Thanks to Sachiel for pointing it out on Twitter it seems that the Steel mill T-1000 will have a second head - presumably a non-BD one but I wonder will it be exactly the same as the Galleria?

NECA says on twitter that Reese will happen if the T1 Arnies do well.

No Sarah or John Connor though.

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 02:57 PM
Yep, just as I figured. It's also worth noting that they said they HAVE his likeness and rights to a Biehn Reese. Seems like a pretty done deal to me. Kyle Reese will be the T-1000 of The Terminator figure line. 2009 was pretty much all about the T2 T-800 Arnold as far as products went. 2010 was T-1000. This year is obviously 1984 Terminator goodness.

Next year, 2012 will most likely be the year of Kyle Reese figures. If NECA is doing them, Hot Toys will too.

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 03:07 PM
They also hinted about an 18" T2 T-800 Arnold.

Platty
02-24-2011, 03:13 PM
Yeah I believe so, too. Traditionally NECA have shown the Terminator figures or revealed they have the likeness and then shortly after HT has shown theirs.

a-dev
02-24-2011, 03:18 PM
If the HT Reese weren't to happen until 2012 I hope that would be because in 2011 they're finishing their T2 line. I want something Terminator from them this year...the Tech Noir kinda straddled 2010/11 as far as I'm concerned so I'm not counting that

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 03:34 PM
I could see Hot Toys revealing a Battle Damaged T2 T-800 for the anniversary this summer, then showing a Police Shoot Out T-800 to finish of both films.

Then in 2012 we see Reese. Or maybe Reese after the battle damaged T-800 and then finishing the Hot Toys Terminator line with the Police Shoot Out?

a-dev
02-24-2011, 03:36 PM
Yeah but *breaks into moan* show it NOWWWWW and release it this summer!!!!

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 03:50 PM
That may very well happen. I know I'm craving more Terminator goodness right now. I actually felt like owning another Hot Toys T2 T-800 until I saw that it's up to $250-$300.

I'm kicking myself for not just buying two when they were what, $170? Atleast I have one, and a perfect one at that. I surely made up for it with the Tech Noirs.

I won't make the same mistake with a Battle Damaged and the Police Shootout though, if they ultimately happen of course.

This summer will be fantastic. NECA figures will hit retail, we'll finish up the NECA T2, get a taste of NECA T1, have Hot Toys information/pics hopefully. It'll be good.

MaulFan
02-24-2011, 03:51 PM
Yeah but *breaks into moan* show it NOWWWWW and release it this summer!!!!

Pretty much too late at this point, if they aimed to have it in hands for the anniversary at the start of July, it'd have to go into production right about now, and even then, that only gives about 4 months for production. I'd think something more complex like that would be like 5-6.

a-dev
02-24-2011, 04:06 PM
OK well I really don't care that it be specifically timed for the anniversary down to the month. I'd still like to see something sooner rather than later though.

MaulFan
02-24-2011, 04:12 PM
That's neat, but I'd rather a 12" liquid metal T-1000, or even a Cyberdyne 12" T-800.

MaulFan
02-24-2011, 04:16 PM
Oh believe me, I badly want it, it's my 2nd most wanted figure anyone could make. I'm riding all my hopes on the anniversary being the reason we haven't gotten it yet, so I've been hoping they would maybe even be timing it's shipping or reveal to coincide with the specific release month of July, at this point, if that has any bearing, it'll be a reveal. If they unveil in April I won't care, I'll be psyched, I just feel like at this point, it's either being saved for the anniversary or it's not coming.

a-dev
02-24-2011, 04:19 PM
^Same.

I presume the 18", if it happens, is going to be the Pescadero one again. Not sure I need that...or any Neca arnie at 18" really.

The main reason I'm getting the Neca 1/4 scale predator is to have that sculpt with a decent paintjob the likes of which just isn't happening at 8" these days. Likewise the 1/4 alien. But for Terminator I've got Hot Toys for the great paintjobs. Plus Enterbay are releasing a 1/4 scale T2....

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 04:19 PM
That's neat, but I'd rather a 12" liquid metal T-1000, or even a Cyberdyne 12" T-800.

Or all of them. There's so much they could do that would most likely sell.

A cheap 12" Liquid Metal T-1000 (REALLY round out the 1/6 options of T-1000), a 12" Galleria T-1000 (to go with the 12" Pescadero T-800, maybe include a full sauce head), Cyberdyne 12" T-800.

18" versions of Pescadero Arnold and Galleria T-1000.

Hell, now we have T1 figures. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw 2-ups or 18" figures of the Police Assault T-800.

I would literally buy it all. The only thing they need to do is up their quality control, that's the only problem I have with them. Make it so the figures are better made and the paint applications less sloppy and this stuff is gold.


^Same.

They said it would most likely be Pescadero over the T1 options since it is supposedly more iconic.

MaulFan
02-24-2011, 04:23 PM
I could see a 12" Biker T1 if HT hasn't unveiled one by the time they'd put it into production.

As for 18" figures, other than the full BD or Cyberdyne, I just don't think the NECA T-800s would look that interesting at that size. Enterbay will probably have some posability to it for options

DiFabio
02-24-2011, 04:27 PM
I bet it's in stages of figure design and production as we speak Maulfan, that and Reese and the Police Shoot Out T-800.

They did say way back when in an issue of MILK that if the Sarah Connor sold well, they would make T-1000 and a DX T-800. We ended up seeing T-1000 just a mere couple of months later and we can't say that it didn't sell well with people buying atleast two of each.

NECA said in 2009 that if the T2 T-800 sold well, we'd see T-1000, look at what Series III brought in in 2010. Now NECA is saying that if the new 1984 Terminators sell, we'll see a Reese.

This stuff is a done deal. The demand is there. The licensing is there. It's just a question of when.

a-dev
02-24-2011, 04:39 PM
Well the Predator fans (myself included albeit less than terminator) have just gotten announcement, pics and specs of a much wanted and seemingly inevitable figure. How could T2 BD or T1 police shootout or Kyle Reese be any less wanted or seem any less inevitable? So yeah I'd agree it has to be a question of when.

a-dev
02-24-2011, 05:03 PM
I just don't think the NECA T-800s would look that interesting at that size.

Same. The 12" Pescadero sorta fulfils my need for a larger scale version of that figure, and the BD one, sure it would be the more interesting option but it would have the same 'too erect' problem that the 7" and 12" have. I dunno, I'd possibly be a sucker and buy but I wouldn't be hugely excited about it.

MaulFan
02-24-2011, 05:25 PM
Without knowing full detail on how HT is able to do T1 figures, I can understand possible licensing issues affecting choices to do more T1 figures, but T2 is a free for all as NECA's demonstrated, as John would say, figures from that film are easy money.

02-24-2011, 11:14 PM
I'm now going to buy the NECA terminator 1 figures so they will make a reese. Now since NECA has the license it is pretty much set, Hot Toys does to and we will being seeing a HT reese soon

I can't believe that I haven't posted in this thread yet!
Needless to say, I'm unbelievable excited about these figures. Finally, 6 inch scaled figures from one of my favorite movies. True, I do have the Hot Toys T-800 but that's more of a display piece. I'm afraid to really move him fearing breakage. Now with NECA, I can go wild. Posing them any which way I please and being able to enjoy the amazing sculpts.
Great job, NECA and Tankman! They pretty much look spot on to the movie counterparts.

The Sculpts are very good, but the Joints on the Shoulders and Ellbows are very ugly.

I'm glad they included that regular head with the T-1000. It'll be kind of strange owning EVERY possible version (and I'm not counting getting split down the middle or any of the bizarre shape shifting versions) of old Mercury Man in both 1/6 and 7" scales.

How is it strange? Well, last year I would have never thought it was possible.

Using this photo, I would like to point out the fact that T-1000's Biker Cop with sword arm is NOT mixing parts from different scenes... After the helicopter crash, and T-1000 takes the Tanker Truck... he stabs the truck driver with that arm. They are just creating a very quick scene, while still providing us with an interchangeable regular left arm.

As for Donut head with two pointer fingers... stabbing Sarah scene.

He looks better there than in the toyfair shots. One can never guarantee anything for the mass produced final product of course. And you just know that sword arm is going to be bent in package on a lot of them. Still, this will be a nice one for the 7 or 8" range.

I don't know. If they're as sturdy as the hook arms I don't see why they'd bend. I didn't have any problems with those hooks. The blade finger however is a different story.

That arm should be fine.

I love the first Movie, perfect killer machine.
Arnie's best acting performance.
Very nice sculpt from Neca.
I love the pale face and the dirty look.
Still get goosebumps and fear when i see the malignant Terminator from first part.
I would prefer 1/4, because i have already three Schwarzenegger figures in 1/6

The one pictured won't be 1/6, its only going to be a 7 or 8 inch figure as far as we know so far.

I have one on order along with 3 of each the other two figures in series 1. I'm a bit meh about endo's at this scale now. Aside from correcting that awful head from the previous one I don't see how a small 8" figure can be improved.

Who are you kidding, if it's better, you'll buy it a-dev. :lol

I'm pretty sick of the Endos myself but if this one is indeed improved, I'll have to pick it up. Hopefully the 4th time is a charm. Each Endo so far has had it's positives and negatives. There's always something that keeps it from being perfect be it quality control, articulation or sculpt. I'm starting to feel like Goldilocks.




Once upon a time, there was a little boy named DiFabio. He had always wanted a great Terminator figure collection. Pretty soon, he came upon several 8" Endoskeleton figures.

At the table in the store, there were three figures. He opened the first figure in what appeared to be a toy from Mcfarlane.

"This body is not perfect" he exclaimed.

So, he opened the figure from NECA

"This one has a nice base but it breaks easily and the eyes are too big!" he said

So, he opened the last figure, which was also a NECA.

"EYES ARE TOO SMALL AND IT LOOKS ANGRY" he said angrily and he threw it against the wall.........

When will they get it just right?

a-dev
05-03-2011, 12:29 PM

I'm quite predictable when it comes to the toys from these films. Yep I have one on order sight unseen and despite the fact I'm pretty happy with my NECA/McFarlane kitbashes.

Your goldilocks story sums the 8" endo situation pretty well I think.

DiFabio

I also think they photoshopped the head (which is quite common with promotional pictures). Notice how small and squashed it looks, and yet in the sample it looks perfect. Either way, the features for a 8" figure looks spot on.

It definitely seems improved to me. If the plastic is indeed better, like they said and the head actually turns then this should be the best Endo yet.

They got Arnold's likeness good, but with the spikey hair heads, they did not get the T1 look good, possibly worse than HT did. It looks to me like the T2 head wearing Gargoyles and not a T1 sculpt, the hair just doesn't look like T1. I haven't seen any official T1 sculpt that has gotten that hair well, the best I've seen is the Sideshow PF.

For now I will continue to come back to Xeno's sculpt, the face is a bit soft in detail, but he really got the ahir style right, maybe a bit short on top, but hte sides are great.

As far as getting the T1 hair style, this sculpt is still unmatched in my eyes.

That's why I said the hair, I think HT did great on the face area, but their hair was lacking. Xeno's was the best T1 Arnie sculpts before HT, and even HT isn't perfect but the best available to us, but everyone, maybe because of watching T2 and T3 too much, goes more T2 style with the T1 spiked hair in sculpts, forgetting that it wasn't a spikey style but just the bangs singed off, the read of his hair being as long and full as it was in the Tech noir scenes.

I thought about at the price of the new Predator which is around 80 dollar. Improved sculpt and paint for 80 bucks. I don't think Neca has a future at the lower quality areas in 1/4...I hope this is one of the reasons why they went up with the classic predator.

I suppose its fair to say that their paint apps sort of lose likeness but there is something about a NECA sculpt that reminds me of something based on a comic series. It could be the paint. Aside from the obvious reused T2 sculpt certain features (jawline, lips, eyes) look exaggerated. Again for $15 and being that it's Terminator related these are a no-brainer.

The facial dimensions are better yeah. I think it was the movie poster that images of the figures were compared to and someone did a morphing trick on it. NECAs one translated better. The HT inevitably gives an overall better impression though with its high-end finish and paintjob.

As with the ol' P1 comparisons though, when in doubt buy them all.

This NECA Terminator vs. Hot Toys Terminator headsculpt debate needs to stop, it's been done to death already and it doesn't prove a damn thing. They're both great and they both have small "flaws".

The sculpts fit the scale and type of figure.

No plans at the moment. I would guess they might do the Police Shootout if HT doesn't come out with one before they'd have to commit to putting one out, but i don't see them doing any other 12", especially if they're not doing T-1000. They may not even have rights to do T1 in 12".

I don't think so. Everything Tankman says in the Predator thread points to NECA quite deliberately avoiding 1/6 scale where HT have it covered. They abruptly stopped any further 12" T2s once the HT line began. I'm sure we would have otherwise at least seen a T-1000 by now to go with the Pescadero T-800.

thenammagazine
05-11-2011, 03:05 PM
Arnie's T-800 > T-1000. Doubly so from a marketing/sales standpoint. Besides, I thought the T-800 12" sold relatively well.

MaulFan
05-11-2011, 03:30 PM
The first T-800 came out before HT even had a proto shot leaked, I wouldn't have bought mine if I'd known HT's was coming. The second still had the benefit of no competitive piece on the market.

Even with good sales, NECA seems to shy from putting resources to items that have competitors, which is why our best chance, and would be nice, is the Police Shootout, there is no other 1/6 figure of it out there, not with Arnie's likeness, it woudl own the market. Tech Noir has been done and better so there's no point in doing one of those.

Failure to do so would be ____ing retarded, especially with more Iron Man, Johnny Depp and Bruce Lee on the way.

Either way, I wouldn't mind NECA making a 12" 2-up Police Shootout, Tech Noir or any of the T-1000s, market competition or not. I like having the blown up versions of the 7 inchers, they're just really cool to own and display side by side.

In a perfect world I would have a 12" Police Shootout from NECA and a new 12" Police Shootout from Hot Toys.

No plans at the moment. I would guess they might do the Police Shootout if HT doesn't come out with one before they'd have to commit to putting one out, but i don't see them doing any other 12", especially if they're not doing T-1000. They may not even have rights to do T1 in 12".

Once you have the likeness rights, i dont think it matters what scale you make.

Yeah as far as I know McFarlane had the rights to 8" and NECA could only do 18". Thankfully NECA are now going to do a proper 8" Robocop line. Can't wait to add them into the Alien, Predator and Terminator mix.

I would agree. We'll just wait and see now if they let the T2 20th anniversary pass by without any announcement. I haven't lost all hope but if by next year we haven't seen anything I'll be ready to declare HT fully retarded - even despite the great stuff we've received so far.

No need to call Voorhees a gay boy for a differing opinion.

This NECA Terminator vs. Hot Toys Terminator headsculpt debate needs to stop, it's been done to death already and it doesn't prove a damn thing. They're both great and they both have small "flaws".

The sculpts fit the scale and type of figure. The portraits on the NECA figures are well done for the $15 dollar, 7" action figures like wise the portrats on the Hot Toys portraits are well done for $150, 12" high end collectible figures. What one company has problems with (quality control for NECA, proportional issues with Hot Toys) the other makes up for (sharp detail proportions for NECA, superb paint applications for Hot Toys).

Just shut up and buy both.

I didn't seriously call him a "gay boy"... :dunno After newb, I had to come up with something. So it was either scrub, or gheyboi :lecture :)

I don't think so. Everything Tankman says in the Predator thread points to NECA quite deliberately avoiding 1/6 scale where HT have it covered. They abruptly stopped any further 12" T2s once the HT line began. I'm sure we would have otherwise at least seen a T-1000 by now to go with the Pescadero T-800.

I could have swore I saw a 12 inch T-1000 that wasnt HT somewhere. Has any other company done one.

You're possibly thinking of Sideshow's one. OK for its time but outclassed in every way by the HT one. I'm not sure if theres ever been an All-Sculpted 12" T-1000 before. I don't think so though.

7" figures are loosely scaled at 1:12".

I don't think so, because if 1/6th figures are on average 12 inches tall, then if the 7 inch figures were 1/12 they would be half the height of the 1/6th figures, when in reality they are taller.

Just because the bike is 1:10 scale does not mean the figure is.

When a company makes a one sixth scale figure of a person, they just round the number. They just assume everyone is 6 feet tall, which we all know is far from true. Same with 7" figures. NECA & McFarlane figures vary from 6"-8" depending on the character. If a Predator is nearly 8 feet tall in real life, then he would be 8" as 1/12 figure and 14" as a 1/6th figure, which are the approximate measurements of NECA and Hot Toys. Do the math and you'll see.

Macularius
05-24-2011, 08:18 PM
The standard for humans in the "smaller" scale is 7 inches, and the standard in 1/6th is twelve inches... So the 7 inch figures aren't 1/12. 6 inch figures are 1/12 like some 6 inch GI Joes however.

Again...the 7" figures are loosely scaled at 1/12". There is no actual technical scale for them, but if you wanted to be that technical...it would be about 1/11.

Theres a few different 1984 versions of Kyle they could do because isn't his coat from earlier in the film different from the one later in the film? Plus things like bandaged wounds, bloodied face etc. Perhaps even one without a coat on with just that sleeveless vest. However I don't see NECA making multiple variations of Reese. I'd say the Tech Noir one is the only guarantee.

DiFabio
06-04-2011, 05:03 PM
Yeah, isn't it like a blue coat that he picks up after the Police Station?

There's like 2-3 variations of Kyle Reese that NECA could make,

- Future Kyle
- 1984 Kyle

And that's it. Sure it'd be interesting to see a "battle damaged" Reese or one without the coat, or the blue but would that really be that popular? His variations are no where near as intriguing as the T-800 or T-1000.

a-dev
06-04-2011, 06:24 PM
Yeah essentially. There probably wouldn't be quite enough interest for NECA to consider it worthwhile covering all the possibilities with Reese.

I don't see a particular reason why it didn't try that. I know it can't form complex machines with moving parts but it wouldn't have to recreate the internal T-800 mechanics just the external appearance :dunno Even when the T-800 took on visible surface damage all you could see was exposed metal not working joints, pistons etc. Why couldn't the T-1000 mimic the appearance of that?

Especially when Cameron considered an Arnold CSM 101 T-800 vs Arnold CSM 101 T-800 early on for T2 before 1991.

It would have been interesting, it's always been one of those things I've thought about. I could just picture the T-1000 mimicking him at the Steel Mill to fool John (surely the T-1000 heard John's distress when Uncle Bob told them to leave) like he did with Sarah then having a T-800 vs "T-800" fight scene.

a-dev
06-04-2011, 08:16 PM
Well I'm glad they didn't do it, I'd rather see Robert Patrick T-1000 versus T-800 like we got than Arnie versus Arnie.

Cameron probably didn't do it because he didn't want to add that kind of confusion at the end of the film, not to mention the headache of getting 2 Arnies on the screen at once in combat against eachother. With the 'in-movie' explanation being the aforementioned T-1000 ''can't form complex machines'' even though there would seem to be a way around that.

A scenario I've pondered briefly aswell is what if a T-1000 was created in Arnie's model 101 image. Probably no reason Skynet couldn't do that, simply a case of why would it.
