Jungle Extraction Dutch
Review by tanuki
I`ve never thought of the original Predator as an "Arnie film" as I often do with his back catalogue.
It`s a Predator film, it`s all about the Predator, not Schwarzenegger.
As a child of the 80`s, Predator is a film I grew up with, along with Aliens and Robocop.
NECA have really stepped up their game with the head sculpts on these new releases. The sculpt on Dutch IS Arnold.
For accessories Dutch comes with a machete, a knife, a handgun and an M16 machine gun with underslung grenade launcher.
Dutch's right hand is molded with a trigger finger, he can hold the M16 machine gun with ease but getting the handgun into his hand is difficult.
The grip on the handgun is wider than the M16, so you have to force it into his hand and stretching his fingers.
The left hand is really sculpted to hold the barrel of the M16, its too wide to fit any other accessory, but with the right pose and balance you can get Dutch to hold his knife and machete.
The machete can be held in the right hand, but its not a secure fit.
All the accessories can be stored on the figure, the handgun, machete, and knife all have holsters on the figure's legs.
The M16 has a rubber strap that you can put over the shoulder and fits snuggly on Dutch`s back.
Dutch is in the usual NECA 7 inch scale and scales well with the Aliens wave 1 set (for those of you wanting an AVP mashup)
Articulation is pretty good, you can get quite a lot of great poses and the figure has a great foot base, even able to hold up other figures (see below Jmann).
This figure is one of three Dutch figures released recently, for fans of the Predator film, BUY THEM ALL.
"What are you waiting for? i'm here, kill me!"
Jmann, I have achieved the impossible, the fabled "Triple"
