    Description

    Hero "Xenomorph" skull-breaking "ramming tongue" from Alien. (TCF, 1979) Vintage original Alien tongue FX prop constructed of solid cast resin over a boxed steel armature with screw thread. Expertly studio painted in otherworldly biomechanical grays and ambers and finished to appear as a ribbed extraterrestrial chrome-toothed mouth within a mouth. Swiss Surrealist H.R. Giger designed the weaponized pharyngeal jaws located at the tip of a long, tongue-like proboscis jutting from the Xenomorph's mouth. FX legend Carlo Rimbaldi fashioned the prop to be affixed to a pneumatic ram that launched at high speed to violently punch through a hyper-realistic wax bust of "Parker" (Yaphet Kotto) in the unforgettable scene where he meets his end. The prop measures 26 x 3 x 2.5 in. Exhibiting age and production wear. Retaining remnants of dried methylcellulose alien slime. In vintage very good condition. Comes with black wooden 27.5 x 6 in. display base. Provenance: Acquired from Twentieth Century Fox.
