Yeah, really is. Makes me wonder if I should buy a duplicate just to keep MIB in case anything happens to the one on display (say I break something or get a scuff on the headsculpt)... Have a feeling these will be going for a premium once they're sold out. :S

Supposed to be battle damaged. It gets broken in the film. They could have done a better job with the wood paint.

This is one of those figures that you just have to pull out of the detolf and just admire the details.

:exactly:

Also one of those figures that you can just take out of the box, pose and futz a little, display, then enjoy.

I used to love the DX10 with shades but now even that is starting to bug me. Thinking about foregoing the DX10 clean look altogether and settling on a semi-battle damaged headsculpt on the DX10 (with semi-BD jacket) and full blown BD DX13 Terminator for display. Then I'll just wait for the inevitable clean reissue with new HS.

Does the blood on the semi damaged sculpt really look that bloody in person. I don't know why HT smeared the blood so much :(

The actual look is more subtle blood

I hope it doesn't seem so smeared when I get it in my hands. What a shame because I wanted to do more poses with the semi damaged sculpt.

The damaged sculpt is almost spot on with the blood

Honestly, I don't get what people are saying about the endo parts not being endo-y enough and so on. It looks very, very good in-hand and definitely the 'jammy' aspects are played-up in photos. (I wouldn't be exaggerating to say that I marvelled at both headsculpts, in-hand. Anecdotal, but my wife loathes this hobby yet loved the DX13.) That said, you can always get it re-painted if you hate it. IMO, you have to have a very particular image in your head of what you wanted/were expecting, not to like it (which is not a bad thing, but I think out of the main stream, for sure).

Well, the blood on the flesh I don't care about so much. Its maybe a little excessive but not terribly so. During the SWAT scene there's a fair amount of blood on his face which seems to reduce in subsequent scenes. I just wish they hadn't smeared the endoskeleton parts with blood so much because it makes them stand out less. When Arnie was walking through the steel mill and the light would catch you could clearly make out the silver of his endoskeleton. But on this figure what you see is primarily the shine of a bloodied paint-job, not silver. That's disappointing. I also don't like the fit of the jackets.

Everything else though, excellent at best to pretty good at worst. I would recommend this figure to anyone. There is immense enjoyment to be had here.

HeubertMichael
11-30-2013, 10:27 PM
Indeed the bloody paint may have been overdone, but the easiest way to explain it is that these are mass-produced, and that it's easier to glide one or two large brush strokes of blood than doing it meticulously by giving some parts more blood than the other, dripping effect, etc. I think if they've done that this figure would only be delayed and fans would keep bombarding threads and HT message boards with "WHERE IS MY BD T800, HT?!"

I can't wait to receive mine Wednesday! Just the anticipation is killing me. I don't own the DX10 and or the MMS version. Always thought both looked off but definitely going to buy a spare body and DX10 Shirt, Pants and Boots so the Semi Damage Head can go on it. Hopefully Hot Toys will release a new clean figure. But we definitely need a T1 Police Shootout and or Kyle Reese or even Endo before that. Missed out on the Tech Noir but it'll be fine since I can get the Police Shootout and I already have the T1 PF which settles it. Hopefully Sideshow will release a Tech Noir PF but anyways back on topic I can't wait to receive this in and a video will be up on here for you guys. :panic:

Tech Noir Terminator has never appealed to me since I never liked the outfit (that shirt...). However, really looking forward to PS Terminator, endoskeletons and maybe a Kyle Reese (not committed but would go for it if the figure's amazing enough). Definitely still a few key releases before HT should even think about another clean T2.

Cheers but keep in mind that only the headsculpt on that particular figure of mine in those pics is from the actual DX13. The body is a custom. It has a BD endo-chest taken from the NECA 12" figure, chromed and transplanted onto the MMS body.

The fact of the matter is the endo-parts on DX13 are pretty much bronze, such is the degree of blood painted onto them.

It shouldn't ruin the entire figure for you but its a fact.

Definitely agree with you here Hot Toys has some other key releases which they should get out before another T2 clean :exactly: but I know I'll be happy with my Battle Damage for now. Tech Noir I like but of course the Police Shootout look rocks. Love my PF from SS of him. A 1/6 scale figure hopefully a DX release should rock! The MMS Tech Noir should of been DX in the first place but oh well.

I hope the generally positive response to this figure inspires Hot Toys to go ahead with more Terminator figures. There's actually still a lot of milking potential here between figures they haven't touched at all yet and remakes of characters/versions they've already done.

Well they overdid the blood to a great extent. Overall the figure is awesome. Put as soon as you open it, you do notice the glaring bright blood work. Even in the full bd sculpt, endo parts etc.

According to tracking which still hasn't updated it apparently takes 3 days to get to Preston from Birmingham which is actually only roughly a 2 hour drive. so i couldn't collect over the weekend Still got to pay the fees yet so its looking like wednesday for me :gah: 2 weeks it'll have taken.

Im still super pumped to get him, im just getting sick of looking at an empty cube of space in my detolf :mad:.

dunno where the conversation is on-going, so I'll post this here too...

so, I haven't been around that often, but thought I'd give everyone a heads-up. I just stumbled on this on eBay. tamiya seemingly has released a new 1/6 fatboy-kit last month (release date: november 2013)?
it's not the correct model for T2, but with correct decals and some paintwork it would be close enough.

As I saw his post I directly thought about you.^^
His custom chromed endo is really awesome and can't wait how the parts turn out together with the blood and so on, r5150s.

I'm debating myself if I want to try to clean it up a little with the chrome parts and maybe..maybe toning down the flesh to blood ratio in some areas. :lecture

I'll have to see what the sculpt looks like to the naked eye in front of me.

That's the only way I know for sure.

Hoping mine arrives midweek, if not, definitely by the end of the week.:tap

Is that the first HT Endo?

Was the newer version only 1/4, I thought there was a newer 1/6 Endoskeleton that came out already?:dunno

There has not been a 1/6 HT T800 Endo in quite a while. In a recent interview they said they would be doing a Diecast version though.

American gardens are gigantic, but in California unless you are a millionaire you probably wont have a very big house. Typical house cost is anywhere between 400k to 800k. This is for old houses. Newer ones in Orange County or Bay Area spike million and above and again .. Very simple ones. Other decent cities in US you can get awesome houses for 250-300k which is what prices shld be. California sucks, from property rates and taxation purposes. (And incomes are only marginally higher and never compensate for cost of living). I plan to move to Bay Area next year and my "shack" is gonna become a "capsule". Lol.

Oh yeah, we have been living in rentals for so many years. Not that rentals are cheap but the down payments itself will kick a few heads here and there. Its crazy here. If someone bought a house before 1998-99 thats good but Bay Area has spiked like crazy and so has OC post the IT and health care era...

As is i cry when I have to pay 8 pct ca tax on these figures. You could buy 1 extra for every 12...

I'm keeping it simple. Basically the DX10 head is gone and I'm switching out the jacket. So I'll have the opportunity to display both sculpts. I'm gonna hold onto my last MMS117 for the clean shotgun over shoulder look.

The only thing that'll look "off" will be the chest area on the DX10. Good thing I don't fuss over accuracy and whatnot.

I have done exactly the sme thing. One dx 10 body + partial bd with jacket on scan mode, one full bd sculpt with rod (all frm dx13)and one dx10 as is. So i dont need to buy another body especially when the body has way more damage than what he had in partial bd mode. So one way or the other its inaccurate to begin with.

I think the sculpt is looking a bit different cause i clicked the pics from the floor at a 30deg tilt and hence you can see more of his nose bottom and less of his nose bridge and hence the difference. Also, the cabinet i have has a thick glass and that makes it a bit hazy.

Exactly... I think or of what i remember he gets a couple of chest hits before the head hit and hence the damage gets exponential. You can barely see the damage in the scan mode when he is looking for t1000. To add to that the damage on dx13 is way too excessive. I was trying to pose him with the rod trying to get up, but as soon as you bend that bd knee you see so much of skin / damage it looks way overdone. And the pant is torn in excessive so you start seeing too much of his thigh.

So long answer short, i am completely fine with using the partial bd jacket on a dx 10 body with semi damage sculpt as one way or another it will be inaccurate.

It's not a crease due to the figure's body cos there's nothing under that area to crease it. And it doesnt rub off with water and I dont want to try with any chemicals.

Normally I wouldnt bother, but this mark is just too noticeable.

Don worry, they will send you a spare pant or ask you to cancel this one and get another one. Unless you have an ex. In that case 4-5 weeks later you will get a pant. If you take cash back may be 25 bucks or so.

Check out Batbrain's pic on page 911. Looks similar to me. Now, everyone is going to have different degrees of weathering due to the nature of these being done by hand.

I wish you luck getting a replacement but I have a feeling Sideshow may not oblige this particular gripe.

No, the white lines on Batbrains pic are from folds in the leather catching/reflecting the light. If you were to move the figure etc, the white would not remain.

Mine is not like that. No matter what angle etc you can see the line. It is like the black colouring of the pants was somehow brushed away or something.

I agree with you. It's not an intentional weathering. No one does intentional withering in a single structured slant white crease. Either there would be multiple or it would have been fainter. I suggest you reach out to them. I dont see any reason why they wont exchange. Having seen yours u will try to inspect mine as well closely.

Man, I really wanted to order this, using the $25 off thanksgiving code, but it is still listed as pre-order. The code expires tomorrow (2nd) and only works on in-stock items. Why is this still under pre-order if its shipping? :gah: I'm sure the status will change on the 3rd...

Love these pics right here. The bad quality makes it look like a scene from the Steel Mill. Don't think it takes away from the amazing sculpt at all.:clap

Thanks apemanryan...

but like you said, may be looks more movie like the way they came out. Thanks again.

On the figure front: Surprisingly if you see the 1/4 scale figure on sideshow site, it has a pretty good paint app. Also, while the pose is not that impressive the damage work seems pretty good.

If I have nail down the biggest issue with the paint on the dx13 is this whole red dab on the forehead, not on damage points but all around the damages, it is a horrible job i would say. Dont know if all have that massive dabs on the forehead looks like the whole portion had a blood cloth.

It seems so right? I am wondering if mine (full bd) is the only one that has a whole layer of light red paint on the skin all around the damage. Not just the bd but all around it on almost 60 pct of one half of the face. Infact there seems or be some around the semi bd sculpt as well. Not as much as the full bd one but surely there is red paint on skin over and above the bd parts.

morning everyone,

Does anyone roughly know when us mere mortals will start to see our regular version start to be shipped. If I remember from past releases is it normally about three weeks after the exclusive version? They start to show up in Japan then the rest of the world will get it.

January for Australia.

Still, that saves about $100 in shipping, so I can wait. I'll spend the money on beer instead. I can drink it while I'm waiting. :D

There's a discrepancy now isn't there. I hope HT sees it too and decides to do a new clean sculpt. Overkill to some probably, but **** all y'all.

I spent ages last night staring at this figure. Excessive blood aside, its a stunner. And I posed one of them like he's trying to pry his arm free of the giant gears using the rod - looked cool even without any diorama and now I'm gonna have to display one like that and eventually, somehow, commission or make a diorama for that scene.

It'd be great if they blitzed Terminator again like they did when they started with MMS117 and quickly followed it with 2 Sarah Connors, T-1000 and the Tech Noir T1.

They can even drop the 1:4 Police Shootout plans for all I care. They're gonna make it out of scale with Enterbay's figures anyway. 1:6 is where its really at.

Hopefully by weds, if not definitely by Friday

So I guess the only problem people have with the DX 10 now is the sculpt's likeness compared to DX 13 right? The body is fine on the DX 10?

Which has better articulation for those who have both DX10 and DX 13

That is a long shot I think. Releasing a redesigned DX10 that is.... This license is unfortunately not IM or Batman.

Is there anyone that can do custom HS for a non BD Arnie around here? Using the DX13 as a guide?

In the arm free pose did you face any challenge in bending his knees? Or did they bend good and hard!

Well the endo knee only bends to 90degrees. I don't think you can exactly match the position of his legs to the film.

However you can really nail this because of the PERS.

I did not. I mean its still not 100% realistic, from certain lighting angles it looks a bit like the PERS of old, the corners of the eyes can look dodgy in some shots. But its still hugely improved from DX10, and I rather pessimistically thought that was as good as it was going to get.

My only worry is that this one is a happy accident, that the next figure will go back down to DX10's calibre of PERS. Perpetual improvement isn't a foregone conclusion with Hot Toys unfortunately.

It can tilt but those gaps happen. You have to be very specific about the degree of tilt to avoid them.

Ive gone through 1000 pages in this thread, and from what I can tell, the mms jacket's quality exceeds the dx13, and most importantly the proportions are just right with great weathering. The weathering on the mms jacket is more subtle and natural. For some unknown reason, it fits better on anrold as the flaps are just right and flushed and gives arnold a very realistic tailored jacket. Ive seen 1 good homemade weathered DX12 jacket way back in the thread, but its not realistic, because one would never attempt this on his own lol.

Really? Hmm I have two MMS T2s that seem irrelevant now that I will have DX13 in a few days.

I might swap jackets to see if it is better but there isn't any bullet holes with the MMS jacket., so I guess it wouldn't make sense to put that jacket with the BD heads is there, because I don't have the DX10, nor do I want one now :dunno

Theres a guy on here, that did a custom with the MMS Jacket 30-40-50 pages back, I dont know which page. But it looks sweet. The holes done just right, and tears not over done. I usually see ppl put the MMS jacket on DX12. But i guess you could also put the semi BD one with the MMS jacket. It would be weird with no holes or tears though for sure.

Tailoring is better on the old MMS jacket. Personally I think that's very important in getting a T2 Arnold to look right. I'll put bullet holes and tears in it myself at some point, I don't expect that to be a huge problem.

MMS jacket on left, DX13 jacket on right. The DX13 one closes too much on the front, almost completely obscuring the battle damaged chest.

Don't think I'm crazy but I kind of like the look on the right which is the DX 13 right? The MMS jacket's arms look too skinny and awkward in that pose IMO. The head looks too big as well:lecture

Thanks for the pics but I think when I put both styles of jackets on the DX13 then I'll see what works.

Got mine. Also got some of the weird bubbles in my T-1000 statue and one of those weird white lines on the half-sleeve jacket.
Contacted Sideshow and took pics. We'll see what happens.

Also the "jam" really isn't so bad in person, but my torn endo-arm is indeed tinted red like A-Dev mentioned, and it really doesn't looks just plain weird.

All the endo-parts are. The broken endo-arm you would think by that point would have the least amount of blood on it though.

TheFiend
12-02-2013, 03:20 PM
Got it! No pics today but I'll post my usual.

The Fiend's small review.

Packaging:

Understated and direct. Just like DX10 packaging but with the appropriate battle damage theme and quote from the end. I think the little 'gift' ( is that what we're calling it?) is kinds lame this time around but it takes nothing away from the packaging. I think DX01 still was the best with the cards, I liked DX09 too.

Accessories:

Overall, very good with some niggles. All the hands look great and I like the choice to include the thumbs up. The bandolier has the appropriate weathering and seems realistic. The pistol, like the one included with the DX10, has a cheap plasticy finish. Which, like I said in the DX10 review, is weird considering it looked great with the MMS version. Don't know what happened there. Same goes for the thumper. Like the DX10 version is looks toyish, but this one looks worse because the broken end looks super cheap. The barrel of the thumper looks fine though. By contrast the machine gun looks great. Lots of small detail with a dull finish. I think the metal rod may be my favorite accessory ,ironic for such a simple accessory. The stand is cool and actually has some rust on it, I didn't know that. One thing is different with this DX stand, they included the movie logo.

Outfit:

Good stuff. Looks just like the MMS 'leathers' but with the DX10 cut. People are switching these out for the MMS stuff? Don't know why. The DX10 stuff had no weathering at all and had this soft shiny look to them so I'm glad they went a different route with this one. I love all the bullet holes and tears, they looks really good and natural. I'm curious to see all the differences we'll see with the battle damages parts on peoples figures. The tear on the leg looks too big to me but it's no biggie. The boots....have no weathering. WTF. :lol As far as the boots go they've received less weathering with each release when it should be the opposite, if that is the way it was going to be. In reality there should be weathering on all the releases including the 'clean' look.

Body: I usually don't have an area for the body but this is a special case. I'm really happy they made this a double jointed body so we can pull off more natural poses with the arms. Are the wounds a bit 'chunky'? Yeah, but I like it. Look realistic. The endo parts look very good and I especially like the broken arm. For some reason when I first saw the prototype I thought the endo leg would either hinder articulation or there wouldn't be any. :lol I don't know why I thought that but obviously the range of motion is as good as any other TT.

Sculpts:

Now the main attraction. The likeness is excellent if you ask me and they don't have that soft look that hindered the DX10. Within about a minute I knew I was going with the full BD look over the semi. I know the sculpts are the same but for some reason the full BD screams Arnie. The semi does too though but the full has the edge for some reason. I have no answer for this. I do think the semi BD has a slightly wide look to it so it may be that the full BD hides this because he has half a face? IDK. Either way both of these sculpts do not disappoint and easily the best Arnie HT has done. The blood is nowhere near as prominent as I've seen in pics. Now I don't know if this is just the differences in paint apps we'll see throughout this run or just the regular old 'looks better in hand'.
I'm very happy with the exposed endo parts. Again, mine don't seem as bronze. As for now I don't think any modding is in order. In fact, I don't see anything on this release that I want to modify. The endo eye looks awesome when lit up and it's hard not to want to keep him like that all the time. Im not a fan of light up feature etc. but this one was a must and had to be included without saying. Didn't someone need to replace the battery? I hope that is whats up with mine. The eye starts to dim drastically only after a minute or so. I can't imagine me using the light up eye a lot but still want it to work.

Overall: This figure is ****ing awesome. The niggles I have are easily overlooked due to the sheer awesomeness of this set. I don't make proclamations like this with new figures but this is one of my favorite pieces. It usually takes a couple weeks to know if something is truly up there with the best of the best. This is a figure that's been desired for a long time.T2 is a movie from my childhood so like Batman 89 and Star Wars it will always have a place in my collection. This is what it's all about for me; iconic, epic and nostalgic.

hot toys staff told me something about the dx13 buyers should take care of.
1. when taking off the head, hold the neck otherwise the ball joint inside the neck will be taken off easily.
2. put on the jacket before changing the left arm.
3. the liquid t1000 statue including the head is easy to get scratched, so be careful. a cloth is included for wiping the statue.
Wow, loving the level of detail. The head is a b*tch to remove, and I think it's causing the socket in the neck to dislocate. Not much I can do, even with trying to hold the neck. The (exposed) left leg seems shorter than the right. Nothing some putty under the boot won't fix.

All in all, a happy camper. Thank you, boys and girls of Hot Toys (and SSC), for the minute attention to detail, from the box, to the figure.

As I've mentioned before, I jumped on this in early november after starting this hobby in Jan and focusing on Batman and some Marvel. After getting tired of seeing people in costumes on my shelf, I decided to get this guy. I REALLY loved T2 when I was a kid and remember geeking out when I saw the 3D version in universal studios, so I'm definitely feeling like a kid again looking at this badboy.

In regard to QC, I also have the weird white line on the sleveless jacket (right arm) and the tiny bubbles on the statue. It also had a scuff mark but not enough to warrant a replacement IMO.

Everything else about BD Uncle Bob has been said already so if you're still thinking about puling the trigger on this guy, shame on you!

Be careful with chrome paint Guyver. The only 'real' chrome paint is quite thick and kills any detail, it would certainly ruin joints as well. It's quite globby and dries like resin. Lots of silver paints which claim to be chrome but are just silver, those will work fine.

Be careful with chrome paint Guyver. The only 'real' chrome paint is quite thick and kills any detail, it would certainly ruin joints as well. It's quite globby and dries like resin. Lots of silver paints which claim to be chrome but are just silver, those will work fine.

I would either be happy with a chrome such as r5150s achieved on this endoskeleton -

or failing that I'd accept something comparable to HT's own job on this:

There's a nice silver showing there^. Some blood like above is OK I think but HT went completely overboard on DX13.

Great pics, Robbie. :rock




I'd listen to Rory on the chrome paint. The ones I've worked with have been goopy. But my experience with it has been very limited.



Cool. :hi5:

Tell us what you think.

Actually it's a silver chrome acrylic paint I've used for many years, I was thinking more of a wash or a light drybrush.

If you try it I'd love to see it. What brand is it?

I can't tell about the metallic on the arm, considering it's tinted red, but Testors Model Master acrylic steel is an EXTREMELY close match for to the metallic paint on the head and chest.

Of course, I have no doubt that somebody's going to be painting all of that chrome sooner or later.

Thank's skull . My only flaw had with my set was having to reglue a hs magnet back on. Other then the t2 box being too wide to fit in the detolf and am super happy with this release. I LOVE THE T1000 statue it is the cherry on top of this release. Also Recieved me a FREE calender included THANK YOU sideshow.:yess:

Yeah I still haven't taken a look at the T1000 yet, I've yet to really dig into the set yet, I just set-up scanning pose and displayed it. I have to get another full set to display the full BD look too, this set is just to much awesome to take in all at once:panic:

I have not checked it out yet, too busy playing. lol .I Think the best way to grab the t1000 is just put your finger in his hole lol and have no prints left on him.
