Terminator Salvation is opening this week and I am pretty curious how would the new terminator series turn out to be. As much as I catch the trailer, it do look quite similar with Transformers. As for Batman to be John Connor? Well I will keep that opinion to myself. Honestly I am rather skeptical how the new franchise is going to be. Even the PS3 I read sucks...
I missed the T1 and T2 so much that I re-watch it last week on my DVDs. What happen to T3 you might ask? I kick it out of the movie in my mind as far as I am concern. T3 sucks big time even though Arnold Schwarzenegger made an appearance in it. My all time favorite is none other but Terminator 2: Judgment Day. So here a Toy for it!! *Humming the Terminator tune at background*
"3 billion human lives ended on August 29th, 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare: the war against the machines. The computer which controlled the machines, Skynet, sent two Terminators back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human resistance, John Connor, my son. The first Terminator was programmed to strike at me in the year 1984, before John was born. It failed. The second was set to strike at John himself when he was still a child. As before, the resistance was able to send a lone warrior, a protector for John. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first. "
This is the only T2 figure I managed to owned. It is from Macfarlane Terminator 2 series which I got some years back at Spawn Asia. Did I mention I got it loose? LOL
Personally, this figure successfully capture the coolest of terminator (expressionless) with good details and paint job. As for the likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger, they should do a better. Well I shouldn't complain as this is the only T2 figure I got.
These boots are made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do...but this figure can't even move his legs....
The black leather Jacket with the zippers are always in fashion. Ever wonder where they get the leather?
Next the firearms. I kinda damage this one tho... Maybe I try playing too hard. :P
but the shotgun is mint condition. Just look at the details. See the metal ring?
I prefer him as a Protector rather than a Terminator. Who will not want him as a body guard right? Better to have a friend than an enemy you know. LOL
I like the way he uses the shotgun.
Not to mention he always looking for clothing and vehicle to continue his objective in both T1 and T2.
And one of the classic line in all Terminator series (even in the TV series) is none other but this.
I have yet to owned a exoskeleton of the Terminator T800 yet. Hopefully I can get one affordable one soon.
Since we are at the topic of Terminator, I'm going to share this gift from a close friend of mine when he visited Japan Universal Studio few years back.
The package include 3 key chains and a postcard. My favorite is the T800 skull of course. Since it was a gift from a precious friend, I kept it mint for memory sake. :)
Overall I enjoy most of the Terminator franchise which also includes Fox TV series Terminator, The Sarah Connor chronicles and I hope the new Terminator movie will meet it's mark. Terminator became a pop culture icon that capture most of my growing up imagination. I'm sure it is for you too.
