T-800 | Hot Toys Terminator 2 Judgement Day

1/6 Hot Toys Terminator 2 Judgement Day T-800

1:6 Hot Toys T-800 Endoskeleton was the figure that kicked off my interest in Hot Toys figures. Since scoring it in 2007, I’ve been waiting for the companion piece, T-800 Arnold to take it’s place alongside what is widely regarded as an engineering marvel. Finally T-800 Arnie has arrived.

And it is fitting to start off this review with Arnie stark naked, just as how he made his entrance in T2. I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of this figure when I removed it from the box. As this is a newly developed muscular body specifically for Arnie, I was keen to check out the overall figure’s sculpt. Do note for these series of pix, I replaced the extra long feet pegs with a normal Hot Toys True Type’s feet pegs and feet, as this figure doesn’t come with feet.

Hot Toys have been producing realistic skin textures in their recent figures, (I can recall they started doing so with Wolverine) and they’ve done it here again, mainly on the head and upper body.

Here’s some full on frontal nudity for closer examination of this figure. Granted, the muscular chest area and the elbow joints reduce the articulation range of this figure when compared to normal Hot Toys True Types, but it’s sufficient cos Arnie has no need to achieve extreme poses.

I love how Hot Toys pulled off the head sculpt, doubters be damned. The sculpt, features and skin textures are top notch.

Props to Hot Toys for coming so far with their muscular bodies. This is an earlier Hot Toys muscular body that I have, from the Hot Toys Private Military Contractor ’07 figure, and because the bulk of the body is cast in rubber, it’s articulation is severely limited.

  1. Great pics Shaun! I love the group shot as well….It's unfortunate that I still haven't picked mine up yet. Word is, my reliable seller has accidently sold mine to another 'wait-list' buyer….*sigh*

  7. Thanks Leon, this is one figure that I didn't really look forward to as much as the Marvel and DC licensed figures, but when it hand, it's really amazing.

  11. @chaz: looking forward to your shots sir. Glad that you finally scored him cos you're much more enthusiastic about this figure than me. @my Guru: Thanks for the encouragement my Guru, means alot coming from you. LOL artistic angles? Hardly lah. Have to be a full-time dad cos our Good Lord only gives us this precious time with our children and once we miss out on it, it's gone forever.

  13. i am still undecided to get this figure or not, due to the ball joint articulation on the elbows. i wonder if HT will do a dlx set and give us the mini-gun and a battle damaged head.was the small arm that small ??

  14. I've got one but the shoulder somehow got a awkward design, it doesn't work very well. share with me how it works =D
