Better hurry he'll be selling out soon. Sideshow has the regular on waitlist now and the other places prices are going up. If on the fence just jump on it. You won't regret it.

Well, mine showed up today. It was quite a day with him, 89 Joker, and the 89 Batmobile all showing up! WOW! :yess:
However, once I opened Terminator, I got the feeling he had been opened before. Like someone said on here last week, the signs were a creased, almost ripped, grey cardboard insert that you remove to get to the figure; and slight fingerprints on the T-1000. But that wasn't what bothered me. I noticed the full damaged head has a large glue spot on the left side of his face, right above the hole on his cheek. It's very noticeable and probably why it was returned in the first place. This was the head I wanted to display him with. :( I put some reward points in to get him; do you think they shipped me a "defect" since I didn't pay full price?
Now that he is sold out, I probably don't have very good odds of getting a replacement head. I was REALLY looking forward to him, and this really dampened my excitement.
Any ideas on how it could be removed?

Okay... so I got mine today and I don't know if I am just bored with these or what but it's like meh... he is cool and it's from one of my favorite movies of all time but I am just not blown away... and maybe it's the price making my decision... I have seen cheaper releases have better paint and accessories in past.. I don't know, maybe I am finally growing up. (at 36 :P)

But on that note, what's the proper way for the bandolier to lay? Mine seems weird... what does that random vertical strap do? For it to lay right it has to be on the front of him but it looks like an eye sore there... but the other issue is if it's on the back his buckle at his shoulder looks funny...

Awe were just having alittle fun with ya, don't take offence to it, this figure has been mainly universally praised and rightly so, its a home run IMO, but its cool if its not making your pants tight:lol

As for the bandolier the bullet damage on it should be where the chest damage is, however it moves around thoughout the film so there's really no one way to pose it. Just have the little tab hanging down as its meant to be a belt loop, hope that helps:wave

Yeah you seem to have the bandolier on correctly Klocket, and you've orientated the grenades the movie accurate way (even though at this point he shouldn't have any grenades left except the single one in the M-79). The rectangular buckle tends to be on his left shoulder for most of the steel mill scenes and as Skull said that would place the bullet holes over the BD chest.

I agree with those before me, Paramoremcr88, that photo of the Full BD head is glorious. But then again, every photo you take of every figure you have is as awesome :)

Speaking of the full BD head, if anyone's looking for a spare or is just going to buy parts instead of the whole set (like me), trusted EBay seller toyshomeb2 has a few more and is the cheapest at $60 :)

If you shave a bit of MMS117's neck (about 3-4mm) it looks much better. You have to jury-rig the connection a bit, but I like the way it looks on my shelf.

Of course it'll be the wrong colour. He wasn't dirty/modelled on that part of the movie. By the time all the battle damage he was all dirty.

No biggie, I can take a joke... just been one crazy month here which has probably caused part of my meh about this figure...

Okay... like the tab part that hangs, I have feeling mine is sewn on upside down... when the damage is at his shoulder the the tab part hangs up towards his head not down which is why in my pic I have it tucked under...

So, gravitationally speaking shouldn't it hang down??

Can someone show me how it looks at his back when the damage is at his shoulder?

Sorry for being a Nan earlier...

if you mean that little loop, it sticks the bandolier to the belt so that the main part doesn't fall from the shoulder or turn around under grenades weight.

i think it gets torn or unzipped or whatever later, so the terminator can move the grenade belt around its chest.

I always wondered what that strap was for, thanks for the info. :)

Seeing those shots, I still really wish somebody would make some accurately sized grenades and a corresponding bandolier.

12-18-2013, 07:16 AM
yeah. i guess it's impossible to achieve that without customising even on DX10 thing, and people said that DX13 variant is even shorter.
p.s. oh wow, just checked, DX10 variant allows it to be placed properly on the belt :D though it's sewn upside down.

It would be killererererer if I had a Cyberdyne lobby diorama but I still though it'd be cool to have some SWATs, a different foe for the T-800 to go up against. I think there was more than 8 SWATs in the film but the 4 I bought were expensive enough as I recall.

Well, its basically just DX13 with some non-battledamaged pants on and I'll give him my last spare MMS jacket. I think he had about 4 grenades left on his bandolier at that point and he moved them down by his side. I would have taken them off and handed them to Sarah if I were him, what would have happened if they got hit by bullets? I doubt the T-800 would have survived had they exploded on him.

I think I got over stoked. Package arrives today, but not really excited. I also want to add that I was actually BLOWN AWAY, by bits, by pieces, blown to hell by the DX10...To me that was THE ONE. Better than any Hot Toys figure I ever owned. I am not sure this one will be easily beaten. I know Ive so far seen 1 person not entirely satisfied with the DX13, but it got me thinking as well, since the price is so steep. Either way, being an avid T2 fan, and loving the dx10 so much, will post my feelings after work.

Looks good! I've decided to bite the bullet and get the fully damaged head - as much as I love the look of this figure, it's not something I can justify buying. However, a T800 head with an exposed skull / light-up eye is something I've been really interested in for a while, so I'm going to give it a go matching it up with the MMS117 / MMS136 figures I already own.

Yes!

This is exactly what I was wondering... I almost feel like cutting the loop away...

I won't but I think it makes a lot more sense for it to be cut because how else would it have slipped around in the film?

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

Thanks for the advice, men....I tried to take the four screws holding the PERS in place out to no avail. I'm afraid I might break it or strip the screws out if I try any more.

I've filled out one of those "help desk" forms at SSC...they sure don't make it easy to contact them anymore....no person there just to email to anymore like the old days...oh well. I'll see if anyone gets back to me on it.

In the meantime, I'll keep enjoying the great pics in here (yours are really cool guyver....)

Has anyone here in the UK who ordered from forbidden planet Co.uk not com got their dx13 yet? I ordered it back in May and in September they sent me an update to say they won't get their stock until the end of November which I know the release date had slipped but I still haven't heard anything since then.

I've got mine ordered with mothersbasement and they got their stock this week, so maybe forbidden planet get their stock from the same supplier. Hopefuly I'll have mine before Xmas.

I just put my Terminator custom together using the DX13 body and BD head. I used the DX10 leathers and weapons, and did some cutting in the outfit to expose the damaged bits.

Yes!

This is exactly what I was wondering... I almost feel like cutting the loop away...

I won't but I think it makes a lot more sense for it to be cut because how else would it have slipped around in the film?

M.glad to help.
by the way i don't think that it "slipped around" by itself or by movie mistake.
the whole event chain looks like this to me:

when the terminator is in the lift, grenades are on its chest, and the holding loop holds the bandolier in place.

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/Tinkey-Vinkey/Terminator/Terminator%202%20movie/a1_zps6d692aa6.jpg~original

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/Tinkey-Vinkey/Terminator/Terminator%202%20movie/a2_zps52f0c7a5.jpg~original

then the cyborg encounters the attack, sees the group of soldiers and realises what amount of pressure it'll take.

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/Tinkey-Vinkey/Terminator/Terminator%202%20movie/a3_zpsa95b7c37.jpg~original

after that is the screen time when the bandolier is turned so no grenade can be hit by a bullet.
that's the moment when the holding loop had to be torn, no other way. it's intact in the lift and it couldn't stay intact after a rapid turn. fits the terminator way of dealing with tiny problems :D
OR the terminator had time to free it gently from the jacket's belt :D
that can be checked in lots of later scenes but i'm lazy already.

* * *

if that was not intended, the whole bandolier thing would either stay on one place or move here and there all the time. but it looks like it was a special small detail. aaaand that's the answer to your previous questions about buckles, loops and screen time of one or another position, the very moment of its change.

I think you were actually right as well though. When he picks up the gas grenade launcher, he only has 4 grenades left (the top 3 slots are empty), while P.'s last shot, where he is walking towards the Swat, shows a grenade still in that slot.
Without checking the movie, I don't recall if he fires one more grenade in between, or if that grenade perhaps falls out while the Swat are shooting at him. Or it might actually be a movie mistake.

Some of these things it might have taken a few viewings alright and heck there's still some stuff I only noticed recently like the T-1000s arm is still liquid metal chrome as he is climbing into the liquid nitrogen truck. (after his having stabbed the driver with it)

However the grenade thing on the bandolier as Arnie faces down the SWAT has been a pondering I've had for a very long time. "What if one of the grenades got hit"

On your first point, yes you would be correct. Only full BD T-800 uses the BD-thumper.

As for the grenades, yeah pretty much. A semi-BDed face T-800 does have screentime with some grenades on his bandolier but not a full compliment.

I do feel a certain nostalgia about seeing a fully loaded bandolier on the BD figure because that was how the McFarlane Movie Maniacs 4 figure was first shown back in 2000 or 2001 - that was what I considered my first ever 'proper' T-800 figure, discounting the Kenner madey-up ones.

That's just the nature of the beast & prices will continue to rise. I think once it gets stuck in your head that a certain price range is too much for a figure, then it's time to look at other types of items to collect. I don't think anyone is jumping for joy at a $300 price tag. If a company makes a must have figure that you need on the shelf though, then most just make it happen. It's too bad you can't enjoy the figure without thinking about how much it cost you. I don't blame you for feeling that way & I've had similar feelings in the past in this hobby. Sometimes you get to a point where you must decide where to draw the line & either accept it, or don't buy :peace

I believe in real life the grenade has to travel at least 40 yards or something in order for them to be primed. It's supposed to be a safety mechanism to make sure the person who fired it doesn't get caught in the blast.

Since the grenade is unprimed it might just become damaged and unusable if it got hit by a bullet but it might not detonate.

That's what I always thought at least but I may be wrong.

Hey guise, I am back. I finally unboxed my DX13 today. I was skeptical at first, beacuse I really liked my DX10, and I was afraid of DX10 would overshadow the DX13. I didnt wanna be disappointed. At first I wasnt totally impressed, but was surprised how much presence it had. I was surprised how much I liked it too, because I was thinking Oh it cant be that great after seeing all the photos for like few months, and watcing reviews on youtube month after month, day after day until 2-3 am in the morning. But I am happy with the figure, I think the DX10 still has its place in my book, and that the 2 dont mingle. They have different place in my heart, and I LOVE both the dx13 and dx10. Mine also has zero paint, defects, or weathering issues. Only nit pick is the little small tiny circle sivler pieces on the jacket can come off rather easy, I brushed my finger a few times, and it just fell off one by one. It was an easy fix with super glue, but still, its kinda irritating. Also The t1000 sadly doesnt do anything for me. Sadly...anyway LOVE THE BOX, its beautiful, and hope you guys will enjoy it too. DOnt even worry, get it and worry later. Its absolutely stunning, and both sculpts are just AMAZING. I did notice also one of the jacket was a tighter fit, and the other slight looser fit. So some inconsistency here and there, but no biggy.

That little snap on the pants is a pain in the ***. I opened up my parted out gear to build up a second one and the peg was broken off the snap. Why didn't Hot Toys just make it all Velcro like the others? Atleast use a metal one instead of a milimeter piece of plastic.

I said "**** it", put the pants and belt on but now they don't close all the way and the belt juts out.

While the custom looks great and is great, now 500 plus for a fig with just avg accessories makes me respect everything that hot toys does. Even more! ...

See iminime recent work i am still a fan of. Rainman h and c is 500 plus. I dont care too hoots about a certificate of authenticity for an unlicensed sculpt. Will i never buy any more - i will surely do. However, i am a frank man. Just cause i spent 550 on something does not make it worth it. Its ordinary at best and trust me, this dx13 is way better so i stopped complaining. Lastly, do i respect the artist, yes i do. But, that does not mean i will go orgasmatic on something thats 6/10 at best! ....

Yeah those snaps are a pain. I never bothered touching those on Bane's jacket.

If you plan to have the pants on that body for a long time, maybe a small drop of superglue just to keep the snaps fastened would work?

See iminime recent work i am still a fan of. Rainman h and c is 500 plus. I dont care too hoots about a certificate of authenticity for an unlicensed sculpt. Will i never buy any more - i will surely do. However, i am a frank man. Just cause i spent 550 on something does not make it worth it. Its ordinary at best and trust me, this dx13 is way better so i stopped complaining. Lastly, do i respect the artist, yes i do. But, that does not mean i will go orgasmatic on something thats 6/10 at best! ....

It's a great set, but is priced too much. Could have done without the T-1000.

And gave us the smoke grenade launcher instead.

$300 is a lot. But for what you get in this set and the way this hobby is going: fair enough.

This is the best piece I own. Hands down. Even my Ma said that this trumped EVERYTHING I've had in my collection...and she doesn't even 'get' this hobby. :lol

I must be nuts:cuckoo:..I think $300 for what you get here is very very reasonable. HT has me...no doubt about it

I hadn't visited this thread for ages so when I opened mine up I was shocked to see the T-1000 statue. I then realized that the detailed sculpt was the exclusive. Somewhere along the way I thought the statue itself was the exclusive :lol

But yeah agreed. Completely unecessary considering how many looks are already available for the T-1000. Plus don't forget the whole purpose of a "DX" figure was to milk us even further. Adding BS gimmicks and whatnot.

Oh well, at least the DX packaging is pretty :D

Why do people get so sensitive. I spent money on a custom. I felt it definitely does not deserve 550 bucks shipped. I dont see for that level of sculpting and accessories i would spend 800 to a 1200 for dx or full sets whatever they are. Some that are priced as full set for 500-600 are great and iminime hovers around that, which is a great price point for the awesome sculpts they are coming up with these days. Just awesome. But anything which is not a full figure, costs 500 plus, and looks average, to me is a big spend. I am not saying they are bad, all i am saying is they are just not good enough for the price. FOR ME.

I would love to see a custom guy make a dx13 like figure with similar accessories. My view probably would be 5000 usd a piece.

I don't know. Why does it generate so much hype? Like it was oscar/emmy academy awards from people in their own home or bedroom.

How does a little head that only from a handful of die hard followers would know, warrant those prices for unlicensed work. If you took this to copyright and such lawyers, you'd probably find all this illegal. So how do those prices justify it? It's unlicensed. Yet some people pony up everytime.

I was out of MMS 117 jackets so my full BD T-800 is actually using the provided DX13 jacket - doesn't look too bad I have to say. The bulkiness of it actually works since Arnold's bulk was increased at that point with all the added prosthetics. So I think I can live with that.

I like the provided jacket with the dx13 set, I also like the mms117 jacket too, but don't see the need to swap them, the dx10 though is a whole other story. BTW if your not using a lot of your dx13 jackets are you planning on selling them?

I don't know about that. I prefer not to sell Terminator-related stuff 'just in case', for scenarios I haven't yet thought about. Even the T4 stuff that I have in my FS thread, for which I never listed a price, I'm not sure I will actually sell afterall.

Those bloody things, the figures are too nice looking. I thought I could purge myself of anything except T1 and T2, tried to box them up and immediately had second thoughts. Even stuff like Marcus Wright who overall is pretty irrelevant to the Terminator universe, he does add a kind of diversity, breaks up all the black leather-clad T-800s a bit etc etc.

I bought something custom, i dont like it (or rather i like it but it definitely is not worth the dollars). So... What's the big deal. I really dont need to know a,b or c to like something. It just was not worth the dollars spent. You like it. Great. Buy 100 for all i care man. Also, you being aggravated does not make or pressure me to like something i feel was ordinary. As for me talking, pls explain what i need to know to see if something meets MY EXPECTATIONS. (Which is a fairly accurate sculpt, accessories, packaging etc at a fairly reasonable price)

If you buy it for me and gift it to me and i dont like it i can understand you being aggravated ;) ... Infact, i bought it more to see what's with the whole "wow" thing with some of the customs and to be fair i spent a lot to just see something at hand. While great it definitely does not match the price point. If something i buy in the future will, i will be the first one to say it does. Fair?

You need to see it in hand. The DX13 looks anything other than a young Arnold, that's the DX10 for sure IMO.

I think this is the first complaint I've heard about the sculpt looking too young or an ' Arnie look-alike'.

I think this is the first T2 Arnie sculpt that actually looks its age.

Sorry that we offended. It was fine apart from the way you had him 'holding' the gun. I know attacking people's poses has been frowned upon but seriously that was going to get commented on, if not by the 3 of us that did, then by someone else.

Congrats on the figure though. Are you the one who had a PERS issue? I kinda suspect 2 of my semi-BD heads might have a slight problem aswell.

Agreed on the second point, the EB BD arm looks very bland and cleanly broken, not at all like he had to pry and wrench himself free from something.

About the age of the HT sculpts though, I would disagree. Like Fiend I think this is the first time HT have captured his T2 age.

Yeah...you guys were right...should've caught that and not been so hyper-sensitive when others pointed it out. That's what 15-16 hour days at work'll do to you...addles the mind.... :)

I just wanted to contribute a little something here...I'll try again after the holiday mayhem is over with work and I actually get some sleep and pay attention to what I'm doing... LOL

And yes....I'm the one with the PERS issue with the "other" head. Still waiting to hear back from Sideshow on it. Been given some good advice on how to deal with it myself from some folks here but...I'm pretty ham-handed when it comes to that kind of stuff and frankly, I don't think I should have to be pulling repair jobs on a figure I was just charged over $300 for (with shipping)...so I hope SSC gets in touch with me about this.

I'm still enjoying popping in here and seeing the great pics...this is an awesome figure that to paraphrase Leon, still looks great the more you look at it.

15-16 hour workday?? I can't envy that.

On the PERS issue, I'm thinking I might have a slight misalignment on 2 of mine, kinda hard to be sure. They don't move very smoothly. I'll try to open them up and see if there's anything I can do.

And yes, it is an excellent figure, I'm still staying awake rather later than I should looking at it.

You are right! ... I mean to some it wowed them right from the word go. To some other, it steadily grew on. For me, i just wonder the intricacies involved. Simply awesome, its tough to ignore the red but then i dont think anything else in 1/6 comes close.

Btw... I have not seen the enterbay one in person. How is the body damage work on it. Basically does anyone have any naked pics of that bd body. Never seen any or may be i just missed that part. Trying to see what the differences could be...

I bought something custom, i dont like it (or rather i like it but it definitely is not worth the dollars). So... What's the big deal. I really dont need to know a,b or c to like something. It just was not worth the dollars spent. You like it. Great. Buy 100 for all i care man. Also, you being aggravated does not make or pressure me to like something i feel was ordinary. As for me talking, pls explain what i need to know to see if something meets MY EXPECTATIONS. (Which is a fairly accurate sculpt, accessories, packaging etc at a fairly reasonable price)

If you buy it for me and gift it to me and i dont like it i can understand you being aggravated ;) ... Infact, i bought it more to see what's with the whole "wow" thing with some of the customs and to be fair i spent a lot to just see something at hand. While great it definitely does not match the price point. If something i buy in the future will, i will be the first one to say it does. Fair?

Cheers!

I'll happily explain. You DO need to know A, B & C before you make all of the comments that you do. YOUR EXPECTATIONS are built on ignorance because you clearly don't know the difference between mass produced licensed products and limited edition customs. You don't even know the differences that Rainman, Iminime and the rest of the customizers here have between each other. To understand and appreciate the costs of certain things it's important to understand WHY they cost that much. Like for starters the fact that most of the customizers here are working out of Korea not China, where it's more expensive to produce things. Ooorrrr.... the big one.... HT owns the factories and mass produces. When RM, Velvet, Beto, Iminime or any other custom full fig producers own the factories and start pumping out 4000, 7000 or 10,000 of a set like HT does... then you'll surly see their prices come down into the HT realm. But they don't do numbers remotely close to HT. You're looking more at numbers like 10-30 (VM & Beto), 30-35 (Rainman Full Sets), 50-125 (Iminime), etc. That's a HUGE difference in production. So I guess that I couldn't buy 100 even if I wanted to because they don't exist :wave

Another major difference is the hand crafted vs. the mass production aspect. Without elaborating on every detail, the sum of all of that is one is an "art figure" and the other is a high end collectible. I love and collect the mass produced high end figs (BW, HT, SS, EB, etc.) and I'm one of those guys that refuse to view them as "toys", but there is still a clear difference between custom and licensed stuff. Yes, there are things that are outside the capabilities of customizers to create that require a factory (specialized bodies like the DX13, intricate outfits like Thor & Loki, so on & so forth); but when it comes to the simpler things like Joker or Colton outfits or a suit like Coulson's, the best tailors on the forum can produce a superior outfit over HT. The individually hand crafted outfits that you would get from say Kato or Rainman are essentially as good as the prototype that HT starts off with, but the HT pieces that end up at your doorstep lose a bit in the mass production process.

High end customs are for those who want all the accurate bits that can't be easily found on the market and bashed. It's too bad that you didn't like Bickle but I'll say that you didn't get the best example to judge. Rainman's paint up on the Mohawk sculpt was FAR better than Aeons; nearly night and day. The sculpt with his paint is as close to the mark (or better) than most of what HT is putting out right now (aside from the best of their recent stuff like Coulson, Jor-El or upcoming Thor), but putting Aeon’s paint aside there’s no denying the quality in the outfit and accessories. For the DIY guys or the guys that are happy with the $200 or less build-up that's "close enough", high end customs aren't for them but those kinds of bashes are RARELY as accurate as a custom full set. Bickle is a prime example; you'll never find that snub nose with pearl grips, a .44, a modded .25 on an arm-sling or a real silver belt buckle with that kind of detail (or any other parts of the outfit or accessories for that matter) ANYWHERE on the market. So the best bash out there isn't as accurate as what that full set brings to the table.

You have to be able to appreciate the hand crafted art aspect of customs to appreciate what they are. If you’re the kind of guy that feels "close enough" is good enough, then you definitely won't appreciate customs. It's appeals to people who are really detail orientated and are bent on accuracy and top quality. Unfortunately those little differences, upgrades and improvements come at a high premium. Most of that goes back to the one man show VS. the mass producing theory. Add all of that to rarity (collectability), the realization of characters in 1/6 that will most likely NEVER be mass produced to a high level (not a Brothers Production level) and that's what customs are all about.

And it's not that you didn't like Bickle that's aggravating (everyone is entitled to their opinion), it's the various other things that you say and all of these posts where you're talking a lot about things you know very little about. It's wiser to soak it all in and know what's what before going so hard




I hope a t1000 comes along ht style, loaded! ...

I understand that for sure, BTW i didn't notice you were selling your T4 stuff, always considered getting the T700 diorama, maybe one day.

I'm happy to keep my Salvation stuff, its a cool line and one of the only complete terminator lines hot toys actually finished, I actually like the line better after I added my super easy T-800 bash from salvation to the lineup, having Arnold in there makes it:)

^^ Man U need a break! ... Take a vacation or something. If i dont feel something for a certain prod i dont. period. I am not saying they need to change. I just dont think 550 for something thats just about ordinary is worth it. What part of this you dont understand. I think here is your challenge: (in ref to the product we are talking)

1) you bought 3 odd extra sculpts (350 plus)
2) you bought 3-4 extra unpainted ones ( 150 plus)
3) a dx (1200 plus)
3) some clothing sets etc (350 plus)
4) some h and c (550 plus)

I feel your pain and i also understand that after spending a fortune you need to feel the pressure to like it. But i dont man. Why is that a problem.

i am not trying to control the price, they can charge 3000 usd. But if i dont see value, i will say it!

I respect all your advise and suggestions etc. i never dismiss an advise even if its coming from the wrong source. But, dude, u need a break, i just dont feel its worth 550. What the heck is the problem. Again ... ITS GREAT, but not worth 500plus.

Some people have received dx sculpts with holes drilled after the sculpts were painted. Some also agree the likeness is not upto the mark. Some also agree that a specific sculpt has very big eyes. I STILL LIKE it. Just not worth the cost. No clue what the issue is.

Lastly - let's take it on PM... U are going all over!

That was a great post, actually. Really captured a lot of good points vis-ŗ-vis customs prices. Really they're art figures and a lot is in the eye of the beholder. Rainman doesn't do a lot for me (not knocking his work at all, though) whereas I love Beto's stuff. Don't regret ordering his Evil Dead 2 Ash even if Iminime has the license and releases an Ash at half the price. Just love Beto's work. Once I have his Leatherface I'm likely done with customs, though (except for Blade Runner... Goddammit, wish Iminime would do Deckard and Batty :mad:).

I think its not off, i think its always a challenge to find a balance when the expression on Arni was always so grumpy (had to be). In fact i think in person its phenomenal. Awesome paint job! Lastly, so many accessories, superb bd on the body. I think this and dx11 are my two best that i will always be torn apart. The only two complaints i had (which mean nothing in the larger scheme of things was a diorama and may be less redness) but again thats minus all for the overall spot on job.

Also, adev had a critical eye to it and pointed the hairline issue which i notice now. But in my imperfect world i think i can surely ignore it. But yes adev is spot on, when it comes to the hairline thing.

Cheers. There is the hairline thing but despite that I too would call this my FOTY. ''Duh'' I hear people say, but no, a Terminator figure will not necessarily be my favorite figure. I'm sure I chose Reeve Superman and/or DX09 Batman over the DX10. I liked DX10 of course but it had too many glaring problems that I couldn't objectively say it was better than Supes and Batman. However DX13 is good enough that I will say it is my favorite over the (also excellent) likes of DX14 Mime Joker and Hulk.

Bulls eye, i am still torn apart between dx11 and dx13 and not cause one is better over other. I think i have a big soft corner for HL and it represents his last great work, with a fairly loaded job by HT.

but the more i look at dx13 the more i am telling myself, that my heart may be able to support dx11 .. only So far! ... Dx 13 is a masterpiece by H.T! ... No other word!

Thanks, its the only line from terminator hot toys finished, hopefully they will finally finish T2 and T1 with the momentum created from this very popular DX13 release. That said if you have the DX10 your doing your collection a disservice by not getting the DX13, its miles better and if you only want one terminator in your collection to represent the film, its this one.

Be warned though, you may need to buy an extra set or hunt down the extra parts needed to complete both looks included in the set, there both just to damn good to leave one of those heads sitting in the box:panic:

I really don't see why people put DX11 in the " Figure of the Year " category.

Is it because of the accessories and extra smiling face, because I don't see ledger too much in it? :dunno. The hair is way off, too slick. If anything the DX13 looks completely spot on to the T2 persona in every way, right down to the body used.

IMO the DX11 is a great figure set, but it's a long shot for FOTY. Maybe if HT did Rooted hair. :lecture

Now T1 is another story; that's something that I'm looking to be more of a completest with. I have the T-800 (Arnie not Endo) but I'm praying with the rest of the camp who are dying for Reese and police shoot-out T-800 (my stupid little Neca figs will have to do for now :lol). I'm hoping for a V2 Endo too

^^ Man U need a break! ... Take a vacation or something. If i dont feel something for a certain prod i dont. period. I am not saying they need to change. I just dont think 550 for something thats just about ordinary is worth it. What part of this you dont understand. I think here is your challenge: (in ref to the product we are talking)

1) you bought 3 odd extra sculpts (350 plus)
2) you bought 3-4 extra unpainted ones ( 150 plus)
3) a dx (1200 plus)
3) some clothing sets etc (350 plus)
4) some h and c (550 plus)

I feel your pain and i also understand that after spending a fortune you need to feel the pressure to like it. But i dont man. Why is that a problem.

i am not trying to control the price, they can charge 3000 usd. But if i dont see value, i will say it!

I respect all your advise and suggestions etc. i never dismiss an advise even if its coming from the wrong source. But, dude, u need a break, i just dont feel its worth 550. What the heck is the problem. Again ... ITS GREAT, but not worth 500plus.

Some people have received dx sculpts with holes drilled after the sculpts were painted. Some also agree the likeness is not upto the mark. Some also agree that a specific sculpt has very big eyes. I STILL LIKE it. Just not worth the cost. No clue what the issue is.

Lastly - let's take it on PM... U are going all over!

Cheers!

I'm plenty good where I'm at bro. Don't need a vay-cay; don't need a break. You wanted me to explain what you need to know so I did; just to put a few things into perspective. Consider yourself schooled... for free. But that’s not all, you still have plenty to learn about certain etiquettes, politics and unwritten rules of the board.

You're numbers are pretty off; I bought 1 DX, 2 painted heads (both sold), 2 unpainted heads, and a Soldier clothes set. Don't get it twisted bro, I'm no newb and this isn't my first rodeo. I own countless HT, SS, EB & BW figs, over 10 Iminime pieces, 3 Beto pieces amongst plenty other custom bits. Bickle is my 8th Rainman piece. It's safe to say I have a pretty good idea of what's what. I don't need to convince myself to like anything as I knew exactly what I was getting into when I bought what I did, and it was all for a reason. The 2 painted sculpts are sold (only bought for comparison/back-up) and what I have left is everything I need for Bickle... and I'm still looking for another M65 jacket... so yeaaaaa.... I was convinced before I bought it all... which is why I did :wave

And like I said, getting aggravated has nothing to do with you not liking Bickle.

:hi5:

I have this fig in my possession but was deciding to keep it or not. It's absolutely the more interesting piece of the 2 DX's but I'm not a completest with this line and I'm not sure I need two versions of T2 T-800. It is sick though and I'm such a weak junkie that I'm sure I'll break down and keep it :lol
Ah, I see. Know what you mean in trying to limit your display to the absolute minimum necessary to represent the license. I'm trying to do the same thing but for me, one clean and one BD is perfect (likely I'll switch between semi and full every few months or so).

Leon, you don't need to explain ****. You spent money on something you feel was not worth the price plain and simple. Doesn't matter if they had to travel to Mordor to get the material to justify the price. You weren't pleased with the result.

I'm with Jack on this one. It doesn't matter how the end product came to be, only the end result matters. Personally, I wouldn't purchase unlicensed products as they are not respectful of the license owners. I do appreciate the talent of the customizers though.

You're helping me see the light. I'm really warming up to keeping it :lol

Like you said, when it comes to lines that I'm a more casual fan of, I only need the one look that I feel is most iconic. To me the clean version is a good overall representation of the character & movie but I'd be lying if I said that it's not a sick figure. I have to watch the Cyberdyne scene again and decide if this look is important enough to be a keeper for me.

Cheers. There is the hairline thing but despite that I too would call this my FOTY. ''Duh'' I hear people say, but no, a Terminator figure will not necessarily be my favorite figure. I'm sure I chose Reeve Superman and/or DX09 Batman over the DX10. I liked DX10 of course but it had too many glaring problems that I couldn't objectively say it was better than Supes and Batman. However DX13 is good enough that I will say it is my favorite over the (also excellent) likes of DX14 Mime Joker and Hulk.

Did u figure a way to do the gears in which he gets stuck... Would love to see what you are doing from a diorama perspective on this one (dx13)! ...

No, my diorama building won't really kick in till I'm done buying figures. Unless pre-made dioramas are offered in the meantime in which case they become as much a priority as actual figures. But if its a case of me having to shop around for stuff and trying to put something together myself that's going on the backburner for now.

You're completely missing what I'm saying if you think I'm trying to get you to like something. That's what you derive out of everything I said after I said twice that it has nothing to do with you liking it or not?

After messing around with this for a while I have to echo what many are saying, this is what a true DX should be, the overall package is just so impressive! It's so good I had to get two to get both looks. The last time I did that was the Jack Sparrow DX. This is to me the production 1/6 figure of the year. The Batman is the 1/4 figure of the year to me and is just as impressive as this.

Not sure how this thread started a discussion on customs, but Pop's post:


Like for starters the fact that most of the customizers here are working out of Korea not China, where it's more expensive to produce things. Ooorrrr.... the big one.... HT owns the factories and mass produces. When RM, Velvet, Beto, Iminime or any other custom full fig producers own the factories and start pumping out 4000, 7000 or 10,000 of a set like HT does... then you'll surly see their prices come down into the HT realm. But they don't do numbers remotely close to HT. You're looking more at numbers like 10-30 (VM & Beto), 30-35 (Rainman Full Sets), 50-125 (Iminime), etc. That's a HUGE difference in production. So I guess that I couldn't buy 100 even if I wanted to because they don't exist :wave

Another major difference is the hand crafted vs. the mass production aspect. Without elaborating on every detail, the sum of all of that is one is an "art figure" and the other is a high end collectible. I love and collect the mass produced high end figs (BW, HT, SS, EB, etc.) and I'm one of those guys that refuse to view them as "toys", but there is still a clear difference between custom and licensed stuff. Yes, there are things that are outside the capabilities of customizers to create that require a factory (specialized bodies like the DX13, intricate outfits like Thor & Loki, so on & so forth); but when it comes to the simpler things like Joker or Colton outfits or a suit like Coulson's, the best tailors on the forum can produce a superior outfit over HT. The individually hand crafted outfits that you would get from say Kato or Rainman are essentially as good as the prototype that HT starts off with, but the HT pieces that end up at your doorstep lose a bit in the mass production process.

High end customs are for those who want all the accurate bits that can't be easily found on the market and bashed. It's too bad that you didn't like Bickle but I'll say that you didn't get the best example to judge. Rainman's paint up on the Mohawk sculpt was FAR better than Aeons; nearly night and day. The sculpt with his paint is as close to the mark (or better) than most of what HT is putting out right now (aside from the best of their recent stuff like Coulson, Jor-El or upcoming Thor), but putting Aeonís paint aside thereís no denying the quality in the outfit and accessories. For the DIY guys or the guys that are happy with the $200 or less build-up that's "close enough", high end customs aren't for them but those kinds of bashes are RARELY as accurate as a custom full set. Bickle is a prime example; you'll never find that snub nose with pearl grips, a .44, a modded .25 on an arm-sling or a real silver belt buckle with that kind of detail (or any other parts of the outfit or accessories for that matter) ANYWHERE on the market. So the best bash out there isn't as accurate as what that full set brings to the table.

You have to be able to appreciate the hand crafted art aspect of customs to appreciate what they are. If youíre the kind of guy that feels "close enough" is good enough, then you definitely won't appreciate customs. It's appeals to people who are really detail orientated and are bent on accuracy and top quality. Unfortunately those little differences, upgrades and improvements come at a high premium. Most of that goes back to the one man show VS. the mass producing theory. Add all of that to rarity (collectability), the realization of characters in 1/6 that will most likely NEVER be mass produced to a high level (not a Brothers Production level) and that's what customs are all about.


is really a great summary on production vs. custom figures. It should be in its own thread in the customs section.

I'll happily explain. You DO need to know A, B & C before you make all of the comments that you do. YOUR EXPECTATIONS are built on ignorance because you clearly don't know the difference between mass produced licensed products and limited edition customs. You don't even know the differences that Rainman, Iminime and the rest of the customizers here have between each other. To understand and appreciate the costs of certain things it's important to understand WHY they cost that much. Like for starters the fact that most of the customizers here are working out of Korea not China, where it's more expensive to produce things. Ooorrrr.... the big one....

It did
none of those customs you have mentioned is handcrafted...:cuckoo:
maybe the first mould of the head (then they are only recasted pieces) and the clothes are sewed with machines..
and the new DOLL travis bickle of Rm has nothing of the de niro likeness...just for say..
to pay more of $800 for a figure that does not resemble either the character.it doesn't make sense..
then you can spend your money as you want...this new T800 is a figure mass produced.. but is amazing and the likeness of scwharzie is all in there

highends customs is only for those who want to spend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTP2RUD_cL0

this costumizers should pay for the licenses...or lower their ridicolous prices

the m65 of the ht colton is a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the rm jacket for travis
and please and don't believe that these figure either stitched or hand-painted because it would be stupid...

Can we all focus on dx13 guys???

As for Popcult and his whole 9 yards of article. There is a simple thing i believe in, whether there are 100,000 or 10 made of some product, whether they were hand made or were made in a factory? Whether they are signed versions or labelled as limited? They need to have one thing which we all possibly agree!

A certain value delivered for a certain cost / price.

Because ... as a collector i aim to have what i like on my shelf - not have something just because 10 were made or someone needled / crafted something personally and signed it! Or because someone worked day and night on it. If there is minimal likeness in the sculpt to a character, it does not matter if there was 1 made or 100.

Lastly ... Just like the creators efforts, my and my family efforts are very important in bringing those dollars home... So if i dont like something, i will say it.

Now let's all focus on dx13 pls...

I understand that for sure, BTW i didn't notice you were selling your T4 stuff, always considered getting the T700 diorama, maybe one day.

I'm happy to keep my Salvation stuff, its a cool line and one of the only complete terminator lines hot toys actually finished, I actually like the line better after I added my super easy T-800 bash from salvation to the lineup, having Arnold in there makes it:)

Anyways my DX13 came on Friday (I thought my retailer was getting him in Jan or Feb) and I have just managed to finally open him up today and he sure is a cracker. A second body is a must to display both head sculpts so I will get the necessary parts in January.

Here is some pics I took this afternoon of him -

Thanks guys. :clap

@P. Yes hopefully the IM stuff is moving away from their main focus and if there work on the DX13 is anything to go by then the future releases are going to look great.

Those bloody things, the figures are too nice looking. I thought I could purge myself of anything except T1 and T2, tried to box them up and immediately had second thoughts. Even stuff like Marcus Wright who overall is pretty irrelevant to the Terminator universe, he does add a kind of diversity, breaks up all the black leather-clad T-800s a bit etc etc.

yeah, I love the design of the t-600. The idea that it's the rubber terminator that Reese mentions in the first film. I always wondered what they looked like, and I love the horror aspect of it.

he didn't say they were ugly giant stupid orks so they spotted them easily.
"the sarah connor chronicles" depict the image of T-600 a lot etter concerning the above.

So I was dead set on getting a TTM-20/DX10 body for my second DX13 bash but now seeing that the TTM-20/DX10 body will be missing the bullet holes on the neck I may just get another DX13 body.

A pair of DX10 pants and DX10 grey T-Shirt will cover up the BD on the body and knee so it makes sense to go down that route I would think.

Reese didn't say they were giants either, which probably would have been the most identifiable trait really.

Reese didn't say they were giants either, which probably would have been the most identifiable trait really.exactly, so they were "normal" just rubber.
these are easy to spot due to fake skin:

Not sure how this thread started a discussion on customs, but Pop's post:



is really a great summary on production vs. custom figures. It should be in its own thread in the customs section.


:hi5: Thanks Johnny-boy. The savvy guys like you who have been around the block know the deal.

I donít want to derail the thread any further so Iíll have to bite my tongue as hard as it is and ignore the recent and future annoying posts

Glad to hear that you're enjoying the DX13!

Did you clean the endo part up Sid or is that stock??


Finally the mad Christmas period is over in my work and I can get back to some sort of normality. :yess:
