A Thor hero animatronic puppet from the sci-fi television show Stargate: Atlantis (2004 – 2009).
The series follows an international team of scientists and military personnel who discover a new Stargate network in the Pegasus Galaxy and come face-to-face with a new enemy: The Wraith.
The advanced race led by Supreme Commander Thor featured in the show’s later seasons. This version of the puppet was the final one created by the special-effects team and was used to portray Thor and several other Asgard.
The piece has green/brown silicone skin, with shades of blue and red applied to create vein detailing and cast-in lines, highlighting the species’ skin texture. Two black plastic eyes, a set of visible plastic teeth and a faux-gold plated emblem with blue plastic jewels adorn the alien’s face. The puppet displays long, moveable limbs with plastic nails applied. Housed inside is a metal skeleton which contains an array of cables, wires and controls to work its functional limbs. Both elbow joints display a lever which features an incorporated bicycle brake cable and a handle which, when pressed, causes the wrist to bend. Mounted onto a metal pole, the back of the puppet displays an opening with popper and hook-and-eye fastenings, with wires and plastic cables running from the rear, towards the base.
Included with the puppet is a remote control labelled "BACKUP TRANSMITTER + RECEIVER MASTERS FX". One of the puppet’s wrists does not function properly when the handle is pressed and the silicone displays very minor wear. The animatronic puppet comes displayed on a black base which shows minor scratches. The lot is accompanied by a studio certificate of authenticity and overall remains in an excellent, production-used condition.
