Today we have two new images for the upcoming fourth installment to the Terminator franchise.

The first of the two features Christian Bale Playing with Skorponok’s tail while air-transporting it back to the United States after a fierce battle in the desert. Wait a sec… wrong movie.

This is actually John Connor examining a Hydrobot as seen in the Terminator Salvation concept art I posted about back in November. I don’t particularly care about this Terminator design as I don’t feel it fits into the pre-established Terminator universe from the earlier movies and even the show.

Obviously, my feelings can change once getting a good look at it in the film and I’m pretty excited to see how it plays out. Apparently, the Hydrobot can attack by sea or air. The film is introducing ten (that’s right 10!) NEW Terminator designs into the new movie. Whether that’s good or bad I’m not sure yet but I wished they give more focus to the vehicles we got brief glimpses of in Terminator 1 & 2 and only add a few new ones. From what we saw in the trailer, the new bots shown all look like they’re from Transformers or The Matrix.

The second new picture we have is of some soldier approaching a recently downed planes – Probably a result of those pesky robots. I’m not sure who it is yet but for fun I can guess that it’s Bale or Sam Worthington’s character.

What do you think? Are you digging all of the new bot-designs?
