This is the Terminator's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) head appliance with peel back reveal of Endo brain chip cover used in the James Cameron’s 1991 sci-fi sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
This piece was used by Arnold Schwarzenegger when Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and her son John Connor opening up the Terminator's head to extract and reboot his CPU, giving him the ability to learn and adapt easier. To make the scene even more striking is the fact that you can see the front and the back of the Terminator, as a mirror on the wall appears to reflect everything that is happening. Normally, such an effect would be achieved using expensive post production effects and superimposing two separate shots together. However, for this shot, the filmmakers simply had a window with the set, Leslie Hamilton (Linda's twin sister), and Arnold Schwarzenegger where the mirror was and in the foreground they had an animatronic head of Arnie with Linda Hamilton performs emergency surgery on T-800. By carefully choreographing their movements, it looked like we saw a mirror and the reflection of the Terminator getting his head examined. This scene was cut from film release but included in extended edition. In my opinion this scene is actually key for the plot. It's a shame they had to get rid of it. This is why the terminator is able to learn from John Connor how to be more human.
The piece was used on Terminator's face reflected in the mirror at the background, and worn by Arnold himself. It was marked “left mirror” at the bottom by production indicating its use on the left side for this scene.
This left side head appliance has been realistically painted and detailed with small silver rubber sections resembling a metal endoskeleton with peel back reveal of Endo brain chip cover, helped give Arnold the allusion of a robot interior.
The piece is made of foam latex , as well as rubber and covers the left side of top of the skull. The skin features artificial wounds (created to look as though the skin was ripped off) which are detailed with fake blood. The plastic faux metal skull pieces display different shapes and indentations, as well as fake blood smears. Additionally, the hair, was made to match Arnold’s hair tone .
The back of the appliance have adhesive residue from where it was attached to the actor including hair possibly Arnold's own hair.
It features some wear from production use as well as age, including cracks in the paint and foam, but remain in overall good condition.
This piece was acquired from an individual who worked on the film. Comes from Profiles in History Lot.434 Dec 11th, 2008
