February 19, 2019 | By | 7 Replies More

From tomorrow (20th February 2019), Hachette Partworks is releasing a new weekly part-work collecting magazine into newsagents to build a model T-800 Endoskeleton (scale 1:2, 93cm height) as part of this year’s 35th Anniversary of the original film.

The finished T-800 model will feature articulated limbs and LED eyes that light up and move from right to left via a remote control. The completed model will be displayed on a base with a post-apocalyptic design.

Originally released in 1984, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Michael Biehn (Kyle Reese), Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) and written/directed by James Cameron, The Terminator showed the dark side of technology and artificial intelligence.

Alexa, start World War Three, please!

The first Terminator: Build The T-800 Endoskeleton issue is £1.99, with the others 119 issues needed to build it retailing at £8.99 each.

We make that £1068.79 to finish it off, unless our AI’s maths circuits are being jammed today.

    We are being currently regaled with ads for another partwork to Build the Bismarck… 140 parts, mostly at £8.99 after the introductory issue, making £1251.60…

      How much would we have to pay to sink it?

      The first issue of Build the Bismark is £1.99, the second at £5.99 and the remaining 138 issues at £8.99 which makes £1,248.60. I looked into it just to see what the final cost would be. Makes you wonder if the people who initially subscribe realise the true cost.

        Do i really need 138 copies to build the %$^^&&?

        It makes you wonder if the people wondering if people subscribing to partwork models think we have eyes in our head and an ability to read….

        Do you look at broadband deals, find a fibre optic deal for, say, £24pm, and go “WHAT?!!! £576 for 2 years of broadband?!! No way, I’m not paying nearly 600 quid for broadband!!”
