Well hi again folks!
This came together quickly for me because I was excited to work on it. Due to the parts I used, I thought of it as on par as the average marvel legends figure's articulation, and seeing that there was a longstanding terminator series of comics, I felt it was best to represent it like a legendary comic book hero's.
So that's what it is, my version of the LEGENDARY COMIC BOOK HEROES take on the Terminator.

Recipe:
Head, Hands, Jacket, and Accessories: McFarlane Terminator
Torso and Arms: TNA James Storm
Legs and Feet: TNA Lance Hoyt

I liked the Mcfarlane figure, it was a gift from a friend who cleaned house. I'm an articulation nut though and I wasn't happy looking at it.
I got these 2 wrestling figures for just pennies a glass, and so I took the upper half of the James Storm, removed the jacket, sculpted the shirt on the chest, including a couple of tears for battle damage, wrinkles in the fabric, and the collar.
Although I loved how the McFarlane Terminator jacket looked, I had to repaint it to match it to the wrestler's arms. After laying down my flat blacks, I mimicked the treatment the jacket originally had to look aged, by some dry brushing and a light wash, I also did so to the biker pants. I painted the boots with a some dirt spray, and a bit of dirt dry brushing. I felt they were a little too shiny plastic looking to be left. I don't think it came up too well in the photos, but at least it got rid of the massive glare of the original shiny plastic. It looks a little too dark, maybe I need to do a quick lighter sweep to make it a bit more visible.

Thanks for the view, and... "I'll be back!"

"Limited to no pose"? What are you talking about!? The only thing you can't move on NECAs is the legs!

This is a great figure, and the perfect answer to NECA's limited to no pose-ability in their Arnold Terminator figures!
