    I think we all here on CBD have some emotional investment in the piece to some degree or other. I know I got caught up with it - I mean the videos were compulsive viewing, and I really looked forward to the updates, and the opportunity to visit this thread to follow, comment, and offer feedback. It was like following a Republic Serial like King of the Rocket Men.
    Also, y'know at the time this was Raf's first big custom, so for me there was definitely an element of uncertainty over whether it was going to work out or not. And as the videos became more extreme (who can forget the surgical incision into Arnies face? :waah: ), the feeling of you have to be kidding me was replaced by one of crikey, this is actually going to work! as each new video saw Raf experimenting and using every means at his disposal to make the ultimate Arnie custom.
    I'm not over exaggerating when I say this custom was a unique event. Sure we've had the Predator and Zorro (both fantastic), but the T850 is the one that started it all, and paved the way.

    Aw very nicely put Steve I feel the love , it really was I think the most intense and nerve wracking custom I have done , I as well think its the best one yet, I don't think there will be a better one then the t850. , I just don't think i can ever top that custom, once Halloween is past and gone I really want to commit and get the one on my bench back on my collection , thanks again buddies gor the kind words :love:

    I think this one will snowball as it gets towards the end. Going to be a lot of fun watching this one end tonight!
    Raf :wave: will you be online here as it closes?

    indeed.. for example the first 0 feedback bidder ( the guy whos i know from collector-tr forum ) is not a CM collector but he is a big Terminator fan. He has 0 feedback but he is a known collector here.

    No matter where the price goes, as of writing, $4,300 is a considerable compliment for your work on this one Raf. :yes:
