Worth Hunting Down: Sideshow’s New Terminator
By Della Serene
T3 Prop Replica
Following in the footsteps of the first two Terminator movies, Terminator
3: Rise of the Machines has drawn throngs of summer moviegoers. Sideshow
has crafted two replicas of the Terminator TX and a lithograph
of the T1000 to capture the likenesses of America’s favorite
"The replicas will be crafted directly from the molds used to generate
the effects for the film,” says Sideshow President Greg Anzalone.
The TX Head 1:1 Prop Replica ($499) has a high-quality
black-chrome finish, which adds a menacing luster. It includes the head
and neck portion of the robot and is mounted on a sleek base with a TX
nameplate and the film title, "Rise of the Machines," engraved
upon it. The prop stands fifteen inches tall, and lights up with an eerie
blue glow, including the strobing, breathing effect seen in the film.

A smaller replica of the TX is done on a 1:6
scale, also in a high quality, black-chrome finish. The sculpture
includes the head, painted in a transparent blue paint effect to give
the illusion that it is glowing, and neck portion of the robot. It is
mounted on a sleek base adorned with the T3 logo ($15).
Schwarzenegger’s T1000 is the subject of a limited edition lithograph
($399) by photographer Robert Zuckerman that captures the iconic image
of Schwarzenegger’s robot. The 17” X 25”print is limited to 500 prints.
