    The T-X is a difficult piece to photograph because she's very reflective. Looks like the photographer has managed to take some professional, smooth looking shots. I like the composite too, and the sig is the icing on the Termicake.
    Thanks for re-posting here Tim. :)

    The best way to photgraph reflective things is to use a light tent , this way you dont get annoying reflections form your environment .

    Just got in a T-X. My most expensive purchase so far. Sold my entire line of Adam Hughes Comiquette statues to fund her. About 1900 shipped from the UK but she is in great condition.
    Kinda dusty though. Any advice on the safest way to polish her up? I don't think water is a good idea what about just a cotton rag?
    Any of you T-X owners have any ideas?
    Thanks
    Dennis

    Very cool there Doc, Tx is the only Cm I do not own,, I love the piece though it looks breathtaking the pose al the way down to those kick ass blue lights, congrats on your purchase.. I would def pick one upif the price was right but I cannot see myself spending over $2000 for a second tear character in an already 2 CM terminator pieces that I own.. but it is a fantastic piece.. the only Female int he Cm line thus far.. PICS when you get a moment..

    A can of compressed air and a soft duster would be my choice. Be careful with the compressed air near the electrics though since, it condenses on a surface is sprayed too much/held too near.

    Thanks for the advice Stephen, doubt you have much of a problem there since yours is under glass almost all the time.
    Enzucho, yeah it was an expensive piece but I don't regret it. I've always been very partial to the T-X design and this is the only full-scale model of her out there. Very pleased with it, looks sleek and deadly all at the same time and she has some WEIGHT for such a slight frame. You really feel that this piece is all metal (but it isn't right?) As for price, well I got it shipped from UK at that price so it's pretty good deal overall especially considering how tough it is to score one. One in the U.S. went for 2800 plus just a few weeks ago and I've seen asking prices over 3K. So, despite my reluctance to ship such valuable items from the UK, I decided to take a chance cause the price was right.
    As for pictures, I'm embarrassed to say I don't now how to post pics, can anyone help me out?
    Thanks
    Dennis

    As for edition number, she is an 83. I got Chris's T-X from his brother-in-law Mark. Again, it is a sad set of circumstances and Mark does not deal outside the UK but he made an exception for me because he knew me.
    I will treasure this piece and always remember from whose collection it came from. :|

    Yep, Raf well said. Knock on wood but with my profession, there SHOULDN'T be a need to have to sell my collection for funds God willing. As such, I think it is safe to say that this piece will be in my collection for life and hopefully generations as well.

    Congrats, Dennis! I love the detail on this piece. Only seen pics, but I bet she's a real beauty in person.

    Congrats Dennis.Beautifull statue.
    I remember there were a bunch of these with all sorts of flaws(mostly dents & scratches )...so that makes it even more special receiving a specimen in great condition when you know there are relatively few of these.

    Hi Tweety Dennis! My name is Greg, pleased to meet you!
    Congrats on your T-X purchase, it is a beauty piece to own! In addition to the suggestion of using pressurized air, I would also suggest using that dusting device, you know the one they advertize as the Swiffer. It picks up dust in those cracks that cannot be blown out with air.
