Hot Toys "T-800" in Terminator 2 Pt.2

This is Schwarzenegger's iconic look (with his shades on) as T-800 in "Terminator 2". The grey colour T-shirt fits pretty well to the newly developed rubber upper body. The leather-like belt with buckle works great too.

The stitching and weathering work on the leather outfit are excellent. The leather outfit is also tailored to fit the figure and all zippers here are produced in 1/6 scale. Hot Toys also uses thin velcro to fasten the leather pants.

I have no doubt the overall appearance of the figure is very screen accurate.

The shotgun can be hidden inside the box of roses which I didn't show it in the photos.

Hot Toys has been delivering great texturing work on the skin in its recent figures and this one is no exception especially to the head and upper body. There are 2 sets of skinned hands for you to change and all of them work well with the weapons and accessories.

You have to lift the figure head up whenever turning it as to avoid damaging the skin surface of the neck. The shades also fit perfectly to the head and you can remove it easily.

Here are some photos taken on the T-800 that fires the shotgun.

The articulation of the muscled body has some restriction and both elbow joints allow only 90 degree bend. All the joints are fairly tight for the figure to hold some basic poses.

Really took a lot of photos on this figure as it looks fantastic. Just can't take my eyes off it. For box package, please click here.

Dennis, thanks for your compliments and the head sculpt definitely has a perfect likeness of Arnold. A great figure to have in my collection :)

I love the likeness of Arnold for this toy.

Yes Leon, this is the best head sculpt with likeness of Arnold so far and absolutely better than the previous release "Dutch".
