    The problem I have is the end has snapped and I no longer have the piece. The cable cannot connect without the end piece, even if i tried to glue it it would not connect.

    This is not an uncommon issue with the T-800. Depending on your piece there can be quite a bit of pressure when bend the thick braided wire to go into the shoulder hole and the weak spot is the point where the wire joins with the plug that goes into the hole.
    Over time, that weak spot will slowly give snapping the tip off.
    If you are fortunate enough to NOT have the tip in the hole, simple shove the wire tip into the hole and it should hold fine with really no way to tell difference.
    The tip is very small and when it snaps off it's usually impossible to find again. Trying to reattach the tip to the wire in a way to withstand the forces generated when you bend the wire is impossible unless you do something drastic like solder it. Simple glue won't be able to do the job.
    Hope that helps.

    This happened to the T-800 I used to own as well, minor defect. It was fine when I first got it but after about a year the little "L" shaped resin part that goes into the shoulder gave out couldn't hold down the thick steel cable, never got around to fixing it the piece was sold before I had a chance.

    Hello Dennis! I've been looking at Steves' photos of your home and awesome collection my friend a TRUE collector, unlike alot of us folks that have come and gone over the years. Your displays have a really cool museum feel to them the Howard Senft pieces the Cinemaquettes the Predator life size pieces the smaller items in the cabinets eye candy everything so nicely displayed. You reminded me of Asakas'collection, SimmonM and a few other collectors from Europe, keep up the good work. Your collection also cost me serious $$$ recently.

    I miss this statue. More so than any of the other CM's that I own. I recently received the Hot Toys 1:4 version and while it is excellent, there are a few things that bother me. Mainly the solid part inside the chest. The CM is the only version to get this right I think.

    Best idea would be Cinemaquette themselves as they may have spares knocking about at their office. Probably best to call them and mention you asked here first.
    Other than that I think your only option will be a scan of an original booklet.

    Hi Steve, thank you very much for the idea you are great! Steve the problem is I have no clue how that all works and additional English is not my mother tongue ;) ...Could you do me a big fav and could you ask them for me my friend? I would be grateful if you could do that! I think you have a better connection to the guys there :)

    Yeah sure it's really expansive my friend but I think what makes this piece so valuable is the fact that this was produced under the permission of Stan Winston aditional the COA what has the signature of Stan Winston! This piece is 1:1 the same piece only in 1:3 scale what you can find in the Stan Winston studio! ...of course we will see in future a lot of T-800 Endos and maybe they will have a lot of more features probably they will even have an animatronic feature loll but no one of them will have the direct authorisation of Stan Winston! ;) ...but yeah it's all a matter of taste
