TOY FAIR 2013 COVERAGE!!!
I came late to the game with NECA's Predator series, but after I picked up my first one only a few short months ago (Series 6 Scout Predator) I've gone back and picked up the entire "Lost Tribe" and have loved every single one of them.
Looking forward to what NECA has planned for this year, I can tell that I'm going to love 2013 even more.
Only a few weeks from now, Series 8 should be hitting stores and we'll be getting our first Dutch figures. Series 8 shows two more Dutches with the "Jungle Encounter" Dutch (which is a bare-chested "Jungle Patrol" Dutch sans camo tank top) and the mud covered "Jungle Disguise" Dutch which we saw back at Comic-Con in July. And to go with that Dutch, we've got a new Predator for Series 10 from the scene where his cloak goes on the fritz as he emerges from the water.
We've also go the first diorama piece to display with our Predator "Lost Tribe" figures-- the Trophy Wall. Now, here it's shown with all the skull "trophies" that NECA has already produced and packed in with various 2-packs and exclusives along with a new, large skull. Will the Wall come with the skulls? Good question. We know that it will come with the large one, but the rest...? That might be up to you to fill them in.
The biggest and coolest reveal for me though was the Kenner styled Predators for Series 10. For those who don't know or don't remember, Kenner had a line of Predator figures back in the early 90's and, in true Kenner fashion, they did all kinds of crazy Predators to fill out the line and to catch kid's imaginations. Here, NECA has re-created three of those figures and they look far, far more awesome than I would have though they'd be.
Check out all the Predator goodness for 2013!
