NECA unveiled their final SDCC ’14 exclusive figure today, and it’s a Predator named Ahab!!!!!!
This guy will be featured in a new Dark Horse comic series, Fire and Stone, debuting in October.
The story description of this new Predator: In his prime, Ahab took deadly trophies from countless worlds, his scars a proud record of glorious battle. Now an elder of his tribe, he leaves small game to the next generation as he looks to his final hunt. Following a lifelong obsession, Ahab searches for a creature more formidable than any Predator has ever faced before.
Hmmmmm, seems oddly familiar? I can’t wait for the Ishmael Predator!
Only 5000 of these will be available worldwide at a price of $30. Ahab features a removable backpack, removable mask and a spear staff weapon.
NECA also showed of the first final production shots of the 12″ (24″ Head-to-Tail) Godzilla figure from the new film. The 6″ (12″ Head-to-Tail) is already in stores and his big brother version ships in July. I’m waiting to see both in the wild first before deciding which one to get. I just feel the larger scale will show off the sculpting better. The paint looks more vibrant on the 12″ figure too. Plus the larger features that famous Godzilla roar. Check the specs below:
- 12″ tall and 24″ from head to tail
- Features authentic roar sound effect
- Over 25 points of articulation
- Bendable tail
I kind of wish the tail was articulated like the smaller version. I’m a little nervous about bendy parts on toys. I always worry about wear and tear when positioning. The price point on the King of the Monsters is expected to be between $50 and $60 when it arrives later this summer.
