The head can also be articulated, not just left and right, but up and down, and also angled diagonally to left and right, as it is connected by a ball joint, no other endo on the market has this feature, with this degree of head articulation you can capture some excellent (as well as 'different') head poses. That one you've shown is facing upwards (not forward) as you can see three vertebras, forward facing you would see two.

The head piece is the same on both full scale statue and bust, in case you didn't know.

If you do happen to find a picture of the endo topping over with broken foot and toes, do please share it with us. I would be curious to know how many (if any) of the hundreds of batches sold, that this has occured.
Absolutely. I know that.

That would probably only happen over time, might take a year or two to have those issues from the lean, but it will eventually happen with some of those extreme examples.

From both Sideshow and Statue forums, I only recall SilentSurfer reporting to have some sort of leaning issue and and I really hope his one stands the test of time or if he was able to managed to find a way to better support his statue. Yet it actually may still stand the test of time, as most folks seem to judge this as an issue when it hasn't become an issue, yet, or if it ever becomes an issue.

The rest of us collectors, we were initially very concerned and hyper critical, but once in hand, there were no issues, each and every one of us are happy with the quality, accuracy and overall asthetics of the statue. For me, I absolutely rate this as the best endo, only second to the life size genisys version 2, no endo statue comes close to that one in terms of craftsmanship. The teeth on this one could be a little bigger and it is missing forearm cables. Those are the glaring flaws for me, other than that it is technically flawless and blows all the other original endos away.

The hip joint is very thick and embedded in a square shape key lock connection, it absolutely won't move as it's held by both thick metal rods and reinforced by inches of polystone. The foot peg is made of metal, with the right foot peg rod being almost twice the thickness of sideshows life size endo foot peg. The torso is 10kgs at most and my mate, a construction engineer said the rod thickness can easily hold 40 to 50kgs of weight without any deformity on the peg, even at a horizontal axis of 90 degrees (the statue forward lean is approx 30 degrees), so unless you physically bash and thump the statue on a daily basis, it'll stand for a very, very long time, long enough to not even care about it in future.

However, the pegs must sit flush, especially on the right foot, otherwise all the weight will lean forward on the feet and toes and this is where problems can occur.

For those who want to take a closer observation of the parts I've described, burtial has an excellent review on youtube where he shows close up shots of the leg rods and hip joints.

That said, I'm sure collectors other than myself would be keen to see, over the years, any Prime 1 endos having broken parts due to the leaning speculation described by some. It's always good to know the fault rate of a product for future track record of a company. There could be a few broken statues out of hundreds, there could be none, but that is life, nothing is not without an element of risk. For some if it's too much risk, that is perfectly ok to back out, I respect that decision, as I have backed out for nearly a decade until this great piece came along. To those who have it, including the bust, please post some pics, it'll be awesome to see the bust as there has rarely been pics of it. Stingray, can't wait for you to get the genisys endo, I'm becoming a huge fan of this design, it'll be worth the long wait, you deserve absolutely an awesome piece of terminator history. That statue is going to rock hard.
