The City Hunter Returns
Just yesterday NECA revealed the Predator reveal for SDCC. This figure of the City Hunter Predator from Predator 2 from a very specific scene when the Predator is standing atop a skyscraper and gets struck by lightning.
This figure is very similar to the Water Emergence Jungle Hunter Predator that NECA released in the Predator line a number of years ago, I personally have that figure and it’s one of my favourite pieces in my collection. This figure is very similar in it’s paint scheme and I would love to add this one to my collection.
The paint deco is fantastic and the translucent parts look great too. I also really love how they’ve carried over the effect to most of the City Hunter’s accessories. I really love the look of the smart disc.
The packaging looks great too and I love the light up effect that’s a great touch!
I should add that this figure will be available at Walmart in the States too. What’s also great about this figure is that it’s affordable and will be available internationally from the NECA store later this month! If the import duty and shipping isn’t too expensive I would definitely consider getting this release!
Here’s the official press release from NECA:
