Robert is a great fan of the Terminator franchise and loves collecting memorabilia; he had a lot of fun putting together a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles press kit and kindly offered to share pictures with us.
We're more than happy to share this hard to find memorabilia from the marketing campaign which preceded the launch of the tv series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on FOX on January 13, 2008.
This promo collectible was never available for purchase in stores and only sent to FOX TV executives and members of the media.
It all started when these lucky few received a mysterious nondescript plain white envelope containing a simple note, signed by John Connor, and a key.
A few days later, they received a Security Trust of Los Angeles Safety Deposit Box A-117 (it's a real metal distressed safety deposit box with a key in the lock. Two items were inside the box: a DVD copy of the Pilot episode and the second episode "Gnothi Seauton" that aired on Jan. 14th, and a USB drive containing cast photos and short TSCC videos clips.
Here's a little virtual tour of Robert's set which started out simply as an empty press kit deposit with the key. Both official but they arrived incomplete and parted out. He also had foam custom cut to give it an official look:
In Robert's own words: "To replace the vacant pen drive I included this awesome set of 8GB USB Dog Tags [I felt this suited the theme]. Totally packed full of content painstakingly sourced online, including trailers, documentaries, interviews, promo art and articles. Also featured is the unaired pilot with some alternatives scenes that were reshot for the official release. Roughly 5GB of T:SCC content is stored".
I included two pictures of the original TSCC dog-tag key chains:
He had collectors postcards printed as an additional touch, roughly 20 all together not all featured in these images:
Here are screencaps from the pilot, where you can see the Security Trust Of Los Angeles and the safe box a117, that had bundles of keys inside:
I hope everyone enjoyed the tour.
Congrats Robert for your dedication and thanks again for the great pictures.

Robert. Nice pics. Perhaps, who knows, Megan Ellison being who she is, might surprise everyone with her Annapurna Pictures film. We will see.
There's a possibility that the new T film might be called 'Terminator: No fate but what we make'. That is the name of the drafted script that Megan Ellison told us on twitter that she was reading.

Thanks buddy, was a fun little project to work on. Currently working on getting the A-117 keychain made to finish the set off. Will post pics when I get that sorted
I'm keeping my fingers crossed with Elisson and Annapurna's upcoming Terminator effort. As a company they certainly produce quality films so it may just be in capable hands.
I dig the title Terminator: No Fate But What We Make... gives me hope that the first 2 movies are being held closely when moving forward with the franchise.
