NECA Recreates Classic Kenner Mail-Away Predator as Convention Exclusive


Remember when action figures based on movies didn’t have to actually look all that much like the movie version, as long as it fit the criteria for what designers assumed kids would play with? Back then, our one and only cloaked Predator action figure was a mail-away, with decidedly non-canonical chrome weapons.

Now, much as they did with the Night Fighter Robocop previously, NECA have taken their movie-accurate sculpt to recreate the less-accurate mail-away, with the con-exclusive Ambush Predator. Action Figure Insider has a fully detailed gallery – it’s missing the goofy clip-on black chestpiece that nobody ever much liked, but the masks and weapons are nostalgia-riffic.

Ambush, you are one beautiful son of a bitch.
