The figure is the official pilot for their upcoming Blade Fighter Vehicle, and will include blade gauntlets on both forearms, a removable mask, and 2 sets of interchangeable hands.

The Viper Predator and series 12 hits stores later this month. You can see the photos by reading on.

Predator Series 12 Figures Packaged

NECA has released a second packaging image. This photo gives us a look at their Predator Series 12 figures all carded and ready to go. Series 12 should be hitting stores very soon, as they are scheduled to be available before the end of the month. NECA promises a new look at the Viper Predator soon as well. Series 12 Includes:

Also hitting shelves soon the stand-alone Bad Blood Predator. Check out the preview pic after the jump.

NECA Alien Queen Behind The Scenes

NECA tweeted out that they received a new test shot for their upcoming Alien Queen. They wanted to give fans a look, so they shared a photo, which you can see after the jump. We got a chance to check out the Alien Queen at NECA’s SDCC 2014 Booth, and it looked quite impressive.

The Alien Queen will stand over 15″ tall and will be over 30″ long from head-to-tail. This will put the figure in scale with the 7″ figure in the line! The figure will also sport over 30 points of articulation. Included is a display stand and two interchangeable inner mouths.

Science Fiction Mystery Minis 2

Funko has released images of a series of upcoming Science Fiction Mystery Minis. The blind boxed series looks to collect some of the most iconic characters from sci-fi movies throughout history. Included are:

  • Metaluna Mutant
  • Robocop
  • Spock
  • Classic Predator – Standard, Bloody and Translucent
  • ET
  • The Rocketeer
  • Alien Xenomorph – Standard and Metallic
  • Captain Malcolm Reynolds
  • Judge Dredd
  • Robby The Robot
  • Tron – Standard and Glow-In-The-Dark
  • Jayne Cobb
  • Mars Attacks Martian

The Rocketeer and the Martian are the hardest figures to get, coming in at 1/72 chance, while Jayne Cobb is next in line at 1/36 chance. Ah, the joy and frustration of blind boxed items. Look for the figures to hit in September. See the images, including a full rarity breakdown, after the jump.

Classic Planet of the Apes Series 2 and 3 Teaser

NECA decided to sneak in one more #monkeymonday update yesterday. The new preview gives us a look at the prototypes for upcoming Classic Planet of the Apes Series 2 and Series 3 Figures. Included, I believe, is our first look at Julius. We did get to see Zira and Series 2 at NECA’s booth during SDCC 2014.

Also hiding in the pic is a look at a prototype Alien Xenomorph. They’re hdiding it well, but my guess it’s the “Dog” Alien from Alien 3, which we also saw at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Check out the pic after the jump.

NECA Enforcer Predator 006

Predator Series 12 figures should be hitting toy shelves in about a month. NECA is prepping fans for their latest wave with photos of the upcoming figures. Their latest set of images give us a great look at the upcoming Enforcer Predator from Series 12. The character is featured in Dark Horse Comics’ Predator: Bad Blood comic book series. The figure stands at 8″ tall, features 25 points of articulation, and includes a shoulder cannon, a combi-stick and a smart-disc. The Enforcer Predator is scheduled to hit in September with the rest of Predator Series 12.
