Got this figure from cornerstone comics from Ebay, I ordered it online since it will probably take several months for any local stores to get them.
NECA is really coming through with their newer figures now. I remember a few years back, 4 out of the 5 figures I get from them will either break right out of the box or is missing some parts. The problem I was most scared with NECA figures is the paint on the joints, they make the joints get stuck and any attempt to move the joints will result in it snapping right off. But so far, all the recent figures I got from NECA were really good in quality control. There were no paint on joints and the joints moved smoothly out of the box which is a big relief.
I've wanted this figure ever since I saw the announcement, what's better than a Predator? A Samurai Predator!
Other than the regular open palm hands, NECA surprised me by including a pair of extra hands to hold the samurai swords. Unfortunately the swords that came with the figure were slim and wimpy, they look more like chopsticks than swords.
I borrowed the sword from the Headmaster Transformers Bludgeon upgrade kit for this shot, this sword looks muuuuch better than the stock chopsticks.
And then for something more extreme...a Dr.Wu diecast sword haha
By the way, the reason I am pumping out pics like crazy is because my hard drive on my main computer died so I don't have the regular distractions (games) that normally wastes my time on. I am currently using a dinky 7" netbook that can barely play Youtube videos so when's a better time to play with my toys right? In fact, without gaming, I feel like I have much more time on my hands as well. It feels as if time passes much slower LOL
