To be fair, I've always though NECA's older, static-leg semi-statues were a bit on the lanky side

Possibly, but they've now gone too far in the other direction IMO.

Anyway, I sliced off the heel part of the expendable T-1000 boots I had left over from the pretzel man kitbash and added it to the heel of my otherwise unaltered Ult.motorcycle cop. This at least corrected the annoying leaning issue. It works just fine. Problem is having to do the same thing for every single figure that has this same issue, T-800s and Sarah Connors.

Hi, I'm thinking of getting a custom chrome painted 18 inch endo. Not v familiar with the figure myself. Is there any issues I should be aware of before plunging in?

Toyark is saying that this may be 1/4 scale.

http://news.toyark.com/2017/01/24/neca-teases-new-terminator-2-t-800-237388

A new teaser photo posted by NECA gives fans a look at an upcoming Terminator 2: Judgement Day T-800 Figure. The figure showcases a clean looking version of The Terminator, as seen on the attack on Cyberdyne Systems in the movie. The level of detail, style of articulation and wording of the tweet seems to hint that this is a 1/4 Scale T-800. That info is unconfirmed at this point, but it’s a pretty good bet.

The figure is listed for a Spring 2017 release. We’ll continue to update as more details are revealed. Click the banner image for the full size photo.

Yeah it's a quarter scale. The sunglasses and ab crunch are the dead give away.

Guess the Steel Mill version they had in their banner last year got scrapped, unless they just throw in the semi damaged sculpt with this one ala the 7" Ultimate since I assume the sunglasses are removable in this scale.

Back to this 1:4. I highly doubt they make the mini gun and ammo bag (way too big, intricate and costly for NECA to produce, I predict the launcher, pistol and shot gun) for this version so the Enterbay gun and bag might be of use to me. Glad I didn't sell it off like I originally intended.

Plus they went to the trouble of making that new box design for the Galleria T-800-

318834

Why bother creating it and making a standard price point release for him if he was just a one-off? If that was the case, he would have been an Ultimate.

More stuff has to be coming in that style. I would pay $20 for a John Connor. Even without his dirt bike.

DiFabio
01-24-2017, 11:20 AM
Also we know the only reason they give the T2 Arnold figures that left leg thigh cut is to save $$$ and tooling for the Battle Damaged versions that need a damaged left knee. So I'm thinking a 1:4 semi Steel Mill is possible.

Only a matter of time before they give the 7" versions those updated features such as the ab crunch and such.


I just hope if John happens he's at retail. None of that exclusive BS. Unlike Newt's photograph and helmet, I'd actually want everything John comes with, especially if it's the endo arm. It'd also be nice to see a wave featuring Uncle Bob, T-1000 (articulated Steel Mill), Sarah connor (no hat with sunglasses, hat with no sunglasses or maybe a bloody version from the aster Mill) and an all new John Connor.

I like the way you're both thinking! There's still reasonable potential with the line, I hope Randy sees it that way.

Difabio, great idea for the Enterbay minigun and ammo bag - heck even if NECA do provide those things I'll probably switch the Enterbay equivalents onto the NECA figure since I'm not otherwise using them. Oh and the M79 too.

I just can't see that happening. They never load their 1:4 scale figures with heavy duty weapons or accessories like that. They didn't give Batman his steel gauntlet (instead they included a cheap three pronged grapple hook nobody uses), both Penguins never got an umbrella, etc. etc.

To date I believe their Deadpool has the most weapons and accessories. You also have to take into account the minigun fitting in their uniformed box format. It'd be almost half the size of the figure. I'd don't think it would even fit on the side disassembled.

I am just glad it has taken this long to get to a T-800 Arnie 1/4 scale. NECA has been consistently improving their 1/4 scale stuff... But the last few have been incredible. Hard to find a fault in either Donatello or Deadpool. Hope Termy continues that trend.

I'd say it's the same sculpt. The only thing giving me pause is I'm not used to seeing the lips quite so delineated from eachother. Must compare it to the 12'' Pescadero head when I get home. I think I'm just seeing the difference between a prototype and final in-hand products though.

Face seems much more detailed than 7"-

318854

If it is the same sculpt (which I am still not sold on it being so), it definitely isn't a smaller version that has been enlarged. The original sculpt would have had to have been about this large to begin with for thise details to hold up at 1/4 scale. They do the reverse.... Making 7" figures out of 18" sculpts- But you can't enlarge a 7" sculpt up to 18" and get those details.

If it is the 2009 sculpt, then we are getting it in the cleanest version we have ever had. A 1:1 of the original sculpt with no details lost in shrinkage.

Seeing them all together- Yeah it may all be the same... Something a little off between nose and upper lip, but everything else lines up.

Still- I stand by what I said about it not being an enlargement. That original sculpt had to be about that big to begin with to get those details at 18". So in that regard, it isn't like they are giving us a shoddy blown up sculpt. They are giving us the nicest, cleanest version of it possible. Something we really haven't had yet. No complaints here.

Yeah, maybe not blown up in the sense like Gentle Giant's Jumbo things, but yeah. The give away are those 5 frown lines near the brow as well as the cheeks and chin.

Looks like they took their 12" 2-up prototype base and upscaled it, then made refinements. Those lines before were much more subtle, here, it looks like they're carved into the portrait.

Here's the OG I think all heads from 2009 to Ultimate to QS are based off of.

And if the head is new, the sculpt to the jacket and legs are definitely reused (folds on the jacket, bullet hole placement on collar, chest and arms, folds in the crotch, folds on the right leg).

I've thought about this too. I don't know why they haven't incorporated this idea into the 7" version. It'd be so simple ala the Ultimate T-1000 cop version. That was my biggest gripe with the Ultimate T2 Arnold, along with the pastel skin colors, rubbery weapons and excessive reuse, there was nothing that made it Ultimate. A swappable arm and chest like what you're describing though? Would have been perfect.

Not going to happen with this QS though because the ab crunch would make it impossible. I'm actually surprised they didn't use a rubber/vinyl overlay for the shirt like they did with Keaton Batman, Reeve Superman and Ledger Joker. I love how that articulation is impemented and hidden.

So far this is a let down, an accessory mismatch and clean figure. It was ok in the Ultimate line because they're trying to get you to buy multiple figures to mix pieces, but a one time 1/4 scale, make it a set true to some scene of the movie. If what we see is all we get, this will probably flop and ruin chances for another thinking there's no market interest when in reality the interest is there but for accurate figures.

Unless the sunglasses aren't removeable and there's no alternate head it otherwise looks good for Cyberdyne, no?

I would have preferred a semi-Battle Damaged T-800 as well so I could display a quarter scale "scanning for T-1000" Arnold, but like A-dev said, this is the second best thing.

Not even going to use the shotgun or sunglasses, assuming it comes with them. Also, look on the bright side, you just know they're going to do a second QS Battle (Damaged version) regardless of sales. That thigh cut is a dead give away. All they have to do is make a semi-damaged headsculpt, a new torso and a damaged knee with a change of deco and viola, there is the Damaged Terminator. We saw a glimpse of it last year on their twitter banner, so it's definitely a thing. It's just like the smiling Penguin we saw at Toy Fair. We didn't get it right away even though it was made first, but sure enough we got it with the mayor version of Penguin. I'm sure This will be the same way.

It'll also make for an interest dichotomy.

12" sunglasses black shirt Pescadero
12" Final Battle full damage

18" Cyberdyne grey shirt gloves clean
18" Steel Mill semi damaged

I always wanted those last two in 12" form from NECA, so to get the latter in a larger format is fine by me.




EDIT:


Hell, I might use the sunglasses and a shot gun if they include it since I'll no doubt get multiples. I just remembered I have the 1/4 scale plasma rifle from the QS Endo NECA did years ago. You know what I'm thinking.

I hope they don't use the injected flesh plastic. I don't know why you guys like that, it makes the heads look cheaper and they skimp out on paint apps and details on the face.

It worked great for Gollum, but let's be honest, the technique was used for the Dutch and Rocky figures because their bodies needed to be flesh colored and that was the only cost effective way to get the skin of the head to match the arms and body.

A figure like a fully clothed Terminator doesn't need it. Period. The paint applications for the Ultimate Tech Noir and Police Shoot are superior to Dutch, John Matrix, etc. especially the eyes and lips. Injection flesh on a 1:4 figure? That would look awful.

I could have sworn you were making the opposite argument when you were posting pics of the Evil Dead Ash figures...they are injected flesh tone if I recall. Guess you were just talking about the sculpts?

But anyway I've been looking for injected flesh tone based on the Aliens Marines - Hicks, Hudson, Frost all have various ugly paint issues - flaking, scratches and general messiness. Vasquez with her injected flesh tone came out just about perfectly on the other hand.

To date I believe their Deadpool has the most weapons and accessories. You also have to take into account the minigun fitting in their uniformed box format. It'd be almost half the size of the figure. I'd don't think it would even fit on the side disassembled.

You'll have to look back at what I said. I don't remember praising the injected plastic tone method for Ash as much as I was the sculpt work and paint applications (I'm pretty sure they painted some flesh tones and wash over the plastic instead of leaving them unpainted like they usually do, but I could be wrong).

I just don't like it on most of their figures. Works on Vasquez, but that's because they actually put some effort into her eyes, mouth, etc. Something like Dutch, Rocky or even the upcoming Hicks and Hudson doesn't look right to me. They always have poorly painted dot eyes, minimal paint and purplish lips like they're frozen or edible treats or something.

I wish. I actually went back and looked to see it again and I can't find it. I thought maybe it was on my old phone, but nope, got nothing. I use up a lot of space on my PC/Mac/phone and clear everything once in a while. That was from like February of last year so it's long gone.

We all remember it. He was to the far left of the banner I think. Randy even confirmed it was 1/4 to me awhile back. There's no doubt in my mind that we'll see it pop up eventually. It was planned for 2016 then something happened.

And I think the thing that happened that pushed the 1/4 scale (and the 7" Galleria T-800) back was the delay in the release of T2 in 3D. It was supposed to be out in 2016 for the 25th, but is arriving this year instead.

They include the semi-damaged head as an extra portrait alongside the clean regular head with removable sunglasses. Looking at their recent 1/4 figures, that does seem to be the trend.

Yup, he was solicited with it and when preorders went up it was included.

Then last minute, about a month before it shipped, they edited their page and took the umbrella off the accessories/weapons list. I remember seeing my BBTS order change to reflect the new update. The damage control was the lame cut out Oswald for Mayor cardboard poster and/or download they offered to distract people.

I would have preferred a semi-Battle Damaged T-800 as well so I could display a quarter scale "scanning for T-1000" Arnold, but like A-dev said, this is the second best thing.

Not even going to use the shotgun or sunglasses, assuming it comes with them. Also, look on the bright side, you just know they're going to do a second QS Battle (Damaged version) regardless of sales. That thigh cut is a dead give away. All they have to do is make a semi-damaged headsculpt, a new torso and a damaged knee with a change of deco and viola, there is the Damaged Terminator. We saw a glimpse of it last year on their twitter banner, so it's definitely a thing. It's just like the smiling Penguin we saw at Toy Fair. We didn't get it right away even though it was made first, but sure enough we got it with the mayor version of Penguin. I'm sure This will be the same way

Funny, I never thought of that thigh cut joint in this way. It always seemed weird to me that they had both it and another cut joint on the same leg down at the calve and yet nothing on the other leg except for very minimal movement of the foot. But you're absolutely right as to the reason it's there.

I don't think it should be taken as a clue that the 1:4 scale Steel Mill figure is definitely coming though, not if they're simply using larger scale copies of the parts they used on the 1:10 Ultimate figure. It would however enable them to make the same cost-saving if they do make the Steel Mill figure.



EDIT:


Hell, I might use the sunglasses and a shot gun if they include it since I'll no doubt get multiples. I just remembered I have the 1/4 scale plasma rifle from the QS Endo NECA did years ago. You know what I'm thinking.



318898

Multiples eh? I myself have been thinking at least 2.

I just don't see it either.

The minigun and bag might replace a second headsculpt in the set. If they released a second figure I'd be cool with that. A 1:4 scale Steel Mill figure would then be free to have 2 heads and an interchangeable arm since it would otherwise be very very light on accessories compared to this Cyberdyne one.

For so long I was doing what everyone else was doing and having him hold it down at his waist. I think it was P. that made me study the scene and realise he's actually holding it at chest level. Some of the camera angles are deceiving.

What I find annoying on the Hot Toys DX10 is that the left hand seems to be sculpted with the assumption that he holds the minigun at waist level as per the mistaken idea we all had. If you make the figure hold the gun up high you can barely get the hand to grip the handle, it barely holds on.

Ain't this the truth.

I owned the 1/4 NECA 1989 Batman for three years until figuring out you could fix the crooked torso and "unlock" the articulation in the waist and ab crunch by simply unscrewing the 4 screws in the figure's back. Once you do that, you can actually take the torso apart (naturally without cracking open anything) and you'll find the reason it was crooked and why the movement was stiff, NECA placed two rubber stoppers on each ball joint to provide friction. The reason some people got crooked torsos was because the stopper (a half globe sphere that fits over the ball joint) was applied off center, causing the crooked angle.

If you slip off the rubber caps or simply leave them off the ball joints, you get a straight torso when you put it back together AND you get two points of articulation that move freely like it was originally intended.

If you're serious, PM and before you do anything. Two screws are easy to get access to (gently pull the belt down), the other two at the top however are hidden by the upper body and might require instructions from me. You basically heat the upper chest and back so it's not rigid then turn the upper body 180 degrees (so that the armor chest abs plate is reversed onto the back, so you can lift up the armor chest flap overlay to see the top two screws that were hidden by he plastic).

DiFabio
01-25-2017, 12:46 PM
No problem.

If you only care about him looking good and not how he feels, you could do what I did and just unscrew it, take off the rubber stopper covers on the waist ball joint and ab ball joint, then snap the torso together and maybe only put back one or two screws instead of all 4 (another problem with the assembly is that they screwed all 4 in so tightly that there wasn't any give between the torso holes and the balljoints). Combined with the rubber caps, it causes way too much friction which is why people were snapping their bodies.

The only downside is that you'll have a super loose waist BUT you gain two great ball jointed articulation points out of it and a straight looking/non wonky torso. So it's loose (not in the broken sense) but it's free to move around and pose. You can get him looking tall and straight, get him crouched nicely in a punching or cape flight pose or have him do turns.


You'll see when you do it.

Another thing that kinda pisses me off is that those new 2016 batches are different from the ones you and I bought in 2013. The capes on those are longer and the proper length, the rubber caps aren't utilized and they changed the foot/boot design so that instead of having just that swivel articulation at the shoe cut, you can actually get rotation, rocker and ankle pivot. His center of gravity is much better and he doesn't take any spills. Makes me wonder if the Aliens Queen rerelease and ED-209 rerelease will be changed in production for the better.


Hopefully everything is worked out with this Arnold and he's not too rigid or difficult to make look good on display. I would have loved double jointedelbows and knees (especially for holding the minigun), but it is what it is. They have been imroving with every 1/4 figure they do, so I expect good things from this QS T-800. Sure is a far cry from this,

Selektiv would be pleased. Anyone remember him? He wanted this years ago and trolled the entire forum about it. Gave us all a very bad name for a while.

Anyway, it looks...fine. It's a big version of their Cyberdyne figure, nothing more, nothing less. I'll buy it. I'm not expecting great things from the paint. It'll be cleaner than the small scale but it won't have a great deal more subtlety - the eyes will still look cartoony and it won't look high-end.

I do wish they'd made some refinement to the mouth area because from some angles and certain lights it can look exaggerated like in this one

http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt28/a-dev/NECA%20Terminator/Quarter-Scale-T2-Terminator-NECA-006_zpspdwktbne.jpg (http://s594.photobucket.com/user/a-dev/media/NECA%20Terminator/Quarter-Scale-T2-Terminator-NECA-006_zpspdwktbne.jpg.html)

It looks like he's thrusting his jaw forward and pouting with that bottom lip. And I also have some doubt about his eyes and brow. Frontally these things seem to just miss the mark. Whether that's the sculpt or the paint, I don't know.
And yet, as with the smaller versions, from the sideview I wouldn't know who else to call it but Arnie. It's bizarre, the sideview of this sculpt couldn't really be better in my opinion.

Here's something I like with the front view:

http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt28/a-dev/NECA%20Terminator/T800NECA5_zpsizaytzsu.jpg (http://s594.photobucket.com/user/a-dev/media/NECA%20Terminator/T800NECA5_zpsizaytzsu.jpg.html)

He's got that slight sneer that Arnie can look like he has. So if they could have made the chin and lips adjustment while maintaining this it might have been ideal for the lower part of his face at least.

A final misgiving - those legs.

Honestly, it should have double jointed elbows and knees. It really is just a blown up version of the 7" guys, from sculpt to proportions to bad posture. Would it kill them to do something new that isn't something from 2009? It took 6 years to get hips, knees and ankles (poorly done btw since they reused the pose and sculpture from '09) and 8 years for an ab crunch? I dunno.


It's baby steps at this point.

319343


We all technically have this already. I'd be a little more forgiving and less turned off if he didn't look so awkwardly posed and they sculpted new glove fisted hands, putting a little work into making their Terminators like their modern figures (you know instead of reusing things from almost a decade ago). They've made so many advancements since then and it's just like they're stuck on just this sculpt for their T2 Arnold. He still has the rotated biceps to hold the shot gun from the galleria scene!

There was talk of a NECA QS Police Shootout T-800, well, by the looks of it we already know what it would be.

Their Police Shootout figure is probably the least impressive Arnie they've done IMO. Poor choice, I'm not sure I'd buy that. We know they'd just use the same sculpt again and it's not a very good one, the hair is wrong. His lower section looks too small for his body and the short jacket cannot hide the diaper pants. It'd also of course re-use the single jointed elbows of the small figure when it could really do with double-jointed elbows for the way he holds those guns in the Police Shootout scene.

The Tech Noir version I would certainly buy. That longer jacket at least hides the diaper and he doesn't look awkward wielding the smaller guns, double-jointed elbows wouldn't be strictly necessary there. And quite simply the punk look would be more distinct from the T2 figure.

Agreed. My favorites are the Tech Noir (all those heads), Pescadero, and Steel Mill/Final Battle. Police Shootout doesn't do much for me. He REALLY needs those double joints in atleast the arms.

I saw Randy's response on twitter to your suggestion/question. :lol



319367




Problem with that is, they are following a cookie cutter approach to the T-800. Every T2 Arnold has had the same base body for years. They haven't pursued any other approach that doesn't consist of a reused sculpt for the character.

It's not like they couldn't hide the double joints well either. They've proven time and time again that they can cleverly hide articulation joints within the sculpt. With Terminator, it's just lazy and penny pinching. You can tell they think that original sculpt is the bees knees and have no intention of moving forward. Probably have some weird reasoning like he should have limited movement because he's a robot. They need to retire this sculpt soon because frankly, it's getting old. They've milked it for as long as they can I think. The more you Frankenstein it, the worse it's going to look because the base was ALWAYS intended to be a sculpturesque figureine.


319368319371


We know what happens with a copy of a copy of a copy over time.


I can only imagine what an all new T2 Arnold would look like from them with the modern techniques they utilize. His posture would be straighter, he could hold his weapons in different positions, etc. etc.


Not this thing that only looks semi-natural posed one way.

They're cashing in on the 3D release, and their 1/4 line is doing well so they just figured, why not Terminator also.

Agreed. My favorites are the Tech Noir (all those heads), Pescadero, and Steel Mill/Final Battle. Police Shootout doesn't do much for me. He REALLY needs those double joints in atleast the arms.




I saw Randy's response on twitter to your suggestion/question. :lol



319367




Problem with that is, they are following a cookie cutter approach to the T-800. Every T2 Arnold has had the same base body for years. They haven't pursued any other approach that doesn't consist of a reused sculpt for the character.

It's not like they couldn't hide the double joints well either. They've proven time and time again that they can cleverly hide articulation joints within the sculpt. With Terminator, it's just lazy and penny pinching. You can tell they think that original sculpt is the bees knees and have no intention of moving forward. Probably have some weird reasoning like he should have limited movement because he's a robot. They need to retire this sculpt soon because frankly, it's getting old. They've milked it for as long as they can I think. The more you Frankenstein it, the worse it's going to look because the base was ALWAYS intended to be a sculpturesque figureine.


319368319371


We know what happens with a copy of a copy of a copy over time.


I can only imagine what an all new T2 Arnold would look like from them with the modern techniques they utilize. His posture would be straighter, he could hold his weapons in different positions, etc. etc.


Not this thing that only looks semi-natural posed one way.


Agreed but I bet you that they will make an whole new sculpt when the time comes to remake Wolf Predator and PredAlien...... As much as I love Predator I don't get why they can't give use double jointed Terminator figures and straight legs for All three T-800's.... But yet with Alien or Predator it's an no brainer to upgrade the figures.

I'd prefer the statue-like legs with no articulation than these. Not executed very well, which is a shame.

But yet with Alien or Predator it's an no brainer to upgrade the figures.

Because for some weird reason people can't get enough of the Alien and Predator creatures. It's like Hot Toys Iron Man and Stormtroopers I guess. I mean I know why colorful armored characters and creatures are popular, it's like candy, but I don't get why people want all the weird ones that are clogging up the stores. When I was younger, I did the same with the Star Wars clone troopers and regretted it. I wonder how long before these Iron Man, Alien, and Predator guys feel the same way. This Kenner thing is, well, interesting to say the least. When I was a kid, those dinky Alien and Predator lines did not seem very popular. I remember them peg warming at KB toys and Ames. They were NOT as popular as say Kenner Star Wars or Batman or Jurassic Park. I think the fact that they've done all these Aliens but not a proper Dark Knight Collection Kenner Batman homage or Power Arm Terminator shows where the brand loyalty lies despite the mentioned Kenner lines being waaaay more popular. Why they're being treated with such importance is strange. It's cynical, but I don't think this Kenner homage thing is really a homage to a great toy line as much as it is a reason to do a dozen alien and predators.

As a kid, there was only one good Alien and Predator figure and it was this one,


319392


In addition to getting a focused line with superior articulation and advancements in toy developments, I also hate how they frown upon making things from bad movies like T3 or Batman Forever but they'll jump on some lame ass AvP and Ressurecrion crap. There's something inherently sleazy and skimpy about the business decisions they make.

It's amazing. In the 90s and 2000s people complained, mocked and joked about the colorful Batman, Spider-Man and Wolverine variations. They demanded film accurate looks. Now, with plenty of Big Chap, Xenomorph Warrior and Jungle Hunter to choose from, collectors are regressing to "Albino Concept Alien", and "glow in the dark Alien" and "blue beetleborg spitter alien" and Dark horse comic Predator! Very weird.

I'd have no problem with all those if they were atleast using some of that $$$ for legitimately new Terminator stuff. But they're not. I think it's a damn shame that they'll make all new versions of Aliens and Predators but the classic Endoskeleton (which I think is scarier and more iconic of the three) still gets a crappy, warped, brittle figure that they've been reusing since the mid-2000s back when it was Cult Classics. A line that NECA would never do today and claim was "too niche" (even though niche was their thing).




But hey, atleast we're going to get more figures from that Robocop vs. Terminator game! Repainted 2000s Robocop and Pescadero T-800 with an all new, newly tooled . . . robot dog! I bet they even make the huge Endoskeleton head boss!


319398




And if/when this doesn't sell (I don't see the motorcycle cop or this 1/4 Arnold or Robocop v Terminator doing gangbusters the stores around here aren't moving any of them), one day we'll see "the Terminator license just isn't popular enough". Well yeah, how many times can you reuse the same base figure and heads and still expect people to be hyped for it? For years people have been asking for 7" smaller versions of the big 18" ones. Goes back to the Robocop, Beetlejuice, Endoskeleton and Patrick Bateman days. But to start with a 7" figure and blow it up to 18" and the only new thing is an ab crunch? That seems backwards.



Hopefully I eat crow with a John Connor or a new Endo or Kyle Reese at Toy Fair, but I doubt it.

snoop101
01-26-2017, 03:45 PM
Pretty much agree with everything you said Difabio. It's a shame NECA doesn't give Terminator the same quality/care that goes into their other licenses. I'm still grateful that we are getting this, but as you stated, how many times are we going to see the same figure recycled over and over again? It's ridiculous really. I do think we're in store for a few surprises though. The endo arm they teased a while back has got to be for John Connor.

I was just thinking about how much of a pain in the ass it's going to be to get this guy to stand up. Especially with the weird legs and the weight of the mini gun. They need to start including some sort of stand with these larger figures.

Long story short i received a defective product. I was told I was getting a replacement, and they ended up sending back the same exact damaged product to me. So I called their customer service phone number and spoke to Elizabeth. She was extremely rude and irritable towards me the entire time. I wasn't giving her a hard time or anthing, I just simply wanted to know the reasoning behind them sending me the same damaged product I had sent back. It's such a shame because I used to order from them all the time with no issues, but this experience has ruined it for me. Just a fair warning to those that order from them.

I've returned to the Ultimate T-1000 to attempt to make him taller and give him back adult male proportions (as opposed to the adolescent proportions they gave him) - I hoped to do so with minimal negative side-effects....and I may be onto something..still in progress but I'm enthused so far...a slight adjustment from the top where the legs connect and a slight adjustment at the feet might just make him as tall as the old figure without ****ing everything up...

Currently hitting a bit of an unexpected snag - I'm having a hell of a time trying to get the torso and the pelvis back together. No combination of heating some of the parts or all of the parts or none of the parts is ****ing working. I don't understand - I've dismantled this figure before. The **** is going on..

It's because that was the size/scale it was first created in before it was shrunk down to 7". It's the original, the template, the one they put all the work into.

This bigger 1/4 version is a blown up copy of that 2-up, hence it looks worse. It wasn't made with the intention of an 18" figure.

Here's my modded Ultimate T-1000 with comparisons and so on. The aim was to make him taller without making his proportions unnatural. I achieved the former and I think I achieved the latter aswell.

Anyway, when you dismantle the figure this is what you're looking at:

Then drill out the bottom of that hole like so and fill in the top with something, anything. It forces the legs to sit lower in this piece and in turn expose the maximum amount of the sculpted leg that was previously hidden up inside the 'diaper':

I also added a bunch of blue tack which I also glued in place to try to tighten things up because the figures were very ragdollish after the mod. This was reasonably successful. Lastly I took the shoes (and pegs) from some old wrecked T-1000s from 2010 (glad I didn't throw those out, the parts are coming in useful) as they add additional height compared to the stock shoes.


Oh and here's my new custom BD Steel Mill T-1000 using the handgun bullet hits from the Hot Toys T-1000. I drilled holes in the figure to enable them to fit.

I intend to make more variants such as 'Galleria' with 7 bullet holes, if they'll fit, aswell as redoing the Pescadero battle damage that NECA gave us. Their liquid metal 'squibs' suck, a very flat silver paint. The Hot Toys ones look reasonably chrome-like.

Thanks. I consider it a success overall. It does slightly make the line of the diaper a little more noticeable but personally I'll take that when it means the figure doesn't look noticeably shorter than my other T-1000 figures - that was really bugging the hell out of me.

By the way, obviously my photos here aren't meant to be cinematic. I'm aware of how very crap these figures look in my pics. It's why I don't really photograph my NECA collection apart from when I've done a custom/kitbash. They do not photograph well unless you're a skilled repainter and use the right lighting, backgrounds and a decent camera and so on. That said they genuinely don't look so crap holding them in my hands, the old 'looks better in person' chestnut.

Anyway, going back to the 1:4 scale T-800, I'm surprisingly enthused about it considering it's almost a total rehash with nothing above and beyond what I'd expect of a Cyberdyne Uncle Bob. It'll be nice to have that minigun setup at 1:4 scale (as per DiFabio's idea I'll use the Enterbay gear). I ordered two, giving myself the future option of turning one into the Galleria look assuming NECA never release one. If I do that then my current Enterbay Galleria figure will become a 1:4 scale version of NECA's Man or Machine to make use of that Endoskeleton arm. Until then I'll probably have one NECA 1:4 using the minigun and another using the M79 (the nice Enterbay M79 that is)

That packaging says ''2 alternate heads'' - which, to me, reads like ''in addition to the default head there will be 2 others''...but there's only 2 heads total in the official solicitation images.

Yeah, Cameron is a bit late with the release of the 25th Anniversary 3D version of T2. I found the blurb below from 2016 on a movie site. NECA is just branding this latest T-800 to coincide with the 3D film release.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day celebrated its 25th anniversary this summer (2016). Initially, James Cameron was hoping to celebrate the occasion around this time of year with a 3D re-release of the film. For unspecified reasons, there was a bit of a delay, but we’ll see the 3D conversion sometime next year in 2017.

Well he would have given the same answer about Newt. :dunno

Also I'm wondering about the phrasing of the question and what Randy understood from it -

''is it possible for a future John Connor ultimate figure''

Is the guy asking about Edward Furlong or adult John Connor from the prologue?

DiFabio
02-10-2017, 10:56 AM
I thought the same thing. Did he mean a future John Connor release or a future adult General John Connor.

Still think it's BS to consider John Connor "too niche" and too much of a gamble to make. I don't get that mentality, all of the things they do are risks. His character is important and he has enough accessories to make him toyetic. If they put effort into his likeness and what's included with him, I don't see why it wouldn't sell. He's just as iconic in pop culture as the T-800, T-1000 and Sarah Connor. Even Kenner back in 91' knew he was essential enough to have amongst all the Terminator variations.

There's also no reason for him not to be offered at retail. Despite the awful paint apps and quality control, that Newt and Ripley two pack is selling extremely well, atleast around here. Each of my stores have gotten atleast a dozen of those two packs and they sell out each time. They could have easily forgone that SDCC exclusive and included those accessories in the two pack, maybe pose them neutrally so Ripley and Newt wouldn't warp. The two pack is doing better than Frost and the stupid Albino Alien I see everywhere, and I doubt that's because of the ugly looking Ripley. People want Newt, that's why they demanded her, that's why they're all selling.

John Connor is more iconic than Newt (and I'd even go as far as saying more well known than Hicks, Hudson, Bishop, Frost and Vasquez). You could easily throw him into a wave or a two pack with Uncle Bob and get sales. The fact that these small 1/6 companies keep making different Connors shows there's a market for him. "But he's a kid, kids don't want figures of boys or girls". Yeah, that logic applies to Mattel and Hasbro but it shouldn't to NECA. They make collectibles for adult collectors, adult collectors love T2 and I'm sure they'd throw down 20 bucks to display a John next to their Terminator, T-1000 and Sarah Connor.

If you can make crappy looking megos of Kevin Mccalister, Clark Griswold and ****ing Weird Al at retail, you can make a John Connor action figure.

Now I'm positive we're going to see him (hopefully soon, and hopefully not as an exclusive) but this whole tug of war with Randy about the merits of a John Connor that's been going on for years is ridiculous. He's a no brainer. He should have been made years ago. Honestly? I think biggest deal with them isn't so much license and likeness rights as it is tooling and reuse. I think the reason they even pursued the Marines and Nostromo crew is because they could make one or two bodies and spread them out to a bunch of different figures with minor differences. Picture Dutch or the T2 Arnold, but with parts that can be used for different characters. You don't get that luxury with Dillon, Billy, Blain and Mac because each one is different in appearance, body type and clothing. You can hide the fact that Hicks (x2), Hudson (x2), Windrix, and Frost utilize mostly the same parts, can't with those guys. You can lazily make one Nostromo space suit and just throw on different headsculpts and paint jobs to make them a "new" character.

With John Connor, the same thing applies. He requires an all new unique sculpt and you can get one version out of him.

Thing you have to remember with NECA is their products are driven by their own interests as much as collectors, so if Aliens is loved by many and especially their sculptors, people probably fight to tackle a newt. If Terminator isn't as much a passion, they may only tackle the core characters of Terminator themselves. Let's not forget, most of NECA's Terminator line is full of heavy recycling. One set of T1 legs for 3-4 figures in the original release, with 2 sets of shared torsos, etc., and the T2 line did it even more. Ultimate Sarah is really the only Terminator figure they don't get recycle value from and I'm sure we only got her via Ultimate T-800s and 1000s, plus she comes with weapons. John Connor may be a central name to the story of the franchise, but I do believe many don't care for any portrayal of him, T2 he was a whiny teen, T3 a whiny adult, T4 no one cares for the movie, and Genisys Connor was awful. I just think John's delay or omission is tied to lack of enthusiasm to make him, sadly.

Newt may not seem a big deal, but she was involved in a number of classic lines and moments in that movie, poster art, etc., and if you like those movies it probably would seem exciting.

Newt is a greater badass than T2 JC, she survived an alien attack alone and mostly acts tough, John complains a lot and isn't too appealing. I would only want a T2 John for a sense of completion of my T2 collection, not any love for the character, for that reason I'd want Bale before Furlong.

02-10-2017, 12:11 PM
It is bizarre how seemingly opposed they are to making John. Same goes with making a new or upgraded Kyle Reese. With all of these ultimate terminator figures they have released over the last year or so, you would think that now would be the best opportunity. My guess is that it is a tooling cost issue. For some reason they just don't want to spend the money.

DiFabio
02-10-2017, 12:18 PM
All Newt did was scream and have funny lines, c'mon Maulfan. John > Newt

NECA got people excited to buy a little pint sized 8 year old girl in overalls with a baby doll head. They made an 8 year old Macaulay Culkin in a red Christmas sweater. I don't see why they couldn't muster up that same enthusiasm and excitement to make the future leader of the resistance that's a target of the Terminators in both films and has cool accessories like the little hacker computer and Cyberdyne skynet tech. Hell, you see him in the film loading guns, you could easily give him accessories that NECA refuses to give their figures or a Terminator accessory pack. A swat gas mask would be cool.

You could be right about the NECA team choosing each figure as a passion project, I've thought about that too, but then I see Randy ripping AvP, Alien Ressurection, Alien 3, etc. and other licenses they have on twitter and think "nah, it's all about the business". I mean ****, how can we even make that argument when they've done figures for Twilight and the Hunger Games? :lol I doubt dudes in their 30s and 40s had fun with those.

There was a time these guys made all new 7" figures of John McClane, Patrick Bateman, multiple Beetlejuices, multiple Hannibal Lecters, Donnie Darko, The Crow, the Reservoir Dogs, Leonidas, Raplhie and his family from a Christmas Story, Kill Bill (like 5 all new, unique figures mind you), Scream and more. I'd consider all those "niche" and obscure compared to what they do now. I mean they had a line called Cult Classics, haha, a cult classic is the definition of niche. You ask them about pretty much anything and all it is now is "can't do it", "no license", "too expensive", "no likeness", "too niche" and it really makes you wonder how they did some of those things in the first place.

The thing that gets me is how relatively no brainers in solid brand lines (their main 3) get the same response. Randy hates it when people on twitter and Facebook diss NECA for the repaints and reuses and rereleases, but penny pinching is their thing now. They just came out with a wave of Predator figures the other day that is pretty much the perfect example of what they are as a company now. They're unabashed about it too. I mean you essentially have 4 of the same exact Predators that are going to be out simultaneously and the only difference is the head (or paint job in the case of the Jungle Demon).

It comes off as a bit cheap, low-end and stingy across the line when they have arguably the best sculptors in the business. I mean you can't use some of that Alien and Predator $$$ to make an all new character for a line you've milked with rehashes?



I could see if we were asking for Miles Dyson or T1 Sarah (in pink tie dye shirt and jeans, which I do think is essential but they'll never do it), but we're not. It's John Connor.

Even if it's true that there's nothing else left to make - I'd argue that's all the more reason to go ahead and make John Connor, if indeed he's the last piece of the jigsaw.

But he's not the only thing left that they could do anyway - Cleaved Man T-1000, Pretzel Man T-1000, SWAT encounter T-800 (with teargas launcher as new accessory), Ultimate Steel Mill T-800 (with steel rod as new accessory), Pescadero/Chets Autoparts jacket Sarah Connor. And yeah they could do alternate expressions (i.e new sculpts for the T-800) - the horse smile, the 'trust me' smirk although those simply might not work at this scale, people are very iffy on the new Aliens Ripley with its attempt at a specific facial expression.

T1 could still have an eye surgery T-800, Motel attack T-800 (jacket zipped up, AR-18 with shoulder sling) let alone Sarah and Kyle Reese, both of whom could have variants.

This is all stuff they could make - the classic Terminator films are not as short on potential as they seem to think - but John Connor alone would go a long way. If I were to see him at Toyfair I'd be a very happy man indeed.

DiFabio
02-10-2017, 02:12 PM
For starters, after John I'd retire the T-800, T-1000 and Endoskeleton sculpts and make all new ones to retool and rehash variations of. That Endoskeleton needs to be remade from scratch.

I'd actually try and make definitive versions of each character and not half ass them with old parts and janky legs. No reason why the T-800, T-1000 and Kyle Reese shouldn't have double hinged elbows and knees along with a hidden ab crunch. And give the Arnies some fists to punch things with, that's important. He punches a lot in both films.

Kyle has gotten the short end of the stick imo. He got ONE preproposed figure that only holds a shot gun and can't look good doing anything else. Kyle ran, jumped and was a very action oriented character. He didn't just wield a shot gun, he had a pistol, pipe bombs (which I'd argue are more of a signature weapon for him than the shot gun), and a pipe.

Everything A-dev listed is great too. I love the grotesque T-1000 variants. That kind of thing would be right up their alley. Instead of "Ultimates", why not waves that depict a certain scene or a scene pack like the T-1000 vs. the T-800 in the steel mill or T1 Sarah Connor and the Endoskeleton.

You could also do a Kyle Reese (future soldier) which you could make one or two more regular grunts out of, General John Connor and a Franco Columbu T-800 infilitrator (just don't make him to scale, he'd be about as tall as Newt).




EDIT:


*sees Vector's post*

Ohhhh


Yeah when I think of T2, I think of the Steel Mill. Imagine last year if they actually had an anniversary Steel Mill wave for T2. Steel Mill T-800 with swappable parts, T-1000 with swappable parts. A bloodied up/wounded Sarah Connor (with T-1000 disguise parts). John Connor with his back pack and accessories.

That's not even that much of a hard-to-do demand when they have 98% of the parts for those first three figures alone.

I would be in for a John Connor

I think John's accent was a little *too* authentic when he said "Nicaragua" causing HT to shy away from yet another Hispanic main character.

I wasn't sure I was going to pick this one up, but I'm glad I did. The paintjob is pretty solid, and the quality control is good as well. I do agree that his legs seem a bit shorter than they should be, and mine does suffer from "one leg longer than the other syndrome" but overall I'm happy.

I am in the process of upgrading my Terminator display shelf to mini dioramas. I recently got an Ultimate Sarah Connor and had all the parts so I started with hers.
