NECA Predator Jungle Disguise Dutch Review

Variants are a necessary evil when toy companies want to remain profitable.  There are two types of variants; the cash grab and the necessary or relevent type.  When NECA announced that Dutch Schaefer would be headlining the eighth and ninth series of their popular Predator line I was excited.  This wasn’t the movie figures we are used to, this is an actual action figure fully fitted with articulation and an amazing likeness.  You would think that squeezing out four variations of Arnold from Predator would be stretching it?  I would disagree and then tell you they have an additional two planned for next year.  How does this all come together from my original point?  All of the variants are necessary, and I am very excited for when we get to see the red polo shirt variant at SDCC this year. [editor’s note: this is my speculation stated like a fact, but I have no idea if NECA is actually doing that variant.]

I can’t get enough of the Arnold.  If you can make something really good I will keep on coming back for more.  This is the problem I have with Five Guys; they hooked me in and now my go-to for work lunches is their establishment.  I consider Dutch to be the Five Guys of action figures; he’s the perfect blend of taste, value, and consistency.  Though doesn’t come in a greasy paper bag, he does have the signature Predator series card back and the last two series have really looked fantastic.

NECA Predator Series 9 Jungle Disguise Dutch Review

I’ve reviewed the previous two Dutch variants: Jungle Patrol and Jungle Extraction Dutch.  Both times I considered either of them as one of my figures of the year.  Jungle Disguise Dutch takes it to a whole new level.  In a million years I would have never considered that a mud caked Arnold action figure would become a reality.  Even if it did there was no way it was going to look THIS good.

NECA Predator Series 9 Jungle Disguise Dutch Review

So here we are in 2013, the year that mud-soaked Dutch headlines the ninth series of Predator figures from NECA toys.  Like the previous releases he comes loaded with a ton of screen accurate accessories including a torch, a makeshift bow, arrows, a satchel, and two pikes.  The torch has a really well made translucent fire effect on the top of it.  His articulation scheme also helps to get him into some fun poses with all of his weapons.  Dutch also includes a bow with a (soft rubber) string which is something I have not seen in a while.  The rubber snaps back a bit when you pull it so technically you could fire the arrows, but I’d imagine the material will not last long if you make a habit of it.

Companies like to reuse parts because it saves them money.  I would assume NECA wanted to get the biggest bang for whatever cash they needed to put down to get Arnold’s permission.  Despite the reuse this figure has a pretty nice set of newly sculpted parts.  His entire upper body including the head and upper arms are a brand new sculpt with leaves and various jungle debris built into the mold.  He shares the same lower body, forearms, and hands as the previous releases however these are soaked over in brown.  It’s also worth mentioning that all of his accessories are exclusive to this figure, and there isn’t a single retread from the other three releases.

What else can be said about this guy?  He’s the hit of the series.  All four of the Dutches that have come out are great but this one ranks the highest in my opinion.  It’s a different idea because there is a risk in covering up Arnold Schwarzenegger seeing as how he’s the selling point of the figure.  But NECA pulls it off really well recreating a fairly iconic scene.  I would grab this guy soon as soon as possible because as pictures and word get out this action figure is going to disappear.  So, GO … GO NOW TO AMAZON AND BUY EET!

  1. SOOOON he will be mine! What’s odd is the place I ordered him from was out of the Jungle Encounter Dutch and that one seems to be selling for more on Amazon than old mudface here. Wonder is he’s fewer per case.

    Another odd thing? Seems like all 3 Dutch outfits feature the same vest, even the one that’s sculpted as part of Jungle Extraction’s jacket, but that vest has magic Zartan powers and changes into 3 different colors.

    1. That or maybe he always packs a collection of vests that have wide open backs on all of his special missions. I never even noticed that the Jungle Extraction version had a brown one … that throws my whole “the dark green is a wet version” theory out the window.

      1. Excuse me but it did work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so what problem have you got with me then matey?! cos i’m sick to death of you and Flutterlicious now that i won’t take any more shit from ya!

        1. Flutterlicious

          That’s obviously just BS Laurence, first off, why prank call your friends? And secondly, Domino’s doesn’t call you, you call Domino’s… If your going to prank call or lie and say you did a prank call at least make it sound realistic you dumb ass….

          1. Piss off ya bullshitter and at least i got balls to do this sort of funny and hilarious stuff unlike you who meanwhile will probably be smooching with ya momma!

          2. Yes, Laurence because I love my mother, obviously if you don’t you must be fucked up in the head… what’s wrong with kissing my mother, I don’t kiss her in the way you speak of (the way you kiss yourself at night) And I do have the balls to do such a thing, ask the kids on Garry’s Mod what happened when they hit Alt+ F4 and they disconnect, you probably don’t even know what key command does anyways. Why are you calling me a bull shitter? I’m not the one who is constantly lying just to sound cool, you haven’t even passed 2nd grade because your so stupid, your IQ is so low it can be found on a football jersey

    1. Thank you and at least i’m the intellectual savior of the masses after all i know more things than any of you, also i was gonna make it a point to Jon that he’s forgotten the Hobbit SDCC exclusive news and i had to tell him because he wouldn’t of known or any of you wouldn’t of known otherwise!

        1. Good because now you have the assurance that you will be guided by all this helpful information, ya won’t need Jon anymore!

      1. Flutterlicious

        Yes Laurence, because obviously you’re smarter then us, that’s why you misspell words on majority of your comments and misuse terms… You don’t even know what a face palm is….

        1. No i don’t know what a face palm is and you my boy are a big big bullshitter! and you know nothing about what a queathe is i suppose!?

  2. Flutterlicious just stop okay!!!!!! i’ve had enough of your constant critical judgement of me and secondly i do not approve of what you say as i’m not dumb and i in fact am very good at most lessons in schools with all the teachers quoting ”well done Laurence” or ”excellent Laurence mate!” and apart from that i’m in Yr. 9 and have a good reputation being known as a nice person and popular also secondly the downfall for me at secondary school is that i have always had mad and nasty bullies like Aaron and others teasing me for all the wrong reasons but they’re just jealous and apart from that, they could stop by what i could say about Aaron by the fact is that he would and could of been beaten up by my best friend Finn (Yr.8) but still a pretty cool guy and has all the Nerf and Max Force guns you could think of, and also did the most admirable and brave thing he could do: by standing up to the bully looking him in the eye and telling him to F*CK the hell out of here before he gets angry and just walked away but implied that they would meet again and Aaron wouldn’t be so lucky of walking away with all his bones in his body intact as he pussyed off but has said all these stupid things via YouTube and hasn’t stepped toe to toe with us like a man, also he hasn’t come and faced us in the fights he keeps challenging us to as he keeps setting back the dates but the fact is it’s a psychological mind game that all bullies play with the vulnerable and weak to torment them further and provoke the situation. I also think that Finn did something that no one would and could of done is by saying to him well you know that fight you want next weekend in the basketball courts, well you got it as i have made the stipulation for it and it is perfect for consideration that Finn will beat the crap out of Aaron and also do him a favor by sealing his mouth and his fate as no man or boy has even dared to face Aaron either at school or home because the whole community is set to be silenced and bow down to it’s conqueror, well you’re not my boss neither have you won this battle as i will do what no one has even considered the best answer of resolving this and the fact is we all know Jon and the others on this very website are all corrupt but also siding with you as you Americans have always had deep contempt for us. But now we will see who wins this battle now and you will never rule over me and i will win eventually so take this piece of information and advice and piss off back to USA and stay there!

    1. Flutterlicious

      And this is a good reason on why I shall continue, do you really thing we give a flying fuck about what you and your butt buddies do? No, this is a fucking toy website not a forum for riders of the short bus like yourself… Do you really think I want to waste hours on a plane just to beat up a little kid? No, you and your butt buddies aren’t worth the waste of money and time. Sure Year 9, that’s why you have the vocabulary problems of a 4th grader, it must be the reason your teachers tell you “good job”, in Year 9 teachers are possibly the most strict… I’m pretty sure they only say stuff like that is because your retarded. If you hate Americans so much, why are you still on this site? Just leave already kid…. Your not even worth the text or data I’ve used to make you suffer the consequences of messing with me, now get off this site you handicapped, mentally retarded piece of shit

      1. No you F*CK off you’re the turd-burglar round here, you’re the bullshitter, you’re the handicapped retard, you’re the piece of shit and you’re a f*cking american scumbag, we do not care what you think! F*ck off alright you got that ha?! as i have had it up to here, f*ck off, f*ck off, and finally just f*ck off out of here we don’t even care what you think you little bullshitter round here, i hate your guts and you have finally made me angry you little cunt! come on you want a fight aye!? well come on and get one you lousy piece of shit, come on or f*ck off i said, we don’t even care about your opinions, anyway you’re just a worthless piece of nothing. Come on you little motherf*cker and lets fight like men or you too chicken for that you little pussy, come on you little cunt face me ha!? come on!!!!!!!!!! face me you little piece of shit cos i’m ready for you and no i’m not Laurence but i’m his friend Ryan speaking on his behalf as he is in bed unwell!

          1. Why not? is this because you approve of how i have finally stuck up to Flutterlicious on behalf of my friend and made him shut his mouth for once?

        1. Flutterlicious

          Was that an attempt to intimidate and or make me feel bad? Ever heard of the term “don’t feed the troll”? Of course you haven’t , your too mentally impaired to understand. I honestly think Jon doesn’t approve of what you just said Laurence, you’ve been bashing on Americans for quite some time, and not to forget the fact that you told Dr.Rampageo that he won’t need Jon … he’s bullshitting you (nothing your used to, your the master of bullshit “mate” ) that whole thing you just posted was a pussy’s way of trying to show he’s top dog…. Not going to work on me…. There’s enough censored fucks it’s about as much fucks I don’t give about what you just said, that’d never make me “shut my mouth” I was in Mexico all this morning….. Not able to check anything due to Roaming Data an such…. Your words will never make me shut my mouth (the jokes on you… I don’t use my mouth to type dumbass! ) oh, and I don’t steal turds, it must be your hobby if you try and pin it on me….

          1. Oh fuck off and shut up will ya cos i’ve fucking had enough now you silly little dumb fucking pussy!

          2. Flutterlicious

            Oh, you’ve finally had enough? Do you really think I’d stop just because you’ve “had it up to here”? This is a website, I can’t fucking tell how much you’ve had, oh you said fuck in all caps? You must be butthurt, either because of me or one of your butt buddies did it…

    1. Flutterlicious

      Eww… Did you just post that or is this a nightmare? I’d never be friends with an ankle biting, turd stealing, cock sucking little faggot like you, not in a million years, if there was a gun pointed to my head and someone told me to be friends with a fucktard like you I’d tell them “how fast is that trigger?” Besides, you said you’d be ignoring everything I post from now on, going back on your word already “mate”? Nothing unusual about that “mate” now “stick it sunshine”

      1. Oh fuck off will ya if ya don’t wanna be friends with me then here’s the deal then you ignore me and i ignore you! is that fair deal?

    2. Flutterlicious

      Check you’re Twitter Laurence, I’ll have you know that none of that is BS… If you want to call me a bullshitter afterwards….fine… Go ahead, you’ll also be happy to see your first follower 😛 I have a plan for you Laurence, I’ll talk about it later

  3. But i just thought because you were adults, you would tease less and be mature and act civilly towards me but i think that i was wrong but at least Jon can you try and be influential on them and persuade them to give me another chance and us all be friends. Of course i have been a bit rude, a bit serious, a bit badly behaved (in fact a lot of bad behavior), but of course none of this makes me a bad person just cos i have made the wrong mistakes and have made all my behavior impact on you and i’m sorry as i didn’t realize spamming or unrelated messaging was a crime and can i in any way make up for it?

  4. I hate americunts you’re all a bunch of pussies who can’t win a war without Britain’s help and you cowered on the other side of the atlantic for most of ww2 while we did all the fighting, and when you finally turned up you were STILL pussies and cowards(D-day) then you cunts have the nerve to claim you WON ww2? ROFLMAO! get the fuck out of here you brain damaged trailer park dwelling sub human pieces of shit haha, i hope a plane flies into one of your shitty, cunting buildings or a hurricane destroys your wooden shacks again haha CUNTS! Oh and we still kicked the shit out of you americunt faggots in the war of independence which you thick, fat bastards like to harp on about all the time, we burned the whitehouse to a crisp and you pussies ran away with your tails between your legs like typical cowards, so in short BRITAIN won your faggoty irrelevant “war” aswell and you LOST, how’s it feel to NEVER have beaten Britain at anything EVER ameriscum? LOL! Besides america was one of the shit colonies we didn’t want, Why would we want that shithole when we owned the rest of the world? LMAO! Take your nasally, whiney, girly sounding queer american voices and your awful grammar and spelling and go and

    FUCK YOURSELVES AMERICUNTS HAHA

    P.S China owns your arses lmfao

    1. That was honestly not me who made that awful vulgar comment, man whoever did though don’t do that as i respect Americans now anyway! and Jon i’m friends with you and Flutterlicious anyway now so i would never dream of it. Guys that other guy was just joking around but being nasty as well.

  5. Also i don’t take kindly to that guy talking to us like that so what i have got is a plan and you guys can help if you choose as Jon knows and recognizes the email addresses and Flutterlicious can just generally tell who is who judging on grammar and punctuation so obviously i would not write or type like the way of that Japanese or Chinese foreign version of myself.
