During the years Todd McFarlane has created various Terminator figures. What started as just figures in the Movie Maniacs series, later became its own serie when Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines hit theatres.
However, what most people do not know is that several of these figures have small differences. Some noticeable, some hard to spot. This article lists the McFarlane action figures, plus shows these small differences between the figures.

Initially, the T-800 was intended to come with two heads - one battle damaged, and one unscarred, but Arnold Schwarzenegger changed his mind about the figure and withdrew his likeness. This resulted that McFarlane had to change the face and give it more damage. [Thanks to Nocturne for the scans]
