Still cautiously optimistic about Dark Fate because of Miller and the cast, but the trailer didn't really give me what I was hoping for. I just want something that feels grim and gritty, this franchise has suffered trying to top T2's spectacle. So far this new film doesn't seem to have a lot of new ideas to offer but I'll accept it riffing on previous failed ideas (aged Arnold Terminator, human/robot hybrids) if it can do them better. It would be great to have another great Terminator film. If not, well it isn't going to hurt after so many misfires.

Mildly curious about the toys too I suppose. If the film is good, I'm down, partially because we're so starved by now. I want that John Connor, and I still want Neca to expand into the other films as they have with Alien and Predator. Even Salvation - as terrible as it is - had some cool Stan Winston robots.

Yeah he looks so cool in his yellow flannel shirt and khaki trousers... Worst dressed and least intimidating 'Terminator' ever! (Figure too!)

This comment made me realize: this Terminator's attire is incredibly similar to what Detective Harrigan (Predator 2) wears once he ditches the yellow shirt of the opening scene. If NECA were to make this new terminator (in human form, in this outfit), but never make Harrigan, I'd totally buy this 'worst dressed / least intimidating Terminator' for the sake of a Harrigan custom, regardless of how good or bad the movie ends up being.
So... at least the new flick... has that potentiality going for it?

I think the major mistake they keep making is not even that they're trying to top T2 - they're trying to top any actioner of the last 30 years so the end product ends up so far from the original 1984 film in tone, style and execution that it's beyond ridiculous. It's impossible to accept any of it as occurring in the same reality as T1 because it has become absurdly cartoon-like or video-gamey and lost all tension and suspense in the process.

T2 succeeds as a follow-up to T1 because it only went bigger by as much as the CGI of the time would allow. We weren't yet at the point where CGI was replacing real-life vehicle stuntwork so basically if something couldn't be done for real it wasn't done. When the T-800 needed to climb out of his moving truck and onto the T-1000's moving truck they did it in the only way that a human physically could do it - and that wasn't some silly acrobatic flip or a slow-mo jump through the air with the camera positioned to capture the look on his CGI face. Ugghh..:slap

Nowadays they can do anything and they just don't seem to have any sense of restraint.

Exactly. They can do anything with the cgi now. So due to lack of restraint, everything looks ridiculous. The action being realistic is what makes it exciting.

I feel so old. “Kids these days with their flashy computers and graphics. Back when I was younger, we didn’t have all that fancy stuff. We walked to and from school in 3ft of snow. Up hill both ways!”

That's exactly right! Totally agree!

In T2 they had a real helicopter fly under bridges and fly into the back of a van! Now days it would all be CGI just like you said. CGI is lazy and tacky , it should only be used when the real thing cannot physically be done.

Looks like the GnR bit on the bike has literally been scribbled out although I'm not fussed about that.

The figure is otherwise pretty cool, the Battle Across Time head is a nice addition we hadn't seen, articulation looks great, the backpack is removable thankfully - I was worried it wouldn't be from previous pics.

It will be mine one way or another.

Yeah like the Ripley/Newt release. Quite possible, and really annoying. A bare-bones version packed in with an unwanted re-release of a decade old figure... sigh. I'd much rather get the figure I actually want with all the accessories.

I've often defended Neca and found them unfairly criticized for choices they've made over the years, but announcing John as an SDCC exclusive after months of waiting is a baffling decision. It's a nice surprise to no-one but scalpers.

It's kinda what we thought it would be in the first place but when he was shown at last years Con there was no indication that he'd be an exclusive so that got us excited; we certainly didn't think he'd be an exclusive for the following year's con.


On the brightside, assuming he gets some sort of wider release later, it means I don't have to end up with an army of dirt bikes.

After paying scalpers for Newt, only to have her released later with everything but the framed picture, I decided not to repeat the same mistake with Hawkins. Look how that worked out. :mad:

To be fair, this figure is really for a niche audience. The average person going to a Target store is not going to buy a toy of "that kid from that movie from 30 years ago. " I can see why they made it a SDCC EX. It sucks, but I understand it. I don't think it'll sell out immediately, so those who want it should be able to get it. I think there's a lot of option for great ex toys this year, with the TMNT Shredder set, John Connor, and the Superman and Batman two pack figures, so hopefully it all cancels each other out a bit, making it easy to get a few things over the 3 day window sale. My priority is the TMNT set...then the John Connor.

The Hawkins figure didn't sell out was available for a while. I didn't get it because I don't give a **** about Hawkins unless the other characters get made. I'm sure they'll re release him if they make more characters later on.

Ok, sure, then Randy should let us dedicated fans know if there will be a wider release later. That would be a decent thing to do for the fans. If the "average person" cares so little NECA's not going to lose out by letting the cat out of the bag by telling the "niche audience". The only people that would be hurt by that information is the scalpers, because they'll know the most dedicated fans, who they're targeting will know and not be forced to pay for fear of missing out.


It sucks, but I understand it. I don't think it'll sell out immediately, ...

It doesn't matter, it's not available to purchase for anyone outside the US.


... so those who want it should be able to get it.

Only if you're in the US. Not the rest of the world.

There is no window for the rest of the world. And we cannot even "compete".


I'm not trying to argue with you btw, my anger is with NECA, but this is the fact of the matter for non-US collectors.

The worst thing is not even when you accept you'll have to pay extra, you can accept that to a degree, when you reconcile that you have something special; Or that your paying the extra to a scalper with no benefit to NECA; It's when you've paid that premium only to have it thrown in your face when it's released wide scale later anyway.

I say scalpers are of no benefit to NECA, but that's not true. Counting on scalpers to buy out your full stock is beneficial. But why is this the only way, to what? Fund the tooling? This is what collector's clubs are for, this is what Haslab's are for. I'd rather pay the extra to NECA if a figure is a difficult wide sell than to scalpers. Grr. Is it really so difficult to offer worldwide shipping. Again, I'd be more accepting knowing that was what I had to pay a little extra for, at a fair price. I wouldn't mind waiting.

What bugs me is we were lulled into a false sense of security over this. Yes, we speculated that, if made, he would have to be an exclusive but then NECA presented him at SDCC 2018 (after that years exclusives had separately been revealed) with a sign saying he was coming in 2019 so I was like 'oh wow, he must be getting a wide release'.

455531

Nothing there indicated that he would be a con exclusive nor was there any comment to that effect in the usual Pixel Dan interview as I recall (also note the superior painted shirt incidentally)

Just the other day Johnny Utah asked on twitter if we could expect the 'preorder' for John Connor any time soon and Randy gave a thumbs up sign. This was clearly not what Johnny Utah (or anyone who was interested in that answer) had in mind.


But look, I have a high degree of confidence this is not the only release of this figure there will be. He is ripe for release in a 2 pack at least - even if it is just the same T-800 they've been issuing for 10 years - it's an absolute no-brainer.

Personally I wasn't particularly surprised by Hawkins not getting a wider release later on. Everything that came with that figure was essential so a rerelease would have had to keep everything that was in the exclusive. And I couldn't seem them doing a 2 pack of Dutch and Hawkins or something. Ripley and Newt was a natural choice, as the T-800 and John would be.

.

Either the bike or the extra head sculpt, maybe both. I doubt it'll get a single release. Maybe a two pack version with Arnold or a reissue of Sarah Connor is more likely, because if they don't think the figure with the bike merits a wide release, why would they release a single figure with less accessories? Hell, I wouldn't buy a JC figure without the bike. The OG toy came with a bike. He's got no weapons, and his whole gimmick in the film is riding that bike in some memorable scenes. Who the F wants a JC from T2 with no bike? It's like a mullet kid figure without his radio. :dunno

Also, compare the JC figure and the lack of details like the missing camo paint with the ultra detailed TMNT Shredder set. You can tell NECA didn't put the same effort on the Terminator line.

Depending on the nature of the re-release, I think the bike will be included, but everything else will be exclusive to this edition. I can see him being released as part of a second retro wave - mirroring the old Kenner version - as he was teased on the back of the last wave. The limited paint applications even match.

If he pops up in a 2-pack... I'm struggling to think of an Arnie variant I could possibly want after so many have come and gone. Sarah in white would be a nice surprise. I no longer anticipate any nice surprises though.

05-30-2019, 06:06 AM
I thought Hawkins last year was a SDCC exclusive because of the Shane Black rights they had to get, I thought it was akin to the TMNT sets (at the time) where they could only release him as an exclusive, I was wondering the same about this. Randy had said a few times that figures of kids wouldn't sell, so it makes sense to me that it's an exclusive, especially with the bike. Maybe they'll do a John and T-800 2 pack or something in the future for retail.

You're right. Sigh. Plain green shirt it is.



Pros

-Finally, a figure of child John Connor to finish the main cast of T2
-comes with his dirtbike
-nicely articulated with well-hidden joints
-Battle Across Time head wouldn't have been the first thing I'd think of as an alternate head but nice to get
-the other accessories that are there are nice
-backpack is removable


Cons

-suddenly announced as a ****ing SDCC exclusive after most of us becoming convinced it was getting wide release
-may or may not see future rerelease in some form, who ****ing knows.
-no Public Enemies logo (but we already knew this would be the case)
-now seemingly no camo pattern on the shirt despite it being on the prototype
-no alternate hands such as thumbs up or high five
-a smirking head and/or sweaty-haired Steel Mill head would have been my first choices as alternate heads

I estimate around 5 more figures that I might still be interested in the near future from Neca, depending on how they'll turn out and then I'm out. Let this **** play by his own stupid rules.

It's called Terminator 2-3D:Battle Across Time. It's amazing. I've probably seen it nearly 50 times at the one here in Orlando. It is and probably will always be my favorite show/attraction, I was sad to see it go. Cool to see that NECA included that head as an accessory.

The people complaining about the price have no idea how the toy business works. This is a niche figure set with a limited run.

I'd happily pay them their asking price plus shipping. Trouble is they won't let me order the damn thing - they've made the determination to exclude their international fans. Same story as with that damn Hasbro Sailbarge. Although in this case there's no ****ing way I'm missing out. Hasbro can go **** themselves. They lost a 25 year collector. NECA have annoyed me with this but at least John Connor won't cost me 2 grand on the aftermarket if that's where I have to buy him.

It's got a camo-pattern in the movie aswell. Unfortunately they've gone cheap on us with that aspect.

It's a live show and a 3D film. You go into a Skynet exhibition or something, and Sarah Connor, JC, and the T 800 show up in person. I think the T 800 shoots the T 1000 and they jump in the time machine and the show becomes a 3D movie.

I know they didn't release a lot and sold out fast, but did you see earlier this year Hasbro offered the Sail Barge internationally?

Last year it was 2 items per person (ie 2 of the same thing or 1 of 2 different items), but there's nothing to stop anyone from getting back in line and doing it over. Same deal at Mezco. Hasbro was the only one really doing anything, they're also the only one who actually checked your badge against your ID. I was borrowing someone's so I couldn't get anything from Hasbro last year.

So, I didn't have a chance to even try ordering John today, but I looked at the site and see he's listed at $50. I'm already downsizing my NECA Terminators and I just can't bring myself to spend that much, even though he's very nice, I saw a picture earlier showing he's about same size as the old Kenner, so I'm just gonna stick with that unless a cheaper release, maybe without the bike, comes later. I know a good chunk of the cost is the bike, but I don't care about that, just want John really and I can't justify $50 for him.

Call me a sucker (I know NECA) but I'm not taking any chances with that. We've waited damn near 10 years for a John to compliment our T2 collections and risking missing that over woulds or coulds is regrettable.

What happens when this fig DOESN'T see the light of day again? You'd be in a boat wishing you had at least picked one up.

So, I didn't have a chance to even try ordering John today, but I looked at the site and see he's listed at $50. I'm already downsizing my NECA Terminators and I just can't bring myself to spend that much, even though he's very nice, I saw a picture earlier showing he's about same size as the old Kenner, so I'm just gonna stick with that unless a cheaper release, maybe without the bike, comes later. I know a good chunk of the cost is the bike, but I don't care about that, just want John really and I can't justify $50 for him.

$50 plus shipping, so $60 +.

I agree 100%. But as a few others have said a lot went into this figure, no reusable parts (other than the endo arm as far as I'm aware) so I'm sure NECA will want to take full advantage of that and make more money on him down the line if they can. If they do release him again I can't imagine he'd come with his bike though. If anything it will be similar to how Newt was released in a two-pack with Ripley. T-800 and JC.

For me, I'd take John and the backpack and be fine, as neat as having his computer would be, given the heavy use, i doubt I'd have him holding it on display. Even not having his backpack would be ok ultimately, but I would imagine a bare bones version would be bag and computer, no alt head, no Endo arm.

For cost reasons, I'd rather not see a 2-pack, but that's likely the avenue, make sure he sells, maybe a Connors 2 pack to get some more money from the work put into Sarah. Ideally, something like a solo release but GameStop or Target exclusive may be the avenue, GameStop would be preferable because you could order online.

He does commissions , like I asked about the T1 Sarah and he said cheapest way is to send him a sarah connor and (ripley for the legs) then it would be 100 euros for the work and materials plus shipping. It is expensive but his work is AMAZING!

I've said to him to let me know when he has made the saddlebags for the 1/10 scale HD Fatboy and he is going to make some more. I can't wait to put them on the bike.

I also asked about gun flashes and impact flashes. Might ask for some t1000 bullet squibs too.

Yeah , I messaged the seller back and forth and they live in San Diego , have a legit business and sells SDCC exclusives each year. Also said they will post me the JC they get from the NECA stand on the monday after SDCC so hopefully will have it buy the end of July.

It is a big hit but I thought ***** it , just take the hit as NECA may not release him again. I don't want to take the risk of not owning the figure.

If they release JC they'll probably just release him with a standard Galleria T-800.

Well,there're nothing worth buying after T2. I'd buy a T3 T 800 and a full BD T3 T 800, but they said they won't make T3. Also, for some reason they don't make an ultimate Kyle Reese. I'd buy a T1 Sarah Connor too, but that's as unlikely as April Oneal from the 1990 film. I'm just satisfied with what we have so far. I won't buy more variations of the T 800 and the T 1000 from T2, unless is a full BD T800 from T2.

It's their fault if I don't buy more Terminator figures. Am I going to guy Dark Fate figures? Hell no.

I do agree that there will be a rerelease of SOME sort given NECA's MO. But this as a whole package is really everything any of us long term T2 collectors need to tie up the loose ends, if that makes sense? Regrettably HT hasn't done anything to expand the license, so I've continued this NECA line long since I've left 1/10 collecting for 1/6. This is the first 1/10 fig I've bought in quite a good while, and probably will be the last for another extended period.

In regards to how we will see JC again, I do think you're right about a two pack. That's sort of been how I expected we would see him in the end anyhow.

Ideally, if NECA wanted to squeeze out one more little nugget from the long term folks, give us a Pescadero escape two pack with John and Sarah. You have Sarah being repainted in white with a few pieces of new tooling (like lower legs and feet).



All that being said, and I'm probably going to regret doing so, I am surprised to NECA's commitment to consistency with the line's paint apps. The ultimate releases and T2:3D editions were the perfect opportunity for them to reinvent the line with their flesh tone plastic and use printing tech, yet they didn't. I don't know if that sadly just has to do with the cost margins being weaker for the Terminator or if NECA is just good to keep the consistent style, but...

I think that's the only way a lot of us get drawn back in after John Conner, if they relaunch the line with new sculpts and the modern flesh tones.

DiFabio
06-09-2019, 09:07 AM
They got the most they could have out of that original clam shells bubble line.

As far as I'm concerned, before this John, they hadn't made a "new" Terminator figure since the ultimate Sarah Connor. Everything else has been sourced from that original line that were on the clam shells bubbles.

After John, I'm completely fine with them dropping Terminator altogether. They clearly have no passion for it anymore, not like they used to. So why keep bugging them to do more? The logic is that Terminator doesn't sell well without it being Arnold or whatever, but they don't really seem to try. Why not do two packs? An updated articulated Kyle Reese with Arnold. A John Connor with Arnold. How about stop being lazy and make a new Arnold with some double hinged elbows and knees that you can pump 20 variations out of? Just think of how many new Aliens and Predators they've made, then look at the Endoskeleton. That damn thing has been reissued a dozen times for the past 14 years since Cult Classics Series 3. 14 years. They could have done so many cool things in terms of articulation and sculpt with an all new Endo, but they just refuse to do it. They could make the quintessential robot figure in this scale, and keep reissuing that, but instead choose to sell a 2005 figure with some new color. That figure is horrible and the plastic is nearing china bootleg quality at this point. That's where they're at with Terminator.

Not to diss NECA, they've made a lot of cool things. But with Terminator, their stuff does seem second rate like they're just plodding along with no real focus. They have some of the best sculptors and artists in the business and it's just like, "what are you doing?". Think about that endo arm that comes with John. That was teased three years ago and is finally going to be in collectors hands next month. People guessed it was for John initially, only to be straight up told "not happening, doesn't sell, niche".

Like, if I'm a terminator fan and I sculpted that original Endoskeleton or the original Pescadero Arnold, surely I'd want to take a second shot at it a decade later?

a-dev
06-10-2019, 08:02 AM
Well, why keep bugging them to do more? Because of all the stuff you then go on to say basically, and what DioramaMaker said. The line still has potential to get us to buy more. Look at those customs from DikkeToys - granted the Kyle Reese variants would never be high on NECA's list but there's more T-800s and T-1000s they could do and a Pescadero Sarah Connor. Double-jointed elbow articulation, a bigger range of alternate hands etc

However, your point is probably that, yeah, they could be doing all this and they aren't, thereby demonstrating that they just don't care enough. They prefer their Predator and TMNT sales numbers. Can't argue with that.

MaulFan
06-10-2019, 08:25 AM
I'm sure as Terminator fans, NECA would love to do more, and John being an SDCC exclusive says to me they understand and respect it as the final missing piece in the T2 line and they want to throw the hardcore fans that have followed all along a bone, but they know their sales numbers don't warrant a mass release or much future effort on their part, unfortunately for us.

My guess is the Kenner retro figures may not be selling as well as hoped either and decision as to what to do with John was probably driven by that.

I do think it just doesn't occur to Randy that Terminator figures could do with different hand options just like Hot Toys and Enterbay provided. Take the T2 T-800, he is incapable of holding the shotgun upright like he does on the movie poster or in that classic slo-mo shot of him coming out of the elevator at Pescadero. The figure could really benefit from a double-elbow and a different hand to facilitate those poses that people tend to want to recreate but which end up looking kinda silly on the figure as it stands. Meanwhile the left barrell-grip hand looks stupid doing anything other than gripping the barrell of the shotgun so it'd be great if you could switch it out with a relaxed hand or a fist.

Look at John Connor, turns out the only hands he comes with are those bike-rider hands. What a missed opportunity for a thumbs up or high-five hand, really obvious John Connor-specific stuff I would have thought.

And who wouldn't want a T-800 smiling headsculpt?! Not something any company ever thinks of because alternate heads with Terminator are always battledamage - never alternate facial expressions.

This is stuff that I wonder has Randy even thought of at all to then evaluate the economy of it.

So there's certainly a tonne of ways to get me to keep buying.

06-10-2019, 11:35 AM
I'm pretty sure it's thought of, but again, it all comes down to re-use of parts to recoup costs. Yes, Aliens and Predators have seen a slew of figures, but I doubt they'd be where they are today if the early attempts to make money of past work failed. Those lines have thrived because the Kenner retro figures, the lost 12, the comic and video game and all other variants have sold as successfully as the primary figures to back up financially exploring more rare things and because of similarities they were able to give those niche figures because of how many parts could be re-used.

Terminator did benefit from this, the T2 and T1 lines had variants thanks to the ability to reuse so many pieces, otherwise we wouldn't have all the T-800 and T-1000 figures we got. The articulation and options lack because most of them were made when NECA more so made semi-articulated statues vs fully articulated figures, and at the time Terminator was huge thanks to Salvation, we got a load from NECA and Hot Toys and now Terminator has all but died down. They took a shot on Genisys Arnold because it's Arnold and still didn't have success, they gave us a few Ultimates with little work to try and keep things going, some Kenner figures, but ultimately, I think it's clear, around 2009 was the time to strike with Terminator products, and between a slew of disappointing movies and the age of the good ones, no one cares for them anymore, at least not enough general buyers to support effort out of NECA, now your'e down to the few die hards like us. Unfortunately collectors, Terminator has also had a share of pretty nice products from a number of manufacturers. The Alien and Predator franchise has had some gems, though extremely expensive, but nowhere near as many, so NECA almost has a monopoly on those franchise and they're touching on films no one ever expected so it's getting eaten up. Hot Toys did a great T2 line, and some decent T1 figures, and then there's the Enterbay figures, the Sideshow T1 PF. I think in general, Terminator merchandise demand is less than Aliens and Predator, then add to it, there's been plenty of it in comparison.

Yeah, Predator and Aliens are their bread and butter. Even the Godzilla stuff seems to sell well. I was so disappointed when the Rocky and Rambo lines ended, but at least we got some good stuff from it.

Yeah the beard does a lot for his look. He looks about 10 years younger than he did in Genisys lol. I hope we see some pretty extensive battle damage happen to him through out the film, could make for some cool figures.

Someone on ToyArk said he passed on the previous Sarah because of the likeness - wut? They nailed her T2 appearance. Too serious looking for T1 but bang-on for T2 - and a superior likeness to Hot Toys.

The T2 Sarah face was perfect, the hair on the hair down head sucks, I was looking at it in my parts bag the other day and I'm considering doing a major custom on it, at first I worried about ruining it, but I got to thinking, if I will never use it anyway, what do I have to lose.

The Rev-9 and Grace are conspicuous by their absence. I doubt they'll be made. If there's anything else it'll be a battle-damaged T-800

I don't mind the hair-down sculpt of the hair, a big mane for sure but it was pretty big at Cyberdyne and in making of interviews at the time.

I'm convinced John Connor would have sold better, especially if released concurrently with other obvious T2 figures.

Worried now. Typically when NECA produces excellent figures like this the movie then sucks.

On the plus side if they do a Grace, if nothing else it can be used to make a custom Mariette from Blade Runner 2049. Win win.

And on the topic of wanting new likenesses, I wish they'd commission Grove to do a new Ripley. And T2.

NECA has a way of killing lines sometimes by either releasing bad figures or re releasing the same figures with different accessories or repainted, and then act surprised because they didn't sell.

I bought a few issues then thought ***** it i'll just subscribe it will be fun the have an endo that size. I have like a spare set of issues 1-6 I believe, i'll have to check in my drawer, was gonna keep them as spares but might sell them on ebay.

What would you suggest I do to dull the color? as i'm new to painting etc I'm just really getting into it, learning about paints etc.

Well I guess once I have all the parts I could spray them or pay someone to spray them before I assemble it? Would look awesome when done right, a weathered battle endo!

Yes I've chatted a lot with the dikke toys guy about the saddlebags and he said he will do them, just waiting for him to shoot me a message when he has done them. I will shoot him a message about the saddle bags later to remind him. I'll also ask if he can make a slot to slide the shotgun into.

I inquired about the T1 Sarah Connor and he said send him a NECA t2 sarah connor & NECA Ripley plus 100Euros for materials and labor (Plus postage costs) I guess that's fair for a one of a kind figure, I mean who else owns a T1 sarah???

A Pescadero Sarah would be my higher priority, that one looked really great. Not that the T1 Sarah looked bad, just the face is most definitely T2.

For me it'd be

-Saddlebags
-Cleaved-man T-1000
-Pescadero Sarah Connor
-T1 eye surgery T-800
-T1 movie poster T-800
-T2 chip reset T-800

Not all at once :lol

I'd love the Kyle Reese variants too but I'd need to buy more of the stock figure. I only have 2, one of which I already harvested his coat and arms from for the T2 Cyberdyne Sarah Connor.

Be careful grabbing those KO flame effects off eBay; I hear that the quality varies wildly and some of the cheaper ones have heavy fumes coming off of them that are fairly persistent. It's such a same that Tamashii hasn't supported the effects line much in recent times.

You can use dull coat to dull the paint down, just like you can use gloss coat to make it shiny. To avoid having to do that, you should be using flat acrylic paints on hard and soft vinyl. If you are using enamel paint, over time you will find that it gets very tacky. Might seem ok at first, but then it just starts to get soft. Something in the vinyl I guess.
