Screen-used Alien filming miniature from Alien 3

(TCF, 1992) This exceptionally rare filming miniature was originally made for the production by Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. of Amalgamated Dynamics. A one-quarter scale rod puppet, it is cast in foam latex over an articulated skeleton, and was hand-painted by Gino Acevedo, who went on to direct the make-up effects departments on all three Lord of the Rings films. Designed to be used on the miniature sets, the puppet measures 3 ft. long (as currently positioned) and features a long tail of segmented vertebrae, as well as a translucent cranium which partially conceals the ghostly “gray matter” of the creature’s brain. Being a hero close-up miniature, it is exquisitely detailed throughout and is the most lifelike and realistic screen-used creature from any of the Alien films we’ve ever encountered. It is completely un-restored and remains in its original screen-used condition. This puppet was previously on display at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for the 2006 exhibit It’s Alive: Bringing A Nimatronic Characters to Life on Film, and was featured along with a host of screen-used props from Rick Baker, Ray Harryhausen and others. Housed in a custom lucite display case, which measures 45 in. wide x 25 in. tall x 8 in. deep. This fantastic rod puppet of H.R. Giger’s chilling Alien creature is one of the most impressive artifacts from the Alien films a collector could ever hope to acquire. Estimate $25,000 – $35,000
