I've had this for nearly ten years in it's unpainted form. I decided it was time to FINALLY get this painted and displayed. I didn't assemble it, I bought it that way. It was originally a very light beige color. It now has a layer of ALCLAD metallic Chrome paint on it. Now then, the paint doesn't have a mirror like reflective quality like most think the endoskeletons have...which is fine by me. I feel it should be more like brushed aluminum. Anyway, as I said this was already assembled and I would have had to take it all apart to give it a proper paint-job, and after all this time, I really didn't want to mess with that AND risk damaging it. I just wanted to get it painted and done. The parts were originally from a guy who worked under license to create 1:1 Endoskeletons, his name was Paul Francis. He made a few copies of the arm parts available for sale, that's where the parts that make this came from. The clear tube is actually a vase I bought from a Michael's Crafts. It's not a perfect match to what you see on-screen, but it's probably as close as I'll get.
Very cool.. I preordered the 4K version of T2 which was supposed to come with a 1:1 replica arm like this.. but it ended up getting canceled because they couldn't make the arms right or something. Very nice!
Except I want a 3ft o-ring Joe. He-man and wrestling toys were always a bit too grab ass for my tastes. Never did understand why boys wanted to fondle man muscles dressed in daisy dukes all day, every day for years.
