Superman vs Aliens and Batman vs Predator Action Figures

It’s crazy to think that there’s more than one Alien vs Predator movie out there. But did you know that the Predator and the Xenomorph faced even deadlier enemies in comic books?

Back in 1991, Dark Horse and DC Comics teamed up to have the deadly Predator face-off with the Caped Crusader himself in Batman vs Predator. Then, just a few years later, Superman came face-to-face with a Xenomoprh warrior in Superman vs Aliens. The results were two unbelievable comic book match-ups with epic action, and now they’re getting their own action figure two-packs from NECA that will be available as San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusives.

Check out the Superman vs Aliens and Batman vs Predator action figures below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

James Cameron Action Figure

When it comes to action figures inspired by fan favorite movies of the 1980s, the toy manufacturer NECA has been knocking it out of the park. They especially deserve praise for their spectacular line of toys based on both Ridley Scott’s original 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, and their more recent ongoing line of figures inspired by James Cameron‘s more blockbuster style follow-up Aliens. But now they’re bringing a figure to shelves that no one expected.

Aliens director James Cameron will be getting his own action figure from NECA this fall, but it’s not quite as cool as I hoped it would be. You’ll see what I mean when you check out the photos of the James Cameron action figure below. Read More »
