Back at San Diego Comic-Con we broke the news that Bandai would be adding Alien Vs. Predator figures to their S.H. MonsterArts lineup, and we brought you the first images of the prototypes they had on display there. This week, the Tamashii Nations website was updated with a feature on these two items with lots of details and photographs to whet our appetites. First up is the Alien Warrior from AvP with an incredible sculpt and a surprising amount of articulation hidden within it including reinforced waist, ankles, and neck joints for posing on two legs or four and with the large head in different positions. Standing approximately 6.7 inches fully erect, this figure has the protruding inner jaw, of course, and translucent plastic is used on the top of its head. The Alien Warrior also comes with an alien egg, chestburster, and two sets of hands.
Hunting down your Alien Warriors is the Wolf Predator from Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem, a fearsome hunter and weapons master. The Wolf figure has PVC components, ABS weapons, flexible "dreadlocks," and even some armor parts in diecast metal! Highly articulated and well-balanced, the 7 inch Predator has nearly unlimited posing potential along with special features like removable helmet, two sets of jaws (one relaxed and one wide open), opening wrist computer, extending wrist blades, and storage options for the weapons. Speaking of which, the figure comes with two different length spears, extended and retracted whips, acid effects, a case of weapons, a tracking device, and more.
We'll post more info on these figures as we get it.
