Well he said he simply used black gloss nail-polish. Sounds pretty easy.

Gotta reiterate I love the sculpts on these - pretty much dead-on T-800/T-1000. Still not sure about the Police Shootout version but I still don't have it so....

What is black gloss nail-polish ?

Makes he this Repaint with a brush ?

I no understod why Neca make the sunglasses not glossy like the Pesacdero Escape.

The Likeness and the Joints of the Polise Shootout are not so pretty.

Staractionfigures in the UK seem to have them in too though I'll keep my BBTS order as it works out cheaper for me.

http://www.staractionfigures.co.uk/category/Terminator/Terminator___Original_Trilogy,i.html

Looking forward to them. Wave 1 wasn't too bad at all. Paint was neither great nor as bad as I was expecting and so far no breakages.

Was a TRU about an hour ago. I don't keep up with these but after reading this thread I see that I saw series 2. They look rather nice. The one thing I didn't like were the Police Station glasses. They look like a block of matte plastic, which is what they are they just didn't look good.

I picked up the police shootout T-800 and the T-1000 today.

The T-1000 is a Christmas gift so I have to wait for him but the T-800 is fantastic!!! Great likeness and the paint was pretty good. I love the bullet wounds on him from where he got shot during the most epic pork roast ever!

It'll be cool to be able to set up the car chase T-800 out of the BD Tech Noir figure - where his eyebrows are burnt off but both his eyes are still there in working order and he uses that police shotgun. So far I have no representation of that brief 'look' in my collection. Granted he won't be sitting in a car but whatever.

Hmm. And yet the T2 ones looked just fine. Yeah obviously they're not translucent but they're gloss black at least. Should be an easy fix though - gloss black paint :dunno And I'll have another use for that - the gauntlets on HT Batman.

My T-800 has good joints too. No problem posing or fearing breakage.

I had a T-1000 from the T2 series that had his arm break off the first time I handled him. I just glued him back together but I was disappointed. It was my first major QC problem with NECA and I have bought a lot of NECA (It was my main focus in my low end collection instead of spamming super heroes)

Its a pity the only small scale T4 figures were those crappy Playmates ones.

We've got T1 figures from NECA, T2 figures from McFarlane and NECA, and T3 figures from McFarlane - No T4

At 1/6 we've got....a T1 figure from Hot Toys (OK 3 if you count the MMS01 and 02), figures from T2 and T4 figures - No T3


I had a T-1000 from the T2 series that had his arm break off the first time I handled him. I just glued him back together but I was disappointed.

Don't be surprised if the other arm breaks on that one. Shoulders, elbows and neck joints have all broken on my lot.

Good to know. The warping T-1000 fingers were predictable enough I just hoped there wouldn't be any unpleasant surprises RE: the guns. The only Plasma rifle I've gotten from NECA that didn't have a drooping barrell was the cool one that came with the Battle Across Time T-800 - that was actually a great figure, not something I would have asked them to make but I'm really glad to have it since they did.

Hey guys I'm quite new to the terminator scene. Always wanted to get it and I got hooked to how awesome my first purchase looked which was the Terminator series 1 T-800 Endo (with the terminator 1 packaging).

I plan to get the rest of what I missed out from NECA in the terminator series but I have some reservations:

1. I plan to get the Terminator 2 endo Battle damaged piece (the one with the minigun) - Any thoughts on whether it's a good piece to get?

2. I also plan to get the T-800 endo from T2 Judgment Day. Is it worth it to get it or is the one I have from T1 already better so it's not worth getting?

3. This is a follow up to question 2 depending on the answer, should I get a 2nd T1 T-800 endo due to how awesome it is?

4. I want to get the 18" one as well but I'm aware it's being sold in 2 different coloured boxes. One in yellow/orange and one in blue. Which one should I get?

Any input would be great guys

1. The only good thing about the battle damaged Endo is the minigun

2. No, it's not worth getting. The T1 Endo is infinitely better than the T2 version. The T1 head turns, has a better sculpt, better plastic and the barrels of the plasma rifle don't droop. The T2 on the other hand can't turn it's head (try it, you'll break it), has an inferior sculpt, poor plastic and has a better rifle.

3. Sure, especially if you don't get any of the crappy T2s.

4. Someone knows the answer to this on here. I want to say yellow/orange but I can't remember which box the better one came in. I know I have the better version but don't recall the packaging color.

Thanks for the detailed response which answered almost all my questions DiFabio. I have a feeling the blue box was the reissued one based on some research but I can't be too sure until someone clarifies it for me here so that I can make an informed purchase. Do you know what kind of improvements were made over the previous 18" release?

Do you recommend me to get the battle damaged minigun figure even though the only thing good about it is the minigun? Or should I skip it altogether?

Basically you're saying I'm not missing much from both the T2 Judgment day endo releases and I should just get the extra T1 T-800 endo and the light up 18" reissue?

a-dev
11-15-2011, 10:45 AM
I have the earlier released 18" endo which has an orange flame at the bottom of the box. Not sure about the packaging on the rerelease but I do know for definite that mine is not the rerelease. I saw the rerelease in Forbidden Planet, was tempted to get it but for me it wasn't enough of an improvement to bother, plus some had wonky jaws.

Now that Terminator Series 2 is out, and fantastic, I think NECA needs to plan, or announce if they have been planning, Series 3 & 4. I entered this in the wrong thread yesterday by accident, but here are my ideas:

Series 3: Split Torso Steel Mill T-1000, Frozen Steel Mill T-1000, Full BD T1 T-800.
Series 4: BD Sarah Connor T-1000 with feet melding with floor and hole in stomach, Surprised T-1000(shot with grenade launcher, before Pretzel Man), Kyle Reese 1984 and 2029.
I would also like to see a NECA Pretzel Man T-1000 in comparison to McFarlane's version.
Next, I think it is time that NECA makes a T2 Diorama: T-800 and Frozen T-1000 on the ground "Hasta La Vista, Baby" scene.
For the most part, they are varriations of existing figures.

a-dev
11-18-2011, 11:58 AM
I really treasure that old McFarlane Pretzel man figure. Personally I don't think NECA will do that one - they'd really have to do new legs aswell as obviously a new upper section because the current legs would never hold it up with their close stance. So an entirely new figure where NECA prefers to recycle parts.

I'm with you on the diorama's idea but....again, the days of NECA diorama box sets are possibly over. I've love a bunch of steel mill related dios though to recreate the various T-1000/T-800 smackdowns.

Truth is, so do I. I have my Mcfarlane Pretzel Man on the shelf with all my NECA T-1000s, but I feel they would add articulated elbows and a ball joint head, plus better color on the liquid metal. But I know you're right, NECA loves to recycle parts. Pretzel Man was kind of an afterthought, a dream. If nothing else, I want those listed in my Series 3&4. As for the diorama, they could easily sell two diffedrent figures in the kneeling position(T-1000 with broken off limbs). Don't actually need a complete "Box," but the ability to put the scene together properly. Also, I really thought that they could have made the Frozen T-1000 a SDCC Exclusive just like the Liquid Metal T-1000 SDCC Exclusive, a different paint application on a figure from the current line, but they missed their opportunity on that one...

I saw these figures for the first time in person last night. Not very impressive (going by first impressions on initial look). Paint looks average or below average. I will still purchase the two t-800 (T1) but will pass on the T-1000.

The other day I was looking at figures from my stored boxes. I happened to come across NECA Hellraiser “Angelique”.

http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_101303a.htm

I was so impressed at how good and clean her paint application was on her face. Eye and lip make-up everything to the “T”!!!

Agreed..the undamaged T-1000 head looked like crap. But after owning the Hot Toys version who cares....I will not display this 7 inch figure.

Hot Toys are my new interest and what I display. Most if not all of my NECA purchases remain in package. I have no interest in opening 7 inch figures. My interest is knowing I own it (I know crazy). Having said that I will be making the Terminator purchase.

I was thinking that I was starting to get crazy because my friends sais "they are amazing!! you're wrong!!" and the other day I was going to buy the new tech-noir and the T-1000 with the "donut head"... and I said WTF!!. Of course I didn't bought them, the first and second series are amazingly better pained than those new ones. :/

Solution? I will not buy more neca figures with this bad paint jobs.

Do you plan on using the extra head? The gold with this figure is the Donut Head itself!

As for those of you not getting these figs just because you don't like the quality of the paint jobs, I jerk my head up and say "Oh come on, REALLY?!" Do you really want to deny yourself figures from these classic scenes? I have been waiting for these for a long time, and I am ecstatic that they are finally out. The only things I see wrong with my set are the T-800's eyes/glasses, and a bit too much blood on his face. But I can fix the eyes/glasses, and who cares about the "bloody eye" T-800 head? I am displaying that figure with the Endo Eye Head from Police Shoot Out. As for the T-1000, other than the extra "Normal" head, the figure is PERFECT! I don't give a crap about the normal head, who in their right mind will display this figure without the Donut Head? That head is the reason to guy this figure! It goes great next to Pescadero T-1000, the two times he was shot in the head with a 12 Gauge.

I don't enjoy criticising them at all. As always though, great sculpts are being detracted from with messy anime paintjobs where other figure lines seemingly have fine paintjobs.

Still, when I get them in hand I never tend to think they're quite as bad as they appear in pics.

Pretty much. I'm sure as hell not criticizing these things for fun, and I care just as much about how they look as what they're supposed to represent. When I see great sculpts being ruined by declining paint quality (compare the Terminator figures to the Terminator 2 figures), I feel the need to say something. Randy ____ doesn't seem to think there's any problem with what's happening with the Terminator and Predator figures, and seems to be operating with the mindset that as long as every movie character ever created is made into a figure no one should care about the paint. I do.

12-04-2011, 12:26 PM
For one thing, he blocked me as a twitter follower for pointing out that bad paint jobs were ruining great sculpts. The other thing is that things continue to get worse for this line; after the obvious decline in paint quality between the last Terminator 2 wave and the first Terminator wave, something should have been done to fix the problem before the next wave was released, but instead they've declined further.`
Somebody who really cares might make a statement like, "we understand that paint quality has been an issue for the Predator and Terminator lines lately, and we're working hard to correct the problem and bring you the best possible figures you can find." Something like that.

I have more than 300 figures on my collection, from mcfarlane, neca, and other brands, but Neca lately is making bad paint jobs, I'm lucky because normally I cusomize the bad painted figures... but hey, I'm living in spain and every figure costs me 25$... and it "hurts" me more when the painting is awful than ever.

I'm not enjoying that, because I love preds, terminators and other ones since I was a kid (now I have 27 years old), I just only want that Neca makes a good quality paint jobs again, If not... I will save my money for other figures.

My last custom was that (masked classic pred (http://otakutoys.blogspot.com/2011/11/toyreview-predator-classic-custom.html)) and I'm starting to get tired of buy bad painted figures from Neca. Yesterday I saw the new Iron Maiden figure... oh, man... was so cr*appy thing, with an horrible painting on the face and teeth. It's a shame, seriously, Neca was cool in the past, now is like a manufacturer of "chinese poor figures".

And Randy is blocking users in twitter... that's "amazing".

Do you really want to deny yourself figures from these classic scenes? I have been waiting for these for a long time, and I am ecstatic that they are finally out. The only things I see wrong with my set are the T-800's eyes/glasses, and a bit too much blood on his face. But I can fix the eyes/glasses, and who cares about the "bloody eye" T-800 head? I am displaying that figure with the Endo Eye Head from Police Shoot Out. As for the T-1000, other than the extra "Normal" head, the figure is PERFECT! I don't give a crap about the normal head, who in their right mind will display this figure without the Donut Head? That head is the reason to guy this figure! It goes great next to Pescadero T-1000, the two times he was shot in the head with a 12 Gauge.

So to quote Kermit The Frog from his recent Saturday Night Live Weekend Update skit... REALLY?

im with you man, these people that aren't buying the figures because there not perfect are not real terminator fans. yes i wish they where perfectly painted, but dam im still going to buy the ____ out of these figures.

Why would I want to spend my money on ____ products? Who gives a ____ if they're from a certain scene or not...:cuckoo:

Hmm... maybe because these certain scenes are the reasons these figures are being made. Why else would NECA make so many variations of the same characters? Each figure is named after the scene to which it takes place: Pescadero T-800, Man or Machine, Final Battle, Tech Noir, Battle Damage Tech Noir, Motorcycle Cop, Police Station Assault T-800... all specific designs from specific scenes. All of us fans "give a ____." These certain scenes are made to satisfy us nerds who want these specific scenes to be represented on our shelves. They are not "____" products, but if you truly believe that they are, that just leaves more for us to collect. Thanks for your help. If you want to debate your perception of the quality of these figures, feel free. But if you really want to argue the reason they exist in the first place, please have a better understanding on what you're negating.

Got mine the other day. Pretty happy with them. The T-1000 has this wierd scaly paint job on his face but only when viewed right close up.

Anyone had any breaks on the Donut head T-1000? The joints look like a different plastic to what was used on the woeful T2 series 3.

The likeness on the eyebrowless Tech Noir headsculpt is great. Not so much on the Police Shootout headsculpt with the Gargoyles - something is just off there. The other one is good though with exposed endo-eye.

So, I just ordered The Police Station Assault off of Amazon and it looks great. I've heard bad things about the Tech Noir, though...is the paint job really that bad on most of them?

Is it going to be a pretty big gamble to get a decent looking one ordering online?

a-dev
02-12-2012, 02:30 AM
I can't speak for 'most' but the one I received from BBTS is about as good as one can expect. Yes the blood goes a little onto his nose, some of the hair on the back of his head nearest the skin is painted in skin colour and like the first wave of T1 they aren't painting the whites of the eyes - probably because this was a problem area on previous figures and when it looks bad it looks really bad. I'm loving the paint on the eyebrowless, eyes looking sideways head though I have to say. The likeness on that head in particular is great.

As for hopes about Toyfair news etc - They obviously have Kyle Reese in mind which is great. I assume the BD version of the T1 T-800 will be an anchor-type figure to go with him and then the T-800 is done. I'd like if they'd put out at least one more T-1000 aswell though - based on when the T-800 cuts him in two from his shoulder down to his waist. Then we could finally get that damn metal bar that they both used on eachother which neither Neca or Hot Toys has provided - and which is surprisingly difficult to find any real-world object to represent it.

Ohhhh. Interesting that they're still not done with T2.

Yeah you're right about the T1 figure - it could only be the BD version of the T-800.

The T2 one...well theres a few left that they could do. Sarah Connor yes - specifically I'd like a steel mill version with that shotgun, it'd go well with the donut head T-1000. If not her then the split-down-side T-1000 would be cool. I don't believe that has ever been tackled by anyone before. Or they could do their own version of the pretzel man T-1000.

There is so much little nick picks on NECA and other toy lines. Nothing is absolutely perfect. You bug the figures because you are a fan on the movie, or game genre. Toys now are so much better than they were even 5 years ago. sculpting accuracy everything. even the packaging of these figures makes the item better. yes, there are some items that have been fragile, but most of these thigns are not meant to be played with like 90's kenner figures. for me, so what if the paint is not perfect on the terminator line. even Reese which is one of my favorite characters of all time, i will still purchase many of these because i am a fan. and as a fan you have to be grateful that these things are being made. one would never think Ash 'chainsaw version' from Evil Dead 2.. Reese.. Hicks.. all the terminator figures.. aliens.. predator 2 lost tribe.. i could go on would be made or even made again

a-dev
02-16-2012, 10:03 AM
First and foremost I want my figures to not break if I walk past them. With NECAs QC on the T-1000s from T2 series 3, not only were they not fit for 'play' - they weren't fit for even the odd reposing by a collector. If you tried to repose, it broke, simple as that. They might aswell have made it a statue because after you glue the joints back together thats what it ends up as. Figures breaking at a glance really is something that should be complained about unless they're being given away for free.

About the paintjobs - well if figures from other lines are getting good paintjobs while Terminator and Predator don't - I would be curious as to why that is. If its true, that is kinda annoying. But I have to say I always overreact when I see the in-hand pics. When I eventually get the figures myself I'm generally pleasantly surprised. The same issues that look so terrible in photographs just don't bother me as much in person.

I agree with what mosts are saying about inconsistantcy. Anybody that owns most of the horror line figures (freddy, jason, etc) can see what NECA is capable of. I dont understand why the quality of works drops so low on certain lines. And on top of that...yeah they need to make figures that dont break so easily. It seems like every predator I have has frozen joints...some of which Ive broken clean off just barely trying to bend a fricken elbow. NECA needs to be more consistant.

Personally, I think NECA does a fantastic job for a $15 figure.

Sure, if you have the opportunity it's better to search through the figures to find the one that has the best paint or fewest flaws, but that's usually not too difficult. I've always been very satisfied and very happy.

I just wish they'd do more 12" versions to go with their 7" line.

Have you bought them all so far or are you being selective? You're probably best not ever opening the T2 series 3 T-1000s...if you do they will crumble before your eyes.

Strangely enough Kyle Reese was the very first Movie Masterpiece Series HT figure so they must have some interest in him. Ideally we'd get an all-encompassing 1984 version - maybe 2 heads, one clean and one bloodied, and both the coats he wears in the film.

Yeah I did it briefly about 5 years ago with 7" figures but in the end I just prefer them in packaging. They display better if that makes any sense.

As for the figures i've bought say 95% of them. I only bought tech noir and police station shootout from the last series.

:lol:lol:lol a reservoir dogs movie figure, but no gun....

what's funny is that it did bring a little cigarette, a lighter and a cigarette box..

Thanks for that. Maybe I did see that and totally forgot about it. Well thats cool, obviously they weren't just going to put out a single-figure wave. I would have assumed the BD T1 T-800 was a given but not necessarily T2 Sarah. I'd welcome her, preferably a BD steel mill version with that shotgun to go with the Donut head T-1000.

The Rider
07-14-2012, 02:12 PM
The T-1000 is boring.
The Idea of an freezed T-1000 Figure is great, but this figure is only an Repaint.

Kyle looks better than the first pics, but this is not good enough.

The Problem with the T-800(on the Foto?) is the poor silver.
Looks not like Metal and the Haires are to short.

For a possible 18" version this must fixed.

An 18" T1 was sooooooo great.

Renbel
07-15-2012, 09:43 AM
Great pictures ! Well, sure the likeness is far from being a sucess but I'm glad to see that, as usual, NECA paid attention to the most minute details: I hoped they would attach the piece of string Reese jury rigs, and here it is ! And I think they also improved the paint job on the shotgun, it's not as bland and plain as the T800's shotgun in the Police Shoutout for instance. So I guess it's a mixed bag, but a bag I'll still buy - I've been waiting for a Kyle Reese figure so long that I'm not going to snub this one, even though it kinda fails in the likeness department. I'm taking time to look at it now, and I think they screwed up the superior part of the face - if you hide the top of the head with your hand for a minute, you'll see the mouth sort of ressembles Michael Biehn's. The eyes and the hairdo are what ruin it a little, though.

a-dev
07-15-2012, 02:12 PM
I honestly couldn't tell you what it is that I think is throwing it off. I thought the hair was OK, so we're opposite again on that one!
I guess because of the lack of Kyle Reese figures over the years I'm not as used to looking at his face to really pin down in my head what it takes for a figure to look like Michael Biehn.

DiFabio

Those shots of Reese actually make it look a lot better. Before it looked like one of Hasbro's old Luke Skywalker headsculpts or a zombie with a decaying nose.

Renbel
07-15-2012, 03:17 PM
I honestly couldn't tell you what it is that I think is throwing it off. I thought the hair was OK, so we're opposite again on that one!

Lol, agreed, this is getting to be a habit :p. I remember his hair as being more spiky, if you see what I mean, as opposed to the kind of 80's-anchored cut he sports here. One thing on which I whole-heartedly agree with you though is that the lack of Reese figures in the past numbed our critical judgement - we lack comparison and gauging. But you're right, it's difficult to pin point what exactly is wrong with it. One would have to actually take a photo of Michael Biehn and see the differences, but it takes a somewhat artistic, aesthetic fiber I lack.

Now, to be fair, I guess some likenesses are easier to nail than others. Arnold for instance, has a unique, trademark face which must be easier to sculpt. I'd say it's almost caricatural - what I mean is that his traits are very marked and defined. For Biehn, however, the characteristics of his face stem more from an agglomeration of details, in his looks, in the little scar he has on his chin and so on. And this is precisely what T1 hinges on: the opposition between a monolithic, gigantic antagonist and a more weak, sleek - human, simply - figure. And this may be more difficult to get, especially, as someone already said, for a figure this size. Just a wild guess.

Excellent shots. I'd photograph my own NECA collection except due to the poor light in my flat I'd have to use flash and we all know what effect that has even on Hot Toys figures.

Did none of your T-1000's break Maulfan? In the end every single one I bought suffered at least one break. Repaired as many as I could recently. I'm talking elbows, shoulders and heads.

For anyone who is trying to fill some holes in their collection. BBTS has a PRE-ORDER warehouse find of T-800 Battle Across Time, T-800 Steel Mill, T-1000 Pescadero and T-000 Gallaria Mall for $59.99. Not a bad price. I got my order placed just in case.

So far my wishlist includes: T2 T-800 on Motorcycle (more like a figure/statue), Tanker Truck Damaged T-1000 (also more like a figure /statue), T2 Future War John Connor, T2 Sarah Connor (Neca's version), T1 Future War Kyle Reese, T3 T-1, T3 Sergent Candy, T3 Final Battle T-800. This should hold us over a few more waves of practical figures.

And what is with the T2 Sarah and the 18" figures ?

They must revist the Schwarzenegger Sculpt for 1/4 and use the new plastic they use for the Rocky line.

A 1:1 bust was interesting too, like the the Eric Draven and Jack Sparrow busts.

Oh yeah I did'nt notice that, I forgot they included the extra head. There nice figures but I would love them in 1/6 scale, especially an endoskeletion for like 30-40 bucks, I could army build with those. I wish they would put out more stuff in 1/6 scale, predators and terminator stuff would rock, better detail and paint at that scale and would fit in with my hot toys collection.

Most of the time I buy these just to have and never open them cause I don't know where to display them, where as with my 12" t2 bd terminator its on my shelf along with the rest of my hot toys t2 collection........at least til dx13 comes out:lol

Yeah, they never had it in stores and I dragged my feet ordering online and now it goes for like $30+, I'd rather just get a second tanker for $15, paint the hands all black, and be all set. Now that I have Reese, I want to get Tech Noir too, those still go fairly cheap.

I'm just so excited to have some form of BD T1 figure in my collection finally, I love the T-800 BD looks and NECA's been first to deliver on T1 and T2 and for now, is the only one for T1, would be nice is they did a 12" version.

I meant a figure based on his look when he is actually performing the surgery. I believe he was wearing a grey sleeveless shirt and had bandages wrapped around his damaged arm.

Correct, he'd changed into the undershirt he'd later wear for the police assault and tanker chase and had wrapped his hand and forearm in bandages. Given the lack of posability, NECA should have made the damaged Tech Noir figure a sitting figure with a little table diorama instead of a figure that just stands, you really can't get the look right as it is.

Great idea. They seem to always include a T-800 in each figure wave, so that or the eye surgery T-800 would work perfectly. Final wave;

T-800 eyesurgery or poster look
T1 Kyle Reese (2029)
T2 Sarah Connor (steel mill)

Reading through Neca's twitter, it's pretty clear they're done with Terminator for now, which is gutting. There's plenty of things I'd love to see, particularly Sarah and 2029 soldiers. They do seem to have run out of Arnie's to make, which is probably a big issue. Some figure/variant ideas (with part re-use in mind):

-Sarah Connor (Dyson Residence/Weapons cache) with her silenced assault rifle, handgun and knife.

-Sarah Connor (Steel Mill) Different head, shotgun, terminator arm.

-T-1000 (Sarah Connor Disguise) Added bullet hole and glitching feet.

-T-1000 (Steel Mill Interogation) Split torso, metal rod.

-T-1000 (Non-Lazy Liquid Nitrogen Version) With added broken limbs.

-T-1000 (Exploded) Maybe too much resculpting needed, but an obvious varient.

-Kyle Reese (Bomb manufacture) Short-sleeved top, home-made explosives and handgun.

-Kyle Reese (Factory Showdown) Different coat and battle damage, home-made explosive and metal rod.

-T-800 (Factory Showdown Endoskeleton) Removable Limbs --- this could be a good opportunity to add better leg articulation to the endo.

-T-800 (Cyberdyne Escape) A mix of existing parts with the smoke-grenade launcher and breathing apparatus.

+ Of course 2029 versions of Kyle Reese and John Connor.

Nice. Never seen them all MIB like that before. Those T-1000s you're better off leaving in the box anyway. I guarantee they'd break if you took them out. Even my liquid metal T-1000s head just fell off the other day. Just like that, off it came. I didn't even have a hold of the head.

For Terminator I've got

T1
- Reese
- Tanker Pursuit T-800

T2
- T-800
- Man or Machine T-800
- Cyberdyne T-800
- Steel Mill T-800
- Final Battle T-800
- Final Battle T-800 (12")
- T-1000
- T-1000 Hook Arms
- Liquid Metal T-1000

I had a chance to get the Biker T-1000 last weekend but thinking about everything else I'd like to get, I just wasn't wowed enough and I wasn't going to buy him just to have the look to be a completist, maybe I'll change my mind, and I'm not to impressed with the effect on the frozen biker, and the donut head one just feels a bit redundant to the other 2 I already have, just a new head.

I definitely plan to end up with a Police Shootout figure and a Tech Noir T-800, and if I can find one for cheap ever, or they put it out again, an Endoskeleton.

I've read a lot of heat about the Reese sculpt, but I actually think it's really good, it's just the poor eye paint job that really hurts it, the whites are almost the same shade as his skin and because of that, the lighter iris gets lost too, whiter whites and a darker iris and this would really pop.

I think the biggest T1 dissappointment from NECA is the hair on the spikey T-800 heads, I'm a bit surprised where they usually are sharp on details and accurracy, they ended up so similar to T2 with his hair instead of capturing the more distinct T1 look, and it's not as though they had to for the sake of posability or anything.

I hope the environments sell well and Neca makes environments to Terminator and Terminator 2.

A sitting Tech Nor T-800 BD operating his arm(with fixed hairs, the new skin texture and the accesories from the normal figure) and a eye surgery T-800.


This sets are amazing and not big work for Neca.

Big work but the killer, a still mill diorama with light up function.

I added a little more white to mine and you're right it really does bring a lot more life to the sculpt.

Watching the film now, I think one thing that throws off the sculpt is his hairline. I appreciate it's very hard to do at this scale, but the soft rubber piece gives him a very heavy fringe. The face looks much better with my finger over the figure's forehead haha.

Still incredibly happy to have Reese at all. Glad to report my local shop sold out of him pretty damn fast, and they've still got plenty of figures from previous waves.

The Rider

Yes the hairline is wrong.

The Schwarzenegger sculpt is not perfect.

They must revist the sculpt for bigger versions(hairline, nosetip, a smaller lower jaw).

Honestly, it is what it is with NECA figures. Theyre fun to collect and its nice because theyre cheap and small so you can collect a lot of them in limited display space.

But some of you guys are expecting way too much out of these things. Seriously, what do you expect for $16-$20? Theyre as good as theyre gonna get.

MaulFan
01-10-2013, 07:47 AM
While some people expect things that are beyond the scale and price range, some of us are just looking for consistency which isn't really asking for too much. NECA's capabilities are clear and like anyone else, even a Hoy Toys or Enterbay, some figures just aren't as good an effort as others. Tanker Truck T-800 is as good as you can get from NECA, but Kyle could be better in ways that NECA could very easily achieve.

Well you see paintjobs on figures of this scale hit certain high-points and you hope all the figures will do likewise...but they don't. And when a line you don't care about (or a line you do care about but its an older batch of figures with inferior sculpts) has better paintjobs than the current output of your favourite line - its frustrating. Sculpts getting better but paint getting worse. That is simply annoying. And we're even getting it with Hot Toys now.

I would guess either cut away some of the coat sleeve on the upper arm, or broke the arm and reattached it for the look but now you're permanent left with that pose.
