I'm very interested despite the fact they won't be in scale with eachother let alone the figures. Presumably the T2 offerings will be the flying and ground HKs. I'm guessing they won't do contemporary vehicles like the liquid Nitrogen truck etc.

I can think of a few contemporary vehicles from t2 that i'd like cinemachines to do:

I'd buy them. I think Micro-machines did a line of them back in the day. I doubt they're in NECA's plans though. Maybe, as real as opposed to fictional vehicles, they'd require additional licenses and so on.

Just thinking about John Connor again though - is T2 not one of those films where the actor likeness rights come attached to the overall license? Or am I misunderstanding it or remembering wrong?

Micro machines did do them along with mini figures, I had the Cryoco tanker and tow truck set, wish I kept them though I'm sure they could easily be found on eBay.

Received ultimate Sarah from amazon today. I didn't plan on picking her up, but with the T-1000 almost upon us I had a change of heart. Glad I did, she's fantastic. Spot on likeness, clean paint apps, and excellent accessories. They all feel very sturdy, no warping like with the T-800 weapons. Only had 3 stuck joints, the knees and the right hip. Hot water and patience sorted them out. I did have to adjust her sunglasses, one side wasn't pushed into place all the way. Thankfully there was hardly any glue used and I was able to pop out the glasses stem and then push them in. They were such a tight fit I didn't have to use any glue.

Two observations- You can remove her vest and belt if you carefully pop her in half at the waist, it's a ball and socket joint. Also the shotgun stock has a locking feature so it doesn't flop back and forth. In either position if you squeeze the hinge it locks into place.

Overall I highly recommend her. Worth every penny.

a-dev
01-23-2016, 02:30 PM
Wise choice, excellent figure.

So it seems the sunglasses could perhaps be pried off and even put onto the other pony-tail sculpt. Although, I went looking for the sunglasses from the McFarlane figure and they do actually fit pretty well and are held in place by her hair, almost as if the hair was specifically sculpted to enable this. They look a bit like swimming goggles viewed from below but not too bad really.

Didn't realise that about the shotgun stock, sure enough you're right. And I went and glued one of mine.

Lastly, do you reckon her right leg is longer than her left? It seems to be the case on mine and even in that boxed pic it kinda looks like it.

On mine she leans slightly to her left more when standing up. Is it the same for yours? I can't tell if it's the way the feet can be positioned/pivoted that makes her do that. It's not really a big issue for me as she stands fairly well. The only issue I'm having is getting the knife out of her sheath, seems pretty stuck in there.

Other than that, this is another home run from NECA. I also got the ultimate T-1000 as well, another kick ass figure.

For a starters both the NECA and McFarlane endoskeleton arms are out of scale with any given human Arnold figure. Unaltered, either arm is way too long so I had to compromise and butcher some spares (which were already beyond salvage from previous operations) to make the forearm shorter. Now the forearm is totally inaccurate and a bit mish-mashy looking - however, since the Genisys endo is a changed design it wouldn't have been accurate anyway. I don't like that NECA hand either, too big.

Secondly, even though I think it is accurate to the movie, it just doesn't look right having a totally clean endoskeleton arm attached to an Arnie figure. I can't help but feel that arm should still have flesh and blood remnants.

Anyway I didn't make any irreversible changes to the Pops figure, nothing is glued on and I didn't need to carve him up or anything so at least there's that.

To be honest I'm really impressed by how good the Robert Patrick likeness is on the T-1000 despite the sculpt being a few years old.

If there's more T2 figures in the works then I wonder if we'll get a re-release of liquid nitrogen T-1000 but with articulated legs? That, or the motorcycle cop or liquid metal version. It would be cool if they added a removable shattered arm and leg for liquid nitrogen though it could be tricky to tool.

I used to think she was alright but yeah, awful now. Their T-800 probably held up the best, although it needed the NECA sculpt to bring it up to par. It's a bit too tall and thin in the legs is all.

Maybe a SWAT shootout version - a BD figure with clean legs and ideally a teargas launcher.

Well, I do. :) Very, VERY cool idea and great execution!

I just picked up all 3 Ultimates the other day and decided to dig out all my other NECA Terminators and display them. I am not close to having it all set up yet, but this how I am doing each one-

240475

...and that is my customized Battle Damage "Ultimate" T-800 sneaking in there. :) Thankfully, NECA used the same torso on the Ultimate T-800 as they did with their previous releases... So I just popped the legs off a Final Battle and put the Ultimate legs on there. :) Has all the same articulation as the standard Ultimate release, but the battle damaged chest and hands make more sense with the battle damaged head.

And YankeesFanBoy- I personally LOVE the Ultimate T-800. Yeah, the upper torso, heads, and weapons are all stuff we have seen before, but getting all those display options with one release AND all the new articulation on the legs for under $25 makes him a steal.

Well, only if you feel a completist need with these figures and if you can think of a different T-800 variant you'd like to set up. Other than the articulated hips and knees it offers nothing new and is a little shorter than the other T-800s.

It's certainly a great figure for anyone who doesn't have the previous ones.

I think the articulation makes it a good one for T2 Battle Across Time - he did a lot of running in that so a wide leg stance works for it. Although NECA already released a Battle Across Time T-800 and it had a cool plasma rifle specific to that which ideally you'd have. Then you'd have to appropriate that figure for something else.

Sallah, I love your name displays, really adds to it.

Thanks for the comment on the Genisys Pops custom. As I said I haven't done anything permanent to the Pops figure. There's an endoskeleton shoulder socket tucked inside his jacket to allow the arm to attach but I didn't even see a need to glue it on. So I can take off the arm and put on the shoulder stump that NECA provided if I so wish.

I thought I'd have to perform surgery on Pops to get this to work. I didn't, which was great, although there was that complication about the endoskeleton arm itself being too long.

I was so focussed on the name displays that I failed to notice the stands aswell. Some people don't like stands but unless you've got your figures in dioramas where they would obviously spoil the look I think they're perfectly fine. And those circular stands with just the peg for the foot don't always work with NECA figures.

Great set up you got there, sallah. What are the stands you use to display Sarah's heads? Are they just normal stands for 3-4 inch dolls?

So I noticed after mixing and matching heads on my ultimate T-1000, the heads have started to become loose when attached to the ball joint, slightly more so than they originally were. His bullet hole head now feels quite loose on the damaged torso when moving it, and his split open head doesn't even really pop on to the ball joints properly without coming off easily. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

It's not really a massive problem and this is the type of figure I could easily buy more than one anyway.

You and your obsession with Arnolds hair. :lol

I know. :lol NECA are great with sculpting his hair, the police shootout sculpt is an exception to the rule with them. Maybe they know it but it was a budget issue.

Anyway I got my Ultimate T-1000s today - nice figure, QC seems much better than the original T-1000 releases thank ****.

However there's a few things short of making him truly ultimate - the sword arm (originally came with Motorcycle Cop version), a left-hand trigger finger and I would have gone with the fully split head instead of the ''healing'' head. Maybe it was a case of they could only fit so much inside the blister.

I also kinda wish they would have gone with the Galleria battle-damage for the chest instead of just reissuing the Pescadero battle-damage. The other thing is, and this also applies to the previous T-1000 releases, the bullet damage parts are more like exit wounds, applied onto the figure instead of into the figure. This is one thing that McFarlane got right with the Movie Maniacs T-1000 - the bullet damage was recessed into the chest and there were exit wounds on the back. I'm sure there's a reason NECA didn't do this, it probably came down to money.

As regards the headsculpts I've always had a feeling that the clean sculpt was a bit too long in the face and I've just now noticed that it definitely seems longer compared to the Donut head. I think the latter has it right with a slightly shorter face. Otherwise very good likenesses.

Lastly, although I'm in work and can't compare, I'd say this one is definitely shorter than the previous T-1000s and is thus probably accurately sized compared to the Ultimate T-800. Thing is I wish they'd stayed consistent with the previous figures, I don't like this trend of figures getting smaller.

^^that looks like a lot of complaining but believe it or not I'm actually pretty happy with the figure overall. Really glad to have a T-1000 that doesn't feel like it's going to break, nice enough paint apps, the interchangeable torso is a great idea and I can now replace the previous weird looking scaly-skinned Donut head I had before.

Overall I'm very pleased with this figure. I love the wide variety of display options thanks to multitude of alternate parts he comes with. My only gripe is that I wish they would have included the other "split open" head rather than the one here where his head is putting itself back together. A few paint touch ups here and there and he will be good to go.

Also, whomever at amazon packed this figure for shipping was extremely lazy. Rather than putting it in a box, they just stuck it in a plastic bag with a label on it. No bubble wrap, no protection, just a bag like what clothes are typically shipped in. As a result the packaging suffered some damage. Thankfully the figure wasn't harmed.

01-27-2016, 03:28 PM
I guess I have one more criticism of the T-1000 - the liquid metal parts are a bit dull. Just comparing the bullet hits to those of the Genisys T-1000 and there's actually a noticeable difference, they're more chrome-like on the Genisys figure.

But otherwise, damned if this figure isn't tempting me to replace all my older gammy T-1000 figures with their dried out looking plastic, warped calves and my crude repair jobs on all the broken limbs....

Never seen that reviewer before.

Curious - how come no youtube reviewers ever mention the supremely awful QC on the older T-1000 figures? Was I just extremely unlucky to get an awful batch from both the US and the UK? The fact that every single one of my (many) T-1000 figures broke at almost every possible joint sorta made me think the problem was widespread, particularly since I got some of them from BBTS and some of them from staractionfigures in the UK. It didn't seem like it could be an unfortunate coincidence and yet I don't think I've ever seen it mentioned by youtube reviewers.

Buncha newbs.

2009 was a major year for us fans of T2. Remember seeing that 4 figure line-up at Comic-con or Toyfair, whichever it was. It blew my mind to see the Pescadero Escape, Man or Machine, Cyberdyne Showdown and Battle-Damage figures all at once and, it seemed to me at the time, completely out of nowhere. I hadn't read beforehand that NECA were making them or seen any unpainted prototype teasers or anything.

Probably one of the most memorable toy-related surprises I've ever had, tied with seeing the new kenner Star Wars line in a toy shop back in '95 or '96.

Hah, remember when T2 was only 10 years old.

Yeah something went wrong at the last and they were forced into removing his likeness entirely. So disappointing because the sculpts with his likeness (and not a bad job for the time) had been shown. Of course I still bought 3 of them I think, only one of which remains fully intact in my collection with a NECA head replacing the non-likeness McFarlane head.

The McFarlane T-1000 is still our only representation of the exploded T-1000 so it's still very much worth having in the collection. The endo, despite its many inaccuracies, remained the best one in the scale for years. Only NECA's most recent endo beats it, although there's some aspects that I still prefer on the McFarlane one - namely the articulation and the hollow between pistons and on parts of the thighs which are all filled-in on even the best NECA endo.

The weirdest thing for me looking back on the McFarlane Movie Maniacs Terminator line is that it was even included under the banner of ''Movie Maniacs'', a line of horror characters, monsters and deranged killers. And those poster stands were so ill-suited to Terminator.

Well I never had one of those. If memory serves I did join the collectors club so as to buy the Corporal Hicks with helmet and shotgun but if I ever received a card like that I don't think I kept it.

I see you're using what looks like a large bookshelf unit for your stuff. Same here, although yours look nicer. Mine are far from ideal because most of the shelves aren't tall enough for a full standing Hot Toys figure. I've been saying it for years but one day I will retire them, or solely use them for NECA figures.

They work pretty well. The top shelf is not adjustable but perfect for hot toys. I prefer to look slightly up at the hot toys. I don't have that many so I don't have to worry about space.

Buncha newbs.

2009 was a major year for us fans of T2. Remember seeing that 4 figure line-up at Comic-con or Toyfair, whichever it was. It blew my mind to see the Pescadero Escape, Man or Machine, Cyberdyne Showdown and Battle-Damage figures all at once and, it seemed to me at the time, completely out of nowhere. I hadn't read beforehand that NECA were making them or seen any unpainted prototype teasers or anything.

Probably one of the most memorable toy-related surprises I've ever had, tied with seeing the new kenner Star Wars line in a toy shop back in '95 or '96.

-edit- actually seeing Mcfarlane's Movie Maniacs T-800 and T-1000 was pretty big aswell...only for that to be somewhat ruined by how the T-800's headsculpt ended up looking.


Yup, we saw them on rebelscum. I remember we were talking about them. To this day I'd love to own those original 2-ups that were on display there. I was blown away.

^The Man or Machine one in particular, the actual figure didn't translate quite so well.


My Terminator NECA-love is back in full swing as a result of these Ultimate figures. I had assumed NECA was finished with these films, now we've got T1 Ultimates coming and apparently more T2 stuff aswell.

I took all my old variants back out of the box and I have in mind to buy more of the current batch of Ultimates despite swearing I wouldn't replace all my shoddy broken T-1000s. I want to make a Galleria battle-damage version and perhaps even customise it so that the bullet squibs are recessed into the chest as opposed to sitting on top of it. Also by jove I managed to get a set of reasonably straight stabbing finger hands so I want to set up the 'call to John' scene with Sarah Connor, although I'll need Steel Mill T-1000 legs for that.

Don't need any more T-800s but I'll probably be looking to get more T-1000s and a couple more Sarah Connors, maybe another Genisys T-1000 as he has the best (and most) bullet squibs.

Just when I thought I was out....

Yeah, he was about 6'-1.5" in his prime, but even if he was around 6'1'' in T2, he had those thick boots, so he was probably closer to 6'3'' in the film...maybe a little less. Sarah Connor also had thick boots, so she was around 5'-7'' maybe. Patrick was probably closer to 6'-1.5'' with the cop shoes and the high hair, but the figure does look a bit tall in that photo, but he's still closer in height to Arnie than Sarah. With Sarah, there's about a 6'' inch height difference.

The older T-800s with the pre-posed legs are definitely taller, but not massively so, than the ultimate T-1000 which I think is about right. That combination better conveys Cameron's idea that the T-1000 shouldn't look like a physical match for Arnold and yet has the agility to beat him around the place.

I always thought the height comparison was a little too close to call between the older T-800s and the older T-1000s.

Why does everybody try to short change Arnie? There is absolutely no way he was less than 6' in his prime. Everyone shrinks as they age, so maybe now, but not back then. He used to tower over all the other body builders. Granted, they are normally shorter to begin with, but here is a picture of him posing barefoot right next to his friend Franco Columbo who was 5"5". Arnold is clearly an entire head above Franco. So even if Franco was only 5'2", add about 10" and he's already at 6'. I have no problem believing the 6'2" claim.

I knew his legs were shorter than the previous version but so too are the Ultimate T-800's legs. With the T-800 being shorter they had to correspondingly make the T-1000 shorter. Now, I don't know if it was intentional on NECA's part to make these figures shorter than the previous versions, maybe someone could ask them on twitter. I'd rather they'd kept them consistent with all the other figures myself.

I don't really think the T-1000's legs are internally out of proportion, they don't look unnaturally so to my eyes. Personally I think, if anything, the problem lies with the Sarah figure - her legs are too long. I'd have taken a smidge off her thighs and ankles to shorten her just a bit.

I tend to agree. The legs look fine on the new T1000, but it is very difficult to tell at this scale when something is only very slightly off. Maybe the original offerings were thought to be too long. Either way, it doesn't bother me. I'm not one that has to group all like things together. I actually think that when you get too many like items grouped together, it just looks too busy. My displays have to look aesthetically pleasing, so I'll even mix and match different scales. To each his own. I'm just happy that we continue to get new offerings.

The newer T-1000 has the same height next to the older ones even though they were in a flexed legs stance. In Sarah's case, the only issue I see is the unnatural concave shin (and not so feminine thighs, but that's a different story). 30 sec in hot water, a little pressure applied and they look straight as they should now. I must admit, the figure looks a lot better in hand, so my initial reaction was kinda exaggerated.

Maulfan kind of reinstated doubt in my mind. I think the old T-1000 probably did have the correct proportions. The new one isn't unnatural looking but nevertheless the legs may be too short for Robert Patrick.

However I think I'll take the figure that doesn't fall to pieces in your hand, the new one. I definitely plan to buy more of him and I wouldn't mind seeing an Ultimate Steel Mill version (for the different pants & footwear) although they did already put the Donut head with this release so I'm not sure if we should take that as a statement that there won't be a new Steel Mill T-1000 release....

MaulFan
02-01-2016, 10:10 AM
I just feel like in the side by side photo, the T-1000 almost seems in the same proportions as the T-800, Patrick is most definitely skinnier in overall build to Arnold, I don't care about the heights but that was one of the more wow factors of T2, the T-1000 looked like no physical match for T-800 but could kick his ass.

If anyone here is on NECA's twitter I wonder could you ask if a reissue (or Ultimate figure) of the Steel Mill version of the T-1000 is in their plans? I'd like to put together a few mini-scenes and for the steel mill segment of the film the T-1000 needs the pants and boots from the Motorcycle Cop outfit. The previous figures are long sold out and cost too much on ebay.

Perhaps they also might clue us in if they'll be making Pretzel Man T-1000 or the other possibility where he almost gets cleaved in two by the T-800.

How could they get that wrong? It's not like there aren't plenty of references. Just look at an HCG or Pegasus tank. This better be a simple goof on the part of the person taking the picture. Maybe the turret was separate from the base before the pictures were taken.

i think those don't exist yet other than in 3D model.
even the colored pictures are just a model with skin on it, it's not a real thing, check the fake simplified shadow.
so it's easily fixable once their supervisor sees how crazy the modeller was :lol
on these shots even the head is upside down.

Great pics Maulfan. I forgot it was you who modded a Police Shootout figure that could pull his elbow tighter for that gun-toting pose.



As for the Tank HK, goes to show how little attention I've paid to them, I didn't notice that mistake - I'm just Arnie's hairdresser. But what a mistake it is. Upside-down head aswell? Weird. Hopefully it's not too late for all this to be corrected.

I can't remember who did it first it's been years, but another figure customized it first. It's just a great pose. I welcome and ultimate for other options, I'd like a no glasses, exposed eye head.

Hope Tech Noir gets better elbow articulation, one of the most limited figures I've ever had.

Yep, the elbow joint on the Tech Noir is barely more than a swivel really. I don't see them changing it though.

The exposed endo-eye head is pretty good although in my collection right now it just sits as a spare. There's only two movie scenes it's accurate for, eye surgery and later when he's sitting on the bed looking through Sarah's diary. The existing figures can't recreate those scenes. An ultimate T-800 that can sit could do the latter but you'd need at least a bed and something that looks like a diary to make the scene, no point otherwise. And we don't have the arms to do an eye surgery figure which I guess would be the T1 line's equivalent of T2's Man or Machine but NECA have not seen fit to specifically make it.

Well, it's a better likeness overall. The face, the hair and the body all look more like Linda Hamilton in T2 than Hot Toys.

The only thing I'm unsure about on the NECA figure is those legs. I just can't quite shake the idea that they're too long and thin. Or they look thin because they're so long. If a bit had been shaved off the length of the thighs and the ankles she'd look more in proportion, aswell as maybe being a more accurate height next to the T-800 and T-1000.

Hmmm, Steel mill with the semi-BD headsculpt (and both full arms) could tempt me at 1:4. Who am I kidding, any Terminator figure at 1:4 could tempt me but that one might be a preference of mine.

I was not a fan of Genisys either... But I bought all 3 figures. Much like their AVP Predators, the NECA figures are WAY better than the film they are based on.

All three are worth picking up. Amazing figures for around $20 each.

Actually yeah I think you're right, I remember seeing some loose Tech Noir hands in my spare parts bag.

DiFabio

The only Ultimate terminator figure that has impressed me has been Sarah Connor so far, for obvious reasons.


I have a bunch of the original Tech Noir and the battle damaged DIY surgery T-800 with pretty great paint applications. The new legs are nice, but I'm not too fussed with 8 new points of articulation when he's extremely limited in the elbows anyway. I'm content with my "shooting at Kyle Reese behind the bar" pose. Wasn't fussed with Ultimate Uncle Bob either. Personally, I like the Pescadero and Battle damaged versions better.

Now if they cleaned up the head sculpts, added that nifty hidden ab crunch under their shirt like they did on their '89 Keaton Batman and Ledger Joker and maybe fixed those elbow joint cuts for more movement, I'd be all over them.



I'll probably get the Ultimate police shootout though since it always bugged me that he had the same pose as the Tech Noirs. Plus, he'll probably have nice glossy glasses like he Ultimate T2.

a-dev
02-13-2016, 09:15 AM
I really just want a Tech Noir T-800 who can stand neutral, just looking like a beast. This will allow that. The old figure has me covered for shooting at Reese in the bar.

Although as Maufan said we could do with a hand that can hold the uzi properly and I don't think we're getting that.

I'm going to assume that this Ultimate Tech Noir has,

Makes chronological sense, moreso than the Uncle Bob release which was a mish mash from the entire film. That T2 battle-damage knee complicates the whole Ultimate articulation thing so maybe they only foresaw putting out a single T2 release. With T1 its easier to put out all the looks in their proper order in 2 different figures.

Yeah, Ultimate T2 only made for good Cyberdyne shootout and T2:3D (sans Plasma rifle) figures.

Honestly, that would seem like the perfect time to get John Connor out there. Yeah, it's probably a pipe dream, but it'd be refreshing along side the obvious onslaught of "new" ultimate damaged T-800 and ultimate motorcycle and Steel mill T-1000 they have planned.

They probably don't think they need to do anything new with these beyond the articulation because the old ones are sold out and this is them providing another opportunity for people to get T1 figures.

I do wish they'd do an eye surgery figure though, he'd be the Man or Machine figure for T1.

As grateful as I feel for what they've made so far I'll be a little disappointed if their anniversary offerings don't include some entirely new variants for the standard movie line (as opposed to just Ultimate SA mish-mashes of previously released stuff or Retro figures or Kenner tributes).

There's definitely some remaining potential for brand new figures from the movie:

SWAT shootout T-800 (would actually be a mish-mash but it could come with the Teargas Launcher and a bandolier with only 5 grenades left)
John Connor
Cleaved T-1000 (with steel rod)
Pretzel Man T-1000

They could also do a liquid metal version of the Motorcycle cop and Steel Mill T-1000s but I would have less interest in those because the best they can seem to do at low end is a flat silver paintjob.

The most packed figure they could release would obviously be the Cyberdyne one. Really all the other ones are light on accessories if they stick to the format of the 1:10 figures.

Pescadero Escape - shotgun.

Also the Pescadero and full battle damaged T-800 already had 12" 2-up figures produced of them back in 2009 and 2010. I'm personally glad that the 1/4 will depict the Steel Mill look after his clean look and before he loses his limbs and most of the flesh on his face.


Maybe this QS will be the figure to introduce the tear gas grenade launcher (which could ultimately be scaled down for another 7" figure someday). I'd be cool with a pistol, the grenade launcher and the tear gas launcher for the 1:4 figure as long as those grenades on his strap are removable. That would make for a killer quarter scale figure that depicts these versions,

I have a feeling the jinx will continue and the Teargas Launcher will be overlooked once again unless someone goes on twitter and Richard Yang's the hell out of that pic of the T-800 using it. And the steel rod too. Although Hot Toys gave us that for 1:6 and Enterbay did for 1:4, I'd love to have the Teargas launcher and the steel rod at 1:10.

I wish they kept doing those 2-ups, I don't know why they stopped that. I loved buying that 12" Peacadero at Toys R Us and the electronic 12" Battle damage at FYE. They should have done more.

- chromed out T-1000
- Galleria T-1000
- Tech Noir T-800
- '89 Keaton Batman
- Returns Penguin
- Robocop
- various Aliens and Predators


Like what the hell possessed them to do those two anyway? I assume it's a license rights issue, but it wasn't then? Those were so strange. Those were the closest we ever got to the actual 2-up prototypes displayed at the various shows and conventions

I'm personally hoping for a full BD figure but I think the steel mill pre limb loss is most likely. Reason being is that figure has more interchangeability for parts reuse with a plain Galleria or Cyberdyne look.

I'm down, upgraded version with the two Tech Noir figures in one set now. NECA should have done that with their T2, put Steel Mill and semi BD parts in one set, swap out full arm and BD arm like Pops and then it would have made more sense.

I'll take 2 I think. One Tech Noir for just standing there and one for arm surgery.

Is that a hand for holding the forceps? Doesn't seem like its a trigger hand since those are on the figure.

I wanted more at the time but I don't really care now.

I remember we wanted a chrome T-1000 because that was something Hot Toys couldn't do but it wouldn't really have been chrome from NECA, it'd have been plain silver, which some could have repainted but not me. Any time I tried chroming stuff, well, I obviously wasn't doing it right.

If the paint looks good in hand, I'm certainly picking up this Tech Noir version. Don't care about the added articulation, nor the extra parts even, but the original one looks pretty pale and lifeless on the shelf.

These ultimate versions are pretty cool. I'd gladly pay extra for the different heads and extra accessories. Got Sarah on ebay a few days back. She's great. I've really missed this line, and I hope the rereleases allow for more new characters and variants along the way.

I passed on Ultimate T2 T-800 because the articulated legs weren't enough for me, but now that I can have this Tech Noir sit with the damaged arm and "fix it up" like my Hot Toys figure in 1/6, I dunno, I got to!

A few shots of mine. I didn't alter the bike in any way yet, those handlebar lights aswell as the side tail-lights have to come off. Today I was just trying to get the figure sitting on the bike as correctly as possible without any modding and I'm actually reasonably happy with it. He's still a bit too high but not stupidly so.

By the way, look at the neck on this figure. That's Arnie's neck. Puts the Hot Toys figures to shame with their stiff, detail-free cylinders with heads awkwardly plopped on top.

that's just beautiful! so much better in scale and shape than HT on Tamiya.

It's so beautiful that part of me is going to hate myself when I take a blade to it to cut off those excess lights. I think it's going to take a while for me to build myself up to actually doing it. And although the bike should be dirty with sand I don't think I want to do that either - the shine just looks so nice.

I'm gonna say it, just like how I ended up preferring my NECA Powerloader over the Hot Toys one, I think I prefer this little thing to the Tamiya bike. The Tamiya feels so plastic and hollow like if I just squeeze it too hard when I pick it up the whole thing will cave in on itself. This feels sturdier, especially being screwed onto the stand. That said I'm not planning to sell my Tamiya, I don't know how I'd even package that up. It'd inevitably break at multiple points while in transit. I lost count of how many times I had to glue the handlebars back on so they'd be a likely candidate, and every time it's happened it has been more and more difficult to reglue them. And I worry about that whole front wheel apparatus.

Anyway, I fully recommend one of these Maisto 1:10 bikes. Keep your eyes peeled on ebay and amazon for a black one. I didn't get lucky with the price but nevertheless I do feel lucky to have gotten this.

Yeah, the hair and general shape is dead-on. Hot Toys can't seem to get those things right. Also an advantage is the all-in-one head and neck sculpt. A similar shot with Hot Toys DX10 or MMS117 would have the gaps of the ball-jointed head visible and would ironically look more toyish than this NECA figure does.

MaulFan
02-21-2016, 08:56 AM
Gaps are the real issue with HT, it's more Arnie's unique neck structure and not being able to really capture that without the head and neck being one piece, especially in T2 even more than T1.

Even NECA is generally going down the road of ball-joint heads now. See the Genisys T-800 figures. Not the most offensive ball-joint heads I've ever seen but I'm glad we've got the existing T2 and T1 sculpts from NECA because if they made them fresh today it seems they'd be ball-jointed and, IMO, wouldn't look as good.....actually that's not just an opinion, it's an objective fact - they wouldn't look as good.

Possible option for the saddlebags

Not entirely accurate and a little big perhaps but better than the other ones I've seen. This guy only ships to the US, ruling me out. I might keep that bike in mind though for future searches.

Thanks for the heads up a-dev. Those bags look pretty good. I will keep that model bike in mind. Maybe I can find one for a really good price ;)

Nope, wasn't me. Maybe someone else on here grabbed it. Since it would just be for the bags, I will keep looking for one that is maybe broken that someone is selling for a low price.

Seems like whoever it was bought the other one that was listed aswell. Hopefully, assuming it was no coincidence, they will post the results here so we'll know what those saddlebags would look like.

That's pretty cool. Hasn't that been one of the holy grails of achievement in robotics, a bipedal robot that can navigate uneven terrain and stay on its feet?

That is absolutely remarkable isn't it.

I've seen a bunch of those videos & they never cease to make my jaw drop. The four legged one was impressive enough, but yeah.

I felt bad for the bot in that last minute or so; damn bully engineer. :lol

This is all we need......... Something to completely wipe out the work force. Mark my words, the day any of this comes into real reality, were in big trouble. Don't believe me? Notice any self check out stands lately? And that there's Barely any human workers at a cash register?
May seem cool, but be scared.......

Lovely pics Scarrviper.


And Stefan, great shot. I have no idea about painting but obviously it would be ideal if you could repaint this black. Otherwise it looks perfect

Thanks. I've been having too much fun lately with the 3 T2 ultimates.

Very jealous of those of you who have been able to find a motorcycle for their t-800.

I didn't even contemplate it until we got a figure that could sit but now that I have one, yeah, totally worth it. I realised I didn't have a ''Big'' item for my NECA Terminator collection - for Alien I had the Powerloader and Queen, for Robocop I had ED-209, for Predator I had the trophy wall - the Harley for Terminator balances the scales.

Keep watching ebay and amazon.

NIB black 1:10 Harley Fatboy identical to the one that I have on page 520 up for bid now on eBay:

BTW guys, if you are planning to buy an 1/10 harley dont buy the maisto one, I bought one and get very dissapointed about the quality the model is closer like the used in the movie, but the quality in ERTL is SUPERIOR!!

Huh I was thrilled with the quality of the Maisto one. I'll look up this ERTL though out of curiosity.

The ERTL bike is the one that I have and it is really nice. I had never heard of them before I found the bike on eBay.

Ertl.com (http://ertl.com/index.asp)

They mainly make model and toy farm equipment and I do not believe that they make model motorcycles any longer.

Maisto also makes very nice model bikes so either one would be great to have imo.

Ertl is one of the oldest makers of die cast vehicles, back to the 80s at least, as they made many when I was a kid back then, and they're known for solid quality.
