Terminator statue in Ripley's Orlando Odditorium is, in fact, odd

Terminator-full-bodyThe Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium has acquired a life-size statue of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator that doubles as a tribute to the film industry and its biggest stars. The piece, by artist Enrique Ramos, took five months to create and uses a variety of media — “even a real vampire bat!” says the release — and will be accompanied by a motorcycle when it moves to Ripley’s Hollywood Odditorium later this year. Edward Meyer, Ripley’s VP of Exhibits and Archives, describes the statue as Ramos’ opus, “his 9th Symphony — both in complexity, detail, and historic scope. He has virtually told the history of the film industry in one spectacular sculpture.” Click here to see a large full body shot, and see how many films and stars you can pick out. (Spoiler: That’s Cameron Diaz on his forehead and Julia Roberts on his cheek.) We got the full list, which we’ll paste below. The sculpture seems, well, not all that thrilling at first. But when you see two of the close-ups, it becomes slightly cooler…
