One of the most highly sought after Terminator collectibles of late looks to have been sadly cancelled in France (pre-orders cancelled)…
We have earlier reported that it was revealed that there have been problems with production/manufacturing of the ENDO ARM Editions of the new Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D/4K home releases.
Could this be a full wide-spread cancellation of the product? They are all delayed indefinitely and now France looks to have completely cancelled (at least at certain retail outlets) with other cancellations possibly to follow.
Terminator Fan Arnaud Biry who notified us of the cancellation is, understandably, extremely disappointed. He received the following email notification today from the retailer he pre-ordered his ENDO ARM from (google translation from French)…
Following the cancellation of the release of “Terminator – Terminator 2: The Last Judgment Ultimate Blu-ray Collector Edition” at the Publisher who had to deal with many unforeseen manufacturing, your pre-order can not be honored.
We are forced to cancel it.
Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. We remind you that no bank debit has been made on this item since the invoice is only established at the time of shipment.
We thank you for your understanding and hope to have the opportunity to satisfy you quickly.

I wanted to cry as I would do at the end of T2. It’s my all time favorite movie and I was so excited about this release. I have watched the new remaster in the theater twice.
Overall this is extremely disappointing news, if there are manufacturing problems then STUDIOCANAL should find someone who can meet the supply and demand and go to the effort of making the product a reality instead of letting a fan base down- a fan base which is already extremely let down and already disappointed. Just abandoning the product to us would be lazy and unacceptable and even if the US, Germany and the UK get their pre-orders how would that be fair on French Terminator Fans? We have been speaking to other French fans who largely feel deceived.
STUDIOCANAL please sort this mess out or you’re going to piss off everyone who ordered this product. It is understandable to ask people who pre-ordered for patience but to keep changing dates then go on to let fans down is really not cool.
