Diamond Comic’s Toy Chest has this first look at the upcoming Playmates Toys’ TERMINATOR: SALVATION movie line of action figures.
Recipe for movie success?
Take one of Hollywood’s big name directors, a guy so cool he can get by with just a nickname, McG.
Add a robust hunk of star like Christian Bale, and spice with Moon BloodGood.
Include a favorite franchise brand, such as Terminator, with satisfying chunks of big, killer robots.
Bake in a post-apocalyptic 100-plus degree oven (shot in New Mexico) until tender. Sauce liberally with the best CGI effects money can buy.
Serve hot to a hungry audience on May 22nd, 2009. Tastes just like a summer blockbuster.
Playmates has the license for action figures based on the film. The bread and butter are the 3 3/4" line of Terminators such as the T-600, the T-700, and the T-800, seen below.
For human figures, the small band of rebels, all that stands between freedom and extermination, are represented by John Connor, Barnes, Marcus, and Battle Damaged Marcus. All of the 3 3/4" figs are SRP of $7.99.
Playmates kicks it up a notch with the 6" tall line. Among the Terminators in this line are the completely wicked ‘bot below that looks like the T1 from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
The six inch line, which does include human characters in addition to the Terminators shown below, will retail for $11.49 each.
Topping the Playmates selection at a huge 10 inches tall are a selection of robots. These monsters will run $24.49 apiece.
The entire Playmates offering is scheduled to ship in April 2009. Check with your local comic shop for availability.
