NECA have released images of the packaging for the Series 18 Predator figures. This wave will include Broken Tusk and Horn Head Predators, along with the first female Predator figure - Machiko
The card design is consistent with the Predator series with Machiko and Broken Tusk being a golden colouring and the artwork is from the 1990s Alien vs Predator comic series. Hornhead gets a steel type finish with artwork from Predator : Life & Death by Dark Horse.
The figures are tentatively expected in late October / early November. UK fans may have to wait a little longer.
NECA's longest running action figure line continues with an entire series dedicated to Dark Horse Comics Predators! Series 18 features three action figure debuts that are some of the most requested by fans: Hornhead, Broken Tusk and the first female Predator, Machiko!
Hornhead made his first appearance in Predator: Life & Death, and is a great companion piece to the Ultimate Ahab Predator, also from the currently running comics. He utilizes the new Ultimate Predator body, and comes with a removable mask and sword accessory that fits in a sheath on his back.
Broken Tusk originates in the classic 1990s Aliens vs Predator comics, and his epic story arc also includes Machiko Noguchi, a human colonist who performs the incredible feat of earning his respect and joining his tribe. Broken Tusk utilizes the new Ultimate Predator body and comes with gun and bladed weapon that measures over 12 inches in length! Machiko has a removable mask, extra interchangeable hands, and rifle accessory.
Neca has paid close attention to detail to make these as accurate to the comics as possible. Hornhead and Broken Tusk stand 8 inches tall while Machiko stands 6.5 inches tall. Each has between 25 to 30 points of articulation and come in blister card packaging.
