John Connor is the leader of the human resistance movement known as Tech-Com that fights to destroy Skynet, the supercomputer mainframe of the machines that have dedicated themselves to the eradication of humanity. In Terminator Salvation, Christian Bale portrays John Connor around the year 2018, as a thirtysomething-year old battle-experienced Tech-Com soldier married to Kate Brewster (played by Claire Danes in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines). It will also feature a new character named Marcus Wright and the younger Kyle Reese character, who was played by Michael Biehn in the original movie.
This 1/6 scale 12-inch kitbash of Christian Bale as John Connor from Terminator Salvation is not meant to be screen accurate but just a quick bash put together in less than 30 minutes, just for the fun of it :) Hope you all enjoy the pictures
A teaser picture of John Connor showed him armed with a M4 carbine with the XM26-LSS (Lightweight Shotgun System). John Connor was also seen with a Heckler & Koch HK416 with 14.5 inch barrel which was derived from the M4A1. Delta replaced its M4s with the HK416 in 2004 after tests revealed that the piston operating system significantly reduces malfunctions while increasing the life of parts. No 1/6 scale HK416 is available yet though :(
The underslung shotgun has a detachable magazine with rounds
I also switched weapons and included shots of Christian Bale as John Connor with the Heckler & Koch (H&K) G-36 assault rifle. IMHO this weapon looks more high tech when compared to the M4 as Terminator Salvation is set in the future.
