The Terminator (1984): "I'll be back!"

"The Terminator" was a 1984 sci-fi/action film directed and co-written by James Cameron who would also direct "Aliens (1986)" and "The Abyss (1989)" - all three films starred Michael Biehn as a military guy/soldier - before returning to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)".

Michael Biehn played Kyle Reese, a Tech-Com sergeant sent from the future to rescue Sarah Connor played by Linda Hamilton from Skynet's Terminator T-800 played by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger who would go on to utter his now very famous line: "I'll be back!" - Great movie!

Battle Damaged Terminator by Hot Toys (looks nothing like Arnold Schwarzenegger but still cool nonetheless) - he carries the 7.62 mm M134 Minigun OR gatling gun only featured in T2 but hey, the more weapons, the better!!

Hi Alex. Hot Toys' items are really hot and they fly off the shelves really fast. I only see the newer releases in the shops, doubt Reese is still around. Thanks for looking :)
