I have to say no. This figure surprised me, and I'd been lurking here watching others post photos for a while. It looks good in pictures, but it's even more awesome in person. Ironically, this is my 13th HT figure and for my money it's right there with Jack Sparrow DX06 as being one of the most spot on representations of a character I have. HT almost always makes quality figures, but every now and again they simply nail it. This is one of those occasions IMO. I can't find a single complaint about this figure, and I'm a hard one to please.

Got mine last night. AMAZING figure as expected. A little disappointed as it was advertised as unopened/sealed... but the insert over the figure was ripped and the plastic tab that is supposed to keep the batteries in the head separated was missing. The light works but isn't what I would call bright.

That said, some quick pics...

I think I've worked out what's bugging me about the sculpt. I still think it's a smidge young (but nothing untoward), but it's the way the jaw is placed. Humans naturally have a slight underbite, and with this figure, it looks like it's been sculpted so the upper and lower front teeth are being held in line with each other.

It doesn't make the sculpt wrong, it's still undeniably Arnold, it just makes the jaw look like it's being held in a slightly unnatural position. Try it in the mirror. You're still you, you've just moved your facial features into a slightly awkward position.

My thoughts, anyway.

Still a very nice figure. :)

Not sure what about it makes it too young to you but regarding the jaw, Arnold specifically held his jaw in that position for the role.

Well, I'm in CA so shipping and tax put this figure into the $360 range. I paid considerably less with this seller, plus I'm responsible to ship this back to him if I want a refund and this thing is not light. I'm inquiring what he will offer to solve this issue.

lol I can't remember if the extended version inserts it by default or not. I assume you got the chip removal scene, the learning to smile bit and extended t-1000 malfunctioning in the steel yard as well.

BTW IDC for the old Sara ending but I do like the other added scenes. Only caveat is it makes the middle of the movie when the T-1000 is out of the picture even longer.

I dislike all of the extra scenes expect the dream sequence with Reese.

The movie is already long and all the extra stuff just make it longer. It doesn't help all the extras are non action scenes as well.

I'm a Big Biehn fan. So I like that scene too. I think the chip removal scene helps you understand why suddenly the T-800 starts learning. The most important addition I think is showing the T-1000 Malfunctioning. Showing that maybe it can be stopped.

That's a great pic too. I only recently started following this thread, so i haven't seen a lot of the previous in hand images.
To be fair, although i am a huge fan of the Terminator movies, i have *never* felt the need to add one to my 1/6 collection. But a few days back, Olly Harper posted his T2 retrospective and i reminded me of what it felt like to be 15 years old when T2 came out.
I went to see it about seven times at the local cinema while it was on release. I have never done that before or after for a movie. It would still probably be in my top 20 movies of all time. So now, i am considering picking up the DX10.

As for Bar/Barry, either will do. My family all call me Bar.
I should put "The Artist Formerly Known As Username" in my sigline i expect...

I have a pile of TTM20 bodies in my stash for projects, and all the Arnie Terminator head sculpts by HT, but till i saw Olly's retrospective on T2(I'll post it below in case anyone hasn't seen it and like's a keen insight on a movie they already love), i had never considered buying one. Till now, lol. I'll have to wait till a few of my pre-orders are in and paid for before i can get it. But i know places that still have the DX10 in stock brand new.

There were some hokey CGI moments in the show, but it wasn't that bad.

Loads of people say that they have no idea what it means. A guy on another forum thought it was some stylised nazi symbol...

It still could be. It's the beauty of designing yourself a logo.
Unless you tell people what it means, no-one will know.
It was quite the challenge to make a B and M characters mirror themselves at a 45 degree angle. I suppose the best logos are the simple ones.

On the oily adhesive from the black foam behind his chin, is this going to damage the figure over time? I've got some leaking out on the neck of my figure. I know OMG said to use Zippo lighter fluid to clean this off, but is this something we'll have to continue to do? Or is this just leaking a bit on the edge and once you get it off it will stay off?

I don't think this is going to be an isolated issue. We'll all probably see this on the necks of our DX13's at some point.

I got a fair few DX13 items the other week from Collectiblekitbash UK but he never had any stands up for sale unless they sold out super fast.

yeah i checked Collectibles Kitbash too and noticed there were no stands but all the other items. I figured he sold out fast, did anyone get one or see any?

All my extra parts are from a DX13 so i may aswel get the bd bandolier

Yeah I was hoping to pick up a stand from there but no such luck.

My second DX13 figure is all parts from the DX13 minus the pants which are MMS and the grey t-shirt which is from the DX10 but now I have displayed him with some of the items and weapons from my DX10 as well.

I have a pile of TTM20 bodies in my stash for projects, and all the Arnie Terminator head sculpts by HT, but till i saw Olly's retrospective on T2(I'll post it below in case anyone hasn't seen it and like's a keen insight on a movie they already love), i had never considered buying one. Till now, lol. I'll have to wait till a few of my pre-orders are in and paid for before i can get it. But i know places that still have the DX10 in stock brand new.



I liked all the Terminator movies, and liked the TV show too.
There were some hokey CGI moments in the show, but it wasn't that bad.

Here is Olly's retrospective review:

Even HT will only replace the part if you bought directly from them or from an authorised retailer.
And even then, they will tell you to take the item back to get a full refund.

I don't know if someone mentioned this before, but I remember there's someone posted that there's something weird about the semi damaged Arnold's right eye (his right, our left). Last night I opened two DX13, it's for a friend of mine, just to check the light up feature (if it didnt light up, I'd return them to my supplier). Upon close inspection, there's a slight difference on the semi damaged right eye, in that two DX13 figure. In one of the figure, the lower eye lids are more droopy, more open, just slightly (perhaps just 1 or 2 milimeters, but in 1/6 scale, that means a lot). The other one, actually looks better without the droopy lower eye lid. It looks more like Arnold. It's easy to miss unless you look at it really close, and for quite some time. That explains the pics in this thread, I think I saw some pics with great likeness, and theres another with weird right eye. I should've take pics, but my friend's already took em.

I got lucky and found a whole other set on eBay that consisted of the body, belt, pants, boots and shirt. So all I needed was the jacket which I already had, the second head sculpt and hands. Then I bought the stand and bandoleer separate from another website. So all and all it cost me about the price of buying a standard non DX Hot Toys figure but like you said it can get pricey fast either way. So go with whatever makes more sense for the value and your wallet.

Well I found a shop who sells everything I need to make my 2nd figure, total price is a normal 'non DX' figure like you said. But it might get very close to the price of complete DX figure if I have extra import fee. So it's tricky...

Glad I ordered one, too. Have it sitting in my Bag of Loot until the minigun comes in, in February. Personally, I think it's worth it, though it's a shame that from what I've heard the grenades are too small for the bandolier (and I guess too few of them, as well). Think they're made out of copper. Look fantastic, so it's a shame they won't get displayed. Only thing I could think of it have them strewn around Arnie's feet, but not sure I like the idea or not...

I'm certainly no toy expert but logic is, you contact the shop you bought it from if you have a problem. As for Hot Toys, thats another subject and a very complicated infuriating one. Thats if you can get them to respond. Many have had to take to Facebook to get the ball rolling after many emails before that. It's worse than British telecom.

Hey Momaw, they're just the grenades that come with the M79 Thumper (wood and metal version). I'm getting mine from BBTS (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=COO10025&mode=retail), though I imagine in Australia there'd be someone closer so you could save on shipping. Think the grenades look really good but are apparently too small for Sideshow's bandolier.

Lol, I know the price is pretty steep for such a small accessory, but real metal and wood sold me. Really only nit-pick I have with the DX-13 is the broken stock M79. Just looks really cheap, so I doubt I'll be displaying it. I actually quite liked the M134 minigun that comes with the DX-10, but after all the praise the COO Models metal version has received, decided to pick that up, as well.

In regards to the grenades, I believe a-dev said that they are too small for the bandolier. They look really nice, so I was trying to find a way to display them. Too bad COO didn't include a bandolier of their own with it, like they did with their plastic version. :mad:

Indeed. Not just correcting the symmetry but while one is at it one might aswell make the overall hairline more accurate. Pretty cool though. This is encouraging.

Well, I haven't heard of it happening to anyone else's but it also happened to my old Bank Robber Joker's shirt buttons. This is a terrible pic but you can see where both of the buttons on the right lapel are gone. Seems like it shouldn't be too hard to find something to replace them with, right?

hello everyone,

I still have my original Semi BD head so all is not lost :).
The head is just a bit of a mishmash really and very poorly painted :). I guess I have painted over some of the detail on the head. I was just seeing if it could be done. The hair line is off because I must confess (looks down at feet) I cut down a spare dx10 head I had laying around and used the hairline from the left hand side of his head and superglued to the dx13 head :slap. Then I used some miliput yellow to cover over the missing flesh and smooth it off. I painted over the milliput areas using nothing more than Humbrol 118 which is American tan. It's not a bad match but nothing compared to the original paint job. I am planning to find out how to make skin tones properly and will probably remove the paint and start again.

It will do me until the real ones comes out which will be the Dx16... maybe

Hello all,

Thank you all for the C&C regarding my Frankenstein DX13 clean head sculpt :). I’ll post some more pics with a better camera when I get home from work with it alongside the DX10, DX13 SD and BD head’s. I was originally planning to use my DX10 body to display it on but for some reason all the DX13 head’s I tried on it just look a bit wrong. I know the colour of the DX10 and the DX13 are completely different but I think hot toys may have slimmed down the neck and slopped the shoulder a bit more on the new DX13 body. To me the DX10 shoulders now look very square but it could be something to do with the material of the DX10 jacket made of and is a bit stiffer.

I should be getting some black matt paint to mix in with a brown I got to paint a few bits in the hair. I then need to matt varnish it I think the shine on the head is what is left over from the varnish Hot Toys have put on it.

My other hobby before I started collecting 1/6 scales figures was creating computer images in 3ds max and I was a stickler for detail so I can see me removing all the paint again resculpting the head a bit more to add some details are the eye….

oh no what have I started….

There definitely is something off with the neck besides just the skin tone difference. I had my DX13 head on my DX10 body for a short time and looking at other people's pics, it looks strange.

Yeah guys I agree. Though Magmax I don't think its the case that the DX13 neck is slimmed down, in fact I think that one is even thicker. Because the problem I'm seeing when a DX13 head is on a DX10 body is the neck looks too skinny for that head. He looks a bit bobbleheaded.

Now the strange thing for me is, since my biggest complaint about DX10 is the huge neck how is it that the seemingly even bigger neck on DX13 doesn't bother me or at least doesn't bother me anywhere near as much? I'm still formulating my ideas about why on earth that would be the case.

Yeah but the DX13's neck must have been correspondingly increased in size aswell to work with that bigger head. So relatively speaking DX13's neck is 'as big' as DX10's if I'm making myself understood. I hate DX10's neck so why don't I hate DX13's neck? For some reason the DX13 heads look more natural sitting atop those necks whereas DX10's head looks bizarre on its own neck, like the minoton in Sinbad.

My card was charged 2 freaking months ago because it was on it's way to the retailer. How the frig does it take more then 2 months to get the shipment in from the U.S?

I have tired to be patient and calm but I am just getting pissed at this point. The store has held on to my $345 for two months now with no sign of it coming other then the vague promise it is "on the next shipment" which has been 2 months waiting already.

I can wait just don't charge my bloody card 2 months early so I lose all of my buying protection from Paypal and my cc.

The DX13 head is indeed big. It's massive actually. If you compare it to the T1 hs' it's huge, didn't people day those were a bit pin headed?

I think the difference between the 10 and 13 on the neck is that the dx13 head and neck are bigger but the head is relative to the body, the DX10s isn't

You're right. The TTM20 's neck is too narrow for the DX13 Head Sculpt.

Here's an easy solution that i just inverted . :wave

Please note: I feel that the head sits too low on the TTM20 body , so i just used blue tack to raise it up a bit .

Good luck , be careful slicing the seam of the rubber torso cover right below the right armpit area. Once that is cut , carefully remove the cover , it is glued in the front and back , pull slowly.

The custom chest piece is a prototype , i plan on making a rubber one soon .

Brilliant. Masking tape thickly wrapped around the neck plug to thicken the neck presumably? Looks like it worked. And is that another new prototype for the BD chest? Looks better.

yes sir that's all it is. I may wrap a bit more to bulk it up a tad more.

No that's the same chest plate , just repainted . Still not final.

Thanks brother

Just finished watching your review Mr.Ecko at it was great buddy.

That neck mod is an improvement but personally for me it is not a big deal at the moment for me to apply that mod but give it a few weeks till I start to become pissed off with the neck. :lol

You're right. The TTM20 's neck is too narrow for the DX13 Head Sculpt.

Here's an easy solution that i just inverted . :wave

Please note: I feel that the head sits too low on the TTM20 body , so i just used blue tack to raise it up a bit .

Good luck , be careful slicing the seam of the rubber torso cover right below the right armpit area. Once that is cut , carefully remove the cover , it is glued in the front and back , pull slowly.

The custom chest piece is a prototype , i plan on making a rubber one soon .

Great mod.
Did you notice that the plastic under layer below the rubber looks decidedly like the Endo chest?

I've had three new sets of batteries in my BD light up head and the light seems to shine rather brightly for a few minutes then goes to about half power and fully dead after about an hour. Is this common, anyone else seeing anything like this or should I contact CS?

I've looked over the pages and only seen the PERS complaint. I know the LED shouldn't drain much power so I'm thinking its defective. Any experience would help a lot.

Mr. EcKo
01-14-2014, 07:18 PM
Well it's not really meant to have the light staying on all the time, its more of just a feature, for possibly taking pictures and videos and whatnot.

The batteries are so small that's why they don't last very long

I am so sick of waiting.

My card was charged 2 freaking months ago because it was on it's way to the retailer. How the frig does it take more then 2 months to get the shipment in from the U.S?

I have tired to be patient and calm but I am just getting pissed at this point. The store has held on to my $345 for two months now with no sign of it coming other then the vague promise it is "on the next shipment" which has been 2 months waiting already.

I can wait just don't charge my bloody card 2 months early so I lose all of my buying protection from Paypal and my cc.

I've just about had it!:gah:

Guys, clarify something for me please.

I've had this figure for about 3 weeks now...I finally opened it and was floored at how awesome he is. I don't own dx10, and after the awesomeness of dx13, I feel compelled to pick up dx10....

Then I skimmed over the past few pages and read that dx10s head is smaller in comparison to dx13....

Drop some knowledge my way fellas...wth happened??

See dx10 is a great figure. Is it perfect "no" ... Is it as accurate as dx13 "no"
But pls remember that with each passing release things will get more and more accurate. There will always be some minor flaws here and there.

So, if you are looking at collecting most of terminator releases at this stage dx10 is a must have. Some of us have multiple of the dx10s to project as mall, cyberdyne, on bike etc and also some of us are using its body and accessories on a dx13 extra sculpt.

So my personal view - if you have funds, buy it. There is nothing perfect and nothing ever will be. Its a great figure but surely not as accurate as dx13... The next release we all hope is police station t1 ... So you would have all 3 good / decent releases... If you buy dx 10 as well... :)

I can see that dx10 is a great figure. I held out on it because I was banking on HT producing their own 1/4 scale...well, I guess that ain't happening.

That being said...I'd love to own a dx10...however, if what I heard is true, that dx10s head is smaller than dx13, I'm gonna have to throw a red flag up and say wtf?? MoS supers being so much bigger than dx12 is unfortunate because this whole time I wanted to pose the both of them together...but they're from separate universes so...I'll have to grit my teeth and wait for the next incarnation of batman to pose next to MoS...

Dx10 and 13 on the other hand...they're from the same GD movie!!and if I'm not mistaken..dx13s head is a tweaked version of dx10. Why the size discrepancy???

Don't get me wrong, I recognize dx10 as a fantastic figure...it's just the size difference.

Just when I thought HT was getting back in shape, they turn around and do these asinine things.

Unfortunately yes the DX10 looks different then the DX13. Not sure what HT did there but obviously they decided to tweak the sculpt again when the worked on the DX13. I didn't realize just how different they were until I displayed them near each other and then did that pic and vid I posted above. The difference is glaring actually.

It is frustrating but HT did the right thing by changing the DX13 sculpt.

Rory will tell you that HT had been producing undersized head sculpts. I didn't notice, being a relatively new collector but since having both figures in hand, I can tell you the DX13's head is the more proportionally accurate one. It's just unfortunate for Terminator fans that the head size was corrected between these two figures.

Regarding tweaks, there were a number of them made for the better. It kind of looks like a customizer got ahold of the DX10 and made adjustments to the lips, eye wrinkles, bridge of the nose, ears, reshaped the hair/back of head and now you got a pretty different, more accurate look.

And finally, it appears that the factory was not up to par with the paint and pers application. Either HT whipped them into shape for the DX13 or moved it to another, more capable facility.

In the end, it is a case of HT dropping the ball with the DX10 then getting back into shape for the DX13. The DX10 is still a decent figure but it is weak in comparison. I'll still enjoy mine until a better version comes along.

That was very well put together. Your point instantly clicked with me. On one hand, I'm glad I didn't pick up dx10. On the other, it sucks that my Dx13 won't have it's companion piece. I skimmed through a few more pages and saw proper comparison pics. Man. Thats rough, The differences are pretty substantial.

Well, guess my funds for a dx10 have shifted in favor for a 2nd dx13.

Honestly, if I were in your position, I don't think I could pull the trigger on the DX10 either. A year ago was the sweet time to have it, when it wasn't completely overshadowed. I hear you about the companion piece though, but remember that HT loves remakes and they probably want to redeem themselves on this as they did on the DX12.

Having 2 DX13's is the way to go. I don't normally like having 2 of the same figure in my collection but I did it with the DX13 and have no regrets.

If they were to revisit dx10 to redeem themselves, they'll need to knock it out of the park. I mean, it NEEDS to be compelling. Like...it needs to comes with dx10 with a revised sculpt, along with a 2nd HS; 1st stage of battle damage (swat team scene). And like frank jaeger alluded to, an effin Harley.
