This piece, designed by Academy Award-winning special effects group Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (ADI), is made of resin molded around a long steel pipe. It is hand-painted silver and black, and lacquered to appear slimy. The tongue was designed to actually puncture objects during SFX inserts, and its ornate ridged details and biomechanical design hark back to H.R. Giger's original creature designs for Ridley Scott's Alien.
The tongue features two pieces of tape from production still wrapped around the pipe.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
