Under the Skin of Sideshow’s T-800 Terminator Battle Damaged Premium Format FigureDecember 22, 2014
The iconic time-traveling cyborg is back with the release of the Sideshow Collectibles T-800 Terminator Battle Damaged Premium Format Figure. Inspired by the leather-clad assassin-turned-protector from the perennial science fiction favorite, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sideshows creation is as striking as it is meticulously detailed.
The sculpture and painted finish of Sideshows phenomenally detailed T-800 Terminator Battle Damaged Premium Format Figure are immediately jaw dropping. Attention grabbing features include the gruesomely realistic mangled physique, exposed metal-like endoskeleton, and the distinctive build and portrait of actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Dynamically posed atop its (2.5-inch) faux-steel base, the towering 18-inch statue is an extraordinary screen accurate depiction of the broken and battered T-800 after the climactic encounter with the “mimetic poly-alloy” T-1000 in Judgment Day. In addition, the Sideshow Exclusive version includes a 5.5-inch sculpt of the moribund T-800’s right hand sinking into molten metal with a final thumbs-up as a movie inspired extra.
Beyond the sculpture, the costume and trappings of Sideshows T-800 Terminator Battle Damaged Premium Format Figure have been crafted with a level of fidelity that fans and statue aficionados are certain to savor. From the imitation leather biker garb (with all the miniature zipper, straps, and buckles in place) and removable bandolier to the (nearly 7.5-inch) busted M-79 grenade launcher molded into the right hand, Sideshows painstaking effort is likely to appease even the staunchest Terminator devotee.
The Sideshow Collectibles T-800 Terminator Battle Damaged Premium Format Figure began reaching the hands of eager collectors in early fall at the list price of $379.99 USD. Whether enjoyed by casual admirers or ardent science fiction buffs, the remarkable statue is a delectable museum quality archetype that should make for a stirring centerpiece in the collection of any 90s pop culture fan.
