In no particular order what I'm looking forward to:

-seeing the box for the first time
-seeing if the sculpts have been altered
-seeing if he has double jointed elbows like DX10
-seeing what kind of eye movement is in the full BD head
-seeing if it really does have the removeable scalp thing again
-seeing what the clothes are like, will I want to replace them
-posing with the liquid metal T-1000
-capturing the 'scanning' pose properly
-capturing various scenes with the steel rod
-making my SWAT shootout version (basically just giving him non-torn trousers

Am I missing anything?

Doing all that naked while holding a ray gun?

Well I used to order with Toys2 all the time. They're in Canada. And so I have what is to date my only order of DX13 with those guys. I've since stopped ordering there due to the high shipping costs of Canada post. The store itself is fantastic.

It's a good place. Is say most of my collection came from there. Last year, I stopped by to check it out in person. The storefront has many HT figures out on display.

I wonder if anything changed on this guy for the reason for delay ? Did they beef up the legs tweak the headsculpt or just have problem's with the light up eye feature? Also interested in what box art may be ? Another jacket black box with bullets hole's maybe ? All in time i guess. I think may change up my dx10's to prepare for this guy. The liquod t1000 is gonna eat up space but will probably be 1 of my favorite parts to this release.

Only reason I've ordered from sideshow is because I had some reward points to use. It came to 165 shipped plus what ever fed ex charges so will work out a little cheaper than the uk

It's a shame the smoke grenade launcher wasn't the exclusive.

Yeah. Or at least part of the set, but I'm not complaining.

I would have taken the smoke grenade over that stupid RP head any day. It wont even look right on the smooth liquid body. I know I'm in the minority here but they could have kept that whole liquid dude statue. Ill never use it. Depending on what that thing will go for on the aftermarket I may sell it.

I suspect you won't be able to give it away. I think its a fantastic addition but anyone who wants it will already have it by buying this figure. I myself am going to wind up with a whole bunch of spares.

I just put in a P.O. for this guy. I was going back and forth about it for the longest and watching T2 last night put me over the edge. I don't really care about having the EX version but he's was a favorite villain growing up so who knows.

I started collecting earlier this year and it's been Marvel/DC/Star Wars straight through so I'm glad I chose him to break up the pattern first.

my main gripe about the t1000 statue part it goes for 1 fight scene with arnolds arm in the thing wrestling with it. I would've liked it after he molds back together standing up liqoud glob look after the "Hasta la vista, baby part. but the frozen t1000 is favorite 1 before he gets blown to bits. I think is more memorable and iconic maybe next release if get another t1000 sometime.....

Or something like this i seen neca did long ago.

I'm in work so I can't count. Terminator dominates my collection obviously. Multiple T-800s, T-1000s and Sarah Connors. Terminator 4 figures and customs. Beyond that I've got Reeve Superman, Spiderman 3 red/blue, Wolverine (origins), Hulk, Keaton Batman, the 2 Nicholson Jokers, 89 Batmobile.

With the current direction my collection will consist of:


-T1 and T2 (considering selling my T4's but easy to say I'll sell them when I'm not looking at them)

-Robocop (have the new stuff ordered)

-Tim Burton Batman movies

-Various Superheroes I loved as a child

-Avengers (have the new Thor ordered, will wait for newer Cpt. America and others - not mad on many of the current figures)

-NECA Predator and Alien figures

And I've got a bunch of stuff I've been trying to sell.

HT has mentioned Commando and a possible 1/4 Dutch. This look would be cool as a figure, the biggest departure from Arnold's standard look aside from Mr. Freeze:

The 1/4 Batman looks so good, even the not-so-great photographers couldn't make it look bad. That was pretty unusual, but it could happen again. If it's like the DX10, just ignore Plastic Enemies' shots and wait for the Freaks' in hand pics.

What movie is this from?

As far as other Arnie figures go I don't think there is many more I'd get honestly. A new Dutch would be great! Not into Commando and I always thought Total Recall was horrid. True Lies was awesome but I have no need for a figure of that.

There are some that would have you think that the new film is a better take.

There is no saving such individuals.

The new film was many steps down. Everything in it was already done better. How do you top, "Consider that a divorce?" You can't.

What movie is this from?

As far as other Arnie figures go I don't think there is many more I'd get honestly. A new Dutch would be great! Not into Commando and I always thought Total Recall was horrid. True Lies was awesome but I have no need for a figure of that.

Sabotage. It's coming out in April.

Total Recall is probably my top Arnold movie below the Terminators. It's just full of awesome. It wasn't until recently that I really thought about how impressive the special effects were.

I love Total Recall, but I don't know if Id buy a figure of him from it.

T1
T2
Dutch
Conan

Are my top. Id probably buy a John Matrix and just to throw it for a loop Id buy a Jack Slater.

Nothing, an I mean nothing that has been remade that Arnold did first was ever better than the original, conan remake was garbabe, total recall remake I didn't even bother to see but was garbage I'm sure, Terminator Salvation was helped out by fake Arnold but can't hold a candle to the first two films, and predators film wasn't horrible but clearly predator film wins hands down. I especially didn't like when they had Royce do arnolds lines in the end fight:monkey4

Nope. I bought one of those and it ended up being a waste of money. First of all its not the same bike he had in the film, but I was willing to accept that. What I could not accept though was that it is bigger than my Tamiya Fatboy for the T-800. So, unless there's some other options for John's bike that I don't know about, anyone lucky enough to have a good John custom is SOL for his bike.

I agree. I usually avoid seeing reviews of stuff i have on preorder. Also avoid the in hand pics. I think the initial photoshoot is enough for me. Now i would like to have some element of surprise on the box, how things are laid out and the first hand experience of seeing that final sculpt.

It'd make the in-hand experience all the more exciting.

You would dig it. Seeing the box in your own possession for the first time. The surprise of potential changes.

Sometimes these OMG, Luka, Elljay, **** Po, etc. pics get old. I remember back in the TDK 2008 days when it was really just Agen getting a hold of it and taking shots. Most times, we'd experience the changes for ourselves.

Maybe but it'd mean waiting longer to see anything. Some say things like ''we've waited a year, whats an extra few weeks''. Ehhhh, not me. I've waiting long e-****ing-nough! I want to see new pics yesterday. So I'd be happy to see this come out in Hong Kong first. They wouldn't diminish my ''in-hand'' excitement ( :lol ) any significant amount. I want something to look at and to talk about while its on its way to me and not be bored out of my tree in the meantime. I'm spoilt like that.


Nice a-dev. You take good pics man. :duff

Thanks. They're nothing special though IMO. And the camera needs replacing I think, they look a bit foggy/hazy.

See, I'm the exact opposite.

I've been waiting for a Hot Toys T2 Battle Damaged T-800 since 2009 back when all these toy collectible companies were getting the T2 license. The NECA Battle Damaged was great and helped tide me over, but ever since the MMS 117, I've had a 1/6 Battle Damage figure in the back of my mind.

So that's roughly 4 years, give or take? Eh, what's another week? I'm sort of sick of the same time line for these things like, "oh there's an announcement, there's a teaser, there's spec/pics, here are the Asian collector's pics". I think the experience would be much better if it constantly changed up a bit for every release. I dig how it's going at the moment where it appears Asia won't be the first leak of them. I certainly don't always need an OMG fix or shirtless guy unboxing of a figure/character that's this important to me. It could end up being DX Indiana Jones bad and it would still be something I would have in-hand for myself. F the photographers, show me the money!

I thought for a few moments about avoiding pics before I get this in hand. Not happening. I enjoy the pro photography and I can't wait to see how it turned out. The thing that is less enjoyable for me is the nitpicking. It can be frustrating when someone points out something you didn't notice, but then becomes glaring. Sometimes I wonder if I'd see half the things I see if it weren't pointed out before I even get the figure.

You'd LOL if you knew my day job. Nothing to do with movie industry/production house is all I'll say. Actually Leon I didn't build that diorama, a chap called Maxx Replicas did...for someone else, who then sold it to me. I did however complete the elevator. The original diorama only had a tiny section of it and no ceiling. So that part was creative on my part if I do say so myself, probably the most creative thing I had done in years or have done since.

Barring actual defects in the figure, I find that many of the nitpicks fall away once a figure is in-hand--whether a result of simple excitement from finally getting something that's been teased forever (it's been almost a year-to-the-day since I pre-ordered DX13) or because community pictures never did a figure justice.

While not exactly a nitpick, I remember numerous complaints about the DX10 T-800's headsculpt; maybe it's an oversight on my part or Hot Toys' RDF, but it looks fine in person.

Trust me, I see the same things you do as an Arnold fanatic, so no worries. I'm just not as vocal about it because It's still very fresh and impressive to me, having taken the jump from NECA to this. I had Batman in mind when I made that comment since there's one thing that kind of bugs me about the 1/4 scale figure that I'm not entirely sure I would have noticed without "help."

[/SIZE] :lol

Well, that elevator ceiling and some of the stuff inside is the best part. Dont worry, i cant laugh at anyones day job as mine is the most boring of all. These figures are the only bit of saviours i have. I buy a lot of figures almost one a month. People say how can i afford, but thats cause i paid of my car and dont intend to buy one for 2-3 years so this is my window. Post 2 odd years i will be back to the grind of day to day life. But getting into custom figures has now thrown this "Figures ilo car" game out of the chart cause with one custom i can afford 3 months car payments if not more. Plus the ever increasing cost of living in california is giving me a slap each and every day... :)

Coming back to the point... i like that diorama, very innovative! ... I am actually a big fan of dioramas, and wish they came with every dx figure! ... But hot toys has to act cheap eh!!!...

This thread has been pretty tame compared to some others, but am I missing something here? He gives us a heads up and a few days later he posts a bunch of high quality pics of the final product. What's the problem?

True. He can only post the pics when HT allows him to, otherwise, presumably his privileges would be rescinded. So, as ever, its them we should blame for the waiting.


A. Dev... I hate you sir! ;) ... I cant get over that diaorama and keep coming back looking at those pics. I can easily say one of the best stuff i have seen on this forum... Bravo!

Generally cheaper and faster for me to get things from HK.

Which is one reason why Rory and I want Hong Kong to get it first. The other being that pics will come sooner.

I think any post of yours in the thread of an imminent HT figure is going to be taken as a signal.

I take it then that you don't yet have the figure.

May be they can give a PS with a bike as dx. The bike can be used for other figures. I know the harley wont ever happen but can surely hope. Or they can make a double set! With PS + first version. That would make a good set and worth buy!

I'm not a fan of the dx line due to pers system, however some have come out ok, and Rambo could still be good as a dx cause they could make a hair helmet instead of a seam splitting the head in two. As long as the eyes don't have thick eyelids it might come out fine that way, but yes with the mms there's little chance for a goof up.

My wants are more towards MMS for every release. Smaller boxes (slightly), no PERS and for the most part cheaper (not always the case). Accessory wise, as we've seen with the Mime Joker, even DX figures can be light and with MMS, like with the recent Barney Ross figure, loaded.

TL;DR - I choose MMS over DX.

Hmmm. I suppose Rambo might get away with ''Helmet hair'' like Hulk does. You'd need an overhanging fringe (bangs). Wouldn't work on all characters though.

I have the QS001 in hand and it blows away the rest of my collection. I want a Terminator in that size. I figured the PS Terminator would be the one that would introduce me to 1/4, but Batman turned out way too good to ignore, especially compared to the DX12. I had to decide to either stick to 1/6 or go with the best version.

Leon 911
11-12-2013, 02:50 PM
1/6 please. No 1/4 for me. I will give it a pass if its 1/4 even though that would mean chopping a part of my heart and crushing it under my shoes. I have resisted every 1/4 scale. My view is they wont make 1/4. They usually make it to better what enterbay does and take the war home to them. But they also usually secure a 1/6 for the same, so am sure 1/6 will come first.

Lastly, i like dx cause of below reasons:

1) packaging
2) accessories
3) sometimes 2 headsculpts so for a lil more investment spend we can get 2 instead of 1
4) and main reason dioramas, i loved what they gave with dx04, dx11, godfather (altho was not dx but dx like) ... So am hoping it comes with a nice prison diorama! ...

As for pers am happy with them on joker and on brucelee, as for dx10 i think its the neckline which was more of a problem and that can be avoided as seen is dx11 and dx4

My personal view is that the dx12 sucked big time, that's why the comparison is not fair... I know people loved it but i was trying to get it and more pics i saw the more i disliked it.

If Hot Toys is still doing a Police Shootout T1 Terminator since the announcement, I hope it's the exact opposite of the QS 001/DX 12 situation.

I hope they make and put out the 1/4 Police Shoot Out first, then after a couple of months we get a 1/6 one.

That really bugged me how the DX 12 and QS 001 had specs/pics at roughly the same time frame but they ended up rushing the DX 12 and not improving anything while the QS got a complete overhaul. Other than the body and Bale head, the DX 12 was awful. There's no reason why they couldn't have produced atleast the cowl head, sonar head and faceplates for the 1/6 version with a little more time.

Agreed. I was disgusted when I heard it beat DX09 in a FOTY poll. Nolan hype, nothing more.

Trouble with that is while you wait for the 1:6 you might find yourself caught up in people's hype for the 1:4 and buy it. Maybe not though, you do seem to be more disciplined than me.

I came close with the SDCC pics of the Batman and then when people were showing them in hand, but I resisted. All I had to do was think back to that original MMS 71 Batman that everyone loved . . . until it was too fat and unsightly compared to the superior DX 02 Batman . . . until it was too derpy and awkward looking with those eyes compared to the "perfect", Figure of the Year DX 12. Dot, dot, dot.

I basically sat myself down and realized that if I bought the 1/4, I'd feel that same regret I had with the Enterbay Terminator. The only real urge I was getting was from the headsculpt/mouth plate improvement (which I think Hot Toys has proven they can achieve in 1/6) and the hyping of others. Was $500 worth dropping on a couple of cool headsculpts? Nah, I'd rather buy multiple figures elsewhere.


The hardest one was the Battle Damaged 1/4 Terminator. I went back and forth on that one for weeks. I figure if I can pass on a 1/4 BD Terminator and a 1/4 Batman, I could hold out until a proper 1/6 Police Shootout. That's why I hope Hot Toys pumps the 1/4 out one like clock work (their announcement was a freakin' T2 mock up :lol), and puts more work on the 1/6, if they do one. By that time though, 1/6 figures will be $350 and 1/4, $600. :lol

I think 1/4 is just to clog enterbay strategy ... They get just too big and i live in an apartment home. Honestly dont have space for 1/4. Basically there is no stopping then. Why not all figures 1:1 amazing details and all... Basically have houses full of some 1:1 .... For me its 1/6 cause they are just about the right size to enjoy the details and yet find a balance between art and toys...

QS001 is no longer good enough before its even in many people's hands. It wouldn't be so bad if I was incapable of seeing how they improve it. However I do see the improvement which dims my view of the stock figure. And this happens with every single TDK trilogy figure. One loses patience. Over here in the Terminator threads all we do is swap clothes or something, stuff that anyone can do. Over there they've got all the experts working around the clock to fix all these inaccuracies and then taking commissions that dominate the customs section and nothing else gets a look-in. Except with Commando (our Terminator guy who did the Gargoyles, endo-eye T1 mods etc), and Elvis1976 who always does a huge variety of stuff. Rorywan also offered a variety of mods but he made the mistake of having Ledger Joker be one of those things and so they all descended and that's all anyone wants. :lol http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt28/a-dev/Funnies/user3244_pic21354_1325691276.gif (http://s594.photobucket.com/user/a-dev/media/Funnies/user3244_pic21354_1325691276.gif.html) Eventually he's gonna have to just quit because they will keep coming.

Yeah you're probably right then. That EB BD T-800 would have been a major test with that headsculpt. If you managed to resist that you'd surely manage to resist the 1:4 T1.

Maybe it's just me, but the 1/4 Batman feels very sturdy. Couple that with the fact that the set is absolutely loaded with everything I could ask for in a Bale Batman (missing the damn empty cowl though), I'm having just as much fun with it as I have had with the DX10. Meaning, I take it out of the cabinet constantly to look over the details and I've reposed it 3 times in the week or so I've had it.

There are a number of reasons why I won't purchase EB's offerings (though I really want them to win me over), and one of those reasons is that they really don't look like a lot of fun. It's probably just the combination of things that scare me away from them that gives me that feeling though. I'm not sure.
