Yeah I think we can be pretty confident that will be 99% as good as the prototype. No worries about puffy clothes, ugly PERS or any stand-out accuracy issues.

Could be worse, yes. But the detail levels did regress a bit on DX10 compared to MMS117, setting aside accuracy of likeness. So far DX13 looks to be staying at that lower level of detail unless the final product comes out and surprises us. (talking about skin texture particularly)

I'm assuming the main buyer's of the Iron Man stuff is the Asian market. They seem to go BatS*it crazy for Iron Man.

Honestly, I defended Hot toys at first with them making a number of Suits from a business stand point, then I found out they wanted to make all 42. Not to mention, 2 different versions of Tony Stark, and some dude that walked on screen for five seconds.:thwak

Yeah, Kyle Reese needs to be remade. Not even that, but give him his trench coat look like he had for, I dunno, about 98% of the movie!

It a lot of ways It's a curse that Hot Toys got so popular with Marvel and the Dark Knight licenses, cause now it's all about New blockbusters, and we won't see very many Classic characters anymore. I'm hoping some company will start picking up these classic liscenes and making some quality figures.

They're a new company, so market differentiation would likely be the initial reason - there are a lot of Pacino fans out there who haven't been well serviced by the other companies. I'm sure Pacino does not feature heavily in their mid/long-range planning though.

Very good actually. Its pretty much done, I'm just waiting on a matching set of gloved hands with at least one trigger finger (DX10s) and a DX10 body. I've decided to use the MMS02 T1 jacket but I don't like how it fits on the larger MMS136 body. I also need to attach an extra magazine to the AR-18.

Ideally I'd also have at least a head repaint. One area where my old PS figure will be superior to my new one is it had the endo eye and the repaint.

Since I've been thinking back to that T1 figure tonight, I can totally get your excitement, even though I don't feel the same toward T2 figures. If HT did the police assault version with the same level of options and awesomeness that they're doing for T2 Arnold here, I would flip out.

I think the only figure I'd go more crazy for than Police Station T-800 is if Hot Toys Made a Conan figure. It's my personal favorite Arnold film.

I'm wondering what I'll do if HT only makes a 1/4 version of the Police Station Version. I'd probably still buy it.

Oh that's right yeah. Its a strange one. And the thing about the teargas launcher is that its a part of the film a lot of people remember from the T2 trailers, the shot of Arnie bursting out the Cyberdyne doors, BDed face and the teargas launcher in hand. So its a tad frustrating they didn't make it.

Thanks. And I'll be happy for us all if/when they show more T1 figures (not forgetting Reese...or even a Tech Noir 2.0 if they felt inclined, no one thought they'd remake MMS117). Something else that gives hope is the new Robocop figures - a classic film and license revisited.

karamazov80
09-07-2013, 09:15 PM
Yeah, Robocop is another one, though they were hinting at that for awhile, and there was a new movie to capitalize on. I think dchung's Reese could totally satisfy my needs, but I wouldn't hesitate to get an HT figure (preferably a 2-in-1) if they did it right, and nailed the likeness.

I'm seriously thinking about getting that Enterbay batman. Mostly, cause I want a begins suit in my collection, and the rubber issue from HT has always worried me, especially on the pre dx12 bale Batmans. Not to mention, I can get it cheaper than the Hot Toys Toy Fair EX Batman.

I agree though, There's something about Sixth scale figures that I can't quite put my finger on. It's like goldilocks zone, not to short, or too tall, just right. However, I'd strongly consider buying a PS version in 1/4 if that was my only option.

Yeah, Robocop is another one, though they were hinting at that for awhile, and there was a new movie to capitalize on. I think dchung's Reese could totally satisfy my needs, but I wouldn't hesitate to get an HT figure (preferably a 2-in-1) if they did it right, and nailed the likeness.

With Hot Toys, getting all the "Fad" summer blockbusters, It doesn't seem like they will make too many characters from classic Sci-fi and action films of the past. Not with Marvel churning out movies left and right now.

dChung has gone quiet on that Reese, no posts in awhile. Hopefully it goes ahead.
That's how his releases tend to go though. He's primarily one guy with one tailor as I understand it, and right now he's focusing on getting the Running Man stuff out I think, but I feel reasonably optimistic that Reese will happen.

If HT was going to release both a 1/4 and 1/6 PS shootout, I honestly don't know which one I'd go for at this point. I have 3 (soon to be 4) 1/6 Terminators, so 1/6 makes more sense but 1/4 would be amazing.

Yeah, it would be very tempting. Same thing with a 1/4 Dutch, but I'd rather have 1/6 I think. Space wise.

The issue for me on 1/4 is that, it gives undue attention to a certain character in my collection. To me each figure i have is kept with caution as i sold most of mine that i dint feel were equal in preference or were mere pressure buys. So, now i like to stick to 1/6 cause one step towards 1/4 will follow with a few too many and that means a whole different budget, space and planning. I have no hatred towards the scale, its just that i cannot plan for that kinda spend. It was very tough resistng the endo in 1/4, and BD t800 and having done that i feel confident i will resist every!
But for those who have space n dollars... Why not!

I've already done that. The options that I found are DX07 Luke's sabre gripping hands or Enterbay Leon hands...Leon also had a left-handed trigger finger hand - quite hard to get. Most companies assume right-handed gun usage. T-1000 uses his left hand in the Galleria.

I'm not worried about skin tone so much - people's hands can be a different colour than their face depending on temperatures and what they're using their hands for etc. And the hands are far enough away from the face that your brain allows for the difference anyway.

well, my point of view is that there are sequels that spread the original splendor and there are sequels that are based on stupid crap rejected while making the original.
T2 is the second type, if you studied its history (but mostly the T1 scenario history).
that must have done its job on Brad Fiedel's work who didn't give a **** about washouts and made some crappy soundtrack only because he was paid money.

It depends on the terms of the license. EB could have secured an exclusive 1/4 scale T2 license before 1/4 was on HT's radar, so they could have it tied up for a number of years.

But yes, there was never a question about the T-1000's scale.

I think enterbay is chasing 1/4 cause they couldnt bucket 1/6. With that scenario it could be possible. Also, i think thats the main reason they are doing 1/4 not cause its really lucrative. 1/6 and 1/4 licenses can reside and hence if thats 1/4 we could still see a t1000 1/6 sometime soon by hot toys. Or at least i am hoping ... :(

I wondered if there had been any alterations to the proto so I compared it today by holding my DX10 sculpt up to the computer monitor. It's still the same down to each individual wrinkle.
The one thing that's apparent in some pics - is the width of the head.

That hurts the likeness quite a bit, I feel..

It most certainly looks better than the DX10, in my opinion, however it's till the prototype I'm assuming. Have to wait for in-hand pictures.

I am wondering why would they do massive changes to the headsculpt from dx10. In my view the only work they will do is the BD part and may be minor paint changes to match the effect. But pretty much it would be the dx10 sculpt. They were not made years apart and am sure hot toys will use economies of scale to achieve the objective of keeping their mfg cost lower.

Long answer short, the head sculpt fundamentally (structurally) wont be different from dx10. At least thats what i believe!

Exactly. They had already spent extra time and money to resculpt the DX10. No company on earth would turn around and resculpt again an approved final likeness like that. It's absurd to think so, and completely contradictory to the timeline, decades old established processes, and basic logical thinking. I try to educate to no avail though. Belief trumps reality.

The picture on the previous page is awesome looking in my opinion.

I would say that it looks a little bit aged compared to the DX10 head sculpt which would be a good thing but maybe a bit of the youthfulness on the DX13 is lost on the sculpt due to the BD.

Still hasn't swayed me to get him yet.

That is my only complaint with the DX10 was the youngish looking Arnold.

He does look great with the shades on and even with the shades off he looks great but just a tad too youthful.

I haven't got that urge yet to buy him but I wouldn't like to pay the inflated price that will happen in the future.

To be fair, people in ancient Greece and Rome weren't sculpting 1/6 scale figures of Achilles and Julius Caesar :lol But I see what you mean. Still, there is no such thing as a perfect sculpt. Even the best head sculpt is not 100% accurate, unless of course, they use a digital scan of the person or actor.

Cheers P., I wasn't trying to call you out (for an argument), I was genuinely curious. Yeah its not definitive. There really hasn't been one that is as close to perfection as I would like except the Enterbay BD. Everything else has been flawed in some annoying way.

MMS117/136 - squashed, overly square face, pinhead effect compared to body
DX-10 - Hideous neck and head/neck connection especially in profile view, PERS detracts from frontal view, hair too round and puffy from some viewpoints
DX-13 - based on DX10 and thus will probably carry over its flaws
NECA - nice hair and head-shape, nice sculpted neck that actually looks specific to Arnold as opposed to some generic, undetailed horse neck but funny looking mouth area, lower quality overall etc

they have posted a T2 headsculpt with lame glasses on it and with a photo of perfectly made AR-180 and SPAS-12, saying it's a future 1/4 police massacre version.

I dunno why HT started getting into 1/4 stuff. Purely just for the $$$$

I'm sorry for this rant ....

In my opinion They kick enterbays *** when it comes to 1/6 scale. I am by no means an artist but to bring something with the level of detail they put into their product at such small scale is fantastic. Only reason enter bay do the 1/4 stuff is the just can't compete in the quality of sculpting, paint app and tailoring hot toys produce. I don't mean to offend anyone by this. It's just my opinion. :-)

Now EB has done some decent 1/4 scale figures hot toys probably wanna take that crown too.

Rather than try take over the 1/4 scale and add another workload on top of the back log of stuff. Let enterbay get on with whatever they do and focus on hitting home runs on the licences they have but we havent even had sniff at - Back to the future, batman returns to name two.

Here is my view. EB got into 1/4 as they could get parallel licenses for joker, terminator etc. 1/6 were already negotiated and signed with hot toys. Now, many people (not as many as 1/6 bought the 1/4). The only catch was that they were expensive and also size issues. But if the cost could be brought lower there was quite a big market if not as big as 1/6.

Now we need to understand HT strategy. HT wants to be a holistic player in the market. They want in on everything and not making any 1/4 would completely brand them as absent in that space. To protect turf and to ensure that they are considered a master in every scale or at least thats what their aim is... they are making some in 1/4. Tomorrow if some tidal wave causes everyone to go crazy over 1/4 it would not catch HT off gard. Thats all thats there to it. Same is the reason for a zillion iron men. Create an entry barrier and expand across scales to ensure end to end offering.

All of the above. And it just annoys me that they didn't use the actual movie endoskeleton as the basis for their endoskeleton from 'The Terminator'. What they gave us is closer to Terminator 2 and it isn't even a perfect match for that. So its just a generic endoskeleton really. Amazing engineering and whatnot but we expected nothing less than that after the 1:6 versions and the T-600s.

I was trying to say that when they step on each others toes and try to damage each other with the 'you made this, so we will counter with that' bull**** then they take their eye of the ball. Concentrate on your own stuff and if one company makes something then who cares.

We choose who we buy from and a company v company war which is competing for our money usually means that there is only one left standing.

I would hate there to be just one company to buy from.

On the other hand, I can forgive T3 some of its faults because it didn't try to take itself all that seriously. T: Salvation pretended to be this epic dramatic Terminator film, but was just average and forgettable at best. . . . .I can't believe I'm sorta-kinda defending T3 here.

The best scene in T3 was cut from the movie, in the deleted scenes section, where Arnie has a southern accent and a little guy says in Arnie's voice, "we can fix it." Made me LMAO when nothing in the actual movie did. But every scene in T3 is still better than TS, which is a godawful dull and dreary film. T3 was like a low-rent horror sequel with a big budget. TS was a wannabe epic drama with no sense of realism or character development. At least T3 tried to provide cheesy entertainment. TS was just a turgid bore.

Terminator I will buy by default. I guess Robocop is the same although I'm not sure yet if I'll buy the EB 1:4. Everything else goes through a bit of evaluation. Does it tick the ''sufficiently iconic'' box. Does it tick the ''childhood nostalgia'' box. Do I have other items from that movie that the prospective purchase would go with. Ripley ticked all those boxes. (I collect the NECA Alien and Aliens stuff, I've got HT Dallas and Powerloader) And she's one of only about 4 female characters I'm ever likely to have in my collection, the others being Sarah Connor, Cameron (T:TSCC) and Pfeifer's Catwoman.

Same here. I thought about sticking to one line, can't do it. My whole 1/6 collection consists of Batman,
Terminator and Star Wars. I also have a few select horror figures. I'm also trying to stay away from periphery characters. No filler.

You guys are doing a good thing, my collection while sticks to a couple of lines deep, it also has a considerable breadth... The reason is that i like too many characters from too many movies. Its been very expensive so far and i plan to sell out some stuff or cut on new buys. Its a bit tough to do both.

you're neither a terminator figure nor a figure producer, so your opinion doesn't mean anything to me in building my mind about a terminator figure. do you understand that? )

There's no need to be rude mate, I'm not trying to change anybody's mind here or trying to force my opinions on someone else, so I don't know what your problem is exactly. I simply asked you what you didn't like about the figure, and what you think was wrong with it (as I said, I'm no Terminator expert, so the inaccuracies don't really stand out to me as much as they would to someone like you).

oh, and as for the old, outdated, ****ty HT endoskeleton remake - its problem is that it is fully incorrect AND ugly, but that's a problem for its buyers, not mine.
wanna check? google T1 endoskeleton movie props anytime :)
everything is incorrect from the head to its toes, literally to the toes which are even worse/uglier/more unnatural than on the old variant. i mean shapes of details and engineering of connections, nothing else - but there's nothing else in making a right/wrong mechanical toy.
biggest examples: back shape (flat on the toy / round on a movie skeleton), size of "metal bones" of it, feet shape, forearms hydraulic shape and direction (have you ever seen them being wider near a hand than near an elbow???), chest fillings, size comparison between shoulder-arm bones, chest section and groin section... well it's a too long list to continue if you just don't see it.
p.s. even if you don't see the difference between movie and HT skeleton. there's an example.
compare old HT robocop to new HT robocop. there was a HUGE work done to make it closer to the movie, really huge, just a list of differences would take a page to name.
you can google both figures.
see the difference?
that was what i awaited from this new skeleton: total rework.
all they did was making the old skeleton (crappy and outdated) look worse.
and people who say it looks like the movie version seem totally blind to me, i don't know why they even bother buying anything from HT if their level of expectation meets a five-years-old level figure (that HT did the first time and made worse the second time) with pleasure.
aaaand how should i treat blind people who claim to be normal? :D

I'm trying to keep my collection down to just what I absolutely love. At first I had a completest attitude, but now I just aim to buy the characters I absolutely love best. Some characters I thought I loved, but ended up feeling flat in my collection so they got the boot. For instance, I love Bruce Lee, his story, his movies, but the DX04 just stood in the same pose for months on end and didn't really fit in my collection.

Generally, I stick to the Nolan Batman franchise, Predator 1 and 2, Terminator (1, 2, and I already admitted I would buy T3 versions) and anything else Arnold.

Thanks for that. I guess you really know your terminators, lol. I'll be honest I've never paid that much attention to the real thing and analyze it in that much detail/do direct comparisons with the HT version, but I did google the T1 puppet and you're right, it is different. I don't have the HT Endo anymore, but from what I remember it did look different. The HT figure looks more like the T3 endo:

I guess I never really noticed before because for me, the differences don't really stand out that bad unlike a real person, where if the likeness is off, it is immediately noticeable, but with a robot, if it looks 90% like the real thing that's good enough for most people as it's instantly recognizable.

because even T3 skeleton still reminds of T2 skeleton still reminds of T1 skeleton, and mainly in shapes of big details and small detail units.
just now there's actually not much difference in HT and Neca except for the quality, but quality does not replace shapes.

No but i think its time now, they just did some promo on the premium format BD... So i am sure its gonna be any time now, but we all have been wrong before. If it goes the way its going though - late oct or nov is more likely.

It's been delayed to August 2029. It's going to take that long before HT stops monopolizing factory/design/effort/money for Iron Man.

They did the same with the 1/4 Batman. I feel like they are trying to get me to cancel my EX waitlist, haha. I don't know why they're regular is $10 more than the EX...

Is the DX 13 made of mimetic Polly Alloy? ;) Bend over :rotfl:rotfl

On a more serious note this came up in a Terminator book that followed the Cameron timeline. At the end of the last book it shows up what went on at the time displacement facility.

John Connor asks for a volunteer damn well knowing who is going to put his hand up. Reese specifically asks if he can take future weapons to which the scientist guy tells him "Not unless you can fit it up your @ss" He than goes on to explain how only living tissue can go through.

John sends Reese through and than he sends Uncle Bob through and than blows the place. The best part of this scene is that Sarah is still alive and joined John on the mission. She hides herself out of sight of Reese and watches him leave for the past in order to save her life. Such a bittersweet moment.

All I have ever wanted is a movie based on the future war scenes depicted T1 and T2. I don't know why this is so hard.

When I heard T4 was going to be in the future I was super excited until I saw the trailer. Warthog planes, helicopters flying around blowing up Endos with small arms projectile weapons (in which the last 3 movies spent telling us were freaking useless!)

I never knew what Arnold said to John in that scene! haha

Metal Poly Alloy, is it? Interesting.... I haven't seen the films in a while, maybe they explained this or maybe someone could explain it to me really quick. If Kyle is John's father and dies during the time he is sent back to protect Sarah, does that mean it is a constant loop/circle? I guess I'm wondering, how does John exist in Kyle's world in the time before he is sent back? Does that make sense? I might just be over-thinking but I was always wondering that.
