After seeing the pictures from this year's Toy Fair, I realized that I couldn't have been more wrong. Even though they aren't part of the true Predator cannon (which is what I prefer to collect), there is just no denying that these figures are a kick-ass, awesome sight to behold! And now I find myself looking forward to the wave more than any other recent Predator waves.
Despite the fact that these are nothing but full-on artistic interpretation, they showcase NECA's brilliant toy-making skills perhaps more than when they recreate a character that we've already seen before. (Which they also do a brilliantly!)
Supposedly their plan is to release one "Kenner inspired" wave of Predator figures every year. Personally, I'd love to see them a lot more often than that!
These should be out in August.
