Toy Commercial Tuesday: Alien Vs. Predator From Kenner

I’m not sure if you saw, but one of the cooler things on display at this year’s Toy Far was the upcoming line of Predator figures from NECA which are actually based on the 90s Kenner line of toys. If you missed the news, check out this CBR post I did for Toy Fair and peep my wonderful photographs. Seeing those new figures reminded me of one of my favorite quirks of the toy industry from decades’ past: action figures for children based on R-rated film properties. With that in mind, I headed over to YouTube and started looking around for Kenner Predator commercials. The best I could find is the above one for a line of Alien Vs. Predator figures that actually look pretty amazing. I’m not sure how glowing in the dark helps Stalker catch his prey, but the Dreadlock whipping one is pretty funny. Meanwhile, the spiky boar Alien is a great use of action features and that queen is super gross.

As an added bonus, here’s a commercial for the Jaguar Aliens Vs. Predator video game which I did not play.

What a great and disturbing commercial for children!
