John McTiernan’s mythological 1987 sci-fi action film Predator sees an elite special forces team being hunted down by a race of otherworldly extraterrestrials in Central America. Initially eschewed by highbrow critics because of its “simplistic” plot, it’s since been revered, become a cult classic and appeared on numerous significant “best-of” lists. And, as no small feat, it has spawned an entire film franchise and two crossover Alien series movies. We like to think of it as the little sci-fi film that could, kind of like the cinematic version of van Gogh. Right? You get the idea.
NECA’s seven-inch figurines have been some of the most authoritative action figures to emerge as collectors’ must-haves, and so they continue fleshing out their line with four new additions for winter. First is the Bad Blood Predator from the Deluxe Series, a Yautja who has turned against his own kind. The Series 12 Elder Predator V2 is a distinguished Yautja warrior known for his leadership and battle prowess. The Bad-Blood captor and killer Enforcer Predator of Series 12 sports trademark silver armor. Finally, the Series 12 Viper Predator is the leader of the mercenary Serpent Clan and specializes in hunting Xenomorphs (and the occasional Bad Blood).
Considering that 20th Century Fox announced a remake of the original film earlier this year, Predator is more relevant than ever. Order them separately or snag a deal with our set of three Series 12 figures, pictured below. Your Predator collection can’t be complete without these guys!
