I honestly don't know but looking at the skull seems to be made of foam. I would think that it wouldn't hold up well with movement.

The skull from FC is like the foam skulls you can purchase in season at Walgreens for about $4.00. You would have to do a lot of cutting like opening the top and removing the lower jaw. Then you have to figure out a method to mount the servo.

If you only want a moving jaw then it would be far easier to use a Bucky skull since the build is so well documented.

I'm not saying you could not use that FC skull but they are pretty fragile. If you're going to put time and effort into the build, use a tried and true technique that will result in a long lasting prop.

I agree with ScareFX. I used the Scary Terry method and haven't had a bit of trouble with my skulls. Scary Terry's site tells you all you need to know to make the skull. Use the Cowlacious servo driver board, either with or without the ISD option. The ISD is good for sound on demand, but the quality isn't as good as a CD or MP3 player. On the other hand, hacking a CD or MP3 player to trigger when you want it is more difficult. If you're going to loop the sound, definitely use CD or MP3. It's really quite easy to make - have fun!
