Yay! I found the new Predators figures at TRU yesterday, but couldn't find an existing Predator thread here & didn't want to crash Gog's Aliens thread, haha.
Anyway, they're $14.99 each, so I only bought the Berserker. He's got great detail & sculpting (I love all the little bright red details,) but putting him in a stable action pose is a bit tricky due to his feet. His boots are each one solid piece & can be rotated mid-shin, but there's no ankle articulation, so if you want both feet planted flat on the ground, you have to either have him in a straight standing position or a kinda bow-legged one.
He also has his shoulder cannon, which pivots up & down, and his wrist blade, which is pretty short & is held in place by a twist tie & doesn't really stay in place one you remove it. The helmet's awesome with the bone jaw attached, most of his dreds are individually sculpted, and his armor is made of soft pvc, so it doesn't hinder poseability at all.
Overall, a really good Predator figure, with just the ankles as a small setback. I'll probably pick up the Falconer with my next TRU $5 coupon.
Some more info from NECA's twitter, and some KICKASS pics of the SDCC booth:
Man, those pictures are awesome!

Just got the classic predator. Wish it had the alternate head like the photos above, but still a freaking amazing figure.
Does anyone know when the 2010 SDCC figures are shipping? I ordered unmasked Eleanor from there and they gave me a notice that they don't have stock or something, any ideas?
The only item from NECA I've ever given half a hoot about (which I bought ASAP):
Yes, the turtles are most excellent.
They are indeed. However, I was only able to get Donatello, since he is my favorite, and it would have been out of my budget to get all 4 when they were still available.
By "available", I mean in stores. I bought Donatello at FYE, the only store in town that carried the NECA Turtles. They were only there for a short while. And since the majority of my TMNT collection consists of Donatellos, I was fine with having only him.
EDIT: Wtf, I managed to use the word "only" in every sentence 0_0
Looks like wave 2 of the Predators figures is set.
Battle Damaged P1 Classics Predator
Unmasked Berserker Pred
really lame you have to buy two figures to get a swapable head..

I think NECA has really stepped up in their game...and the TOY WORLD...The detail put into these figures are stunning!! All series..
^ they look so damn awesome!
oh and believe me they are going to make a lot of predators , including the one from the 1st movie , they also said that they will probably do all lost predatos from P2
from twitter :
@NECA_TOYS What about lost predators friends? I think the P2 is for sure next `11 and you can use the same body onlychange mask and accesory
@hunabku_777 yes & some deco & armor changes. We would try to cover 'em all
Do you guys really want the bird?
the guy who answered:
We die for the bird
I am surprised by this since he has all of 5 secs on screen but if you guys really want a bird we'll try to make it happen"
From Randy himself:
"@Randy7027 sorry but the only human I'm into doing as a figure is Dutch if we get the rights."
did anyone try to take wolf in hands after playing with these new preds?I did. when I took it , it looked so weird..that sculpt,no articulation at the elbows , legs don't have one point of articulation , that these new figures do,those dreads,really skinny body,fat blades compared to these new figures wolf is ....weird
new pics of elder predator:
