Funko T800 Endoskeleton (Chrome) ReAction FigureWhen it came to Terminator in this style I was pretty happy - the Alien figures were good and with Kenner's original Terminator 2 line over 20 years ago, it seemed that a good T800 Endoskeleton (Chrome) would be pretty easy to pull off. Well... it's easy to be wrong I guess.

My expectation for this particular 4-inch tall figure was to get something on par with C-3PO from the 1970s and 1980s - a sturdy, shiny figure with minimal (or no) deco beyond the shiny finish on his body. I figured it should be able to stand, and anything else is a nice bonus. It can't stand well, the legs are bent a bit in what I assume is a manufacturing problem, and the head feels a little rubbery at the neck joint which worries me for the long-term viability of the vac-metal finish. There's also some paint scuffing and a crack at the bottom of the torso, but nothing has fallen apart yet.

One leg is very stiff, and the other is somewhat loose. Posing him to stay standing is a bit of a trial and he doesn't seem to love standing on a figure stand too much due to the metal finish. The limbs are skinny, but the sculpt rings true to the movie design by and large. You get your eyes and teeth, and most of the parts look like what you might have expected out of a toy line that came out in the wake of the sci-fi sweep of theaters in the early 1980s.

With 5 joints - the head is easily moved but its finish seems a little lumpy. I expected it to be silver and sturdy, and while it is silver that doesn't feel like enough. This seems to be a figure - and a figure line - best appreciated as a carded sample. I've still got a ton of vintage action figures with nicely moving limbs and a sturdy build, so I'm sure this isn't an issue of rose colored glasses here. The older toys are empirically better than this particular specimen, as are most of Funko's other offerings, Zica's, Bif Bang Pow!'s, and so on. I disliked this specific figure so much I actually cancelled several of my backorders on other figures in the ReAction range, but not the whole thing - I'm still an optimist, or a masochist.

I wouldn't have expected C-3PO to be a beefier figure, though, and the wobbly feel of this guy makes me worried I'm going to break it if I play with it. I waited a few months to write the review because I can get pretty irate when a figure comes in below expectations, and I'd hate to think that a hot-headed moment may make me tell you to pass on a figure rather than its own merits. This figure has few merits, and its form as a novelty is most of what it has to offer. I'd suggest that you go ahead and pass on it - get some original Kenner T2 toys instead. Or other ReAction figures - those based on Alien and Predator are well-made, and I'm quite fond of Universal Monsters too.
