Free Issues arrived today (1 and 2). The teeth mystery is resolved - bare greyish plastic - so its paint them yourself time.
Other than a pint or two of Castrol every now and then its unlikely much has passed by these gnashers so they can be nice and pearly.
My guess is this is a factory T800 without skin (rather than Arnie having his burned off).
Still looks good even if I must be a drooling imbecilic moron to buy a part work - well that's what the press think.
Have fun peeps, I'll be back !

Received my free issues today also :)
Teeth don't look too bad to be honest, i did think the gaps would affect the look but they look great.
Here are a few photos :)

The shoulder joint parts 2-5 and 2-4 are coated plastic as is the lower jaw, I was hoping for a metal jaw.

Tiny amount of superglue on the fixing points. They look pretty good to be honest, good colour and no visual gaps.

Overall pretty good :D
shame about the scratches but a replacement shouldn't be a problem. The chrome finish looks good and the parts have a look of metal with fine surface marks :think:
I do see a slight difference in the chrome finish, on the plastic shoulder ring, its a little shinier but all good so far.
