I've had this toy for quite a while and it's one of my favourite figures.

It's sculpt, engineering and paint application are top-notch.

It comes with the following weapons. As with most of my figures, I'm not concerned with how movie-accurate they are, and I'm satisfied if they just look good.

See the piston at the forearm?

When you rotate the wrist, all three pistons moves in the direction of the rotation.

All four fingers have four joints each and the thumb comes with three.

The pistons at the inner thighs follow the leg movement...

...retracting when you move the thigh forward...

...and extending when moved backwards.

The toes on each foot are articulated...

and the metatarsals follow the movement of the sole.

Even it's jaws are articulated...

...though it comes off as more cheery then menacing.

My favourite feature is the light-up eyes, which are activated by a switch on it's back.

Here's the Endoskeleton with a kitbash of it with it's flesh on.

This toy is really quite an engineering feat for a figure of this scale. I'm looking forward to Salvation and hope Hot Toys gets another shot at this figure when that comes around.

    Great photo review ,it looks identical to the Hot toys T-700 from Terminator salvation i bought last year ,except mine is a dark grey and has a dirty washed out look ,and it comes with no weapons .
    I'd like to add this one to my collection,but it is probably going for big bucks on the secondary market .
