian body. I'd say that increases our chances of getting one, since they can reuse the sculpt.
I'd agree they'd have to price higher.
I'm currently waiting for the scalper prices for Isolation xeno to go down. I'd say go for the preds, they look nice as hell. I'm getting my chopper today but I agree with the other anon about the celtic being the best.
>literally everyone on ebay selling off their Neca Goblin King figures now that David Bowie is dead
Supposedly packaging art sketch or somesuch. Spiked Tail Kenner Pred confirmed! I hope he has the ridiculous shuriken things too.
Unfortunately, Randy has repeatedly said Harrigan is too much of a niche interest to make money off of. Which I think is bullshit.
Harrigan & Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton's character) would be an awesome 2-pack.
Sarah's great. Saw that the T-1000 is in stock on TRU.com now, too. Gonna have to pick him up as soon as I can.
>Better than the McFarlane AvP figures that's for sure.
They were pretty ass.
Hot Toys snap kits were pretty subpar until the Appleseed line and by then, they stopped making them. which is a damn shame.
The guys on Fwoosh seem to love it. I've heard nothing but good, other than the legs being "scary tight" ratchets...but that'll help keep it upright.
Finally found a Supes tonight. How do I make sure I don't break him? I've heard his legs snap very easily and that hot water doesn't help, but I read somewhere they fixed the issue with the second run of him. Is there a way to tell if I got a fixed version? Serial number maybe?
His left leg likes to break at the hip the most ,as well as knees and elbows, so just be very careful with those. If he does break you should be able to get a replacement still by messaging neca_CS on twitter.
I wish the Stormie could peg the sniper rifle into his back. have to keep it in the box
I had a snap kit Predator and a McFarlane Scar. The snap kit had much better articulation and the arm blades were removable. (So you could have a movie accurate mini figure) I liked having a Predator that as scaled with my 1:18 star wars figures too.
McFarlane made decent semi-statues, but as toys their stuff was pretty lame. I still have Scar, though he's missing most of his accessories.
It's great provided you get the open lips variant.
As one other said, the hips are really tight and moving them feels scary...the ratchets "snap" in to place when moved.
The only real downside is the weight of the figure. You have to use its tail to prop it on becuase it doesn't have the footprint to stand on its own reliably
Interstellar to me was like Prometheus
>big budget overhyped piece of crap
>figures that nobody asked for
Props to them for making rapesquid though.
goddamn this is a stupid thing to argue over
post more necas
nightstorm is fucking beautiful but damn those ankles
Can't wait for summer so I can start taking pics outside again.
That's one of the only pics I have where he's not zonked out.
i bought one of those bootlegged pred hound and goddamn it's a piece of shit
it's identical in the packaging but once i opened it, crap joints, excess plastic cause the joints to tear
This packaging makes me really hope we get Ultimate Editions of the other three main Jaegers
Pretty much Hong Kong Brawl Gipsy, but comes with:
>Damaged arm from AA/RB Gipsy that can replace a normal arm
>Boatsword plus gripping hands
>Reactor Blast effect (chest turbine has the slot for this)
>Shipping containers + relevant hands from BatD Gipsy
All new in the vein of Ultimate Striker
>Improved articulation (Bicep/forearm swivels, ankle pivots, balljointed wrists, "finger" articulation on left hand)
>More screen-accurate paintjob
>Rocket effect pieces for the back
>Hands can be swapped for Thundercloud Formation buzzsaws
>Ratcheted leg joints, current Crimson Typhoon's go very limp very quickly
>Mostly the same as the current one
>Effect pieces for the shoulder flamethrowers
>Reactor is more easily removable and can be swapped with an acid-damaged version
>Right hand can be swapped for a version of it after Otachi mangled it
>Slightly improved articulation so it can do the fist smash taunt
>Maybe slightly narrower hips
Hey, man, I dig my Engineers, and I really wanted a Noomi Rapace figure!
>Neca will never finish the Prometheus line with Meredith, Elizabeth and Janek
>Charlize Theron will never handcuff you to a bed and rape you
Why even live?
Well I went ahead and bought the new pred wave from TRU. They really do have a great price on them, being shipping is free and tax was like 2%. Even with my $200 amazon gift card, neca store wanting 7 bucks a piece to ship one fucking figure is a joke. Can't wait for these to get here. Now all I need is HotS Tyrael and I'm set for a while on toys
Are you talking about how they basically aren't aligned right making it near impossible to stand? I have both Nightstorm and Renegade, and I have to lean them both against a wall because neither one can stand in basically any pose.
Renegade is on the Jungle Hunter body which stands just fine.
Do you mean Scavage?
My Scavage can't stand on his own, and the holes in his foot seem to be slightly to big for the peg, so even the stands don't seem to really work well for him.
They had mutant Fifield and Shaw already sculpted, painted, and ready to go. Everything from the first 2 waves sold like shit.
Shame, because their engineers were pretty high quality, and the rapesquid is still one of my favorites.
Actually, speaking of the Prometheus line, everything but the Deacon is still under retail value on Amazon. I might pick up David and another Engineer just because they are so cheap.
Also, damn I need to dust that top shelf off. There are fucking spiders living up here, man.
>My Scavage can't stand on his own, and the holes in his foot seem to be slightly to big for the peg
The problem with like half my preds are the holes in the foot are too shallow. The pegs are the official Neca stands are pretty long, and ones in the feet aren't. So the figure is basically trying to balance ontop of the peg which obviously doesn't work.
I really wish NECA would release some better quality stands. Or sell the Dog Alien/Isolation stands separately.
I've never really had any issues with the Jungle Hunter or City Hunter bodied-figures. Just the Super Predators. Those nubbins they have for feet just don't work, the stands don't work super well for them, and even their articulation makes it a bit finicky to get them to stand properly even when you get everything else to work.
I mean, its the same here for me. The only ones that outright can't stand without leaning are my two super predators, and one of my kenner pred with a super loose that collapse under him.
But still, the stand problem is an issue because it means I can't any super dynamic poses out of these things. All that articulation is wasted if the only thing they can do is stand around nonchalantly.
The AvP Preds don't need no stands, and can do pretty well on their own in some pretty good poses. I think a big part of it too is that they have so much better ankle articulation than the existing predator bodies, so it allows for them to have wider stances, while still allowing their feet to be flush on the ground.
I think I posted this in another neca general a while back but you can get clear obitsu stands for 5.99 a pop here
They hold neca figs no problem and can be configured in different ways. When I finally snag the iso alien I'll be using one on him.
Daily reminder to report all the above posts for flamming/trolling and generally distracting from the thread.
Don't respond to them. Just report them, and post preds.
Here's my AvP trio. Now just the painful wait for AvP xenos to fight them.
U wot m8? That's Scarface's mask.
Very similar to Celtic's, but with spikes down the middle and a red mark on the left eye.
gotta do something with my SF4 figures :^)
Arkham Knight can't hold his rifle, sadly.
He can, it's just a bit of a stretch and the pose is kinda lame.
He holds this ghetto ass lever action shotgun better.
I love how well these DC Collectibles scale with Neca Predators. It's a shame they don't have as many accessories as their Japanese counterparts.
I got Figuarts Iron Man Mk45 today and he's fucking awesome, one of the coolest figures I own.
Little taller then the NECA humans, but the NECA accessories are a little too big for the DC collectibles. such is life. It's one of the main reason I haven't really unboxed most of my Figuarts or Figmas. hard to scale with other Figures. I suppose I can use a seperate area for them, though.
>tfw too short
It sucks that Neca will never have the licenses to make Marvel/DC figures in their own weird scale. Unless they pull some sort of Dvd tie-in trick like they did with the Keaton/West/Ledger/Reeves figures, I don't see that happening with Bale Batman or Iron Man though.
>tfw a manlet even among the other Figuarts and Gremlins
Im curious to know if the Bad Blood Predator is worth getting.
Personally its my favorite Predator comic and the fucker is a legit psychopath
he's pretty tight. meaning cool, though. as mine's legs are pretty loose as well as his left hand.
He's a pretty good figure, though.
Kinda surprised the Dark River pred or the Judge Dredd Pred hasn't been made into figures yet
I wasn't a big fan of the cartoony paint job (its all matte color. Doesn't have have the skin gloss to it like a lot of the other preds. I hated the human faces), but otherwise, its just a jungle hunter that is more detailed than average, so its pretty good. If you like the comic look, then there is no reason not to get it.
Just ordered Part 3 Jason for $53. They really need to make more Jasons.
how many preds do you know that have nipple piercings?
also, his triple wrist blades are sick
Choptop from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Now that we know more than just Leatherface is on the table, I hope we get a sheriff and Grandpa.
Think Ancient Elder will be a premium release, or because they can do masked and unmasked varients, part of a normal wave?
Also, we never get a good look at these guys, but fuck it, I want them anyway.
Aren't those the guardians comming in the next wave?
Trying to buy the Big Chap but I'm kinda confused I keep seeing two different packaging and I don't know which is legit or if one is even a bootleg?
The one on the right is an old version NECA did like, 7 or 8 years ago. It has a lot less articulation and doesn't look quite as good and whatnot.
The one on the left is the more recent one in the actual Aliens line.
There are bootlegs of that older one, but I don't think there are any of the newer one. Keep in mind too, that the newer one was actually re-released back in December in a window box (similar to some of their newer Terminator figures and their DC figures) if you happen to see one packaged like that in your search.
>muh neca needs mighty max toys
get kek recked scrub and make your own. its good neca cant get jack shit, not even GTA characters which is a good thing
just like how maybe they were gonna make five nights at freddys stuff? face is, neca is becoming irrelevant hard and konami will never let dumb hamhand ameritards make such a profitable franchise
>squenix makes metal gear paks for years
>neca maybe shows interest
hah. please, give a reason why neca gives a shit now. oh wait, kojima hates them, but does it make a difference when Japanese hate Americans so much and would rather let Japanese companies make their own products? any reply that calls it a troll is just sour and will continue to be especially since neca will never make MGS toys, which is a very good feeling I will forever carry
Its nice knowing Neca will never get to make a Quiet, and even if they did get the license shit what am I typing, they will NEVER get the license, but either way, they are sexist misgonisty straight white males who wouldn't want to make such a delisious trap waifu for how backwarfds their redneck ideology is. :)
struck a nerve? oh right, keep crying in your corner knowing Neca fails and will never get the MGS license. even GSC was able to make MGS toys, what is taking Neca so long? are they retarded like the americans they are?
sup /v/, you upset Neca is as retarded as /v/ and can never get the MGS license? feels so good they never will make anything from it seeing how mcfarlane, the company they all came from, fucked it up for all of them
wait, let me laugh a little louder at how incompatible the two phrases are when put together, its like mayonaise on chocolate
I cant believe how a lot of you can point out what movie/comic preds are from. Holy smokes. I've got a predator omnibus and all the predator movies, but there's no way I could ever tell you what predator is from what except for the 1 in 7 or so that is super obvious
How do you guys feel about series 15 preds? When they unveiled them, I was very disappointed. Wave 14 were similar looking enough, and then wave 15 doesnt look much different from 14 and even then, the 3 from wave 15 look exactly the same baasically.
It's a bit of a relief for me, since I will only be buying one of them. I'll probably get scar because he was cool in the movie. What about you guys? I like the fact that I'll only buy one because it'll help save space/money. But then again, maybe I'll end up buying all 3. I was just severely disappointed with S15
They look the same because thats canon. Sculpt and paintwise, these are best predators yet. Zero complaints. And we will be getting Kenner preds on this body soon enough, so just have a bit more patience if you want something different
+Cool sculpt and paint
+can be army built
+more humans are always good
-Sculpt looks like it will hinder articulation a great deal
-I've heard literally no one ask for this. A lot of figures should have been earlier in line
I'll buy one, but I'm not exactly super hyped like I am for some of the other stuff they've announced. If they do Weyland and Ripley, I might pick up another one of these to act, so Weyland can have an escort on either side.
>I've heard literally no one ask for this.
Then you must be new. Because there's actually been a few people asking for these guys...on Fwoosh, moreso, but everyone on here's too busy fighting to get excited over new things.
I have 2 predictions for NECA's toyfair reveals
first off is an obvious one, a colored variant of the 1954 Godzilla
Second is an Ultimate Chucky figure. Back around halloween time someone asked for the possibility of it and Randy responded with "perhaps" I wonder if theyd make the box like the movie poster like the other ultimate figures, or make it look like a goodguy doll. Sucks that it probably won't be in scale to their other horror figures, I doubt theyd make a figure that tiny.
Pretty safe predictions, I know, but they're totally gonna happen. Randy says they're gonna reveal two horror figures for the Ultimate line. What is the other going to be? I hope Pinhead from Hellraiser. Normally I'd say Michael Myers but, we all know how that is.
Honestly though, it's probably gonna be another Freddy, it was confirmed we will be getting more Freddy's this year, and not all in the retro format. I'm pretty sure I read that on twitter.
As for horror, they've already said that we're getting at least 5 new Freddy's and more Jason figures, but nothing on what that entails. So those two horror figures could easily be an Ultimate Dream Warriors Freddy and maybe something along the lines of a New Blood Jason.
Theyve been trying to get the rights back for years, but the rights holder won't budge at all.
I guess Funko cut them a better deal, cus they make Michael Myers funko pops and reaction figures..
Supposedly as far as the rights are concerned someone is out of the picture as of recently so hopefully that helps NECA and the right holders come to an agreement easier
Senpai, you can literally rotate pictures with a right click. Please do so in the future.
Also, pleas pose Big Chap being lewd with Stormies
anyone ever get an item that was listed as sub par from Big Bad before? was the box super shit? I want Ultimate Leatherface but part of the appeal of the Ultimates line are the boxes to me and I don't want it to be super shit
Not as well articulated as I hoped but I'm pretty happy with him!
>tfw no Vintage Suit figure
God damn I wish this line hadn't died off so quickly
I grabbed these two at some store while on a trip, they're actually my first necas and I'm loving them, they're pretty fun and the accesories are great, I'll consider getting more of these soon.
I want to compleate a colection, and then costom some, but they are rape prices. at least releliece the light up bouncer, Rosie, enete bouncer. than thow in Jack (with a face based on matt daemon, not bioshock infinate B.A.S's version), Fontane (with swappable hands for different plasmid powers), and a prop plasmid bottle that changes colour. ether Red, Orange, Green, Blue, or strobe.
My aliens arm broke off today. I tried to make the best of it. Maybe ill make it into a battle-damaged custom
Since we already have the dog alien several series ago, what other variant could they do with the dog within Alien 3? Infant dog alien with royal facehugger? Come to think of it, didn't they once tease the royal hugger on FB?
i know NECA has a pretty active twitter account, have they ever mentioned doing a re-release of the dead space franchise?
>unrelated, have a wallpaper.
Anyone had problems with any of the Pacific rim stuff?
My Tacit Ronins foot fell off, and Romeo Blue's leg fell off. They had both been sitting on a shelf and haven't been touched in months.
Kind of gutted, because they were two of my favourite.
