Finally, a John Matrix action figure

1 min read

John Matrix (3)

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a career out of movies which starred his hamfists as they beat exposition into various thugs. Which he did, a lot. But which was the finest film of his career, worthy of a brand new highly detailed action figure? Terminator? Nope, we’ve got plenty of T-800s. Pregnant? Not unless you want to club in for a Danny Devito figure. No, that honour belongs to Commando, a movie which ate green berets for breakfast and crapped out memorable one liners. And now you can finally own a John Matrix figure.

Sideshow Collectibles, who you got a taste of at rAge this year, have the John Matrix collectible up for grabs from Hot Toys. It’s Arnie in his prime, ready to kick ass and take names. Check it out:

And now for the details. $249.99  gets you the figure. Here are the important stats from Sideshow:

  • A newly developed head sculpt with authentic and detailed likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger as John Matrix in Commando
  • Movie-accurate facial expression with detailed wrinkles, skin texture, and war paint
  • A newly developed muscular body with seamless upper body and over 26 points of articulations

      The 80s was so cheesy that most Americans are now lactose intolerant
