I didn't even think to ask for a Predator (Thermal Vision) ReAction Figure. I was just in Toys R Us one day, and blammo, there it was for ten bucks. I took a few days to mull it over. "Do I need another Predator figure?" The answer was yes, and I scooped it up even though it's the same masked mold I've bought at least four times by now. Paint makes up for a lot in these toys, and something this weird - and technically something we never really saw in the movie - is a must-buy for fans of this junk.
This is wildly unnecessary, but arguably less unnecessary than the glow figure (which I had to have). It has the same 5 points of articulation complete with restricted neck. The arms and legs move fine, the neck not so much - but you're buying this figure for the deco at this point.
Molded in a bright green plastic that looks awesome under black light (see below), this one is a good one. Sadly the yellow doesn't react to the light well, but the pink does. Odds are this won't make a bit of difference to most people who buy it, but it does make for some interesting photos. Each limb has at least some paint on it, with little yellow splotches on the toes and larger yellow areas on each limb. Pink is in short supply, but looks great on the lightly textured figure. There's not a lot to it, to be honest, and it would probably have benefitted from a little more color on the hair. As it is, it looks like the world's greatest custom figure made from an unpainted test shot.
At this point, there's only so much you can do with this mold. Or so I thought. I've got no less than 7 ReAction Predators and if Funko decides to go full-on 1990s Kenner we could end up with a lot more. I don't know if they'll be big hits or not, but I keep buying them and I assume at ten bucks there are a lot of others who will as well. The 4-inch plastic collectible toy is probably something you don't need, but then again, neither is anything else we present here.
