T-800 - Pescadero Escape (6-inch Neca)

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year aka Spring Festival aka Lunar New Year to everybody.

With all the hype about 1/6 figures (12-inch), sometimes it is good to be brought down to earth and take a look at the many 6-inch figures around. 6-inch figures are cheap. You give them the benefit of doubt for the slack paintjob and you don't get critical on them unlike 1/6 figures.

The movie, Terminator 2 (T2) is a classic. No doubt about that and T-800 (Pescadero Escape) is a neat figure. Pretty good paintjob. Not much on articulation below the waist but for me, that doesn't matter because as long as it looks like Arnie (T-800). In fact, the Arnie likeness is quite stunning.

Even the the jacket is filled with bullet holes (just like Mark "Gor" aka Brother Mark - Chow Yun-Fat from A Better Tomorrow). There is only one complaint (one which many would missed out). One of the sunglasses' stem does not reach the frame. haha.... Apart from that, this is one good figure. Iconic to say the least.

Still haven't decided on Arnie or Aldo on 1/6 scale. Maybe 1. Maybe neither.

Sometimes I get bored with all those 1/6. Not any ordinary character.

Aldo is good until I see the clean machete. I plan to have Aldo standing next to my Hostel Torturer (the one with a bloody machete). Now probably not.
