I wish they could have at least done the lettering differently or possibly portrayed the "Schwarzenegger" text as if it was on fire or something to blend it in a bit more. The large white border also doesn't do it for me but I guess they had to make room for Schwarzenegger's name. I think a full bleed would have looked better.
Could mat over it
Another good suggestion.
I'm going to add in "'Hasta La Vista, Baby' - T-800" to the bottom of mine.
Hang on. Is this a poster for the original Terminator, or the sequel, or both? That quote is definitely from T2.

Putting quotes from the sequel on the original's poster is en vogue these days.

This. I wondered the exact same thing when I saw this.

Also, could do without two appearances from Mr. Biehn too. (And no Arnold? SMH)

I wonder if that means Arnold will be absent from the T2 poster as well.

Grey Matter has been hitting them out of the park for the most part but this a big giant whiff. Arnold's name is bolder than the title, his likeness is replaced by a smudge and two kyle reeses (one of them holding the endos peen!). All in all this is a pretty disappointing effort.

This is an excellent print, in my opinion. I wonder at the criticisms i see so often on these pages, in the forums. The criticisms from people who couldn't design/create a print if their existence depended on it. I dont need Arnold's likeness being more prominently featured to know this is a Terminator print/appreciate it. I think the variant color scheme is fantastic, really pops. Far as the gun being at crotch level, perhaps undernourished brains may make some metaphorical connection. I see a great print here. Not phallic fallacies, ha. I feel that Gabz' work is grossly underrated. To each his own. Kudos!

Wow a lotta hating on this one. I like for the most part but sorry Gabz y'all are right about the name on top, other than that it's killer.

I was sorta wondering about this since I noticed Richard's Total Recall pulled the same thing . Then I looked up the original posters on GIS

JC Richard said the same thing of his 'Total Recall' poster for Mondocon.

In response to my note, "I love your art, but the chip port on the Terminator’s head is on the wrong side.
Having Kyle holding a shotgun at crotch level? That’s like an invitation for penis jokes."
when i see this print i think " at last a terminator print taht show people" but somehow there something off about it .. well after reading this, now i just think about robot with a penis.....

Personally I love this print and glad it was easy to pull a variant! Also, I am looking forward to the T2 that should be coming out in the next couple of months to hang with it.....and I welcome Arnold's name at the top of that one as well. :D

I picked it up the variant & I know that fudge is going to look bad ass on my wall. Ultimately that's all that drymounting matters.
