TRG Toy Review of Neca Toys Classic Berserker Predator

I have been a huge fan of the Aliens and Predator franchises for a majority of my life. I remember my dad letting me watch the first predator at a young age and him letting me sneak in to watch some of the colonial marines battle screeching aliens in the Cameron classic film, "Aliens". It's been a big part of my sci-fi nerdom. When I was young, I had a small series of Aliens 2 pack toys from Kenner. I loved them so much that when I got a chance to get the single carded action figures and vehicles, I jumped to the chance! That lead to me finally getting a good run of the Predator toys that coincide with the Aliens toys from Kenner. Now, Neca toys has made two new action figures that are in the classic vintage Kenner style. One of which is the Alien NeoMorph that appeared in the movie, "Alien Covenant, and the other is the Berserker Predator, that appeared in the film, "Predators". I have the Berserker Predator! Let's take a look at him.

This toy is great! It is nice to have a vintage style action figure that looks very good with the actual vintage collection. The paint and sculpting are a nice upgrade to the vintage look, but doesn't overdo the surpassing of quality. In Laymen's terminology,  it's still looks simple enough to mix in the vintage toy line and not stick out to much.

I was disappointed with the attachment of the accessories. Both the cannon and the blade keep falling off in play. In all honesty, it is an adult collector toy, but, a little glue would go a long way. I have thought about gluing the blade down on my personal toy, due to it falling off every time I move him.

So for this toy, I give him a 4 out of 5 stars. If his accessories fit better, he would have gotten a 5 star rating. He really is a cool nod to the vintage toys we all loved so well.
