I just replaced the batteries in my DX13 and after a few minutes the LED light slowly dims. A few people mentioned this before just curious if anyone has resolved this or would know why it's happening. Maybe the batteries I bought were older?

It kind of looks like it was a blemish where the chrome was scuffed or scratched and someone tried to paint over it with silver.

I am wondering when will Hot Toys start to use quality materials. I am collecting for years now but with a few exceptions way too many of their product deteriorate over the years.

There's no leather on the DX13 and the only part you should worry about cracking is the belt.

Well you could use a faux leather conditioner, which would delay the aging.

Yup, at least it makes the pleather feel more flexible. Have only used it on two figures, MMS117 and DX13. One thing though, I accidently rubbed a bit too harsh at one place on the pants and some of the paint wore off so be careful. I believe the pleather is pretty good on the figures and soaking them in a conditioner might not be so neccessary.

Bought a used DX13. Thought the arm was a bit too loose, to my surprise I found the arm peg broken. My interest in buying used figures has now dropped, a lot. Anything I could do that does not require a body replacement?

Not sure it means anything but JC Hong has posted twice about the T1 T-800 from 5 years ago this week. I of course jabbed at him about the 1/4 teaser and that this year is the 35th anniversary.

We might see HT do a Arnold T-800 from Terminator 6, but I doubt we'll see any terminator figures beyond that, such a shame too as there's so much potential. I'd even love figures from Terminator 3. The final battle Arnold and TX would look awesome on display.

Damn, I'd forgotten about that for some reason. As it happens, when he looked like that it was some of the most embarrassing stuff in the franchise, but it would make a fantastic action figure from both NECA and Hot Toys. I would not be able to pass on it.

What was embarrassing about that scene? That might of been the best scene in the whole movie besides the crane chase.

Crashing the helicopter right into the facility and only by sheer luck trapping the TX and managing not to accidentally kill John Connor and Kate Brewster.

'I'm back', practically breaking the fourth wall as he says the line.

Somehow being able to hold the massive door up with one arm without just being crushed like he was in the compressor in T1.

Suddenly being able to break the TX's endoskeleton with one hand - why couldn't he do that earlier?

Silly ''you are Terminated!'' line said by one emotionless machine to another emotionless machine.

:lol

As you know there are 'detailed files' of criticism that can be levelled at that entire film, I was just limiting myself to the portion where the T-850 looks like this

441210


Incidentally

441211

I'm fairly certain there should be something there. How do they think his head attaches to the body, just the pistons and tubes on the side?

P.
01-23-2019, 05:38 PM
that empty space was stupid as ****, i couldn't unsee it since 2005, when he stood up from the crash. i guess they were so proud of that particular scene.
of course there should at least be a spine column there, plus theeth area, plus lots of other jaw mechanisms.


Well, despite all of T3's shortcomings, I enjoyed it and like the TX design.i couldn't believe Winston designed it when i saw that untalented piece of crap.
but then 2 things happened:
- i learned that Winston didn't design the original terminator skeleton, Cameron did;
- transformers, avengers, ADI with their predaturds showed me that untalented and stupid was the new fashionable.

I won't defend T3, I'm pretty sure we're on the same boat in regards to the Terminator films I was just curious as to why you didn't like it. I guess the plausibility of that scene never crossed my mind because it is after all a film about time traveling cyborgs :lol.

True but you at least need some internal consistency and there's too many times where T3 seems to flat-out ignore the Cameron films. They couldn't even refer back to T2 without getting John Connor's age wrong - something which was explicitly shown on screen in T2.....shown on an actual screen in the film :lol

Yeah there's no excuse for messing up pre-established history within the movies. That's just pure laziness and ignorance
on their part.

The biggest meh for me about T3 back in the day was them essentially reusing the T2 idea (sure there are big storyline differences), by having good Arnie protecting John from a superior Terminator model.

To me the DX era was the high point for HT collecting. If there ever was an experience in unboxing (anything) it was a DX figure. Price breaks were great MMS were $170 CAN and DX $230 CAN. I love my DX-13 and every time I see him in my display I say “WOW”!!! Compare him to my most recent purchase Emperor which was $330 CAN there is no doubt the glory days of collecting is over. No surprise I have nothing pre-ordered in 2019

It's basically a dream diorama of the scene because it also has the overlooking gantry where you could have John and Sarah but I'm wary of preordering on ebay and I'm also not sure I want to spend that kind of money - I mean, the size, the materials and labour might justify it, I dunno, but in recent years I've become uncomfortable with single big spends like this.

A. Really takes a hit on the wallet
B. Takes up a LOT of space
C. And I'm not [emoji817] sold on the idea of displaying the character in that particular scene. It limits the display options in my opinion.

I didnt even like the giant weathervane that came with HT DX07. Felt it was very limiting.

Definitely pricey and space hogs but I can understand the attraction to these types of dioramas. They really set off the figures and capture specific scenes in all their glory.

For example, you can have on display the different iterations of Indiana Jones figures on a Detolf shelf but having the Raiders Indy displayed with the Sideshow Golden idol base or the Map Room Indy on the Sideshow "Map Room" diorama are amazing display options.

As far as space, it's mainly vertical and depth space. Width isn't so bad. And as I was a multiple purchaser of DX13 your point C doesn't apply in my case.

It's point A and not being certain that I won't get ripped off would be my primary concerns
