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.

I think NECA did a great job with these figures, but seeing these customs really shows off some great potential. Awesome job!

By the way, I did a showcase of the Police Assault Terminator on my site and if you want to check it out, just click the photo below. /end shameless plug

Scored an awesome deal on Amazon, Tech Noir T-800, Endo and biker T-1000 for $60 shipped, plus I have a second Tanker T-800 on the way to use as a police shootout figure, so in the next week or so, my NECA collection will have been completed as much as I want it to be, I'm so excited, especially to score an Endo for so cheap, I really want some figure of the Endo in my collection and I'd long sold off my Hot Toys one so now I'll have one again.

Congrats MaulFan! I would like to still pick up a regular technoir myself, I did have it in my hand in toys r us when they first hit, but I told myself why buy this when I already have the HT version. I should just bought it:slap I should dig up the rest of my neca terminators and display them on card somewhere.

MaulFan
01-15-2013, 05:26 PM
I too saw Tech Noir everywhere, but at the time, there was no word about Reese or biker T-800 from T1, I had no interest in Tech Noir if that's as far as it went, and like you, having HT Tech Noir and Endo, I felt no need for NECA versions. Just glad I could get the deal, the Endo alone goes for what I paid for all 3. I could live without biker T-1000, but to get the other two for so cheap, it would be nice to have the alternate look.

Thanks to lcsbx for both the inspiration and the WIP shots to help achieve this.

I received my second Tanker Pursuit figure the other day, bought to be a police shootout version since it's the cheaper option and the only big difference being bullet hits on his chest and stomach, which he gets in the police station anyway.

Some know, my big gripe with the limited articulation on these Terminator figures is that they all look very alike on the shelf together. Even with the guns, the best pose I could think of with the figure as is for Police shootout would look too close to the BD pose I have. So having seen lcsbx's awesome custom work, I liked the idea of imitating the Sideshow PF pose with the figure, but you have to commit to serious and permanent custom work. Since these figures are more or less statues anyway, I was fine with the permanent look, I don't think I'll ever be unhappy with it.

So here's my PF T-800 custom figure.

MaulFan
01-19-2013, 11:14 AM
Normally, that'd be my approach too, but like I said, there's just too little distinction between Police shootout and Tanker Pursuit for me on display. At least in the T2 line, you go from all black Pescadero to no coat on Man or Machine, to Cyberdyne with grey shirt, bandolier and mini gun, to Steel Mill with semi-BD face, pistol and M79 plus full left arm, to Final Battle with missing arm and full BD face. Despite sharing base parts, they look quite different from each other, more so than the biker T1 figures, but with the PF style pose on the police shootout figure, it looks different enough next to the BD figure for me.

This is my display, waiting on the last couple figures, but as I said, I like how the T1 figures stand out from each other now.

Well, I had ordered the Endo, Tech Noir T-800 and Biker T-1000, I got the package today, the sent me Pescadero, Man or Machine and Endo, I'm in the process of resolving that, but I am building up my T1 line, definitely need Tech Noir to go with Kyle, temped to get a second Kyle and paint the coat blue and make some pipe bombs. I'm not big on getting Steel Mill T-1000, too similar to the other 3 I already have, but the McFarlane is tempting. I've seen the frozen T-1000 and it just looks awful, a nice effort but I just don't get any sense of him being frozen from it, not worht the money.

Sounds like you received a case of the very first T2 wave.

The McFarlane T-1000 is really unique. I don't think there are many, if any other, representations of the exploded pretzel man. And since NECA seem to be done with Terminator now it looks like it will remain the only one.

MaulFan
01-19-2013, 12:49 PM
It's definitely a consideration, but right now, my T2 collection is complete to my satisfaction, the deal I found for the T1 figures included the biker so I opted for that too, but if I don't end up with it, that'd be fine, I don't feel my T2 incomplete, but missing Tech Noir with Reese and having a Terminator collection with no Endo does bother me so taking care of that is my top priority.

McFarlane did a great job on the sculpt and paint work on it. I picked it up some time ago wanting a 12" Arnold from each movie back when I had Hot Toys T-800s as well, it still kinda works with the NECA figures. As much as I'm not a big fan of that movie, it's a nice figure so why not have it out.

Sadly it appears to be the case. Neca said something to that effect on Twitter, and they have a full plate this year with other licenses.

I guess we may see a relaunch of some sort in a year or two, similar to the Aliens license this year. They may even jump back into things with the release of T5 (whenever that comes together).

Sigh...just when I recently revisited the line. I got a few from their previous release (Pescadero Escape, T-100 galeria, Cyberdyne Showdown, T2 endoskeleton), then I stopped because I thought my Terminator collection is pretty complete as is, since I have the important ones without getting the other variations of Arnold. Then i bought the NECA tech noir T-800, simply because I previously bought the Hot Toys version of that toy, but I never felt compelled to complete the line When I saw Tanker Truck Pursuit, I knew I had to have it, and back tracked every figure I can...I immediately bought Kyle Reese, Police Assault, Terminator first movie Endoskeleton, Steel Mill T-800, T-1000 liquid metal, T-1000 motorcycle cop...and I have Battle Across Time ordered already, and trying to negotiate from a collector Man or Machine.....I plan to complete the NECA Terminator line, and I was so excited to find out their next release. I'm just bummed now that it seem like I am late to the party. Sigh....

I'd actually prefer to see T3 figures from NECA despite preferring the movie Salvation. I'm happy enough with just my HT T4 figures.

Thing for me is I don't have the HT T4 figures anymore and I miss having those designs on display, especially Connor's look from the beginning. With T3, I just don't care for the designs much other than a BD T-850, I'd just get McFarlane figures if I wanted the more clean look.

I actually really liked each characters looks in salvation...connor, reese, wright (not cgi arnold though). Those hot toys figures were cool. I always really, really wanted the t-600.

But neca could really knock those out of the park I'd bet. Say what you want about the movie but you can have some really dynamic looking figures from that movie.

I think the BD T3 arnold design is really the only thing that movie has goin on for it...it's a really awesome look.

Yeah I'd only want the T-850. Not really bothered with the TX.

Its actually a funny reversal of prior times when McFarlane were the only game in town for Terminator figures - they released the T3 figures which made me crave the ''real'' Terminator figures of T2 and T1. At that point there was only the Movie Maniacs 4 T2 T-800 where they weren't allowed use his likeness. I was desperate for a clean T2 T-800 and had to settle for the T3 one. Now of course clean T2s are everywhere and those McFarlane T3s remain the only ones from the film.

I have to say, as much as I prefer NECA's new super articulated figures, even their more statuesque figures beat out McFarlane's efforts, and not just T2. McFarlane had some nice sculpting and paintwork, but their pose choices were often horrible and with less articulation the the most limited NECA figure, you were stuck. They did an amazing Michael Myers headsculpt on an odd body pose, their Sream figure was awful. Sleepy Hollow was probably their best line.

I haven't been fond of the chosen leg positions on NECAs T-1000s. Yeah it looks good for the distinctive T-1000 walk if the legs didn't warp in the package and he can stand on his own but probably most of them can't. And they don't provide stands to alleviate the problem.

The McFarlane T2 figures were charming for the time. I love the "exploded" T-1000. But, yeah, they are too statuesque. The saddest feature of the line is the extra damaged T-800 face (due to not having Arnie's likeness). Even though I don't own any of the NECA figures, I much prefer them. I hope they do a Sarah Connor from T1 and T2.

Mcfarlane has some nice statue poses, like the T3 2 pack, the Loken TX and the T-800 with coffin.

This looks so epic(with the awesome bases).

The paintwork on the T3 line was relly clean and the eyes looks so naturalistic.

And the T3 Arnold have the better likeness than the neca T2 Arnold.

I can't agree with this though. Their T2 sculpt isn't as perfect as I used to declare it, I haven't seen one repaint that actually makes it look better than the stock figure so I don't think the paint is the only problem with it. But I do still think its better overall than the McFarlane T3 heads. The sculpts were a bit soft on those.

Theres probably not enough recyclability (if thats a word) for NECA to make those. The exploded T-1000 would certainly need entirely new legs in a wide stance to support the upper weight.

01-25-2013, 04:38 PM
The T3 line stands as a good point of comparison for the figure industry in general. While I can say Neca's figures have improved vastly on an artistic level, production standards have plummeted. The sculpts and articulation are great, but the paint work less so. Lets not forget the QC issues either. Added bonuses have dipped too. I doubt we'd ever see a figure like MacFarlane's "T-850 with coffin", with the opening coffin with sculpted weaponry etc in today's market.

Would love to see Neca tackle T3 (and even that horrible Salvation) though. Coffin or no coffin, I'd kill for some T3 Arnold's that will sit in line with Neca's other figures. It seems like such an easy pool to tap for easy popularity, all the more desperate for a line running out of Arnolds to make. Have a soft spot for T3, I'd pick up every figure from that line. Not a fan of Salvation, but the T-600 was a cool design.

... It's hard not to look with envy at the Predator license and all the characters that reuse has allowed, while other licenses are far more limited in scope haha.

Even if Neca doesn't spread out beyond the first 2 films, I'd hope they squeeze out one or two more waves, enough to give us Sarah Connor in between the last couple of Terminator variants. 2029 Connor/Reese would be incredible too.


I dont understood this !

For me, the Battle Across Time Arnold figure is already a very close representation of the T-850. I know the jacket is a little off, but it's really close enough. Gloves, jacket (with bullet holes), gray shirt...very T-850-ish. I know it's not 100% accurate, but it's pretty darn close.

The Neca Sculpt is a bit to square. And in some points to thin(Pescadero Ecape) ore to wide.
The Mcfarlane sculpt looks more naturalistic, lifelike, whatever you called.

McFarlane makes the Arnold spedcifics on his face better. For example the little long nose tip, the lips, the smaller lower jaw and the cheekbone.


Neca makes a lot better Sculpts( Clubber Lang, Army of Darkness Ash, Aliens Hudson). I hope they brings the schwarzenegger sculpt to this stage.

The sculpt are little old, they make this for Conan and Change it a little for the various licenses.



Thats never going to happen at this scale. Not even HT chromed their 1:6 figures at those pricepoints.



Are you sure ?

Hot Toys Ensoskeleton is a bad example, this was really old.

Ok, chromed is the false word.
Called chrome-silver looking paint.

The 2009er 7" Endos have a more silver looking paint than the nice Cult classics endo.

Im sure that a texture exists they looking more like the real endoskeleton metal finish.

The silver color on the neca 18" Endo looks really bad.

And a problem are the many inaccurate parts.




Theres probably not enough recyclability (if thats a word) for NECA to make those. The exploded T-1000 would certainly need entirely new legs in a wide stance to support the upper weight.

I would not say. They can use the same parts and revisted ist a bit.

Cut the upper body in the mid and sculpture the liquid metal parts .

The same for the legs(they only must fix the hip area).

Ok, its some work, but this version are relly popolar.

And when Mcfarlane make it, why not Neca ?

Both are companys and must make money.

@henzINNIT, I hope youre right.

Would be so aweasome(when neca make no Errors).

For this Version the can fixes some parts.

1. A better arnold sculpt.
Whatever you think about the quality of this sculpt, fpr 18" is not good enough.

2. The correct colour for the shotgun, this are dark grey/black and not silver.

3. Little more Detail on the belt buckles and the collar of the shirt and Jacket.

4. Removable sunglasses. In this size this is not a problem, I have a spiderman 2 7" figure you can removable the sunglases.

5. They must use the new transculent skin plastic/Texture. This looks on humans(Im not a fan to use this on the Predators) so realistic.

MaulFan
01-26-2013, 07:32 AM
The recyclability of parts with the T-1000 has nothing to do with bulding it from what's already been done but actually being able to reuse molds in the factory and not make new ones. To do the exploded T-1000 with justice, you can't reuse any existing mold, it would mean all new parts head to toe and for a one off, NECA's unlikely to bite.

Look at McFarlane.

http://www.oocities.org/quatermass2003/T1000.jpg

Aside from style of the bending and all and details, a NECA version would be pretty much the same and there's nothing about this you could use from an existing figure mold.

I imagine NECA wouldn't do this figuring the serious fans who would want such a look already have or can easily track down the McFarlane figure and don't need NECA for it.

I related the recyclability of the sculpting costs . Neca argue weith this for the Predator rescue team.

When I see this photo, Neca must only make new Hands, the torso and fixing the mouth on the T-1000 sculpt. Legs and arms they can use from the Steel mill version.

NECA can't recycle these legs for the blown up look, I don't see them supporting the the blown up half, you have to pose the legs to distribute the weight and balance the figure. NECA's T-1000 figures barely stand up as is.

The knee articulation on the T-1000 could allow for a newly sculpted lower leg, one that could bear the load of that exploded look. It's still a lot of work for a figure that already exists and couldn't be reused in anyway. I don't think Neca would bite.

They could recycle a previously used pair of legs to create the split torso T-1000. That and a No-Feature Liquid Metal version would be the only two T-1000s left that I want.

MaulFan

None of the previously made T-1000 legs will support an explode figure, period, unless you add articulation not previously there and in that case, you're no longer recycling the molds.

You mean the SDCC figure?

Not the exploded figure, the time when Sarah is pinned to the wall and T-1000 is about to stab her in the eye, T-800 splits him from the shoulder down.

Not exactly the SDCC, but T-1000 in mid-morph(no eyes, nose, mouth, hair, ears, clothes... no features), just liquid metal blob in human form. Just got off work, I can't think of any official term right now.

I still think you'd need new legs for that. As Maulfan said the NECA T-1000 figures have a difficult enough time staying on their feet as it is. I've got most of mine leaning against the walls of my crappy shelves or against other more stable figures.

I am so glad for the deal I found, 3 figures for $60, considering what the Endo goes for, that alone made the deal sweet, and the set came with Tech Noir that I wanted and got for about $10 less than most sales now, and the biker T-1000 was a bonus. I wish these had stands though, T-1000 stands worse than the others.

Whats your opinion on the T1 endo? Is the quality decent? Yeah I got (sort of) lucky with the T-1000's I do have, Steel mill and pescadero hospital, they both stand just fine. The arm broke off of the pescadero as soon as I opened it. Though I wasn't too pissed because I got it for $4 at FYE. :lol

I do believe NECA updgraded the skull on the T1, which is why it's so rare, serious collectors wanted the better one, they probably made less of it too, I'm sure it was just a smaller amount to get more money out of the figure.

Yeah the cheaper stuff is really the only way to have so many variants. Well if you have an endless supply of money you could have (via the custom world) a custom of each in 1/6 scale.

I've long been bothered by the sloppy paint work on NECA's 12" Final Battle T-800, and while yes, it's a NECA figure, and rather cheap, I don't think the paint work lived up to even NECA's better work, particularly the blood work, too toyish and they slopped so much blood onto the Endoskull obscuring the metal and ruining the look of the overall portrait. I may touch up some blood work around it, but for now at least, I finally have the Endo popping more having finally bit down and bought a Krylon silver leafing pen to do the Endo bits, what a great item, wish I'd gotten it sooner, but it was the final step to finally showing off my work here, I redid the skin and blood work some time ago, using the great Enterbay portrait for reference and adding detail not there in the original paint job while also cleaning up a lot of it.

Just thought I'd share my horrible ebay experience from earlier today with everyone. I came across a guy selling a lot of 5 NECA Terminator figures. Tech Noir, Man or Machine, T1000 Steel Mill, P. Escape T800 and last but not least, the grail (and my reason for wanting this lot) was a T1 T800 endo. Current bid was 40 bucks. So I sat around all day waiting for this auction to chip away. Final 10 seconds comes up and I place a bid for 45 bucks. The window to confirm my bid came up and I clicked 'yes' (or whatever it is). Then, all of a sudden a page loads that says I am not allowed to bid on this seller's items because I don't have a paypal account. Are you kidding me? Obviously, the auction ended and I was pissed off. I rarely buy anything off ebay, let alone bid on things so I don't have a paypal. I had planned on using the remaining balance on an ebay gift card, which it clearly said was an accepted form of payment to this seller. You're telling me I can pay with an ebay gift card but at the same time you're telling me I can't because I don't have a paypal. Nowhere on this sellers page or on the item page did it state that there was any restriction for buying from this seller. I missed out on a great buy because of this nonsense and I'm pretty pissed.

MaulFan
02-04-2013, 12:55 PM
I don't know if the page will list restrictions.

I'm sure the seller accepts gift card payments but wants to limit it to those with confirmed PayPal accounts in the event of trouble. EBay doesn't look out for sellers so I'm sure more will start to use such restrictions to cover their asses.

Huh, interesting. Trying to think now would I have any need for more articulated T-800s. The arm surgery T1 T-800 could have done with being able to sit down but for T2 I think they chose a pretty good fits-all leg stance.

MaulFan
02-06-2013, 11:30 AM
I wouldn't mind having Galleria T-800 with additional articulation, Police Shootout T1 could definitely use it, I can't figure out why NECA made their T1 T-800s with such limited elbow articulation even compared to T2.

a-dev
02-06-2013, 12:39 PM
I can't think of any worthwhile T2 pose that can't already be achieved or at least approximated.

The questioner on Twitter should have asked about getting some T1s out with new legs not T2s IMO. The T1 leg pose is very specific to the Tech Noir gunfight.

MaulFan
02-06-2013, 03:29 PM
I think the T1 leg pose works great for both looks, for that matter, the T2 pose works, but with 5 T-800s from that film, I'm really more looking to just have some difference between them all. I think you need the solid legs they have now for the Cyberdyne to hold up the mini gun, but Galleria or even full BD might be nice with full posability.

My big issue with articulation on T2 is that the figures look so much alike on display together, but with the T1 T-800s, I find the arm articulation very limiting, especailly on the Police Shootout, you can't get any really cool poses out of that figure to really get the feel of the scene, that's why I hacked mine up, I hate the limits on Tech Noir too, they're great looking figures, just not much you can do with them, they feel very old school NECA, predating even the T2 line.

a-dev
02-06-2013, 05:17 PM
I wouldn't call the T1s any more 'old school' NECA than the T2 figures. They have exactly the same amount and type of joints. Its just that they didn't sculpt the jackets to facilitate much range of motion, certainly less than you get with the T2 figures.

The Rider

I have no problem with the articulation of the Terminator Figures.
The poses looks really good.

A good solution is when neca make diorama sets like the crow.
For this sets they sculpt a few new parts( for exampel a sitting upper body).

In the production is this way cheaper than complet new tooled full articulated parts. And it looks better.

Yeah I seem to remember dunking loads of figures into a sink full of water to de-dust them. I think it may well have been a contributing factor because some wierd $h!t like this happened to the head-dome of one of my McFarlane Dog Aliens, it got all hazy and chaffed-looking.

Some of the links DiFabio provided suggested that this ''comes off'' but then comes back very quickly. So I just tried rubbing it off with my finger (lol) and yeah its bringing the black out again, kinda like the oils in my skin are 'moisturising' it...however temporarily that will be.

Thanks! The diorama is turning out pretty good and should work well with a variety of different figures. I'm glad you liked the photos. :)

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I'm not sure about selling one. In fact, this diorama was only supposed to be a small thing, but turned into a multi week project. I can provide some information (materials, etc) and help on what I did with it though and if I do decide to build one to sell, I'll be sure to let you know.

im shocked that a lot if these figures are considered rare and cost a ton. I guess I got lucky cuz I wanted the series 1 tech noir t800 but on ebay they only have a ton of the battle damaged version. I wanted to the original one, with the laser sighting gun and uzi and correct hair. but hes going for ridiculous amounts on amazon and ebay! I guess I got lucky last night and bid on a moc one in the end paid about $33 but still, didn't realize the figure was that hard to find.

Finally picked up that kyle reese figure I stashed some weaks ago. all that my TRU had left was the silver T1000's and the frozen T1000's. but I got the kyle reese for like 8.50 with the 20% coupon. not a bad deal! its neat to finally have someone for the TERMINATOR to face off to. I love how detailed the trenchcoat is. the hair is spot on but the face could have been better. I love how it evev has the rope that he used to hold the rifle and the sawed off rifle end. even the picture of sarah connor! lol that a nice touch. all in all glad to have this character from the series, never thought they'd get around to making him. now im just waiting for the series 1 tech noir terminator I won off ebay to arrive. that's become a pretty rare figure I guess.

and super-articulated T-800 with diaper crotch.

I guess that'd be a way of continuing the line, they're extending the Predator line by reissuing with new articulation. And theres the new Aliens warrior.
Some T1 T-800s that can sit and take on neutral standing poses would be nice. While they're at that they could fit in some new versions like factory/BD Reese, 2029 Reese, eye surgery T-800. Probably no point at all in asking for T1 Sarah.

I'd probably have less use for added articulation on the T2 T-800. I think they sculpted in a good fits-most pose with the legs on that one.

The Rider
05-11-2013, 09:18 PM
Hm, I think Satchials post was a little sarcastic.

The problem with the T1 and T2 line was not the articulation. the problem are the bad paint apps, QC and the bad T-800 face sculpt(compare with Dutch). With more artuculation, this figures have not thes good body look. The best example is the way sculpted T2 T-800.


I understood the sitting problem on the T1 T-800. It was a cool solution when Neca make a mini diorama with sitting leg sculpt, the new Schwarzenegger sculpt and the new skin texture/plastic.

The big question is when make neca 18" Terminator Figures ?

Series600
05-11-2013, 10:25 PM
They could make some awesome dioramas if they put their minds to it. T2: Hand to Hand fight in the Mall and Steel Mill(T-800 punching through T-1000s head, T-800 on Harley, Hasta La Vista/Liquid Nitrogen both kneeling, T-1000s shocked face with grenade in his gut and T-800 on loading belt, cleave body T-1000(split in half by T-800). I could also use a Sarah Connor version of T-1000 complete with melded feet and hole through torso.

@Series600, I hope Neca have the same ideas.


@Sachial, why you want a more articulated T-800 ?

In the movies he dont really move. He have always the same pose, he walk, shoot, walk and shoot^^

@G-M53, no battle Damage, no new Endoskeleton, no Tech Noir ?

With better paintjob, a revisted sculpt(the Dutch sculpt is a way better, but not perfect) and no more joints than the 7" version it could look like statues. I have pland for cool bases since years(with metal title plates).

@a-dev, can yu imagine a T-800 with this new sculpt, a better paintjob/QC and the transculent skin texture(but a little more mat).

If it is I wonder what form it will take now. Their other lines have moved toward increased articulation. Terminator was the last of the 'a few joints here and there' lines. Rider would be disgusted. I'd be interested in seeing leg articulation etc. Could do without the ball-joint heads though. As anyone whose been in the Alien or Predator thread the past 2 days knows well.

Very good. Huge improvement. The sculpt doesn't do it for me like it used to though I have to say. I used to champion it quite a bit on here much to the annoyance of a few members. :lol I think NECA have improved on the likeness with Dutch...though perhaps making him too square-jawed.

vju13
07-01-2013, 09:49 PM
Very true, a lot of companies can be hit or miss with Arnold. For it's time Neca probably had one of the best Terminator Arnold sculpts out there. Lately everyone seems to be stepping it up, including Neca, Dutch looks great, and we all know they'll just keep getting better!

a-dev
07-01-2013, 10:00 PM
The profile view is still good and I like the hair and general shape of the head. The face frontally looks off though, would you agree? I also still like that its an all-in-one head and neck. Something I don't think we'll be seeing anymore as everyone seems to want ball-jointed heads now, including Tankman himself.

vju13
07-01-2013, 10:14 PM
The Terminator sculpt I wouldn't say it's totally off. The profile def is the best view of the head sculpt. I also think this sculpt is better than the last 2 Terminator hot toys sculpts. Enterbay can't be touched. Neca's Terminator I still think it's a great sculpt, the Arnold likeness is very good, but some of the features are off. One thing I noticed is this nose should be a little wider, more detail under the eye, among other things. On the "last battle" figure the Endoskeleton is pretty off, and the way the skin is positioned over on top of that half is off. It's not the end of the world, but more accuracy wouldn't hurt. As far as Dutch, the shape is there, the hair is pretty on point. The eyes seem smaller than the Terminator eyes, also a little "wonky" at times, but the sculpt is nice. His jaw is pretty sharp and square, I may have had it a bit rounder, but he's also making a face, so I guess the jaw is actually fine. When it comes down to it, I can't complain. This 12" Terminator I got for $35 as opposed to a hot toys figure $300, or Enterbay $400. For a figure worth $35 I think they did very well for themselves.

For anyone who never got around to getting the original Tech Noir, there's a UK seller on Amazon (Buy 4 Less) who has him up for $20 shipped.

Can't beat that.

The Rider
07-04-2013, 01:18 PM
I would not buy Tech Noir online, I have some figures in hand with big big paint error, especially on the face.


To the Terminator sculpt, ist not a good sculpt. To many details are inacurate ore off compared to Schwarzeneggers face. The nose shape, the shape on the chin, the eyes and the mout lips, that is not Arnold.

Compare this to the T3 Mcfarlane T-850(yes a older Arnold, but the charakteristicas are the same) or the Neca Dutch sculpt.

The Neca Dutch looks like Arnold and with motre details and minor inprovements here and there its better than the Hot Toys sculpt(the BD version).
The on thing I complain on the Neca Dutch sculpt is the face is a little bit to wide, especially the square jaw.

It would be cool when Neca make for the 30th anniversary from T1 diorama sets like the Star Trek Select line8for example a arm surgery set).

With the new Schwarzenegger sculpt and the transculent plastic.

Not likely, NECA doesn't seem interested in revisiting Terminator, they just released the last of their T1 stuff 2012/2013, it hasn't been that long. All they could really do now is re-release with new articulation, but they probably don't feel it worth the money to go back and do all new sculpts and such.

They were asking opinions on a kenner series a while ago so I reckon it's probably going to be that. Or maybe a 1/4 fig? Not sure if I'd buy it as I think I'm covered by the enterbays

Thinking of stuff that's "likely" (minimal/zero tooling) the only think I'd want is probably a blue coat reese. Even if they re-did some of the older figs to dutch standards I'm not sure I'd bother upgrading, The new hot toys fig is my priority this year

MaulFan
02-18-2014, 06:37 AM
This is one of few Kenner figures they could easily imitate without really doing totally new parts, even though they've done Kenner Predators, there's a lot of mold recycling. The Terminator figures were so extreme it'd be hard to do Kenner versions from existing pieces easily without a lot of new sculpting.

I might pick up a remake of the above for nostalgia's sake, but I'm not that interested in the Kenner figures at all, not even for something as near and dear as Terminator.

There's still ground to cover with this license from the films themselves. Seeing Neca's achievements with the Alien and Predator lines gives me more hope than ever that we may see a Sarah Connor. Major character, fan favourite, easy variants. The simple fatigues from T2 could make a few different figures with minor alterations and different weapons. Future versions of Kyle Reese and John Connor would be great and could feature heavy re-use between them too. Squeaze out a couple of easy variants (battle damage Reese, battle damage Endo) and you have a couple of easy waves there.


Please Neca:

T-800 Bob 18"
T-1000 12"
Sarah Connor + young John Connor 7"
Terminatrix 7"
Kyle Reese future war 7"
T-600 8"
Marcus 7"
Marcus battle damaged 7"
John Connor (Bale) 7"
Mototerminator + hydrobot 7" scale

I don't suppose Neca have turned around on T3 and TS. Odd that they seem so opposed to these films when they're happy to milk AvP/Robocop 3.

I'd be down for more Arnolds from T3 and the TX. Hated Salvation but I might pick up a T-600.

Ideal figs for me (taking into account how little tooling they'd probably want to do) would probably just be T1 stuff - Tech Noir/Final Battle Sarah, Final Battle Reese (Blue Coat with BD head), and an endo re-release. I'd take some t2 Sarah's too but then I'd want John and that's never gonna happen.

Edit: a Final Battle Sarah/BD Reese with pipebombs and an Endo would be a good compromise in new tooling and would make a great wave or deluxe pack

I hope they make a T2 Sarah Connor and a exploding T-1000.
Further, what is with an 18" T-800 Arnold ?

There is definitely a few more movie-based things they could do. Kenner stuff....hmmm...hard to see how they'd approach that. They could release their T-1000 again with one half painted as liquid metal like that old Kenner version, a biker T-1000 with bright blue pants? T-800 with purple T-shirt? I don't think there's as much potential there as there is with Predator and Alien.

Anyone think NECA will release some VG version of this line? They've tweet that they still had some Terminator figures down the line.

I think they bring next year some Terminator stuff. Its the ideal time, with the start of the new film.

Yes as good as a lot of the reveals have been I'm finding myself quite easily not getting any.

I have a shed load of stuff on PO that will take me into next year but nothing apart from BRJ 2.0 has tickled my interest thus far on the latest reveals over the last few weeks. Oh the video game '89 Batman will be mine which is funny as I usually avoid NECA's video game figures.

Looks like it'll be the same mold as the previous release, you'd just have to paint it metal to get the right look, the factory paint will be cartoony for the game effect.

Urghh, what a silly stuff.

What is with a new T-1000 or a Sarah Connor, or a 18" T-800 Arnold?

Further, Neca could revisted there old figures with the better Schwarzenegger likeness from Dutch and the transculent plastic.

Wanted to post a little something:
My friends got me a trip to a horror convention in germany, called "Weekend of Horrors".
Absolutely amazing day for me, so many great people.
Kim Coates ("Tig", Sons of Anarchy) was there, Scott Wilson ("Hershel", TWD), Marc Dacascos, Cary Tagawa, Robert Lasardo and many more.
But the best for me...hands down...was Tom Woodruff Jr. You sure know he made all the aliens with Alec Gillis, but he worked on Terminator too, his second project under Stan Winston, after Buckaroo Banzai.

Talked to the man, such a nice person, talked about terminator and told him that's my favorite movie and such.
He signed my knewly aquired Kyle Reese, bought for me from my best friend.

Truely humbled, will sure as hell hunt down more conventions now. So happy.
:yess:

Have a look:

Congrats, man. :duff

Any news on Terminator figures from NECA other than the videogame stuff?

EndoSickness

Thx, man.
:duff

No, news, nothing. It was rather small, compared to you guys one the other side of the big water. No figure companies, or something like that.

The only thing I was asking about was the status on ED-209, how it affects german sellers, but the dude with knowledge was in discussions.
So that´s it...

I received an early run of the new Robocop Vs. The Terminator set of endoskeleton 2-pack last week.

They look really terrific. NECA used the most recent and best sculpt of their T-800. Both the red and blue versions really stand out with the highlighting paint.
Definitely a welcomed addition to the video game series.

Not gonna happen, NECA's stayed away from T3 and T4 and the new movie looks awful, no way they waste resources on T5 before T3 or T4.

I'm personally looking forward to these "video game" versions of the Endoskeletons, as well as the min-gun version and the "endo-dog". The colored paint apps don't bother me that much. Just ordered a few sets of the TRU 2 pack Robocop vs Terminator ('93 Video Game) 7 Inch Action Figure - 2 Pack Terminator Endoskeleton - Toys R Us Exclusive - NECA - Toys "R" Us (http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=50799286&prodFindSrc=search&cp=)

Hi guys this is my first time in the forum and I hope I am in the right place, If not then please accept my apologies.

I would like to present my custom Neca 12" Final Battle T101.

I was never happy with how he arrived and decided to give him a repaint and im quite happy with how he turned out. I am awaiting some Alclad Chrome to arrive and will be chroming the endo parts but for now here he is. ( I am also working on a better base )

I also run a custom 3d printing/Paint service and as most custom painters have several projects running at the same time. I don't know if posting links is allowed here but id like to share my page if there is interest

I hope you like and again I apologise if I am breaking any rules

Kind regards

Skin work looks nice, I'd suggest going a bit sloppier with the blood around the Endo parts, right now it looks a bit too uniform and almost looks like an outline rather than a bleeding wound and maybe go a bit darker, more maroon than straight red.

Here's what I did a few years back.


I've long been bothered by the sloppy paint work on NECA's 12" Final Battle T-800, and while yes, it's a NECA figure, and rather cheap, I don't think the paint work lived up to even NECA's better work, particularly the blood work, too toyish and they slopped so much blood onto the Endoskull obscuring the metal and ruining the look of the overall portrait. I may touch up some blood work around it, but for now at least, I finally have the Endo popping more having finally bit down and bought a Krylon silver leafing pen to do the Endo bits, what a great item, wish I'd gotten it sooner, but it was the final step to finally showing off my work here, I redid the skin and blood work some time ago, using the great Enterbay portrait for reference and adding detail not there in the original paint job while also cleaning up a lot of it.

Wow yours looks really good. And thank you for your kind words, I will be spraying the endo parts with Alclad Chrome next week so the blood and a few areas will be redone and ill post once complete. The flesh was brought out with a wash but looks really effective. I also applied a wash on to the tshirt also

I have a lot of projects in the pipeline all Terminator related. Would you like a link to my FB page?

MaulFan
01-18-2015, 06:41 PM
Thanks, and sure, share any links you want.

Human skin is my weak area with paint, I'm pretty happy with what I can do with anything else but no matter what my skin always looks more toylike than original NECA paints, I only redid the skin on the T-800 because it was necessary in order to redo the blood, it was so heavy I couldn't go as subtle as I went without a new base of skin to paint atop.

Davea1982
01-19-2015, 06:30 AM
Hey thank you

And if you ever need a repaint on the face I would be happy to oblige. I've just ordered a shedload of paints so will be updating mine by the end of the week. I find the best way to apply skin tone is a light coat of flesh then a darker wash ( Mix the same flesh tone with some brown/water and apply, Then drybrush the base colour over the top)

Here is a link to my page so any likes are appreciated

https://www.facebook.com/3dcustoms2015

You will see there's a few Endoskeleton 3d printed skulls there and I cant wait to finish those. Hoping there may be some interested parties here in these forums. As im relatively new I am currently trying to spread the word as much as possible.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Hi everyone

I have acquired an 18" Neca Endoskeleton for a really low price the only issue I have is its without a weapon or a box. Does anyone know where I might be able to acquire a new Plasma Rifle or perhaps already have one they could measure up for me so I can 3D print one in scale ?

Also I will be chroming him up heavily inspired by other members here who have done the same

Cheers

An ultimate T-800 and possibly T-1000 are going to be shown this weekend. I'm assuming they'll be all new versions with hip, knee, and feet articulation.

I threw most of my T-1000 figures away because they deteriorated so these will have to look really, really good for me to buy them.

Yeah, joints aren't much use if they're made of brittle plastic and they crumble - as happened on, I think, every single T-1000 that I bought (which was a lot, to my regret now) and with even more joints that could possibly break it's a cause for concern.

Though come to think of it, I don't know what I'd need more leg articulation on a NECA T-800 and T-1000 for. Unless they're making bikes for them, what's the use. I don't need these guys doing karate.
