I thought Reese came out pretty good for NECA, not their most accurate work, but to me, it looks more like Biehn than their T-1000 looks like Robert Patrick. I blame a lot of Reese on how his eyes were painted, he looks like a zombie or something.

Probably will, T-800 has 3 heads and if it's an Ultimate, they won't leave a head as incentive for a future release.

I couldn't think of a good reason to order the Ultimate T-800. Added leg articulation alone wasn't enough since the original leg positioning was/is fine.

I'll possibly buy more than one Sarah though and an ultimate T-1000 or two.

I'd like to see the final T-800, I understand the original was very close to a perfect sculpt, the pics we've seen so far just look too identical that it really just feels like the old figure articulated, if the heads were a step up I'd be more interested.

a-dev
06-22-2015, 08:20 PM
Still love the hair and the general head shape on the Pescadero figure. And the profile is nailed as far as I'm concerned. The mouth and chin area viewed from the front is the only slightly funny looking part of the sculpt to me. A little bit too puffed up looking or something. Then there's the usual low-end issues of paint and skin texture. Overall though, not incomprehensible why they would use the same heads for the T-800

Arnold face looks better there, but I don't like the way the damage is done in the new movie, looks like someone sliced it away with precision, not so much damaged. If the Guardian version face looks closer to this I'm in for one, it just looks so sad and droopy in the pics so far.

Provided it doesn't fall apart when you remove it from the box like the original release did I'll be good.

The original's leg pose was a bit of a problem aswell, stands were needed, especially if you were unfortunate enough to get plastic warping from the packaging in addition to the crumbling joints.

Just noticed the T-1000 seems to be in a Pescadero diorama too. Not that that will be released for sale.

Not sure if you ever realized, I did recently by accident, T-1000's feet are ball jointed. I had major problems in the past getting them to stand but after I figured that out, it was much easier, no stands needed, very stiff, almost glued joints at first though.

DiFabio
07-08-2015, 08:31 PM
The elbow joints on most of my T-1000s disintegrated. I remember how hard it was to find decent ones with nice face paint and no breakages. I'll be passing on this Ultimate one probably since it looks exactly like the old one except for the new legs. Even the head has that pale, chintzy looking paint job on the face. I remember coming across so many at Toys R Us that were missing eye brows.

Sarah Connor looks great. I'll be buying atleast two of her granted they turn out okay.

That Sarah Connor is just perfect. Looks fantastic, all 3 heads are spot on, and I'm still giddy about the shotgun of all things. They had me at Sarah Connor, but if the final figure comes out anything like that proto I'll be thrilled. As mentioned before, many figures don't even look that good at the proto phase.

Probably gonna pass on the rest. I'm happy with the Terminators I have. Surprised about the extra parts that the Ultimate T-1000 has. I thought for sure it'd have the interchangeable chest pieces the Genisys version is getting.

The older Arnie Genisys figure looks the best to me out of the new line and I might pick him up, the film is awful though.

They may not have a choice, Weaver doesn't easily give our her likeness rights so they might have had to make it more a passing resemblance that was good enough for fans but vague enough for her approval.

Hamilton has no say really, her rights come with the T2 license, which is why we get T2 Sarah's but have never gotten a T1 with her likeness, only the generic Funk figure.

Because I don't own any Neca T1/T2 toys I am buying everything T2 here.

Color me excited.

I would rather not have the joint on Arnold's legs though, I like the pose on the original and it looks clean w/o joints.

Rare to see you in here.

I don't think the joints really help this particular version of the T-800, the original figures had a fine leg pose. So I'm skipping this one. Heck the only temptation for me is the box.

I think both Ripley and Conor are overrated as ****. The Bride and Catwoman from TDKR kicked more ass. Ripley wasn't even the best character in her films...not even the best female character, that honor goes to Vasquez in Aliens. Conor gets way too much credit for just one film. What did she really do? She almost escaped from a mental institution, had some nightmares about the future, and she shot Dyson and cried. :lol I like them both, but it always annoys me when they are put on these top 10 lists of greatest film heroes just because they're females.

Ehh I liked Kiddo and Catwoman fine but their films are inferior to the ones that made these women such icons. It's not just about what their skills are either, it's more about what they rise up to do. Ripley going toe to toe with the queen to save Newt is just the definition of bad ass. Sarah Connor had to literally crawl out of the grip of an unstoppable killing machine. She killed the first Terminator, and truely became the mother of the human resistance. They were both every day people who became heroes before our eyes. That is why they're such enduring characters.

I like them, but I find Ripley a bit dull. I thought Vazquez looked cooler, she was more charismatic, and she had more personality despite having a smaller role, plus she sacrifices herself to save the others. That's why IMO, Ripley wasn't even the best character in her own film.

Sarah "killed" half a Terminator after an injured Reese fought it and pretty much destroyed the T 800 with a bomb. So, imo, it was really Reese's victory. Sarah might the Mother Marry of the story, but ultimately, she's not Jesus. In the first film, she wasn't that much different from the typical damsel in distress. Sure, she evolves into a tougher character by the second film, but ultimately, it's not her film, nor is she the hero of the story, hence why I think she's overrated as a film hero, imo.

It's an area NECA generally excel in with some exceptions I'm sure. Their T-800s and Dutch figures do very well. The proportions and specificities* of his body are usually nailed IMO. Hot Toys gives Arnie figures muscle-bodies but they're not very specific to him and not very well detailed as far as muscle definition, veins and so on. They also tend to make his legs too long.

I don't think it's harsh, it just looks like a muscular male torso, not Sly's specific shape, it's very box shaped from the front, no curves to it, it just doesn't feel like Stallone, but it's fit enough looking it works fine.

As for the sculpt comparison, I don't see more RP in NECA, the SDCC shots look pretty good, but that's one of few angles.

The eye / nose / mouth areal looks good, but his jawline and overall cheek structure looks like he's suffering from bad plastic surgery or something and ruins the overall portrait quality for me.

He has a weird jawline in real life. That's one thing about the HT figure that bothers me, they made his jawline too perfect, imo. The left side of his jaw is completely different than his right side...but that's hard to see in the movies because of the camera angles and lighting.

I like the added articulation, but now that it's being executed, it's just too costly to get the benefit I'd want out of it. I liked the idea of doing more articulated Terminator figures because I liked the idea of being able to give more variety to the look of my NECA Terminator lineup, having 4-5 T-800s from each movie all with mostly the same post and only different guns and heads is a bit boring looking, but doing just a one off "Ultimate" of each past figure at $23, it'd get pricey to buy up multiples to server the function. I'd need 2 T-800s, and have to paint the shirt on one black for the sunglasses head, the BD head is just utterly useless with this set. I'd need 3 T-1000s to use all the parts, that'd be $100+ to give my display variety, just not worth it and a single figure isn't worth it. That's why I'm passing. Sarah's brand new and very welcome. Likewise with T1, my reasons would be the same, I'm fine enough with what we already got but would like a T1 Sarah, if they could get Sigourney Weaver I bet they could get her and more easily.

I'm only buying the one as a sampler of their ''SA'' T-800. I have ample quantities of the original releases covering all the looks and have no desire to replace them especially when I was always fine with the leg pose they chose anyway.

T1 Sarah would be cool and yes I'm sure they could get her likeness rights for such a figure - alas I think the barrier to her being made is her 80s girly look and the fact she didn't use guns. I'm sure they'd be concerned that she just wouldn't sell enough to warrant making her. We'd buy her but casuals wouldn't and even some collectors of the rest of the line wouldn't. Some adult male collectors actually have 'no female figures' policies - though maybe moreso at 1:6 where they feel like they are truly buying a ''doll''.

Picked up the ultimate T-800 today. As far as I can tell comparing it to the original release, the heads are indeed the same sculpt. Also, they put a twisty tie around his torso that kind of deforms the Jacket a bit.

Also saw the Genisys figures, they looked pretty good, but I'd rather save my money for the upcoming Ultimate T-1000 and Sarah.

Literally my only temptation for Genisys figures is the fact that I have the McFarlane T3 figures, a movie which I despise. Now, if I ultimately end up hating Genisys it hasn't happened quite yet, it's certainly a lesser Terminator movie by the standard of the first two. But will I hate it more than T3? If I don't and I'm happy to display some T3 figures it would seem to make sense to buy the NECA T:Genisys figures.....but then again I haven't been laid in far too long a time, maybe I should save the money. **** it's all so confusing....

Guardian looks like he has a ball-joint head. They didn't have to go that route, in fact arguably they shouldn't have because part of sculpting an old Arnie is surely sculpting an area where he has aged the most - his neck and jowl area. Arnie has a turkey neck in his old age which cannot be recreated properly with a ball-joint head.

If you're going to be a "professional" reviewer, you should get your information straight. The reason they didn't give this T-800 a BD head is because the BD figure is an all new costume, not just a head, as it's Arnold from the future and even older.

Yes they could do a BD, but the one they have done is entirely different but the reviewer has no clue. Makes me wonder why he got these figures, I haven't seen the entire movie or paid extra attention but even I know Arnold goes through very distinct changes in appearance over the film, the white hair should be a giveaway too.

Same here, they're doing really well for me with all my favourite licenses. I've got an array of figures that seemed mere dreams when McFarlane were doing movie figures. For some reason they were reluctant to truly milk Aliens, Predator, Terminator and Robocop for all they were worth whereas NECA go ahead and make every possible T-800 variant, the entire Lost Predator clan and their trophy wall, ED-209, human figures from the Alien franchise, the Powerloader, almost every possible version of Dutch, a Kyle Reese - all total no-goes for McFarlane for whatever reason.

Also now that Enterbay is essentially dead and my Hot Toys collecting is done (unless they happen to make more from T1/T2/Aliens) NECA is entirely where it's at for me - they're the ones providing my fix now.

EB's basketball line is going strong, but their film stuff seemed to not be able to compete enough or not get the right licenses. I believe you can still get BD T-800 at retail, Rambo took forever to sell out, it still may not have.

Their 1/6 was very pricey for some basic figures like their MIB, so not shocked those didn't take off, I thought they had the 1/4 scale market cornered, but EB an HT have pulled away from those, though HT is pursuing Star Wars but you could slap that logo on a steaming turd and it would sell so that's easy money, even more so than every Iron Man variant.

NECA's often seemed to think big picture and sculpted their figures to have a fair amount of parts they could reuse, I feel like McFarlane went for extreme poses that only work for the one figure, albeit pretty nicely in cases, but that's it.

If NECA couldn't recycle, we wouldn't have the extended lines we have, thankfully they're smart about things and we have a great representation of T1 and T2, I'd settle for a small sample of T3 or T4 from them, moreso T4 since I like those designs more and no one ever has done them at this scale.

a-dev
09-23-2015, 08:52 PM
They're making Alien 3 and AvP stuff so they don't seem to be averse to putting out toys based on less liked films so many years later. I say Alien 3 only because its unshakeable reputation is that it's a bad film - I happen to disagree and I quite like it. Alien Resurrection on the other hand is an absolute turd by probably even more people's estimation and yet apparently that film too will be getting figures from NECA eventually.

So I wonder is it worth it for someone to ask Randy if T3 and T4 figures will ever happen, mentioning the above point as a preamble.

Personally I'm easy, if NECA don't want to touch those films I won't really care.

What I really look forward to moreso is Ultimate T1 figures - I think both the Tech Noir and the Police Shootout looks warrant it. Basically just 2 figures that encompass all 4 of the previous T1 T-800s they released, now with the increased leg articulation (and importantly the ability to do a basic standing pose - exciting! :D )

(and importantly the ability to do a basic standing pose - exciting! :D )BTW i wanted you to pay attention to this tiny detail. you might notice that long ago, but i now try to do it whenever possible with my figures:


Note that even in a shot when the T-800 just stands, he still strikes a visually interesting action pose

http://www.jamescamerononline.com/t800axe2.pngTerminator 2: Judgment Day Depth and Complexity (http://www.jamescamerononline.com/T2Complexity.htm)of course he stood like that just because moments ago he was hitting things with a huge hammer, so he put legs wider for extra balance - and then didn't reposition them, waiting for a hammer return. so that is actually "an action pose". that's what the article's author didn't notice. but still that "legs on shoulders width" feature works better than just "basic" :)
