TOY TEASE: NECA Toys' NES Classic Video Game Appearance Predator

NECA Toys will be adding the original Predator to their Classic Video Game Appearance series. This version of the classic Jungle Hunter Predator is based on the 1989 NES video game. The Predator will be the fourth figure to get this treatment following other iconic characters Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th), Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm St.) and RoboCop. Below is an image of what we can expect.

NECA’s Jungle Hunter Predator (1989 Video Game Appearance) is a fully articulated 8-inch tall figure with extendable wrist blades, removable backpack, and over 20 points of articulation. The Predator is painted in shades of blue with black and a hint of cel shading.

This figure comes in special window box packaging with opening flap to re-create the look and feel of the classic 1989 video game packaging.

In my last video, I mentioned how much of a fan I am of NECA Toys, especially their Predator figures. This one will certainly have a place in my collection. They also released an updated visual guide for the Predator line. Check it out below.

Come May, the hunter becomes the hunted as collectors stalk toy jungles in search of this limited run item. For updates, visit NECA Toys.
