One of NECA’s most popular lines over the course of the past year has been its retro, video game-inspired toys, which all started when Jason Voorhees made the transition from 8-bit video game to super cool action figure. Who’s next? Predator is next!
Yesterday the company unveiled the first look at the latest figure in the video game line, inspired by the 1991 Predator 2 game for the Sega Genesis. A special paint deco reproduces the stylized 16-bit look of the character from the end title screen, known as the “City Hunter.”
City Hunter stands 8″ tall, with over 25 points of articulation for great poses, plus staff, disc, skull and spine accessories. Like the other figures in the line, he comes in special window box packaging to re-create the look and feel of the classic video game cartridge box.
Look for this one on toy shelves come May of this year. City Hunter joins a previously released “Jungle Hunter” toy, based on the 1989 Predator game for the NES.
