Hot Toys: Terminator Salvation 1/6th T-700...

Without a doubt, one of Hot Toys best figures. The T-700 from Terminator Salvation was one of the figures released this past year that I simply had to have. Having been skunked on Hot Toys release of the original, silver chrome plated T-800 from the first cycle of Terminator films, the T-700 model is the next closest thing. For me, a muted, almost charred looking finish, gives the 700 model a tougher look- like its either been freshly forged on Cyberdyne's assembly lines, or it's been stalking the irradiated wastes of Post Judgement Day Los Angeles for quite some time. Either way, Stan Winston's Terminator endoskeletons remain a classic science fiction design, up their (IMHO) with H.R. Giger's Aliens, and Ralph McQuarrie's Stormtroopers...

No gatling gun for T-700??

deSMond- Nope, no weapons at all for the T-700. I think that's the one drawback for the figure; it came with no accessories!
