I love him. Only problem? I can not, for the life of me, pop out his regular arm to put in the robot one. It is damn near impossible. I've tried 3x now to no avail to get the regular arm out. What is the secret?

Those who have'em for several years: heads up.

My belt just ripped a few days ago. Kinda fell apart.
Also the head connector became kinda brittle.
The head falls of very fast now.
But the faux leather is still great on mine...

Yes I seem to recall it was very difficult. It's a pain in the backside but you'll need to break out a hair-dryer and heat it up.

really? I've heard of people doing this with figures. How long should I heat it? Should I set it on low? Is there a risk it will melt him in anyway?

Well I've never damaged a figure with a hairdryer. I even use the highest setting. Just don't hold it right up against the plastic. It softens joints so they can usually be separated with ease.

Man HT did such a great job with the Terminator line and we were lucky to get all them figures but i do wish they finished off the series and gave the people what they really want which is a Terminator 1 Kyle Reese and 1984 Endo.

I was happy with this figure at the time, but the head looks too small now, especially standing next to the later figures. I fitted mine with a 2nd DX10 head, for continuity, as i have my DX10 with minigun, and 2 versions of the DX13.

It worked :) Thanks again. Now afterward, I had some difficulty getting the original arm back in and the robot arm popped out a little too easily at times but the point is it worked and I had fun with it. Even changed his shirt. I think I might even like the tan one better. I'll have some pics up when I get a chance. Terminator, Kirk and Spock, Hulk(of course lol) it was fun.

Might have been changed out to the TTM20 for better articulation in the elbows, the original figure has a single joint at the elbow, the TTM20 has a double jointed elbow, could you provide a photo of the body so we can id it?

That sucks. I did it to most of mine - I also switched to DX10 heads - so all of my MMS117s are basically DX10s wearing MMS117 clothes now. Recently I was doing an inventory of my collection and assembling all figures with their relevant accessories when I realized that if I were to ever sell these figures I would need to at least provide the original arm style as an extra so that the endoskeleton arm could be used. This seller may have completely forgotten.

I have one of my mms117 figures with the TTM20 body myself, I had my first mms117 on a shelf and it fell and broke, Mike Ecko bought the broken body and head, then when the TT20s hit stock I bought the head from you, put it on the ttm20 and used the outfit I had to from the broken 117 to make it:lol

I'll probably get an original body somewhere. At least the TTM20 has the good articulation and is probably sturdier than the old bodies.

I think its safe to say we have a massive hole in our collections at this point. Arnold plain head from T2.

This one, and the DX13 do not cut the mustard. And even just the 5 or so years ago saw advancement in heads.

Friends our Terminator figures are dated.

We need a new better likeness, properly scaled non PERS head.

I wish the 1/4 DAM toys one could be replicated in 1/6

I still like the battle damaged heads PERS and all and the T1 ones as well despite the PERS and awful hairline. it's T2 that's massively outdated now.

Outdated and inconsistent across the line as far as head sizes.

The thing is there's no guarantee of new figures being better. You can't guarantee that previous sculptors have learnt lessons on the likeness and Hot Toys would probably defer to them regardless. So you could just end up with new heads with new flaws or the same flaws repeated. They can't even seem to get the shape of Arnie's face and skull right and if they do it right from one angle they've messed it up from another angle etc etc.

Basically, yes, I'd love remakes of all the Terminator figures, I just have no faith that they'd nail them now anymore than they did then.

It's also not just the heads - ideally they'd make a new body - particularly for T2. The DX10 body is unfortunately ruined by that neck which is far too stiff and lacking in detail. You could have a 100% perfect headsculpt and it'd be compromised by having to sit atop that stupidly unnatural looking neck.

Raymond F.
02-26-2018, 08:27 AM
yup all good points.

I'd like to see sculptors and even KO companies like Eleven give a break to Joker and Indy and Logans and try some takes at Arnold. It would also give me motivation to Frankenstein and/or shave and sculpt the body to get some further accuracy in his build.

What's the value on this guy now? Everything is good condition, minus the spare hand pegs and a couple jacket studs have come off over time. All original HT pieces though.

I'm going over my collection, and while this is an awesome piece still in my opinion, it doesn't really fit in with the rest of my collection.

Resurrected my mms117 with the supreme Arnold headsculpt.
I really like the 1/4 enterbay headsculpt and the supreme is basically the same in 1/6.
I know he's not 100% accurate but way much better than the original head.

I think the headsculpt could be a fair bit better at this point but it was an unbelievably packed release. The only things it didn't have that would have been great would be a fully blasted open Pescadero head and an extra long stabbing finger left hand for the ''Call to John'' scene.

Yes the sculpt does look dated tbh. I usually like displaying mine with the cop helmet and shades, so the sculpt is not so much an issue for me.
Do HT even still have The Terminator licence? if they do then they might as well get rid because it seems they only care about Iron Man again. :gah:

Yeah, it's dated, but man does it still look good. More than that though, the Hot Toys T-1000 figure represents a virtue- the time where you see Hot Toys and you immediately think of infinite possibilities. I remember looking at the promo shots back in 2010/11 and thought "Wow, I'm definitely in for all the T1, T2 and TSCC stuff ONCE they make those!" Little did I know that it was nothing more than a pipe dream.

Ditto with the MMS117 too and for what it's worth, it still has things going for it that the DX10 doesn't, so it's not hopelessly outclassed.

Great.
I might get a lot of enterbay 1/4 stuff at the end of the month fingers crossed.

Thanks for the kind words on the headsculpt upgrade.
The body is a ttm20 with mms117 arms.

I tried with my ''real'' mms117 too, and it fits also nicely. I had to Dremel the head a bit so its not too tight on the necks.

Last but not least, the color of the headsculpt is a bit too brown. Mms117 is very pale so it shows.

Actually I wondered if there was a way except full repaint to make rubber necks/chest darker?
Dye? Anybody ever tried to fix a color mismatch?

Thanks

Edit, since I'm in a Terminator mood ,I checked all my figures and had a few bad surprises with the feet connectors, I have a few who broke.
So I was thinking about recasting some but I found an easier cheaper way.
I use feet extenders, they are sturdy and also you don't need to hunt for longer feet pegs, regular ones give you the same height.

Great points! Still two of my favorite figures in the collection.

I ended up picking up "3" of the T-1000 (2 complete boxed sets and one loose) because of the numerous display options. Also, the doughnut head that came with the Sarah-T-1000 figure is a must-have.

No one's making any to my knowledge. Been looking for a few since the 117, DX10 and 13 all share the same crummy belt.
