Name of Card Set: Terminator 2 Judgement Day
Production Company: The Topps Company, Inc.
Distribution Company: Carolco Pictures Inc
Year of Production: 1991
Pack Contents: 5 stickers
When T2 burst onto the scene in the early 90's, it forever changed how special effects were used (and received) in movies. Combining never-before-seen effects with unbelievable action sequences and a kick ass soundtrack highlighted by Guns 'n Roses, Terminator 2 went on to enjoy huge success around the world. Never wanting to miss an opportunity at cashing in on an opportunity, Topps Inc. released a set of stickers based on the movie.
To be blunt, the effort behind this release had to be nothing less than half-hearted. The packaging (above) is extremely minimal, and the contents were not much better. Each pack contained five stickers and a stick of gu...wait...what's going on? No gum?!? Come on Topps! Perhaps the lack of the familiar stick of pink 'gum' best exemplifies the utter lack of effort for the T2 sticker set. The stickers themselves are good quality, and feature scenes from the movie on both the front and back. There are no inserts or fun 'character' cards as found in other movie-based releases.
