TRU Alien vs Predaator Exclusive 063

As I mentioned in my review of the upcoming Commando John Matrix Figure, the Toyark crew recently visited he amazing studio of NECA Toys. They were kind enough to share a few items for first looks. Our latest is the Alien vs Predator Exclusive 7″ Scale 2-Pack, which is an homage to a 1994 Kenner release featuring the same figures. The package include a Renegade Predator and a Warrior Alien. Both are repainted to pay homage to the colors of the original Kenner release. Also included is a reprint of the original comic that features both characters. The set is Available For Pre-Order on Toysrus.com at a price of $43.99. The set is scheduled for release in October. Details from Toys “R” Us:

This special edition action figure 2-pack is a loving recreation of this classic pairing from the 1994 Kenner toy line. It includes Renegade Predator with rifle, bladed weapon, and interchangeable masked and unmasked heads. He is painted in an all-new color scheme with brown armor, faithful to the original Kenner release. The Alien uses the 1979 “Big Chap” body with a glossy black dome and darker black decoration, again faithful to the original Kenner version. Each 7″ scale figure features over 25 points of articulation! BONUS – also includes a special reproduction of the original Dark Horse mini comic book, just like the original Kenner release.

NECA Ambush Predator 041

Back when Kenner was producing Predator figures, they offered a cool mail-away exclusive figure. That was the Ambush Predator. It was cast in clear plastic with black paint around the eyes, while the eyes were bright green. The figure included body armor, a chromed mask and two massive arm blade weapons. After 22 years, NECA has recreated the Ambush Predator figure, which fits in fantastically with their Predator Series 13, Kenner inspired, figures. The figure, which reuses their excellent Viper Predator mold, includes two masks and new blade weapons inspired by the original figure.

The Ambush Predator was available as part of their Summer Exclusives during San Diego Comic-Con 2015. NECA sent one along and we have a full high resolution gallery and review. Read on to check it out.
