TNTM: Yellow Lantern Predator and Joker Alien from NECA

Comic book character mash-ups are all the rage at the moment.  Just look at the popularity of Batman Dark Nights Metal.  All the alternate universe Batman’s merged with other superheroes were haunted my nightmares.

Batman Who Laughs has reached the same level of stardom as Bruce Wayne.  People just seem to respond really well to the character merges.  San Diego Comic Con had NECA unveil Batman vs Predator and Superman vs Alien figures.  They have stepped it up for New York Comic Con (NYCC) with two new 2 figure sets.

The first NYCC exclusive set has Predator as a Yellow Lantern (Sinestro Corps) member along with Hal Jordan/Jon Stewart.  If Sinestro was looking for a more perfect addition to the Yellow Lanterns he would be hard pressed to find someone who strikes more fear in your heart than a Predator.

It is based on the 2008 Dark Horse/DC Green Lantern story collaboration.

Predator comes with his Sinestro Corp weapon set a shoulder cannon, a spear, and his retractable throwing blade.  You can even remove his iconic mask to reveal his horrific face. The Green Lantern figure has the ability to use either Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart for the head piece.

The other NECA NYCC exclusive set is the Joker Alien with. It comes with a great accessory assortment.  This action figure 2-pack is inspired by the 1997 Batman/Aliens comic book mini-series co-published by DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics.

The story has Batman face strange new Aliens produced using DNA from some of Arkham Asylum’s deadliest inmates. The very thought of mixing Gotham’s most notorious villains with Aliens is terrifying.

NYCC attendees can buy these action figure sets for $60 each.  If you are unable to attend NYCC, don’t fret.  Non-attendees are able to purchase them online for a little bit more.  New York Comic-Con will run from Oct. 3 to Oct. 6.

TNTM Video: The Predator Movie Review

Shane Black’s The Predator is the newest sequel in the Predator series of movies. There are plenty of fight scenes for the action movie aficionados. There is a small bit of humor mixed in as well to help offset the violence.

Overall as far as sequels go, it was a good continuation of the Predator story.

The Predator gives us more insight as to why the Predators keep coming back to Earth. We also see not all the Predators are in agreement with the plans the Yautja have for humans.

The final scene of the movie sets it up for a sequel(s). When the Predators inevitably come back, we have something for them.

Tell us what you think about The Predator. Where do you rate it among all the Predator movies? Let us know in the comments.

TNTM Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens

Do you like Judge Dredd?  How about Predator?  Are Aliens more of your thing?  If you are like me and you enjoy all three franchises you will want to check out this new title from Darkhorse Comics.

This ultimate science-fiction crossover pits the legendary lawman Judge Dredd against the universe’s supreme hunters, the Predators, as they both try to survive an onslaught by the galaxy’s ultimate killing machines, the Aliens!

Dark Horse recently revealed their plans to join up with IDW and 2000AD to bring these three iconic characters together starting July 27. Christened Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens, the series will be written by John Layman (Chew) with art by Chris Mooneyham (Predator: Fire and Stone) and cover by celebrated Preacher artist Glenn Fabry. Dark Horse’s official press release describes the upcoming futuristic showdown:

“Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson have tracked a criminal cult across the Cursed Earth and into the Alabama morass, where a mad genetic scientist with destructive designs has acquired the best genes that evolution has to offer—a xenomorph skull! A Predator, attracted to the warm climate and superior prey, has declared hunting season as he calls for backup. All paths will cross in a mind-blowing sci-fi showdown with the fate of the Earth at stake!”

Writer John Layman admits to being a huge fan of both series and that this crossover is “the sort of concept that would have Teenage John Layman wetting his pants with excitement.” While discussing the book he dove into the premise of the new series, revealing the fun twist which kicks off the limited run:

“We open the book with a crash landed predator. Instead of being the hunter as usual, the predator is the prey. He’s crash landed in a jungle overgrowth in the middle of the Cursed Earth. He is pursued by an Island of Dr. Moreau group of man-animal hybrids, creations of a crazed genetic engineer. And this crazed scientist recovers not just the predator, but some of the predator’s hunting trophies—including a Xenomorph skull and the Xenomorph’s DNA contained therein. You can probably see where this is headed but add to it Dredd chasing the robot leader of an apocalypse death cult and everybody on a collision course. Then s*** gets nuts!”

Layman admits his money is on Dredd to win this fight, but he promises to put him and his world through a lot of hell first.  Having all 3 of these characters together in one book promises to be a great story.  I only wish there was a way to bring Robocop into the fold.  John Layman has proven his story-telling ability with Chew, so I am looking forward to this title.
