Got email stating it will be up June 24 at 9am pst.

Anybody planning on getting this one?

It's going to take Indy or Jack Sparrow to draw me in, but these things do look amazing.

I got my email, wasn't it just newsletter subscribers who got? Whats the LE, could sell out quickly because of the popularity of the TX

I got the email as well...

The 1,000 TX's sold out?

Amazing quality but no can do...my wallet is having an affair with sideshow and only siseshow this year.

TX is not sold out.

I am REALLY thinking about getting the T-850. There is a 90% chance I am going to buy it. It's an amazing piece and look just like AHNULD! :)

I got the email but have they finalized a price yet? I'm now in a situation where I could get it, but considering the scale, I'd kick myself if SSC brought out a 1/4 right after.

I agree, I want it but would prefer 1/4 from Sideshow....hurry and announce SOMETHING new!!!

I want this piece SOOOO badly, but I just can't afford it right now. Gruson, if you get the MR AT-AT 2 and this, then I will officially be green with envy.

I'm seriously thinking of selling off a great deal of my collection in a year's time and only collecting true high-end works of art like:
1. Cinemaquette line
2. MR helms, EE sabers, and studio scale vehicles
3. SS 1/4 SW line
4. SS lithos and art
5. SS/W rider and steed pieces + Sauron

Elwood,

That is EXACTLY what I did. I sold off my entire LOTR collection and other figures/statues/busts earlier this year.

I now really only collect:

1. Sideshow 1/4 line from my favorite movies
2. Horse and rider series from LOTR and Sauron of course
3. Cinemaquettes once they release the ones I want...
4. Few MR pieces like AT-AT and the Falcon next year
5. Few Attakus pieces (1/5 scale is as small as I will go)

That's it...I still have some 12 inch Sideshow pieces I need to get rid of.

Yes, I still plan on buying the AT-AT, Arnold T-850, and my Queen Aliens bust will be here soon. :)

Okay, went all over their site and not only couldn't find a price, but couldn't figure out now to order. I guess I don't meet the IQ requirement to be a cinemaquette owner. :x

Dave, the prices are:

T-X: $1000
T-850 (Arnold): $1200
T-800 (Endo): $1500

I may just have to "settle" and get the SS 1/4 Endo later this year, and pray that they announce an Arnold version 1/4 at SDCC.

Gruson
06-21-2005, 01:55 PM
Actually, I think I am going to hold off until Sideshow announces the 1/4 Arnold.

I own the Attakus Terminator and have the 1/4 endoskeleton on order.

$1200 is a LOT of money and the shotgun looks REALLY cheap IMO.

dstephan

Okay, at SDCC last year I would have sworn the 850 (Arnold) was less than $1,000. Guess I'll wait for the SSC one after all (if there's going to be one).

I'm just waiting on the Indiana Jones Cinemaquette.:p .. We should be seeing photo's of it at the end of the year.

I'm hoping they have something new to display at SDCC. They had the 3 Terminator figures there last year, but they've shown nothing new for a year.

I'm just waiting on the Indiana Jones Cinemaquette.

Aren't we all. I imagine that will be their best seller, since no other companies are currently producing high end Indy figures/statues. Master Replicas is bringing out a few things next year, and this would look incredible with those.

At these prices I needn't even consider them. Hopefully SS will produce a Premium Indy... I'd be surprised if they didn't really.

TURINS BANE

Year SS need to get the Indiana Jones license. I would probably get a 24inch Indy statue from SS over the Cinemaquette. it would be a lot cheaper and probably as good.

Gruson
06-23-2005, 11:24 AM
Well let's hope SS makes Indy!

Actually, being 1/4 scale, Indy would be 18 inches, not 24 inches. The Cinemaquette should be 24 inches.

elwood49
06-23-2005, 11:29 AM
Yeah, I'd much rather have a Sideshow 1/4 Indy piece for price reasons, but we may not have that option. Hopefully they will pick up the license. It has to be the one most requested by fans.

TURINS BANE

Correct the Cinemaquette are 1/3 scale so 24 inch is right.
maybe Sideshow could do the same then with the Indy line.?:D

dstephan

I'd rather have Indy in the same scale as all my other movie related museum quality pieces - which is 1/4. Obviously since both companies are doing the Terminator, nothing that CMQ is doing is outside consideration for SSC. But I'd think that LotR is more likely than Indy.

Whats up with that site? Is that not the most difficult to navigate and unhelpfull website you have ever been on? I could only find 4 pics of any of the pieces. Could someone please tell me where a detailed description of the pieces could be found. Also, which pieces have already been released. Are those prices posted above for sure? What makes it worth that price?


Thanks,

Jesse

The sucker is HUGE, 1/3 scale.

Only the T-X has been released so far. There are only pictures of the three Terminator pieces.

I have seen the T-X in person and not only is it realy big, the quality is top notch.

I believe Stan Winston is involved with Cinemaquettes as well.

Picture to show how big they are:

T-X (http://www.statueforum.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=5749)

I heard at Toy Fair, a lot of people actually thought these were real production pieces from the movies because the quality is that good.

Jimmeny Christmass do you have two of the MR AT-AT's or is that not your pic.

Thats pretty tall (what about 2 feet), are they all metal? do they articulate at all? and which one is the one going up for sale today? Man thats still a butload of money. Terminator is deff one of my favorites though.

No, that's not my picture. It's P1's from statueforum.com

I think they do move some.

The T-850, Arnold with jacket, is up for sale today. :) They are 24 inches without the base, etc.


MY ORDER IS IN! :)

When did the email announcement go out? I just looked at my registration email from April and it said I was signed up for their newsletter. I guess they don't want me to buy their stuff. >:

Oxbeard

I got my email Tuesday the 21st Richard.

I'm having the same experience with MR emails. I finally got my notice about the Signature Ed AT-AT the day after it went on sale to the general public and I'm a collector society member. Nothing lost there though, since I wasn't planning on getting one.

RichardW
06-25-2005, 04:55 PM
I still don't know if I can afford the T-850, but it's still frustrating when you're signed up for a newsletter and you don't get it at all.

Does anyone know when these are supposed to ship? I gathered from their website that there's real no set timeframe since they make a limited number a month. Just wondering from those who've ordered what ETA was given on your order status page.

I'd like to order this (maybe), but my CC isn't ready for it yet. Maybe if it'd be a few months, I might have a better chance. I wish they offered payment plans like Code 3 does.

Gruson
06-26-2005, 09:20 AM
They have the first batch of 50 ready to ship. If you order now, they will ship it within a month.

RichardW
06-26-2005, 09:22 AM
So it's probably best to wait a couple months if I'm not ready for it?

RichardW

For anyone that's curious, the T-850 is shipping and there are pictures of it on the Statue Forum. There's been quite a bit of concern on the hair and silicone face.

thanks for the link.

not that i could afford this figure, but i think it looks bad. it's a shame that a $1200 figure can't get in-scale zippers. those huge silver zippers just ruin the figure.

RichardW
08-04-2005, 12:31 PM
Yeah, for $1200 you'd think they would've had some custom-made zippers to fit the scale of this figure.

sheesh! Arnie looks great though. i really hope sideshow use "skin" in the future for some figures, not all just some where its appropriate

Ewww...skin was used?

Second thought. Mmmm...skin. :drool

dstephan

There is some question about how long the silcone skin will last. Ahnold comes with some face powder ostensibly to protect his "skin". So if they can make it look like skin with paint - I'd prefer the polystone.
