We got a tracking number with the shipper not receiving the package. Hence no movement.
Seller in question is no longer registered with ebay.
Don't think we will see it :-(
If not received on the day it is expected, we will file a dispute.

Too bad. Really wanted this piece to fix/repair.

UPDATE!
We have movement on the tracking number!

Great news!
It arrived yesterday. In original shipping box, With art box and all packing. Shipping box is numbered 274/500. I do not see this number any other place such as statue, statue base, etc..

My statue/kit (from ebay seller) had the neck broken, one neck cable was off and a hydraulic tube cleanly broken on a leg. I blame packaging on the broken neck. The foam to hold the statue in place is up against the forehead. This area should be open. The chest area should have been used instead to keep the statue in place for transit (all my opinion of course).

I drilled a hole into the neck and used an aluminum tube to reinforce this area. The other parts were simply put back into place.

All parts that I repaired above were glued together using two part epoxy.
I also used Floquil paints for touch up (Platinum Mist mixed with Engine black, Bright Silver).

At the moment I am not planning on a repaint.

My take on the statue is... This does not feel like a $600 dollar statue. The material it is made from (?plastic?), the way it was glued together (glue strength) and it is painted poorly (some places don't have any paint!).

Overall, the detail is excellent but not perfect. I think the paint and glue application hinders some of the detail. Paint application was sloppy if non existing in some areas. This includes the 'gun'.

I fully understand the paint color choice and it looks good in person. It has a screen look to it.

Overall, for the price I paid vs the repairs I did... This is a keeper.

Bad cell phone pictures...

Packaged...


Broken...


Fixed (gun not attached)...

Unbelievable statement considering how your Endo was produced.

This is what I don't like about Chronicle. Too quick to diss other companies work instead of worrying about their own.

Full size replica versus a scaled replica and the way they are painted/weathered can be vastly different to achieve the same and or similar look.

Getting it correct on a scaled replica can be extremely difficult.
Pleasing everyone is equally so.

If a person or a company takes it personally that is great! It means that they care. That they will hopefully try and or do better on the next piece that they make.

If one does not like what is produced, limit what you buy from them or stop buying from them all together.

This is why I stopped buying statues and went back to model kits. I can build it myself and the only one I can be upset with is myself.

Side note: I unfortunately canceled our Chronicle Collectibles Rodger Young. Hopefully Chronicle lets us reorder it in the near future. Lots of bad press about the kit but if I can build the cooper SD twice (one commission and one for us) then I say easy as pie for the Rodger Young.

Anyways...

Overall, I am happy with Terminator Genesys statue for the price that was paid.

CC got duped by the factory being a newer company, SS has been in business for 20+ years, their standards should be much higher than they are. If we can blast SS for how poor their endo is(and it is, even the proto), Paul should be able to also.

I don't mind criticism against another company, they already admitted the Genisys endos were a failure and not what they wanted. SS has no excuse for how bad their proto turned out.

So he knows how the paint is going to turn out?!

Much better than their offering I'll bet.
