It's more colorful but in a subtle way, you may not even notice until you look close or compare it to how it was. I'm glad I managed to even out the shoulder pieces, the one that looks like a wing was way darker than it should be, same with the mask and the chest area, but now it looks the way HT should have painted it
I guess it’s better than funko pops, but I’d rather get herpes. Are you getting the Mezco Jungle Hunter? That thing looks incredible. I don’t even collect Mezco shit, outside of the two Hellboy figures.
It looks way too good to be 1/12 scale, it's a bit crazy that it has a light up effect on both the plasmacaster and the helmet. But I gotta see how the final product turns out, it definitely looks higher quality than anything Neca has released
While I love these and I'm glad to have them my opinion on Neca got even lower than it already was, and I didn't think that was even possible.
First of all, the alien was a pain to handle at first, I had to put warm water in every single joint of this motherfucker to unstuck them. I had to dip it in water until the paint of the joints fell off and when that happened it worked just fine. Good thing I saw a couple of reviews and witnessed how fragile this shit can be, I think there's a least 3 or 4 reviews of the dog alien where the guys just break the joints with barely any force applied
But the predator is even worse, most of the joints are fine except for his left bicep, no matter how much warm water I applied it's stuck and it'll always be stuck unless I break it and replace it with a screw, oh and I have to fix the wrist gauntlet obviously, everybody says it breaks and yes it does, I didn't even touch the left arm but the panel fell off on its own
Anyhow. I like them, I'm glad to have them, they are trash
The shoulder armor fell off when I was trying to heat it up because it's right there on the outer part of the arm, blow dryer is too... external I guess. The only way was to put a few drops or near boiling water right in the crease of the joint and that is what worked, it's annoying but other than that it really isn't a big deal
It really is my favorite predator weapon now but the tips feel as fragile as a toothpick. I think I'm not gonna bother even touching it ever again if I can
As much as I love that figure you can really tell they cut corners with it and took it too far, why couldn't they give him open palms to make the most iconic predator pose? they made those hands for Shadow and Elder they'd just have to repaint them, and I don't wanna get started about the paint in general, I couldn't stand his brown shit armor when I got him. Their decision making with these figures was extremely retarded
