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.

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?

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.

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?

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

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?

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

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

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

Thanks, it's not hard even for a beginner! Simply drybrush the outfit with acrylics, nothing more. Take a dry, hard paintbrush and dab some acrylic paint, brush off the excess paint on a piece of paper so that only a very small, dry amount is left on the brush an then simply brush on the outfit. Wipe immediately if you make a mistake.

I weather all my Terminator figures as accurately to the film as I could and you might notice that the right, more damaged figure is more distressed than the left.

If ever there was a figure I'd call a personal grail, it's this. I wasn't in the game at the time and really have no interest paying 3x the cost of a figure for him. As much as I adore the fig all around.

It REALLY surprises me that no one has bootlegged this yet though. Or any of the T2 stuff. I know there's the 1/12 stuff that's a blatant rip, but I don't care about that. Some of HT's best have seen unofficial re-releases that way, so I find it strange these haven't. I wonder if the molds were destroyed or lost at some point.

The irony of what you're saying is that if this was the 90s, HT would exclusively be making figures from the biggest action blockbusters of the 80s and 90s, just as they are doing with Marvel now. I feel like it's a cop out argument to "blame" them for not revisiting these figures again. Do I want them to? You bet. Do I understand why they won't? Absolutely.

They're doing Marvel while it's big.

They had a shot with Star Wars and well, the fan base imploded.

They did Pirates when that was big.

They did the Dark Knight when it was big.

Terminator will never be big again. Sadly.

But the reality is that these films just aren't relevant anymore. No matter HOW much you or I enjoy them or how good they are. I had multiple students in my class (college level) think I was referring to my friend "Arnold" when I was teaching muscle anatomy and using Arnie as an example.

So anyways. Someone bootleg these so my wannabe 80s childhood I experienced in the 90s can continue to be satiated. Or a kind soul parts with a fair priced DX13. :monkey3 It's weird knowing that T2 is my favorite film and I don't have a 1/6 in my collection.

Sorry to tell you this, but these characters and actors are the Rambos, T-800s, Snake Plisskins, and John Matrixes of the modern day. Folks look up to, are inspired by, and escape through these characters just as you did with all the classic films. And if being inspired to fight for others by Captain America, learning to find your path in life by watching Thor grow, or seeing the importance of selflessness through Tony Stark makes you a sissy, then I'll happily take the title, frame it, and parade it about.

Your disdain to the enjoyment of others and their modern icons doesn't bode well towards people discovering our beloved classic films all over again. In fact, if anything, it's the type of behavior that put them off to it, because all it says is "everything was better when I was your age, I'm better, you're wrong." The western movie generation said the same with 70s - 90s films. They belittled them just as you are doing now. The response you had towards them is going to be same for the modern generation towards you.

Note, it's a lot more expensive than it appears, read further down.

I know that seller he is a theft he has the prices higher that you could find in other places..
I am pretty sure is made by a chinese company so price it will be a lot cheaper on other shops

I think its just the sheer volume of Marvel figs and Star Wars + the lack of much diversity that gets on some collectors nerves.

http://www.hottoysph.com/checklist/category/movie-masterpiece-mms/

^^ This website lists all the HT releases and as you can see the last few years has been dominated by Marvel & SW. For me personally it has been really good news for my wallet, as I dont like Star Wars whatsoever and I'm not that interested in the whole Marvel Universe.

Its not so bad, as we have other companies like Big Chief, DID, Blitzway. Filling the void left by HT. HT will always go for mass market appeal over the more niche market.


For me personally I have most of the figs I want already, So I'm not to bothered what HT make anymore.

Well, charging more than other places doesn't make him a scammer. And it's the only ebay listing I can find for this diorama.

That said, I'm probably not gonna go for it.

Has anyone seen this issue before? Is there a way to fix it. The figure was kept behind glass, out of direct light, and in a temp controlled room. This discoloration is found in various spots throughout.

I think you're the first to have that. Has the texture changed in any way? Also, how's your belt?

RiggsMcClane
08-07-2019, 07:23 PM
No texture change. Just color. Almost like its mildew but that doesnt really make sense. I tried a lightly moist paper towel and it wouldnt come off. The belt looks fine but as two tiny spots on it with the same color.

This prompted me to look at mine. I have two, one in each configuration.

I'm paranoid at the best of times about rot and mildew, and at first I thought I could see something similar on the right collar of the more complete jacket. When I pulled the figure out of the detolf I felt pretty sure it was just the weathering paint HT applied. Especially when I compared it to the definite weathering that they put on the jacket cuffs and where the trousers meet the boots.

The weathering is slightly different between the two figures, and the more complete one is a little lighter on that pocket panel like yours. There's also paint running alongside the zip as yours has, but mine isn't as thickly applied. It's more like a misted spray.


When I had mildew problems in the past, before I started controlling humidity, I wiped the clothing with a non-bleach anti-bacterial cleanser which cured the problem. I just tested the collar and pocket panel that looked suspect to satisfy my curiosity, and nothing came off. So I conclude that it's just HT's weathering.

"I am inevitable" - said the infamous Hot Toys pleather deterioration.

I had a random look at my T2 MMS 117 which was posed like that since forever and never even touched. A tear appeared on the pants under the zipper. I ordered new pair of pants, hopefully intact.

I also bought a DX13 a couple of days ago. It arrived pretty much mint. Now I can see a white mark appeared on his pants IN THE SAME EFFING PLACE. I don't want it to spread and become a tear - any ideas what should I do to stop/fix it?

Alternatively: does anybody have a spare pair of DX13 pants for sale?

Help!

Hmm, interesting. I'll take a few more pics to show it's extent. A freind thought it might be the dye fading and mentioned one of his figures has done the same. So I'm not sure which it is at this point.

Yours may be different and fading dye sounds a reasonable explanation, but I'm fairly certain it's just weathering on mine. I had a look at the two unused jackets, which are still in the plastic boxes HT packed them in. They both have the same weathering paint pattern - right collar, pocket panel, alongside the zip, cuffs and the bottom edge of the back.

All of them have been kept out of the sun. At first it was a room with curtains drawn, and now in a room without windows.

The only excess ultra violet they might've experienced would've been from old style light bulbs, before switching to LEDs a few years back.

I wonder what the chances are of them making Terminator figures from Dark Fate (and future ones, if it is successful). In previous years, this would have been a given, but nowadays, I'm not so sure... :(

Someone reported during comic-con that Hot Toys does indeed have the license for Dark fate. I think the odds of them making something from it are pretty good.

HT already stated officially that they have the licence for Dark Fate and since it's Terminator, they'll most likely come up with at least one figure.

Thanks bro. I originally had them like this. But then I thought it looks like poor John is left neglected a bit whilst his mum hooks up with some cyborg. When I changed to the new pose all 3 felt more in unison.

Would love to see 2.0's of:
T-1000
T2 Sarah Connor
T1 Endoskeleton
Kyle Reese
DX10

Other possibilities like:
The franco Columbo future terminator infiltrator
1984 kyle reese
1984 Sarah Connor
T2 future John Connor
T2 future human resistance fighter
T2 teenage John Connor
T-1000 frozen
T-800 with massive flesh torn (basically an endoskeleton with some flesh on it in a few places)
T-800 from dark fate (young version when it killed john connor)

This is just off the top of my head, there is plenty of gold left in the terminator license, I cannot understand why HT is not cashing in on it. Especially right now, while the iron is hot and the fandom is turned up!!!

I missed the boat for Hot Toys Terminator figures, well other than the T-800 Endoskeleton from Genesis but I did buy the normal T2 T-800 leather outfit and boots the other day.

I was thinking of getting a DX10 for a $100 but I was wondering if there is a cheaper alternative that still has the height and mass. Also, what would be the best third party head to go with it replicate that T2 Arnold?

Very good list. I've got almost all of the releases, some doubled up, but would definitely like the following:

1. T2 Endoskeleton
2. Frozen T1000
3. T1 Kyle Reese
4. T1 Sarah Connor

A DX10 for $100 bucks is a steal. Definitely go for it.
I'm not a big fan of that head sculpt but I'm unsure what 3rd party sculpt is available. I will say that with the glasses on, he looks good. Unfortunately, if you plan on posing with the gatling gun or the grenade launcher, he had lost his glasses by those scenes.

I wish they'd at least do the Endoskeleton in 1/6 form. It was shown at the beginning of that piece of garbage Dark Fate in her vision sequence. Although I have and like the Genesis version, I'd much prefer the T1-T2 design. For the life of me I don't understand why they added the black near the shoulders. The chest piece design I don't care for much either but the black around the shoulders is awful.

I'd buy a battle damaged Arnie from Dark fate. They did the Genisys endoskeleton (which required an all new sculpt) so who knows at this point.

I just assumed they were the original design because I didn't think they'd be that lazy enough to use the previous films CGI Endoskeltons.
