Stock #33129

Prop Store is proud to present an exclusive offering of ‘The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists’ stop motion puppets, props and set pieces from Aardman and Sony Pictures Animation.

The Pirate Captain finds himself face-to-face with this ghoulish pirate after storming a ship in an attempt to find gold. The Captain soon realises his mistake, but it’s too late as he learns that not only are the pirates ghosts, but he is standing on a ghost ship, which soon disappears leaving him with rather wet feet! Ghostly Pete’s clothing is foam latex, with his skin, curly brown hair and headscarf made from silicone. His head is resin with plasticine around his pose-able eyes. He features a removable mouthpiece made from ‘Rapid Prototyped’ resin with the handwritten reference ‘DBD’. His skin is silicone, with a small resin skull ring located on his right hand. Dan’s ghostly tail has been crafted from white plasticine, with internal wiring for added eerie movement! His upper body would have been animated by puppeteers via the intricate internal steel armature. Due to the delicate nature of the platicine, there are a small number of dents and slight marks in his plasticine ‘tail’, but he otherwise remains in fantastic production used condition. He is presented here on a custom-made display, and including his stand, measures approximately 43cm (17”) tall with the stand measuring approximately 15.5x14.5cm (6.25x5.75”) around the base.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
