It's not the pics; go back and look at OMG's photos of Noland from Predators, one of their last figures before the flat waxy thing started happening; Hot Toys process changed, not OMG's photos.

DX10 looked bad in OMGs pics and I don't think it looks nowhere near as bad in hand. I think the same will be said for the DX13. I just don't think OMG pics are the end all, be all of what a product looks like.

Look at it this way, soon there will be a t1000, then police shoot out version, and then may be another t1... This circle is never ending so buy spares, to use the other head sculpt, only thing you will miss out is the battle damage body. .. And that in any case wont be as accurate for the semi damaged sculpt as he wasn't beaten so hard till the arm got stuck. So, use spare body, and pants... Save dollars...

Headsculpt would be better today. Just look at how the excellent DX13 prototype turned into the even more excellent sculpts we ended up getting it. You better believe a sculpt from 09/10 could be done better today.

Make a pretzel man T-1000 and provide a new clean headsculpt with it.

I do not understand the Enterbay comparison that is going around. Apples and Oranges. We all know it is a different scale. I think both are great and we are all fortunate to have a BD T-800 available in both scales.

:exactly: The Enterbay Vs Hot Toys debate got old about ten minutes after I joined this forum.

Different scales. Move on people.

Yeah, then it comes out and years from now we look at it and say, "it could be better". Thing is, we've never had a 1/6 Battle Damaged T-800 before. Of course it should be up to date as far as standards go. But then what? It's 2015, sculpts have improved. Should we get another Battle Damaged version of Uncle Bob? Okay, it's 2018 that old 2015 sculpt is obsolete now, time for a 3.0? Before you know it, 2013 will be "four years ago" before we know it.

We finally got the Battle Damaged T-800 we've been wanting for the past 4 to 5 years. Now we all seem to want a redo of past figures. Where does it end? If things are constantly improving each year (and they are), none of our characters will ever match up to previous ones. Say they make a new regular Uncle Bob, boom, it's better looking than the battle damage. After that, they make a new T-1000 that blows away all the T-800s in terms of likeness and details. Now all the others look "off". Do you really want to keep doing this forever?

It's not like they're so bad that they look like these,

Even the Hot Toys T-1000 sausage finger and DX 10's PERS aren't anywhere near those. Everything can be improved until the end of time, sure. But do you really want to buy more versions after all the money you put into your collection? You really can't wait until the day where half of the things you bought are "obsolete"?

The only figure I seem to NEVER tire of buying is Batman. I think this is my last Terminator figure. I they made a T1 Kyle Reese, then I would be on the hook again but the constant rehashes of the same figure gets old. I even have some buyers remorse for buying the last DX Bats & DX Ledger Joker. Not that they weren't/aren't great figures, but for the increased price I don't think they were enough improvements to justify me spending what I did on them. When DX 10 rolled around, I passed on the figure for the same reason and just bought the weapons instead.

In the words of Han Solo 'hey....its me!'

Yeah I'd keep buying Terminator figures. Everything else can be one and done for all I care but with Terminator I'm all in for improvements. I can only buy what they choose to make so that would keep me in check. Terminator isn't Iron Man (unfortunately)

Well we must remember not everyone buys everytime. Also there are many people, including youngsters who jump on to this band wagon as new buyers. many kids may not be able to afford one now and many may even see the movies and then want one. Imagine if these figures were made in 1990s and then no one ever made any. So i am sure for iconic characters it makes sense to make them again, not like every month but am sure every 3 -4 years there is no harm. If they made a jor el like every 2 years i will surely have an issue. But imagine as technology improves may be there will be better back drops, more features, enhancements and value adds based on cost economies and more importantly many artists would also like to take a stab at their own version of what is done before. For iconic figures i am sure there will always be demand (existing and new buyers) value and also scope of enhancements - so definitely makes sense to do it. Lastly, people are ready to buy 2-3 of the same one now, so why not different versions with more and more improvements rather than same ones stalking the shelves (which is also ok if someone is a one series collector)

I'd say we practically got the DX treatment the first time around... he came with so much stuff it's actually crazy to think he was under $200 when he was released considering the bare bones $220 will get you nowadays.

I don't see any reason to revisit the T-1000 at all...

Oh, I agree. He was loaded and a bargain compared to today's prices. DX basically means PERS anymore and I think the original release with an upgraded regular sculpt with PERS and maybe the donut sculpt that came with the Sarah T1000 with PERS would make an awesome set.

I'm actually surprised the T-1000 sculpt that comes with this is completely new. The profile, nose, chin etc. are different and everything. I mean, we know it's new considering there isn't a neck post, but I didn't think it would be an all new sculpt. I expected just a retool.

I have a feeling the T-1000 is in the works. The current T-1000 might look dated next to the DX13. I purchased T-1000 at BBTS around two years ago for $170 (the good days). The thought of a new T-1000 with the accessories it came with today.....wow be pricey!

DeathAsylum and I were talking about that sculpt yesterday and were wondering if that head would end up getting recast in fleshtone and sold by headplay or one of those type companys.

No, it's not a new head sculpt. It actually looks exactly like the original T 1000 prototype head sculpt. If you look at the ears, you can tell it's the same HS from the original proto photos. So, it's a different sculpt, but I wouldn't call it new. I'm sure HT will make a new T1000 figure, once EB releases their version, but right now, I say they are using an old sculpt.

This figure turned out fantastic imo. Very nicely done. With that said, I just am not feeling that I absolutely NEED to have it. I have the Enterbay BD for 1/4 and the HT T-800 MMS 117(?) for 1/6 already. Maybe I've run my course in 1/6 and my days here are numbered :dunno

I had a deposit for this, but I decided to transfer it over to the Cap PF.


Congrats to those who are getting him though. A very nice figure indeed. Enjoy!

It actually is a new headsculpt. The prototype didn't have that elongated chin, or that shaped nose with lip that this chrome one has. You're just getting thrown off by the ears (the chrome one has vertically longer ears whereas the old proto just stuck out from the side).

Wouldn't mind a 2.0 version as well. I can't afford the old version at the moment, plus if a new one will probably be around the same price as a used old one is going for now, I wouldn't mind an update one like they did with Joker. I guess it will depend how well they do with the DX13 and so far from reviews on here, it looks like there could be a chance.

I was wondering that, too, but I don't think so. Looks like he just ended-up pulling the head with neck post out from the body. Neck joint on the body is hollow, where I'd suppose it wouldn't be if he had broken the post. Still, always surprises me how rough some people are with these figures.

Everyone thought so, but I think he just pulled it out of it's arm thing. At least that's what a few people said.

LOL I noticed that too. Not just the boxes -- I lost count of the times I cringed seeing how rough he is with the figure itself.



I really wish someone else would do those un-boxing videos, someone who actually talks... I feel like he's holding his breath the entire time... Did he break the neck on the T-1000?

It's possible that he doesn't speak English, maybe? :)

If it's the same kidult... (sp?) silent creepy unboxing guy, he's a scalper. Probably has it listed for $500 or more already. He can probably afford to break them... :pfft: Not really a fan of his but he always has the unboxing videos... just wished someone else had that luxury, someone more human. :lol

That's understandable I guess, but perhaps put on some music or something in the background. Maybe even the Terminator theme. It is just so eerie with ambient noise.

Yup.

Everyone hates this guy but I think he's the best. He's great if you want to get to the point and see what the figure looks like in hand early.

This is a silly question, but here it goes. If you don't use the HS with the light up eye, do you have to remove the batteries or is the little plastic enough? I'm asking because I probably won't use the full BD head sculpt. I usually remove the batteries from the stands or weapons (dx 12 gun).

Yup. Or hearing 5 minutes just on the box, or someone who has to turn or bent every articulation point like we didn't know. And jokes. Funny men love YouTube. Almost all YouTube reviews are garbage IMO.

Well as far as youtube reviews go I actually like hearing peoples thoughts on a piece, I sure as heck wouldn't watch his videos if they were not the first up. There cool for a first look and all but lets be honest, this guys nothing more than a flipper showing his wears.

I don't need to hear there opinions to decide if I want something but there usually helpful in giving a heads up on things to watch out for and to get a detailed look at the piece.

Of course this all depends on which reviewer your talking about though.

Batteries will eventually leak, plastic tab or no.

The plastic tab only exists to stop switches from accidentally being switched on and sucking all the juice out before you get them. Esp on shop shelves. Dead batteries leak quicker than "fresh" ones, but eventually, they will ALL leak. No ifs, no buts.

Yeah, then it comes out and years from now we look at it and say, "it could be better". Thing is, we've never had a 1/6 Battle Damaged T-800 before. Of course it should be up to date as far as standards go. But then what? It's 2015, sculpts have improved. Should we get another Battle Damaged version of Uncle Bob? Okay, it's 2018 that old 2015 sculpt is obsolete now, time for a 3.0? Before you know it, 2013 will be "four years ago" before we know it.

We finally got the Battle Damaged T-800 we've been wanting for the past 4 to 5 years. Now we all seem to want a redo of past figures. Where does it end? If things are constantly improving each year (and they are), none of our characters will ever match up to previous ones. Say they make a new regular Uncle Bob, boom, it's better looking than the battle damage. After that, they make a new T-1000 that blows away all the T-800s in terms of likeness and details. Now all the others look "off". Do you really want to keep doing this forever?
Even the Hot Toys T-1000 sausage finger and DX 10's PERS aren't anywhere near those. Everything can be improved until the end of time, sure. But do you really want to buy more versions after all the money you put into your collection? You really can't wait until the day where half of the things you bought are "obsolete"?

He is rough - & eerily silent.. except for the heavy breathing. However, as others have said - his videos are probably in there with the better ones, because there's no time wasted gabbing about box details or articulation points. While I do appreciate a nice detailed review sometimes, he gets to the point - & you see what you're paying for pretty quickly.

Ok, I knew it would be extra but looking it over just now, they are charging a lot for shipping. I wonder if the T1000 is really heavy.

If I do the pack out I'll be close to 30 bucks in shipping and that's a lot for a sixth scale figure. That's how much PF's usually cost to ship.

Send an email requesting it in your acct. state that you understand that said rip off service will set you back $10 extra each time it is done.

From what I can tell, it does take longer to ship for those that are packed out than the ones that aren't.

Probably more like $140: possibly $85 in customs and duty (based on $314.99 + $40) + $40 shipping + $15 Fed-Ex charge.


SS put their shipping up $5 since last year, but I don't know why they added an extra $10 to the regular BD T-800 and another $10 to the figure itself.

I ordered the Exclusive last year when shipping was only $25, and the exclusive itself $10 less. But I still have a hard time convicning myself it was a bargain.

That shiny Robert Patrick head is going to be costing me £50 more than the regular I've ordered in the UK.

Still not sure if I want to get another. I would be keeping the body and the damaged arm/coat and parting out the rest if I did. So I would have a full bd T-800 and a semi-bd one that I can switch between arm on and arm off.

I'm kind of on the fence because I bought 2 DX11's for the extra body. I ended up being able to sell off all the extra stuff, making the cost of having the extra body relatively cheap, but I didn't really like having two of the same figure in my display. I ended up selling off the body too so in the end, I basically bought a Joker and parted the whole thing out. This is Terminator though. I hold it in much higher regard than any other license, so I'm considering...

Do you think you'd display the t1000 ex? I want the ex, but often wonder if Id actually display it!

Yeah, I agree. You would almost have to display it with the T-800 punching him (unless someone discovers a new way to pose it) and that alone takes away a hand for a weapon as well as the many other poses you can do. That's one of the reasons why I might forget about the EX and save a small bit of $$ for the regular, but I'm not sure yet. If a set of BD clothes comes out for the spare head sculpt, then it might be worth doing a pose with the T-1000 and then a heavily BD pose alone.

I appreciate the less is more approach. I just can't do it with Terminator. Too much that I like too much, especially about the steel mill scenes. Hell I'm even thinking of upping my original number of these that I want to end up with. I blame Jingobell.

Its just detolf room for me mate( well money aswell) I knew you would be going mad. Like I said I remember you with t-1000s years ago :1-1:
I'm also hoping hot toys start throwing more terminator figures out now.

Sounds like a plan.

..Plus the sculpt on the dx13 is so awesome that you want it to be the focal point. The t1000 would end up obstructing the best parts of the figure.

Hmm.. Maybe I don't need to get the ex after all lol.

Was considering buying another one but I'm going to kit bash a second one instead.

Asmus toy is offering a leather set for the DX13 which looks decent enough.

Just need the body and you basically have a suitable second figure since the DX13 comes with 2 leather jackets and enough extra hands.

Very nice. The only thing I'd be missing is the BD chest and leg. Does anyone know how the broken arm piece works? Is the DX13 a special body where it is removable? One of the leather jackets is missing a sleeve for the BD, so it would look weird if there was an arm there, but I guess you could always use the DX13 body with the broken arm and a new one for this clothing set. The msising BD chest and leg is a factor for me though so I would pass.

My insanity has only escalated since the T-1000. I'm trying to compensate by cutting back elsewhere and adding more and more for sale (of course that only helps if you actually succeed in selling the stuff!)

My DX13 for sure will be displayed on his base. Now if I am to use the T-1000 it will be much lower than the DX13 (ruining the effect) as it will not be at the same level. I might put my liquid T-1000 on the same Detolf shelf as my MMS T-1000 to strengthen the character (showing both forms). Just thoughts as I wait for my purchase…….

That depends what the value cut-off point is at which you tend to get charged customs fees wherever you are. If it were me I think $80-100 would be fine. Now I've got two coming from Timcent so I would have went $100 but I forgot to ask. I'm worried now that if he has marked too low for such a large and heavy package they'll investigate it. Hasn't happened to me yet but there's a first time for everything as they say.

I would say it'll take a week and a half, something like that. I hope I'll have it by next weekend but I have a feeling it'll be the monday.

I just hope AEC and BBTS don't sell out, just in case, since they're much cheaper than ordering the regular from SSC.

It used to be same day... but the were a number of the SW figures around when IG-88 came out that had up to a week between payment and shipping notifications. Although the last 2 figures I ordered shipped the same day so I figured it had gone back to the previous system.

Maybe there are a lot of these coming and they're charging early to get through the orders in a timely fashion :huh Who knows what the cap on a figure like this is when it sells out after a 6 month pre-order window?

Where is the Pack OUT option? I never see it :gah:
Just live chat a rep and request one. It's $10 extra and you can ask them to set up your account so that every order is sent out as a pack out.

No idea. I'm on flex pay so maybe that's why.

My last flex pay was yesterday and now shipping soon. Did you pre order it late?

No, I preordered fairly early - within a few weeks since it was announced. My last payment was delayed since June. I think I should give them a call >___<

The charge just showed up on my account; I've done my part now it's time for Sideshow to do theirs :lecture :lol

I didn't order right away... I think I waited a couple of months, but it was before the Ex got waitlisted.

So the one on PO now at SS is the exclusive version? I may have to get it...ordered regular from BBTS but the exclusive seems a must

WISH HT would do a DX version of the T 1000 with even more accesories and chrome plated liquid body parts to switch out?

Just wondering it might be cool to use the more intact leather jacket to put on the dx10 or mms117 for a post gallaria mall look, you know with having the bullet holes in it after the first encounter with the T1000.

Had that thought too :wink1:

Well it could work perfectly if I get my extra reg set from bbts, I figure with two full sets I will end up with a couple of extra jackets so might as well put it to use and I can't think of a better way than to up-grade my mms117 with it, you know spice up the whole terminator collection abit:)

SSC policy is to ship in 72 hours and I was charged yesterday. I'm hoping to see this early next week cause I'm in CA :panic::panic::panic:

:exactly: That's the plan, the leathers on the dx10 being real and to clean are not going to go well, the dx13 leathers should be a perfect match to the mms117 as they seem to be made of the same material.
