So we're into the $300s now. Methinks when Terminator and Robocop are done. I'm done.

Its getting to look like it. Man. I told myself that I would never get a single figure release at $300. Made the exception with Hulk, cause its going to be huge. Made an exception with Luke because its essentially 2 full figures. But this....Its the ****ing Battle Damaged T2, GRAIL. I cant pass this up. No way. No how.

But damn, yeah if DXs are hitting averaging $250-$300 a pop. I dunno. They would really need to pull out all the stops with DXs from now on.

Like DX01, DX04, DX05, DX06, DX07, DX11, and now this. They need to stop the DX lites. IMO.

Last HT figure I paid for was 89 Bats, one HT figure a year ain't bad. Only thing I'm interested in after this is a police shoot out T1, maybe that'll be out in 2014.

The tear gas launcher would complete this perfectly imo. I think that scene is pretty iconic, and with only one accessory missing to be able to recreate it, it seems a shame to miss it out

By the time this is in hand, I will have 2 DX heads/bodies and leathers.

One DX10 will go on my Fatboy (which has had my MMS117 on it for as long as I ve had the bike)

The second DX10 will take the light battle damage headsculpt and have him with the cyberdyne scene, even though its not film accurate, I cant NOT display BOTH heads.

DX13 will be full on Battle Damage. Though I may keep it with both arms and do the famouse pose as a-Devs sig.

Itll get switched up alot since I dont plan on buying more that one of this one.


You know I was thinking the same thing about using the slightly damaged HS on the DX10 body still with the Cyberdyne scene. Not accurate but would make for a more interesting display. Plus that scene wasn't that far off from the point he endured the suttle battle damage leaving the building. I would consider him representing a blend of both looks from that part of the movie. It would also be cheaper then buying 2 DX13's which from the look of it, would be quite pricey. :)

If i hadn't just dropped $300 on the Tron lightcycle, I'd probably be more shocked than I am, but damn, still pretty shocked. This and the Mark VII, may just do it for me next year.

$305 is a steep price. Trying to convince myself that I don't need the exclusive so I can get it cheaper elsewhere.

Alter Ego would be $270 with the usual 10% cut.

I'm guessing there will be plenty of the extra head by the time it ships. You can still get that ex telescope.

Best check Toys2 and other dealers that tend to get the regional ex's as well. I think I got the Sparrow EX through BBTS or AE... I know it wasn't Sideshow.

The justification to purchase these would be a lot more acceptable if the flex payments were low and affordable. And although the lower flex amounts would mean more time spacing for delivery, that would be fine by me.

Paying $300+ in one transaction can be overwhelming at times.

Yeah I dont really count Luke since its two full figures, But then theres HULK and Jake Sully too, but I dont count them either, really since they are "larger" figures.

So this is the first 12" single figure release that broke the $300 barrier.

Looks as if the subtle changes that needed to be made to the other DX sculpt were done for this version. Looks damn good... I'll wait and see how the next couple months shape up in terms of other releases before POing this.

AE has it for 290, and lists the MSRP at 315 instead of 305.... weird.

As a big T2 fan, I really want this but not sure which route to go: SSC EX for $315 shipped is probably the best deal overall (can do Flex Pay to soften the blow, get the extra T-1000 head, get rewards points, and get fast, private carrier tracked shipping in that price), but the NRD sucks, and there's a chance I'll get cold feet when the charges begin...

For me, that T-1000 head is essential. So the exclusive is a must.

But yeah, that price, ouch. Not surprised though, the value and pricing on these just keep getting worse and worse. There's no justifying it, it's just how it is. I've gotten used to it after Jack Joker, hell, even before that.

Beggars can't be choosers though. I *****ed and moaned about a T2 BD T-800 and it's finally coming.

I'll either rely on rewards points or just wait until secondary market prices come down. No real rush considering it'll probably be a ways off. Who knows though, depending on what I have or don't have, I could possibly pull the trigger.

I don't think every release will get to the $300 mark right away. Star Wars is a nut-grabber. A BD Terminator is also one. So would a Joker with everything on it. Beyond that, they have to be very careful or include a ton of extras.

I don't think every release will get to the $300 mark right away. Star Wars is a nut-grabber. A BD Terminator is also one. So would a Joker with everything on it. Beyond that, they have to be very careful or include a ton of extras.

Desensitization.

The price IS a lot when you put things into perspective. It is steep and a little outrageous. Affordable or not, $300+ for a 12" figure is nuts. I remember when I thought $200/$200+ was too much (and I still do). I really don't like how these are seemingly priced on a whim. Hot Toys has quite a few lines, DX, reg. MMS, vehicles, etc. and they should all have uniformed prices for specific lines. Not, "oh this one comes with more lights and accessories, charge more". Obviously characters like Hulk or Iron Monger or Avaterd's would be exceptions, but for the most part, it should be pretty uniformed. Licenses be damned.

But everything is going up in price, at least around here and it's just getting worse.

Give it time and I'm sure it'll be, "well, $400 isn't bad, could be $500".

There's no other option though for a high end collectible 1/6 Battle Damaged T-800 so it's either, put up or shut up. I wouldn't say $300+ is fair though, most of us are just desensitized or don't give a ****.

I don't know why people think this price is steep, it has a lot of accessories and if anything, I was expecting a higher price as this is probably everyone's grail on the A&R section. I can't wait to get this and the DX12 ordered. Decided on getting this and breaking my rule of 1 figure per franchise

The good thing about the dx10 is that the sculpt and body all updated so it matches nicely with the dx13. I think it's great. Also, is the t1000 the same ast the mms release? Or an entirely new sculpt? Either way this is one cool set. Pricey but cool-

I think a lot of the price inflation is due to ebay auctions for previous figures. A lot of the older releases sell for twice the original costs. I know in my case $300 doesnt seem like a lot when I'll pay $700 for a custom. But thats me. I make enough to keep up with the hobby. A lot of other people dont.

Nah, exclusive's are now an open-ended sort of thing... no real rush to order. And with the DX Luke some people got theirs sooner by ordering once it was already shipping than those who ordered on day one.


Yah, I was thinking about that too. Most of the HT PO stay up until release, but then there's always one "Hawkeye" type fig that unexpectedly goes poof. I don't want to miss out on the better value of the SSC EX.

Demimatt
11-16-2012, 12:47 PM
for 300, yes it's been said but it should be two figures. This many options is ridic to only give us one body. Now we'll need, 1 body, 1 pair of paints, and 1 pair of boots + a stand to make two complete figures out of this. Granted . .. I am not really in a position to ***** since I bought 4 T-1000s at launch and this is my favourite movie. But still, HT needs to balance their releases more so, similar to the Luke DX, which IMO was a 1 off.

I figured with the Joker DX v2 I was going to buy 2, but I decided on one . . . this one however . . . I need both heads displayed.

Also, like the Joker DX v2, I don't quite think this SS Exclusive is worth it, the extra 45 dollars for Cali residents is a bit much, considering it's just a silver head. Granted . . . It's a cool head, and you won't be able to get it for less than 45 but yeah . . . getting it for 305 shipped from other sites, versus 345 from SS seems appealing.

11-16-2012, 12:54 PM
I will say it's unfortunate that there aren't two figures here, or that the DX10 and this weren't just combined into one super awesome figure with everything you'd ever want from T2.

For me, that T-1000 head is essential. So the exclusive is a must.

But yeah, that price, ouch. Not surprised though, the value and pricing on these just keep getting worse and worse. There's no justifying it, it's just how it is. I've gotten used to it after Jack Joker, hell, even before that.

Beggars can't be choosers though. I *****ed and moaned about a T2 BD T-800 and it's finally coming.

I'll either rely on rewards points or just wait until secondary market prices come down. No real rush considering it'll probably be a ways off. Who knows though, depending on what I have or don't have, I could possibly pull the trigger.

Good points....moaning(as I do) doesn't change anything..buy or don't.....just really getting crazy if you collect more than one line.....tough choices continue.....

like I said before.. total ***** move on Hot Toys' part. I have to admit tho.. pretty good hustle. If they announced this any earlier, it would have cannibalized their DX10 sales. They made it different enough from DX 10, and spaced it out far enough to feel less pain.

Would have been nice to have a combined set. Not even including a 2nd BD body .. just a 2nd BD head, arm, and leg, similar to the Iron Man sets, a few guns and charge 350. I feel this would have been a more efficient way and have gotten more volume. 1 quality set, priced at instead of 2 separate ones.

That being said, I'm writing this.. I think this was a good business move on Hot Toy's part. 1 Super set with a mixed bag of accessories charged at 350 would be a steal for us buyers, but maybe not good for their business model. I think 350 for would be pricing themselves out and pretty much pushing buyers to EnterBay's 1/4 offering.

If they separate the sets, 1 clean and 1 BD they can likely maximize their revenue. Smart move for the company. ****ty move for it's loyalty base. Proof that no matter what they say, they're in business to make money. Pleasing fans just happens to be a bonus.

An item is worth as much as someone is willing to pay. If the price strikes you as outrageous and you don't want to spend that amount, then you don't really want this figure since it isn't worth it to you.

I think this figure looks great, I'm a fan of the Terminator series, so I'm more than happy to pay the price. Worth it to me. And by the looks of it, plenty of other customers willing to pony up the money.

I'm not really defending Hot Toys here, but this is only $70 more than the previous T-800 DX. For an extra head (one of which has light up gimmick), jacket, and the T-1000, I think the increase is not unreasonable, and the price is not surprising. I know the $300 has sticker shock just because it is $300, and it isn't a freakish big figure like Hulk or Avatar and isn't two complete figures like Luke. But still.

It is a shame this isn't a two figure set like Luke, but I reckon the special body with the exposed endo parts was more expensive to do than just taking a couple of slim true types and slapping narrow shoulder arms on them.

Yea I'm thinking this body is a bit of hybrid of parts. new left leg and I bet the right arm has the new 90+ elbow articulation. while the left arm looks to have the MMS plug elbow, plus rework the chest/neck with the BD parts

Where are people seeing that the EB one is $100 more? LOL... that figure is not even released as of yet. EB customer service is terrible and unreliable on top of that. Don't think EB will come with liquid metal t-1000 accessory either which to me is worth $50 alone.

That's what I was thinking, too. But they don't mention PERS as they do in the description of the other head. Maybe this means both of the eyes move, but just not with the PERS system. Perhaps that means you have to move each eye individually?

BBTS has it up for pre -order and I gotta say I'm disappointed in their price, a first for me. They have it at $299, only $5 off SS's price without the Exclusive t-1000 head. It also says that's off a list price of $314 not $304, so I wonder if they'll drop $10 off at a later date.

I may actaully have to go with SS on this one, even though I don't really see me needing the exclusive.

Anyone know if they've said if the exclusive head will fit on the earlier t-1000 figure, then I might use it.

Assuming you do it right, you can use this period of time as a test-run to see what you're interested in and what you're not.

2) my sig pose with the PERS utilised to great effect
3) mid-stage battle damage when he cuts T-1000 in half (semi BD face and destroyed hand
4) Crawling full BD
5) SWAT shootout

Since 1 and 2 are all the exact same ingredients and only a few moments apart in the film I might just alternate one figure between them.

The Enterbay version would be my normal standing version of the full BD look.

$600 for 2 of them not even including shipping (which itself will be a motherload if I order from Toys2) is a frightening thought. Certainly I don't think I'll be able to get them all at once. It'll be over a period of time.

Y'know, I think as long as I get one at the initial retail that I know no one else has ever opened, handled etc I will be happy enough for it to take as long as it takes for me to buy the rest. Especially if by then I have successfully stopped buying all other lines.

Wow, I saw this first thing this morning when I woke up at 5 am for work...

While we only have the few pics from EB for their BD Terminator, I think they easily have HT beat with likeness/accuracy. That being said, HT REALLY knocked it out of the park in the accessories/display category.

I was shocked that they included everything so that you could make virtually any look from the last like, 30 minutes of the film. Heck, they even got the metal pole!

I legit got chills when I saw the pics of him getting ready to do the "hasta la vista" pose where he's about to raise the pistol. Not to mention, the awesome grenade launcher in one hand, and pistol in the other pose, which instantly reminded me of the first time I saw the old mcfarlane movie maniacs figure.

This is a grail piece for sure. As of right now though, the 1/4 has it beat for me because I have the clean version and it's my favorite collectible period, so I know EB will rock it. That being said, theres a big enough gap in release dates that I'd like to eventually get both. I do, afterall, have Sarah, the T-1000, and the original T2 Arnie release. It'd be a shame to not complete the line-up in my detolf :lecture

I wasn't expecting it next, but I do want that sometime soon! Maybe it will be DX14, Anakin Skywalker DX15?



This figure is pretty cool, and from a casual Terminator fan's perspective much better than the DX10. LED eye is going to look amazing, hopefully no wiring issues arise.

I guess I was just getting my hopes up there waiting for a Marty in DX. I'm hoping he'll now be a DX15 to pay homage to the 2015 Marty :pray:

Yeah this figure is awesome, and I got the DX10, and I pulled the trigger and ordered this guy today when I got up. As this being one of my favorite movie franchises, it was next to impossible to pass up. I'm hoping that wiring isn't an issue either, considering the how complex it may be.

This is such a grail figure... and with everything I could have wanted (including the light-up eye) PLUS the T-1000 blob.

I'm so excited about this today!!! :blissy


Now I'm ready for the final installment... the T1 T-800 BD Police Shoot-out version. Only version that may be better than this one.




I'm still torn on whether to get the full DX10... or just get the "clean" jacket, tee and pants loose on ebay as an option for my BD DX13.

What we really need is a 1/6 Edward Furlong John Connor to complete this line. It would have been so much cooler if they included John Connor instead of this T1000 statue, the T800 has no purpose without it's mission!

i think this figure with all details, accessories and likeness is the best that HT did to this day.

p.s. left glove shouldn't have torn meet under it because there was no meet to that moment.

I'd love a Furlong Connor too but not 'instead of' the liquid metal T-1000 here. How about 'aswell' in a seperate release.

Hes right about the left hand, there shouldn't be exposed flesh there, anything exposed should be pure endoskeleton - I forgot about that.

Since I can't realistically afford to pick up two of these, my display will end up being a hybrid. I'll pick the coolest look and accessories and scene-accuracy be damned. I'm thinking ... end-stage damage but punching the T-1000 with the Patrick head.

Yeah, it's not "correct" but it captures the spirit. And it will look utterly bad-ass. Which, come on, is really the whole point! :lol

They should make him, especially if they are busting out the dude with the suit in Iron Man and Avengers.......:dunno
