Welcome to The Stormtrooper Effect

This is where i will review and discuss toys, video games and movies. I collect 3 3/4 inch to 12 inch Star Wars, Iron Man, Batman, Halo toys and other movie memoribillia that appeal to me! As of late i am into Hot Toys 12' inch figures. Thank you for visiting my page and I hope you enjoy browsing through my site as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!

Hot Toys Terminator Salvation T-700 Endoskeleton

Finally got around opening this figure and taking him out.

as you can see, Hot Toys has changed its standard use of cardboard boxes to house figures and went for a stylised styrofoam instead. For the whole rough metallic look. Aesthetically pleasing though i must say it would be a pain to upkeep in the long run.
Front Design on styrofoam. Reminiscent of the endo's chest plate.
and the back, that of the spinal column.
Incredible detailing and shoulder plates which can be opened to peer into the wires and intricate servos/hydrolics

The endo with its diorama stand.

Picked up my predator last week and will feature it up soon, when i do take it out of the box.

congrats on the cool score, hope you're having as much fun with it as I did with T-800. Salvation's going to be a very expensive line to collect based on the figure line up.

I envy the lot of you who have the 'budget' to collect this line.. :)

I was just thinkin of getting John Connor, perhaps the variant version. Heheh....I've been hearin a lot of grumblin from collectors, HT milking collectors dry and all...IMHO thats just bad move on their part. What an impression collectors have on 'em now?

outstanding. You even use the wallpaper behind. :)

@ Shaun - thanks bro!! yeah really thankful that i managed to score an endoskeleton, since the t-800 was from a time before i started 1/6th collecting..salvation was an opportunity to get me a terminator..

and yeah salvation's gonna be a huge line, something Hot Toys hasn't done before...7 in one line so far.

t600 Martin laignh signature
t600 rubber skinned version
John Connor
John connor infiltration suit
marcus wright

gotta pick from the line wisely..

@ THE REBEL - yeah, the 2nd john connor is more generic and also will be cloth not pvc costume..Hence will last longer in the long run... and i agree HT has been milking this licence dry...

@ Leon - Thx bro!!! =D
