The next SDCC 2018 exclusive has been announced by NECA, and it is the bitter-sweet confirmation of a 7" scale Predator Hawkins figure, as played by Shane Black in the original movie.
This finally gives us another Human character from the original movies, besides Arnie. But the flip-side is that this is a strictly limited US release for SDCC 2018. There will be 3000 units only, with the set sold at SDCC or via a pre-order to US collectors via NECA store.
Based on the Q+A and info tweeted by NECA, there is no option for anyone outside of the US getting hold of this. The best hope would be a potential re-use in a 2-pack or similar in the future like Aliens Newt from 2016.
The pack will use the 35th anniversary packaging, and be the last one in this line which included 7 boxed figures through 2017 - again including an SDCC Dutch exclusive. Hawkins will come with machine gun pistol and knife.
