Lot # 272 - Live Auction 2017 - Roger Derebridge (Nicholas Ball) Model Miniature Puppet

Stock #72600

A Roger Derebridge (Nicholas Ball) miniature puppet from Tobe Hooper's sci-fi horror film Lifeforce. British astronaut Derebridge donned a spacesuit when he ventured into an alien spaceship at the beginning of the film. Puppets were created for the model-miniature shots inside the spaceship.

The body is made of plaster and dressed in a baggy spandex spacesuit that is decorated with flag and emblem stickers at the shoulders. Attached to the chest via tape is a life-support-system box which is made of vacuum-formed plastic. The puppet is outfitted with a NASA Manned Maneuvering Unit, which is made of vacuum-formed plastic and decorated with various flag stickers and the Churchill mission logo. The puppet previously had wires attached to suspend the piece and make the legs kick; however, these wires have since been cut. The prop shows some wear due to production use and age, with a few torn stickers, and is missing a compartment door to the inside of the Manned Maneuvering Unit. The piece remains in good overall condition. Dimensions: 20 cm x 20 cm x 48 cm (8" x 8" x 19")
