The Cyberdyne Systems Series 800 Terminator AKA the T-800. A hyperalloy endoskeleton wrapped in living tissue and capable of not only infiltrating human resistance camps but being able to survive the hazardous journey through time itself. For many of us, the most iconic incarnation of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic murder machine is the one found in Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Considered to be a perfect sequel, this was the film where the T-800 went from unstoppable killing machine to a noble protector tasked with ensuring the survival of John Connor. You probably remember exactly how this T-800 even got his threads: Naked as the day he was constructed, ripping a biker bar apart and riding off into the night on the sweetest of hogs.
There’s no shortage of Terminator 2 collectibles (If I had $500 I’d happily spend it on on the Hot Toys sixth-scale collectible), but this latest stab at the franchise might just be the biggest slice of merchandise ever. Behold, an actual 1/4 scale statue of the Terminator on his Harley Davidson!
“I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, And Your Motorcycle”
