yep this set is a new fav. I think its funny the same day AMAZON wants to start testing drones for delivery. JUDGEMENT DAY or Cyberdyne is upon us lol and not much longer before they come self aware and kill us. lol
Easily the best HT figure. SSC should invest in drones too for 30 minute deliveries :monkey3

You can put the DX13 head on the MMS body but it doesn't look very good. The neck is too long. The TT20 fits well but the neck is a little thinner and doesn't have the natural shape. I can't speak on the DX10 because I don't have it.

12-03-2013, 06:28 AM
Alright, I think I have a problem...

I was admiring my DX13 after work yesterday when I realized the glue holding the foam padding on the less damaged is leaking onto the neck of the figure. Anyone else have this issue?

Rambler
12-03-2013, 06:29 AM
I got this yesterday, one day earlier than expected. Such an amazing piece and has such a great shelf presence.

I have the DX13 in full BD mode, and put the semi-BD head on the TTM20 i've had waiting for several months in the scanning pose.

I don't see how HT tops this.....but I know they will.....eventually.

Thanks guys. The chrome paint is on there good and proper. Just a little pressure with 90% rubbing alcohol dipped Q tips and the blood comes off. It's layered it seems like.

I think I'm one of the few who does not think the Full BD sculpt looks bad with the blood on the chrome. I would expect blood to remain after flesh is ripped from it. With that said, the first shot with some of the blood removed looks good. Once I have the figure in hand I guess I can make the final call whether to leave it or de-blood it.

Personally I would leave some blood on for this reason but I would take enough off that it no longer overwhelms the silver of the endoskeleton like HT saw fit to do.

Jaw dropping figure. I just wish they had a more suitable holding hand for the grenade launcher.

How is everyone having the hand hold it properly? It's a bit lob sided and I can't quite get it to look like it's holding the launcher naturally.

Overall my favorite figure in my collection so far. A ton of display options. No time to properly mess around with him though.

Mine looks to be about the level of blood that Fiend has after taking it off. My partial damage is more on the orange side. I may try removing some off it.

After sitting with it for a bit, Im not as crazy about the partial damage as the major one. I think the major one is dead on perfect. I think the partial looks too wide through the eye area. Still awesome just not as dead on.

I think you and someone else said that. Unless its been you both times.

I must admit I've been kinda suspicious that this may be the case, especially after Difabio shopped over the battledamage and made it look like a clean sculpt. It looked pretty fat-headed. I dunno. I'd like to be wrong.

Apologies if this comes off weird but are you using the correct hand? I'm using the right handed grip with the BD left arm and it fits perfectly.

That's a better finish than you could ever get with silver paint (which 90% of chrome paints actually are).
And I think full on chrome would be out of scale with this. That looks like problem fixed to me. :clap



Did you try on the skin? I'm still def going to repaint the skin/blood area, make it more detailed.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I really like the amount of blood my headsculpts have on the actual metal parts. In the right lighting, they really look like chromed metal with some bloody residue on them, which is exactly what I would expect. :peace What I don't like so much is the 'jelly' on the skin of Arnie's forehead.

All in all, I LOVE this figure. But if a braver man than I can figure out how to get some of that jelly off the forehead without messing anything up, that would be LEGIT. :yess::yess:

I will be doing the same thing. I have a ton of rubbing alcohol.

a-dev all it is is just plain simple rubbing alcohol. It can also be called isopropyl alcohol which is the same thing just a different name. You need to look for the stronger stuff that is 90'%. I've seen it come in 50% and 70% but you will want one that is 90%

Yeah I was watching the movie in HD last night and I did notice that he did have blood splattered on the chrome like the figure, just not so much on the skin.

anyways I'll be the judge.. got my tracking, DX13 on route... hopefully tomorrow, if not Thurs and Friday for sure!

I still don't know my ideas in terms of pics yet for you guys, because I have no shelf space or special shelves like the most of you have in all these pics and my lighting sucks! :slap

Can you remove some of the excess blood on the flesh as well?


:clap Nice work..good to know there are options!

Will the method work on the fleshy blood smeared parts

Maybe? I may give it a go later this weekend.


So...maybe a silly question...what kind of alcohol are we talking here? Can I simply break out a can of Lager? :lol

Any old generic 90% rubbing alcohol ,a-dev. I bought mine from Wal-Mart but you can get it anywhere; CVS, Rite-Aid, Dollar General etc.

Heres the stuff I bought.

I think you and someone else said that. Unless its been you both times.

I must admit I've been kinda suspicious that this may be the case, especially after Difabio shopped over the battledamage and made it look like a clean sculpt. It looked pretty fat-headed. I dunno. I'd like to be wrong.

I know I said it in my review I posted a few paged back.


The chrome part looks perfect now Fiend :clap
That's a better finish than you could ever get with silver paint (which 90% of chrome paints actually are).
And I think full on chrome would be out of scale with this. That looks like problem fixed to me. :clap

Did you try on the skin? I'm still def going to repaint the skin/blood area, make it more detailed.
Think I'm gonna do a job on this at the w.end.

Thanks Rory. :)

Like I said earlier I haven't tried it on the skin but it may work. That's a 'might' try.

I missed this. Looks like I'm not the only one that was fiddling around today. Looks like you took the goopy blood off the full BD sculpt? I guess that answers that question. With the blood off it looks even worse. Deep, gouging wounds. Ouch.

I enjoy watching the mods i never mod mine unless have to. I like the exposed chrome but think a little blood is good realy around the exposed eye mark's & cuts a great look. When i see the blood removed it reminds me of reese saying the 1st terminators were easy to spot rubber skin bad breath and no blood just added in lol. Also checked the free calender pics last night some very cool photo's may use as backgrounds in display later on after done with it.

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

I've used some products in model making from Mr Hobby - they're called Super Metallic paints. They give a very realistic (and durable) metal finish.

Just a warning though, they're lacquer based, so beware of them on the plastics used here and the underlying coats of paint. Fine on styrene and resin, maybe not so much on this.

What's your opinion Fiend..I'm curious if I should mod it.

At first I wanted to experiment on the removal of the smeared flesh blood, but looking at these makes me think all it needs is the chrome blood cleaned up instead.

of course lighting and background can change an appearance of a figure dramatically that's why I want your opinion on how it really looks to the naked eye after your mod.

I'm not above going full on when it comes to mods, example

No side effects a-dev. That layer of the blood on the endo parts must have been the last and thinnest layer they put on because even with me rubbing at it and the alcohol the surrounding parts weren't affected at all.

I think it looks great in hand. You should do what I did and just take blood off the exposed endo area in the back of his head first and see how it looks. That's way it's not visible and no a biggie.

Speaking on the blood smear removal, someone already did it. I think everyone missed it initially ,as did I. I came across it last night and quoted it for others who may not have seen it but no one commented. I can't remember who did it. The post is a few pages back.

Which is the one I ordered. I was confused at first, I assumed it was just an M79 parted out from COO's original set which I once had and didn't remember it having real wood or metal parts. I realised it must be new, hadn't heard anything about it though.

A few words of warning on the arm: I tried it last night. There is a lot blood paint on there and it's pretty hard to remove, and the 91% alcohol turns all the glue spots where the parts were attached white.
Probably better to just repaint the thing.

Holy **** get this...

I asked sideshow if I could get a replacement part...

I also mentioned I didn't get an angelica figure nor a calendar with my "pack out"

you know what they said...

Angelica was a domestic giveaway and i could have a calendar if I paid 22.95 for shipping and whatever customs fees.... :rotfl

*****K you SIDESHOW.... who needs you?

You didn't get a calendar with your pack out? That's odd, I thought everyone was getting one.

The Angelica figure makes sense though since it would incur extra shipping and customs fees.

OK, I'm in Calgary and figured that was maybe the case with Angelica. If they sent to us, they'd have to declare the full value of the figure which means potentially paying $50.00 in duties for a figure you never asked for and is probably worth diddly on the secondary market. Other thing is it's not like they owe us a free figure or calendar (no offense but it sounds like from how you mentioned it, that you felt entitled). I did happen to have the calendar packed in my DX13. I haven't opened it, yet. If you want I can ship it over to you (just pay shipping, of course).

I still don't think pics, even the best ones, do this figure complete justice.

The eyes and the paint look better than they are photographing. I just noticed the faint stubble work, which in person, doesn't just look like a bunch of dots. He also does not look unnaturally shiny/waxy in person IMO.

On a minor downside I did find something off with the hairline on his temples (or rather just his left temple since he's BDed on the other side). The hair doesn't come in far enough into his temple above the eyebrow level. Damn, if I could adjust that by adding in some extra hair paint....

I actually think this might be contributing to the wideness some people have seen on the semi-BD sculpt.

I can't unsee it now. But this could be fixable, a mere matter of paint. Well, not ideal without the hair actually sculpted but you'd have to really study it up close to see where hair was just painted onto skin.

I'm just not confident in my ability to match the hair colour and make it fainter right on the hairline like HT do.

I might buy a head for experimentation one day. Swear to god its just this one thing. I don't think there's anything else I'd change with these sculpts now. Something like the hairline is a pretty consistent and definitive aspect to Arnie's (or anyone's) likeness that will either be objectively wrong or objectively correct on a sculpt. In this case its a little wrong. If I could correct it I would be more happy with a sculpt than I've ever been outside of Enterbay's BD version.

When it comes to the face you'll never get a sculpt to encompass every possible scenario, every possible expression. There comes a time where there's just no point complaining if your figure doesn't exactly match a given screengrab. I think the likeness to Arnie on these 2 sculpts has reached that point. You could make a change to suit one screengrab but you've ****ed it up for another screengrab of a different scene where he appears to look different so why bother. It just looks like Arnie, fullstop. So I'm pretty sure I would leave the faces well alone even if it was within my ability to change them. Its just the hairline, which as I said, could simply be a matter of paint.

I will know soon enough hopefully tomorrow. I wonder if the sculpt hairline problem you're referring too might be because of PERS where they had to cut the head. Maybe because the way the hair is sculpted and the BD they had to mold to the face.

The hair in that area should cut in more towards the forehead. That it doesn't on the figure kinda makes the forehead/temples too wide in the frontal view. Only on that side of the head though because the other side is battledamaged and his hairline is altered there anyway.

You can even kinda see it there^ the way it cuts in more than it does on the figure.



Yeah I seem to be. But with this figure I think we are literally hairs away from perfection, with Joker and Batman they want to change just about everything.



Its all internal. Course I don't do pelvic thrusts as they walk past :lol Your wife and female relatives could visit Bray safe in the assurance that I would only be mentally letching at them behind a serene face.

How about MMS HS a-dev?

Looking at the film and these samples, I wonder what would happen if HT sculpted the hair to flare out more in the back and on the top like this. especially like the middle pic with John.

Would the Likeness be be even more spot on by the flared hair.

Man I was one keystroke away from pulling the trigger on this guy -- guess I'm just a T1 guy, waiting for the ICONIC T1 Police Station version with light up eye. :cool:

Why not have both, sir? :lecture I order you to order this figure dammit. T1 is better than T2 but this is simply Arnold masterpiece at your fingertips. :wink1:

DOOOOOOOOEEET!

I think they already tried flared hair with the DX10 and it didn't work. You can't really sculpt that in, it ends up just giving a weird shape to the whole head. As it is there are some who think they didn't sculpt it tight enough on DX13, to go even more puffed out - no way.

I might've..what was your post or comment.

I'll take your word for it, I'll start with the endo parts first. I think I'll try the BD arm as well.

I quoted an actual pic of the guys result with the alcohol. Both heads were in the pic with blood removed. Ill try to find it later.

As for the BD arm, see below ....


A few words of warning on the arm: I tried it last night. There is a lot blood paint on there and it's pretty hard to remove, and the 91% alcohol turns all the glue spots where the parts were attached white.
Probably better to just repaint the thing.

Yup. Its hard as hell to remove and actually started to ruin the look of it, so I left it alone.





Which is the one I ordered. I was confused at first, I assumed it was just an M79 parted out from COO's original set which I once had and didn't remember it having real wood or metal parts. I realised it must be new, hadn't heard anything about it though.

Yeah, and the grenades themselves are copper too. I miss my COOMODEL set. So much better than the DX10 stuff.

My DX13 was delivered to my work. The guys at my work said '' your new Action Man has turned up'', They said why is it called Hot Toys? Does it have short curly hair and blow up etc.

Endless tacking the urine out of me :blah:blah:blah :ignore: :lol

Hahaha I get the same ribbing from work mates.

Damn, arguably the BD arm needs the blood removed more than the other parts do, considering it was exposed for the longest time.

The DX10 may actually be a little more accurate in this small area (as roughly circled in green in first pic)^

Here's other pics of Arnie which I hope demonstrate what I'm talking about:

You may be in luck, because someone else had an order date of Aug 20th and it was converted today.
