The first thing that comes to my mind is the Leia/ Mary Poppins scene from Episode VIII. Man, that was disgusting. This consolidates the idea that I won't see any decent movies anytime soon from Alien/ Predator/ Terminator franchises. I refuse to watch anymore crap like this so the good memories I have will remain unaltered.

Well, ancient T-800 has been no less ridiculous to watch when you think about it.

I don't know what they're going to do in this film - there has been pictures released of an Arnie 'body double' and a kid who has seemingly been made to look like Edward Furlong's John Connor. Will that be Sarah Connor having flashbacks to T2 or actual time travel to those events like Genisys time-travelled to 1984?

I really don't care if the move is good or not, but I would buy an Old Sarah figure for sure.

It can't be that difficult to find a 1/12 black shirt, right? It doesn't even need sleeves, because of the jacket.Easy they all over ebay.

Hey Terminator fans :wave

So a while back I did a hot toys ED-209 repaint which I posted in the ED-209 forum. Now I’ve started a new project!

Recently I came across an old beat up ex-display Neca 18” Endo which I got for like 30 us bucks, though it was missing the plasma rifle. So I thought I would give it the same treatment as my ED repaint.

I know a lot of modders out there completely re-sprayed the figure to make it look chrome but I’ve decided just to do touch up with brush work only, working with the original figure paint base....mainly just coz I’m a bit toooo lazy to take it apart and re-spray it to be honest. :impatient:

Anyway here’s some WIP (you can see the original untouched leg) would still like to make those default bullet holes look better, more localised weathering with some texture and eventually make a base for it like others have done so well.

Excuse the blue shade, think it’s the blue light in corner of my room heh.

:lol I saw that and I tried to give you rep for it but had apparently repped you too recently.

Ever since photobucket went to ***t I haven't been using GIFs much - I could start using them via imgur but I've just gotten out of the habit and haven't been posting a great deal lately anyway.

The 'never say never' bit is hopeful despite the overall downer note of his post. It's hopeful because of what we now know - they made the endo-arm in the container and it was intended for a purpose other than an accessory set - now, that could just be yet another T-800 release but we know and they know it'd better suit a John Connor figure and T-800s can sell without accessories like that.

I'd like to think Randy answers questions like this so as to make us more appreciative when they eventually do make the requested character - sorta like Morgan Freeman in Batman Begins ''I just wanted you to know how hard it was''

Cameron then does a Lucas and inserts new JC over original JC in T2 so that they match lol

I saw this on my favorite Japanese website. If you place an early order for the Great Twins 1/12 Terminator figure, you get a bonus arrival figure. Could be just a static PVC figure. Not sure if it's T2 or T1 looking at hairstyle. Hopefully, this shows up cheaper elsewhere, because $185 is pretty steep.

there's more to judge by than a haircut. in T2 his back was much flatter, and he kept his feet a lot closer to each other.

DiFabio GIFed good there.

I should probably hope I'm wrong about Zombie boy and people buy the hell out of it otherwise if it tanks NECA might use that as a reason to definitely not make John Connor - because 'kid figures don't sell'.

Still, I'm creeping back around to thinking John will happen at some point based on the reminder by Randy himself about that endo-arm in container accessory, the fact they are making child figures for other lines, and his 'never say never' line.

Definitely doesn't seem like we can expect him at SDCC '18 though because he'll probably start off as an exclusive and those have already been shown.

I've dipped in and out of confidence. I dared to 'assume' John would be at SDCC '16, or was it last year's one - as a 25th anniversary release. When he didn't materialize then I felt they'd blown their best opportunity to release him and my confidence dropped. I never lost all hope though - the signs were there. Newt getting made, the fact Randy stated that they had Furlong's likeness rights and also that endo-arm in container accessory - not seen in that pic but it's probably safe to say it'll be in the box with John.

And yeah, where's DiFabio? I'm sure he'll be quite happy to have been mistaken about this one.

Thanks for the pics DiFabio. Yep, credit where its due Randy has come through on this. Hawkins from Predator aswell and next SDCC we'll probably be seeing Drake from Aliens (movie version). So many figures that have been pipe dreams since I was a child.

It's actually been a long time since I thought about what scenes I'd have if John got made. All those extra T-800s and Sarah's I bought will now be thoroughly vindicated.

I wonder will he be shortpacked though...and sorta like Lambert from Alien or Frost from Aliens where BBTS never listed those figures individually - you could only get them in a case of the full wave.

Digging the Kenner Terminators. Still not sure what the T-1000 is supposed to be. As far as I remember, there were three Kenner T-1000s. I had the exploding one and the color change one. The color change one was black and gold though. It's definitely not the bike cop one. I assume it's the exploding one, but he was just half silver and half human. The fact that the Neca one looks to be translucent is what's confusing. Maybe it's a combo if the exploding and color change, since they were both the same mold.

Yeah, I have no idea what that T-1000 is, looks tacky. Thankfully it wasn't the only Terminator reveal. I'll get that Power Arm T-800 for sure, think I'll keep him in package though, wouldn't really see a need to open him up.

A-dev, myself and others, but a-dev more vocally, have been dying for NECA to make young John to have the main 4 represented in figure form in this line, and through countless T2 announcements, we've been let down to not get him, especially after a picture was shown of the Endo arm in case like in T2, expecting it as a John accessory only to never see that or a John released, this is a long awaited payoff for years of want.

So it is a Kenner homage. Not sure I need it - some of the Terminator Kenner figures just won't be different enough. The Power-arm T-800 clearly stands out but the others not so much - with many of them it's gonna depend on what they look like in package if I buy them or not.


Just noticed John Connors hands look like they're made for riding the dirt bike. I wonder if they're making that too.

I can't see that happening but obviously I'd buy it.


I'm sure John will come with a T-800 CPU chip, Endo arm and his keyboard.

Can't wait to see the full figure, accessories and all. It'd be nice if he was indeed an Ultimate - alternate heads would be cool - a grinning face and a Steel Mill sweaty hair sculpt. Might be pushing my luck on that. Just the current head, very good though it is, doesn't work for a scene like the one when he's teaching the T-800 high-fives.


Definitely picking up John, probably not the Kenner stuff though as I still have my originals.

Happy that a-dev got his wish. :)

Thanks K1LLJOY


What’s up with a-dev & Connor? I haven’t been tracking this thread in a while.

And will DiFabio offer an actual apology on video to Randy?

Btw, when I personally thanked Randy for JC he said, “Oh, you like that? Well, we have lots more coming.”

Just watched the Pixel Dan video where it sounded like he was saying the Kenner stuff will go further than what's at the show and that it helps pay for the movie stuff. I do hope the movie stuff continues because that's really what it's all about for me. Kenner is fun but really, back in the day, they were only the substitute I had to accept in the absence of proper movie-stuff.


A-dev, myself and others, but a-dev more vocally, have been dying for NECA to make young John to have the main 4 represented in figure form in this line, and through countless T2 announcements, we've been let down to not get him, especially after a picture was shown of the Endo arm in case like in T2, expecting it as a John accessory only to never see that or a John released, this is a long awaited payoff for years of want.

Indeed. Funnily enough the current T2 line will be 10 years old when John comes out.


Oh man a-dev be doing that Irish jig once he reads that...

I can see him now with his Terminator friends...

All we need now is a Grace figure as something to go alongside M Myers. :chase

07-19-2018, 10:46 AM
Well on the one hand I really wasn't expecting to see John at this show because I thought he'd end up being an SDCC exclusive and we had already seen what those were this year. And I saw the Alien Resurrection wave of figures before I knew John was there and I was happy enough to say I'd buy those (still probably will).

Certainly though the Kenner Terminators and Golden Girls would have figured into future arguments as to why I thought John should happen. Now I'll be transferring them to T1 Sarah instead. I think I'll wait till I at least get John in hand before I start pestering them on that though :D

The mood is good. I have so much stuff that I've wanted since I was 10 years old and then thought I might get in the late 90s early 2000s with McFarlane only for them to just fade out. NECA to the rescue of that dream. It's still a slow process but I understand they can't do everything at once.

Of course, but then you got to send it back and wait . Now you could be right about the issue of first come, first serve with Target and scalpers. But Neca has way too many wonky eye paint syndrome with their human figures that I prefer to pick and choose in person. And it’s not Walmart..they just said Target which is fine because my Walmart’s suck .

However Targets, always get a good enough supply of the popular waves, it may take some time, but eventually they get a good stock

I’m not saying that Target will have deals persay, but I’m sure Neca will say “ we need to sell our product..so get it out “ so I imagine there could be deals at Target .

Especially when a promotion on a movie hits. I imagine when Black’s Predator releases we might find deals on Neca figures to promote it as Target does.

So I might wait to get the new Pred or Alien waves and by that time, Target might have full stock by then

In all the excitement I hadn't really studied the figure, bizarrely.

It looks to me like the bag is sculpted on, and the camo shirt is sculpted with the T-shirt (the upper body part anyway) - looks like it'll have an ab crunch joint.

Am I wrong?

The bag being sculpted on his back wouldn't be ideal, he didn't always have it on in the movie. If camo shirt and T-shirt are one piece then you're talking only partial custom paintjob or decals for the visible center of the T-shirt.

If they make the dirt bike that would definitely be a smart way to package him since most collectors would probably want both versions.

His hands certainly look like they were made to hold the handles on the bike. One hand shaped that way could be explained for holding the Endo arm or CPU container but not both imo.

Someone asked Randy on Twitter about Public Enemy on the shirt and the bike and he only answered the part about PE.

Maybe it's possible then. I mean Kenner gave him a bike. I would definitely hope John would be available without the bike aswell though since I want to get multiples. Time to start thinking of exactly how many. Dammit I never got quite as many Sarah's or T-1000s as I wanted for different scenes, customs etc. Think they're only available on ebay now.

It'd be interesting if John came with a bike, I don't think HT's ever made a functioning vehicle for figures, closest thing would be the power loader.

It all depends on whether or not making that bike has it's own licensing considerations, hasn't that been a big issue with the T-800 bike, having to pay Harley as well as the T2 license?

The only thing that identified the Honda XR80/100 bike used in the film was the XR logo on the back. There was no Honda logo that I could see. Other than that it just looks like a beat up, generic dirt bike. NECA could probably just omit the XR logo, reshape the tank a bit, and get around any licensing issues.

I don't normally say I told you so but I was exactly correct here :lol

That was a quote from Randy late last month when obviously he knew full well they would be debuting John at SDCC.


Just goes to show - when he downplays the likelihood of them making a certain thing hope need not be lost. It's a thing he does. He may have every intention of making the thing being asked for, it could even be ready to go waiting for an appointed time.

I was half joking actually, but there might be a few other options, it just depends on what other items you have to work with, so those other options may or may not work, like the car scene, "You don't say affirmative of some **** like that." Or Bob and Sarah pointing guns and John with the grey tape or Bob and John in the phone booth (wolfie scene). There are many options, and most involve John and Bob or the trio. A good one could be Sarah holding John in the background, while Bob points gun at T1000 split head from the hospital scene.

One for the "That's definitely you" with uncle bob Nah, I feel like I'd really need the full diorama for that
One for the "too slow" - father figure uncle bob Definitely, always been one of my favourite scenes
One for the "show them" - T 800 cuts arm scene Not strictly necessary, John had left the room

That figure used to piss me off as a kid. In some ways it was so accurate to the movie, but it always bothered me that he had a sleeveless jacket and a purple shirt. All I wanted was a sunglasses version with a shotgun, but nope, the only figure in the line that was close to that was wearing a black vest instead of a jacket and it came with a minigun. :slap

It's OK now that we actually have proper movie versions but back then yeah, it pissed me off too. Their expectations of their target audience's expectations were flawed IMO.

Unfortunately that's where the accuracy improvements end - the engine and exhaust configurations are not the same as the movie bike. Also the speedometer piece is in black when it should be chrome. So I was a tad disappointed by these things.

However the quality is certainly a bit better than the Maisto. More diecast was used giving it a more substantial feel and the chrome looks much nicer - the chrome parts of the Maisto have a toyish look to them like the Hot Toys 1:4 Endoskeleton.

^ Man, I envy you. I only encountered the ERTL ones a couple of times on eBay and they were like $100 which I thought it was too much. For those who prefer Maisto, there's this one:

I know I said the ERTL is higher quality but it's a bit of a tradeoff because it isn't as accurate to the movie bike in the physical details as the Maisto one is. And even at that before getting the ERTL I was quite happy with the quality of the Maisto - preferred it over my 1:6 Tamiya in fact :lol

So I do highly recommend the Maisto.

I don't understand why there's so much hate against T3 or T4 movies. I was cleaning up my Terminator shelf yesterday and boy, all T3 McFarlane still look amazing. They didn't even have the likeness rights at the time and Arnie looks better than most HT attempts. The proportions, the details, the paint, they're all there. The stands alone were a work of art. Both TX are really good, especially the endoskeleton. TBH I'm not sure NECA is capable to replicate that level of quality today. So at least from toyability perspective, WHY Neca is so determined to avoid the two? Whatever we considered in the past as bad movie releases, might look superb compared to anything they put out nowadays. They proved so with all major licenses.

What are the chances of them doing something from the 2019 film? It's out roughly a year, and we know T3 and salvation are off the table for now and probably ever with the way Randy seems disinterested with them.

So if they have the license for it and have access to some material behind the scenes like with Covenant and The Predator, they could be in the early days of sculpting now or in a few months to get them out in time for next year's film. Maybe.

If I had to take a guess at the most obvious choices, they'll do both Sarah, Arnie and (maybe) an endo if they have a new design or not.

a-dev
11-02-2018, 03:36 PM
I'm guessing the Genisys figures tanked, still in stock everywhere even at sale prices - well, notsomuch the grey-haired Guardian but maybe that was made in smaller quantities. So, if they have a choice in the matter, I wouldn't be surprised if NECA skips the new film. I wouldn't care really.

Just make more T1/T2. New stuff and/or reissuing older stuff every now and then.

Captain Clown
11-02-2018, 09:54 PM

I've always wondered was it sculpted to a specific moment in the film where he's firing the shotgun and maybe that's why his jaw looks pushed forward and his mouth and chin look kinda 'pouty' or tensed. That being the case, fine, although a second default expression would have been desired.

IndyMOS
11-03-2018, 01:25 PM
I’d still like for an Ultimate T1 Kyle Reese as well. I think I remember Randy saying no to another figure of him some years back, but anyone know if there’s been anymore talk about it recently?

a-dev
11-03-2018, 03:19 PM
Nothing specific. There was the PixelDan interview at comic con where they showed John Connor and the Kenner Terminators and Randy made a comment to the effect of 'we haven't forgotten about the movies' or something. That gave me some hope that there may be more beyond John Connor.

An ultimate Kyle Reese would be great - ideally it would allow you to have him in the first trench-coat he wears and also the coat he wears in the second part of the film which I think was a shorter, darker coat. You could also have sleeveless arms to display him without a coat like in the Silberman interview or the bomb-making scene at the motel. And maybe a BD headsculpt as an alternate. Accessories could be the shotgun, handgun, pipe bombs and the iron bar he strikes the T-800 with at the factory.

2029 Reese would be worthwhile but would have to be a second figure entirely.

We'd want T1 Sarah of course - I'm actually not sure how many variants she could potentially have. I've never paid a great deal of attention to how her outfit changes in the film although there was one scene where it was presumably on the floor somewhere......:naughty

There's at least one T1 T-800 variant they could do - eye surgery, wearing just the sleeveless vest and with bandages on his arm/hand.

Then there's the promotional photo shoot Arnie's they could do - the T1 movie poster in which he wears the leather jacket over bare chest, or the photo series that him with Tech Noir hair/punk vest with black leather jacket combo.

Plenty of T1 stuff there.


For T2 they could do Pescadero Sarah Connor, SWAT showdown T-800, an Ultimate Steel Mill T-800, Cleaved Man T-1000 (never seen this done by anyone), Pretzel Man T-1000, or more releases of the Galleria or Cyberdyne T-800 with the mid-torso joint that they put in the 1:4 scale figure.

New attempts at likenesses would be interesting - except T2 Sarah Connor, they really nailed that in one attempt.

Oh and hands, alternate hands for T-800s would be nice. Specific hands for holding specific weapons accurately. The current figures can't use certain guns because their palms and wrist orientation are for shotgun/m79 usage only. So how about a hand that can hold the shotgun upright like in the T2 movie poster or when he is exiting the elevator in slow-mo at Pescadero and Sarah sees him. You can't do that with the figures because the one hand they provide is for aiming the shotgun only. It would also be nice to have relaxed hands and fist hands.

There's a lot of options that don't seem to be considered for Terminator figures but which you might see on figures from other licences


Anyway, this isn't intended as a moaning post - more just to point out the potential the Terminator line still has.

I like a lot of these ideas especially adding a up and down wrist hinge and a double elbow joint so we can get better shotgun poses.

Would you want them to use the flesh colored plastic on them? I always wish they would hit them with a matte finish to take away the shiny look of them.

I wasn't thinking a wrist hinge so much as just alternate hands. It might not just be a case of wrist angle - the way palms and fingers are sculpted also effects what can be held and in what way.

Double-jointed elbows can be ugly looking but I guess since we already have single-jointed ones it wouldn't be a problem, they'd always be an option and we could just use double-jointed where needed.

As far as the flesh coloured plastic - I wouldn't mind seeing it although there's a good argument that they should keep the line consistent. On the other hand the Aliens line is no longer consistent - some figures use it, some don't - and it doesn't bother me that much.

The original T2 Arnie is a really nice piece, but I would be curious to see a new version with Neca's new tricks. I'd be in on any double dips of Kyle and Sarah too. Always wanted Sarah in white. I would expect Neca to put something out for Terminator 2019, even if it's just an Arnold. They did Predators/Prometheus/Genisys/Covenant/The Predator, all to varying success. They don't seem to pass up often.

2029 Kyle and John seem like no-brainers for Neca. It tickles the same EU glands as the expanding Alien and Predator licenses, and introduces some "future soldier" options for army builders. Not only would the pair share parts, they could be released in 2-packs with Endo-skeletons to cover costs.

Picked up T-1000 from Terminator Genisys yesterday from Toy Traders. They were on clearance for $11.95. I've seen it warming the pegs for years finally I decided to pick it up as I do not have a TG Neca figure in my MOC collection. I also didn't feel like spending $40+ on Ultimate figures or $20+ on the new Hasbro SW Vintage collection lines. From Hasbro, Neca to HT this hobby has become too expensive that its not even fun anymore. I saw the blister ALIENS Xenomorph in Clamshell on clearance for $25 (original $30). Slap the same figure in a Ultimate packaging throw in a chestburster & Egg and sell it for $40. I say get rid of the Ultimate packaging and reduce cost $10. But I know all you cool cats love your Ultimate Packaging.....bastards :wink1:

Although... there's something intriguing along the bottom edge of this image that may very well be a big J.Connor related hint. Notice the rough black lines that form the bounding boxes around each figure, and notice that this image only shows the top ~half~ of the cardback.

Along the bottom edge, we can see the top border of another one of these bounding boxes, but unlike the rows of boxes above, this unseen row contains only one box, as evidenced by the fact that it doesn't have any vertical lines other than the ones that form its left and right edges. Not only that, but it's a longer box than the ones above, so:
a bigger box = a bigger item, or, as the case may be, multiple items that comprise a deluxe set or a 2-figure set.

So, it's gotta be another clue that John Connor's coming with his Honda dirt bike, right? Its gotta be!

a-dev
11-28-2018, 02:03 AM
Hah, very clever. You could well be correct. You're definitely correct that there's something else there they've deliberately cropped.

So unless there was some silly made-up vehicle in the Kenner line that it could be? Though that seems unlikely given that the Predator Blade fighter had to be discounted everywhere.

If John does come with the bike that's great, although, as I said before I hope he gets a standalone release aswell otherwise I'm going to end up with a heck of a lot of spare bikes :lol

They actually retooled it and re-released it as part of the Terminator Salvation toys as the "Cyber Skin Generator", too.

Damn, they do look nice in those boxes. I was hoping to be underwhelmed enough to cancel these.

Note the Power-arm T-800 does come with an alternate human arm afterall. They left the watch on the wrist though, pity.

Why is that a pity? It's convenient. If his internal chronometer gets damaged, he can just look at the watch he borrowed from Major Alan Schaefer.

Because otherwise the arm could have been used for a T1 eye surgery custom without any need for modification.

Seems like the rerelease of the Ultimate T-800 is Target only. WTF, why no online release like the Ultimate Predator figures have gotten?

Yeah, it's the Cyberdyne, not the rose box one like I thought. I'm hating these Target only re-releases of older product too, just release it online again for everyone. I'm on the hunt for one right now and my Target Neca selection isn't the greatest.

My Target still doesn't have anything from NECA. It's in the middle of San Diego, not like it's in the middle of nowhere.

I was kinda banking on widescale rereleases of the Terminator Ultimates, what with being in Ireland and not being able to walk into a Target store. :gah:

Per Randy about Edward Furlong John Connor


His likeness is included w T2. Non issue. Hurdle there is general rule of thumb figures of kids don’t sell well

Well thanks for eventually releasing him regardless of this fact :duff

even if he probably will have one leg longer than the other :monkey3 (hey, I try to consider myself a man of balance, warranted praise and warranted criticism)

I like the Kenner Power Arm T-800, but I think it's lazy that the regular left arm wasn't included.

So they did include a right arm. Nice. I mean it's obviously Dutch's and there isn't any cool damage/endo reveal, but it's better than nothing.

That is a nice figure. The vintage card art, the way the pink shirt pops from the black, the extra arm, the silver robotic arm with the attachments, the extra Plasma rifle in the bubble. Good value. He looks great.

The Dutch arms aren't quite as beefy as the Man or Machine bare arms. Dutch also has a smaller head than the T-800s, like he's a slightly smaller scale. Still, passable enough being used here.

Are you going all in on the Kenner stuff or just getting select ones?

Hard to know what they'll do. They've gone low-risk with the Kenner Terminators so far compared to the Kenner Aliens. 2 Endoskeleton repaints essentially (counting the Endoglow figure aswell), and a straight up reissue of the Ultimate T-1000 in what I guess is a different kind of plastic or something. The Power-arm T-800 is the only one with new parts.

A bit upset as I ran into a T-800 Ultimate Edition at Target today and the paint was so shoddy I had to pass on it. He had what looked like extra plastic around his sunglasses and two different hair colors.

You were exactly right, Drone.


Although... there's something intriguing along the bottom edge of this image that may very well be a big J.Connor related hint. Notice the rough black lines that form the bounding boxes around each figure, and notice that this image only shows the top ~half~ of the cardback.

Along the bottom edge, we can see the top border of another one of these bounding boxes, but unlike the rows of boxes above, this unseen row contains only one box, as evidenced by the fact that it doesn't have any vertical lines other than the ones that form its left and right edges. Not only that, but it's a longer box than the ones above, so:
a bigger box = a bigger item, or, as the case may be, multiple items that comprise a deluxe set or a 2-figure set.

So, it's gotta be another clue that John Connor's coming with his Honda dirt bike, right? Its gotta be!

Plus whoever first speculated that the hands looked like they were sculpted for the handles of a bike.

That looks great! I really didn't think we'd get the bike. Now we just need a preorder. It would be sort of fun if they put him on a retro-styled card, like the original figure.
