    Helmet for me! Though I have to say at this price point that it would have been nice to have all three heads included. I certainly don't have the dough to throw down on all three versions ($240). Luckily the helmeted look has always been my favorite

    this is great news but i have to agree with earlier poster- for the amount of money, all three heads should have been included. I love NECA but this is getting ridiculous, buying multiple figures that are identical except for one minor change- If I had to pick I would go for the helmeted one, or closed mouth. I love the open mouth but already have that face on my classic pred from predators.

    I don't like this trend, but hey its a free market, they can do what ever they want. But if they are looking for feedback, just give us each head guys-

    EDIT- looks like bigbadtoystore is offering up all three in one deal for $200, so you save $25 doing it that way-

    Well, to be fair, NECA re-uses sculpts from time to time to stretch that tooling dollar, whereas Mattel uses the same mold for YEARS ahemDCUCahem and the price only goes UP. Way to go NECA for keeping costs down on us collectors I say

    ^ TOTALLY! lol

    I do agree, all three heads should be included for the price point. Maybe Hot Toys has spoiled us, but really... 80 bucks should get me at least 2 heads (masked and unmasked).

    I'm leaning towards open mouth, just because my favorite Predator moment ever has always been the roaring bit towards the end of the first one, but that mask is always going to be one of the most bad *** looking and iconic designs in film history. We're getting closed mouth in the Alien/Predator TRU 2 pack, so hopefully I'm fulfilled with having just that one. I really can't buy all three of these. Its not even so much the money as just the ridiculousness of displaying three preds, all the same except for the heads, in what will already be a strikingly stand out piece on my shelves.

    If they can compromise, I'd say give us the two heads, one masked, one not. Maybe make the two unmasked heads randomly packed.
