    NECA Announces PREDATOR Series 12 Lineup Changes

    Bad Blood Becomes Deluxe Figure. Viper Takes His Place...



    NECA has announced on Twitter changes to their upcoming Predator Series 12 action figure lineup. Slated for release this June, Series 12 was originally to consist of Elder Predator 2.0, Enforcer Predator and Bad Blood. NECA will now be releasing Bad Blood separately as a deluxe figure (to be priced under $30, estimated July release). Taking Bad Blood's place in Series 12 will be the Viper Predator (with removeable mask and two extra hands). Viper was originally planned to be included with NECA's first Predator vehicle, the Blade Fighter.

    In other Predator news, NECA reveals that there will be a new Predator figure exclusive offered at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Randy Falk twittered that the exclusive will be comic based and that "someone at Dark Horse revealed a bit last week". Digging back a week or so on Dark Horse's blog brought me to a story on Bleeding Cool talking about Dark Horse's upcoming crossover comic, HERE. I'm guessing the exclusive will either be the masked Predator pictured HERE or the unmasked Predator missing an eye (same Predator?) HERE.


    Predator Series 12:

    • Elder Predator 2.0
    • Enforcer Predator
    • Viper Predator


    Deluxe Predator:

    • Bad Blood


    Deluxe Predator Vehicle:

    • Blade Fighter


    Predator Series 13 (Kenner Wave):

    • Cracked Tusk Predator
    • Renegade Predator
    • Scavage Predator

    Re: NECA Announces PREDATOR Series 12 Lineup Changes

    When it comes to the Predator line, it's always "the more the merrier" for me. If they need to charge a little extra to make Bad Blood properly, then that's what they need to do.

    Those links to the Dark Horse blog don't work for me. But I hope it'll be the unmasked version missing an eye that they make (I love all the unmasked versions cuz they're so pretty ).

    So what is the difference between this Elder 2.0 and the 1.0? I'm thinking balljointed hips and slightly different "dreads". Is that it?

    Thanks for pointing out the dead links... not sure what happened there. They should work now as I embedded the images

    According to NECA: "Elder V2 features additional articulation, a shoulder cannon, new straps and belts, and new feet, all upgraded and improved from the original version."

    I remember them talking about the feet, because back when they released Elder 1.0 NECA was reusing the Jungle Hunter and City Hunter feet on all the figures. Evidently the Elder has different feet than the rest of them. How fans find this stuff out is beyond me. Heck, I didn't think they even showed the Elder's feet in the 5 seconds he was on screen, but I guess it's cool NECA is striving for accuracy.

    Thanks for uploading the extra pics

    Wow I love that gun the human is holding in the comic panels! I wish they could throw it in as some kind of accessory too...
