#55: Terminator Salvation T-1

One of the positive things that can be said of Terminator 3 is that it gave us the T-1, from which all Terminators are apparently descended. More akin to a tank than a human, this isn't something you'd want to run into in a dark alley. Or anywhere, really. The T-1 is part of the six inch line, for which it is curiously undersized. It works well with the 3 3/4 inch figures, though. It's a bit large to be sold as a 3 3/4 inch figure, so including it with the six inch line makes sense.

The T-1's articulation is limited to swiveling its rear wheels, its torso, and its guns back and forth, so it seems like it would be easy to avoid being shot by it by either crouching down, or perhaps going up on a balcony. Also, the ends of its guns shoot off, which is an odd move for a pair of machine guns. Clearly Skynet had a lot of improvement to make before it got to the T-800.

As I've mentioned before, I dig killer robots, and this is a cool addition to any mechanical army. An army of these would be cool, but they're not exactly clogging the shelves, so buy one when you see it if you want one.
