In Terminator Genisys Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as an unstoppable cyborg killing machine sent back in time from the year 2029, only this time not to terminate Sarah Connor, but to protect her from Skynet. The movie serves as a soft reboot and incorporates scenes from the Terminator into the film and changes the story considerably, it also features an extended future war battle where we see John Connor defeat Skynet.   

Name: Endoskeleton
Line: Movie Masterpiece Series
Product Code: MMS352
Manufacturer: Hot Toys
Released: 2017
Price: $230 – $250 USD
Scale: 1/6
Accessories: Endo Rifle as well as a display stand

Being the big Terminator fan that I am, you think that I would have had this figure on pre-order from day one. Well, I keep my pre order list pretty small these days as there are always plenty of options to buy Hot Toys figures from, once released.

This particular figure was released last week in Hong Kong and I wanted to get it into my hands asap. So I paid for one as “fast stock” ordered mid week, last week and It’s Monday here in Australia and the figure showed up at 9:30 am at my house, so it was definitely fast stock.

And just for the record I did add a small amount of paint wash to the Endoskeleton’s teeth to make them stand out just a little bit better and obviously , the figure does not come with a phased plasma rifle, I used a spare one from Hot Toys original Terminator Endoskeleton release.

 

LIST OF PARTS

Inside the box you get the following items:

One Endoskeleton figure
One Endo Rifle
Six interchangeable hands
One display stand

SCULPTING

This was the make or break part of this particular figure, just how close to what was seen on screen was this figure going to get? I think Hot Toys have done a pretty good job of getting the Endoskeleton to match how they appear in Terminator Genisys. It’s got plenty of hoses, tubing and piston and all other manner of small details.

I do have one complaint however, the Endoskeleton appears just way too tall, it really needs to be at least one inch shorter then the height it is at. It towers over all my other Terminator figures and that makes it look just a bit too silly.
If we are comparing it to the original Endoskeleton release, then it’s definitely an improvement, but not without fault.

The light up feature is hidden well, pretty much the same as the 1/4 scale Endoskeleton, as you can see in the photos the eyes work just fine, no issues there.

PAINT

As usual Hot Toys do a great job with their paint application, it really looks like the Endoskeleton has been chromed and then roughed up from time out on the battlefield. It’s a very shiny and metallic finish, which suits the Endoskeleton just fine and I really like the little bits of wear all over the figure.

The B.F.G

ARTICULATION

The Endoskeleton has a lot of articulation, hopefully, I don’t’ miss anything: ball-jointed head, swivel/hinge shoulders, hinge elbows, ball-jointed wrists, ab-crunch, twisting waist, limited ball-jointed hips, hinge knees and ankle pivot.

Some of the articulation is hindered by hoses and tubes as well as just by the design of the Endoskeleton, but you’ve still able to get the figure in a number of poses without too much trouble. You aren’t going to be getting anything too extreme out of this figure, but plenty of Terminator style poses aren’t beyond this figure. The joints were nice and stiff, he was a joy to pose for the photos.

OUTFIT

Well, it’s an Endoskeleton, so there’s no outfit to speak of.

ACCESSORIES

You get one “Endorifle” or more appropriately, a BFG and six interchangeable hands, being: one pair of fists, one pair of relaxed hands and a pair of weapon holding hands.

I really like Hot Toys decision to just make separate hands instead of one pair of posable ones, not only do they look nicer, but, are more proportional too. The Endorifle is huge! and unfortunately, it’s a bit hard to get the Endoskeleton to not only hold it properly, but stand up while holding it too. I really didn’t enjoy fiddling with the Endo trying to get it to work, it was quite frustrating.

He looks much better with the spare Phase Plasma rifle I had, just waiting to put in his hands! The display stand we’ve seen before and apparently doesn’t light up, I didn’t even bother checking this out as I really don’t care for this type of oversized display base anyway, I’m sticking with the classic oval display stand.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

One of the main problems I can already see happening, is potentially breaking the ball-joints on the hands of the figure, there is three of them and they are quite small and even although don’t seem brittle, I’d still be very careful when changing over hands.

For the tubes that connect to those small ball-joints, you get spare ones, so maybe you could loose them if you weren’t careful either I suppose? I can’t really see any other problems you could have with the figure, other than trying to put it into poses it’s not meant to be put into, so in other words, read those instructions!

PRICE

I bought fast stock, hence I paid a fast stock price. I was happy with that, as I wanted this figure asap. Now that it’s here, im very happy with it. But, if your not in now rush, I’m sure it can be picked up for a more reasonable price in a month or so.

Funnily enough, The price I paid was only a little more over my local distributors “retail” price so, it wasn’t that expensive after all.

OVERALL

This Endoskeleton isn’t perfect, (mainly just the overly tall height and ridiculously over-sized weapon) but it’s definitely head and shoulders above the old MMS release from way back when, I think it’s even a little better than the 1/4 scale one, but are talking about from an engineering point of view only.

They both have their differences, but are still both great in their own way. Hot Toys design and engineering have improved greatly over the years and this new Endoskeleton is proof of that. Worth picking up to upgrade, but, it would be great of Hot Toys could release the classic Endoskeleton at some point in 1/6 too.

Drax is played by Dave Bautista in the 2014 live-action movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.  Drax’s family was murdered by Ronan the Accuser, acting on the instructions of Thanos. Drax has vowed revenge on not only Ronan but Thanos too. Drax made his first comic book appearance in 1973.

 

Name: Drax (the Destroyer)
Line: Movie Masterpiece Series
Product Code: MMS355
Manufacturer: Hot Toys
Released: 2017
Price: $200 USD – $220 USD
Scale: 1/6
Accessories: Various accessories and display stand.

After what seems like forever, Drax is finally here to complete the original Guardians of the Galaxy team, for a long time, it seemed like Hot Toys weren’t going to release him, or there were rumours of him being cancelled etc. But, the waiting has finally paid off and he is now here and ready to be reviewed! But Drax’s release is still not without controversy as many of Hot Toys fans have still found plenty of things to nit-pick about, some warranted, some not. I’ll try my best to cover all the issues and more in my review.

LIST OF PARTS

Inside the box you get the following items:

One Drax figure
Seven Interchangeable hands
One rocket launcher
Two blades
One pair of red Ravagers pants
One figure display stand

 

SCULPTING

This was another one of those figures where fans were very vocal about the likeness or lack of likeness if you will or even lack of emotion in the sculpt too. I feel most these complaints are a bit of a bridge too far, as it looks just like Dave Bautista and it looks just like Dave Bautista dressed as Drax. Think, however, with the expression, the complaints are justified as he does need just a hint of emotion in his brow or mouth.

The main problem is, Drax’s character was a bit blunt and emotionless at first and opened up a bit over the course of the movie. With that in mind, I think the head sculpt works well, but it doesn’t work too well for action poses. It would be nice if Hot Toys at least changed the head a little bit for the figure from the next movie, but either way, I’m still happy with it.

The body is the other big talking point for this figure. I wouldn’t say they have started from scratch 100% but the chest is definitely new, but the proportions are a bit off, his pectoral muscles are a bit elongated when compared to photos and even his torso in general.

I don’t know if the arms need to be made bigger, but maybe a little more definition in the biceps would be nice and at least some sort of lat muscle would have helped the overall look of the torso immensely. Needless to say, the detailing on the tattoos is outstanding and  looks very cool, in person.

PAINT

Hot Toys have done a pretty outstanding job with the paint application on this one. The intricacy of the tattoos made it a real challenge to mass-produce this figure with consistent results. With that in mind, I feel Hot Toys have produced this figure as flawlessly as they could. It’s definitely that high level of quality everyone has come to know and love.

A number of people weren’t happy with the skin colour of Drax, claiming he was too gray and not green enough. Well, there’s a video on Youtube, that show’s Dave Bautista having the Drax makeup applied and in that more natural lighting, it looks just as grey as the figure. So, no complaints from me, it looks great, it looks realistic and it matches the source material in my eyes.

ARTICULATION

Drax has the following articulation: Ball jointed neck, swivel/hinge shoulders, elbows, and wrists. Ball jointed waist, swivel/hinge hips, double jointed knees and ball jointed ankles. It’s a little less than the normal Hot Toys figure would have and that’s due to the torso having a lot less articulation than you would normally expect, Hot Toys sacrificed articulation for looks this time round.

I’m pretty happy overall with Drax’s articulation, I could get him in enough poses, I felt looked good once photographed. I did find the arms a little lacking more than I would have liked and even the torso a bit too and while we are at it, the hips are a bit restricted by his pants and underwear as well.

Even with all these limitations, I still enjoyed posing Drax quite a lot, it made it more of a challenge for me and I’m pretty happy with the results. For my display, he’s going to be in a museum pose, so I’m happy. I tried to push Drax’s articulation as much as I could for the photos and even with the trade-off in joints I’m still happy with the posing potential you have with Drax, you just might need to be a bit creative.

OUTFIT

It’s not very often these days you get too many extra items of clothing with standard release Hot Toys figures, IMO. So, it’s nice Hot Toys included an extra pair of pants to go with Drax, so you can have some choice. Both pants fit quite snug and look excellent.

The best part of the outfit for me, is Drax’s boots they are not only quite detailed, but very chunky as well with the right amount of articulation at the ankles, more so the joint is quite stiff and couple that with the large size of the boot, makes Drax very steady on his feet and during the photo shoot, I never felt like he was going to fall over on me.

Technically, he also has a pair of black padded underwear to fill out his lower body and thighs a bit better, it’s a nice touch but can make it slightly difficult when changing over pants.

 

ACCESSORIES

Drax comes with decent amount of accessories, Hot Toys pretty much gave him everything they could from the movie, outside of prison pants. If they had done that, that would have definitely been going above and beyond in my eyes.

With that said, in some fans eyes, the price of the figure isn’t justified with the amount of accessories included. But, I feel that’s a bit of an unrealistic view, considering other factors that we the fans aren’t privy to.

All the accessories are up to the usual high standard and look and feel great, the rocket launcher is pretty cool, but the blades are what I’ll be displaying my Drax figure with and they are about perfect. The extra hands are great too and all appropriate for the type of poses you would want to put Drax in.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

With most Hot Toys figures there are always things to watch out for and Drax is no different. Firstly, there’s potentially paint rub if you handle or pose the figure too much, like on the neck, when moving the head, secondarily, you have to watch out for those wrist pegs as well, you don’t want to break one of them if you can avoid it. That goes double for any stiff joints like his arms or shoulders too.

Most of these potential problems can be avoided by reading the instructions and having plenty of experience with Hot Toys figures in the first place. But, even I never skip having a quick read through the included instructions, just in case.

PRICE

I paid about $205 USD from Animarket and as usual, I was not only happy with the price but their customer service as well. I’m going to assume he’s somewhat popular now he’s released, but everyone selling him for a ridiculous price will most likely have trouble moving him. My best advice would be to shop around and don’t always rely on eBay as your source of figures.

OVERALL

Drax is a pretty great figure, however, he isn’t without a few flaws, mainly in the articulation department. However, I think it’s still an excellent effort by Hot Toys and he’s going to be gladly added to my Guardians of the Galaxy display to join the rest of the team. I feel the wait for him was worth it and I’m very happy with him now I have him.

Marvel Studios smash hit Avengers: Age Of Ultron was the next big adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, by not only introducing us to Ultron but bringing us a number of new characters too. The Iron Legion being one of them. The Iron Legion are a number of Iron Man Armours controlled by J.A.R.V.I.S, whose main role is to guard and protect civilians during battles involving the Avengers in populated areas.

 

Name: Iron Legion
Line: Movie Masterpiece Series
Product Code: MMS299
Manufacturer: Hot Toys
Released: 2016
Price: $123 USD – $185 USD
Scale: 1/6
Accessories: Various accessories and figure display stand.

 

Truth be told, I didn’t buy this figure for myself. I was actually a birthday present for my Dad that I went halves in with my brother. But after seeing it in hand I still felt the need to review it, so I borrowed it for a quick photo shoot. I think my Dad and brother are the bigger Iron Man fans in the family, but that doesn’t mean I can’t also enjoy their purchases too from time to time or review them from time to time either.

 

 

LIST OF PARTS

Inside the box you get the following items:

One Iron Legion figure
One pair of interchangeable rocket forearms
One pair of hands with articulated figures
One pair of battle hands (to be used with the light-up feature)
One figure display stand

 

 

SCULPTING

The figure is beautifully sculpted with plenty of smooth surfaces, small details and looks quite screen accurate to me. Not having to have to worry about having a human inside, it’s a little bit sleeker than you standard Iron Man figure, it’s also made of plastic and is therefore quite light too.

PAINT

I’m very impressed with the paint application on the Iron Legion, as expected it’s almost flawless even the wear and tear scratches all over the armour look great! All the detailing and logos are nice and crisp too. On a side note, I really love the colour design of this armour, it really pops in my opinion.

ARTICULATION

The Iron Legion has a lot of articulation, so hopefully, I don’t miss anything; you have a ball jointed head, neck, shoulders, hands, and hips. Hinge arms and double hinged knees what appear to be rocker ankles and a slight ab-crunch as well as hinged toes. All in all, you have an outstanding amount of articulation and it doesn’t ruin the sculpt at all either. No complaints from me, as I could get the figure in the poses I wanted with little-to-no trouble at all. I’d say Hot Toys have the articulation for Iron Man figures down to a fine art by this stage.

LIGHT-UP FEATURE

I didn’t have any issues with the Iron Legion figures head, chest and hands light up features, but Hot Toys have always had a bit of a dodgy track record when it comes to the electronic components of their figures. But, then again, it’s not like you are going to leave the lights turned on all the time. It’s just there as a nice addition to the figure after all.

 

ACCESSORIES

Not a lot of accessories come with the Iron Legion, unfortunately. The two interchangeable rocket forearms are nice and the two types of hand choice are also good. I just wish perhaps we got a pair of fist hands to go with the other two pairs, that would be pretty neat. I enjoyed using the articulated hands the most and you can get a number of expressive poses with them.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

I don’t think there are too many things to watch out for, perhaps check the figure over for any possible missing parts (it does happen after all). Otherwise, as far as Iron Man figures go, this is pretty sturdy and I would like to think somewhat durable too and as always make sure you read the instructions, so you know the posing limitations.

PRICE

I paid quite a cheap price for this figure as I went halves with my brother in it as it was going to be a birthday gift for my father, but you can normally pick him up for what I’ve seen as quite decent prices, Mint in sealed box.

OVERALL

My only real complaint with this figure is that it is not an essential character/figure to have in your collection or display, it holds true to the expected fine level of craftsmanship that you have come to expect from Hot Toys, I just don’t think there’ll ever be a big demand for this guy after the Iron Man fans and Marvel completists  have bought one for themselves, hence why he’s still readily available atm. It’s still a great figure in its own right, it’s just a shame it might not get as much attention as it should deserve. Also, the lack of accessories by Hot Toys is a tiny bit of a letdown, but there was always only so much they could have included anyway.

The Imperial Stormtrooper is one of the most iconic and distinctive movie soldier designs ever, which is instantly recognizable to even non-fans of Star Wars. The elite soldier us the main ground force of the Galactic Empire and an ever-present reminder of the power of Emperor Palpatine. 


Name: Stormtrooper
Line: Movie Masterpiece Series
Product Code: MMS267
Manufacturer: Hot Toys
Released: 2015
Price: $190.99 – 199.99 USD
Scale: 1/6
Accessories: Various hands and weapons.

I initially wasn’t going to buy this particular figure, don’t get me wrong, I do love me some Stormtrooper figure goodness, but, 1/6 scale figures do take up more space than their smaller action figure counterparts.

However, as luck (or fate) would have it, I happened to be picking up some orders from a friend, who just received the two pack set among some other goodies. After watching him unbox them, I knew then and there, I must have them!  They just oozed quality, it was plain for me to see even with them sitting in the box, these were lovingly made figures.

So, I went home and did just that, ordered at least one figure for myself. Self-control be damned! ( Thanks, Ev! Damn it all! Haha)

LIST OF PARTS

Inside the box you get the following items:

One Stormtrooper figure
Seven interchangeable hands
One blaster rifle
One blaster pistol
One display stand

SCULPTING

As far as sculpting goes, this figure is excellent. I would never consider myself an expert when it comes to Stormtrooper helmets but, in my eyes, this is the best version made in 1/6 scale to date, it looks like Hot Toys used the “hero version” of the helmet for their reference material too as it matches that version the best. Everything is just the right size and shape. All the armour fits nice and snug on the body, it’s really like it walked off the screen and into your hands.

PAINT

Well, we all know by now that Hot Toys do an excellent job with their paint application; and this particular figure is no exception. The paint on this figure is mainly small details on the helmet and chest armour. As per usual, it’s nice and neat. I really love the gloss finish on the armour, it makes it look and feel amazing in hand.

ARTICULATION

The Stormtrooper presumably has the standard amount of articulation that the normal True Type body would have, being: Ball jointed neck, swivel/hinge shoulders, double jointed elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, ball jointed chest, swivel waist, swivel/hinge hips, double jointed knees and ball jointed ankles,

Now, the outfit can restrict this articulation a little bit, especially around the shoulders and crotch. Otherwise, you can get him into plenty of Stormtrooper type poses with little-to-no difficulty, in most cases the “standing to attention, museum pose” works best and looks so damn cool.

OUTFIT

Technically, the whole figure is the outfit, I’ve already raved about the armour, the black body suit underneath is fine, it’s stretchy, well tailored and doesn’t restrict the joints.

ACCESSORIES

Just a small amount of accessories with this figure, something that’s really becoming the norm for Hot Toys releases as many fans and reviewers alike have made mention of.

You get a number of hands in different poses and two types of blasters, the standard one we all know and love and one only seen in promo shots, so Hot Toys attention to detail is pretty good in this instance.

I like the variety of hands they are all pretty useful to get a good variety of different poses and expressiveness out of the Stormtrooper.

Lastly, you get what I’ll call the “standard Star Wars base” with the figure, I’m not a fan of it, it’s the classic black display stand for me.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

Not really too many things to watch out for, perhaps the odd factory paint blemish? Perhaps the pleather holster tearing or deteriorating over time? The quality in this particular figure is top notch.

PRICE

I paid about $190 USD plus shipping from Animarket, and I was happy with that, he’s a little bit more expensive on the secondary market these days, but if you can find a deal, more power to you!

OVERALL

If you want that classic Stormtrooper in 1/6 scale, then this is the figure to get, it’s simply put, the best 1/6 Stormtrooper to date and puts all other attempts to shame. I’m pretty sure if you are a Star Wars, Stormtrooper and Hot Toys fan, you already have this figure and you know what I’m talking about; if you still haven’t scratched that Stormtrooper itch then what are you waiting for? Buy this figure! It’s that simple.

In The Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger is an unstoppable cyborg killing machine sent back in time from the year 2029 by the artificial intelligence network, Skynet to terminate Sarah Connor, the woman who will give birth to the future’s Resistance movement leader, John Connor.
The original terminator movie was released in 1984 and is considered one of the best sci-fi films ever made, It featured terrific action sequences, a well-written story, and incredible special effects for its time.

 

Name: T-800 Endoskeleton
Line: Quarter Scale Series
Product Code: QS002
Manufacturer: Hot Toys
Released: 2013
Price: Then: $399.99 USD, Now: $570 – $730 USD
Scale: 1/4
Accessories: Plasma Rifle as well as a display stand

You’d think being a Terminator fan I would have bought this figure the day it was released, well I didn’t, main reason being, where was I going to put this beast? I had seen my friend’s Enterbay Battle Damaged T2 T-800, and was obviously impressed with the sheer size and amount of detail on the figure. (Not really impressed by Enterbay’s choice of materials or their ‘hit and miss’ factory paint application.)

So at this point the thought of potentially owning the Hot Toys 1/4 scale Terminator Endoskeleton was in the back of my mind, I did come very close to picking it up the year before when I was in Japan as the price was still very good and brand new in box, I couldn’t complain. But alas, I had no space in my suitcase by this point and nowhere to put it.

However, the year after I was better prepared for such a potential purchase. Two suitcases devoted to mainly toy purchases, you can’t go wrong! ( I ended up sandwiching The Endoskeleton box with Hot Toys Godfather’s box in the one suitcase, another great deal on that one too!)

So finally I had this figure in my collection, but I still have no way to display it properly, so it just sits in its box for now. This review was the first time I was able to take the figure out and have a good and proper look at it and a good play around. Which probably worked out better that way as it makes it almost like I bought it brand new and hadn’t opened it before. Still, that sense of wonderment and excitement you get from your first couple of Hot Toys’ figures was definitely there as I removed this figure from the box, it’s easily one of Hot Toys best figures they’ve released so far!

LIST OF PARTS

Inside the box you get the following items:

One 1/4 T-800 Endoskeleton figure
One Plasma Rifle
One display stand

SCULPTING

One of the best aspects of 1/4 Scale figures is the amount of extra detail that is applied to each figure, being much larger in size you can really take in the subtle skin texture on a figure, for example. But, this review is about the Terminator Endoskeleton. The extra detail you get to appreciate here is all the tubing, pistons and other mechanical like details of the Endoskeleton design in general, and boy is it detailed!

This is easily one of the best versions of the Endoskeleton in any scale and unlike Sideshow’s statues, for example, they haven’t given it funny looking teeth.

This figure just oozes awesomeness! The only very minor nitpick is that on the neck, there’s a very obvious mold line in the middle at the front. But, besides that, the sculpting is great!

PAINT

I’m going to assume the Endoskeleton parts have all be chromed or vacuum metalized, however, this isn’t some shiny ‘fresh off the production line’ T-800, this one has been out in the battlefield for a bit and has a fair amount of wear on the surface of that chrome. The overall effect is quite nice. But, it’s that shininess that sets the figure apart from other Hot Toys releases of Endoskeletons and makes it really stand out.

ARTICULATION

I don’t know if I even want to try and work out just how much articulation this figure has! But there sure is a decent amount and a lot of it well thought out and also well hidden, that it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb either. Being a mechanical looking skeleton, it’s quite easy to hide some joints and other joints, obviously being just part of the design.

Things like the neck and hips are restricted a bit by the pistons and hoses, but overall he’s very poseable. You can at least get him in all the Terminator type poses you would want, and without the aid of the display stand as seen in the photos, but, I wouldn’t recommend leaving him displayed without the stand, however! The last thing you want is this expensive big figure taking a tumble!

OUTFIT

Well, it’s an Endoskeleton, so there’s no outfit to speak of.

ACCESSORIES

You get one Plasma Rifle and that’s about it. If you bought the Special Edition version of this figure, then you got two Plasma Rifles, which would be pretty sweet. But, one is enough for me.

As expected, the usual focus on detail and craftsmanship is ever present here. I was impressed back in the day with the 1/6 scale version of the Plasma Rifle that came with the original 1/6 scale Endoskeleton, But the larger scale means more detail and the ability to appreciate that detail more so as the scale is increased.

I can’t fault the rifle, with the exception of perhaps the colour as movie stills and some props lead me to believe the rifle is silver and black, but I actually prefer the all black/grey/gun metal grey colour, I think it makes the rifle look that much nicer in hand.

The other accessory is the display stand, I really don’t like the look of it, I think it looks quite boring and lame actually, I would have preferred some kind of simple black cover as an option and be able to swap out between the two. But, the paint and sculpting on the base aren’t up to the high standards of the Endoskeleton itself and that’s a little disappointing.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

The only real problem I can think of is, that I reckon the arm and/or ankle joints might loosen up over time, especially the arm or arms holding the Plasma Rifle, even if it isn’t that heavy, those arms look like they would have trouble over time. Other than that, finding space for the damn thing!

I’m not devoting a whole shelf in my cabinet just for the terminator, but if I were to get one of those large acrylic boxes, I’d have found my solution to the problem, so alas, the Endoskeleton stays in its box for now.

PRICE

I was lucky enough to pay around $350 AUD for this guy back in 2014 thanks to the many second-hand toy stores in Tokyo. The plus side to it being second hand is you are encouraged to inspect the item before you pay, so if there are any problems, hopefully, you can spot them!

I was happy with the price and it was my big splurge on that trip as I hadn’t really bought anything notable up to that point of my holiday.

OVERALL

If you are in the market for some 1/4 scale goodness, then you can’t go by this amazing figure from Hot Toys, even though I don’t buy many 1/4 scale figures (This being my only purchase in the scale so far) I needed this guy in my collection at some point, as I am a big Terminator fan and besides 1/1 scale stuff, it doesn’t get and bigger or better then this!

If you can find one for a decent price these days, all the better as the prices only seems to go up for all 1/4 figures, be it Hot Toys or Enterbay. If you are a Terminator fan and have the space and the budget I’m sure you already have this, if you don’t I wouldn’t sit on your hands too much longer as it lives up to the hype. It may have one or two minor nitpicks, however it is still truly an extraordinary figure to have and own!
