Thank you gentlemen! Glad to have gotten through all that. Been working on it all week and it was starting to feel like a chore. Some of the shots are reused from my previous photo-series including one or 2 with the MMS117.

And yeah that of course is a NECA T-1000 with the fully split head since we don't have that from HT....or a John Connor...hint hint Hot Toys if you happen to see this.

I got tonnes of other good shots that I'll post at a later time. Now though I'm off to bed. I don't want to tell you what time it is in Ireland right now. :cuckoo:

I don't know why they haven't really. He's in the entire movie, he's integral to the story, and yet he's missed out. I guess it's because they'd have to develop an entirely new child body just for that one character, and they don't see as financially worth it. But given his size, i can imagine him and his baby dirt bike being a nice little set. And again, given his size, i don't see how it'd be much more then what their charging for other figures atm.

Wow a-dev :thud: I am totally impressed, you did an amazing job recreating that scene, you totally showed off how awesome the dx sculpt is to and how it can be used to re-create almost any molment from the first part of the movie:fireworks Bravo sir.......Bravo:hi5:

12-22-2012, 09:49 AM
Wow, thank you all very very much. Your reactions have made all the tedium, the long picture selection process and the mess I turned my collection room into to take these pics all completely worthwhile.

Anyway the DX10 here is the stock figure except with black T-shirt and a paperclip in the collar to make it tighter around his neck. Everything else is down to posing and lighting. For some shots I cheated with the pose just so as to achieve as close to the movie shot as I could get - where if you stepped back and looked at the figure the pose would look stupid and unnatural - but importantly it would look completely normal and like the movie in the photo.

Obviously I had to make some compromises because the diorama is only so big and we don't have all the characters from the scene.

In the close-up shots with the sunglasses almost knocked off his face - those are actually the MMS117 sunnies. Funnily enough they were a more accurate looking size when viewed that close. I dunno, camera distortion or something made the DX ones look too big.

If I can think of anything else to say I will post later but meantime thanks again very much all!

Yep, as you can see I've truly been getting great use out of it. So glad you commissioned it originally and were then willing to sell it!

Nailed the poses (for every character, especially the T-800 running towards the elevator taking hits in the back) and the lighting.

Love the inclusion of the NECA blow away split T-1000 head and I never noticed the glass damage from the window on the floor.

Don't like the DX 10's eyes, looks like a wide eyed gorilla, the neck seam when looking up didn't look as nice as the MMS 117 looking up towards the elevator shaft in the low lit lighting. That had a better natural neck and seam too.

Need John Connor.

Wish I had this diorama and the lights. Great work, I can tell the time and effort that went into it, it definitely paid off.

Nailed the poses (for every character, especially the T-800 running towards the elevator taking hits in the back) and the lighting.

I wasn't even going to include a pic of that. Because I don't have the full width of the corridor I had to change the angle a bit. But it worked in the end.


Love the inclusion of the blow away split T-1000 head and I never noticed the glass damage from the window on the floor.

Another bit I wasn't going to include because we don't have that head from Hot Toys, but since I was putting in everything else I thought I'd try the NECA and I think I did an OK job of making it look like its the same size.

Thats a pity, I was hoping I could sell people on the eyes. I found the PERS extremely useful on this. I would have liked had they made one of his eyes a bit more squinty like how Arnie looks oftentimes in the movie. And yeah you're right about the neck seams - awful. Again - I wish HT would have gone with an all-in-one head and neck. There certainly are some angles that are better with the MMS117 headsculpt - from behind certainly and in fact one of my shots is of the back of MMS117's head looking up at the ceiling.


WOW!

One of the best 1/6 pic sets ever! Seriously.

Now I gotta do something like that with TDK interrogation scene :panic: :panic: :panic:

Yeah, my mind completely disregards the inaccuracy of the length of the hall way when you nail the poses.

The way his arms are posed up with the shot gun sell it and it looks just like it's from the film.

Same with alot of the shots you have of the T-1000 running with his legs splayed. That's exactly how Robert Patrick ran in a full sprint.

It doesn't look out of place at all. You matched it up perfectly and I can't even tell that it's a smaller figure. The only thing that throws it off is the little seam line on the bottom of the neck. Other than that? Fantastic.

Glad you kept it. It's a nice little trick, just like what Stan Winston and Co. would do for the film.

Yeah, it's just way too wide eyed for my tastes. There's that shot that you made, I'll have to find it, where you used the MMS 117 looking on with Sarah as the T-1000 is coming through the bars right after he lifts her up. You sold the look and the MMS 117 looked more convincing than the DX 10 did in the same exact set up. The MMS 117 has rough ass features, but in the lighting in your diorama scene recreation, it looks great in some of the dramatic set ups, especially in the elevator section trying to shoot at the T-1000. It's that brow shadow lighting that sells it that the DX 10 really can't achieve. There's always that bit of light reflecting off the in set eyes.

Then yeah, of course the neck.

But one thing is, you can't sell that glare he gives the pescadero employee after she hits him with her cast without PERS. That's probably the best utilization of the gimmick. Too bad he looks so wide eyed though and not grim.

Hmmm. Well I have to disagree there, not about him being too wide-eyed but about the MMS117 looking better for that particular part. I did new shots with the MMS117 in exactly the same posing and lighting which I will post in the comparison thread and, well for me personally, DX10 beats it easily.

Upon studying that shot in the film all DX10 needs is a slightly more furrowed 'angry' looking brow to really nail it. And if I could have gotten the lighting better would help too. I wasn't able to match the lighting to the film in every shot, in some cases I just had to pick what I thought worked best for the sculpt.

Oh yeah, speaking of which, the accompanying music was a clever idea as well. I love how you included that as we scrolled down and viewed the pics.

I put the music with the pics and synced them up in my head.

Sort of want to see how they'd play out in a video presentation on youtube with the slides matching the music. It'd be sweet, panning from this to that, the sequence, T-1000 specific glare with the music. It could work and be super easy to do. Almost like a glorified story board with a soundtrack, but better, just short of stop motion.


Similar to this, just more complicated and involved.

:lol They are. She may be getting a reduction somewhere down the road. She can hardly stay on her feet with the weight of them. I'm concerned about her back.

Well I'd love to do other scenes but I have no other dioramas. If I ever can I'll hopefully commission someone like Maxx Replicas who made most of this one. I'd love a steel mill set up, a Galleria corridor, a garage interior, the Cyberdyne window, the Cyberdyne lobby etc.
However I'm expecting to be having a child in the next few years so who knows if I'll be able to continue the hobby in any capacity at that point.

Thanks. No, I haven't modded the head at all. I don't want to even attempt it till I have some to spare. I've got 2 DX10s, but for the OCD part of me that just isn't enough to consider one head potentially expendable and to risk a botched mod.

I have no problem with you doing it. I didn't particularly care because I'm sure the whole thing is full of continuity errors and lighting changes anyway. Actually it was funny spotting continuity errors in the film while I studied the scene. The most major one of course is where Arnie picks up the black hospital worker to throw him and then suddenly in the next shot I think its the white guy with big hair and the tache. But there were other errors too. Look again at my pics where Arnie's sunglasses are knocked half off his face and then the shot where hes about to take them off. I copied a continuity error from the film there.

Thanks a lot. I had seen this sort of thing done before by others, recreating scenes in a sequence of pics. I know Maulfan for one did this and there was someone else too. So with this diorama, that I was lucky enough to get this year I couldn't not do it myself. I did it first with the MMS117 (posted it in that thread as opposed to starting a new thread) and wanted to try it with the DX10 knowing that its PERS would come in very handy.

@Rzeznikk - it took all last week up to the day I posted it, and would have taken longer except I reused some shots from a previous photoshoot - mostly the shots of the T-1000. Some of those older shots look a tad blurry for my liking but my main objective here was to show the DX10.

My only other comment would be after putting all that effort put in, you could have framed them so as to add the black letterboxing just like you see when watching the Blu-Ray on an HDTV. They would be even more convincing than they are already as screen shots from the film.

Hopefully you take what I said above as a constructive note. Not a negative one. Because I can see you put time and effort into those.

Excellent :) Thanks to everyone. I've been over the moon with all the comments this has gotten. Certainly it seems to have been worthwhile to give it its own thread - I'm kinda wary of starting new threads, I don't like to do it unless I think its a topic with some longevity to it. I though this was worth it because it showcased great figures from a great movie franchise in a great diorama which as I have a noted on the first page is by Maxx Replicas, and I added parts which I'm very proud of.

@Tyler (Jason) yeah thats a good idea about adding letterbox bars. In fact I kinda wished I could have taken the shots in a widescreen format to more exactly match the film but I don't even know if the camera I was using was capable of such a thing. I'm a total camera novice to be honest as I also am with picture editing and photoshopping. The extent of my camera knowledge is point, hold still, and shoot and use macro setting for closeups. I have no problem if anyone wants to edit any of my pics in this thread.

So one wonders what else they might make in this series. I'd sure love me some T2 Steel mill pieces among other things.

It's not out of the realm of possibility with the DX13 coming out but Hot Toys is all about Marvel right now :mad:

Thats a cool idea, I hope they run with diorama series as I could get into that, steel mill for terminator with chains for lowering scene, batcave for batman, trophy wall for predator 2 ship scene, the list goes on and on:panic:

Just checked your photosets again, some really cool shots that look straight from the film.
I hope max replicas or whoever makes more diaoramas, really brings the figures to life.
You should check out "reverends" alien dios they are very cool:)
Might make one myself at some point for my hicks and ripley if I get time.

Yeah theres loads of potential in the diorama line but hopefully the Iron Man boys will take a stand on the price of the Hall of Armours that would benefit the rest of us in the long run. People are disgusted at the price HT has started the line off on and hopefully it has the effect of getting HT to be a little more realistic about what they should charge. Probably won't though.

Oh yeah I've seen his Alien Diorama. A stunning piece. Did he end up agreeing to do a 1:6 version of it? If memory serves he made it initially for the NECA 1:4 scale Alien.

Nice to be bumped, thanks guys. I still love this if I do say so myself, mind you, some of the shots seem superfluous to the sequence and I'm not really sure why I left those in.

Hot Toys have not made a John Connor and probably never will. I do have a custom now by Commando but so far I'm not in the best position to retake these photos with him in it.
Other things that have changed since this photo set are that I've given Sarah Connor a breast reduction surgery since these pics :lol and I've replaced the T-800's jacket with the MMS version's.

Well the body I'm using for Pescadero Sarah had some rather substantial funbags. I think it was the Abigail Whistler body. Linda Hamilton was endowed with Jessica Biel's assets. I performed a horror-op, now looks grotesque naked but acceptable with the vest on.

Thanks a lot sirs. This is undoubtedly my personal best work - helped of course by having a diorama with some movie-specific lighting built into it. Though I also used other sources, a tiny little pocket torch and the lights from my TDK Tumbler.

If any of you more skilled photographers see problems with the pics that you think you could fix with a bit of editing please feel free, I'd love to see that. Or indeed if there's a nicer way to present them with T2 borders or something.

Thanks. If someone wants to make me more diorama's I certainly would do more of them. I'd love me a Cyberdyne Lobby and some steel mill dio's to do scene recreations there but these things are beyond me unfortunately. Best I would be able to manage would be scenes against a black background, provided I could get the lighting right and got a new camera with a tripod because these days all I can seem to take are crappy blurred pics! :gah:

Thanks for that. I always said I'd reshoot this because in the months afterward I acquired a John Connor custom and I changed the T-800 into the IMO superior MMS117 fake-leather jacket. I also gave Sarah Connor a breast-reduction (did an horrific botch job to be honest but you can hardly tell through the vest :lol ) Anyway I didn't reshoot, just couldn't summon the willpower, also my camera, which wasn't even the best at the time, has only degraded in the time since due to poor care by myself.

If you're going back through old pages I wonder if you found this from another member, an arguably more impressive diorama: http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/aliens-and-robots-action-figures/157167-dx10-t800-1-6-scale-mojave-desert-armory-diorama.html

Most awesome photo shoot ever. I have to say, after owning this figure for a few years and the newness has worn off, it is the most accurate non-damaged Arnold sculpt from HT. There are the issues we've discussed many times, but no doubt that is Arnold's face there.

Thanks. I do have a Furlong but it has major difficulty standing on its own and would probably be a nightmare to photograph in conjunction with the other figures aswell.

Too kind sir. Did you ever see that photoshoot with the Enterbay BD T-800 and T-1000? Someone did the same kind of thing I did here, recreating the steel mill scenes with precision mimicry of exact poses from the film. Mine is a cool amateur job whereas this was a professionally done shoot. I'll upload and post the pics if you haven't seen them.

Yeah the DX10 has its problems but it also does a few things right that have been done wrong on Arnie sculpts ever since.

Wow that was a fantastic re-telling of the film with the figures! I truly wish I collected when these were released to be able to grab them. They seem like such complete packages, I know HT doesn't do re-issues; but how they went all out for their Terminator stuff makes me think there's little they can possibly improve upon to justify a 2.0 of any of them.

Thanks.

Most of them were pretty well packed out releases with exception of MMS238 Police Shootout T-800 which could have done with a full set of clean and damaged clothes and a bandaged forearm and hand. The other figures covered the parts of the movies they were representing very well whereas there was a lot of things you couldn't accurately portray with MMS238. It is commonly believed to be their half-assed Terminator figure.

If Hot Toys were inclined to facilitate people who weren't on the scene when all these figures initially came out I'd be game if there was some new sculpts in the equation. I think they could all do with updating.


Holy moley.

Well done

Thanks, yep that was the idea. Most of them were based on the actual movie shots. Looking back at it some of them seem to be surplus to requirements and I think I included them because DX10 was newish at the time and I thought they were decent pics of the sculpt that I didn't want to not use - but as far as telling the story they were unnecessary frames. There's also one during the elevator segment that now looks quite out of place to me and isn't even a good shot of the sculpt so I don't know why it's there.

Talking about this one
http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt28/a-dev/DX10ified%20Pescadero%20scene%20recreation/561Medium.jpg

^Looks like I took that one outside of the elevator and I can't remember why I would have done that. Maybe to simulate a frame where the elevator lights had blinked off but it's too noticeable that it's no longer in the elevator. And I should have minimized the amount of shots showing that ugly neck joint.

I didn't end up buying that, no. Kinda lost interest in any of these third party figures unless they were able to match Hot Toys quality which they typically aren't. Obviously an official John Connor from Hot Toys I would buy. They wouldn't necessarily nail the likeness either but the overall quality would be superior. I heard the CGL is a bit of ragdoll.

Mine is slightly but not Sideshow Jawas-like floppy.

The figure isn't Hot Toys quality but it really fits in with Uncle Bob. I would definitely pick up a Hot Toys John Connor but I'm honestly fine with the CGL version standing in.
