Like other props from this era of the silver screen, some mystery surrounds the original artifact, and much of its past has been shrouded by the mists of time. Needless to say, some archaeological digging was required! But collector extraordinaire, actor, and Paul Blaisdell colleague Bob Burns helped uncover the facts.
Lurking in Mr. Burns" basement were some rare behind-the-scenes photos featuring the sculptor of the original prop, Chris Mueller. It is only with these detailed photos and Bob's encyclopedic knowledge of the film that this piece could be recreated with the highest level of accuracy using advanced 3-D modeling techniques.
Each replica is cast in heavyweight stone effect polyresin and then hand-painted to create an aged fossil effect. Support bars are permanently molded into the wrist bones to create stability, and a durable replica suitable for display, mirroring the "specimen" presentation style seen in the film during the scenes when the fossil is examined at the marine biology institute.
Each Creature hand/claw comes with a limited edition plaque, COA, and detailed prop story booklet. Each piece is also presented in a full-color box designed to emulate a shipping crate.
Dimensions in inches: 19 height x 9 width x 9 length.
Collectors Note: Brand-new and factory sealed! Very limited quantity on hand.
