I arguably didn't need the Predator (Invisible) ReAction Figure. There are numerous versions of the mold - at this point, at least seven - one of which is a clear figure with some green splatter on it. They're all neat for different reasons, and of them all this one is probably the least fancy. Being molded in one color tends to suck out some of the detail, but it does play up the whole "stealth" angle and calls back to the Ambush Predator mail-away figure in the 1990s.
Like most of these figures, this version uses the "masked" mold. This is true to the movie, as he kept on his mask most of the time and especially when he was hunting while invisible. The armor, skin, and various textures blend in together to give you a sense of the figure's form, but not the finer points of the sculpted detail. You can also get a peek at his innards, including the pegs that help keep him together. I don't think this was so much intentional, but from the perspective of seeing inside a figure without breaking it I do appreciate a look at his internals.
As with the others, you get five points of articulation with an obstructed neck. The Predator's dreds keep his head from moving more than a few millimeters, so he's basically stuck there. The arms and legs move pretty freely, so he can fit in some of your older toy vehicles. The blades on his wrist are quite bendy and thin, which is more of a modern convention than the rest of the figure. It's still pretty awesome, though.
With no paint, an accessory of some sort - a skull, a pole, something - would have been nice. However, I can appreciate Funko's need to ensure that these figures come out right and make a good return on their tooling investment, so it's pretty fantastic to see the Predator come out in a few different colors. I'm hoping to see a few more in the future, but for the time being I'm pretty happy with their current spread. Get this one if you dig clear toys, otherwise just stick to the painted or glow versions. The quality is there, so just pick your favorites if you're in the market for these. Or whatever's cheap - you usually can't go wrong.
