No, probably not. I'm still something of a completist with T1/T2 action figures. (though I draw the line at really abominable ones like Sideshow's 1:6s and Diamond Select's 1:4)

Also my plans for a NECA 1:4 Galleria T-800 require Enterbay hands and wrist joints.No worries dude.

I almost threw this thing a few times. The leg joints suck! Very loose. Going to return it for another later. Other than that, its an ok figure. Looks better with the shades on.

Thanks Snoop, nice of you to say. I'm still using the same old camera as when I joined this forum, really shows it's age compared to Jason's pics above mine. But anyway the point is just to show what the NECA 1:4 looks like as a Galleria T-800. I don't think NECA will officially release one.

Seeing them lined up I really wouldn't say no to a Semi-BD steel mill version.

Yeah with the sunglasses on the likeness is close to perfect. I really hope NECA makes a semi battle damaged 1/4 T-800, but I guess that all depends on if this one is successful first. I really don't mind the head with the sunglasses off, in certain pics he even appears to have his signature eye squint going on.

10-11-2017, 12:07 PM
His right eye is slightly more squinted than his left.

And yeah, a semi-BD Steel Mill figure would be really nice...as would a Tech Noir. The latter would be so distinctive from everything else and a real beast of a figure.

I'd buy it probably but it definitely would be my last choice as I think it's NECA's weakest effort. They must have been stuck with a particular budget because otherwise surely they would sculpted an entirely new head with the proper hair for that scene. If there's one thing NECA does better than every other company it's the hair - except on the Police Station Assault figure.

I also don't like the Ultimate figure's tiny waist and legs. The Tech Noir would have these too but that longer jacket at least disguises the little waist and helps hide the diaper thing...

Yeah, do it if you can find the parts. I'm loving my Galleria kitbash (and my stock Cyberdyne version I hasten to add).

I remember when I first thought of using a real fabric T-shirt on the figure only to then realise it has to be tucked into the pants for T2. I thought that was the idea out the window. However when I received the figure I discovered there is indeed space there to tuck it in all the way around. Then the only problem is the sleeves - unfortunately I saw no option but to cut those off, thereby ruining this T-shirt for any other usage - I just really wanted to do this.

In all my excitement I kinda forgot to lace in some negativity. Imagine that. There are some QC annoyances, probably even more with my second one than my first.

Those old cut joints in the left leg, mid-thigh and mid-calve - A) both of them weren't fitting together properly and I wasn't able to fix that without gluing them together. This doesn't bother me so much because when you can swivel the leg at the hip and turn it at the knee you don't really need those joints to be operational. Also, using those joints disrupts the sculpting of the pantleg - which brings me to B) the sculpting isn't lining up properly anyway. There's these 'ledges' at the mid-thigh joint -

371387
371388

Then my most hated (and recurring) NECA QC issue of all - one leg being longer than the other. Yep, I swear to god this must be an issue with at least one in 3 of any given figure with leg articulation. My Michelangelo had this issue aswell. I fixed him only to now have a really loose swivel of that leg.

I mostly managed to correct it on the T-800 but not without causing internal damage to the leg that may have been needless as it turned out. And all because NECA just can't seem to put out articulated figures that can stand up straight. :gah:

Now this isn't a QC issue - just weirdness:

371389
371390

Why have they got this so lopsided? You have much bigger gaps on one side meaning the articulation ends up uneven - I hate that. I like visual and functional symmetry.






371391

^^I stuffed cotton wool into the big gaps so now my figure isn't slouching to one side anymore (as it was doing rather too easily with simple handling).

I think it's like DiFabio was saying about the 7'' figures - they're taking somewhat preposed statue-like figures and giving them articulation but you still see evidence that it was originally sculpted to a particular pose. If they were sculpting from scratch you wouldn't have an oddity like the above pics where they've cut the joint in such a peculiar lopsided way.






Lastly this area is a bit of an eyesore:

Seeing them in the same shot, the small addition of the black shirt from Enterbay really helps this figure out, I think it makes the neck area look better than the stock figure, and the overall physique looks better, nice custom you have. If I had the same parts I'd be tempted to get the NECA, part of me still wants to pursue getting the original Enterbay clean figure back, I know it has flaws but I loved seeing that thing in my display, the flaws were noticable at a micro view but just taking in the full figure, it was the first time I ever felt I finally had T2 Arnold properly in my collection, better than any HT before it or any other company.

None spare. As in I never bought any extras even when there was opportunities via part-outs on ebay - I didn't envision having need of them.

We both need to keep our eyes peeled for part-outs or other options in future. I don't enjoy the fact that I had to destroy the Enterbay black T-shirt for this custom.

The joint doesn't bother me so much but, if you end up having to paint the T-shirt black, the joint, in theory, might become less visible.

As we've discussed often in these threads, the perfect T2 T-800 seems intangible. For me, overall, I'd notice and be bothered more by the over protruding jaw on the NECA than the hair/back of head on the Enterbay clean head, the right viewing angle could hide that and from the neck down was quite awesome.

Definitely the opposite for me. Have to say I don't even like the proportions anymore. Too lanky for Arnie whereas I think NECA really nails his build as well as the all-important hair.

which isn't bad at all, and actually is good, but i still disagree with your point.

Yeah, the quality of sculpting on NECA’s T2 figures is nice and detailed, but the thickness of parts bulks him, Arnold was slimmer looking in T2, I’d even say it was the start of him losing his bull, look at later rolls like Eraser.

I'm aware he was slimmer in T2 than in T1. I still take NECA's proportions over Enterbays though. NECA's sculpt gives him a nice (former) body builder's shape whereas you don't get much shape and definition at all with Enterbay other than his legs due to the tightness of the pants and that's an overly long toothpick-like shape.

What the figure needs is a paint graduation at the hairline and eyebrows. As I said in my initial impression of the figure it's very stark between hair/skin. Although I was pleasantly surprised by a subtle enough 5 o clock shadow on the stock figure - not overdone. Obviously he shouldn't look like he's growing a beard.

What a Disappointment was this Neca 1/4 Terminator 2 head sculpt :banghead ...Without the glasses, compared to the 2up prototypes, it's almost unreal how amazing those 1/4 scale sculpts are and how average this head sculpt is. Good thing with the skin at least, as I'v seen on the reviews, it's a very good skin texture compared to other previous 1/4 scale figures. Hope they will do a better job if there will be a damaged version.

As I've said before I really wish I had that Man or Machine 2 up. Love that endo-arm with the flesh remnants plus the muscle detail of the arms.

As far as the 1:4 sculpt - I'm pretty sure it's the very same sculpt...just the paint at mass production usually won't be better than the prototypes.

RazielSR
10-20-2017, 09:40 AM
It's not. If you look at the details, eybrows, eyes, etc, you will see the differences. Check the latest YouTube review posted this week and you will see it's got nothing to do with the paint. The Important details that make the 2up so good are changed, maybe it is to expensive �� ho knows.

MaulFan
10-20-2017, 11:40 AM
The 1:4 scale figure is based on the same old T2 Arnold head NECA's had all along, any differences in quality from what we've seen at conventions on 2-ups and the 1/4 scale figure would be caused in the upscaling process.

Most of NECA's modern 1/4 figures are seen in prototype form at 1/4 scale already, and if anything, shrunken down later for smaller scales.

Blowing up a 12" figure scaled head to 18" figure scale is like blowing up a small photo in the computer to double the size, there's always detail loss and distortion and being a quick cash grab, I'm sure NECA didn't put much effort in to refine any issues and said it was good enough.

a-dev

No argument from me that it's a cash grab effort...nevertheless it's one that I'm thoroughly enjoying - albeit aided by my having Enterbay parts to use with it.

Looking pretty sweet! I assume the handgun and sunglasses are still there, just not pictured. Wonder if NECA included any extra little bonus surprises with this one; they have done that before with some of their Q scale figures.

Dang this jaw and chin, even with shades this think is looking a bit off, nevertheless for the price, it's OK, I still think the best T2 likeness was in that 1st ENTERBAY T2 HD, which I hate myself for not buying another one back then so that I could have used my mini gun that came with the BD version couple of years later.

And it could probably look better too because the NECA figure's body is turned away slightly, you're not seeing the full width.

I'd absolutely love a Tech Noir figure. It doesn't feel right to have a collection of 1:4 scalers with no T1 T-800.

Got my 1/4 T-800 in today! Overall, it's an awesome figure. I thought the limited articulation would annoy me more, but for the character it's not really a big deal. Paintwork and sculpting is excellent! The detail is really well done on this one. The barrel of the minigun can even spin!

Also didn't need to really heat any joints out of the box like I usually do so that was nice. Though his left leg seems longer than his right. That's my biggest complaint.

Overall it's the excellent paintwork and sculpting that really makes the figure for me. Looks amazing.

Great quality shots man.

That damn leg issue is annoying - so many figures with this now and it can be a problem at the hip or the foot or any other joint in the legs of a figure.

Glad you're enjoying it otherwise.

I'll be honest, your work outpaces your advert boarder which feels dated. It definitely needs to be brought up to the times - use a watermark or some other denotation of your name. The boarder and bulky title takes the focus away from your art and work, it draws the audience eyes away from what you're trying to showcase. You do excellent work, don't let something take the limelight away from that.

''Will there be Preacher series 2 figures?''

answer - Unlikely.

Shock horror. So an entire license acquisition that was a bit of a waste then (and was predictably so). But we seemingly can't get John Connor from T2 even though all the required licensing is already there (by Randy's admission) and there would be ways to release him to encourage sales even if they didn't want to release him as a standalone (as demonstrated by Newt from Aliens).

I love you NECA but I don't understand your position on this.

Sarah Connor - mother and co-protector of no one

and B) they're making kid characters from various other properties, some of them really ****ing niche, so it just makes no sense to me at all why they won't go near John Connor.

Not really, you can still have the T1 T-800 figures hunt down the T2 Sarah Connor! Atleast as a character she actually got a 7" figure made of her at her most toyetic and action packed.

Poor John didn't even get represented. Boggles the mind that Newt, Burke, Kevin Mcalister, Weird Al, the Christmas story family, the Hunter Games, Valerian, and Twilight teenagers etc. all get plastic representations, but not good ole' John Connor.

The NECA Terminator line had a fantastic start with so much potential, but they really did just get lazy with all of it. What is with that T2:3D "line". They made and designed all new packaging for ONE repacked Ultimate 7" T-800 with a cardboard Rose box and a blown up 18" T-800? I just don't understand. It's not just Terminator either, there really hasn't been anything noteworthy for the past year now. Randy has been quiet for months on twitter, SDCC was underwhelming, there hasn't been any great reveals, the things they hype up as "game changers" as of late have been nothing special. It's like they peaked and that was it.

I'll eat my words if they do something interesting in the coming weeks (are we going to get a 7" Returns Catwoman, Devito Penguin and Burt Ward Robin for Christmas or what) or in February, but man, nothing is looking good right now. If Toy Fair 2018 is as disappointing as SDCC 2017 in terms of offerings, I'm not even going to be interested in buying anything from them for atleast a full year.

NECA has some of the best sculptors in the business, but it's just boring now. They finally perfected the articulation (for the most part) but now it's like "oh we can't do Beetlejuice.

Yeah, I just got old Ash from the TV show for a custom, don't really care about it, but I was blown away by the sculpt, it seriously Mezco-tier quality with much better likeness than what Mezco can achieve, then I realized the thing has double jointed elbows and doesn't even look like it, it's hidden in the sculpt, and also the soft torso with articulation inside.

First thing I thought; "if only they had a better selection recently".

I've just never thought there was any chance for T1 Sarah so I've not obsessed about getting her. I probably would if T2 John happened.


The NECA Terminator line had a fantastic start with so much potential, but they really did just get lazy with all of it.

They've stopped so painfully close to the finish line is my problem. I know I've made lists of variants they could still make but John Connor alone would bring a great sense of completion to the T2 line.

The lack of official Die Hard figures can only be because Willis is being a ***t about it. I'm convinced of this. The toy-collector demand is there.

It's likely, I've never seen Pulp Fiction so I don't know how important Willis is to the overall story, but I would imagine Diamond didn't pay big extra money to him individually for his rights.

The confusion comes in that, some movies have merchandising clauses in the contracts should someone want to pick up the license, but it gets passed over for so long people figure it's not included.

I wouldn't have thought T2 covered everyone like it does until Sideshow pumped out so much stuff, and later NECA, so odds are by the time Pulp came out, it was probably a common practice.

With Die Hard, my guess is it's viewed as too plain of a character. NECA would probably look at McClane like, if we can't sell Rambo, how could we sell this guy. I'm sure we only got Commando Arnold because most of the pieces were there from Dutch.

I think T2 was as upbeat, cheerful and colorful as this franchise could get away with. Anything further than that and you have parodies like T3 and Genisys. And then why not just go make the Genisys sequels that were planned? Everything presumptuously disregards the previous film(s) these days like as though this new one will definitely be the film that rights the ship and then nope, just more ***t.

Nope. Had plenty of orders and were even sold out in most places. But apparently they were having production problems at the plant. Not sure if it had to do with the plastic they were using or something else, but definitely production problems.

So rather than fix it, they scrapped the entire thing.

This, along with the fact that there are issues with the Ultimate 4k Edition of T2, makes me pretty damn sad.

Yeah I made it sound like I wouldn't buy anything else and that's not true. There's a number of things I would buy. But I think we've exhausted the rehashing except as companion figures to a brand new T2 John Connor - like that rosebox T-800 could easily have been.

If it's just going to be another round of T-800 - now with mid-torso joint from the 1:4 scale figure - then what's the bloody point.

If it's just going to be the T6 license, also hard to care.

I also hope so but I have my doubts. Comparing the sales of this figure to the sales of the 1990 Turtles figures on NECA's ebay store I think Randy will just go after those dollars and not bother trying to cater to the much fewer people who seem interested in 1/4 Terminators.

I'd really love a semi-battledamaged T2 and a Tech Noir T1 at least.

That's the kicker $40. It is boring but at that price point, it was a customizer dream. As you can see in this version of a "Battle Damage" version, it's not too bad when he gets a proper makeover. Still, I would like to see Neca revisit it again but I doubt we'll see at the $40 price point again.

Good question. And I further ask, if they do, will you buy it if the movie is anything less that a worthy sequel?

What I mean is, for instance when Genisys arrived, there was a wave of various Genisys endoskeleton product/statues etc based on that tweaked design, but I for one couldn't commit to buying anything, because I didn't like the movie enough, and would want to display a T1/T2 version.

Hopefully, any endoskeletons in the new movie match the T1/T2 versions, then it would fulfill all wants.

Well I never buy from a movie I hate. I did that in the past back than way too many times but I always regret it so I sold those. If the movie is bad but the design is the same like in T1-2 than I will buy it for sure but that case is different. I hope cause Cameron is involved and it is a continuation of T2 they won't change the design. Neca's old endo looks very outdated.

NECA has given up on Terminator. Such a shame too as there's so much potential left. What's going on with their Aliens line? Is it just candy colored aliens from here on out? No more movie figures?

There was one tweet where Randy mentioned they still have Terminator plans amongst their Aliens and Predators but if it isn't total silence on twitter most of what's there is about horror lines. Also with the delays they're having and the whole toys'r'us closure, **** knows what's going on.

Any ideas what can be used for neck cables on the 18 inch endoskeleton? I picked up the original version, but of course has no neck cables. I want to customize it and add some, but have no idea what to use.

Hi all - too bad NECA never produced any vehicles to go with their figures. People who want to create dioramas can only do one (T-800 in T2 with a Maisto 1:10 Fatboy)

I'm thinking of 3D printing and hand painting a Dodge Monaco car in 1:10 in order to fit a Neca Terminator Ultimate Tech-noir figure in there to recreate the car park scene. It is only economically viable to do at least a small production run otherwise it is insanely expensive to do just one.

The windows shall be printed with transparent materials with the rest in ABS and colour-matched, not printing the "highway patrol" logo on the side but instead will produce the "Police 1874" and "to care and to protect" on transparent stickers to be put onto the car. The front lights aren't 100% aligned with the 1974 version (the 3D model is 1973) but hopefully you won't notice it. It will NOT be battle damaged and you're free to do it yourself.

If anyone is interested in doing that please let me know (USD1200 for a production of 20). If you think it's too expensive please quote in comment what price you are willing to pay and I'll see what I can do. But please note the 3D printing ready model costs US$400, printing would cost US$350 and paint job (hand polishing and painting)US$900. However if you want JUST the 3D kit I can do that too.

Next two on my list are T-1000 on motorcycle (Kawasaki Police 1000) and in a Freightliner FLA which the 3D models in OBJ are ready (need to pay someone to convert into STL which is the 3D printing ready format). Considering doing Kawasaki in both 1:6 and 1:10 format too for Neca and Hot Toys.

I know that - it's just that the 3D model needs to start somewhere. It will get fixed. But it seems like making a full car in 1:10 is crazy expensive and not very many interest. Making this in 1:6 would be insane and the car itself... well only Hot Toys had made cars in this scale and it's all plastic and they ARE insanely expensive too. Not sure how feasible this would be.

And if he's desperate enough, he can get someone to make an STL format ready for 3D printing, then get this printed. Technology these days have given us that option now

Here's a sliiiightly more ambitious project than just sunglasses. I really liked how it turned out on my T-1000, so I thought it would be fun to paint up an entire endoskeleton with one of those paint pens.

Randy posted a picture of T2 Arnie with ''I'm back'' on twitter.

We probably shouldn't get our hopes up - afterall a picture of a coke bottle with the name Hawkins on it in a Predator-related post seemingly was not meant to be taken as ''we're making Hawkins'' - so Randy is probably just doing a thing with Arnie's line because he's been away from twitter for awhile.

My next project - 1:10 CB750K4 for my Terminator 1 figure

i literally don't know anything about bikes, but when i assembled my Tamiya Honda, its engine was much much wider. like twice wider, sticking way out from under the fuel tank.

i must check what it looked like in the movie, because it wasn't an exact copy of what Tamiya did.

p.s. checked. confirmed - it should be much wider than the fuel tank and the oil tank (behind the engine).

https://i.imgur.com/eB63O4U.jpg

the fuel tank also doesn't have that edge border on its down side in the movie, which is currently present on a 3D model.
the fuel tank itself is a bit of a wrong shape on the front. too round, should have some semi-flat area there, divided from main bubble with a bending line (also seen on a screenshot).
this post is intended to be help and nothing else. if it's not needed, please just ignore it.

Another scale for the DX10 head and neck to annoy me in! :yess:

I'll probably pick it up out of curiosity to see exactly how it scales with NECA. NECA is 1/10 though isn't it? Whilst this is 1/12.

How can they get away with just shrinking Hot Toys work though? Even the hands seem to be shrunken Hot Toys hands. The overall package is exactly the same except for the stand and none of the chip removal stuff. Same tiny grenades, lets not go fixing anyone else's mistakes.

A-dev may get his John Connor one day, yet. Someone asked Randy about a Terminator accessory pack, since they announced a Nightmare on Elm Street pack. He said it was a tough one, and asked for suggestions. Someone said Endo arm in tube, and he said they already had it made for other purposes. If not for an accessory pack, the only other logical figure they could pack it with is John.

Although, I wouldn't be able to not laugh if they ended up making a Dyson figure instead.

That's the first time I've seen Randy himself make reference to it since he originally posted it. That's very hopeful. I highly doubt it's Dyson but if they want to make him I hope they do by all means :lol

Given that Hawkins from Predator is an SDCC exclusive they'd likely go that route with John Connor aswell. We've already seen this year's exclusives so we wouldn't be seeing him next month unless they want to prove me completely wrong by making him part of the regular line to be sold at retail. Obviously I would favour the latter so I can get more without paying through the nose.

From Yahoo:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/she-already-back-linda-hamilton-182335893.html

Sarah Connor is back — and she’s ready to kick some ass!

On Tuesday, Linda Hamilton was spotted for the first time on set in Madrid, Spain while filming the new Terminator reboot.

In the photos, the 61-year-old looked ready to go toe-to-toe against the bad guys, as she showed off her toned arms while wearing a bulletproof vest and holding a gun in her hand.

The still unnamed film, which will also feature the film’s main star Arnold Schwarzenegger, is currently scheduled to be released on Nov. 22, 2019, four months after its initial release date in July.

James Cameron, who is producing the new movie, previously announced Hamilton would be returning in September 2017.

“As meaningful as she was to gender and action stars everywhere back then, it’s going to make a huge statement to have that seasoned warrior that she’s become return,” Cameron said at a private event celebrating the 33-year-old franchise, according to Entertainment Weekly.

He also added that it’s not unusual for “50-year-old, 60-year-old guys” to star in action movies, there “isn’t an example of that for women.”

But despite the presence of the film’s original stars, the Avatar director says the new film won’t just be about Schwarzenegger and Hamilton’s characters.

“We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story,” Cameron said of his plan to bring in the next Terminator star. It was later announced that Mackenzie Davis, 31, would be joining the film, directed by Tim Miller.

“We still fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters but we’ll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it,” Cameron added.
