I just finished watching Seasons 1 and 2 of the Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles. Excellent series that was cut way too short by a cancellation but Ashkanls has something that any Terminator fan would love with his Custom Terminator T800 vs Robocop Maquette.

Here is what the figure looks like in Pterodactyl mode:
