Terminator: Salavation director McG says he intends to dedicate his film to the late Stan Winston, whose team created the T-800 Terminator in the classic 1984 original. He spoke to reporters during an unveiling of new footage from the film this past Wednesday in Los Angeles.
 
After talking to James Cameron about the proposed Part IV in the franchise, McG, "felt I needed to go a step further and get the creator of the machine, Stan Winston. He's a legend in our industry… we talked and he started getting excited about it. We started talking about creating a T-600 and I told him I really wanted to build it. I wanted it to look like a Russian tank: something mean and nasty, and of that dirty future. Sort of the [H.R.] Giger fatigue that you see in the Alien pictures. Sadly, Stan passed during the making of this movie and it's my intention to dedicate this film to his memory. He's provided so much for all of us as film fans."
 
In addition, McG promised that a new trailer containing new footage for Terminator: Salvation will play in front of Watchmen this March (as if fans need another reason to queue up for Watchmen). Terminator: Salvation is slated to open Memorial Day weekend.

Cool about Stan, but correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't the new version of the T-800 not look the same as the original.  Upper torso does, but lower looks different to me.  I've seen several photos, but it might just be my memory that's faulty.

I finally found something to praise this movie about.

I think we are getting the models That Kyle Reese was speaking about to Sarah in T1. The Rubber Skin - Bad Breathe , very easy to spot but very Tough ala like a Tank.

Im freakin stoked for the new series of Terminator Movies. I can't wait till this comes out.  I love the Tv Show and thats Equally as great in my opinion. That starts up in Feb again.

I guess McG is doing alot so fans are happy with his vision of the Terminator Saga. It's cool he's trying not to dissappoint us.

A fitting tribute for a true legend.

The article mentions T-600 looking like a tank. Is he talking about a different machine altogether or an earlier version of the T-800?

 A great tribute to Stan.

If McG makes this a solid movie I may be tempted to remove him from my dipsh!t director list.

From Wiki:

The T-600 is a line of fictional robots in the  Terminator  series. It can be considered a  prototype  to the more well-known  T-800  terminator robots in the series.

It'll be a great tribute if the film is any good. Which by the way I believe wholeheartedly will be, from the beginning.

I happy to at least see Stan Winston up close at Comic Con 07 along with Faverau and Downey Jr. sucks he's gone.
