100% agreed. I don't know what they were thinking for TS.

Also agreed. But the T4 T-600s are nevertheless a cool looking bit of machinery, love the sounds they make too.

Picked up the T-1000 to display with the DX13. They definitely compliment each other.

how u put the arm in? its so hard to pop on?

Be careful, while its a bit tight its an easy snap on:

1) get the jacket off
2) pop in when naked once and check alignment,
3) then remove the arm again
4) put the jacket on
5) plug the arm in slowly with some pressure.

Don put the jacket after plugging the bd arm in, as you will break some of the chrome painted part and or tear the jacket. Put jacket first and then the arm.

Tip: while pushing in push the bd jacket sleeve a bit up else the arm will keep slipping from your hand.

If none of this works .. There probably is a problem :(

When I first got my DX10 I was convinced that he was arnie now I have just put my dx13 next to it I think he looks like arnie's best mate Steve. How they have moved on since the dx10. Hoping it won't be long until they release a clean version of the dx13 can't be that hard for them to do maybe the dx16…

Yep a PS Shootout is long overdue from HT, and a Battle Damaged Arnie from T1, how he looks after the tanker runs him down. Put all that lot in your next DX pls Hot Toys. :pray:

Ive seen so many PS bashes that I'm more interested in the BD trucker look. I think the puppet was pretty scary looking.

As far as long overdo? Eh, maybe. But would we really want a BD T1 Arnie during the MMS117 days, or the DX13 days? Of course it could be argued that the MMS136 was awesome, and it was, but I think a BD T1 would look better than ever if made today.

If the T-1000 catches the light just right, I can see circular patterns of light scratches. I'm not surprised and I don't care. Under general lighting conditions I don't see it.

Yea I would suggest handling the T-1000 puddle as little as possible. Wear some soft cloth gloves if you do.

12-24-2013, 02:20 PM
I could have done without the T1000 puddle altogether.

If it was to be included, I would have preferred the pose when it was coming up from the tiles. The current pose just... meh.

U mean in the prison? ... But that would be out of context to what they were trying to achieve, the whole mill scene fight. Am sure if they made any other pose we would complain asking why this one in specific was not made... Just my thoughts...

Agreed with Leon. A T-1000 coming up out of the tiles at Pescadero would have been too random (much as I hate to use that word which teenagers these days apply to everything). It would have no use with the T-800. What they gave us is perfect for use with a BD T-800, from a really memorable part of the film - one of the first 'Woah' CGI moments of movie history. Made perfect sense if you ask me.

Invictus Sol
12-24-2013, 06:41 PM
Yeah, personally I love it. I don't think it added a great deal to the price so it's not like we'd have saved a ton without its inclusion. One of the photographers had it posed behind Arnie as though it were rising up, ready to strike, and I thought it looked fantastic in that context. So there are some different options, with a little imagination.

12-25-2013, 08:36 AM
I like that T-1000 scupture...my only (very minor) nit is...I wish there was no seam where the head attaches. Of course I get it...couldn't have had that exclusive head-swap (which I passed on...just looks weird) without the seam but...the whole thing would look really amazing w/o a seam.

Right now it just looks...real good :)

(SSC is sending me a new BD head to replace my broken one....looking forward to that)

Love these guys! Anyone think I should put the semi-BD head on the DX10? The skin tones difference may or may not bug me, I'm not sure, but it is a better sculpt, unless you think it looks fine with sunglasses as it is now? Cheers! and Happy Holidays!

A -dev is right. Its perfect for the scene. But still would have wanted something different. Its great for completists and diorama people, but I don't like it because the T-800 has to interact with for it to make sense/look good. Now a statue of him in the biker gear on his knees looking at his broken arm would have been killer! That, or just after he pulls himself together from being blown to pieces. Either would have worked for the steel mill sequence.

I put it on a dx 10. There are bigger errors that float from figure manufacturers than what u will notice with the head on a dx10. Unless you are charging 10 bucks a person to see your figures ... You should be ok! :)
Ideally if you are a passionate terminator fan you would want a bd body. I would love to have one more extra but i spent money on things (i totally regret) and not on extra bodies on these. So if you have money buy it, if you dont put on a dx10 no heart ache...

Once again if you have money u shld totally buy an extra body, if not then it shld be fine...

Thanks for the reply! I'm also a bit short on money so I didn't get a second body. I think there was one going for $190 with the BD shirt, pants, and boots as well. Some auctions I had been watching for the individual pieces would've totaled around $160 I think. It would be nice to have a second body but I probably should save.

It cannot be displayed by itself without the T-800, and even then looks hokie when it is.

At least the jail scene could be used....

WOw this figure is beautiful! I was in amazement when I opened him up today, the face sculpt is pheonmenal and the body, especially the battle damage... blew me away completely. I've only collected predator figures so far but this is a really really nice piece. Really happy to have it as it sold out at Toys2. I'm thinking about getting the dx10 too and putting the less BD head on him .. but maybe sometime in the future as I don't have all that much now xD. I would really like to get a T600 endoskeleton as my next figure.

What do you guys think; does Hot Toys not make enough of their figures? I can't believe this figure is pretty much gone already?? Same thing happened to other HT figs recently, like Hulk & Blk Widow. I managed to grab those though. Just seems like HT is shooting themselves in the foot by not making more product? I'm on the wait list for this piece, I guess I'll see what happens. Might just wait for the police shoot out T1 fig that I hope they make. Just seems strange to me...?:dunno

Well there's a couple of things going on with this release, one thing is this was likely one of the most antisapated terminator release in the past few years, the one everyone was waiting for, so with that there was a year to pre-order it so if you really wanted it you should always pre-order.

There's always a chance for a second batch to be produced, they have done that in the past with popular releases but not so much lately, likely do to tons of figures in production, even a bunch that have been bumped ahead of schedule by several months.

The other thing I noticed on this release has a lot of people who are not even fans are buying the DX13 just because its a hot figure, well done, highly praised and all that so that has contributed to the lack of stock available and also people buying multibles to achieve the second look.

In the end you had a year to pre-order and a month of it being in-stock just to grab at your will, beyond that its you snooze you lose:nono

Got my replacement today. Was quite surprised with what was included. They shipped it out in the DX13 box + brown shipper itself with everything minus the heads, hands, T-1000 and the base (but oddly included the crotch grabber).
They gave me a full body with clothing and even all the weapons and the endo arm.

Was told to only send them a picture of the nude body destroyed which I'm going to have to do now. :(

But I'm pretty happy none the less that they basically sent me a free second DX13. All I need to grab is another nude body after I destroy the old one to have my second figure completed.

Broken peg. Snapped off when I was swapping the normal arm to the Endo for the first time. With only half of it there, whatever arm attached to it was fairly loose. Heard there were a couple of other members that had this issue as well. Not sure what went wrong, but the peg broke off pretty easily. Didn't use any force outside of the norm when pulling off the arm as there wasn't any restraint when trying to do so.

That's where I say that those figures don't need to posed in the most accurate way. Of course it's great to pose the original fight in all it's glory, but this way the how fight could've unfolded is great too and just presented so like like, speaking of posing them.
I especially like the one where the T-800 is dragging the 1000 to parts unknown (maybe toward the smelting pool, having acquired another human piece of speech: "Come here, you little...").

Well there's a couple of things going on with this release, one thing is this was likely one of the most antisapated terminator release in the past few years, the one everyone was waiting for, so with that there was a year to pre-order it so if you really wanted it you should always pre-order.

There's always a chance for a second batch to be produced, they have done that in the past with popular releases but not so much lately, likely do to tons of figures in production, even a bunch that have been bumped ahead of schedule by several months.

The other thing I noticed on this release has a lot of people who are not even fans are buying the DX13 just because its a hot figure, well done, highly praised and all that so that has contributed to the lack of stock available and also people buying multibles to achieve the second look.

In the end you had a year to pre-order and a month of it being in-stock just to grab at your will, beyond that its you snooze you lose:nono

Yeah, I guess you're right. Just feel a figure should last at least 3-6 months before "selling out". And, it's just been a tough year $. I should have more in 2014 to spend. But, I guess I really wanted a T1 Terminator anyway, so if my wait list doesn't convert, so be it.

Yeah its a tough time of year for a release with the holidays and all, I need to hunt down another set or at least some parts to be satisfied with what I have for the dx13. Some figures stick around for years, others months and some like this will set out at release, all depends on supply and demand. The demand for this piece is extremely high and with photos like whats just been posted its no wonder why, those are amazing:clap

It cannot be displayed by itself without the T-800, and even then looks hokie when it is.

At least the jail scene could be used....

I respect your pov. But It's not supposed to be displayed by itself. The figure is t800 and this is an extra that they provided to be displayed WITH the figure not stand alone. Dont you think they would want to probably provide a stand alone figure as a t1000 supplement and not a t800 supplement. Long answer short, it's intentionally meant not to be displayed stand alone. Stand alone was not the objective for them at all and it would be too much for us to ask a stand alone figure, two head sculpts, two jackets, bd arms, loads of accessories etc for the price they gave at :(

I think the figure dx13 would sell as good as it did even without the t1000, it was nice to provide the t1000 as an option! I actually thank them for that :( as it really was an iconic fight sequence between the two! And could be produced still keeping prod cost low :)

You were right, put some clean pants on him and non-BD gloved hands from the DX10 and you've got a T-800 just after he faces the SWAT team up until when he leaps off the sliding-on-its-side Liquid Nitrogen truck. In that fall & roll he gets the knee damage and probably loses flesh off his remaining human hand.

Wonder how with such a heavy metal roll and all those sparks only one knee gets the damage. Rest of the clothes damage is like he fell of a chair. Anyways not picking as i understand they coudnt have shown him in complete shreds...

On a different note is his head as damaged as partial bd head sculpt before the roll? Cause i would assume not so... May have to pop the dvd.

12-27-2013, 06:19 PM
What we call the semi-BD is only the damage he takes in the SWAT shootout. I don't think he takes on any further head damage until the T-1000 rams the steel beam into him. I mean maybe you'd find some continuity errors with a bullet hole in a different place or different amounts of blood but I don't think they intended any more than 2 phases of facial damage.

As for the knee, I'm guessing he must fall primarily on the one knee leaving the other one unscathed.

Knee i understand its cause he slides first on that knee and only then starts rolling... Of what i remember or the other way round.

How does your wife / gf take this obsession. Mine is about to kick me out!

Well I haven't had to worry about that since July. I'm single again. The toy obsession wasn't mentioned as a contributing factor on her part. (realistically I'm sure it played at least some role though, even if it was indirect)

How long have you been at this? Sorry, you may have mentioned it before and I've forgotten.

Well i have been collecting for years - 7 inch ones over 15 years, hot toys / 1/6 over 2.5 years. I joined the forum only recently as i just never bothered to be on forums, as work never gave me enough time.
I have been with her for 4 years and married for 2. But my spend peaked in 2013. So if she ever dumps me its all my fault cause she is the sweetest thing i ever have laid my eyes on :)
Also, i am about 35 and that does not help much either, but she has been patient so far with the indulgence :) :) :) ...i am sure many of you are very young so, i guess there is always time to restart the dating scene, but for some of us... Gotta make it work man!

Same here buddy. :hi5:

A retailer here in the UK has broken down a few Terminator DX13 figures and I'm snapping up parts to bash a second figure so that I can display both head sculpts.

The DX10 or MMS pants will fit onto the DX13 body ok won't they?

Also would the MMS pants be a better match to the DX13 jackets as oppose to the DX10 pants, anyone?

Yeah, that's my favorite.

Like a-dev said, it would never happen but that is awesome nonetheless. Dragging him like a *****.


I was holding out for the SS EX but being that its "sold out", and the fact that two ebay sellers told me they were raising their prices -- and did -- I decided to jump on this with the last of a fairly low sale price of $313 shipped.

Couldn't hold out any longer. Very happy to join this club.

Splendid! Looking forward to your thought.

I would think either or. The DX10 clothes would just need to be weathered a bit. However I have heard of people using the MMS stuff and it works as well.

I was lucky to score a DX13 body, shirt, pants, belt and shoes all together. Then I bought an extra stand and bandolier strap. So now I just need to use the non ripped sleeve jacket with the semi damaged head sculpt and I'm done.

Cheers mate. A seller in HK has both versions available so I will need to snap one up ASAP.

I just got myself via Collectiblekitbash UK -

DX13 Body
DX13 Belt
DX13 Boots & foot pegs

And bashing that together with spare stuff from my DX10 and DX13 I will be able to display another Terminator. :yess:

I also bought a spare pair of DX13 BD pants and BD T-shirt just in case I need them in the future.

I did some body building today, but not the kind Arnold would endorse. I received my parts from Toy Anxiety to put together all my T2 T-800 looks. They weren't kidding when they said the belt was in bad shape. It was pretty shredded, and when I tightened it, the end ripped right off. I switched the heads and arms so the tattered belt would be part of the full bd figure. I recommend doing the same and never touching the belt on your stock figure.

Here are all my T2 Arnie's. The complete collection until something better comes along:

How did they managed to damaged those belts???
You need to be careful but they are not made out of toilet paper.
Hope mine wont be too badly damaged...
I tought they were BD on purpose ^^

Just saw the collectablekitbash part out of the DX,why people buy the body at that price???? Its around 150 usd, you can get one on ebay for 124 with free shipping from reliable sellers.

As written on the TA product page for the belt:
http://www.toyanxiety.com/terminator2dx13battledamagedt-800-beltasis.aspx


This belt is made of a pretty poor material. The surface tends to pull off, and nearly all belts get messed up when removing.


They may not be made out of toilet paper, but they tear like it.

I don't know about that other place but I bought the body for $80.

I already got a dw13 and yes the belt is thin but you really have to do it like a sauvage to damage it. Its surprising coming from a store who spécialize in 1/6 parts to not be more careful. If i can remove the belt without damaging it im sure they can... Well who cares i was just thinking out loud because its surprising :)

I have multiple full BD sculpts... it's interesting to note that they are different sizes.

I wonder if anyone has found a "smaller" semi BD sculpt.

Endosickness photo's the semi looked as good as the BD... not sure if it was the angle.

Amongst my haul from collectiblekitbash UK yesterday I paid £79.99 for the body and I was happy with that in the end. I thought prior to them putting it up on the site that they would be around £60 so the difference wasn't huge although I see today that it is now £89.99 so the prices are already on the up and up.

Getting it from HK and it would probably work out more or less the same and you have to wait longer to get it.

Its always about if you re confortable with the price you end up paying.
Theres is probably around 30/40 (including shipping) difference between the store and ebay and yep that is the price to get it sooner (same thing about the figures bought directly from hk when released, that is true only for the USA buyers because we in europe end paying those ebay prices when the customs and shipping cost are factored in, so i might as wwell get the figure sooner) i was just a bit surprised about the store price as im not in the uk its clearly better for me to get it from ebay :)

^ John Connor by Commando (no idea where he got any of the ingredients sorry) I put some staples at certain points in his T-shirt and camo-shirt so as to make them look not so oversized. The shirt is so big that it obscured the Public Enemies logo on the front which is always very visible in the film, hence why I folded the sides over a bit on themselves and kept them in position with staples - which I then coloured in with a black permanent marker :lol Worked :dunno

It now looks like a BDed MMS jacket and I'm thrilled with that :yess: I don't like the way on the stock jackets the sides of the coat practically obscure the BD chest completely, had to do something about it.

^ John Connor by Commando (no idea where he got any of the ingredients sorry) I put some staples at certain points in his T-shirt and camo-shirt so as to make them look not so oversized. The shirt is so big that it obscured the Public Enemies logo on the front which is always very visible in the film, hence why I folded the sides over a bit on themselves and kept them in position with staples - which I then coloured in with a black permanent marker :lol Worked :dunno

Really nice shot a-dev, Your john connor looks great:clap I do have lots of questions about the Little john but as you stated your not the one to ask. Love your set up man, keep them shots coming, you should start a collection thread already buddy:impatient:

Thanks. Regarding John I asked him all those questions you probably have, like where it came from, and you know what he told me? Don't ask (using the movie quotes loosely there :lol ) Actually seriously I didn't ask Commando anything about it, just bought it from him straight-up. I know where the head comes from and that's it - you probably know more about the rest of him than I do.

I'd love to do a collection thread but I'd be taking pictures of an ugly mess. I'd like to at least have detolfs or something and a new camera.

Thanks. I'll retake the Pescadero photos some day with him in them. Problem is he won't be easy to work with, this being a custom some compromises had to be made, his shoes are not flexible and he really can't stand unaided.

Paperclip trick is simply unfurling a paperclip and sliding it under the collar of the jacket. The you manipulate it so the collar of the jacket properly wraps around the neck rather than having such a wide arc. If you're doing it to a DX13 jacket though you're gonna need to address the lapels too (as I did) because if you don't do so the coat will be practically closed after the paperclip trick, and thus not accurate.

Something has been bothering me for years and I have to say it.

How the hell did the T-1000 in Terminator 2 function? If the whole thing was made of liquid metal that would mean that each individual drop would need to contain all his data and operational functions at a sub-atomic level. How did he move his arms with no mechanical muscle fibers? How did he speak with no voice box or gears? I know skynet was advanced but that's some super science level ****, a-la Reed Richards. I'm not buying it.

Now, the Terminatrix in T3 made sense. A combat chassis with liquid metal over it. That I can live with. James Cameron is suppose to be a "genius" but what kind of half-assing was he trying to sell me as a kid?

Whew. Now I feel better.

To me a movie can do pretty much whatever it wants as long as its plausible in the universe it establishes to me. I dislike when films, books etc. break their own rules. Pulls you right out of it.

One thing for me was the sending back of the t-1000 without a flesh covering. It goes against established rules. I understand it is explained in the book. It just sticks out in the movie. Of course technically. Those rules were established in the prior film.

Crisp pictures, excellent color. I love the warm light on Arnold, yet the silver blob remains callously cool.

How much time do you leave the papeclip on the jacket for it to set in place?

Permanently. Its invisible anyway.


A-dev what do you mean by staples in the lapels?

The lapels on the stock jackets don't fold over in the right location and they puff out a bit. So I took the jacket off, looked at the MMS jacket to see where I should fold the lapels (probably should have looked at the film itself though to be doubly sure), held them down and put a staple through them - as in the same staples that hold a magazine together. I stapled from the inside-out so that only the 2 ends of the staple would be visible on the outside and I then coloured those black. If you could actually get black staples that'd be better.

However while this worked pretty well on one of my full BD jackets I then tried it the semi-BD jacket with not so much success so I dunno, mileage may vary.


How was the T-1000 explained to be able to go back in the book?

Yeah, can anyone remind me? Was it a big bag of flesh or what?

There's quite a few people here that prefer the first (as I'm guessing you do). Yeah, I probably could have expressed my point better but IMO it's a shame to get caught-up on a device like that. It really doesn't matter to the story how or why the T-1000 is able to work. Just seems pointless to me to think about. Story, acting and effects are all top notch, which to me is what's important.

Wor-Gar
12-31-2013, 12:46 PM
Why is the T-1000's technology so unbelievable anyway? Nanobots that can bond (harden) or un-bond (liquify) in various ways. If molecules can do it, why can't nanobots? That is, if you believe in nanobots.

Like always with HT, third time is a charm.

I echo everyone else here in saying this is a fantastic figure. And while this was a $300 figure, I think HT should have just added the second body and bits and charged $400.

I gave one a pair of MMS pants with the knee slightly torn. I think they fit and look better as well.

Great pictures, Evil. You so rarely take them, but damn if those aren't purdy.

Thanks!.

[QUOTE=EVILFACE;6420015]A few of my pics!!

Like always with HT, third time is a charm.

I echo everyone else here in saying this is a fantastic figure. And while this was a $300 figure, I think HT should have just added the second body and bits and charged $400.

I gave one a pair of MMS pants with the knee slightly torn. I think they fit and look better as well.

GREAT pics- it shows how well HT did this figure. Figure of the year in 1/6 for me, too

Yeah, can anyone remind me? Was it a big bag of flesh or what?

Yeah looking into it maybe it wasn't the book, maybe a comic or deleted script sequence. Ive heard it explained like a thin cocoon or covering of living cells. Heard that often.

My number one technical problem with the actual filming is the short terrible sequence with the t-1000 dummy hanging off the back of the car. lol Im not super serious but its funny to me. I always thought that was kinda shoddy

Yeah I would rather it just be left alone. Wish the Starwars films would of been too. Flaws and all. I just remember being in the theatre going yeah thats not a dummy or anything lol Kinda pulled you out of the moment.

Love the film tho.

Its amazing the digital effects hold up today so well compared to others in that era. I think its because they focused on what they could do VERY well with them. Not just what they could do.

Nice display, Evil. Really considering grabbing another DX-10 for a semi-clean look. Wish someone would just make some black tee's suited for Arnold. Seems like such a simple accessory and yet so difficult to find.

Congrats, Yeah usually the DX boxes are bigger then regular MMS boxes, I think dimension wise the DX05 Indy is the biggest DX Box.
I think the biggest Hot Toys box so far has been for the 1989 Batmobile

All of your pics are excellent there, sir...but these two are real stand-outs...love the T2 & T1 together...great quality on display there with those two (Now where's Kyle Reese, HT?).

And that second shot...caught the attitude...

Yes...this figure deserves all the high praise.

Now...after waiting over a week to get something from Sideshow (they were supposed to send me a new head to replace the one I have with broken PERS...still nothing)...I decided to risk it and take the one I have apart. After removing the plate screws (didn't strip 'em...minor miracle there) and control stick, I see that yes indeed, the forked plate the joins the eyes has broken off the one side (the right eye) and won't stay on. I can move the eyes "manually" but the stick is out.

Not the ideal solution, but one I'll have to live with if Sideshow opts not to send me a new head. Maybe I'll try and get some shots up here at last. It's been great viewing everyone else's though...keep 'em coming, please!

Unrelated to anything, but I was looking around COO Model's site and really liked the look of their 5.56 calibre bullet chain. However, seems a bit pointless without a gun to go with it, so out of curiousity, does anyone know what the gun is that's pictured with the chain as seen below?

http://www3.telus.net/public/tacitus/Invictus%20Sol/COO%20Model%20Bullet%20Chain.jpg

Think it looks brilliant, but can't find it on e.Bay under CM's name, so not sure if they produced it (and no-one has any up for sale) or simply made a compatible chain to go with a gun manufactured from another company. Know it wasn't in the movie, but like COO's drum shotgun, I think it would look great with the T-800.

Saw that, but noticed no flex options, which makes me think they have low stock. Prices for this thing parted out on e.Bay are pretty crazy. Think it will be worth a lot a few months after it sells out for good, but just can't bring myself to buy a second set.

I just ordered this guy! I'm very excited. I cashed in my Sideshow reward points from all their holiday promos and used a Visa gift card I got as a gift.

This will only be my second sixth scale figure (my first was Sideshow Boba Fett) and my first HT. I was torn between this guy and Man of Steel Supes because of all the good I was hearing about both but ultimately it came down to me asking myself which movie I loved more and the answer was simple.

Based on the photos I've seen, I doubt I really could have gone wrong either way but this guy just blows my mind! I'm anxious to share some photos myself in a few days.

I wish they do a 1/6 T-800 police station assault and a 1/6 diecast endo. With that my T1 and T2 collection will be complete. (I don't need Kyle Reese :))

An excellent choice for your first HT figure. Mine was the T1 T-800.

Thanks! Want to add some more later...and still liking the new entries from other folks...

The head...No it's not. I'm still waiting. Just took the plate and stick off of this one (parts are broken inside) and uncrossed the eyes "manually".

Still hoping to get that replacement..I'll contact them again this week...

Am managing to enjoy this figure while I wait....
