Sideshow Terminator T 800 Life Size Bust 003

New photos and info have been released for Sideshow’s The Terminator – T-800 Life Size Bust. The new pics give us a very detailed look at the finalized collectible. It will feature light up LED eyes and an articulated neck joint. The T-800 Bust stands at 27″ tall and 17″ wide at the shoulders. The bust is Available Now at a price of $899.99.

Bring home a piece of Terminator film history! From the original sci-fi blockbuster, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Terminator Life-Size Bust.

In 1984, James Cameron introduced the world to the Terminator. Part man, and part machine, Skynet’s merciless T-800 cyborgs brought chills of terror that would haunt generations to come. Measuring over two feet tall and nearly as wide at the shoulders, Sideshow’s artists have faithfully reconstructed every detail of the iconic endoskeleton, from the intricate mechanical chassis to the weathered metallic finish. Complete with an articulated head and menacing red light-up eyes, the Terminator Life-Size Bust is one of the finest models Sideshow – and Cyberdyne – have ever had to offer.
