After we had our first child, my wife and I basically stopped going to the movies. Hence we have missed great shows like Transformers, Watchmen, UP and Terminator: Salvation...just to name a few. Even though I missed Terminator: Salvation, I was still drawn to Hot Toys T-600. They even had 4 versions of the T-600!
Hot Toys has set an extremely high standard for the 12" market and whenever they launch a figure we come to expect the best from them. Since we are all accustomed to how great Hot Toys figures are, I would like to nit pick on some negatives instead...:)
Hot Toys usually do fantastic packaging but for the Terminator:Salvation series, the Styrofoam packaging just does not work for me. I guess it was supposed to look like a metal box but to me it just looks like a grey colored Styrofoam box.
Another area which I can nit pick is the painting around its mouth. It seems to be of a different color as compared to the rest of the head. I am not sure if it is supposed to be like that in the movie but it looks kinda funny to me.
Well...that's all the faults I can find.
Now on to the good things about this figure. Basically, this is a solid figure with good sculpt and painting. It is pretty huge and together with its stand, it easily towers over all your 12" figures.
The T-600 comes with a gatling gun, ammo backpack and a bullet belt. I just love the sculpting and details on the gatling gun and the ammo backpack!
Overall a very nice & solid figure to have. It really captures your attention especially when on display. Every time I walk pass my display cabinet, I tend to turn and look at it. Because of this figure, I am also tempted to get the T-700.
