I can imagine a-dev's dreams mixing T2 and Star Trek.

"You just can't go around killing people."

"Why?"

"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one."

My guess would be cost.

My guess would be that pleather can be thinner, and thus look more realistic when "damaged".

It's a tough call for me, since I can only buy one. Ive always wanted a fully BD T-800, but the semi-BD head looks so good. Decisions, decisions............

Yeah I'm in the same boat, really like the semi BD head and severed arm pose, but I also want to have him fully BD..

It would probably cost more and since all his leather is damaged, it probably didn't make sense, and I agree, to use nicer materials. With DX10 it's all pristine looking so it pays off. Weathering may work better too, the MMS117 clothes looked nicely weathered but any photo I've seen of DX10 looks quite clean.

Yeah. It's definitely gonna be tough but I think I'll eventually settle with full BD head with both arms.

True. Not in any way a deal breaker, especially if it saves on costs. Just something I happened to notice.

Can't go wrong with that. If I get the EB, I think I'll be using the Hot toys figure for the semi-BD look. I'll probably pose him in the "search mode" stance, like in A-dev's sig. Then I can use the Enterbay for the full Battle damaged look.

Some meantioned a good idea in the dx10 thread, it might be a good idea to pick up an extra dx10 body for the partly damaged head and leave the full damaged head on the dx13 body, that way you can have it look more acturate in that when arnie has only the partly damaged head his chest is not damaged. I hope that makes sence:panic:

It's really hard to tell at this point...from the pictures they look different...the DX 13 looks a little older and the paint job looks different, but then again that is the prototype, I can only hope the finished product has a paint job that good...I would go Ape crazy...but with my luck somehow It won't be, but then again I think the DX10 LOOKS better than it's prototype....stranger things have happened....

It depends. If your referring to the DX10 as seen on the first page of the DX10 thread then no, they are not the same. That sculpt was scrapped. The DX10 was resculpted and used as the base of the DX13. So, if you are referring to the in hand pics of the DX10 then yes, it is the same sculpt as the DX13. The shape of the head and every single wrinkle match up. Any differences you see between the two are attributed to mass production of the sculpt. Those differences on the DX10 are: 1. The fine details are softened; 2. The paint/material is of lesser quality; 3. The eye holes are opened up slightly more (the smaller eye holes and the fact that the eyebrows are painted differently account for the more "angry" look people are seeing on the DX13).

Also, without even directly comparing the two, it is reasonable to assume that after HT spent the time and resources resculpting the DX10, they wouldn't, immediately following that, sculpt yet another T-800 head for the BD figure. It would be much more economical to work off of the DX10 when creating the DX13.

Love that BD arm. Not sure how accurate it is but it changes a lot in the film.

The more realistic approach to the BD with the really thick layers of flesh looks cool but I do wonder why they insist on so much artistic license in the overall shape of the wounds and how much endoskeleton is exposed.

though i think that chest flesh layer cannot be that fat.
but maybe that was meant to be a bodybuilder's muscle, in that case it's rather realistic.

Well they've actually done it on the full BD head and the knee aswell. The knee I don't mind too much as they needed to work in articulation and you could probably hide the excess flesh damage with the trousers.

anyway. this is the point where i feel sad that there is no line to send a picture to HT (and not to their trash folder). it would be so easy to fix for them, with their sculptors and machines, before letting it into production. and that error is annoying, taking into consideration that i will explore every BD part.

I know it's everywhere, I just meant the most glaring spot is the chest, there's hardly any Endo showing, but if a spot of damage had to be that off, I can live with the chest, if the faces or even arm were that off, it'd ruin te whole figure.

I hope the Full BD head gets some changes for greater accuracy but other than that I don't really mind the artistic license elsewhere. The figure overall just looks so cool its hard to be truly miffed about these things. Its mainly puzzlement from me as to why HT doesn't just copy the film straight like everyone else does and why they choose to risk a reaction from some quarters who insist on total accuracy. Given the choice I'd pick total accuracy myself - not insofar as making the BD look like a prosthetic addition but in getting the torn flesh the right shape and the right areas of endoskeleton exposed.

The damage on the head, chest, arm and leg look better than the actual movie. I love the gore, the meat and the exposed endo parts.

I don't mind at all if it doesn't match up to the film exactly. With this, it's like there's actually a 1/6 endo skeleton in an organic body, not applied prosthetics.

As for the accuracy of the damage, like a little piece missing above the brow here, or an added piece there, I don't even care. I wouldn't notice unless I was comparing them to screen grabs.

For me, I don't care if shapes are the exact size and pattern, but I care that the overall look reminds me of the film image I grew to love. This is why I loved Sideshow's 1:2 scale BD bust over the 1:1, the small one was closer to film where the big one went too far for me with the IDE of what if all this muscle and stuff were there, yeah it's neat, but the visual Inlike is more or less flesh torn away with just a hint of blood and muscle with the Endo beneath. The portraits are ok in this way, but the chest is a bit too far off for me, but again, it can be looked past because it's less signicant a spot on him than the others.

I get the impression you think one has to be one or the other - seeing innaccuracy and caring or not seeing and not caring.

What can I say, I'm in the middle somewhere. Sometimes I see and I care only a little. Sometimes I see and I care quite a lot (such as the squashed face-Arnie sculpts that are hopefully a thing of the past) Sometimes I don't really see and thus don't really care. :dunno

Whatever the case may be for me though I don't agree that anyone should be silenced. Everyone cares to varying degrees about different things, thats just how it is. I wouldn't dismiss one person's views unless I was happy for them to dismiss mine, which I'm not.

i care for all those details and at the same time this figure made me wait for it and buy the undamaged versions to match them, while i never liked T2 before i was promised that it will stand on my shelves and look good.


The portraits are ok in this way, but the chest is a bit too far off for me, but again, it can be looked past because it's less signicant a spot on him than the others.i'll either try to cover the chest with his jacket (to hide too thick meat) or pretend that it was meant to be that way and only lame T2 prostetics didn't allow to do that :)
(yes, i think T2 makeup was rather cheap and awful compared to T1, you may burn me)

anyway. a HUGE approvement since the T4 Marcus "battle damaged" battle damages.
imagine the T1 made in 2 years more :)
(BTW he was the first to have his knee without flesh, it is just too difficult to notice. i wonder if HT finds that out. if it doesn't, and extra T2 BD leg will fit :))

p.s. buying several of this figure makes several spare BD heads. with batteries inside them, i guess. that's a nice accessory for the office table :D i already have konami alien, kotobukiya robocain and a tylerdurdem P1 helmet there. T2 heads will join them :)

This. All this.


And I see what Maulfan means about the thickness of the chest. It's a little too much. Thankfully though, the bandolier should cover it a bit and it shouldn't be that noticeable overall.

There will probably be differences from figure to figure as well. I.e. maybe the shirt hole will be a little larger or not as much blood will be painted on the gory bits which will make the chrome endo abdomen stand out.

metal/flesh bonds are cool and gore.
though i think that chest flesh layer cannot be that fat.
but maybe that was meant to be a bodybuilder's muscle, in that case it's rather realistic.when i point out some easily avoidable errors, it's "nitpicking", and when others do, it's "ooooh i see" :D


There will probably be a difference from figure to figure as well. I.e. maybe the shirt hole will be a little larger or not as much blood will be painted on the gory bits.my advice is to use a varnish/blood-paint mix to glue clothes to wounds, making a drying blood effect. it'll allow to cover whatever you need. well, if you need.

It was a generalization, as I personally think the figure is just fine as shown. What I was trying to convey is that I would assume HT will do whatever they feel is necessary to make this figure "better", to satisfy the masses, when it is released. Just like with the DX10, the HS was changed which made it better than the proto pics and displayed figure at the cons.

I like the superfleshy bits but if possible I would have them expose all the correct areas of endoskeleton particularly on the head. At least make the exposed areas consistent with whats on the semi-BD head which as P. pointed out they aren't at the moment.

And there are a couple of "mechanical" detail inaccuracies, to bring up that jaw piston again as well as the fact that the endo eye only seems to have one of the four corner actuators that the eye had on Arnold's prosthetic as well as on the endoskeleton puppets/animatronics (it is possible that the eye thing may have to do with PERS).

We'll get our money's worth of talent and critique but its part of the massive wave of attention these releases get. I hope they do fix that exo jaw piece thing, but it won't take away from the overall impression. The likeness here really is a step up and the PERS comes off better than it did with the DX10.

it's strange that, while showing all damaged areas (including macro of broken elbow flesh, suddenly becoming brutally chewed instead of cut by a knife), no photo contains its skinless head back.
surely it must be there - every custom or mass-produced BD version had it, but...
maybe they thought that it would be a rather dull photo.

Honestly, its getting bought whether they improve the BD accuracy or not.

I'm just not sure that they will make any changes unless people talk about it and tell them - I don't see why they would have made it innaccurate in the first place unless it was a deliberate choice on their part. The film is over 20 years old with plentiful referance available so theres really no excuse for getting things wrong 'by mistake'. Not talking about 'likeness' to the actor, thats always going to vary from sculptor to sculptor (and here its pretty damn good IMO), but the details and shape of the BD frankly should be easy to mimic from the film - unless you deliberately choose not to.

If they decide to stick to what they've done, OK, I know I'm still buying it. However it can't hurt to tell them you'd rather see it done more accurately.

RE: the BD arm

I've always known it changes in just about every shot so I'm happy with what HT have done on the arm, I think it looks great as is and wouldn't have them change that.

RE: broken robot

The way I see it is this just shows the superiority of the T-1000. That he can batter the once seemingly unstoppable T-800. It may not be something you 'want' to see if you want to preserve your idea of the invincibility of the T-800 but I don't think theres anything wrong with what T2 did.

I was repainting my 12" NECA BD last night so I'm a bit familiar with the details again and realize now looking at the HT, there is too much skin showing to the right of his nose, there should be more Endo showing, but like you, not a deal breaker. I do think these sculpts show that HT only goes so far with accurracy and love for the source, where NECA often really shows a clear love and appreciation for the source. It can't be a skill challenge for HT because, and this is meant as no disrespect to NECA sculptors, but NECA got it right in the same scale so it's not like the heads are too small to do it, if no one could, I'd understand, but it has been done.

Its another one of those parallels with T1. You feel fear and pity for Kyle Reese facing down the T-800 with just an iron bar, you know he hasn't got a chance with that. Likewise here, T-800 just keeps taking on more and more damage while the T-1000 remains unhindered and immaculate.

As I said, if its a matter of what you prefer to see, no argument of mine will sway you. I'm just saying that technically T2 did nothing wrong by the T-800 and its portrayal. In fact I think Cameron did brilliantly to bring about those emotional responses in the viewer like fear and pity.

That's why it's good that they cut out most of the shots of T-1000 breaking down, if you knew he wasn't working right, you'd feel less concern about the heroes winning and the T-800 would seem like a wimp for losing. I think the face punch morphing into hands was critical for this, how do you stop something that can not only repair in moments from bullets, but changer it's shape at any time to avoid your attack.

cplhicks
11-28-2012, 09:24 AM
I personally loved seeing the T-800 getting all jacked up. In T1 we have a greater sense of danger as Reese is just human and can be killed so easily. It makes the audience more concerned and tense over if the heroes will prevail.

In T2 we see Arnie getting shot up over and over again and it feels less tense as Arnie is a machine and is unphased by most of the damage he takes. We just accept that he's pretty much invulnerable.

Then at the end the T-1000 just wrecks the T-800 and we get that sense of danger and tension as we realize just how vulnerable the T-800 is against the superior T-1000. All of sudden we are worried that the heroes aren't going to make it. I like that sense of danger.

It was a good choice to cut those scenes to increase the sense of danger, but I'm glad they were restored because they are really cool moments. I'd say the theatrical version is a must for the first time viewer, then special edition thereafter. Of course, that's probably the order most of us saw it anyway.

It was a real stroke of luck that they wound up at the steel mill which had a convenient swimming pool of molten steel that could dissolve him. Unlucky at first in the way it threw up scenarios in which the T-800 could start losing body parts but lucky in the end.

It's not so much that the glitch itself could help anyone, just that it shows he has vulnerabilities and can be affected. I'm the theatrical cut, viewers see a whole machine gun clip unloaded into the T-1000, who is then frozen and shattered into tiny pieces and he just forms right back, making you feel like nothing can stop him. The extra scenes make you think, he's messed up so maybe he can be stopped somehow. It's just like the T-800 coming back from the truck explosion and then the pipe bomb and still going after Sarah in T1, you want viewers to feel like the villain can't be defeated.

One wonders if that glitching would have been permanent.

Or if the T-800 hadn't allowed itself to be terminated would its flesh have grown back - one would think not, surely there'd be a limit to its healing ability. I'm sure it could have at least re-jigged that endo-arm to replace its own forearm. John really should have thought of that before lobbing the spare arm into the molten steel. At that point he was expecting the T-800 to carry on with them afterall.

not invincibility. you know, the baseball bat is not invincible, but when you see it crawling in pain, trying to save the master... it feels wrong about the bat image.
too much sad music, camera angles full of pity, so on :)
imagine pitiful zerg hydralisk?


p.s. again after watching that scene i felt that strong pity for the broken robot. hell it just wasn't right to make him a pitiful character. it fit robocop who had brains and personality, but works just wrong for a soulless instrument, turning him into a robocop copy.

A Robocop copy?

Nope.

There is a kinship between Robocop and T800 but it aint pity. It's called sacrifice, toughness and integrity. Those traits ought to be highly valued for human beings. Helps if you're looking at it from a male perspective. The body might be broken but the spirit remains. Commendable, not pitiful.

The body might be broken but the spirit remains. Commendable, not pitiful.that's exactly what i said. "it fit robocop who had brains and personality, but works just wrong for a soulless instrument".


As I said, if its a matter of what you prefer to see, no argument of mine will sway you. I'm just saying that technically T2 did nothing wrong by the T-800 and its portrayal. In fact I think Cameron did brilliantly to bring about those emotional responses in the viewer like fear and pity.yes he brilliantly turned two robots conflict into Bad Bully VS Family Father fight. and it's sooo pink )
as for "brilliant", it's stupid and not brilliant that in all that steel factory scenes T-1000 moves like mongoose with T-800, but becomes a paralyzed tortoise VS humans. as well as T-800 can't move his body&legs from a pair of head hits, while T1 was almost fully operational after a truck hit to the head which is not less than what T-1000 did.
hell, T1 survived two explosions, both of them tear metal apart, lost half of his body and arm and still was fast, while T2 lost an arm and started crawling slowly )
all those inconveniences are just too much fake in characters depicting.
but, as you said, if its a matter of what you prefer to see, no argument of mine will sway you.

John really should have thought of that before lobbing the spare arm into the molten steel. At that point he was expecting the T-800 to carry on with them afterall.wow i've never thought and heard from anybody about that natural but really unexpected detail!

How else were they going to do those fight scenes? How would you make it that it isn't bad bully VS family father fight?

As for the T-1000 being superfast against the T-800 and slowing down when faced with humans - T1 has the exact same kind of issues. Why didn't the T-800 just stamp on Sarah Connor's head when he was literally standing right over her at Tech Noir. I'm sure that would have been just as lethal as emptying a clip into her. Instead he took the time to reload giving Kyle the chance to shoot him down again. And again at the factory when the endoskeleton is chasing them. The stop-motion puppet seems to be walking pretty fast before barging into the door that they close just on time. Likewise in those full body shots as it walks through the factory its taking huge steps, striding along quite fast despite the limp. However as soon as it actually locates them...paralysed tortoise. A dramaticly tense slow limp towards them, allowing them to back slowly up the stairs. If he had charged them they'd be killed and film is over rather abruptly. Same thing in T2.

On your point about the damage sustained by the T-800s in each film and how much it affected them comparatively speaking - maybe you have a point here. Unless someone else has a good answer? Why does it seem like the T2 T-800 is more weakened by his fight with the T-1000 than the T1 T-800 is by truck impacts and explosions?


But the arm from cyberdyne is a right arm, the broken off one is the left

If anyone could re-engineer that right arm to become a left arm its the T-800 itself.

Way I see it, T1, he gets hit in the head by a truck, but it's a sudden impact that also knocks him down, where in T2, the T-1000 slams that equipment into his head twice at full force sandwiching his head between it and the wall behind him. As for the explosions in T1, the truck is fairly intact despite the tanker blowing up when he hops out on fire, he's more burnt than anything, and the explosion from Kyle splits him in half, no direct impact on the head.

Ultimately, the T-800 being a little slower after his arm get's ripped off, it's just Arnold's limits having to hang his arm or tuck it behind him, it's a little hard to move at your best pace while doing that. His knee is banged up from the fall of the tanker so his walk's a little limp anyway.

BTW-1 i like how T-1000 seems not to consider any way to destroy T-800. those moments when he hesitates a little before choosing the next way of damaging. looks like they both don't know how to destroy each other completely and just try to slow the enemy a little )

that's exactly what i said. "it fit robocop who had brains and personality, but works just wrong for a soulless instrument".

Isn't the T-800 just trying to keep on his mission, "protect John Connor"? T-800, even being ripped to shreds and broken down, will stop at nothing.

As far as I recall, between both the T-1000 and the T-800 during the whole fight scene, have no verbal exchanges and their facial expressions do not change to convey any other emotion except "terminate".

But in T2 you're supposed to care that he's getting his ass handed to him. So the film plays in such a way that it has that effect. I have no particular emotional response to T's 3 and 4 beyond ''haha cool'' and ''Aww wtf, thats crap what they did there''. The fight scenes were fun but ultimately forgettable till I watch them again simply for the superficial enjoyment. TSSC, I did get as upset as one gets over a TV show when they suddenly killed Derek Reese out of absolutely nowhere.

What the T-1000 could have done is morph his hand into a tool that could open up the T-800's CPU port - take it out and destroy it. But again that would end the film pretty much. It seems to me he aimed for what I guess was a vital area when he impaled the T-800. Though surely he should have known about the T-800's backup power or whatever.

though yes, everybody of my those-years-friends said "wow cool".
i don't see how one can care for a robot that cannot move after a head hit and losing one arm, when his copy from T1 didn't slow after being torn apart (thus breaking lots of energy circuits and having lots of wrong data BTW).
on the other hand it was not a copy, as in T1 it was clearly stated that there was only 1984/2029 displacement and as the arm in T2 was not from T1 and so on.

when i get the figure, he won't crawl. he'll be torn like hell but still in dangerous poses, like a spider with several missing legs but still menacing the enemy :)

That would require a tourk wrench to loosen the two bolts first like in the scene where sarah connor removes it in the deleted scene, and the t-1000 cannot form complex machines like a tourk wrench so not happening:wink1:

Here's how I view the series:
T1 is an awesome self-contained story.
T2 is a great expansion to the story in a much bigger scale, definitely more awesome than T1 to the 11 year old me.
T3 is just an excuse for Arnie as a Terminator again, basically a whole film telling me how cool the previous movies are.
T4 is a pretty good movie, but it doesn't excite me much.
The Sarah Connor Chronicles... well, I didn't have much interest in it as the time travel aspect was already overdone by T3. I didn't need to see it happening multiple times in a series.

Yeah, I didn´t like Summer Glau too much too...although I didn´t hate her on that, but what I loved was the whole alternate perspective.
Cromartie (stupid "name"(name...on a terminator...what did they think), but what gives) becoming the human looking shell for the autonomous T-1001´s Skynet counterprogramm John Henry.
Just an excellent idea I really liked the presentation of all the terminators too.
FX was great too.

With that being said:
I always look at the BD´s HS and think and KNOW that there are several inaccuracies, but I don´t give a damn.
This is just the version that I always wanted.
I had it...several times...in 6", but it NEVER satisfied me.
THIS 100% will and I guess no matter what EB´s will look like...I won´t buy it.

I'd say the knee trouser tear is something that will vary from figure to figure. Agreed though, they could have made it a bit less torn.

The teargas launcher would have been very nice. Difficult to see where it could come from now unless they added it to a John Connor figure to try and sweeten the deal on him.

I get the logic of one being clean / from a different scene, but... jeez. Yeah.

I'm not getting the 10, but it came out a lot better than I was expecting, despite a handful of nitpicks I have. That said, putting the well-done 10 in his simple pose next to 13's house of awesomeness next door definitely seems to do 10 a disservice.

Could live the rest of my collecting life without that little kid with the silly 80's hair fan. :D

Actually I think he’s a necessary piece to round out the collection of characters Hot Toys have chosen.

You got the MMS T-800 with his first appearance in the movie (even if the face sculpt is out-dated to some), a second MMS T-800 can be used to show off the exposed Endo arm.


There is the DX10 with the Cyberdine Shoot out weapons and if wanted can be made to have the look after the Galleria shoot out (because he doesn’t come with the black T-shirt) with the T-1000.

Now we’ll be getting the DX13 T-800 BD version with the ability to change his look from his escape from Cyberdine to the arrival in the Steel Mill to his final look before he is destroyed in the end of the movie.

You have Sarah Conner in her combat outfit which appears in mid-way through the movie almost to the end. (A John Conner could come with Sarah' sweats and the T-800's gas grenade launcher, since a motorcycle doesn't seem likely.)

You have the T-1000 that can be made to look as he did in multiple ways throughout the movie, patrol man, Motorcycle cop and then a mix of the two, not counting the morphed parts, heads, and bullet splashes.

Then you have the T-1000 in Sarah Conner disguise that can double for both the T-1000 and as Sarah Conner as she appeared at the very end of the movie.

The only key piece missing from this whole series is what the movie centered around, and that is John Conner . I think he is a must have piece, besides what else can Hot Toys give us but start doing 2.0’s of everyone they’ve already given us (T-1000, Sarah Conner).

As for Kyle Reese , I think he would go better with their T1 line if they plan on ever expanding it, but if they can add in the cut out head surgery feature on the DX10 from that cut out scene I guess they can add in Sarah’s dream sequence they cut out of the movie too and still do Kyle.

I'd say the knee trouser tear is something that will vary from figure to figure. Agreed though, they could have made it a bit less torn.

The teargas launcher would have been very nice. Difficult to see where it could come from now unless they added it to a John Connor figure to try and sweeten the deal on him.

Ether that or for the price were paying though it in with the dx13 set as an add on, they did it with king leo's alt head and unless we get a john connor theres no real hope of getting it.

I know. Who cares how detailed or screen accurate the figure is. We should just be happy were getting one!

I know, I know, I bang on about it, but I really do want this figure to be something you look at and say "wow, that sculpt cannot be topped - it's brilliant!".

Look at the Godfather. That sculpt is sheer unadulterated perfection. Jack Sparrow DX. Bang on point. HT have the talent. We know that. They've proven it. I know this is a "holy grail" figure for a lot of people... why not send HT an email with your suggestion/criticisms? At the very least, the figure will remain unchanged, and if all goes well, you (we) will all end up with a better figure for it! I'd love nothing more than to look at this and say "I don't see anything I feel could be done better.", and I think we, as consumers, who are spending $200-$300+ on a figure, are entitled to be able to want to say that. We're the ones keeping HT in business.

Does it look good right now? Well, yes. Is it as good as it possibly can be? The simple (and frank) answer is... no.

And we're still waiting for somethin to come of the Stallone poll that was conducted :(

As for T3 figures, if HT handled the damage as well as this figure, a BD T-850 would be hard to pass up but anything else from that movie is passable.

Agreed. All I really care about from that film is the full BD look which I've just posted over there.

I'm disturbed by no T1 police shootout/ T1 BD image I have to say.

I think it's like you said, they know there's interest but te poll touches on figures that maybe there is more or less support than they expect so they want to see. Despite the popularity of Arnie as the Terminator, T3 is often regarded poorly and if I were HT I wouldn't waste resources without some numbers to support it as a good choice.

Voted for Conan. But I also can't really see myself passing on a Commando figure if they made one. Fun poll, but we'll see if anything ever comes of it. Not holding any breath over here.

But yeah, a T1 police shootout/BD version should have been a no-brainer. I choose to believe that's because he's already in the works. Because that's how the Universe ought to work. :lol

EDIT: I'd also really love a one-armed endo torso from the end of T1!

11-30-2012, 10:47 AM
Voted Conan. Like you said a-dev, Im sure the T1 Battle Damage T-800 is well under way and HT knows it has the fan based needed to warrant a figure.

Im hoping the same thing along the lines of the Depp poll they ran awhile back. Mad Hatter wasnt on the list so Im hoping they are still planning on doing him.

T3 figures will eventually be made no matter what. The Terminator fanbase is waaaaay too big for it not to be done eventually. With the two T2 terminators and hopefully an endo coming soon,I hope they do commando or running man next. But what Id really like is a total recall arnold. That would be kick ass!

You know, why can't Hot Toys just give us a True Type body with an Arnold head and multiple hair pieces so we could customize whatever Arnold, from whatever movie we wanted. I mean they’re already done it with lesser actors; including the President.

I would beat money on the fact that they could sell thousand without even trying, and everyone would be happy; I’d buy as many as I could afford.

All he’d need would be three hair pieces, bald for Mr. Freeze, long hair for Conan, regular hair cut for anything from Kinder Garden Cop to Running Man, to Total Recall, and the Flat top for Terminator and Commando. Include in some fists, trigger hands, and relaxed hands, and it would be fantastic.

I don’t think Bruce Willis (I’d buy him for sure), Sylvester Stallone, or any other actor would do as well, but they could still do them just in lesser runs.
