Imperator Furiosa

By now I have to assume you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road, and you’ve probably said to yourself “Damn, Imperator Furiosa is pretty badass!” and then you remember that sweet skeleton arm on the door of the war rig and thought “I want one of those!” (Okay, maybe it’s just me…)

Imperator Furiosa's Skeleton Arm

Well, since I was unable to attain a high resolution image of the door of the war rig, I made do with a low-res version I found on the Internet, because that’s where you find pictures of things…

Anyway, I traced the arm in Inkscape and made a nice vector image suitable for vinyl cutting. It’s about 18 inches long, so if you’ve got a Silhouette Cameo like we have at Milwaukee Makerspace you can use the 12″x24″ cutting mat, or just cut without a mat. The DXF file below should import into Silhouette Studio easily.

Or maybe you want to use a laser cutter or some other CNC machine to make an arm. There’s a vector PDF file, and the original SVG file you can easily edit.

Some people assume I drive an orange Honda Element, but really it’s a Honda War Rig. Special model, they only made a handful of them. (My old car was a V8 Interceptor. It was totaled in an accident.)

Maybe you don’t drive a Honda War Rig. Well, you can still get in on the fun with your Mad MacBook Pro. Just size the vinyl appropriately and stick it on the lid. Can you handle the “BADASS OS X Word Documents and Excel Spreadsheet” editing that’s about to happen!? I don’t think you can!

Download the files and have a good time.

    I noticed the skeleton arm on Furiosa’s rig as well.

    And I in fact do have a war rig:

    Although script fitting – doubly so with Furiosa’s amputation – after mulling it awhile, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this graphic on *something* else a long time ago. Thinking it might have been a ‘correct’ Deuce rod or something?

  2. Jim, great looking war rig! You mention amputation, is there any proof that there was an amputation? I’ve read a few theories, one of which is that Furiosa may have been born with a defect. (Just wondering about the back story.)

    I really dig the arm. do you have it in a .png? I have a 72 inch Jaguar plotter.

  4. TrueView5, you can convert the SVG to a PNG at any size you want using Inkscape. (Let me know if you can’t figure it out and I’ll make an PNG if I get time to do it.)
