417. Screen-used animatronic alien egg from Aliens. (TCF, 1986) This is the terrifying articulating alien egg from the James Cameron Sci-Fi classic Aliens. Standing approx. 34 in. tall x 24 in. diameter, this is the cable-controlled egg that opens up in front of “Newt” (Carrie Henn). The body of the prop is composed of a fiberglass armature shell with the top section of cast foam latex to allow the blossoming effect. The petal portions of the egg remain fairly supple. Puppeteering cables are present, protruding from beneath the prop. Expertly painted in alien greens and visceral reds inside and out for close ups. The bottom of the egg is open to allow a deadly “facehugger” to be pushed up and out from below. Exhibiting minor restoration to replace wires inside the skin of the egg so that some movement to the flaps could be restored. In good condition. This is the only mechanical alien egg made for the production. A signature piece from this fantastic sequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
$8,000 - $12,000
