NECA News time! We got some Predator reveals as well as some new information on Prometheus, Batman stuff, Bioshock oldies finally coming out, and Man of Steel … we got it all!
At first they said it wouldn’t happen because the Predator Trophy Skull Case diorama was supposed to be a reward for the fans who have been there since day one. If you want to see what figures you originally would have had to obtain to complete the skull collection head over to our checklist here. Well it looks like they rethought that strategy and will be offering a skull pack with all ten skulls included.
I do hope this doesn’t hurt the sales of the series nine’s water uncloaking deco Predator, I find him to be quite cool.
As we all know the third Prometheus series has bounced both Fifield and Shaw out of the way for two new Engineers. I’d heard people throwing the “Holographic” version around so I asked Randy at NECA and it looks like the variants are still undecided. I did get a “possibly” response on it. Though I’m trying to think of what else they could do with that Engineer body. I’m sure they will put something cool together.
Our favorite (not so favorite) character from the film who was bumped from series two, Halloway, may find a spot with NECA’s SDCC esclusive lineup. The idea was put out there but is not confirmed yet, I guess they are doing the logistics work on that one. If this all lines up, that would be great to get one more human, even if he is the single least likable on the ship. Regardless, more Prometheus is always good!
Bioshock fans … not Infinite fans, the people who liked the previous two games. Remember those Splicers that never got made? Well looks like they are coming out! Details coming soon …
NECA’s first SDCC exclusive has been revealed! We get our second Predator from the Dead End fan-film: Albino. I’d previously thought they might include a trophy skull with this release, but that is not the case. No accessories and no skull included. This was first revealed over at ActionFigureInsider, so give those guys some love.
The SDCC 2013 Exclusive checklist has been updated with the Albino. NECA should be showing off another exclusive this week. Keep your eyes and ears open! Maybe not ears, no one is shouting these things out … but you get the point!
Remember that Adam West 18″ Batman NECA has at Toy Fair 2013? Well they have added articulation and multiple hands to make a pretty impressive figure for Bat-Fans. Also worth mentioning how cool their desks are over there, just littered with toys and a ROBIN HEAD.
Oh and a last minute edition, 18″ Man of Steel prototype:
That’s all I got for now, catch you later!
