Today I bought the T-1000 Battle damage by Neca. I would love to have the 12 "comes near to my T-800 Pescadero Escape ...

11-09-2010, 06:07 PM
To be honest after the Hot Toys one I personally can live without a 12" T-1000 from Neca except maybe, as Maulfan said, a liquid metal version or if they made their own versions of exploded T-1000 or skewered in half T-1000, things that HT are very unlikely to attempt for 1/6th scale.

I love Necas 7" T-1000, particularly the way it captures his build, his posture, his stern frown and clenched jaw, but there are paint problems and an unsightly seam running through the middle of his head - I don't think these issues would be corrected at 12".

I guess they could do it for the guys on a budget who want a 1/6th T-1000 but can't afford the HT one (thats not a slag, I'm sure some people have genuine reasons for not paying HT prices).

That said if they did make one I'd support it and buy it despite not feeling a great need for it. I'd also buy a 12" Cyberdyne showdown figure as I find the 7" version incredibly satisfying as a representation of the mini-gun scene and I just can't seem to be impressed by the HT figure holding a mini-gun - it just looks off to me. So I'd love if Neca would jump in there.

Yes, I would have preffered a 12 inch cyberdyne showdown over the final battle 12 inch which we got...

MaulFan
11-09-2010, 07:06 PM
I'd rather Cyberdyne instead of Pescadero for 12". The Pescadero look is basic and the parts easily customizable to make a figure like Sideshow's or Hot Toys, but the accurracy of parts on the Cyberdyne and the overall of the BD offer things you can't do on your own. I've customized a Hot Toys figure for the Cyberdyne look, but the exact bag for the ammo isn't out there, a grenade bandolier with properly scaled grenades isn't out there. A NECA Cyberdyne figure would be more overall accurrate than any custom can be, and of course, there is no other 12" BD figure out there.

a-dev
11-09-2010, 07:17 PM
I'd take 2 12" Cyberdyne showdowns - one to keep fully intact and fully geared up and another to mine for parts to use with Hot Toys MMS117.

Of all Neca's T2 7" line so far that hasn't been upscaled it would seem Cyberdyne Showdown T-800 would be the best candidate. It has instant recogniseability plus major cool factor.

MaulFan
11-09-2010, 07:19 PM
I'd take a Steel Mill 12" too, be nice to have a 12" figure posed in that classic aiming the M79 shot with the pistol up in his right hand.

a-dev
11-09-2010, 07:24 PM
True. I was going to say that a HT figure would be able to pull off that pose with a greater degree of accuracy but not necessarily with the muscle body.

I love the McFarlane figure for that. Give it the Neca head and its perfection IMO for that particular pose in 7".

MaulFan
11-09-2010, 07:28 PM
Well, my wish list with NECA 12" at this point is to mix with my HT's to make a full 12" T2 collection, so basically, anything HT hasn't done, I'd be up for NECA doing so I'd have it.

a-dev
11-09-2010, 07:35 PM
Yeah I probably would too. Its a pity that sales were apparently slow for the 2 12"ers we have. I agree they'll probably stick to just 7" now.

Well least we have those to look forward to, I still want to complete my collection in that scale. I can't wait to see what new versions of T-1000 we get and what ones they leave me to try and put together myself through partswapping, modding etc.

Right now I'm planning to make a steel mill T-1000 who has just taken the fatal grenade shot using the decidedly panicked looking head from the Mcfarlane figure - I have one to spare. I may yet need to create my own more scene accurate donut head should Neca not do that one. Finally I want to put a Neca head onto the Mcfarlane body for those specific (sarah connor inflicted) bullet hits when he almost gets knocked into the molten steel - again if Neca don't do that themselves.

MaulFan
11-09-2010, 07:37 PM
Hopefully the 20th anniversary will be a fun year, it'd suck if all the T2 fun was wasted a year early, not that I mind getting all this cool stuff, but knowing it's a milestone for the film as you get everything adds a bit of extra fun to it.

>sigh< god dammit the joints in the T-1000 figure are brittle. Yet another shoulder broken just now, barely touched the thing. Get on this Neca! :mad:

MaulFan
11-10-2010, 04:50 PM
NECA's shoulders are notorious for breakage, I had 2 of the same Jack Sparrow break in the same way, I'm very heistant to pose shoulder joints on their figures much.

a-dev
11-10-2010, 04:58 PM
From zero problems with the T-800 figures to breakages or visible weaknesses in the joints of... I've lost track of how many of my T-1000s. Shoulders and elbows. Its ridiculous not being able to use the articulation for the very warranted fear of breaking the figure.

MaulFan
11-10-2010, 05:37 PM
I'm sure it's a price paid for the overall quality. To get figures of NECA's calibur without creeping into the $20+ per figure range, I'm sure cheaper plastics are used on parts to save where paint apps might cost more than say Hasbro toys.

While it's a pain and people should just post smaller photos, I'd switch your posts per page view to a lower number, I have to go 3 pages back to see those at 10 posts per page.

I'm at the default view as it is, 10 posts. Nearly 1Meg per photo. It doesn't make much difference now but when you want to see what people are talking about then your browser starts jumping scrolling two miles left and right, one can't help but go [email protected]#!^ ;)

As for the figure. I love the way they have done the leather. If only Hot Toys could have made it as flat as that but I guess it may never be possible... I know it's plastic but it still looks really nice. Maybe unless one had thinner material. Say like the guy doing the Matrix clothes in the customs section.

MaulFan
11-10-2010, 07:50 PM
I think with Hot Toys it was about balancing the quality of the material and the overall cut of the jacket. Maybe they could have found and used a thinner material but maybe it wouldn't lay right on the figure or have the same look to the way light catchs it and all THe only part on the HT coat that really bothers me is the collar thickness, if that part were thinner and flatter to the body, I think the overall proportion of the head and body would look better. NECA's figures do benefit from being fully sculpted.

I was looking at the steel mill t-800 and the likeness seems to be really on pretty much from any angle but straight ahead. kinda strange phenomenon. Still love the figure.

I'm wondering if I should pick up the final battle version too...seems like a waste just for another head sculpt/lack of an arm.

How many figures will be in the next (final??) series for T2? What will they be? are they being made with consideration of partswapping like the others? anything thats not been done before by either McFarlane or Hot Toys?

Macularius
11-16-2010, 01:36 PM
NECA has said that there will be a motorcycle cop version.

a-dev
11-16-2010, 04:43 PM
I wondered was that my imagination. If true I really hope they try a frozen variant - I'd like to represent that somewhere in my T2 collection. Maulfan is doing it in 1/6th but I don't want to use any of my HT T-1000s for that personally.

Other than that the only thing that has never been done by anyone is the T-1000 from the steel mill where the T-800 almost cuts him vertically in half. I'd like to see that but I have a feeling Neca will have passed on that one.

I guess I would like to see a new donut head to update the old McFarlane one but if there isn't then I've just gotten an extra McFarlane T-1000 to make my own McFarlane/Neca custom.

Most important to me out of the next series though is the ability to create - if it isn't released as a basic and complete figure - a clean steel mill T-1000. Neca might consider a straight-up clean steel mill T-1000 too similar to their Galleria T-1000 and do stuff like shotgun hits, the donut head or the split-down side torso instead. This wouldn't be a bad thing, indeed it'd be cool, as long as its possible to combine the torso & head of Galleria T-1000 with the legs of Biker cop T-1000. Galleria T-1000 would ideally be rereleased for this though.

a-dev
11-24-2010, 01:15 PM
OK well if we look at those responses - a tease 'before feb' suggests to me that we won't see anything till january otherwise why not say 'before the new year'. I guess I'll have to come to terms that its another while yet before there'll be anything new on this front.

"At least 3 Arnolds" - so there could be more than 3? Why not say 4 if theres 4 or are they only mentioning what they know they will have ready for Toy Fair?

I think its safe to assume it'll be Tech Noir T-800, Police shootout T-800 and Battle-damaged T-800. I wonder will they tackle surgery T-800 - hes the most scene-specific version they could do outside of naked Arnie and there could actually be 2 of him - one with the bloodied eye like the HT version with him still wearing the punk jacket while testing his arm and another without jacket, with a bandage on his arm and cutting out his eye!

DiFabio
11-24-2010, 01:35 PM
You're forgetting the T2 T-800. It wouldn't surprise me if they included him in this next line up.

Something silly like "CYBERDYNE SHOWDOWN II" where he blows the SWAT teams knee caps off. Kitbashed with the Steel Mill torso and Shootout legs and a new tear gas launcher or something.

New T-1000s have been confirmed as well as all new T1 figures. At this point I'm not worried about not getting possible option/variations of certain characters. We'll probably get a Tech Noir, eyebrows/long hair and no eyebrows/spiked hair as well as the Police Shootout with sunglasses and then a battle damaged head.

Those two are definitely happening, I'm sure of it. And at that point I really wouldn't care about a surgery or battle damage T-800 if we basically had it with the above features. BUT, look at all the T2 variations we've gotten. I'm sure the Tech Noir and Police shootout would have the same legs and they wouldn't stop at only two figures with 3-4 heads. They love to kitbash, so that's probably where a third comes in.

February will be here before you know it. I expect 2-3 T-1000s, atleast 1 "new" Uncle Bob and then 2-3 T1 T-800s. No worries.

MaulFan
11-24-2010, 03:28 PM
I wonder will they tackle surgery T-800

I'd bet good money yes because it's an easy variant, just a different forearm from the Tech Noir figure and BD portrait and you're done. Will the figure be able to look like he's working on the arm, probably not but I'm sure they'll put out a figure with the arm showing just to get more mileage out of the Tech Noir stuff. It's T1's Man or Machine.

Exactly this. I've seen the bigger picture, I just can't figure out the difference. Maybe it's too subtle to properly show it on picture.

What is it that we're looking at, difference in color? Shading?

Yes, the face must be polished with a Q-Tip. thats all.
Maybe on the pictures the differnce is small because the face is polished already on the first picture a little, on the second a little bit more.

believe me the differnce is big and it looks much better, :yess:

With Toy Fair less than a month away, we should be seeing some sneak peaks at the new "The Terminator" figures, right? NECA did say that they'll share a preview before the show in February. Should happen any week now.
Also, does anyone think that there should be a seperate thread just for NECA's "The Terminator?" Personally, I'd like that since this way, all the new news for T2 has its own thread away from "The Terminator" announcements.

I'm really hoping they do two versions of Kyle Reese and not just focus on The Terminator. The Terminator in T1 is iconic and in my personal opinion the best of the franchise, but Kyle Reese is the focus of the first movie and him in his futuristic resistance outfit and 1984 outfit would be unbelievable and probably sell more than the Terminators. more demand for him

I know of Neca's twitter, when people ask about a Kyle Reese figure. the question is avoided or just answered as a maybe. I take that as a yes because it will be a surprise to all Terminator fans. Hands down Neca is doing the best job on this franchise.

a-dev
12-09-2010, 07:27 AM
I wouldn't go so far as to say Kyle Reese would sell more than the T-800. He'd probably be made in less numbers and that number would sell out giving the illusion that hes more popular. On mass appeal across the spectrum of hardcore fans, casual fans and one-off toy buyers T-800 more than likely wins.

That said though, I of course would be all over Kyle Reese figures from both Neca and Hot Toys.

Bought another 12" T-800 Pescadero Escape yesterday @ $22.
So decide to remove the sun glasses of existing one, no eyes paint app inside. With my poor painting skill for his eyes, he looked like this.

finally my neca 12" Cyberdyne Showdown project completed.
total cost: T-800 $22, gatling gun $38, grenade launcher $12 = $72.
Ironically, the gatling gun is more expensive than the t-800 itself.
Unable to find the bandoleer, so have to custom by myself.
Unable to change the hands to black gloved (the pegs too tight), so using custom semi-closed glove on them.
The backpack that carrying gatling gun box is from my Playhouse GSG-9.

Anyway, like i said, i'm ok to see him from distance. Will leave him there for time being until my skill is improved, ha.
However, no time now, as several newly bought figures still in box and others are keep coming. Haha.
Last but not least, for me, the Neca HS is really good, the likeness and overall body proportion are closer to Arnie in T2 compare to the others.

Rubbing a plain qtip on any of your figures isn't going to make the skin tone look better. It just won't. That's evident by the picture you've posted which shows a neca terminator with nothing different despite the fact that it's had a qtip rubbed all over it's face.

Now you see ?:wink1: hope so, lol

Anyway , the second Exemplar has much less similarity, dont know why but likeness is in compare
compare to the first one bad, looks very cartoonish and i cant see much Arnie in this.

This is NECAS qualiy control.
The eye looks much worser, the colour of the Blood is in compare very pale, and, and, and.

But ok the zipper on the jacket has a bad unclean painting job on the first, i changed the Jackets.

Overall it looks much more like T2 arnie. My first is perfect the second is just Ok.

I had of all my NECA figures two copies and for the first time i see significant differences.

I do hope theres another box that the police shootout T-800 is in - Johnny Utah said that they said there'd be at least 3 arnolds - in this pic theres only two - my excitement for which is kinda dulled by the fact that we just got the Tech Noir HT figure who can pull off both the looks NECA have done here. Don't get me wrong I would always have wanted these done by NECA aswell but seeing a police shootout is just more desireable right now.

I think it's the mouth. One thing I give Yulli a lot of kudos for on here T-800 portraits is she really captured Arnie's facial expressions unique to each film, it's a small thing in the grand details, but getting all those little things adds up to the right feel to the head overall. The first Biker shot just isn't giving me the "there he is" feeling like the T2 figures did.

Tech Noir's look good, since I'll not pose my HT T1 in the arm surgery, the NECA will do, just like Man or Machine. That's the beauty of the NECA line, where HT can be a bit pricey to get EVERY variant, with NECA, it's cost and space feasible. It looks like the arm surgery has burning paint on it, though of course it'll look infinitely better on the 2 up than the actual, but, still be nice if the final figure has such details.

Because I collect on a conscious level, meaning I only get 1 of each figure/character, for the sake of using all accessories and not fitting many of them in all possible incarnations and then only having them stand there.
I am enjoing this hobby on a much more active scale and not getting´ em out, outfitting them and that´s it.

T1: Only HT Tech Noir/Chase/Arm Surgery and Police Shootout T-800
T2: Galeria/Pescadero/ArmReveal and (if they´re done, or selfmade) Cyberdyne/Final Battle T-800
And the T-1000.

Since there´re all incarnations possible with them and I´m unemployed, I´m happy and can save money.

Way I figure, surgery will probably come with a head just like the Hot Toys one, the clean Tech Noir will come with a head like HT's and probably the spiked, eyebrowless head from the patrol car. As for the alternate head with the biker, I would guess probably an exposd Endo eye head and the glasses head, and then eventually we'll see a BD biker figure.

Hmm. I think it looks like Tech Noir has only one head, surgery has 2 (probably the bloodied closed eye and the exposed endo eye) while biker has the sunglasses head as default and perhaps the fully BD one as the alternate....

I just can't see why, unless they intend to make Reese in a later series, they'd leave out the BD biker.

If the bikers spare head is indeed the BD one then they'll have compromised a bit - no tears in the clothes or bullet hits, blood anywhere on the body etc.

I don't see removable shades on a 7 inch figure. The 2 up probably is the exposed eye sculpt with glasses added like the 12" Pescadero, but the production 7" will have sculpted shades like the Pescadero. I'll be curious how that works out, I think the size and way the T2 shades go on works ok sculpted, not sure how the Gargoyles will translate.

The ideal scenario, if we're talking just these 3 figures and no more, would have been:

Surgery: bloodied closed eye head/ exposed endo eye head

Police shootout: gargoyles head/ BD head

The do, but at the front of his face they're bigger and seem like more of a gap between the lenses and his face, that's the area I'm concerned with, the T2 shades almost fill in the eye sockets perfectly so they worked out that way on the figure.

They're cheap 7 inch figures so no matter what, it'll be fine, just thinking it won't look so good.

Just noticed, on the shelf below the Terminator stuff, I see two figures that look like they could be Scarface, the black and white suits, I'd love for NECA to do Scarface, the other Scarface figure line looked nothing like Pacino, too cartoony, NECA'd do it right.

Yeah, those are 7" Scarface figures. They're the 18" versions shrunk down. I think they're coming out this May.

Looks the same as their display every year.

Toy Fair isn't a fan convention, it's a press and industry event, that's why they take works in progress and everything, it's to share with the world the things they've got planned for the coming year, from finished and soon to come out items to items in development. Look at the Elder, we saw that a year ago and it still hasn't shipped.

The display isn't geared towards wowing anyone, it's about putting the products up to be seen. Having done these sorts of events at a previous job, often those dislay booths are owned and taken to every show so I'm sure NECA just has it's typical booth it takes everywhere and doesn't worry about stepping it up or anything, they don't need to, we'll be wowed enough by their products.

A company should always show off their product in the best possible way, especially at a Toy Fair were they can attract new distributors.

Hasbro hasn't. NECA hasn't. Mattel probably won't. It's the same every year. It's simply for the toys and designs only. It's distributors to decide if they want to pick up the lines or not.

The displays were much more elaborate in the early 90s, now every Toy Fair for the last couple of years have been bland with plain shelving walls and the marketing logos. They just put them up on shelves and glue them to bases and let the product speak for itself.

I just want to see pics of the actual figures. I don't care how they set them up.

Well, again, speaking from own experiences with shows like this, there is a high price to going ot these things, not that NECA or Hasbro are hurting for money, but with the changing world, it's not that important to make a big show of these industry conventions. It's almost better to have a very simplistic display and let the products speak for themselves and then word of mouth will spread. At a show like this, too fancy of a display would likely give people the impression you dont' feel confident enough in your product and need to dress it up to look good.

Think of how wowed we all were with the Terminators and Predators at Toy Fair over the last few years, the products looked so good, we were won over.

If it were Comic Con, it'd be something else, at a show like that, you need flash to catch attention because there's so much there.

The donut headsculpt is far more exaggerated than the HT one - it looks like they based it on the actual animatronic that was used in the film rather than attempting a more lifelike appearance like HT. Its cool I like having it both ways.

I don't think the biker looks as dead-on as the HT biker looks - it misses the reflectivity in the sunglasses. But still a definite buy.

Not just the reflective qualities of the shades, just overall something doesn't look quite right on the biker head, good effort and will make for a decent 7" figure.

I think the Donut head may be exaggerated more than even the movie prop was to accommodate for the production process, it seems like that side of his head is a bit bigger than it should be, still looks cool though. I'm more bothered by the inclusion of the boot tweak out from the deleted footage than the sculpt though. If it were easy to swap lower and upper bodies I'd get a second biker to use as the legs for the donut head.

Leg swapping is easy, I did it on a pair of T-800s. Though I don't mind the boot glitching, you don't see his feet in the donut head scene and its conceivable that his feet would still have been glitching at that point....though it would be like the HT T-1000 sarah effect not this one.

That's what I mean though about mixing moments. Glitching, even though not seen at that moment, is not farfetched, but the glitch doesn't match the flooring of the scene, they're 3 separate moments merged into one figure. Kind of like the first T-1000s coming with the liquid under his shoe, though that's much more subtle and at least helps add a cool pose options having him in a walking pose instead of just standing.

- T-1000 Steel Mill

I have to admit. I'm kind of spoiled and biased after having the Hot Toys T-1000, I'm just not that impressed with that donut headsculpt. Definitely not as excited as I was during last year's Toy Fair when they unveiled the regular Galleria and Pescadero Sauce head.

However, I love the glitch effect on the boot. It looks well done and there's no doubt in my mind that it will translate well into the 7" figure. I remember thinking the vac-metal Liquid Metal T-1000 wouldn't be as good, but it turned out extremely well.

I'll probably buy atleast two, one to have a regular headed Steel Mill and a second as the donut head. If the upper torso pops out easily between this and the motorcycle cop, maybe a third so it's completely clean.

- T-1000 Motorcycle Cop

I like everything but the helmet. It seems kind of small and oddly shaped to me. Again, this might be me seeing it differently after owning the Hot Toys version.

I hope an alternate regular arm is included. I really never liked that blade arm.

Overall, these are okay to me. I'm not blown away like last years assortment, but that's probably because at this point, I've been T-1000ed out between the previous NECA and Hot Toys figures.

My only hope is that these two figures aren't riddled with quality control problems like the first two T-1000s. If they improve the QC (articulation, limbs and paint) these should be good.

Looking forward to them.

a-dev
02-13-2011, 11:03 AM
As always one worries about the paint particularly on the Tech Noirs punk t-shirt, the surgery's damaged arm, the faces of course, but otherwise the T1s look like perfect sculpts. I'm less worried about the Police shootout now, I think it looks better than it did in that banner. I'll buy the hell out of these and hopefully head off any compulsion to buy more of the HT one than I have already....but I remember saying that once before with the T2s and it didn't quite pan out that way.

MaulFan

Yup, I think this because it's a grail figure for me, but, where HT likes to hype up figures with film releases or anniversaries or new sculptors, having nothing for the T2 anniversary would be strange, they wanted to keep momentum going after Salvation so I get why they started before the anniversary year, but with so little of a wait, it did feel like, why not wait for the big year. I can't imagine any significant production reason to not do the figure, the only reason I could see delaying is for the anniversary, and if we don't get it for that, I don't think we'll get it at all.

So far, the only breaking issue I've had with NECA were the DMC Jack Sparrow, had 2 that broke the same way at the shoulder, and I broke one of the Alien knees but that was because the paint had formed such a glue hold, even with heat I couldn't bend the joint without breaking it, that was the worst QC figure I ever encountered.

It makes more sense for NECA than for HT to not do Reese. NECA's market is a mix of the super die hard fans with plenty of cash and space, and more casual collectors with little money and space. Arnold and villains sell well, Michael Biehn in a trench coat with a shotgun isn't the most exciting figure. Look at the T-1000s, even those seem to push the damage and weapons to make them more appealing than just straight figures of a cop. Hot Toys caters to the super fans with cash, an HT Reese would sell very well.

This doesn't mean that there won't be NECA Reese figures though. NECA does waves of 3 figures, this could be wave 1 with wave 2 being BD T-800 and 2 Reese figures. 1984 Reese is a fairly easy figure to recycle parts with, all they're really have to change out is the loose torso part of the trenchcoat to have the different styles of his green and navy coats and you could have his early and end looks with one base sculpt.

DiFabio

Oh boy,

- Police Shootout T-800

Much, much better than the banner. What can I say, this is a great looking figure. I love the alternate head, I especially love the gun. Other than a battle damaged version, this is pretty much as definitive as it gets in this scale.

My ONLY problem is the leg stance they chose for this, but it might be the angles of the pics. I'm not really liking it, it seems way too wide. The pose for the T2 T-800 was perfect, and the walking stride for T-1000 was great, but this is just too much.

However, I recall people not particularly being fond of the T-1000's stance last year, but it ended up growing on them, so maybe this will be the same for me.

I'm planning on just two of this one (loose, I'll most likely get MOC versions of most of these to go along with my carded T2 Pescadero T-800, T2 Galleria T-1000, and Liquid Metal exclusives). One with sunglasses, another with the missing eye.


- Tech Noir T-800

When I first came across the pic of this figure I was thinking, "this is it, damn, the sculpt and hair is kind of weak" but the more I study the pics, the more I like what I'm seeing. I think once we get this in person, with more flattering lighting and tilt it's head down, this will be a bad ass figure.

Not sure how the gun arms work though. Are the weapons attached to his hand/arm and we have to swap them out or is the extra Uzi there for the display purposes and they'll be separate pieces?

I'm definitively getting atleast three of this one. One as a regular, one for the Uzi and another to use the burned/singed eyebrows sculpt with the rifle.

- Battle Damaged T-800

I love upper torso sculpt and paint on these two (Tech Noir and Battle Damaged) T-800s. It's nicely detailed and the paint apps on the shirt are nothing short of brilliant. I hope the final production pieces retain these details.

The gory arm damage looks more meaty and raw than the Hot Toys version. It's less clean and really looks like he got a shot gun blast to the arm, bloated and fleshy. I really like it.

Both heads look really well done but I'm really liking the burned off/singed eye brows head. The looking to the right looks great and the head overall is just really menacing. It really makes me wish I could have had that option on the Hot Toys version. But it's no loss considering I can get that here.

I'm getting two of this one, one for a regular damaged Arnold and another to throw the head on the regular Tech Noir body for a post burned, rifle toting T-800.

This summer is going to be great.

I've had figures that I thought were fine that ended up breaking. Case in point, my Cyberdyne Showdown T-800. I had it on display with the the grenade launcher for a few months. Then when I went to change it out with the minigun, I turned the left hand and it snapped.

Everyone of my T-1000s has some problem whether it's a broken part or bad paint issues. It was impossible for me to create the perfect one out of the parts I had.

I hope that the quality control for these 5 new figures are on par with the quality control for the first T2 wave. Both Pescadero T-800s are perfect with zero issues and the paint applications on the headsculpt is immaculate. Every Arnold and T-1000 after that seemed to get worse and worse.

Yeah, the only thing that bothers me is that arm. AS for the glitch effect on the boot, I quite like it. Most of the Steel Mill shots of T-1000 in the film are close ups and upper torso shots anyway, who's to say he wasn't glitching during those parts? :lol

Well that's the price with NECA's recycling, sometimes you can find poses that work for multiple figures, they really got lucky with the T2 T-800s, but sometimes they'll work better for some but not all.

I pretty much look to NECA for variety more than overall awesomeness. You can't really top HT's figures for quality, but, with NECA, you get many more variations and representations and it's much more affordable to have them all.

It would be fine if he had the right floor glitching into his boot. As Sean and the others have stated, that glitched foot is from a different area of the steel mill than where the donut head shot took place.

I think we're either a month away, or several. Way I see it, with only one figure really remaining, if you're holding off for the 20th, the best way to honor that is with shipping or preordering around the July anniversary. To ship by then, we'll have to see something real soon, or, it'll be awhile until July to see something. They could always not care about July in any way, but, like I said, with only 1 figure really left, why not target the specific anniversary since they'v had time to plan to do so.

It takes a T1 endoskeleton.

The 2005 Cult Classic Endoskeleton was very good.
The 2009 Endoskeleton had an ugly skull.

But much is not missing a good Endoskeleton.

Neca simply have to sculpt the 18 " Endoskeleton take and improve it minimal.
More details to add.

Repainted 18 "Endos are great.

Hmmm, the stance on the T-1000s looks like its going to be susceptible to some unwanted leaning and even falling over.

Yeah we're gonna have to do a whole bunch of partswapping between 3 figures to have a clean Steel mill T-1000 which guarantees multiple purchasing - NECA will be dismayed to hear that.

Looks like the stabbing finger is extra long (on the prototype anyway) - that be the one he impales sarah with through her shoulder. We already have the right handed stabbing finger from a previous T-1000 which was a shorter blade that he just aims in her face threateningly. So theres the ingredients for that scene.

Damn, I'm gonna have a hard time sussing out what I need to get so I can do all the scenes I want to do. I assumed there'd be another clean headsculpt so I don't think I bought enough Gallerias to cover the scenes from the beginning of the film all the way up to the end. I'm gonna have to take another look at what I do have. With all the HT excitement I kinda forgot. Happy days.

So theres no BD figure representing his condition after he gets run over by the tanker truck and the subsequent chase scene. Wonder does that in fact mean, as I think Maulfan suggested, there'll be another series for T1 with Kyle Reese and one centrepiece T-800 figure. Will they surprise us with a 'boring human'? Would it be worth their while pursuing Biehn's likeness rights? I shall meditate on this.

I think 1 police shootout figure will do me. OK maybe 2 just because. Its just theres not many different scenes or shots that can't be replicated in one go or with a minor reposing with the figure as it is.

1-4 Tech Noirs for use of different guns (including PS's 12 gauge autoloader) and different poses

2 surgerys, one to stay as is and one to convert into the shotgun wielding eyebrowless head from the garage chase.

Theres actually no scene-accurate use for the exposed endo-eye headsculpt they're providing with the PS figure. I can think of only 2 scenes where he wasn't wearing the gargoyles when his face had only that level of damage - the actual eye surgery (but that was before he put on the leather jacket) and when hes sat on the bed reading Sarah's diary - but none of these figures have the ability to recreate either of those scenes, so that headsculpt is pretty much just spare.

Not majorly fond of the stances for either the T-800s or the T-1000s to be honest. They could all potentially have leaning problems. Its alright for the Tech Noir T-800 (probably the one the pose is tailored for), passable though not ideal for the Police shootout and plain wierd for the surgery figure - unless you do the partswapping needed to give him the shotgun.


:lol:lol

not too short

My meditation was inconclusive. With extreme bias I'd like to say Yes, Neca absolutely should pursue making Reese.

Great additions to the NECA Terminator army. I see little to no problems with these figures.

NECA stated that there will be three waves in the new Terminator line.. so if what they revealed was wave 1.. there are two waves left.. im sure two versions of kyle reese, a bd T1, and a new endoskeleton are all planned

I don't remember them saying that but cool if true.

I still wouldn't necessarily bank on Reese though - it could just be more T-800s such as BD (obviously) but also Eye surgery or figures based on promo images like the iconic film poster.

I think they all look great, I just wish necas paint apps were better. I only ended up buying a few figures from there T2 line because the paint on all of them was horrible. Even the ones I bought still look pretty bad.

The Rider
02-14-2011, 12:51 PM
I also hope that the paintjob is better than T2.

What does that now come out yet ?
A future War Kyle Reese, a 1984 Kyle Reese, a new Endoskeleton, a battle damage Police Shotout T-800 ?

I hope that Kyle Reese has the Michael Biehn Likeness.

Hmm, maybe NECA and Hot Toys will treat Kyle Reese the way they treated T-1000? I remember when T-1000 was just a dream for the Hot Toys and NECA lines and then 2010 BOOM, maybe late 2011/2012?

I certainly hope so! They made the 12 inch pescadero and final battle so I think 1 12 inch T1 arnold is needed!

Sorry to go off topic but regarding the Terminator figures -

Tankman, any chance the Steel Mill T-1000 might come with an extra clean headsculpt (same one as Galleria figure) and a normal left hand? And could the motorcycle cop have a normal human left arm? They seem to be light on extras and these would be the most desirable additions if it were possible.

^^ posted this in the NECA 1/4 scale predator thread that hopefully Tankman will see it and answer one way or another.

Will any of them be 12"?

a-dev
02-15-2011, 01:11 PM
Probably not. Despite the differing markets NECA probably feels that 1/6 is Hot Toys territory. If memory serves they announced the 12" T2 figures before it was known that Hot Toys had gotten the license. Though they went forward with those 2 12"ers they didn't release any more, no more T-800s and no T-1000s....so it seems unlikely.

That would be really bad, i have their 12" t800 arnie (pescadero) and it looks really good. I'd like a t1000 to go with him :) (although i have hot toys t1000 parts coming my way from hk :D).

02-15-2011, 01:31 PM
People asked Tankman if there'd be a 1/6 Predator from NECA and the answer was always that HT had that arena covered so I'm assuming the same applies to Terminator.

viezure
02-15-2011, 04:28 PM
And that would not be true.

Price wise, people would rush to buy the neca 12" figures, be it predator or terminator.

a-dev
02-15-2011, 04:42 PM
...I'd probably still buy them. Problem is the paint and skin texture isn't much of a step up from the 8" figures.

A 12" Cyberdyne Showdown T-800 would have been cool though as the HT figure doesn't look quite right holding a minigun IMO. Plus it'd provide accurate gloved hands and grenade bandolier that people could use with their Hot Toys....well maybe not the hands.

I'm really satisfied by HT's T-1000 but perhaps having a 12" Galleria T-1000, perhaps given the added bonus of appliable bullet hits and the split head which HT didn't do would also be rather nifty.

As for the T1 figures - yeah I'd buy 12"ers of those.

Christ, another T-1000 breakage - this time a neck joint. Truly awful QC on T2 series 3.
