The model maker NECA started making Predator figures in 2010 for the Predators movie.
The company has just released its 100th model; the Alpha Predator.
The Alpha will have a limited initial release, is an original design showing a rather insect-like mask and gear and is a homage to the franchise’s early days.
This time, NECA aren’t making a model based on what appears in a comic book, film or computer game, it’s the other way around. Working with 20th Century Studios and IIIFonic, NECA’s Alpha Predator is a playable class in Predator: Hunting Grounds for the PS4.
Each Alpha box comes with a DLC code that can be redeemed to unlock the alien as a playable class.
Randy Falk, NECA Director of Product Development, said;
We have been working closely with the great team at IllFonic. When the opportunity presented itself to allow for the inclusion of Alpha Predator into the game we jumped at the chance. It’s so gratifying to see our original action figure design come to life as a playable character in the game. The whole NECA studio was elated to see the character model and we cannot wait to play as Alpha this Summer”
