If the special edition sounds familiar, it’s because this is the second time it has been put up for pre-orders. The first run got canceled due to reported “problems with production/manufacturing” leaving fans high and dry. Some customers were devastated by the renege.
“I wanted to cry as I would do at the end of T2,” said Arnaud Biry after being notified of the October 2017 cancellation.
Now Biry and others will be getting a second chance to purchase the limited supply item.
Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Terminator 2: Judgment Day Endoarm 4K Ultra HD O-ring Collector's Edition. The highlight of the bundle is a life-size replica arm from a T-800 endoskeleton. The EndoArm comes in a numbered acrylic display case autographed by Director James Cameron.
In addition to the cool prop, purchasers will also receive the following:
- 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray of the theatrical film
- New Blu-ray disc fully loaded with special features
- Brand-new 55-minute documentary featuring James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong, and more
- Deleted scenes with audio commentary
- 3 versions of the film
- 2 commentaries and more
The bundle will retail for $175, which seems like a lot, but only 6,000 will be shipped. I would not be surprised to see buyers selling the replica alone on eBay for more than $175 shortly after release.
"6,000 life-sized EndoArm units available in the U.S.A. - once these are gone, they are gone forever!!"
