Why is Jor El out already? OMG has just launched a photo thread for him. I didn't realise he was imminent. Certainly not moreso than DX13.

maybe they finally realised that they can't wait too long with figures from a mediocre movie, or all interest will be gone.

:lol you might be right. And particularly with side-characters from such a movie. Even if it is Russell Crowe.

I am wondering who is buying that, but when I went to its thread apparently a lot of people buying it. I know each have their own taste but to me, i donno... With gazillion figures out there it would be pretty low on my radar. But like i said am sure many that i like may be pretty low on others radar...

True brother. While some may think MOS was weak. Others including myself really liked the movie. And I'm getting Superman and Zod figures. I feel the same when I see people get all pumped for guys like Captain America or Thor. While they are cool. To me, they are not cool enough for me to buy them.

Completely agree. Infact after my post i went on facebook and saw the pics. The darn head sculpt looks awesome. I am just not a mos fan but that russle crow sculpt is very accurate. The only figure i plan to buy from that is faora as and when it comes as i think there are not too many women figures out there so i snag one when a good one comes along...

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
It's all about common sense - & your budget, really. I've always had lots of one, & not much of the other.. :lol

You wanna talk about disciplined? I wrote the book. I've managed a couple of figures per year so far; based on true wants, what's coming & budget. This is more a general comment now, but hype seems to be a potent drug around here.. & many get seduced by it - time & time again. :huh

Just collect to enjoy.. not to 'jones', or feel you're.. investing. That **** I said about getting Mime Joker.. probably won't happen to be honest. :lol

About Mime Joker - in the short term at least anyway.. I do want to get that figure eventually. :lol

Seriously though, I often read folks' posts in here about being tied up in POs - & half the time they're just 'keeping up' with the release schedule - wtf is that **** about?

It really is an asset, if one can focus on what they really love.. & just ignore the rest. It's of course a challenge when there are multiple licenses that you like to weigh up etc, but I guess exercising a bit of clarity wherever possible isn't as easy for some, as it is for others. :lol

The sculpt itself or the quality of the final product? I was worried about the quality upon seeing OMG's pics. To be honest I think he phoned those ones in (compared to his usual standards), maybe didn't have much personal enthusiasm for Jor El. Can't blame him. Looked alright in Jingobell's set though.

Yeah, people love to throw that "looks nothing like" **** around a lot if the sculpt ranges anywhere from 10% to 50% off. Like you, while I think the eyes are off and some other things you definitely know who it is.

I didn't get a 14 day notice. Does Sideshow send different emails to people who pay in full as opposed to those who use flex pay? It would kind of make sense since people paying in full have to have more funds available.

The way i look at it is that... For the demand for this and for what importance (or less importance than lead characters) it carries ... Its a pretty good sculpt. I mean while great even cat woman and superman prototype sculpt are marginally better than this. (Unless you have a great photographer) ... So my view is its pretty good for the cost, and for it not being a lead character. Hot toys has given us some mediocre sculpts for some great figures and lead characters. So am sure mos fans shld be happy unless they do screw up the superman actual product.

Nah, at this point I think it's more Bale Batman/Nolan Batman in general than anything else. Just look at those threads. Only the DX 11 one manages to have any activity. Sure, there's the occasional, "HOW MUCH FOR THAT 2,000 DOLLAR CUSTOM JOKER", but those have been years in the making by the same dozen or so people.

You just request that through one of their agents right? Because when I did it with Endo, whoever I spoke to didn't attach it to my order and I had to request it again the day it came in.

I've requested it through their contact form and through chat. So far, no issues.

I don't care about double boxing but it is nice to see when someone takes the time to do it. Like AE, no charge at that. SSC could give a **** less. It looked like my Batman TF EX was kicked across the country.

Eventually SS will be the main site to order HT from. The other AD won't be offering anymore discounted prices since SS is limiting the amount of HT. That's why BBTS sells out quickly and now CSC is selling out quicker. It's unfortunate but ultimately we will probably only order from SS.

cplhicks
11-14-2013, 02:15 PM
SS is eventually going to move to the point where you can only get it from them.

It is never a good idea to have a distributor (you know to distribute things) that sells the items direct.

They control the supply and someday they will just say that they are only going to sell everything themselves and all HT's will become SS exclusives.

The writing has been on the wall for some time now.

Exclusives aside, I'm just warning you, don't be surprised if the regular doesn't ship out to you until December or the New Year. That's what Sideshow typically does. The exclusive batches go out first, then the regulars. I fear you won't be getting your 14 day notice anytime soon.

Agree with as many figures they are pushing out . Jor-el Amazing collapsable Spiderman. Now IM3 The Mechanic is out for early release in December. I like buying from BTTS some times over Sideshow. You pay in full something . They give you fast updates. Sideshow you have to wait a few days to get anything. They may have improved the web site but the system still sucks.

I cannot wait to finally get this one, I just ordered the Enterbay BD, because that one looks too good to pass up, and will hopefully be the only 1/4 scale I need. Once I have this one, I'll hopefully be almost done with collecting. Just need Robocop and that's it!

Until they decide to release Batman Returns, Back to the Future...or some other childhood movie. Or redo Predator Arnie, Rambo, Rocky, Commando...I might be collecting for a while actually:slap

OK, fair enough. Although I don't think OMG is himself a T-fanatic, if memory serves when he got the DX10 he admitted he wasn't quite sure how to dress him for accuracy etc etc. He wouldn't necessarily be able to say ''oh yeah the full BD head has been reworked and is accurate now'' etc etc

As far as I know they send him all these figures for free to photograph them, knowing that his pics have helped them sell. Presumably if he posts pics before they authorise him to he might lose that privilege.

I know a-dev has said in the past that he wished that there was more customizers for Terminator figures but it will be good to get a figure in hand that will not need any modding done to it unlike the Nolan Batman figures.

I'm not having a pop at them as I have done mods to all my Nolan figures but there is something nice about getting a figure and keeping it stock.

:peace Funny I wouldn't care if this were any other figure.

A John Matrix in shopping mall attire + extra combat head and gear would be high up there, but this wins because of the machinery and robotics.

I wonder if I buy 4 DX13 bases and put four of them into a square, if it would look like a graited floor. Then I might be able to display the damn chrome golfer, put a severed T-800 arm in the hole

I would love to see some changes but i doubt they would do that. My personal view is hot toys was facing production challenges due to high volume of figures etc. my speculation that they signed up another team / factory / production house whatever you want to call it and that's why we are seeing faster turn around on other products as well.. Like jor el, robocop (first installment is triggered for people etc) ...

I would love to be wrong as i feel lot of scope to better the bd on the face to come any close to enterbay and i let go of enterbay as I was hoping they made improvements. but now my worry is that it was just a delay cause of bandwidth challenges at the production end....

What do you think of the PERS eyes? How does it work with the electronics? I take it there's only one joystick for one eye like Hulk, QS Batman, etc.

That's great news. Already having the Enterbay T-800, I really want to pose this with the semi BD head. I wasn't really feeling the damage on the prototype (and as mentioned numerous times was very inaccurate of course), so this gives me hope. :) And like a-dev says, great news about the double jointed elbow as well, can't wait to do the "scanning for the T-1000" pose. :blissy
