I tossed the NECA Final Battle's extra head and upgrade my old McFarlane figure. Made a HUGE difference! Looks like he rolled right off the tanker :D (aside from having too many grenades left...)

I have a feeling Tankman sculpted these figures with that very much in mind. 8 years on (if I'm right) that McF figure finally lives up to its billing. Another reason these NECA figures are my favourite of this year and thats even amongst all my Hot Toys purchases.

I wondered about that as well. Seemed like an awfully nice cooincidence that the NECA head just wedges right in there with no real modifications. I do want to go back and add a ball joint to be more permanent though. That McFarlane head is going in the trash :monkey4

Just got the Battle Damaged and Cyberdyne Showdown figures, they are awesome :D, though sculpting on BD version is much more accurate. Are any of these going to be released in 18inch line or just the Mall figure or Pescerado (however its spelled) ?

Should I get all :P? I already have the endo 8" and 18" from earlier releases, don't like the newer endo: face is awkward.

Finally saw wave 2 at TRU - got em all, including the Endo
I've been thinking long and hard about these two waves, but here are my favs, in order of their coolness (IMO)

12" Arnie Pescadero Escape - gotta love the bigger figs
7" Cyberdyne Showdown - great fig! Excellent accessories. This is the Terminator 2 fig I've always wanted
7" Final Battle...gotta love 2 heads, cool detail
7" Man or Machine - cool fig - very cool arm detail
7" Pescadero Escape - weakest of the Arnie figs - sun glasses in this scale = not good
7" Endo Battle Damage - as terrible as the wave 1 figure, but with a cool accessory -
7" Endo - ONLY FIG I PASSED ON...Horrible head....inferior to the Cult Classics one and without that incredible base, couldnt justify the cost of this one.......

Thanks, NECA, Tankman - fantastic 2 waves, overall! Bring on more!!!!

11-02-2009, 06:27 PM
how are the paint apps for you guys? i had to rummage through dozen before i can find one that is just barely passable. series 1 had some paint issues, but this series 2... when you look at a dozen figures and they all have their eyes painted sloppily, it's just scary.

i even asked the store manager if i could just go and pick my choice from their other stores, to see i could find a decent one. she said no - since i pre-ordered from that particular branch, that's where i should pick it up. "why would you need to go to another store. there are still so many here?", she said. yeah, and they all look like crap. picked a pair, the best among the worst of the worst. and i'm not happy.

Valfar

Like the Gears of War figures i found and bought,these are very hit or miss with paint application..I was going to get the Arnie with gattling gun but, his hair was sloopy and had a lazy eye..so, i went with the final battle Arnie they had at my LCS instead, that figure is awesome.I also noticed out of a few final battle figures..the damaged arm was almost clean on one and the other(i bought) had lots of blood on it.

Platty
11-02-2009, 08:09 PM
Paint really is an area Neca needs to improve on. They're great figures but in terms of paint, Mcfarlane has them beat.

I hope when it comes to ordering my Final BAttle and Mini gun Arnie's, the paint is good on them.

I know what you mean...

Here's a comparison head shot of the cult classic and the t2 endo. I'm wondering if it's a factory defect or something coz it's basically the same mold. One sleepy terminator there. :lol Are all endoskeleton's sculpted this way?

11-03-2009, 01:14 PM
not a defect, it's purposely re-sculpted that way, to make it more 'angry' looking. problem is, the left eye and the right eye are not symmetrical to each other, making the endo looks stupid instead of menacing.

Bezzerkerr
11-03-2009, 05:40 PM
nice comparison toyrewind.

I picked up Cyberdyne Showdown and I'm very happy. I've been waiting 18 years for this figure. The head sculpt is OK, Minigun makes up for it.

The original Cult classics endo head doesn't look that great either really. The eyes are a bit too manic and the jaw pistons are big bulky things. I think they improved those on the new one. Pity the eyes are worse what with the 'evil' browline seemingly sculpted as though it is capable of movement and human expression. McFarlane's remains the best endo-head in that scale.

Tankman seemed to suggest that the factories in china are at fault for how the new endoskull turned out - how can that be the case? What could have happened there?

Anywho, I have all my Arnie T-800s and completed my planned customs. Swapping parts was easy...well pulling the arms out required brute force and I've still got the remnants of the welts on my hands to prove it but it can be done..and without any breakage - the shoulder joint is solid and strong, it doesn't snap even though it seems like it will.

And I can't post pics!! Its just killing me.

Platty
11-07-2009, 04:38 PM
Hi mate! Look forward to the pics if you ever do get to posting any.

So, what are the customs you have made, any details?

Thanks.

a-dev
11-07-2009, 10:48 PM
I'm glad you asked Shakey! :D Mind you, you won't be! :lol

All my customs are doable by anyone, no special skill required, and I've got NECA to thank for this for making the figures so excellent in the first place. I showed my gratitude by buying 24 of these figures, 4 of those being endoskeletons, the rest an army of mini-schwarzenneggers.

I made with partswapping:

-SWAT shootout T-800 (required undamaged left arm and undamaged left knee - Cyberdyne showdown - but damage to the face and chest - Final Battle + appropriate accessories) You may recall he doesn't sustain the knee damage till after he leaps off the liquid nitrogen tanker truck thus simply using the Final battle legs wouldn't do.

-Steel mill fight T-800 (essentially the NECA articulated version of what we got in the McFarlane MM4 figure - this one needed an undamaged left arm from Cyberdyne showdown)

-Uncle Bob T-800 (from the 'enrique' scenes. Just a Cyberdyne showdown figure with Pescadero's gloveless hands) Tried shaping his hand into a thumbs up but it wouldn't stay in position, I was going for the scene when Sarah is musing about how he was the best father figure John could have had.

-an altered Pescadero T-800, for the pose when he emerges from the elevator in slow-mo and sarah sees him for the first time....this was quite **** of me but I really wanted the exact pose which the standard Pescadero Escape figure cannot achieve with the right arm only bending 90 degrees. I swapped it out for the right arm of a spare McFarlane MM4 which is sculpted in a 45degree angle. And with the McFarlane hand switched for a Pescadero hand he now holds the shotgun up exactly like in that brief moment of the film. I told you, **** :rolleyes: Now the McFarlane arm doesn't attach into the NECA shoulder socket quite right...in fact I can't even remember how or if its connected. However it is held in place at least by the jacket. Its a bit wobbly but it can hold the pose I want.

-NECA endoskeleton with McFarlane MMV endoskull - lads, do this one. The NECA figure is infinitely improved with the Mcfarlane head. The body was more accurate than McFarlanes to begin with and now that Ive gotten rid of that grumpy old man headsculpt in favour of the McFarlane endoskull I feel I have the perfect endoskeleton figure in this scale minus a chrome finish and light-up eyes. I recommend keeping the neck and pistons intact on the NECA and only bringing the McFarlane head across. You can hollow out the socket on the McFarlane head to fit the balljoint. I did this using a few different small screwdriver heads. Crude but I'm too afraid to use a dremmel.

-Pescadero T-800 w/out sunglasses - (Pescadero body, MoM head) simple headswap which the figures were designed to do anyway.

-Man or Machine w/ modified endo arm (created new hand from McFarlane endo parts and used less bloody and more shiny forearm from a NECA endoskeleton) Wasn't happy with how the endo arm degraded from proto-to-production so made a new one.


And this is what I did with the rest of my uncustomised T-800s:

-1 Cyberdyne showdown fully kitted out with mini-gun for 'taking care of the police'

-1 Cyberdyne showdown w/axe for smashing stuff! (remembered I had an axehead from an old MooreActionCollectibles Buffy figure which coincidentally looked exactly like the axe he used in the film. I attached the axehead to a less wonky looking handle et voila ...wasn't going to bother creating this since its a minor scene but it looks cool and he poses well with it)

-1 Cyberdyne showdown reloading grenade launcher, went for the Sideshow PF pose here

-1 Cyberdyne Showdown with just pistol from the cyberdyne lobby "I insist"...again pretty minor scene but it was in my head for some reason

-1 Pescadero escape for use actually in the mall scene when he strides towards the T-1000 firing the shotgun 2-handed

-1 Pescadero Escape again for the mall scene for the first hand-to-hand fight scene. This is one where I really hope NECA do the T-1000, otherwise he'll be spare with no one to fight

-1 Man or Machine to keep as an unchanged example of the figure.

-1 Final Battle for lowering into the molten steel

-1 Final Battle for shaking hands with my McFarlane Sarah Connor

-1 Final Battle for firing last grenade into T-1000

-1 Final Battle for being impaled by T-1000 whilst reaching for grenade launcher...again really hoping NECA actually make the T-1000

Ultimately all this customising and partswapping left some things spare so I've been trying to create unique stuff out of it - one of these things being a Cyberdyne Showdown figure just before he puts on the glove over his now exposed endo arm. I had a CS figure who was completely intact apart from his left arm which he'd donated to another custom. So he received the left arm from a McFarlane MM4 T-800 and I gave him a portion of wrist and the endoskeleton hand from a Man or Machine figure. However Ive yet to attach this arm to a satisfying degree, it falls off. I also went to the bother of attaching a displaced NECA endoskeleton head onto a McFarlane endo body which doesn't look great but I'll use as background diorama fodder.

I bought:

6 Final Battle
6 Cyberdyne Showdown
5 pescadero escape
3 Man or machine
2 first wave endoskeleton
2 second wave endoskeleton

Now lets just see if this is the longest post of all time....:o

Excellent. I like the sound of this, thanks for posting. I really hope the current batch of figures are doing as well as they deserve to so we can get more. I don't think I exaggerate to say that they are quite possibly my favourite figures in my collection which includes Hot Toys stuff obviously. I'll undoubtedly buy the Hot Toys versions too but I still enjoy the 7" scale and those are cheaper so I can buy multiples as I have done.

Also great to know that T1 is a possibility. It'd only be about time someone did it!

Gonna give a big thanks in here to A-dev. Hooked me up with the McFarlane T2 Arnie grenade launcher & bandolier, the Neca final battle grenade launcher (purposefully for the strap, I didn't know he was sending that!) and man or machine pistol, all because i'd lost my accessories from my McFarlane figure. What a guy!

I'm glad you received those. It's the first time I ever sent anything to anyone so I wasn't certain all would work out well. Yeah I figured I'd send that spare neca grenade launcher too in case you wanted to add the strap to the mcfarlane one, a little detail they forgot about. Or you just have an extra neca grenade launcher, doesn't matter to me as I'd no use for it.

Anyway I see there's no news about the 12" final battle or any new announcements so I shall return to the Internet blackout I've been in for about 2 weeks now

I finally snagged these two in a local TRU the other night. I really love NECA figures, for what they cost, you get some beautiful figures and you can build a nice collection without losing a lot of space or money. I just hope to see more depth to T2 besides Arnold, but not holding my breath.

Are we even sure that Neca is still coming out with the 12" battle damaged T-800? The Neca site shows every figure but that one.

I've heard about 12" BD T-800 from a local seller here in Thailand, who is also a NECA-McFarlane collector, that NECA is having problem with T2 license. I'm not sure if the license has run out of time or been bought by other company, but he said it might turn out like NECA 300 which they had once shown the prototype of Xerxes and Persian army figure set and it was never launched due to license problem. I've never seen the mentioned prototype so I'm not sure if he said true story or not.

The boss man wanted to wait on the next 12 inch figure. The 7 inch Terminators have sold very well but the 12 incher isn't what he wanted sells wise. I'm not sure when the next one will be coming out but I think it's the figure fans want more than the one we have out now. I for one want this guy to come out 18inchs. I do have 2 test shots of the next 12 inch figure and it's really nice. The 7 inch line has done very very well and we might have more fun Terminator stuff coming soon. Wait and see.

Find it mad that the 12" didn't sell as much as people at neca had hoped. It's a brilliant figure and neca should be proud of it, imo!

Good to know that with the release of the 2nd line the terminator figures aren't dead. Look forward to seeing what Neca comes up with! Hard to see what other arnold figures from T2 they could do, so i'm guessing it will be a couple of T100's or some T1 figures.

Still at a loss as to whether the 12" battle damage is coming out at all? Tankman?

I hope the next 12" figure is the cyberdine assault mini-gun version, or something entirely new.

a-dev

Got my Internet back! No more awkward phonebrowsing! So without further adieu:

Sounds like promising news on the NECA Terminator front. Glad to hear the 7" line has done well if not the 12". I presume the T-1000 is a definite and the most obvious one to come next. I hope there'll be multiple versions like with the T-800 but I guess I understand that he might not be as good a seller as an Arnie figure. I won't type out my entire T-1000 wishlist again but the most important to me would be a non-battledamaged Robert Patrick.

The fact that he could 'heal' any 'wounds' and revert to a pristine state is what really set him apart visually from Arnie's T-800 and this undamaged state is how he appeared in the majority of the film. Plus we got two versions of battledamage from McFarlane already. So I really want a straight-up 'human' Robert Patrick here. It'd be the most useful to me.

Hopefully he'll have interchangeable parts and have a decent neutral (but could be about to move) leg pose and have similar articulation overall to the T-800s. Seriously looking forward to him because I did buy multiple Arnies in anticipation of setting up different 'dioramas' with the T-1000.

Now for the parts where I'm probably being over-optimistic! I'd love if the line would also include Sarah and John connor, I'd buy multiples of those for my set-ups. I'm probably an exception rather than a typical buyer there. Also my future war dioramas have loads of endoskeletons but no Resistance Soldiers to fight against so one or two of those would be cool. NECA will probably prefer to stick with main characters though, its not the Hasbro Star Wars line here where they've even just made the legendary Ice Cream Maker guy.

My other hopes would be box sets, vehicles and dioramas but I'm not sure if theres a recent history for this kind of thing from NECA -

T-800 on Harley
T-1000 in biker gear with police motorbike
frozen T-1000 and T-800 for the Hasta la Vista scene
T-800 with arm stuck in giant gears etc.

As to the 'other cool things' Tankman hinted at, hopefully I've already mentioned one or 2 of them, but T1 figures would be the 'coolest' thing I could conceive of. I have no doubt I'll be happy whatever we end up getting, even if my insane wishlists are not realised. Good times indeed.

What's the status with the license though. I've heard the ownership of the Terminator franchise is iffy again, does that impact current product license holders or are you grandfathered and still able to make things?

Even if the line ends, at least some cool figures came out of it. The coolness of T2 is very well captured in these figures. For overall figure, my favorites are Pescadero and Cyberdyne, they just really capture Arnie's posture and looking wielding those weaponds very well. BD looks great for the details in paint and sculpt but isn't a wow figure as far as holding the weapon, and Man or Machine is just cool for capturing that neat moment of the movie. I too really hope to see 12" BD though, I really want BD T-800 in my 12" T2 collection.

I haven't heard and I to really want it to be 18inches. Were not making many 18inch figures now days and it would be a real shame not to get the Terminator 18 inches. TRU wanted only 12 and that's why we went that way because they ordered so many. I'm not sure when the BD is coming out and I have to back in NJ and fans will love it I would think. Myself I like the 18 inch scale best. I'm thinking how great a Terminator and Predator would be.

Thanks man but if you really like the Predator you should go ahead and get the HT figure. I feel the same way knowing HT can make this figure more accurate but it's still a way cool figure. I just got it myself a few days ago and it's a way fun figure. Sure it needs bigger legs,feet and a few other things but all in all very cool. Maybe we'll see a NECA Predator 1 figure one day. I hope so because I would do my best to make it really accurate. I got the CM Predator and it's nice but still not near dead on enough to the movie like it should be.

Right now we don't have a new Myers planned. I wish we did because I love M Myers and would like to sculpt another one.
When we lost the license to Freddy and Jason a few years ago I wanted to cry. Lucky for us though Mez never did the figures Randy and I had in mind. They did do part 3, 4 and 6 Jason and we were hoping for to do those. We'll see what we end up doing but I will say we have some really cool thing for Freddy right now. I'm looking forward to making the head sculpts match the makeup from the movies. His Glove has a likeness also and we'll try to get that right. Part two isn't the best movie but his makeup was so scary in that one.

I agree it isn't embarassed by the HT figures at all and just happens to be a perfect scale with them. And as an all-sculpted figure it may actually turn out better than HT inevitable effort in terms of proportions and the 'fit' of the clothes. The likeness may end up being better too - I think it outdoes the HT Dutch figure in its resemblance to Schwarzenegger. Obviously however I can't wait for the HT one and will definitely buy it.

Cool, I'll be looking forward to your pics. You have an eye for particular film moments and getting the lighting right. I wish I had proper dioramas for these figures, as it stands the only place I have that'd have been a better location to take photos than on top of my HT Tumbler shipping box is a mantlepiece! Also I don't have the greatest know-how about using a camera. I would have preferred in the case of my photo with the crawling BD T-800 that he be in focus rather than the T-1000 in the background but I wasn't sure how to do that. In any case I tried to replicate certain poses and certain camera angles that I know from the film and hope that people get the idea of how useful these figures are.

I was going to add film quotes to demonstrate what scenes I was thinking of but my staging of the photos isn't attractive enough in the least to really sell these moments. Still I hope you can envision the T-800 being lowered into the molten steel with Brad Fiedels theme playing, a guy in a helicopter saying ''He's got a goddamned Mini-gun!", and Sarah's monologue in the case of my Uncle Bob Terminator - "Seeing John with the machine it was suddenly all clear etc etc of all the would-be fathers that came and went over the years, this thing, this machine was the sanest choice"

Did you sculpt the McFarlane MMV endo head? I think that looks pretty good on the NECA body and its easy to hollow out its neck to fit the balljoint which is what I did. Its a pity about the new head but when I get my dioramas going properly again its not totally wasted, it'll just go to the back as my 'out of focus' endoskeleton such as there was in the film!

Your MM4 T-800 is still a great figure and has finally now lived up to its potential. I guess the proportions aren't quite as accurate as your new figure but now that we have the new figure I can live with that. The pose is great and the leg positioning being more action-orientated offered me something in creating my "T-800 to be beaten up by the T-1000!" figure from the moments between when he almost cuts the T-1000 in half to before he sustains his final face battle damage.

Seriously can't wait to see the new stuff!

Great work on putting the McFarlane arm onto the neca body. It gives it a pose I wish the neca figure could achieve as standard.

The Cyberdine figure loading the grenade is pure bad ass. I am really tempted to buy 2 of the cyberdine figures just so I can display one like that along side the fully kitted-up mini gun Arnie.

Was it easy swapping the Mcfarlane arm onto the neca body?

Right now we don't have a new Myers planned. I wish we did because I love M Myers and would like to sculpt another one.
When we lost the license to Freddy and Jason a few years ago I wanted to cry. Lucky for us though Mez never did the figures Randy and I had in mind. They did do part 3, 4 and 6 Jason and we were hoping for to do those. We'll see what we end up doing but I will say we have some really cool thing for Freddy right now. I'm looking forward to making the head sculpts match the makeup from the movies. His Glove has a likeness also and we'll try to get that right. Part two isn't the best movie but his makeup was so scary in that one.

I love the makeup especially in Part 2...Kevin Yagher's makeup was so damn cool in it...are you guys making a figure of him from that one?
Freddy's look in this scene is what I hope you nail Kyle:

Thanks :D

The McFarlane arm (the right arm with elbow tightly bent) isn't completely secure in the socket of the NECA body. In fact, and for some reason I can't even remember for sure, I think the only way its staying on is the NECA jacket slightly wraps around the shoulder of the McFarlane arm keeping it in place. There is some sideways looseness if I manipulate it that you wouldn't expect of the original arm. However it looks seamless and as I said it holds in place without dropping out of pose, so I'm happy. The other thing is I did have to glue the hand on at a slightly unnatural angle, you might be able to tell from the pics. I did this, I think, because the orientation of wrist and palm etc otherwise didn't quite hold the gun at the precise angle I wanted even with the super-bent elbow of the McFarlane arm. So that wrist articulation is lost but it matters not since I always intended for this figure to have one pose only - the exact pose when sarah connor sees him coming out of the elevator at Pescadero in slow-mo. I just wish I had a Pescadero backdrop to display him against.

The Cyberdyne T-800 loading the grenade launcher is obviously inspired by the Sideshow PF which I don't have and wouldn't get despite my apparent Terminator fanatacism. This little figure will do me. It does look really cool. I knew I had to have one Cyberdyne T-800 using the grenade launcher. However the hands actually aren't sculpted to hold it in a firing position so theres no choice in the matter but to have him loading the weapon - obviously this required the McFarlane MM4 figure's M79 as the NECA one isn't jointed and has no moving parts. And hes holding a McFarlane grenade which is a bit too small but no one would notice. If you do decide to get a 2nd Cyberdyne figure you should have the ingredients. Your McFarlane T-800 gets the Grenade launcher from your second Cyberdyne, you'll probably want to unbend the stock as they all seem to be warped, and you give the McFarlane M79 to the NECA figure.

What I'm really happy about is that I was able to extract the neck-ball from 2 spare NECA torsos and use them in my 2 McFarlane T-800s so now the NECA heads are secure and don't have to worry about them falling off every time I touch the figures. Sadly it did mean carving those NECA torsos apart so they are now useless.

Darn it! Tonight I had an epiphany on how to more permanently attach the NECA right arm to my McFarlane custom below:

http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt28/a-dev/IMG_1080.jpg

in the pic above the undamaged arm is merely held in by blutack which is obviously unsatisfying. Suddenly it occurs to me that I can simply do what I did to attach the battledamaged arm - glue the piece of the endoskeleton figure into which the shoulder is inserted onto the McFarlane body and use an endoskeleton's shoulder joint (which I discovered the 7" Aoshima endo's was most suitable) to replace the joint in the NECA arm. The pieces fit together comfortably, all articulation is retained and the endo pieces would be hidden perfectly by the jacket!

Except I'd need to carve off more of the underlying McFarlane body in order to get the endoskeletal socket both deep enough and lined up enough for the NECA arm to attach without sticking out awkwardly. Everything else done I set about doing that and no sooner have I begun carving when the blade slips and I almost slice the flesh off my thumb knuckle! :horror Not pleasant. The bleeding was heavy but seemed to slow down quickly so it can't be that bad. Its definitely the worst bit of battle damage I've sustained during all my amatuer customising though. I'm surprised its only happened for the first time now quite frankly. But the most annoying thing is I just want to get on with this job and I don't think I can risk it :banghead

12-01-2009, 12:05 AM
Done! I went and finished it. However I must go asleep. I'll get to pics tomorrow. Basically though it will look no different than the pics I already posted. I inserted endoskeleton shoulder jointing to both keep the right arm attached and allow it to move every which way - just like the NECA arm can on its own body. So I now can consider it a complete figure.

People will wonder why I bothered when all I've created is essentially the same as the NECA final battle figure with the phase 1 BD head. However I had this old McFarlane custom that I didn't want going to waste. It now benefits from a fully articulated right arm instead of that preposed 45degree angle arm and also my own battledamaged arm which has elbow articulation over the NECA version - that only has jointing in the shoulder. It also has a more dramatic positioning of the legs and this will look better when hes getting the crap beaten out of him by the T-1000 in the moments leading up to having his head rammed with the huge steel beam!

Now heres hoping I don't bleed to death in my sleep. :D

One thing that really impresses me with the BD figure is the detailed paint on the hand, they really did a nice job of showing the little bits of exposed Endo and flesh beneath the glove as it was torn away, it could easily have been left at sculpt with no paint, I was surprised to see the detail work on it, and it really adds to the figure having that.

True, although the paint apps vary from figure to figure. On some the blood and/or silver is misplaced or drowns the sculpted detail. Not too bad overall though.

Theres a few details that really impress alright - who knew that the M79 grenade launcher broke at the stock in the film? I didn't know until this figure. Also the bandoliers are individually sculpted for scene accuracy. I happened to notice on a recent viewing of the film that when in the Cyberdyne building the bandolier's strap looped over and partially concealed the buckle on T-800s back - exactly like the figure. Meanwhile all the scenes in the Steel mill at the end have the buckle exposed and at his front left shoulder which the figure again replicates. Clearly the film was studied with a kind of obsessive detail that couldn't fail to disappoint any Terminator fan and 7" figure collector.

I actually am going to watch T2 carefully next time, I'm sure the broken stock was done because it's accurrate, but I never noticed that about it and I'm curious where it happens in the film, there's no moment that stood out like, ooh the grenade launcher got broken, must just be a subtle thing.

Ok heres the McFarlane custom that I finalised the other day. The only thing I changed since my last pics is that the right NECA arm is now more permanently attached and articulated rather than blutacked in. I think I've improved the proportions though by making it sit in deeper into the 'socket'.

I knew nothing about them until the 4 of them were pictured at what I guess was Toyfair (I don't keep track of which convention is which). So it was a total surprise to me.

Not sure what Kyle is referring to but I'm sure I'll be pleased. I'll take pretty much anything pertaining to T1 and T2 but I'm sure I could also be tempted by T3 stuff.

I assume the T-1000 is coming, ideally another quartet because of all his potential variability.

I'd love if there were box sets with environment pieces or box sets like T-800 on Harley coming but I'll try not to keep my hopes up of that. No more speculations from me because what we get is what we get, its already so cool to have these T-800 figures.

Furlong John Connor would certainly boost my T2 collection and because of the amount of T-800s I bought I would also buy more than a few of young JC to go with them. I just can't see it happening but if theres a silver lining its probably more likely to happen with NECA than it was with McFarlane. Who'd have thought they'd make 4 T-800s? Granted theres a lot of repeated parts.

I never really studied John connor in T2 so I'm not sure how much variation he has in the film and if there'd be a 'need' for more than 1 figure of him. Perhaps a dirtied, sweaty version from the Steel mill scenes and a normal 'day' version for earlier scenes.

I wouldn't mind seeing - so much for me not speculating anymore - a Pescadero Escape Sarah Connor, a sarah connor with the denim jacket from the desert scenes and a combat fatigues Sarah with messed, sweaty hair, that SWAT shotgun and a more action-orientated stance than we got on the McFarlane one. These would all be useful figures for me.

My most hoped-for version of the T-1000 is a plain cop figure with no battledamage since that was his appearance for the majority of the film. I'm certain I'd buy quite a few of these. I think I could kinda live without the Biker cop version if it meant getting as many possible variations of non-BD and BD of the normal cop version. Because really when he is in biker cop mode he has no interraction with the other main characters except when he gets frozen and the T-800 shoots him to pieces. So for my little display purposes the biker cop T-1000 would be slightly less useful. However I'll definitely take him if he's made just because it is a memorable look.

If the T-1000 features swappable parts, as I hope it will even moreso than the T-800 had, heres the constituent parts I hope we get with one figure or another (this is optimistically assuming a similar 4 figure format):

-Non-battledamaged Robert Patrick head (perhaps with the head-bowed upturned eyes look)
-split-head Robert Patrick (yet to be done by anyone)
-a non-BD regular cop torso
-a shotgun-hit regular cop torso
-normal cop legs (with shoes as opposed to boots) in similar pose to T-800
-Biker cop (steel mill scenes) legs with boots still on also in fairly neutral pose
-BD normal cop torso cut apart from shoulder to waist (never done before)
-normal hands, one gun-holding
-hands with index fingers fashioned into blades
-hook arms (for prising apart elevator doors)
-beretta
-metal pole he beats & impales the T-800 with

That might look like a lot but he won't have much in the way of accessories so swappable arms, hands, heads etc seems like it would be reasonable to me.

The list leaves out Biker cop T-1000, donut head, and Exploded T-1000. McFarlane did the latter two. In an ideal world we'd see those redone because they're not exactly scene-accurate due to McFarlanes attempts to make them an All-in-One figure but I'm possibly being over-optimistic as it is so I'd rather see what has never been done before in this scale.

MaulFan
12-08-2009, 08:28 PM
Connor would be about 1 figure for T2, with swappable heads for clean and sweaty at the most. You could do one of him on his bike, but I doubt for Connor they'd do that, likely they'd never do that even.

I do wish NECA could give us multiples of a character without recycling. It's so nice to have 4 representations of T-800 from T2, but all 4 having the same legs and torso for the most part, and 2 having the same arms, is a hair bland. Fortunately, their weaponry is different enough it can distract, but it was same with Wolf Predator, 2 versions with only the head and accessories really changing.

I'd be in for a Furlong Connor but I can't see hot toys doing it if they pick up the license. In fact its the Connor I want the most. People always slate him in the role saying hes annoying and stuff but I think thats what made the character great , he acted like any kid would and he didn't smash any lights from what I know.

They could do a few T-1000's esecially since they did so many Arnolds. They could do regular with battle damaged parts, battle damaged with different weapon arms, helicoptor version with helmet with variant frozen parts from when he froze. There is ALOT of potential there. For Connor they could do with the flannel and with it tied around his waste showing the Public Enemies shirt.

They definitely are but our man on the inside (who happens to be the very guy whose making them!) is understandably tightlipped at the moment about what exactly we should expect.

One has to assume the T-1000 is a given though surely.

I'd be in for a Furlong Connor but I can't see hot toys doing it if they pick up the license. In fact its the Connor I want the most. People always slate him in the role saying hes annoying and stuff but I think thats what made the character great , he acted like any kid would and he didn't smash any lights from what I know.
I was about his age when I saw T2 and I had the biggest crush on Eddie Furlong as John Connor. I thought he did a great job.

Anyway I saw a T-800 endo and T2 Arnold at the comic book store a few days ago. Would have picked up the endo except he looked like crap.

He did a better job than most newbie child actors would have. I'd rather a bit of over-acting than something wooden and monotone like you'd get from most kids. Yeah I think he was decent - a child playing a child albeit one with some unusual technical savvy. It'd be great if NECA would take the risk on a figure of him but I suppose we can't go mental if they don't.

I kinda hope they don't make any more T2 Arnolds. Not unless its a preposed Arnie sitting on a Harley with shotgun, or some sort of box set with environment pieces. I'd love one of the Hasta La Vista scene with the T-800 shooting the frozen T-1000 and one of a liquid metal T-1000 looking on as T-800 tries to free his arm from the giant gears. After all my customs I personally don't need any more ''basic figure'' T-800s, I think I've exhausted all possibilities. But with new accessories like the rosebox or the SWAT teargas launcher they could probably sucker me in again.

They also made a Seagal figure in this one and only series. The series was named Hardened. They had a few interesting future figures like McQueen from Bullit, but the first series sold so poorly it stopped before it could get interesting. It's basically a little statue as it had no articulation. And yes, there are 12" versions.

They did, I bought a few during the Matrix hype. They would have been good figures in the 80s and early-mid 90s but they were already of an inferior standard by the time they came out compared to the likes of McFarlanes movie maniacs....or indeed McFarlanes Matrix figures! Maybe they were aimed at kids but I'm pretty sure it said something to the effect of 'for adult collectors' on the boxes!

hehe, and off topic, neca's 18" alien looks MUCH better overall vs HT's "big chap", besides the crappy dome painted on texture neca did, but i'm in the process of fixing that myself - however, for 30 bux .. that's a damn good figure and the scale is awesome

Agreed on all counts. In fact I go so far as to say that when Hot Toys does T2 I won't be relegating NECAs versions to the back. The HT figure may not necessarily have as good a likeness or as accurate a build. And considering the cheaper price was why I went and bought so many to create just about every variation and pose from the film - now I won't feel the need to multi-purchase each Hot Toys figure!

No Photoshop work on the files, just used it to turn my monitor into and orange light source, but they're pure photography. I also used a hand held LED light for some highlighting and the mini gun shot is a combination of 2 LED lights from different locations.

totally, i put the same thought into buying a 15$ figure as a 150$+ figure, and all the NECA figures i've bought so far weren't just a cheap substitute to be replaced by better/more expensive pieces, it's cause i really did like the sculpt/paint app/etc .. and again the price with NECA has always been great (just like with McFarlane back in the day, too bad they dropped all their licenses cause their quality is pretty awesome imo)

that said, sideshow's PFs are unbeatable, for what they cost, the scale is just amazing and when you pick up that statue you don't regret and think to yourself why you spent that kind of money on one statue

HT, i really liked the batman figures i got from them, just recently bought the original predator from HT and i wasn't blown away by it, the 12" McF predator is a little more impressive to me and less glossy

I've come very close to picking up the HOT TOYS 1987 Predator many times, and every time I pass. I have the McFarlane 1987 predator original & clear versions and the HOT TOYS 12" Predator is not 5Xs better as reflected in their MSRP. It's a good figure, but it is nothing special. The helmet is FAR TOO LARGE and the scale is terrible off, it should be considerable larger that DUTCH and it's not.

Sometimes people buy into the Manufacturer more than the actual figure.

Its overall small size lets it down the most but the mask size doesn't really bother me now. Unlike the Big Chap Alien I feel it resembles the P1 Predator enough to not be considered a generic predator. This is a fully articulated piece which it has over the cheaper McFarlane option and it also corrects that figure's most notable innaccuracies. For me it was an essential purchase especially since I'd bought the P2 versions. How could I not buy the P1?

While you do get some crossover these are two different markets. Whatever Neca's plans were prior to this news (which they probably already had notice of) I don't see it changing. Neca's product is good for what it is; economical collectibles. They will cater to that market.

Well I'm encouraged that someone said what I was hoping and thinking. I'd hate to think if plans were suddenly dropped and I'd bought all those extra T-800s only for them to have no T-1000 to fight. But they're probably already in the works and as you say they're a cheaper alternative available to a larger amount of potential buyers with maybe some overlap of people willing to buy both the higher and lower end such as myself. As a fanatic for the first two Terminator films and collector of different scales of poseable figures this is a damn good time.

I can't wait, at the end of it all, to display every Terminator figure I own together, big and small.

So are you saying you think NECA won't do the likes of the Donut head T-1000 or the exploded T-1000 because McFarlane already did them?

For me, if theres going to be a limited amount of figures I would prefer if they made ones that haven't been done before such as the T-1000 cut down the side from shoulder to waist - I dunno if there was a nickname given to that - and of course a plain non-BD T-1000 is most important as thats how he appeared for most of the film and is what set him apart from the 800.

Sure ideally I'd love if they'd make every possible T-1000 BD version but again, if it has to be limited, I'd rather All-New ones than covering the same ground as McFarlane.

If it were up to me you'd get these in 18inchs. I like them big and it's fun for me when I do a sculpt 12 inchs and get to see it blown up bigger. It's way cool and my shelf is wanting a T800 and Predator at the larger scale. 1 /6th is cool but we've got HT for that even though we've been doing them in that scale here and there for some time now. I'm geeked up about some of their stuff and think we should go 1 /4th at least with the Terminator and Predator one day. The cost in China is making it harder and harder now days.

Off topic but I wonder if NECA would ever be likely to do the P1 special forces team as well as the Predator itself. I'd love if they did since it seems HT have made all they're going to make.

Not a problem. I really have to get off my lazy ass and do some of these mods. I love coming over to this site and others and reading about the modifications many do. I then go out and get the materials and get all caught up with life then nothing gets started and those that do don't get finished. I've had that Alclad paint in my garage for like 3 years; it's probably dried up by now.:o Yeah I am going to look into doing this within the next 2 weeks. I'll post pics if it comes out okay. :lol

That's a great suggestion!!!

I would buy everyone in Dutch's crew, in a heartbeat.

I was always only into wanting a predator. I guess I could see why some wanted Dutch. But I don't get everyone else. I can see why people want the Aliens marines but the predator crew wasn't that memorable imo.

At NECA prices, I would buy the whole crew, especially because you could get away without perfect likenesses at the scale.

I actually feel most of Dutch's crew was more memorable than the ALIENS marines, outside of Hicks, Vasquez and Hudson, they were a pretty throw away crew, and they were, they were killed off almost as quickly as they appeared, at lest most of Dutch's gang we got to spend time with for most of the film.

Does anyone know when the 12" Final Battle T-800 is coming out? I haven't seen any new information about it. I thought it was supposed to come out after the second 6" Wave.

This line would be a dream come true. If i had to have one crew come in and rescue me, I prefer Dutch's Crew over the Marines any day of the week.

I believe it's still up in the air like a bunch of psychadelic hot air balloons.

To be honest, i don't even know if NECA knows.

the question has been asked multiple times and there has been NO concrete answer...SUCKS FOR COLLECTORS...I really looking forward to this figure...like many others

Got mine pre-ordered at Bigbadtoystore. I don't know if it'll come out but if it does I need to be down for one ahead of time.

Hasn't the BD 12" been delayed to work on adding the electronics?

I know Kyle commented that they were unhappy with the production quality they've been getting so far.

Despite HT picking up the license, they're two separate markets so I don't see anything other than production or NECA's sales numbers affecting the choice to put it out.

I was so hoping HT would see out the whole team but with no further announcements and all the hype being about T2, 300, avatar etc for 2010 I can't see it happening now.

However I'd love to see them at 7" too. I assume Sonny landham would again refuse his likeness but who knows about the others. Richard Chaves told one member here (Nicky, I think) that he'd love to own a figure of himself and that he would consent to it if asked.

At the very least it'd be nice to see one or more Dutch Schaeffer figures - a 3rd Arnie character produced by NECA (Conan and T-800 being the others).

Carl Weathers is very picky about his likeness, JAKKS put out an Apollo Creed figure with a great likeness, apparently never running it by him and he forced them to alter the sculpt on all future production runs of that figure and any other figure. The new one was fairly close but I have the original and the redo and the original was spot on.

Unfortunate that one guy who would grant rights to his likeness is probably tied with Shane Black's Hawkins as the character either HT or NECA would be most hesitant to make from the P1 special forces team.

I too would like to see more photos, that one shot, I couldn't tell you if that was a 12" or the 7", don't see anything about it suggesting the better quality you get with the larger scale.
