David Jefferis reports: Hot Toys has revealed the latest Arnold Schwarzenegger figure in its 1:6 scale collection, a battle-damaged T-800 from The Terminator a movie that’s been around for a near-unbelievable 30 years.
The 1:6 scale Hot Toys Battle Damaged T-800 comes with two different heads, one of them more damaged than the other, allowing you to see parts of the metallic endoskelton, and the famed glowing red eye.
There’s also a leather jacket, a range of guns, different hand positions and, of course, Arnie’s trademark ultra-dark sunglasses. However (and it’s something of a pity for this reviewer) there’s no built-in trigger and sound system for the figure to say those immortal words, “I’ll be back.”
The 1:6 scale Black Widow comes with a different of hand positions, a range of fists, and the Widow’s preferred choice of weapon, a pair of hand guns.
Hot Toys Limited is a Hong Kong-based outfit that designs, develops, and makes highly detailed collectibles. Established in 2000, Hot Toys began by producing 1:6 scale US military action figures before moving to high-end figures under the Movie Masterpiece Series brand.
Hot Toys’ creative team is led by sculptor Yulli, and painter JC Hong.
In 2010, the company's Toy Hunters store was declared one of the 50 best independent shops in Hong Kong. So now you know.
Great figures, if somewhat pricey. However, if you like movies and movie merchandise, then a look at the Hot Toys lineup is a collector’s essential must-do item.
