They coulda painted the eyes, though!

I thought I'd read that the eyes weren't painted but I must have blocked it out and refused to believe they'd actually do that! That is ridiculous! I know the main reason behind having the sunglasses being a seperate piece is to avoid the problem on the 7" figure with the flesh coloured excess plastic but not painting the eyes behind the sunglasses is inexcusably cheap even for a lower-end 12".

Im glad they didnt drill 2 massive holes in the eye sockets in order to hold the sunnies in place.. like McFarlane did with their 12" T850

I must say... It's an excellent figure Tankman did a great job!

All customisers! great news about this figure~
Whats sweet about this figure is that Neca cast the head sculpt in 2 pieces. You can rip the hair off and you'll find an empty space there. You can even convert it into Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) if you are experienced in drilling.

DX T-800 here I come!

Just be careful with the paint on the hands....I was trying to pose the fig too much with the shotgun, and some flesh colored paint rubbed off...

I had the same issue. Funny the way the paint scratched onto the barrell of the shotgun but it won't >>>>ing scratch off :lol Oh well its not bothering me that much. Think I'll need to take a blowdryer to the hands to get the 2 handed pose.

Oh yeah, by the way, I got mine today! Incredible figure. Can't wait to start taking comparison pictures. Only problems I have, which I consider minor, are the odd tiny bit of paint where it shouldn't be, a slight bit of glue sheen by one ear, and the part of the sunglasses that go over the ear broke off on one side - easily rectifiable I expect as long as I don't have a glue mishap.

Wow!! Is RoboCop neck way too thin or what??

a-dev
07-20-2009, 04:10 PM
Things of note:

-He's bigger, as in taller and a larger size overall than Dutch.
-He's a slightly smaller size than Sideshows T2 figures, their faces are bigger.
-Predator is, as we all knew by now anyway, way too small
-I haven't yet put him in 2 handed gun holding poses as the hands are tight.
-His hair is a darker shade than that of the 7", I'd prefer if it was lighter.
-The Sideshow T-800 looks more 'toylike' than this so-called toy. The SS head and neck are terrible - the hairline is different (read:wrong), he looks more like hes got an Elvis slicked back quiff than spiked hair. It cuts in too tight at the back of his head on SS too.


Wow!! Is RoboCop neck way too thin or what??

It is. One of the many reasons people wish HT would revisit that character.

And thats after I bulked him up to a more Arnie-esque size and reduced his ridiculous polo neck T-shirt. After I did those things I was happy with it, I thought it looked fine...now not so much. The head looks brutal, the body is absurd, the clothes are awful. NECAs one owns it, and as far as I'm concerned owns the T-800 character until Hot Toys go back and do it. The sideshow PF is very nice once bulked up though, I shall give them that.

In a very Hot Toys centric forum I risk being laughed out of the place but erm...does anyone else kinda sorta think that Tankman's T-800 headsculpt (not the paint) is kinda sorta better than the Hot Toys Dutch? Or is it just because Arnie looked very different in the 2 films and therefore the likenesses may appear different.

Coorectghosting
07-21-2009, 03:11 PM
well 2 different films you can't really compare them.

but i know that you don't have to pay upwards of $100 to get a super accurate collectible.

a-dev
07-21-2009, 03:22 PM
Yeah, I figured that much, both are undeniably good likenesses for their particular films but I kinda think NECAs T2 head looks more like Arnie in T2 than Hot Toys Dutch head looks like Arnie in Predator. Obviously HT has the more professional paintjob, no visible seams and they didn't have the easy way out with a pair of sunglasses covering the eyes (which when painted badly can ruin an otherwise great sculpt). But when it comes time for HT to do their own T2 figure (which we're all sorta assuming they will) I think they'll have a hard time bettering this Tankman sculpt.

i'm inclined to agree. NECA did release T2 Arnie without sunglasses and with the minigun and the likeness was excellent from what i've seen. i didn't pick it up

It's not bad for a $30 toy, and it's actually sculpted fairly well. It looks pretty good on the shelf, but doesn't hold up during a close inspection. The sculpt on the face has a very rough texture, and the paint app on the face is very pasty....

http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg180/Karnis2/DSCN0917.jpg

On mine, the face paint wasn't completed & you can see the gray primer in the ears & on some of the wrinkles...

http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg180/Karnis2/DSCN0915.jpg
http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg180/Karnis2/DSCN0918.jpg

Overall, as I said, not a bad effort from NECA for a mass market toy, a pretty good likeness and a good sculpting job (except for the facial texture), marred by a below average paint app of the flesh areas.

a-dev
07-21-2009, 07:22 PM
I know what you're talking about with the texture, the pastiness and the primer left in the creases. Theres also the odd seam line visible but its not too bad. And on mine I noticed the paint and sculpting texture of his lower lip isn't finished and doesn't go all the way to the edge of his mouth. Again though its not particularly noticeable.

I consider these small prices to pay for the erm..small price you pay. And when the actual sculpting is this good, the likeness and hair so dead-on accurate I can forgive the flaws we have on a figure that isn't "high-end". The Sideshow figure is embarrassing next to it quite frankly and I was happy with that figure at one point. It looks like an Action Man doll now.

The T2 Neca figure reminds me more on Schwarzenegger ( Body & Face ), more authentic & closer to the film.

The dutch overall is good but the face could be better, he looks a little youthful.... something is missing.

Indeed. I'm completely happy with my 12" Pescadero - it truly embarrasses the old Sideshow one. If Hot toys don't visit the 'human' characters of T2 it won't be such a bad thing because of these figures.

Pity the battledamaged arm on the 12" is obscured in that photo though.

Thanks for the pm Shakey, the minigun figure does indeed look fantastic. Hopefully when the 7" sells like crazy they'll decide to release that as a 12" too. You're right its definitely worthy of one. I tried getting my Pescadero to hold the minigun that came with the Hot Toys T1 T-800 but ended up breaking the handle off it - makes me wonder how the cyberdyne showdown figure will actually manage it because the sculpting&articulation appears to be the same...or so I've been assuming.

The BD figure looks great too, and thats definitely a 7" we're looking at this time. Looks like they've gone for the ''long arm'' version of the battledamage - remember it appeared to change lengths from scene to scene. 2 things of minor concern though - the 12" they have on display is missing the grenade bandolier and also I don't see the 2nd head for the 7".....

No problem, mate. As I said in the PM i'd love to see the minigun version in 12" form...

And i'm sure the 12" battle damage does have the bandolier, hope so anyways. I can't see why not. It'll just be inaccuracies from the display as they aren't final, probably.

Also, you're right about the 7" not having the swappable head but i'm not worrying till I see the final packaged photos.

Thats a nice piece but you can't do anything with it and SS still gave him a generic build which is inexcusable after their 1/6th figure. The likeness would make it worthwhile but I just don't dare going down that road else I'd suddenly need to have a Predator PF, a robocop PF etc etc etc.

I believe the 7 inch will be 2 heads, but if the eye lights up on the 12", that'll only be one.

I have to respectfully disagree. I bought my 12" yesterday, and was intrigued by how light weight the figure is. So I took it apart(4 phillips-head screws under the jacket), to find out why, and I believe that with what I saw, the 12" Battle Damaged figure's head should be removeable just like the 12" PE, thus may come with the two heads.
This figure is built, just like the 6" figures, with interchangeable parts. There is a sealed off battery compartment in it's lower back(flip up the bottom of the jacket to see). I think the BD figure will have a lightbulb in or under the the clear plastic ball the head connects to, which will make the endo eye(as well as the rest of the inside of it's head) glow.

and I doubt they would bother making sarah and john connor, they just wont sell like arnie and possibly T1000.

I hope you're wrong but you're probably not. I'd love a young John figure and a sarah connor with that shotgun from the end of the film. I'd take a Pescadero escape Sarah connor too.

08-25-2009, 08:02 PM
yea i mean they WOULD be nice to have, but honestly, not essential. I know I know, they ARE pretty much main characters. But for the over all buying crowd, they are going to go for T-800 and Endo as they are the most recognizable. I would think T1000 is too.

BTW I think T2 series 2 should be shipping soon, so we should be seeing it in the next few weeks I hope!

Just been browsing the neca website, came across this:

http://www.necaonline.com/product/detail/39845

Looks like there's 6 figures in the first wave, not 5. There's a battle damaged endo also coming out to accompany the 4 Arnie's and endo! I did not know about this figure! Did anyone else? It has a futurustic mini-gun as it's accessory.

Also that picture looks to more or less confirm the battle damaged figure comes with a swappable, lesser-damaged head. No words about it in the accompanying text, mind.

Also, look closely and you'll spot the release date as 08/09, so they might be hitting soon?

What do you all make of the new battledamaged endo?

a-dev
08-31-2009, 05:25 AM
I actually knew there was another endo coming. "I have detailed files!" Not sure I saw that pic though.

Figured it would be battledamaged although we're probably just talking painted on scorch marks. Unless they fix the head and provide greater mobility in the legs though its no good, just more background or custom fodder to me. I'm endo-ed out.

The mcfarlane M79 didn't have the stock cut short or any kind of weathering so this stubby looking grenade launcher looks odd to me.

No its just that these figures represent exactly the Terminator figures I wanted when I was a child in 1991, when instead we all had to make do with the Kenner kiddy figures. Then McFarlane made some figures which were a huge step forward but still didn't quite deliver. Finally now in 2009, 18 years after the film NECA have made these amazingly sculpted, beautifully proportioned right-out-of-the-film T-800s with well concealed neck, shoulder and elbow ball-jointed articulation...breathe... loads of accessories, alternate heads, almost every possible variation from the film can be recreated perfectly - what more could we ask?

I'm buying multiples because I have plans to recreate different scenes and try different head/body combinations etc.

I think its definitely an arm swap. You can see the battle damaged chest but both his arms are intact. None of the 4 T-800s have that combination out of the box.

Yeah and the legs are NECAs. Why would he take the McFarlane torso but keep the NECA arms and legs? No I don't think theres any McFarlane parts there.

Ah. Yeah your observations of that pic have got to be right. Its beautiful, I now have to try the same custom myself although I won't go for that pose since the McFarlane one already depicts that. I'm thinking more of giving him the gun that came with the McFarlane T3 T-850 to represent the teargas launcher. Only problem is he probably didn't have the knee damage yet at that point.

And call me wierd but I'm more excited about these than any of the HT figures I currently have on order.

One of these orders due is the HT rubberskin T-600. Hectic and expensive. I really hope things slow down next year.

I really love these new Terminators! Some of my favorite figures! I like Pescearo escape the best followed by the old Mcfarlane one with the new NECA head on it! Awesome! only took 8 years to make this figure good but better late than never!

No love for the Man or Machine figure? :(

Anyway nice pic. I knew it would be too good to be true that mine would be here today. :(

I'm sorry but for me only the PESCADERO is really great!
I love mine, looks so real in person.

The eyes were destroyed on the "BATLLE DAMAGED VERSION", this is fact, hope the 12inch figure will be better ?

With the glasses he looks so fantastic but without ....... !!
Here some pictures of the 12ich Neca Pescadero and Sideshow Premium :


Sry for bad english:maul


MY PICS ARE GOOD...RIGHT?

You FREAKS, always stealing my pics...LOL

I wanted to show a comparison of the PF vs the NECA.

NECA, for the money nailed it as good or better than SS.

OK, these figures which we've all been waiting months for are now starting to hit stores. however i keep wondering where you ppl are buying or seeing your Neca T2 series 2 figs and i just wanted to make a thread JUST for ppl who are on the lookout for them in actual stores, not online. i hardly ever shop online and if i do its ebay which i dislike anyway. the only places i ever saw the first series of neca T2 figures was in FYE and later just remants of it at TRU. has anyone seen them anywhere else besides them?

anyway, if you have seen the series 2 figures or bought them in a store, please come to this thread and state WHAT STORE you bought it from and IN WHAT STATE did you find them? that would be great. so far i have only heard of ppl in California seeing these. i always wondered why CA gets these things before the rest of the country. i live in the tristate area of PA, next to NJ and NY, so if anyone sees them popping up in Jersey or PA let me know!

I think you mean the neck was too skinny. He actually has kind of a fat head imo :D The NECA one is very nice (Big fan of NECA products) but imo a good repainted Sideshow T-800 is still the way to go. I've seen both in person too.

Hi, I'm a new member here but have been reading this site for months. I bought 12" Pescadero last week and he is impressive, worth the money. However the only problem I find is the right shoulder that seems to be quite loose. I've seen many video reviews of this one and don't find anyone having this problem. So i suggest you to check him carefully (if the store allows you to unbox and check the QC of him, then do it).

10-01-2009, 09:41 PM
I've been keeping my 12" in the same pose for much of the time, changing it only once since I got it, so as to avoid loosening the joints too much. Instead I'm trying different poses with the 7" ones, although even that may come to an end if I buy enough of these buggers.

I hope these are a big success for NECA, because I want more.

Thank you very much for your suggestion. My 12" Pescadero seems to have a loose right shoulder joint right out of the box. It's because the hole to attach right arm is a little too wide.

Perhaps you could make that hole smaller, wedge something black in it....what a sentence..or maybe use glue to make the joint tighter - poor some glue into the socket, making sure not to get any on visible parts of the figure, and while your pouring the glue in keep moving the arm for a while so it doesn't permanently lock in one position.

I put my Cyberdyne's right arm in boiling water first, then slid the trigger of the minigun inside...as i was doing this it came loose from the actual gun, but I think it was meant to, as it slotted right back in after the fact. The whole figure looks fantastic on top of my tv.

Nice little vid and great poses. Your T-800 endo looks like the cinemaquette pose, no? And your 700 looks like he's about to claw John Connors face. I too tried the NECA 12'' with the Hot Toys Mini-gun but couldn't get it to work and ended up breaking the handle off.

Platty
10-02-2009, 04:36 PM
My 12 inch pescadero arrived today, it's awesome..!

Only problem i've had is the paint on the hands coming off too easy when you get him to hold the shotgun. So the same problem everyone else has had, really!

Fortunately enough, a little games workshop 'dwarf flesh' paint worked wonders, I did a little touch up and it was bob-on, so providing I don't mess about with the shotgun and keep a similar pose, he's perfect!

It's an issue that wants addressing, though. Maybe Neca should've packaged him with the shotgun already in his hands, pre posed, or something.

If I was to reccommend one thing for getting the shotgun in his hands, it would be: put it in his left hand 1st. Then put his right hand on the trigger and handle. I found it a lot easier this way. Also try to prise open the fingers to make way for the gun. Maybe soften it up with a hairdryer, or something. I avoided this though, because if the paint comes off easily enough by just putting the gun in, what would a hairdryer do!?!

All in all though really pleased, at this price its worthy of a 10/10. Love the headsculpt!!!!

Platty
10-02-2009, 04:56 PM
Y' know, a custom cyberdine 12 inch wouldn't be impossible to do.

Spray or paint his shirt grey and remove the glasses and paint the eyes, for starters. Then some pretty complex hand mod would probably need to be done. I was thinking you could chop his hands off at the wrists, leaving the ball jointed part still connected. So you're not taking the whole hand off. Then attach some gloved hands from HT or SS, which would have been modified to fit the ball joints still on the figure.

Then give him a bandolier and the weapons of your choice. I'd probably go for an M79 in his right hand, and some sort of holdall / bag in his left.

I can picture it in my mind, I think it would look good!

csm, can't wait to see the results of your custom, it may just make me start on my own!

I don't think theres any need to customise a Cyberdyne version out of the NECA 12" since it will no doubt be possible to do, and with much less grief, when Hot Toys make their T2 figures.

Congrats on your 12" Pescadero Shakey. Its magnificent - I don't think they could have had the gun in his hands inside the box though as it tends to warp the accessories when this is done which would be an even worse problem. I've just gone for a one handed aiming pose with mine from the first shot he takes at the T-1000. I've got the 7"ers for the two-handed poses.

Bezzerkerr,

I'm from Malaysia. Bought it locally. :)
When I got it out of the box, the right shoulder joint was a bit tight. Then I tried to move it & pop, it became loose but no biggie. It should work just fine with the shotgun in place.
Gonna try placing the gun in his hands. Hopefully nothing breaks!

I know what your saying and I will probably get the Hot Toys one but I love the Neca Arnie. I dont mind the all plastic figure and I thingk its spot on to his build and likeness in every way.

I feel you just cant get that from a true type figure with real clothes.

Wow thats my attitude completely. I love the NECA figure for precisely the same reasons. I agree that the Hot Toys figure may not end up with the most accurate build such as we have here. I'll still be getting the HT of course but I don't think its going to put the NECA to shame by any means.

ok guys, i finally got my my T2 series 2 set this morning and i couldnt wait to get home to tear these bad boys open! sadly, the FYE by me near scranton, PA doesnt have shat. its a very small store, but the one closer to where i used to live, in middletown NY, is much bigger and thats where i got the first series of T2 figs, so i went there this morning. drove a whole hour which sucks but i really wanted these. i was there yesterday and saw them but didnt have any cash! so i had to go back today. i feel terrible that i cant post any pics for all you cuz these are 2 awsome! i wanted to be the first to post all 5 figs ina row cuz ive only seen customs. i never cared too much for leg articulation anyway, i mean when do you really see arnold really crouching or anything? hes usally standing or something.

anyway, i finally have them in hand, i only got the 2 new arnolds, final battle and cyberdyne showndown, i proilly would have gotten the endo cuz it looked like it came with a different weapon which looked sweet, i think it was a plasma cannon minigun lookin thing (werent those seen in T3?). but i didnt have enough so i passed. the ride home felt like forever to open up these babies. seriously, let me tell you this: THESE ARE THE BEST ARNOLD TERMINATOR FIGURES EVER MADE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD!! forget sideshow, forget macfarlane, forget kenner. forget'em all. THIS is where its at. i now have all 4 arnold variatations and the first series Endoskeleton. this is seriously a fans dream come true. the detail on each, VERY accurate. the first series was good but i must admit the 2nd series is muuuch cooler and were the ones i was looking foward too the most. the minigun arnold is prolly my favorite cuz he is the most "packed", with the minigun, slingbag full of ammo, and the grenade launcher. i am so impressed with this one, but also with final battle. the battle damage, blood and netal underneath, i mean, done to a T. looks exactly like the movie. and i am sooooooo happy to see for the first time actual BALL JOINTED ELBOWS AND SHOULERS!! not to mention the BJ heads as well that can be moved into practially any position, AND they even made them interchangable for a variety of looks with all 4 arnies! i mean, wow! i always thought figures of this caliber would be so much more improved with some arm articulation so you can do more poses and not just a lame "glorified statue" like mcfarlane does. the static poses work the best for terminator, especially with the added articulation, you can easily do tons of poses. even if hot toys makes there own T2 line, i am just fine with the neca line. i mean, they made pretty much ALL the different arnold terminators seen in the film. you just dont get better then this. the detail is amazing, the scale of everything, im just astounded. i actually for once am totsally satisfied with a line of figures, with only 5 different figures in it! just go get these, maybe if these do well enough we'll one day see neca do a line for the T-1000 or even the first film! but if not, i dont care anyway, this is the best terminator figures ever!

Totally share your enthusiasm for these Batfreak. Your post looks like something I wrote myself. I'm hoping to have mine tomorrow after the disappointment of not getting them the week just gone. I'll honestly be crushed if I don't see a box waiting for me in work.

I agree that these don't need leg articulation, its not Van Damme here. And I'm thrilled that, since there is no hip jointing, they chose a relatively neutral leg pose rather than some dramatic McFarlane-esque wide action stance.

I also agree on the coolness of having 4 variants each with interchangeable heads. It allows for almost every combination of outfit/weapons/battledamage seen in the film. I myself am buying multiples of each figure so as to put together as many worthwhile 'versions' as possible simultaneously.

The only way these figures could be improved is with better paintjobs on the heads, particularly the non-sunglasses figures. There is also one or two accessories they didn't make that would have been nice such as the rosebox for the shotgun with the Pescadero escape figure (which lets face it is really from the mall scene); perhaps also the metal pole he uses first to prise himself free from the giant gears in the steel mill and that he then uses to attack the T-1000 before having it turned on himself. Maybe Steel Mill T-1000 will have it! :D

:banana Result! Got my 2 sets from BBTS today, so thats 2 Cyberdynes, 2 Final battles and 2 endos!

Well, fantastic figures as I knew already. The sculpting is amazing, even the bandoliers on the 2 Arnie figures are different sculpts and of course removeable. If you swapped out the gloved hands for Pescadero hands you'd have desert scenes Arnie - no 'poorly-affected* smile' headsculpt though :lol

*or should that be 'effected'

So yeah, great figures but not without issues unfortunately. These are paint and warped accessories.

I didn't get one grenade launcher out of the 4 that isn't bent to some degree. Likewise my two gatling guns are a smidge mashed in the middle of the barrells where the twisty ties held them. I think this is going to be a problem on everyone's figures.

I've also noticed more paint errors than I found on wave 1. Y'know, paint where it shouldn't be and also some paint coming off the accessories onto the figure where it might not have been completely dry when everything was put together. My Cyberdyne T-800s have some grey wash or whatever you'd call it in the wrinkles, one slightly worse than the other, which makes him look a tad zombie-like. And on the one that has this problem the worse there is also a slight excess of paint in the lips that makes them look sealed together - the normal lip seam is gone in one half of his mouth along with the sculpted lip detail that would have been there. And unfortunately all the paint problems are not limited to just one of my figures like I would prefer. My other Cyberdyne figure has paint scratched off around the base of his neck where it appears to have come off inside the t-shirt collar - so posing him looking up and off to the side isn't really an option. The paint on the Final Battle figure has some problems too. The blood on the exposed endo chest and knee looks like it was applied by a child as does the flesh coloured paint on the battle-damaged arm jacket. There are sculpted tears in the upper part of the jacket on this arm but the flesh colour is painted around these tears rather than in them. Not as bad as it sounds but I have to mention it. Lastly the eyes aren't painted great, particularly the one human eye on the phase 2 battledamage head, again one of mine being worse than the other.

That looks like a lot of negative but in reality its overwhelmingly positive. Just, if anyone is shopping for these in person rather than ordering online, study a few examples in store for the best looking paint apps and if you can see if the weapons are visibly warped.

Platty
10-05-2009, 07:00 AM
Glad you got them mate, sorry to hear about the issues, though.

I kind of know what to expect with the paint, so i'm ready for that, but I really hope the weapons aren't warped in any way on mine! I can't imagine having a bent mini-gun, it would be turd. I'd also imagine it would be really hard to straighten out.

As I said congrats and I hope to see some pics!

It might be possible to fix the mini-gun issue by wedging something between the barrells to straighten them out. Just, as it is its a bit...zigzagging and on both of mine to a greater and lesser extent. I've seen it on other peoples' here aswell

Man, I cannot wait for my Toys R Us to get them! I have to have the 12" bd version and probably the 7" version also. I love that sculpt.

I can't wait to see how well the 12'' battle damaged arnold turns out. Hopefully its as good as the 12'' pescadero escape. Neca pretty much hit a homerun with these amazing figures! Now I just wish a company could aquire the terminator 1 license.

Can't wait either!!!!:D

Cool. Good effort to recreate the film environments. I've been having camera problems but even in-between when I get the damn thing working (camera phone) I can't find a decent light and I refuse to use flash - I think it makes even Hot Toys figures look cheap. I think I'll wait and see what I can get in natural light.

Oh and turns out one of the problems on one of my cyberdyne T-800s isn't a problem afterall - I thought paint had come off the base of his neck when in fact it was paint from the inside collar that had come off and onto the neck - I was able to scratch it off.

yeah, im such an amatuer but i dont care. i discovered piknik and started doing some interesting things with the photo's, and thought i'd try it out here too. i love the "cinematic" mode that makes it look like a movie scene with the "widescreen" bars. that was nifty. i saw some model cop cars at acmoore, might get a couple to make a better T2 scene. but im no pro, i just do this stuff for fun. but i think some of them turned out better then i thought they would, though i think i goofed on a couple lol. ive been useing my digital camcorder camera with the little chip. luckoly my comp has a chip port so its easy to upload photo's. but i enjoy doing this kinda stuff, i thought back in the day i would like to do photography. its just my hobby now.

Nice to see comparison shots with the 12" T3 figure. Not a bad figure, although the hair looks off - like the SS it looks more slicked back than spiked. Tankman seems to have mastered the spiked up look now though.

I wish someone would make and retail environments for these figures sort of like member Batman79 is doing with his TDK Interrogation Room that hes now selling through BBTS. I'd be all over anything and everything from the steel mill in T2 that I could use with NECA and McFarlane's figures.

the helicopter dio that came with the T3 deluxe set is actually pretty sweet to use for the T2 figures.

Got mine today. I sprung for the full case at EE. I've got no time to go hunting. I'm glad they finally made T2 figures with Arnies likeness. Now we just need some T1 Arnies!!

Impressive..most impressive. I want something like that quantity in the end, maybe more, for various poses, accessory combos and customs.

When I get my order from staractionfigures I'll have 4 Pescaderos, 3 man or machines, 4 cyberdyne showdowns and 3 Final battles. Thinking of adding more to that. I want to create the T-800 from the SWAT scene with the pistol where if I'm not mistaken he should have battledamage on his face and chest only - this would require another Cyberdyne showdown (legs & arms) and another Final battle (torso and head) to create. I'd also like to do one from the first fight with the T-1000 at the steel mill before his arm gets messed up. This should need another Final battle figure and just the arm from a Cyberdyne showdown.

A smaller custom I'd thought of was putting the ungloved hands from a Pescadero Escape figure onto the Cyberdyne Showdown minus all the weapons and bandolier to create the T-800 in the desert scenes. Although this one would seem less worthwhile as he doesn't do much in these scenes.

One last minor accessory addition I thought of last night to a Cyberdyne Showdown figure is an axe for when hes smashing stuff up - I think its a special edition scene. Haven't seen the theatrical cut in years as it wasn't released in R2 dvd.

Cyberdine Showdown is a great figure

chances we'll see a NECA T-1000?

1/6 T-1000 & Cyberdine Showdown would be nice.

I wish we could get some kind of info from NECA about the T-1000 and how well these figures are selling. Their site doesn't have any new news and Tankman hasn't been in these threads for awhile. He probably wouldn't be allowed say anything anyway.

These figures just demand that the T-1000 be made, most importantly a non-battledamaged police officer version with the same articulation as the 800. As with the 800 I'd buy quite a few of these. I'd also really love to have John Connor, sarah connor (steel mill scenes) and a generic resistance soldier from the opening flashforward perhaps. Heck I'd even buy Dyson, SWAT guys, Dr. Silberman, a Pescadero Sarah Connor - all much less likely of course.
