Thanks guys and I know how you feel :lol I just said "Oh, to hell with it" and did my own thing on that one pose :wink1: Was going to do the scanning pose again, but wanted something different, so I grabbed the rifle and handgun. It looks pretty cool, but a photo shoot will be happening tomorrow, once my camera battery charges up. Different poses will be on the way.

i don't have a figure yet, and when i will, your posts about PERS mod will be far far away.
can you please say again why the mod is needed?
because without that i cannot understand the point and mechanism of it.
i took the eyes out and put them in on DX10 several times so i know the mechanics of the head, just cannot understand what exactly you did here except for changing the built-in short lever for the longer one.

Don't panic guys. If you do the mod and don't like it. It's easy to put back the control stick. Just snap it back into place along with the plate and screw the screws back in. I've done it many times already, but I prefer to leave the control stick off.

You don't have to do anything with the PERS. If the way it comes suits you, then go with it.

I just think I got more movement and better PERS positioning now by removing the control stick that's all.

I don't think the PERS were reaching it's full potential before, especially moving the eyes to the side. Of course it had horrible looking down movement as well.

Like I said nothing I did screwed up the figure, head, PERS, etc. If I want too. I I can easily snap the control stick back into place, retighten the screws and presto, it will be as If I didn't even touch it to begin with.

The PERS setup is that easy to mod or undue and put back in it's original form for this sculpt anyway.

But for now I like it better with the freer movement, without the control stick. But that's just me.

I think you quoted me on accident cause I didn't say anything about your mod man :wink1: Do what you must and have fun.

I feel like mine might've been taken out of the box, but I'm not sure. A similar occurrence I had was with DX10, which had the chip and another part already in his head, and some other pieces seem like they've been handled before, but I purchased it really late during those times when one would pop up after being SOLD OUT for a day or two, so I figured it was one that was returned or something. Nevertheless, the flap on the box was partially ripped but I've seen that before. The cardboard outlining the figure and covering the hands had a crease on the top middle. Usually that happens when taking it out to see what's underneath, so I thought it was weird that it was creased already. And finally the T-1000 has some prints on it. Regardless, it is a really nice figure and I'm not going to bother exchanging it since it's EX.

Just curious, did anyone else have this issue?

Just got mine. The left leg seems to be a little shorter than the right making him lopsided when he stands. After a few minutes I was able to make him stand straight but as soon as I mess with the left leg even a little bit, he goes all lopsided again. Is there something wrong with the leg?


Here's a pic. Right leg on the right. Left on the left.

Does anybody have any suggestions or tips for what I can do? I removed the pants to check the joints and everything looks fine so I don't think anything has to be popped in or anything like that. Ankle pegs seems fine too but that is where you can really see the difference in height.

Hate to keep bumping my own posts but I'm really hoping someone can help me out here. Has anyone ever had a problem with any hot toys figure where one leg was longer/shorter than the other?

if that was just for more freedom in movements, i get it, will definitely try on DX10 and DX13 when i get that long lever )

Listen to these two, Nintenjoe. This was a common problem with the Dx09. I've had it happen to other figures too. Just get a firm grip on the longer leg and push upwards.

Mine is sealed in box... Both the t1000 and the Rob pat head. I dont intend to use any of that. I ordered ex cause it was the same cost for me as regular back then. I wont pay anything extra for that head. But that's just me. Although, if i do display the t1000 in the future i will probably display with the Rob pat head. Just cause i happen to have one.

My personal view they shld have given an extra body as exclusive ... Like they did for dx04 ... Would go a long way for me....

The RP head isn't too important to have, really. I guess it depends on the price at your LCS after taxes and if it's worth the difference to you.

Aside from the prints on the statue (and those could be from the factory) my box has the bends and damage in the folds (and I got mine pretty much day 1). Really think the box was not made very well, to be honest. Many of the unboxing photos I've seen show some damage to the box like in your pics.

Interesting, so I guess it was just poor packaging.

I really want a second one to use the second sculpt and other accessories but funds are really tight right now. Would it be just as costly to purchase the DX13 body, shirt, pants, and boots separately on the eBay?

It's too bad that the Endo arm from the MMS version want fit on the DX13. The full Battle Damaged look with the complete exposed Endo arm (un-damaged) might look pretty cool.

E.Bay is brutal, from what I've seen. For those prices, I would just pick up a second figure. If you keep it for a few months and let Toy Anxiety's supply run out, you should be able to sell off quite a bit of your extras a-la-carte and make some of that $315.00 back. I thought about doing it, myself, but think I will either replace DX-10's head with the semi-BD head and semi-damaged jacket or buy a second DX-10 down the road.

those creases are pretty common. I guess these are packed manually, so i would assume if some packer dint care, it's very likely that creases happen and also some finger prints may show up... I have never ever checked for finger prints on any figure, i mean unless they are glaringly obvious. But are there any other flaws?

Mine has that exact same crease on the cardboard insert right above Arnies head. I wonder how many others have that same one.

Mine too. I've seen it on other DX inserts so I don't mind.

Other than those, everything seems fine. No broken or missing parts. There were definitely smudges on the T-1000, I should've taken pics but I was disgusted that I wiped it already, haha. This didn't come with any plastics wrapped around the arms or legs or head right?

I was a bit concerned only because my DX10 seemed to have been owned before, and returned most likely. Bear in mind, I did purchase it extremely late, maybe around this late spring/summer, when it popped up on SSC's website. The pieces that would go in his head, the computer chip and core, were already in the figure's head. The plastic encasing did not have them in there, so I figured someone had put it in the head and left it there when returning it. There were some other things that seemed off about it being brand new MiB figure as well, but I do not recall at the moment. The figure also felt like it had been posed around before.

But it seems that this occurrence with the DX13 happened to a few people so it's probably poor packaging. Nothing as bad as the DX10 I got, and even that wasn't very problematic, just that I was expecting a brand. new figure and not one that was handled and returned by a previous owner, but it's understandable I guess.

E.Bay is brutal, from what I've seen. For those prices, I would just pick up a second figure. If you keep it for a few months and let Toy Anxiety's supply run out, you should be able to sell off quite a bit of your extras a-la-carte and make some of that $315.00 back. I thought about doing it, myself, but think I will either replace DX-10's head with the semi-BD head and semi-damaged jacket or buy a second DX-10 down the road.


That's a good idea. I'm not very experienced in selling things though. Would I be able to find some help on here with regards to prices? If I purchased a 2nd one, I would want to sell the heads, the accessories, the T-1000, and the jackets.

I cant say of your dx10 that could be returned one dont know, but look at it this way at least the chip was in its head and the one who returned it did not keep it with him / her

As for dx13 ... Neither dx10 or dx13 came with any clear plastic on hands and feet etc. if i am not mistaken it comes with a 2 side open plastic for the main sculpt. But i dont even remember that. After so many figures, i have stopped seeing these things. All i check is if things like pers are working fine, no missing or broken parts.
Infact mine came with a box ding. (Small). I remember ss last time not giving me any $ or returns for that cause they think its normal for some wear to happen and thats what the box is for. I even went down the "collector mint" etc with them but they have become a bunch of BS guys when it comes to refunds and exchanges for minor issues. Major they will jump and solve but minor they wont.

I think its a long shot... Even if TA sells out their stuff, for a year you wont get very lucky with making any money on anyting. Yes you may get 100 bucks for sculpts etc. but pretty much thats that. What i did was i bought a dx10 extra. Gave me 2 figures and also a dx10 sculpt. Not thats its better but u can go to and fro bashing a semi bd or even a different non bd version as and when i need.

My math was:

1) spares for semi bd : aprox 160 - 180
2) extra dx13 .. 340 with tax
3) extra dx10 from non taxing sites 225 odd...

So my math was clear, option. 3. I could live with some inaccuracies. However let Me tell you. I am still on the look out for an extra body and stuff for dx13 if prices seem less as we move forward else i will pass it....

Listen to these two, Nintenjoe. This was a common problem with the Dx09. I've had it happen to other figures too. Just get a firm grip on the longer leg and push upwards.

Or failing that pull out the shorter leg and stuff bluetack up into the socket then reinsert the lower leg.

Just glue it man. No one will ever notice it including you. Its a small thing for you to buy like a whole gun for it. Just put a molecule of super glue on it and keep it there for 7 seconds, you are all set. Dont be so ****. U could also use a piece of that thin bendable wire... And just out it like a key ring? Dont know but something could be done.

I don`t know for $300+ action figure I expect it to come in one piece.

I`d ask about a replacement.

$15 toy from TRU sure I`ll glue it but I expect a lot better from a $315 purchase to be honest.

I feel like mine might've been taken out of the box, but I'm not sure. A similar occurrence I had was with DX10, which had the chip and another part already in his head, and some other pieces seem like they've been handled before, but I purchased it really late during those times when one would pop up after being SOLD OUT for a day or two, so I figured it was one that was returned or something. Nevertheless, the flap on the box was partially ripped but I've seen that before. The cardboard outlining the figure and covering the hands had a crease on the top middle. Usually that happens when taking it out to see what's underneath, so I thought it was weird that it was creased already. And finally the T-1000 has some prints on it. Regardless, it is a really nice figure and I'm not going to bother exchanging it since it's EX.

Just curious, did anyone else have this issue?

yes me to mate and mine was retaped don't know if it was retaped at sideshow or fed ex I did contact sideshow to see if I can get a new box but they said they cant help but will pay $15.00 refund and then they said We wanted to take a moment to confirm that a refund in the amount of $15.00 will be issued directly to your credit card on file. We ask that you allow 7 to 10 business days for your financial institution to apply this refund to your balance. If you have any questions about posting time please contact your financial institution directly as they will have the most accurate information.



Also please expect the earned rewards points for this order to be deducted from your balance

so they give me refund then take my points for something I feel that was not my fault but what makes it even worse ive noticed peoples exclusive editions converting to orders thanks for nothing sideshow

Has anyone ever had this problem? I went to switch out the head and the entire plug that's inside the the rubber neck started to come out. I stopped where I was and pushed the plug back in but still managed to get the head off. Do you think the plug has come disconnected from the plastic structure underneath?

There should be another plug at the base of that neck mechanism. It's likely to have just came out but there could be a cracked plug too. Similar to the first night out Bruce Wayne Batman feet plugs.

While pluging the head out, try to tilt it sideways, that ways it less likely to pull the plug and only have the ball pop out from under the head... But to be honest it should not happen...

This is why I asked. I've had several of these rubber Arnie bodies by now and few other different muscle bodies but never had the internal plug come out. I think I'm just going to pop it out and see what's going on in there, make sure it isn't broken. Is it easy to get back in once out?

Just blast it with heat when putting it back in. One of my TTM20 bodies has that problem, but the plug is fine. Just not to snug.

The same thing happened to one of my DX 10 Fiend.

That connector piece popped out with the headsculpt and was permanently attached to the ball joint. It'll snap back into the ball joint inside the true type body, but every time I would try to take off the head, the connector would come off with it. I even had one from TA where the connector itself popped out and was cracked. It's like the connector piece and head joint were too tight. It'll be a ***** for you, because obviously you'll want to swap heads from time to time.

Leon 911
12-14-2013, 05:33 PM
I had the same issue, so what i do is while popping the head out i do it sideways, that ways the sheer stress cause the neck ball to come out of the socket rather than pull the socket all out. Same dx10 figure. Just be careful, but it works for me.

i would recommend you to never swap heads at all.
one of mine had broken - the ball on the bottom just broke off. i had to purchase a new head.
p.s. is this the metal scull with orange juice removed? i remember you were the first to do it, or do i mistake?

Okay so I pushed down on the right leg as hard as I could. I didn't feel anything move or snap back into place. I also messed with the left leg. I pulled that one a little bit and it extended an extremely small bit. Anyway, I put the ankle pegs and boots back on and everything seems to be fine now. I'm not getting any more leaning on the figure so thanks for the advice guys! Something worked.

This is why I asked. I've had several of these rubber Arnie bodies by now and few other different muscle bodies but never had the internal plug come out. I think I'm just going to pop it out and see what's going on in there, make sure it isn't broken. Is it easy to get back in once out?

The plug has come out on my DX10 a few times. If I grip the neck a bit to hold it in place, it's okay.

I'm sure its already been talked about but i watched T2 on tnt tonight and didn't see where the grenade launcher was damaged like the way it is with the dx13. Did i miss something? It definately wasn't chewed up when he was scanning for the T1000 in the steel mill scene.

It gets knocked away by the T-1000 in that scene. When it is found again when the T-800 is full bd, the stock is broken.

You get a little stick - looks like a drum stick - and you put it in the back of the eye after you take the back of the head off. You can then move the eye.

Thanks for that. Congrats on getting yours.

I think there are imperfections to the hairline and the shape of the head but overall it manages to look more like Arnie than any previous Arnie sculpt by HT. I agree that they nailed the age this time and I love the paint apps of the skin (though not the excessive blood as has been discussed many times)

Another thing that seems to be improved is the neck and neck/head connection. On the DX10 this whole area looked terribly unnatural and stiff (the very thing people complain about all-in-one head & necks looking like). Here it looks about as natural as a ball-joint head is going to look, so unless I'm going to complain about the ball-joint head, well, I no longer have a complaint here.

Where I mentioned the shape of the head still being imperfect, well that's true I think its still slightly wrong, the forehead seems too sloped and that has some knock-on effects with the top of the head, but overall though I'll take that over the DX10's huge puffy expanse of hair toward the back of the head.

I find that DX13 looks enough like Arnie that you won't tend to see problems unless you're specifically and directly comparing with screengrabs. There is nothing that was clearly and plainly off just having it in front of you as IMO there is with MMS117 and DX10. I had to study it intensively with pics of Arnie on my laptop to find the problems that I did and I think that's a clear sign of the progression they made. If you're just holding the figure in your hand and posing it like the film it is easy to enjoy the figure completely, imagining all the scene recreations you can do. And I have done that almost every night since I got it.

Dunno if it's already been posted, but the reg version is in "checking inventory" status on Sideshow. Guess will be going waitlist, soon. Still have an opportunity to PO another set from a local distributor (arriving in January) but just not sure I want to have that much invested in a single release. The upcoming scarcity kinda makes me want to jump, though.

Invictus Sol
12-15-2013, 12:21 PM
Just checked, only 16 left there. I figured this would sell out pretty fast just given how strong the release was, but am surprised that it looks like they could all be gone before Christmas. Wonder if they'll end-up doing a second run. I've seen that before on Sideshow, too.

Could simply be a second shipment. I've seen "checking inventory" before prior to another shipment, happened with Luke. Can't imagine they're already out.

They might. Insanely popular, iconic character, seems like a home run release. I can keep my conversion, I just need to dip into the savings account, which I hate to do. Won't be able to replenish it until mid-late January bc of the delay in paychecks and the 2 weeks off.

True. But with Luke they did that and then that second shipment must have been small because it didn't last very long.

Also even bbts had lots of Luke's. Alter ego is sold out, bbts has 16, ebay still has several, but who knows how long those last, tho they are the best price right now, at $315 shipped.

Right before this went to checking inventory at ssc, they weren't even offering flex pay on the ones they had.

Yeah, you're right. Kinda getting this muddled up with some other stuff I was watching on the site that just went checking inventory/waitlist, but those releases are about a year in.

Agreed it's not great to dip into savings but it is a relatively small amount that you'll be repaying in about a month, so I'd go for it. If somehow it does get sold out, the secondary market prices would be pretty brutal, I would think.

Interesting, I've seen that a couple times before, too. This is just such a great release that I wouldn't chance it. If you've got an Ex conversion, safer to keep it and pay yourself back later.

Wor-Gar
12-15-2013, 01:03 PM
I got on the WL late so I'm not confident mine will convert... unless there is more coming.

I just can't see this set being limited or in low amounts already given its the last T2 T-800 that everyone would want. Truly, a T1 Police Station version is the only 'big' one left.

The thing with Alter Ego and BBTS getting less inventory has more to do with SS forcing their hand to narrow the discount margin on retail sales. Thus retailers are ordering fewer.


That all said, I have to decide if I should jump on the ebay prices now, or risk the wait for more stock next month. I've won that game as many times as I've lost though.

Very true. This last year SSC has jacked up the retailer cost and places are definitely ordering less from them... Which means SSC should have a greater share of the stock, which makes their selling out, or "checking inventory" even more intense.

They did? I bet it wasn't that many. Probably the stock held back for replacements.

That always happens. They hold back I think about 10-20% of the stock for replacement parts. Whatever doesn't get used goes back on sale about 3 months after release/sell out it seems.

Yeah, thinking more about it probably War-Gar is right. HT and SSC would be leaving a ton of cash on the table if the run ends now and my local distributor not shipping until January makes me think that they're part of a second shipment. On the other hand, these guys often do make unpredictable or contradictory decisions, so I guess I wouldn't be super confident about it one way or the other.



You're the devil lol
Haha, sorry. I agree 100% in principle not to dip into savings but as long as you know for it sure it would be paid back in a month, I don't see the harm.

SurlyJ
12-15-2013, 01:25 PM
I agree, the only harm is that you never know what happens in life, and there have been times when I say "dipping into savings, paying back in a week" and that's exactly what happens. Then there are other times when you do that and something comes up and you can't replenish the savings. For example, I didn't know until yesterday that I need to fix my rear breaks this week, and this ****ing toy costs more than that lol.

Was busy for quite some time since yesterday, just wanted to thank everyone who replied for the advice on the DX13 and a 2nd figure. Since there are several figures releasing sooner than expected, I will probably have to stick with just one, but I guess it would be fun to repose and try different things over the course of time. Thanks again!

Think that's a good call. A second full figure is a very nice luxury but it's kinda cool to switch between looks every few months, too (think I'll be doing the same). Just too much coming out next year for me to double-up on one release.

yes me to mate and mine was retaped don't know if it was retaped at sideshow or fed ex I did contact sideshow to see if I can get a new box but they said they cant help but will pay $15.00 refund and then they said We wanted to take a moment to confirm that a refund in the amount of $15.00 will be issued directly to your credit card on file. We ask that you allow 7 to 10 business days for your financial institution to apply this refund to your balance. If you have any questions about posting time please contact your financial institution directly as they will have the most accurate information.



Also please expect the earned rewards points for this order to be deducted from your balance

so they give me refund then take my points for something I feel that was not my fault but what makes it even worse ive noticed peoples exclusive editions converting to orders thanks for nothing sideshow



How much did they deduct from your reward points?

Arm peg broke off the other day. Was swapping the arms and next thing you know, the arm wasn't fitting properly.

Wasn't using any force outside of the norm so was a bit shocked when I found the broken peg inside the socket of the BD arm.

Getting a placement body this week but couldn't help but laugh at the instructions they give you when they ask you to break the original.

I received my DX13 last week. Fantastic figure I really love it but with a "*" beside it. I will be very honest a part of me is tuned off that it cost me $300 and as a result has questioned my love of HT a little bit. I feel the scale is at a complete balance right now. Once side loving the figure and the other side feeling the price has become out of hand. Up to this point price did not matter with my HT purchase but after this purchase I am starting to think "Is this too much"? I am fearing that the high prices may start to eat up my desire to own future figures as a result stop collecting and begin to sell off my collection. The new SS Darth Vader will be released soon but I am not too thrilled about paying $250. I think the scale is starting to tip.

Yup. This is exactly how I've been feeling lately. $300 for a single normal sized figure? Yeah, I don't think I'll ever spend this much again on a regular figure like this. I have to budget and save for these things and I'm noticing it's taking longer and longer to do that. I'm starting to ask myself if it's really worth it.

But this I don't get. I hear this a lot. People stop buying so they feel compelled to sell everything off as if the only reason they collect is to 'add to'. I'm not saying that's what you do. Why wouldn't you just keep the stuff you have?

Thats how I feel. I tell myself Im just gonna focus on the last 2 figures then I will stop. But honestly, with Hot Toys keep remaking old figures into better ones, and with newer movies coming out and for them to cook out great looking figures, I dont see how we have a choice. We will just end up selling outdated ones for newer ones. This will be that same story we tell ourselves every release we wanna buy.

Gakken85
12-17-2013, 10:15 AM
That's part of collecting IMO. staying ahead of the curve and selling pieces.

I'm always selling something.

I have a few pieces that I love and wouldn't part with that make up the core of my collection... but tastes always change. I think the important thing is just not getting addicted to the feeling of buying something new, and not buying things you don't really want to collect. haha.


Also, I don't really understand the idea that just because you can't "keep up" with releases you have to "Sell all your figures and stop collecting."

Sell a few you don't care about anymore to pay for new stuff you really do want. Why would you sell everything just because you think one piece is too high? Buy a few less figures per year?

Not sure why people get so dramatic about it. It's like anything else in life. Manage your money and make good choices.

I have been waiting for Batman Returns for almost two years. Two years ago I was excited and felt like I could afford all three. Today I am not sure. Tomorrow I might not care.

I agree I don't think I will be buying a figure for $300 anymore. I will admit I am having a love/hate relationship with my DX13. With "I spent $300 on this?" screaming louder. Which is taking away from my enjoyment of a fantastic piece.

its because of the pers stick, guyver took off the plastic cover of the pers(unscrewed it), removed the stick, and used the stick for the bd head to move the eyes
it gave him more range

just leave the casing open(don't put the cover back on) and place the back of the head on
problem solved

If you mean the LED fading it does that. But what I noticed at least on mine, if I turn off the LeD for a few minutes , and turn it back on again, it's bright again, now it could be just mine but I think maybe HT did a auto fade option to preserve the battery.

He means light showing through other parts of head, like for instance through the other eye or plastic seams.. this is a super common problem with cheap lighted plastic toys and even as a kid it would make me crazy...

I think he's aiming to get a bunch out before Christmas and all the others will be arriving in the early days of January. So you should have a nice package to come home to mate.

I'm bummed to report I'm going to be contacting Sideshow's CS about this one...the less BD head has broken PERS. One eye is stuck and isn't moving...the other won't match the angle the stuck one is at so he's got either a lay eye or crossed-eye going on.

Ugh...I hope they can replace just the head...if not, the whole thing is going back. Oh well... that's what I get for impulse shopping, eh?

Bummer man, I'm sure they can replace just the one broken hs for you. Fingers crossed and good luck.

Can't you just remove the PERS system and clean it? Like Guyver's been saying. May be a little piece of something in the eye socket. Worked like a charm with Indy. Sounds scary but its really easy to do.

Try to unscrew the PERS cover , tug off the control stick, pull off the PERS socket and flip it over and snap back in place. :lecture

I think the PERS is jammed between the socket and the stick. Mine had beyond horrible side movement, so I did all the above including pulling off the Actual PERS eyeball socket flipped it around and snapped it back in place leaving the stick off.

There's noting the eyes can't perform now :lecture

Has anyone tried swapping the battle-damaged LED head onto the MMS117 body, and if so, is it an easy straight swap? And how does it look?

Looks horrible, neck on the MMS117 body is way to long and wrong color for the sculpt

Very easy swap though. Just take the ball joint off the MMS117

I always thought there was no way getting the DX heads to fit the MMS117 body.

Yikes! Thanks so much for the pic, that's just what I wanted (though I was hoping it'd look a little better!)

Got the most recent COOmodel M79 (real metal/wood version) and, as before, haven't the foggiest ****ing clue how to attach the sling. Why can't they just rig them up at the gawdamned factory. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually but FS.

I've been considering getting that myself, came real close the other day to ordering but its way overpriced I think, I love there minigun and use it with my dx10 so I figured that would be cool to get for my dx13, but nearly 40 bucks for a thumper is pushing it, everything in this hobby is getting way to far ahead of itself in terms of pricing.

I'm not that guy who constantly complains about prices but every once in a while I stop myself and think, they really want that much for this:cuckoo: I still want it I just don't want to pay that much for it, unless you tell me its really worth it, so whats the verdict a-dev, is it the bomb or what?

Also after complaining about that thumper price, I thought it would be funny to announce I just received my 2nd dx13 today from BBTS:lol

Like a ''what if he stuck around and didn't have himself Terminated'' scenario.

I'm the wrong person to ask really, I spend stupid amounts of money all the time on multiples and parts on ebay. I do like it (eventually got the sling on, probably not exactly how it is on the box) - real metal and wood and that's without compromising the look, basically the same as HT's one but its not plastic. It feels nice. Lovely real metal grenades too, although as usual, too small compared to the ones on his bandolier in the film.

Overall, nice but not essential if you can find a cheaper version.

I do the same man, as in buying multiples of terminators, but sometimes I stop myself, I want the metal and wood version just because its metal and wood:lol just off put at the price a bit. I think I'll pick it up after the holidays, moneys tight at the moment due to Christmas, thanks for the response buddy:hi5:
