Why T1000 didnt take the appearance of T800 may be explained by the official novelisation of the movie I remember reading long back (A cousin took the book to read when I was back in school and 'misplaced' it) Apparently the the T1000 though could mimic it tried to keep to the cop appearance as its original mass was most comfortable with that build. It was mentioned in the book (in the pescadero hospital scene) That even after killing the fat guard he took his appearance to pass the security checkpoint but soon got back to the cop avatar because it was more comfortable in it as distributed bulk in the fat officers avatar was not efficient for its movement. I expect in a fight with the T800 (Arnie being much largely built) to mimic the T800 it would have too much free space within itself thus reducing a LOT of efficiency in fighting.

I personally like the T2 T-800 paint job a bit better then the Tech Noir..maybe its missing more of a wash to bring out some detail over that flat skin tone paint..i can't complain too much, i like the figure and will take pics in a bit. The paint apps on the T-1000 looked sharp to me, Endo looked alright too.

*edit*

Just took a look at dudes pics of the T-1000 on Spawn boards, his looks like a sh't paint job..the three T-1000's i saw in person had good paint apps.

Thanks for the great pics, Valfar!
Overall, the figure looks really good. The sculpt, as usual, is solid. Paint work is normal NECA quality which I've come to accept. Not too sure why NECA chose to give him rosey cheeks though.

When Series 2 arrives, I plan on doing a pretty simple custom with the Police Shootout version. I'm going to assume that the leather jacket is removable. If so, I'll remove the vest part of the jacket leaving only the gray t-shirt. After that, I'll look for a set of bare muscle arms, preferably NECA, that I will replace with the leather jacket arms of the T-800. Then I'll simply swap the 2nd head that comes packed with the police shootout version with the exposed endo eye. A simple custom for the eye surgery scene.

Wow, these aren't looking too good. I had faith in the T-1000 but even that one looks awful. I don't know if it's the paint or what but these look like crap.

The first and original T2 figures are so much better.

I'm at a loss because I was really excited when I saw the pics at Toy Fair. That and the Tech Noir really had me excited. But these in hand pics just don't look good at all. The Tech Noir looks really, really bad.

It's a great figure. It's the best Endo NECA has done. The only problem I have with it is when you light the eyes the light kind of shows through parts of the head instead of being secluded to just the eyes. I also know I have one where the jaw has trouble staying closed. I mean it will close, but it's a _____ to make it "stick" so the endo's mouth isn't wide open.

I don't agree doing that. That so called "Chrome" spray is just silver paint. Do you have some pics of your Endo painted with this chrome spray?
Appying a true chrome finish to an Endo is not an easy process as you are dealing with laquer based paints & plastic parts that do not mix well with each other, but once done the outcome is like night & day.

Found them all at my local comic shop today. T-800 and T-1000 are pretty cool. I think i prefer the T-2 Arnie headsculpt though.

The new Endoskeleton is nice, the silver paint seems a bit more shiny and looks closer to chrome than the previous versions. The new headsculpt looks nice, and the fully shut jaw looks good, but I'm gonna have to say I still prefer the original cult classics Endo's head.

Some areas on this new head just seem... i don't know, a little off to me, especially around the upper mouth/lip, nose and "cheekbone" areas. Also the one I got has ALOT of black paint on the head, and it looks weird with so much weathering on the head, and only a little weathering on the body. If you are a fan of the Endo it is definitely worth getting, but I still prefer the first release Endo's head.

Thanks for posting those Rider.

I think the reviewer is a little over-enthusiastic. A lot of NECA polesquatting there if I may borrow a phrase from Nam! :D I also wonder if he's heard of Hot Toys.

I'm definitely buying these, I want to complete the ol' 7" collection and these are as essential as any.

T-1000 looks good, the headsculpt has grown on me. I used to think it looked a bit wierd, too small or something. However it certainly looks like RP. The sculpting is very good over the whole figure. Predictably it seems the sword arm is warped in package. I'm not sure what purpose the bending knees are supposed to serve* considering theres no hip articulation but we'll take it I guess :dunno Lastly I was truly expecting his arms to break when the reviewer was demonstrating the articulation. My T2 series 3 T-1000s broke under far less stress than that!

I'm glad to hear about the improvements on the endoskeleton. I thought the paint looked better alright and sure enough the headsculpt is pretty good. I'm also glad they got rid of the needless opening jaw - just another area for NECAs QC to fail - and not a feature I ever used anyway. The hoses and connectors going into the head look a bit ridiculous in that vid though. Something will have to be done about those. All in all however I'm glad I ordered one of these.

edit - *hmm just thought of what the bending knees on the T-1000 might be for - a possible future frozen T-1000 variant?

Reviewer himself has stated previously that he's heard of Hot Toys, but thinks that they're out of his price range. Hence, he's always thought of NECA as 'superior' and tries to ignore Hot Toys's figs in general.

Sounds more like he's just trying to justify not being able to get them, I suppose. :dunno

Some people still resist them because they can't help but think of them as 'dolls' what with the superarticulated bodies and the real clothes. To them they are not real Action Figures because their definition of action figure is limited to entirely sculpted figures. Much of the Spawn board holds this view. I used to be the same way back when the original Hot Toys T1 figures came out. I was aware of them but didn't consider them an option. Back then I hadn't started collecting anything in 1/6th I don't think, not even the likes of a McFarlane 12" figure. Plus the real clothes reminded me of Action Man which I was never into as a child, preferring instead the 3 3/4 GI-JOE, He-man, Turtles etc. Anywho glad I moved on from that view - though obviously not to the total exclusion of sculpted figures. I still love these things, I just wish the paint and QC was better.

Interestingly enough, I have the exact opposite feeling for my excitement levels. I actually anticipate the NECA versions a lot more than the Hot Toys counterpart. I've had my "The Terminator" T-800 sitting on my desk for the better part of 6 months without hardly giving him a touch, mostly in fear of accidentally breaking a $200 figure. On the other hand, I've been thoroughly enjoying the NECA Tech Noir T-800 for the past week tinkering with various poses and display options. The same holds true for the T-1000. I have been anxiously awaiting the Biker Cop version since it was debuted at Toy Fair, and this may be viewed as blasphemy to some, but I personally felt the NECA sculpt was able to capture Robert Patrick's likeness better than the Hot Toys attempt. Obvisiouly, I'm not taking anything way from Hot Toy's unmatched polish and finish on their product especially since I do own several Hot Toys figures. However as far as my personal enjoyment levels are concerned, NECA will always give me so much more fullfillment.

a-dev
06-27-2011, 08:42 AM
I do have a little fear of breaking my HT figures. It happens. However in my experience its far more common with NECA. I literally cannot touch my series 3 T-1000s without a part breaking, just normal gentle attempts to move the arms. I bought loads of them and its fair to say MOST, not merely one or two, broke. I think thats ridiculous no matter how cheap they are. And if these are toys intended to be played with...good luck with that. Well theres that rant again.

With likeness, I think both HT and NECA managed to pull it off pretty well. While I think NECAs standard T-1000 is a bit too longfaced, I like the shadows created by the cheekbones and that clenched jaw. And in the biker helmet as I said that one has grown on me, I wasn't fond of it at first, but I now think its a pretty good likeness.
I think the HT T-1000 looks dead-on in the biker helmet and sunglasses and close to perfect without. I couldn't really tell you what I think keeps it short of absolute perfection because I don't know whereas I know where the T-800 sculpt falls 'short' - pun intended. :wink1:

I still enjoy the NECA figures - all sculpted figures continue to have a charm for me - I can't wait to be able to display them properly - mine are in total disarray right now.

i'm not impressed with these at all, the t-1000 has a cut mold line going from his chin across to his helmet on the left side of his face looks like a deep scar, and a very sloopy paint job on his helmet, the t1 arnie, has a deep indented mold line on his neck like a knife cut it, that's not suppose to be there, and sloppy paint around his hair.

I do not understand why Neca has become so bad.
Previously they had a good to very good paint job and great accessories.
Now, poor workmanship, bad paint and almost no accessories.

I think it's a shame how great sculpts are so lost.
I am considering whether I should buy the 7 "figures.
All the pictures I saw were very bad.


I would be happy to do if neca would make a 18" Tech Noir T-800 with very good paint job, very good workmanship and a better Facesculpt .

I was a big fan of NECA when the first couple of T2 waves hit. That reveal in 2009 at Toy Fair with the Arnold variations was phenomenal. I bought them all as well as the 12" and they were damn good. Then came the T-1000 figures. I can't even explain how pumped I was for them last year. Then when I finally got them, my god were they awful.

Not talking sculpts either. They're great, as always. The quality control and paint apps are the problems. They're absolutely horrid. Out of all the T-1000s I bought, I don't think I have one good one. They're all pieces of ____. I ask myself, is something worth owning if it's sloppy, fragile and brittle? Nope.

To be honest, I was sort of excited when NECA revealed this T1 stuff but the final product just looks really bad to me. The pics I've seen, hell even those reviews make me see that this new wave is no better than the last one in terms of quality. ____ it.

A few years ago, I might have bought these to "collect them all" and sure, I'd love to get the 7" T1 Arnies (Despite having 12" Hot Toys versions) but these just don't cut it as far as I'm concerned. It may sound harsh, but these look like garbage to me. Par that with the all of the quality control issues I've had and it just isn't worth it. A shame too since I'm a big fan of the way NECA goes about their design with these figures in terms of sculpt (Kyle/Tankman) variety, and just the ideas and style behind them. The final product though just ____s on all of that.

On a side note, I don't think I've been spoiled by Hot Toys. I've always realized that I was buying/dealing with different styles of figures/collectibles. For awhile I was more impressed with my Pescadero Arnies than I was the full T2 Hot Toys figure. The QC problems have quickly changed that view. You don't "get what you pay for". I know these are cheaper than Hot Toys, much cheaper but even at the current price tag the final product you get is junky ____. Some people seem to have forgotten that things weren't always like this. These toys were well made at one time even if they weren't the most detailed or accurate.

Increase the production value, then we'll talk. Though, I think I've finally outgrown toy collecting for the most part. Scratch that, I have. Save for a few grail Hot Toys figures I've ceased buying mass produced retail stuff for good. No more Mattel, no more Hasbro, nothing. There was a time where this was gold, (I still love the older figures I have). But now the quality is just piss poor and I just don't want to collect anymore.

neca's qc has sunk very low,just as mcfarlanes did a few years ago.
i hate to see this happen, because neca has some great sculptors, it's not fair to them or to us who love and admire their talent.

neca makes the charactors we want and love to collect, but what good is it, with low grade q c., that breaks when you try to pose it, or is already broke in the unopened pack,or has stuck joints,, loose leg joints and can't stand on it's own, warped, mismoulded parts, 2 left feet, , sloppy paint,etc,etc-

i know these same flaws happen with every toy company to an exstent.
but every since the alien,predator, and terminator lines has come out, it's been happening more than ever, and getting worse every series,and these are the one's i collect most
i hope neca can get back on track soon.

i'm going to hope that the p2 line gets better with qc, if not i'm done with neca.

Where it concerns the 7" range I think that guy Fortknox was onto something. His expectations were too high but his frustration, its increasingly clear, is justified. There are problems with these figures which don't appear to be getting better. Its hard to take crappy paint apps AND warped accessories AND figures that if they aren't already broken in package they break as soon as you try to use their articulation. If good paint isn't possible (and I don't see why 'decent' paint can't be achieved - it used to be) we should at least be getting tough, durable figures. They're cheap but not that cheap.

Now, I don't have the latest figures yet so I'm only going on the fact that their paintjobs once again seem to be $h!te. It remains for me to see if they start breaking on me. I'm hoping T2 series 3 was just an unfortunate blip in that regard.

Honestly, in regard to bad paint applications, NECA isn't horrible by any stretch of the imagination. Have you looked at other figure offerings from other companies lately?
I'll give a good example. Mattel, the world's largest action figure company, should concievably have the best quality plastic and paint based soley on the company size and resources. Wrong! Mattel cheaps out on every aspect of the business by grossly over-using a handful of base bodies across a number of various toylines. NECA, on the other hand, gives us brand new sculpts when launching a toy line. Of course, NECA also reuses parts but if you're doing the T-800 from the 1st Terminator movie, would it really be necessary to sculpt more than one pair of boots and legs for the same character from the same movie? Of course not. Their reuse of certain body parts makes sense. Also, Mattel casts practically everything in the solid colored plastic. Imagine having a Terminator figure's head cast in shiney flesh colored plastic, effectively ruining all the small details of the sculpt. Personally, I'd rather have a bit of paint slop here and there compared to cheaply cast solid colored plastic figures. And it isn't just Mattel. Hasbro, number 2 in the action figure market, also reuses bodies in their Marvel Universe line and also casts figures in cheap shiney plastic. Just compare NECA's Ghostbusters figures to Mattel's awful Ghostbusters figures. All 4 of the Ghostbusters use the same base body and their heads and bodies are cast in the color of their uniforms and heads.
Finally, let's discuss cost. Mattel charges $17.99 for their cookie cutter DCUC figures, and $20 for their "premium" cookie cutter Masters of the Universe and Ghostbusters lines. Hasbro now charges $8.99 for a 3 & 3/4 inch Star Wars & Marvel Universe figures also following the cookie cutter recipe.
Really, what I'm trying to say is, despite some QC issues from NECA, that little itty bitty company still delivers premium sculpts, decent paint applications, and some of the most desired properties for an excellent price ranging from $12.99 to $14.99. Personally speaking, sure NECA could improve, but honestly, things could be SO, SO, SO much worse. So, for that, I'm extremely thankful NECA is around and delivering the goods that I absolutely love to collect.

You've got a point.
But there are also very good from Hasbro Star Wars figures with great paint jobs.
Where there are differences as large.

In any case, it could be much better with Neca.
Earlier figures were often more accessories, better processing and a better paint job.

When the Terminator figures, the jacket is too bright, pants too brown.
The colors match those in the film.

Next to skin color often seem bad and lips and eyes look dead.

There is need for improvement.

Not to mention the horrible painted skull of the 22 " alien and the bad silver of the 18" Endoskeleton.

Yeah those things have always bugged me a little about the Neca endoskeleton. More accurate sculpt than McFarlane but it reduced the detail in the hands, feet and thighs plus it exchanged being able to move the legs backwards and forwards for the sideways movement the McFarlane one didn't have. Isn't there a way for us to have both?

Saw these in person, my god are they awful. The paint jobs make the T-1000 and Tech Noir look like cheap porcelain china dollar store dolls or something. There were about 2-3 of each, not one stood out as "good". Good luck to those that bought them online and will get blind cases without inspection.

I will say though that the Endoskeleton looks surprisingly good. Makes me regret ever buying the previous T2 2009/2010 Endos. By the looks of it, it's the best one yet. With that said though, I'm endoed out, no need for more.

Found the T-800 and Endo at TRU and FYE yesterday. Didn't pick them up but the paint wasn't as bad on the Tech Noir T-800 as I thought. Looked as good (or bad) as their T2 stuff at least. The Endo looked good and the headsculpt is so much better than the last. I really want to pick this one up. That being said though one of the Endo's had the red paint almost completely missing on one of his eyes. There was a small red dot the size of a pin head and you had to squint to see it.

I picked up Tech Noir T-800 and Moto-Cop T-1000 today at FYE in NE Phila PA. I have to say as far as paint slop goes they are no where near as bad as I thought considering all the negative posts about it. The only issues I really saw were some unevenness of the black between the helmet and visor on the T-1000 and they had 4 of them, all like that. And on the T-800 the face/hand paint is very pale, way too pale. Maybe he's the ghost of T-800! Another thing that is odd is they used a black chain on the coat. The new Endo is awesome, really great. Head sculpt and paint so much improved over the prior one. I would have picked it up if I did not already have the other one. Oh and I got a Neca BD 12" T-800 there for $15 on clearance! Glad I waited.

Picked up the tech noir and biker cop yesterday in a movie store. Honestly after all the negative nancy posts on here I was expecting literal ____, but after seeing them in person they all looked pretty good. The bodies of the T800's are very nice, however the eyebrows and hairline are indeed messy. The biker cop T-1000 has weird looking glasses, and the paint on the right side of his helmet is a little sloppy, but nothing compared to what I've heard. The new endoskeletons looked ace too, I love the new headsculpt and the "chrome" is nicely done. I just wish they would redo the terrible thigh articulation!

Blade3327
07-09-2011, 04:49 AM
I customized the T2 Endo by trimming down the length of the piston pipe along the thighs to get more articulation there. It helped, but now that thing's basically junk as he's sitting in a pile with the other T2 figures I collected. I picked up one of each character last year at SDCC (and got the exclusive) -- and at this point, the only two that are still in perfect condition are Arnie and the liquid metal T-1000.

I kind of think I'm getting out of NECA's Termie stuff, but maybe checking my local FYE and seeing that Endo will change my mind. If he's cool enough, I might get one just to display solo. Same goes for the NECA Predators. I'll collect everything they release from the classic movies, while selling the Super-Preds and the botched Classic. Paint apps are too 'meh' and the designs aren't worth the disappointment to me. Bring on all the P1, P2, A1, A2, and A3 stuff, though! :D

First off, I'm glad I found this thread. Now, regarding the Tech Noir T-800, I was wondering: can anyone could recommend a particular paint to touch-up Arnold's hair? My figure's hair isn't too bad overall other than being a tad on the too lightly painted side, but there's a tiny flesh-colored speck on the right side of his hair that seems to standout, especially when my desk light is on in the evening. So, if anyone can recommend a particular model paint for this touch-up job, I would be very grateful.

Regarding the T-800 Endo, I actually prefer the McFarlane Movie Maniacs Endo to NECA's latest effort. Compared to the McFarlane version, the NECA Endo looks more like a Hasbro toy or a cheap, "play-ready" figure. Even my wife commented that the NECA Endo looks cheap. I'm not sure if it's the paint or the plastic used, but I'm just not impressed. However, in the interest of full disclosure, I did pick up two of the NECA Endos because I wanted the plasma rifles for my McFarlane Endo.

Now that I have two plasma rifles, my McFarlane Endo matches my life-size Sideshow Endo version 2.0. :yess:

I really prefer the 7" scale for such figures. Figures larger than that remind me of dolls and kind of give me the creeps.

Heads up for any one looking for Terminator Series 1 at Toys R Us. I discovered that Toys R Us doesn't put their NECA Terminator figures with the rest of the NECA figures in the same isle. Instead, TRU tossed them on the same pegs as their Playmates Terminator Salvation junk the next isle or 2 over. I found 3 sets of Terminator Series 1 over their with the peg stickers so I know it wasn't just misplaced product but a conscience descision by TRU to place the NECA figures with the Playmates trash.
After I sorted through the set I wanted, I took the remaining NECA figures back to the NECA isle and hung them up on an empty peg. Remember, if Series 1 & 2 sell well enough, Reese will be in Series 3. I don't want both casual figure collectors and NECA Terminator fans to miss out on series 1 just because TRU stupidly decided to place these figures with the junky Salvation figures.

so those who have the good fortune of getting the ones with bad paint, are you ashamed to display them and have your family and friends comment on them?

My international confidential secretary thought the new T-800 endo looked pretty cheap compared to the McFarlane version. I'm going to repaint this NECA endo though once I finish repainting some other figures.

I think the old T2 line was better.
The T-1000 looks good for the scale, decent paint and very good likeness. The Tech-Noir is significantly weaker,
little resemblance and overall it looks cheap and dead.


The Police Shootout looks very good and is definitely the best of the three.

from this version a 18" would be great

Humans arent Necas stenght, but the police-shootout looks pretty good. He doesnt need a healthy skin color like Police shootout. I mean look how arnold looks in the movie after the eye surgery, pale and inhuman.The skin color varies in the movie very strong.
I think the figure has the potential to represent the movie or the scene great, tech noir in contrast almost not at all.
This is the difference

I think every Terminator fan here is surprised at that.

They could still happen, HT are still making Predator 2 figures and they've had that license seemingly since forever.

Cases of the next wave of these are available to preorder at BBTS

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=NEC11712&mode=retail

Eventually got the first wave the other day. Not as badly painted as I feared, still not great but not an horrific mess either. For some reason the Tech Noir's eyes are barely there, very ghostly. And combined with the very stark eyebrows he loses his likeness a bit. Sculpt is top notch though.

The new endoskeleton is very nice but I already knew the headsculpt was ace. Decent paintjob on mine. Usual crappy, useless articulation on the NECA body though, I also prefer the McFarlane in that respect and obviously the detail of the seperated pistons on the forearms and calves and the cut-out sections in the thighs - areas where the McFarlane one was always better than each of the NECA iterations so no change there. NECA wins on accuracy (when does it not?) but theres still those elements of the McFarlane I prefer.

My Biker T-1000 has slight paint imperfections here and there but is otherwise good. Great likeness in that helmet.

From NECA's website today:

"NECA’s mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore! Oh wait, no, we’re not mad at all. What we are is unbelievably excited to bring you our brand new Terminator Collection Series 2 7″ action figures! I get those two mixed up all the time.

For the ultimate Terminator connoisseur, Series 2 is some of our best Schwarzeneggering yet! We’ve got 2 (that’s TWO — as in, also the number of the series) T-800 action figures, including the first-ever figure based on the original 1984 Terminator film. Amazing how well the cyborgs age, isn’t it?

That’s the Battle Damaged Tech Noir T-800, and it comes with a rifle and an extra head, just in case one should happen to get blown off in a massive firefight. Both the Police Station Assault T-800 and the Steel Mill T-1000 also come with two heads and other movie-accurate accessories (read: “guns and Linda-Hamilton-shoulder-piercing knife fingers”). All three figures stand 7″ tall and come in clamshell packaging."

--------

Who the hell are they hiring for their marketing these days? Why would you say "TWO" and thereby imply the sequel and not the original from where the two referenced figures originated from? And what's with saying this is the first-ever figure based on the original film? Are they just forgetting about the Tech Noir figure now?

I'm very perplexed. Regardless, this doesn't impact my interest in the figures, I simply can't wait for them.

Yeah I think NECA announced they had the T1 license before HT but obviously HT got their figure out lightning fast. Who knows who actually had the license first. Either way the HT T-800 is what I consider the 'first ever' ''fully licensed'' figure based on The Terminator. NECAs is certainly the first ever small scale figure based on it.

Funny they mention the T-1000s 'Linda hamilton shoulder-piercing' finger hand despite the fact they aren't making a Sarah Connor to go with it. Perhaps they have McFarlanes old figure in mind.

NECA nailed the T1 endo, even in this scale
Great scuplt.

Holy crap, that is THE 6" Endo.
Now they "just" need to re-do this Endo in 18" with this paintjob I´ll buy it.
No figures under 12" for me anymore...

got my T1 Police station assault figure today,(sorry no camera to post pictures) and i'm very happy with it, the paint is good on mine, no slop,a big improvement over series 1 t1 figures,skin tone a little pale but not like the series 1 one,but t1 's skin looked a little pale in the movie,
i don't really care for the head with eye damage ,that comes with it,
as i perfer head w/ sun shades anyway, the guns look good, nothing specail about them as far as paint washing etc.
hope everybody else gets a good one like i did.

( after checking again, more closley, the shades do have plastic under the shades, but not as noticable as the t2 figures with shades)

The Gargoyle sunglasses are more of a wrap-around style though are they not? So they would never have had that.

Heres hoping that T-1000 doesn't fall asunder like the T2 series 3 ones.

Do these things indeed come with alternate parts? Extra head for T-1000? Extra forearm for BD Tech Noir?

KoBE
10-23-2011, 01:43 PM
The T-1000 also comes with a normal head and a pointed index finger hand for both the left and right sides.

The Police Station Assault figure comes with an alternate head that has a damaged eye (with the endoskeleton peaking through).

The Battle Damaged Tech Noir also comes with a normal head, an extra right forearm, and right fist (open), and a left fist (closed).

Excellent, thanks KoBE. I was wondering if any of those parts would get dropped in the final production figures. Glad they weren't.

On paint at least. So far theres no telling whether or not they'll break if you attempt to use the articulation. I'm particularly interested in that T-1000. Major brittle plastic issues in series 3.

I thought it looked wierd too actually. The whole face looks peculiar in some shots.

T1000 is solid but the Police Shootout disappoint strongly. Very weak performance, almost no resemblance with Arnold.
The only thing i like is the clothing, looks accurate on both.

From the Battle Damaged i must see bigger and more natural pictures (normal lightning).
Last little hope, lol

The old T2 line was better ;

The old T2 looks way more like Arnie. The pictures you posted from T1 remind him, not more.
Saying he looks like Arnie doesnt reflect the truth.
Maybe you have a bad one or the photos arent natural enough or the scuplt is just bad. Its hard to say but he definitely doesnt look like arnie on your pictures.

huge differences sometimes.
One figure looks great, the second mediacore and the third like crap.Necas QC isnt the best, luck is all we need. :rotfl

A example

The second

two dead eyes, lol.
Even small differences in paint can mess up everything

with the 18" Predator the same game, denture positioned completely different on every figure..
Paint on the forehead varies greatly and, and, and.
Never seen so big diffrences on a neca figure before.
I had already eight "closed mouth" predators. At the moment i have three. I can post pictures tomorrow to show how big the differences are.

I hope Neca produce with Series 2 new Series 1 Figures with better Paint Job and Quality control.
The Quality control on the Tech Noit T-800 is catastrophic.

I saw two figures with lots of bright and dark spots on face.

The Rider
10-30-2011, 01:54 PM
At your Tech Noir Battle Damaged T-800's bloody eye is painted right?
On many images is also blood on the nose, this is wrong.

Has an idea how to use the glasses as shown in this video could repainted ?

I like the sculpts on the BD Tech Noir and the T-1000 - dead-on. Not so much the Police Shootout T-800. The hair might aswell be the T2 style, just isn't long enough for T1 from what I can tell in pics and vids. The warped T-1000 stabbing fingers are no surprise whatsoever.

I was ___king terrified watching him do the articulation demonstration, particularly on the T-1000. This is why I got pretty annoyed in the predator threads when I effectively got accused of mishandling my figures causing them to break - compared to the guy in these videos I'm a paranoid freak about using the articulation. My T-1000s joints just crumbled under far less roughness than that guy appeared to put his under.
