Yep, I think we all knew we were in trouble the minute Arnie put on those star shades. :slap

You know, a Terminator wouldn't know the first thing about fashion and wouldn't be concerned about appearances, so I didn't have a problem with it. I thought that fact (apart from it's visual absurdity) was what made him more like the T1 Terminator. The fact that he recognized they were absurd and stepped on them only to put "cooler" ones on was what I had a problem with. That and looking for the keys under the visor.

I thought that was a different Terminator... :slap

T4>T3 in my book, T3 turned terminator into a joke, to much cheese and a lame story. T4 gave us a cool T600 at least, story was average with a lot of holes but was overall entertaining, it just lacked the big war scenes I was hoping to see.

Good post. T4 wasnt all that good but I didn't think it was as bad as everyone told me it was.
And its certainly better than T3 by a mile.

I watched T3 in the theatre twice. It was basically, "Cool! Arnold's back as the Terminator again!" That's basically all there is to like about that movie. Watch Arnold do some Terminator stuff in a non-cannon popcorn flick.

TS had potential but it didn't quite come together and pull off something great. I was willing to stay with it and see what the next movie would bring, but that was the end of that. My biggest annoyance was the T-600s. I think TSCC showed the T-600s much truer to Reese's brief explanation.

Yeah, I kinda agree for the most part.

Some of the visuals were great though, like when John drops the beer bottle into the water while sitting on that bridge - then it goes into that future war sequence. The T-800s walking around looked ****ing sensational. :rock

I'm all for women action stars as much as the next person, but I could never accept the 'follow on' vibe with the TX.

I drop out as soon as she's on screen. :lol

Yeah T3 was an insult to T1 and T2 but I agree TS had potential but sadly after seeing the movie it left me feeling nothing for it.

Sadly the magic of T1 and T2 will not be captured on film again in my opinion.

Was TS not suppose to be the start of a new trilogy?

I thought that.

It will be interesting to see if he will return in the future with Arnie coming back to the francise.

Bale, Worthington and Bonham Carter all did nothing for me in that movie. My stand out guy from the movie was the young Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) that was a great bit of casting.

I thought T3 was ok. It was a pretty good action film if you took out the word Terminator from the title. I think we judge it so harshly because it has to measure up to T1 and T2 which as we all know were masterpieces. The bar was set to high. Still T3 is an enjoyable romp if you turn your brain off.

TS I hated because it was nothing like the future war scenes depicted in T1 and T2. I was also really pissed that the first 3 movies showed how useless non plasma weapons were against the Terminators to only have an entire move where stranded assault rifles were capable of wrecking machines.

Man, that kid playing Reese sure does get a lot of love. I thought he was way too wimpy for the role personally. Its been awhile since I seen Salvation, but I don't remember him standing out in a good way. Just my opinion, but if you guys liked him, then I have no problem with it. Biehn was a bada$$ MF in Terminator, so casting a younger version of that would have been difficult, no matter who they got.

That was a major bug of mine. The future scenes from the originals especially T1 really painted a grim future with rubber machines infiltrating human bases and causing havocwas a sight to behold on first viewing.

T3 nor TS came close to capturing the scary villain element from the original two like Arnie in T1 or the rubber Terminators, or the cold ruthless T-1000 from T2.

I think T3 and TS really suffered from not having a convincing scary villain.

Well, I think they didn't want to start the world off in complete rubble. I'm sure if there had been more movies that we would have seen a world closer to Cameron's flash back scenes.

Sidious-66
08-29-2013, 11:02 AM
Yeah I think that would have been explored more in other movies.

As for the young Reese he didn't blow me away with his performance but I enjoyed him the most in TS. To me he was a believable and convincing young Reese but as you say Biehn was great in T1 and that character will forever be associated with him.

But I agree Terminator is finished even with an Arnie comeback the cheese from T3 would be doubled with all the attempt at comedy.

I would love to see Arnie knuckle down and portray an ageing King Conan and no one liners please.

Well, (deep breath)..

Apart from the whole package being sensational (:rock), I do see differences - in the eyes at least, between the two. The DX13 seems to be on the squinty side. I dig that. It looks more like Arnold to me that way.

More specifically too, the hair on the DX13 is broken up by the damage, so that slightly bulbous quality that the DX10 hair has - which is reminiscent of the EB 1/4 figure, isn't apparent as much.

I was always getting this figure, it was just a matter of funds.. :)

Actually, that's not what I meant at all, hence the words, "QC issues delaying production." Unless you think I'm alluding to time travel, that in no way can be mistaken for QC issues on the final product. I was going to provide some info on the manufacturing process, but I have a feeling that, like my attempts to explain the prototyping process, it will be largely ignored.

All I'll say is that it is not unreasonable at all to speculate that manufacturing issues are causing delays as it is common with all types of manufactured goods, even things that are not nearly as complicated as HT products. In fact, it is much more unreasonable to reject such a notion.

I'm always interested in another view, but given recent QC issues on Catwoman and the 89 Batmobile, my suspicion is that QC isn't a major concern at HT, sadly.

Now that I think about it, I ordered one of those Sideshow Fife and Drum figures from someone in Canada and the shipping wasn't much more expensive than shipping inside the USA. I didn't pay any customs.

It's funny you should mention Catwoman since that figure was delayed by a number of months, presumably due to difficulties involving the rooted hair. Just because the end product has QC issues doesn't mean that there weren't production delays due to QC issues. There's still a process of producing samples, testing, tweaking, etc. that happens with all products and inevitably cause delays for complex products. In the end, things get missed, problems appear when the full production run is underway, workers get lazy, etc. and that accounts for issues on the final product.

Well they do offer that "gift" option which changes the parameters for taxes and duties. Apparently it works!

Yep, I noticed when I put in my preorder for the 1/4 Batman that marking my shipments as "gift" was an option. There should be no customs fees if a package was shipped as a gift to you. I suppose it will be safe to do with a reputable company like BBTS, but you could run into problems if you need to file any sort of claim so I wouldn't recommend it if you aren't absolutely sure about the seller.

They do, but I still see they can be a few days behind plastic enemies, who did some terrible photography on Arnie. Luka saved the day with those beautiful close ups, showing that it wasn't the shiny, smooth, tan dollie that PE shot.

That's another T-800 series, but not the same model as Arnold. T-600s are only mentioned in The Terminator, but they would not be shown until The Sarah Connor Chronicles, appearing quite different from their later depiction in Salvation.

I think you are right but seeing both figures in person, you can tell where you should put your money

one other thing I don't like about Hot Toys' version (and probably applies to many other 1/6 out there) is that the material used for the jacket makes it look like a doll. The leather is too thick for such a small figure.

I see subtle differences that I personally think are visible - plus the damaged hair that breaks up the bulbous look the DX10 hair has.

Subtle differences besides more detail and nicer paint that inevitably are lost when manufactured. You are literally (with the exception of battle damage) looking at the final DX10 proto. Even though I can and have noted that the sculpts match up down to the number and placement of wrinkles, all it takes is a very basic understanding of the toy business to know that one sculpt (one finalized Arnold likeness) was used to produce 3 heads: clean, semi bd, and full bd.

In other words, you love ol' Benecio as long as he has all the love and attention a prototype receives. Unfortunately, that's not what you'll be getting and unless a resculpt has been done behind the scenes or they have upped the production standards, Benecio ala the DX10 is what you'll be getting. Luckily for us all, it seems that things have improved since the dip in quality that hurt the DX10, DX12, and a few others.

I know I've said this over and over and provided more details previously, but the fact stands that my observations here are not just me using my eyes, but they are also based on detailed insight into the process of creating and producing action figures. The only counter to my argument over the last year has been, "Well, I think it is different," and it's hardly an objective observation when we're talking about a figure that people decided to hate long before its release vs the version they wanted.

It's just silly how much hate has been directed at the DX10, particularly the likeness, when it's apparently just fine on the DX13.

Uhh, that is all. :lol

Subtle differences besides more detail and nicer paint that inevitably are lost when manufactured. You are literally (with the exception of battle damage) looking at the final DX10 proto. Even though I can and have noted that the sculpts match up down to the number and placement of wrinkles, all it takes is a very basic understanding of the toy business to know that one sculpt (one finalized Arnold likeness) was used to produce 3 heads: clean, semi bd, and full bd.

In other words, you love ol' Benecio as long as he has all the love and attention a prototype receives. Unfortunately, that's not what you'll be getting and unless a resculpt has been done behind the scenes or they have upped the production standards, Benecio ala the DX10 is what you'll be getting. Luckily for us all, it seems that things have improved since the dip in quality that hurt the DX10, DX12, and a few others.

Well firstly, don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to knock your insight. I understand the points you're making, which I acknowledge. :duff

Secondly - you have to at least acknowledge part of what I'm saying though. The chunks of hair missing from DX13's scalp change the visual impact of the headsculpt's silhouette alone. Couple that with one eye completely gone on the 2nd head - & it's fairly removed from the DX10's basic vibe anyway.

Thirdly - I see more squintyness in the eyes than the DX10 - is your position that it's simply not the case, or that any subtlety in detail like that will be lost in production?

I know you made the proto to final comment.. but I'm just clarifying it with you.

I get what vintijdroidgutzz is saying, the eyes are more closed on the dx13 as compared to the dx10, the dx10 has a great likeness to Arnold but where it fails is the puffy hair and the elongated depth of the sculpt due to the pers hatch along with the lack of fine details the mms117 had.

The problem with the dx10 is they cramed to much into a neckless sculpt, the pers, the hatch, and the chip removal feature which in turn make the connection the body looks like crap. I still like my dx10, its a cool figure and I'm getting the dx13 even though it has the same set-up cause it still looks [email protected]$$.

Though I will say both figures would have been way better if the pers system was not included, gimmics just take way the realism to a certain degree:lecture

I'm glad you are seeing what I'm trying to say. When I was typing about this shortly after the specs & pics were released, it looked like a number of people were just completely dismissing my points.

Couple that with one eye completely gone on the 2nd head - & it's fairly removed from the DX10's basic vibe anyway.

It does take away parts of a less than fantastic hair sculpt. I don't find any hair sculpts to be very attractive to be honest, but I don't think I'd want to deal with rooted hair so I'll deal with sculpted. But still, the shape and size of all the facial features are still the same, so if the DX10 has a bad jawline, nose, lips, etc. so does the DX13. The sculpt did not get stretched or lose its shape when the DX10 was produced. It's all still there, line for line, same as that DX13 proto. Compare with Luka's shots where he really captured all of the details of the DX10 where other photographers failed.

So I disagree, it is not removed from the basic vibe of the DX10. It seems pretty obvious that they were designed as companion pieces. They not only produced a brand new head sculpt, but also developed a brand new Arnold body. Rule of thumb for all toy companies: part reuse as much as possible.

I can't say for sure, but I'm willing to bet that HT wanted to just make a battle damaged T2, but knew that the MMS117 was not up to par compared to EB's work, so they had to develop a new head and body first. Since they had to develop a new head and body anyway, they probably figured they might as well start by making a new clean version to get as much mileage out of the project as possible.


Thirdly - I see more squintyness in the eyes than the DX10 - is your position that it's simply not the case, or that any subtlety in detail like that will be lost in production?

I know you made the proto to final comment.. but I'm just clarifying it with you.

Since there is no different sculpting in that area at all, just slightly wider eye openings, I'd say I'm all but certain it was simply the result of mass production. It also helps the DX13's eyes that the pers sit with less gap between the eyeballs and eyelids. Again, the difference between a sculpt getting one-on-one special care and attention, and getting put together by an underpaid worker on an assembly line.

NECA's Pescadero Escape and Scuderia's BD sculpt (EB) are the only figures that I feel got Arnie's T2 hairstyle/shape dead-on.

I can't stand rooted hair on 1/6 scale figures - hate it. The only thing I've see lately that actually looks good, is a custom Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman that a member posted in the Batman Returns section - it looks bloody amazing.

That said - I generally don't want any characters with super long hair anyway. The only ones that come to mind would be Julie Newmar CW & Lynda Carter WW - & with those, their hair is so heavily styled that sculpting it would work out alright anyway.

The others I want - like Famke Jean Grey, Halle Storm, Noomi Shaw, Ripley etc - all have short looks at one time or another, so I hope they get some high end love in those incarnations at some point. :)

While TOD is dark it also has some of the most cartoonish moments, like the hammer, or whatever it was, falling on a guards head, his response was quite Looney Toons. I think it even made a silly sound or something. Of course all of that is levity due to the dark nature but still. I like TOD but its my least watched so I can't remember it fully.

Well that's the one thing we have not seen so I'm curious as well, I'm thinking its gunna be the battle damaged chest cover.

Now you guys got me thinking about it. I would love to see BD worn leathers on the outside of the box in a similar style to the DX10, along with "hasta la vista baby" on the inside cover.

That's another possibility to compliment the DX10. I'm sure Skull had something similar in mind with torn leathers and exposed chest endo.

Either way I just hope there are no more delays with this figure. We've all been strung out way too long.

I think it's fair to say, we agree on some things at least. :lol

Yeah, sculpted hurts the realism but rooted still doesn't look right to me anyway. And futzing is enough of a pain without dealing with hair. :lecture


There is still a chance that the reason for the delay is that HT had made changed to the sculpt.

If memory serves me right, the DX10 shown at the conventions last year was the prototype sculpt and we first found out about the change once the OMG pics came out.

Yes, the original proto was all we ever saw of the DX10, even within the last few months before its release. Other in hand pics came out before OMG's, but yes we saw no new proto or received any hint of the resculpt until we saw the production piece. It was a complete surprise.

We could be in for a surprise again after these delays. HT might have been looking at EB's bd sculpt and decided they need to resculpt again.

This is what I'm thinking. The EB sculpt was well received.

It is quite good and accurate, but I really don't mind HT taking artistic license with the depth of the wounds so they look less like prosthetics. I really like how the proto looks now, with the exception of a few details, so if the changes are minimal, I'm fine with that.

I actually only bugged HT about the left hand, that it shouldn't have flesh and blood on it. I didn't get a response though.

I don't mind the depth, either; it shows there's supposed to be muscle there. As long as they get the mechanical details and the shapes of the wounds right, I'm happy.

Yes, that would be cool if they worked on the shape of the wounds and the exposed endo head details. As much as people don't like the depth of the chest wound, I like it and think it works better since the chest plate would be behind quite a thick area due to the pecs.

I agree with this. In theory if it was living tissue over the endo skeleton then based on Arnies build, that's a lot of muscle slapped on the T-800.

Could just be unflattering lighting but the headsculpts do look rather soft on detail in those shots.

I have to agree with a-dev. I'm sure it's the lighting though. It's seems like a strong light is coming from top the display.

The only thing I'd say is that he looks a little young. Stil looks awesome though!

They certainly do. Exactly like the DX10. Lets hope it's the lighting. :lol

I think its the lighting, if you look at the first pic it looks much better with less direct lighting on it than the loose head which is full on bright light and looks much different. Whoever set these up apparently doesn't realize what unflattering lights can do for a figure in a bad way.

I said that as a joke, I was kinda hoping it would start that silly trend where people would jokingly state they canceled as well cause of one bad picture:monkey3
