NECA Toys Predator Series 15 - Ancient Warrior 03

 

Ancient Warrior is sculpted with some of the parts reused from the highly rated Predator Series 14 Alien vs. Predator 2004 movie figures, and includes newly tooled upper armor on his torso, head sculpt, and trophy necklace. He features a computer on his left forearm, removable double bladed forearm blades, shoulder mounted cannon, blade holster on the right knee, and a clip on his back to hold an accessory. The belt includes some pounches, and tech used for fighting Aliens, that are non-removable. The body armor on his knees, belt, gauntlets, chest, back, and head are sculpted with some very nice detailed texture that we also saw from series 14. Included are extra trophy’s for his necklace, blades for the gauntlets, staff, extended staff, knife, and a Shuriken Blade.

NECA Toys Predator Series 15 - Scar 21

Scar Predator shares the same sculpt with Series 14 Scar, and includes a newly tooled masked head sculpt. Scar includes a newly tooled head sculpt and trophy necklace. He features a 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. The body armor on his knees, belt, gauntlets, chest, back, and head are sculpted with some very nice detailed texture that we also saw from series 14. Included are blades for the gauntlets, staff, knife, a closed fisted and open interchangeable hands, and a Shuriken Blade.

NECA Toys Predator Series 15 - Temple Guard 22

Temple Guard shares the same sculpt with series 15 Ancient Predator and features a newly tooled head sculpt and retooled gauntlets with additional blades. He also features a computer on his left forearm, shoulder mounted cannon, blade holster on the right knee, and a clip on his back to hold an accessory. The body armor on his knees, belt, gauntlets, chest, back, and head are sculpted with some very nice detailed texture that we also saw from series 14. Included are extra trophy’s for his necklace, 3 different sized blades for the gauntlets, staff, extended staff, knife, and a Shuriken Blade.

The Temple Guard is also painted with a rustic deco on his armor, and this certainly gives him a very nice and realistic look.

Overall:

As great and detailed as Series 14 was, Predator Series 15 is right up there with it and we love the new figure sculpts and the additional detail on the deco of Ancient Predator and Temple Guardian didn’t go unnoticed. These are some of the best paint apps ever on a Predator figure, which certainly says a lot.

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 promise that fans of Aliens vs. Predator won’t be disappointed with these!

Highly Recommended.
