So far only the Motorcycle T-1000 has been confirmed, with Sarah a possibility. Between these and an all new T1 line, I can't wait for Toyfair 2011.

John is very unlikely, 12 year old boy is a tough sell as a figure. Sarah is a maybe & we still have Motorcycle Cop T-1000


young John is a tough sell, a 12 year old boy figure? Sarah is a maybe but we have original Terminator & other T-1000s still to come

have any of you done any modifications to the Pescadero/Battle Across Time faces to try to smooth out that part where the sunglasses handles touch the side head meet. no matter how I pose the figure it still looks a little odd having that part sticking out and was wondering how some of you have fixed it, if possible?

From NECA's Twitter:

Thats almost completely good news :clap Thanks Johnny and Sachiel!

So we will be either getting a Neca Steel mill T-1000 or be able to make one. I guess I'll definitely hold off on any steelmill-related customs.

Pity that our fears about the likelihood of young John being made are justified and confirmed but the possibility of a Neca Sarah Connor is nice. I just hope its to be based either on the Steel mill or Pescadero escape. I don't need another Assassin Sarah with the cap - McFarlane's one is decent enough and for the same reasons I was originally unhappy about the Hot Toys regular figure - the ponytail and cap combo only represented a bare minimum of her screentime in the film. Thus the hair down look is far preferable if its the combat outfit.

I don't think anyone has attempted that. The thing you're talking about is something we've all just gotten used to. It definitely bothered me at the start but not so much anymore.

Nice pics. Although it doesn't look very chrome - what do you think of it in person?

MaulFan
08-02-2010, 06:01 PM
It's not so much a chrome look, but it's a nice, metallic, reflective finish, definitely looks like a metal of some sort and not just a grey, raw sculpt, has a better shine in person than the camera's capturing. I'm happy with it, if they ever did it at 12" like this, I'd get that too.

I enjoyed my T2 figurs because I loved the movie and wanted to play it out with toys, but even at 9-10 years old, it bothered me that none of them looked even close to the movie, particularly T-1000s, there was no fully clean Robert Patrick looking figure, almost wonder if they didn't have rights to his portrait or something, the biker figure looked nothing like him and the other version was almost like Two-Face from Batman.

I don't get NECA's reasoning why they don't think a John Conner figure would sell. For their Bioshock series, they released the Little Sister 2-pack and those are just 2 little girls. Or how about the multitude of Harry Potter figures? Most of those characters are just kids too. I mean really, who wouldn't buy a John Conner figure? He is only, after all, basically the main character of T2. If they don't feel confident about him single carded, pack him in with his bike to make it more appealing. Or better yet, pack him in a 2 pack with the T-1000 (Motor Bike version) or even the Pescadero T-800.
As much as I love NECA, I some times wonder about their mentality towards human characters in their Sci-Fi properties.

Sure I tried to have as much fun as I could with those Kenner figures, personally I only had the endo and the exploding "2 face" T-1000, but they fell far short of what I wanted even as a child. Even then I thought the gimmickry was a load of crap and just couldn't understand why they wouldn't make a normal T-800 and T-1000.

I was thinking about that yesterday, the whole 2 pack idea. I haven't always followed Neca, really only since these T2 figures, and don't know what kind of history they have as regards child figures or 2 packs. Does it make financial sense to do a 2 pack? Would it have to cost more at retail than a normal figure? I was thinking surely it would have to otherwise Neca would be doing themselves out of money. Unless they made John Connor as an accessory-free, poorly painted statue with no articulation, wouldn't it cost just as much to make him as any other new figure? So they'd then be losing money by not selling him at full cost seperately?

Packing him with a rerelease of Pescadero T-800 might be interesting though if they feel theres more money to be made from that older figure which could help to absorb the cost of making a new John connor.

It is definitely him. His account is verified by Twitter and he regularly posts pics of himself at events. Last week he was at a movie museum and posted pics of himself sitting on the Harley from T2. What a legend.

I hope Dutch happens, they could do a T2 style wave of his looks from the film, from red t-shirt with no camo to Guerrilla camp assault to building a trap version to the final mud covered version. Since NECA has a healthy relationship with Fox from Predators among others, it is not impossible. I always figure if the seed is there in NECA's minds, it is only matter of time before it happens.

Thats really cool about Arnie following your twitter. Who would ever have thought the internet would be putting you in touch with the Terminator.

I'd love to get all the possible versions of Dutch. It seems unlikely though, not enough recycling potential because of the differences throughout the film. That said I think I'd prefer the movie poster version of Dutch if it was to only be one, with nude torso except for the ammo vest thing.

08-05-2010, 12:11 PM
Anyone notice that grenade launcher being used in Inception? Instantly made me think of the T3 figure.

Ever since that bit of NECA twittering about how tough a sell young John Connor would be I just keep mulling it over. The more I think about it the more annoying its going to be to not have him. I won't lie and say he'd be the "best figure ever!" but I just think hes very important for that sense of completeness about the T2 collection. We've got the T-800 and T-1000 to display locked in battle over nothing. And a lot of my extra T-800s would really benefit from having young John to interract with such as my 'Uncle Bob' giving the thumbs up. Buuut thats just me :(

NECA, if theres any conceivable way to make a young John that your loss, if any, would be minimal, please do so for us hardcore fans. I rather like the idea someone had of packing him with the Pescadero T-800, perhaps, if it helped as a limited exclusive set (not that I generally like to encourage exclusivity)

quiggle
08-05-2010, 12:58 PM
NECA seems pretty stubborn on making only a Dutch from Predator if they get the license, so it's doubtful they would make John. they'd probably makes a Miles Dyson before him.

a-dev
08-05-2010, 02:40 PM
Miles Dyson? I could buy a Miles Dyson :dunno :lol

But I would seriously. He'd go well with my Man or Machine T-800 or Cyberdyne T-800.

Alas for Predator we're lucky just to be getting Dutch. They'd have to individually pursue and pay for the likeness rights of each P1 human and not necessarily have big sellers on their hands anyway. They're used to talking to Arnie's people plus, with the possible exception of a Jesse ventura figure hes the only guaranteed seller so... it'll annoy me when I get their Dutch figure because he'll miss his backup - I would buy all the P1 soldiers

Young John though. Hes one character out of a mere 4 primary characters in T2. I wish they'd take the risk on him.

Johnny Utah
08-05-2010, 02:58 PM
It's true that NECA are cosy with Arnold's people. Dutch will happen given NECA's public sharing of their attempts to snag his rights. Arnold is being very generous with his likeness right now because he'll be back making movies again soon, and wants to get his image back in the public eye. Dev - pm me your facebook if you have one. High times ahead.

I actually don't have a facebook, haven't jumped on that bandwagon yet. As soon I started a bebo account it seemed to became spam-city and everyone abandoned it - I never liked the name 'Bebo' anyway, it was hard not to associate it with 'Teeny Bopper'. I'm tempted to join facebook though, everyone I know is on it.

I'd like to see Arnie back in films again, its just a pity The Expendables will have been and gone, I would have liked more than a cameo by him. Arnie and Stallone as main starrers would have been preferable.

Besides all the Harry Potter characters, there's tons of Twilight characters. Yet, John Conner can't carry is own? Come on now.
John Conner could sell several different ways.

- Single carded. John with several accessories like backbag, laptop, endo skeleton arm in case, blade for the T-800 Man or Machine figure, and maybe even a life-size CPU chip

- Single carded. John with his motor bike and boombox

- 2 pack (similiar to Bioshock Big Sister/Big sister) John and Pescadero T-800. That T-800 is arguably the most iconic look for the Terminator. How many of us wouldn't spend an extra $10 to own a John with the awesomely sculpted T-800?
Perfect for the hardcore fan and the casual Terminator fan alike.

- 2 Pack. John with the Motorcycle T-1000. Since NECA is already making the biker version, reuse the legs from that version, the torse from Galleria and BOOM! Another famous look for the T-1000Give the T-1000 the shaking his finger hand as a bonus.

Come on NECA. One of those ideas has got to be to your liking. Think about it.

I really like that idea. I personally don't necessarily need another Pescadero T-800 I'd probably find a use for it somehow and it seems like packaging John with the T-800 would ensure instant recogniseability to casual purchasers.

The saviour of the human race and his protector in one 20th anniversary set. It seems perfect to me. Neca would get to make more money on a previous figure which would hopefully offset the money they somewhat reluctantly spend on making a new otherwise 'hard sell' figure. Or am I completely off the mark in thinking that?

08-05-2010, 04:34 PM
Indeed, preaching to the choir can be very nice!

As to the 20th anniversary, its possible this occasion is NECAs main impetus in giving us a 4th series. The gist from Tankman after he completed his work on series 3 was that he was ready to move on to T1 (or at least that it was his hope, T1 hadn't been announced at the time). Maybe I read too much into it but I took that to mean that series 3 would be the last for T2. But when you happen to have this license around such a significant anniversary you surely don't just drop it the year before the occasion comes up. Thankfully NECA were wise to that.
John and Sarah would be beyond cool to get but at least NECA are surely about to finish out the T-1000 for all his main looks in the film. Can't wait to get me my Steel Mill T-1000s - those extra Final Battle T-800s I bought will be justified!

I really hope if any 12" T-1000 is done it's the liquid metal version, if they dodge further 12" because of Hot Toys' line, then it'd be perfect, as HT won't be going that route, their product type really doesn't suit the look but NECA"s does and plenty of 12" T2 collectors would probably like to have that look of him in their lineups.

Some minor quibbles prevent it being perfect - Its a smidge smaller than the NECA T-1000 hands but really not noticeably so. The one I have is a different skin tone (possibly affected by cigarette smoke) and the texture is smoother than NECAs hands.

I'm uploading all my Terminator pics onto an imageshack account now. When it's done, it is free for all to have a look at. I did this to help Kyle and the guys at NECA to make the most accurate T1 figures possible and also to get Kyle to post in this thread any behind the scenes nuggets on the line, which is my Grail.

The album spans T1 and T2, maybe one or two from Salvation. No T3. It is filled with images not only from the films like stills, but tons of behind the scenes pictures, a lot of rare shots, as well as images of the Terminator in figure form from NECA as well as Hot Toys over the years.

A cool thing in this album is the fact that there are many pics not just of the key characters but also close-ups of the weapons used in T1, to help out Sam Lute, weapons sculptor for the line. I'll add the link as soon as it is done.

do any of you have the NECA Reservior Dog figures and can place the sunglasses on a Man or Machine/Cyberdyne Showdown and tell me how that looks? I'm thinking of trying that tweak to see if that would look better than the bulging side skin/sunglasses handles on Pescadero Escape. thanks

I'm uploading all my Terminator pics onto an imageshack account now. When it's done, it is free for all to have a look at. I did this to help Kyle and the guys at NECA to make the most accurate T1 figures possible and also to get Kyle to post in this thread any behind the scenes nuggets on the line, which is my Grail.

The album spans T1 and T2, maybe one or two from Salvation. No T3. It is filled with images not only from the films like stills, but tons of behind the scenes pictures, a lot of rare shots, as well as images of the Terminator in figure form from NECA as well as Hot Toys over the years.

A cool thing in this album is the fact that there are many pics not just of the key characters but also close-ups of the weapons used in T1, to help out Sam Lute, weapons sculptor for the line. I'll add the link as soon as it is done.

I can't wait to see the pics and thanks a lot.

Yeah I've noticed that around here. There seems to be fewer regular posters in the NECA Terminator thread than in the NECA Predator thread. And far more people contending that NECAs Predator figures are 'better' than the Hot Toys Predator figures than there are people saying that NECAs Terminator figures are better than Hot Toys Terminator figures. In fact to me it seemed like if you were in the NECA thread saying that Hot Toys predator figures were better you were in the minority. Anyway thats just my observation. Personally I think both companies are putting out the very best figures from those licenses you could possibly get. What NECA lacks in its finish (and QC) it makes up for in its accuracy to the source material. What Hot Toys lacks in accuracy it makes up for in its finish and sheer impressiveness. Both companies ought to be important for a fan of these films.

To me, the neca terminator sculpts are years ahead of the hot toys sculpts. The hot toys arnold still seems odd to me, and the neca figure has sculpted clothes with all the correct wrinkle lines and such as opposed to the smooth leather jacket and pants of the hot toys. Granted the paint job on neca figures aren't good (some are very well done but other suck!) I only care about the sculpt, because if the paint really bothers me it's really an easy minute fix most of the time.

I can't see that. A wave of just T-1000s celebrating the 20th anniversary? No, Arnie would have to be in there somewhere to ensure maximum recogniseability and for the benefit of anyone who missed prior versions.

The only unmade version (which is possible to make by partswapping between existing figures) is the SWAT shootout T-800 before he damages his knee and gets the limp.

Other than that you're talking straight rereleases or, as some of us hope, a rerelease of the likes of Pescadero T-800 this time packaged with a brand new young John Connor. :pray:


WOW what a comparison.

Yeah, in that particular comparison theres no doubt in my mind that the NECA figure looks the best. You can't notice the lesser skin texture and inferior paint on the NECA in that photograph while the incredible detail and paintjob of the Hot Toys is better demonstrated in other, better lit pictures. But if I was a casual observer I'd say the sculpt on the NECA is better based on that comparison.

I'd say they're both flawed, the NECA's always felt a little on the elongated side, HT's a bit squished, and like the comparison, Arnold's actual portrait lies somewhere in the middle ground.

However, both are great and rather than just one nice collectible, we get several, so no biggy, love the Hot Toys and NECA figures.

Cool. Try that with the Hot Toys figure and it wouldn't match up so close. In fairness to HT that was an unflattering image but the sunglasses are definitely wrong and had they been bigger, as they should be, they would have made the HT figure's nose disappear. They were made to not look wierd on a slightly too short face.
But speaking of the HT T-800 I think its time for me to take mine back out of the box because today I got T-1000 in Sarah Connor disguise :yess: I also got the NECA liquid metal T-1000 figure. It was a good day!

Liquid metal T-1000 is a worthy addition to the line. It actually is too detailed to represent the CG morphing T-1000 IMO but I think it looks very like the 'tin foil' T-1000 who briefly fought with the T-800 in the steel mill. I hope my forbidden planet order also goes ahead because I'd like another one to customise into said Steel mill 'tin foil' T-1000 with the appropriate motorcycle boots - stolen from a spare set of McFarlane T-1000 legs, chromed over and transplanted onto the NECA figure - assuming NECA don't go ahead and make it in series 4. Thats actually why I'm particularly eager to hear what NECA are doing next for T2, so I know what not to bother trying to customise.

I don't laugh at that. I agree a flaw in the sculpt is a worse issue than bad paint. I find myself more frustrated by the Hot Toys sculpt because its so close to perfection and only just falls short - pun intended - in the middle of the face. I find it hard not to be distracted by the way his nose is too sloped and the bridge not long enough, making his eyes too close to his mouth and looking slightly too far apart because of that. And in turn that meant they had to make the sunglasses innaccurate so as they wouldn't look massively oversized on his face. That sounds like a lot of complaining but its all out of love because everything else is so right - the eyes are unmistakeable, the mouth, the chin, the cheekbones and the shadow they create are dead on. Plus all the realistic details like little veins in the temples etc.

NECAs sculpt doesn't have the above sculpt 'short'coming and I also disagree with Maulfan about it being elongated. I'm not overly fond of the amount of lines in the mouth area and this chin dimple thing (even if he does have it, its not something you notice quite like this) but its otherwise a perfect T2 Arnie sculpt. I wish we could see it with a HT quality finish.

I originally posted this idea in the NECA Predator thread but I'll re-post it in the appropriate thread here.
Basically, a few of the guys were tossing around ideas on how to convince NECA to make a John Conner figure from T2. We've heard before from NECA that they are not confident that a single packed Conner figure would be marketable enough. To work around that issue, I thought it would be best if he was included in a 2-pack with a re-released Pescadero T-800 for instant recognition.

08-14-2010, 07:46 AM
A 2-pack to get John made might have worked before, but I think it's too late now, unless they pack John with a new T-1000 or a Sarah Connor.. The only time I can think of NECA putting out a child figure in a 2 pack is their Michael Myers figure, and in that instance, the adult Michael was from a rare and priecy box set, so it was a chance for people who missed the box set or didn't want to pay that price to get the Michael figure. With this T2, they've pretty much made every possible T-800 already, if people wanted it, they've bought it, so even as a 2pack, the T-800 would likely be a reissue and then the 2 pack would really only appeal to die hards after the John and willing to toss the T-800 to get him, but casuals who might be iffy about John will pass not wanting to pay the higher price just for him because they already have the T-800 included. If they pack John with an all new figure, then it might work because both parts of the set would have appeal to a broad range.

Buttmunch
08-14-2010, 09:24 AM
But all 4 of the T-800s in the first two waves sold like Hot Cakes! The new wave's haven't moved as quickly, well, at least the T2 3D figure hasn't. But I think there would be many casual people that would jump at the chance to get the Pescadero T-800 again, and John would be an added bonus. And I think only the die hards would want John to begin with and I think we'd all be willing to buy yet another T-800 to get him.

the only T-800 figure they didn't make is Man or Machine with human left arm. maybe they can make a 2-pack John and t-800 from the garage scene with an alternate head that shows when they removed the chip. but then you probably need a Sarah as well.

I don't think many people would buy the Man or Machine figure with a clean arm, it's a briefly seen moment before the main shot of the scene.

I'd take a buff, nude Arnuld....in some ways, its the most iconic portrayal of the character........:horror - not that I'm into nude dudes, but iconic is iconic



The only way that would ever happen is if they made him like Ken and by that I mean unanatomically correct. And even then he'd have to be a SDCC exclusive or something.

Got the 12 inch pescadero today. Love how you can take the sunglasses off.

Unless you're taking a sarcastic swipe at the figure I'm not sure why you would 'love' how you can take the sunglasses off what with the eyes being unpainted. Literally nothing to see there!

I think anything would be better than the boring flat paintjob the 18" endo has by default. Go for it.

Well twittering them could do no harm to the chances of 12" Cyberdyne Showdown happening. I'm surprised to hear that they haven't ruled it out. I'd buy it. And if HT doesn't do a Cyberdyne version of T-800 things like the bandolier and gloved hands from a 12" NECA could possibly be used on the HT MMS117 T-800 to convert him into a Cyberdyne.

Its probably true that a 12" Man or machine wouldn't sell all that well, it did seem to be the pegwarmer of series one. But it would benefit from the larger scale - the endo arm could be more detailed like the 2up that was first shown. Again I'd buy it for completist reasons probably but there'd be no strict need for it what with the Hot Toys figure being able to recreate that scene.

The paint jobs on these terminators aren't that bad actually, because they aren't very complex. The only problem that I've had is that the paint actually flakes off sometimes, but since I've sealed all of them that doesn't happen anymore (it also makes them look kind of sweaty like they did in the film!)

I wouldn't say likeness is any better between the big and small figures, the key to likeness is the basic forms and those are there in both scales the same, but, the larger look nicer because they have more detail. While that sounds like a duh statement, I don't feel so with NECA because they sculpt everything 12" or 18" and then shrink it, I think they 7" sculpts could be more detailed if they were just sculpted at the scale, still not as detailed as a larger size, but surely more than shrinking down a large original.

I'd get a Cyberdyne 12" just to have the mini-gun, bag and grenade bandolier for my HT figure, sure they wouldn't be as nice as HT accessories but they'd be more accurrate than bashing with parts from other figures to get those looks.

a-dev
10-10-2010, 05:13 AM
That all-plastic bandolier from the Final Battle 12" fits rather nicely on the Hot Toys figure - but as we know its specific to the steel mill scenes, no grenades left in it and orientated that the buckle is on his front shoulder. The full bandolier on the NECA Cyberdyne Showdown figure would probably work great with the HT figure if it were upscaled. In fact I'd rather have that than the one I have on order with BBTS.

MaulFan
10-10-2010, 08:37 AM
That's what I mean, even the nice BBTS custom one that's out there, it's closest to T2 out of any on the market, but it's still not right, the grenades are too small and aren't even M79 grenades as far as I can tell, and the bandolier just isn't entirely right. While a NECA one would be rubber, I think it'd still loook good and it'd be 100% accurrate in design which would be fine with me. I actually care most about a proper bandolier, I have a good grenade launcher and mini gun for my HT, but the bandolier I have currently is WAY off and while better, the custom one being sold isn't dead on either. Still have hopes for HT to make a figure.

At this rate, I wouldn't be shocked if we see nothing until Toy Fair 2011, i mean it's October already, that's only 5 months away, NECA seems more focused on Predator stuff for now as a core line, and they'll probably try to work it so that more T2 and T1 products will be close together to keep sales hype going. When the T2 line started it had the buzz of Salvation's release to help it, now I think they need to keep all their Terminator stuff coming in a row to keep the interest there.

but they are $15 to $17 figures.
imo i still think they could improve on paint, since they come with less and less accessories each series they produce.

Not the T2 series... Or gears of war... Predators maybe but there's not a lot you can put with them unlike the wolf pred from AVPR

Indeed though their Bioshock series from the ones I've seen and own are pretty good paint wise.

yes, some series are hit or miss.
like on the predators series, the berserker's paint is a miss, but the falconer predator paint looks pretty good on mine. my classic's paint is pretty good also, but neca could do better,
i still buy their predator and alien lines, bad paint or not.

From something NECA said, we won't be seeing those until Toy Fair in February or later.

I just got the steel mill figure. I have to say I'm really pleased with it. I don't really mind the paint too much because I have it displayed in a pretty dark place but it's definitely a really cool picture. Awesome likeness.

I don't suppose anyone has a Final battle Damaged head they'd want to sell though...

As far as we know. I think a liquid metal T-1000 twelve inch would sell well.

I agree, NECA's product type is the best medium for that look, and there's plenty of collector's building larger 12" T2 collections, I'm sure there's plenty that'd spend $30 to add the liquid metal look into the lineup, so long as it came out at least of the same quality as the 7" one.

And here one picture with Light Up Eye.

So many small perfect looking details, unbelievable !I
think too much quality for 30 bucks, lol.

One of the best T2 figure ever made, spot on likeness !

The problem is Necas quality Control could be better ! I had 3 examples of this and only one (this on the Photo) have perfect looking Arnie likeness.

You need a little luck when you buy neca figures

Anyway im so happy that Neca release the T1 line next year ! :hi5:

Y'know it is possible to achieve the exact galleria shooting pose with the 12" figure. Looking straight ahead and aiming straight ahead.

I'm always seeing pictures where its clear that thats the pose people are going for but they don't seem to fully pull it off. Perhaps afraid of breaking the figure but it can be done.

Tomorrow i fix the Paint on the Face (Battle Damaged) with the Cottonstick method too, like here:
Simply trick but very effective

Is there anymore news on the 12" line for T2? What about the T-1000, endo or mini-gun T800?

I'd be surprised if we got any more 12 inch figures from NECA. I'm actually surprised we even got 2 of them.

I'm unclear what this cottonstick trick is. What exactly is it and what does it do?

Really? I'd be surprised if they didnt do a 12" T1000 at least to go with the T800, it would make sense to make one and no sense to not.

MaulFan

From a story perspective sure, but I don't think the 12' figures are big sellers for NECA, not as successful as the 7" at least. I think if they were going to do a 12" T-1000 we'd have seen it by now or heard about it coming at least.

It's quite possible the Hot Toys line is influencing their decisions too. They control the 7" market, there's no one else putting out 7" T2 figures, but Hot Toys, even though in a much different market, is a competitive 12" product If the T-800s didn't do well and they see Hot Toys come out with a T-1000 that can look like anything NECA's figures can, they might feel it not worth trying to sell their own. The only NECA T-1000 that could sell to customers who are more focused on Hot Toys would be the liquid metal because Hot Toys isn't delivering that.

I'm glad we at least got the full BD ad a 12", in the event Hot Toys never does that, I'll at least have a 12" BD figure of some kind in my collection.
