NECA Toys Predator Series 14 – Alien Vs. Predator Scar, Celtic, and Chopper 112

 

NECA brings one of the best Predator series we’ve ever seen with the fourteenth series of their longest running toyline. This series is based on the 2004 live-action film Alien Vs. Predator, and each Predator figure is beautifully sculpted to match the on screen version.

Predator fans will be thrilled to know that the Alien Vs. Predator wave features newly tooled figures of Scar Predator, Celtic Predator, and Chopper Predator. Each figure comes with character-specific gauntlets, armor, weapons, trophies, other accessories, over 30 points of articulation, and they stand at 8-1/4″ tall.

Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Predator series 14 – Alien vs. Predator Scar, Celtic, and Chopper figures for review.

Availability: December 2015

NECA Toys Predator Series 14 – Alien Vs. Predator Scar, Celtic, and Chopper 115

Predator series 14 is based on the 2004 live-action film Alien vs. Predator, a film that fans of both franchises have waited for ever since Dark Horse Comics introduced the idea of facing both races against each other in their graphic novels. All three figures share the same sculpt, which is newly tooled compared to previous waves. Each sculpt features some different and unique parts that we’ll go into more detail in this review. In the film, each character had a more bulkier armor, and since many fans felt that the movie designs were too out of place as these had more armor than the Predator species had previously been shown with. This was to make them more menacing and formidable to take on the Alien Xenomorphs.

To correct this, NECA went ahead and did a bit of downsizing on the armor and bulkiness of the characters from the film. This made them more in line with the rest of their Predator series. Along with the downsizing, this allowed NECA to give each figure more articulation than would have been possible had these featured more armor.

Kicking off this review, we’re going to start with Scar. Scar shares the same sculpt with Celtic and Chopper. Scar includes a newly tooled head sculpt, computer on his left forearm, removable double bladed forearm blades, shoulder cannon, blade holster on his right knee, and a clip on his back to hold an accessory. Also included with Scar is a Shuriken Blade that he cannot store on his body. Some parts are meant to be swappable with Celtic and Chopper, including the shoulder cannon, hands, and other accessories to create some nice customizable options.

Chopper features a newly tooled head sculpt, computer on his left forearm, two human head trophies on sticks, removable forearm blades on both sides that come in three sizes, shoulder cannon, blade holster on his right knee, and a clip on his back to hold an accessory. The smallest blades also attach to the top side of the right forearm. Also included with Chopper is a Shuriken Blade that he cannot store on his body. His hands are closed fisted, and he cannot hold any of his accessories unless you swap out his hands with the other two figures.

Celtic features a newly tooled head sculpt, removable double bladed forearm blades, right forearm blaster sculpted on, shoulder cannon, blade holster on his right knee, and a clip on his back to hold an accessory. Included with Celtic is a staff, blade, and a Shuriken Blade that he cannot store on his body.

Overall:

Predator series 14 is the best figure sculpts that NECA has ever done, and if you are familiar with the line, that is saying a lot. Each figure is superbly detailed and painted to perfection. The joints are nice and sturdy, each figure has a bit of weight to them, accessories and attention to detail is top notch, articulation is excellent, and the armor detail is superb. The countdown timer bomb computers are each sculpted nicely with a hinged panel opening, and the ankle joints can easily hold the figures as these are nice and sturdy.

We hope to see these figure sculpts used again in the future, as these are definitely the best we’ve ever seen.

Highly Recommended.
