SH MonsterArts Predator Wolf Heavy Armament Version 004

Bluefin Tamashii Nations has updated with a bit more info on the S.H. Monsterarts Wolf Predator we reported on a few days ago. Looks like this is a variant version. The full figure name is S.H. MonsterArts Predator Wolf Heavy Armament Version. It is due in September for $64.99. Here’s more from Tamashii Nations:

S.H.MonsterArts continues its aim to be the number one series of high quality monster action figures on the market today with the newest addition coming straight from Alien vs. Predator: Requiem- the Predator Wolf (Heavy Armed Ver.)! This deluxe figure is only available as a web exclusive in Japan, but comes to North American shores as a regular release thanks to Bluefin Distribution. Faithfully proportioned as it appeared in the film, the set portrays the character after he picks up additional tools from the crashed ship in the movie. Tamashii Nations’ creative team has made use of both resin and diecast materials for the very best results in quality while perfectly maintaining the realism seen on screen. This version of the character contains extra tools, such as claymores with removable holsters and two shurikens. Special interchangeable hands for use with the shuriken have also been included for replicating specific scenes from the movie. Additionally, this version of the Predator Wolf will feature two plasma cannons, a big cannon, and alternative parts in order to depict the cannon after being broken. Both short and long spears, as well as coiled and uncoiled whip parts are also featured, in addition to interchangeable heads and a full array of interchangeable hands. In the world of AVP, there’s no hunter better equipped.

We last saw the figure at the Tamashii Nations Toy Fair 2014 Booth.

S.H. MonsterArts Alien Warrior

Bandai has started producing FiguArts and MonsterArts figures beyond those with a Japanese twist, grabbing licenses such as DC’s Injustice, Super Mario Brothers, music acts like Daft Punk, and what we have here – Aliens Vs. Predator. Their Alien Warrior is one more Xenomorph figure from multiple companies putting out characters from the Alien franchise and we wanted to see what the Bandai treatment would do for it.

The figure features a large amount of articulation, especially in the tail which is impressive. The paint applications are top notch, using multiple levels of blacks and greys to present a 3d look and really bring out the mold details. Additional hands and a stand, commonplace with most S.H. offerings are present and welcome. The Alien Egg and Chestburster accessories are bonus and a nice capper to an overall solid figure. Standing 5/6 inches tall, he will work on your shelves if you feel like mixing him up with some more traditional super hero figures.

NECA Series 1 Scalers 073

The NECA Scalers are a series of licensed characters that can bed attached to any type of round power cord. The packaging evokes the look of an iPhone, so they’re not exactly being subtle with the market they’re trying to hit. When NECA first announced Scalers, I wasn’t too sure what to make of them. After getting them in hand, and messing with them, I’m a bit more on board with what they are doing. The series includes the following:

  • Predator – Classic Predator
  • Alien – Xenomorph
  • Friday the 13th – Jason Voorhees
  • Nightmare on Elm Street – Freddy Krueger
  • Gremlins – Gizmo
  • The Hobbit – Golum

Rad on to check out over 75 photos as well as some quick thoughts on the series. The figures were provided by site sponsor Entertainment Earth.
