Light-up eyes for an Endoskeleton Terminator is a must have feature in today sixth scale world, especially to Hot Toys figures.
Besides having "solid" feel, you can have all the detailing and texturing from this figure.
The overall articulation of the figure is very impressive. All the joints and pistons work very well. The metal-like hands have articulated fingers that allow you to get some great poses. You will have no problem to wrap its fingers around the grip of the Gatling gun.
The shoulder joints allow you to move its arms up, down and sideways easily.
The metal legs have fantastic articulation that allows the figure to stand steadily without the use of display stand.
Due to realistic paint work, it's difficult to differentiate the ammo pack is actually made of hard plastic.
The soft rubber ammo belt fits perfectly into the slot at the top of the ammo pack. While T-600 is carrying the gun, the cloth strap with plastic buckle around the wrist helps in holding the weapon too.
Getting the ammo pack on the back of T-600 is pretty frustrating as I have spent a lot of time in adjusting the four cloth straps that tied to the ammo pack.
Hot Toys has done a great sculpting work on the figure as it looks pretty accurate to the movie.
The light-up eyes are always bright and nice. So far, no problem to the rotation of the head.
The metallic paint work on the T-600 is amazing. Besides rusty effects, some armoured pieces have rough finish. However, certain parts of T-600 are made of metal. For example, those metal springs or hoses connected from the head to the upper torso.
To prevent leaking, I have removed the batteries from the compartment at the back of T-600. Overall, this is a great figure to be displayed on shelf. For box packaging, you may click here to view. For Endoskeleton T-600 in Concept Version and Endoskeleton T-800, you may view here and here.
