T-800 Infiltrator Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:14998  
Name:T-800 Infiltrator
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Terminator
Creator:spawnsauce  
Date Added:May 26, 2009
Base Figure:McFarlane Toys Movie Maniacs Endoskeleton

I got really excited over the upcoming Terminator Salvation that I had to make some Terminator inspired customs. I always liked the future scenes that are shown in each movie and the dark and gritty atmosphere they convey.

This custom in particular was inspired by Kyle Reese's flashback in T1 where the Terminator infiltrates the Tech Com Bunker and starts killing everyone. I thought it was cool how that stuff happened all the time and humans had to constantly be on guard once the T-800s went online. We haven't seen any more of that kind of thing in the movies yet, but hopefully we will.

I started off with the McF toys Endoskeleton and started building out from there. Because mine was broken and in so many different pieces, I ended up gluing most of the joints together. While some still move, it's more of a statue now than an 'action figure'. I knew I wanted it to be battle damaged and for most of the machine parts to be visible as well. I sculpted on as much flesh as I thought was necessary and then a tattered resistance uniform.

Let me know what you think.

the material is just T-shirt material and after being cut to shape, the edges are sealed with fabric glue to avoid fraying.
Then the cloth is painted over, it looks stiff but is still flexible.

Question: What material / process did you use to create the tattered clothing?
It looks like the material is stiff, or starched somehow. It works really well with the figure, and avoids the Peter-Pan-ish edges that fabric on smaller scale (heck, even Mego/12" scale) sometimes take on.

Veruh, veruh, veruh nice. I like how grungy and tattered he is... extra bonus points for not trying to make him look just like Arnold. Very accurate!

This is just too cool. Now I know what to do with my McF T800 as it breaks evertime I move it

Fan-TASTIC work man! I have 3 different terminators/ Endoskeleton's on the go as customs right now too. Great work with this figure... While this is a T-800 Endo model, I wish the Playmates T4 T-600 looked anywhere near as good.
