Well, the Terminator always said that he'd be back. If you're in the market for a life-size Terminator Endoskeleton and have a few thousand dollars lying around, there's good news!
Two separate companies have announced plans to release life-size replicas of the iconic cinematic robots this year.
Chronicle Collectibles is taking pre-orders for an officially licensed T-800 Endoskeleton from 2015's Terminator Genisys, which starred Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. The life-size replica is available for $9,999. It will start shipping in the third quarter of 2019, but only to United States addresses.
According to the item listing, "this piece represents the most screen accurate representation ever available to collectors worldwide." The endoskeleton is 78 inches tall and features red LED eyes, a removable brain chip, and fingers and forearms with limited pose-ability.
If that option is too rich for your blood but you'd still like a life-size Terminator of your very own, Sideshow Collectibles, is also accepting pre-orders for a different T-800 endoskeleton. This one is modeled after the T-800 seen in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator and Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. It's available for the relatively low price of $6,999, and will arrive at your door between June and August of this year.
The piece is over 6 feet tall and the endoskeleton stands on a base that's "littered with human skulls and debris." This replica is also holding two giant guns to make it look as imposing as possible.
If it's always been your dream to wow (and possibly terrify) your guests with a life-size Terminator, this could be your best chance, especially if you want one before the still-untitled Terminator 6 hits theaters later this year.
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, the untitled Terminator revival stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes, and Diego Boneta. The film is scheduled for release on November 1, 2019.
