    Behold, Westworld’s Gunslinger–the original Terminator as portrayed by the great Yul Brynner. At Monsterpalooza, we chat with sculptor Nick Marra about his amazing portrait of the character. This silicone sculpture not only captures Brynner’s likeness, but is mechanized to reveal his true robot face in spectacular fashion. Draw!

    Since it’s silicone I’m guessing that it doesn’t last very long unless you place it in the freezer.

    What? Why? These last a long time. What silicone do you think they use?

    You’re probably thinking of polyurethanes, they just can’t last, they’re naturally pretty volatile.As to silicones, it depends mostly on the purity and the kind of curing agent or catalyst that was used. Platinum cure is pretty much standard these days in art, and it will last for maybe 3 to 5 decades under normal conditions, very stable against oxygen and UV exposure. There are cheaper catalysts, but they do cause an accelerated breakdown.

    Wow, utterly amazing. I wonder what Mr Brynner’s children would say if they were to see it in person, I’d be moved to tears at such a vivid rendering, if it were my father.

    This is one of three movies that all seem to go together to me; Westworld, Rollerball and Logan’s Run. Brynner was awesome.The detail in the skin is unbelievable and the hands, by themselves, are amazing. You can even see the skin stretching and distortion that would be caused by the grip. Pretty cool.
