(TCF, 1986) This awesome display depicts the final moments of Thunder, one of the superhuman ninjas sent to defeat Kurt Russell in John Carpenter's macabre martial arts masterpiece, Big Trouble in Little China. The screen-used head, hands and feet came directly from Boss Films' Richard Edlund, who supervised the astounding visual effects. Amazingly, the head still inflates via two air hoses connected to internal bladders. The makeup effects pieces are mounted on a custom flexible mannequin dressed with accurate replicas of Thunder's shredded ninja wardrobe.
