NECA 25th ann. Predator – Jungle Hunter Predator

RSCN8451

RSCN8454Another 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!

G.I. Joe Retaliation-Snake Eyes(ninja duel) loose

Again with the Snake Eyes?!Yep,we got another one.And he’s pretty cool,too!No other single carded figure gets me more excited than Snake Eyes.I think the fact that he was so hard to find as a kid contributes to that.Although the first Retaliation release was pretty damn cool,so is this version.This movie accurate,more futuristic take on G.I. Joe’s ninja/commando ¬†is definitely not your daddy’s Snake Eyes.Let’s start with the head sculpt, which seems to be more of a protective helmet,but works really well with this figure.Snake Eyes dons a slick computerized armor this time around with ¬†predator like gauntlets on both forearms.The detailed/chiseled chest-plate looks great,too.The holster around his waist add to the commando vibe on this figure and holds one of his throwing knives and a small handgun.The sheath looks real nice but only holds one sword.Oh and speaking of accessories.Hasbro finally did away with the multi-colored weapons and opted for ¬†a more realistic look this time around and really did a great job on them.I would definitely put this version of Snake Eyes on my top 5 list,and that’s saying alot considering how many Snake eyes figures have been released throughout the years.I’ll have to do a top 5 Snake Eyes post sometime.Enjoy the pics!

G.I. Joe Retaliation-Snake Eyes (ninja duel)

I know i wasn’t supposed to pick up any more modern figures,strictly focusing on vintage,but Snake Eyes is a must buy almost every time.My girlfriend got this one for me as a reward for all the hard work i’ve been doing around the house so a very special thank you goes out to her,Love ya!If i don’t get any loose pics up tonight,i will definitely by tomorrow.I took some close up shots of the rest of the line that’s out now.I must have overlooked that mask-less Firefly at the store today.He looks pretty cool too.
