thanks MaulFan!

haven't gotten a chance to read every post but did they explain why the one with the exposed endoarm, Arnold is holding a gun instead of a blade?

also have the packaging photos been released yet? thank you

Holy smokes this looks NICE! I wonder what scale these will come in?

is this one accurate? when his left arm was broken off, the grenade launcher was already knocked out of possession by T-1000, the next time he grabs the grenade launcher back is after rerouting his power cell and by then half his face is already exposing the endoskull? but this one shows the damaged from the SWAT team at Cyberdynes.

I believe Tankman is going to look into cross compatability between these figures - ie. that arms&heads etc could be switched around. Hopefully that way every combination of outfit/weapon/battledamage from the film will be possible. True enough the BD figure, as pictured, shouldn't have a grenade launcher in his hand - although we'd all be pissed if he didn't come with the grenade launcher. It will be accurate for him to have the launcher with the alternate head that will have the final stage battle damage so we were told.

I'm hoping the post-SWAT assault T-800 will be possible - ie. the BD head we've seen on a BD body but with both arms intact - like the McFarlane figure from years ago only now with the Arnie likeness.

No, I'm thinking the exact same thing. The bodies look good, but the faces look a little ... well, they don't look like Arnold at all do they really?!
Seeing that this is NECA I'm not going to get too excited about the quality of these figures, because they're usually cheap and nasty.

The size may be all right for 12". But, the thing I take issue about, is that the figure's going to be in one mold (clothes, body, everything). After buying several 1/6 collectibles, I can't ever find myself returning to figures with plastic clothes molded onto plastic bodies. I guess that's what separates the run-of-the-mill action figure, from an uber nice 1/6 collectible doll :lol.

those are not the final product, those pics shown looked like 2-ups. on top of that, they are also the custom painted ones. the actual figures themselves will more then likely not look that good, unfortunatly. but they shouls still be awsome.

OT, i saw in TRU the other day, they had some new figures which included another arnie hero, conan the barbarian. looked pretty cool! i guess its like a little apetizer before the T2 figures hit. arent they supposed to come out in may?

He was talking about the McFarlane T3 figures from 2003 or so. Good figures although I never did find any versions without the sunglasses. The ones with sunglasses were great though. I will however inevitably prefer NECAs new T2s from an altogether superior film.

Come With Us If You Want To Live Awesomely
New T2 Figures Unleashed!
05/11/2009

Just in time for the release of Terminator: Salvation, NECA is proud to unveil a brand new series of 7" figures based on James Cameron’s groundbreaking T2: Judgment Day! All three figures feature new editions of the T-800, including two new Arnolds with interchangeable heads!

The still-terrifying Endoskeleton has a newly tooled head and improved articulation, with over 20 moving parts and a Plasma Rifle accessory. A leather-clad Pescadero Escape T-800 comes with a ball-jointed neck, shoulders, elbows and wrists and is packing heat in the form of a Winchester Shotgun. And last but not least, the Man or Machine T-800 boasts a ball-jointed neck and shoulders, as well as swivel biceps, waist and boots, and a pistol, in case Robert Patrick should happen along.

A 12" version of the Pescadero Escape T-800 will be released in June, and the 7" figures will be back in late summer/early fall with a whole new second series!

I hope that means we'll see a T-1000 wave at SDCC!!!

a-dev
05-12-2009, 08:14 AM
So thats a few things I can expect maybe by the end of this month and into the next - HT predator figures and these. Excellent (arnie voice).

I ordered 2 sets of each NECA trio so that I can take full advantage of interchangeable features. Oh and the 12". Can't wait. These are the figures we wanted from McFarlane years ago.

If you have a HT endoskeleton a lower end 12" figure couldn't possibly hold any interest. Unless there was some uber-cool base or something I'd likely skip that.

I'm all over the 12" Arnie though because the Sideshow 12" wasn't entirely satisfactory and no one else has done one.

i don't have a HT endoskeleton, hence why this would be a good alternative. especially with a chrome paintjob put on it. I have the NECA 18" endo and with the custom chrome paint job, it looks amazing - dare i say, almost as good as the Sideshow one.

Sadly, I see no articulation below the waist.

Anything other than swivel joints in the legs would ruin the aesthetic. I'm totally happy with the articulation thats there - much more than McFarlane ever gave them. I don't need these figures to be able to perform roundhouse kicks.

MaulFan
05-14-2009, 05:06 PM
I'm ok with the lack of articulation because of the style of these figures.

Not just the joints, but sometimes because things don't line up, articulation can ruin it. Where NECA and McFarlane basically make their "figures" as little statues, some basic stuff to vary the pose a little bit is nice.

On that note though, it would be really cool if someone, maybe even NECA, made figures along the lines of what Hasbro does nowadays with their 4" Star Wars figures but in this higher end 7" realm.

Where NECA and McFarlane basically make their "figures" as little statues, some basic stuff to vary the pose a little bit is nice.

The great thing about these NECA figures, unlike the McFarlanes of years ago, is the neutral poses. McFarlane loved sculpting figures into particular poses to the degree that any articulation they provided was pretty much useless - as you say things wouldn't line up, also heads could be permanently tilted if made to look forward (TX human version), arms in permanently outstretched&gun raised positions (MM4 T-800) etc etc. But now using a neutral stance as the default position and providing these balljoints in the shoulders and elbows - well disguised I might add - its going to give these figures more variety in the ways we can display them. And I'm preaching to the converted there I know.


On that note though, it would be really cool if someone, maybe even NECA, made figures along the lines of what Hasbro does nowadays with their 4" Star Wars figures but in this higher end 7" realm.

Yeah but thats what I buy superposeable 1/6ths for. I'm totally content with these 7" semi-statues - provided quality control is good.

I'm pretty sure they already see it's potential and that's why we're getting it, BUT, how far it goes will depend on sales.

Sure we're salivating over it, but how many people out in the market are.

I've got almost a dozen NECA figures, love their product, but I see a lot of their stuff peg warm and go on clearance, I know some stores still trying to unload AVPR stuff.

It's a tough market because the style of NECA and McFarlane plus their price, caters to a higher end collector, but that also ends up catering to a group that is looking to Hot Toys, Sideshow and Medicom products, so enticing them, no matter the quality and cost savings, with 7" figures when higher end 12" ones are out there, plust statues and all, it's a tough market to be super successful in.

Before Hot Toys and Sideshow were really prominent and successful, NECA could probably clean up the market as their stuff would be some of the best available, but now, they're competing for money in a group with even higher level items enticing them.

I'm optimistic about these, I think they'll do fine. T2 has major recognition amongst the masses and with T4 in the cinemas it'll be on people's minds. Its certainly the best possible time to bring these out IMO.

Definitely heres hoping for a similarly great set of T-1000s. I even wish they'd take a risk and make young John connor but I know thats unlikely. And T1 figures would be grail items given the fact that so little merchandise of this kind exists for that film.

I'm bored. Its list time! (even though I probably already did a list earlier in the thread!)

The T-1000 wave:

#1Galleria encounter (no battle damage)
#2Biker cop (no battle damage)
#3pescadero battle (bullet hits - split head - hook arms)
#4Steel Mill T-1000 (split down side by pole - stabbing finger)

#1 and #2 have the prospects of full chrome variants (we know NECA love variants and in this case I'd fully support them)

Torsos should be seperable from legs thus we could turn #1 into an undamaged #4 (as the T-1000 retained his biker cop boots in the steel mill scenes)

Also the torso from #3 should be usable with the head and arms from #1 to create a battle damaged Galleria encounter figure (even though bullet hits might not be exactly accurate)

I omitted these versions as McFarlane kinda already did them - Donut head T-1000 and Exploded T-1000

I omitted 'Frozen' Biker T-1000 as I simply doubt they'd consider it unless part of a box set or something.

So whats everyone elses ideal set of figures?

The T-1000 wave:

#1Galleria encounter (no battle damage)
#2Biker cop (no battle damage)
#3pescadero battle (bullet hits - split head - hook arms)
#4Steel Mill T-1000 (split down side by pole - stabbing finger)

Ok then, if CelticP is right and I'm being too hopeful here I shall adjust my list down to just 2.

#1 Galleria encounter (no battle damage - for a basic figure of Robert Patrick as T-1000 - McFarlane never made an undamaged representation - this would cover it)

#2 Steel Mill T-1000 (split down side figure)

These are 2 versions of the character we've never seen done in this scale. McFarlane covered the donut head, torso battle-damage, hook arms and exploded version. I left out the full Biker version because the T-1000 has no major interraction with the T-800 while in this outfit. When he does he is seated in a vehicle. The ''split down the side'' T-1000 would work great with the battledamage T-800 that we're getting as long as the pole weapon was included. Meanwhile the Galleria T-1000 could pass for the undamaged steel mill version reasonably enough (boots schmoots). And it could still have a chrome version as a cheapish third option (emerging from the canal explosion).

However I'd still love if NECA matched it 4-4 with their T-800 wave.

CelticPredator

MaulFan
05-15-2009, 08:53 PM
I would think anyone who'd want to buy all the T-800 figures would be likely to buy any T-1000's made, if they're done as well. I think the majority of buyers for these figures will be ones who'll buy up anything T2 that NECA offers.

a-dev
05-15-2009, 08:56 PM
T-800 is a surer seller since everyone primarily associates Schwarzennegger with Terminator. I think they'll get away with all those different versions of him. Maybe if they had thought enough ahead to make&release them 2 for 2 at a time. 2 of the T-800s plus 2 of the T-1000s Then later the other 2 T-800s and the other 2 T-1000s. Isolating the T-1000 into its own mini-series may have to mean fewer incarnations being produced. I'm hoping not.

MaulFan
05-15-2009, 08:59 PM
Yeah, Arnold's a sure fire seller if anything Terminator, but I really think it's going to be a niche group buying all these up, and in that niche I think anything T2 will be buy worthy, again if it comes out well. NECA can be hit or miss with figures, if T-1000s were misses, that'd hurt, but if they come out as nice as the T-800s, I think they'll work. I do see T-1000 only working at 7" scale unless the 12" version were some crazy battle damage one that even Hot Toys couldn't pull off.

CelticPredator
05-15-2009, 09:05 PM

a-dev
05-15-2009, 09:05 PM
Thats interesting actually, a battle damaged T-1000 from Hot toys would be unlike anything they've done before I suspect. How to combine fabric clothing with 'liquid metal' sculpting. Whether to make an entirely once-off body type for a T-1000 thats been cut in half shoulder to waist!

MaulFan
05-15-2009, 09:30 PM
If I showed someone a T-1000 toy (just Rob in a cop suit) they wouldnt care. If I show Arnold, they would go "Woah! Terminator!"

But you're probably talking about generic people, and such people aren't likely to spend $15 on mutliple figures, probaly just one, if that.

Like I said, i think the people willing to shell out $15 per figure and to get all 4 T-800s would be equally willing to do so for T-1000s.

CelticPredator

Everyone doesn't love them, they're sitting on a shelf everywhere.

It seems like overkill, but the three Arnold figures are all iconic depictions of the character. I wouldn't be able to choose between them.

The Endo is a whole other entity IMO, so naturally I'd get it.

I'm sure McFarlane are done with Terminator...or seemingly any other non-computer game line. Apparently its a cliche to say that but it happens to be pretty much true. So you'd be talking about NECA which, based on these T2 figures, would not be a bad thing at all.

Not much love for the T-1000 amongst the recent posters in this thread. Maybe CelticP is right that he simply would not be as popular even amongst action figure fans.

Has anyone known NECA to do box sets? If they did then a frozen T-1000 versus battle-damage T-800 w/pistol (for the Hasta la Vista moment) plus some environment pieces would be cool.

The 2 handed gun-pose for the Pescadero figure, together with the sunglasses suggest the figure is actually based on the scenes in the mall and not the hospital (I called it Galleria because of the line in the film - girl - 'I think he said he was going to the Galleria right?' T-1000 - 'the galleria?')

In the hospital scenes when he fired the shotgun he did it one-handed and he had lost his sunglasses by that point. I suppose 'Pescadero escape' sounded better than 'Mall escape', 'Galleria encounter' etc.

But damn what a year for toy goodness of and from Arnie's best films! These 7" figures, the 12" figure and Hot toys Dutch, Billy and Predator. All grail items for many people.

Aside from the odd Endo Face, and the MoM Term, The Hospital escape ACTUALLY looks like the prototype. Unlike most of NECA's stuff.

Uh oh. I think the paint looks pretty bad on these figures guys. I wanted not to be saying that but it looks to be the case. The lips look stupid and the sunglasses look very thick on the part that reaches back over the ears and the skin colour goes over it. And as you've all already pointed out the endos face looks totally inaccurate.

Also a bit too much blood on the exposed endo arm for my liking.

That would look wierd too. I think if we could somehow cut out a bit between the face and the glasses but that'd be tough to do and involve a bit of repainting anyway.

It never occurred to me that the sunglasses Arnie would have this problem - guess I was thinking of the McFarlane figure that had a seperate sunglasses accessory.....which I may now have a use for on the sunglassesless NECA figure!!

nah its a big step down from the prototypes and even they could have been better around the eyes. Great sculpts but the paint leaves a lot to be desired for me - the eyes and the lips look bizarre. The sculpted sunglasses are very thick at the temples and painted the skin colour from what I can tell which looks pretty stupid. This is disappointing to me because I can't repaint for s>>t.

Thats because i snapped the head on this lol, but i just glued the neck rods back in so i could tilt the head down more.

This one looks way better then the new one and way better then any Endo made in this scale including the McFarlane..and the playmates ones are garbage.

They probably are. I misjudged the initial packaged shots - of course they'd be good - no such luck with the figures we're actually getting. Far as I can see the NECA pessimists were right - the protos are always misleading. I believe Tankman though when he blames the factories. He can sculpt them as well as he wants but the paint on the end result is beyond his control. The sculpts are fantastic - the best we've seen IMO, certainly in this scale - damn shame about the paint. Thats the Arnie figures - the endo not so much. The headsculpt is brutal IMO. Mcfarlane did a far better endoskull while NECA seem to have gotten the body proportions down better - don't understand the lack of neck though. McF did it too, gave their endo no neck - WTF?

It does in some pics. One eyesocket looks bigger than the other.

I've posted these pics a lot on this board, but they seem appropriate here - the figure looked quite good right out of the box, but with some customizing, repainting, as well as a fully customized base, he looks like this:

:banghead Awful paint Awful paint! Hasbro-like in its execution but at least Star wars figures have the excuse of being only 3-4 inches tall. Arnie looks like he's pulling faces - like hes deliberately thrusting his jaw forward. What a let-down. And Dutch's pinhead, Predator being too short...sounds like a lot of whining but after looking forward to these, and these in particular, for so long...:banghead

Hoping upon hope I get lucky with the paint on my NECA T2s.
