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.
