NECA Alien vs. Predator 2011 Exclusive
It's a brand new year, and what better way to celebrate it than by picking up the lastest two pack of Alien vs. Predator figures from NECA?
This exclusive set is scheduled to arrive in Toys R' Us stores this month. It consists of two figures that were previously released by NECA: the movie-accurate sculpts of the creatures from the first Alien and Predator films. This set is the first time that these two NECA figures can be purchased together, three years after the release of the last big screen AvP monster mash, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.
If you think that this two pack looks like a slimmed-down version of the deluxe two figure box set that McFarlane Toys released back in 2002, you are right. However, what this NECA set lacks in extra accessories (namely, a sculpted base consisting of glowing Alien eggs with removable facehuggers for the McFarlane figures), it more than makes up for in other areas. Both figures have more points of articulation and are more detailed than the McFarlane figures. Furthermore, this set comes with a highly-detailed Alien skull (as seen in the trophy case in Predator 2) and a likewise highly-detailed Predator skull (as seen in Predators).
