Is SR 621 the same as LR 621? If not maybe it's the batteries.

"SR" means it's a silver dioxide battery. "LR" means it's an alkaline battery. The SR is supposed to be better.

Yes P. I think it was you the one who told me something similar about a year ago...
So far ive bought 25 dx13 heads... And this is the last one i have... You don't want to know what happend to the rest...
And the conclusion is, i dont what to have to buy another one, because it would happen again, and this head would become part of the other 25...
And mind you, each of those 25 heads, I've bought them at different yet high prices, and even worse, needed to find ways to get them to be brought to ecuador...
Our god dammed president won't allow for things to bought from abroad and brought to ecuador without paying absurd taxes...
Every time, buying and getting this figures has been a mission impossible... The same, with each little piece bought on evil bay...
Yet... Here we are...

Question about the arm joints on this figure: one of the pegs on the main part of the left arm has broken off. Is it possible to replace the entire joint if I had a spare body to pull it from?

Leon 911
12-12-2015, 05:05 PM
I think that's a very common issue - that hand joint peg was very very delicate and many a times half split with a few push and pull

Its just that the head on the 238 seems "cleaner" regarding those "freckles"...

It's a great hair-rooting job. I would trim the sideburns a bit but other than that the only problem is it's based on the Hot Toys head-shape which is wonky with the back of the head bulging upwards.

Looks good though and better than the stock figure.

I know I'm only a couple of years behind the initial release but I finally got around to picking this one up.

It arrived today and I took a very quick look and was blown away by the entire release. From the DX packaging to the figure itself, Hot Toys went all out on this one. Glad to have this one finally!

I really want to see Taskmaster's 25 arnold heads in a picture!. I would give up trying to find perfection. Espicaly in a figure which mimics real human skin. Christ, skin by its very nature is not perfect. However I understand where you are coming from. Sold 89 bats and joker as they where not "perfect" in my eyes. I regret that descion. However my freind now has 89 Bats so i see him when ever i'm round his lol

i managed to clean mine, including chests and broken arms, without damaging the "chrome" itself or gloss over flesh parts, but some people weren't so lucky. it's better to leave more than less. it's not that difficult actually.

Use acrylics, especially if you're painting over existing paint.

I would recommend oils, as they have a much slower drying time and allow for better/smoother blending. Just keep in mind that a tiny bit of oil paints go a long way.

I wish to set up a second figure in order to display the second head sculpt.

Is the TTM 20 the best route to take or is there a cheaper alternative?

Is the "ZC Toys 1/6 Scale 3.0 Muscular Figure Body with Seamless Arms" a good option?

The MMS238 sculpts were a bit soft in detail, barely any T2 sculpts have accurate shape of the hair and the likenesses on all aren't perfect except for maybe the DX13. I like most of them but they're not BD Robo type perfection by any means.

LOVE this figure. Even compared to the releases coming out today, it's still one of my top 5 figures. I want to set up the other head sculpt set but am not sure what body to use. Aside from getting a loose DX13 body, is there another (cheaper) alternative?

I was thinking of using a DX10 outfit and body with the DX13 jacket to display the light damaged head but that will represent the first 10 seconds of the "I'll be back" scene as his chest was shot out few seconds later.

Ideally for me, I would display the light damage head with a second DX13, but with the DX10 pants, and his knee wasn't scraped off until the steel mill.

My plan is DX10 body with clean DX10 shirt/pants and lightly BD jacket from DX13. Not perfect but I don't want two Arnies both with blown out chests and knees, regardless of if it's movie accurate or not. From photos I've seen the DX10 body looks really good, though I'll have to see if the neck/head colouration difference bugs me. I suspect it'll be OK, though.

Fantastic photos, Frank.

Before I invest in the figure body, can anyone advise on an affordable alternative to the DX13 body?

Would a "Thor" body work?

How about a Zytoys muscular body like this one: 1 6 ZY Toys Muscular Male Action Figure Body 12 inches Tall US Seller B005 | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/301709764972?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT)

Not sure about other HT bodies let alone third party ones but the TTM20 is what the Arnold bodies are based off. I used one for my second Tech Noir Arnie.

Well, i couldnt get all the heads together for the photo, since i gave some of them to a few friends of mine...
But here is a pic with most of them!

In the end, i was able to get a nice paint job for the nose of my favorite head, by the people that paint the sculptures for the church...
They used oil... Said i should wait a few weeks for it to be "touch-dry"... I dont plan on doing anything to the paint, i just hope it end up being resistant and durable... Anyway here he is:

He's the only HT T2 figure I own. I passed on the others as I didn't feel the likeness was quite there. Just something off about the DX10, and the prior release. I do think HT should revisit the license; they could all use some upgrading. Except this guy.

Ideally, I would go with the "I'll be back" scene which needs a DX13 body with the DX10 pants, since I don't see much point in two DX13 looks in scenes just seconds apart.

jimmylace
05-23-2016, 02:16 PM
Nah, including this guy :lol But I know that wouldn't be a popular opinion.

I'd agree a-dev on second thought! As an Alien/Predator/Terminator only collector pretty much, i'm getting to the end of my rope with Hot Toys and their half-hearted efforts towards those licenses. Reckon I'll be selling my collection off in favour of statues; better VFM and shelf-presence in my book. And weirdly less waiting.

Around seven predator 2.0s in 4 years, since the 2012 announcement. Too slow to follow.

With the proceeds, I could have alot of fun with NECA. Could buy every damn character in a weekend! But I think less is more probably.

There'll likely be a DX13 going onto Ebay in the UK towards the end of this week!

a-dev
05-23-2016, 04:36 PM
Wow. I didn't expect that turnaround. :lol You seemed pretty sure he was fine.

When the blogger pics started appearing, particularly some deliberately blurry Plastic Enemies teasers, I thought Hot Toys had finally nailed it. And when I got it in hand I loved it....but that didn't last. Just couldn't help noticing the wide face and the perennial failure of Hot Toys to sculpt his hair properly. And the PERS eyes were an improvement on DX10's but still not great really, they still detract from the realism, particularly when he's looking straight ahead for some reason. Add to that the excessive blood paint turning what should have been chrome endo-parts bronze. I ended up replacing the jacket because the tailoring was once again a miss;I wish I could do something to make the chest and knee battle-damage more accurate, I don't really like the artistic license they took. So yeah, a lot of things I'd change on that figure. That said, as a set it remains pretty well packed out so credit where it's due. I love the T-1000 statue, that was pretty much a dream come true for me to be able to recreate that scene.

jimmylace
05-24-2016, 07:13 AM
Haha, the turnaround is more my feelings toward the hobby overall, rather than a particular criticism of this figure.

For what it is, it's the best 1/6 Arnold figure out there. Alot of attention to detail, don't get me wrong. (Agreed on the PERS criticisms and likeness.)

Robocop and Tracker Predator. Outstanding figures.

I'd have more fun with NECA I think, or taking a 'one-and-done' approach to the movies with high-end statues though. I'm not a rich guy- have spent 2k+ on these things; and not feeling as good about that as I used to. If 3-5 Hot Toys equates to a 1:1 Alien bust by CoolProps; I know which one I'd rather have. Plus, not looking to collect expensive items forever; seems logical to get out now and re-direct the collection with a view to it coming to an end.

On that note; I managed to pick up Sigourney Weaver's autograph for 35. Plan to display it with a life-size Alien bust at some point. A bargain!

a-dev
05-24-2016, 10:13 AM
I feel similarly. I'm not rich, never was, so I never really should have jumped into high-end at all let alone bought the amount that I did.

I've sold a lot though and in doing so regained some semblance of control. The next test would be if Hot Toys did make another T1 or T2 figure, would I go nuts buying multiples as I have in the past? I'm not so sure anymore.

My idea was to use the original body and heavy BD sculpt to display him from the end of the film, with his damaged arm and other arm holding the metal rod.

Then find a second body to display him with the less BD sculpt and holding out the grenade launcher and pistol (which I currently have him displayed).

The fact that they showed some real enthusiasm for the characters. When I opened my Commando figure I saw all the accesories and thought, "blimey this is close to a DX minus the stand". But others just feel a little anaemic in the extras department. Imagine a DX Iron Man, Captain America and Thor? Or some classic icons like Beetlejuice, Dutch Schaefer (predator), Vader etc
Yes I know most of those will never be done but just imagine. How awesome would that be?
I heard through the grapevine the DX series was cancelled but is that official. I never actually heard/read it from HT. If they have cancelled the line its a shame. They really are the top of the charts in terms of quality

I think it is cancelled. I mean they have figures that are basically DX as you mentioned but just without that label and perhaps the same "full package" of a DX. I really do enjoy the DX figures I have : DX13, 89 joker and 89 batman. I think we've seen our last DX unfortunately.

That is a shame. I remember the Batman Returns one being very similar except for the box. But that's what made it special, the presentation. Made you feel like a very wealthy man opening up a premium quality item made just for you.

Haha I don't know how to add gifs but that one would be appropriate. Yeah I'm very happy with the collection I have now. There really isn't much else I'd want aside from the 1/4 scale Vader and Stormtrooper. I think I got into the game at a good time so i could grab pretty much all the movie/comic characters I love (esp this dx13 figure) at a decent price. I really did appreciate that DX treatment and in the future I doubt we see much of that again.

Me too, though when I had detolfs I never risked it as they never seemed stable enough. Only time I use stands now are when needed poses or if a figure is not in an enclosed cabinet, so you are a braver man than me in that respect!

Having started collecting Hot Toys figures in June I picked this one up off ebay last week and can't stop looking at it! T2 remains my favourite action movie of all time so I just had to have it. I can't imagine ever loving a figure more than this one but the LED eye is bothering me somewhat.

Every time I switch it on the eye it starts nice and bright but fades within minutes so its barely visible in a my detolf. Can anyone who's had the figure a while confirm if this this supposed to happen? I've even changed the batteries and still the same.

Not sure about that...honestly I don't keep the batteries in my figures.

But I totally agree that this is an amazing figure. I think it is one of HT best to date and I'm glad you were able to pick it up.

I only planned to buy a couple of figures but have ended up getting seven in a little under three months with five more waiting on pre-order :lol

Is it risky keeping the batteries in him? I just love how it looks with the eye lit up red. When it's off or faded kinda looks like he's dead waiting for that 'alternate power' to kick in.

The detail of both head sculpts blows me away so I put the less damaged head from this on my DX10. Not movie accurate but the clean sculpt it came with just looks bad when I stand it next to the DX13.

Thanks P.! I used those reference pics for the highest accuracy, I'm surprised even the belt is dirtied up.

I guess you can do it very slowly, taking one outfit at a time and write a log like I did on what goes where, that way there's consistency between each figure.

Jameson Rook
08-29-2016, 03:11 AM

Sure, what I did was to drybrush the outfit(s) with acrylic, no need any water and use an old paintbrush. The secret to great weathering is to use various colors, since only one would look pretty fake. Here are the colors I used:

1) Grey mixed with some white brushed on with a wide brush to remove the "shine" from the outfit.
2) Yellow Ochre for the seams, especially on the collar and shoulders. Also use this one the sleeves, as they are quite yellowish.
3) White around the edges of the pockets or anywhere you see fit.
4) Burnt umber to finish off the look, giving it heavy dirt and a rustic appearance, especially on the DX13 less so on the DX10.

Overall, I wouldn't worry about mistakes, since it's easy to wipe off and try to not overdo it, as you could always add more. Just go slowly and it's really hard to mess up. The only word of caution I can give is to watch out for the studs, as they come off pretty easily.

It's sad that T3 and the other sequels have turned the terminator into a parody of himself.

Titanic and Avatar may have made him more money but T2 is Cameron's real masterpiece. I'm biased but it really had everything. Epic action sequences, memorable lines, a great story and real heart.
