Crappy action-figure v.2009, the list starts now....say hello to Playmates' Terminator: Salvation toys!!!



Hmm, this particular article on "Crap-on-the-way" by my fellow collector buddy, Adrian got me laughing off my office seat just now....heheheh! Or to put it more delicately, he calls it the "S**t list of toys"! Since I have a few more minutes till the 'official' lunch hour ends, I think I'd scribble some thoughts on the matter.

I think most of us, when we were children, didn't care as much on how our toys look like. Well, it's adequate if it's just a glimpse of what the characters were portrayed like in their respective TV series. Heck, one might even laugh at the image of past 80's toys ie. Thundercats, Silverhawk, M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe and the likes...they look so cartoony now if compared to modern action figures produced by Hot Toys, Enterbay, Sideshow Collectibles or even HASBRO to some extent.

Seeing a teaser poster for the movie......


And the random cool images from the movie......


One could expect to get action-figures of such quality....







Or at least (at minimum!)........





...to be produced with the present modern mass-market manufacturing capabilities of toy companies nowadays.


But instead, we're getting these....(one of the images taken from Playmates official news release..).......


See pictures of others at Adrian's blog. Talk about going backwards......while these were definitely acceptable in the 80's.......it's definitely gonna be passed on by many.......

Here's another review that tends to sound a liiiittle bit dissapointed as well.

*Sigh*......the governator would've been very disappointed
