Seems too complicated

No, I haven't tried it, but it seems too complicated. I'd just use a motor with a disk attached to the shaft, and a lever from the disk to the jaw. One rotation of the disk will cause the jaw will move up and down once.

If you use a stepper motor, you can get the control you need (speed, and number of rotations) pretty easily.

Even simpler

If cost isn't an issue, you can use servos to control the jaw and/or neck

ive never seen it done on a skull per se - but i have seen some larger animated monster faces done with it - i think thats the only way id ever animate a face - all these skulls are wonderful and great and are a tremendous showcase for your talent - but for a situation like my haunt - no one will really be able to pick up on the subtletees or realy be able to appreciate it unless they sit and get real close to it - i would however like to make a HUGE talking skull - that could get some attention - like 3 ft high or somethin - i dont think you could use the pneumatics for a realistic size skull, but i bet it'd be great for large ones - use some flow controlls here and there for the subtletees and you got a wicked piece! - riley
