Created by Academy Award®-winning special-effects artist Rick Baker's Cinovation Studios, full-body Mogwai puppets were used for the film's earlier scenes, when the characters needed to be viewed in full.
The puppet's skin is made of foam latex; the mechanical body is covered with soft brown, white and black faux fur. The foam latex skin is fully painted and displays a high level of detail, with acrylic eyes and painted fingernails and toenails. A metal armature runs throughout the body, connected to four cables controlling the puppet's arms and legs. A team of puppeteers operated the limbs and hands using the four plastic squeeze-trigger cable controls while on set. Displaying light signs of wear, with slight hardening and cracking to the foam latex on the feet, the puppet remains in very good condition, and is presented on a custom-made light-up display stand. Dimensions (displayed): 40 cm x 41 cm x 49 cm (15 3/4" x 16 1/4" x 19 1/4")
