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. In the film, 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 and seemingly blind to impossible odds, the Captain has one dream: to win 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.
This Royal Society bust used for the scenes where Charles Darwin (David Tennant) and the pirates attempted to win the grand prize by presenting Polly as their new discovery.
The plinth is made of resin and topped with a bust of Socrates. The plinth is finished in black and faux-gold paint with white and grey used to replicate the appearance of marble on the bust. It remains in very good condition with minimal additional wear from use and time spent in storage.
