    Description

    Fully functional "old baby" from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. (Warner Bros., 2008) "Benjamin Button" (Brad Pitt) is a man who ages in reverse, starting life as an abandoned wrinkled "old man" infant. This is the fully animatronic FX figure used to first introduce new born "Benjamin Button" in the film. Constructed of sculpted and cast silicone skin over fiberglas, metal and fabric armature, housing electronics and mechanisms for remotely operating and articulating the puppet. The flesh-colored silicone skin of the baby is hyper realistically painted with detail and age spots. With prosthetic grade blue glass eyes under mechanized eyelids. The skin is split in the back to allow for access to the internal mechanism and as a port for present cables which extend 26 in. from the body where they connect to a 2 x 5 in. control box. The puppet is accompanied by 2 Futaba brand, battery operated, multi-levered remote controllers, 1- labeled "Hands/Shoulder" and 1- labeled "Head". The highly visible baby puppet is a centerpiece of the story of Benjamin Button. A state-of-the-art FX piece. Electronics present but untested. In production-used very good condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply. Comes with an LOA.
