The masked Predator (click for larger image)In just over a month Aliens Vs Predator will return to the big screen and hopefully this time we won’t be treated to hot metal HIV covered spikes up the ass. Oh, and there will be kick ass toys too!

The masters of detailed horror action figures, NECA, have added a new beast to their catalog: AVP: Requiem‘s masked Predator! It functions as his life support system and it covers up that not-so-pretty face!

Click here to check out more hi-res images of this figure and make sure you go see AVP:R this Christmas. Nothing quite celebrates the birth of Jesus like an alien bursting out of some innocent child’s chest!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
