NECA's first wave of Predators action figures have just been released but already big plans are in place for 2010 and beyond. Following the Classic Predator, Falconer and Berserker (masked) will be Predators Series 2. Slated to hit retail this October, this assortment will include Unmasked Berserker (head pictured HERE), Tracker (pictured above) and a new Classic Predator with battle damaged mask (mask picture HERE). An exciting announcement was that the Predator Hounds (pictured top) will see release this November solo packed or as a possible 2-pack. NECA is working on a surprise for the Falconer as well.
Another cool reveal was that an Alien vs. Predator "Classic" 2-pack will see release later this year as a Toys"R"Us exclusive. The original versus original figure set will star Giger's 1979 Alien with a redecoed head dome (to be more foggy) and jaw (more closed) and the 1987 Predator unmasked with closed mandibles (painted prototype of the headsculpt above). Most exciting is that this set will include several Trophy Skulls as seen at the end of Predator 2 (Alien and Predator skulls in pic HERE. Other bones are just for display).
2011 will see even more Predators. Fans can expect a 1987 Masked Predator, Elder Predator from Predator 2 and a very cool Camo Stealth Berserker (pictured above). The latter is reminiscent of NECA's SDCC Exclusive Half-Stealth Wolf Predator but designed to blend in with its surroundings; specifically the tree lined background. NECA isn't sure if they will be able to release the tree display base with the figure due to costs, but a photo backdrop will be included if that is the case.
