Collection of puppets from Big Trouble in Little China including translucent Lo Pan puppet. (TCF, 1986) A wonderful group of screen-used puppets from signature scenes in Big Trouble in Little China. Included are the translucent Lo Pan puppet torso with silicone head and puppet arm. Each is articulated with cable controls and lit from within in the film to create the ghostly spectre of elderly Lo Pan. Also included is the articulated upper torso puppet, puppet mask and swollen feet of the exploding version of Thunder, who, with the aid of air bladders, inflates the body like a balloon and used steam to shoot out of its ears and nostrils in the memorable demise of the character in the film’s climax. In addition, a rough casting of the flying eyeball monster and a number of Beastman puppet/costume pieces including the articulated Beastman mask with cable controls, stunt foam latex mask, underlying mask buck, forearm extensions with claw gloves, body suit, forearm extensions with articulated hand mechanism and costume feet. Most of the pieces show moderate to heavy latex deterioration.
