The Decline of the T-800 Line of Terminator
on 12/30/2008 (5)
For years, if you bought a T-800 series Terminator from Cyberdyne Systems, you knew you were getting a quality killing machine, easily capable of killing humans in the past, present, and future. The last five years though has seen a marked decline in the quality of such formerly great products.
"A late 80's or early 90's T-800 was an unstopable killing machine," said media mogal Rupert Murdoch, who has taken out several rivals through the use of a terminator."Now they are pretty much junk, only suitable for the termination of the most incompitent employees."
On the left side in the below picture is a 1984 T-800 model. It is lean, strong, and most definately bad ass. This is the model that put Cyberdyne on the map.
Compare that with the picuture on the left of a 2008 T-800. It is flabby, out of shape, and far less menacing.
Right: Put a shirt on.
While Cyberdyne has assured consumers that, despite how it looks on the outside, the internals are still as strong a killing machine as it was when it first went into production in the early 1980's, customers have complained otherwise.
"These new T-800 are always getting winded or having to take naps or going on and on about how much harder they had it in their day," said one long-time customer who is now considering poisoning his town's watersupply as a more effective means to take out rivals.
Many blame the failures of the recent T-800 model on Cyberdyne's new model additions such as the T-850, T-1000, and T-X, which have spread resources of the company thin while garnishing only modest profits. Others feel the T-800 line is simply too old and needs to be retired."0"0" style
