Created by Academy Award®-winning special effects artist Rick Baker's Cinovation Studios, full-body puppets were required for the film's earlier scenes when the characters needed to be viewed in full.
The puppet's skin is made of foam latex, while the mechanical body is covered with soft black and white fur, featuring the puppet's signature mohawk hairstyle. The foam latex skin is fully painted and displays a high level of detail, with acrylic eyes, hand-punched hair on the chin, and painted fingernails and toenails.
A metal armature runs throughout the body and is connected to a pair of cables controlling the puppet's arms. Puppeteers operated the limbs and hands using the two plastic squeeze-trigger cable controls, although the trigger controlling the right hand is no longer functional. Displaying light signs of wear, with slight hardening and cracking to the foam latex on the hands and feet, the puppet remains in very good condition, and is presented on a custom-made light-up display stand. Dimensions (displayed): 40 cm x 38 cm x 51cm (15 3/4" x 15" x 20 1/4")
