Ok, I was actually just going to ignore this, but a couple people have asked me why I havent posted anything about this Hot Toys recent release. Over this last week Hot Toys has announced that they are going to release a new figure based off of Arnold Schwarzenegger's role of the T-800 from James Cameron's 1984 movie, "The Terminator". HT had attempted to do this 5 years prior, but unfortunately due to licensing issues didnt quite achieve what they were hoping for.
Now, there's an issue I have with this. It has nothing to do with the figure itself. Hot Toys did an amazing job with this figure. Perfect realistic realization to Arnold Schwarzenegger just like the T-800 from T2. The problem I have is with the movie itself. Im sorry, and this just my opinion, but I think the first Terminator movie was just terrible. I thought that the visuals, effects, wardrobe, set design, etc. were just so sub-par. The acting was very droll and the characters lacked charisma between each other. Pretty much every character's wardrobe looked like the epitome of the worst fashions of the 80's, as well as the surroundings. The movie looked cheap and very rushed, and its a movie that just does not stand the test of time. In my opinion I feel the only positive to "The Terminator" is that in started the plot to begin the Terminator series. Between "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", the differences are nearly painful. All just in my humble opinion.
Despite all of that, for fans of the original Terminator this figure is definitely a huge blessing. This figure is definitely the highest quality collectible to come from this movie. If you're a fan, I would recommend get this in a heartbeat.
