NECA Is Back With More Of Your Favorites

First up we have new info and images for the NECA Ultimate Alpha Predator! This is a special ‘100th Edition’ figure, marking the monumentous 100th figure created for the (obviously) long-running 7″ scale ‘Predator’ toyline.

Predator – 7″ Scale Action Figure – Ultimate Alpha Predator 100th Edition Figure

To commemorate the release of over 100 different Predator figures comes the very first original design and concept by NECA, the Alpha Predator!

In place of the traditional tech, gadgets, and armor worn by other yautja, the Alpha’s attire takes on a more insect-like appearance; a subtle homage to the original 1987 Predator design. Standing at 8” tall with over 30 points of articulation, the Ultimate Alpha Predator is an entirely new sculpt kitted out with an array of accessories including a removable mask, hook, gauntlets, and 3 pairs of interchangeable hands. Classic Predator weapons such as the wrist blades, staff, and shuriken, have been reimagined to fit his unique theme.

Deluxe Ultimate Packaging with new artwork by Jason Edmiston and an original origin story!

Next up is a very pleasant surprise, with the new Ultimate Flasher Gremlin! This figure was initially offered as part of (an unfortunately failed) crowdfunding attempt for a new Gremlin that was loaded with special accessories!

Thankfully for those who were disappointed that the crowdfunding campaign did not reach its goals, NECA has managed to release this figure anyway along with the majority of the originally planned accessories (the only ones not included from the original offer are those for the ‘Flashdance’ outfit). Aside from the removable trench coat, the new Ultimate Flasher Gremlin comes packaged with sunglasses, a cigarette, a visor, playing cards, poker chips, a bowtie, a fedora, a mallet, and a puppet! Pretty much everything you would need to build your very own Dorry’s Tavern for your display! The new Ultimate Flasher Gremlin is due to release this May for around $39.99. Check out info and images from NECA below.

Flasher Gremlin Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure

Any fan of Gremlins knows the 3 simple rules: keep them out of sunlight, don’t get them wet, and never feed them after midnight. Break them and you may find yourself having to cancel Christmas dinner.

Based off of the Dorry’s Tavern scene in Gremlins, the Flasher Gremlin comes equipped with a removable fabric trench coat. Not only that, he is super loaded with new accessories, including a poker visor, poker chips, mallet, puppet, fedora, bowtie, and more, allowing you to recreate the looks of other Gremlins from the film!

Batman (1989) One:12 Collective Figure

“I want you to do me a favor. I want you to tell all your friends about me.”

Based on Tim Burton’s Academy Award winning film “Batman”, the Caped Crusader joins the One:12 Collective.

The One:12 Collective Batman – 1989 Edition features an all-new seamless body designed with an internal skeleton armature that is durable yet highly posable. Included are three cowled head portraits – one with movable eyes, achieving a new level of realism for the One:12 Collective.

Batman is outfitted in his iconic Batsuit from the film which features advanced body armor – strong enough to deflect bullets and break fists. A magnet in his collar allows him to switch between two leather-like capes – one with an integrated posing wire and one that drapes freely. The bat insignia sits front and center as a reminder to those that cross his path.

The dark vigilante comes prepared to protect Gotham City with a vast array of film accessories, as well as some unused designs, including: a gauntlet that attaches to his forearm and rotates open, a speargun that attaches to his utility belt via a magnet, multiple batarangs, and a time bomb.

After witnessing the senseless murder of his parents at the hands of a criminal, Bruce Wayne becomes Batman to rid Gotham City of crime and corruption.
