Jason Schwab Reports on the Latest Predator Toy Updates From The good folks at Neca!

April 17th, 2011

Hey gang! Our fellow Predhead Jason Schwab has just put together a new update on all things Predator from NECA and has sent me all kinds of goodies to share in another edition of Collector’s Voice!  So without further banter, here’s Jason…


Hello predatorstuff.com! Jason Schwab speaking,  reporting in for Predator Toy Updates From The good folks at Neca.  Neca has released 2 extremely cool series of Predators figures , and they are very cool… the newest update, Neca is releasing series 3 in less than 2 months away and I am extremely excited to see how they will hold up.

Series 3 will have the predator hounds, the classic masked 1987 predator, and old grayback elder predator from predator 2. Neca recently has given us on their twitter image page, the packaging for the new neca predators series 3 figures, and damn, I am speachless.  It’s the coolest packaging I have ever seen!

Neca is in fact also giving us series 4 or aka the predator 2 line since the whole 4th series is Predator 2 friendly.  First, we will be getting the City Hunter, the Gort Predator, and the Boar Predator.  A 2011 comic con exclusive will have the Gort Predator with the 1987 Predator body. But wait, there’s more!  Neca will be giving us in the 4th wave the NECA’s “Lost Tribe” assortments, which will tackle all the Predators as seen at the end of Predator 2.

To see the upcoming packaging , the 3rd series figures, and the upcoming 4th series as well as the 3, count them 3, 18 inch classic 1987 predator figures, check out these links:

    hello predatorstuff.com ,

    an email was sent via this website for my brand new report on the stalker predator bio helmet mask. please check your messages and post that article.

    its a bad ass cool item I hope to obtain.

    from a fellow predhead & your trusty predator news guide,
    Jason Schwab

  2. mangaroca Says:

    Sorry, I must be blind but… how can I order any of those???

  3. Jason Schwab Says:

    to mangaroca

    you can order them at these online stores:
    TOYWIZ
    BIGBADTOYSTORE
    CMDSTORE
    CORNERSTORECOMICS

    or you can search via google. they may also become available at toysrus IF you are lucky enough.

    its not hard to do. however preorder’s mostly start at a certian time and end at a certian time before they can officially have it in.

    I am sure you can find multiple resources to shop online.

    but if you want a chance to obtain series 3 in the time being , go to one of those sites listed above and search alien vs predator. for toywiz it will be under the predators page as well as most stores.

    series 4 is not available yet and a preorder is not yet listed since series 3 has yet to be in stock possibly this month. I preordered mine on the first exact day it was available for preorder so I acted quickly on my [art by keeping up with it since toyfair 2010. I am just a fast person when it comes to this since I am the type of guy who knows what movies are coming out in the next 2 years. been doing that since 2004.

    but yeah , make sure you check those websites listed here.

    hope that helps.

    your welcome,
    Jason

  5. andy Says:

    wow…i love the 18 inches figure. personally i have all of them alrdy. this size sells out like lightning!! Please Neca, make the elder,pred2, and avpr pred in 18 inches too!!! i m sure this will be the most anticipated Neca production will ever be!!

  6. Ryan Says:

    So I wonder where, or why the Elder has the alias of “Golden Angel”. An odd alias for a Predator, no?

  7. Jason Schwab Says:

    To Ryan,

    The Name Goldern Angel Comes From The Predator 2 Comic Book Whe The Elder Fought Along Side With The Pirate Adolini.

    this was a dark horse comic called Predator 1715. A One Shot by Henry Gilroy and Igor Kordey, July 1996. The story of who Raphael Adolini was, and how the Elder Predator at the end of Predator 2 obtained his flintlock pistol.

    It is mentioned that adolini called him the golden angel.

    the comic added as sort of a prequel to Predator 2 to tell the back story of this legendary elder.

    its very interesting and fascinating to say the least. and a highly worthy way to delve into the predator’s back story from such an iconic and briefly seen elder.

  8. Aaron P. Says:

    Dan, where are you buddy? are you working an any new reviews? the natives are growing restless and rioting in the streets have begone… lol

  9. Faken Says:

    Dan has moved on to hopefully greener pastures. My name is Rich and I am new keeper of the flame. I’m still testing out my sea legs and trying to get caught up but never fear, reviews and new stuff will be coming down the pike soon. Keep the faith

  10. Rick R. Says:

    DUDE!!! UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Ryan Says:

    To Jason Schawb,

    Oh, I see. Makes absolutely perfect sense to me now. When I’d first read the alias on the back of the box, I was a bit dumbfounded. By the way, If anyone has not picked up the Elder yet: DO SO! NOW!!

  12. Jason Schwab Says:

    to ryan.

    thank you so very much for your comment.

    and yes , I am getting the elder predator in the mail…tomorrow.

    I wasnt able to get the whole entire set like I originally planned. but at least I got the one I wanted the most. and damn was he awesome in that film.

    I dont care what the fan boys or major public thinks. ALL alien , predator , and avp films are great in their own unique way , and in my honest opinion , and some people may think I may be crazy but I simply dont care , I like predator 2 better than predator & predators. why? because of major key factors.

    1 – the action is fantastic
    2 – no arnold? dont need him. predators did fine and people didnt complain there
    3 – kevin peter hall’s final portrayl as the predator is a major important factor here to his career
    4 – the tribe of the predator and the code of honor gives us much more depth to the character
    5 – the predator effects are a lot better this time around since the effects were not easy to do in the first film
    6 – even a man with a REAL missing arm , can play the predator. yes. a known fact that once the city hunter was delimbed and fell into the building , it’s a different actor in the suit. and the actor , has a real handicap. and you know what? he kicked some major ass
    7 – the spaceship
    8 – the alien skull homage to avp
    9 – the elder predator and the lost hunters in which to me is one of the coolest moments of the franchise …period
    10 – 2 words…predators dancing…I rest my case

    it’s funny how james cameron hated avp but allowed them to trash his own franchise.

    the fan base always tend to be so pathetically picky and they will always find something to complain about. I think it’s the same crowd that wanted to see halloween 2007 the same old thing they have seen too mahy times. a theory I totally agree on jawoosh on from you tube. that man is awesome , but needs to take a breather from yelling at people. this isnt lewis black territory , or avgn , or nostalgia critic. people are just stupid. ok?

    the fan base also seemed to trash sonic the hedgehog over his spikes? and why are they called fans again? why hate a film and just buy the products?

    that’s why I say that not one single film in the history of mankind is 100% bad or 100% good. because not everybody is along with the crowd , and even the most poorly rated films tends to find it’s audience. not every person likes gone with the wind , or the godfather , or star wars. and not all people hate rob zombie’s halloween , or jason goes to hell , or avp / avp-r , or doom. everyone has a taste in films. and not the one thing that I agree on with my younger brother jesse , is that box office gross , doesnt automatically mean good quality.

    but I think the most important thing people has to remember , is that….it’s just a movie. it’s not real. movies are things we as a culture use to escape reality for 2 hours , and be taken to somewhere else to see something that doesnt exist in real life. a chance to be entertained. just like how video games dotn influence bad behavior , movies dont either. it’s not real. it’s fake. but god damn it , I wish they were.

    it’s been a absolute pleasure to be a fan of predator. take care dan of predatorstuff.com. I hope to see this website continue to thrive in good deserved hands.

    and remember , we continue to come for the thrill of the hunt.

    Note – the 2nd attempt at this comment has fixed spelling errors. I am not the most perfect speller , nor am I the most perfect typest. but hey , I tried to fix my mistakes. and at least I was honest about it.
