Terminator 4 Toys Reveal Cuteness, Secrets

Who doesn't want one of these cute Terminator Salvation action figures, with the light-up red eyes? The full new action-figure pics also include some possible spoilers.

The figures come in 3.75 inch, 6 inch and 10 inch sizes, and each set includes Terminators, Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) and usually John Connor (Christian Bale). "Multiple Terminator styles to create your own Skynet army!" says the toy manufacturer, Playmates. (Off the top of my head, I can see the T-600 and a small version of a Harvester.) And one of those figure sets also seems to include Common.


The thing that jumps out at me, though, is the six-inch figure with the metal hand. That looks like John Connor, not Marcus, which lends more credence to the idea that Connor gets Terminatorized at some point. Update: Commenters KSChris and apatheos convinced me that's Marcus, not Connor.


Also, is Marcus the mohawked figure with parts of his skin torn off to reveal metal? It's been pretty much confirmed that he's a "decommissioned Terminator," but does he get a mohawk at some point? Are mohawks just the required hairstyle for the post-apocalypse nowadays? Is there a body-mod shop and hair salon out in the ruins of Santa Ana that specializes in partially shaving heads and spiking hair? (Update: commenter se7a7n7 suggests it's actually the T-800 played by bodybuilder Roland Kickinger, which makes total sense.)

Finally, what on Earth is up with Common's outfit? It looks like he's going to a video-game disco circa 1982. Don't believe me? See for yourself:
