I was hoping it'd be $1000-1200. Maybe $1500 at the highest. About a grand over that is unbelievable to me.

Maybe it's the license making it so expensive, but XM's Ghost Rider and RS Catwoman are both on 1/4 bikes and they were under $1000. That was a few years ago, but still...

This has that cheap toy vibe to it. Like those crappy statues you get when you buy the collector blu-ray edition...ya know. And if you press the secret button a tray is going to pop out from the base holding the CD's.

For $2500 you couldn't chrome the parts of the bike that are actually chrome? Instead they got that cheap silver paint finish. Now the whole bike looks made of plastic. Seriously what does a can of chrome spray paint cost? Also, for that kind of money, I want real punched hair, translucent resin skin, and actual fabric clothes. Its literally competing with other companies that deliver on all those points for the same price or less. The base is cheapened by the skynet logos on every corner, looks way to busy and distracts from the statue itself, adding to that cheap toy feeling.

I'd be honestly shocked if they sold more than 10 of these, no where near enough to cover production costs. So my guess is this never sees the light of day.

100% Agree with you! Exactly my thoughts.

The price seems crazy to me. I only paid about 600 more for the Queen studios T2 bust. From the pictures it really doesn't seem like the likeness and quality is worth that price.

So it turns out the signature is a printed copy but the description makes it looks it is "signed by The Terminator himself- Arnold Schwarzenegger "

And DSC is standing by it claiming "old school collectors will know it is not an original because that's not how hollywood works" -posted on Facebook.

Ugh auto pen signatures are one of my pet hates might as well have no signature at all they're completely pointless no better than getting a pic of Arnie's Sig off Google and printing it out.

Not even sure it is auto pen. I believe it is just a copy printed

That's bull----. They say it has a signature and show pics of them meeting with Arnold and the statue. Why the hell would anyone, old collectors or new, think it wasn't a legit signature? ---- this company with their photocopy signature and insane prices.
