20 - Live Auction 2016 - Dr Wren (J.E. Freeman) Animatronic Bust
Stock # 59959
A bust of Dr. Wren (J.E. Freeman) used in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's sci-fi horror sequel Alien: Resurrection. The USM Auriga's lead scientist met an unusual death courtesy of Purvis' (Leland Orser) chest-burster aboard mercenary ship the Betty, a special effects bust facilitating the gruesome special effect. The upper body torso has no arms and is constructed from dense foam and dressed with a red long sleeved top under a green jumper, covered with copious prop blood. The silicone face is set in a screaming expression and also features faux-blood and hand-punched hair. It rests on a hollow fibreglass shell with a hole through the forehead and back of the skull. Inside are remnants of the mechanical device used to thrust the chest-burster (not present). It remains in good condition with some small tears to the silicone around the forehead. Dimensions: 30 cm x 55 cm x 60 cm (12" x 21 ½" x 23 ½") As this item contains mechanical components, every effort has been made to describe them accurately; however no guarantee or warranty is made as to functionality, lifespan or safety of those components. It is entirely incumbent on the new owner to satisfy themselves as to their safe use and maintenance.
