How it started:

How it's going:

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

Fuck yeah. I love the Neca stuff, but that thing is damn close to a Hot Toys. I’m still not sold on the mask. This may be one I opt out of using the mask on.

Fixed some issues with the figure's head, now it looks as close to perfect as it can be.

I woke up to a couple of gifts today

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

Yeah, Neca stuff is just way too fragile. It will never change though. That’s why I don’t think they’re going to survive the coming toypocalypse.

I miraculously managed to get the bicep joint unstuck without breaking it

Now I can get full enjoyment of this figure

I always try the blow dryer and freezer method. Eventually it gets unstuck.

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

I have the HT City Hunter and I fucking hate the spear. It doesn't fit in the hand and the ends of it sometimes pull out from the handle.

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

First time trying the battle damage look, I didn't think I'd like it that much but I do. This made me want to get the BD version from Neca

Really can't get enough of this figure as it is, repainted is so much better

The Neca figure is good. Still has the typical concerns of all Neca products, but otherwise, it’s a good alternative.

Another reason why I want it is that it is a real upgrade over the original Ultimate, the armor paint of the BD version is a bit more accurate even the sculpt of the mask was upgraded as well
