There is no other best time to blog about this figure but now! Emotions are still running wild having watched Terminator: Dark Fate 2019. Thank you James Cameron for bringing back Terminator. Especially the comeback of original casts Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) and Arnold Schwarzengger (Terminator T800).
This latest instalment ignores other Terminator movies after 'Terminator 2'. It follows Terminator saga with only James Cameron involvement. I love the theme sound of Terminator and it surprises me to learn that T800 can develop consciousness with time. A bit of sadness when hearing Arnold said: "I won't be back". He even turned down his iconic shades and leather jacket. Enough of my thoughts and move on to the figure.
The Terminator T800 Endoskeleton figure by ReAction seriously brought back nostalgia. This is how the toy would look like if it is produced in the 80s. Arnold Schwarzengger (Terminator T800) on the cover of the card stands out even though the details of 3.75" T800 Endoskeleton figure is lackluster. The back of the card shows a total of 5 figures in the toy-line. They look like fake but trust me, Funko X Super7 really released all 5 of them, plus other movie figures. Continue to give me that feeling of owning a retro figure in excellent MOC condition (unpunched card).
Bro, this carded figure has to be kept in mint condition and display it on the wall.
I’m currently keeping it in ziplock bag. Hopefully the condition last.
I’m eager to watch this movie so I hope no more details on it are leaked, in order to enjoy it more!... This figure and the card that contains it have all the "flavor" of toys made in the 80’s, as you rightly pointed out and that’s a great success, even the "Reaction" logotype was clearly inspired by the one of Kenner (a brand that was acquired by Hasbro and currently is extinct, as far as I know)!...
Apologies for the spoiler. Do support the movie and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do. Thank you for pointing out the close resemblance between ReAction & Kenner logo.
another classic toys with poor articulation and not so great design if compared to today's version but back then in the 80's and 90's you would be very happy to have them as a kid especially after you watched the film...
Yup. I believed the poor articulations are purposely done for the retro look and to lower the cost of production.
