Over at CmdStore.com, you can now check out our Terminator Trilogy figure collection from McFarlane (and Neca!)! We’ve got a new series of Terminator 2: Judgment Day figures available and ready to ship!
This is the 3rd series of T-2 figures Mc Farlane has released and features four figures that are sure to please fans of the film who can’t get enough of the variations on both Arnie’s T-800 and the liquid metal monster that is T-1000. Available as a set or as individual figures, each one is about 6 inches tall and features the highly-detailed sculpting and design that are McFarlane’s signature. Take a look!
Now, it’s all well and good to sit back and remember the good old days of Terminator, but it seems that most are not content with what recent years have to offer and are looking for more. Specifically, a recent poll has indicated that fans want to see more Arnold Schwarzenegger! Here’s the story from The Coventry Telegraph:
WITH California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger starring in action movie The Expendables in August and leaving office in January, fans are eagerly anticipating the actor’s return to the big screen.
Among his iconic previous roles was Conan, now being relaunched with Jason Momoa playing the barbarian, and as Major Dutch Schaeffer in 1987’s Predator. A new film in that franchise – Predators, starring Adrien Brody – is out in cinemas today.
To coincide with the release of Predators, MovieTickets.com asked filmgoers which role they would like the original star of Predator to reprise when he leaves office.
More than 30,000 fans weighed in, and 39 percent want to see Arnold, now 62, back at the box office as the Terminator.
The rights to the sci-fi series were bought by Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor for $29.5million in February.
Later that month, Willian Wisher, who scripted the first two films, revealed he had put together story outlines for a fifth and sixth film and had written in Schwarzenegger’s return in the sixth movie.
These are tentative story ideas by Wisher, who was publicising them in the hope of being hired as the screenwriter for future Terminator instalments.
Here are the poll results in full:
