Paul’s Peg > TatTF: The Terminator Flesh Maker

In the early 90s Kenner decided that they needed to cash in on the Terminator franchise the only way they knew how, by making toys based on the sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. I skipped the entire line at the time, because I found the figures massively disappointing overall, but it did have it’s high points. Unarguably the strangest item in the Terminator toy line up, and perhaps in any toy line period, is the Bio-Flesh generator:

The idea of a toy that can make skin is something out a nightmare, but here it is. While it’s certainly in the realm of other toys that involve pouring something gross on action figures like the Masters of the Universe Slime, it occupies a peculiar place in toy history.

Did anyone have this thing? Was the skin even half way realistic? And more importantly was it edible?
