Looks fantastic and I'm defininitely getting it, BUT I wonder how, when they've done the LS bust, they missed the missing chunk of hair and flesh in the back of his head exposing the Endo skull, and I would hope/assume this will also have LED.

amazing piece! i'm rather unfamiliar w/ SS's busts. will the clothing/grenade belt/jacket be sculpted poly or cloth/leather? because it looks like mixed media to me.

They already have. Some people have already received them, and the results are less than spectacular. There's a discussion going on about them at Statue Forum with pics. Lots of rainbow effect in the chrome version. Combat version seems to be OK though.

Pre-ordered this as soon as it was up on SS website! IMHO it's SS's best looking 1:1 bust yet! (Doesn't help that T2 is my all time favourite film :lol )

Reinhardt
08-02-2007, 05:15 AM
agreed!! this thing is so awesome, we have 2 threads about it. :lol

hopefully it'll ship in the earlier, and not later part of Q4. ofcourse, i have absolutely NO place to put it!!

That's why I have sold my HT Robocop and trying to sell my HT ED-209.... with those two gone that will give me the room for this :lol

Just received word from SSC that I'll be charged for the T-800 ENDO head soon. I'm really looking forward to receiving the bust! I have the Arnold head on order also, but I like the ENDO head better. The Arnold version how ever is the best I have ever seen. Can't wait to seen "in hand" pictures! When is it suppose to ship? First quarter 2008? There's a long wait ahead of us...

Reinhardt
08-02-2007, 06:39 AM
arnold head is supposed to ship 4th quarter 2007.

congrats on the endo!! which one are you getting, the battle damaged, or clean? i heard the clean has some "rainbow" paint on it which looks a bit weird.

here are some pics i posted in the "other" terminator thread regarding the arnold head. i took these while at SDCC:

BEST BUST EVER.

Hesitant at first, I finally went with the chrome version. Just to iconic - opening sequence of T2! Yes, I read all about the rainbow effect. It seams that this is rather screen accurate, since there's at least one screen used Endo that has it too. It doesn't bother me much. I have to wait and see how it looks in person. I think it's nice that they tried to give the metal the effect it was exposed to heat, but I can only hope they did it subtle enough to be realistic. I sure dislike the package design though. Looks plane, pretty much like the boxes for the 12" figures. Never liked that design.

Reinhardt
08-02-2007, 07:02 AM
i haven't seen what the package looks like, but i take everything out of the boxes anyway! definitely post pics once you get yours... or wait, maybe you should NOT post pics... cause if you do, then I'll like it and have to get one too. :D

but yeah, i agree, chrome is the way to go... definitely iconic!

du du de du DU!

Does anyone think will get a figure version of this or should I not expect Sideshow to do one and just pickup the non-battle damaged T-800 we got? Because thats awesome. I prefer battle damaged, thats why I've held off but if we wont get one I'll get the standard.

I just received my T-800 battle damaged bust I had on backorder and I have to say I was very disappointed with the process. I am not sure if Sideshow is selling off the rejected pieces or what but I when I opened mine the styrofoam was completely ruined. Once I got inside the bust was not wrapped in gladwrap and was resting on top of the chip that goes into the skull. Some marking did appear on the bust but can be passed since it's the combat edition. Looking further I noticed that the magnet pen, cap, and the other piece that sits inside was missing. Then I tried to turn it on and it was a no go. I turned the bust upside down and noticed there's no battery cover and 3 dead Duracell batteries inside. Just to be clear, this bust was shipped directly from Sideshow, I am not sure what is going on over there. It did have a QC sticker attached, whatever that means to them because it definitely does not mean Quality Control. I have a feeling this might have been a used version they had or possibly a rejected piece that was sent back to them from a fellow collector. Has this happen to anyone? :mad:

As this thread has now been brought forward I'll move it to the Aliens and Robots section.
Sorry to hear of your troubles, I would definately get in touch with them if I were you.

Just wanted to point out that this thread is about Battle Damaged T-800 Arnold bust, not Endoskull.

That aside, c00kies292, this sounds terrible, contact SideShow right away, don't even think about keeping this bust, I can't understand how situations like this can even happen, it's not like SideShow is just starting their business. And you said it had QC sticker?!?!

Sorry about posting this in the wrong thread, thought it was for the endoskeleton. Anyways, I will contact Sideshow today when they open and see what they say. I know sometimes people forget to but in the extra parts but having QC inspect it and OK without it being there is truely unacceptable. I just feel bad for Sideshow cause they are wasting their money paying QC for the job they don't do. :slap
