TERMINATOR creator James Cameron says Machines are “a significant threat” in the real world.

Back in 1984, when writer and director James Cameron released his groundbreaking sci-fi thriller “The Terminator” in cinemas around the world, the film was praised for (among other things) its rich and thought-provoking themes in science fiction.

Is there a hidden variant among NECA’S “TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY 3D” T-800 figure line?

A couple of weeks ago, we were contacted by one of our Army of Terminator fans asking if we preferred NECA’s new Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D T-800 Galleria figure with the pink painted lips or skin-tone color lips?  We honestly had no idea what they were talking about, and upon learning more, this fan basically found a packaged T-800 figure with different color lips.  We assumed what this person found was just a painting anomaly, (an error that can happen once in a while among mass produced figures), and never gave it another thought.

BUILDING A TERMINATOR: How Legacy Effects created a 1984 Arnold for “Terminator Genisys”!

When the co-owner of Legacy Effects and a disciple of Stan Winston, John Rosengrant first broke down the story elements of “Terminator Genisys” in the aspect of pratical effect needs, there was a section that caught his eye. It was when the Guardian Terminator and Sarah Connor were lugging around a young, deactivated Arnold T-800 Terminator in a back of an armored car in 1984.  Logic dictated to Rosengrant that the creation of this Terminator corpse would best be accomplished with practical effects, so John and his team took upon the task of building a prosthetic dummy of an 1984 Arnold Schwarzenegger. So how did Legacy effects accomplish such a seemingly insurmountable task?
