Hot Toys T-800 Sneak Peek

Today being boxing day, here's a sneak peek at Hot Toys next Movie Masterpiece Series 12-inch figure from the Terminator line - Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator Model T-800 from "Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)", armed with his sawed-off Winchester 1887 shotgun hidden inside a box full of roses as he walks through the mall looking for a young John Connor. This became known as the iconic "Rosebox Shotgun" with a sawed off barrel and stock and the trigger guard cut out.

The head sculpt looks amazing! Hot Toys had already released an Arnold Schwarzenegger head sculpt when they released the Hot Toys MMS72 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6 scale 12-inch collector's edition Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer with Arnold Schwarzenegger's likeness (see the full review HERE).

What everyone is really excited about is the extra forearm with skin and outer flesh cut off, exposing the T-800's cybernetic arm and hand. This was the scene where the T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) made large cuts in its arm and removed the skin to reveal his bloody endoskeletal metal arm and hand to Doctor Miles Bennett Dyson, the original inventor (and cybernetics scientist) of the neural-net processor which would lead to the development of Skynet.

I'd already done a full review of another 1/6 scale 12-inch Terminator T-800 figure released by Popsalute HERE but it looks like Hot Toys' version is miles better Ha! Ha!

Alex, will Hot Toys use the previous head sculpts done for "Dutch" in predator and repaint it?

Harold said...

Thanks for the heads up on this, I absolutely can't wait for the arrival of this figure!

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

hey desmond, I doubt it as Predator Arnie is more "botak" compared to T-800 Arnie. I believe Hot Toys will do a new head sculpt since they already have the likeness quite spot on already :>

hi harold, u r most welcome. many of us are all keenly awaiting its release. CHEERS!
