    Description

    Peter Weller wax head and plaster cast as "Robocop" by Henry Alvarez. (Orion Pictures, 1987) Cast in wax from the original movie mold by Henry Alvarez who was not only one of the leading suppliers of wax figures to museums around the world, but also made his mark in the film industry. Alvarez worked with FX wizard Rob Bottin, on many films, including Robocop. Alvarez was integrally involved in creating the look of the title character's face and head particularly for scenes when Robocop's helmet was removed. Bottin admired Henry's waxwork and asked him to privately create a wax version of that head from the movie mold. Henry happily agreed, provided he was allowed to create a copy for himself. There are only two in existence. This is Henry Alvarez's personal copy. An 11 x 8 in. wax face on fiberglass shell with integral pipe armature. Fully hand-painted and detailed and with prosthetic grade glass eyes. Includes a plaster cast of neck armor component. In fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
