Last week, NECA updated their official Twitter account with an advanced look at the cardback and bio for the upcoming Ghost Predator. Now, they have followed suit this week with a look at another Kenner inspired Yautja - the rogue Spike Tail Predator.
Check it out in full below...
The leader of the Rogue Space Tribe, Spiked Tail is allied with the Armored Lost and Lasershot Predators. Spiked Tail’s unorthodox hunting methods and use of illegal weapons caused the exile of his team from Yautja Prime. Using stolen time/space technology, the Space Tribe can travel much farther in the galaxy than most Yautja. This has allowed them to advance past hunting organic beings: they find non-organic mechanical beings to be more challenging prey and have modified their gear accordingly. Spiked Tail’s age is assumed to be considerable, thus many suspect that the robotic trophies he claims for ornamentation are actually physical enhancements necessary to keep him in capable condition. In addition to hunting robotic life, a mysterious rival Yautja ,the pirate called R’Zor, has threatened several Space Tribe missions and thus he has also become a target.
Another excellent write-up! However, one can't help but wonder if NECA will eventually be giving fans a R'Zor figure - which was a figure Kenner planned, but never produced, back in the 1990's.
One can only hope.
Look for the Spike Tail Predator to arrive, along with the rest of Series 16, at retail this Fall.
