This started out life from me updating the rather poor T-800 endoskeleton from playmates in favour of a NECA T-800. As I had some flea market wrestlers from jakks and a few spare heads from the various nec t2 releases I did this thinking it wouldnt work (hence the leg and arm articulation points still visible. The wrestler was 'hacked up' and the endo torso was added to the hollow wrestler chest. The smooth flesh was roughed up using superglue and activator and bullet holes were punched in using a heated pin. The limbs were cut and the appropriate robotics from the playmates t-800 were added. The braided hoses on the nec were guitar strings and the stringed flesh was hot glue dabbed on the custom then pulled across the figure than painted with clear red. The head was the playmates endo head disassembled and cut in half with the other side coming from a neca t2 figure. The gun was from a pound store kids toy and painted up. The base is from the spares box and was covered in a shhet of wet and dry and painted to resemble tarmac. The entire figure was then painted with vallejo, citadel and tamiya paints.
I never expected this figure to work as well as it did but it was a dream to do and not as hard as I thought it would be.
