: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.

You have the T-1000 & John Connor too, so I sense a scene photo shoot soon :lol

Because after he destroyed the T-1000 he completed his main objective and the last thing needed to be carried out was to destroy his chip.

Yeah but destroying Cyberdyne and all traces of himself weren't part of his programming. He was only following orders and used his logic to determine that he himself would have to be destroyed given the objectives John and Sarah had. He could have made the case to John that he too had to die but he should still have been subject to John's orders you would think....

By the end of the film the T-800 wasn't just a mindless cyborg following a mission, it was it's own entity. He was just as much involved and interested in the destruction of Cyberdyne as John and Sarah was. In fact, it was mostly his idea to "prevent the war".

I just saw the ending as the Terminator's full understanding of the situation. The T-1000 is destroyed, he himself is on his last leg. If he exists, he is essentially the future (like that cut line alludes to). He understands he has no real purpose now and must sacrifice himself to prevent the war. He can override John's orders because he can think and choose to. While he doesn't feel and can't cry, he can think like a human being.

Yeah this makes sense to me. He was damaged already and may have not been repairable and didn't really have a purpose in staying. He probably felt that his being around put John and Sarah more at risk in case he was discovered.

Yeah, he was essentially running on alternate power. The heat of the steel mill is what kept him going.

There's no ending where the Terminator, John and Sarah go and hide into the night and fix up all that damage. It's more than a few slugs in his back and he knows it.

I dunno. Isn't the idea behind his learning computer to be able to become a better human infiltrator? I don't know that that goes towards being able to override his programming....or maybe it can and that's why Skynet presets the switch to ''read-only''. Actually yeah that's an interesting point.


He probably finally realized how much more awesome T1 T-800 was than him, and just couldn't stand to live anymore. I can't blame him.

This was the case since the start. I recently asked customer support about and they said that it was a promotional offer. They wanted the figure to look more enticing so they lowered the price by $10 and offer Flat rate shipping. I guess, this way it was imperative that they sell more.

Shipping is $18.33 too instead of offering a Flat rate of $10. That makes the Regular a whopping $18 more than the EX. :lecture ...

I just saw the ending as the Terminator's full understanding of the situation. The T-1000 is destroyed, he himself is on his last leg. If he exists, he is essentially the future (like that cut line alludes to). He understands he has no real purpose now and must sacrifice himself to prevent the war. He can override John's orders because he can think and choose to. While he doesn't feel and can't cry, he can think like a human being.

I always thought it was simpler than that. His mission was/is to protect John. Destroying himself and the last remaining chip are the most effective way of doing so.

Yeah, that Ripley scene is extremely sexy.

Hell yeah it is... it's both in your face and subtle at the same time. But I'd be totally down getting freaky (and maybe even a bit dominated) with ALIEN Ripley and T2 Sarah Connor :lecture


They vary, if you want to see a load more go to ebay.com. I don't know why. It just works that way, and makes no difference when you log in or buy.


I'd probably avoid parted out stuff on eBay for a bit... there's always this initial price surge from the "have to have it first" crew. Once these are more plentiful the prices will drop a bit... although I could see the body remaining a big-ticket item; that's the one pieces you really can't easily do on your own or steal from another figure. The most economical choice if you want 2 full figures is to buy a 2nd figure and part out the extra pieces. Just selling one of each head, extra leather jackets, weapons and one of T-1000 pieces would probably negate the price of the 2nd figure.

I was hoping the chest wound happened a bit after the lesser damaged face, but sadly it was all at the same time. Although I really don't understand what caused that giant-*** hole just in his chest unless half the guys were center of mass shooting :huh

Well being "Uncle Bob" is the first problem... and then comparing it to punching through a guys stomach and slaughtering an entire police precinct he's just not the same relentless killing machine :lol

Don't get me wrong, I really do love T2; but it's a softer/friendly film by comparison.

This is why I DON'T have a problem with T2 in that way. Machines are whatever you program them to be. Arnold is programmed differently. That's what makes it scary for me. All the stiffness of him trying to behave like a "person" is pretty much foreign to him. The fact that it can be humorous is a side effect, but it's still frightening.

I know but I'm OK with him being 'cool' rather than a mindless killing machine. Besides which the T-1000 plays that role in this film.

:exactly:

They did it plausibly. In the same circumstances that same T1 T-800 would have been just like the T2 version and vica versa. You can easily rationalise why the T2 T-800 didn't kill anyone prior to John ordering him not to. The same reason the T1 T-800 didn't kill the guy in the phonebox or the bouncer at Tech Noir - happenstance.

Uncle Bob is a cooler Terminator than The T1, because he's the good guy.

He has the knowledge and capabilities that the T1 doesn't. The T1 will rip your heart out? Great. That gets old after the first movie. Uncle Bob? He's a proactive mother ****er. He KNOWS he can rip your heart out . . . but chooses not to. That's a lot more compelling. He ain't human, he's a machine but he has a deeper understanding than "muast kill Sarah Connahz".

Atleast Uncle Bob accomplished his mission and didn't go out like a ***** by a former waitress. He beat a more advanced Terminator and went out on his own terms. Being lowered into that molten steel, unflinching is a much better and more fulfilling end than struggling helplessly in a cage while a damsel in distress crushes you.



Oh, and technically Uncle Bob got all of T1's alcolades and kills considering everyone thought he was the first one. So yeah, the ultimate bad ***.

Scalpers are punks. They make a living by selling dolls for 60% more than what they cost. Then later, over 100%. They unflitchingly break down thousands of sets and sell little individual cheapo parts like it's gold.

Hot Toys sees this and in turn knocks up their MSRPs. Then Sideshow has to follow suit and REAL retail sellers from all over the world suffer. Poor TA and other US stores now get little stock and inventory because the endless cycle is more and more unforgiving to the middleman.


Never forget!

Yup, all true.

And lest we forget, we buyers are punks too. "Oh this is my limit, not a cent more", then the following year when there's a $100 increase we pull the trigger with ease.

I always hate it on eBay how bidders are on certain auctions like flies on **** without any strategy. They bid away, showing their hands and bump up the prices on an item that is being sold elsewhere. I wonder if we'll ever realize that WE dictate the prices and if we truly believed that it was worth 10 bucks, then we'd all get it for 10 bucks. But nah. Some of us see that little 0.20 cent jacket and are eager to throw down $150 bucks on it. :lol

When it comes to toys, it's too bad we all perceive "worth" and value differently. If we all had it in our heads that it was one price in dollars, pounds, yen or what have you, none of us would be "overpaying" and we could all get good deals because the sellers would be forced to knock em down a bit.


I'm a punk though. I paid $90 bucks for an Arnold TT body before.

"I cannot self terminate, you must lower me into the steel."

As much as he understands human nature and likes John, he knows he isn't human and that if he exists, mankind is doomed. He ain't even a real martyr or emo about it. He knows what he has to do and does it, simple as that. John is the one who is bawling his eyes out, not uncle Bob. He unflinchingly goes into molten steel and gives one last thumbs up to the audience and The Connor's. Pretty bad ***. He goes out pretty much the way he came in, but with a better understanding for how it all works.

That Flailing, limbless failure that got crushed by a hydraulic press went out like a punk.

It should, but the hs & body skin tone might not match.

It would barely be noticeable. I think the dx 10 body is a great economical solution, considering each collector would have 1 bd body to display the full bd on anyways. So on a shelf from a 2 feet distance a dx 10 body with the less damaged sculpt punching the t1000 would be a good cost solution, thrown in some ameture paint work on the tshirt and all good. 125 plus for a body is quite some cost.

Agreed, they are so completely different and it seems nearly impossible that the T-1000 could ever be beaten. The TX just seemed like a step backward :lol


Woohoo! Just got a sideshow shipping notification. Its being sent today. And Fedex are pretty fast, almost makes the fees tolerable.

edit - Estimated arrival 28th november, that's thursday next week. :yess: The Batmobile arrived ahead of its schedule so maybe this'll arrive on Wednesday even.

Nice! No shipping notice for me, but it's encouraging to know at least one figure is going out already.


I think this is the best release, no?

Definitely one of the better one and nothing really stands out as a problem on it. I think the only other figure that really seemed to be a total win from HT was the Jack Sparrow DX... not my favorite film, but damn that figure is amazing :lecture

Is there a way to start a poll on this forum ? As in is there a feature and how to do so?

Anyone else getting him from AE? Marc said he'd be in by end of month. Noticed his PO price jumped from $289 to $302 today...

When you're starting a New Thread look right down at the bottom, there's an option to add a poll.

I see that but dont see option where I can create a pattern in which people can choose? Does that come after i post a thread - ideally there should be one where we can set the categories etc?

Hmmm. I think I've only done it about once so can't really remember. But Nova (UncannyWebSlinger) would know :D

I remember Sideshow did the same thing with the DX 11. I was getting pissed that it seemed like everyone was getting their orders fulfilled and ship but me. And yeah, I ordered the first day it went up.

Then prior to that I ordered the DX 12 Batman as soon as it was up for order, paid with paypal, and they got it to me faster than those who ordered on day one!

There's no rhyme or reason to it. It doesn't matter when you placed your order. I know one thing, I've never gotten an "expedited shipping" email before. I got one for this order and Mime Joker. They said it's a new thing.
