T-800 Endoskeleton from "The Terminator" (1984)
About the Design
First revealed in the climax of James Cameron's original cult-hit "The Terminator," the T-800 was a chrome-plated fighting robot of enormous strength and durability. First realized via a combination of stop-motion animation and live puppetry, the robot was brought to life via more sophisticated CGI in Cameron's 1992 follow-up, "Terminator 2."
