My brother Ben (SSF member Indiana) recently finished his version 2 Kyle Reese. The entire outfit is custom made. The shotgun is a combo of two Ithaca 37 shotguns (repainted). The head was sculpted by Snyder-Man and painted by Ben.

We also have a pair of more accurate shoes on the way.

That looks great!!!:clap

The shirt is the best part, so accurate. It is so hard to find a 1/6 shirt that Biehn wore in the film. I never really knew what kind of shirt it was, kinda like a hospital shirt. Also the trench is very nice. Was it sewn or just dyed? I know there is custom work involved in there. I was wondering if your brother could make another shirt wink wink nudge nudge ;)

Great job!:lecture

Looks great! My only suggestion would be to repaint the shotgun to get rid of the plasticky look.

Thanks, Hicks! Ben dyed the coat as individual pieces and then sewed it together using a pattern he made.

I'll ask him about the shirt.:wink1:

Thanks, Reinhardt!

Oddly enough, though, the shotgun looks much better in person. I didn't even think about it looking like plastic until you said something.

Wow, that is incredible. By far the best Kyle Reese ive ever seen. I especially like the painting of the sculpt. Something in the eyes that I can't quite put my finger on just captures the character.

I might consider making a few shirts. I was thinking if I did, maybe $25-$30.

Oh, and the shoes came the other day; I will try to take some pictures in the next day or so.

:goodpost: You should have seen how many hours he worked on this guy. There is not one detail he left out.

Hi Mr Fusion you should get together with a few others on here and offer a custom kyle kit-Head,clothes and maybe parts gun etc.
I have not got a Kyle reese in my collection yet but your headsculpt looks the best yet.
Just an idea.

Well, the shotgun is from an Ultimate Soldier shotgun set. It is two of the shotguns glued together. Here is a link to the set on ebay:

As for making a kit, I am not sure about that. I would need to find a better color material for the coat because I had to dye it to get it to the color it is now.

Looks great! My only suggestion would be to "weather" the coat a bit. Make it look more realistic.

Yeah, the only thing is that he gets it right off the rack in the movie. I am not sure how weathering will make it look brand new.

I agree. Reese steals a brand new coat and only wears it for around day so it was looking pretty good.

Wow. That is insanely cool. Would you ever consider producing the pants and trench coat for sale?
