The Deets on Dutch

Jungle Extraction Dutch is faithful to his appearance as they first enter the jungle, complete with military shirt and vest, features over 20 points of articulation, an M-16, Pistol, Machete, and Knife accessories. Jungle Patrol Dutch is immortalized in his camo muscle shirt and vest and features over 20 points of articulation, an M-16, Pistol, and Knife accessories.

But it’s Not all Arnold!

Predators Series 8 also includes an all-new update of the Masked Jungle Hunter Predator:

An iconic foe worthy of Schwarzenegger’s likeness, the new and improved Masked Jungle Hunter Predator includes additional ball-jointed hip and double knee articulation, over 25 points of articulation, extendable wrist blades, and removable backpack.

This series also brings the debut of a brand new jungle themed packaging look complete with 25th Anniversary logo.
