HT just can't seem to get the T2 hair right. 3 attempts, each wrong in their own ways.

It is actually different on the DX10 right

It is. The final sculpt on DX13 ended up being completely different even if the proto was indeed based on DX10.

Nightmare. The hair on the DX13 is nothing like Arnies in the film really. It's far too short and raises in the middle?

The face is much better though, even if the DX13 had the DX10 hair it'd be better

Or for a better wording, more accurate

I dunno, I hate the back of the head/crown area of DX10. But DX10 did have the frontal hairline more accurate. They improve one area only to **** up something else. These sculptors are clearly very talented but this one honestly stumps me. I don't know why its so hard to get the hair/head shape right. Look at some screengrabs, there's plenty of them :dunno
They keep sculpting it too neat and uniform, giving it that rounded afro look. There are clearly ways to sculpt this hairstyle that don't make it look like that - see NECA Pescadero figure and Enterbay's BD sculpt.

Only thing I can think of is that they sculpt the hair that way cause it easily fits the PERS crap. The MMS hair looks pretty cool & more of a flat top then the round mini fro.

:lol So I'm not the only one. I actually have no idea what a haircut costs for a man these days. Its nice to not have to be bothered going to a barber and forking out whatever it is each time. And maybe I'm cutting weird lines in places but, if they see anything, no one comments. They probably just assume its the way I've gelled it.

I received my T-800 a few days ago, truly an outstanding figure. The only thing bothering me was the stitching on the lapels, it made the jacket sit awkward. I removed them and resewed the right (his left) to a new position. I futzed with this pose about an hour yesterday to get the collar right, I hope it shows. :) Here are some quick shots I took, I will take more later. He looks like pure Schwarzenneger in the angle of the first shot IMO, even the hair looks perfect.

You mean the statue it comes with? I think its because its really limited as to how you can pose the T-800 with it. Its a nice statue tho. Even has a padded base covering. It doesn't look cheap at all. I think a more independent pose would have been better tho

I was recommended to post this here as well, maybe it will inspire others to try it out.

I made myself a DX13 using my original T800 :)

I purchased the jacket, head sculpt and hand from Toy Anxiety for $75. I then separated the robotic hand to make it look like the DX13 battle damaged arm.

I then cut a hole in the grey shirt and placed a printed picture of the battle damaged chest piece underneath, ghetto but works! :)

The DX13 head is much bigger than the original T800 head, but it's not that noticeable in person.

Damn! Is that in scale? Or is this gun really that big? This should have been the exclusive. Or it should have been the exclusive with the chrome head. It's a DX. It's supposed to be feature rich.

Thanks and yes the gun is built to scale as close as I could get it. The base that I used to build it is a 1/6 scale tear gas launcher. All I did was customize it to look more screen accurate with modifying the middle canister part the most. So in the end, it is 1/6 scale overall give or take. If you look back at the film or look at reference pics on the net, the middle part is quite huge like that. So I think I came close. You are also right about how this weapon should have been made and included.

I've had this for about 2 weeks and was completely blown away when I opened the box. Had a very small issue that needed to be addressed so that's why I waited in case I needed to ship this back... but today I finally got to really inspect him and it is simply one of the -- if not THE -- most incredible figure I have in hand right now. Just about as perfect a T2 T-800 as one could want today.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at this figure.

I don't think I voted for it on paint because of the excessive blood. I either abstained or I voted DX11 or something.

I think the blood paint looked questionable in the first pro shots but in hand it looks nice to me. The skin looks so much nicer than the DX10 and the wounds are good and nasty.

I still think they blundered by putting so much blood on the endo parts, obscuring any chrome and thus making them stand out less than they should have. So I didn't want to 'reward' that mistake personally. I do like the overall paint though.

Yeah, I was concerned about both the shiny (orange) blood around the wounds and the endo parts looking bronze from the spatter but in hand neither of those became an issue to me. I thought about the DX11 and the 1/4 Batman before voting but I had to go with this one. I'm probably just being a T2 fanboy about it and don't know it. :lol

Got mt Coo model M79 today. overall a nice addition to the semi BD DX13, it weights in real nice, good feel to it. The opening latch has a bit of paint wear right out of the box, looks like natural wear an tear so it does not bother me, the site though is floppy, just swings loosely with no tension at all, annoying but in the scanning pose it stays down so its a non-issue for my purpose.

Also I remember others stating the grenades don't fit the DX13 bandoleer, not the case for me, fits like a glove, may just come down to how your bandoleer was sewn, also being that the grenades are metal they weigh down the bandoleer more giving it a natural hang. Only other thing to report is the strap has to be attached to the M79, it comes seperate in the box, I haven't done this yet.

I took some quick sloppy pics, but I will showcase the piece in my update video for the DX13 in which I will show both the semi and full battle damage so you will get a better look then.

There's little to no differents between the two in detail, only major thing is the materials used, wood and metal vs plastic and the color of the wood. On the shelf it really don't matter which version you have, but in hand the Coo model feels better, mainly down to it weighing more, feels more like a weapon than a toy if that makes any sence.

NOTE: the coo model is the one without the strap, I haven't attached it yet. Also sorry the first photo is so blurry:slap

I'm not a fan of multiples myself but it was easy to make an excuse for Arnold. It's too much awesome to be confined to one display at a time. You at least have to have two.

I've got 4 bought and 2 others parted together, completing my original plan.

SWAT shootout
Search Mode
Punching Liquid Metal T-1000
semi BD face/BD arm combo with steel rod
Crawling/impaled T-800
Full BD for final scene/lowering into molten steel

I'm probably gonna add a figure to one day display with his arm caught in the gears too as I've always really liked that part. If I have to commission someone to build such a dio I will.

Damn, that much really?!??!?
Amazing and a small fortune, isn´t it?
Well, I´m really set for 3, buying prolly 2 and parting together the BD.
Then comes Robo for me and the full armory Batman Set and as an Option ED-209, but not sure.

I kinda start losing enthusiasm on this.
Don´t know why...maybe qualitywise and also why I almost have everything that I want know...

So, just switched to Full BD look and NOW I´m blown away.
Arm swap was a piece of cake, head was no problem either and I just popped the hand out WITH the peg, so I still got my remaining 2.
:)
Love how he looks, made a few pics, not best, I got now DSR, or any other cam, but...I´m happy.
Defoo gonna start buying parts for the full bd in a few weeks and for the time being keep him in search mode.

On 2 sidenotes:
I brought this to work today and shows it almost my complete department and all were blown away, one even pulled is handy, saying: "I gotta make pics, no one´s gonna believe me."
:lol

And second:
I don´t know if I have delusions, or stuff...but...I thought I´ve seen a pattern in his endo eye, similar to the EB BD, but...in scale...so...like REALLY REALLY small.
Anyone with me?!?!?!?!?

I used some moldable plastic, molded it to the structure (which could be done better, it was my first time), and painted the bottom and put a cluster of leds inside. If I do another one or upgrade this one I now have a way of dying the plastic so maybe it'll make for a nicer effect.

Just caught up on the last week here. Some sick pics fellas :clap :clap. And that's a dope dio DarkSpartan :rock. Good work!

At first I was debating on letting this guy go because I didn't think I needed the DX10 & 13. IDK what the hell I was thinking. This is a ridiculous fig and the best Arnie to date. Of course I need both!

It kills the DX10, your going to be blown away:lecture

If I were doing that I might question whether I was really arsed with it in the first place. Seems like a 'I'll probably end up selling this' scenario.

I like to break things up. I'll get a shipment of 3 or 4 things and spread it out over a month. I got a Sentinel Black Getter and did a video review of it last week, so that took up a lot of time.

Plus I work full time and stay busy so I don't have a lot of time to sit down and open things. I'm thinking Saturday I'll unleash the beast.

I do the same. Just too much stuff coming in and not enough time. Not that I don't want to keep the stuff that falls on the backburner, but time is limited and certain things take precedence. Especially when something has issues that really makes tomorrow it to death. I checked out Catwoman ad gave her a solid once over but with all the goggle issues, I didn't even attempt to put them on yet and back in the box she went. Bane and Scar have gotten the same type of neglecting. I gotta make time to dig into these.

I've tried to argue with myself a few times on why I don't need a figure, I usually lose the argument....with myself:cuckoo::lol

As for keeping figures in the box, that's a whole other deal, I only opened my T-1000 a few months ago having had it since release:panic: On top of that I have about 10-15 hot toys figures still in sealed brown shippers and almost 20 truetypes from the last 3-4 years still sealed aswell:thud:

Why??

I guess I should clarify. That was a gut like outburst response lol

Im collecting specific figures toward a specific goal. I want to have a 80's themed man cave (with a little crossover 70'-90's). With figures, arcade games etc. I know that not everybody has a goal or ruleset. What is your plan for keeping sealed figures? is it a space issue?

The Skull
01-24-2014, 04:31 PM
Why??

I was an old school collector from back in the 90's, I used to collect gijoe and 21st century soldiers and would buy one too display and one to keep sealed, I don't do that so much anymore, but I do with some of my favorites like terminator and spiderman, but for the most part just one figure usually at todays prices. As for the truetypes I like to have stock pile for whenever I do a bash or custom, better to buy them at retail then aftermarket prices, I'm also not a fan of the knock-off kind ether.

I have cut back over the past years TBH, I don't buy figures just cause there cool, I do try to keep in themes now a days. Not always the case as I still buy the occasional odd figure, for those I use individual figure cases an display them separate from themed shelfs. As for the T1000 I honestly don't know why I waited so long, its a great figure and displays nicely with the rest of my terminator collection:slap

Yes sir, but like I said not nearly every figure, since I started collecting hot toys I only get an extra on favorites, so mainly terminator and spiderman, wolverine and hulk. There's a couple of others but thats it, I'm not Mr. money bags so don't get the wrong impression, I realize now that may have come across as bragging, not my intentsion, just been collecting for a while.

Oh no I didn't see it as bragging. I was just wondering the reason for so many purchases You don't open. I actually should of understood. As I did the same thing when I was a lot younger with certain figures. Star Wars figures from the "worthless" era. As My buddy and I call it. :-) So I wasn't really thinking. I think the sheer cost of these threw me off.

I hear ya, I think most of the gijoes and 90's starwars figures I have in my attic in boxes are still selling for the same they retailed for 20 years ago:slap I guess everyone had the same idea back then, thinking they would be worth something like the old 60's and 70's versions, not so much:(

I never really collected to make a profit though, I just collected what I liked, still do. I have sold a few pieces I no longer wanted here and there, but I keep 95% of what I buy.
