NECA 25th ann. Predator – Jungle Hunter Predator
Another great figure in NECA’s Predator line,Jungle Hunter Predator apparently has more articulation than previous versions. I won’t be able to compare the two because i’ve never owned the initial version.Hopefully the pics will be helpful to those who had the first version, in determining how much more articulated this version of Predator is.The one gripe i have with this figure is the shoulder cannon.When attached it hinders the Predators head movement.Not a big deal because it is removable.Enjoy the pics!
Jungle Patrol Dutch – Pt.2
NECA 25th Ann. Predator – Jungle Patrol Dutch
Avid readers of my blog know that i am not a collector of 6 inch + figures.In fact i am a 3 3/4 freak!Their aren’t many plus size figures that grab my attention these days,and if they do,they generally have poor articulation.So there i was scanning the aisles of TRU for something to spend my birthday cash on.Normally i would get a gift or two from the fam but this year i was hit off with a couple of bucks,giving me the green light to pick out whatever i wanted!Initially i was looking for the two-pack 3 3/4 Street Fighter figures but apparently i came late to that party because they were pretty much gone from the shelves, with the exception of a few stragglers/ characters i really wasn’t interested in on sale for 4 bucks.Then i came across this amazing Dutch figure,although when i first spotted it i thought it was John Matrix/Commando.Either way i wasn’t going home without it.I mentioned earlier how i didn’t like the fact that most of these bigger ,highly detailed figures usually lack in the articulation department.Such was not the case with Dutch as he sports 20 points of articulation.There isn’t much to say about these figures that images don’t already convey.This is Arnold Schwartzenegger to a t!Even if you’re not a fan of NECA’s 6 inch figures,i highly recommend this figure,if only for the sake of nostalgia.This figure reminds me of the 80’s Galoob Commando figure- only a gazillion x’s better.Also worth noting is the 16 dollar price tag.That’s about six dollars more than most 3 3/4 figures these days and well worth it when you take into account the quality and nostalgiac vibe of this NECA gem.
