Link to Eliminators photos, posted by a principal actor in the film, 26 August 2008
Author: reynoldsp1 from United States

I played one of the four Eliminators in this fun science fiction flick: the half man, half machine Mandroid. The film was released in January, 1986, in over 1,000 US theaters. The Hollywood Reporter said, "Eliminators is a first-rate spoof, a wonderful send-up of just about everything, sacred or even profane for that matter." Below is a link to photos taken on various locations around Madrid and before filming started, at fittings for the Mandroid suit and tank. Shooting commenced in July, 1985 and continued thru mid-October.

A new book will be published on the films of Charles Band, by British film historian Dave Jay in 2008.

Below is the link to the photos we took while filming:
