The Terminator Genisys bust wants your clothes,your boots and possibly a few limbs

T 800 (4)

I recently watched Terminator Genisys, which was a thoroughly silly, yet sort of enjoyable flick. It wasn’t perfect mind you. A trailer for the film gave away a great twist far too damn early, Hollywood is obsessed with making Jai Courtney a star even though nobody cares about him and the time travel shenanigans made zero sense whatsoever.

Still, Genisys had plenty going for it, thanks to the former Governator returning to his signature role. Old, but not obsolete, the original Terminator at least managed to make us all forget about that Terminator: Salvation film from a couple of years ago. My favourite scene in the film though, had to be seeing young and old Arnold Schwarzeneggers clash in a mighty flesh collision.

It was proper impressive seeing the amount of work that went into recreating an iconic scene from the original 1984 film. And for many people, the 1984 T-800 is their Terminator. It’s just a pity that only so much of that Terminator is still intact:

Chronicle Collectibles is excited to share the 1984 Terminator Genisys Battle Damaged 1:2 Scale Bust. This product came to life using the CGI scan files as a base and a little work from our team of artists to match the battle damage from Terminator Genisys after the fight scene between the 1984 Terminator and the Guardian in Griffith Park. This product captures the nostalgia of seeing that young familiar face walk out of the shadows of the alley and the excitement of watching the nearly invincible Terminator get beaten.

The battle damage is accurate to the film and his T-800 eye is wired to light up. All of these units will be numbered.

I can’t get over the accurately sculpted nipples. Chronicle Collectibles is only making 1000 of these busts available. Like the description above said, it’s at a 1:2 scale, so around half the size of Arnie then. It’ll set you back $350. Tell your bank that you’ll be baahck.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    I’m sure if a 1:2 scale bust of Arnie and his nipples is really something I would like that much in my house.

    • Nipples? No, I made a mistake. They’re actually film-accurate mini-fusion cores disguised as nipples.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Oh okay. Then it’s fine. It’s much less weird to have knobbly fusion cores on your chest.

  • Hammersteyn

    Did EA release this? Where’s the rest? Is it part of DLC?

  • Dutch Matrix

    This bust is so awesome! If only Santa existed!

    I wonder if an stl exists of this? Now I’m not advocating 3D printing piracy, but I would be tempted to use a 3D printer and craft an arnie!!

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      This is how Skynet starts

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I’m probably in the minority, but I actually enjoyed Genisys. I would still rank Terminator 1 and 2 above it, but it was a lot more enjoyable than Terminator 3 or (sigh) Terminator Salvation Batman….

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      I also enjoyed it. I think Salvation was on par with it though (and I know I’m the minority). But Terminator 3 was pure garbage. Not only the worst Terminator movie ever, but possibly the worst sci-fi movie of its time. 1 and 2 are still the undefeated.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I heard that they use Terminator 3 in Gitmo to torture belligerent prisoners…. (truly cruel and unusual punishment)

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          It would certainly work on me. Ten minutes of that and I’ll spill all my secrets.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            10 minutes? Nah, I’d spill my beans within seconds. 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I agree, also enjoyed Salvation. T3 was just… kak.

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Yes. Finally someone agrees!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I finally got around to watching Genisys & the latest Fantastic Four this last weekend. I need people to remind me why they’re the worst movies ever. Sure they’ve got a few problems, but neither is particularly terrible overall.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I think folks (especially the critics) are just overly critical. I haven’t watched Fantastic Four yet, but will do as soon as I can.

        Granted… every Sunday, I consciously watch really terrible movies (as part of BadMoviesSundays), so maybe my judgement isn’t the greatest when it comes to movies.

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          I also need to get around to the new Fantastic Four. Ant-Man was good, but not great. Still think Age of Ultron was better.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I didn’t like Ultron that much when I watched it at the cinema, enjoyed it a lot more the second time around at home.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I only watched it at home, but thought it was pretty decent.
            All that remains now is SW Ep VII.
            Be afraid.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’m avoiding all trailers & anyone who starts talking about the movie with “OMG!”. The Ant-Man trailer ruined the final fight. I laughed my arse off at the trailer, when I watched the movie and it got around to that I was like, “seen it”.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Same here. Worked well for me with Fallout, so should work with SW. Just avoiding everything.
            I luckily didn’t see any Ant-Man trailers, so I was safe with that one.

      • The Lady Red

        Fantastic Four should have been released way before any of Ant Man and Ultron with enough time to not be able to compare because it’s not fresh on their minds of comparison. Screenplay wise it was not the best, but graphics and acting was well done.

        I personally really liked Genisys.. when I first heard about it, I rolled my eyes. Then within the first 7-10 minutes, it does hook you. Right there, the screenwriters, actors and director did their job.

        More on my own post….

  • The Lady Red

    In response to some comments below, Fantastic Four should have been released way before any of Ant Man and
    Ultron with enough time to not be able to compare because it’s not fresh
    on their minds of comparison. Screenplay wise it was not the best, but
    graphics and acting was well done.

    I personally really liked
    Genisys.. when I first heard about it, I rolled my eyes. Then within the
    first 7-10 minutes, it does hook you. Right there, the screenwriters,
    actors and director did their job. However, this is where they lose some
    of the audience who love the Terminator Franchise… They made a weaker
    heroine who is an iconic strong female non-emotional but erratic and
    vioent character. Emilia Clarke is a phenomenal actress and she is
    perfect for the role of the younger Sarah Connor and has what it takes
    to dig into that hardcore self. Here is where screenwriting failed=
    Making her weak and far too many funny moments. Look at the recipe in 1
    and 2. You have funny moments but they come rare and far between. You
    have cold awkward stares, gritty atmosphere, and you want to feel for
    the character. The character needed to be not JUST sad about the loss of
    her folks and why they were killed, but angry and cold about it. Stop
    adding dialogue that Sarah Connor would not say. Example, when she
    called Reese “Soldier”. Yes, she is an altered Sarah Connor but the
    fundamentals of how her character shuts down, is anti authority, anti
    attachment, cynical, a bit insane, and emotionally distant is what makes
    her a challenge but also likable for the audience because they want to
    see some semblance of joy for her, if even for a small time. They want
    to see her triumph.. but also kick ass. How often did she get knocked
    back and fall down or appear weak in Genisys? Too many times.

    Jai
    Courtney was actually perfect for Kyle Reese. If you look at the 1, you
    have that genuine naive look with females, and someone who wanted to
    serve his commander and be a good soldier. He is also appealing to the
    eye which is good for females who do not know the Terminator Franchise
    and are introduced to it by their boyfriends or husbands. Those of us
    educated in film would like him regardless as he is convincing and
    brings alot to the table.

    Genisys biggest mistake: Jason Clarke.
    Wrong casting, and his reformation as antagonist could have been done
    differently. Not enough time in the beginning for the audience to get
    used to him as John Connor, and nor care that something happened to him.
    He was just silly as an antagonist. I can’t say a positive thing about
    his character in this film or the actor and that is very hard for me to
    say as I always look for that silver lining. Not in this selection,
    writing or action.

    Biggest Upsell and Success: Arnie. Future
    (Younger) Arnie and Old Arnie. Their downfall was not using that for a
    better story. Less CGI fight outs and electrical waves and more hand to
    hand GRITTY combat between old Arnie and Young Arnie. What would have
    been better is that when they had said young Arnie Terminator back in
    time, that should have been a big part of the story. Young Arnie
    Terminator hunting down Older Arnie and crew. Meanwhile the Asian Cop
    Liquid Terminator is also hunting for them. Something could have been
    done with John Connor during this time but what people really liked was
    Arnie vs Arnie.OLD SCHOOL.

    One key thing: Bring back the gritty
    ingredients…That is what makes the ingredients for the love for
    Terminator 1 and 2. That’s what brought audiences’ hopes for 3 and 4 and
    that’s what was lacking in 5.
