The final San Diego Comic Con 2019 Exclusive Reveal by NECA is a 2nd DC / Dark Horse themed set, this time with Batman taking on The Predator. These figures had been first shown at the 2017 New York Toy Fair, but had been plagued with licencing issues and NECA have been limited to a small release as a convention exclusive.
The set is based on the 1991 comic mini-series from DC and Dark Horse and includes a brand new 7 inch comic book armoured Batman figure. Batman comes with a soft goods cape and is armed for Predator hunting with a gun and a baseball bat. The Predator is a previously unreleased version, but does include re-used parts. He includes two head options, backpack, wrist blades and a spear.
As with all of NECA's SDCC 2019 exclusives a pre-order system will be in place across June 5th through 7th, with limited amounts of all exclusives up for pre-order each day for delivery after SDCC 2019. This is restricted to US collectors only and for this set it has to be purchased as a package with the Superman vs Alien set for $120. A small quantity will then be on sale at the NECA booth at SDCC where fans can purchase sets separately. For UK and Worldwide collectors, the only avenue will be hitting up the secondary market.
