Jungle Hunter and City Hunter to be at Toyfair, with new Predators to be unveiled closer to the film's release. Discuss. I am totally stoked.

Sound features would be awesome for a Predator, think about how cool that would be, the sound of his infra red sight,that purr like cackling sound they make,plasma caster firing(blue LED added and timed with sound),"want some candy" lol!..i would love if they added these features.

I mean they dropped the ball in that they could have done so much more than just a great Dutch and an ok Billy. What about the rest?

HT, and likely NECA, didn't flesh out the rest because they don't have likeness rights under the Predator license and would have to pursue each person's individual rights. I can't figure why they made Billy at all with no likeness, other than maybe feeling the P1 line had to have at least 3 figures to feel right to collectors, like the ALIEN line. HT acknowledged the demand for top quality, accurrate, realistic figures in a recent article, which means they realize that collectors aren't content to buy figures anymore with the likeness games of ALIENS era. I'd say, the deemed Dutch the only one worth all the extra cost and effort to get a likeness right for and Billy the best and easiest figure to roll out without a likeness but still have some value and the rest of the team not worth making at all.

If NECA puts out the humans, I'd say it'd very likely be without likenesses too, they might be able to get away with it on $15 figures, but for those thinking NECA will be the answer to having an awesome set of Dutch's team in their collection, if likenesses are a key factor in that, you'll probably be dissappointed. I'm not sure they'd even do the full team anyway, NECA's really big on recycling parts over mutliple figures, like the AVPR Wolf figure or the T2 figures, Dutch's team can't really share parts because of their different sizes and costumes. My guess is, if they do humans, maybe a couple Dutch figures to share molds.

well, i guess we can look forward to 5 different releases of the same damn sculpt.
and, neca, just sculpt 2 heads so there won't be a big ugly seam on the unmasked face.
also, make ALL of the P2 Lost preds. HT gave up and broke my heart.

At the least they should make Dutch in his 3 main guises - full combat gear, poster gear and muddy Dutch. Its an Arnie figure - a guaranteed seller. They've made Conan and T-800 so why not? I'd love the entire team and it annoys me how unlikely that is due to the likenesses issue and the unwillingness to make so many unique sculpts. But OK. Arnold Schwarzennegger at least though. People will buy him endlessly.

MaulFan
02-03-2010, 04:43 PM
I wouldn't chalk up Harrigan's team to bad acting as more bad writing. The goofy jokes from The Lone Ranger, Bill Paxton's not a bad actor, but I don't think anyone was going to deliver those gags and not come off a bit foolish.

I actually think Glover is a big factor in that movie being alright to watch. With most of the screen time spent around Harrigan and crew, you needed a lead that could actually have some humanity and performance, which Glover brought. Glover, Busey and Paxton were fine castings, it was the script and unusual world in which the story took place that I found holding P2 back a bit. King Willy was cool, but the whole concept of the tribal drug gangs working the inner city and the voodoo attacks and all that, it just doesn't seem believable, even in a fictional story about an unknown future, it just seemed very out of context, like civilized and uncivilized culture in the same space and they just didn't belong together.

You missed my point. Glover doesn't have to be replaced by another black actor, just someone younger and more believable in the role. Predators are supposed to hunt down the toughest SOB's on our planet, not some damn near 50 year old cop:lol But I guess they did it just to have someone completely opposite of Arnie in the sequel:confused: Whatever it is, we'll agree to disagree

Valfar
02-03-2010, 04:57 PM
You are not making sense to me, where do you expect the Predator to show up at? Mr Olympia competition?.Hell, if they look for the toughest SOB's then i guess they should have went to a Army base and caused ruckuss.

White, black,Chiney whatever! lol..Glover was fine, i think since Arnold was the first to battle a Predator, the fans only expected that some roided dude was the only thing that could stand toe to toe with a Predator which i think is BS.

I perceived the Predator chasing Harrigan not as a physical match but for psychological, that he was smart and clever, which is ultimately how he beat the Predator, it wasn't power. It was a match of who was most clever/crafty.

I liked Glover in the movie. Snipes could have done as good as job but it didn't need him. I thought they could have replaced the Dutch character with any of those actors whose main job is to be the 'muscular action hero' first and a good actor second. People like Van Damme, Steve Segall maybe Hulk Hogan but that would be pushing it. Arnold was great in it but he didn't have to do a lot to do unlike Glover which is probably for the best for him.

Realy cool news when are those predator figures coming out????
the OFFICIAL release date for the movie is july 9th. but, the avp movies were rightfully panned by critics and the box office suffered.
so, my spider-sense says it will get pushed back till at least late august with all the other movies that studios lose money on.

in other words, don't start holding your breath for merchandise yet.

Even their Wolf was better than any McF Pred I've seen. Seems they picked up the ball from where Todd dropped it.

It's really easy to pick up the ball that's for sure. I'm hoping we get Alien 3 and give the fans a figure they should've gotten 7 years ago. Such a shame the guys at McFarlane didn't really care at all about film accurarte figures. I'm not a fan of the movie Alien 3 but Tom Woodruff himself told me it would make his day if we would make a new figure of it. Tom and Alec both were really unhappy with all the McFarlane figures of their work.
I'm looking at our new Predator figure right now and if China comes through on this figure fans that like film accurte figures will really enjoy this guy. As a huge fan myself this prototype is a dream come true for me. Maybe Alien 3 will happen. I'm hoping for the queen myself. Alien and Predators take forever to sculpt but in the end it's way worth it I think. They're just so freaking cool.

02-07-2010, 07:36 PM
The NECA P1 could best the HT figure visually because of the benefits of their different styles.

NECA figures are jointed in such a way, or even lack joints, that allow for a more accurrate body build and construction, where HT figures use full atriculated bodies and certain license is taken with parts to accommodate the ability to be articulated as it is.

I agree though, please don't articulate anymore Predators like the Wolf, Wolf was a sharp looking figure but the posability wasn't so great, and the actual chosen gesture was a bit strange.

I'm confident though, that in the right hands the P1 and P2 would be sculpted in a pose that's a fair representation of the creature from each film.

The wolf was a good figure but the Predator 1 should be much better. If we can were going for a better articuated figure this time. HT's is a great figure for that but to me it should be a better sculpt. I own it and love it but the likeness isn't all that great. Aticulation on it rules and it's a way fun figure. Our prototype looks so nice and we want and hope we'll get to articulate the figure the way were planning too. The sculpt on this Predator took longer than my Alien and it's a better sculpt.

We'll see and for me the Elder is the best Predator ever. You can never get enough Predators in my book. It's been hard the last two months working on Predators but I think we'll make Predator fans real happy. One thing for sure is this, not one Predator figure out there has the backpack and gun accurate on any predator figures. Not Sideshow, CM or HT's. I think we nailed it at long last on this figure. I tried very hard to make it look like Kevin Peter Hall is back and ready for action.

just for the love of god, no seams on the unmasked face. please. i'll beg if i have to.

and i've given up on hoping for 1:6 aliens from neca. which is a shame.
i'll have to be content with HT's overpriced half-assed approximations.


oh also, make ALL of the lost preds. easy way to reuse sculpts. just sayin.

Really, I thought you were in love with the McFarlane Alien. I guess things change but sometimes that's a good thing.

You can pose the McF alien really well....:confused:

You made it...you should know that. In fact, the McF Alien has more articulation then the Medicom Alien (or I should say, more movement...)

I've been checking this thread a couple times a day since posted... Man I am so hyped with this new figures we are getting, and I don't even know how they look :lol

I think in some level I am even more excited than with the announcement of HT P1, don't get me wrong, I love HT Predators (got Wolf, P2 and P1), but they are such expensive figures I HAVE to refrain myself from toying with them too much. With Neca's figures I know I can play with it all I want because if I break it I can just buy another one for a couple of bucks, plus they look awesome (recently fell in love again with my Neca Wolfy and have him on my desktop) :peace

Alien 3, wow lots of you guys want that one but how about the Queen?
I just finished the P1 mask last week and I feel really good about the way it looks. We're snowed in here in NJ but I'm still trying to finish some more kick ass Predator stuff. We've got 5 Predators going at this time and they all look so cool. Oh yeah Predators rule.

the mcfarlane queen was decent and there's no way to top the halcyon/tsukuda posable kit on accuracy. so i can wait for another queen figure.

You can make a GREAT GREAT and very ACCURATE alien queen, specially the body structure and their face with that aliens mouths that you know how to make very very good!!!.

Well we want the dog alien very much but rest assured all or at least most of us would definitely buy the Queen. If it could come with the egg laying thing that'd be something else although I appreciate that that may not be possible.

Alien 3 does have a good fanbase here though it seems. I like that because the Special edition really improved the film. I found it believable as part of the same universe as Alien and Aliens. Not so with anything that followed.

I've owned the Halcyon kit for years and one thing is wrong on it. The detail is really soft and could be much more realistic. It's also a kit and not an actin figure. McFarlane Queen was a tough one for me at the time. I was told B team would sculpt it and us A team guys had to do the main thing. You know sports and all. Funny I sometimes wonder what Todd thinks as his company seems to be the Titanic and some of us got in the boats while we still had the chance too.
Both figures need to be made again and I hope we got a shot at it. If it's up to me we would do all the Predators in Predator 2. I was looking at the McFarlane Predator 2 the other day and couldn't help but think what a piece of crap. We all were at work the other day looking over the Mctoys 12 inch Predator and we all said it looked so sad really. Such a great thing to be done so half assed. I just hope we get China to pull through. Predator fan will be really happy and I'm a fan myself and can't wait. The Predator has been such a long wait that I can't really believe it's now in my past. Bring on the Queen.

Thanks so much and I just want what you want most. Accurate Aliens and Predators that kick all kinds of butt. No way would I not use the 14 foot tall Queen. Halcyon seems to have used the small puppet. Detail isn't near as good as the 14 foot puppet.

I hear what you're saying but Aliens is a way more popular movie and I think places like TRU would maybe want it more. I've noticed that in our Hastings stores back home the Alien 3 figure seems to not sell when all the others go farther quickly. Alien 3 really isn't a popular movie like the first two are. I know for a fact Alien 3 McFarlane figure was the least popular figure of the line. With that I bet we would sell a lot of them and I hope we do it.

My guess is more Terminator 2.

Kyle can probably answer, did NECA have to deal with Arnold's likeness group in addition to the film license holders for Conan?

I just think unless NECA's done it before, I'm not sure they'll pursue the expense and effort of dealing with Arnold's people for their products, and what point is a T1 line without likenesses, even at 7" scale. If they did make the effort with Conan, I'm sure they'd do it with T1, I can't imagine there not being more Terminator collectors than Conan.

NECA: New PREDATOR movie figures announced
deer mr. tankman.
as you work in NECA, i'd like to ask you something:
won't they have the same poor quality like previous neca aliens, when you need to get 2 or 3 figures to make one fully operational?
i have neca predalien and never met any problems with it, except weak leg joints.
but all alien 1 and alien 2 figures had glued joints and strangely bent heads.

another interesting question is technical: how will be the helmet function realised?
masked/unmasked versions (mouth closed/opened for unmasked) or like for HT predators?

and the third question is: if Predator 2 is made, will he be given a normal big and fat movie-like cannon or it will be the same small, plain strange thing like MF had and HT copied?

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/Tinkey-Vinkey/Aliens%20and%20Predators/Predator%202/p2_cannon_link.jpg

p.s. i hope their bodies will be fat narrow-shoulder predator bodies, not some starving superman figures with giraffe necks like HT preds.

Will see and I would hope China would do what we pay them to do. You never really know what you'll get from them but I would hope the figure would be what we want from them but you never really know.
Finger crossed the Preds will be great and when we do our figure we try very much to make it film accurate. P2 needs that to happen very much. I think paying the money HT wants you to pay means they should try harder to make the figure more movie accurate. It's funny to me that so many like to do their take on these guys but fans realy want it to be accurate. Why not when something is so freaking cool.

that would be cool, but i'm expecting the wolf business all over again. hopefully without the face seams.
so, they'll put out like 5 of the same sculpt with a couple different heads/paintapps/accessories and i'll end up buying maybe one.

it works pretty well for aliens but as predators go it just annoys me.
there's no need for more than 2 (normal, cloked) predator figures total.
at least make one of them a boxed set with dutch and some skinned bodies or something.

I never got it either but wish now I did. I kept from getting the HT Predators because it aways got me how skinny they are. I went ahead and got the P1 and ended up loving the figure. Yeah it would be nice if HT did the body more accurate but still it's such a fun figure.

That's why I collect NECA and Hot Toys. NECA's good for representation because the figures are more about sculpt than function, Hot Toys is nice because they offer some pretty solid sculpts and costumes while also giving a very versatile posable piece.

Heck yeah, I tried very much to make this figure be Kevin Peter hall's Predator. It took a very look time and the elder isn't finished yet. The hands, gauntlet and dreads still need finishing and I'm hoping to get is all wrapped up this week. Fun to see this is happing at long last. Fingers crossed China will do a great job.
you even got the elder's accessories right. AND the armor.
the ht version was missing all kinds of stuff and you nailed it.

Ah, finally!
Effing beautiful work Kyle! As I said to you earlier, this is the first time I feel like I'm looking at KPH as the predator. Truly remarkable work.
I too hope these get made in 1/6 scale! Besides, you just know that if these are made in 1/6 you'll have to re-release the aliens in 1/6 as well :D

Congratulations man, I know how much you care about these characters and how much research and work goes into them. It paid off!

Ok so the City Hunter hasn't been sculpted yet. The Elder was easy to have ready since John Rosengrant himself says he is basically the P1 Predator resprayed and redressed.

If they do P1 at 18" I'll definitely get it, I gave up on the Alien at that size because of weight issues, it's such a top heavy creature, but this Predator should stand fine all on its own.

An Elder Predator! Wasn't expecting that. This'll be my first.

Predator figures have really come on since the McFarlane days - I'd buy these for those dreadlocks alone!!

Nice to see 3 unique P1 headsculpts! I just hope I can get them all and that the quality evident here, and on the T-1000, translates down to the 7"ers. I foresee buying 2 of each of these predators just because, maybe 2 of each P1 variant.

MaulFan
02-14-2010, 01:06 PM
The quality will without question drop on the 7" figures, I'm sure they'll be great 7" figures but they'll never be like these 2 ups.

This was the semi-BD 2 up head, and look at what shipped in the 7" scale.

Even their 12" figures don't look as good as the 12 inch prototypes, it's like Sideshow, the proto painters do much nicer work than the factory guys. The 12" versions look better than the 7", but these 2 ups set the bar real high and I haven't seen a production figure meet that bar.

Problem is, NECA relies on high and and low end collectors and I'm sure some things will strike them as not worth the expense to make because they won't recoup enough in sales. A lot of die hards and serious collectors might by a trophy wall diorama, but the casual teenage kid walking into a comic shop or places like that who'd pick up a cool creature figure for $10-$15 probably wouldnt' care about a diorama that costs $25 or more.

i seem to recall paying $40+ for a certain Hellraiser boxed set that came with a sweet diorama made by a certain toy company...

no reason that can't be a box full of predators with a trophy wall. i'd pay way more for that.

And I paid for NECA's Halloween diorama set, but those also came out at different economic times and may still not have been as successful as lone figures, and those were earlier in NECA's lifetime. The closest I can think of in recent years is the Michael Myers 2pack.

02-14-2010, 02:36 PM
I've always said that NECA could do a high-er end line of figures.
Make them in 1/6 scale where the high end part of the business is nowadays, get better factories for the paint apps and QC issues, make fancier collector-friendly packaging, add some kind of base with a plaque and you're all set.
Sculpt-wise they have the quality, so I'm sure we would all pay more for better paint apps and better overall packaging and presentation.

That's one idea, the other possibility is to offer their best-sellers as a limited run of statues. Again, get much better factories dealing with the paint apps and make some awesome packaging and cool bases and you could charge a lot of money for them, provided you could get prototype level paint apps.

In some ways, the Elder may have to be made from P1 parts, since they're so similar. NECA often recycles parts to save on production costs, so anywhere that can be reused between P1 and P2 Elder without being glaringly innaccurrate will likely be reused to save money. They're $15 figures, they get great work but certain liberties are taken because they are still a bit low end.

At the moment, it's just a 12" prototype to make the 7" figures from. NECA may release it as 12", but if any Predator is released 12" it'll be the P1 first as that'd be the better seller to the broad market.

As picky as collectors are, I doubt they'd run into stores to buy a 12" Neca Elder Pred if it's not gonna "match" their HT Pred's. Plus, these are only for 7" figs at the moment, it's funny to see people work themselves up for 12", 18", and dio's already:lol

i think a 12 inch elder would sell as good as a 12 inch predator,

The problem with that is, a lot of the same type of folks who'd want the HT Elder and don't have also turn their nose up at the idea of NECA figures that they can't be in their collections with HT figures. There will be some, like myself, who would like a 12" Elder to compensate for the HT one, but I'm not sure there's enough customers to justify NECAs expense producing the figure. Die hards know the Elder and would want it, but NECA's products cater to die hards and casual fans alike and casual fans will think the Elder's like an inferior P1 variant or something and won't even know who he is, and once the die hards have bought theres, NECA could be left with too many unsold units. It's game of estimating demand for certain things, and with NECA knowing Hot Toys has already made 12" sized P1 and P2 Elder, who knows if they'll do either, they might think neither of them are worth making because someone else already has. We'll just have to wait and see. At least we'll be getting both of these at 7".

That's the problem with Toy Fair, even though it gets online press, it's really an industry show, so companies like NECA only have 12" 2 ups on display because the rest of the industry gets how they work and knows those will be converted into NECA's standard 7" format, but without that being made clear when photos are posted from the show, it leads people to think that 12" versions are going to be made.

also, how many predator 1 preds are they making, 1 or 2?

MaulFan
02-14-2010, 06:00 PM
Nothing is really known for sure other than getting at least 1 Predator 1 figure at 7" scale and the P2 Elder. There's a good chance there'll be 3 Predator 1 figures, a figure for each of the heads on display and different bodies and accessories for each. There could be 12" or 18" versions, but until they're announced, there's no telling.

Guess, based on hint from tankman the sculptor.

My guess is, 1 Predator 1 with bio, and 1 Predator with roaring and non-roaring bio-less heads. Could be even more. I'd love for one of the Predator 1 figures to come with a hanging carcass, but doubt they'll do it.

Way to go NECA. The first company to paint both sets of armor correctly. My only problem with them is the Elder's right gauntlet is still wrong. It should have the P2 blade box on it and no straps. But major props for including the sheath and bones on it.

Why the hell can NECA not release these in exactly the scale they are showing them in???!!! Amazing sculpts, real netting, and I would totally bash my HT P1 with these P1 heads. I still hate sculpted quills though.

* There will be three different versions of the original Predator figure (masked, unmasked with open mandibles and unmasked with closed mandibles)
These figures will feature a ball-jointed neck, shoulders, elbows, ankles, knees plus a V crotch and swivel thighs. Release Date: TBA

Predator 2

* The Elder Predator figure was also on display but featured a non-finalized head sculpt. This figure will feature the same articulation as the original Predator but features alternate weapons and accesories. Release Date: TBA"

SICK PREDATORS! Love 'em. Wish they wouldn't sell multiples (interchangeable heads, people -- ya did it with New Nightmare Freddy, why not here?), so I'll just buy one of each Pred.

Love that they'll be in 9" scale, as they'll go great with my Alien and Aliens Warrior (both from NECA). Amazing job on these puppies!

Quoting lines from Alien? Hell yeah, I was :lol .


BTW, I just had a thought. These won't really be 7" -- they'll be around 8" or 9" (think their Alien figs, like I said). Personally I'm psyched, since I doubt I'd get any 12" NECA Preds when I already have the HT P1 and P2 Battle-Damaged.
They'd be cheap enough for me to buy 'em ALL!

Nice proportions on the P1 body. Really hoping to see this in 1/6th scale. With proper paint apps this might overall look better than HT P1. Hope the articulation wont spoil it...

EDIT - -
I was just comparing the NECA and Hot Toys sculpts side by side and thought I might as well post these here also:

This is kinda making me think of a possible Hot Toys Predator1 DX all over again...

Neca has the best head. Hands down. But...I love the HT figure overall.

It really beats the HT sculpt by far.

Love the poses but not to keen on Elder's paint-job in particular his pale Great White shark-like skin. I pray for human figs too.
