This is the Pumpkin Creep animatronic based on a prop I saw on Skull and Bone web site, My Prop rises from the ground with a growl looks left and right complaining about people walking through his pumkin patch and then gets really mad and reaches out to grab someone. Heres what I have now more to come soon. The pics.

I love how you incorporated everything into a see-thru skeletal look! It'll keep the audience wondering how this thing can move without machanics!

Very nice prop! A very clever use of a simple 4 bar. I think it will be a very popular and effective prop. Nice work finishing it out.
Geat job!

Impressive! ( I save that word for the the truely...impressive)..
How will you trigger the head animitronic when it reaches it's apex?
Will it be VSA controlled? You should look into purchasing the Exorcist VSA trigger device. Go to www.Skulltronix.com and browse to the exorcist section. It would be perfect for what you're trying to do.

Rock on!! That is an excellent rig. Minimal mechanical bars to distract from the prop, and good threatening stance & movement! That should be menacing as hell when it's finished!

Thank you .I will program the movements with a pico plc(allen bradly),it will be a 3 input sensor array, left, right and, middle the head will face the sensor triggered as the TOTs walk by, when they reach the center sensor, BIG SCREAM and the arms reach out for them. I have the VSA software and use it on other props, and I make my own triggers for it (a very EZ key board hack). Thank you for the heads up on the trigger.
