The full reveal will presumably show us the endo-arm in glass tube accessory. Hopefully he has his laptop thing....and I hope his backpack is removable. I'm a little worried that it might not be.

So that image was on the back of the box for the power arm Terminator. Very old school way of revealing new figures in a line. I like it.

Back in the 80s/90s before the internet and social media, back of the box advertising was one of the only ways of knowing of new figures that were coming. Imagine the suprise of going in store, seeing one of these on the shelf, grab one and look at the back to see JC with motorbike was coming.

Yeah, Randy must have figured that with the kenner figures about to hit stores he would hold off on showing it on twitter beforehand, knowing that people would make the surprise discovery in shops like the old days.

Man I can't wait. Only problem is, with the amount of John Connors I want for different scenes it'll cost me a small fortune and leave me with a **** tonne of spare bikes :lol - assuming he's only being released the one way, with the bike. Major first world problem.

I'm pretty sure it's removable. I'm only concerned with that ugly abdomen joint. Why they couldn't make it underneath the rubber shirt, like they always do? It looks like the lower part of the tee is part of the diaper, so we will automatically end up with two tones of black on his shirt.

Might be to make him sit on the bike better. Not sure. Just a guess.

They got the hair right on the figure. Neca gives excellent haircuts, unlike other companies. The bike is kewl. I never had the kenner figure, but my friend had one. Neca should make one for the kenner T 800. Put a purple "T" on the gas tank.

This is excellent news!!

Back when John was first revealed I started looking for a 1/10 or 1/12 dirt bike that I could use or modify but nothing was really close to the movie bike.

I will probably recreate this scene where the T-800 lifts John from his bike and places him on the Harley.

Does make one wonder if they could do the Fatboy and the T-1000's police bike without logos. If they were accurate in every other way I'd be quite happy - though obviously the quality couldn't be on par with, say*, the ERTL Fatboy.

That was one of my biggest irritations as the picture has gotten clearer over the years. That, and I think the windscreen in the truck in the drainage canal bothered Cameron just as much as it bothered me. A minor continuity error that was easily fixed. Too bad several others aren't as easily remedied (like when Arnie drops his pistol to pick up the tear gas launcher after the SWAT shootout, but has it to shatter T-1000 in the steel mill). Also, they finally covered up T-1000's junk in the arrival scene with the added bit of concrete. That was getting WAY too obvious as the picture quality improved.

Although, Arnold's dong flopping around in the arrival in T1 is still present. Now that I think about it, it goes along with all the other intentional symmetry of the two movies. The unintentional symmetry of both bad guys having clearly exposed genitalia upon arrival.

I know an ebay seller who parts out some of NECA's 2-packs and accessory packs, maybe he'll do the same with John. I won't be able to order all the figures I want up front from BBTS given the price it'd be and the customs fee's I'd incur so I figure I might be able to get some of the quantity off him - thus hopefully reducing the amount of extra bikes I end up with :lol

See, you say that(and I'm not disagreeing with you), but then BBTS has the Terminator 2 3D Arnold up for Pre-order again.

So either Randy is lying, or he has no idea what the hell he's talking about.

I'd ask on Twitter, but it seems a number of people have ALREADY asked him and he simply doesn't answer them. He generally seems to only respond to the same 5-6 individuals and answers the exact same 5-6 questions, day in and day out.

He only responds to new people on Twitter if they have breasts in their profile pic.

...well, I guess that's one idea.

Drone
01-05-2019, 02:14 PM
You were exactly right, Drone.
Yes, very happy to see the bike reveal! Although now I have the same concern as you: will I be able to get as many John Connors as I want without having to get the same number of bikes?

I think I'm wanting a total of four JC's to recreate the following scenarios:
- Galleria hallway
- Canal chase
- Cyberdyne mission
- Steel Mill showdown

I'm inclined to believe that there will eventually be a non 'Ultimate Edition' John Connor released, sans bike but with other accessories instead like the endo arm that was previously shown. If the Ultimate Edition release doesn't also include the endo arm or (at the very least) alternate hands for John, then I'll likely just buy two and hold out hope for a stand-alone release later on.

a-dev
01-05-2019, 02:40 PM
I dunno if he'd be released by himself without the bike - that would be an ideal scenario I remember talking about back during SDCC - 2 options, buy him with the bike or buy him without.

I could see him being reissued in a 2 pack with the T-800 or maybe even a full T2 cast multi-pack.

Thanks for posting that. I like the insert where Arnold first grabs John off the bike but man, that cartoony paste job of Arnold's face onto Peter Kent for the extended "slow motion" jump into the canal was totally obvious and quite bad. I'd have rather they just left Kent alone for that one (and I always thought that he looked cool and close enough to Arnold in that scene anyway.) Now it just gives what was a legit on-camera stunt a level of phoniness that totally undermines what they pulled off in the first place IMO.

Oh well.

01-05-2019, 03:10 PM
I thought that looked OK in motion but after your post I looked at it again and paused it and, yeah, it did suddenly look very photoshopped on.

I'll do what I did with Sarah, get two. Which was facilitated merely because I managed to get an extra for cheap at Hastings when they closed. That way if I ever expand my display beyond the single shelf, that will cover me.

I would love to see them redo all four main characters in the skintone plastic and print tech. I'm honestly surprised that hasn't happened yet.

Literally laughing out loud!! :lol

But man, that freaking jump, it was literally one of the coolest stunts in the movie and it will always be tainted now. Just the way that they lowered the bike in real time but slowed down the audio in order to simulate slow-motion, even knowing the trick it still totally works! But I just can't unsee that freaking floating photoshopped head now. What the hell Cameron.

4K, home video and YouTube clips were a mistake.


If I had my way, I’d get rid of youtube, eliminate things like Netflix and seize everyone’s Blu Ray/DVD/Home entertainment systems. The only way a film should be seen is after it’s release is in theaters on the big screen during a special, limited edition engagement. The ability to rewind, fast forward, and ultimately pause to scrutinize every detail was not what was intended.

No, CGI is fine as long as it’s used sparingly as simply a tool to help tell a story.

Without CGI, the T-1000 wouldn’t be as convincing or feel as real.

Time flies. When those Toy Fair pics debuted 10 years ago, that was the most excited I’ve been for Terminator merchandise, ever.


To finally have ultimate, super articulated and detailed renditions of the Terminator, John Connor, Sarah Connor and the T-1000 is quite exciting. I’d be cool if it ends there.

01-06-2019, 09:39 AM
Agreed with all but your last sentence. I really want a Cleaved Man T-1000 and a NECA version of Pretzel Man T-1000 (although my NECA/McFarlane hybrid is pretty cool) and I'd also love a Pescadero/Chets autoparts jacket Sarah Connor. Then there's probably ways they could get me to rebuy most of the same ***t over again - skintone plastic, new headsculpts, new accessories, new articulation points.

But the other stuff you said, yeah. Even Hot Toys coming along with their stuff soon after didn't dull my excitement for NECA's line. That was a fantastic day in 2009.

DiFabio

I once thought as you did, but as I get older, I’m finding less is more.

One day I looked and I suddenly had all these versions of the same character, sometimes 10 times over. Most of which were the same exact figure with the only key difference being a head or accessory swap. It became too compulsive and an actual burden when it came time to grow out of it and sell/get rid of them. I’m happy to finally have a John Connor. Would I get grotesque, inhuman, creature variations of T-1000, sure I’d love that. But the main look of T-1000 has been done and we finally have John Connor to go with the other three key characters with a nice bike to boot.

Same for me, when I built my Terminator collections, I wasn’t close to a final home and display space and I had huge illusions of what I might do. Now I am and in that reality, I’ve cut back, I still have most, but I’ve parted with Biker T-1000 and Man or Machine T-800, trying to capture the overall essence of what I love in each film without cluttering. I feel like my collection differs from a lot of people I see online, most people seem to collect a single property or a single brand of product, my collection spans many properties and manufacturers and to do classy displays where I can really appreciate my pieces entails some minimalism.

Other discussion I see happening on twitter has been about the Fatboy and the absence of the Public Enemy logo on John's T-shirt. Apparently they did talk to Harley Davidson regarding the fatboy but they


wouldn't allow it

and also no substitute without logos is possible -


Would have to be a different cycle altogether since they own the TM on the design, body, shape etc
If we can’t do it the right way we won’t do it

And regarding the Public Enemy T-shirt


we tried to get PE on board but they wanted to get paid

The hope was seemingly that Public Enemy wouldn't require a fee and be content with -


Free advertising and promotion and the idea that it looks cool for the figure to be wearing it. 🤔


Just explaining why it’s not on there. Costs enough to make limited collector toys to begin with. We can’t pay them on top of the other costs involved in bringing these collectibles to you affordably.

With rights - camo shirt and T-shirt sculpted entirely separate so the full logo could be used

As a Guns N Roses super fanatic, the GnR tampo was the first thing that caught my eye. I immediately had to find stills from the movie to compare. Apparently on the real bike it said "XR" so I'm guessing this is just a way to skirt copyright issues.

I really hope the final product has the GnR though cause that's awesome. And I certainly hope such a small thing is small enough to escape the attention of Axl and his lawyers, cause he's known to be a tad...litigious, especially for the most trivial things.

Even though GnR was featured in T2, and even had a T2 tie in music video, Axl has sued Jim Cameron twice. Once for Tom Arnold's line in True Lies ("You aren't her parents anymore, her parents are Axl Rose and Madonna, you can't compete with that kind of bombardment.") and once for Michael Biehn's line in Aliens ("Ripley!

So to get back on topic. I’m quite happy to finally be getting John Connor after so many years.

It’s been what, 10 years since the line debuted when it was just variations of the same T-800 buck?

Time flies. When those Toy Fair pics debuted 10 years ago, that was the most excited I’ve been for Terminator merchandise, ever.


To finally have ultimate, super articulated and detailed renditions of the Terminator, John Connor, Sarah Connor and the T-1000 is quite exciting. I’d be cool if it ends there.

Ahh the memories. This reveal blew my mind back then, crazy to think it started so long ago. Still down for pretty much any character they can squeeze out and quietly hoping Randy softens toward T3 and Salvation.

One of the most amazing/surreal nights of my life was going backstage and meeting Axl at a GNR show in 2002. At the time, Buckethead was the main guitarist. I straight up asked Axl if he'd ever do action figures, and he told me that Buckethead was in negotiations with Sideshow for a 12 inch figure. Obviously it never happened though. Enterprising customizers would probably be able to make one easily though, if anyone really wanted to.

I'm enthused by these latest sentiments from Randy. He mentioned in a video interview at SDCC that the movies are not being forgotten. Lets see what happens. There's still potential in T1 and T2 which is what NECA seems to be all about, hopefully they have the same things in mind that I do - the likes of Cleaved Man T-1000, Pretzel Man T-1000, Pescadero Sarah Connor, Ultimate Steel Mill T-800, T1 eye surgery T-800 and the like. If they need to they can throw in some rehashing, that's perfectly fine if we get some new stuff in there too.

As for T3 and Salvation toys - I think T3 would be more likely if either of those - there's a certain likelihood that I'd buy them - just not as definitive as anything from T1 and T2.

I absolutely think thats the point. They were ridiculous designs meant to appeal to kids and as a 9-10 year old when those hit I totally ate them up. I'd even take this weird bondage Terminator that was "Secret Weapon" Terminator. Though, I do think that Kenner homages of Terminator doesn't quite have the legs that the Aliens & Predator lines do. Terminator just didn't have as many really interesting figures as those other lines - but the first few were pretty rad.

Molotow isn't a paint per se. It's more of an ink. It's kind of runny, but hairs and crap shouldn't stick in it as long as they aren't already on the thing. It dries pretty quickly, but don't touch it for several days, otherwise the shine dulls.

It's always been a flimsy kind of figure - the McFarlane was more stable provided the parts weren't warped. Although McFarlane gave him stupidly long feet to aid in this.

It's a difficult scale and price-point to make a good Endoskeleton really. It could be better, I just don't know by how much and maybe that's NECA's thinking on it. Maybe it wouldn't be enough of an improvement to be worth their time and money investment.

We all have human bodies. Posing should be as basic as it gets. Unless you have rickets your legs don't look like that. And even the way he has both the left arm and the left leg forward makes the figure look totally lopsided....although it's possible one of his legs is in fact longer than the other given that's been a recurring issue with NECA's figures since they started doing this kind of hip articulation.

Tis a curious hold-up on the full reveal and solicitation.

This could mean they haven't obtained licensor's approval.

Got the Power-Arm T-800 today. Why on earth did Kenner give him a pink T-shirt anyway? That was long before the gender-norm deconstruction that's going on today. Such a bizarre choice for the time.

Likely a carry-over of popular color trends of the 80's.
I'm recalling these atrocious skateboarder toys, where pretty much all of the characters wore some shade of pink.
Assuming my childhood mind is remembering the era correctly, the electric blue / neon pink colors seen on the Asian dude here were actually a pretty popular color combination in the 80's - at least here in the U.S.

I was around 9 or 10 when those first hit, prime target age and I hated when they did stuff like that. And yet later on they gave them all more accurate movie colors as Universal Studios theme park exclusives anyway.:slap

I was able to get Motorcycle Cop and Sarah Connor in the past couple weeks at some decent prices, and got a couple Endoskeletons coming. Still need to pick up a Final Battle T2 and standard Ultimate T-1000, and I'll feel caught up. Then I gotta work on T1 stuff.

Yeah I've said before that when I was a child my favourite Batman figures were the ones that did not stray from the source material much, if at all - I wanted the most basic Animated Series Batman and was never able to find one. The toy shelves were stocked with everything but that. Of the movie Batmans, again I wanted the ones that looked most like the movie and not the made-up crap. Same went for Terminator. I tolerated the gimmicky nonsense Kenner made because it was the only stuff they seemed willing to make. But if I'd had my way I would have had NECA's movie line back then. When they appeared in 2009 they were very honestly the Terminator figures of my childhood dreams.

The Kenner tributes are an ironic kind of nostalgia. Being able to smile now at the crap that I actually only begrudgingly accepted back then :lol

I’m sure Kenner went with the pink from some sort of market research that dictated that kids are attracted to bright, colorful toys.


The prototype for the Ultimate T-800 originally had an accurate grey shirt, but they of course changed it to red pink for the final product.

There's been a big spamming problem in the recent past with sections of the forum being drowned in hundreds of threads of it requiring massive cleanup - so new members now get screened. Good boardname by the way.

I collected the Hot Toys figures but never lost my enjoyment of the all-sculpted 1:10 scale action figure. As we've reminisced in this thread the first reveal of NECA's T2 line about 10 years ago was a toy-collecting dream come true. With Hot Toys not making anything from the classics anymore it's NECA all the way and I find that no bad thing because we're getting a much bigger range than any other company has ever put out.

They've gone awfully quiet on John though :tap Supposed to be out this summer and I don't see how that can happen now since we haven't even been able to preorder him yet.

I'm surprised Hollywood didn't exploit his talents more throughout the 90's. James Cameron knew his talent though!

Not a fan of T3 or the other's, I'm not too keen on what we've seen of the 'Terminator:Dark Fate' pic's etc. I don't think the series will ever portray the terminator as an unstoppable force/killing machine like the first movie ever again :( That's what I want to see, heart's ripped out and barely surviving a T-800 attack haha.

Are you on any pic hosting sites like imgur or photobucket? I use those. But alternatively I also sometimes just upload directly to the forum using the 'Insert Image' tab in the Quick Reply box. Click on that, it brings up a window - select 'From Computer' then 'choose file' - then find your image from whatever folder you're storing it in and upload. I'm not aware if you would be barred from doing this.

I haven't posted pics of my stuff in a long time - in fact I've never posted any pics of my collection overall because I've never had it displayed properly. I've always been 'toys first worry about how to display it well later'. Later still hasn't come :slap I've posted pics of individual figures or groupings of figures in the various Hot Toys threads over the years though (no idea of page numbers). Probably the most notable thing I did, which I gave its own thread, was this http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/aliens-and-robots-action-figures/120395-t2-pescadero-scene-recreation-featuring-ht-dx10.html?highlight=dx10+pescadero&highlight=dx10+pescadero

As for NECA, I've only posted pics in this thread of the occasional modded figure, only when I have something special or unique to show, again because my collection just doesn't photograph well. It's a disorganized and cluttered mess without proper shelves/cabinets.

Yeah I think most of us agree that only T1 and T2 are worthwhile. Heck even the makers of the later films seem to agree when they state that their film ignores everything but T1 and T2....and then it too ends up being crap. :slap Dark Fate will probably be no exception but I'm willing to give it a chance because of Cameron's semi-involvement and Linda Hamilton's return. If that also fails to learn any lessons from T3, Salvation and Genisys I'll consider the Terminator franchise to be formally Shane Blacked. But look, we'll always have the first two.

snoop101
05-14-2019, 10:31 PM
I'm only interested because of Arnie. Linda Hamilton does nothing for me anymore and neither does Cameron. It's hard to believe anything he says after he endorsed Genisys and now that he's gone full blown avatar. I did enjoy Alita though, so there's that. :lol

a-dev
05-14-2019, 10:57 PM
I'm still gonna give Cameron the benefit of the doubt for now. We knew he was lying his ass off in that Genisys promotion video, otherwise why wouldn't Dark Fate be following on from Genisys - but just because he'll shill for his friend Arnie doesn't mean he himself has no talent anymore. I'm not particularly excited for the Avatar sequels - he has made us wait a ridiculously long time where any hype has long since disappeared - but I actually hope he proves us spectacularly wrong and has a bunch of great films on his hands.

The reason I'm interested by Linda's return is that I had read she turned down T3 because the script/story didn't appeal to her - thus demonstrating a bit more discernment than Arnie who'll clearly sign up for anything Terminator no matter how crap it reads. I'm sure he would have done Salvation aswell except he was California governor then. But who knows, Dark Fate may end up being terrible and Linda may be terrible in it. We'll see.

To be fair, Arnie was gonna turn down T3 because he thought it was pointless and redundant without Cameron, and they had sworn to not make another one. He gave Cameron a call to talk about it and Cameron told him to stop being loyal, charge them a lot of money and make the movie. So, it's more Cameron's fault Arnie is in T3 than Arnie.

I'm not holding my breathe for Dark Fate. I was pretty excited when Cameron was involved, and Linda came back, but over time my interest has started to die down. Cameron recently stating he doesn't have much involvement at all aside from the basis of the story, getting Junkie XL to score the film instead of Brad Fiedel, no Will Wisher co-writing, Stan Winston no longer with us, no Cameron directing... etc. It's missing a lot of key components that made the originals work.

snoop101
05-15-2019, 09:24 AM
A few months ago Cameron also said that being a producer also "relinquishes him of being fully responsible" if the movie is indeed truly terrible. That alone tells me that hes not 100% confident in Dark Fate. Arnold always gives pretty solid performances especially as the T-800. He was the only redeeming factor in Genisys. Watch some of Linda Hamiltons acting in her recent sci-fi television years and tell me how excited you are for her return. :lol This movie is going to suck....bad.

a-dev
05-15-2019, 10:27 AM
Arnold agrees to perform these facepalm-worthy comedy scenes, it's probably him who insists on them in fact. But where they had valid context and were a novelty in T2 they either didn't have the context or were just flat-out repetitious and tension destroying in the later films. So I don't put much stock in Arnold as the Terminator anymore. He needed Cameron to provide restraint.

As for Linda, well, in fairness no, I haven't seen anything she has done since T2...

snoop101
05-15-2019, 01:38 PM
You think Arnold Insists on these comedy scenes? How did you come to that conclusion? I think it's to be blamed on piss poor writing. Besides, Arnold's sometimes cringeworthy scenes in Genisys were the least of its problems. And if you think Genisys was face-Palm worthy, well wait until you see what Tim Miller (director of DEADPOOL) has in store. :lol

a-dev
05-15-2019, 02:30 PM
Interviews I've seen with him over the years give me that impression - possibly the Graham Norton show. He has said he looks for the one liners in the scripts.

With Dark Fate, all I know right now is that Cameron and Miller said a lot of the right stuff in that joint interview they did that can be found on youtube. My mind is open, at least as open as it can be after the onslaught of cinematic mediocrity the franchise has endured this century. Of course my partial optimism could be undone with the very first trailer :lol

snoop101
05-15-2019, 11:17 PM
You could be right, though I personally think Arnold is the last person to blame for any of the short comings of the lackluster sequels. I guess my optimism for any new Terminator films died long ago. It's always the same, a supposed fresh take on the franchise and the start of a "new trilogy" BS we've heard a hundred times. I really hope Tim Miller and co. Prove me wrong, but I just don't see it happening. Cameron and Miller can say all the right things and hype it up all they want, but I don't see how omitting John Connor in favor of the new full blown SJW agenda is a step in the right direction. :lol

a-dev
05-16-2019, 08:01 AM
That's another thing where I'm giving benefit of the doubt for now because Cameron and Linda Hamilton were doing ''strong female characters'' ''before it was cool''. :lol They did it properly. Sarah Connor was still very much human and vulnerable in T2. So we'll see.

Also as well as having the full T1/T2 Collection with duplicates to pose from different parts of the movies I also collect unboxed NECA T1/T2 figures then kit-bash them together like changing T1 heads with T2 bodies vice versa , and also changing up the weapons. I have some real good figure pics to post! It's not easy getting certain figures here in the UK they can be really expensive! I finally got another T1 Kyle Reese and I am going to paint his jacket and sleeves dark blue plus add blood to his head like the second part of the movie.

I really wish NECA released a Pescadero Sarah Connor and a Tech Noir Sarah Connor. Either as a double Pack together or just a Tech Noir Pack with the Tech Noir T800 then do the Pescadero Sarah with the T1000 or something?

You're a ****ing genius!

For 10 years I've been complaining that NECA never provided a steel pole with either the BD T-800 or the T-1000. Somehow it didn't occur to me that a pretty good substitute has existed for the past 4 years right under my nose :lol

Another awesome idea Tech-Com, thank you. Could do with a repaint maybe but it will serve the purpose.



You might be interested in some of these old kitbashes/mods I did. These aren't new pics, I found them in my photobucket archive.


Cyberdyne Sarah Connor - Kyle Reese jacket and arms - the arms are a tiny bit long compared to normal Sarah figure but not too noticeable
https://i.imgur.com/sEDJc68.jpg


McFarlane/NECA Pretzel Man T-1000 - the original McFarlane figure was OK but I wanted to be able to have a wider leg position like in the film, so the legs are NECA Ultimate Motorcycle Cop with possibly the shoes from Ultimate Galleria T-1000 mixed in (can't remember why I had to do that but I did so there must have been a reason - height maybe - the Ultimate T-1000s were a bit short)

Haha yeah those Genysis figures are dirt cheap so 2 reasons why I bought the G-1000, one for the metal pole/spike and the other was to pop a spare T2-1000 body on it so I didn't have to buy another T2-1000 LOL!

In T2 as you'll remember Arnie hits the T-1000 vertically with the metal pole slicing him in half (kind of) So in the display cabinet I have Arnie Final Battle wielding it but once I've done the diorama for the impalement scene i'll either position a T1000 over Arnie holding the pole or holding the pole as it has already been driven through Arnie's T800's torso OR just drill a hole in the figure place the pole through him and the grated floor and have him powered down so he looks dead (Terminated lol)

Oh wow dude that is an awesome idea using the Kyle Reese coat for sarah for the Cyberdyne look! I love the axe wielding Arnie also! Great stuff!
I agree that T-1000 pretzel looks WAY better with those legs on it. Did you just basically break the figures in half then glued them together that way?
Those bullet squibs look amazing on the T1000, wish I could get hole of the Hot Toys figures but damn they are too damn expensive for me here in the UK! You won't get one over here less than £250-£350 , some are even more costly!!! I wish we could buy these types of accessories like the squibs, gun flashes , used bullet casings and shells etc. I have gun flashes I stuck onto some of my Aliens figures and they look awesome.

Here is some basic kit bashes I did swapping heads and guns etc just open them in a new tab and zoom in to check them out better. I need to buy another Detolf and do a Robocop vs Terminator scene.

No breaking, but I did need to make the plug (from the NECA motorcycle cops pelvic portion) narrower to be able to fit into the McFarlane Pretzel Man torso. I can pop it on and off at will, although there's no need to, it will always be displayed like this. It went very well and it's very solid, stands on its own better than the stock McFarlane figure.

Haha love that little trolley thing! So many ideas for display purposes and diorama's. I just got a used Kyle Reese figure today, mint condition. I decided to take the jacket off and color it that dark purple kind of color it is in the post motel part of T1. I did the same to the arms, just need to do the blood effects on his head , maybe make a little pipe bomb accessory or get another metal pole/spike from when K.R goes melee style on the endo t800 lol. Really wish NECA did a T1 Sarah Connor and Pescadero one. Would defo complete the set!

If the movie line continues in any capacity I don't think those are totally outside the realms of possibility but since we're still asking the following


Where iz John Connah? :gah:

I won't get my hopes up too much. Yes, where the **** is John Connor? NECA is pulling a Hot Toys here. ''Coming soon''...''stay tuned''..*crickets*

Randy noticed John Connor isn't in the new movie, so he's taken that as proof that no one is interested in, nor would they buy, a John Connor action figure and it has subsequently been cancelled. He said he may reconsider, but only if Terminator: Dark Fate performs well at the box office, and the figure line they have planned sells well. It will feature three figures. A newly sculpted Arnie T-800 [2 per case], Grace [4 per case] and ye olde Endeskeleton (Same sculpt, but in ALL NEW! Dark Fate packaging) [2 per case].

But this morning on twitter he hinted that John Connor is going up for pre order soon.

I believe Alice's post may be made up to screw with those waiting for John because of how lackluster the new movie looks and it would be salt in the wound to get figures from that film and never get young John.

Thanks for that. It's otherwise all too quiet about Terminator on their twitter.

Yeah it pretty much put my expectations back into the gutter. They were mildly up because of Cameron and Linda Hamilton's involvement but after the trailer it seems to be a mashup of ideas and sequences from Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genisys. I suspect this is another ''real Terminator 3'' for the scrapheap.

Haha, I just didn't get any 'feels' from it. As usual they gave away the twist of the 'bad' Terminators abilities. That skinny blonde bird is like a rehash of Salvation's Marcus Wright but is self aware. I didn't like the way she flung herself onto the back of the truck it was odd. I wanted a darker trailer with a narrator and only quick glimpses of scenes like the old trailers. And where is John Connor! The character the whole past 2 films are based around!

Seems like the younger girl has replaced John Connor. And for some reason she's got 3 protectors? Mackenzienator, Sarah Connor AND Arnie? Should be no problem for them, judging by the trailer. All I see is this new villain Terminator getting his ass kicked repeatedly.

I think she will be knocked up by her bf and Sarah and Grace will be protecting her and the unborn child because the baby will be Juan Connor. Quote ne in November when it turns out to be the case.

Hahaha 'Juan Connor' that cracked me up xD

I just wish if they got linda back they could of got Eddy furlong back , It would have been worth it too pay for a personal trainer and life coach or something to get him back into shape to make an epic comeback as the one and only John Connor!

He's too full blown, probably a horrible actor at this point too. Linda was fantastic in the first two films, but even she delivers her lines in the trailer like she doesn't give a damn. :lol my theory is that there going to kill John Connor off shortly after the events of T2. I guess since they changed the future by blowing up cyberdyne, they altered the timeline. The new "savior" is the Mexican girl.

I'm not gonna even bother watching it. After the Predator abomination I promised myself to ignore any new iteration from Alien/Predator/Terminator franchises. The rule applies also for the toys in these lines. I'll get the Resurrection figs and the Ultimate Wolf/Predalien if they ever come and that's it for me.

You're ignoring the new terrible iterations and buying product from the old terrible iterations? No offence but that sounds hypocritical.

I wouldn't use the word hypocrite in this context but there's a logical inconsistency, one which I'm wrestling with myself. I too am buying the Resurrection line despite hating that movie; I've bought AvP figures and will buy AvP:R figures despite thinking those movies are ***t.....so why am I not buying the figures from The Predator...


Hahaha 'Juan Connor' that cracked me up xD

I dunno bout that. Even if he cleaned up, the adult Edward Furlong would be as unbelievable a 'great military leader' as Nick Stahl was IMO.

Ah yeah I guess you got me there, just a shame he couldn't bulk up muscle-wise grow a beard and cut his hair to be like his future war version. That would be cool because then Dark Fate could show how he got that scar. I am just dreaming haha. It is a damn shame ol'Eddy went the way he did as he did do some good films after T2 and I saw him in a role a few years ago in the film Assault on Wallstreet. For the small role it was he was good!

Dude I agree , those are my FAVOURITE scenes in the movie! The music and everything is just intense! The way sarah knocks her drink off the table as the T-800 walks by in the club and the music kind of echos, that **** is just magic. The police station scene is just *****ing intense and brutal, shows EXACTLY what a t-800 is built for. Amazing stuff I love that ****! It is older than me I was born in '87! I thank my dad for letting me watch Arnolds movies as a kid in the early '90s. Terminator obsessed!

Oh just picked up the ponytail and military cap versions of Mcfarlanes Sarah Connor figure. I have all 3 of them now. Just wish there was a Pescadero and Tech Noir Sarah Connor figures!!!

Before calling me a hypocrite, ask yourself what is the reason you'll be buying the same figures. Despite their ****** movie origins, they still meant something. And again I wish all new releases were half tolerable as Resurrection or the concept of Wolf predator (didn't say AVPR).

The McFarlane ones are a bit dated but I still have them, hopefully intact - for Terminator action figure 'historical' purposes. I haven't displayed them since NECA came out with theirs.

This Rev9 seems a lot like the T-3000 or whatever John Connor became in Genisys.
