I don't get it. How can you have a Terminator game with a ton of minis and not have Sarah Connor?

Not even as a stretch goal?

Apparently, they couldn't get the rights to Linda Hamilton

This is Terminator Genisys. They don't need Linda Hamilton's likeness.

Just for the record this isn't a designer or publishers choice... we're BOUND legally.

1 - We can't use Linda Hamilton because her likeness doesn't belong to Genisys licensing. Same with Lena Headly.

2 - The actress Emilia Clarke has refused to allow us to use her or her likeness. So that rules out Sarah.

3 - She's dead in the time frame we've set the game in.

Not our choice... I WISH we could... we've tried.

Sorry.

That's weird about Emilia Clarke. You coulda always done like River Horse did with Sean Connery in the Highlander game? Although yeah, your timeframe being what it is, hardly worth the rigmarole.

Thank you for your answer and your efforts. I know it's not the timeframe but since when has that ever impeded this franchise?

But your answer makes total sense, I appreciate you taking the time to give it. The game does look great! I was just curious, is all.

Because lawyers are as relentless as a T-800.
