Suggestions for Form-fitting Powersuit/armor base fig/parts?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi everyone,

I'm aiming to make a Terminator T-900 (featured in one of the T3 video games). Here's a reference pic:



Since it almost looks like a form fitting/padded power suit, I was thinking of using parts from a Cosmic Doctor Doom, and perhaps a Magneto.

Does anyone have suggestions on base figures or parts I should use?

Thanks!

Indeed. Although, there's an animated collection of short films set in the TERMINATOR universe coming out on DVD this summer (sort of like the "Animatrix" that accompanied the Matrix series). Perhaps some interesting stuff will be in that. And there's always fan edits...

Im not discrediting that T-900 Im just saying they already have one called T-900 are the t-70 the green ones in the auditorium (fun fact the auditorium has called the Miles Bennett Dison memorial auditorium after the character who worked for cyberdine in T2). also the T2 3D had some of the most lovable little terminator they were deployed from the HK they where called mini hunters I could find a very good pic so this will have to do, I haveyear passes to universal studios so I've seen the T2 3D show like 20 times




some extra T70 pic

I think unless Cameron comes back and makes the next Terminator the franchise might be dead and make even less sense the next time if it isn't. I know salvation was to be the first in a new trilogy at one point.

This T-900 (and the T-950-esk version with the red or blue highlights) are from the T3 videogame.

That, and you can see this model of terminator in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment that's actually in T3 - some techs are working on one in the background.



It doesn't make a damn bit of sense that humans would be designing the T-900 in 2003... but very little about T3 made "sense". It would have made more sense to include a T-70 from the Terminator 2: 3D ride instead.

I just like the T-900's design - it fits with the smaller, sleeker, more deadly motif of skynets advancing technology.

That's the problem with anything Terminator related. You never know if you're in the T2 timeline or one that is an alternate timeline. Everytime someone goes back in time the timeline alters so that the T2:3d stuff probably no longer even fits into the Terminator history.

Okat thats ridiculus there was a T-900 that predated that one and it was nothing more than a cumputer that convered with a wierd sign that text would appear on he called himself t-900 aka Vic its is in the lobby of ''terminator 2 3D:Battle Fort The Future'' (and no its not just T2 in 3D this is a sequel)at Universal Studios Hollywood

I'm thinking maybe a power ranger or two would be handy?

Far fetched idea, but scultp a little of the detail and place some shrink tubing over it

Heh, that's actually the Cosmic Doom I was planning on making from my FF series Cosmic Doom (movie) figure.

It gives me an idea though - If I can find another Stealth Striker Iron Man, I can do both the Cosmic Doom (Head/assorted parts) and my T-900.

Humm. You might be right about the thighs. I think I have some in my fodder bin.

Any/all suggestions still welcome.
